So you are one of those people form away who think they have the right to tell us how to do things. :D
Full disclosure, I was born in Vermont, spent about 13 years growing up and Maine and then 23 years in the NYC area befoire coming back to Maine seven years ago.
Yep. I'm one of those people from away. Got drove out of NH thirty years ago by out-of-staters moving in, and now I'm an "OOS" in Maine. :D
" U.S. marshals posing as supporters arrested convicted tax-evaders Ed and Elaine Brown at their rural, fortress-like home, the head marshal said Friday.
"They invited us in, and we escorted them out," U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier said, releasing the first details of Thursday night's arrests"
What? No grassy knoll incidents??????
I am shocked :shock:
And the Browns go out in a fizzle instead of the big bang they wanted. Oh well. Maybe next time

I pray that one man on each jury understands the power of jury nullification, and has the courage to exercise it.
It's time for the income tax slavery ring to stop.
Will Mainers strike a blow at the heart of the empire with the courage of a lion or meekly pour gas on its raging inferno like pathetic cowards in the hope that they can avoid being burned?
Henry Clay, and others who believe the income tax is legal and Constitutional:
Please define slavery, and explain to me how the federal income tax does not meet that definition.

Gentle FYI: There is no such thing as "OSS in Maine". The only people who would make such a mistake in syntax are non-Mainers.
In the state of Maine, people from OOS are "from away". (Alternative derogatory name assignment: "flatlanders".)
Funny thing about that term, "flatlander". Where I come from in NH we've got hills that in Maine would be called mountains. On the other hand, in NH there are lakes that in Maine would be considered ponds....
New Hampshire has its (economic) booms, and Maine has its recessions. :D :roll:
I couldn't resist an opportune conservative remark. And I'm still not that economically conservative.
It's safe to say I won't make it onto that jury.

Oh yeh get your ass out on Moosehead in a canoe, especially tonight
What I meant Mike is, for instance, down the road from me is Medomak Pond. But in NH it would be called Medomak Lake. Lakes being bigger than ponds. In NH what is called a pond would be a puddle in Maine. :wink:
