I Was Blatantly Racially Profiled By ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock (Concord)’ Today!

I could NOT believe it. At registration, at the front, the receptionist asked me, point-blank: “Are you a U.S. citizen?”

Ah?

I had presented her my valid N.H. driver’s license WITH REAL ID (which states that I have been fully vetted) & my Humana Advantage card that showed that I was on MediCare. Moreover, I had been a registered patient there of 12-years! I was just there to get a pneumonia shot — by appointment, after having got my flu shot a few weeks ago.

They have never previously asked whether I was a U.S. citizen.

What does citizenship have to do with Dartmouth ‘bloody’ Hitchcock?

I asked her that. She just shrugged her shoulder.

This is NOT right.

I am NOT going to let this one pass.

This was the final straw with the bunch of clowns at Dartmouth ‘bloody’ Hitchcock — Concord.


They have screwed me by overcharging $1,600 (out-of-pocket) for a colonoscopy.

They nearly KILLED me by not giving me the treatment I needed.

They treated my daughter since she was born BUT thought she was a BOY when her gender was never in question.

That is it. I am DONE.

I have already reported them to the ACLU and Senator Maggie Hassan. And I have just started.

They can’t be allowed to carry on.

Bloody Dartmouth Bloody Hitchcock.

And they are NOT even ASSOCIATED with Dartmouth Hitchcock in Hanover. They have JUST bought the rights to use the name. You didn’t know that did you?

New Hampshire: How Long Before Permanent Plastic Driver’s License Arrives (To Replace Paper) — 2017

by Anura Guruge


In my case: 24-days.

Thursday, July 12, 2017 to Saturday, August 5, 2017.

Went to the main Concord DMV office around 3pm on Thursday, July 12, 2017.

Was issued paper license valid for 60-days, i.e., until September 10, 2017.

Plastic, READ ID, license arrives, much to my relief, on Saturday, August 5, 2017.

3 weeks 3 days = 24 days.




This came with the license (and another letter about renewal in 5-years). Click to ENLARGE and read. Interesting stuff about ‘Read ID’ and the validity of non-Real ID licenses for federal purposes (read TSA) till October 2020.


I did request a ‘Read ID’ license and mine does have a STAR on it — top right. Seems rather incongruous that this is how Real-ID is designated. There is, however, a lot of encoded ‘barcode’ information at the back of the card. I suspect that police and other agencies will read the license with a scanner and get access to all the back-end data.


24-days is NOT bad. Pretty good, if anything.

In mid-2015 we noticed 28 days.

It was 20-days in 2012. So, not bad.

Hope this helps.

Current New Hampshire Driver’s Licenses, WITHOUT ‘REAL ID’, Still Good For Domestic Air Travel Till October 2020!

by Anura Guruge


There had been much talk and rumors that current New Hampshire driver’s licenses, which are NOT ‘Real ID‘ compliant, will cease to be valid for domestic air travel as of June 2016.

Then in January 2016 the NH House passed a bill that would allow NH residents to get, if they so wish, ‘Real ID’ compliant driver’s licenses.

Now, according to NH DMV you will have the option of asking for these ‘Real ID’ licenses starting as of January 1, 2017. I am delighted. I will need a new license in September 2017. So I can get a ‘Real ID’ license then.

The even better news is that I will NOT need a ‘Real ID’ license to fly, within the U.S., till 2020. That is great. So it will all work out quite nicely.

Here are two useful references, one from “Homeland Security (TSA)” and the other from “NH DMV“. Use the links here to access the originals. Click on images to ENLARGE and read here.
