Yesterday I observed that there was a high probability that Republican Executive Councilor Chris Sununu was going to vote to fund Planned Parenthood retroactively with your taxpayer dollars.

Chris Sununu’s words are, IMHO, a bit strange

by Skip March 27, 2016

Now that the NH FITN Prez Wannabe Beauty Contest is now long gone, we can start turning our attentions to what matters: NH (e.g., “screw DC, save NH”).  That certainly means it’s time to start watching and evaluating NH specific races which certainly includes the Governor one.  Ann Marie Banfield has an extensive email list […]

“T.S. Eliot once said, “Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm – but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to […]

Executive Councilor Chris Sununu has voted to fund Planned Parenthood in the past so it is not unreasonable to think he’d do so in the future.  That is until recent revelations about strategic organ farming by its abortion doctors became common knowledge.
