" Your claim that geothermal heat is responsible for enhanced warmth in the oceans or air is not remotely plausible".

Letter: What climate change looks like

Why would Artie T agree to let those two ringers hang around at all, let alone "for several months"? And why has Artie T been relegated to handling just the "day-to-day operations"? Does that mean "they", and not Arthur t, will continue to call the shots affecting the direction of the corporation? Is this "deal" really a wolf in sheep's clothing? I see a Bad Moon Rising here. Hold your cards, ladies, we may NOT have a bingo. ...(full comment)

Transparency....hmmm, isn't that something like honesty? You certainly don't expect that from from Northern Pass et al do you? They have showed themselves to be morally corrupt from the beginning of their proposal. For example, filing their initial 700 page report at the midnight hour during a holiday period, claiming they don't want to use eminent domain while they fight with their truckload of lobbyists to get it. Then when the law is tightened to exclude privately funded projects from using it, they decide "Hey, we'll get the rate payers to pay for it, then we CAN use eminent domain!!" Claiming the right to use land that they have no right to use. Claiming to offer the new ROW to snowmobilers, even though the landowners would have to approve that. Bullying people their own property with invasive and illegal 'tests'. Offering Broadband if they can push their way through Coos County, even though they have no right to such claims. The list goes on and on. Just another greedy pack of wolves (no offense to actual wolves), in a flagrant attempt to fatten their already fat wallets. ...(full comment)

Common Core is promoted by stating the current education system is a disaster ... agreed ,.... but why would any sane thinking real American actually think a BIG Govt Federal solution is a cure.

Itsa – We agree on many topics such as government waste and the unaccountability of government sector workers. But this “tax inversion” is not about that. It is about the companies building their business in the US, wanting the benefits of the US, wanting the infrastructure of the US and wanting the customers of the US but not being willing to pay their share of the cost of it. Regardless of how much the government spends if companies shift “their name” off shore then the US citizen has to cover the tax cost that they are adverting. Corporations and the wealthy have gotten tax cuts before and now they just want more for their pockets. Corporations are setting on a reported $1,600,000,000,000 in cash in offshore accounts, so they are making very good money. The stock market is doing well too. These companies show me they have zero consumer loyalty so conversely I will have zero loyalty to them as a customer, actually I will go further and show bias against them. ...(full comment)

Burger King plans expansion of Tim Hortons

Hey, My e-mail to ALL the City Councilors yesterday * got not one reply of even the courtesy of them having received it, let alone of to talk about how their appointed City Manager Aspell who in turn hires the City Assessing Director Temchack who does totally ignore the fact that "they"/ The City had a P.I.L.O.T. with the Feds years and decades ago, of in effect saying to the owners who pay property taxes, of to heck with you owners, of we will NOT comply with the law by RSA Ch. 123:1 to send Uncle Sam / the Feds a property tax bill even when they FAIL to provide the paperwork for to get only their land exempt by RSA 123:2. Or in other words: The City to keep the taxes jacked up on everybody while letting Uncle Sam get away with not paying their over $2 million on their $100 million non-assessed but appraised http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taj_Mahal * = And phone calls to two councilors of one saying that I do not work in his ward of to try another who said the first one was wrong, and even so of that I be not a resident and so have no official gripe of he, in effect, could not care less about those within his ward of thus paying more than their fair share. Plus those of us in the surrounding towns paying more in that County slice of the property tax pie too. So this looking for tax breaks while letting Uncle Sam off the hook is absurd! These City Councilors being officials supposedly took the RSA 42:1 + 92:2 oaths to obey the law, but allow their employees to evade the law! Why doesn't some property tax payer file a claim on their RSA 93-B:1-5 "faithful performance" bond of each one insured for up to $100,000 and get the COPs to prosecute these Councilors who act illegally as against this statute put on the books by Legislators like Councilor Candace Bouchard who wears these two hats, but is two-faced of like her just talking into a mirror to herself! ...(full comment)
