    the Massholes is a name for the liberals. It's the term of endearment that all New Hamster folks call all Massachusettsians because they assume we are ALL liberal. ;)

      That was my understanding of the term of (non-)endearment "Masshole" when I lived in New Hampshire.

      Political party wasn't part of the epithet, though it was always assumed that the Masshole was attempting to circumvent taxation (something of a libertarian impulse, I suppose). I always thought it a bit odd that they'd do so, since NH residents are still subject to MA income taxes if they work in MA. Then again, having a New Hampshire address means big sales tax savings when you buy a car or other such big-ticket item.

      Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. -- K.Marx A.Lincoln
