Delusional politics

You would think from Jerry Galland and W. Riedel's letters to the editor (Auburn Reporter, Oct. 2 and 16, respectively) that a bunch of scary, homeless firefighters were intimidating motorists for money in order to go buy cheap booze or meth.

You would think from Jerry Galland and W. Riedel’s letters to the editor (Auburn Reporter, Oct. 2 and 16, respectively) that a bunch of scary, homeless firefighters were intimidating motorists for money in order to go buy cheap booze or meth.

Of course, the truth is that they were volunteering their time to solicit charitable donations. Were Galland and Riedel somehow robbed of their spare change?

Amazingly, Riedel even found a correlation between the firefighters’ activities and perceived “violations” by Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama.

I wonder what Mr. Riedel knows about any alleged lawbreaking by Secretary Clinton that eight investigations, to date, have not revealed.

I also wonder how he feels about the fact that President Obama’s “extra-constitutional” actions (read: executive orders) number less than each of the totals signed by his two predecessors, and number, in fact, within a very modest range compared to most presidents of the last hundred years.

I guess that, as with politics, all delusions are local.
