Re:Hell's Angels hold world-wide meeting in..... New Hampshire!

The world's most well-known motorcycle club holds a yearly meeting for all of it's chapters. It occured last weekend in Laconia, New Hampshire.... The police were NOT interested in any confrontation, and the meeting went off almost without a hitch.

LACONIA — Police were reporting no problems yesterday related to an international gathering of the Hells Angels in the city.

State Police Capt. Ray Burke said there was a large number of members arriving and traveling around the city for the organization’s annual World Run.

An estimated 1,500 members from across the world was expected to attend. On its Web site, the Hells Angels had photographs of “brothers” sporting their leathers in New Hampshire from Holland, Belgium and across the country, but very little information about the event itself.

“A majority are going to Filmore Avenue” where the New Hampshire chapter of the Hells Angels owns a house and property at the end of the Weirs Beach road, Burke said.

Thought you'd all get a chuckle out of this article about the man who may very well be the first governor of the free state.....

Benson acknowledges he's a loose cannon, and proud of it
9/13/2003

DOVER, N.H. -- Gov. Craig Benson acknowledges he's a "loose cannon"
at the Statehouse, but says it helps make him effective.


That was one of the more polite things Benson was called, even by
members of his own party, during the state budget stalemate.

He told editors at Foster's Daily Democrat on Friday that a friend
recently described him as a "loose cannon."

"I am a loose cannon," he said. "And to the extent that I lose the
reputation as somebody who's a loose cannon, then I'll lose my
effectiveness."

Benson said he's working to improve his relationship among
legislative leaders following the contentious budget battle. During
the debate, one top Republican called Benson a dictator. Another said
he had chosen to create chaos.

"I think the governor and the Legislature are getting along much
better," said Benson. "We're not going to agree on everything, but if
we can at least be conversational, at least if we can hear each other
out, then we have a good chance of moving things along."

At the same time, he said his priority is not to make friends.

"I don't have to be loved, you don't even have to like me if you
don't want," he said. "It doesn't matter. I came here to get a job
done."

Senate President Tom Eaton told the paper he's willing to move on.

"With the executive branch, we've had some differences and we're
going to look forward not backward," he said.

Eaton said the governor's background as a business executive may have
contributed to communication problems.

"A lot of that is (Benson) coming from private practice to the
Legislature," Eaton said. "You ask the Legislature to jump and they
don't say, How high?"

In the past week, Benson introduced several education proposals,
including a constitutional amendment to give the Legislature
exclusive control of education funding. He hopes to include the
proposal on the November 2004 ballot.

Eaton said he hadn't seen the proposal, and didn't hear about it
until the governor announced it at a news conference Wednesday. He
said the two had a private conversation about the proposal afterward,
but would not describe the discussion.

"What we're working for is better communication," he said. "I'm
trying to keep it upbeat. It's a two-way street and we're both
working on it."

Benson said he would soon introduce measures dealing with health care
and economic growth in the North Country. The governor spoke
generally about the proposals, but said any funding for the plans
would be gathered from private sources.

A "Loose Cannon," can be a real asset, especially when he is setting in the governors chair.

Hmm....Governor Porcupine Benson, I like the sound of that! ;D

This is a double-blessing.  Once we start electing fusion Libertarians he'll have a constituency in the Legislature, and then we can really get to work.  In theory we could win as many as 30 seats using the LPNH fusion strategy.

A chain reaction my friend.  One that will extend outside the state once our caucus starts to make news.  This is why I endorse running Libertarian-Republican fusion candidates at least until the Libertarian stigma is gone.

In theory we could win as many as 30 seats using the LPNH fusion strategy.

And once that caucus is in place, independent voters (who outnumber both Republicans and Democrats in NH) will start to feel like a vote for a libertarian is not a wasted vote, making it easier to elect larger numbers of libertarians to all kinds of offices in the state.

Even more bad New Hampshire news

The Courts in NH are just plain nuts.  There make terrible order after terrible order.

Now it gets worse.  So many things seem to spread in New England

"MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) -- Alexander Duran was delighted when his daughter earned admission to two of New England's top private colleges. He was furious when a judge ordered him to help pay tuition at the school offering far less financial aid.

A married parent would never be subjected to such an order. But New Hampshire, where both Duran and his ex-wife live, is one of a growing minority of states allowing courts to force divorced parents to pay for their children's college costs. "

Maybe we can get this guy to supports us.

And further down in the article it says:

Quote
Last year, Connecticut -- through a law passed by the Legislature -- became the 17th state to allow such court orders, according to family law specialist Laura Morgan of Charlottesville, Virginia.

This year, due partly to impassioned lobbying by divorced, noncustodial fathers like Duran, New Hampshire lawmakers took a step in the opposite direction. The House of Representatives voted to prohibit courts from ordering a divorced parent to pay college expenses of a child 18 or older; the bill is expected to be considered by the state Senate next year.


So while the courts are doing what courts do (legislating from the bench), the legislature is doing what Porcupines would want it to do.

We should absolutely get this guy to work with us, and we should scour the news to look for other people victimized by "the system".  These people are looking for help right now, and we offer the solution.  We get a high-profile member, and we get the publicity of that person pushing us in the mainstream media.  It's a good idea to go after this guy.

Any father who doesn't pay to send his kids to college is a chump. A married parent wouldn't be so selfish as to refuse to send the kid to the college they want to attend, so long as they can afford it.

If the father signed a divorce decree that just specified that he would pay for their educational costs, then legally the kids can make him pay all the way through getting a doctorate, more than one if that's what they want. It's a contract. Libertarians believe in strict compliance with contract law. ARE YOU A LIBERTARIAN?

I've seen a number of these cases, and in every case the guy is a rich prick who traded his wife in for his secretary, can afford to send his kids to Harvard full boat, but is too much of a cheap and cheating bastard to fulfill the terms of his divorce decree. He'd rather spend his money on his mid-life crisis with a Mercedes than fulfill his zygotic obligations.

Men who get specified the limits of education they can be required to pay for never have these difficulties.

Does this mean that Wyoming is full of deadbeat dads???? ;)

Actually, it might be construed to be elitism, bourgois snobbery, or some such, but I find your comment curious in light of a later one....

So your idea of freedom is the right to be free of fulfilling your contractual obligations? Are you for deadbeat dads?

Now THIS is classism, of the proletarian kind, yes. What I find interesting is that you think I'm a snob up above, and a prole right here. Just which is it???

You are a WY supporter, and you claim that NH's support of contract law is bad, so I am making a logical conclusion that WY doesn't support contract law, so therefore it must be full of contract jumpers, dead beats, etc....

I just got a good chuckle out of a statement I gleaned while reading some early American history, about the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.  It is especially funny in light of all of the claims by New Hampshire supporters about how the NH state government always tries to run on a shoestring budget:


"New Hampshire's delegation arrived more than two months late because the state had not provided them travel money."

It continues, even today. The NH statehouse has three buttons for each seat, yes, no and quorum. But only the yes and no buttons work, because NH refused to buy the software for the quorum button. :D
