NOBODY has a right to tell me how to defend myself or my home from an intruder. If you break intoRead More my house, you damn well better be prepared to die - period.

Who is to say the criminals wouldn't have killed the owner of the home? He defended himself.
Charlie Hand April 23, 2014 at 05:19 pm
This is really disturbing. 99.9% of the people commenting can think of nothing but killing. KillingRead More used to be a last resort. Today everyone is hoping someone will break in so they can kill them.

Maggie "TAX & SPEND" is INEPT!!! If Maggie and previous Democrat Governors wouldRead More have STOPPED RAIDING the existing monies from the 18 cent gas tax on items not related to highway maintenance there would be PLENTY OF MONEY for these purposes. Why do we the TAX PAYERS have to make up for their LACK of common sense?? This has turned into a PONZI SCHEME.

Yet a majority of people in Salem have voted for every item on the budget ballot that causes ourRead More property taxes to go up.

$6 Bil Vanishes From State Dept. Under Hillary Clinton APRIL 07, 2014 In a mind-boggling example ofRead More how the government blows—or perhaps steals—our tax dollars, billions vanished from the U.S. State Department mostly while Hillary Clinton ran it, according to a new alert issued by the agency’s inspector general. Could the former Secretary of State be using the cash to fund an upcoming presidential campaign? In all, $6 billion are missing and it’s highly unlikely any of the money will ever be recovered. The cash was supposed to be used to pay contractors but it just disappeared and documents that could help track the dough cannot be located. How convenient! The paper trail, which federal law says must be maintained in the case of government contracts, has been destroyed or was never created to begin with.

One positive thing? Um... she never became President?

AN ANALYSIS  WORTH READING: by Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill ClintonRead More beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections; The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. The facts are:  Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. The facts are:   She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked,  it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. The facts are:  Her main board activity, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices. The facts are: Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them. One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror. Think  about it - he's (Dick Morris) said all of this openly, thus if he were not truthful he'd be liable for defamation of  character! And you better believe Hilary would sue him.

This is a great article. If your financial institution has guarantees on fraudulent charges and theyRead More try to stick you with the bill or change certain terms and conditions without consideration or notice, make sure you seek legal advice from an attorney.

Hillary done NOTHING for American prestige around the world?? - - - Utter NONSENSE. - - - She hasRead More shown all those ferin diplomats how a Wellesley girl entertains, when someone else is paying the bills. And how to make meaningless conversation, appering to be serious, whilst saying absolutely nothing meaningful. - - - Ask Putin how deeply he was impressed by Hillary's "EASY" button from Staples. - - - Hillary is a prime example of form over achievement. She always LOOKED very busy, but ask yourself "What did she actually ACCOMPLISH" - - - Better yet, ask the dead Libyans, Egyptians, Syrians, Ukranians, and others. But they, like some others who had dealings with the Clintons, cannot speak.

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch. The people incensed over this should focus their anger on plastic shopping bags as many others are doing over at another great Patch piece. Evil lurks at the checkout counters across America!

Black Panther, you assume a lot. So full of hate, who taught you that?...and if I had two shoes ofRead More the same persuasion, they would be "two right shoes."

@Black Racist of Poetry - The problem with race relations in this country is well, you. I thinkRead More blacks can achieve whatever they set their minds to, and there are numerous examples of that. It was always a measure of racism, whether real or imagined, to think of blacks as being such superior athletes. The implication of course was that they weren't capable of engaging in intellectual pursuits. Here, I state that a goal of affirmative action is to permit them to engage in intellectual activities and you respond by advocating the stereotype of the blacks as being such superior athletes and musicians. You are a real gem, a real credit to the Black Panthers and racists everywhere. By the way, I wouldn't trumpet the black background of rock and roll. Some of us don't like rock and roll. That doesn't mean we don't acknowledge or admire many black musicians. What's even more funny, or in your case, sick, the musicians you mentioned, Beatles, Presley, all acknowledged their debt to black musicians. You are an insult to every black person in this country who seeks to get ahead for himself and his family and rid the country, no the world, of intolerance.

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers are private,Read More no-profit organizations. They are NOT government agencies. Therefore the STATES DO NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO CCSS.
Matt Miller April 23, 2014 at 04:53 pm
So educational professionals and people that hire these students out of college or high schoolRead More shouldn't have a seat at the table? Who should make curriculum decisions? The local school board member that doesn't know anything about a high quality education? The state government that might think creationism and abstinence only education is still what our children should be learning? I'd rather have the Common Core which brought together education professionals from all of the states to make sure my kids have a leg up when they graduate High School. They also brought in companies that have decades of education or hiring experience. What's wrong with having people that know what they are talking about, setting our policy? I'd rather have professionals making these decisions and not some groups that create facebook pages and youtube videos demonizing Common Core because they don't want to listen to the facts.

In the time some of you have spent obsessing about this, you probably could have home-schooled yourRead More kids a couple of grades. I don't know what you're so het up about, but I suspect it's not the quality of your kids' education.
Sherri Levesque April 22, 2014 at 03:21 pm
the NH government needs to be very careful with this or they could end up on the wrong side of theRead More very laws they have written. There are many sick and dying people that dont have time to wait for our government to implement this law. They way I read the original proposed law should be in effect until the state can get dispensaries up and running silly us thinking we were finally going to get some relief

What is holding things up? The reality is that they've not figured a way to tax home grown cannabis.Read More heaven forbid they loose tax money on sales of liquor. So much for live free or die.

These IDIOTS in the Legislature in Concord are INEPT. What will it take to get them off their lazyRead More butts and do the job they were elected for. All they have to do is ISSUE photo ID's to those that qualify and that can be accomplished through the DMV as they already have the necessary equipment to facilitate this. Then allow people to grow the plants until they get the dispensaries up and running. It's NOT FRIGGIN ROCKET SCIENCE!!!!!

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!
