I can't believe the Humane Society would fire Mary DiMaria

To The Daily Sun,
When I heard that the N.H. Humane Society had fired Mary DiMaria, I was aghast — I just couldn't believe it! I am a senior citizen, and I had always believed that Humane Societies WERE humane, and that being kind and humane was what they always were!! I have known Mary for years and years — she was a fellow "animal lover", and I knew when she worked at the Humane Society in Laconia, the organization could not be in better hands. Mary and my family often interacted, especially with trading off pet care, and helping each other out. She has actually fostered over 250 kittens and cats! Loving care of the animals in her care is the topmost priority. That she tried, in good faith, to do that at the Humane Society, it got her actually fired, which I thought was very cruel, and definitely inhumane! The Humane Society actually fired her for her support of their own mission! I still find it hard to believe. The NHHS was inhumane to a human being!
I will still support other Humane Societies, but not the one in Laconia.

How can you liberals & Democrats do this to the children?

To The Daily Sun,

There are those days when the coverage of the beginning of World War III is just too overwhelming. No U.S. Constitution, no rule of law, executive orders. We are at war. No, we are not at war. We need boots on the ground. No, boots on the ground. No, we do not have a secure border. Yes, amnesty for 5 million lawbreakers. $500 million here, $500 million there. No problem, it is for a good cause.

How did this happen? Yesterday this: "Obama Forcing New Gun Buyers to Declare Their Race and Ethnicity."

Some of the writers who lean left, and candidates who are avoiding paying for advertising, can be insulting to those who differ. Do those of the liberal persuasion ever see what Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder have done to our country in the past six years? In New Hampshire we have two members of Congress, and one member in the U.S. Senate, all three (of whom) support Obama in his efforts to destroy our country. I have spoken out against Republicans who have lost their way for years. Scott Brown will get my vote. It is a vote against Jeanne Shaheen.

My country means that much to me that I will vote for Republicans who will end up taking a seat in Washington to stop Obama. This is for yours and my grandchildren. How can you liberals and Democrats do this to the children?

Let's support Andrew Hosmer & thank him for his commitment

To The Daily Sun,

As a 75-year New Hampshire resident and long-standing registered Republican, I would like to acknowledge the hard work state Sen. Andrew Hosmer has done for the citizens of District 7.

Andrew's moderate, sensible pragmatic approach to legislating has been a refreshing contrast to the ideological, narrow-minded view of extremists that are trying to gain a foothold on our party and state. Sen. Hosmer truly is committed to working with both Republicans and Democrats to craft effective legislation that benefits the people he represents.

It's never been more important to support and thank Sen. Hosmer for his commitment to New Hampshire. I hope my friends and colleagues will support him during this crucial midterm election.

Shaheen has no desire to hear your opinions or listen to your input

To The Daily Sun,

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen prefers to hide from those who don't agree with her. If you're an average Granite Stater who, unlike her, doesn't agree with President Obama 99 percent of the time, then she has no desire to hear your opinions or listen to your input.

Recently, Sen. Shaheen took her hiding to a new level at an endorsement ceremony by some union workers. At the event, one of her constituents was waiting to ask the senator why she refuses to hold town halls. However, as seen on a video, which can easily be found online, one of her union supporters aggressively approached the individual before he could even ask her. He got in the young man's face, yelled at him, and even tried to take a video camera out of his hands. What baffled me was that neither Jeanne Shaheen nor a single member of her staff tried to stop the aggressive union supporter despite being only feet away.

It's bad enough that Shaheen refuses to meet with those who disagree with her, but it's worse when she doesn't have the courage to even stop an aggressive supporter from intimidating a fellow Granite Stater. Shame on Shaheen. New Hampshire deserves better.

Legal or not, the killing of an unborn child is still murder

To The Daily Sun,

Though the law of the land says that abortion is legal, that doesn't make it right. Killing an unborn child is still murder.

When a woman becomes pregnant, life begins in her womb and progresses through normal and understandable stages. To stop the process, that is to abort, is a crime against nature, religion and humanity.

Humans are the only creatures that choose to abort their young. So please choose life for your baby, let the child live.
Life is precious.
