Karen Testerman for Governor


For all of the friendly and supportive visitors to our information booth for the Karen Testerman Campaign for Governor, we thank you for your enthusiasm for our campaign and your questions. It is at community events, such as the Hudson Old Home Days, where the Hudson and surrounding communities’ residents could interact with Karen, to talk about the same interests and concerns we all have in New Hampshire.


All candidates always need more campaign volunteers than what they have, because with more volunteers, there are more opportunities to connect with the voters. The local number to call to is 886- 9188, to leave a message to volunteer, for a prompt return call. The Karen Testerman Website is www.karentesterman.net.

Stupidity, 2012, or …


I’ve been trying to figure out why Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and our Democrats Hodes,


Porter, and Shaheen are trying to bankrupt our country. Why are they ignoring the Constitution that they took an oath to uphold? Look at what is happening in Europe—this shows that what the Democrats are doing doesn’t work. So why are they doing it? Is it stupidity, or do they believe that the world is going to end in 2012? If it is neither, then why? Maybe they just hate this country and are trying to deliberately destroy it. They are deliberately running up the debt; how do they think it will be paid for? The so-called rich cannot pay for it all. The so-called rich are the ones that create jobs, so taxing them decreases jobs for the rest of us. To try to make it look good, they passed a law that says before any money is spent, it has to have a source; in other words, try to keep from raising the deficit. But then, they keep spending money anyway, and say it is an emergency so it can increase the deficit. They are trying to destroy the best medical system in the world; their takeover will increase costs and limit care. And wonder what other products they think they can force us to buy—maybe a car from Government Motors? The medical system needs to be fixed, but not by government takeover. Nowhere in the world has this worked. Again, more stupidity or ???? Their latest effort was to try and tax utility companies to limit their emissions, but this will only increase our costs to heat our homes, etc. Utility companies do not pay taxes; their taxes are passed on to the consumer, as is any tax increase for any company. The consumer pays it, or don’t they even understand that? And now they are even putting up ads that say this is a jobs bill—who do they think they are fooling? It has been proven that spending money to get out of a recession or depression does not work. FDR tried it, and it didn’t work. What ended the depression was World War II. Even JFK stated that spending does not work. Ronald Reagan proved what worked—cut spending and taxes. Then, not allowing this country to become energy-independent—it is amazing that Russia can drill in the Bering Sea and they have created a large oil and gas storage

facility on an island only a few miles from Alaska, but we can’t drill in Alaska. Again, let’s continue to destroy our country. This has got to stop! Our children and


grandchildren are going to have to pay for this, and part of the payment will be not living in the best country in the world. Because it will no longer be.


Ralph G. Boehm - Litchfield Limit Personal


Campaign Contributions


Bill Binnie, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, is continuously on TV with political commercials. As of August 15, Mr. Binnie has spent about $3.5 million of his own money, which is allowed by our laws. Mr. Binnie is very wealthy and he can afford to inject many millions of his wealth into his political campaign, but other candidates do not have huge personal fortunes.


Unfortunately, over the years, many


wealthy candidates have been able to use their wealth to promote their candidacy, and essentially indirectly buy their way into elected positions. The Kennedys, Rockefellers, Mitt Romney, and John Kerry are all examples of politicians who have used their wealth to gain political office. Wealthy people have an unfair advantage running for political office because there is no limit on the amount of personal money they can contribute to their campaigns. I suggest we pass a law limiting the amount of personal money candidates can contribute to their campaigns. Maybe $100,000 would be a reasonable limit.


Donald A. Moskowitz - Londonderry Charlie with


Outdoors Binoculars


Chalk


Anyone who has spent much time in a deer stand, watching wildlife, or even viewing scenery, is aware that using binoculars can improve the odds of success, as well as add to your time outdoors. Properly using binoculars will open your eyes to animals and scenery you may have never noticed otherwise. A good pair of binoculars can be a lifetime purchase, and will provide you years of pleasure. Some of the best values exist in the mid-priced roof prism


(straight-barrel design) binoculars. These are the binoculars that will do the best job for most individuals. Waterproofing should be a must in hunting binoculars, and most of the mid-priced roof prism binoculars offer this feature. Look for the most features you can afford, such as phase correction (coatings that improve brightness, color, and resolution), heavy rubber armor, rugged assembly, and nitrogen-filled. These were formerly available only in high-priced European optics. Now, you can purchase binoculars with these features in the $300-$500 range. Buying binoculars in the $50-$150 range will limit you to the Porro (shoulder design) prism binoculars. These binoculars will still give you nice, sharp optics, but you’ll have to accept the fact that the binoculars will probably not be waterproof and will be relatively fragile. The power of the optics is expressed as two numbers, such as


7 × 35. The first is the number of times magnification, and the second is the diameter of the objective lens. A larger objective lens makes sense during low-light conditions since it can capture more of the available light. Consider purchasing full- or mid-size binoculars rather than the small, compact binoculars that use 20-25 mm objective lenses. There is nothing wrong with owning a small, compact binocular, but it should not be your primary hunting binocular.
