by Steve MacDonald April 29, 2014
Thumbnail image for New Hampshire Public School Drop Out Rates Soar Under Governor Hassan

A national organization that examines public school drop out rates has just graded New Hampshire.  We got an 86% (UL-Secret hand shake required).  That might sound good until you recall that Governor Maggie Hassan’s predecessor claimed the rate had dropped below 1%.  This means that under Maggie Hassan, Drop out rates have skyrocketed. (Why aren’t […]

(This was written on April 1st, 2013 and left in the drafts folder.  I thought I ‘d dust it off. ) Former New Hampshire Governor John Lynch liked to talk about how his administration had overseen a historic decrease in the number of kids who dropped out of public school with a mission to get that […]

I’m not crazy…my mother had me tested.

by Susan Olsen May 25, 2013

But Representative Abrami thinks I am paranoid because I oppose SB 11; however, I may be just crazy enough to believe I own the water on my property. Sadly, it seems that the NH Department of Environmental Services says “No”.  If that doesn’t give you pause, then go to the former Governor John Lynch’s website and read the final report of the Water […]

by Steve MacDonald January 14, 2013

Democrat Contradictions – Out Of State Influence in Local Elections

by Steve MacDonald August 13, 2012

Democrats in New Hampshire take a lot of money from outside the state.  Don’t take my word for it, just go look it up.  Millions and Millions.  They use candidates, campaign committees, so-called non-profits, and even have super wealthy out of state special interest donors making personal donations here and there to move money around […]

“Carefully considered and narrowly tailored…?”

by Steve MacDonald June 13, 2012

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch Vetoed SB175 this week, a bill that would allow heirs to control the commercial use of a celebrities identity.  But I’m not all that interested in the Veto or the bill, I am more…amused…by the hypocrisy in his explanation for it. The Union Leader reports Governor Lynch as suggesting that […]

Governor Martin O’Malley Rallies NH Democrats…

by Steve MacDonald June 5, 2012

Remember when New Hampshire Governor John Lynch slithered off in secret to  Tim Gill’s secret Gay-millionaire-democrat-donor confab known as Political OutGiving?  He wasn’t fundraising, so he said, but ended up with around $100,000.00 in contributions from the attendees (He got the rest of his 2010 campaign cash from Unions and his own bank account).  Well […]

The Little Governor Who Couldn’t

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2011

Governor Lynch, in a fit of impotence and self contradiction, confused his role at the states chief executive today, in a Union Leader column by Tom Fahey. In regard to the passage into law of New Hampshire HB 601 and SB 148, he remarked on one hand that…

by Steve MacDonald May 26, 2011

Given the facts ‘on the ground’ will pregnancy continue to be the “exception” to parental notification in John Lynches New Hampshire or have parents earned the right to have a voice in what happens to their underage daughters?

Right To Work – “Dear State Legislator”

by Steve MacDonald May 23, 2011

I realize most of the (Merrimack) town delegation supports right to work but as we approach the override vote I wanted to impart these remarks. If any business but a union demanded $50.00 every month from every employee, for benefits and used some of that money to finance its mostly one-party political action funding, there would be hell to pay. No one of any political party would support that. Now imagine if they had to do it or they could not work there?

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?

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 Shower Muse Asks An Important Question About the Left Wing

by Steve MacDonald March 21, 2011

Inspiration comes in strange places. Dots connect, ideas coalesce, thoughts combine. These kinds of events are most common for me in circumstances where it is almost impossible to write them down. I often get revelations driving and have to pull over to write them down. But the other morning it was in the shower.

Union Leader Hit’s It Out Of The Park

by Steve MacDonald March 17, 2011

This Union Leader Editorial in today’s paper does exactly what we should all be doing.  Pointing out the obvious hypocrisy of democrats who ignore actions by their Democrat governor.  It used to be that the “essential” level of funding for state health and social services was whatever the commissioner of Health and Human Services said […]

Maryland Can’t Pass Same Sex Marriage

by Steve MacDonald March 11, 2011

Tim Gill won’t be happy. He and Political Outgiving have been pouring money into Maryland and the pockets of its governor, Martin O’Malley, O’Malley was one of Tim Gill’s special guests at last years secret gathering along with our own governor John Lynch. The goal was, as it was in New Hampshire, to buy up local politicians at the state house level and ensure the governor of finanaical support to pass same sex marriage.

Anyone Know Where Governor Lynch Was Last Weekend?

by Steve MacDonald March 8, 2011

I’m wondering where New Hampshire’s governor was between the 3rd and 6th of March 2011? Was he somewhere in New Hampshire, or off on other business? Maybe dropping off a Hallmark card of thanks? The donors from Political Outgiving ponied up about 10% of the Lynch campaign haul for 2010. Sometimes an email or a phone call just isn’t enough.

Breaking The Addiction To Government

by Steve MacDonald December 24, 2010

So is John Lynch’s ‘recovery’ built on a foundation of one time money from Washington to expand the role of government? That would be a yes. The Norelli/Larsen/Lynch combine took the company credit card, bought a bunch of goods and services from themselves in the form of more government, and are now left with more mouths to feed and a huge recurring annual bill for which there is no revenue.

The Illusion Of Zero Drop Outs

by Steve MacDonald December 14, 2010

Governor Lynch is all about his success at reducing Drop Out rates in New Hampshire. (The number of high school age kids who leave school without graduation or achieving a recognized equivalent.) He even has a goal. New Hampshire will have a zero percent drop out rate by 2012. And based on the available data, I think he will succeed, but not in reducing actual “drop outs” to zero.

Fun With Paul And Carol

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2010

Anyone know if Paul ‘Sugar Daddy’ Hodes and Carol Seiu-Porter have decided to raise taxes yet?  That’s what that is you know?  If they allow any existing cuts to expire, they are raising taxes. Now I realize our liberal friends don’t see it that way.   They look at it like this.  Since 2003/2005 the […]

Republican Suckers!?

by Steve MacDonald November 20, 2010

John Lynch could only win re-election with the help of Republicans and independents and so he did.  So are they all liberals in denial, or just a bunch of suckers?  Someone fell for the lies about the budget.  They believed the liberals and their RINO agitators who sold them on a $70 million dollar surplus […]

National Organization for Marriage Quotes The Grok

by Steve MacDonald November 5, 2010

Brian Brown, the President of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), just released his post election update and Granite Grok is both mentioned and quoted. Gov. John Lynch narrowly survived our "Lynch Lied" campaign, but thanks to the huge veto-proof majorities in the new New Hampshire senate and house, he will be the lamest of […]

The Bonfire Of The Misogynists

by Steve MacDonald November 2, 2010

Clinton continues to be coveted very likely because of his indiscretions, but more prominently for being the most visible evidence that the democrat party is a cabal of liars because he was impeached for lying–and lying about his casual abuse of women to boot.

Feds Play The Lynch Shell Game With Themselves

by Steve MacDonald November 2, 2010

Taking a page from the John Lynch Playbook, the Federal Reserve is planning to buy 500 billion in treasury bonds. This is the Federal Government taking money from it’s right pocket, putting it in its’ left pocket, then putting it back in the right pocket, and claiming to have 500 billion more to spend.

by Steve MacDonald October 29, 2010

Lynch has only raised 1.12 Million for the general election with his own loans. Take the loans out and he only has 350,000.00 from sources other than his own checkbook. Thirty five percent of whats left is from one special interest; gay marriage activists from Tim Gill’s Political Out Giving, the group he secretly slithered off to, to give a luncheon speech back in May.

Governor Lynch’s final statement on the matter was that he could find no circumstance in which parents should be involved. That every instance of pregnancy, regardless of age, was one of “those cases” where parental notification “is not possible.”

DC Puppet?

by Steve MacDonald October 25, 2010

A vote for John Lynch is a vote for Obamacare. John Lynch has not demonstrated any interest in protecting the state of New Hampshire from federal meddling of any kind.  He takes their money, strings attached, to hide his bad budgeting and big spending.  He’s accepted federal education money even though it was written with […]
