I’ve been having an invigorating debate on Facebook with Pam Manney about some candidates running as Republicans in Goffstown.  I like Pam, but I think we’re just going to have to disagree on a few things.  She seems to think I am making claims without evidence, particularly with regard to candidate Barbara Griffin.  I guess […]

So, why do Democrats want the AFP ad that is Zandra Rice-Hawkin’s fave silenced??

by Skip February 26, 2014

Democrats hate alternative ideas – and time after time we have seen their efforts to silence their opponents.  Steve briefly addressed her trite concern here and in the comment section, a commenter named “eastergrass” put up a paltry demonstration of Progressive parley in trying to turn the tables on us.  That’s the problem with Progressives; […]

Zandra Rice Hawkins Doth Protest Too Much

by Steve MacDonald February 25, 2014

Zandra Rice Hawkins has taken a sudden concern with regard to political labels.  She thinks that recent AFP political ads in which the stories of two women who happen to be Republicans, should have made that clear up front.  OK.
