by Mike January 22, 2014

Just a look at the resort will tell you that our ‘elected representatives’ consider themselves to be our elite rulers, entitled to be pampered. Politico reports: The “Congress of Tomorrow” House Republican Conference retreat will take place Jan. 29 through Jan. 31 at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina in Cambridge, […]

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, […]

The Bill Wouldn’t Cover Bloggers, He Said.

by Steve MacDonald February 14, 2013

Jeb Bradley is a primary sponsor of New Hampshire Senate Bill 120. Senate Republican Leader Jeb Bradley is proposing changes to New Hampshire’s election laws so voters will know who is paying for negative television campaign ads and material mailed to their homes. That’s the sell for the low information voter, but the Boston.com article even had […]

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 […]

Where the Heck is My Damn Lobbyist? (HB 1342)

by Steve MacDonald February 21, 2012

New Hampshire HB 1342 would prohibit towns and cities from using your tax dollars to hire a lobbyist to send to Concord.  This seems like a pretty good idea to me.   But not to the Committee which rejected it 12-2 sending it to the House floor as Inexpedient to Legislate. (It gets voted on tomorrow.) […]

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 […]

Hodespocrisy – Quick shot

by Steve MacDonald September 15, 2010

Mr. Ethics, Paul "Hot Dog" Hodes (you know what’s inside hot dogs) still has a slew of Senate slime ball donors for me to review, but this caught my attention and I had to write it up. The top 20 recipients of Lobbyist funds in the 2010 cycle includes 15 democrats.  (That’s 15 out of […]

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.

Sugar Daddy

by Steve MacDonald June 24, 2010

Paul Hodes has a dirty little secret.  His ‘commitment’ to green energy has strings attached that lead directly to the sugar industry and a significant campaign cash “Thank You.”  Back in 2007 and 2008 Congress waged an epic battle over the Farm Bill.  They didn’t call it the farm bill they called it the Food […]

Revolving Door

by Steve MacDonald March 16, 2010

The Revolving door is the millwork of connected Political insiders in Washington.  These are the people that keep tax dollars flowing into the metastasizing tumor of big government, and through the veins of the groups that use the revolving door to feed their own wealth and influence.    It is a fiscally incestuous relationship between power […]
