by Skip May 25, 2010

Just got this from a tipster.  It seems that there is a movement afoot among the Left here in NH (the meeting with NH HOUSE and SENATE members had  NO recognizable Republicans present, according to the tipster).  Neither were there any Right leaning advocacy groups present either. Rumor is, the vote is tomorrow – can […]

In All Fairness

by Steve MacDonald May 25, 2010

Recent discussion about opposing opinions being mandated alongside existing internet content got me thinking.  Could we apply this to everything on-line?  Ads for fruit would need to include references to candy-bars of salty snacks.  Omaha Steaks would need to include a click through to Purdue chicken.  Every business would need to permit you to access competing […]

No, it’s not “every one for themselves” – its a declaration of “self-responsibility

by Skip May 25, 2010

Jim Splaine: Some people — perhaps too many — have come to view taxes as penalties rather than as ways that we together share in funding the cost of serving people.  Er, Jim?  It’s very much starting to be that too few share your vision of Government "serving people".  When it is an overwhelming majority […]
