Groktionary

by Steve MacDonald June 7, 2013

We were having some fun this morning–actually I was having some fun–putting the Grok prefix to a host of suffixes for my own amusement.  The catalyst for this was a request from Skip to all the Groksters for some guidance regarding something Grok related that we’ve been working on for a while, that he will […]

Pay As You Throw Had To Go – Revisited

by Steve MacDonald April 7, 2012

In April of 2011 I wrote about trying to institute Pay As You Throw in Merrimack.  Seeing as this comes up every year, I figured it was time to re-post it.  One point I would add; If any division of the town government intends to continue making a case for costs/burden related to actual use […]

Do Democrats Now Love The Chamber Of Commerce?

by Steve MacDonald June 16, 2011

Remember when the Chamber of Commerce (C of C) was the lefts whipping boy? They were evil capitalists using money from “outside the country” to affect their selfish policy agenda- So what do those same leftists have to say about that same Chamber of Commerce (presumably with the same funding) leading the charge to prevent the enforcement of e-verify?

Palin v. Elites

by Steve MacDonald June 11, 2011

There are plenty of Republicans and Independents out there who have either gotten lazy and simply adopted the lefts narrative on Palin or who are actual snobby-right-wing elites protecting the moderate Republican power base. I’ve not much of a stomach for either. So if you feel like tossing out some of that left wing elitist narrative just be prepared to back it up.

The Sweet Stench Of Left Wing Hypocrisy

by Steve MacDonald May 26, 2011

The Union Leader wastes no time, exposing Hawkins connection to money she received May 11th from America Votes (out of state left wing donation), which Granite State Progress then used to support the Democrat in the special election she is squawking about, specifically to elect that democrat, in that election.

Is John Lynch In Trouble With Democrats?

by Steve MacDonald May 22, 2011

The progressive socialists who pull the big red levers at party headquarters invest a good deal of political capitol on bashing big business and the men and women who run them so how do they reconcile their figurehead democrat pimping the potential for 1500 new manufacturing jobs in the state, created by some evil, free market, fortune 100 company?

Right To Work Override

by Steve MacDonald May 20, 2011

If Exxon Mobile demanded $50.00 per month from all its employees, every month, to pay for benefits and it’s political action agenda, the left would shit kittens, protest, and then engage in well funded, partisan series of lawsuits until the company was forbidden from using that money for political activity.

Stephen Colbert’s Campaign Finance Lesson

by Steve MacDonald May 20, 2011

“Why does it get so complicated to do this? I mean, this is page after page of legalese,” Mr. Colbert lamented. “All I’m trying to do is affect the 2012 election. It’s not like I’m trying to install iTunes.”

New Hampshire Got Jobs!?

by Steve MacDonald May 19, 2011

How about some jobs? New Hampshire is reporting an April unemployment rate of 4.9%. … This is unlike last year when the initial “improvement” we saw was actually the result of workforce decline–people had stopped looking or receiving benefits and dropped out of the equation.

The Missiles of Venezuela

by Steve MacDonald May 17, 2011

Can the guy who accepts books from the same dictator who is prepared to represent a significant risk to American interests in the hemisphere–including interests in America, step up and take them out before they are operational? Or does the major troublemaker and regional king maker in Venezuela have a right to intermediate range weapons capable of carrying nuclear warheads, and the ongoing training and assistance of Iran’s Qods force?

NH Senate Should BEG Our forgiveness on RGGI

by Steve MacDonald May 16, 2011

I just hope none of these Republican State senators took a pledge against broad based taxes, because they just voted to keep the tax on everything. You can’t get much broader than that.

Is The Teenage Mother’s Life Really at Risk?

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2011

In the 20th century, deaths from complications of pregnancy have dropped from 850 per 100,000 pregnancies in 1900 all the way down to 7.5. That’s quite impressive. What has to annoy liberals is that most of that improvement occurred by 1982 and without unlimited access to “life saving abortions,” and without the state or federal pro-abortion democrats hindering parental consent before they were performed on minors.

A Funding “Solution” For Democrats Concerned about Budget Cuts

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2011

Remember all that stuff we didn’t have to have in the New Hampshire budget before 2006 when the democrats started piling it up into what has become our Billion dollar budget deficit? I don’t either. I’m not even sure what they spent it on which is why I am convinced I can do without it. All this caterwauling is clearly just cover for keeping the bloated bureaucracy alive so they can milk it for union campaign contributions.

by Steve MacDonald May 11, 2011

It should come as no surprise to anyone that a guy (Mr. Obama) who sat in a church for years and years and insists he didn’t hear anything that he didn’t (presumably) want to hear, would be any different towards the American people?
