We Know What You Are, Ma’am. Now We’re Just Haggling Over the Price!

by Mike September 30, 2012

The LameStream Media and their accomplices do not like it when they themselves become the object of real news reporting. Methinks the Old Gray Lady doth protest too much. Indeed, with the reputations of the formerly trusted polling firms in tatters, and the traditional ‘news’ outlets being exposed as merely ‘Democrats with bylines‘, they are […]

Democrat Values Vs. TEA Party Values: Technocrats or elected officials – who should actually govern?

by Skip September 30, 2012

Is rule by an unelected, unaccountable, and unasailable Administrative State elite a NH Value, or a Democrat one?  The history of NH is one of local control by locally elected officials, one shared by TEA Party folks.  They WANT to elected their officials that would then govern – and via their votes, the electorate would […]

Democrat Values Vs. TEA Party Values – Part Deuce (the middle class are ALL Unionists??)

by Skip September 30, 2012

Steve has an excellent start on how NH Democrats are trying to redefine authentic New Hampshire values to match the values located in the NH Democrat Platform (and Don has a nice essay as well).  “The heck, you say!” might be going through your mind.  But hey, that bastion of Liberal and Progressive power, the […]

How to start a Fight – Part 4

by Skip September 30, 2012

One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift… The next year, I didn’t buy her a gift. When she asked me why, I replied, “Well, you still haven’t used the gift I bought you last year!” And that’s how the fight started…..

Democrat Values Vs. TEA Party Values

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2012

The Entire New Hampshire Democrat party is running against the TEA Party.  They claim that they stand for New Hampshire values, not TEA Party values.  Well I can see why Democrats would object to TEA Party values but are they sure they can lay claim to New Hampshire Values? For the novices in the audience […]

LameStream Media Skew-ered by Their Own Poll Bias

by Mike September 30, 2012

For a long time now, Pete DaTechGuy has been saying of the Democrats: ‘Ride right through them, they’re as demoralized as hell!‘, and Rush Limbaugh has been talking about biased polls oversampling Democrats. In addition, Rasmussen has been tracking the changes in voter registrations, and Dean Chambers over at QStar News has been using Rasmussen’s […]

What does the TEA Party want?

by Don September 30, 2012

They say, “If you’re taking flak, you’re over the target.”  Thus the TEA Party, whose common sense demands for fiscal responsibility and constitutionally limited government are shared by most Americans, is attacked by people who most likely never attended a TEA Party meeting or understood TEA Party documentation. Thousands of TEA Party groups and millions […]

Cardinal Dolan Teaches “The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” to the Democrats

by Mike September 29, 2012

After the Democrats had dug themselves a hole, by first deciding to hold an Islamic Jumah at the DNC, and piling on by Obama refusing to have Cardinal Dolan say a prayer at the event before relenting, and then the shameful exclusion of references to God and Jerusalem from the Party Platform, and even more […]

Notable Quote: Adam Smith

by Steve MacDonald September 29, 2012

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their own interest.  We address ourselves, not to their humanity, but to their self love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages.  Nobody but a beggar chooses to […]

“Hello There, Voter!”

by Tim Condon September 29, 2012

This is really funny. Michele and I went to a great movie yesterday afternoon with Bruce Willis in it (Looper). When we came out, I found a little…sticker on my van’s driver-side window. You know, one of those little Post-It notes you use in the office? Here it is….

As the people of California destroy their state…

by Tim Condon September 29, 2012

…could there be a place for their escaping businesses in New Hampshire? Read an interesting book review of “Crazifornia: Tales from the Tarnished State — How California is Destroying itself, and Why it Matters.” (As is often the case, the commentary following the article is even more enlightening than the review itself.) (h/t to Instapundit.)

“Promised Land” – It’s Fracking Paid for in Part By Arab Oil & Gas Interests

by Steve MacDonald September 28, 2012

About Uber-leftist Matt Damon’s new film about the evil American oil and gas industry… A new film starring Matt Damon presents American oil and natural gas producers as money-grubbing villains purportedly poisoning rural American towns. It is therefore of particular note that it is financed in part by the royal family of the oil-rich United […]

Terrie Norelli and Sylvia Larsen: Jealous!?

Late in the 2007 session, when Democrats controlled the the entire New Hampshire State Government for the first time in 95 years,  then House Speaker Terri “Billion Dollar Deficit’ Norelli and Senate President Sylvia Larsen, figured the beginning of a recession was a great time to add a $72,000.00 bathroom remodel on to the backs […]

Notable Quote(s): James Fenimore Cooper – Double Tap!

by Steve MacDonald September 28, 2012

“Liberty, like equality, is a word more used than understood.  Perfect and absolute liberty is as incompatible with the existence of society, as equality of condition.” And… “If newspapers are useful in overthrowing tyrants, it is only to establish a tyranny of their own.” – James Fenimore Cooper

Ask Carol Shea-Porter About Tapping Into Wireless Left-Wing Hypocrisy

by Steve MacDonald September 28, 2012

Ask Carol Shea-Porter, well–ask any New Hampshire Democrat actually, about warrant-less wire taps.  Remember those?  The Democrats got all wound up about them under a previous president, but lets be honest; it was not because they really gave a damn about your rights or your privacy. They got wound up because they viewed it as […]

She’s Baaaaaacccckkkk!

by Steve MacDonald September 28, 2012

Carol Shea-Porter (Sheep-Porter, SEIU-Porter, Shea-Pelosi, Clown-Porter,  etc), whose claim to fame is that she could have voted with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time had she not missed 2% of the votes, is dutifully regurgitating the party line in New Hampshire in her 2012 effort to earn another two year-long conjugal visit with your wallet–She […]

by Skip September 27, 2012

After all, Democrats view everyone (almost) as a victim, right? And horrors – it is all on the Dems that have created this new victim gaggle!  And they state that 30 million folks will NOT be covered (er, wasn’t that the whole point of this boondoggle?) and 6 million (2 million more than planned – […]

I rear-ended a car this morning…the start of a REALLY bad day! The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!! He looked up at me and said ‘I am NOT Happy!’ So I said, ‘Well, which one ARE you then?’ That’s how the fight started.
