Want a concrete example of how NHListens is listening to other “Masters” rather than citizens?

by Skip February 17, 2013

Listening – or evangelizing on behalf of other Masters?  Yes, NHListens is tracking the ‘Grok as I pointed out here.  I decided to point it out because it does seem that NHListens and the Carsey Institute (two peas in the Progressive Pod and definitely not organizations exactly loving NH Traditions or the Live Free or […]

Obama’s SOTU:“They deserve a vote,”

by Skip February 17, 2013

“They deserve a vote,” he intoned during the obligatory gun control portion of his speech. “They deserve a vote,” he repeated, just in case you missed it the first time. “Gabby Giffords deserves a vote. The families of Newtown deserve a vote. The families of Aurora deserve a vote. The families of Oak Creek and […]

by Skip February 17, 2013

ICLEI is ICKY! Okay, if you haven’t heard anything about the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) also known as Agenda 21, then you may have been living in a cave. ICLEI is a United Nations sponsored organization (that should tell us something right there) which helps promote “sustainability, climate protection, and clean energy […]

We’re being followed…..again.. Welcome, NH Listens & the Carsey Institute!

by Skip February 17, 2013

It is always interesting (and sometimes, amusing) to find out who follow the ‘Grok on both FaceBook and Twitter.  These two entries were interesting, amusing, and shows that the Progressive side of the battlefield has decided that we might be a threat in some way:

My Christmas present from the Youngest came in just in time for Saturday

by Skip February 17, 2013

The Youngest gave me a slim envelope yesterday and in it was an accessory for my AR-15: Molon Labe (“Come and get them”). Molon Labe with a Gadsden Flag twist (close up after the jump)!  And just in time, for this Saturday (2/23) there is a 223 Day of Resistance rally at the NH State […]

Notable Quote: Lord Acton on Rights of Man and America

by Scott Morales February 17, 2013

Europe seemed incapable of becoming the home of free States. It was from America that the plain ideas that men ought to mind their own business, and that the nation is responsible to Heaven for the acts of State–ideas long locked in the breast of solitary thinkers, and hidden from Latin folios–burst forth like a […]

NH Listens? No They Don’t. They Tell!

by Steve MacDonald February 17, 2013

NH Listens is running around the state training “facilitators” to advance a decidedly left wing agenda.  And why not?  The ‘interim’ directer of the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire–which runs NH Listens–is not only a well connected left winger, he doesn’t even live in the granite State. He lives in Maine. And have you seen […]

About Merrimack’s Town Tax Rate

by Steve MacDonald February 17, 2013

More than a few folks in Merrimack probably had heart attacks when they saw the front page article “Council OKs 23.5 million budget” in the Merrimack Telegraph Journal.  In the second paragraph, right below the front page fold, it claimed this new budget would mean a  $5.25 increase per $1000.00 of assessed value. That would be an increase of approximately […]

Madam Pelosi, a job’s “dignity” comes from doing it right.

by Skip February 17, 2013

  Rasmussen: Even after going along with President Obama and compromising on a deal to avoid the end-of-the-year “fiscal cliff,” Congress receives good or excellent marks for its job performance from just nine percent (9%) of Likely U.S. Voters. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% give the nation’s legislators poor marks. […]

A use of the Fifth Amendment to protect the Second

by Skip February 17, 2013

US Senator Diane Feinstein and NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo have infamously said that they would be fine with an outright confiscation of citizens firearms.  We do see talk of Government officials, via either official or de facto gun registration databases, coming to demand peoples’s guns.  Some have mentioned voluntary gun buybacks (which I would be […]
