by Skip August 3, 2010

OK, this is not turning out to be the "serious post" night that I thought it would be…so, have some fun with this.  Just stay with it – the good stuff starts in at about the 52 second mark: (H/T: Boing Boing)

See what happens when I’m away – Fran Wendelboe advertizes for her opponent (and trashes potential voters)

by Skip August 3, 2010

STILL trying to play catch up from being gone from NH for a week and half – some things surprised me: How great is it that Fran Wendelboe has a “Fran for State Senate” bumper sticker on her Subaru Forrester. Forrester, get it? Well, that was right nice of her, helping to advertise for her […]

Notes on the 17th Amendment

by Skip August 3, 2010

The 17th Amendment – the one that shifted the election of Senators from the State Legislators (a key part of holding the power of Federal Government in check vis-a-vis that of the States) was flogged by Progressives at the turn of the last century as being "anti-cronyism".  Why shouldn’t the public vote on Senators?

Judd, your name is mudd…

by Tom August 3, 2010

I know Skip posted a similar entry about this earlier, but I need to give Judd Gregg our "Dope of the Week" award, for supporting Elena Kagan for the SCOTUS. I called his office in DC today, to ask "why??".  His staffer said something to the effect of, "he decided to support her based on […]

Data Point – the Obamessiah is soon going to be without a congregation in his church if this keeps up…

by Skip August 3, 2010

From USA Today: Only 41% of those surveyed Tuesday through Sunday approved of the way Obama is handling his job, his lowest rating in the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll since he took office in January 2009. In Gallup’s separate daily tracking poll, his approval was at 45% Monday. 6 out of 10 think Obama’s a clunker […]

Don’t worry, Democrat Progressives will figure out a way to protest this too

by Skip August 3, 2010

A great letter from Dan Boudreaux (Cafe Hayek) about the Left’s "selective" outrage on inequality: Like Michael Smith, I don’t suffer from the “Progressive” itch for income equality (Letters, Aug. 3).  Not only does achievement of such “equality” require the state to treat people unequally, obsession with income equality also reflects a Scrooge-like fetish for […]

Why Not Bob Giuda?

by Steve MacDonald August 3, 2010

As one of the leaders of the NHRCV I played a part along with our tireless leader Kevin McHugh when our membership voted to endorse Jennifer Horn late last year.  We here at the Grok have endorsed Jennifer and yes I had a hand in that as well.  And since then a few libertarians–Bob Giuda’s […]

It isn’t JUST about the money…

by Skip August 3, 2010

From this  Conservative’s view, this seems to fit well; from Kevin Landrigan’s column of last Sunday, this caught my eye: Binnie is socially moderate on abortion rights and related issues and if those dominate, he could get turned a shooting star that burns out fast, Scala continued. "In some ways, Binnie is a throwback to […]
