The Word Around Town... Letters to our Editor


Barack Hussein Obama, the Worst President in the History of our Nation


He takes after his Marxist father and he is bent on destroying the United


States Constitution. His administration was made up of self proclaimed Communists like Van Jones and Anita Dunn. How sad and shameful that a United States President’s Administration boast, that Mao Tse-tung a Chinese Communist Dictator was a hero in there eye’s. “I happened on an article written by Jacob Laksin on FrontPageMag. com, titled “Obama’s Pick for World Bank Hates Capitalism.” I’d heard a bit about this before but hadn’t yet studied it. I’m so used to Obama’s extremism that such revelations hardly move me, much less surprise me. I know where he stands; I just wish everyone else did.” Quote by David Linbaugh. Since becoming President he has added $5 trillion to the federal deficit and has increased the debt by 44 percent. He has declared war against the coal industry. Not to mention oil companies, and gas. He wants to see gasoline reach $8-$10 a gallon like that of Europe. Too often the President looks towards Europe’s socialized governments like Greece and tries to mold America in their failures. Tere are three ways to destroy a Great Nation as the United States of America. By means of war, national debt and a second term of a president who boasts of working around Congress.


“I’d like to


work my way around Congress.” Quote by Barack Hussein Obama. Te sad truth is he has been since day one. His ideology is a radical left wing menace to America’s Freedom’s, like that of a tyrant or dictator. Hussein Obama’s credit for the finding and death of Bin Laden had little to do with the President. In fact, the hunt for bin laden started with President George Bush and carried out by the United States Military. Te very same military Hussein Obama wanted our veterans to carry private health insurance for treatment of injuries received during their tour of active duty. Remember this statement: “Nobody made these guys go to war. Tey had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice?” By Barack Hussein Obama! Wow! I’m guessing that, other than the 20-25 percent hardcore liberals in the U.S., most will agree that this is just another example why this is the worst president in American history. Obama care! Total madness. Being a strong advocate of Obama Care?


Never in my life. Obama care was supposed to be an affordable health care system. But, are you really going to take an Anti-American’s word for it? Hussein Obama is going to shift tens of millions of people onto the roles of Medicaid. Te end results, is little to no competition in health insurance. Obama Care is really meant to force all Americans onto the roles of Obama Care to pay for his already costly health care system. Soon Medicaid will cost more than current rates. From under $1 trillion to new estimates of nearly $1.7 trillion. Why! Because Congress, under democratic control never read the Law they blindly voted for and passed. With million’s added to the Medicaid role, are you truly blinded in thinking Obama care is going to be reasonably affordable. Do you not realize that Obama Care will be covering Illegal immigrants in our country for free! Oh! Of course you and I will be paying for the illegal immigrants. It maybe free for illegals but

wait to your rates keep going up higher once implemented. As far as, senior citizens choosing between groceries and prescription drugs. Let’s simply say that the grass isn’t greener on the other side of the health care issue. Just another ploy of Hussein Obama’s self-proclaimed ideology to transform the United States into a Tird World Country if elected for a second term!


Stephen Reardon, Hudson Letter Carriers to Conduct Food Drive


Te National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), in conjunction with the Rural Carriers and the U.S. Postal Service, will conduct a Food Drive to help restock community food banks. Tis year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 12, as part of the NALC’s nationwide response to the ever-increasing need for food in the battle against hunger. Residents of Hudson and Litchfield are asked to leave non-perishable food items by their mailboxes on Saturday, May 12, for pickup by their carriers. All food collected will stay in Hudson and Litchfield food banks. In 2011, 12,600 pounds of food was collected and distributed to families in need. Nationally, 70.2 million pounds of food was collected. Great job done by all that donated and volunteered! Tank you and may this year be another successful year for the ones in need.

Constituent Wants to See Ulery’s ALEC Expense Report


I read Rep. Jason Ulery’s guest commentary of April 27 in the


Hudson~Litchfield News on the backlash against the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) with great amusement and a tinge of skepticism. Rep. Ulery complained that the misinformation about ALEC is generated by “politically motivated ad hominem attacks designed to deflect attention from the real issues facing NH.” Whew - I had to go to Wikipedia to learn the definition of ‘ad hominem’ - defined as ‘attacking an opponent’s nature or character rather than the positions they maintain.’ In his article, Rep. Ulery complains that the “robot letter writers” are taking their cues from the “prefabricated political agendas of their commissars.” In Rep. Ulery’s words, if you don’t agree with me, you must be controlled


by communists! My amusement was that his article is therefore a textbook definition of ‘ad hominem’ attacks. But, a New York Times article on ALEC (4/21/12: Conservative


Nonprofit Acts as a Stealth Business Lobbyist) elevated my skepticism. ALEC has an annual operating budget of $7 million: its 2,000 legislator members pay $50 per year for membership. Tat leaves it about $6.9 million short. How the rest is funded - drum roll, please - is from special interests and corporate members. According to Rep. Ulery, legislator members receive no “pay” or “benefits” as a result of membership. I’d certainly like to review a copy of Rep. Ulery’s expense account in attending the last four-day national conference- if only to eliminate my concern that his participation is not being influenced by special interest money. Follow the Money!

Robert Macaraeg, Hudson Debate on More and Not Less Gun Control


Our state has recently seen a wave of senseless murders and at times like this, it sets me to wondering how many of those innocent victims of senseless murders would still be alive had they had any type of gun easily accessible to defend themselves with. I think some of them might still be alive and they might share their thoughts of that without a means of protecting themselves or possibly their children; they might not be alive. We’re also seeing constant news reports of so many burglaries, successful and not so successful and in any of those burglaries or home invasions; there’s always the chance they could turn violent or fatal, when the victims cannot defend themselves, because criminals come prepared to protect themselves or commit acts of violence and even death. In all of these examples, the police can, most of the time, only make


arrests and issue their investigations’ reports after the violence and fatalities. Ten it is too late. We live in a violent society, even in New Hampshire and every citizen has a responsibility, obligation, and a right; to protect and defend themselves, their families, and their property. If anybody gives up those rights, responsibilities, and obligations; they give up being a citizen and maybe even their lives.

Shaheen: Capping Insurance Assistance to Large Farms Could Save $1 Billion a Year


Cutting excessive insurance subsidies to large farms could save taxpayers billions of dollars, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) said April 25. Shaheen called on the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture to consider implementing crop insurance reforms recommended in a recent General Accountability Office (GAO) report. The program helps farmers pay their insurance premiums to protect against risks associated with farming. The GAO report found that about a third of premium supports go to a few large farms, which make up approximately just four percent of farms in the program. In 2011, the largest single recipient of funding was a corporation that received $2.2 million, more than six times the amount provided to all the farms in New Hampshire combined. The report found that large farms like these can afford to pay their insurance without the high level of taxpayer funding they receive under the current program. Shaheen recommended that Congress consider capping

insurance support at $40,000, the same amount placed on other farm programs. The change would have affected no New Hampshire farms in 2011 and would save taxpayers approximately $1 billion a year. “This program is not using taxpayer dollars effectively or efficiently,” Shaheen said. “At a time when we are facing severe across-the-board budget cuts, we have to review all programs to see if they are a smart use of resources. Given our budget constraints, it simply does not make sense for large farms to receive unlimited government help in paying for their insurance. We should put the same common-sense limits on this insurance program as we put on other farm programs.” The taxpayer costs associated with the crop insurance

program have seen a significant rise over the past decade. While it cost taxpayers $2.4 billion ten years ago, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the current program will cost taxpayers almost $9 billion a year for the next decade.
