Response "There's no place like home" Union Leader

Response “There’s no place like home”

To the editor

            Everyone just like the UL say that they recognize the situation of homeless Veterans in NH.  I hear at fundraisers all the time the words just like your article “Homeless” and “Veteran” appearing in the same sentence incomprehensible.  To this day I cannot understand why the UL censors telling it’s readers of the Veteran Resort-Chapel at 101 Stepping Stone Rd.  Lee town officials have stated “we are a community of Professors and UNH support staff so we do not deserve homeless in our neighborhoods”.  To stop the VRC Lee took us to court and a judge ruled a trailer registered in the VRC (owner of property) cannot have a legally registered with NH DMV in our back yard, the VRC cannot have a piece of 4’x4’ scrape plywood with the chapel name on it in our front yard and we cannot have a portable toilet (the same company that rents portable toilets to the town of Lee) on VRC property.  The Judge rules this to be true.  The judge approved “Discrimination” and now this case is in the NH Supreme Court.  Go to the VRC web site www.veteranresortchapel.com and see the documentary film (3minutes long) and see that this entire property is bought and donated to the Veterans NON-profit specifically to help homeless Veterans in NH try to come home.

            The UL and all other newspapers refuse to even print letters to the editor that mention the VRC in them.  The UL and all other newspapers will refuse to print this letter for it demoralizes the news media’s creditability to zero.  The editors and many others may believe that I am a mental case.  Guess what I have four disabilities from my days in the USMC.  Three being combat related disabilities from serving to protect and defend the very documents the UL diminishes. 

            Homeless and Veteran are in the same sentence because of the censorship of newspapers just like the UL.

Peter Macdonald - Shame on Lee NH

To the Editor:  Shame on Lee NH

 

            The shame and disrespect the NH news media, court judge and the Town of Lee have shown US Military Homeless Combat Veterans.  The TOL took the Veteran Resort-Chapel to court to close them down.  A TOL official told me “we are a community of professors and UNH support staff so we do not deserve homeless in our neighborhoods” as their reason.   The charges were a legally registered with the NH-DMV trailer parked in our back 11-acre yard.  The second charge was a scrape piece of plywood with the name of our chapel on it to inform our church members.  The third charge is a portable toilet used by the constructions workers.  The toilet was rented from the same company that the TOL rents from.  There was no zoning ordinance against the toilet so the TOL used the International Plumbers code to tell the court the rented portable toilet was illegal.  The court ruled we cannot park the legally registered trailer on VRC property ever, we must remove the scrape plywood leaning against the flagpole, and we cannot have a rented portable toilet on VRC property.  This is a court ruling that the news media refuses to inform the public.

            The shame and disrespect NH, the courts and the TOL is slamming Homeless Combat US Military Veterans goes beyond belief but it is all documented in the courts.  We the US Military stand with Honor so we can never hurt another US Citizen leaving our Suicide the only answer.  Death with dignity rather than live in the Shame of Lee NH is why many US Military Veterans commit suicide.  The shame you make us feel for coming back alive.  To censor the letters of those that fought to make it for these letters to the editor to be printed is ironic!  I personally do not believe in Suicide but it so I ask the VA not to send the police to my home.   Have a great Veterans Day and try to remember we the ones that discussed you made freedom possible.  Letters to the Editors being censored how real is it to be alive?

Darryl W. Perry - Blood on Maggie Hassan's hands 

Maggie Hassan has blood on her hands. You might not see it at first, but it's there. Look closely, you'll see it.

On July 23, 2013, New Hampshire became the 19th state to legalize medicinal usage of cannabis. The original version of the therapeutic cannabis bill would have allowed qualifying patients to grow their own medicine if certain criteria were met. However, Maggie threatened to veto the legislation if this provision wasn't removed, despite the fact that she voted FOR a similar provision in 2009. This is a freedom enjoyed by therapeutic cannabis patients in Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, and a dozen other states. Now, over one year later, qualifying patients are still not able to legally obtain the medicine they need. The process is so arduous that it may be another 18 months before therapeutic cannabis patients in the Granite State will be able to legally obtain their medicine from one of four alternative treatment centers.

Clayton Holton was one of the therapeutic cannabis patients who has been working for years to convince those in the NH government to allow him the freedom to obtain and use his medicine without threats of violence. Unfortunately, Clayton has become another victim of the drug war, and his blood is on Maggie's hands!

Clayton suffered from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a genetic disorder characterized by degeneration of muscle tissue. In May of last year, when the therapeutic cannabis legislation was working it's way through the NH Legislature, Clayton wrote "[The removal of the home grow provision] means patients will continue to suffer without legal access to marijuana. Frankly, I do not expect to live another two years, so for me, this may as well be a death sentence."

Clayton passed away earlier this week because of the "death sentence" handed down to him by Maggie Hassan. Matt Simon, Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, sent out an alert on Wednesday, reading, "It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of Clayton Holton, the courageous young activist who had been asking New Hampshire to pass a medical marijuana law since 2007...

Clayton earned national recognition in 2007 when he confronted then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a campaign appearance. The resulting video was shared widely, and it resulted in countless viewers becoming educated about the issue."

Simon added, "Sadly, Clayton never got to realize his dream of seeing New Hampshire patients receive protection from arrest. In 2013, after meeting with Clayton and other patients, Governor Hassan told the Senate she would veto the medical marijuana bill if it provided Clayton and other patients with the immediate legal protections and home cultivation provision they were asking for."

Some may accuse me of politicizing Clayton's death, to them I say nothing could be further from the truth. Maggie decided to take a position that she found politically expedient, and the result cost this man his life. Maggie made this a political issue when she told Clayton that he doesn't have a right to grow his own medicine, I'm simply pointing out the blood on her hands.

Orion Karl Daley - Amendment to out source all government jobs !

Dear NH Insider: 

Let simply amend the constitution - I think it is best to out source all government officials - we can insist that they do , and only do their prescribed jobs as government administrators, and not waste tax payer money on divides in the house, or otherwise, and if not doing their job we can quickly replace them with a simple clause - "you are on probation - that is always" 

When they say - 'I hear you" well in this case we can be more assured that they do ! 

They really do not even have to speak our language as most politicians don't anyways.  

They simply just have to follow the Constitution , which should not be that hard . . . .although it seems our politicians today all have their own convenient interpretations. .  

We can pay them below or at minimum wage, and allow them rudimentary living facilities. After all this is what H1-B's are accustomed to in taking America's jobs from US Citizens already.. 

As many American's are jobless by outsourcing, if its supposed to be good for business, well it should be for government too ! 

And since government is supposed to be for the people, well it should be a cost savings at worst. And at best, we might even get something for the taxes paid.  

Sincerely Yours, 

Orion Karl Daley

Save the date, September 2016

Editor:

The New Hampshire political establishment seems to have woken up and discovered that the fine folks over at the Free State Project were actually *serious* about their plans to get 20,000 liberty loving people to move to New Hampshire. This month, the FSP confirmed that they're at 80% of their goal and projects that they will meet their goal in September 2016 thus "triggering the move."

What does this mean for New Hampshire? If you were to read Fergus Cullen's recent op-ed at the Union Leader, you'd come to the conclusion that the Free State Project presents a clear and present danger to the future of New Hampshire on a par with, oh I don't know, fluoridation of the water supply (gasp!) or the heartbreak of psoriasis (shudder!). Well, regardless of the real or imagined impact of the FSP on Mr. Cullen's well being, one thing is looking more and more certain: the Free Staters are coming.
