Commuter nightmare

The good folks selling the casino at Rockingham Park are telling us they had approximately 1.9 million people pass through their doors in one of their Pennsylvania casinos and a Salem casino can do the same. Oh, joy! That could mean 3,000 to 5,000 additional cars and buses on I-93 twice a day. Really looking forward to that commute — NOT! Solution? At the expense of the casino, cut the Rockingham Park access from I-93 so the 3,000 to 5,000 extra vehicles have to travel up Route 28. The Route 213 traffic circle in Methuen will be a total delight. Just think what that can do for all the other Salem businesses!

Trust Holder?

The darling of the liberal media in his second term as president of the United States is showing his administration’s true colors on corruption. The latest outrage is over the IRS targeting conservative groups. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is stepping up to the plate and will do a thorough and complete investigation. We are still reeling from the Benghazi cover-up and we don’t know the truth yet. Look at Holder’s investigation of his agency on the gunrunning scandal known as “Fast and Furious.” How about the Black Panthers flap and investigation over their activities at polling places? No charges were ever filed by DOJ in that case.

Where’s Miller?

So Steven Miller, the acting head of the IRS, has resigned. Now we need to find out where he was moved to within the government so that he can continue as an inadequate bureaucrat and get in line for his pension. Do these people really think we don’t know how they operate, and that no one is ever fired from Big Government? Why should we believe any of them when we consider the past history of these people?
