Letter: Where are critical thinkers?

Where are critical thinkers?

I have to assume, due to a tidal wave of hate mail by the conservative minds of Douglas County, that they do not believe in global warming. They also do not believe in gun control, abortion and reforming immigration. Their letters appear to lump together Muslim, socialist and fascist – how come they omitted my kind, the Jews?

Why is it there is no discussion about the destructive growth of the financial sector, allowing the five largest banks who hold assets equal to 56% of the total U.S. economy to still remain too big to fail?

Yes, it is true of the past, that civilizations decay and die, ultimately lapsing into plutocracy. Can you see this man-made madness happening here?

If you study the Republicans in Washington and in the state congresses, their entire focus is on abortion when our bridges are failing and employment is hard to come by. Can that be another ploy to gain control of the female population and make Obama look like a nothing president? I wonder how that will go over in 2016.
