SHORT BUS ECONOMICS

by Rick Olson October 17, 2011

“Imagine a political system so radical as to promise to move more of the poorest 20% of the population into the richest 20% than remain in the poorest bracket within the decade?

Evil Landlords Who Pick On Tenants

by Rick Olson July 27, 2011

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.

Can You Smell The Campaign Fires?

by Steve MacDonald February 10, 2011

After two years of extravagance on the taxpayer dime. Week after week of high priced parties with expensive food and high priced entertainment. Date nights that shut down cities. Frivolous trips (in his and her jetliners complete with entourage) to various parts of the globe. Vacation, after vacation, after vacation. And despite the glamor of a designer wardrobe, pimped by the adoring media for the past 24 months, we are now supposed to be impressed by this?

So, the Democrats hated married women when they passed this law!

by Skip January 11, 2011

Ah, yes, once again, we see what happens when clueless politicians (in this case, the Democrats who rammed the Credit Card Act) plant their noses squarely into the cement wall that is called the Law of Unintended Consequences?  Wall Street Journal (emphasis mine): The suggested measure is "intended to enhance protections for consumers and to […]

The political knives are out over the shooting…

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?

What Would We Do Without Studies Like These?

by Steve MacDonald December 28, 2010

Someone has discovered that oral sex is a gateway drug to intercourse among teenagers. A three year study determined that teens who have oral sex are more likley to have intercourse than teens who do not. And if you ask the Baptists they will tell you that intercourse leads to dancing, or was that the other way around?

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.

Why I Need Your Tax Dollars, by Gary Hirshberg

by Steve MacDonald December 27, 2010

Gary Hirshberg CE-Yo of Stonyfield Farms wants you to know what he thinks about a recent taxpayer investment in organic farming. His editorial in this mornings Union Leader goes on at great length extolling the virtues and benefits of organic farming. It will create jobs, better food, help grow the organic farms footprint and provide fresh local dairy products.
He never mentions that his fresh local dairy farm is owned by a huge multinational French conglomerate of which he is a prominent international player. (Big Dairy!)

Four Years All For Naught?

by Steve MacDonald December 21, 2010

I have just three thoughts to share for the moment; Carol had four years in a democrat majority congress–which promised to clean up the swamp, two of them with a democrat president, and I do not see any attempt by her party or by Carol herself (she is defined legislatively as a follower not a leader) to address this or anything else outside the big blue box of liberal progressive agenda items.

Carol-Shea….What The?

by Steve MacDonald December 17, 2010

Disgraced left wing rube and soon-to-be former Pelosi-Party Representative to New Hampshire Carol SEIU-Porter hit the pages of this mornings Union Leader like fingernails on a chalkboard. But it is a familiar sound. In fact I believe she has just plagiarized her own 2006 campaign web site. We’ve got irresponsible spending, two wars we could not afford, I’m just itching to play the song ‘Reminiscing’ by the Little River Band while I read it.
