The SEIU has a reputation.  Mean, ranting, left-wing, all-Obama, and did we mention left-wing?  The NH-SEA (SEIU) is the big government union around New Hampshire and their leadership whiles away their time and effort keeping Democrats in power.  Spending always goes up and your taxes with them.

GraniteGrok Endorsement – Other NH House races

by Skip September 10, 2012

Time is short, and I do wish that I had started this process earlier and that “life” hadn’t interfered so often lately.  However, we’ve been told “hey thanks for letting us know who is worth our votes” so it is well worth the time to do this.  It is also important that those we endorse  […]

GraniteGrok Endorsement – NH Executive Council District 5: Dave Wheeler

by Skip August 31, 2012

Of all of the incumbents already on the NH Executive Council, we think it is fair to say that Dave Wheeler is the most likely always to stand on Conservative NH values – frugality, individual freedom, pro-life, Second Amendment and an absolute stand on Constitutional grounds (both NH and US).  It is VERY easy for […]

In Belknap District 8, SEA/SEIU has endorsed Rep. Peter Bolster […]

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.”
