---- — Back off!

There is a lot of tailgating going on. Some of us do obey speed limits. Just because there is minimal police presence on our roadways doesn’t mean you can act like an idiot and cause an unsafe situation. You will only cause me to go slower to be more cautious.

Dodging droppings

My husband and I have just started to walk a few weeks ago at the Methuen walking park, where the railroad tracks used to be. Right now it begins at Pep Boys in Salem, N.H., and goes all the way to Malden Mills, which is wonderful. A group of volunteers made this possible. Today as we walked we were dodging horse droppings — a lot of horse droppings. I don’t know if the MSPCA walks their horses on the trail or whoever does should clean up their mess out of respect for others. It is a nice, safe place for seniors or anyone to have a peaceful nature walk. Whoever you are, please don’t spoil this for others.

Do-nothing Dems

When you vote for U.S. senator remember that the representatives running did nothing to protect us from the Marathon bombing. Congressmen Markey and Lynch have been in the House many years and have done nothing to get justice for U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens or victims of the Fort Hood attack, which Obama calls workplace violence. Why would they change their ways if elected to the Senate?

Broken system

Just read about the Daniel Spero and David Burns drug bust. Daniel has been on disability since 1998? The system is definitely broken! I can only pray the mayor is smart enough to stop his disability checks from the city. And people of Massachusetts,you need to wake up and smell the coffee. Stop voting in the same people who do not have our best interests at heart.

Abortion extremist

When Obama spoke last week to Planned Parenthood, he said abortion opponents would take us back to the 1950s. He was absolutely right. They want to go back to when there was no Roe vs. Wade, no legalized abortion, no killing of 55 million babies and no $500 million-a-year profit for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. People have disagreements on abortion, but what Obama said was extremist. He has chosen to further divide the nation.

Fast action

Members of Congress were fast to get off their duffs and pass a bill to get the airport controllers back on the job when their found out their precious vacations would be delayed due to the sequester. We have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Time for term limits. Or do not vote for any incumbent. They are self-serving and forget about us.

Enough is enough

Please, oh please, don’t tell me that after giving that terrorist food stamps, subsidized housing and a scholarship after he got a decent high school education, we are now going to have to pony up for free legal counsel. Boy, are we stupid! This guy has been caught dead to rights doing murder. At what point is it considered that we’ve done what was needed and the American taxpayers are finished being bled. Enough said.
