GrokTV Special Interview: Susan Olsen,NH House Candidate (Merrimack-7) – Question 7: How to put more accountability into State Agencies?

by Skip July 17, 2012

Question 5 that I asked of Susan Olsen (Candidate for the NH House in Merrimack-7) dealt with the idea / concern of whether or not State Agencies are sufficiently open and approachable by ordinary citizens.  Of course, it made sense to follow up – if there is a problem, how to solve it? Question 7: […]

by Skip July 17, 2012

Everybody who is running “to accomplish something” (vs running to “be a Someone”) has a list of items of high priority.  So, we wanted to know what is the bee in the bonnet for Rick Parent, running for US Congress in New Hampshire’s first Congressional District!

GrokTV Special Interview: Bob Burns (candidate for NH Executive Council District 4) – Q3: How would the Executive Council advance your vision of Government?

by Skip July 17, 2012

Obligatory question for almost everyone I interview – and now adding in “and what would you do about that?”  In this case, Bob Burns was asked the same question  to find out what he thinks how the Executive Council could “progress forward” (heh!  take THAT Libs!) to his vision of a smaller government?  Given what […]

GrokTV Event – Rumney home event for Ovide Lamontagne (Candidate, NH Governor) – Question 3 – Do any tort reforms in the State in order to help us?

by Skip July 17, 2012

The last question was on Obamacare and how to protect NH business owners from it; this question concerns the legal ramifications as well – tort reform.  It is almost obligatory to say that the Democrats are so beholden to the trial lawyers (along with Big Unions, Big Environmentalism, and Wall Street) that their legislation often […]

I’d Like to Know What New Hampshire Democrats Think About This?

by Steve MacDonald July 17, 2012

I’d like to know what New Hampshire Democrats think about this? Under President Obama’s healthcare law, the HHS can levy $100 per employee, per day against institutions that won’t comply with the (contraceptive) mandate. Therefore, religious employers with hundreds of employees could be fined millions of dollars each year. A 50-employee institution, for example, would […]

Another Fanciful Editorial in The Citizen of Laconia

by Don July 17, 2012

One marvels at the audacity of the falsehoods in The Citizen of Laconia’s July 12 editorial.  Seeing a claim that Republicans refused to engage in the healthcare debate and that is why Obamacare is “flawed” makes one wonder if The Citizen is an arm of the Obama campaign.    Republicans promoted things which are popular […]

Finally Some School Choice in NH

by Don July 17, 2012

New Hampshire parents and children should annually celebrate June 27th.  On that day, the NH Legislature enacted SB 372 which helps the children of low and middle income families attend the schools of their choice rather than being trapped in failing and mediocre public schools.   On June 27th 251 Republicans and one Democrat overrode […]

by Skip July 17, 2012

Or “What ever happened to that pair we saw Wayne MacDonald with when he debated NH Dem Chair Ray Buckley on Close-up“? Or “Leadership by cowering“? Or “See no evil, hear no evil, speak pablum” Problem outlined and question posited here.  Well, I got my requested answer (credit for that, anyways) and Tory Mazolla, the […]

How about a justification for slavery?

by Tim Condon July 17, 2012

Last Friday President Obama gave a speech in Virginia where he said, among other things, “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own….If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that […]

So, Ray Burton (NH Executive Councilor, District 1, Grafton County Commissioner) is pulling a Governor Peterson in endorsing….a Democrat??

by Skip July 17, 2012

This came over the transom: ‘Republican’ Ray Burton has endorsed Democrat County Commissioner Michael Cryans for reelection.  Burton has also refused to endorse Republican Omer Ahern for re-election as District 2 Grafton County Commissioner against Democrat Martha Richards. Omer has been a great advocate for reigning in Grafton County spending and keeping Grafton County property […]
