A Letter From the Editor
An Editorial from Editor-in-Chief Jack Ragner
An Open Letter to Sen. Haukos,
In two letters sent to The Global Press headquarters, you have reaffirmed your support of the "Increased Alcohol Rights for Americans Act." While the letters gave minimal explanation on your position other then that the Act will increase sales of Alcohol which can be taxed and controlled through taxation. The question that these letters raise is who will buy more alcohol other then teenagers? In reality, no one will increase consumption except teenagers. If teen binge drinking is a national problem, and the Act will increase alcohol consumption which will logically only be picked up by teenagers, then how will this Act help Americans? Isn't it simply going remove the stigma attached to irresponsible teen drinking? This stigma is the last defense against all of our children going out to drink themselves to death. We already are going to have future problems with Social Security and Medicare, how will killing the newest source of tax revenue and the only people paying Social Security help our nation? It seems that this new bill seems short sighted, and ignorant.
While we're on the topic of ignorance, your ignorance of today's media is astonishing. It seems to me that anyone seeking to retain office would memorize at least a few key members of today's media. While I have great respect for The Global Press's founder and his son who succeeded him, I am not a member of the Saratom family. At the end of the letters that I have sent you, I signed my name. And even as you substituted my name for our great founder, you didn't even have the courtesy to spell his name right. As the protégé of Mr. Saratom's son, it offends me greatly to see my mentors name misspelled not once, but twice. It seems wise to me that a senator such as yourself review both your history, and the names of current media personnel.
These letters raise an important question, one that no citizen should have to ask about a senator while s/he is in office. Your advocacy of the deaths of our nations future business persons, soldiers, leaders, doctors, scientists, and other important citizens, and inability to remember simple history nor the name of today's editor-in-chief of a paper read by more then 750 million people worldwide worries me greatly. So greatly in fact, that I must ask the questions on the mind of the nation. Do you really know what's best for the nation? Do you really represent your constituents? If you truly do represent your constituents' wishes then God help us all.
