In New Hampshire, Only the Illusion of GOP Control of State Government

by Op-Ed February 10, 2018

By Ed Mosca On paper, the GOP controls every branch of State government in New Hampshire except the judiciary. But the reality is that in the aggregate the State has moved leftward despite nominal GOP control of the political branches. I discussed how Governor Sununu has moved the State leftward in this post, but there is […]

Reciprocating Disagreement

by Ed Naile February 10, 2018

In New Hampshire, there is a so-called right of a non-resident to vote in our state, while keeping an out-of-state driver’s license. That unconstitutional right, Guare v. NH, has never been established in any law enacted by the NH Legislature, as has been the case with the law regarding reciprocating agreements for driver’s licenses.

Quick Thought – Government generally hates competition

by Skip February 10, 2018

Just like I railed on NH State Rep Sean Morrison here, a quick thought on NH’s bureaucrats disliking competition in the “wine & spirits” marketplace as they seek to stifle any competition to their Power.  A Snippet (reformatted, emphasis mine): Some wine lovers who look forward to getting new vintages in the mail would be […]

Guest Op-Ed taken from the Concord Monitor

by Skip February 10, 2018

By noted attorneys, Gilles Bissonnette (ACLU) and Mark Sisti (defense attorney).  If only our Legislators actually read and adhered to both the Letter and the Spirit of our Constitutions….sigh….this piece of legislation, “Marsey’s Law”, would have been ITL’d (Inexpedient to Legislate) right from the get-go (reformatted, emphasis mine): On Tuesday, the New Hampshire Senate held […]

The Conservative Conscience

by Steve MacDonald February 10, 2018

Here’s another podcast from Stitcher Radio. It’s a more formal high-quality product brought to us by crtv. The Conservative Conscience with Daniel Horowitz. I highly recommend this episode.

Tales from the BudComm – a disturbing issue with the Moderator

by Skip February 10, 2018

UPDATE: The name of the unregistered vote is Jeanin Onos. She is, from what I understand, going to mount a write-in candidacy.  Which, I am pleasantly pleased to say, is that if there is a Conservative in Gilford that wishes to do the same, you now have the same possibility.  We’d be mightly obliged and certainly […]

by Skip February 10, 2018

Steve correctly singled out the 21 RINOs that decided that a paid Family / Medical Leave (via HB628) is a Proper Role of Government.  One of them, Sean Morrison (bottom row, second from the left (heh!  Left – it fits!) decided to visit the ‘Grok and call us out. That would be NH State Rep […]

Noteable Quote – Prof. Don Boudreaux

The banner headline in the print edition of today’s Wall Street Journal would have been more revealing and no less accurate had it stopped after the first three words. (H/T: Cafe Hayek)
