GOP shows no concern for those sent to war

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Here I go again.

To the young men: Do not enlist in the armed forces. The GOP doesn’t want them to come back from any war they dreamed up, lest they have to foot the bill for artificial limbs or anything else they gave up for their country.

They are at the bottom of the list of anything that doesn’t make them money, but if they go to war, the money they need will magically appear, taken from food stamps, Social Security, the post office, veterans’ benefits, education, etc., etc., etc.

The Republican appetite cannot be quenched. Send them to war. Maybe they won’t come back either.

"State Fair" opens at the New Castle Playhouse tonight. Will you be checking out the show?

Definitely! I've already got my tickets.
Maybe. I'm not sure.
Nah, it's not for me.
