Sound Off

Not socialist

Still more Sound Offs saying we are on our way to socialism. Folks, take your heads out of the sand and look around you. We are being smothered with over 300 million people. Those are not socialism numbers. Our manufacturing has gone overseas; we have millions out of work. If we are not careful, we are heading in another direction and it is not socialism. Do you comprehend?

Fix them

Five dilapidated dumps still standing (in Haverhill) and the mayor can not move forward without the City Council approval. There are people who care about our city and those who don’t. Property owners cannot have multiple chances to rehabilitate their properties. Do what the rest of us do or pay the consequences and please move somewhere else.

Bush lied

It’s baffling as to how, and for that matter why, some of the resident right-wing extremists are still -- over a decade later -- asking for “proof” that Bush blatantly lied to get us into the war in Iraq. Those of us who marched in the Boston and New York demonstrations against the war in 2003 were smart enough and creative enough to know exactly where to find the evidence back then. Is it because they’re too lazy? Is it that they just don’t want to face reality? Or is it perhaps that, despite spending days on end reading right-wing claptrap and blogs filled with hate speech and lies, that they’re just not as media savvy as they claim to be? My suggestion to these layabouts is to try shutting off Fox News and Limbaugh for a spell, and learn how to more effectively use the marvelous tool that is the Internet. Enrich yourselves for once, and stop asking others to do your work for you.
