Sound Off

Marine held

I am really trying to understand this. How can President Obama give enormous praise and kudos to Bowe Bergdahl but leave a U.S. Marine who served with honor for two tours of duty in Afghanistan to rot in a Mexican jail with no effort spent to secure his release despite 100,000 signatures of Americans asking him to act? And that man has been in Mexico for months. Where is the “we have their backs” promise? It’s the same mind set as the IRS scandal being “no big deal,” yet everything that could incriminate him and his lackeys has just “disappeared.”

Blaming Bush

A Sound Off writer, once again, is blaming President Bush for the problems happening in Iraq. Wake up people, Bush is no longer president and hasn’t been for many years. When are these people going to hold President Obama accountable for his actions? He is supposed to be the commander-in-chief, but instead is anything but. Since taking office he has absolutely shown no leadership or love for this country. He bows to Arab sheiks. The national debt has tripled. He has imposed rules and regulations to kill small and large businesses alike. Oil drilling permits are at an all-time low. He ignores the Constitution, which he swore to uphold. There have been more scandals and cover-ups than any president in history. Benghazi, the IRS and of course the latest one. His releasing five of the worst terrorists in the world, for a man who his own fellow soldiers have said was a deserter. Presidents have been impeached for much less. Yet this man, with the liberal news media in his back pocket survives.

Too loud

I noticed radios that can be heard blocks away were not mentioned in the article on curbing noise in Haverhill. A good place to start is near All Saints Church. In the early evening Friday and Saturday cars often speed and blast radios going to and from Route 97.
