"Don't worry, be happy. Or at least don't be so @#$% negative!"

(Great letter in today's Laconia Daily Sun.  It was refreshing, especially after reading Neil Young's wacky rants as I ate my lunch , a man who wrote we are at " the edge of extinction." Talk about negativity. Do people really take him seriously anymore? )

To the Editor
Russ Wiles wrote Tuesday, July 5, that President Obama and every other Democrat in the country doesn't want to give us the opportunity to feel good about ourselves or feel patriotic. I think he needs to get out of the bomb shelter he's living in because I and most Americans just had one hell of a Fourth of July.
And who's not feeling good about themselves? Maybe you. I feel good, and I'm pretty sure that most Americans are. This country has its flaws, and we're by no means perfect, but the majority of us don't let politics rule our lives. You use words like "alleged" when you talk about articles you read, but then you take what you've read as fact. Most everyone else knows that if it's alleged it can't be factual.
Honestly, in the year or so that I've been reading your letters you have never written one word that has been positive. Have you ever thought about looking for all the positive things in the world today? Maybe you should. They won't be hard to find. Times in this country aren't the best they've ever been, but they sure aren't the worst.
With an outlook like yours how could you not think that things will only get worse. Most of us though don't have your outlook. The United states of America is still the best country in the world and always will be. For some reason all you want to do is bash on it. It's not all bad, you know. You live in one of the most beautiful areas in the world, where year after year people come from all over to enjoy all the natural beauty that it offers. How can you not be enjoying it.
All you have to say is that someone is trying to take it all away from us. Enough is enough Russ. You're bringing us down. Don't worry, be happy. Or at least don't be so @#$% negative!

Few people take Neil Young seriously blogger, but sadly, some in town do along with the likes of the numbnuts that pollute our local papers with their ultra right wing claptrap.
