Are YOU Suitable? Governor Hassan Doesn’t think So

by Kimberly Morin August 12, 2015

Governor Hassan vetoed legislation that would have ended almost 100 years of state-sanctioned discrimination. It is now time to override her veto by letting the New Hampshire Senate know Granite Staters will not tolerate the undefined discriminatory practice of ‘suitability’ to continue.

Thumbnail image for NH Senate Action Could Cost Taxpayers Big

The Buffer Zone Repeal was aborted so an unnecessary lawsuit may now move forward – at your expense. Two Republican state Senators, Nancy Stiles (a co-sponsor of the original law) and Jerry Little, sided with every Democrat in the chamber to lock the vote. Republican state Sen. Jeb Bradley voted for the repeal bill, but then quickly […]

NH BOE’s Bill Duncan is lying and working against children and parental rights

by Kimberly Morin May 18, 2015

Today ‘School Choice for New Hampshire’ wrote about the latest compromise in House Bill 323 – “An Act relative to the administration of the statewide assessment program.” Proponents of the original bill want to take local control out of the hands of parents and school boards and have it at a regional level. Opponents are […]

by Kimberly Morin May 18, 2015

Guest post from Michelle Levell: HB 323, the waiver bill, has been an extremely complicated and contentious bill all year. Multiple amendments have been proposed, but only one offered an acceptable compromise, the Bradley amendment, #1572s.

NOTE to Senator Pierce: The 2nd Amendment actually IS a RIGHT in New Hampshire

by Kimberly Morin February 15, 2015

Senator Pierce made a complete fool out of himself during the vote on SB 116, aka ‘Constitutional Carry’, by claiming that it wasn’t a ‘Women’s Rights’ issue.  He insulted New Hampshire women and appears to be the ‘king’ of deciding what issues are women’s rights issues.

‘Constitutional Carry’ passes in NH Senate along party lines

by Kimberly Morin February 12, 2015

Today Senate Bill 116, aka “Constitutional Carry”, was voted on by the full senate. Despite the majority of their constituents wanting them to pass SB 116, Democrats voted how their party leaders told them to vote and voted against it. Senators who were already getting railed for being sexists provided more ammunition today (that deserves […]

Senator Hosmer claimed he’d help domestic abuse victims. He LIED.

by Kimberly Morin February 11, 2015

I don’t know how I happened upon this but back in 2012 I wrote an article about the ‘Most DEPSICABLE political flier in the 2012 election cycle‘.  It was an ad for Senator Hosmer sent out by the vile Ray Buckley (now we know who Hosmer is parroting when he was condescending, sexist and rude […]

by Kimberly Morin February 10, 2015

Yesterday, Susan Olsen, former chairwoman for the Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire and current Legislative Director, sent an email to the entire New Hampshire Senate regarding SB 116 (email below).

Did the NH Senate give birth to the “Speaker Scam” in the House?

by Kimberly Morin December 5, 2014

In what was often an insanely frustrating (the live feed kept going down) and sometimes amusing election for Speaker of the House on Wednesday, Republican Representative Shawn Jasper was elected as Speaker by a majority of Democrats. The majority in the Republican Caucus voted for O’Brien. If you recall, the Republican race for Speaker was […]

by Kimberly Morin June 20, 2014

According to Senate District 8 Republican candidate Jerry Little’s FEC filings, the majority of his support appears to be from his fellow bankers outside of the Senate district.  While it’s not really surprising since Little was a banking industry lobbyist for years, it shows how little support Little has from the grassroots inside of the […]

Part of the dumbing down, or is it just the reprogramming of Americans, seems to be convincing them that just because your government makes you pay more for something that this is not a tax. It is a tax. When the state uses force (threat or risk of punishment for refusing to collect or pay […]

I have been following the New Hampshire Political ruling class efforts to stifle political speech for years.  It is a bipartisan effort to erect barriers to free speech.  So what do you call that?  Almost free speech?  Sort of Free speech?  Selective Free speech?  Speech that’s free but only during the calendar days defined by […]

Women who carry firearms and are encouraged to learn how to use them have a significant advantage over those who have been disarmed by pro-rape Democrats and their Republican abettors.   Weight, strength, even numbers are no guarantee that a woman is an easy target for sexual assault.   She is no longer just another victim.

by Skip January 10, 2014

Once again, Pindell sets them up and I oblige: Will Republicans have to choose between supporting either the gas tax or Medicaid expansion? Why is there even a notion that an “or” should even be in that sentence?  Or even “choose”? That there must be a quid pro quo on orthagonal issues (except that both […]
