Opinion

Donald Cullinane's letter of Feb. 7 was an accurate presentation of facts that showed Congressman Gary Ackerman is a few turnips short of a full load on his truck. The letter made me realize that Ackerman is not smart enough to know what he has done, for he admits nothing.

If a congressman (Dec. 2007) is in the 2 percent block that votes against a resolution that recognizes the significance of Christmas, it appears that the congressman (Ackerman) has something against Christmas, as 372 others voted to support the resolution.

If a congressman (Dec. 2005) is in the 5 percent block that votes against a resolution that recognizes the importance of Christmas, it appears he (Ackerman) has something against Christmas, as 401 others voted to support the resolution.

When you consider Ackerman's moves to support two resolutions last year to recognize the significance of the Muslim holiday Ramadan and the Hindu holiday of Diwali, it certainly looks like Ackerman is displaying an anti-Christmas bent. How else can one explain Ackerman's positions in the four resolutions voted on by the congressmen.

Logic would appear to disrobe Ackerman's, however the man claims he is not anti-Christian, according to Cullinane's letter. Maybe Ackerman is not anti-Christian, or anti-Christmas, and his illogical voting pattern, considering his district makeup, is not enough to prove it.

Still, Ackerman has succeeded in showing that his turnip truck is missing some turnips. Anyone who votes for Ackerman in the future will be making a mistake if they expect him to represent the best interests of the majority of the people in his district.
