Amateur radio is always ready and works when all else fails

To The Daily Sun,

In just under two weeks we have a fantastic event happening at the N.H. Motor Speedway, Field day will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26. The event begins at 2 p.m. on Saturday, the 25, and runs until 2 p.m. on Sunday.

It's a huge training event where highly skilled amateur radio operators all across New Hampshire and the USA do an outdoor exercise to test to make sure they can operate in the event of a national emergency or disaster. Amateur radio is always ready and works when all else fails.

The event is open to the public, elected officials, police, fire and emergency services are encourage to attend and get an idea how things will work in an emergency, we will have info on amateur radio as well as a GOTA (get on the air) station for those interested.

This is a great event and a way for everyone to see how amateur radio benefits our society on a daily basis. Don't take my word for it, come on out and see for yourself.

Possession of Islamic jihad material must be made illegal

To The Daily Sun,

Sunday, June 12, 2016, this country was attacked in Orlando, Florida, by a vicious militant member of a murderous ideology, masquerading as a legitimate participant of a so-called world religion, murdering at least 50 innocent people, and injuring at least 53 more.

This kind of murderous event keeps happening here and around the world because of at least three terminal "cultural cancers" that have infected Western society:

— The first is the cancer of "political correctness," which once again prevented people close to him from saying anything to authorities about things they witnessed that could have prevented this massacre.

— The second is the cancer of "multiculturalism," which has brain-washed many in our society into thinking that we should allow everybody and anybody, from all over the world, to come here, no questions asked, even if their overt intent is to completely change the American way of life!

— The third is that, if only one person in that night club had been legally armed with a concealed weapon, the total number of victims would have much lower.

Also, there is another huge concept that must be identified and changed. A couple of examples to illustrate:

(1) During the 1930s, it was illegal for Americans to have in their possession any material that supported Nazism, that had become prevalent in Europe, like a cancer.

(2) Today, it is illegal for anyone to have in their possession, any form of child pornography, even in the privacy of their own homes.

Congress must immediately pass laws that make it illegal to possess any Islamic jihadi material in this country, in any form, either by Muslim immigrants, or Americans who have become radicalized.

The leftist media is no doubt going to try to make this huge story, not about radical Islamist terrorism, but about either gun control and the "danger" of so many guns in the world, or about the civil rights of homosexuals, and how this massacre was the result of this gunman being "homophobic." But this attack must not be about guns or homosexuals. It must be about the real cause: radical Islam.
