You got that right! I wish this state would try something different. You would think thirty years of failed liberal policies would make people look elsewhere for solutions instead of constantly trying to shovel mud against the tide.

I agree.

As we are producing more and more of our own food each year, we are buying less and less. So as you suggest, a household can have much more control over their spending, than they can over property tax.

I know there are some hand wringers out there who hate guns....that's ok the rest of us have you covered......you're welcome.

drugs are a very big issue in Maine especially Meth. What contributes to the lack of crime is people are not desperate to simply live, unlike places like Mississippi and Lousianna, and the Maine takes care of it's citizens.

Mississippi has lax gun laws but high crime so can you explain the disparity?

Ha we have eight years of Boy Wonder look where this country is now.

Marx was about business owners exploiting the workers not about a free ride.

Karl Marx was just a disgruntled German citizen!

Bush will look like a rocket scientist when the next crew hits the ground running!

After 8 years of Baldarchie, we're gonna need a good spring cleaning in Disgusta!

No, Karl Marx was a philosopher.

W. has been a disaster for this country, unlike Clinton who reduced the deficit, Boy Wonder has increased the deficit. Unemployment is higher than when Clinton was in office, what else a lousy economy, anything else about Boy Wonder the "rocket scientist"?

To keep this topic on a Maine track, Baldacci economy...take from the wagon pullers and give it to the ones riding in the wagon!!!

Clinton rode the INTERNET ECONOMY all the way through IMPEACHMENT for LYING UNDER OATH!

The 90's economy was origami, built on paper.

Bush went out to meet the enemies of this country! Clinton refused Bin Laden when offered!

If Marx was a philosopher, then Mao must be a Dali Llama.

All the Democratically controlled Congress has to do is refuse to fund the President. Why have your Representatives not done this?
