Letters to the editor

Squeaky wheel

It seems like the people that have the no-fault insurance would sit up and take notice of the triple-dipping going on with your medical insurance. Here are three examples that you need to think about and start talking to your neighbors and all your friends: You, the senior citizens, are paying Medicare each month; you are paying a premium on your health insurance each month; and under your car insurance, you are covered with medical insurance. That medical insurance on your car is added into your policy that you pay on every six months.

No one has complained, and the legislator will not say a word and will not make a move to help the poor suckers like you and I until election time, if at all. Get on your phone or email your representative and show them you're not as dumb as they think you are. In this world you have to fight every inch of the way. Don't sit back and take their abuse. Fight back. Not only this insurance problem, but anything else you don't approve of. Remember this: the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Gay rights

In an uncharacteristic move, Leonard Pitts momentarily ceased trying to convince readers that the Civil War was still being waged. Instead he takes on Christians in his recent column titled, "Again, Christianity is the last to get it right" and lambasts them for being slow to recognize gay rights. Oddly, he makes no mention of the Muslim religion that in several countries calls for the death penalty for homosexuals.

Political chameleon

Reading the April 10 letters to the editor, I have come to the conclusion that Florida has little or no choice in picking a worthwhile governor. The candidates to date are the incumbent Mr. Scott and the challenger being Mr. Crist

Mr. Ludacer in his letter decries of how Mr. Scott earned his personal wealth. He refers to Mr. Scott as an "economic chameleon."

Mr. Carmony's letter tells about his staggering out-of-pocket expenses for his wife's surgery while being insured under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Then we have Charlie Crist, former governor of Florida. He has been a Republican, an Independent, a Democrat and an advocate for Obama and Obamacare.

Referring back to Mr. Ludacer's letter, I would classify Mr. Crist as a "political chameleon." Therefore, my statement about poor choice when it comes to choosing a governor.
