This is why katy burns and the jean shaheen "one worlder"s" want: STAND YOUR GROUND" LAWS In its conclusions issued on Friday, the U.N. panel said "Stand Your Ground" Laws, a controversial self-defense statute in 22 U.S. states, should be reviewed to "remove far-reaching immunity and ensure strict adherence to principles of necessity and proportionality when deadly force is used for self-defense". UN, I would love to see the day your powder blue helmets show up on our shores...between the crooked teeth and sloped shoulders, your crowd is a real formidable force... ...(full comment)

Katy Burns: Locked and loaded – and only 9 years old

Stating no position is, in fact, a position. And it's pretty clear what it is. Ardinger is following in the footsteps of her mentor, former Sen. Sylvia Larson, who opposed state corridors for buried transmission projects (HB 569) and, as Democratic leader, most likely exerted pressure on others to do likewise. It all smacks of IBEW influence. Elect a senator who will represent the people's interests more broadly than just those of big campaign contributors. ...(full comment)

I'm surprised the CM didn't endorse Bob Smith. At the end of the day, the CM wants a Republican candidate who will be no competition for Ms. Rubber Stamp, Jeanne Shaheen. ...(full comment)

"Downtown can fall into the Merrimack River as far as I care." Whence comes all this hostility? Did you once trip on a Main Street curbstone? Get a parking ticket? Bad service at one of the eateries? Or is it merely displaced from some other perceived injury? ...(full comment)

This is an issue of utmost concern to voters. All candidates should state their position clearly with no reservations. Many politicians have turned their back on NH and cozied up with out of state interests and their contributions. Don't vote for anyone who supports no pass or who has voted against underground for large scale transmission lines. ...(full comment)

Did you read the report? --- Yes, a few will lose jobs (0.3 percent), that's an estimate of 500,000 out of 167,000,000 workers. That's not good, but what about the estimated 16,500,000 who will benefit directly? --- And that doesn't include benefits to the overall economy of the increased spending of those who receive wage hikes (low income people mostly spend their extra earnings). --- It's fair to argue against an increase in the minimum wage, but please tell the whole story, not just one side. ...(full comment)
