Write A Letter!

Filed under: American Empire, New Priorities — Tags: , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 7:13 am

Op-ed opportunity: January 17, Martin Luther King Day, is also the 50th anniversary of Eisenhower’s “military industrial complex” speech. What a moment for a letter to the editor or op-ed! The wars are dragging on; our states and cities are screaming for economic relief; the Secretary of Defense just proposed “cuts” that will feed the military industrial complex… We’ll stop here and let you write your own letter. 
Go to http://publishaletter.com/writealetter.jsp.  It couldn’t be easier.

Sometimes the letters to the editor of the NY Times are so good and so interesting that they deserve a special look.

Letters About Social Security

Filed under: economics, Social Security — Tags: , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 9:12 am

Sometimes the letters to the Editor of the New York Times consitute some of the best thinking and writing.  Today’s letters about Social Security seem to fit that description, and you are urged to read them and contemplate their collective wisdom.

Letters About Social Security

We often find that some of the best “op-ed” pieces in The Times are letters to the editor.  These were published August 23 and make some excellent points.  Our favorite senator, Bernie Sanders, says all we have to do is seriously raise the payroll cap and we can make Social Security safe for at least 75 years.  Is anybody listening?
