There was an article in one of the broadsheets this week that observed: A majority of NH College students leave the state after graduation. My first suspicion was that most of that majority came from outside the state.  They never lived here in the first place.  They voted here as if they lived here, but […]

Notable Quote – Tom DeWeese

by Skip April 22, 2014

“Freedom.” We use that word a lot. Do we all really know what that word means? It’s used in so many different ways. Do we understand how it is attained? Most importantly, do we understand how it is used by some to actually take freedom away?  Simply put, freedom is the ability to act without […]

And now you know why the Dems always said access to insurance and access to DOCTORS

by Skip April 22, 2014

And to think that our own US Senator Jeanne Shaheen and her sidekick US CongressCritter Carol SEIU-Porter were in on this lie gag on the American people.  Sure, we laughed at the website – that was a bonus (and, umm, it still doesn’t work on the backside either) but we also claimed “supply and demand” […]

So, just like the Progressive Obama Admin did to the nation, the Progressive Hassan Admin is doing to NH

by Skip April 22, 2014

“Under Maggie Hassan’s watch, S&P has downgraded NH’s financial outlook rating from ‘stable’ to ‘negative.’ I believe that this grading falls squarely on Governor Hassan’s inability to manage state finances. This will have dire consequences and cost ramifications for NH businesses and taxpayers. Her Status Quo mentality and failure to advance New Hampshire’s economy, on […]

Progressive view of The Proper Role of Government – and your subservience to it.

by Skip April 22, 2014

Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive  philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our […]

by Skip April 22, 2014

In the UL today, ramifications of Walt Havenstein’s abortion equivocation on CloseUP were discussed with NH Rep Kathleen Souza saying “he’s toast” due to his pro-choice stance even as he claims he is pro-life personally; the “I was for it before I was against it” argument is not going to fly for those of us who […]

The Wall Street Journal Delivers the Bad News.  We’re not getting screwed by Big Bankers, who at least pretend to make their money in the open market, we are getting screwed by government regulators who get paid with tax dollars. It is true that the very top bank executives make more in a year than […]

So what is Mayor Bloomberg getting for his $50 million anti-gun campaigns?

by Skip April 21, 2014

You know, you just can’t make this up!  First he announces his new anti-gun umbrella organization, Everytown, and it immediately gets “repurposed” immediately on social media as Rick points out here.  One would think that for $50 Mil, somebody would have thought to secure that FB page (and at least the state level ones) and […]
