Are the Dems desperate?

Editorials

If you are in need of more evidence as to why so many Americans are cynical about politics in general and Washington in particular (and isn’t current evidence sufficient?), you need look no further than the etymological shift taken by Democrats during the House impeachment hearings. As The ...

Trump’s firing offensive

Editorials

WASHINGTON – As former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was testifying Friday at the congressional impeachment hearings, the tyrannical 2-year-old occupying the Oval Office busied himself on Twitter trying to smear her. Presumably, there are no grown-ups left to mind him. There ...

Safeguard the public health

Editorials

Federal lawmakers should follow the lead of Washington and at least 17 other states in raising the age of legal sale for vapor and tobacco products to age 21. Doing so will make it more difficult for high school students to access these potentially harmful products, while helping keep them ...

New book raises concerns

Editorials

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is raising eyebrows with a new book that provides her take on time in President Donald Trump’s administration. The volume, “With All Due Respect,” raises troubling questions about the political establishment. Haley left her post ...

A path to healing for all

Editorials

I never imagined that in 2019 in the United States of America, a 14-year-old child would have to worry about health insurance. Yet with the way things are now, my husband and I recently found ourselves having to reassure our son that he would always get the care he needs. But given the state ...

Democrats are the ‘party of the people’

Editorials

Want a skilled workforce and an education policy that looks after all Americans? Don’t forgive all student debt: focus on “Training for a Lifetime” for the 65% of Americans who don’t have a college degree. We have a serious skills gap in this country. Too many employers say they ...

Trump should issue order

Editorials

Heroism virtually unimaginable for most of us was commonplace during World War II. Four hundred seventy-two men and women performed deeds so courageous and selfless that they were honored with the Medal of Honor. Just two of those representatives of the Greatest Generation remain among us ...

What you don’t see at the polls

Letters

With the close of the 2019 municipal elections I ended my term as Ward 3 Selectman. In Nashua, Selectmen work the polls and, as such, we learn a lot about the behind-the-scene election process to which voters are not exposed. Once the polls close and the machine tape is printed, workers ...

A feeble defense

Letters

The Republican defense of Donald Trump was “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing!” They demand the whistle blower testify, because he might be a “never-Trumper” and he “heard it second-hand.” So what! Everything he said has been corroborated by no less a personage than Mick ...

It’s a lie

Letters

The impeachment investigation is under way and public now, to my great relief. Adults are in sight again. U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff will ever be a hero in my book. As I understand it now, incredible pressure was put on Ukraine’s new president. He must give in order to get. Weaponry to defend ...

Make the change

Letters

Numerous recent news reports claim that there are more health problems and accidents during the time that we are adjusting to changing our clocks twice a year. I used my Facebook page to ask if anyone liked the idea of having to change the clocks. Not one person said they liked it. Most said ...

Democrats and The Inquisition

Local Commentary

Have we reverted back to the Middle Ages? Democrats in Congress would have us believe so. The Spanish Inquisition (1478 to the early 1800s) was established to identify and purify heretics (definition: someone whose ideas go against the norm), and bring them to justice. In their zealousness of ...

Giving back and getting involved

Local Commentary

Every so often I feel compelled to throw out a few ideas on how you might want to get involved, and this is especially true during the holiday season. So, this month I’m going to highlight a few things you might not know about, which can make a big difference. These include the Santa Fund, ...

Is America ready for President Pete? Putting goodness first

Local Commentary

According to the polls, only a few candidates in the still-sprawling Democratic presidential field have a strong shot at becoming the party’s nominee. To everyone’s surprise, one of them is a 30-something mayor with a funny name you never heard of until this year. With less than three ...

Leadership means putting vets first

Editorials

Let me make it clear. This Republican and military veteran supports re-electing Sen. Jeanne Shaheen to continue representing New Hampshire in Washington, D.C. I have never understood how other elected leaders could let their politics get in the way of improving the lives of our veterans. ...

Problems need addressed

Editorials

One cannot blame the Turks for not wanting to be the world’s jailers for some of the most dangerous people on the planet. When Turkish forces invaded northern Syria to push back Kurdish separatists, they captured some facilities in which the Kurds were holding Islamic State terrorist ...

Don’t blame Latin

Editorials

If the impeachment effort isn’t taking the nation by storm, the Democrats have an answer – blame it on Latin. The use of a Latin term, quid pro quo, is now thought to be a damper on the impeachment cause because it sounds complex and technical. Latin is one of the great legacies of ...

Young people ignorant of history

Editorials

A recent survey conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by YouGov, a research and data firm, found that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three millennials saw communism as “favorable.” Let examine this tragic vision in light of the Fraser ...

Protect them

Editorials

Use of tobacco in all forms can be hazardous to one’s health. That is a fact, not open to dispute. Yet cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco and smokeless tobacco are legal for sale in all 50 states, with some restrictions. That is a puzzle to many who wonder why federal laws intended to ...
