  1. It still has a way to go, but is definitely catching up. Mainecat, the price you are paying in NH at the very minute is $23.62. Wind and solar are definitely changing the market.
  2. I believe most are fairly compensated. Of course there are exceptions and the starting wage could be higher. My wife works in the school system as a school nurse, and the main attraction was the schedule for a working mother. She could make more elsewhere but gets incredible amounts of time off. I would be all for paying teachers much more if they had much less time off. Other duties could be done during that time which could reduce the amount of administration and support positions.
  3. A complete non-story that reeled some of you in. Have you ever been on a ship at sea and rerouted because the price of the commodity changed? I have, on tankers, waiting for the price of gas or heating oil to change.
  4. Politicians on both side are mostly dirt bags. Nothing new here. The problem is your unwavering support of the Democrat dirt bags and being against, either good or bad, from the republican dirt bags. Hypocrisy at its finest.
  5. Would you guys be OK if your employers read what you wrote in this forum and fired you due to a violation of their code of conduct? I do know that I have to acknowledge a code of conduct annually.
  6. Do you count on your mortgage deduction at tax time? If your loan or loans are more than $500,000, you won't be able to deduct the interest from your federal income taxes under the proposed Republican House bill unveiled today, which cuts the current deduction cap from $1 million. What's more, the reduction would be effective starting today, if the bill passes and is signed into law, according to the Wall Street Journal. Yes, that means Nov. 2, 2017. The legislation would also eliminate the second home deduction, meaning you'd only be able to deduct interest on your primary home. It also wouldn't apply to refinancings over $500,000, the Journal reported. It certainly doesn't affect the average low and middle class Americans. Those it will hurt are the people living in high cost areas.

    Found this....

    Very cool! I had a 73 340 free air as my sled.
  8. Good. Time for new members with fresh ideas.....
  9. So instead of putting economic pressure on NK through sanctions on them and those that aid them, what do you propose? You have made it clear you are against military threats as a tool. Please explain.


    You obviously have not spent time on a ship and are parroting some bullshit you read.

    Let's have a rally!

  12. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAINECAT......................

    Not here in Maine. My BIL is a salaried MDOT supervisor. All those below him are hourly. He takes all of his summer OT comp time and goes to Florida for 6 weeks each winter.
