  1. Please push Biden to send more aid NOW to Ukraine before it is to late. The Ukraine forces need more weapons and equipment NOW. Please tell Pres Biden to stop talking a good game and really start sending more military equipment to Ukraine. Thank you for your service.

    • Southern border? Don’t forget those who fly in daily. Don’t forget that it was Chappaquiddick Ted way back in 1965 who said the immigration bill would have little effect on inner city demographics. Now we have sanctuary cities (Ethnic cleansing) here in Communist Massachusetts.

  2. Let’s take care of the astronomical problems here! GAS and food PRICES, drug addicts and other homeless lining our streets in ridiculous numbers, trash polluting our, what used to be, clean city. Businesses, hospitals and schools are short handed, Help Wanted signs in every window…… WE have a BIG problem in our state!

  3. I am 85 and my wife is 83. We are facing a very difficult time since our planned and booked trip to Scandinavia is in great jeopardy due to no available information as to when our renewed passports will arrive.

    We submitted two passsport renewals on Mar 1 2023 using form DS-82 with our current passports and check included.

    We leave for Europe on June 2 2023 for three months on our 60th anniversary Aug 3.

    We understand the difficulty the US govt is having with passport inquiries and but it is clearly impossible to access the Passport Office universal Telephone number and any query to My on line responds “no status available” re our applications.

    It will be very costly if we need to cancel our June,July and August reservations especially three cruise bookings due to lack of passports.

    Without any reasonable estimate of passport delivery , it is not clear when to cancel bookings or worst case cancel the entire trip!!

    My wife and I have not visited close family in Sweden for several years due to Covid restrictions. This may even be our last chance before either we die or close relatives pass away.

    Any help your office could provide regarding our renewed passport delivery date would help us greatly in deciding what to do re this anniversary trip. Our first booked cruise date is already in jeopardy of payment penalty.

    Thank You for any assistance possible.
