To The Daily Sun,
I am writing in response to letter written Dec. 19 in The Daily Sun by Mr. Jon Hoyt of Plymouth. I was glad to see the names listed as "conservative clown car riders", or whom I call Rush Limbaugh Wannabees.
Mr. Hoyt has identified the fact that writers of letters to editor as not always written by name posted. I wrote my first letter to editor on April 28, 2011, with facts I knew to be true of such things going on but it was not printed. I was told at the time it was too personal. Mr. Hoyt's letter tells the story fine. I will be watching to see who responds.
I do feel that a fair question to ask Messrs. Meade, Ewing, Boutin, Earle, Wiles, who pays for their insurance? Is it by any chance government subsidies and should it be canceled? These same writers feel they can write letters of hate and discontent and don't have to answer to any comments as they can say anything they want to under free speech and First Amendment.
It was good to see the picture in Daily Sun on Dec. 20 and getting to see who writes these letters. It is true that that a picture is worth a thousand words. The first thing that came to my mind was a group of parrots in a pet shop saying "Obamacare," "IRS," "Benghazi," "Close the border," "Jobs for middle class," etc., etc., etc., as the list goes on.
I have read and been told lately that folks get smarter as they get older. The Union Leader had a article in Sunday's paper, Dec. 21 at bottom of Page F1 titled "Can't find your car? Blame your over-saturated brain." A short quote, "There's a down side, however. Scientists explained that the older brain takes in everything, but unlike the younger brain, has an unfortunate habit of replacing important existing information with something trivial."
I am a firm believer that the older a person gets, loss of friends, family members, etc., they get lonely, so draw attention to themselves in many ways, in this case, letters to the editor saying the same thing over and over again. Sad.
I always enjoy reading Tea Party Tricks by Mr. James Veverka. All I could think of is how anyone could eat anything and keep it down sitting at that table. To be continued.

To The Daily Sun,
Do the "Black Lives Matter" protest leaders and supporters actually care about saving or improving black lives or are they just pretending? Do they promote obeying the law and complying with police orders? Do they try to stop the thousands of annual black on black murders? Do they help blacks to escape poverty? No.
All lives, including black lives, matter to TEA Partiers because we know that policies that hurt some Americans can be redirected at others, and right now we are hated by Washington leaders and special interests everywhere. We work for things that enable all Americans to be free, safe, and successful; things like school choice, stable families, increasing economic freedom to create good jobs, opportunities, and wealth, the rule of law applied equally to all, and the limited government defined by the U.S. Constitution which exists to protect the rights of the American people.
Where do the "Black Lives Matter" protest leaders, President Obama, most "progressive" politicians, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, etc. stand on issues that would make blacks (and all Americans) safer, freer, and more successful?
They fight school choice, preferring to lock students in failing and dangerous schools.
They oppose reforming today's welfare programs that lock people in poverty by penalizing marriage and efforts to escape welfare.
They support lenient law enforcement which creates victims and prevents the accumulation of the wealth needed to escape poverty.
They support open borders, allowing illegal aliens to flood the labor market occupied by the least skilled Americans, exacerbating their difficulties in escaping poverty.
They deceive people to gain power. Minimum-wage laws depress black employment, hindering many young blacks searching for a first job to begin their path to success. Wealth distribution buys votes but it doesn't encourage success. After six years of President Obama's wealth distribution and blaming the rich, the rich are doing very well while most Americans are poorer.
Booker T. Washington said, "There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievance, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well." This describes the "black lives matter" leaders and supporters.
The only group truly working for every American, rather than some special interest(s), is the TEA Party; that is why both political parties and their supporters attack it. Join a TEA Party and help change our nation's leadership so all Americans are safer, freer, and more successful.

To the Laconia Sun,
One hundred, forty-one children and teachers butchered by the Taliban and our President can't bring himself to call them by name, "Taliban." Thirty-five murdered and 185 kidnapped in Nigeria by Muslim terrorists and our mainstream media gives it the casual, ho-hum treatment and doesn't dare call them what they are.
If a Christian thinks homosexuality is a sin he/she gets pilloried on the news. If some black thug, bully and thief attacks a cop and gets killed it cause for rioting, looting and burning with marches chanting "What do we want,---Dead cops. When do we want it ---Now."
The Tea Party wants smaller less intrusive government, lower taxes, our laws to be enforced, the Constitution to be respected and responsible national security and the left calls them extreme. North Korea hacks Sony threatens terrorist attacks on theaters if the show a movie North Korea doesn't like. Sony caves in. Thank you liberal/progressive, politically correct, any-means-justifies-the-ends, pacifists for making the world a far more dangerous and deadly place.
Sooner or later your birds will come home to roost.

To The Daily Sun,
Can you hear it emanating from America's lungs? You know the administration leads to criticism, intimidation, belittlement, and silencing of law and order as Sharpton, white force spokesman, calls attention to a predeclared society that "this war ain't over yet!"
You know the curtain rises to unbridled anarchy. Next will come martial law — confiscation of arms, leading to civil war. Next congress will be sent home and they can't function in this chaos and their safety is at stake. Note: ISIS. An executive order will circumvent the 22nd Amendment and no election is legal under martial law. Habeas corpus will be cancelled and no rail has sufficient capacity to hold an ever increasing population of "Subversives". Maybe Joe Arpio can expand his desert campus with more tents. Or perhaps a more expedient measure invoked.

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.
