by Steve MacDonald August 19, 2014

Budget Writers Did Not Anticipate…

by Steve MacDonald August 18, 2014

Budget writers did not anticipate…human nature, actually.  They never do.   The Democrat parties top-down, centrally-planned utopia completely ignores human nature, which is why Conservatives get so aggravated with Democrats and then Republicans who play along (whether they have bought in or given up). From Skip’s post last night on unexpected budget issues relating to Medicare […]

Woodstock Laughingstock

by Tom August 14, 2014

This is one beer that I know I will never, ever buy again.  I never drank much of it in the first place – and I won’t again.  I also encourage anyone with a drop of conservative blood in their body to stop buying it and to pass the word along to others. The apparent […]

Democrats are running as Republicans in Goffstown, NH.  The Town committee knows it.  The Hillsborough County Republican Committee knows it.  Elected Republicans know it, and some have been vocal about the problem.  But no one in Republican party leadership seems willing or able to do anything about it. This is an ongoing problem in Goffstown, […]

Yet Another False Prophet – Steve Hattamer

by Tom July 30, 2014

When is this insanity going to end?  We find ourselves with yet another New Hampshire Republican office seeker who has donated sums of money to Democrats, buttering both sides of his bread. A couple weeks ago, I wrote about Gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein, donating a ton of money to homesteader-RINOs like Charlie Bass and John McCain, […]

Thumbnail image for Cell Phone Ban Nothing More Than An Arbitrary Tax – New Evidence Confirms

Let’s assume for a moment that the members of the NH Legislature that voted for HB 1360 (Restricting the use of cell phones in motor vehicles) are almost, but not quite as smart as they think they are. Even under these more than gracious circumstances, voting to ask law enforcement to randomly fine people in […]

Nothing starts a conversation like a blog that questions the appropriateness of “party leaders” names appearing on mailers paid for by one candidate in a primary of several.  Maybe not? In this case it was necessary. And, to play into my lede, there was a good deal of conversation at the link above and over […]

Yes, A Push Poll Would BE Illegal

by Steve MacDonald July 11, 2014

File under ‘Nuance.’ Rumor has it the Lambert campaign may have taken issue with my calling their poll a push poll, twice.  Or was it three times?  A push poll would be illegal. If it were to go to court, they might have a case, but quite often it is a matter of envelopes being […]

The arrogance of Walt Havenstein

by Tom July 6, 2014

There’s been a lot of talk about Walt Havenstein lately.  No, not because he’s a candidate for Governor.  Of course, video recently surfaced where he makes an insulting comment about the Tea Party – the very people he purports to respect and hopes (needs) to have vote for him in the coming September primary.

James O’Keefe was supposed to be a surprise guest for our live broadcast from the Londonderry Fish and Game Club but he arrived after the show, right before we started shooting.  Good for him (he got to shoot almost everything there, and there was a lot).

Papa “Pimp” Smurf and Scott Brown

by Tom June 20, 2014

There’s a big shindig coming up at the Tuscan Kitchen in Salem this Monday.

It’s looking like the kick-off for the “Charge of the RINO Brigade” (or “RINOs Gone Wild @#!“) in […]

Voter ID is popular with everyone except the left-wing fringe. But the hard left took over the Democrat party and now runs things.  One of the things they run is a narrative machine which insists that expecting people to show ID to vote (that photo-thingy they demand you use to access everything in life including […]
