Ah yes how the few Pro- Northern Pass people love their Kool-Aid.
1.From the article above and the Northern Pass website... "The project has agreed to bury 8 miles of line in the northern section of the route."
Agreed with who? And the answer is no one. In the particular area that they are so willing to bury 8 miles of their line, it isn't to appease anyone's concerns except the Northern Pass's. Their route is completely blocked there by unwilling landowners so they HOPE they can be granted access through by going underground. Stay tuned for that wrestling match.
2. What does anybody really believe the majority of young people of NH think of the possibility of the siting of the Northern Pass as currently proposed considering it's promise of temporary jobs and lower electrical rates that might achieve a jaw dropping $3.00 savings per month?
Come on, they must be "stoked"! For anyone who might not know, stoked = exhilarated.
I know "BestPresidentReagan", it's a National Security Issue.
Better mix up another batch of Kool-Aid. ...(full comment)
Another danger of straight ticket voting is that you might unknowingly vote for a candidate whose views are diametrically opposed to your own. The term "RINO" has, of course, been bandied about for years, but there are also "DINO's" - folks running as Dems but holding far-right views. It behooves us all, no matter where we are on the political spectrum, to learn everything we can about all the candidates, and to refrain from voting for someone we know nothing about simply because they are running under a particular banner. ...(full comment)
Actually, public employees are quite vulnerable. I was one for about a decade. I was not allowed to have an unlisted number, my salary was printed on the front page of the Union Leader (I didn't mind) and we had to be very circumspect in every area of our lives. ...(full comment)
This is a serious question because I cannot tell, but you *are* joking with your allowable/not allowable list, right? I hope so. I'd hate to think you live in a lopsided world. And, to repeat, this is a serious question. ...(full comment)
Really? Your post is self-serving twaddle. Those of us who put our names behind our posts--I include Walter and GCarson, and more recently JDodson--did so with the sincere belief that our posts had some factual basis to them. I strongly disagreed with JDodson on his facts, but he was always able to keep the discussion civil. That was almost never the case with you or Sailmaker/BPR. Both of you invariably responded to criticism of your facts or logic with attacks on the poster. Claims to the contrary are contradicted by your posting history, which most on here--including rabbit and GWTW if they're being honest, will affirm. ...(full comment)
