Data Point – New Hampshire is amongst the LEAST corrupt states in the country

by Skip September 8, 2013

  Corruption exists – we often look at Illinois (Governors there), Massachuesetts (Hmm, Speakers of the House, Representatives); and of, the State of Huey Long (Louisiana).  But in looking at this chart, based on the number of public officials jailed per 100,000 residents, who’da thunk that both North and South Dakota were hotbeds of public […]

Data Point – Do we need a bake sale for Dept of Defense?

by Skip September 8, 2013

Years ago, one of the Left’s favorite bumper sticker said that they would have achieved their goal when instead of schools having bake sales, the Department of Defense had to have one.  The idea was also summed up by the phrase “Make Love Not War”.  Now, education, peace, and love are nice things, important things […]

Voter Fraud: See No Evil – Investigate No Evil

by Ed Naile September 8, 2013

The more you know about voter fraud in NH the more the smell of dead fish comes to mind. Remember that “exoneration” of the clearly out-of-state campaign workers who from 2008 – 2012 were registered at NH State Senator Martha Fuller Clark’s voter fraud flophouse in Portsmouth?  Now, never say I have had an issue […]

Notable Quote – Conrad Black
