See what I mean? That makes sense to you?

At the risk of arousing someone's wrath, and given that no one here has stated what the argument is Read Moreabout, I'll give it a try. The bill regarding selling drugs near a school, which carries additional penalties than just selling drugs, reduces the distance from a school that would invoke the added punishment. The argument for this is that since schools are much closer together in cities, the likelihood that a seller will incur these additional penalties is greater than if the sale took place in the suburbs where schools are farther apart. The fact that most of this urban drug dealing is done by minorities makes it more likely that there will be a racial disparity in punishment between minority drug dealers in cities and their white counterparts in the 'burbs. The knock-out game law penalties would result in the same kind of racial disparity in that the majority of kids engaging in this specific kind of assault are minority kids cold-cocking unsuspecting white people. The "truth" that Richard and Pete are talking about (I think) is that James Albis is that failing to pass the enhanced knock-out penalty fails to recognize the "hate crime" element of the game, where as if this was a white on black crime, there would be no argument as to the racial nature of the assault. Further, simply reducing the selling circle around a school in the city to reduce level of punishment for minority drug dealers does nothing to reduce the sale of drugs- it just reduces the penalty thereby ENCOURAGING the sale closer to schools. Does this make sense?

Equal pay for equal work does not mean that each person will always be making the exact same dollar Read Moreamount for the same job. There are many other factors that will change that. The pay scale should, however, be the same regardless of gender. I have worked in jobs where it was common knowledge that a woman starting with the same education, experience, etc. was offered considerably less than her male counterpart. That is wrong, no ifs, ands or buts! This kind of distortion of facts is what makes it too frustrating to try to have a discussion here.

Interesting! I did a three part story on this subject. Very interesting back & forthRead Morecommentar y. But as to the paving of the RSA's and borrowing $450,000 something doesn't add up. According to their own meeting minutes (Airport Authority) I found the cost of such was put on the record. They, again according to the minutes, need $400,000 plus dollars to first do an environmental study and after that they need 5.8 million to do what-ever is then required. This money was hopefully to come from the Government in the form of a Congressional earmark(aka Rosa and Blummie). Don't be fooled folks. As for Looney and the rest of the democrats surrounding NH politics they will never say no to this plan. Maybe paving will allow travel to better places then Philly, and who in Gods name would want to go to Detroit. Get me to Fla non-stop and we will talk. Good luck to the people living on the shoreline.

Interesting! For some reason this DBCooper seems that finding out who CAjones is, is of suchRead Moreimpor tance but he himself or maybe even its a herself, isn't using a real name. Who cares? So what if this commentator is related to or a friend of someone in the administration, will life as we known it change? No! All garbage.

Good morning Bob. You posted this on a conversation you had with someone "unstable". Read MoreWhy didn't you research what you were told, dig a little deeper, check with P&Z, etc...? Then write a complete article with substance. I did check the posted minutes of recent P&Z meetings for you and nothing mentioned.

People bitch there's no help for people; but when someone tries to do something to help it starts a Read Morerumor mill pissing match. Ever stop to think how many vets or average Joes got hooked due to shitty doctors? People seeking treatment or life in sober houses are actually trying to fix their problems and better themselves?
