Voter Fraud – what’s the over/under that it is happening here?

by Skip April 30, 2014

Wait for it……it’s not a home.  Wait for it…..it isn’t just a few!  From Dr. Rich Swier: (emphasis mine, reformatted) Florida: 3,000 Voter Registrations List a UPS Store as a Residence Voter Fraud? If they’re not catching the easy stuff, what else are they “missing”? Are some of Florida’s Supervisors of Elections skirting the law? […]

Best Interest – for who?

by Skip April 30, 2014

From the Union Leader concerning the MET / Hospital tax ruled unconstitutional (emphasis mine, reformatted): CONCORD — Senate President Chuck Morse says a short-term fix is needed to address a recent court ruling that the state’s tax on hospitals is unconstitutional.  Speaking Tuesday at a Senate Ways and Means Committee meeting, the Salem Republican said […]

“reflects the majority opinion of the United States”

by Skip April 30, 2014

I thought this was rather amusing concerning the cloture vote (a vote to stop debate) in the Senate on raising the minimum wage : White House press secretary Jay Carney accused Republican lawmakers of voting “contrary to the wishes of the American people.” “The fact is there is a bill that was voted on today in […]

Data Point – Economy screeches to a stop?

by Skip April 30, 2014

  I do have to laugh at the speculation from the notorious butt kissing CNN over the poor performance of the US Economy: The U.S. economy stalled in the first three months of 2014, but don’t panic yet as it’s probably just the winter weather effect. Yeah – it was a rough winter – just […]

Ed Naile joins us as a guest to discuss bypassing the old dinosaur media to get the message out about Voter fraud. How it is with the AG’s Office, the Election Law Commission–they wont help us; and what the people actually want, including most Democrats – Clean Elections! That and a lot more – Check […]

I will not apologize for my Values

by Skip April 30, 2014

Why should I apologize for my Faith?  Why are my Family Values wrong?  And what is so dang wrong with having our NH Government govern within the bounds of the NH Constitution?  And why do our national politicians ignore the rather clear values enumerated in the US Constitution when they come up with laws that […]

Another Brookline, NH Democrat Talking Point Busted

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2014

Another Brookline, NH Democrat Talking Point Busted…  “Guns don’t kill people, Democrat Gun Free Zones kill People.” The only place in town where a mass shooter might possibly have some expectation of success in Kennesaw, Georgia, (where every adult is required by law to own a firearm) is the FedEx facility in town which FedEx […]

I’ve been mighty busy today so thanks to everyone, and there are a few of you, who emailed me to give me the news.  SB 244 is dead. SB 244 was an abomination disguised as a mental health bill, meant to appease the left’s illogical and incoherent hatred of the right to self-defense.  I was […]

You Want To “Give America A Raise?”

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2014
Thumbnail image for You Want To “Give America A Raise?”

The Democrats would like to Give America A Raise.  That was what Obama promised in his state of the union. When Democrats feel the need to do something, their first act is to plunder someone else to pay for it, whatever it is.  But there are plenty of other ways to give America a raise. […]

Once again, a “Gun Free Zone”

by Skip April 29, 2014

The arrow points to a “Gun Free Zone” sign at the FedEx facility in Kennesaw, GA.  It looks like the criminal who wounded 6 others (allegedly with Joe Biden’s choice of weapon – a shotgun) before killing himself really obeyed that sign. (H/T: Big Government)

Sustainable Communities Initiative – “we’re all in this together and you WILL love it!”

by Skip April 29, 2014

The nuance of this “WILL” is more of a command versus describing a level of future emotions to come.  Sustainable Communities Initiative – the Federal Government’s way (e.g. HUD, EPA, DOT) to federalize local zoning ordinances to result in their idea for a more “efficient” society (remember, Progressives are all about “efficient” societies – planned […]

Susan Myrick from the Civitas Institute joins us from North Carolina where they recently passed sweeping election law reform. And you know it’s good because the Democrats hate it. We talk about the Interstate Voter Registration cross check program, the confirmed double voters, the tens of thousands of probable double voters, and other ‘facts’ that […]

“America” – the trailer; America’s haters in their own words

by Skip April 29, 2014

The film, D’Souza says, seeks to “answer the central moral challenge of America’s critics, which is that America’s greatness is based on theft, plunder and oppression.” Which, I believe, includes Obama – why else does he go around the world apologizing to them for the actions of the US?  Why else would he have said, […]

You think Environmentalists will let them get away with this?

by Skip April 29, 2014

I don’t think so, given that environmentalists want that “pristine, noble savage environment for us all – nothing nowhere for nobody”: The Energy Department released a report Tuesday identifying streams ripe for hydropower development in hopes of meeting an Obama administration goal of doubling electricity from that source by 2030.  The Oak Ridge National Laboratory […]

One Good Survey Deserves Another

by Ed Naile April 29, 2014

The, let me correct myself, OUR children in middle school in Bedford were assigned a survey to complete. Of course Bedford being a liberal, enlightened public school the survey asked about minors and their ideas about sex. You knew it would, right? One question about this “survey” would be this. Who was it really for? […]

New Hampshire Public School Drop Out Rates Soar Under Governor Hassan

Thumbnail image for New Hampshire Public School Drop Out Rates Soar Under Governor Hassan

A national organization that examines public school drop out rates has just graded New Hampshire.  We got an 86% (UL-Secret hand shake required).  That might sound good until you recall that Governor Maggie Hassan’s predecessor claimed the rate had dropped below 1%.  This means that under Maggie Hassan, Drop out rates have skyrocketed. (Why aren’t […]

This is timely, because I am polishing up a post titled “The Battle of Competing Resentments” that plays well with the real world example of Carl DeMaio.  DeMaio is running for congress.  He’s started and sold two businesses.  He has been elected to his city council.  He has the kind of pull-yourself up life-story most […]

I’ve invited Kevin on GrokTALK! at least twice (here and here) so it seemed only fair to return the favor.  Kevin has a Nashua Cable Access program called ‘Discovering Possibilities‘ and he invited me on to talk a bit about the Bundy Ranch, courageous advocacy, community building and local control, and a number of other […]

Toyota is moving from California to Texas

by Skip April 28, 2014

And so did my company just a bit ago! Yeah California – you moved a company that US-based itself in California since it came here from Japan in the 1950’s.  I guess the mounting taxes and regulations made it easy to hear the siren sound of Gov. Rick Perry’s call for a more business friendly environment […]

Someone should ask Ann (eeee) Kuster why Nanc (eeee) Pelos (eeee) is fundraising for her… (I wonder if it is the ‘eeee’ sound.  You know ‘Eeeee,’ as in Benghazi?) Now, Speaker Boehner and national Republicans are ready to relentlessly flood New Hampshire airwaves with nasty attacks against her. If we want to win this race, […]

Course Description The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it’s very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really […]

Harrell! Can you ask Jeanne Shaheen this question about Obamacare for us?

by Skip April 28, 2014

Yes, Harrell Kirstein, that would be you.  Former Flack for the NH Dem Party, then for Organizing for Obama America Action, and then both.  Now, on a “leave of absence”, he’s over at US Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s campaign for re-election this year.  Thus, you are well suited (in a variety of ways) to answer this […]

“Depends on our education…”

by Skip April 28, 2014

“Our liberty depends on our education, our laws, and habits . . . it is founded on morals and religion, whose authority reigns in the heart, and on the influence all these produce on public opinion before that opinion governs rulers.”    – Fisher Ames  (do you know who is is?*  After the jump) Every time […]

There was plenty to talk about the BLM trying to grab more land in Texas and Oklahoma, and what those states had to say about it.  As an afterthought I had to wonder–just now as I write this–with all this land grabbing going on…is there someone at BLM named Putin, or perhaps Vladimir? This leads […]

Who Is Trying To Buy the Senate to Get a “Special Break?”

I can’t help thinking that the  Democrat “big oil is trying to buy the senate thing” is an opportunity for us to make a very important point about the fundamental flaws in Democrat thinking about energy and special breaks. First, we ought to be able to agree that any business or individual that is taxed […]
