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 […]

New York’s AG has decreed that donations to non-profits over $5,000.00 be made public. Myron Magnet, writing at City Journal, had some insightful thoughts on that, then closed with this.

by Steve MacDonald December 27, 2014

by Susan Olsen February 26, 2013

Glenn Reynolds, Tennesse law professor, father of Instapundit, interviewed Russ Roberts, an economics professor at George Mason University, recently.  It’s a fairly lengthy (but very interesting) podcast and the talk shifted to discussion of a NY Slimes piece from last year on why the Constitution was really of little value to today’s hipster progressives.  To whet your […]

Response to Nancy Parsons Questions about Objections to Obama’s Gun Control Policies

by Don January 23, 2013

Perhaps other people wonder about the questions in Nancy Parson’s letter of January 18, 2013 in the Laconia Daily Sun.  (See: ) My beliefs are based on the following: True safety requires consideration of reality not wishes.
