As always, he’s only got questions and we’ve got answers!

by Skip July 13, 2014

Dunno if I’m right, but I’m, as always, willing to play along.  And, I bet a better than .500 average to boot.  So Political Scoop’s questions (emphasis mine): When will it start to bother the major players in Washington that Scott Brown is down double digits in two polls in a row?

CNHT Annual Picnic – 2014 NH Gubernatorial Primary Candidates

by Skip July 6, 2014

As for all of the posts from the CNHT Annual Picnic, anytime you see the word “primary”, think “Republican Primary” – again, this is Old Home Day for Conservative Activists.  That said, at some point there might be a Democrat that would come to speak (and might actually get a bit more attention at the […]

CNHT Annual Picnic – The Straw Poll

We told the NH legislature to wait before passing SB319 ( a bill to establish a 25 foot no free speech buffer zone around every abortion/women’s health care facility in the state), but they didn’t listen.  Now, a Supreme Court decision on a case in Massachusetts has made SB319 a violation of first amendment rights.  Funny.  […]

Union Leader – NH needs creative solutions… It is time we start looking at our budget process in a different way. Putting a little bandage on a giant wound doesn’t heal it; it just hides the wound for a moment. That has been our state’s approach to our budget woes the past 10 years. If […]

Update – Find something else to do with your time troll!  Watching the votes scroll up by the hundreds without any new visitors volume anywhere near that was a bit more padding than I was willing to tolerate, even from Democrats.  Once you hit 5 times more votes than unique visits I had to pull […]

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 […]
