We had 8 wonderful years of an intelligent president, now this

To The Daily Sun,

The Trump Administration’s ties to Russia become more obvious — and insidious — with each passing day. When this type of collusion happens in other countries, those on the right are furious. One has to wonder — why ARE those on the right continuing to aid and abet the Trump Administration? Where is their righteous anger now? It’s sad to say, but it seems that they have retreated to their collective "bunkers" hoping against hope that they too will not be singled out as not just supporters of this very dysfunctional family, but also colluders and conspirers!

Chris Wallace, Fox News commentator said, “This really shouldn’t be a matter of liberal vs. conservative, pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump. If you’re a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned.”

With each passing day we are credible witness to the fact that Russia does not want what’s best for this country. The constant lies, cover-ups and amending of security forms of contact information with foreign powers is very troubling. President Trump, his cabinet, his administration and almost all of the GOP/Tea Party members of Congress are actively working against the interests of America.

We had eight wonderful years of an intelligent president willing to confront all situations, assess these situations, consult his cabinet and administration, come to a levelheaded conclusion, and then in turn inform Americans and the world at large on how he was going to address these issues. On almost all occasions of consequence he would take his concerns to Congress and in turn ask for their input and suggestions.

Now we have in President Trump a pathetic scenario where so many are still clinging to an illusion that could very well kill or harm millions of innocent people. We have the makings of a very volatile and dangerous mix. Trump’s tweets and comments continue to add more incendiary fuel to an already simmering blaze that’s ready to reignite at a moment’s notice. Trump continues to ignore or denigrate the seventeen intel agencies (and yes there are indeed seventeen) who ALL concur that Russia did in point of fact hack into our Presidential election. In the case of the Russia investigation, there is no evidence of disagreement among members of the intelligence community.

Recently Neil Cavuto, the conservative commentator is quoted as saying, “Mr. President, it’s not the "fake news media" that’s your problem. It’s not just your tweeting — it’s your scapegoating. It’s your refusal to see that sometimes you’re the one who feeding your own beast — and acting beastly with your own guys.”

Will this country be able to recover? It is incumbent on us to ask members of Congress this very important question: What did the president know and when did he know it?

Past 4th of July parades have been disappointing but not this year

To The Daily Sun,

Laconia owes a thank you note to Heidi Follansbee for the wonderful 4th of July parade. Wasn't it wonderful? It was led off by representatives of our Police Department in their crisp uniforms. We had marching bands from so many different local groups. It was marvelous. I loved the dancing calf. Did you all see the tiny Yorkie with his sparkly red white and blue collar? The rock band was great! Oh and thank you to Larry Frates and his group.

In past years the parade on the fourth was disappointing but this was just fine. Maybe next year we will have boy scouts and girl scouts and bicycles decorated with crepe paper. Oh, and the group on stilts.

Oh, I'm getting greedy. I do love a parade. Thank you so much Heidi. It was wonderful.
