Letter: Override that veto

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

It is with sadness that I write this letter in support of overriding the governor’s veto of House Bill 591, the so-called anti-bullying bill to protect state workers. I’m sad because the governor has been promoting her bipartisan solutions in recent campaign ads, yet she vetoed this bill that both houses supported in a bipartisan effort, and which her office was involved in creating. We are told she vetoed it … 0

Letter: Party swapping isn’t easy or common in New Hampshire

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

A recent editorial stated that in New Hampshire, “party swapping is as common an occurrence as the leaves changing color” and that “devoted Democrats could have had their say in the GOP Senate Primary.” That is wrong. An affiliated voter has to decide to change parties about three months before the election. In order to switch party registration for the 2014 general election, … 0

Letter:

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Brown will push state back toward 2008 Scott Brown has amnesia. His recent ad states that the economy is suffering in New Hampshire, but he forgot that the Republican Party, his party, destroyed our economy in 2008 and gave us the worst economy in 80 years since the Great Depression. He also states that Obamacare isn’t working, which is a total lie. Millions … 0

Letter: Shaheen, not Brown, has worked toward gender equity

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

What are commonly called “women’s issues” are really everyone’s issues. Fairness is not a zero sum game. The Paycheck Fairness Act, supported by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and twice voted down by Scott Brown while he has senator from Massachusetts, is meant to insure that you, your wife, your … 1

Letter: Shaheen’s blind loyalty

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Throughout Barack Obama’s presidency, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has been one of his most ardent supporters. She helped push Obamacare through with deceptive promises, she co-sponsored the DREAM Act, creating a magnet for illegal immigration, and co-signed a letter to the IRS prodding extra scrutiny of political opponents. When … 2

Letter: What about the Democrats?

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

The November election is not just one-sided, Concord Monitor. What’s up? Equal coverage for the Democrats – Jeanne Shaheen, Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter – would be welcomed on the front page, too. ANNIE BAILEY Northwood … 0

Editorial: Big History Project holds big potential

Monday, September 15, 2014

In the battle over education standards and accountability, it’s easy to forget that what really matters in the classroom is student interest. The best teachers know that innovation is the key that opens the learner’s mind, and so they consistently attack subjects from new angles and with fresh … 3

Letter: Let’s elect Scott Brown

Monday, September 15, 2014

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every decision, financial, political and/or social results in intended and unintended consequences. For the past six years, the American people supported the president expecting that we could “transform” the country in positive ways. This did not happen. Enabled … 18

Letter: A few lines about Brown

Monday, September 15, 2014

Regarding Scott Brown’s primary win: Three old adages come to mind. New Hampshire voters appear to have swallowed his ad campaign promises “hook, line and sinker.” However, the “proof of the pudding” will be, if elected in November, his performance in Washington. “All that glitters may not be … 1

Letter: What are you thinking, Brown?

Monday, September 15, 2014

Scott Brown, Scott Brown, owner of barn jacket and pickup truck: What makes you think you are qualified to become a U.S. senator from New Hampshire? What gives you the notion that you’re better than Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who has been representing the people of this state, yes, … 1

Letter: Not made in New Hampshire

Monday, September 15, 2014

The term “state and local election” is becoming an oxymoron with all of the outside money that is pouring into our campaigns. Instead of the meaningless names of the PACs that appear with political ads and tell you nothing about who is really paying, they should be required … 0

Letter: Shaheen with Obama, not constituents, on immigration

Monday, September 15, 2014

Recently, at the request of liberal senators, such as Jeanne Shaheen, who are close to losing their seats this November, President Obama decided to hold off on granting amnesty for thousands of illegal immigrants by executive order until after November. It’s no secret that Shaheen stands with President … 3

Letter: Ayotte meets with everybody

Monday, September 15, 2014

I wanted to take a moment to thank Sen. Kelly Ayotte for being the only member of the state’s congressional delegation to hold town hall meetings. Despite the fact she knows that liberal extremists will show up to her meetings to try to cause problems, she refuses to … 9
