Letter to the Editor: Do Over, Anyone?

It appears the President-elect’s definition of draining the swamp, is turning it into a sinkhole. I’m not going to list all his cabinet appointments, it’s simply too depressing. When the reports are that the sharpest of the lot is nicknamed “Mad Dog” that pretty much sums things up.

I do think his choice for secretary of labor, a fast food mogul who made millions off the backs of workers making $7.25 an hour, who opposes a minimum wage of $15, is a travesty. If this is the President-elect’s way of thanking the hardworking blue collar workers of this country, who were largely responsible for his election, it is despicable. I suggest before you go to sleep Jan. 19, turn back your clocks 65 years. The way I see it, the morning after, we have two options: Hibernate for the next four years, or, I’ll see you on the picket line.
