Speaking of NH GOP Chair – it sucks to be Fergus C

by Skip November 30, 2012

Heh! DOWN Fergus Cullen: For the second consecutive cycle he tried and failed at getting elected to the New Hampshire Republican State Committee. In a field of 43 candidates, the former party chairman was unable to earn enough votes at last Saturday’s Strafford County Caucus to secure one of the 38 availed slots. Ouch. I […]

A quick ditty on Electability, Power….and what often gets forgotten: Why? And what is Jennifer Horn’s answer to that?

by Skip November 30, 2012

As I mentioned here, I had a long phone call with an official in the NH GOP and I had brought up this article that was written by Mike Murphy in that paragon of Conservative Journalism: a blog at Time magazine.  He’s a Republican strategist who often appears on the Sunday morning talking head shows […]

by Skip November 30, 2012

From TaxProf Blog: The Guardian: Two-Thirds of Millionaires Left Britain to Avoid 50% Tax Rate:  In the 2009-10 tax year, more than 16,000 people declared an annual income of more than £1 million to HM Revenue and Customs.

Mandate, Shmandate. Hello There Cliff, I’m Ready To Go

by Scott Morales November 30, 2012

It seems the Republicans in Congress, that are still there, believe they’re wearing a “We held the House this past election, and all we got was this lousy T-Shirt!” T-shirt. And the wily Dems have no problem sidling up to the newly T-shirted and complementing them on its fit and trendiness, “you look fantastic!” Who […]

Breaking: Andrew Hemingway to run for NH GOP Chair

by Skip November 30, 2012

Breaking details: The once cleared table for Jennifer Horn to assume “by accolade” the NH GOP Chairmanship may have gotten a rightward tilt to it.  Former RLCNH Chair Andrew Hemingway has announced that he will be opposing Horn’s ascendancy. I have been told that I will receive more details later on this afternoon. Hmmm, the […]

Prelude to November 2010 All Over Again?

by Steve MacDonald November 30, 2012

Charles Krauthammer brings home the bacon on the White House Fiscal Cliff Deal effort to screw Republicans for nothing in return. Synopsis- Republicans are expected to detail every cut.  Democrats can just toss out a number with no details at all.  The whole deal stinks and while Obama has nothing to fear, other elected Democrats […]

Feds Close 100 Year old Business…Because They Can

by Steve MacDonald November 30, 2012

What the government wants the government gets.  Even if they have to make it up. This is the story of how the Federal government railroaded a 100 year old company, recognized as an outstanding Environmental steward by the national parks service, out of business. (more preamble here c/o Hot Air).

Un-Un Breaking News: Stacie Laughton Resigns Again

by Steve MacDonald November 30, 2012

Convicted Felon and recently elected New Hampshire House Democrat Stacie Marie Laughton has ended the roller-coaster ride since her extensive criminal history was released by the Laconia Sun and resigned…in writing….to the Secretary of State.  (Story went public, she resigned, un-resigned–sort of, then resigned again.)

With This Bunch Failure Is Always An Option

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2012

I’m torn between thinking this is just sad or that it’s just funny.  Maybe ironic is a better word? First, the NHGOP establishment power brokers (who forced Jack Kimball out) just cleared the field to make sure that the preferred, groomed, in-debted (and in debt) to them, moderate insider was the only candidate left running […]

NH GOP: And I thought a “poll tax” was illegal!

by Skip November 29, 2012

I overlooked this announcement (on which Steve is busy writing a post on as well, I see) when it first came in – someone else emailed in on this and my head whipped around.  File this “what were they thinking” OR “the Five Families were planning ahead, eh?“: Important Notice on the 2013 Annual Meeting […]

We’re going down, folks.

by Tim Condon November 29, 2012

But this time there’s going to be a documentary for the historians to study; it’s aptly named The Bubble. The movie explains the coming economic crash, including “Who caused it, who called it, and what’s next.” Included in the movie are appearances by economists, commentators, historians, and investment experts; they include Thomas E. Woods, Jr.; Jim […]

They’re not only talking about getting out of California (see below)…they’re talking escape from America. An interesting read.

Blood and Water – The Return of Democrat Rule in New Hampshire

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2012

Skip broke the news (on the Grok) about New Hampshire State Government’s department heads making budget requests that would increase state spending by 26% in 2013.  If you had any delusions about who or what state agencies represent, you just got your answer. It ain’t you.  It’s them. In the current economy, with no regard […]

Vote For My Girl, Or I’ll Turn Ugly

by Mike November 28, 2012

Just when you thought the skullduggery in the NHGOP couldn’t get any worse, the establishment tipped its hand spectacularly. First the history: When Jack Kimball surprised the establishment and won the chairmanship in 2011, and scored a small victory for conservatism, they couldn’t stop him getting the job, but they could certainly make it impossible […]

Decay Point: Dissolve Detroit…

by Scott Morales November 28, 2012

Desolation, desperation, and delusion have swept over the Motor City for decades, constantly wearing down the streets, buildings, and the people.  So, it comes as no surprise that talks of its dissolution ring out through the desiccated city like the hollow, rusty clang of a muffler finally falling from a car, resting on cinder blocks, […]

As Obama continues his quest to “perfect us” – our food is next

by Skip November 28, 2012

Obama: “and a union that could be and should be perfected over time. “ From the Washington Examiner comes news that while Moochella has “improved” our kids school lunches, he’s wanting to “perfect” our eating habits – or pay for it: “I think there is no question that the way Americans eat and what Americans […]

REMEMBER! According to the Left, only Whites can be racists….

by Skip November 28, 2012

SURELY this guy isn’t discriminating against Jews, right (emphasis mine)? Even when those of non-pallor color just blatantly out themselves? In an email dated Monday, Mr. Lopez-Pierre said he is calling for a meeting to be held in January to “discuss the potential damage to the political empowerment of the black and Hispanic community if […]

Is Kelly Ayotte Just Another White Meat Racist?

by Steve MacDonald November 28, 2012

It is quite obvious from these remarks by New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte that she prefers white meat at Thanksgiving, why else try to put a hold on the nomination of UN Embarrasador Susan Rice as a potential replacement to Hillarity Clinton? Yeah, she has these facts about Rice misleading the American people on Benghazi […]

Data Point – The Rich DO pay more in taxes

by Skip November 28, 2012

All Obama and the Dems can say is that certain folks don’t pay their fair share in taxes.  I know that there are some socialist / Progressives that would be fine with taking it all after a certain point (“you should not be able to make more than $5 million per year!”) and a high […]

Laughton is disappointed, and states that no one asked her to resign, but that she was asked to consider all the things that have been presented. Call me cynical but if […]

Democrats – rigging the race card for 150 years….

by Skip November 28, 2012

This whole Rice affair shows the absolutely disgusting double standard that the Democrats have towards racism.  Their protestations are nothing more than just another political tool – they could really care less about real rascism, for if they did, they’d never throw the race card except for when it really was a case of racism.

The NH State Dept heads have just placed the crack candy of Progressive politicians in front of Guv-elect Maggie Hassan – what’s she gonna do?

by Skip November 27, 2012

Is this a sucker’s bet?  That Maggie is already set to ratchet up the spending (and the taxes to support them) – and this is the excuse she’ll use (emphasis mine)? CONCORD – Gov.-elect Maggie Hassan issued an upbeat but sobering call for agency heads to lower their expectations as hearings on a new, two-year […]
