Letter to the Editor: Bush didn’t help my stocks

Paula Wickstrom

Are you kidding me? Mike Thorton’s article is ridiculous, and the fact that it was even published makes me wonder about the Sierra Sun and the people who work there.

I could address each and every piece of fiction that he states, but since I am only allowed a certain amount of words, I won’t. I am not sure how Mr. Thorton’s stocks rose over the last year, but mine from Jan. 1, 2008, to Dec. 31, 2008, lost $25,000.

Who was in president then? Obama, I don’t think so. Know your facts before you decide to write an article.

My businesses have suffered in the past year due to the economy, when Bush “the best President” was in charge. I have friends losing their houses, when Bush “the best President” was in charge.

Bush will go down as the worst president, because guess what, he was.
