by Ed Naile December 5, 2014

During a time of increasing public cynicism, recognizing and honoring the treachery of our political leaders has never been more important.

Conservatives, even w/this Wave, always keep in mind what ALL politicians really are

by Skip November 5, 2014

From Prof. Don Boudreaux over at Café Hayek (emphasis mine): I advise freedom-loving and free-market-appreciating Americans (of which I am unashamedly one) to be good Tullockians about the results of yesterday’s landslide wins for the G.O.P.  The Republicans who won those elections are, after all, politicians – and it is the rare politician, of whatever […]

Americans believe their #1 problem is Big Government and Politicians

by Skip August 19, 2014

Gallup: When you look at the most important non-economic issues identified by Americans….  …ask yourself – who or what controls those first 4 items?  Yes, that would be politicians and Government.  Dissatisfaction comes from when expectations are not met or basic functions are not performed well.  Yet, we keep hearing from the Left that Government […]

Minimum Wage Laws Help Politicians Not Workers

by Don May 20, 2014

Have the basic laws of economics changed? Lew Henry from Gilmanton Iron Works (see his 5/7/2014 letter in the Laconia Daily Sun (laconiadailysun.com)) apparently thinks so and other Progressives, from President Obama to Mitt Romney, agree. They say that raising the minimum wage will create jobs. Progressives want us to believe that employers who don’t […]

“Bedazzlement fixes nothing”

by Susan Olsen February 18, 2014

Like no one else can, ‘Ol Remus sums it up.  In it’s entirety. ‘The Wreck of the Old 1792 We don’t have an economy, we have the wreckage of an economy. It’s studied  as a coroner studies a corpse, to determine when and how it died. And because we believe in equal opportunity idiocy,   medicine […]

Does Government Exist for the Politicians or for Citizens?

by Don March 21, 2013

The Belknap County Convention demonstrated the clash of two different interests, both committed to fulfilling our County’s obligations.  One group considered the burden on property owners, renters, and others who pay the County’s bills.  The other group represents government employees, unions, and other special interests which benefit from the money taken from taxpayers. This year, […]

Illegal Immigration Benefits Politicians, Employers, and Union Bosses, and Hurts Everyone Else

by Don February 9, 2013

Donna Brazile’s column in Wednesday’s (2/6/13) “The Citizen”,  www.citizen.com, is typical of liberal writings, an attempt to mislead the American people.  Brazile inappropriately interweaves legal and illegal immigration benefits and falsifies immigration enforcement effectiveness. Immigration laws have not been changed because the American people believe in the rule of law and in real “Fairness”.  It […]

Politicians like Obama help Murderers at Schools like Newtown

by Don January 16, 2013

Why are killers at public schools like Newtown able to kill so many people?  They didn’t use military grade assault or automatic weapons.  Few or none used large capacity magazines.  They killed so many people because they had lots of time to shoot lots of bullets. They had so much time because politicians made schools […]

Mencken…

by Susan Olsen January 4, 2013

The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they […]

Really Getting it Straight on Right to Work

by Don July 6, 2011

RTW is not anti-Union, it does not force anyone to leave a union, it does not prevent anyone from joining a union, it does not stop workers from forming a union. However, RTW is pro-worker. It forces unions to provide services that workers value in order to get and keep members.

Support Right-to-Work

by Don May 13, 2011

Forcing workers to pay tribute to earn a living is slavery, it is immoral and un-American.
Forced unionization puts worker interests below the interests of union bosses and politicians.
Tell NH Senators and Representatives to over-ride Governor Lynch’s veto of the Right-to-Work law!

Wisconsin Protesters

by Don March 3, 2011

To the Editor:   Many of the people protesting on Saturday don’t even understand what they are doing.  They talk about “Worker’s Rights” (which I support).  But they have been duped into protesting for public sector  “Union rights”, the right of unions to conspire with politicians against the interests of the American people.      President Franklin […]
