Red Rover in Dover

by Steve MacDonald April 10, 2013

In Norwegian, apparently, Røver means Pirate.  I won’t hold fast to that definition.  I just learned it on Wikipedia, which is about as reliable as a school board in Dover spending your tax dollars to pay lobbyists to push legislation you may not support.  Which is what I mean by pirate.  The Dover school board, […]

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things…Obama Is Responsible For

by Steve MacDonald July 6, 2012

This is too good not to borrow and re-post.  Dana Loesch–whom we saw at RightOnline this year–reports on the most recent Obama distraction–Romney..something something…and follows with a reminder that most of Obama’s defenders are funded by a guy with way more money (Soros) than Romney.  She then provides a list of links to things about […]

Gambling? Seriously?

by Steve MacDonald February 8, 2012

The success of any move to add Casinos to New Hampshire will hinge on the Libertarian Republicans currently crowding the House and their ability to override a likely Lynch veto.  While I am on their side in almost every other case, when it comes to casinos we part ways, and not for the reasons you […]

Shea-Porter’s Money “Don’t know were it came from.”

by Steve MacDonald July 18, 2010

“The money don’t know” meme is the standard dodge reperted ad nuaseum on television and in movies whenever one of our imperfect heroes discovers some stash of drug cash. It’s tainted money, accumulated by thugs and murderers on the lives, weakness, and addictions of others, (just like congress) but as the story goes…it’s ok to take it becasue the money don’t know where it came from. The heroes resist temptation. Shea Porter is no such hero.
