Saturday's March Against Monsanto will start in Concord at 11

To The Daily Sun,

Growing up in New Hampshire I remember seeing many bees and monarchs as I played outside. It was incredible to see them and be aware of their importance in our food system. The past few years I began to notice a sharp decline with them. Have you noticed that our bee and monarch population is declining? This is of great concern to myself. Many species of bees have been listed on the endangered species list. We need bees! Our food supply and environment is being compromised. We need monarchs, too.

Many of us are concerned about the use of glysophate, which has been determined by the World Health Organization as a probable carcinogen. If you are interested in learning about saving the bees and monarchs, promoting organic solutions, organic gardening ideas, raising awareness of the harm of pesticides and neonicotinoids, promoting food and seed sovereignty, protecting our biodiversity for our future seven generations to come, please come to the New Hampshire March Against Monsanto on Saturday, May 20, at 11 a.m. at the City Plaza in Concord, right next to the Farmer's Market.

We will have an educational rally and peaceful walk though downtown Concord. We start out the rally with the great band, Tyler Road. We will have a New Hampshire beekeeper, Amy Antonucci, state Rep. Jim McConnell, Marty Mitchener, Ph.D., ecologist, Laura Wolfner, M.A. Molecular Biologist & M.A. Archaeologist, and Bonnie Wright, from Non-Toxic NH, NH Right to Know GMO. We will have an organic seed swap table featuring high mowing organic seeds and an organic non-GMO food drive collecting non-perishable foods which we will donate to the Mckenna House.

This is part of a worldwide event where millions will march in solidarity. Please join this fun family event and bring your friends.

Estrich columns are sometimes interesting but always proaganda

To the Editor:
Susan Estrich is an excellent Democrat propagandist. As a lawyer, she knows how to shape her arguments, providing diversions and ignoring unhelpful history, fairness, and facts. Her April 29, 2017 column is no exception.
Estrich spends three-quarters of her column ridiculing President Trump and others for his/their audacity in trying to get sanctuary cities to comply with federal laws.
Wealthy and politically connected Democrats like Estrich expect illegal immigration to only benefit, not harm, them. Illegal aliens won't live in their neighborhoods; only in other people's neighborhoods. Illegal aliens won't take their jobs, only other peoples' jobs. Illegal alien children won't go to schools with their children; only the safety and education of other people's children will be jeopardized by illegal alien children.
The Democrats encouraging illegal immigration and allowing sanctuary cities don't expect to even know any victim of illegal alien actions: the 400-500 annual murder victims, or the hundreds of thousands of other crime and accident victims.
Other than these Democrats most Americans are concerned about the harm done by illegal aliens to their fellow Americans and want President Trump to act on his campaign promises to enforce our immigration laws.
Estrich ends her column talking about the importance of the "Rule of Law." She asserts "No American president in recent history has made the habit Donald Trump has of attacking the rule of law." This is a flagrant lie unless she equates criticizing judges with attacking the rule of law and unless she defines "recent" to mean since Jan. 20, 2017.
Estrich can't provide examples of President Trump attacking the rule of law because he hasn't done so; he has even complied with the outrageous judicial orders stopping his attempts to protect the American people.
However President Obama ignored/violated District Court orders related to the oil spill in the Caribbean and Obamacare. Those were attacks on the rule of law. Obama ignored/changed various actions and schedules specified by Obamacare, violating the rule of law. President Obama attacked the Supreme Court during a State of the Union address, a much more public and inappropriate criticism than Trump's. However, criticizing Judges isn't an attack on the rule of law; Judges can't be threatened, they have life tenure.
Like any good lawyer, Susan Estrich will advocate for or against any position, including the rule of law, based on how it supports her goal of helping Democrats and attacking Republicans. Her columns are sometimes interesting, often comical because of their hypocrisy and blatant one-sidedness; they are just Democrat propaganda.
