---- — Gratified

As a taxpayer in North Andover, I was so gratified to see Coach Rafferty reinstated. Finally our belief in “we the people” actually means something.

Sound off

To the caller “Reassess Leaders”: There is a vehicle to voice your opinion without reprisal. Coaches and teachers should have their voices heard. Sound off!

Politicians

To the people who constantly rail about the rich who are not paying their fair share in taxes: You don’t seem to include the politicians who have the best and most of everything, the best real estate, multiple homes, multiple luxury cars, PTO, vacations, luxurious retirement benefits, the best health care — which is not Obamacare. They seem to have you convinced that they are fighting for you and don’t mention how much they have and are getting. Liz Warren said she is not wealthy and has been fighting for the middle class her whole life. She, however, has several million dollars. I would call that very wealthy. They are playing the people who vote for them against each other. They call themselves public servants but are nothing but public parasites, and, it goes all the way to the top.

Postal service

So let’s get this straight. The price of a stamp went up this week, and the postal service will be cut by one day’s delivery. Just keep those union perks and pensions coming, folks. It just keeps getting better and better!

Real money

To the person that would like to buy me a one way ticket to France: Whatever gave you the idea I was talking about you? I was talking about the affluent — you know the ones with the real money, the multimillionaires, billionaires, the 3 million 1-percenters who have it all. Without a doubt, there’s over $1 trillion just laying there and making more money with interest. A lot of it will never be put in circulation. People with that kind of money do not write columns in the paper.

Hypocrisy

Does the hypocrisy ever stop with the liberal progressive Democrat? Ann Kuster recently elected to Congress in New Hampshire has not paid her property taxes on several occasions. She is not a poor individual. So when this fact got out and she was exposed she finally paid her back taxes this week on a couple of properties. These liberal progressive Democrats demand we all pay more in taxes and do our fair share but they refuse to pay their taxes at all. There are multiple examples. I can guarantee you, if Ann Kuster lost the election, her community would still be waiting for her taxes. Ah, Democrats, frauds and the ultimate hypocrites. God help New Hampshire.
