ROTFLMAO...you would trust a Koch over what you term a 'progressive'. You have no knowledge of either. What 'power' does NH government have that you consider to be 'too much'. And, be as specific as possible, no flights of fantasy, please. ...(full comment)

My Turn: On energy, governors preparing to repeat mistakes of the past

If he has worked as a Legal Aid lawyer for 8 years, he ain't no 1%-er. And "the left" does not "hate" the rich, they just love fairness, and have more than a bumpersticker understanding of capitalism in a democracy. ...(full comment)

So let me guess here, you think what the employees and customers are doing is wrong, and the hiring of 2 failed CEO's is right? ...(full comment)

Editorial: Market Basket gambles, and many may lose

First off, the word arrogance is usually used when an African -American asserts authority, Uppity (chip on his shoulder) is another word associated so as I see it you are prejudiced. I never once seen you comment that Bush Jr. was arrogant. All POTUS are arrogant but you only seem to use the word against Obama, why is that? Please enlighten me. You refuse to acknowledge that the whole conservative base has tried to blockade anything he has tried. I would do the same thing he did, the conservatives refuse to cooperate in any way shape of form, only obstruct, and now the conservative base is mad because he is using his authority to run the country. This country would be much better off had they cooperated, instead of obstructed. Take the conservative blinders off and look at the whole circumstance. Like I've said I know what racism is cause I been in situations where it reared its' ugly head and I've seen good people ruined. Oh by the way, just because I disagree with the republican platform doesn't make me a progressive, just like I don't care for the Democratic platform either. I look at each situation and base my opinions accordingly. As I said before I do agree with your earlier post about MB. ...(full comment)

Market Basket corporate employees threaten walkout

Itsa, I hear ya on the co-CEO thing. Was brutal enough being co-best man at a buddy's wedding, and that was just for one day. Co-CEOs can't coexist for too long. ...(full comment)

I dunno, GWTW. Ronnie was already cutting it to the quick with public approval by firing the lot of them. The damage was done. I mean, just where does an ex-air traffic controller find employment? Think I saw one running the Ferris Wheel at the 1982 Kiwanis Trade Fair in Concord (not sure with the bag over his head). If he had gone for 'all the marbles', by fining &/or jailing them, Reagan probably would've been just a one-term president. It was that big a deal, as you may recall. ...(full comment)

Now you know why NObama got Harry Reid to exercise the nuclear option to put 3 more Obama appointees on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia . The court does not have enough of a case load to support that large a number of judges but now NObama after stacking the court can get them to overturn the decision. We brought it to the readers attention then and all the liberals said it was not court stacking - you have been proven wrong ....again ...(full comment)

Concord Market Basket employees encourage customer boycott

Thank you, Rabbi Nashfi for your comprehensive piece in Wednesday’s Concord Monitor. I think the situation in Gaza is very sad, but it is the leaders of the Islamist group, Hamas, who are responsible for the deteriorating conditions in Gaza and for the current state of affairs. Hamas has no respect for human life; they use their own women and children as human shields. Hamas also does not recognize Israel’s right to exist. On the contrary, their stated goal in the "Charter of Hamas,” states that, "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it.” Obviously, the leaders of Hamas do not want peace and it the innocent civilians, on both sides, who suffer. The issues are complex with good guys and bad guys on both sides, but Israel has a right to defend itself. I would ask so-called “Progressives” in this country to stop spreading anti-Israel rhetoric around. Instead, let's come up with constructive ideas and then, literally, work toward peace. Let’s not continue to spread hatred and intolerance because, that is exactly what Hamas wants. ...(full comment)

My Turn: A primer on the carbon footprint

You continue to post information containing the same misunderstanding of the carbon cycle, and what portion of it--the airborne portion-- is involved in causing the greenhouse effect. That's what the math should be focused on, as gracchus rightly points out. It's well-established from the climate record that climate sensitivity to a doubling of CO2 (from the pre-industrial level) is about 3 degrees C. Any effort to divert attention from this basic fact of climate science is fundamentally dishonest and designed simply meant to mislead and confuse. ...(full comment)

My Turn: A primer on the carbon footprint

Yes this was a well written piece very and very clear and concise. Also on some points very misleading and loose with some of the soft facts. Israel is being attacked by Hamas not the Palestinian that are being killed. With all the Hamas rockets fired there has only been 1 Israeli death compared to 425 Palestinian civilians. So in my view this whole history of violence is lacking one thing. That is moral high ground. These two peoples will continue the blood shed until one is no more, that is the sad truth. Without a miracle there can be no ending. Hamas with their utter disregard for civilian life versus Israel and their homeland. This will get uglier at some point and we will all be sucked into this mess, mark my words. ...(full comment)

Monitor Board of Contributors: Truth and context were early casualties in Gaza conflict

I'll look for it at the library. BTW: I read Michael Crichton's "State of Fear" some years ago. Besides being execrably written, it was replete with errors I'd be happy to point out. I expect I could do the same to "Politically Incorrect..." as well, since distorting the science is the name of the game with such books, underneath a patina of seeming "rationality" and moderation. ...(full comment)
