past two years), and I had an issue with Unum Disability Insurance, so if you have them, you might want to think twice. However, I would like to thank Salem Police and Fire for all the help that they gave me. I want to thank Spanos Realty for going way above and beyond for helping me. I’d like to thank my attorney at Boyton and Waldren in Portsmouth, NH, and I am also very grateful for the health care that I have received in this country from Lahey Clinic in Burlington. I want to give a thumbs up to all those that have helped me. I am very grateful!”
“Thumbs down to the person last week
who complained about the town spraying for mosquitos. Please give us your address so we can send all our mosquitos to your house.”
“Thumbs up to William Klessens and his editorial exposing what the Republican controlled legislature is doing to New Hampshire. They are raping our state and putting countless people into devastating conditions. Thank you for exposing what is going on. Who is going to invest in Salem - either businesses or property? People will take one look at the politics and say, ‘I’m not investing or buying in Salem - those people are radical tea baggers.’ I’ll buy in Massachusetts where there is respect and caring for people. I’m really worried about my property value. Who is going to buy a house in Salem with the tea bagger republicans we have in the legislature doing everything they can to disgrace us.”
“Thumbs down to Mr. Bass, and the republicans in the US House voting like lemmings for the Ryan budget resolution. That resolution included
and individual members thereof, including known espionage agents.”

$4,600B in tax cuts, with no commitment to covering the lost revenue. That is all we can tell from usually meme about cutting taxes. From the coverage side, the Ryan budget eliminates eligibility for Medicaid for at least 14 million people. I can imagine what it will do to increase poverty among the aged, and their health care. Thumbs down to Mr. Bass for the human suffering that he will buy with tax cuts for the few.”

“Thumbs up to Dee Lewis for representing the ‘angry woman’ point of view, along with Willy Klesson’s. Both of them spewing their hate-laced diatribes and move on dot org talking points reaffirms the moon-bat mentality of brainless libs.”
“Thumbs up to the woman
who took her husband’s fishing boat out on the lake to get some peace and quiet and read her book. When the Fish and Game warden pulled up and ask for her license, she explained that she wasn’t fishing. The warden pointed to the poles, and stated that she had the equipment, and therefore was guilty. She replied that she would have to charge him with sexual assault. After all, he did have the equipment. Needless to say, he was on his way.”
“Thumbs up to a federal jury for convicting
five former New Orleans police officers to prison terms ranging from six to 65 years for their roles in deadly shootings of unarmed residents on a bridge after Hurricane Katrina. Were they ‘just following orders?’ Police shot six people, killing two, less than a week after the storm’s landfall on Aug. 29, 2005. To make the shootings appear justified, officers conspired to plant a gun, fabricate witnesses and falsify reports.”

Youth sports rely heavily on fundraising and sponsorship to grow and enhance their programs. The people of Salem proved that they support one of the town’s most exciting new sports when they graciously filled the donation cans of the young lacrosse players on what was a cold and windy April afternoon.”
“Thumbs up to State Representatives Gary Azarian, Ron Belanger, D.J. Bettencourt, and Bob Elliott for supporting expanded gaming at Rockingham Park. Thank you for supporting thousands of jobs and being our voice in Concord on this important issue.”

“Thumbs down to all those Salem representatives who did not vote for gambling casinos in the state and for slot machines at Rockingham Park and remember to vote them out in November. Do they not know how many jobs that will be created by having this business in the state and also the amount of money it will bring to Salem. All the gamblers in NH and Mass are taking their money and giving it to CT and RI.”

up to Marc Stevens and
his No State Project for exposing the deception that States exist. It’s an imaginary entity that some politician long ago scribbled on a piece of paper. It’s a fiction. And on his weekly radio show he explains these ideas in detail. His book, Adventures in Legal Land is an effective strategy and method to get the tyrants to leave you alone. It’s a non-confrontational method to dismantle the facade the tyrant/bureaucrat is putting up.”

Bass: Long-Term Highway Bill Vital to New Hampshire’s Economy, Safety Of Roadways
In a letter, Congressman Charles F. Bass (NH-02) and four Republican and Democratic colleagues today urged House Leadership to reconcile any differences and take up the House-version of the Senate Highway Bill (S. 1813, the Mobility, Access and Progress for the 21st Century Act, or MAP-21). With the current transportation authorization set to expire on March 31st, the House is expected to vote later today on a short-term bill that will extend the reauthorization for 90 days until June 30.
“Our nation needs a responsible, effective plan to reauthorize important transportation and infrastructure projects, which are vital to strengthening our economy and ensuring the safety of our highways. House passage of a long- term surface transportation reauthorization would provide the transportation stakeholder community with at least two years of certainty for funding and policies that will allow states and local communities to advance critical infrastructure projects. In New Hampshire, this means that the state could borrow $155 million for the much- needed widening of I-93.
“While the Senate bill is not perfect, and more
work can be done to ensure the fiscal solvency of the transportation fund, Granite Staters expect and deserve a bipartisan solution to this stalemate. We can’t continue to expect our state and contractors to plan and execute projects in the face of such uncertainty.”
New Hampshire Department of Transportation Commissioner Chris Clement said, “Final passage of a Surface Transportation Reauthorization bill similar to the version passed in the U.S. Senate
would be good news for Granite Staters and the users of NH’s transportation systems. The NH Department of Transportation is committed to building and maintaining transportation infrastructure that is safe, reliable, and an asset for economic development in New Hampshire and our communities. This is especially important for the state’s efforts to finish the I-93 Improvements Project which currently needs $250 million in additional funding to complete the work that has already been started.” State Senator Jim Rausch, Chairman of the
Transportation Committee, said, “I applaud Congressman Bass’ leadership in calling for a long-term transportation reauthorization in the House. New Hampshire must have a long-term federal funding solution in order to complete our ten-year transportation plan. Reaching a bipartisan agreement will enable the widening of I-93 – a vital economic thoroughfare – to move forward, alleviate the traffic congestion in Windham, Derry, and surrounding communities, and make this roadway safer for all motorists. As the federal process moves forward, it is also critical that any final agreement maintain at least level funding to ensure continuity of our operations.”
State Representative Carl Seidel of Nashua,
the Vice-Chair of the House Public Works and Highways Committee, said, “The state of New Hampshire relies on the long term commitment of the federal government to fund transportation and infrastructure programs. We have a 10-year program for New Hampshire that depends on the federal commitment. MAP-21 will provide some of the needed funds for that program, although I

personally would have preferred a deeper cut in federal spending in other areas.” Darren Benoit, P.E., and Government Relations Chairman of the American Society of Civil Engineers – New Hampshire, said, “Passage of a Surface Transportation Bill in the 112th Congress is absolutely critical to the economic recovery of New Hampshire. In addition to creating jobs in the construction industry, this will provide our leaders the needed confidence to push forward with the I-93 widening from the Massachusetts border to Manchester and ultimately send a clear message to private investors that New Hampshire is open for business!”
The text of the letter Bass signed to House Leadership is below: March 26, 2012 Dear Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, Minority Leader Pelosi, and Minority Whip Hoyer: As you know, providing authorization for transportation and infrastructure projects is a core function of the government. With the current transportation bill set to expire on March 31, 2012, we write to emphasize the importance of the House taking action to immediately provide some certainty in the transportation sector. The last major transportation bill expired September 30, 2009, and since then Congress has been unable to put in place a long-term reauthorization of the Surface Transportation bill. This lack of certainty has hampered state transportation departments’ ability to commit to long-term transportation projects, which has impeded the ability of local governments to adequately plan for their community’s transportation needs. Additionally, this has
increased instability within the construction industry.
The Senate recently passed the Moving Ahead
for Progress in the 21st Century Act, known commonly as MAP-21. While by no means perfect, this legislation passed unanimously out of committee, and received significant bipartisan support on the Senate floor with 74 votes. While we believe that a longer term bill is ideal, the Senate bill would provide the transportation stakeholder community with two years of certain funding and policies that will allow state Departments of Transportation and other transportation agencies to embark on the work necessary to keep American goods and people moving. Providing this certainty as soon as possible is particularly important in colder weather climates, where the construction season is short and just beginning for 2012.
With no indication that an alternate longer-term bill will be brought to the House floor by March 31, 2012, we urge the House to reconcile any potential blue slip procedural issues and take up the House-version of S. 1813, the Mobility, Access and Progress for the 21st century. Transportation is a priority for all Americans. Our constituents deserve to see Congress act swiftly and in a bipartisan way on this important issue.

and courage to submit a bill! We have President Obama who can’t get even one vote for his bill. Then, there is Harry Reid that has refused to bring a budget to the floor of the Senate for over three years. Now that is crazy and weak!”
“Thumbs up to Patty McD for your probing questions to Steven Campbell at the Budget Committee meeting. It’s great that Steven Campbell is now divulging non-public information at Budget Committee meetings. Keep up the good work. Go Patty, go!”
“Thumbs down to the Republican majority on the Supreme Court. The vote on strip searches allowed even for a minor offence, Republicans – 5, Democrats – 4. If you think President Obama has a shot at winning on the mandate issue for affordable health care, well, forget about it. Partisanship rules even on the Supreme Court and that is really, really sad.”
“Thumbs up to all of the decent people there are in the conservative side. And just say no to Barack Husain Obama.”
