Sound Off

Equal justice

I think that nothing will change unless and until lawmakers are prohibited from enacting laws do not apply to them. Conversely, they should not be allowed to create laws that apply to them only. This should be illegal because any of that is contrary to of the people, by the people and for the people. I am not a lawyer and most of them are. But it seems to me that they are in violation of the Constitution.

Sources

To the commenter “Brainwashed”: I hate to be the one to inform you, but the truth is, most of the real facts come from, Fox News, Howie Carr, Rush Limbaugh, Jeff Kuhner and not the liberal media. I’m happy to read Sound Off and believe the ones you characterized as “brainwashed” are the ones who are paying attention to what is really going on. You stated Fox and the others are despicable sources, well I’ve got to tell you, what’s really despicable is the liberal media that fail to report the truth when it comes to any Democrat but are right there to bash Republicans for the littlest infractions. You stated, learn the facts. Well, I suggest you practice what you preach.

Enlighten me

I agree with “Brainwashed.” There are many hateful, unfounded comments about the president. I would like to know though, just what is there about the president the commenter loves? Is it what he has done for the country? His demeanor? Or maybe his honesty? I really am curious. I don’t think I am either brainwashed or ignorant. Please enlighten me!

Trapping

It’s hard to fathom that the N.H Fish and Game would still allow a trapper to place traps along Hampshire Road, Garabedian Drive and the Salem walking trail. Our national bird the bald eagle was caught in a leg-hold trap and freed unhurt with the good work of the Salem police. But it could have fallen prey to a coyote or a fox. The state birds, the loons, were ingesting fishermen’s split shot and they banned the use of lead sinkers statewide. That area should have been off limits to trapping for good knowing the eagles frequent the area.
