Internet Doodlings – GUESS WHAT! There’s a Timothy Horrigan that lives over at TreeHugger.

by Skip July 22, 2012

You know, I am glad that Timothy Horrigan does come over and read here at the ‘Grok – and comments as well.  He’s one of the few “Liberals” that does so, so I’ll give him kudos for trying hard.  I just wish that his comments were a bit more on topic and not just deflections […]

by Skip July 22, 2012

The Lakes Region Porcupines meet at the New Hong Kong Buffet in Belmont, NH every third Saturday of the month, and this Saturday ONE of the big topics was the despicable act by a brilliant but sick, demented, mentally ill person.  Now, these folks  are rather Libertarian to full bore Libertarians (heh!  I seem to […]

Francois vs Francois – Why the French Should Hope Hollande Sees the Light, and How Socialist Nostrums Always Fail

by Mike July 22, 2012

“Those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it” Steve’s article on the similarity between the socialist policies of NH Democrats, and the quack nostrums currently being prescribed for France under Francois Hollande reminded me of 30 years ago, when another Francois – Mitterand – came to office in 1981 on a Socialist […]

by Skip July 22, 2012

OK, I’ve been REAL busy doing interviews and then taking care of the care, feeding, and placement of the videos Sidenote: which means take the video, transfer to the PC, bring it into the editing software, start chopping it up, export each question (making sure to, you know, write the question down), upload to YouTube, […]

Playing Catch-up on Winning The Future…or Whatever It’s Called This Month

by Steve MacDonald July 22, 2012

We realize that some of you are just too busy to keep up with all the things going on in the political world and to be honest, so are we.   And when it comes to having a president named Obama every day is some kind of crisis and more often than not, it’s his mouth […]

GrokTV Event-Rumney home event for Ovide Lamontagne (Candidate, NH Gov.) – Question 8: Citizens dealing with State Agencies?

by Skip July 22, 2012

Speaking of Commissioners and department heads, how about the agencies themselves?  Given our foray into Right To Know Requests to the NH Depart. of IT and Depart. of Environmental Services, I figured that I would venture a question / comment for a response: Question 8: GraniteGrok issued RTK requests against DES and DoIT for taxpayer […]

GrokTV Special Interview: Susan Olsen,NH House Candidate (Merrimack-7) – Question 11 – Live Free or Die – too harsh? Do we follow it? Are some trying to get rid of it?

by Skip July 22, 2012

This was our final question for Susan and once again, we thank her for taking valuable time in talking with GraniteGrok!  Progressives want us to pay for what they Government to do for (or to) us.  How does that square with our legacy of individualism and the idea that we have a government and not […]

GrokTV Special Interview-Rick Parent (Cand, Congress NH-CD1)-Question 7: Budget is $1T out of balance; What gets cut?

by Skip July 22, 2012

It is clear that a major part of Rick Parent‘s concern is that of the gobsmacking debt that our “leaders” (both Democrat and Republican) have run up in our names (and wallets) – $16 Trillion and now over 100% of our GDP (a “red zone” on a gauge of OK, caution, and “Danger, Will Robinson!”).  […]

by Steve MacDonald July 22, 2012

(Updated- Word has it this not a picture of Holmes being carried away as indicated.  We happily fall back on the “reported to be’s” and “ifs,” and are hurriedly filling out applications for employment opportunities at ABC news where the money and research are better funded but the reporting is not much better than this […]
