S D Clark, Don't even bother with the inpatient on this board. His problems are many and deep. It'sRead More been advised to ignore his posts as if they aren't even there.

I think I like this Havenstein guy just cause he pisses off the libs.

You can believe the Mayor of New York will use this footage to help his case to get rid of ALL horseRead More drawn carriages in New York he promised he would do.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

looked at the chart on the linked-to webpage. It shows a clear trendline for a warming planetRead More (extrapolated from national averages), starting at about 1960. ________________________________________________________ It's immediately apparent after even a brief visual inspection of the graph. Beginning around 1960-1970, the spikes in outlier years are higher and more frequent on the hot side of the mean and those for the cold side of it are less frequent and not as cold.

Who was responsible for the warm up after the last ice age? Us humans weren't here. As a matter ofRead More fact, who was responsible for the cool down that resulted in the last ice age?
Stephen D. Clark April 17, 2014 at 06:49 am
Concentrations of greenhouse gasses in tiny air bubbles trapped in glacial ice found up in GreenlandRead More show that levels of carbon dioxide concentrations correlate with prehistorical climate changes. For energy to burn, we are digging and drilling up vast amounts of carbon trapped in the earth's crust and vaporizing it into the atmosphere as CO2. It will have to have an effect. It's like keeping an aquarium full of fish that pollute their own water faster than it can be refreshed. There is plenty of evidence to show that billions of people burning carbon all over the world already is having an effect similar to keeping too many fish in a small aquarium.

Natick news - Nebraska news -- well at least they both start with the letter N. I said this before IRead More think everyone should not open any article on their local Patch unless they see the name of their community in it. They are trying to trick up with news. We see a headline and think - in my case - Natick - and it is not. NO NAME - NO CLICK! I think if the click rate goes down for Patch, it will hurt them advertising wise and then maybe they will listen to us that we want LOCAL NEWS! Who wants to join me in my NO NAME No CLICK campaign?

Thanks Julie for the support of recognizing the need to have our youth as well as adults view theRead More reality of this epidemic...pain. This month is recognized nationally as child abuse prevention month. Statisitcs show that 1 in 4 girls, and 1 in 6 boys are infact victims before the age of 12. Children become adults, look around you at a football stadium for example; count to either 4 or 6, place a red shirt on each you have numbered- all have been victims, AMAZING huh? Now look around your immediate everyday life, count; this is BIG. Unfortunately, this pain is managed in different ways; addiction shows itself in many ways. Regardless of whether it may be illicit or not, the affects are or do become a society issue. Locally, prevention & action is a start. In regards to policy; which is the rule of law mentioned here- must include application of The ACE Study in educating our judicial (law) system, in an effort to encourage long term implementation of program development (and application), that addresses the cause and accountability of the real perpetrators of an offenders' pain that leads to such unfortunate outcomes. The ACE study actually shows how vulnerable our children (innocent before victimization) are. The cycle of generational acceptance of such behavoirs must be stopped as well.

Some of todays addicts have Parents that are addicts as well and it's a snowball effect whereRead More generation after generation continue the cycle. Just like WELFARE where the parents raise their children while on Public Assistance and the kids just continue this behavior generation after generation.

strange how we respond just as the terrorists desire us to. the media commemorates each incident asRead More if it were a new profit center to mine for every last click. whole populations now sit in fear of another 'something' about to happen, never again, fully safe like we were in the good old days of the cold war? once these bstrds hit us deep inside our own turf we have not become stronger, but rather 'hardened', emboldened in our delusions of ultimate superiority, no longer safe on our 'island of north america'. each of these events changes us all even imperceptably, forcing us to accept their motives, their ideals, their imam imposed concept of living. we act in unison, determined to show them we are not affected, yet that very demonstration reveals our inner need to respond, to re-affirm our own injury, each of those crowd-felt sympathies we all cling to, even if for the brief moment of our 'crowd'. be strong, and further, be alert, be conspicuous in manner in which you care for each other. shy not away from those who seek your death, but do not embrace them, as they fein no challenge to seek close to your demise.

The police in Boston are terribly stupid. They are dumber than most cops and that would make themRead More total morons. And for all you idiots that are going to respond about how much you respect cops because 'not all are bad' or how their job is so hard, really, really? Please think about what you're saying.
jpf2361 April 15, 2014 at 01:27 pm
These numbers you are quoting are SKEWED. The NH Department Of Employment Security has NO WAY ofRead More tracking the people that exhausted their unemployment benefits. Which makes them drop off the rolls of the unemployed. I know of several people that fall under this category. Maybe you can dig a little deeper @Dan Tuohy when you are posting an article on the NEWS portion of Patch. Unless you have an ULTERIOR MOTIVE of being a lapdog to to Maggie "Tax & Spend" Hassan that is the most INEPT Governor in NH's history.
jpf2361 April 15, 2014 at 01:42 pm
What has Maggie "Tax & Spend" Hassan done with regard to job creation to qualify herRead More to make the follow statement?? "Gov. Maggie Hassan (D-Exeter) said the data shows good progress. In a statement, she said: "Today’s announcement that participation in the labor force continued to increase while New Hampshire’s unemployment rate dropped to 4.5 percent in March, more than two points below the national average, is another encouraging sign that our economy is continuing to strengthen, allowing businesses to grow and create jobs. To keep our economy moving forward, we must remain committed to addressing our challenges by working together on bipartisan solutions in order to strengthen the middle class, support job-creating businesses and encourage innovative economic growth that will allow all of our people to share in our success and prosperity." **************************************************How does RAISING THE GAS TAX qualify as JOB CREATION. How does raiding the existing supposed DEDICATED GAS TAX MONIES qualify as creating jobs? How does Maggie raiding the Rainy Day fund qualify as creating jobs? Raising Taxes and raiding funds has the reverse effect. It stifles jobs creation and forces layoffs as it increases the cost of doing business in NH for many NH Businesses. @Dan Tuohy Why don't you write an article that TELLS WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON IN NH FOR A CHANGE??? Instead of Kissing Maggie Hassan's INEPT butt!!!!!
jpf2361 April 15, 2014 at 02:13 pm
Maggie TAX & SPEND Hassan is the most INEPT Governor NH has ever had in it's History!!! How doesRead More the expansion of Medicaid to 80,000 people secure the Miiddle Class here in NH? Especially once the Feds stop paying for this program. This FOOLISH program will lead to a a SALES TAX OR INCOME TAX OR BOTH and once the Fed's stop paying 100% for this program the CRAP WILL HIT THE FAN. Mark my Words!! NH is in for a RUDE AWAKENING once this happens, we will have LOST OUR TAX ADVANTAGE and you will see NH Companies leaving in Droves for a better deal from another State that will be happy to give them tax breaks to employ their citizens.
