The Eagle-Tribune

---- — No more men

An unprovoked beating of a human being happens on a heavily traveled main street in Haverhill at 2 in the afternoon and no one rushed to help him? What in God’s name has become of this society? Men are no longer “men” when they do not have the fortitude to step up and get involved out of fear. I hope those of you who could have helped are proud of yourselves!

Set an example

Today’s busy lifestyle requires the ability to multi-task. We’re so good at it, we’re beyond wishing for more hours in a day. It’s time though, to take a good hard look at multi-tasking behind the wheel. Every time I read in the paper or see something on the TV about a car crossing the center line resulting in injuries or death, I’m convinced it’s the result of multi-tasking distraction. It might be putting on that lipstick, opening your drink or phoning or texting that friend. Shouldn’t your full attention be on your driving? Do you want to live (if you do) the rest of your life knowing that you maimed or killed someone? Is it really worth it? You may think it’s a long way off before your 10-year-old will be driving but time really flies. Kids, even very young ones, are so aware of what you do that you’d better set a good example NOW.

Stop the games

I’ve heard Steve Zanni say that he “stopped the games.” Since the political cronies who first supported him are now against him, I’m convinced Zanni is telling the truth. Mayor, keep cleaning up the city; the average voter is with you!

Taylor fan

I would like to thank the Eagle-Tribune for publishing weekly columns by Taylor Amerding. Taylor always gives the facts and the truth and does his research. I have turned many people on to his articles and they now eagerly await his weekly column. If only the uniformed voters would do the same. Great job, Taylor Amerding, keep those columns coming.

Brainless

If you seriously believe that Barack Obama is the guy with a conscience, then that would lead me to believe, that you, my friend, are the guy without a brain. Your statement goes on to prove, the old saying, that people under 30 who vote Republican don’t have a heart and people over 30 who vote Democrat don’t have a brain.

Endorsements

So Al DiNuccio is back on Facebook and look who he is endorsing — Willy Lantigua and Steve Zanni! Steve was so thrilled with the nod from the Willy-endorser that he wrote on Facebook it was “inspiring.” Wondering with Al’s endorsement of Zanni means the mayor is having a change of heart and will now try to privatize the ambulance. Or with the Willy endorsement from Al, maybe Steve will just try and regionalize everything with Lawrence.

Bush bashers

You know what I have noticed? Whenever an Obama supporter can’t rebut something negative about the president they revert back to bashing President Bush. You voted for the guy and I agree he does not put “boots on the ground” as easily as President Bush did. He prefers golf shoes on the ground and allowing the proliferation of nuclear capabilities in places like Iran and North Korea, which may place all of our kids and their kids in coffins someday here on our own soil. God help us!
