Separation of Church and State? For a Christian at a high school Graduation, but not for an Islamic footbath?

by Skip June 10, 2013

Guest Post by NH State Sen. Andy Sanborn: On Medicaid expansion, we should look before we leap

by Skip June 10, 2013

Humor – Be careful for who you ask for (Islamic Jihad version)

by Skip June 10, 2013

Several variations of this are out there as to who is to be the recipient – no matter; still brings a smile to my face!

If This Isn’t Big Brother…Hate to See who Is.

by Steve MacDonald June 10, 2013

I scraped this off a decidedly Liberal leaning forum where you typically find anti religion, anti conservative or anti-Republican smears. So has Obama the Magic Negro finally found a way to break his own spell over the average, doesn’t give a damn about much voter/observer?

Good Morning Spies!

by Steve MacDonald June 10, 2013

I just wanted to wish a hearty good morning to the NSA or IRS, or whomever is tasked with surveilling my “extremist rants.” And oh, the irony of that.  I’m an “extremist” because I think freedom and liberty demand a smaller more accountable government where the money, power, and responsibility are, preferably, kept to the […]
