Andrew Seales - Yahoo Group Owners In Revolt 

Dear NHInsider:

This is not a form letter for the media. Its a one on one, with one asking for your help to get the word out on something that means a lot to Yahoo group owners and users.

Last month Yahoo rolled out a new group format called 'neo groups'. This was rolled-out with no advance notice.

Several groups including mine were rendered useless. There are major security flaws in the new format. Several elderly and visually impaired have complained that this new system is not in compliance with the ADA. At last count about 75,000 Yahoo group owners and users complained on the Yahoo feedback forum and asked Yahoo to roll-back this system. All to no avail. Hundreds of groups have been deleted by their owners affecting 1 million users. I too had to delete my group with 1500 members. What’s left more me is to force the issue and bring the blasé attitude of Yahoo to the light of day. Maybe you can help with your voice and stature by asking Yahoo to do the right thing and restore the groups to the older format.

Andy

PS The last active teen and family network disbanded this morning. They have 120,000 members.

GMO-FOOD-LABELING



GMO-FOOD-LABELING

It is amazing the logistics involved to supply food to the populace of USA.  Store shelves are always full, just a enormous task.  Lets suppose the food you buy with your hard  earned dollars is not healthy or is not in the best interest of your family‘s health.  Wouldn’t you like to know what foods could poison you or change your DNA.  Lets suppose some foods could produce deadly chemicals in your gut.  Wouldn’t you like to know these facts by labeling such, with proper labeling you could make your own educated choice.  Let suppose the companies responsible for altering your food, lacing the food with deadly chemicals, drugs are against you having this knowledge.

House Bill 660 (GMO Labeling) will be the hot button for the politically astute this fall.  My feeling is any official that opposes food labeling, will be on the outside looking in after the election.  HB 660 will be reported favorably (assumptive) out of committee November 22, 2013.   We have a right to know of all food ingredients, including chemicals, drugs etc.  I want to see HB 660 not only with teeth, but with claws.

I have put together a menu of videos, “Educate Yo'Self”.

Yours in Freedom
Harold

Anonymous - How low can you go? 

How low can you go?

Don't move that limbo bar

You'll be a limbo star

How low can you go?*

How low can the Town of Derry go? 

Two have been arrested from the DPW in Derry's storied history, one the director of the entire operation and the guy who was operating the scales.  A former town administrator claimed to live in town, didn't, but maintained a pied a terre by the lake as if he did, and continued as a police commissioner in another town after saying he wasn't, was caught, then said he hadn't.  A former councilor voted to fund a private economic development outfit then jumped the table to take its directorship once the check cleared.  All this folderol came after he insisted on calling a two million dollar loss on a town funded project a profit because it would make a profit 'someday'.  Derry has a councilor who continually complains about the taxpayers' right to express themselves at meetings after he publicly failed to recuse himself from a vote authorizing the town to take over his own private road, after he had appeared before the council as a ranking member of the committee charged with selecting private roads to be added to the public domain, then named his own road as one of only three to be so added.  But by God he got it done.  Of course, Derry also has a relatively famous fire chief who tried operating for awhile with an unmarked car because he wrote that he was tracking an arson ring and because he felt he needed the anonymity to stand well back in the crowd in order to assess the effectiveness of his officers and men at the conflagrations which all too often hobble Derry.  The Derry fire chief, never one to hide his light under a basket, also travels far and wide, offering his vast expertise to other departments for a fee payable to MRI.  One of these paid pronunciamentos even resulted in the firing of a small town Massachusetts fire chief, whose brief was some 60 miles from Derry.

And with the above wallpaper serving as the backdrop, Derry now has a town administrator who, as far as the townsfolk understand it after reading in the newspapers about the costs of extradition, attorney's fees, transportation fees, the costs of preparing writs, the costs of serving the writ, the costs of the acceptance of the writ, miscellaneous fees, the costs of assessing the costs, and the dreadful difficulties involved in dragging a wanted man from a bordering state to another, and although everyone's been real cooperative both here and there, John Anderson, formerly of Boothbay, Maine, formerly of Derry, and now apparently of Boothbay, Maine, again, without visible means of support since the Derry Town Council pulled the plug on his paychecks, is on the run from charges of indecent exposure and lewdness.  That's right, the current Derry Town Administrator is wanted by the New Hampshire authorities.  But since he's in Maine on a misdemeanor, we won't go get him because of the cost.  And Anderson, as cops say, remains at large. 

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was**

Must the citizenry band together, pool their cash, put up a reward, and engage bounty hunters to bring this sad story to a close?  Should a posse be formed, travel to Maine, and snatch Mr. Anderson and remand him to the High Sheriff of Rockingham County?  How much longer are the citizens of Derry to be held captive by this wacky, selfish, possibly ill, yet allegedly criminal, albeit crafty, individual?  Will his refusal to surrender and go quietly reflect on his sentence and his inability to hold future jobs of similar import?  Will Mr. John Anderson, if convicted, become a registered sex offender?  These questions still remain unanswered as time passes inexorably by and a horrific winter, the likes of which stopped the Germans at the Gates of Moscow, as predicted by no less than The Farmer's Almanac, approaches.

What must be done with the councilors remaining on the board, Messrs. Brad Benson and Neil W. Wetherbee, and the highly touted town attorney, Mr. Ed Boutin, Esq., who supposedly constructed this contract so poorly written, so shabbily put together, so abominably riddled with holes large enough to allow a B-52 to taxi through it without singing an edge, which may allow John Anderson to return to his position as Town Administrator?  While there is a clause for dismissal for a felony, there appears to be no clause for dismissal for cause should the administrator commit a misdemeanor, or two, like indecent exposure and lewdness?  Alan Dershowitz would have fun in court ripping these jamokes to pieces.  No clauses for misdemeanor criminal acts?  If this is true, Boutin should be immediately relieved of his duties, to wit "helping" the Town of Derry.

How low can you go?

Darryl W Perry - A Presidential Pardon for Bradley Manning 

On August 21, Judge Col. Denise Lind sentenced Pfc. Bradley Manning to 35 years in military prison (minus 1294 days for pre-trial confinement). Three hours after Manning's sentence was announced, attorney David Coombs said the appeals process will begin in a matter of days. Coombs said, “I will file a request... that the president pardon Pfc. Manning, or at the very least commute his sentence to time served.”

Coombs said, the request includes a statement from Manning himself, “I understand that my actions violated the law. I regret that my actions hurt or harmed the US. It was never my intent to hurt anyone. I only wanted to help people.”

The truth is Manning's actions caused no actual harm to any of the American troops overseas. The only harm was to the egos of those who want to control other people.

Col. Morris Davis tweeted that “Manning [will] likely serve about 8 to 8.5 yrs more in confinement.” That means Manning will serve nearly 10 years longer in military prison than the people who commited the war-crimes that he exposed. As of yet, the apache gunner who appeared in the ‘Collateral Murder’ video has never faced criminal charges. Those who slaughtered civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan have never faced criminal charges. Those who ordered the troops into combat have never faced criminal charges.

Bradley Manning is a whistleblower who exposed war-crimes, and for his good deed he is being confined to military prison for at least the next 8 years of his life. I am proud to be among the 4,114 who signed the petition to serve part of Bradley Manning's sentence, and ask Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan to either allow each of the people who signed the petition to serve 3.1 days in custody so that Bradley Manning may go free or that the Maj. Gen. Commute Manning's sentence upon review. Regardless the action by Maj. Gen. Buchanan, I formally request that President Barack Obama grant a full pardon to Pfc. Bradley Manning.
 
In Peace, Love & Liberty,

Anonymous - Derry government pulls the plug

As Derry's foundering ship of state lurches even closer to the drain, it appears that the powers that be have finally pulled the proverbial plug on Mr. John Anderson, now a notorious lamster, and once the upright town administrator, who formerly, if we are to understand the statements he made to the NH State Troopers with some credulity, ran a nudist home or house or some such palaver.

Ayuh, the town council, in this year whatever of the longest recession anyone can remember, in a nation horribly beset by the dreadfully redolent emanations arising from Obamacare, have finally agreed to stop paying Mr. John Anderson his exorbitant salary for hiding from the state police while giving the long suffering citizens a bit of a break.  Now whether or not his payments in lieu of no work will continue whence he reappears and surrenders to the authorities remain unclear because the council met on the evening of 20 August in a "secret" plenary session to discuss personnel matters, namely his.  Perhaps Mr. Neil W. Wetherbee, Anderson's chief cheerleader and the councilor who threw caution to wind and voted for the town to take over his own private road, which improved his property values, with nary a thought given to conflict of interest, can agree to inform us on John's own "secret" schedule.

Somewhere out there in the increasingly cool wild blue, in the woods, in an obliging attorney's office, perhaps shopping at JC Penny's in Manchester, or possibly in Cabo San Luca, Mexico, Mr. Anderson, as far as can be ascertained, remains at large, so far dodging the arrest warrant issued for him in the Rockingham County Court on 16 August of this year.  This has been a year increasingly filled with bad public relations for the town, which always seems to be pulling it's perceived dirty laundry back from the columnists in far off Portland, OR, from the papers in South Carolina, the news hounds at Fox 25 in Boston, and TV and radio in Dallas, TX, in a nick of time with the fateful good news that DPW thief has finally been brought to heel just like the hot dog man before him.  

How long will Mr. Anderson's wacky karma plague the town, handicap it's PR, further erode Derry's ability to attract really big business, and reduce the chances for that IBM home office kind of enormous business caper which every business development guy given tons and tons of dough by Derry fails to bring in?  You remember the one which is always just around the corner and he can bag that elephant with just a few more lunches at The Yard, a bit more liquor money, and if he can bring in John P. "Jack" Dowd and his old DEDC pals as the closers they'll sign?  These mega-deals, with everybody getting well, are always lurking just out of reach in Derry.  No, only time will tell.  But these ongoing naughty bits of negative PR plague Derry on a regular schedule, like the curses of God plagued the Pharaohs and seem to only set the old dusty place back a step or two for every halting step forward.

Some sort of a weird immense level of stress seems to have built up in John Anderson's life before an unknown final "stressor" set him off on that fateful Friday when everything went to hell at his home and this whole sorry saga began to unfold.  Stressors, according to Robert Ressler, a former criminal profiler for the FBI and a leading authority on societal vices, are events which trigger an individual into a specific series of unwarranted behaviors and could possibly be: marital turmoil, conflicts with women, parental conflict, severe financial stress, conflicts with other males, the birth of a child, a serious physical injury and its aftermath, legal troubles, and stress from the death of someone close, either sudden or expected.

But in the long run it doesn't matter much.  The council at long last has apparently pulled the plug and the curtain on another sad human saga that has yet to play out. And who can say where this thorny trail will end.
