Ehrlich's thoughtless rhetoric is demeaning

There is one thing in our political discourse that bothers me greatly, and that is how we so easily denigrate tens to hundreds of millions of our fellow Americans to express our biases ("How the welfare state has grown — and sapped America's economy and culture" April 7). There is no excuse for it. It is so demeaning. It reminds me of one of the Star Wars movies, where the Death Star destroys a whole planet. Just like that. Rid of it, them.

It just tires me out.
