by Skip April 30, 2017

Yesterday at the Rally for Jerry, I said the above to a prominent GOP activist here in NH when she said “not to worry” in that the DC GOPers will get the job done and repeal Obamacare.  I thought she’d about fall off her chair – she knows I don’t kid about such things.  I […]

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2017

Good. (UL) Gov. Chris Sununu has taken a hard line against any pay raises in new collective bargaining for five unions that represent more than 13,000 state workers.

Killing People “Legally”

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2017

Arkansas went on a capital punishment binge recently. They tried to execute eight death row inmates in eleven days because some of the drugs they use were going to expire and they may not be able to get more. Apparently, the companies that make the drugs don’t want them used for lethal injections. All of the major […]

by Don April 29, 2017

Teachers prevented mass casualties by suspending five-year-old Caitlin Miller for making shooting motions with a crooked stick and four-year-old pre-school student Hunter Crowe for having a “shotgun bullet” (aka a fired 22 bullet shell casing) he got from his police officer grandfather.  Note that while children can’t be taught “The Ten Commandments” or “Love your […]

Muslim Values and Assimilation

by Don April 29, 2017

It’s often said, “Islam is a religion of peace.”  However, the relevant question related to American, especially immigration and refugee, policies is:  Are Muslim (leaders and followers) beliefs, values, goals, and behaviors compatible with American society or do they jeopardize the peace, prosperity, freedoms, and even lives of American citizens?                Millions of Muslim refugees […]

Local Groups Admit They are in League with Communism

by Steve MacDonald April 29, 2017

If Tea Party activists marched with Klan members that would suggest an affinity or affiliation as damning as any. And so it should be with groups that March in celebration of May Day. A number of local groups are sponsoring or participating in May Day marches in New Hampshire. That should associate them ideologically with the […]

Govt: let’s buy cars so NO ONE will use them!

??? Am I out of the mainstream?

by Skip April 28, 2017

As my 8th grade French teacher used to admonish us: traduisez s’il vous plait! It features first-year student Andy Spalletta, who considers “nonbinary” a term favored by “mainstream society”: Spalletta identifies as demi-gray, genderqueer panromantic. For Spalletta, this means they might be sexually attracted to someone as gray-sexual until they have a demi-sexual partnership with […]

From the “It’s settled SCIENCE!” folder – salt

by Skip April 28, 2017

Higher sodium intake associated with lower blood pressure. You read that right. Wait.  WHAT??  You mean I have deprived myself (except on French fries and corn on the cob) all these years for nothing (reformatted, emphasis mine)? In another blow against decades of accepted medical wisdom, one of the most prestigious, long-running studies reports that […]

Too bad we don’t have enough adults on campuses like him right now

by Skip April 28, 2017

University of California Berkeley is the “fabled” home of the free speech movement back in the 60s.  Nowadays, not so much as we’ve seen the political correctness/cultural Marxism reach its nadir with respect to LIMITING that same concept.  You know, some dribble about offense, safe spaces, and oppression except it hasn’t stopped at just debate […]

Democrats Embrace Fascism Openly

by Steve MacDonald April 27, 2017

“Protesters” who resort to violence (or threats of violence) to prevent the public expression of opinions with which they disagree are fascists even when they have labeled themselves as anti-fascists. Democrats who refuse to speak against this, are fascist sympathizers or fascists themselves.

Data Point – Democrat College Students are the least tolerant on campus

At least, if that campus is located at Dartmouth here in my “Life Free or Die” State.  Apparently, these Democrats would rather have their roommates die instead of having them as, you know, roommates.

And on the 72 degrees, SUVs, et al.  $65 million for a book deal and luxuriating on a megayacht and in the Polynesian islands. Enough money?  Fine for me but not for thee.  “Fat cat bankers” indeed. (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

Full-Day Kindergarten: NH Republicans have lost their minds

by Kimberly Morin April 26, 2017

Yesterday, the House Education Committee passed a ridiculous full-day kindergarten bill that actually increased the amount Governor Sununu wanted to spend from $9 million per year to over $14 million per year. The amendment was brought forth by ‘Republican’ Terry Wolf and replaces Senate Bill 191 (SB 191) completely. The amendment is actually House Bill […]
