Government Spending

Democrats and their love affair with prisons….

by Tim Condon May 21, 2013

The Union Leader ran an article today about two felons who have apparently been doing random violent home invasions where the occupants are always beaten and sometimes raped and/or killed. So what is a Democrat’s solution in the comment section after the article? “This is what happens when your state government underfunds prisons….” Sheesh. I […]

The Sequester: We were warned, but we just wouldn’t listen!

by Tim Condon March 1, 2013

And now, because there might be a teensy, weensy, tiny percentage decrease in the continued projected headlong explosion of increased government spending, our existence may be coming to an end, all as accurately reported by National Review’s Morning Jolt:

“Government budget about to be SLASHED! We’re all gonna DIE!”

by Tim Condon February 22, 2013

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Washington Monument ploy. It’s a tactic the political class uses to lash out against the people to inflict  as much pain and punishment as possible whenever government spending is reduced. “Is reduced”? Did I say that? Hell, we’re talking about…

Notable Quotes: Frederic Bastiat – “The Extra-Legal Parasite vs. The Lawful Sponger”

by Steve MacDonald January 11, 2013

“…when John Q. Citizen gives a hundred sous to a Government officer and receives nothing for them unless it be annoyances, he might as well give them to a thief.  It is nonsense to say that the Government officer will spend these hundred sous to the great profit of national labor; the thief would do […]

And on the other hand…”Paul Ryan’s plan is not good,” it is “weak tea.”

by Tim Condon August 11, 2012

Lest we all believe the cries from the insane spending Democrats, or the crafty Republicans who want to keep the government spending binge going while play-acting that they want to cut the size of our bloated governments….read on:

Paul Ryan it is: “Hiding Spending Does Not Reduce Spending” (see below)

by Tim Condon August 11, 2012

Bottom line: “We dont’ think government should be in control of all this. We think the people should be in control.” Watch this video; look at the facial expressions and body language of the two politicians to his left; look at the fear and loathing emanating from the other political class pigs around that table! YES!

He didn’t build that! Oh yeah he DID….

by Tim Condon August 7, 2012

Oh what the heck. Some pictures, posters, and images are so good that I’ve just got to take up the space to share them. Of course, when we say “he built that,” we must be careful to specify he had plenty of help…from the Democrats and RINO’s in Congress!       :——–)       <—Libertarian-conservative […]

Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court. It is also doomed.

by Tim Condon July 1, 2012

This from Holman Jenkins, Jr. in The Wall Street Journal recently: “The mandate’s survival could actually be a convenience to those who remain seriously interested in fixing health care….Reality could not have instructed President Obama more plainly: The last thing we needed, in a country staggering under deficits and debt, a sluggish economy and an unaffordable […]

Sen. Ayotte thinks she’s helping. She’s not.

by Tim Condon February 7, 2012

The federal government is spending over a trillion dollars into debt every year—a trillion dollar deficit every year!—and Sen. Ayotte wants more federal money spent on a “job corps center” in Manchester…just without the unions getting their place at the trough. She misses the point: The “job corps center” shouldn’t be built at all. We […]

GOP Rep. John Hikel has sponsored a bill that will allow bottled spirits of all types to be sold in markets, grocery stores, convenience stores, and other outlets.

Democrat’s Say The Dumbest Things

by Steve MacDonald November 6, 2011

Mr. Morse and the left would have you believe that jobs spring from government like Eve from the rib of Adam. They do not want to admit that ‘government’ is itself a luxury item that must be paid for like anything else’ by the product of the private sector risk taking. Good government cannot exist without the conscience of better men giving a portion of their property for some guarantee of stability and a promise to protect their property in exchange.

Stonyfield CEO In Line For Another Pile of Taxpayer Cash?

by Steve MacDonald October 25, 2011

The question should not be if Stonyfield Dairy CEO and prolific Democrat donor Gary Hirshberg gets another pile of taxpayer cash, it should be “how much is he going to get?”

That Rich Bastard Who Is Screwing The Teachers Over Is Actually…

by Steve MacDonald October 13, 2011

The Department of Education does nothing that the states, or towns, or teachers themselves cannot do themsleves, (except double its budget every two years to pay more for doing even less.) So the real question is not how we can use class warfare to make an inefficient bureaucracy bigger, but how we find ways to help teachers teach children.

  “If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation …” —Rush Limbaugh Today’s Union Leader Editorial, entitled, “Free Cops!” points once again to the ills of  having a big-government Democrat like Jeanne Shaheen serving the Granite State in the U.S. Senate.

Socialist Fallacies

by Steve MacDonald October 2, 2011

Socialist Fallacies is a book written by Yves Guyot and readily available in the public domain as a pdf.  If you have not read it, I highly recommend it.  Every page (so far) is loaded with observations about socialism that are as relevant today as they were in the early 1900’s.  Guyot relates the problems […]

UNH may have to Layoff More Staff

by Steve MacDonald September 29, 2011

Instead of looking for the opportunity to do more with less they blame the legislature for asking them to do what every small business-every family in the state–has already done for years. Cut back, and find new ways to get the job done.

A response to Peter Burling’s support of an invisible bill

by Skip September 12, 2011

Democrat Peter Burling is an ex-NH State Rep and Senator and is part of the NH Rail Transit Authority (you know, that scheme that would allow a few 19th Century enamored types to still indulge in riding their fantasy choo-choos at taxpayer expense while strutting like Euro-elites).  With his letter in the Concord Monitor, he […]

New Hampshire Exceptional, Yet Again.

by Steve MacDonald September 7, 2011

Stopping the spending and the out of control growth was and is exactly what you need and want from your US congress, but cannot yet achieve with a Democrat Senate and a Democrat President. And you will never get it as long as the left controls any those parts of your Federal government.

Would You Suck Twice as Hard for Half as Much?

by Steve MacDonald August 30, 2011

This particualr faerie story center around three graphs from the Government Printing Office (GPO). Not the fed, the treasury, or even some fruit-loop left wing think tank, but the GPO. The GPO prints stuff, and answers to the Executive branch. So right out of the toy-box we have to question these partisan stills, presented as they are in a partisan manner, bearing guestimated facts and assumptions, with no basis in reality
