I’m tired of reading Bill Richardson’s articles where he rallies against any sort of regulation over guns (Latest, “Gun-free zone is truly fatal conceit,” AFN, Dec. 11). His entire argument is to make good the enemy of perfect. He continually gives statistics about how individuals who want to do bad things will do bad things. I agree.
In 1945 all of the industrial nations met in Breton Woods, N.H., to discuss currencies in a global environment. These nations decided that the American dollar should be the international currency, because it was gold backed, America was the leading manufacturing giant, and was a responsible country. All of these nations pledged to peg their currency to the dollar, as it was gold backed, making their currency gold backed. Things changed through the years, as in 1971 Nixon removed the gold backing from the dollar, showing irresponsibility to the rest of the world. America then started to expand its money supply from $800 billion to $2.4 trillion (in 2010). So, we made a conscious decision to inflate the dollar by 200 percent. Forcing all of the countries that were pegged to the dollar to expand their money supply, in order to keep the same currency conversions.

Mike McClellan asks why we are so shocked that 6,500 reports of child abuse were not investigated (“Why won’t our government think of the children?” AFN, Dec. 6). I am not surprised. I came to Arizona over 20 years ago as a Child Protective Services (CPS) worker. I had been a part of a unit in California in which all of the workers had master’s degrees in social work or family therapy. Most of our cases were families who had come to the attention of the agency but were not severe enough to involve the Juvenile Court. Families voluntarily accepted prevention services. Not surprisingly, we had the lowest per capita foster care placement in the country. Even when our cases were in court, the system — from the judge to the attorneys representing the parents — held as a central principle the best interests of the children.
