EUROPE’S PROBLEM — CHILDLESS LEADERS? “[Now that] he is elected, the leaders of France, Germany, and the U.K. will have zero biological children among them. . . . President Trump, by contrast, has 5 children.” From the comments: “Seems very appropriate for Europe which has chosen demographic suicide.” Yeah.  We’ve blogged about “invasion by demographics” […]

Thumbnail image for GrokTALK! – Where is Your Legislative Strategy?

House Rep Frank Edelblut synthesizes the path to legislative success (and failure?) in under ten minutes; your caucus (your party) needs a vision, and then a legislative strategy to achieve it, but reality is often something very different. (And yes, I forgot the stingers before and after…) Learn more about the 603 Alliance at http://603Alliance.org […]

Thumbnail image for What Kind Of Jasper Will We Get?

Democrat elected NH House Speaker Shawn Jasper (see also Jassper) has some history with regard to dishonest tactics. This is from January 2012… Rep. Shawn Jasper testified yesterday, January 25, 2012 AGAINST House Bill 1571 “on behalf of the House Republican Majority office,” i.e., Rep. DJ Bettencourt.  Oddly enough the GOP leadership was the ONLY […]

And these are just a few recent examples.  From Patterico… We saw recently that Obama is mad about how the feds are handling Ebola: “It’s not tight,” a visibly angry Mr. Obama said of the response, according to people briefed on the meeting. He told aides they needed to get ahead of events and demanded […]

NHGOP: Some in leadership are showing the integrity that we need in NH, where are the others?

by JR Hoell September 6, 2014

A BIG thank you to Honorable David Bates for having the courage and convictions to stand up for what is right. Judges 17:6 talks about times like this: New American Standard Bible “In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.”  Is it right to […]

Fore! On ISIS, the Putter in Chief’s caddy says (all emphasis throughout is mine): “We haven’t made a decision to take additional actions at this time, but we truly don’t rule out additional action against ISIL if it becomes warranted,” Ben Rhodes, a senior Obama aide, told National Public Radio earlier on Thursday, using another […]

Stop the Party I Want to Get Off

by Tom February 3, 2014

We affiliate with or join political parties to support ideas that we believe in. We say, “I’m a Republican”, “I’m a Democrat”, or, increasingly, “I’m an Independent”, based on our core principles. Each political party has a platform. New Hampshire Democrats have theirs and New Hampshire Republicans have theirs. These platforms are unsigned contracts between […]

Obama Doesn’t Want Dictatorial Power over Sequester Cuts

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

Email and social media have been burning up with cries and moans about the US Senate giving Obama dictatorial power. What they actually tried to do was to give him complete control over the Sequester cuts.  Only the Sequester cuts.  But all 85 Billion. Obama could pick and choose what got cut without having to concern himself with congress. […]

Blogosphere Line of the Day!

by Skip May 21, 2012

Once again, NJ Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) has exceeded expections.  Since his campaign (and subsequent elevation to Governor), his YouTubes have become Internet sensations.  Now I’m betting that as a surrogate for Mitt Romney, he will continue to keep Obama “in the dark room”; “This is a guy who literally is walking around in a […]

Smoke Em or Eat Em

by Steve MacDonald September 12, 2011

I think we need to be more aggressive (in reducing cigarette taxes). We need to implement a plan to reduce them as far as we can, while eliminating any budgetary dependence upon them altogether. This is not a reliable tax so I am asking the state of New Hampshire to kick the cigarette tax habit.

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.

What’s Good For The Goose..

Tom Fahey quotes our confused friend Harrell Kirstein, Spokesperchild of the New Hampshire democrat party in regard to Bill O’Brien’s choices for leadership positions in the NH House. (I have to call Harrell the Spokesperchild from now on. Spokesperson has the word ‘son’ in it and we know how sensitive Harrell’s spleen is.)
