Hillary will be hired as spokesperson for Trump U. for $20M

To The Daily Sun,

The five best and worst things about a Donald Trump presidency.
The best :
1. The words "global warming," with its singular intent to expand government power, will be expunged from the English language.

2. Every trace of Barack Obama's presidency will be shredded like confetti within six months. Within 12 months people will say Barack who?

3. The U.S. Supreme court will move far more conservative than ever for a generation to come.

4. Obamacare will be euthanized, replaced with more competition, less government intervention, more freedom of choice and better cost/results outcomes.

5. Increased incentives to work will replace incentives not to, while increased economic opportunity replaces entitlement and politically manufactured, government dependence aimed only to influence voting results.

The worst:

1. Celebrity, Rosie O'Donnell, and news reporter Megyn Kelly will need to hire food tasters.

2. Walls of protectionism will diminish the stature, global reach and GDP of America. High-priced jobs only translate to high-priced products if not paid for with higher efficiency.

3. Trump's bullying personal style, manner of speech and methods of intimidation will become the operating standard for our young and impressionable to mimic.

4. All lawsuits against Trump University will be dropped. The college will be reopened. Hillary will be hired as its spokesperson (fee, twenty million dollars) with all tuitions paid for by special government grants misleadingly advertised as free education.

5. All Trump's former lovers are going to step forward claiming his groping was not consensual, prompting an endless string of lawsuits followed by impeachment proceedings while Americans stand like deer in the headlights one more time.

Thank you Laconia voters; I will be there to serve you

To The Daily Sun

On Tuesday I had the honor of being elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives for the fourth, non-consecutive, time. As a Democrat I'm sad that our efforts failed to produce better results, but as a citizen I'm proud of the fact that so many of our citizens turned out and cast their ballots.

I want to thank the 3,000-odd Laconians who made this opportunity available to me. I'll be there to serve you.

I'm hoping that legislators of all persuasions come together to make New Hampshire a safe and attractive place to live and work. There will be disagreements, but the beauty of the two-party system, which returns to Belknap County as a result of this election, is that disagreements can be laid out for all to see and resolved by thoughtful discourse.

I'll make every effort to keep all the people of Laconia informed of the impact of legislation and state government on them.

David Huot
