******** In her coming out party

by Niel Young

Advocates Columnist

Not sure who will show up on Wednesdays. Will it be the Editor for

The Weirs Times, who

also works as publicist for Funspot or will it be the President of The Lake

Winnipesaukee Histori-

cal Society, or will it be that columnist who pens

“The Flatlander” column

and frequent candidate seeking office for The Flat- lander Party? All these hats are worn

by Brendan Smith and we’ll be expecting him be- ginning Wednesday 4/21 as a guest during The Ad- vocates: Daily 9:05-10am WEZS 1350 and wezs. com. May I suggest that for those who missed any or all of The Advocates: Saturday, visit for the podcast for 4/17 where you pick the hours - I am confident you will enjoy and be informed in

to kick off her campaign, the challenger to Rep. Fran Wendelboe in the Senate Dist 2 Primary hurled a couple of personal attacks toward Fran. At the Belknap County

GOP monthly meeting last week Fran and the chal- lenger were two of the fea- tured speakers along with Frank Guinta a candidate for Dist. 1 CD in the Sep- tember Primary. The challenger spoke

first. Fran had given much thought to the personal attack on her character. Fran, as always a fine speaker, articulated her knowledge of government, the issues, and budget process. And then Fran took aim at - not the chal- lenger - but an “opera- tive.” For the record, Fran does not employ a “gang of operatives.” Fran tells me she and others are operat- ing a campaign school for those new to seeking office thereby setting an example of how to run your own

Well… Gov. John Lynch

and I do agree, although not for the same reasons. He has threatened to veto the gambling bill. Do you wonder why he has spent money that the (and the Ways and Means Commit- tees should have known this) revenues are not go- ing to come in the amount they predicted. PEOPLE

- WE ARE IN A RECES- SION! Some across the land may refer to their situation as a DEPRES- SION.

We are moving too fast. Legalized gambling is still a gamble for the state and the state taxpayers. Do you question that statement? How do you think the Tef- lon Governor got us into this financial disaster? NH is already in the hole

for $240 million and prob- ably much more for the “gamble” they are taking in prognosticating antici- pated revenue for the next two years. Of course there is the matter of Gov. Teflon attempting to remove $110 million from an account

that does not belong to the state of NH. QUESTIONS: Will the owners of the gaming es- tablishments (permits) go to out of state interests? Will groups of local busi- nessmen/women have a chance to qualify for a permit? $50 million has already been committed to HHS. Do we have that money in hand? ********

From a reader, now lis-

tener: “Hello Neil Young, Thank you for the time to discuss Immigration, legal and illegal, this morning. As we see what the House and Senate do in the next few months, on Compre- hensive Immigration Re- form, will call in again. “I’ve watched your ar-

ticles in the local papers over the years, but this is the first time I’ve tuned in to the radio show...will do that more. I believe the show plays a significant role in our community. Jim.”

******** As stated many times

in this column and dur- ing the radio program: To

be informative and offer my opinion of the issues. So, here is a homework assignment for those of you who have access to a computer.

Jeff Jacoby, Boston

Globe columnist, Septem- ber 10, 2006: “A new low

in Bush-hatred.” QUICK QUOTE: “SIX

YEARS into the Bush ad- ministration, are there any new lows to which the Bush-haters can sink?

George W. Bush has been smeared by the left with every insult imaginable.

He has been called a seg- regationist who yearns to revive Jim Crow and compared ad nauseam to Adolf Hitler. His detrac- tors have accused him of being financially entwined

with Osama bin Laden. Of

presiding over an American gulag. Of being a latter-day Mussolini.” And today’s liberals/socialists includ- ing Barack Obama fear the Tea Party participants. There is more to Jacoby’s op-ed piece. We will dis- cuss this many times here and on radio.
