Revenues on existing taxes have increased due to an improving economy, generation of more economicRead More activity, more business climate improvement, more hiring, more people spending money, eating out, etc., and it has been improving for months. What most in the Legislature after arguing about is what to do with that money - make restorations, fund other things, or put it into a rainy day fund, etc. Some of the increased revenue has been used to restore cuts made in the previous biennium, as stated in the article.

Tony, do you agree that "increased revenue" comes from people paying a higher dollarRead More amount in taxes?

"the current governor lives in two houses, both paid for by someone else. taxes included."Read More I got news for you Liz Pierce, so do millions of others that do nothing, absolutely nothing for their country and fellow Taxpayers. For, one you maybe one of them, who knows. But it would be nice if you would compare who is who here and not just point fingers at one person. Pointing out just one person out of a million is not fair, nice and lacks credibility.

Mehy, How is it NOT FAIR to point out that Maggie "Tax & Spend" Hassan doesn't payRead More any property taxes? She is the one that passes laws with regard to rasing taxes that affect every citizen in NH but doesn't have any idea what a HIGH BURDEN Property Tax payers have as she doesn't contribute one penny towards this.

Isn't this interesting. Day, who recently is coming off a humiliating defeat in Bedford, is nowRead More trying to exert his influence in another part of NH because he wants to control the NHGOP. Doesn't he understand that the voters don't want to listen to what he is trying to peddle? Perhaps he will run this guy's campaign and have the same success he had in his own failed campaign and that of his roommate last month here in Bedford. Perhaps Day can organize robocalls like he did in Senator Boutin's District. I wonder how the investigation into those calls is going. I almost forgot to mention again; Day is planning on running for delegate in Bedford (along with his roommate). Any guesses as to how that will turn out?

"we can recapture the “Live Free or Die” spirit of New Hampshire"? Who isRead More "we"? Since you and the people you represent just invaded here to show us poor ignorant rubes how our own state should be run by 'reforming state government at all levels' - your words - and have repeatedly shown that you don't know and don't care about the desires of those of us who have spent the sweat equity to make NH what it is, which unfortunately has attracted vermin like so many of your FSP nutcases have turned out to be... I assume that by "we" you mean NOT THE CITIZENS OF NH. We are not stupid, we are not lazy, we are not takers, and we are not complacent or ignorant - but we are very much offended by you and your group assuming that we are all of those. If you want to become a part of the community and work to keep NH a better place while recognizing that those with different opinions and needs have as much right to be here and be represented as you do, and you do not - by virtue of your "libertarian superiority" deserve to have your own way of things, then welcome. If you intend continue to hurl thinly veiled insults at us, and pretend that those of you who just got here to engage in "activism" and "reform" are here to save us from our own stupid selves and bully people like Jim Scanlon when he dares to question your motives then get the hell out and go back to where you came from. I am quite sure you would feel the same if circumstances were reversed.

"People get arrested, convicted and put in prison when they commit a crime, or succession ofRead More crimes, no matter what their stated motivation may've been. We can't start granting byes for those who steal, or worse, just because same "contracted" a voluntary disease" A lot of traffic stops also result in charges for DRUG POSSESSION for addicts. Do these NON Violent offenders need to be put into the Prison System because they are functioning addicts? If they receive treatment instead of Jail or Prison time wouldn't that make more fiscal sense as it's less expensive to treat someone for addiction than it is for them to be in prison.

strange how we respond just as the terrorists desire us to. the media commemorates each incident asRead More if it were a new profit center to mine for every last click. whole populations now sit in fear of another 'something' about to happen, never again, fully safe like we were in the good old days of the cold war? once these bstrds hit us deep inside our own turf we have not become stronger, but rather 'hardened', emboldened in our delusions of ultimate superiority, no longer safe on our 'island of north america'. each of these events changes us all even imperceptably, forcing us to accept their motives, their ideals, their imam imposed concept of living. we act in unison, determined to show them we are not affected, yet that very demonstration reveals our inner need to respond, to re-affirm our own injury, each of those crowd-felt sympathies we all cling to, even if for the brief moment of our 'crowd'. be strong, and further, be alert, be conspicuous in manner in which you care for each other. shy not away from those who seek your death, but do not embrace them, as they fein no challenge to seek close to your demise.

jpf2361 April 15, 2014 at 01:27 pm
These numbers you are quoting are SKEWED. The NH Department Of Employment Security has NO WAY ofRead More tracking the people that exhausted their unemployment benefits. Which makes them drop off the rolls of the unemployed. I know of several people that fall under this category. Maybe you can dig a little deeper @Dan Tuohy when you are posting an article on the NEWS portion of Patch. Unless you have an ULTERIOR MOTIVE of being a lapdog to to Maggie "Tax & Spend" Hassan that is the most INEPT Governor in NH's history.
jpf2361 April 15, 2014 at 01:42 pm
What has Maggie "Tax & Spend" Hassan done with regard to job creation to qualify herRead More to make the follow statement?? "Gov. Maggie Hassan (D-Exeter) said the data shows good progress. In a statement, she said: "Today’s announcement that participation in the labor force continued to increase while New Hampshire’s unemployment rate dropped to 4.5 percent in March, more than two points below the national average, is another encouraging sign that our economy is continuing to strengthen, allowing businesses to grow and create jobs. To keep our economy moving forward, we must remain committed to addressing our challenges by working together on bipartisan solutions in order to strengthen the middle class, support job-creating businesses and encourage innovative economic growth that will allow all of our people to share in our success and prosperity." **************************************************How does RAISING THE GAS TAX qualify as JOB CREATION. How does raiding the existing supposed DEDICATED GAS TAX MONIES qualify as creating jobs? How does Maggie raiding the Rainy Day fund qualify as creating jobs? Raising Taxes and raiding funds has the reverse effect. It stifles jobs creation and forces layoffs as it increases the cost of doing business in NH for many NH Businesses. @Dan Tuohy Why don't you write an article that TELLS WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON IN NH FOR A CHANGE??? Instead of Kissing Maggie Hassan's INEPT butt!!!!!
jpf2361 April 15, 2014 at 02:13 pm
Maggie TAX & SPEND Hassan is the most INEPT Governor NH has ever had in it's History!!! How doesRead More the expansion of Medicaid to 80,000 people secure the Miiddle Class here in NH? Especially once the Feds stop paying for this program. This FOOLISH program will lead to a a SALES TAX OR INCOME TAX OR BOTH and once the Fed's stop paying 100% for this program the CRAP WILL HIT THE FAN. Mark my Words!! NH is in for a RUDE AWAKENING once this happens, we will have LOST OUR TAX ADVANTAGE and you will see NH Companies leaving in Droves for a better deal from another State that will be happy to give them tax breaks to employ their citizens.

Here's the story I posted this morning and was censored by PATCH Pistol Turned to ‘SubmachineRead More Gun’ By Clueless Media April 15, 2014 | Filed under Constitutional Issues,corruption,Culture,Culture Of Corruption,Democrats,Dumb Criminals,Gun control,Liberals,Media | Posted by Warner Todd Huston Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on. Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy. Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.” Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol. A submachine gun is an automatic rifle that uses pistol cartridges instead of larger ones such as rifle or armor piercing cartridges. A one-hand-held version of this weapon is called a “machine pistol,” but it is also fully automatic. The Intratec pistol used in this crime is not a fully automatic weapon, however. It is semi-auto-meaning it fires only once when the trigger is pulled. It does not expel a stream of bullets like a fully automatic weapon does. Yet, as soon as this story went live on April 13, dozens of other so-called news outlets took up the claim that this dolt used a “submachine gun” in his crime. All one need do is put “Nahshon Shelton submachine gun” in any search engine and dozens of so-called news stories will be revealed saying that the criminal used a “submachine gun.” It all just shows that whenever you see a report on guns in the Old Media establishment, you should not trust it. They don’t even know the proper definitions of firearms terms and from there all their “facts” are suspect.

Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.
