Health care decision a win for everyone

To the editor:

The Supreme Court decision to uphold ObamaCare is one of the greatest things to ever happen in our great country.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that if everyone has health care and receives preventive care and early treatment of illness, they will not be in the emergency rooms and hospitals. Therefore health care costs will not rise as fast as they have been. This helps everyone.

Also, it will allow a lot of hardworking, taxpaying, good Americans and their families to have good health care they otherwise could not afford.

Horse sense

To the editor:

In response to the June 18 letter, "Wild horse roundup could lead to slaughter":

Well, in case you haven’t heard, officials at the Bureau of Land Management lost their minds approximately 45,000 wild horses ago.

Agency officials claim to be conducting a management program, but in reality it is "methodical genocide." I guess there is not enough money generated in the preservation of our wild mustangs, so they must pay the very steep price.

If Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., is the only one opposing this effort, then I would have to say he is one of the more human of the politicians. He, after all, seems to have a conscience and is willing to stand up for what is right.

Remember, these wild mustangs are just one of the species targeted by our government They cannot speak for themselves. They need us to become more involved and do what’s right. We must call our representatives and oppose any further inhumane roundups and warehousing of our wild mustangs. One phone call from each of us could save the lives of several foals if we do it in time.

These wild mustangs are federally protected, yet BLM is allowed to abuse them under the heading of a "management program." Just because these people work for BLM doesn’t mean they should be exempt from the law.

They have been guilty of some of the most horrific cruel acts to animals in history on a large scale.

No compassion

To the editor:

The headline on page 3B of the June 21 Review-Journal, printed directly above a photo of the North Schell Fire, reads "Burn, Ely, Burn."

Where is the compassion? Compassion for the brave firefighters, who risk their lives to contain this blaze? Compassion for their families? Compassion for the animals and birds in this stricken area? Compassion for anyone who inhales the smoke, knowing the damage it does to the lungs?

Perhaps an article expressing gratitude for their courage would be appropriate.
