Thanks For The Leftovers!

If you’d like to read even more reasons why New Hampshire kicks Massachusetts’ ass, or if you just want to read about how boned a state can be when it’s run by decades by Democrats, go and read this whine in today’s Boston Globe. Especially the comments.


Basically, New Hampshire has this one guy who has a state car and expense account who goes down into Massachusetts and explains to businesses why they might want to get out of being screwed, blued, and tattooed by Massachusetts and come somewhere fairly close where they might be appreciated.


It all boils down to just one concept: enlightened self-interest. We know who has the power to drive an economic engine, and we know how to work with them so they and we benefit. And our “salesman” not only knows that, but he knows that New Hampshire will cheerfully work with businesses to make the transition. And by “New Hampshire,” I don’t mean just the state government. Government at all levels, along with businesses and individuals, are always ready and willing to help bring more folks here.


And if, in the process, Massachusetts gets boned, that’s just fine, too. They set up their own rules; if those rules end up pushing people out their door, we’ll be glad to open ours. And if that occasionally looks like showing people the door out of Massachusetts, saying “you don’t have to put up with that crap” — so be it.

    But Jay,  don’t you know that for the Democrats to create their Marxist utopia they must have other people’s money?  How dare you try to take that away from them.  Where do you think you are– in America or something?   That country is dead.  This is the Obamanation now where the government has the power to decide where someone sets up a business.

    Barry gets 4 more years, you can bet that ‘wealthy’ states will have to ‘share their wealth’ with the ‘poor’ states.  Said ‘poor’ states being the ones run by Democrats.

    Looking at the linked article, (and Jay, since dropping the Globe-democrat my life has improved)
    I note the taxes NH doesn’t have but Ma does have.
    In NH….

    no capital gains tax
    no inventory tax
    no personal income tax
    no sales tax
    no Internet tax

    And yes, the comments are revealing. Looks like more people in Ma are fed up than we are led to believe.
    Love NH, keep it right.

    What New Hampshire does, though, is sock the property tax through the roof -in somecases many times what Massachusetts hits folks for.

    The problem with this is that this tax kills the poor and the old retired folks as their tax burden is far dissproportionate to their limited income. Some sort of better balance is needed.

    Anyone familiar with the Mass/NH border, knows that all those liberals who can’t afford the socialist state that they created in Mass, have moved over the border into neighboring NH and are well into the process of repeating their socialist  destruction up there -demanding more and more “free” services from the state. Southeastern NH is but similar to a county of Massachusetts.
