Michael F. Hammond writes "Although we have used this forum in
the past to criticize Senator Grassley for his attacks on the

(a) Dear Editor:
Mr. Robert's letter (11/23/09 ID) written about "right to
exclude" at the collective will of the (majority) group of the
people. This is exactly tyranny of the majority up on the
minorities, where heterosexual people can deny the rights of gays
to get equal rights and protection in marriage, and it's
perfectly fine to segregate public services such as transit
system sitting based on skin color and races if this is also the
will of the (majority) of the people. I am fine with it as long
as anyone can accept the fact being minorities mean it's ok to be
persecuted and discriminated against. Non muslims living in
Muslims majority countries should not complaint about any
persecution for being minorities there. I am also fine with all
draconian immigration laws and exclusion as long as it's applied
retroactively 400 years from today just right before illegal
European settlers setting up their illegal feet on Western
Hemisphere. Republicans and conservatives have no credibility on
morality issues, family values and fiscal sanity and common
sense. We have more than enough hypocrisy on gay bashing gay in
the closet conservative politicians and preachers and unfaithful
ones cheating on their spouses. Balking on health care costs and
soaring deficit and put the blame of liberals and Democrats while
say none that these debt and deficit are inherited from costly
wars started by warmonger right wing politicians and previous
Republican regime. I was sick to my stomach watching
"conservative" pundits like Glen Beck and Lou Dobbs daily rants
about liberal "tax and spend" policies and illegal immigrants
ruin and bankrupt the nation while say none to the costs of wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan and tax cuts on the wealthiest of wealthy
Americans while we need extra money to cover the costs.

    In my view An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An enterprising person is one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development. An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity in all areas of life. To be enterprising is to keep your eyes open and your mind active. It's to be skilled enough, confident enough, creative enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities that present themselves... regardless of the economy.
