This famous cinematic quote suits the moment as the Concord Monitor, the pragmatic-socialist New Hampshire “paper-of-record,” finds itself on the receiving end of progressive-bureaucrat obfuscation.

by Jane Cormier January 27, 2015

The UL had an article recently on HHS taking $7 million away from nursing homes. This is $7,000,000.00 million that was approved in the 2014-2015 budget but that HHS had gone over in other areas. NH should protect life in all of its stages and regardless of the condition. People whose medical condition require nursing […]

Charlie Arlinghaus Instead, right now – before the election – everyone who wants to help control the budget and our current spending problem should tell us their target for spending.

Oh yeah, let’s also add “Free Stater” to that list, too!  Take those words out of their lexicon, all you’d have left would be jaws going up and down.  Without those adjectives (hurled as epithats), they’d have nothing to say and no one to excoriate.  And that would suck for them.  Listen to Ray Buckley, […]
