Jeff Loberg: There’s plenty to be scared of

In his letter to the editor, it’s clear that Ron Lowe has been drinking the CNN/NBC supplied Kool-Aid for far too long!

In his Feb. 3 letter he states “the Republicans are delusional” with regard to our security and our economy. He once again fails to see the influx of Muslim refugees as a security risk. He also misses the mark when referring to the “boom time” economy ahead.

Our security is at its greatest risk since World War II. Radical Muslims have infiltrated our borders north and south, and our president does nothing but invite them in! Obama refuses to recognize them as radical Islamic terrorists. What is it going to take to convince him? A large city being blown off the map would not convince him of the threat!

As for our “booming economy,” growth has been anemic at best, and we are teetering on reverting to a recession at any time. The stock market is on the brink of failure, and oil, the engine of our economy, is now at such low prices that related businesses are going out of business due to world production gluts. Sure it’s great for our short-term gas prices, but bad for our economic growth.
