I just saw the article about Methuen enforcing crosswalk violations. It’s too bad that Haverhill doesn’t do the same thing. I saw a person almost get hit in a crosswalk and there was a Haverhill cruiser on the side of the road. I don’t know what the officer was doing — maybe drinking coffee — because he didn’t do anything. When I reported almost getting hit I was told that the police could not do anything because they have to see it to do anything. In that case, we need 5,000 police officers to watch all the crosswalks in the city, including shopping centers. Now what I do is push a cart and if they almost hit me I hit them with the cart first.
We should vote out all Republicans in New Hampshire. The Republicans have been saying for years they will shutdown the government. Kelly Ayotte was suppose to be an “independent thinker.” Yet, she blindly follows the extremist tea party. I am out of a job today. Will Ayotte pay my mortgage? She is still getting paid.
This government shutdown is great! Look at all the money we’re saving by having all those useless civil servants who are spying on us, abusing the IRS, upping the insurance on homes that aren’t in the flood plain, and running guns to Mexico stay home. Maybe they’ll be home long enough for us to save enough money to reduce the deficit so our grandchildren won’t be stuck paying for the liberal Democrats’ misguided social programs. Way to go, Congress!
The Republicans don’t get to shut down the government because they are unhappy with the results of democracy — especially when they’ve been napping through the whole democratic process. Either wake up and meet your job requirements, or get out. The government shutdown is akin to that one bratty child we all knew growing up who flips over the table when he’s losing at Scrabble, ruining the game for everyone. How are these people still getting paid?
The 10th Amendment of the Constitution limits the powers of the federal government to those delegated by the Constitution. Nowhere does the executive branch have the power to pick and choose which laws to be enforced or change how any portion of a law will be enacted. But for Emperor Obama he just pulls out his magical pen and gives waivers to any one who has been a major contributor to his campaign. Just look at the waivers to Obamacare that have been given to large corporations and the unions.
I personally think Councilor Sean Fountain is doing an awesome job. He shoots from the hip and is trying and doing a great job for the city of Methuen. Please vote for Sean.
What a laugh. Everyone is trying to decide where to have a casino. Hey folks, this is not the 1950s when things were plentiful. Have you people looked around? We still have a lot unemployed and some have quit looking for work. Our manufacturing has gone to foreign countries and we have well over 300 million people here. Where in heck do they think the money is going to come from to gamble if people are not working? Las Vegas and Foxwoods are already feeling business slow down. What makes anyone think it will flourish here?
