Letter: Height of irresponsibility

Despite what Peter Daley of Concord may believe (“Actually, some of us favored BearCat,” Monitor letter, Sept. 19), paranoia is never good public policy.

What citizens like Daley need to realize is that New Hampshire communities, such as Concord, Nashua and other cities that have approved the use of the BeatCat armored law enforcement vehicle, are not now or in the foreseeable future hotbeds of terrorism, anarchism or even magnets for mass protests or serial murderers.

So to spread fear in order to spend limited tax dollars on a nonexistent threat is the height of irresponsibility when there are so many other real challenges that face the majority of communities in our state.

Obama called raising the debt limit "a sign of leadership failure." Out on the campaign trail in July 2008, he suggested the move was downright un-American. TODAY - Obama and the democrats have taken the debt from under 10 trillion to $$$$$17 TRILLION in just 4 + years... the problem is that democrats love waste like the bearcat and they see no problem with it...I do know who is un-American and it is not the Responsible Republicans
