2014 Senatorial campaign – why other states will determine the US Senate majority, not NH

I bookmarked this a few days ago (a long time in politics, but still applicable) – see where NH is? The magic number is six….we are 14th above.  Some newer polls are showing either a close or dead even race and one showed Brown with a slim lead.  Will that latter condition remain? I remain …

Epic Acts of Political Cowardice – Jeanne Shaheen, proving that in the Collective, no one is at fault

for ANYTHING at ANYTIME on ANY ISSUE: “There were 60 of us!” I missed this line when I listened to the debate on WBIN / NH1 between US Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Scott Brown.  Never, ever, ever will Progressives EVER take responsibility (er, shouldn’t THAT be a clue to the hollowness of their philosophy?) for failing programs.  …

Epic Acts of Political Cowardice – Obamacare Medicaid Expansion where NH Senate Republicans blaming other NH Senate Republicans.

Bill Whittle: a true definition of the 2nd Amendment (better than Progressives’ simplistic “guns kill!”)

That’s what we hear from Progressives – guns kill!  Thus, no one should have them.  Or “reasonable gun laws” (better translated “reasonable is what we say it is, which is no one should have them”).  No matter what you hear from the anti-Constitutional Progressives, Liberals, Socialists, Pacifists, and those that emote and not think, the …

CDC – a perfect example of an expanding bureaucracy that forgets how to do its main mission

Every bureaucracy wishes to do more and more – and public sector ones are no different.  As we have seen with the Ebola scare, the CDC is a prime example of  a Govt bureau that pretty much worked itself out of a job (when is the last time we had a real massive GERM / MICROBE …
