Welcome to real world economics!

by Skip March 28, 2014

From the Laconia Citizen: County admins work to pay health costs LACONIA — The Belknap County administration and department heads presented a working budget plan to commissioners on Thursday that, in many departments, takes money from wages to pay health care costs… Now, the rest of it is behind a paywall, so I’m not going […]

Notable Quote – Fr. Robert Sirico

by Skip March 28, 2014

Many of the confusions of our age rest on a loss of certain crucial distinctions. The most apparent is the distinction between rights and privileges. John Hospers, my philosophy professor at the University of Southern California, used to say we have undergone a “rights inflation.” As in a monetary inflation, the value of the common […]

Well, I “wonder” whose missing from this picture?

by Skip March 28, 2014

This morning, I saw this photograph on the Concord Monitor front page – Governor Maggie Hassan ALL smiles as she signs the legislation that implements Obama’s Medicaid Expansion: Democrat, Democrat, Democrat, Democrat – ringed by all Democrats.  But nary a pixel of any of the real folks that made it happen: NH State Senator Chuck […]

Screw It I’m Gardening!

Thumbnail image for Screw It I’m Gardening!

I have considered shooting video of me fertilizing ‘my lawn.’  It would encompass a camera recording me as I walk a spreader across the yard, with little green and off-white pellets skittering across the top of a 12 inch pack of ice and snow. Fertilizer is kind of expensive, though, and I don’t feel like […]

More of Oblunder’s faux toughness on display. The other day he was preaching to the Western Europeans about Gay Rights, yeah that’s tough, real courageous. Kind of like preaching the wonders and merits of a meatless diet to a flock of vegetarians. Big man. Let’s see you use those Brunswick 16’s you swing around the […]

FBI Scrubs Southern Povery Law Center

By its own definition the Southern Poverty Law Center has always been a hate group. One it excluded from its own list of so-called hate groups.  A list that was nothing more than a ledger to which the Haters at the SPLC added whomever they ideologically disagreed–or with whom their benefactors disagreed. Whether the list […]

More evidence that the Orange One needs to be removed. From TheDC   (all emphasis mine). Some conservatives were up in arms over a hurried Thursday vote on the so-called “doc fix” for Medicare, which some felt leadership tried to slip by them, after it passed in a thirty-second voice vote with very few members […]

The NH State Senate has passed a hike in the gas tax which is guaranteed to pass through the NH House like s**t through a goose.  This will extract an estimated 32 million dollars out of the New Hampshire economy, affecting tourism, jobs, and wages. So as we approach November, in a year expected to […]

Can someone point me to the sections in the NH Republican Party Platform that support Obamacare, Common Core, excessive gas taxes, gun regulation, and are anti Right to Work? If not, can someone please forward the platform to the Republican Reps and Senators that voted for such legislation? Also from Aaron… “Had great meetings in […]

Yee of No Faith At All

Leland Yee deserves the coverage he has gotten here and elsewhere because he is a typical ruling class Democrat.  “We” must have laws that limit you, but I can do whatever the hell I want.  And it appears he did.  Bribery. Influence peddling.  There’s a hint of drug trafficking in there, and of course gun-running. […]
