Come January.

 

So I’ve been running all night. Right now I’m in southern Virginia near the site of the Appomattox Court House and the site of the Confederate capitulation to General Ulysses S. Grant and the Union Army bringing the Civil War to a close. Though I don’t think the south has ever accepted the yoke brought onto it by individuals from states like New Hampshire.

History marches on.

The New Hampshire Legislature has announced its leadership team and apparently the formation of a business based caucus with the broad goal of making New Hampshire more business friendly or whatever that means. I’m sure the press releases mean very well but whether there is any real substance to the upcoming legislative session and the formation of new interest groups like business remains to be seen. But I don’t think it’s looking very good.

I came south last night down through Ohio and West Virginia; there seems to be a lot happening in terms of road construction and the busy coal barge shipments on the Ohio River and the various industries that are in this area of the country. With this in mind I think it’s hard to look at any type of prosperity and then see what is wrong with New Hampshire I’m now wondering if the legislature sees any type of message in the last election or will simply be a session of cutting, dicing and endless press releases about what is going to happen not what will happen.

Some quotes:

“Politics is the only way I know to change the world.” – Governor Madeline Kunin.

I was going to put in a quote here, but after reading it decided that it wasn't going to fit in what I'm arguing on this blog so it was removed. I'll put in on a later post. It will be something like Reeperbahn Girls.

It should be an interesting legislative session in New Hampshire.
