War without end

As a disabled veteran of World War II, would someone explain to me why we are still losing young lives in these endless battles. We have been fighting from Korea, Vietnam to Afghanistan and everything else in between. There was a Hundred Years War, and we are almost there now. There is an old saying that it is always easier to spend other people’s money. I guess it must be with other people’s lives, too. What a shame.

Bad plowing

I still cannot believe how terribly the Lincolnshire/Sherwood development in Bradford was plowed, yet the skinny road of Willow was perfectly plowed down to the pavement and wider than it is when there is no snow. Can someone tell me why this is? The same John Deere tractor plows both neighborhoods! So unsafe for a neighborhood filled with children!

More tickets, please

I am very confused. Why do I see so many cars parked on the streets of Haverhill overnight (outside of houses with empty driveways) without getting parking tickets? There would be an easy way for the city to make some money! Start ticketing the people breaking the law overnight or at least towing their cars so the roads are safely plowed for the people who do obey the parking laws!

Spread the wealth

I agree with “Public waking up.” We are all great and we should all make the same money no matter what we do. Why bother with the hard, complicated positions, or work at all, really? These giant companies and the government, too, have tons of money. Why not give us some? After all, they made it because of us and we deserve all the “stuff” everyone else has, too. And, yes, there will be no jobs out there anyway someday because there will not be any giant companies or any companies, for that matter, to offer them!
