The ACLU Defends the NRA from Gov. Andrew Cuomo

The State of New York and Governor Andrew Cuomo are engaged in a campaign to encourage banks and insurance companies to divest themselves of any dealings with the National Rifle Association (NRA). Bereft of insurance or financial tools, it would become difficult if not impossible for the organization to operate. The NRA has taken the State …

Exeter NH Police Chief Arrests Resident for Social Media Comment

In a story that went wide yesterday, Exeter Police Chief William Shupe had Robert Frese arrested for an online comment in which he said: “Chief Shupe covered up for a dirty cop.” I may have my differences with the NH ACLU, but we’ve consistently agreed on one thing.

NH ACLU: A School “Walkout” is NOT Protected Speech

I wonder where this handy bit of information was when the Marxist Women’s March folks were pouring outside money into their national campaign to waste taxpayer dollars.

Liberals Lie about Guns … and frankly just about everything else

We can always count on James Veverka (on 12/19/2012 in the Laconia Daily Sun, laconiadailysun.com) to respond irrationally (hopefully he doesn’t have a gun), and suppress some, and misstate other, facts. First. No “rightwinger”, no second amendment supporter believes there should be no controls on access to guns. But, they do believe criminals who use …

Revisiting Censorship In the Wake Of “Nickel And Dimed..”

Most claims of censorship tend to focus on the presumption that any particular limitation violates our constitutional right to free speech.
