I have some questions for you, Jessica.

Are you now a high school student thinking about entering the work world?

Are you considering going to college at the conclusion of high school?

Looking at your next comment I doubt that you are considering either option.

It sounds to me you are only wanting a midrange executive paying job, designed to take you over and above the rough spots.

It appears that you have done some “job” searching but seem to not find anything that can supply the benefits you need for openers.

Am I wrong? You want to leave the home you’ve lived in with a parent or parents (rent-free, I suspect) and really get into the upper thin air, where you will handle all the burdens?

Jessica, I can’t really applaud that kind of thinking. You’re really still very wet behind the ears.

It’s obvious you are not following the stories regarding Obama’s “health” care package that he expects not just the employer to contribute to but also you too will be required to donate to the cause.

You blame your parents’ inability to assist you financially in going to college. There are many local affordable colleges. Some even offer student loans.

How about trying for a scholarship? Some are great, some are not so great, but if you are fortunate to earn one, it all helps.

You really are different. I doubt if you’ll miss any of the big “reasons” for not making education happen. You say the past 60 years has shown that the more money you make (maybe earn), the less tax you pay. You want to change that. Why not try it first?

Based on some of your rapid conclusions, I feel that really all you are expecting is a lifetime of a free ride. This means you are not interested in doing anything. Jessica, in your last paragraph you talk about your America. You should write a letter sometime and really explain your America. Are you talking about entitlement?

What gives you the right to bash a gentleman such as Mitt Romney, his tax and all as an individual he has done for his country — America?

I hope you and others like you really do grow up and understand what America is all about.

I’m assuming you’re an Obama supporter. I’ll also assume you are old enough to have voted twice for him. In that area of voting did you just make one mistake or two?
