GraniteGrok Debating Awards!

by Skip August 22, 2010

Tongue-in-cheek awards! I can be a long patient person – as shown by my willingness to endure endless hours of drab, humorless blither and blather by office-holder-wannabees, I crave moments of either absolute absurdity or stunning brilliance in the art and execution in the rhetorical arts. Well, Wednesday nite at the Seacoast Republican Women Senatorial […]

Cost of Government Day

by Steve MacDonald August 22, 2010

According to the Center for Fiscal Accountability, New Hampshire residents work 226.8 days to pay for the cost of government this year. So go ahead and celebrate. Everything you earn after August 14th is technically yours to keep.
Who would have thought they’d let you keep 138.2 days worth of income from a years worth of work? What a bargain.

Target (ing) Gaypocrisy

by Steve MacDonald August 22, 2010

Target donated money to a pro business PAC, which donated money to a Minnesota Candidate that makes the Gay activists less than merry.  (Can’t exactly say less gay can I?).  And since the "x degrees of fiscal separation" rule is only relevant to anything to the right of Trotsky, the Gender Confusion Corps (pronounced "corpse") […]

Got a Dollar…er Peso, Bill?

by Tom August 22, 2010

Most everyone has heard the rumor that, while CEO of Carlisle Plastics, Bill Binnie authorized the closing of a clothes-hanger manufacturing facility in California, and had it shipped to Mexico – along with 450 American jobs.   Well, he denied this last week (in a full-page Union Leader ad).  But after researching the SEC filing documents, […]

At the Seacoast Republican Women event – The Crowd – and who else it attracted…

by Skip August 22, 2010

Every indication is that the Democrat Party (and its core base, Progressives / incremental Socialists) is rather fearful of the upcoming election – and here in NH, they have every right to be. Otherwise, how would you explain this crowd: on an otherwise perfect late summer’s night??  A better shot after the jump showing the […]

And I still find interesting the folks that work on the campaigns…

by Skip August 22, 2010

These are not always the Senior Advisor types, or the Strategies folks, but the folks I consider to be the shock troops – the folks that, day in and day out, just do all of the lowest level stuff that has to be done during a campaign – coordinating other volunteers, planting signs, calling people, […]

Rochester / Dover 9-12 picnic – a quick post

by Skip August 22, 2010

It almost goes without saying that there were no Liberals there, no Progressives there, that would have been participating in the event (the speakers, the food, the talking with Liberty minded people) on their own.  Again, the movement is oriented (along with the TEA Party folks) in a "back to the future" manner, that we […]
