Snowden not a traitor he did not do it for money- most do

To Editor:

I read: "If anyone were to violate the law by leaking classified information outside the legal avenues, certainly that individual should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," Eric Cantor, the No. 2 Republican in the House of Representatives, said on CBS's "This Morning."

He was talking about Ed Snowden, of the Washington Post and Britain's Guardian newspapers alleged to have leaked information because he believed the United States had built a vast and secret espionage machine to spy on Americans.

As a Republican and former Marine Officer who was required to disobey an unlawful order, I am saddened by Mr. Cantor’s statement. Mr. Snowden is upholding the Constitution of the United States, the 4th Amendment, in trying to protect every U. S. citizen from- unreasonable search and seizure, and no warrants shall be issued, but upon probable cause….particularly describing, the place, persons and things to be seized.

The U.S. Congress Intelligence Oversight Committee made an oath to uphold the Constitution and they have failed, not Mr. Snowden. Mr. Snowden recognized an illegal “order” to remain quiet about- an act of spying on no particular persons without particular terrorist connections for warrants and a very unreasonable fishing expedition.

Thank You,

U.S. mayors gang up on Sen Ayotte but have nothing to brag about with their anti gun policies

With tough gun laws where honest citizens were not allowed to protect themselves

The effect of EMF Electro Magnetic Fields/ RF-MV Radio Frequencies-Micro Waves 

The first two links are relate to the title, the third isn’t.  One has to think if some sudden deaths of people taking antidepressants are caused by EMF’s?? 





VRC web site is up 


            The web site is up and in the next week or so it will take shape.  Helping returning from the front US Military Veterans must come first.  Citizens using their own money to build rent free single person tiny structures for US Military Veterans to find their way back is positive action.  Neighbors or any other person that speaks against helping US Military Veterans returning needing help but the flawed system we have is what the naysayers use as the reason not to help these (Veterans) citizens in their neighborhood.  Put the homeless US Military Veteran in any other town or neighborhood but ours.  101 Stepping Stone Rd Veteran Resort-Chapel is not the complete solution to helping all the homeless US Military Veterans that exist in NH alone.  635 registered homeless US Military Veterans exist in this State of New Hampshire.  This is only the registered homeless US Military Veterans.  All homeless US Military Veterans are not drug addicts or alcoholics.  Some are people just like you or anyone else that lost their job or the spouse took everything in the divorce.  Some of these Homeless US Military Veterans are disabled and unable to swim the maze of protocol to get the VA Medical care they need.  The VA turns away just as many veterans seeking help from the effects of their military service because there is no proof of it happening during combat.  I know because of the years of struggle even though I have four service-connected disabilities.  Three of my disabilities are Combat related.  I had a copy of my military medical file so every time the VA lost it I could give them a copy. They say they are working to correct the problems but they say that after every new wave of combat veterans return.  The problems today’s veterans suffer from the VA is the same as before just a new label.   

            On May 29 the Lee ZBA will meet and the subject is the wrongful action of the Town of Lee NH denying the VRC a building permit even though the area is zoned for what was asked to build.  The naysayers tell me that my bad mouthing the selectmen and planning board members that use their government position to make the resident of Lee believe that the VRC is not zoned in this area to build.  The selectmen and planning board member live in this neighborhood and do not want “these type people” (their own words) in their area.  These naysayers make the public believe that I am a danger or mentally ill.  I volunteer almost every day of the week to help other people.  I am not badmouthing any person.  If they do not want me to speak publicly about their actions then do not do it. 

            I am a 100% disabled US Marine from the Vietnam Conflict. My wife and I are using our life savings to help other US Military Veterans. A veteran helping other US Military Veterans not go through what my coming home was.  The newspapers refuse to print the letters to the editor from the VRC informing the residents of these government wrongs.  Ignorant citizens lead to more government wrongs when the next person enters the wrong neighborhood.  Think about it?

Groups should protest Shaheen, not the IRS

To the editor,

Groups in NH who may have been targeted by the IRS should know that despite her expression of disapproval this was done at the request of some US Senators, including their own Jeanne Shaheen in both 2010 and 2012. This is not the first time Shaheen has shown herself to be a hypocrite.

Shaheen’s Manchester and Hampstead offices are where the 2007 NH tea party movement was involved in protests after the Affordable Healthcare Act was introduced with the election of Obama in 2008. Shaheen was being called out for her refusal to hold any Obamacare town halls. After 80 of us showed up at her Hampstead office, she lied about our efforts by putting out a completely false and misleading press release blaming us for blocking her "constituents" from getting help.

Imagine if you will, that she contended we were not her NH constituents when we were, and when it was really our group that was being blocked? No one from out of state, paid for by “Washington insiders, insurance companies, or well-financed special interests” as she claimed we were, would ever have been allowed to be part of our group. However, there were exactly 3 supporters of Obamacare who stood outside. They wore purple shirts and admitted to us that they were paid to be there by SEIU of Massachusetts, including an illegal alien.

We will remember come election time.
