An excellent letter to the editor appearing in the August 17, 2012, issue of The Franklin Press written by Alta Young.

Those weekly unemployment numbers put out by the Obama administrations’ Bureau of Labor Statistics never add up. And the liberal media never does report the true unemployment rate that is much closer to 15 percent.

Conservatives Responsible for “Occupy Wall Street” Protests?

Mr. Louis Vitale, Macon County’s local liberal/progressive propagandist really outdid himself in his November 16, 2011 opinion piece in The Franklin Press.

Bob Blaske – Anti-Tea Party letter writer missed some key points

The letter to the editor shown below appeared in The Franklin Press on September 9, 2011.

It was another response to the letter written by Louis Vitale appearing in the August 21, 2011 The Franklin Press which was the progressive/liberal’s broad-brush characterization of the tea party.

Mr. Blaske’s answer is an excellent example of how to thoughtfully respond to tea party attacks by the progressive/liberals. Bravo! Continue reading
