Spend time Googling ‘satire’

Dear Editor:

Rather than defending “the most consequential document in American history” (Dec. 11 opinion page), Mr. Gabl’s time might be better spent Googling “satire;” nevertheless, in his defending arguments there is a point worth reviewing.

Unfortunately, the “American Dream,” where individuals determine their own destiny, has been outsourced to Europe. In America today, you are likely to be born into wealth or born into poverty with a vanishing middle class and little opportunity for upward mobility. Of course,
