-- Media: Hope you're happy with recession - Don Loresch, Elmhurst
http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=254148&src=
(THE LETTER: It's here and I hope the media is happy. What's here is the recession that the media has been advertising for the last two years to help Obama become the president. The American people have finally bought your line, and this is what we have. We are now in a full-blown recession with many other bad outlooks on the horizon. The American people have stopped spending money, the housing market is in the tank and all three of the automakers are in deep trouble because we are not buying their cars. I believe this is exactly what the media wanted so they could help push their agenda of electing a Democrat. Well, they have their president and the ones who are losing are the American people and American businesses. Our government has pushed more and more foreign products into our country by giving favored nation status to totalitarian governments and sweat shop countries so they could drive American products off the market and again it worked, as we do not produce anything anymore. I think this is the very reason the American people should stop listening to the media and our government and do the right thing. Do not buy foreign products, and if you can't find American products and you don't need it, do not buy it. It helps no one but the country where the product is made, so do not buy it. This will add to the recession in the world, and then we will all be in the same boat and just maybe, we can bring jobs back to our country. This is the rhetoric of our politicians, but they have no plan.)
-- Catholic bishops need some change - George Kocan, Warrenville
http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=254149&src=
(THE LETTER: The Catholic bishops helped elect Barack Obama to the presidency, and now they vow to oppose him over the issue of abortion. This does not make any sense. Catholics voted 54 percent in favor of Obama while voting 47 percent for John McCain. A survey of Chicago Catholic priests done a few years ago showed that 75 percent of them voted for Democrats. They voted for a party that stands for abortion and other agenda items of sexual liberation. Every year around Thanksgiving time, the bishops collect money for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. Last year this Saul Alinsky-inspired funding mechanism gave $1 million in grants to ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), another Alinsky-inspired group. During the past 10 years, it gave more than $7 million to ACORN. ACORN works on the Democrat agenda and trains people to help Democrats win elections. Both Obama and Hillary Clinton, Democrats with high leadership positions, worked for ACORN and learned the techniques and philosophy of Alinsky community organizing. The bishops likewise funded other Alinsky organizations like the Industrial Areas Foundation, which work to advance the Democrat agenda. The CCHD does not feed, clothe or house poor people. It works strictly for "structural change," just like Obama and the other Democrats do. Conversely, CCHD does not give any money to pro-life organizations like Joe Scheidler's Pro-Life Action League, although there is no doubt that PAL works also for "structural change." What the Catholic bishops need is some structural change. They should, perhaps, change the name of CCHD to something more open and honest, like the Catholic Campaign to Help Democrats.)
