My rebuttal

— — — —  

Dear editor:

Because of the phone calls supporting the letter I wrote and one person who did not who wrote a letter to the editor taking me to task, I will try to defend myself.

While it is true I took excerpts from someone else, the facts are true. The point he tried to make about my math skills is untrue. Maybe he should have used regular math instead of algebra to do his math. The only use I have ever had from algebra is to figure how much paint I need to buy to paint a room.

He made no mention about the fact that Congress and the president took out Social Security funds and put them in the general fund, because they put the government into a position where they were desperate and they took our money.

 This money was used to pay for things like foreign aid to people who would not spit on an American if he was on fire. Foreign aid is a waste of our money that could be used to pay down our debt. He made no mention that they have never paid one penny back. This was done by a Democratic president.

He lied when he said that all illegals who work in the U. S. pay into Social Security. Only the ones who are paid by check pay anything, the ones who are paid cash pay nothing. Their employer tells them that they are responsible for their own Social Security but does nothing to see that it is paid. The farmer saves the money he would be required to pay.

It is also untrue that you must pay into Social Security to receive payments from them. There are people who have never paid a dime into Social Security who receive more money than the people who have paid all their working lives.

And by the way, someone needs to tell Obama that every time he or his family jumps on Air Force I or II it cost the taxpayers tons of money. I once wrote that Obama had the same gift of speech that Hitler had and someone said that I was comparing Obama to Hitler. At that time I stated that I was only referring to his gift of gab, but over time I have been wrong about that.

Thanks for the support shown by people who called, here is the letter you wanted me to write.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
