---- — Beacon Hill fraud

I can’t believe how disconnected the people down on Beacon Hill are to the lives of the people they supposedly represent. I can’t get to work so I can pay my taxes unless I have enough money to put gas in my car. They have just made that an iffy choice for me. Do I pay the rent, buy groceries, put clothes on my kids’ backs or get all the kids need to start school in the fall? Where do they think I can cut back so that I can pony up more money for them to misuse? There is so much fraud and waste in state government, yet they have the gall to put through more taxes so they can mismanage our money even more! Talk about taxation without representation!

Capitol Hill fraud

How much longer are President Obama and his administration going to lie and deceive the American people? We still are awaiting answers on what happened in Benghazi, why the IRS intimidated and harassed certain groups, why the government continues to spy on American citizens and why Fast and Furious still remains unresolved. Obama to date has been effective on deflecting away from these issues, but time is running out. Obama owes the American people the truth — or could it be the truth will lead to Obama’s resignation and he knows it? One has to wonder. Do we have a president or do we have a corrupt dictator? One thing is for sure: Our president and his administration are masters of deception, fraud and corruption.

Harley hell

I keep chickens and have on occasion had a rooster. Roosters may be noisy but are nowhere as bad as the noise from motorcycles, especially Harleys. I live a quarter mile from Route 111 in New Hampshire, and all weekend long I can hear the obnoxious sound from them as they drown out my neighbor’s rooster.

Thanks for help

I would like to thank the girl and her mom who tried to help me find my car at Rockingham Mall on Saturday. I really appreciate the time and effort it took for their assistance. Many thanks.

Thick as thieves

So let me get this straight. We did what the government told us to do: bought cars that get better mileage and try to use less gas. We listened to what the government said about cigarette smoking and have cut down drastically or stopped altogether. How are we rewarded for doing what our leaders tell us? Taxes on gas and cigarettes are raised and once again, the taxpayer gets it in the pocketbook so the elected representatives can continue their mismanagement and thievery on Beacon Hill. Sure gives you a warm fuzzy, doesn’t it? I often wonder how those people can sleep at night!

Demonized sexuality

Apparently sexuality and womanhood aren’t compatible. If we don’t put out, we are prudes. If we choose to use the pill, we are sluts and prostitutes. If we get pregnant, we are idiots, and if we get abortions we are irresponsible and evil. If we carry an unplanned pregnancy to term, we are leeching welfare queens who are ruining the country. We can do no right, no matter what we do or don’t do.
