Johnny can’t read? Janie can’t add? Well, here’s another reason why.

by Skip June 19, 2013

My feeling is that the most significant factor behind a student’s success in school are engaged parents.  I remember Mom having me sit at the kitchen table and watching me do homework AFTER she had gone over the material herself.  It wasn’t until I hit subjects like finite match, calculus, and programming and AP biology […]

Blogline of the day: Ted Cruz asks a question of Obama about Gun Control in Syria

by Skip June 19, 2013

“Anyone know if President Obama intends to perform background checks on the Syrian rebels before providing them weapons?” Once again, a great question.  If legal, law abiding Citizens of the United States must undergo background checks in order to exercise a Constitutional Right, why is Obama so willing just to GIVE weapons to citizens of […]

DC “Audit the IRS” rally – some pics

by Skip June 19, 2013

It’s a Wednesday.  A work day.  Short, short notice.  Still, quite a few people and a showing for the TEA Party as a movement again.  No, not the HUGE rallies that we saw BEFORE the IRS started their targeting of conservative groups (and religious and educational and….well, anyone holding social or political values other than […]

Hypocrisy for Democrats 101: Bu, bu, bu, but that works for us for Guns….”If it only saves one live”

by Skip June 19, 2013

…how DARE you try to use our tactic of emotional blackmail for abortions! I have to admit, that was a GREAT question and well posed.  It shows that much of the “faux outrage” of Democrats on many issues is exactly that: false and demogogic.  They are tailored to pull at emotion instead of reason.  And […]

by Susan Olsen June 19, 2013

The Live Free or Die Alliance Needs to Update its Candidate Survey

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2013

The Live Free or Die Alliance, purported to be a non-partisan digital playground for news, culture, and politics, has a survey for candidates to complete that it then posts for the benefit of wandering Internet travelers who stumble into their little web oasis.  It is spartan but efficient and I take no issue with the […]

Windham School Board Votes To Restore Modified Version of Dodgeball

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2013

The Windham School board got national attention in March when it banned Dodgeball. After some ‘study’ and a good deal of opposition to the decision, the board has voted to bring the games back, with different names, while giving students the option to participate or not.  Alternate, suitable activities will be provided by the phys-ed […]

About that recent Supreme Court decision…

by Tim Condon June 19, 2013

…the one by Justice Scalia that invalidated the Arizona election law? The one that’s an utter disaster for clean and honest elections? The one that lets Democrats use their vote fraud machines like ACORN to subvert the voting process in America? Well get this: We won. Here’s why.

Why New Hampshire? Ummm…because Detroit is the future of America?

by Tim Condon June 19, 2013

Detroit is a perfect example of what the future of America is going to look like.  We live in a nation that is rotting, decaying, drowning in debt and racing toward insolvency.  Already there are dozens of other cities across the nation that are poverty-ridden, crime-infested hellholes just like Detroit is, and hundreds of other communities […]

Why New Hampshire….

by Tim Condon June 19, 2013

From yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, When the Culture Changed: “When I returned to China after the Tchaikovsky competition [in Russia], the culture had changed. Mao Zedong was promoting the the idea that music and […]

On House Journals And Shurtleff’s and Rollo’s And Progress Now

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2013

Rick does all the heavy lifting here on the addition of the Bloomberg Bus Anti-Gun Rally into the New Hampshire House Journal.  I think this might set a precedent that will have reps putting all kinds of crap in the journal that does not belong there.  I am not an avid reader of the document […]

Ms. Open Carry

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2013

Breitbart has a nice post up (be sure to read some comments) about Heidi Yewman, whom (I guess?) got famous for vehemently opposing Starbucks open carry gun policy.  Well she decided to follow her state’s rules, get herself a Glock,  and write about “what it’s like” to carry a gun on her hip for 30 […]

The Taser

by Rick Olson June 19, 2013

“Don’t tase me, bro…”  —Andrew Meyer It is going to be interesting to see how the lame stream media paints this…There is one important aspect that should not go unnoticed here. ALL of the folks that are armed (and there were many, myself included) never interfered in this incident. There was plenty of unhappiness, outrage […]
