This Letter to the Editor appeared in my local newspaper and was written by a friend of mine.  She is a very talented writer, and we share a number of political viewpoints.  I think that many of you will enjoy it.  Please feel free to post comments.   —   YUR

Although pleased regarding the decision to withdraw our troops from Iraq, we’ll still be there in large measure in a so-called diplomatic presence requiring independent contractors.  

Corporate influences will still be paramount and coddled by this burgeoning community called “The Green Zone.” Meanwhile, the people of Iraq live in the unimaginably dangerous rubble of war.

President Obama boasts of fulfilling his Promise. But he fails to recognize the spirit and implications of that promise.  Lying by omission is at the heart of the cancer that continues to plague our ability to shape our future. The Obama Administration has thrown us a bone. I’ll be happy to have the troops back among us, but don’t expect me to celebrate while I’m still choking on the lie.

Corporations that seek ultimate influence over governmental power have disqualified themselves from leadership in our Democracy. We must: Reinstate Glass- Steagall regulations; junk hackable computer-scanner voting machines; reverse the damaging Citizens United Supreme court ruling ; deny more bailouts for corporations or banks; kick out Supreme Court Justices who betray the job description; and put our arms manufacturers to work making America green.

We’re internationally applauded for our past struggles for human rights, not the proliferation of corporate greed at the expense of the people who have made this country great.
