Less is more, cheaper goods, lower pay and more money to business — that has been the goal of our hedonistic corporate government for decades now [“Identity Theft,” Nov. 30 Xpress].
American flags are made in China. "As American as apple pie" is probably now made from products from anywhere but America. Opinions are squashed (as they were at the meeting for the massive change in the Postal Service: “they” didn’t want to hear your opinion, as they are as Occupy Wall Street protesters have been hurt and hidden away, etc. Our American jobs have been shipped overseas. Lift the hood of your Ford and Chevy, how many American-made parts can you find? Any? Bye bye, Ms. American Pie.
Our identity is being stolen; that’s not new. On the Internet, “I” exist as an IP address where the government or just about anyone can get all the information they want on me and it can be used. One day in the not too distant future, we won’t have an identity that can be taken. We’ll be just a number and our humanness and free thinking will also be removed from the map just as Asheville will drop off the face of the U.S. (not “made in America”) map. The suggestion is that the Postal Service is accepting public comment. I’m sure they are then tossing it into the shredder.
