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".

Elaine & Harry Blinn

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.

Legislation should be fair & judicious for everyone, not 'elusive'

To The Daily Sun,

A lot has been written about our country's nationally directed "health care" program and one of the best descriptions I've read to date, on how it should work, was outlined in James Edgar's letter to The Sun on November 26. I urge everyone to back track and take a look at Edgar's letter. In an incurvate way, his words give credence to President Lincoln's vision that "a house divided against itself cannot stand". Yes, Edgar's right: separation and division as to who must abide by congressional law and who is exempt from it must come to a screeching halt. The goal in any legislation should always be what is fair and judicious for everyone!
Edgar is also right to suggest that unless our state's national representatives start pounding the table in opposition to this trend of "elusive legislation", they should be voted out of office. And should this ever come to pass, let's hope we end up with "common folk" and "common sense" representation as it was so many years ago.

Kennedy rolling in his grave watching Democratic self indulgence

To The Daily Sun,

A conservative remembers and honors the death of JFK 50 years ago.
In 1960, the nation was consumed with the election of John Kennedy, a first time Catholic to the presidency. My parents were Democrats and Kennedy fanatics. Dad had just been given a pair of beagle pups as a gift, he named the boy Jack and the girl Jackie. I am sure if I had been born that year my name would have been John Kennedy Boutin. Jack, Jacqueline, their young kids and the Kennedy clan dominated politics and the public psyche like none other at that moment in history. No one could escape the Kennedy mystique even if they wanted to. The period would become known as " Camelot". Today's will be recalled as "gridlockalot".

Kennedy was once asked early on why he was a Democrat, his dry answer" because I was born one". His short and stark answer revealed much about the man and his politics. He could have spouted some long, litany of beloved Democratic ideals and beliefs about government and public good. He didn't. Kennedy championed STRONG states rights (the exact opposite of Obama's state Medicaid cram-down) and he stood FIRMLY OPPOSED to a strong, centralized government. He was strong currency hawk not a printing freak like Obama. IF JFK were alive today, it is almost certain he would be a REPUBLICAN, NOT A DEMOCRAT. You laugh. Kennedy's policies and thinking of that time are far more aligned with that of conservative Republicans today, than modern Democrats. In fact it is Jack Kennedy we should credit with ENDORSING "supply side" economics. He recognized the importance of TAX CUTS to stimulate growth, rather than government spending sprees that produce nothing but economy-killing, mountains of debt like we experience today. In Kennedy's day, he shot down those who twisted his views and policies saying, and I quote DIRECTLY, "I would be very happy to tell them I am NOT a LIBERAL at all".

It was JFK, a DEMOCRAT who uttered the famous words, "It isn't what your country can do for you but rather what you can do for your country". Tell me the last time you heard ONE Democrat talking about anything except BIGGER, more EXPANSIVE and more GENEROUS GOVERNMENT. When was the last time Democrats asked their constituents to do anything to SACRIFICE for their country the way Kennedy did? Modern Democrats speak ONLY about TAKING MORE, from more people. Kennedy must be grave rolling watching this spectacle of Democratic self indulgence. ENTITLEMENTS are BANKRUPT going forward BY EVERY MEASURE in the TENS of TRILLIONS, threatening to destroy the financial security of our children and the country. With such certain disaster ahead Kennedy wouldn't be BACKING DOWN from reforming such programs. He would be "selling the reality" that pain today will be far less than fixes required latter, on others.

Kennedy's presidency, like that of Reagan and even Clinton were all about people and country being first. Kennedy, Regan and Clinton were not consumed with their legacies and stroking their egos. ABOVE ALL, their presidencies were not ABOUT THEM. It is that single characteristic that distinguishes these men from the presidency of Barack Obama. I say this with much sadness and even more regret.
