    Who knew Maine had so many rich Democrats?

    Who knew that Maine has 100 Democrats who are willing to pony up $30,000 to rub elbows with Barack Obama at his Maine fundraiser. And who knew that 800 Maine Democrats are willing to pay anywhere from $100 to $10,000 to be in the same ballroom as Obama that same day. And people talk about […]

    Republicans want to prod Obama into Iranian war

    Once again, rabid politicians and media pundits spew a steady stream of propaganda designed to con Americans into supporting yet another needless war. The idea that Iran would ever attack either Israel or the United States with nuclear weapons is nonsense. Iran knows it would be destroyed in retaliation. Any pre-emptive attack on Iran by […]

    More production doesn’t need to increase pollution

    No matter how you spin it, it’s not a good thing that Maine’s pulp and paper mills are spewing more toxic chemicals into our air, water and land. The Feb. 25 article, “Some Label Toxin Spike as Positive” missed the mark on the federal government’s Toxic Release Inventory and what it means for Maine. Maine […]

    No Parking lane not for quick trip inside store

    I’ve been wondering about the intelligence of drivers these days. When we first study to get our license, we learn to read signs that direct us, to use caution, to stop us and tell us not park somewhere. Oh, yes, that dreaded “No Parking” area. It’s painted in yellow on the asphalt with diagonal lines […]

    Parents are our best teachers, role models

    Throughout our lives, we realize that the knowledge we need to survive comes from the people around us. The way people eat, sleep, talk and walk all influence us. If we see or hear something that we like, we copy it. As a child, I remember always doing what my parents did; I idolized them, […]

    Fines for abuse of power would close budget gap

    To close the budget gap in a hurry, let’s start with the bunch in Augusta. For each abuse of power, unethical act, violation of their oath of office — to serve the best interest and welfare of citizens of their district, of the state — the guilty must pay a significant fine, $25,000, to be […]

    Pillars that sustained nation compromised away

    The headline reads: “Snowe Laments the Death of Compromise.” Not true. There isn’t anything left to compromise on. The lesson that Sen. Olympia Snowe never learned was that she compromised and moderated until she was a leftist herself. She never got any long-term quid pro quo. The progressive left in the last 50 years, 33 […]

    Maine’s ‘higher standards’ discourage professionals

    I am an out-of-stater looking to move back to Maine, where my wife is from, to start our family. It really is a beautiful state, and I like it. Maine, however, is not very business friendly, and I have encountered setback after setback. I am a licensed counselor in another state, certified at the national […]

    Hidden reason for governor to shun Obama?

    Our governor recently attended the National Governors Convention in Washington, D.C. This convention ended with a luncheon put on at the White House by President Barack Obama. All the governors were invited to this luncheon, but our governor chose not to attend. Considering his decision last year to not attend a Martin Luther King Day […]
