Questions for the Summit Daily left

Our parents were there for us and guiding us when we were young. Many of us:

• graduated and paid for our own advanced or technical educations.

• helped finance our children’s and grandchildren’s educations.

• have been there to help guide our children and grandchildren — like our parents.

• take care of our elderly parents — we just call that payback.

• pay more than our fair share in local, state and federal taxes.

• employ people in meaningful jobs with fair wages.

• donate to local charities like FIRC, the Summit Foundation, etc.

• help those in need.

• help provide scholarships for Summit County High School students.

• donate freely of our time to various civil and nonprofit organizations.

We could go on and on, but we think you get our point — we will help others as long as we are able.

So, what else does your left and/or far left of center editorialists like Tina Dupuy, Will Durst, Mike Littwin and Dave Sirota want from us? Do they want us to quit doing all of the above? What on earth will make them happy?

They remind me of a verse in the Eagle’s “Get Over It” song : You don’t want to work, you want to live like a king, the big bad world doesn’t owe you a thing — get over it!!!

My 100-plus-year-old mother many years ago told me that when one points a finger at another person, there are three of your own fingers pointing back at you.
