About That “No Tax Pledge” Candidate Hassan…

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2012

It’s a well regarded fact that Democrat Candidate Maggie “The Red” Hassan, early in her candidacy for Governor of New Hampshire, took a Pledge to veto any sales or Income tax.  This is something of an election year tradition.  Democrats who have been trying to raise old taxes or pass new taxes for years find […]

by Mike July 15, 2012

We first became aware of the extent of the Obama campaign’s freeloading when the Town of Durham, NH, objected to the police overtime and other costs that the Presidential (campaign) visit would incur. Meanwhile, we read in the Boston Herald that the associated visit to Boston was much more expensive, but (Democrat) Mayor Tom Menino […]

by Skip July 15, 2012

Last nite GraniteGrok was invited to cover a house event for Ovide Lamontagne (candidate for the Republican nomination for NH Governor) that was hosted by Jerry Thibodeau of Rumney, NH.  These tend to be small, intimate affairs where the attendees are much more in tune, politically, than most and it showed in the question and […]

Let’s Play Spot The Socialist Dullard

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2012

New Hampshire has it’s share of obvious Socialist thieves.  Democrat candidate William ‘Hud’ Connery is an admitted socialist.  Folks like Catholic Socialist Peter ‘Can’t wait to get Connery on the team’ Sullivan, are a half-shade less obvious; Sullivan is an anti tax pledge guy as well and a supporter of Jackie ‘Tax and Spend us” […]

Green Jobs? We Don’t Make No Stinkin’ Green Jobs.

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2012

Did anyone tell Jeanne “The Greene” Shaheen that all that Taxpayer investment in the Green Energy economy was not really about creating good, permanent, American jobs?  If I recall correctly she ran on that, has repeatedly suggested it, and in the wake of a domino effect of green energy loan failures, managed to avoid any […]

GrokTV Special Interview: Susan Olsen,NH House Candidate (Merrimack-7) – Question 5: Make NH State agencies more responsible to citizens?

by Skip July 15, 2012

How many State Representatives talk about “reforming government” (as opposed to Obama, with his Pack of Regressive Progressives, which to “reform” us) – and the look in their eye says “and more than with lip service??  I got that opinion from Susan Olsen as she kicks off her run to get into the NH State […]

Well Isn’t This Rich. (Or Not, Actually.)

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2012

Has it occurred to anyone that the Democrats “Tax the Rich®” agenda (soon to be available–inevitably–in “Middle Class” sizes) isn’t so much a goal of taking more, from those who have more, to give it to those who have less, but a plan to keep people who are not Progressives or Democrats–and connected to the […]
