EMail Doodlings – OK, putting this up a couple days late.

by Skip November 7, 2012

But actually, it turned out to be a bit prescient, as in two races here in NH in my mind (Frank Guinta & Bob Burns), what I warned about came true: This may not sit well…. It seems to me that the full bore / hard core Libertarians (“HCLs”) on this list (which, after all […]

A sign for the times – and for the near future time?

by Skip November 7, 2012

I just don’t know if Obama knows – or considers it a feature: Unemployment at 8%, $16+Trillion in debt, $1 Trillion + annual deficit, GDP growth is the worst recovery is vapid, the Rule of Law being ignored faster and faster…. It’s fine. (H/T: Instapundit)

Stellar Results here in NH, NH GOP. Who takes the responsibility? Who should?

by Skip November 7, 2012

I really got more involved in politics in the 2005/2006 time frame – not a long time compared to a lot of folks but certainly more than most.  The Republican rout in 2006 kicked it into a higher gear – it had been obvious that the local (and State) Republicans trying to head to the […]

Notable Quote: Government As A Protector From Natural Evils

by Steve MacDonald November 7, 2012

The ideas of religion and government are closely connected; and whilst we receive government as a thing necessary, or even useful to our well-being, we shall in spite of us draw in, as a necessary, though undesirable consequence, an artificial religion of some kind or other.  To this the vulgar will always be voluntary slaves; […]

Sifting The New Hampshire Rubble For Small Victories

by Steve MacDonald November 7, 2012

New Hampshire Democrats appear to have taken advantage of Judge John Lewis’ decision to scrap the domicile rules.  The end result was that busload after busload of out of state students were ferried to the polls to vote in New Hampshire.  They killed the constitutional amendments.  They elected a Democrat governor.  And they gave New […]

National Media Theme: Voting Block Is Becoming Less White

by Rick Olson November 7, 2012

Imagine a judicial nominee said ‘my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman.’ Wouldn’t they have to withdraw? New racism is no better than old racism. —Newt Gingrich The vote is in. Obama is still President. The Republican establishment got exactly what they wanted: Romney as a candidate; a losing candidate.

Barack Obama, Ben Ghazi, And Warren Women Walk Into a Bar….2.0

by Steve MacDonald November 7, 2012

It occurs to me that the Obama Administration has a huge problem ahead of it. With Republicans retaining the US House, the various investigations will proceed unhindered.  New ones will begin.  And the idea of asking uncomfortable questions about the scope of Executive power should be brought to the fore. The US House has significant […]

We Fight On. There’s No Such Thing As A Lost Cause…

by Scott Morales November 7, 2012

“If we take the widest and wisest view of a Cause, there is no such thing as a Lost Cause, because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause. We fight for lost causes because we know that our defeat and dismay may be the preface to our successors’ victory, though that victory itself […]

And I was Hoping for a Day Off…

by Steve MacDonald November 7, 2012

Nothing tastes quite like defeat but nothing creates blog material like Democrats.  (I’d have preferred the day off but that was apparenlty not meant to be.) So here we go again.  I expect the 2016 election to start any moment now… By the way.  Some libertarians are taking credit for the GOP not being able […]
