NASHUA – Bill Griffith stood sipping coffee and scanning the throng of veterans who visited tables to learn about health care and housing, waited to get flu shots, or sifted through piles of donated shirts, socks and sweaters. “I came today to connect with old friends,” Griffith said of the annual Stand Down for homeless veterans at Harbor Homes. Griffith, 61, served in the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1973. His tour of duty included a stint in Vietnam during that war.
NASHUA – As far as Boston-based activist Adrian Yule is concerned, President Barack Obama is a “narcissist in the image of Emperor Nero,” an indefensible war criminal bent on assassinating U.S. citizens. Yule was one of two activists set up on the sidewalk in front of the Nashua post office on Spring Street Wednesday, raising money for the LaRouche PAC. Yule said Obama is “Adolph Hitler and worse” because of his access to nuclear weapons. Set up near Buckingham Place, a veterans housing facility, they posted signs featuring Obama with a Hitler-style mustache.
