When trying to create a panic at least get your history right

To The Daily Sun,

On Thursday (letter writer) Michael (last name omitted to save embarrassment) tells us World War I started in 1905 between Russia and Japan over oil. Strange, when I was in school I was taught that the Russian/Japanese war of 1905 was over Port Arthur, a year-round ice free harbor into the Pacific the Russians had long wanted. The Japanese Navy crushed the Russians and Teddy Roosevelt brokered the peace treaty in Portsmouth, N.H., winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But hey, what do I know?

Then in 1912 another terrible war started in Europe. No, I don't think so. There was no war in Europe until 1914, or so the history books read. I think that was called World War I, yea pretty sure it was a world war. Sure was a bad bit of stuff, (wonder if Michael thinks that was about oil, too)?

Fast forward to U.S. invasion of Iraq twice. Twice? As I recall there was the Gulf War where two dozen countries kicked the Iraq army out of Kuwait after Iraq had invaded that country. It was a decade later that we invaded Iraq, because of oil Michael says. Really Mike, then how come we didn't take their darn oil?

"Beware the Bear," oil prices are falling or is it the sky? Russia today is not the powerful USSR we faced down in the second half of the 20th century, but Michael is running to hide under his bed apparently. I remember back in the 1950s chanting "better red then dead" in fear of the USSR. Michael reminds me of them.

Just a little advice Mike, when trying to create a panic at least get your history right.

Where can I sign up for the right-wing parrot daily newsletter?

To The Daily Sun,

I have to wonder when I read the right wing letters, where do they get their daily updates from?

A letter written Dec. 11 by Anne Rogers explained very nicely the benefits provided by Obamacare. All information past and present from the parrots have been doom and gloom. Ms. Rogers talks about the 10 million who can now afford health care. A article written today in the Union Leader on Page 3 reads Medicare payments will be cut to three New Hampshire hospitals. The three to lose are Catholic Medical Center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and Elliot Hospital. A short quote: "The Patient Protection ACA (Obamacare) includes a host of incentives for reducing what is known in the health care industry as hospital acquired conditions." Perhaps this will be discussed by the parrots.

Some one needs to inform Mr. Earle that the Benghazi affair is closed with no fault found with actions taken by White House. The IRS affair ended today with the same outcome. So much for phony scandals. The rest of his Dec. 20 letter is all crap he got from other parrots in the pet store.

The right-wing party has control of both New Hampshire (legislative) houses and fighting like children about who will be speaker of the House.The Washington right-wingers don't have a clue of what to do.

Mr. Meade's half-page column was nicely written I know full well what Ho stands for (Ho has been my initials forever). We have decided what we think of each other in the past. I have a theme song for your playbook full of parrots as follows: "I'm just a lonely boy, lonely and blue, all I want is someone to talk to." Ho, ho, ho.
