Letter: A bad argument

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Americans For Prosperity hot air is behind the threat to pull New Hampshire out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. It was stunning to hear the AFP spokesman try to link RGGI to increased electric prices when the facts are clear that efficiency spending from funds paid by big generators has saved New Hampshire residents money and will continue to do so. The disingenuous response to the question about Koch …

Letter: Don’t forget the arts!

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Again, a Capitol Center for the Arts performance – “Pete Seeger; The Storm King” – is not noted in the Arts and Entertainment section of Thursday’s Monitor. Last week, I looked for an article on “A Centennial Salute to ‘Old Blue Eyes’ Frank Sinatra.” Nothing! Not even a posting in the calendar listings. Tom Brady, with his deflated footballs, would gladly relinquish space …

Letter: Every life matters

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

New Hampshire Right to Life recently held its annual March For Life Rally. There were more than 400 people in attendance at our event, which culminated in a wonderful speaker presentation by Catherine Adair. As a past employee of Planned Parenthood in Boston, Adair shared her experiences of what really happens within the walls of a Planned Parenthood clinic. Her speech was thought-provoking …

Editorial: Kansas has a few lessons for New Hampshire

Letter: Numbers don’t lie

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Deflategate is full of hot air. The score at halftime was Patriots 14, Colts 7. It has been reported that halftime the NFL tested and inflated the balls to proper pressure. The score at the end of the game? Pats 45, Colts 7. If anything, the Pats were …

Letter: Hunters should back ban

Monday, January 26, 2015

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is moving to ban the use of drones, live-action game cameras and smart rifles for the purpose of hunting. New England Backcountry Hunters and Anglers strongly supports this effort. The use of these technologies, which clearly violate the principles of fair …

Letter: Lack of flag etiquette

Monday, January 26, 2015

I hope nobody failed your Flag Etiquette 101 quiz, given the number of obviously wrong choices. My question is somewhat related. Should we still follow the protocol prescribed for honoring our flag and country during the performance of the national anthem? Section 301 of 36 USC Subtitle I …

Letter: Creating crisis

Monday, January 26, 2015

Another manufactured crisis seems to be under construction in Congress. This time its aim is to drive wedges between those receiving their earned Social Security benefits, those receiving Social Security disability and those who will receive those benefits in the future. On the first day of the new …

Letter: The same old story

Monday, January 26, 2015

It’s humankind’s oldest story. Adam and Eve have a sweetheart deal. Paradise is yours as long as you don’t break one simple, arbitrary rule. Fast forward to 1972. The incumbent president is sure to win a landslide re-election but just to get a little more advantage, a “second …

Letter: Show some support, Senator

Monday, January 26, 2015

How did Kelly Ayotte ever get elected? I was totally embarrassed watching her while the president gave his State of the Union speech. I don’t think she is so important that she shouldn’t clap at least once during his speech. That’s not the only thing about her that …

Letter: Guinta’s shadows

Saturday, January 24, 2015

With reference to Election 2014, the Associated Press just reported that Congressman Guinta has new problems. “U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta is once again on the radar of the Federal Election Commission for failing to follow campaign finance disclosure rules.” And last fall, candidate Guinta stated in a political …

Letter: No rolling stops

Saturday, January 24, 2015

The Concord Monitor’s recent editorial position on the rolling stop law is anything but common sense. The Monitor contends that it should always be left up to the individual whether or not to actually stop at a stop sign. It is only necessary that the driver be “. …

Letter: Not a NIMBY

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Someone inferred that I am a NIMBY (not in my backyard) because I am opposed to the Kinder Morgan, NED gas pipeline project. Tell me you would not be a NIMBY if . . . the figurative “backyard” in NIMBY was your actual yard. Someone would clear-cut your …

Letter: Daniels’s continued legacy

Friday, January 23, 2015

Thank you to Ray Duckler for writing the article on Jonathan Daniels (Sunday Monitor, Jan. 18). What many people may not know is that the teenage girl whose life Jonathan saved, Ruby Sales, went on to attend the Episcopal Theological School in Massachusetts, which Daniels had attended. She …
