Rangel's Angles

Nice treatment – if you are special enough to get it.

Sure the NY papers dropped a bomb on Democrat Congressman Charles Rangel by exposing his mortgage free for ten years villa in the Carribean. You know that villa which rents out for $1,100 per night – the one with the ocean views and which somehow appreciated in value ten times while not generating any cash?

I like to call villas like this off-shore tax havens.

The good and caring Democrat Congressman also has a few rent controlled apartments in Harlem he has combined into a small, half-priced, fiefdom. Three of the rent-controlled apartments have been made into one luxury palace for the Democrat Congressman – depriving two other people of housing, I might add. But hey, some people are special.

And we have a third rent-controlled apartment Democrat Congressman Rangel uses for his re-election campaigns, which by the way, foot the half-priced rent bill. Ah government for the people.

What strikes me is how even though he was spanked some and had to pay back taxes on his villa and all, the absolute best deal he received so far, beyond the hundreds of thousands saved in rent and mortgage money over the last twenty years is how his pals in the press, for the most part, broke the story on FRIDAY Sept. 5.

Here it is Sept.20 and the latest - and soon to be last, stories are about how the Democrat Congressman wrangled about $10,000 out of his dusty check book to pay up.

Hey Chaz! Just a warning this time about the taxes and all. Try and keep these sweetheart DEALS a bit more “honestish.” OK buddy? It doesn’t look good for the “Most Honest Congress in History.”

Four Finance Committee Members Walk Into A Bar...

and one of them says to the others, “Would you guys know there was a half a million dollars of our lunch money missing?”

“Nope, we would not,” says the others.

“Then we must be the Concord School District Finance Committee!” says the first member.

And everyone in the bar laughed! True story, and it has just come to the standard municipal conclusion.

It seems the Concord School District Charter was amended in 1983 to eliminate the need for voter oversight (same just happened with the Kearsarge Regional School District, the towns of Merrimack, and Peterborough). The cracker-jack team of nine school board oligarchs, along with their obligatory education industry professional sidekicks, has somehow discovered at least $400,000.00 in lunch money missing over about seven years.

Justice is served along with the pizza and Jello.

The lunch lady has plea bargained a deal with the school and the authorities. Least we have any more sad publicity.

Now I have no inside info as to the terms of the lunch lady deal so I will have to use my past experience to suggest NHInsder.com fans what is really going on.

The lunch lady scarfs $400 grand AT LEAST. You see in municipal financing much is lost in the shuffle to get the story put to bed asap. It costs money to audit an amount that large and the excuse is that the benefits out way the expense.

Let’s say this is a legitimate argument, as in the Town of Ashland in 2001 where the town clerk “misappropriated” at least $2.4 million. She pled guilty to taking $111,000.00 they could prove. After sentencing, the clerk stated she took at least $1 million.

Time served by the Ashland clerk out of the 24 month sentence - about 8 months. Not a bad trade.

The charter-operated Concord School District’s lunch lady was sentenced to 18 months in jail. I suspect she will be out in 6-8 months or less, as opposed to some NH guy in the news this week, David Burns of Kingston, who embezzled $1.6 million from his daughter’s trust fund – he is facing 20 years in a plea deal. (Real money?)

It is always like this with embezzled/stolen public money – light terms cut in half.

But shouldn’t it be just the opposite in the case of public officials? Because of the difficulty in catching a person stealing public funds - they often control the entire paper trail, sometimes only a small portion of the missing tax dollars are ever tracked down.

Remember the Litchfield Treasurer who was charged in March with pilfering about $6,000.00? Anyone taking bets it will be substantially more than that? It has been some time since the story broke. How long does it take to prosecute $6,000.00 after all?

The Concord School District Charter is, on the other hand, directly to blame for this missing money in the first place. The charter was drafted with the intent to keep the school system in Concord under the direct control a just a few individuals, not the voters or a budget committee, and this is what you get.

“Local Control” the Concord School District Charter is NOT.

Star Parker's Star Power

Do you consider yourself a conservative/ know something about family values?

I’ll bet you don’t know as much as you think you do. How is your IQ when it comes to the destruction of inner city families through welfare?

I have met the world’s foremost expert on the subject – Star Parker, and she is coming BACK to NH as the keynote speaker for Cornerstone Policy Network’s Sept. 25 event at C.R. Sparks in Bedford.

Let me borrow from her web site: www. urban cure.org I don’t think she will mind.

“Star Parker is the founder and president of CURE, the Coalition on Urban Renewal & Education, a 501c3 non-profit think tank that provides a national voice of reason on issues of race and poverty in the media, inner city neighborhoods, and public policy.

Prior to her involvement in social activism, Star Parker was a single welfare mother in Los Angeles, California. After receiving Christ, Star returned to college, received a BS degree in marketing and launched an urban Christian magazine. The 1992 Los Angeles riots destroyed her business, yet served as a springboard for her focus on faith and market-based alternatives to empower the lives of the poor.

Star has written three books. Her autobiography "Pimps, Whores & Welfare Brats" was released in 1997 by Pocket Books, "Uncle Sam's Plantation" is released by Thomas Nelson in the fall of 2003, and "White Ghetto: How Middle Class America Reflects Inner City Decay " was released in 2006.

Today, in addition to heading CURE, Star is a syndicated columnist for Scripps Howard News Service, offering weekly op-eds to more than 400 newspapers worldwide, including the Boston Herald, the Dallas Morning News, The Orange County Register, San Diego Union, Arkansas Democrat Gazette, the Washington Times, and the Star and Stripes, the largest paper serving the men and women of our Armed Forces .”

I met Star Parker the last time she spoke in NH, during the primary, when I was asked to be her security, you know, hang around and make sure that none of the highly agitated, non-resident campaign larva that descend on our fair state don’t get up in her face until they deal with mine. Enjoyed the heck out of it! We had a very informative and entertaining evening. Can’t say it was a quiet evening. When Star Parker gets going jaws start dropping and the gloves come off.

Talk about a dynamo! This girl knows how our government has created, and perpetuates, a socialist slave society (my words) out of minority inner city folks through abortion and welfare. She has lived it and lives to tell about it. Thank God.

If you want tickets for this event because you want to know more, or because you want information to shut your liberal friends up when they blather on about how much they “care” about the poor minorities, or you want to get informed and energized about how to FIX urban decay from the family up, contact CPR at: (603) 228-4794 or www.nhcornerstone.org.

This Villa'$ A Killa

What, Democrat Congressman Charles Rangel, chairman of the committee which over sees the IRS has some “tax” problems?

I took a short look at his long haul of unreported cash. Why not, no real reporters will.

Chaz has a villa in the Dominican Republic, like many of us do. He has been renting it out for twenty years and NOT reporting the income. (Have you noticed there are no pictures of this shanty on the web?)

This is a problem? What the hell else do you HAVE a villa in a foreign country for, for gosh sakes, if not to make some clean, tax-free bling? Get off his back already.

So Democrat Congressman Charles Rangel, he of the “Most Ethical Congress in History” so sayeth Democrat Nancy Pelosi, got a no interest loan for his waterfront property, who doesn’t and who cares?

It looks like the guy who set up the deal for Rangel is a New York labor lawyer, naturally, and big time donor to Rangel’s illustrious congressional career. Who cares? His constituents will re-elect him when in the end when there is no criminal charge levied.

The Democrat Congressman also has some questions revolving around him about rent subsidized Harlem properties he may be using for other purposes, such as an office through which he can strong arm supporters for some money to beef up some school named after him.

If a person can be judged guilty or innocent by his choice of counsel I have two words for ya: Lanny Davis. The old “Clinton Clean Up Team” is in full throat.

And still he reigns as Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee.

This is the CHANGE we can expect from Democrats in November – the same old tax and spend attempt at proving socialism works with one crook after another taking care of each other to accomplish the Max Mission..

So why is former California Republican Congressman Duke Cunningham sitting in jail?

Oh that’s right – wrong party. They take out their trash.

This Project Makes The SEGWAY Look Like A Toy

As the Chairman of the Coalition of NH Taxpayers and someone who drives into Concord from the Hillsboro area regularly, I am privy to some not commonly known information about NH’s transportation plans.

You heard it here first! The NH Dept of Transportation is using some highway money for an exciting new gamble. They are working on a project named:

The Henniker/Hopkinton/Boston Regional Airport

Apparently, highway officials noticed that the portion of Rt. 202 between Stumpfield Road in Hopkinton and the Rt. 114 bridge overpass in Henniker was almost as wide as an airport runway – so they decided to make the leap to a full-fledged jumbo jet landing field.

The runway is wide enough to land most planes but now with the addition of extra wide lanes near small, low traffic, country roads, NH will be able to offset some of the increased traffic at the Manchester/Boston Regional Airport.

This is an exciting venture seeing that NH has a $300 million dollar deficit, is borrowing to cover operating expenses and uses 60% of its gas tax money for things other than building roads. We are, through this project, setting an example for other states.

Some might say that using a Grade-all to remove rocks way off of the newly paved sides of the runway was a bit extravagant, not me. It’s hard to concentrate on driving knowing that just 50 feet away, ledge is poking up out of the weeds.

So where is the new terminal if this really is an airport you ask?

Here is what my sources tell me so far.

Just up the road in Hopkinton, there is now, just recently completed, a project where a small apple orchard was leveled to build an 11,000 square foot structure certainly large enough to house a small airport terminal.

Governor Lynch currently lives there.

See the genius in this project? Only in “small government” New Hampshire could a project like this be pulled off.
