So what's wrong with keeping out this flood of drug 'mules'

To The Daily Sun,

Well Hillary Clinton (liar, and incompetent) once again goes to the big lie to smear Donald Trump, calling him a racist, again.

Want to talk about racists? Good. Let's review the history of racism in the Democratic party a little bit. The first Democratic President Andrew Jackson was the founder of the party. His most infamous racist act was to drive the peaceful Cherokee people off their lands out to Oklahoma. The Cherokee called this the "trail of tears" for it's devastating effect on them. Why, so white men could have their lands.

Then there was the Civil War, started by Southern Democrats, (slave holders) in order to preserve their right to have black slaves. After they lost the war it was a Confederate Cavalry officer, Nathan Bedford Forest, who founded the Klu Klux Klan. Another Democrat racist and delegate to the 1868 Democratic convention in New Your City.

And what party created the Jim Crow laws, the segregation laws in the South. That's right the Democrats. It was also the Democrats that fought against the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. It was Democratic Governor George Wallace who stood on the school steps barring entry to black students after the Supreme Court ordered the integration of the schools.

And what is Hillary's basis for the claim? Trump wants to stop illegal aliens from flooding into this country. Most are Hispanic, true, but with this flood comes mostly the very poor, unskilled who are going to be put on public assistance of one form or another.

Also coming with these poor people are drug gang members and their human "mules" as well as criminals like rapists. There is also the element that still regards the southwestern states as part of Mexico and call for a "reconquest" of that territory. Does anyone expect these people to integrate into our culture, I don't?

So what's wrong with keeping out this flood? They add nothing to the welfare of the American people or nation. Again, I say Hillary Clinton — who has a long, long, long list of lies and deceit for a record — is at it again. Sadly, unthinking or those ignorant of history are still supporting her and Democrats content to be hoodwinked and bamboozled.

Now just a reminder to readers, not one of those critical thinking, progressive liberals has even tried to answer my question of "what does liberalism and Islam share as values?" The only answer can be nothing. I dare them to prove me wrong.

Sunday is Blue Star Mothers' Day in State of New Hampshire

To The Daily Sun,

This Sunday, May 15, the governor shall issue a proclamation calling for a proper observance of the first Sunday after Mother's Day, which shall be known as New Hampshire Blue Star Mother's Day recognizing and honoring all mothers who now have, or have had, children honorably serving in the United States armed forces.

Since World War I mothers have hung "Blue Star Flags" in their windows while their children served in the armed forces, especially during conflicts or wars. To be a Blue Mother (or Father) is an honor only your child can give to you. The Blue Star stands for hope and pride.

Becoming a military parent continues the life long journey ... of hope and pride. As when your child was born, you were filled with that hope and pride as well as excitement, anxiety, fear and great joy. As you step into the walk of being a military parent that journey continues and once again life changes. You find yourself noticing even more the patriotic symbols all around you, flying your United States flag with a different kind of pride. Thus "Supporting Our Troops" in a way you have probably never before.

Life changes, as your child will hold him or herself to a higher standard, you too will find it changes your life, forever supporting your child in a different way with even more hope and pride for serving our country to keep our land free.

May you and your child be blessed while this journey of life unfolds! Remember: "To be a Blue Star Mother or Father is an honor only your child can give to you!"
