About 16 Percent of New Hampshire Residents Work in Massachusetts
October 15, 2017

If you commute to Mass., youíve got 123,000 colleagues

Commuter Central: New Hampshire Towns that Border Massachusetts

Its only gotten worse. Do you ever do any research?

Ya ok keep believing in your fantasy

Like i said do you do any research
Bow is not up state

Why you would use this example itís far from random ,

Bow NH has a massive population of 8299 is an hour from Boston and 94% white median home 446k. Total number of homes and apartments 2731

And from 2000 to 2001 total appreciation was 92.8 % There #1 in NH and 4th in the nation

Yep you destroyed the 15% of of NH residents commute to MA


Exeter is a medium-sized town located in the state of New Hampshire. With a population of 16,049 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Exeter is the 18th largest community in New Hampshire.

MEDIAN HOME VALUE:
$467,105

NUMBER OF HOMES AND APARTMENTS:
6,693

Since 2000:
2000 Q1 - 2022 Q1 101.62 TOTAL APPRECIATION And 2 nd in the state 5th in the nation

This is from NH government they also must be making stuff up! Itís always the case when your suggestion fall apart


Nearly all (94.6 percent) New Hampshire residents who commute out‐of‐state travel to work in one of the three bordering states.
 Among those New Hampshire residents who leave the state for work, 78.6 percent travel to Massachusetts, 8.5 percent travel to work in Vermont, and 7.5 percent travel to work in Maine.
 Just over 300 resident

you said ďmostĒ in those towns work in Mass. then you posted that 16% work in Mass.

Is 16% most? or is it a small
minority?

you lied. and you showed us how mad you are at math.

youíre proving my point. places like Bow are booming because people
realize they donít need to pay blue state taxes to have a great quality of life. Bow is proof of that.

you exactly made my point for
me, unless you can show that everyone in Bow works in Mass.

Bow is 70 miles from boston. iíd like to see you do that in an hour during rush hour. you got one thing right, itís not upstate, i was wrong. everything else you got wrong.

NH has no state sales tax, and no state income tax. So iím pretty comfortable saying the state there runs itself as a right leaning place. I never said it was OK or SC.

Yet they create a quality of life in NH thatís so desirable, that a tiny town there has one of the hottest real
estate markets in the country.

My point is thisÖyou donít always get what you pay for. The statistics that WDMSO posted prove my point precisely.

Naturally you responded to something that i never said. Because even as stupid as you are. you know iím right.

What services are the ďaverageĒ people living in NH not getting, that i get in CT thanks to the much higher taxes i pay?

none of you can name a single thing we get for that extra $$ in CT.

talk about moving the goalposts.

First you said most NH residents in those towns work in Mass.

Now youíre saying that among NH residents who work out of state, most work in a neighboring state.

No sh*t, Sherlock. I never said people in NH work in Alaska.

16% isnít most wayne. itís an exception, not the rule.

NH is a cheap place, yet people
want to live there.

Please name one liberal state that has nice towns to live in, with very low state and local taxes? Please name just one.

New Hampshire

The Political Climate in New Hampshire is Leaning liberal.

In New Hampshire 52.7% of the people voted for the Democratic Party in the last presidential election, 45.4% voted for the Republican Party, and the remaining 1.9% voted for an Independent Party.

In the last Presidential election, New Hampshire remained moderately Democratic, 52.7% to 45.4%.
New Hampshire voted Democratic in the last five Presidential elections, after voting Republican in 2000

So you choose to ignore all the stats posted about red vs blue but want want me to compare 1 blue state with 1 purple?? state to try to prove disprove the volumes of stats presented.

You're an actuary (aren't you?). There are outliers for everything but the stats all show red states lag far behind blue states in almost all good categories and led in the bad categories.

Yep still thinking people live where they live because of taxes and politics. But your not radicalized nope

youíre proving my point. places like Bow are booming because people
realize they donít need to pay blue state taxes to have a great quality of life. Bow is proof of that.

Like I said you live in a fantasy you were fed a town that you thought fit your narrative that has a whopping 2777 homes

Even my town with its 7100 homes in 2000 Q1 - 2022 Q1 had TOTAL APPRECIATION 127.65%

whatís the old saying a rising tide floats all boats

Bow was one town. I also
mentioned hollis, brookline, bedford, amherst. i also could have mentioned any of the suburbs of charlotte or nashville.

can you name one town in. liberal state thatís a cheap place to live and offers a high quality of life? insulting me doesnít answer the question.

people donít move directly for politics. but they move for cost versus value. red places offer better value, you can it snet that americans believe that, if you look at where theyíre moving to.

wouldn't abortion be the exact opposite of reproductive care? just curious....could we start euthanizing old people and call it geriatric care? I read that Canada is going to start euthanizing people for mental illness...so that's what?...psychiatric care?

being opposed to infanticide, isnít inconsistent with being for individual liberty.

Your simpleminded brain only allows you to look at this from the motherís point of view. Thatís clearly one point of view to consider. But thereís another point of view thatís also part of this

Youíre callous enough to ignore the perspective of the innocent, defenseless baby. Thatís your problem, not my problem.

Caring about protecting an in i ent baby, is in no way i consistent with conservatism

Given whatís likely about to happen to your side, perhaps you should be worried about what your side believes, and less worried about what my side believes

Hereís a true hypocrisy. The party that claims to care about choice, denies school choice. The party that claims to care about women, insists that they compete physically against men.

Poor victim,
Left to your own, public education would end, transsexuals would be hung and GQP membership would be required for government employment.

The Trumplican party is far more extreme than Americans

205 House Republicans voted against protecting interstate travel for reproductive care
- 195 House Republicans voted against protecting contraception access
- 157 House Republicans voted against marriage equality

Trump is planning on being the 2024 candidate and can win the GQP primary

I think no matter what you do, your side is going to take a decent beating in 2022. and if polling is correct with regards to hispanics, your party really needs to go back to the drawing board. Huge numbers of hispanics are catholic, and actual devout catholics, not phony catholics like Biden. They do not like the demented social policies the left is shoving in our faces.

iíve said a million times that if the left could nominate a normal, actual
moderate ( like the 1992 version of bill clinton), that person would
win 35+ states in a general election. thatís what america wants today.

But the DNC is a million miles to the left of that right now. thatís not what america wants.

itís interesting. america liked obama ( for no good reason), but didnít like his policies. America despised trump ( for perfectly valid reasons) but liked his policies. Trump wasnít a crazy conservative. advocating for criminal justice reform was a liberal policy. but america wanted it.

Iím not as worried as you

Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman has launched a petition seeking to induct Dr. Oz into the New Jersey State Hall of Fame.

Is there any doubt that if Josh Hawley was a passenger on Titanic, he would have shoved aside women and children to grab one of the first seats on a lifeboat?
