voter restriction

The Brunswick times record had an editorial about voter restriction being done by the republican party and how successful they have been. Every democrat and independent should read this article and pass it on. It also tells how in every race they have taken the least votes of the two major parties. to me this is why they are the minority because they lately have been the party of deceit! How can you declare what a great patriot you are while trying to keep fellow Americans from voting so you can steal an election? just how un-american can they get and not be exposed? I think it's time to show them for what they have become,not what they once were!

the real republican for vets =cuts in benefits

Joe -

Mitch McConnell doesn't get it.

In the United States of America, the commitment to care for the men and women who put on our nation's uniform shouldn't stop once they return home from the wars they were sent to fight.

This isn't a new promise made to our troops -- some of our first colonial laws dealt with the care of wounded veterans.

That's why it was so jarring to watch Mitch McConnell lead his colleagues in the Senate during a filibuster of legislation to improve veterans health care and tuition benefits ... all over his desire to push our country to the brink of yet another war, this time with Iran.

Mitch McConnell has been on a desperate crusade to appeal to dissatisfied Tea Partiers in Washington D.C., but Kentuckians back home would be appalled by his actions.
McConnell's leadership against improving veterans benefits could end up being his kryptonite.

Kentucky has over 330,000 veterans who live in the state, tens of thousands of them who receive pension payments, tuition assistance, or health care.

McConnell's vote is a slap in the face to all of them.

Thanks for standing with us,

a little humor to lighten the load

crates and suitcases.

On the second day, he had the movers come and collect his things.

Description: Description:
On the third day, he sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room
Table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a
Pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water.

Description: Description:
When he had finished, he went into each and every room and deposited a few
Half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods.

Description: Descriptionescription: Description:
He then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When his ex returned with her new partner, all was bliss for the first few days.

Then slowly, the house began to smell.
They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out.

Description: Description:
Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned.

Description: Description:
Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off
Gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end
They even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked !!

Description: Description:
People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house.
The maid quit.

Description: Description:
Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.
A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find
A buyer for their stinky house. Word got out and eventually even the local
Realtors refused to return their calls.

Description: Description:
Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase
A new place.

Description: Description:
The ex called and asked her how things were going.

Description: Description:
She told him the saga of the rotting house.
He listened politely and said that he missed his old home terribly and
Asked if they would be willing to reduce their divorce settlement in
Exchange for getting the house.

Description: Description:
Knowing he had no idea how bad the smell was, they agreed on a price that
Was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if he were to
Sign the papers that very day.

Description: Description:
He agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

Description: Description:
A week later the ex and her partner stood smiling as they watched the moving
Company pack everything to take to their new home.

I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU?

mal function junction

It seems that taking Maine workers hostage is getting to be the way of the right! Well I say that we all remember this when we cast our ballot and throw this sticky fingered group to the curb! It's time we brought this group to task! I'm sick of hearing these people who bitch about how the left spends and spends while they have family sucking us dry on welfare! It's fine for them to take advantage of these programs while spewing about others using the same program. Hell most of them either have gov. grants or loans for their business, kids in college with gov. loans or grants -you bet they know all the angles and use them! but they don't want you to!
So don't feel guilty to bring this up in conversation the next time you see them rant ! cuz they live in glass houses

I want to address those who think unions are bad


On the history channel they were talking about how much good the unions did for the coal miners.in the 30's and 40's even the early 50's unions were organizing to improve working conditions in the mines and other industrial companies. the safety hazards were many and if you got hurt you had no workman comp. Of course you know the owners of the mines supported the churches and the pastor preached about the evil union or he was replaced!

this could happen to you


I just got time to read Jan 30 Bridgton paper; this is one of Maine's best small town papers which publishes both sides of the aisle although with new ownership it may list a little more to the right. what prompted me to put this in was the vote to refund the 40 million with enough votes to override the extremists right wing group propped up by outside influence~the article is written by "Mike Corrigan" and the title is Doctor, I have this pain, right about Texas! here's a few excerpts that the heritage group and our Gov. are definitely unaware of: We pay more per capita($8508) on healthcare than any other of the 36 nations used to establish cost yea we're #1 suckers ! our life span is 78; france pays ($4118) their life expectancy is 82 years
I'M NOT GOING INTO IT ALL BUT THE MOST EFFICENT HEALTHCARE DELIVERY SYSTEM IN THE WORLD IS AMONG PUBLIC HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS IS(MEDICARE ,MEDICAID)(WE ALSO BOAST THE ONLY POLITCIAL PARTY IN THE WESTERN WORLD ON RECORD ON RECORD AGAINST NATIONAL HEALTHCARE: THOSE EFFICENCY EXPERTS, THE REPUBLICANS! GOD I HOPE THAT VOTE SENT A MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE OF MAINE! EVERY TIME YOU HEAR A RAND PAUL, A RICK PERRY OR A HERITAGE PUPPET SAY DIFFERENT QUOTE THIS CAUSE IT PASSED THE POLITCAL CHECK LIST!
THE OTHER THING THE MOST SUCCESFUL NATIONS HAVE THE LOWEST POVERTY -THEY DON'T CUT HEAD START-THE WICK PRORAM -WE RATE #2 FROM THE BOTTOM ! MEXICO IS #1 -WE HAVE 22,2% OF OUR CHILDREN LIVING IN POVERTY,MEXICO HAS 26.2% -FINLAND AND NORWAY IS 4.2% AND 3.9% AND THEIR SCHOOL GRADES EXCEL COMPARED TO OURS!
DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR CHECK THIS STUFF OUT-ALEC,HERITAGE,AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY NONE OF THESE GROUPS ARE FOR THE WORKER!

although this was written for a small town paper it seems to speak to all Americans! I live in a state where "alec" and the heritage group have greatly influenced our future! Our homeless have increased, we have a greater number of children living in poverty and the previous republican whip is now ceo of the heritage group here! don't let this happen to you!

If you check this out you will find it will pass the fact checker bit! so many lies seem to be allowed by the media-some folks just don't care how they earn their money! I believe one of our great newspaper chains was bought by a group that has been accused overseas of printing false facts and more than once!
