New Hampshire Democrats Demand More Money For A Problem They Don’t Want to Solve

by Steve MacDonald April 19, 2018

New Hampshire is getting another $3.1 Million to combat the opioid crisis. US News is reporting that New Hampshire’s All Gurl Delegation, Democrat x four, says it is not enough. New Hampshire’s delegation had urged President Donald Trump’s administration to revise the formula used to allocate funding so it prioritizes states like New Hampshire that […]

California’s Poison Your Friends and Family Plan

by Steve MacDonald April 12, 2018

Given all I’ve written about MS-13, opioids, and sanctuary cities and states lately, this cartoon boils the California problem down to a national defense issue. We can’t secure the border, address the opioid crisis, or any of the gang violence it perpetuates as long as California is a conduit for drugs, gang members, and the cartels that […]

When Democrats Take Back Congress They Will Repeal Tax Reform

by Steve MacDonald April 9, 2018

Nancy Pelosi announced that one of the first things Democrats will do when they regain control is to repeal and replace recent Republican Tax reforms. And she promises it will be bipartisan and done in daylight, (unlike healthcare reform, I guess). So, what might that look like? If previous proposals are any indication, Pelosi plans on […]

The Opioid Crisis – Are Democrats Using it to Grow Government?

by Steve MacDonald March 27, 2018

The heroine, Fentanyl, Carfentanyl problem, crisis, war, however you would like to frame it, has, for our purposes, three positions. First, it is national security crisis. Second, it is a domestic enforcement crisis. And third, it is the addiction-treatment-recovery crisis. Democrats oppose the first two and demand money for the third.

Do Modern Democrats Vote for Anything That Will Make Government Smaller?

by Steve MacDonald February 8, 2018

Decriminalizing marijuana sounds like is a liberty issue. Not so for Democrats. Addressing the opioid epidemic is sold as an issue of compassion, but to the professional left, it is an opportunity. Sex trafficking, repackaged and sold as a matter of freedom under the banner of legalized prostitution is not about freedom at all. And the Progressive obsession […]

I guess it isn’t just the NH GOP that sucks

by Skip July 2, 2017

From my friend and loyal reader (emphasis mine): Skip – thought you’d appreciate the irony. After OH voters rejected marijuana on the Nov ballot, our Republican legislature passed it anyway – too much money at stake. If you’re rich enough and can grow in large qtys, you can apply for a license.  Still illegal for […]

There’s something New Hampshire Democrats value more than the “Heroin epidemic?” Yes, abortion! Oh, and this, For all the bluster from politicians attempting to outbid each other on the opioid issue, it is telling that Democrats would walk away from the issue the instant it required asking state retirees to chip in for their health […]

Hassan is playing ‘doctor’ again: Treating all NH citizens like drug addicts

by Kimberly Morin September 4, 2015

Yesterday Governor Hassan sent out a press release that calls for more mandates on prescribing physicians when it comes to opioids. ‘Doctor Hassan’ somehow believes that inserting herself in between a doctor and a patient is somehow going to stop drug abuse in the state. To date, none of her initiatives have done anything to […]
