by Steve MacDonald May 8, 2018

Democrat New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has been accused of abusing women. Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam “allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent,” read the report […]

Blogline of the Day – this is what happens when you can’t do math

by Skip September 30, 2017

Or even simple arithmetic baffles you.  Before you read the line, remember that the top 1% pay almost 39% of income taxes. NEW YORK TIMES FINDS A FLAW IN TRUMP’S TAX-REFORM PLAN: “The plan would not benefit lower-income households that do not pay federal income taxes.” Sigh.  Well, given that the NYT has been running a […]

NY High Court: No state constitutional right to assisted suicide

by Steve MacDonald September 7, 2017

New York’s Highest Court says there is no constitutional right to assisted suicide. An Excerpt of the Decision care of the Volokh Conspiracy. We have consistently adopted the well-established distinction between refusing life-sustaining treatment and assisted suicide. The right to refuse medical intervention is at least partially rooted in notions of bodily integrity, as the right […]

New York Times Named After a City Named After a Slave-Trading Racist

by Steve MacDonald August 19, 2017

The list of things the Democrats and their thugs must insist we change (remove, destroy) because “slavery” (symbols of Hate!) grows by the day. This time it’s New York. The State, the City, and everything else that sounds similar. The Daily Caller reminded everyone that New York is named after the former Duke of York, James Stuart, who […]

Gov. Sununu Calls Climate Alliance “quasi-meaningless” “political statement.”

by Steve MacDonald July 28, 2017

Thank you, Governor Sununu! (PolitiFact) When [ NH Gov. Chris Sununu] was asked whether he’d sign onto the United States Climate Alliance – a state-level agreement to uphold the objectives of the Paris climate accord developed after the U.S. withdrew from the latter – he bristled. In an interview with New Hampshire Public Radio, Sununu […]

New York’s AG has decreed that donations to non-profits over $5,000.00 be made public. Myron Magnet, writing at City Journal, had some insightful thoughts on that, then closed with this. [James] Madison would not get the joke that the Constitution’s imagined “right to privacy” allows unrestricted abortion but doesn’t protect anonymous donations to those advocating […]

Make New York Grate Again?
Cruz Ad Nails Trump’s Support Of DeBlasio

by Mike April 15, 2016

A page from The Donald’s playbook? Doubling down when challenged? He’s not going to win liberals and RINOs anyway, so Cruz goes for the jugular of Trump’s liberalism – Donald’s effusive support for Dinkin-eque Mayor, ‘His Dishonor’, Bill DeBlasio. GREAT for New York, Eh? The NY Post begs to differ, and Cruz’ ad piles on […]

Not unexpectedly, however… Former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been convicted on federal corruption charges, ending a legendary Albany power broker’s political career and giving a signal victory to Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s campaign to clean up the Capitol.

Patriots Grumble Thread – Week 2

by Steve MacDonald September 21, 2015
Thumbnail image for Patriots Grumble Thread – Week 2

Defensive guru Rex Ryan, the much heralded top-shelf Buffalo Bills defense (and the Bills’ “noisy 12th man”), held Tom Brady and the Patriots to a pathetic 500 plus yards of total offense and only 40 points. Who says talking smack doesn’t pay-off in the NFL? If that rookie offensive line of the Patriots had been […]

Sign Of The Times

by Ed Naile June 14, 2015

As I drive around my area of NH and see the Obama Economy in action, an idea for a small business evolved in my mind. I’m thinking real estate will be the next big thing. How about this for a killer small business: long lasting “FOR SALE BY OWNER” real estate signs that are guaranteed […]

Why suffer when Progressive Paradises are so close?

by Don May 20, 2014

Last weekend I traveled through beautiful parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. These nearby beautiful states do all the things that New Hampshire Progressives/Liberals/Socialists complain that New Hampshire doesn’t do. It’s a shame that we have so many unhappy citizens when these Progressive paradises are so close. Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York have huge […]

Toyota is moving from California to Texas

by Skip April 28, 2014

And so did my company just a bit ago! Yeah California – you moved a company that US-based itself in California since it came here from Japan in the 1950’s.  I guess the mounting taxes and regulations made it easy to hear the siren sound of Gov. Rick Perry’s call for a more business friendly environment […]

“…governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

by Skip March 24, 2014

The full line from the US Declaration of Independence is: “That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”  Meaning that the American philosophy that we allow ourselves (we give our consent) to be governed by our elected Representatives.  Which also means that there […]

New AR-15 That is Legal In New York State

New York State banned guns that look mean, by defining what the scary bits were.  (Ooh, that thingy makes the other part look dangerous, we don’t want rifles with those on them, that’s bad.).  So…gun shops and machinists went to work and built an AR-15 that includes none of the scary restricted parts that were […]

New Hampshire, and Molon Labe in New York

by Tim Condon March 3, 2013

New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Democrat-dominated state legislature there have passed a law mandating that an estimated one million “assault rifles” must be registered with the police by April 15, 2014. The law was passed in the temporary hysteria…

Maybe the start of a Revolution? Another firearms company to leave NY Govt to its own firearm devices (or not)

by Skip February 15, 2013

LaRue Tactical.  Olympic Arms.  Now a third firearms company, York Arms,  is saying that what is bad for civilians is going to be bad for Government entities and Law Enforcement agencies in New York due to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new law (hey, he was all but frothing at the mouth to get this, so let […]

There are Thousands of Left Wing Ironies in the Naked City…This is Just One of Them.

by Steve MacDonald January 20, 2013

If Governor Cuomo was Veruca Salt would it sound like this…”I want the stricter gun legislation  now Daddy!” Well he got it, and the State of New York’s Blue-Print, fast tracked gun legislation is the poster child for the “we must do something now” crowd and exemplifies–unintentionally I might add–the kind of “equality” progressives believe […]

Heh! Just remember, NY residents – we have no income or sales taxes here. We still like guns, too

“the MinuteMen would have make “the swishing sound heard ’round the world” with the swords they would have been left with in NY” Well, at least while we can still beat off the attacks of the transplanted Progressives now here in NH who hate people keeping their own money (that’s cheating Government, dontcha know!) and […]

We need to get them relocated to NH……….

In his first Annual Message to Congress in 1790, George Washington said: ”A free people ought not only to be armed but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well digested plan is requisite: And their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories, as tend to render them independent on others, for […]

Once again, Republican politicians deciding that they have the right to shut down private speech.

by Skip May 24, 2012

Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech… Back to “Really, Judd?” But what is the point, if you govern out of control, at cross-odds to Constitutional philosophy, once you get there, as the Democrats now wish to? Oops, this time, its Republicans showing a lack of knowledge of Constitutional values – and respect […]

Taxpayers On The ‘Rack’

by Steve MacDonald January 26, 2012

I have a question for progressives.  If a fetus is just a lump of tissue, isn’t abortion just another form of plastic surgery? You can’t even find a Democrat willing to admit the procedure is not elective.  It’s woman’s choice, yes? And if you’ve ever gotten an unwanted earful from some feminis, going on  about […]

Turner & Amodei Win – Referendum?

by Steve MacDonald September 14, 2011

You know as well as I that it is only a referendum when a Democrat wins, so the special elections to fill two US House seats, the ones that resulted in two Republican Wins, not a referendum. Dope slap, bitch slap, slam dunk, home run, owned; these are more appropriate descriptions of what happened last night, particularly in the cold blue underbelly of the Big Apple.

RGGI’s proponents claimed it would be good for the environment, which was only true if the “environment” was one littered with taxpayer financed slush funds whose purposes were as ephemeral as the lefts idea of rights or justice. And Carbon trading to reduce emissions was already a well known lie that ten years of cap and trade in Europe had already proved demonstrably false.
