Put a halt to the spending

Cabinet Letters

The Democrats in the New Hampshire Legislature seem to have lost their minds. The sheer number of bills with enormous price tags have been passed by the Legislature is staggering. As it stands, spending for the 2020-21 budget would grow by $319 million. In the 2022-23 budget, spending would ...

Licenses for people here illegally

Cabinet Letters

Has the lefts agenda dawned on you yet? First, they want to cripple law enforcement, not allow the state and local police to work with the feds regarding illegal immigration. Then they want to abolish ICE. They have pretty much lost the voter id argument, so now the latest ploy, let’s ...

Required to post a bond

HB Letters

The chance to choose

Cabinet Editorials

‘He’s all hat and no cattle’

Cabinet Editorials

As far as I can tell to this point, Beto O’Rourke lives up to, or down to, that old Texas saying: “He’s all hat and no cattle.” Oh, he’s young and enthusiastic and handsome and well-spoken and perhaps he has some ideas, but nothing that’s grabbed me. I’m no huge fan of ...

Gun-Free School Zones Don’t Work

Merrimack Letters

This letter is in response to the article entitled “Gun-Free School Zones” written by the members of the Oyster River Cooperative School Board. HB 564, an act allowing for “Safe School Zones”, will do nothing to ensure the safety of our children. 86% of public mass shootings took ...

Cabinet Editorials

Regardless of the outcome of the recount of the Milford School Board election – scheduled for today, Thursday, March 21 – no one will be able to take away from Holleigh Tlapa the fact that more than 800 of her fellow residents took the time and the effort to write in her name. On the ...

Living a nightmare?
