Reader’s view: Government needs to get back to basicsAll this talk about a budget. Why don’t male elected officers ask their wives or mistresses or girlfriends for a clue? Women are good at budgets.

Now they talk about Social Security and Medicare, but you never hear about cutting their wages for doing nothing. One of the worst congresses in history.
There’s talk about another Bush. Heaven forbid! No. 1 invaded Iraq for weapons; none were found. No. 2 landed on a carrier, mission accomplished. Still American lives are wasted on two horrible wars with no end. Russia got out of Afghanistan (smart). We need another Bush like a bad toothache.
Another thing, postage went up a penny (not bad), yet the Postal Service paid millions to sponsor Lance Armstrong, and I’m losing my Saturday mail. Come on, get real!
Government gives millions of dollars and arms to whom? The radicals! Funny how all this disappears from sight. Nobody knows who got it, and Americans are struggling. We need jobs and more jobs.
About gay marriage: let them shack up like everybody else. They’re in love; big deal. What’s the problem?
This government has got to get down to the basics. Let’s go back to the original Constitution. It might work for the better.
