“Republicans aren’t focused on jobs, just on wrecking Obama’s legacy”

Susan Jhirad

I DON’T know which is more appalling — the proposal to spend our tax dollars on building a wall to keep out desperate immigrants fleeing poverty and violence, or Bristol Sheriff Hodgson’s idea that it be done by prison labor. He apparently doesn’t see the contradiction between his claim that keeping out immigrants will “save jobs” and using unpaid labor instead of union construction workers for the job.


But why expect logic from proposals based mainly on prejudice and hate? I might add that those who supported Republicans because they believe in “the right to life” apparently ignore the fact that, according to a recent estimate by Nicholas Kristof in The New York Times, over 8,000 people a year may die when their Obamacare and Medicaid are taken away.”

This was written by Susan Jhirad, “Professor in the English department at North Shore Community College, Danvers, MA.

Susan Jhirad, Ph.D., is the author of Dickens’ Inferno: The Moral World of Charles Dickens (Leap Year Press, 2013). She is the head of the worship committee at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Medford, Massachusetts.”

Her Unitarian Universalist church connection has not made her very understanding.
