Time for change

With the latest decision on fox and fisher season and bag limits, The New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission once again has demonstrated its total disregard for its statutory responsibilities and lack of understanding of wildlife management and ecosystem dynamics. The Legislature [RSA ...

Immigration

Linda Chavez writes Trumps’ executive order doesn’t solve the immigration problem. She brings up the fact that undocumented immigrants come here to work at jobs Americans largely shun. This is true. There are a lot of unskilled labor jobs Americans just won’t do. Ms. Chavez also writes ...

Fake

Webster’s Dictionary defines “fake” as “not true, real or genuine.” Roget’s Thesaurus synonyms, among others, are “phony, pseudo and pretend.” Due to the Electoral College and Russian bots, we have a fake president. Due to gerrymandering, we have a fake Congress. Due to House ...

The Swamp

I read your editorial “Drain the Swamp” with astonishment and dismay! Don’t count on rational and educated American citizens in Nashua as supporters of Trump’s politics and off the track ideas. In fact, he has “filled the swamp” with his appointments to cabinet posts that I hold ...

Least admired

Our president continues to bellyache that TV stations are biased, newspapers are biased, colleges are biased, the courts are biased. The fact is, intelligent people ARE biased. How could they think highly of someone that wants to sell our national parks so he can buy more guns and bombs. He is ...

Not dregs of society

I would like to formally reply to Katherine Prudhomme O’Brien’s letter posted on June 17 in regards to Nashua Pride. I personally started attending the shows just a little over three years ago now. I can assure you I had no idea what to expect. I went to support someone that is a very ...

Diabolical disorientation

Although saddened by the recent passing of the transgender therapy ban, and the bathroom bill, I can honestly say I am not surprised. Sadly, Americans, as well as many Catholics are blind to the truth, preferring to believe there is no hard “truth;” there is “your truth, my truth, ...

The border wall

I, and many other Americans, believe that the only reason the left opposes Trump’s wall is because it’s a Trump thing. Let’s take a leaf from our homegrown New Hampshire poet, Robert Frost – “Good fences make good neighbors.”

Ashamed

No matter what your views on immigration are, separation of children from their parents should be horrifying to everyone. Who is verifying these children are: 1. Fed adequately; 2. Receiving necessary medical care; 3. Have proper hygiene facilities; 4. Are safe from abuse by either the adult ...

Not ‘family friendly?’

I’m concerned about the performance being planned for June 30 hosted by a drag performer named Monique Toosoon and featuring other drag performers such as one named Mia E Z’Lay. I called the mayor’s office to express my concern that Ms. Toosoon is so overtly sexual that she posted a ...

Flag etiquette

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of patriotic pride. The U.S flag can be seen flying everywhere to indicate a symbol of unity, to remember the men serving in our military and remember those who have died for our country. Many individuals asking questions about proper flag etiquette ...

Original sin

After the release of the FBI IG Report, I believe no one is wise enough to understand what really happened with Hillary’ Clinton’s entire private email account, the exact timelines of the behavior of everyone involved and all those who are accountable. Many have been interviewed, but no one ...

So gullible

Alex Jones, the host of Info Wars, insists that the 6 year olds killed in the Newtown massacre were actors. He has millions of followers. They include Donald Trump and Roseanne Barr. Donald Trump, who built his political reputation by lying that Barak Obama was not a U.S. citizen, has used ...

A big thank you

This last session of the New Hampshire Legislature, the 23 members of the Ways and Means Committee voted against citizens. They voted to kill House Bill 1673, a bill to reduce the 12 and 18 percent interest rates charged by towns and cities on delinquent property taxes, something our ...

Sununu was wrong

By caving in to gender ideologists and signing a law that forces New Hampshire residents to pretend that men are women if they say so, Chris Sununu has demonstrated he lacks the courage and principle to serve as governor. His lack of leadership is further evidenced by his reluctance to sign a ...

Try again

Signs flashing “Click It Or Ticket” and “Seat Belts Save Lives.” The deer that ran in front of our car on a South Carolina road. All reminders about wearing seat belts as we enjoyed a drive down the east coast. They left me wondering if New Hampshire has ever updated state seat belt ...

Voter rights

It seems to be a sad state of affairs that a college student who is supposedly preparing himself to deal with the trials and tribulations of adulthood cannot take the time to obtain an absentee ballot. It’s such a simple process that I would be willing to bet that even a college student could ...

To the opioid addict

Four to five people are dying from opioid overdoses every day in Massachusetts, which is completely unnecessary, as opioid overdose is totally and completely preventable. The logic is incontrovertible: If you don’t do the drugs, they won’t kill you! If you want to recover from opioid ...

Taxpayer waste

You’ve heard of Tom Price resigning from HHS for luxury travel? Well, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is wasting our taxpayer dollars, too. In fact, Pruitt is facing three separate investigations for misusing taxpayer money and illegally lobbying, including spending ...

Recycling via China

In the last month, my recycling trash has been dumped in the street. I called the city of Nashua, Waste Management Department, to ask why my trash was dumped in the street. The clerk asked if I had bagged my trash in plastic bags, to which I replied, yes I had. The clerk then went on to explain ...
