Notable Quote – Mark Steyn

by Susan Olsen April 6, 2015

“It is a small step from a citizenry that no longer knows how it should act to a citizenry that no longer knows whether or if it can act, and from there to a citizenry that can no longer act.” – Mark Steyn

Beer Breeds Bizarre Bedfellows: Me and Maggs at the Brewery

Never let it be said that by default I’m disagreeable with those with whom I disagree.  Sure, if the opponent is a vile, loathsome cretin, I’ll let them know in very colorful piquing terms.  But for the most part I’m not the boorish sort who forgoes civility and jettisons propriety when in the company of […]

Jeanne Shaheen is really calling Scott Brown Obscene? Forked Tongue!

by Skip March 14, 2014

Ah yes, that VAUNTED Democrat value called “Civility”!  Jeanne Shaheen called for it here: …During an informal bipartisan get-together we hosted earlier this week for our women colleagues in the Senate, there was unanimous agreement that members of both parties need to put politics aside and act in the best interests of our country….Washington could […]

Coffee Party Update

It’s been a while since I last opined on the partisan nature of the Coffee Party (and the NH franchise in particular).   But an NHCoffeeParty tweet did pass before mine eyes on this chilly December morn… and it smelled faintly of progressive rhetoric.   A quick review of the tweet history proved a point that the […]

After all, the womyn in the picture SOUNDS like her, right?  I believe that she has called me pretty much every label in that screed: Thanks for finding her, Susan (heh!).

Guest Post- Jane Cormier: “Rep. Sullivan and Twitter – What a Team!”

by The Editors November 27, 2013
Thumbnail image for Guest Post- Jane Cormier: “Rep. Sullivan and Twitter – What a Team!”

The Democratic Attack Machine is officially in motion. Manchester Rep. Peter Sullivan’s recent attack on 2nd Congressional Candidate, Rep. Marilinda Garcia, Salem, is proof of that fact.  After Rep. Garcia threw her hat into the political ring against Annie Kuster, the silliness began – via Rep. Sullivan’s sexist comments regarding Rep. Garcia on Twitter. @katbeep: […]

Democrats! Vote This Down and I’ll Make Your Life A Living Hell…

by Steve MacDonald November 24, 2013

A letter was sent to a New Hampshire House Reps last week to “encourage” them to vote for Medicaid Expansion.   I made mention of it earlier in the week in a post with some commentary on the letter, from Bill O’Brien, but I wanted to point out one part of it in particular. “More importantly, […]

The Coalition of the Wild Eyed.

The NRSC has a new video out. I’m no party pulpit-pounder but this does a neat job of encapsulating the uncivil rhetoric from the left with regard to the continuing resolution battle and the Obama shutdown.

Joe Biden, protector of women from “Neanderthals”

by Ed Naile September 13, 2013

Never put it past Joe Biden to come up with some outlandish statement for apparently no reason other than a camera is nearby.  He spoke to a packed-with-supporters room last night about his single-handed efforts to stop violence against women: The bill Biden passed single-handedly is twenty years old and had come up for re-authorization […]

Democrats Make Fun of A Recently Deceased Republican – Steve Makes Fun of Them

Thumbnail image for Democrats Make Fun of A Recently Deceased Republican – Steve Makes Fun of Them

Former NH State House Rep. Robert Kingsbury passed away recently.  On the whole, his brief contribution to liberty was well regarded.  But like anyone who dares set foot in the game, there were instances where he presented some ideas that caught the eye of his liberal opponents. I didn’t know him, so I can’t comment […]

In Case You Missed It! ‘New Tone!’ by Alinsky Labs

by Steve MacDonald September 8, 2013

I had announced earlier this week that we would have a new PSA on the program but Friday night I came across another one, created in late 2011, that we had never had the opporuntiy to use.  So not only did we add it into the rotation, we played it in the middle of segment […]

File this under New Hampshire Democrats Bringing Civility back to whatever.  NH House Rep Al Baldasaro got married and posted some pictures on Facebook.  New Hampshire Liberals Peter Sullivan, Tess Smith, and Eileen Spratt Ehler (those were the only ones I could see in the screen grab), couldn’t contain their hate and derision of Republicans […]

On Budgets, Uncivil NH Democrats, And How They Still Don’t Trust You With Your Own Money

by Steve MacDonald June 27, 2013

On page A2 of the “Manchester Paper” there is a long write up about the nearly unanimous support for the new state budget.  If you read it with a discerning eye and ear, however, something becomes obvious.   While Republicans are quoted as happy with the results and view the budget as a responsible reflection of […]

Deficit – What Deficit?

by Steve MacDonald May 8, 2013

The party that is bringing civility ( see here, here, here, here, here, here (sigh) here, here, a big one right here,…) ran on the idea that the New Hampshire Republican House and Senate was leaving New Hampshire with a deficit, a presumption only “slightly” less dishonest than the notion that Democrats are civil, or half as […]

More of That Civility From the Left That We Hear So Much About

You know you’ve arrived when people send you emails like this one. Love your posts, hope you and your family get a front row seat at the debut showing of the next Batman Movie. This is actually a pretty good idea.  If I’m in the front row I’ll probaby have a much clearer shot at […]

The new civility

by Susan Olsen April 14, 2013

Between Saturday’s rally and the big Concord gun show at the Everett arena, I got to spend time with more than 2,000 nice people – mothers, fathers, little ones, oldies but goodies, friends and neighbors.  We talked about common interests – guns, our families, the lovely change in the weather and getting our gardens going; […]

What’s all this about Representative Pantaloons?

by Susan Olsen January 24, 2013

Women are entitled to their choice of undergarments and even if these are an odd choice for a mature woman, we should not be disrespectful. Some day, we will all get old and…excuse me, you’re saying she’s a elected state representative?  You’re saying she’s the chair of a house committee dealing with deadly serious subjects?  That she […]

Bringing Civility to Concord….uh…..Not?

by Steve MacDonald January 22, 2013

Democrats claimed they would bring civility to Concord but as Rick Olsen observed here, at the hearing for HB 135, the Democrat committee chair yelled at the people who had come to the hearing–because they applauded when they liked what they heard. “…We are forced to sit here and suffer through this…I am not going […]

New Hampshire House Democrat Respect & Civility Alert!

by Steve MacDonald January 3, 2013

New Hampshire Democrats ran on respect and civility.  And we knew it for the fraud it was but people still fell for it. Part and parcel to the fraud was Speaker Norelli claiming to shake up the seating arrangements in the House to help build respect and civility,  bi-partisanship, working together…I figured it was so […]

Democrat Terie Norelli Brings Civility To the New Hampshire House?

by Steve MacDonald January 2, 2013

Get a load of this. It is part of a quote from an elected member of the New Hampshire House. “What we can do is make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave.  One way is to pass measures that will restrict freedoms that they […]

Maggie “Louisville Slugger” Hassan Takes a Swing at The NH Democrats ‘Civility’ Narrative

by Steve MacDonald November 9, 2012

Anyone who bought or sold the New Hampshire Democrats bringing ‘Civility’ to Concord narrative has a very short memory, is a complete fool, (an out of state voter domiciled here on November 6th for voting purposes), or just another New Hampshire Democrat–and we’ve said as much time and time again.  They are incapable of civility.

Are These Your New Hampshire Values? The Lee Nyquist Edition

by Steve MacDonald October 1, 2012

Democrat Lee Nyquist is a New Hampshire Democrat running for the State Senate in District 9.    Nyquist has embraced the Democrat state party narrative in which every Democrat from Shea-Porter and McKluster (running for congress), all the way down to every “Democrat running for anything” is running against the TEA Party. As part of […]

Stingy Old People Who Are Stupid

by Steve MacDonald August 31, 2012

I can only guess how Democrat State Senate candidate Lee Nyquist’s campaign manger reacted to Clint Eastwood’s speech at the Republican National Convention.  That campaign manager, Kevin Hodges, (batting coach for the New Hampshire Democrat party), had nothing kind to say about Republicans long before his invocation to beat them with a bat; particularity those […]

Yay for Gridlock! The word “compromise” is not bad, but “compromising principles” is a bad phrase. Throw in “social contract” and there’s a big problem.

Union Thuggery -Coming Soon To A State House near You.

by Steve MacDonald March 10, 2011

I was just thinking back to all the loose talk from the left about ending the gun ban in the New Hampshire State House. How they imagined someone just unloading over testimony supporting same sex marriage–to use one example–kids getting cut down in the cross-fire. And how they fell over themselves trying to scare parents into keeping their children from ever visiting the place because it was now just too dangerous.

The Implosion Of Another Left Wing ‘Institution’

by Steve MacDonald March 10, 2011

NPR is dodging bullets at a time when it was already facing an uphill battle to justify continued taxpayer funding. So saving an executive expose the network culture on hidden video is the last thing they needed. And while NPR runs duck and cover, pointing out that they guy was quitting anyway, they don’t seem to have anything to say about the other NPR exec at the table who was not.
