A nation that forgets the
´70s will repeat it

Union Leader [Manchester, NH], by Amity Schlaes

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 11/13/2012 4:36:28 PM

Do Americans suddenly like tax increases and bigger government? Or did they simply forget what happens when you raise taxes and make government larger? These are questions to ask as we analyze Tuesday´s election results to discern the fiscal consequences. Advocates of higher taxes prevailed in the presidential and legislative races, and resoundingly. (Snip) These votes suggest Americans are indeed looking at government and taxation differently.

Comments:
Many writers have commented on the contradictions of voter´s political beliefs and their actual votes. Have we lost the ability draw logical conclusions from the facts presented?

The ones aiding the vote cheating and supporting bigger government aren´t the ones who will be paying higher taxes. The morons will still suffer from the currency collapse, but they are, in a word, morons. Which is why morons (aka libtards) should be disenfranchised for the next 10 generations.

The biggest difference between now and the 70´s is that Jimmy Carter didn´t steal his election with rampant vote fraud and we were able to correct the error with Ronaldus Magnus in 1980.

These days, with the collective efforts of TASS (aka the media), the me-gimme-mine´s and the terminally ignorant, as well as the criminal unions and their fraud machines, it would have taken a Reaganesque miracle to win this election.

Oh. Schlaes is talking about the 1970s.
I was hoping the topic was the 1770s.

We´ll see, though...

Think of how many voters weren´t even born in the 70s, or were toddlers, or were blotto.

People can´t remember three years ago, or 6 or 12. How many people remember the low unemployment days and economic growth of the so hated President Bush years?

Hate to harp on this, but people must be educated.

For the ancient Greeks thinking about education like they investigated everything else, saw the process of education as literally leading a person out of the darkness of ignorance into the light of knowledge.

Articles like Amity´s are important. But we´ve got to find ways of disseminating the information. one hopes

How many voters voted GOP but their vote was changed after the fact by a reprogram of the computers? I have to admit I wondered if my vote would be counted TRUE to MY vote as I voted on Election Day. I would rather we go back to basics and write our votes on a piece of paper than wonder if SEIU has reprogrammed the votes to their candidate. I live in SW VA but I still felt threatened by the union voter fraud as I voted.

Half of the country gets representation without taxation. We are now their slaves. If they want more they just pass laws to take it from us. How long we´ll take it is anybody´s guess.

If you haven´t read her The Forgotten Man, do so. This election was a replay of 1936 and the results will be the same- a worsening economy.

The 70s was 40 years ago. Only the people who survived the 70s and are alive today remember it and those are dying off. Stupid is as stupid does if you want the Carter years back.

How NH Dems made Havenstein
eligible for governor
Union Leader [Manchester, NH], by Drew Cline    Original Article
Posted By: nhchemist- 4/10/2014 10:25:30 PM     Post Reply
Walter Havenstein of Alton is running for the Republican nomination for governor. Democrats claim he is ineligible because although he has lived in New Hampshire since 1999 and maintained his legal domicile here all that time, he also was a legal resident of Maryland from 2008-2011. The New Hampshire Constitution states that the governor “shall have been an inhabitant of this state for 7 years next preceding.” (Snip) Because of the Democrats’ insistence that “domicile” be kept strictly separate from “residency,” Havenstein has been a legally domiciled inhabitant of New Hampshire since 1999.

An answer to the perennial question:
Is it safe to pee in the pool?

Sanitary-minded pool-goers who preach "no peeing in the pool," despite ordinary and Olympic swimmers admitting to the practice, now have scientific evidence to back up their concern. Researchers are reporting that when mixed, urine and chlorine can form substances that can cause potential health problems. Their study appears in ACS´ journal Environmental Science & Technology. (Snip) They conclude that swimmers can improve pool conditions by simply urinating where they´re supposed to -- in the bathrooms.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana recently told a Nashua, N.H., audience about his experience with a school bully. Bullying is a nationwide problem, but the bully Jindal was describing was U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who recently tried to crush school choice in Louisiana. Last Monday, March 17, parents in New York City who send their children to Success Academy, a Harlem charter school, filed suit in federal court to stop another school bully, Mayor Bill de Blasio, from denying them previously arranged space in a public school building.

Fiat 500L: The Rich Inner Life

LAST YEAR, somewhere deep in the bowels of Fiat´s Ufficio Stampa in Turin, Italy, an employee had a problem. On the screen was a news release about the first load of Serbia-built Fiat 500Ls arriving from Montenegro to the Port of Baltimore. He or she was obliged to write something pleasant about the car´s driving. The "North American Fiat 500L delivers excellent performance and great driving pleasure," this person perjured blandly. "These enviable characteristics are made even more interesting by typical European handling and precise, responsive steering."

James E. Ryan, a former state representative from Franklin who served as a state chairman for then-Sen. Joe Biden´s presidential primary campaign in 2008, was arrested without incident in Connecticut Tuesday as a fugitive from justice. The state of New Hampshire listed him as a fugitive and issued a warrant for his capture on Feb. 21 when his whereabouts were unknown, said Jeff Lyons, spokesman for the state Department of Corrections. Ryan, 56, entered state prison on Feb. 9, 2010, and was paroled June 24, 2013. Before he left the state and was listed as a fugitive, he was to

Gun control supporters turn to
new front: Corporate America

The American gun control movement is going corporate. Still reeling from the stinging legislative defeats of 2013, proponents of tougher firearm regulations are increasingly turning their focus to private sector campaigns. Gun control groups have claimed victories in recent months, successfully pushing Starbucks to declare guns unwelcome in stores and persuading Facebook to crack down on unregulated firearm solicitations. With no end in sight to the congressional gridlock that has thwarted more stringent federal gun laws, groups say they will continue to apply pressure on major companies.

Branford cop investigated

Branford, Conn. - A Branford police officer is off the job after he got into a fight online with someone about gun ownership. That officer is on leave after he told someone online he couldn’t wait to bang down his door and take his gun. A heated Facebook discussion with a Branford police officer that John Cinque says the cop took too far. “I’ll give my left nut to have the ability or have the opportunity to kick your door in and take your guns.” That was one of the comments Cinque says was over the line. But there is a whole thread of questionable remarks said to be posted by Officer Joe Peterson.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
