Taxed enough already, favors same-sex marriage

TumwaterNovember 17, 2012 

Martin Kimmeldorf must have a family member or friend at The Olympian since every vitriolic letter he submits is printed. For everyone who embraces his poisonous rants let me expand your tiny minds.

I am a conservative. I volunteer. I donate. I recycle. I walk for causes. I put two kids through college. I voted for same-sex marriage. I am not a racist. I have black friends. Good ones, too.

I support the tea party because I believe what their initials stand for: I am Taxed Enough Already. I believe in a hand up but not a lifelong handout. I do not think that takers should outnumber givers.

The petty are name-callers because they are absent sustainable facts. The narrow-minded focus on blaming someone else and not taking responsibility.

And, finally, the weak resort to lies because the truth has been re-purposed into self-serving arrogance and empty symbolism. It’s a wasteful shame to only require crumbs of your elected officials.

They are eager to live up to your expectations while they re-distribute the remaining loaf to those who have never even been in the kitchen.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
