Epsom Food Pantry

 

Well, a really, really busy week for Ken, Liz and the gang at the Pantry.

 

First let me thank you from the bottom of our hearts, the men of the Nam Knights of America M/C enforcement Motorcycle Club for their absolutely great array of food donated to the Pantry. The group is led by our own Epsom lad, Mike Dempsey. Boy did he deliver us some food.  Many, many thanks to you all.

 

Then letís salute the boys and girls from Epsom Central for their excellent contribution to the Pantry.  Also, letís not forget the Boy Scouts in the greater Concord area for their absolutely wonderful contribution to our larder. Not to be forgotten, the generous monetary donations that flow in.  All this enables us to serve our members with some delicious and healthy food.  The Thanksgiving Baskets go out this Saturday and that should be a busy but fun day.  Do not forget to see someone at the Pantry to fill out the form for the Christmas  baskets.

 

As I write these articles, I do worry that I might forget some person who has given us a helping hand. Just give me a jingle if I have, and I shall correct the oversight immediately.

 

Until next time,

Priscilla

 


 

Letter To The Editor

 

Americans have long since rejected the philosophy which gave birth to our nation.

 

Most donít even know what that philosophy is.

 

Natural Law is an alien concept to most Americans.  

 

So is the idea that every individual has the right to their life, their liberty and to own and control their own property. . . and that  the sole, legitimate purpose of government is to protect those rights.

 

No, no!

 

Most Americans have a very different political viewpoint today.

 

The following is an excerpt from a statement by the National Socialist Workerís Party [the Naziís], Germany, 1920. 

 

ďWe ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunities for employment and earning a living.

 

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all.  Therefore we demand : . . . 

 

an end to the power of the financial interests.

 

We demand profit sharing in big business.

 

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. 

 

We demand . . . the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state and municipal government.

 

In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education . . . 

 

The government must undertake the improvement of public health . . . 

 

[We] combat the  . . . materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of The Common Good before the Individual Good.Ē

 

Be honest, does the above statement by the National Socialist Workerís Party represent your political viewpoint?
