Dope of the Week

Did Barney Frank Fart on National TV?

by Rick Olson August 9, 2011

” I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don’t let anybody tell you different.” ~Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Jeff Poor of the Daily Caller Live television has its drawbacks. A big one is that you never know when an accident might happen. Exhibit “A”: Monday night’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on […]

William Jasmin: A Man Without A Hunting License

by Rick Olson July 21, 2011

In my previous entry about a “Hunter” who was seriously injured when a tree stand that he climbed into collapsed, causing him to fall, there was a presumption that the “Hunter” was lawfully engaged in the activity of hunting upon the land of Charles Corliss. That is not the case. WILLIAM JASMIN HAD NO LICENSE TO HUNT.

New Hampshire’s Hunting Tradition Under Attack From Within

by Rick Olson July 5, 2011

This is the litigation lottery…nothing more.  Despite the laws limiting liability, Jasmin probably lawyer-shopped, finding Mr. Branch to shake down the owner of the property. And more than likely, William Jasmin could care not one lick. He could care less that more property owners will now post their land and preclude hunting for countless others….preclude hikers, bird-watchers…mountain bikers.

Ancient Chinese Secret

by Steve MacDonald December 29, 2010

In an amusing week for Carol Shea-Porter, in which she almost sounded McCarthyesque in her suspicions of Chinese communist cash infiltrations into the campaigns of domestic candidates, how long can it be before she blames her 2010 election loss on Global Warming?

How Do You Say “Klaatu barada nikto” In Chinese?

by Steve MacDonald December 27, 2010

One source inside the Shea-Porter camp who asked to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, admitted that the congresswoman was trying to learn to the phrase “Klaatu barada nikto” in Chinese. She claimed that if she spoke these words before the 2012 campaign that donations from the Chinese controlled conglomerates, to Caribbean front-companies, who would then move money into New Hampshire via a courier named “Falcon” traveling in a saucer shaped balloon, would stop and she would be able to win re-election.

They’ve “learned their lesson”?

by Tom December 8, 2010

Well, Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) is either pulling a fast one on us, or he’s an indecisive dope.  Three years ago, this Michigan Republican worked with a California Democrat to add a contingent to the "bi-partisan" Energy Independence and Security Act that phases out (makes illegal!) traditional incandescent light bulbs, in favor of the curly-Q, […]

Food For Thought

by Steve MacDonald December 1, 2010

Over here, you’ll find Senator Shaheen crowing about how great the new food safety bill is, and how she, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, helped pass it. (It’s crap like all the other dem bills but that’s not why she’s an ass.)
She is an ass because (and if it makes you feel better Judd Gregg is an ass for being both a co-sponsor and a yeah vote) there are provisions in this Senate bill (S510) that….raise taxes.

Jilted RINO Seeks Revenge

by Steve MacDonald October 21, 2010

Longtime RINO and progressive sympathizer Cynthia Dokmo lost her primary.  She didn’t take it well.  Now she is pulling a Murkowski–sort of–waging a write in campaign to undo the injustice thrust upon her by primary voters. Certainly it must have been a mistake.  In all of her district there has to be one or two […]

(D)i Fruscia Takes His Toys And Goes…

by Steve MacDonald September 20, 2010

With any luck this will be the last time Tony (D)iFruscia leaves the republican party.  Kevin Landrigan reported yesterday that (D)iFrusica, who lost his seat in the primary last Tuesday has officially declared himself an independent.  Mr. (D)iFruscia–and oddly enough Harrel Kirkstein (spokesman for the New Hampshire democrat party) agree that this is another example […]

What’s With The intimidation Tactics?

by Steve MacDonald September 9, 2010

This brings me to the main course of the Facebook comment, the “intimidating activists for political purposes portion.” Yes, that’s right–the video threat is not nearly as ominous as this next bit, a perennial favorite of the Giuda staff… “They are not registered with the SOS and making endorsements. Not a good position to take.”

They Are That Stupid

by Steve MacDonald August 13, 2010

A bunch of Linden LaRouche democrats show up at Tea Party rallies with Obama Hitler signs and the progressive left tries to blame the Tea Party.  The left has made it public knowledge that they will themselves show up and pretend to be part of the Tea Party movement with racist and insulting signs or […]

Judd, your name is mudd…

by Tom August 3, 2010

I know Skip posted a similar entry about this earlier, but I need to give Judd Gregg our "Dope of the Week" award, for supporting Elena Kagan for the SCOTUS. I called his office in DC today, to ask "why??".  His staffer said something to the effect of, "he decided to support her based on […]

Does ‘Hodes’ Mean Stupid In Some Other Language?

by Steve MacDonald July 27, 2010

  Paul Hodes is singing to his choir again. This time he’s over at HuffPo wielding the party rhetoric like a drunk man with a fireplace poker.  It’s nice to see him so comfortable in his own ignorance.  You really get the feeling he believes it.   But it won’t do him any good.  Those […]

What John Lynch IS Good At

by Steve MacDonald July 19, 2010

William F. Klessons has stretched credibility to the breaking point. Who is Klessons you ask? He is Salem’s self-styled print equivalent of Keith Olbermann. A Kool-Aid stained liberal apologist and basher of all things to the right of Mussolini in the pages of the Salem Patriot, and the Observer. Klessons came to my attention when […]

Shea-Porter’s Money “Don’t know were it came from.”

by Steve MacDonald July 18, 2010

“The money don’t know” meme is the standard dodge reperted ad nuaseum on television and in movies whenever one of our imperfect heroes discovers some stash of drug cash. It’s tainted money, accumulated by thugs and murderers on the lives, weakness, and addictions of others, (just like congress) but as the story goes…it’s ok to take it becasue the money don’t know where it came from. The heroes resist temptation. Shea Porter is no such hero.

Carol-(S)Care

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2010

  Independent voices might have some expectation of doing independent things.  Things like reading legislation or accessing resources outside the ones the people desperately selling a bill want you to stick to.  That kind of open mindedness would go a long way to demonstrating integrity and responsibility.  Or you could be Carol Shea Porter.  Carol […]

CSP Rewind – Foreign Trade

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2010

Carol Shea Porter (CSP) continues to demonstrate her inability to grasp even the most basic concepts of governance.  Back in May of 2009 she issued a press release promoting her signing on to a letter suggesting that the Panama Trade Promotion Agreement, (TPA) also called the Panama Free trade agreement (FTA), would in essence cost […]

Carol Shea Porter…On Veterans

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2010

Carol Shea-Porter has always claimed to have some kind of commitment to the troops.  And you don’t have to look far to find some suitable rhetoric on veterans either.  But when CSP voted to maul health care, and then later deemed it passed so she wouldn’t actually have to go on the record again supporting […]

by Doug September 18, 2009

The new ones. That I’m not gonna raise. For anything. Except transportation. Never, I say! Got that?" Hmmm. You think […]
