I Am N.H. Senator Maggie Hassan’s ‘Top Fan’ On Facebook — And I Am Delighted.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. This was as of today. SMILE.


The GREAT Senator is no stranger to I.

The pictures demonstrate that she, a wonderful person, makes me very happy!

And yes, WE campaigned for her.


Of course I follow and support her on Facebook. Why wouldn’t I?

I think she is the cat’s whiskers. IF only we could have a few more senators like her as opposed to the gutless, shameless, spineless men who are in the Senate.

I am very proud of both of OUR New Hampshire Senators. I do not know Jeanne Shaheen as much as I know Senator Hassan. I have only met Senator Shaheen once and that was a long time ago. But, her office has helped us numerous times. For that I will always be grateful.

I saw Senator Hassan, when she was our Governor, at work, at the State House, quite often. She always impressed I. She is an exemplary mother and a wonderful human being.

I am proud and delighted to be Senator Maggie Hassan’s TOP Facebook FAN. It is an honor and privilege.

Somebody Broke Into The New Hampshire ‘State House’ In Concord?

Ahhh?

This UPSETS me, greatly, at multiple levels.

I am VERY FOND of OUR wonderful, HISTORIC State House. As a ‘Granite State Ambassador‘ (GSA) I have volunteered at the State House — and if the truth be told, I did have a hand in getting GSA volunteering there.

It is one of the FRIENDLIEST, most open Government facilities I have ever visited (and yes, I have visited the Pentagon to do a presentation for an Army General).

I also know, starting with our AMAZING Governor, Maggie Hassan, quite a few people who work, visit and volunteer there. I know that my friends in the “Visitor Center” will feel this violation at a very personal level.

Ironic that just last month they were talking about increasing security at the State House. See below. Two years ago, as a GSA, I attended a 2-hour discussion on this very same issue — though we never even touched upon break ins at night. 

That they did NOT have any infrared security detectors is inexcusable!

When I saw this on TV this morning my second thought, after thinking of how this will upset the folks who work there, was to think of all the irreplaceable, historic items we have at the State House. We even have some moon rock. That some objects were damaged upsets me, GREATLY.

This is NOT good. I am not happy.

hassasnfornhThis was said to have been the first fund raiser for the Governor as ‘Maggie Hassan for New Hampshire‘. I don’t want to divulge too much and as such will only say that it was held in the ‘Lakes’ and was attended by about 90 people. It was a very convivial and congenial with oodles of optimism and gunho. It was very uplifting. We were glad to have been invited. We are very fond of the Governor and was glad to help. Yes, she can count on our support.

The Governor looked a million dollars and I am hoping that she will raise many a million for her worthy campaign.

IF The ‘Free The Female Nipple’ New Hampshire Hampton Beach Event Backfires I Will Be Bummed!

IF as a result of the well intended “Free the Female Nipple” movement emancipation event planned for Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, new laws are enacted to restrict toplessness in N.H. it would be a crying shame.

That is my fear now. We could see a vicious backlash. Today, other than in Laconia with its City-specific ordinance, toplessness is not against the law — as befits the “Live Free, Or Die” State.

I would be so upset if they start putting caveats or limits on the toplessness laws — specially SINCE folks never really got around to enjoying what the law provides.

Something about the Hampton event always seemed incongruous to me. It would have made huge sense if female toplessness was against the law. But an event like that when there is no law against it is asking for attention — and in this case potential trouble.

They could probably get some laws passed in Concord, in 2016, given the current makeup of the legislature. I would really like to know where Governor Maggie Hassan stands on this. I would have tried to get her support before the event.

To me, ‘we’ should have just pushed the envelope on the permitted toplessness all across the state every day. In Europe you go to a beach or a park and you are likely to see topless women — maybe even folks, of both genders, nude. No fuss. No big deal. That is what the good ladies should have done in New Hampshire. A gradual but concerted effort to introduce and integrate toplessness in the state.

Any backlash we get will be because of the SHOCK-VALUE of the event — which is what the organizers are hoping for. Ironic. C’est la vie. The die is cast.


This letter, protesting the Hampton event is interesting in that it says what I think.
We should have gone for a gradual integration.

Yes, of course, it needs to be a GLOBAL event, BUT it has to start somewhere.

So why not New Hampshire.

The Governor can make it happen in New Hampshire with a simple proclamation. That will get the ball rolling. But, N.H., as with the Presidential Primaries, will always be able to boast that it was the first.

As you know, we do know the Governor. I reminded her of that.

Yes, I am very serious about this. I already have a list of folks that I am going to contact, but Governor Maggie Hassan was #1.

I am hoping that I am not being penalized because I am not white.
That is possible.
That was probably the ONE thing they got right in the Website.
Yes, OF COURSE, they ask you your race.
Screw all the non-whites, we don’t want them having healthcare.

But, I have been trying to get coverage since Day 1: October 1, 2013.

I have made three applications — the last by mail.

Over two weeks later still NOTHING. NADA.

What is MOST galling is that I can’t get any answers from Concord.

I have even contacted the Governor’s Office
and they tell me that they are NOT AWARE OF ANY PROBLEMS.

Well this person in Alton will have to now wait another 4 years. I guess God would appear to be ‘A-OK’ with ObamaCare.

Alton polling station at Prospect Mountain School around 10:45 am.

In general the Republicans had about 100 signs for each Democrat sign (that had not been stolen), but this little grouping of signs leading to the Alton voting station sure tried to make a stand.

An ultra pro-Obama truck at the Gilford polling station. Made my day. Bravo.

Signs at the Laconia/Gilford border.

Gilford voting station at the Middle School. This was in the afternoon. That is winner, Lisa DiMartino standing to the left of the bright blue sign that bears her name. [Just to the right of center.]

We WON:
President Barack Obama, Maggie Hassan for Governor, Carol Shea-Porter, Ann Kuster, Lisa DiMartino
(Gilford & Meredith NH House), Andrew Hosmer.

What a day. What a night. Devanee and I were up till past 2:30 am. Devanee wanted to hear Romney’s concession speech … then the Presidents VICTORY speech. It was a great day for Devanee. She spent much of it with Lisa DiMartino campaigning with Lisa and holding up a Maggie Hassan sign. How great for a 12 year old. She feels so connected. Best form of education. We won.

This was me yesterday, with the local, Obama campaign team leader for Gilford, NH and her beautiful ‘golden’, ‘Sasha’. The ‘GOTV‘ — stands for what I have been doing for the last three weeks: ‘Get Out The Vote‘ (GOTV) for Obama.

As for the one that we lost. It isn’t looking too good my friend, and pharmacist, Rich Leonard. That is a shame. Rich is such a wonderful person. He would have made an exceptional Senator.
