Veterans . . . a debt owed!

Veterans include those who have served and those who are serving.To me, the perfect example of what our country owes to our veterans is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. This monument was designed not to be a memorial to the Viet Nam War but to the men and women who served there. The wall currently holds the names of 58,272 service men and women who lost their lives in that conflict. This monument rightfully honors all those who served and risked their lives there. Too many U.S. citizens…See More

You say there are four seasons . . . not in rural New Hampshire there aren’t!The word season can refer to a time of year or even a time of life. The term well seasoned can mean different things. If we are speaking of food it means that the right amount of the right seasonings and spices have been added. If we are speaking of an individual, it usually means that he or she has lived long enough or has been exposed to enough of the right things to be a savvy individual.Living most of my life in…See More

An open Letter to NH Senators and Representatives re: Unconstitutional Wars

Dear N.H. Senators and Representatives: In a Dec. 20, 2007 interview with the Boston Globe, then presidential candidate Barack Obama is quoted as saying, “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”Now that he’s president however, Obama is directly (and actively) contradicting that. He has unilaterally authorized a military attack against Libya…See More

The hidden cost of corruption and scandal

The taxpayers, voters, parents, and Grandparents of New Hampshire are no different than those who inhabit the rest of our country. We relish the opportunity to have National pride. We worry about our children and grandchildren. We work hard and don’t want to see our tax dollars wasted. We are not exempt from a creeping fungus that seems to be infecting politics and government.There has always been a certain amount of corruption and scandal involving elected officials in the United States.…See More

Putting Lipstick on a Politician

The New York Times reported today that the pace of U.S. hiring slowed in May with 54,000 jobs added; the unemployment rate up to 9.1%. 150,000 were expected to be added in May and 250,000 jobs are what were needed to feel that we were making headway against the high unemployment rate. According to the Labor Department, hiring slowed sharply in May, after several months of strong job growth. This raises concerns once again about the staggeringly weak recovery (if a recovery really has begun at…See More

Three words you never want to hear!

There are three words you never want to hear. “You have cancer!” is a statement that strikes fear into the heart of everyone who hears it and is all too often a death knell. Cancer is a disease that picks up speed as it progresses and devastates the body it invades in a merciless attack. It eventually leaves its victim with nothing. It steals health, vitality, pride, financial stability, and joy from those it selects and from…

New Hampshire Representatives set-aside party differences for Veterans

Anyone who has regularly read my opinion pieces knows that I tend to be a critic of most Washington politicians. The regular collusion, corruption, and selfishness that exist in and regularly emanates from our nation’s capitol are shameful at best. The two major parties pulling and tugging to better their own self-interest and acquire the majority of power-broking positions continues non-stop. Party interests usually take precedence over the interest of the country…

But what can I do?

A question that is becoming too familiar right now is "But what can I do?"

 

We sit and watch the daily events on network news and most of us feel bad that the rest of the world cannot enjoy the blessings we take for granite. Blessings like seeing our children fall asleep surrounded by peace and tranquility . . . like…

Hello Robert,

We wanted to let you know that we'll be changing our discussion format over the next few days in order to make it simpler for our members to post on our website.  As part of that process, members will no longer be able to comment on old discussions, although these old discussions will still be visible.  If you'd like your "Putting Lipstick on a Politician" and other discussions to remain active for comment, we encourage you to re-post them as blogs!  Blog postings will remain open to member comments.

Check in next week to see changes to our homepage, as well.  Election season is coming, and the LFDA is getting ready to feature some exclusive candidate content!

Best,

The LFDA Editor
