George Soros & New World Order are behind what's been going on

To The Daily Sun,

Hey everyone, do any of you really want ("what difference does it make?") Hillary? She is still not in jail where she belongs. Even just as bad is communist Bernie Sanders. Do you really want to pay 92 percent taxes? That is your hard-earned money he wants to take from you. He wants communism in America. How do you think that is going to work for our country?

I think we will not know this country anymore in 20 years. Now we have all those from Syria that we have to take care of. They are demanding everything. Send them back where they came from. We have enough problems to deal with here in our country. How is that going to work for this country?

Donald Trump is right in what he says. He is our voice of what we think and say. Jeb Bush should go home. Have we had enough of the same old same? Also both sides are to blame for not doing what they promised. Obama? Well that is another story all by itself. You all know what that is all about. George Soros is behind most of what is going on. It is called the new world order. Too many things wrong to mention. We all know what they are.

Sanders, Clinton, and Jeb Bush. Are you kidding me? They are all tied to the special interests. Why all this money for votes? Why not just the votes? Then, just maybe, we will not have the corruption we are all seeing in this country. It is a shame to see our country go down the tubes. We will become a third world-country.

My monthly water bill is almost 100% higher than it was in 2012

To The Daily Sun,

More than 300 persons living in Belmont and Bow communities, many of them senior citizens on fixed incomes, face drastic water and sewer cost increases if the New Hampshire PUC approves Abenaki Water Company's current rate request.

As a Abenaki customer living in the former Briarcrest community and only 200 feet from Laconia water and sewer lines, you would think engineers would have linked our water and sewer together and keep the needed revenues here in New Hampshire. No, it is a complicated situation today causing dissatisfied customers, bloated water and sewer rates and revenues being paid to a Connecticut company.

Of course, my wife and I could move back to the Nutmeg State, but that's not going to happen and that wouldn't solve a very complicated problem. Actually, in June 2012 we here in Belmont paid about $43 a month for our water and sewer fees. This month's bill from Abenaki was $84.80 — almost a 100 percent increase.

Having worked as a manager for a responsible and dedicated public service firm in Connecticut several years ago, we were lucky to get a 7 percent service rate increase. Of course, times and conditions have changed, but an accumulated 100 percent jump in your monthly sewer and water bill does call for concern and action by the PUC.

We know there's no easy solution to this clouded water and sewer rate case, but we are heartened to hear that State Senator Andrew Hosmer (who attended our Briarcrest meeting last week) is interested in our plight and plans to pursue this rate increase problem with the PUC. If we are to curb this unfair water and sewer increase, we should urge affected customers and local commercial firms to share our concerns with letters to the editors, contact our state officials and attend PUC meetings.

I am hoping my daughter's wedding will be held as scheduled

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to thank Charles Wibel of Wolfeboro and Thomas LeMay of Laconia for their letters supporting Timber Hill Farm in Gilford.

As the mother of a bride, I am hoping that the issues related to hosting events on the farm will be resolved and my daughter's wedding in the beautiful meadow at Timber Hill Farm will be held as scheduled. For my daughter, who has lived in Gilford her entire life, getting married on a farm less than two miles from her childhood home is the ultimate in shopping locally.

I offer my support to the Howe family and I hope the Gilford community will do the same.

Days of fully laissez-faire free market economy are long gone

To The Daily Sun,

Mr. (Tony) Boutin is wildly off-base (again) about Bernie Sanders' beliefs. Comparing Greece to the United States is foolish and misleading. Democratic socialism is defined as having a socialist economy in which the means of production are socially and collectively owned or controlled alongside a politically democratic system of government. Whenever Americans work for the common good and keep investing in that program, the results have been tremendous.

I would like to remind Mr. Boutin that the United States has many programs and services that are socialistic. Listed are but a few examples of democratic socialism which are part and parcel of this country: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the American military, police, firefighters, voting, public libraries, public schools, roads (except toll roads), FDA, EPA, publicly owned mass transit systems, public utilities, the one-fifth of hospitals that are publicly owned, government college grants, scholarships and loans.

As for his Greek red herring, I'd like to refer him to the following excerpt from an article by Jake Novak of CNBC:

"Now it's time to put all of that in perspective. The economic woes America has suffered over the past seven years have certainly been serious. A lot of people did lose their homes, their jobs, and much of their savings. Excessive greed and dishonesty played a big role in it all, and I join the millions of Americans who continue to be disappointed that very few bank officials or brokerage house executives were ever indicted let alone put in jail. Of course I'd like to see the politicians who enabled the crisis be punished too, even as the federal government's role (during the Bush/Cheney Administration) in creating the financial crisis gets less of the attention it deserves. But that aside, I'm thankful we did not see widespread chaos in our streets. We did not see people lining up by the thousands outside banks that were limiting withdrawals. The U.S. did get its credit rating lowered, but we never came close to defaulting on our national debt obligations ... what we're seeing in Greece right now is much, much worse than anything that's happened in the U.S. economically since 2008."

I know Mr. Boutin would love to return to the world he worships of a fully laissez-faire free market. You know, the sort of place where 60-hour, seven-day work weeks are common, child labor is the norm, and if you lose your job you have the wonderful freedom to go sell apples on the street corner. And when you retire you can often look forward to the "golden years" of poverty. Good luck if you get sick.

Well those days are gone, and despite Mr. Boutin's fantasies, most people don't want them to ever return.
