Voters: elections have consequences | Letters, Dec. 20

What is going on in this state? Voters elect a “tax and spend” governor who has run up a projected debt of billions.
School students no longer can say “Merry Christmas.” It has to be “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” or some other nonsensical greeting.
For the politically correct and others who misunderstand. Federal and state holiday of Christmas is to recognize Christmas. It has been celebrated as the birth of Christ for decades around the world.
Then there is the issue of a politically correct governor allowing placement of an atheist placard next to a manger scene. Once again, the manger scene is a long-standing tradition, a world-wide symbol of Christmas.
I’ll bet the governor would not allow the atheist placard next to a picture of Muhammad. The affront to the Muslim religion would not be taken so lightly.
Then there are the actions of greedy lawyers who figure they can get rich from a sexual harassment lawsuit. The owners were absolved of any complicity.
The business is an extension of the owners and should have also been absolved. Reasonable fees for the plaintiff’s lawyers should be one-third of the judgment,
Hey voters! Elections have consequences.
