It’s about responsible spending

Throughout the budget process this year, there has been one topic covered more than practically anything else – education funding. Why? Apparently Gov. Chris Sununu is against it, according to educators and Democrats. Yes, Sununu vetoed a budget containing more funding for education. Did he ...

Politicians care only about themselves

Whenever I read, watch or listen to a story about health care, I think back to the days of TV westerns, the cowboy and Indian types, where the Indian chief says, “White man speak with forked tongue.” Taking the first steps to fixing our health care system is impossible, but not difficult. ...

An open letter

The rise in hate and gun violence is Donald Trump’s fault! Donald Trump uses racist and sexist language that makes extremists act out their neo-Nazi and white nationalist fantasies!

Ban assault guns

Guns are the preferred instrument of mass killers. My suggested solution to reduce mass killings is to make illegal all high-capacity magazine guns and tighten registration of most guns. These types of weapons serve no useful purpose to society. Opponents of this concept claim mass killings ...

Active shooters and what to do

There will be a lot of words and emotions after the last 14 days, especially last weekend. I’d like to talk about facts. Gun laws will not stop the killings. Here is why. There already are laws against killing someone, it’s called murder. And a mass killing is premeditated murder. ...

Booker understands

This past weekend, Americans witnessed two horrifying shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Yet again, we saw another senseless act of gun violence kill mothers, fathers, neighbors and friends in public spaces – places we are supposed to feel safe. The frightening reality is that a ...

Disappointing

I am appalled after reading two articles this week that appeared in the paper. To say that I’m angry at the NRA and Gov, Chris Sununu is putting it mildly. To read that the CEO of the NRA has a seven-figure salary, and feels that the NRA should buy him a $6 million mansion, among other ...

Cal Thomas is wrong

Cal Thomas, in his recent editorial, “Smelling Rats in Baltimore,” thinks the word racist is overused, just a knee-jerk, default position by Democrats to distract from real problems, (as if racism is not a problem in the U.S. in 2019). He said elected officials, especially Democrats, ...

Still providing quality entertainment

In a recent article announcing the opening of Zingers, in the Colonel Shephard House in Milford, your readers may have been given the impression that Nelson’s Candy and Music venue in Wilton has been closed. Nothing could be further from the truth. We continue to offer a unique listening ...

Put the country first

Time has come for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country. Robert S. Mueller has and all Americans who believe in the Constitution of this great country need to as well. I have been listening to an audible version of the Mueller Report. Mueller’s testimony last week was ...

Bélanger announces resignation

I have served all the residents of Hollis to the best of my ability for nine years as your state representative in Concord. Not only have I represented you at the state level, but also as a member of the Hillsborough County delegation and Executive Committee. I appreciate your support, ...

Clear and present danger

Robert Mueller’s sworn testimony before Congress made clear, once again, that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the United States of America. While Mr. Mueller testified that Russia engaged in a “sweeping and systematic” attack on the 2016 election, Trump refuses to even ...

Health care system in shambles

I retired and bought the best health insurance you can buy in New Hampshire. They said the price was fixed until we reach Medicare age. The company was bought out, our health insurance cost doubled. Not a 20% increase, it doubled when we were guaranteed, under Obamacare rules, no price ...

The Mueller Report

As I watched Mr. (Robert) Mueller testify, I realized that he didn’t write the report, which is OK. Managers usually will have staff gather info and write reports. It’s done all the time. Especially when you have an unlimited budget and no deadlines. But you and I and most managers will ...

Settled silence

If man-made climate change is indeed the most urgent threat facing humanity, then experts should embrace the opportunity to make that case and convince non-believers. Unfortunately, the most strident advocates for climate-change remediation seem uninterested in coming to the table. Not ...

Put food on the table

In the Democratic Presidential Debate Sen. Harris gave a statement that” people want to know how we are going to put food on the table.” People want to hear the facts because the facts lead to truth. What Senator Harris will not tell you is the fact that African Americas enjoy the lowest ...

Full of baloney

Since I am an easy-to-get along with liberal/progressive Democrat who has never felt intimidated by or susceptible to by bullying by any conservative-Republicans and who sincerely and genuinely respectfully disagrees with conservatives who sincerely believe in political conservatism and who are ...

Continued progress

I’d like to thank Gov. Chris Sununu for signing three important mental health bills into law late last week: House Bill 239, Senate Bill 80, and Senate Bill 177. House Bill 239 makes it easier for counselors seeking to get certified to undergo the necessary processes. SB 80 further deals with ...

Tim Ryan for president

In the race for the Democratic nomination for President, I encourage New Hampshire Democrats to take a good look at Ohioan, Tim Ryan. Tim represents a congressional district in Ohio that was devastated by NAFTA. He has intervened many times on behalf of his constituents to help them through ...

Full support

Despite claims that Gov. Chris Sununu’s recent decision to veto HB365, more commonly known as the net-metering bill, is a step backwards, clear-minded New Hampshire residents should fully support the governor’s veto. I’m glad that Gov. Sununu didn’t give into corporate pressures on ...
