Under Obama the White House is open to wealthy donors for $500,000 per dinner, yet closed to school children, as Obama claims not enough money to pay Secret Service.
They should eliminate Section 8 and low-income housing that is shared by the working class. When we have a snowstorm at our apartment complex, half the cars are covered with snow the next morning, and half are cleaned off. Those cars are owned by the employed who go to work each day so that the lazy ones can stay home. Not all, but most of them are the first ones to destroy their apartments, trash the grounds with litter and dog poop and complain when the elevator does not work for them because their delivery pizza guy had to walk upstairs. Our maintenance staff work around the clock, and they put up with a lot. So does the office. And it is always the ones that live here for free, or $12 a month. It needs to stop. I cannot afford a place in Nantucket, so I don’t live there. I understand my place.
I find it absolutely amazing that at 3 a.m. in the morning, they were having a birthday party for a 7-year-old! The things that go on in this once great city are just incredible!
Regarding cars that will not stop for turning traffic: I do not expect traffic to stop for me. I expect people to have an ounce of kindness, which seems to be too much to ask of people. It is not just in traffic. People are like that everywhere. It’s the “me” generation.
The Second Amendment guarantees the “right to bear arms.” Let’s allow everyone a musket and a cannon. That should match the intent of our forefathers.
To the plow drivers hanging out on the shoulder of the Ward Hill connector recently: Maybe if you were doing your job, I might not have spun my car around. Why is it every time there’s a snowstorm, plows just sit there not doing anything? Isn’t that their job? Whoever has that contract should be fired.
Cost of war
One writer recently said all the billions we spent in Iraq was equal to our budget for a whole year. He was only partly right. He should have mentioned that we have been fighting wars since Korea — that is a lot of decades of war. No wonder we are broke. Even this country cannot fight wars that we can’t afford. It is not Social Security, or unemployment or pensions. These are chump change compared to decades of wars. I am saying as a person much older than these buffoons in Washington or anywhere else that if we don’t stay in our own backyard for a few years, we will never ever get out of debt.
It is not bad enough the value of our homes has fallen and yet the town of Derry significantly increased our taxes — the highest tax rate in New Hampshire — and we get pretty much nothing for it but they can’t even plow the streets for a storm they knew was coming for several days!
