Letter: Who’s worthy? Apparently not Dems

I am retired, a former Denver resident, a former lifelong Republican, and am now living in Eagle Ranch. As of this writing, some 800,000 federal employees are on furlough due to the partial government shutdown. Our president says that “a lot of them are Democrats,”  presumably to make the pain of “no paycheck” not so great. Evidently, the Democrats caught in the net are less worthy than the Republicans when it comes to family living.

There are probably a lot of African-Americans among that 800,000, and no doubt a number of Hispanic people with ties to probable terrorists, murderers, rapists, and thieves. We should probably take them out of the number feeling the pain of the shutdown. Most of them are probably Democrats anyway.

I know that political party is not the same as religion, or skin color and ethnic origin, but if the president insists on drawing the line, soon Democrats will have to wear armbands to identify themselves! It is so difficult to identify worthiness without markings.

Even if the shutdown ends before you receive this email, the point remains. Our president is taking discrimination to a new level.
