Rep. Garcia should be treated as respected & honored opponent

To The Daily Sun,

In the 2012 elections, Democrats attacked Republicans as anti-women. This is par for the course in most of our elections, though there is no truth to it.

Fast forward to today. N.H. State Rep. Marilinda Garcia (R) throws her hat in the ring to challenge U.S. Congresswoman Anne Kuster (D). Within minutes of her announcement, N.H .State Rep. Peter Sullivan (D) hits the "Tweet" circuit. He infers that by adding former N.H. Speaker of the House Bill O'Brien and Kim Kardashian equals Marilinda Garcia. In another tweet, he says that Marilinda is Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels.

Marilinda Garcia is a rising star in the Republican Party and the Latino community. So many of us are proud of her, and her constituents keep sending her back to Concord to represent them. She must be doing something right!

The Democrat Party, and Rep. Peter Sullivan, should issue an apology for these types of derogatory comments. Rather than attack her personally as an enemy, why don't you do the right thing — treat her as a respected and honored opponent!

Obama's agreement with Iran reeks of another Munich Accord

To The Daily Sun,

Writing this letter on Monday the 25th, I see and read reports that President Obama is holding negotiations with Iran trying to finalize an agreement that would allow Iran peaceful nuke development and stop nuke weapons development. Now I can applaud the thought but frankly he scares the heck out of me.
Apparently Mr. Obama considers the lessons of history do not apply where he is concerned. He seems to think his personal charm and power to persuade will win over a fanatical religious despot. The whole thing reeks of another Munich Accord.
For those not familiar with that historical event, that was when, in 1938, British Prime minister Neville Chamberland and French Premier Edouard Daladier went to Munich, Germany and signed away Czechoslovakia's existence and freedom without even a single Czech representative present. One year later WW2 began and 60+/- million humans died in that war.
My point? You can not trust despots to honor their words, promises or treaty's. Over and over this country has tried to make agreements with N. Korea, the PLO, Iraq, Iran. You name them the list goes on and on and on and always these despots cheat and finally break their words and treaties. This will be no different only this time it will mean Atomic war. Our people and cities will not be safe. Appeasement never works, never will.

Some of the contributors to these pages should do a little research

To The Daily Sun,

The headline "Obama's grade point average at Columbia was impressive 3.7" caught my attention. Some of the letters to this paper are literally unreal. I often wonder if these people actually attach their real names to these letters they write. Particularly the ones that peddle hearsay as fact. Of course L.J. Siden is a self-proven heavy Kool-Aid drinker but it is hard to believe there are people still walking around out there that still believe every last word this president says. A 3.7 gpa is very impressive indeed. What would be even more impressive is if Obama would allow this claim to be independently verified.

Fact: Barack Hussein Obama has never allowed any independent verification of his college transcripts. Period. All we have is his word. And we all know how good his word is don't we. Apparently the "folks" are beginning to awake from whatever coma they have been in for the last six years and realize this president for what the 47 percent of us who didn't vote for him already knew he is. A liar. Period. there have been repeated calls by conservatives and independents for him to release his college records, but he has thus far refused. Why? A person of reasonable intelligence could only conclude the obvious. He is hiding something. I would suspect that something would be a little thing called the truth, something I think supreme-ruler Obama knows very little about.

What is interesting about this is the media in this country has always had an obsession with presidents and presidential contender's college transcripts. If these people are not forthcoming with them then the media will dig them up and put them on public display. Am I the only one who remembers the media witch hunt for the Bush 43 transcripts? Then along comes Barack Hussein Obama and all of a sudden the media has zero interest in his college career. Why? Maybe in 100 years they will unlock the 'Obama files,' like JFK, after we are all long dead. Provided this country is still here in 100 years.

Some of the contributors to this paper would do well to do a little thing called research before writing to the paper and making themselves sound ignorant to those of us who pay attention and have a clue whats going on in the world around us. But they won't. There is a saying that says "you cant fix stupid". So you all just keep the Kool-Aid flowing and keep writing these crazy and ridiculous letters because even I have to admit they are far more entertaining than any of the garbage I have seen on a TV or movie screen in the last 20 years.

We would like to thank woman who found our beloved 'Honey'

To The Daily Sun,

We are trying to find the woman who stopped on Route 11, in Gilford, on Saturday, at 2:30 p.m. to help a lost dog. Our beloved golden retriever, "Honey", escaped from her fenced in yard and headed up Route 11.

Because she is an animal lover we have our "Honey" home and safe. She called our phone number on the dog collar and we picked "Honey" up. She was in a white SUV between Belknap Point Motel and Patrick's.

We did not get a chance to thank her for her thoughtfulness and wanted her to know how much we sincerely appreciate her actions . Please contact us so we can thank you in person. The outcome would have been a lot different if you did not stop that day. We are forever grateful that you were there for our "Honey".

How many women are going to rise up and demand an apology?

To The Daily Sun,

Imagine this if you will. I'm a woman and you're a man. We're supposed to be working together to make New Hampshire a better place. We're supposed to co-operate. We may disagree from time to time, but that's how it goes in the real world.

But one day you become green with envy. You let your true feelings flow through your fingertips out to the whole world on Twitter by posting this about me: "She's Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels, a lightweight and O'Brien clone."

What kind of man would do that? If you were married to this man, would you be happy with him? How many nights would you make him sleep on the couch? If you were this man's daughter, would you be proud of your daddy? Would you want him to walk you down the aisle arm in arm surrounded by other women? If you were this man's pastor, would you mention him in a sermon holding him up as a great moral example others should follow?

Democratic State Rep. Peter Sullivan said those disparaging comments about Republican State Rep. Marilinda Garcia just after she announced she's running for U.S. Congress. The best thing you can say about Peter Sullivan is he's a cad.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick of politicians who have no class and are sexist. I'm not a trained psychologist, but Rep. Sullivan's tweet drips of professional envy.

How many women out there are going to rise up and demand an apology from Rep. Sullivan? Or don't you care? Are you going to let him get away with this? If you remain quiet, then don't get upset when men treat you like a throw rug and walk all over you.

I'll make it easy for you to chew Peter out. I'd suggest you give Peter a call and give him a piece of your mind, but he's cancelled the service on his 603-647-5453 phone number. My guess is lots of upset women have already called. You may just want to email him: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
