Letters: Let the market decide the cost of things

In a rare moment of lucidity, the state Legislature scrapped its plan to regulate prices for products appealing to girls. I’m sure the trial attorneys are crying in their soup over a whole new arena of litigation stopped in its tracks – for now.

Here’s a simple solution: Let free market capitalism fix the problem. When any of us consumers sees an overpriced woman’s product, just say “no.” Buy the cheaper generic version instead, and since those female products will remain unsold, the merchants will mark those prices down to get them off the shelf. Voila! Problem solved, without a single law passed or penalty assessed. Isn’t free market capitalism great? The consumer always has the final say.

Republicans and Hispanics

Ever wonder the real reason Republicans are so opposed to amnesty or paths of citizenship for Hispanics? Let me tell you. When they become citizens, they register to vote, and 85 percent vote Democrat. Those 10 million more Democrats would certainly put a number of swing states in the Democrat column.

Of course the exception to this scenario is Cubans, who vote Republican by roughly the same margin. It is a known fact that any Cuban refugee who sets foot on the U.S. mainland is automatically granted asylum and a swift path to citizenship.

The GOP and its flunkies can make up all kinds of fairy tales about murders, rapists and terrorists coming across the border and the need to deport all illegals and build a wall, but the truth is the one-sided, pick-and-choose mentality of the GOP.

Send in the clowns

Re: “State ballot could have up to 18 measures” [News, July 1]: I just read that one of the potential ballot measures on the November ballot is whether or not porn stars must wear a condom while filming. Isn’t this a monumental waste of taxpayer dollars? Not to mention all the ink used. Another example of political idiocy.

I think our state has enough major issues to be concerned about, not whether or not pornographic actors, who chose this profession, should wear condoms. It defies rationality. Makes me think anyone in political office should have to take an IQ test before being eligible. Send in the clowns. Actually, don’t bother. They’re already here.
