McInnis has vision problem

Dear Editor,

In the Glenwood Springs Post Independent article dated March 6, Rep. Scott McInnis shows his displeasure with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for their donations to the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). Rep. McInnis describes ELF as “the single largest domestic terrorism threat in our country right now.”

Sometimes Rep. McInnis has 20-20 vision, and sometimes he is blind in one eye and refuses to open his other eye.

As our United States House Representative, Mr. McInnis supports the world’s largest domestic and foreign terrorist organization, the United Nations. Rep. McInnis refers to these terrorist countries in the United Nations as spoiled children and believes the United States should maintain our membership in the United Nations so the United States can reform and veto the spoiled terrorist countries while the United States taxpayer pays 20 to 30 percent of the terrorists’ bills.

Maybe, just maybe, maybe, maybe, PETA is trying to reform the spoiled children in ELF with a few surplus dollars. Sounds politically reasonable, doesn’t it, Mr. McInnis?

For many years the American Sovereignty Restoration Act, HR1146, has been introduced in the United States Congress. HR1146 would remove the United States from the United Nations and the United Nations with its spoiled terrorist children from United States soil. Mr. McInnis has always voted against HR1146. Makes me wonder if Mr. McInnis can see at all. Maybe, just maybe, it’s a political job-related disability caused from being a public servant for too long.
