What’s that old saying about the fastest way to become a millionaire? It goes something like this…first you take $800,000.00 dollars, then you….

Or you could get the State of New Hampshire to buy you FOUR half a million dollar busses, then have taxpayers lease you 16 more at no charge, pay your insurance, buy your fuel, cover your employee costs, let you use public parking lots, pay for your advertising etc. so you could provide bus service to Boston. THAT would be a good way to make a few bucks.

Then what do we do about those pesky competitors – the little guys. Hmmmmmmm.

How about we let them use the publicly funded park and ride lots, BUT theses poor slobs have to pay a $5.00 fee to hop on a bus other than “Boston Express” - your new company. That would be the new creation of the long time NH bus company C&J. So according to this new public-private venture, no matter who tries to compete with Boston Express/NH they will instantly be saddled with a “boarding fee.”

The “J” in C&J stands for Jim Jalbert and my sources tell me (drum-roll please) that Mr. Jalbert is on the “Citizens Advisory Transportation Committee” described on one state web site as:

"New Hampshire Long Range Transportation Plan," created by the 24-member committee--made up of state and local officials, business leaders, housing advocates, environmental groups and community organizations--pulls together several recommendations largely emphasizing the concept that transportation and land use are inextricably linked.”

The New Hampshire Charitable Trust is a big player in this “citizens committee” and is helping the state with its ten year highway plan which has always made me a bit uncomfortable. I mean, why do we need big-money moonbats meddling in transportation issues? Can’t they just write a check for something and stay out of “planning.”

Let me do a rundown on the public/private/federally-funded/Larry/Moe/and Shemp deal so far:

We, the State of NH, take about $8 million of the $8 billion Federal budget for keeping our air clean.

Then we use taxpayer money to cobble together a three year taxpayer-funded scheme to provide a service that is already in place privately.

We put together a bid, rigged so no other transportation company can effectively win it.

Not bad. In the end, non-subsidized competitors will either be gone or financially damaged. And it was so Monopoleasy

Welcome to Lynchachusetts.


They Are Running Out Of Stupid Things To Do In Windsor

All the blubbering resignations, blame, and heroic tales of self-sacrifice spread before the residents of Windsor, NH who showed up at the Town hall to hear Select Board Chair Tom Carlson abruptly resign really amount to business as usual.


In the waning/whining moments that make up every resignation of an incompetent or even outright crooked town official, those who support the individual get a mandatory and ego stroking earful of how much of their love and good intentions were bestowed over the years on the community they have dominated or abused.


Part of the ritual is “the naming of the damned.” “The naming of the damned” is designed to set forth in all municipal eternity exactly who is responsible for the exit of the “most precious one.” This technique must be printed in some sort of non-public handbook the NH Municipal Association laterals to those who’s time has come.


And time finally ran out for Tom Carlson, ex-selectman of Windsor, as well as his wife Pauline, now ex-treasurer of Windsor, who is also letting the screen door nudge her along.


But wait just one glory filled crock of crap opera!


What about Holly Tom? Remember Holly, the Secretary to the Windsor selectmen for nine years until you abruptly, suspiciously, and without cause, fired her at your last meeting?


Does she get her job back now that ANOTHER of the TWO of the nitwits who oversaw the non-collection of property taxes for eight years has resigned?


How about one brief shining moment of “Hey lets do something smart!” before you close shop and slink away.


That is a nagging problem, boys – that firing Holly thing, turns out people LIKE her.


Along with that nagging problem is a nagging question:


Why are Selectmen resigning BEFORE the audit comes out? What’s a few more months between old friends.




Sticks And Stones Won't Break My ANTI-TAX Bones

This is all so confusing, this anti-tax stuff.

I am an efficient small government - personal responsibility activist of sorts – home grown. I have no degree from any community college or nothin.

No wonder the anti-tax label confuses me, being I am on the inside (NHInsider.com, get it?) of some of what is called the anti-tax movement in NH.

Here goes.

Recently, a REAL journalist from what is still called Union Leader wrote about the anti-tax movement folks (The NH Advantage Coalition) in our state getting signatures on a spending cap petition in Manchester where our REAL journalist has a weekly REAL journalist column.

Here is a line from the Union Leader REAL journalist article about spending cap volunteers collecting signatures:

"I'd say we're at a little more than 80 percent," said Simmons , the anti-tax group's executive director. "Eh, let's just say 80 percent. We'll play it conservative."

Now if I have it right this crackerjack journalist refers to SPENDING CAP petitioners as ANTI-TAX.

So what do we do with Windsor, NH?

Our Windsor Coalition of NH Taxpayers group has been fighting to get property taxes collected from everyone in town who owes taxes, as per state law, even friends and relatives of the elected officials in town.

Is the Windsor Coalition an anti-tax group? Could they be a pro-tax group? Might they be an efficient small government - personal responsibility group? Some of the biggest obstacles in this skirmish happen to be the foot-draggers at the NH Dept of Revenue who have allowed this to go on for at least 8 years. (All the records previous to that are missing.)

Are you telling me the NH Department of Revenue is ANTI -TAX?

This so confusing to someone without a degree


I Left My Brains - In San Francisco

Imagine defending high gas prices. It takes “courage” for a politician to step up to the plate and say out loud that the only way to an oil free utopia is through pain at the pump – Americans have to submit to the will of OPEC and start conserving and converting to alternative forms of fuel for their automobiles.


Soon to be ex-NH congressperson Carol Shea-Porter has that courage, albeit passed down from her boss, San Francisco liberal Nancy Pelosi. But change takes “courage” none the less.


With friends like Pelosi handing down orders on how to vote and what is good for NH citizens, what more in the way of friends could a progressive politician want?


More good news: The Sierra Socialist Club is going to do pro high gas prices radio spots for Shea-Porter here in NH. Like everything else about Shea-Porter the ads will most likely be generated at the multimillion dollar home of the Sierra Socialists Club – in San Francisco – what a coincidence.


That’s our gal Carol, always looking out for us here in the Granite State – with the help of some of America’s far left moonbat fringe.


I was thinking.


When liberals in Congress finally put these nasty oil companies out of business – and that is the goal right – we’re not just doing this to extort more money from them are we, then we can live happily ever after with recycled paper shopping bags and car tires made out of pine cones.


That’s not crazy it’s the courage to provide change.



Did I Mention They Have The Highest Dropout Rate In The State?




Let’s face it, the Hillsboro/Deering school system is a dump. It has been for a long time and will be for a much longer time. They have tried every imaginable education fad and attracted several education guru superintendents to no avail.


The school budget is as bloated and mismanaged as it can be because that is the ultimate goal of the school. They have a “the community owes us” mentality and it is backed up by a solid collection of incompetents who jealously guard their precious rice bowl. Fine with me, I did my part when I was on their buildings and grounds committee and prevented the looting of an $180,000.00 capital improvements budget by this crowd.


Well I was back at the Hillsboro/ Deering School Board meeting last night for some love.


It seems I broke up the current evening’s hate momentum which was “Let’s get Board member John Segedy!” Mr. Segedy has assumed the position of whipping boy of those responsible for ruining the school.


It their usual pattern, the school ruiners were out in farce taking turns – and personal shots, at school board member John Segedy under the guise of running for, or supporting someone running for, the open seat on the five member board – the last education guru and “for the childrenista” quit as chairperson a few glorious weeks ago leaving a gaping opportunity for another sensible person like Segedy on the board.


And now I come along representing the Durham family and Joel Durham the special needs student Hills/Deering is trying to wrestle away from the professional physical rehabilitation facility he has been at for six years. (I suspect this about a grant of some sort and Joel is a needed number in a quota.)


My simple mission last night was to read a statement by one of Joel’s – this would be the most recent statement, neurologists. This neurologist is the top guy in the country, located at Dartmouth Hospital where Joel has spent some time recently while MEDICAL professionals try to adjust his medication to combat debilitating seizures he has been having.


The chairperson of the H/D School Board approached us before my attempt to read this letter and tried to tell us we were not supposed to speak at this meeting but rather at the next one. Having no one to tell her what to do she relented when we insisted that THIS meeting was the NEXT meeting we were to be placed on when we requested to be at the NEXT meeting during their PREVIOUS meeting.


I was allowed to speak after the sanctimonious clown posse was finished abusing Mr. Segedy.


Deja vu. I had somewhat of a flashback. Attending the school board meeting was a daring duo of Deering’s finest summer people, professional educators who “do it for the children” not the promise of a no heavy lifting, zero responsibility for anything, taxpayer funded summer vacation machine.


Deering summer resident, Ray Petty, was one of these loudmouths, transpose the self-righteous publicity hound Rev. Gene Robinson for Ray and you have a pretty good picture of what Segedy is dealing with. The other guy with Ray was just as self-important and haughty, blathering on about how the school board members who do not agree with a majority should submit to their will. He also thrilled us with his laughable education credentials. I remember these two from Deering politics. Sad people.


My turn.


As I approached the board, Cathy Pepper the chairperson and vegetable in charge, readied her orders: the school policy was not to discuss students at open meetings. I let them know that this was about the HEATH and SAFETY of a student. No matter. Policy is policy even though we had long ago waived the Right to Know Law regarding this issue. The Board would stick with their lawyer’s fuzzy interpretation of RSA 91-A.


Interesting. We TAKE the admitted not quite on point advice of the LAWYER and REJECT the advice of two neurologists regarding the SAFETY of a student - in the name of the children.


I let them know that I will publish everything we talk about, no matter what. John Segedy asked to overrule the Chair’s decision and Joel lost the vote. (In the background Ray Petty was shouting across the room and in a constant mumble to those around him. Why is it so many education professionals have trouble with their emotions?)


But wait! I thought it was everyone else in the room full of education professionals who are “for the children.”


Business as usual.
