(a) Dear Editor:
There is no doubt that, just as Jim Roberts' latest letter states
(02/12/10 ID), the common ground in our previous recent letters
was short lived indeed. I had hoped that our letters' small area
of agreement would last a little longer, since I used to live in
Mr. Roberts' state of Arizona (according to his letter) for about
a year (the same year in which the attack on Pearl Harbor took
place, though I was far too young at the time to remember
anything about it). But any possibility of agreement ends with
Mr. Roberts' letter's support of the infamous literacy tests that
were used for so many decades to deny the vote to African-
Americans. Almost by definition, these tests were impossible to
pass. When I was a law student In the early 1960's, there was an
apocryphal story about an African-American applicant who was
supposedly given a Chinese newspaper for the reading test by a
Southern white voting registrar. According to the story, the
applicant answered that he couldn't read the smaller characters,
but he had no trouble with the headline. Amazed, the registrar
asked him what the headline said. His replied that it read: "No
black people are voting in Georgia this year." This illustrates
the point, also made clear by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann,
that the voting literacy tests were never meant to be objective.
They were only used in order to ensure that minority applicants
would fail. It would be absurd to think that Tancredo had
forgotten this dismal piece of 20th Century history when he, to
his lasting disgrace, recommended bringing these notorious tests
back to stop Latino US citizens for voting, in the 21st Century.

(b) Dear Editor:
Conservatives and its movement such as Tea Party are in confused
and delusional state on their own principles and values. They
don't know how to reconcile between their emphasize on the
Constitution that includes the secular principle of Separation
Church and State by wrongfully mixing their extreme Judeo-
Christianity belief into national policies and laws, between the
call of Christ to be good Samaritans, showing compassion to
strangers and sharing to the needies and preach the Gospel of
God's "amnesty" to sinful mankind and yes, God believes and is
offering second chance to all mankind if they repent while
insisting some of their human beings should be deported and
separated from their loved ones and should never be given any
kind of "amnesty" just because they have broken racist and
apartheid man made immigration laws to justify protectionism for
the sake of sefish nativism. By demanding that same sex marriage
should be illegal but not demanding divorces be illegal and not
to mention holier than thou supposed to be conservative
politicians got busted cheating on their spouses, getting
involved in same sex unwanted advances and scandals and sleeping
with prostitutes and still refused to resign while preaching on
others to uphold moral values and "sanctity of marriage". Where
are the Tea Partiers' voice on the 1 trillion cost of wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan with all of its wastes and corruptions while
they balk and condemn the cost of health care bill and welfare
taken by poor Americans and "illegal" immigrants? It's time to
restore common sense in our national policies and politics and
uphold its integrity level. We have enough of endless hypocrisy.
