Below is text taken from N.H. House Speaker William O’Brien’s Facebook page: Here’s what union-controlled government has become in New Hampshire: Union operatives are pulling my yard signs from public areas and replacing some of them with union signs.

by Skip August 14, 2012

“Choice for Republicans involves trusting the American people to handle their affairs and retirement. Choice for Democrats involves only the option to kill children, with everything else pre-packaged in one size fits all government bureaucracy.” – Erick Erickson, founder of RedState.com

Bipolar Domicile Syndrome…For Voting Purposes…

by Steve MacDonald August 14, 2012

The New Hampshire TEA Party Republican Legislature did a lot more than just eliminate the 800 Million dollar deficit Democrats willingly left behind, while writing a balanced budget, and estimating revenues that came in on target.  They also managed to repair some damage to election law in regard to domicile.

It’s A NH Democrat Bill Kennedy Kind Of Morning…This Time It’s About Tax Burden

by Steve MacDonald August 14, 2012

Bill is probably a great guy, and I’m sure he never meant to violate Department of Defense regulations by posting images of himself in uniform on a campaign web site.  But that’s not the only thing that caught my eye while I was there.  Bill is also guilty of lying by omission. You see, while […]

GrokTV Event – Seacoast Republican Women Congressional Forum – Question 5- Nationalizing Education Standards?

by Skip August 14, 2012

For the cost of our educational system at the K-12 levels, our results are deplorable.  No Child Left Behind was an attempt to “fix” that with uneven results (and unions screaming that they should not be judged or evaluated by their pupils results).  Now, Fed. Ed. Sec. Arne Duncan, with his Race To the Top, […]
