The Bill & Hillary Clinton Way: any means are justified by the ends

To The Daily Sun,

And the terrorist attacks continue, though not the last few on the massive scale of some recent attacks but deadly, cruel and heartless nevertheless. So where is the Cracrafts, Loesches and Veverkas screaming their outrage about these atrocities?

Have readers noticed their outrage is reserved for Christians and Tea Party folks? It's true, I cannot recall one sentence in one letter from even one of these prolific letter writers where they address their outrage at Muslim terrorists. (They are) too busy studiously ignoring what is politically embarrassing for the left.

It's much more fulfilling to attack political opponents who refuse to fall into line with their distorted world view that socialism is good and free market capitalism is bad. This in spite of the historical fact that capitalism raised more humans out of abject poverty and created the largest middle class and highest standard of living for more people then the world had ever seen. That's not something that can be said about socialism with a straight face.

Debby Wassermann-Schultz resigned as head of the DNC, was booed off the stage at the convention by Bernie Sanders supporters and possibly by some fellow Jews who recognized her silence as Obama and Clinton undercut Israeli, U.S. relations in favor of Muslim nations and organizations sworn to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, as the act of religious treason it was. Another progressive Marxist socialist that turns her back on her culture, religion and people to purse the promise of personal power and privilege. Debby may not have created the knife that was stabbed into Bernie's back but she sure gave it a few twists sure to kill Sanders keep him from having a fair chance of the nomination. But then it's an "any means justifies the ends" which is the Clinton way.

Debby is sure to be on several short lists for some big shinny new desk in any Clinton administration.

My summer as a swim instructor in Gilmanton couldn't have been better

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the children and families of Gilmanton who attended swim lessons at Crystal Lake Park.

Teaching children to swim and be safe in the water has always been a rewarding way for me to spend my summer. Eighty-five children eagerly came each day, filled with enthusiasm for to fun and swim. Every challenge, for the youngest to the oldest swimmers, was met and some exceeded my expectations! As parents, you were supportive and grateful, as you watched their skills develop and strength grow.

It was truly an honor to finish my swimming career here at Crystal Lake Park, with some extraordinary children.

I would encourage any person with their WSI to apply next summer to the Gilmanton Parks and Recreation Department to teach swimming to the best group of children and the kindest, most generous families. Thank you for a wonderful two weeks!

Catherine C. Lines
