This explains why Progressives hate Article 10 and 2A / Second Amendment

by Skip March 18, 2014

Catching up on some reading and came across this in Imprimus (Jan 2014).  While the article has to do with the idea that the TEA Party needs to go to the next level of political theory and practice to truly accomplish their goals (limited government, fiscal frugality, and Constitutional bounds), it gives an idea of […]

Parker Gilbert, who is not from around here, was told by someone in the Democrat Party that he could vote here.  In November of 2012 he did just that, voting from his dorm room at Dartmouth, in Hanover New Hampshire.  Thousands of college students have been similarly instructed by Democrat activists, elected officials, liberal professors, […]

Data Point – Low income does not mean poor

by Skip March 18, 2014

“It shows only some of the federally-funded financial supports available to an American who is a single parent, has two children and works full time at $8 an hour. While this worker has net earnings which bring in less than the federal poverty line, federal benefits intended to reduce poverty – do just that. The […]

A reminder: Jeanne Shaheen vote HOW MUCH in lockstep with Obama?

by Skip March 18, 2014

This much: The numbers range from Sen. Mark “Obamacare’s an amazing success story” Pryor at 90 percent (his Senate colleague from Arkansas voted with Obama less than 40 percent of the time) to Colorado’s Mark Udall and New Hampshire’s Jeanne Shaheen, who backed the president’s position in 99 percent of votes. Yup, she is officially […]

You don’t earn $15 / hour by doing this

by Skip March 18, 2014

A new development in the Fast Food Strike movement (to have fast food workers get a $15/hour starting wage – wrote about it here and here) being pushed by the SEIU: “wage theft”.  Simply put, companies like McDonalds are ‘stealing workers wages’ by doing what ALL companies do and the Unions are now suing them […]

Well next time, don’t get on that Democrat / OFA bus!

by Skip March 18, 2014

Stories abound about how the college kids were turned out on election day for Obama – and the down ticket Democrats as well.  Send the vans!  Send the buses!  Getting the college kids on board (literally and figuratively) for voting for Obama was a big part of their game plan and they did NOT disappoint.  […]

Sad thing is, this used to be considered normal…

by Skip March 18, 2014

Motivation, hard work, aspirations, delayed gratification, grit….all attributes that are seemingly anathema to display in the Age of Obama. (H/T: Independent Journal Review)

Would Progressives risk tossing the entre feminazi project under the bus if they thought it would save their political prospects in 2014? You betcha! Low workforce participation, job lock, part-time nation, wage stagnation, serial decline in total income.  These are not bugs, my friends, they are features of a cure for what ails us.

I wonder if Governor Maggie Hassan grasps the irony of her dig at former MA Senator Scott Brown. “It’s great to be here in Salem, straddling the border of New Hampshire and Massachusetts,” the governor said. “But enough about Scott Brown.” Maggie Hassan was born in Boston, raised in Massachusetts, went to college at Brown, […]

New Hampshire Democrats Will Be Attacking AG ‘Uncle’ Joe Foster Any Minute Now….

Remember when the New Hampshire legislature had a Republican Majority?  Good times.  Good times. Well, they wanted to lower the tobacco tax by .10 cents a pack and New Hampshire Democrats snapped like a twig.  It was irresponsible to lower that revenue.  There may have even been some angry cursing and insults.  In fact, I’m […]

Those smooth operators in the New Hampshire Senate, all the Democrats, and even the Governor have been sweet talking us with promises of sunsets we’ll never get to see because state managed expansions of ‘care’ always turns into a codependent “relationship.” Better to just walk away now.  Steer clear of the Medicaid trap.  Nullify ObamaCare […]

Notable Quote – Christopher Chantrill

by Susan Olsen March 18, 2014

“You see, liberals, a world without personal responsibility is not a Kumbaya world of fuzzy collective consensus. It is a world wrenched back in time to the rule of the patriarch or its modern derivative, the charismatic lightbringer. In the age of cities, science, markets, commerce, it fails every time it’s been tried. But you […]

On Wednesday, the House is set to vote on HB 1264, originally a housekeeping bill that would have allowed gun owners to legally carry in New Hampshire despite their home state not requiring licenses (Vermont, Arizona, etc). The bill was changed to one setting up a study commission. The duties? “The commission shall study the […]
