Crown needed

Five military heroes were killed on duty last week but the Pentagon will not give their family death benefits or help in getting to Dover Air Force Base to claim their bodies. Priests will be charged if they try to say Mass on bases, amber alerts have been suspended, and open air memorials have been cordoned off. But Michelle Obama’s project “Let’s Move” is still up and running and the National Mall was opened up for illegal aliens and an immigration reform rally. Am I the only one who sees something wrong in this picture? The Obama administration is doing all they can to hurt the average Joe. They’re totally inept. Why don’t all you who support Obama just chip in and buy him the crown he sorely wants?

Bullying

I just finished reading the disgusting article in The Eagle-Tribune regarding Mike Gagliardi “bullying” Jennifer Kannan about her education. I do have a high school diploma, but I was unable to attend college because my mother who was the sole breadwinner in my family (with three other siblings) could not afford college tuition for us. I am however, proud to say that I am a manager in an insurance agency right here in Methuen, and probably earn more money than Mr. Gagliardi does. Mayor Zanni, you should bury your head in the sand for allowing someone like Mike to attend the pancake breakfast and please stop pretending you had “nothing to do with it.” Shame on you and your campaign.

No surrender

Rep. John Boehner is now a victim? Poor John Boehner and the Republicans. Would you feel sorry for a gunman and his gang who try to rob you? And when the one at gunpoint says “Please drop your gun,” the gunmen say, “Boo hoo, I won’t surrender.” Surrender? Really?
