NH GOP Chair Jennifer Horn campaign promise – oops…

by Skip October 30, 2014

We listen, we write it down, and then we review.  Review – such a softer word than accountability.  So let’s go with accountability.  When she ran for NH GOP Chair, she promised three things – and now it is the time for the Party (not just us) to start the review and see if those […]

Campaign Finance limitations – dumb idea; $$ for messaging still doesn’t translate to votes

by Skip October 15, 2014

There’s Larry Lessig’s PAC, the MayDay PAC, that is raising and spending millions of dollars this election cycle – to stop others from spending so much money.  So, too, is George Soro’s son.  The Left is as well.  Sorry, their stated of “taking the money out”, I believe, masks the real reason – stopping free […]

This is from Matt Kibbe at Freedomworks talking about the priorities of the GOP Establishment.  It sounds familiar… The GOP are all in Kansas trying to save Senator Pat Roberts, who doesn’t live in Kansas.  Sucking money from New Hampshire and Colorado.  GOP spent $40 million to save Mitch McConnell (in his primary in Kentucky) […]

by Skip September 23, 2014

NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“ The operative questions is, WHY do we let them keep doing this to us?  Whose money is it, really?  Oh wait…the Democrats (and not a few Republicans) DO believe that legislators have the “right” to dictate our behavior (in “the Land […]

Tom Steyer must be ecstatic.  He can now donate the max limit to every Democrat from here to his Environmental Nirvana and it’s not illegal.  But then so can everyone else.  That would be because SCOTUS just struck down the aggregate limit on total donations by an individual to all candidates on free speech grounds.

It’s all about the money, er, children.

by Susan Olsen May 16, 2013

If alleged gun violence is what really  makes her tick, why isn’t/hasn’t Mizz  Hawkins taken up the fight on behalf of murdered children in Chicago? Might lead a skeptic to wonder whose parents make larger contributions…

NH Republicans v. NH Democrats – ‘Simplified.’

by Steve MacDonald July 13, 2012

A lot of people avoid politics because it seems so complex.  And there are plenty of people who make it that way on purpose to keep those very same people from getting involved.  If you are not involved you are more likely to buy into the nonsense or not pay much attention.   But I’m […]

Stephen Colbert’s Campaign Finance Lesson

by Steve MacDonald May 20, 2011

“Why does it get so complicated to do this? I mean, this is page after page of legalese,” Mr. Colbert lamented. “All I’m trying to do is affect the 2012 election. It’s not like I’m trying to install iTunes.”

The Right To Your Money: Nothing ‘Fair’ About It.

by Steve MacDonald April 11, 2011

Now that we’ve determined that Marriage is a civil right, (unless you are too young, too closely related, are already married, to uncivil to be or stay married, or want to remain single) why does a decent wedding (or any wedding) have to cost low income workers as much as 100% of their annual income while “Rich BastardsTM” only have to pay 25% to as little as 2% of theirs?

Union Thuggery -Coming Soon To A State House near You.

by Steve MacDonald March 10, 2011

I was just thinking back to all the loose talk from the left about ending the gun ban in the New Hampshire State House. How they imagined someone just unloading over testimony supporting same sex marriage–to use one example–kids getting cut down in the cross-fire. And how they fell over themselves trying to scare parents into keeping their children from ever visiting the place because it was now just too dangerous.

by Steve MacDonald January 10, 2011

My previous post on the pending investigation of Mike Brunelle was to poke fun at the lefts hypocrisy on the influence of money, anticipate the caterwauling, and suggest a course for clarifying the meaning of the text. In the intervening days, it seems obvious that I left some points out, some made by democrats.

Mike Earmark Brunelle To Be Investigated

by Steve MacDonald January 6, 2011

The democrats are probably already crying like a toddler who just lost their balloon. (Ironic that they wont have to pay a fine.) But we should look at this seriously and in a context that the progressives understand.

There Is A God

by Steve MacDonald December 6, 2010

The first batch of US currency with Tim Geithner’s name on it has been quarantined. About $110 billion in newly printed hundred dollar bills (loaded with new anti-counterfeiting features) were so hi-tech the printing process got screwed up, leaving blank spots on some of the bills. Rather than try to sort them, which an article at Yahoo! News claims would take at least 20 years to do by hand, they will have to set them aside for a year while they work up an automated method of sorting out the bad bills.
