Letter: Stop wasting your money, Iowans

Dear Iowans,

C’mon, get on the ball! Stop spending your paychecks on booze, women and movies! We got a lot of “American carnage” out there and this nation is in terrible fiscal shape. Oh, I know, you’ll have the usual excuses: “I don’t make enough to invest” “I’m barely getting by as it is.” “I have all these doctor bills” “I’ve gotta put food on the table.” “I have a mortgages to pay”. Bullfeather and poppycock, I say! As conservatives have pointed out so well, it’s your own fault that you are not making $75,000 to $150,000 a year. So get out there and get to it! We’ve got a business — sorry — a country to run!
