In 2012, Massachusetts voters decided they didn’t like Senator Scott Brown’s loyalty to Big Oil and they voted him out of the Senate. This year, he’s back, but in New Hampshire, where he is trying to unseat Senator Jeanne Shaheen.In May 2011, Senator Brown voted to protect billions in taxpayer subsidies to oil companies even though they […]
That’s my reaction to the stream of missives from the New Hampshire Democratic Party pleading for dollars to counter the influx into Republican coffers from away. Not only am I not upset that billionaires and millionaires are throwing dollars into political campaigns in the state, that they’re stupid enough to think dollars determine votes tells […]
TRICARE is the health insurance program for members of the military and their dependents. As such, it is a Congressional responsibility and entirely appropriate for the Congress to define in the law.

While the matter seems to have come to a head the last week, regular custormers at Market Basket know it’s been festering for a while.
That’s one interpretation of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services’ version of the Environmental Protection Agency initiative to mitigate the spread of pollutants via storm water — stick it to the homeowners.
It seems the modern day Republican party makes a fetish out of being rude. How else to explain insulting New Hampshire by importing the rube from Massachusetts, or Maine (take your pick), to represent us in the U.S. Senate? Of course, it’s a free country and anyone can live anywhere. But, that’s what makes the […]
