School Board Meeting Posting

This is the meeting at which the Windham School Board is going to discuss their JBAB policy.  I guess some little birdies told the head honcho that the jig was up on trying to use a smaller room than what might be needed to get the meeting canceled due to [deliberate] overcrowding.  Good for the good guys!

Yesterday, I mentioned that there  is “…a website (think “Roosskies” attacking elections, and you get the picture, perhaps)!” involved in Windham – sorta like what Doug and I used to do here in our town.  We called our’s GilfordGrok and it was dedicated to just those things related to in town. However, there’s one HUGE difference between us and Windham Link To Education – we reported on stuff all year long; it seems they only “come alive” once every couple of years just before an election.  We call them “seagulls” (like some consultants in industry – fly in, drop a load, and fly away).  Yes, they have a few other items like Really Big Building programs – and seem to give the impression that Really Big really should be Really, REALLY Big.

Yet, isn’t a Transgender Policy a  Read the whole thing!


New Boston WinslowNew Boston is still in the process of “cleaning up” the Winslow property on River Rd. “Cleaning out” is more like it.

Here is a picture of the log truck the Town hired with a handshake agreement – no certificate of insurance required for this scheme. Although Town Policy requires it and others have to comply, not with this deal. You see, no contract – no time limit.

If you look closely you can see the Town’s contractor is hauling away Mr. Winslow’s galvanized boat trailer – license plate still attached. Nothing heavy was dropped on top of the boat trailer except some of Mr. Winslow’s tools.

Why would the Town of New Boston try and pull this off?

Pro-rape Democrats and sexual-assaultSome people must have better things to do with their time than being lectured to by the Social Justice Overseers in California,

[College Fix] When the UCLA Intergroup Relations Program recently hosted an event to allow the campus community to discuss “toxic masculinity,” 10 students showed up.

The discussion, held Tuesday, was billed as a way to allow students a chance to discuss “the silence surrounding toxic masculinity, emotional repression, locker room talk, and broader social norms,” according to organizers.

Meanwhile, in New Hampshire,

Press Release

For Immediate Release: 2/19/2018
Contact: Patrick Hynes, (202) 321-5310

CONCORD – NHGOP Chair Jeanie Forrester released the following statement calling for an investigation into Andru Volinsky:

“Following bizarre media reports, we are calling for the Office of the Attorney General to open an investigation into Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky’s misguided sting operation into our state liquor commission. As an elected official and an officer of the court, Councilor Volinsky ought to know the proper channels one should go through to investigate any potential wrongdoing. His entire ‘investigation’ reeks of political opportunism that placed Liquor Commission employees and customers at substantial risk. The Attorney General needs to investigate all aspects of Councilor Volinsky’s odd ‘investigation’ and his disturbing behavior during this troubling situation.”

Planned Parenthood (PP) gave $81,000.00 dollars to Harris who, as California AG, had Daniel Daleiden’s home raided after he helped expose how PP was selling the slaughtered remains of babies.

Gallup united of dividedThere isn’t much room in today’s Democrat Party for independent thought or moderate positions. Whether it’s about the right of an unborn fetus to live vs. the right of a woman to choose, the inherent rights of American citizens vs. the perceived rights of illegal aliens, or religious freedom and traditional values vs. another new category of people seeking special protection, Democrats are of one mind. They all stand together on the far left, a place where dissent is never tolerated. Read the whole thing!

australian flagSuddenly, we are supposed to be concerned about Russian computer trolls and Russian dirty tricksters exhibiting a fake Hillary in a fake cage dressed like a prisoner, which are actions we are supposed to believe swayed an entire election, let alone a single vote.

Some 13 comrades with the million-dollar skills to write articles about candidates and post them on a computer site are the best our Special Trump Prosecutor could come up with in a year’s worth of investigation by Harvard Law grads?

Wouldn’t it normally be a crime to think Americans were this stupid? There must be a law somewhere a with which a grand jury could indict Mr. Mueller.

Now the New Hampshire connection.

This is what happens when experts in an area try to bloviate in others – and in their hubris, never think about Black Swans or other disruptive forces throwing the status quo for a long fall.


Oh, that other blowhard?

Windham School Board Transgender Bathroom Policy discussion

I’m getting a few folks emailing and calling about this, remember when the Windham School Board decided that it just HAD to have a Transgender bathroom policy in place (even, as I am told, that they don’t have any Transgender students in the district)?  Go ahead and reconcile those two things and I have a hypothesis: it’s the next item “of value” in the never-ending Educational-Industrial Complex.

regulationsIs anyone surprised that a California Democrat Wants To Tax Energy Consumption from Bitcoin Mining?

Bitcoin transactions require an enormous amount of energy. Dutch bank ING estimates that a single transaction consumes enough electricity to power a home for weeks. The expensive and energy-consuming verification process of transactions, otherwise known as mining, is meant to deter crime and fraud. Because Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rose to prominence in 2017, research claims the total energy consumption from last year was more than the annual usage of 159 countries.

Al_Gore_Fire bannerExxon continues to punch back at detractors looking to make a name for themselves by filing environmental conspiracy lawsuits against the energy giant.

A lesser battle, which I reported a few weeks ago, followed an effort by seven California cities trying to get settlements for putting their municipalities at risk. Devastating claims conspicuously absent in their courting of bond investors.

This time Exxon is hunting the lever pullers behind the coordinated attack by Green Groups and AG’s lead by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Al Gore, and others.

Crime SceneIf ever there was a case of the so-called “school shooter” phenomenon being about guns – this Florida case isn’t it.

I see the anti-Second Amendment industry has mobilized its minions about as fast as a Russian can put together an anti-Hillary for President parade float, but this incident is not about how militaristic a semi-auto rifle looks. It is way more than that.

Guns and bullets were involved in Florida’s government mega-school shooting all right, but the boy involved also rang every alarm bell professionals and amateurs are supposed to notice – before something like this happens. Read the whole thing!

Sheriff - School ShootingSo, the Media and entertainment culture is to blame.

WATCH: Washington sheriff after latest school shooting: “You started glorifying cultures of violence — you’ve glorified the gang culture, you’ve glorified games that actually give you points for raping and killing people. Gun didn’t change. We changed.”

H/T John Burt – Facebook


Liberal Guide to an AR-15

As Miss Kimberly points out (and KY Gov. Matt Bevins) is that two of the root causes are mental illness and how we handle it, and the change in the culture.  However, the mainstream media has a large role to play in this and John Hawkins summarized why the media is actually ENCOURAGING mass killings at [gun-free zone] schools:

5 Terrible Things the Media Communicates to Every Potential School Shooter

Here is what the media coverage conveys to every potential shooter out there:

  1. You will be famous
  2. The world will come to a stop for you and talk about nothing else for days
  3. A school is the target that will get you the most attention
  4. You should use an AR-15; they are the most dangerous and cool
  5. No one will shoot back at you at a school—and we’ll make damned sure it stays that way!
    Pssssst. Hey, buddy, did you know schools are Gun Free Zones?

Per usual with his “list posts”, go read what he says about each point. (H/T: PJ Media)

Gadsden FlagA long post from Matt Kibbe about the TEA Party’s demise – the milestone WAS this latest “CRomnibus” act that kept the Feds open (again, no big deal to me if it had shut down) and also spent FAR more than we can afford.  GraniteGrok was one of the co-founders of the NH TEA Party Coalition – a group of us that had had it with politicians up and down the chain. We all agreed that if we weren’t willing to do something ourselves, no one did.  We did – and we had an impact. Using the Constitution as our Measure of Quality, we held their feet to the fire and it worked. At least for a while.

Again, with the Republicans leading the charge on spending and widening the deficit, what IS the difference between the Dems and the Republicans???   Sigh…


The Tea Party Is Officially Dead. It Was Killed by Partisan Politics.
I helped make the grassroots activist movement a reality. But now the party’s over.

The grassroots movement that fought so hard for fiscal sanity in government over the past decade is no more. It was killed off by the very same Washington establishment it sought to overthrow. Its death leaves proponents of limited government with some big questions: What went wrong? And what do we do now?

Over the past several days, there have been many conversations about the Florida Parkland school shooting but where are these conversations leading?

It’s horrifying, heinous, disgusting and shocking to turn on the news and discover that a fellow human being decided to murder multiple fellow human beings, especially when those humans are children or young adults.

As the country watches in horror, the first thought that usually comes to everyone’s mind is WHY? Why in the hell would ANYONE choose to murder innocent people? WHY?

A majority cannot wrap their heads around this kind of evil. Yes, it’s in movies and on television but that’s not real life. In real life, people aren’t supposed to treat each other this way.

Sadly, within minutes of a mass killing, certain people, especially if a firearm is the object of choice to murder innocents, dip their hands into the blood of the victims in order to wave them around and demand ALL law-abiding citizens pay the price for the actions of a psychopathic murderer.

I just read this piece by David French at NRO. At first read, I was, and am still, skeptical and a little suspicious. But he makes some good arguments and does address the due process problem found in the other list approaches where the list restricts someones access to firearms without recourse and thus obliterating […]

Special Trump Prosecutor Indicts 13 Ham Sandwiches – With Russian Dressing.

“Collusion” is writing fake news articles about the media’s most favored candidate? Is that what Russian meddling in an election is about? I feel safer already. What will Mueller’s next move be, arrest Putin and make him talk? We all know this is nuts, right? Indicting foreigners for an almost non-existent case of collusion, meddling, […]
