I will not stop working, in another capacity, to help my community

To The Daily Sun,

I returned (Friday) from Veterans Square where many neighbors and others from Laconia turned out to remember those who served in the military and who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of all.

Some of those present approached me to thank me for running for office and to say that they were sorry I lost the election for state House of Representative. My response to them, and to the readers of the paper, is that even though I lost, I will not stop working in another capacity to help where I feel my skills can be of benefit.

There is a lot to do in Laconia and we can all, and must all play our part to keep it a safe, good place to live, and a good place to work and raise families. We owe this to those veterans and heroes from Laconia who gave their lives in military service. It's what they fought for and wanted to live for and so let's all do our part in honoring their memory by investing time and effort to make this the city they believed in.

The weeping outrage of the pot-head brats is music to my ears

To The Daily Sun,

Well, the election is finally over. All the signs are disappearing, no more obnoxious TV adds, and best of all, Hillary Clinton becomes an afterthought in American history.

Wish I could say I told you so, but truth is I believed the mainstream media when they kept predicting a big Hillary win. Teach me, when has the lame stream media ever been straight with we peons who are just supposed to listen, believe and do what they say?

Hooray for we stubborn deplorables who are sick and tired of Washington elites and corrupt-o-crats polluting everything they can get their hands on and all the money and power they can horde. Trump's victory has lifted a great weight from my soul. I now have hope my children and grandchildren might have a future in the nation I grew up in. The crying, weeping, outrage of the pot-headed, spoiled brats is a joy to my ears. Poor babies just can't stand not getting what they want.

How will they manage to make it in the real world where no one will give them a "safe spot"? As for a revolution, I ask, with what? Am I gloating? Darn right!
