Veterans degraded by U.S. congress

by Peter Macdonald Sgt USMC Semper Fi

Veterans returning from war today are coming back to being treated sub-stand. Our political leaders receive the finest of medical and other care. This is not just the disabled Veterans of today’s wars. Congress as well as citizens spit on us during the Vietnam conflict.

NH Congress woman Carol Shea-Porter this past week used her influence on the Arm-services committee to have a Veterans Doctor sign a commitment letter to stop me from writing letters to the editor about her. I am a 100% disabled veteran from the Vietnam Conflict. This Congresswoman used the Dover NH police in the attempt to have me locked up for writing a threaten letter. This Congresswoman had a Special Agent fly up from DC in the attempt to have my freedom taken. This Congresswoman did this with lies and miss statements.

I try to file a harassment complaint against her and the Dover And Lee police refuse because of her power. Whom do the Police protect and serve? The money this Congresswoman is wasting for her selfish gain could be used to help today’s disabled veterans.

I have written President Bush, the Veterans administration and many others only to be ignored. The newspapers refuse to print my letters for many reasons. Our Constitution is a worthless piece of paper at this time. The government and powerful use it to increase their power.

The newspapers no longer have ethics and print the truth. No, newspapers print news that best increases their business. Today I heard friends talk about how radio stations are now discussing the newspaper articles about me. The news refuses to print my response to the lies that they write.

Today’s Veterans as well as all other Veterans come home a different person from when they left. You that never served can not understand. Today’s Veterans as well as all the other Veterans receive sub-stand treatment from the American people because newspapers and our political leaders have lost respect for the Veterans that protect our Freedom.

NH Conservatives will rise again

by Rep. Dan Dumaine

Keep the faith. The day is coming when Conservatives will become the majority. As you may have noticed, I did not use the word, “again” because Conservatives have actually not been a majority in this State for a very long time. The damage that the Democratic Party is doing to itself is great. I use the term "great" because it actually is, but it’s also because the damage being done is huge.

The Democratic Party actually believes that this last election was a wake up call for all in the Republican Party when in actuality, it was a wake up call for all the liberals within the Republican Party. The liberals believe that the majority of us who live in this State and this Great Nation actually want to see America lose the war on terror. The liberals believe that our flawed public school monopoly system is the only possible way to educate and therefore, why bother to try anything else. The liberals also believe that a repeal of parental notification is required to protect us from ourselves because we simply can no longer raise our children without help from the village.

Liberals further believe that the right of a business owner to choose how to legally operate his or her privately owned business must be mandated by the Government because second hand smoke just might, will maybe, could possibly cause over 800 deaths a year. In the course of what, twenty, thirty or forty years? While at the same time these very same liberals defend a woman’s right of choice to freely terminate the human lives of their unborn children each and every day. The fact remains that there is unadulterated proof that abortion is responsible for millions of deaths each and every single year.

Let us not forget that liberals from both sides of the isle blocked an effort (CACR34) last term of allowing the people of NH the opportunity to either give or not give us their permission to change our State Constitution which would have recognized traditional marriage as being between one man and one woman. This is exactly why I’ve brought CACR34 back in the form of CACR1. “LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE!”

Oh yes, lets not forget the fact that liberals are also pro-income tax, pro-sales tax, pro-tax and spend, pro-bigger and more intrusive government. If you don’t remember anything else, never forget this. Our liberal Governor has just finished creating a very large budget increase. My question to Governor John Lynch is how are we as taxpayers going to pay for this increase? I as one of your constituents not only want an answer to this question, I have a right to that answer.

In 2008 these liberal legislators from both sides of the isle will finally see that these are things that the people of this Great State and Nation do not want. We are temporarily in the minority now, but keep your chins up, stay proud and always remember how we as your legislators vote.

Setting the record Straight - Semper Fidelis

By Rep. Al Baldasaro

I want to correct the record on the press conference that went on last Thursday at the State Legislatures Building.

1st, I did not crash the press conference and did not loudly interrupt. I was walking by to go to my committee meeting and heard the lies that were coming out of the mouth of a US Marine.

2nd, I waited for them to get done and they asked if there were any questions. I then asked questions to the Marine who did most of the talking and stated my views as a 22 year Active duty, Desert Storm Vet, and a 100 % disable Veteran who knew what was being said was bull. So when they stated that I was not civil, that was wrong, as I stayed very professional and tried to educate that young Marine, that a Marine should not be used as a PAWN byany organization to go against fellow Marines.

I, like many Marines, can not stand there and listen to a US Marine feed the enemy with propaganda, while my brothers and sisters are in harms way in protecting freedom for the Iraqis from the Terrorist, Rapist and Murders. Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing, thanks to many Veterans who gave some like me and many who gave all, so that we can agree to disagree.

As a retired US Marine, I am tired of people like them and John Kerry continuing to show weakness in our country, which in turn provides strength to our enemy.

If you go back into history you will see that for manyyears, our Americans have been either held hostage or slaughter by the terrorist and all we did was lob a few missles. Oh, I am sure they do not payattention to that because they were Republicans and Democrats alike, which did nothing but lob a few missles. All of a sudden, we stand up to the terrorist and some say it is the wrong thing to do which I respect their decision but whenyou feed the enemy with propaganda, I will speak up again.

My concerns are the weak people in our country continue to feed the enemy with a lot of bull while our military is in harm way and the enemy gets stronger in feeding off our weak stomachs for war. They in turn utilize more car bombs to kill Americans to force the talking heads in our country to cut and run like we did in Viet Nam. Many Vets had to live with that loss in their memory for years until Desert Storm, where we brought valor back to our country.

Many of the protesters sit in their big warm houses and keep spewing their propaganda in feeding the enemy every day and I know from my experience; when you are there, you feel that your country is not supporting you in your mission.

Remember one thing that many Marines like me, would have stood up and corrected that young Marine (PAWN), who was being used to support their movement, would voice their opinion to protect the brotherhood of all Marines. My conversation with Marine Vanriper was not a Republican or Democrat issue but a US Marine counseling session on his lack of knowledge on the brotherhood of the Marine Corps

I, as a proud US Marine, will not sit back and take it when someone talks bad about my Marines and many will never understand the term Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful), that all Marines hold in their heart to each other, unless you earned the title.

President Ronald Regan in 1985 stated that, “SOME PEOPLE SPEND AN ENTIRE LIFETIME WONDERING IF THEY MADE A DIFFERENCE. THE MARINES DON'T HAVE THAT PROBLEM".
