Mack’s Apples Closes Today

Just for the season of course, or do we take our built in farmers market spread out over Londonderry for granted?

The Mack family has farmed central Londonderry since 1793 making it the oldest family-run apple farm in New Hampshire.

Stop in for the last of the apples or to stock up on local gifts today.  According to Mike Cross at the farm, the next crops will fill the farmstand in mid August after the blossoms  in the springtime.  For today you will find Red Delicious, squash and apple cider.

If you have not had a chance to discover all the Londonderry Agrativities take a chance over the next two winter months to explore them.  Visit Londonderry and share the online magazine of our town with as many others as you can.  Consider it a bit like the seed catalog on a cold winter night.  It will give you some hope that Spring will return to New Hampshire.

His signs are usually loaded with left wing biases and questionable information. It’s sad to think that people drive through our town and read the drivel that is often written on these signs. The only positive thing is that since Obama has been elected the frequency of the signs have let up.

      We will soon be longing for the days when insurance only cost $10,000 per family. The IRS has already announced that health insurance under Obama-Care will cost $20,000 per family. So much for lowering the cost of healthcare.

      I’ve never heard of a GOP insurance company. Is that like an HMO?

    2. +7 Vote -1 Vote +1Mac

      What I find funny is that the Dems basically let the insurance companies write the Obama-care law. I also think it’s interesting that there are a lot of Dems (many in high positions) that are in the back pockets of the big pharmaceutical companies. It should also be noted that insurace costs are rising faster with government intervention. My insurance, like most peoples, are covering less and less all because the government said it was okay to do that. So now my premiums go up but my coverage goes down and I’m supposed to think this is a good thing?

      The truth is, the govenment could have done health care reform right. Instread they protected thier lobbist buddies and pushed all the extra costs off on the middle class. Your idea that the evil GOP created this mess is assinine.

  11. -13 Vote -1 Vote +1Steve Homsey

    How can Insurace costs be rising due to Government involvement when the ACA doesn’t start until Oct 2013? Here’s the truth vs. GOP garbage:

    Insurance companies are not driving up their prices because Obamacare is leading them to do so. Rather, the rate increases are due to increasingly expensive health costs that are unaffected by the implementation of the health care law.

    The costs associated with the Affordable Care Act account for only a tiny fraction of the requested increases — less than 1 percent. These amounts cover the costs of the preventative women’s care benefits and the changes in cost sharing, said Paul Lombardo, the actuary for the state Insurance Department who reviews the rate increase requests.

    We know the arguments lead from the GOP was almost verbatim from Health care exec’s internal memos. That’s why I call them puppets.

    I don’t know what to tell you… It’s all there in front of your face; but you choose not to see it. From Protests on wall street to the recent happenings with Boeing to today Standard & poors announcement.

      Since you’re not going to believe me and you’re not going to believe any of the news sites or bloggers talking about this and non of the left wingers are talking about it, read the 73 pages of new IRS regulations covering the Obama health law individual mandate.

      http://www.irs.gov/PUP/newsroom/REG-148500-12%20FR.pdf

      Starting on page 60, every example that the IRS uses assumes a cost of $5,000 per person for the cheapest plan (bronze) for 2016. That’s $20,000 for a family of 4.

      1. -9 Vote -1 Vote +1Steve Homsey

        Red, I would suggest you read what you sent me. Granted it reads like “how to program a satellite”. Here’s what I got out of it:

        Example 2. Family. (i) In 2016 Taxpayers M and N are married and file a joint return. M and N have two children, P and Q. M, N, P, and Q are ineligible to enroll in minimum essential coverage other than coverage in the individual market for a month in 2016. The annual premium for M, N, P, and Q’s applicable plan is $20,000. The adjusted annual premium for M, N, P, and Q’s applicable benchmark plan (within the meaning of §1.36B-3(f)) is $25,000. M and N’s household income is $80,000, which is 347 percent of the Federal poverty line for a family size of 4 for the taxable year.
        (ii) Under paragraph (e)(4)(ii)(C) of this section, the credit allowable under section 36B is determined pursuant to section 36B. With household income at 347 percent of
        the Federal poverty line, the applicable percentage is 9.5. Because each month in 2016 is a coverage month (within the meaning of §1.36B-3(c)), the maximum credit allowable
        under section 36B is the excess of the premium for the applicable benchmark plan over the product of the household income and the applicable percentage ($17,400).

        Therefore, under paragraph (e)(4)(ii)(A) of this section, the required contribution for M, N, P, and Q is $2,600. Under paragraph (f)(2) of this section, M, N, P, and Q have affordable coverage for 2016 because their required contribution ($2,600) does not exceed 8 percent of their household income ($6,400).

        I wish the Right would stop bashing Affordable health care until we actually now all the (any) facts. Does it strike you as funny at all; the Right have spent 3 plus years bashing something they know virtually nothing about?

        3. +5 Vote -1 Vote +1Red Forman

          Steve, allow me to explain what your not understanding. The example you cited refers to a family of 4 earning $80,000. That means they are at 347% of the poverty line. That also means that under the Obama-Care rules they get a subsidy. If you read section 36B of the Internal Revenue Code, the cap is 400% of the poverty line. That means that once the income of that same family exceeds $92,200 the subsidy goes away and they pay the full amount. I’m not sure if you realize this but $92,200 for a family of 4 is not rich. In many parts of the country that’s almost poverty. This will affect millions of families and small business owners. The middle class is going to get slammed.

          This is another example of Obama’s “spread the wealth” mission. He doesn’t care about the people that actually pay most of the taxes and create most of the jobs.

    Actually, parts of the Obamacare bill have already gone in to affect. For small businesses (like the one I work for) many things have affected us before they have been rolled out to the larger population.

    For instance, I have had an HMO plan for many years. Yes, it costs a little more in premiums but it covers almost everything with only a co-pay out of pocket. The Obamacare bill redefined what an HMO is and it now is basically a high deductable policy (in my case $4000 per person with a $10,000 family limit). So the insurance companies can continue to charge the rates they were charging before (with a yearly increase) and cover much less. When I got for a physical now, my blood work is not covered any more. So my $25 co-pay only covers the doctor visit. I have to pay the rest (tests, etc.) out of pocket. My physical now costs me close to $200. They also do not cover x-rays, MRI’s and other types of testing. So the insurance companies and the politicans can claim that premiums have not shot up in price but that is a scam because they cover musch less and the out of pocket costs are much, much higher.

    BTW, you can look it up because it’s public, but the Dems that bragged about the passage of Obamacare are all taking large sums of campaign money from the health care industry. Once again, our wonderful politicians lining their pockets while we take the hit. You can scream about wall street (which also gives tons of cash to the Dems) and oil (the biggest contributor to Nancy Polisi’s campaign last year) chasing down the GOP side of the isle but the real truth is they are all in on the scam, even your sacred, phoney Dems.

    All of that information is in front of your face too and you fail to see it because you will blindly follow a party line without looking at the facts (like Mr. Mack does)

  13. -12 Vote -1 Vote +1Steve Homsey

    Hello Mac, I am anxious to read up the new guides myself. However, I understand Small business (real small business) will benefit the most.

    I have looked it up and the contribution dollars ran at a 3 to 1 ratio for dollars paid to each party. That doesn’t excuse the dems for taking that 1 ratio. Would have been better to say no thanks.

    You’re preaching to the choir on Healthcare costs. I think I range in at $13,000! Yikes.

    I do blame Wall street. Having invested in options / futures for 25 plus years gives me the right; as i have seen it all.

    I have said it may time here and drawn anger, but it is aboslutley fact. When companies, driven soley by profit are allowed to conduct business with the general public, without hard and fast laws and rules: the public ALWAYS loses!

    1. +3 Vote -1 Vote +1Mac

      The problem is that the rising costs are hurting small businesses. The law does nothing to control costs even though they have tried to make it sound that way. The only people getting savings out of this are the health care companies (insuance in particular). The costs is being pushed on to you and me.

      The only way small businesses are going to benefit is if they drop their health insurance and throw the employees into the federal pool. Then those people will be force to buy thier own insurance (which the fed program is always the cheapest). So the companies save the dough and the employees are forced to pick up the cost on thier own. On top of that, the fed programs are always lousy (like Medicare and Medicaid). So I will stand by my statement that the middle class will get HUGE increases in costs while the insurance companies save a bundle. This whole thing is a fiasco.

      I never said that wall street wasn’t to blame for the issues. I am saying that ALL the politicians are taking the money, not just the Reps. When people like John Kerry and Harry Reid make statements about the corruption of money in Washington I find it insulting especially when these two men have used Washington and thier standing there to gain wealth. I think it is shortsighted to think one party corners the market on corruption.

      And I will say it again… Washington had the opportiunity to make real reform in the health care system. Instead, they pushed through a bill that even they didn’t read or understand (remember Pelosi’s statement that they had to p[assthe bill before they would know what is in it). It was all political theater and the middle class will once again be taken over the coals because the politicans play to the people that line thier pockets, in this case the health care industry.

      I am assuming you are talkign about either the oil business or wall street when you say 3 to 1. But for every sector that favors the GOP there is another sector that favors the Dems. The Dems want you to believe that the GOP is the only group taking large contributions from big business. It’s a complete and utter lie.

        Also, I hear that the employer amount paid towards your health care will be considered taxable income starting in 2014. Wait until we see the uproar from the middle class when that kicks in. For some, it will bounce them into a new tax bracket.

    Ok Ken, My last company was purchased by a Venture Capital fund. If you want the details, I’ll be happen to supply.

    Oil companies are greedy. They make a combined 35 Billion profit per QUARTER PROFIT and receive up to 50 Billion in Public Welfare. And many don’t pay taxes!

    You have said it yourself: Venture Captial, what do you think that means. A lot of people making money (shareholders). Where does the worker of these companies factor into this? I believe you hit the proverbial nail on the head without realizing it.

      Razzle Dazzle Alert!!!!!
      Where do you come up with your figures? The number recognized by both the oil industry as well as the CBO is that oil companies recieve approximately $4 billion a year in tax breaks not 50.I am of the belief that NO company should receive ANY assistance from the government.Plus could you also provide the names of the “many” that don’t pay taxes.

      Saying one VC companie is bad, so Bain is bad, is like saying there is one rogue cop dealing drugs, so all cops are bad.

      $35 Billion in profit is wrong, if your sales are $37 billion, but not too impressive when your sales are $35 Trillion. And by the way, not all profiys by Exxon / Mobile are from oil.

      Stop drinking the Koolaid Steve.

    Oh brother! The employees are the shareholders. We, the public are the shareholders. You mentioned your Google stock, that means your a Google shareholder. Does that mean your greedy? You speak of shareholders as if they are people from outer space.

    Oil companies make good profits because they provide a product that people want and need. A product that is costly to extract and refine. The government makes more profit from gasoline than the oil companies.

      It should be noted that the profit margin on gasoline and deisel is very low. The only reason there are record profits going on it because of basic math. When the speculators (the people that really control the cost of oil) drive up the prices they also increase the profits. If oil prices dipped back down the profits would drop off too. The oil companies are always being called greedy yet they don’t control thier own prices. I don’t get that.

    Gentleman,

    Red, not a shareholder. Mostly options, naked options. Although I cannot compete with HFT’s. I’m sure you won’t have to look that up as you already know everything. I can also tell you I have been flagged twice (violating SEC rules) for being a “pattern day trader” and been suspended. That’s actually hilarious; little old me; while absolute corruption goes on every second.

    But you guys know everything, right?

    And Ken, I have not only seen, I have lived it.

    Good luck with the Snow!

            Hello Ken,

            No. Actually the best way is too:

            “Give me what I want, and I’ll go away”.

            That being: The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you.

      Exactly what I expected. When someone is full of $%&*, that’s all that comes out of their mouth. You have been exposed for all the world to see. When you state something as fact, you better be able to back it up. Typical liberal.

        Typical of the left. You write it and when someone else writes it back you scream foul. If I ever see: A FACT ON HERE i THINK i’LL FALL OFF MY CHAIR!

        I told you guys time and time again stop the propoganda, stop blaming Obama for all your past faults. You lost get over it. the country and bulf of NH know more than you, that’s why you lost.

    Typical of the left is a phenomena that shows itself whenever an emotion based position is confronted by facts. It manifests itself in a lowering of civil discourse. It bears a strong resemblance to a child sticking his fingers in his ears and shouting “I can’t hear you”.

    Gentlemen, you have peeked behing the curtain. There is no wizard, there is not even a man, just a petulant child.

    Frank, as with most you missed the point. Each time I have interfaced with Bill he writes that stuff &*%$. When I do it back he crys. Not man enough to say: Ok, well I know why you wrote that because I have written it too you multiple times. Typical of the right pehaps????

      Hey Steve,
      More razzle dazzle. Tell the truth here to all. Look back at the posts from the first of the year until mid January. I was being VERY civil to you. Even joking about you and I teaming up to run for office. Remember? It was you that went into the gutter when we were disagreeing on a subject. You started it and can’t handle when someone cames back at you. I cry? I only replied to you. It is obvious to EVERYONE on this site that you are a clueless liar that wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked you up beside that cement head of yours. You like to spew out facts and when your called to back them up you don’t. Because you can’t. When you engage in a battle of wits you should bring reinforcements because your ammo case is empty. You have been exposed for all to see. By the way I’m still waiting for you to give us the name of ANY oil company that made a profit and didn’t pay taxes. You know the FACT that you stated a couple of days ago? You won’t because you can’t. Which is typical of all of your arguments. I’m not crying. I’m just pointing out to all what a bull%&*$er you really are.
