State Rep Jen Benson finally answered me – sort of. This morning she sent the following – note her allegation of “harassing emails”. I’m recalling the immortal words of “Give ’em Hell” Harry Truman: “If you can’t stand the heat, – get the hell out of the kitchen!” Jennifer, these questions are simple and straightforward. Ignoring facts is a long-established liberal tactic. Crying “harassment is pretty lame. You can’t hide behind that smoke screen! The voters want answers – thoughtful ones – not cowardly ones.

It is clear from your behavior towards me at events, the tone of your questions, and even the inflammatory name of your blog, that you are not truly interested in any answers that I provide. I am always happy to work with my constituents to solve problems and to get feedback on legislation we are working on, but I also will ignore inflammatory and harassing emails.
Rep. Jen Benson

Good Morning Ms. Benson!
I know you still believe in Al Gore Jennifer, but he’s digging himself in deeper and deeper:
Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.
In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”
However, the climatologist whose work Mr Gore was relying upon dropped the former Vice-President in the water with an icy blast. “It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”
And BTW Jen, I’m very disappointed in you. You couldn’t / wouldn’t give me simple straight answers to two simple questions?
Now as a registered voter in the 37th Middlesex, Ms. Benson, – I would still like you to answer my two questions. In fact, I insist.
