“Give me a break.” Our “new” president announced he was closing Guantanamo Detention Center. How does he know this is a wise decision?

Where is he going to send the present residents? If they were not dangerous to society and particularly to the United States they would not be there in the first place. I also wonder what the results would be if he polled all the families that lost loved ones on 9/11.

A letter writer last week blamed 9/11 on past President George Bush. He was in office for less than nine months, and the terrorists had blatantly planned and trained in the United States for at least five years before the attack. This all occurred on past president Bill “I did nothing wrong” Clinton. I am also very disappointed in Obama for nominating a blatant “tax evader” to a Cabinet post that supervises the IRS. Several years ago I was “selected” for an income-tax audit. After three hours of a grueling examination by a very rude IRS agent, he decided that the government owed me $17. I wanted out of there so bad, I donated my $17 to the government.

How much was it that this guy conveniently forgot to pay? It is going to be a very long four years.
