E-mail indicates Gruber was near heart of Obamacare strategy

To The Daily Sun,

In spite of my better judgment, I sometimes can't help checking in on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." Every once in a while they accidentally spill the beans and some glimmer of truth and objectivity slips out.

Recently Mark Halperin, Bloomberg Politics managing editor, appeared on the show. During the discussion the subject of how much input Prof. Jonathan Gruber (the MIT economist) had in creating Obamacare was brought up. The White House, Nancy Pelosi, Ed Reed, etc. maintained it was very little. Nancy even asked "who was he?" Turns out from newly discovered e-mails it was no little involvement, according to Halperin. "The Republicans were right," Halperin stated referring to his Republican sources on the issue at the time.

Once again we have proof of liberal lies right out of their own mouths. Guess they have just not learned the fact about e-mails, they live longer the radio active isotopes and are nearly as deadly.

During the show, only one other member of the panel, Mika Brzezinski remarked, "Certainly appears that officials did not tell the truth." Appears to me an understatement and I noted that no other person on the set said or acknowledged the fact that you can always depend on this administration to flat out lie to the American people's faces.

Today President Obama is meeting with families of Americans being held hostage overseas by one bunch or another. Boy, would I like to be a fly on the wall for that one. I wonder how he will explain he has no plan or even an idea what to do. Watch for the no news, no intelligent comments to come. Well, except for perhaps a couple families who pay a ransom or the beheadings of some hostages.

It may be interesting to note Hillary Clinton's comments on the issue a while back. "People die in America everyday," she stated. Comforting isn't it to know she cares so very deeply?

What I would consider an appropriate presidential policy to be would have our president announce the following: If someone takes an American citizen hostage we will be coming for you. That will mean scorched earth, boots on the ground, your friends will die, your family will die and you will die. Then prove it, and let all the liberal bleeding hearts tear their hair out. Hostage taking will fall out of fashion faster then bell bottom pants.

Laconia Area Bicycle Exchange needs a bigger space; know of one?

To The Daily Sun,

I am a member of the Advisory Board of the Laconia Area Bicycle Exchange and have been impressed by the number of bicycles that have been given out since its inception.

The Bicycle Exchange provides refurbished used bicycles at little or no cost to people who need an affordable means of transportation or who do not have a driver's license. Most people obtaining these bicycles are referred by a community service organization. Often the recipients need a way to get to work. Last year, we helped more than 100 people, and so far this year more than 40.

Last year the Exchange was located in a 20-foot by 20-foot garage on 229 Messer St. The building was sold in October so the Exchange moved to its current location at 343 Court St., a garage space 9 feet by 12 feet with storage.

Currently, the Exchange has about 120 bikes in storage but very limited space in which to work on them. Do you know of or have a space near the center of Laconia to rent or donate to us? The Exchange is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Please contact John P. Rogers at 603-630-7571.
