A National Disgrace | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

A National Disgrace

I am a blue-collar person. I have a wife, two daughters, and all the pleasure that that brings.

I am patriotic. I donate and give. I hold doors open for my elders. I let people in in traffic.

I do all for my children. And they are decent citizens. I lay my head on my pillow at night with no regrets. I am lucky. I know this. Family is everything. Money, nothing. Sad that even one of these high and mighty execs would not forfeit this bonus in the name of America.

That's what America is. "At our best when things are worst". Rings true.

AIG is a disgrace. They are walking on the very hallowed ground laid down by our forefathers.

Pay your taxes and complain. Let's take the reins again. It has to STOP!!!
