“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

by Skip March 20, 2014

“the utterance of a theocratic dictator, than of a duly elected civil servant.” Philippians 4:13.  A very simple verse but one that has very deep meaning for Christians.  It is an acknowledgement that there is Someone bigger than self, a higher power.  It is a telling about that we are not as strong as we […]

It must be tax and spend day in Concord.  New Hampshire Democrats are passing new taxes, new spending, violating the State Constitution…..I’m having flashbacks to 2009 – 2010.

I think this goes in the “Let’s make up a problem to solve” file. The New Hampshire House…for clarity that means Democrats, just passed a tax on paint. Retailers will be required by law to assess this tax to be determined by the Paint-tax-Tsar on every container of interior or exterior paint that is 5 […]

by Steve MacDonald March 20, 2014
Thumbnail image for Minimum Wage Hike = Fewer Jobs, Higher Prices

We’ve talked about this.  Obama wants to kill jobs.  NH Democrats want to kill some jobs.  Make prices go up.  Reduce full-time opportunities.  Make it harder for new or unskilled people to find work.  Everyone knows what will happen, and still the Democrats persist.  They are willing to harm New Hampshire families to pad their […]

Women who carry firearms and are encouraged to learn how to use them have a significant advantage over those who have been disarmed by pro-rape Democrats and their Republican abettors.   Weight, strength, even numbers are no guarantee that a woman is an easy target for sexual assault.   She is no longer just another victim.

I Have A Pledge For You Jeanne

by Ed Naile March 20, 2014

Suddenly, NH progressives are all about pledges. That appears to be their newest marching order to prevent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen from getting the pummeling she deserves for being Barack Obama’s vote for ObamaCare – DemocratCare for those who have watched it evolve from HillaryCare. The Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers has had to listen to […]

I have always considered the word “thanks,” unless presented with sarcasm as if to say “well, thanks a lot,” to have a positive connotation, until now. Kevin Landrigan CONCORD – Thanks to deaths and resignations, the 400-member House of Representatives is down to 388 strong. Then there is the awkward,  “down to 388 Strong.” I […]
