by Skip December 20, 2013

Lots of reporters were at the Pro-Second Amendment / Anti-Scott Brown rally last nite and the Blogline comes from a report from Politico: His coming here is calculated disrespect, just as if he went to Saudi Arabia with pork chops in his suitcase,” said Jay Simkin, a 60-something economic consultant who lives in Nashua. “If […]

Oh, one last thing from last nite – US Senator (R-NH) Al Baldasaro??

by Skip December 20, 2013

Maybe!  I didn’t get a lot of the speakers last night – hobbled by Nashua’s Mayor Donnalee Lozeau (R), there was no staging, podium, or lights (heck, no snow was supposed to be moved – hmm, it did look as if that snow moved itself).  Given the traffic and the parking, a number of the […]

Notable Quote – Jon Gabriel

by Susan Olsen December 20, 2013

“The Left started the culture war, won it resoundingly, and now they’re roaming the country shooting the wounded survivors.

Evil Preaches Tolerance…

by Steve MacDonald December 20, 2013

The conclusion of a post by Erick Erickson at Red State (re: Phil Robertson) Christians were once told they did not have to look or listen. The militant gay rights movement and the secular left will not abide by their own prescription. Those who dissent or think differently must be silenced. The members of GLAAD, […]
