Notable Quote – Elaine Andrews-Ahearn

by Susan Olsen December 21, 2014

“I think people are so unbelievably unsophisticated,” Andrews-Ahearn said. “They do not pay attention to the elections, they do not know who they are voting for and they do not vote. We refer to this problem as ‘low information voters,’ and it’s a huge problem in the state of New Hampshire.”

Texas is booming – thank cheap energy!

by Skip September 28, 2014

The money part was the focus – but it was the last line that should catch EVERYONE’s attention (and then think about it) The economists had predicted just last year that they expected the total economic impact to South Texas to be $89 billion in 2022. Instead, they now estimate that the impact has already […]

Thumbnail image for Stiles “Takes The Lead” in Advancing the Liberal Democrat Agenda

Nancy Stiles has another mailer out, in which she is sold as a leader who is tough on Liberal Democrats.  (I almost spit my coffee out I laughed so hard.) The mailer obviously says things Republicans would like to hear from or about a candidate but all of that pales next to the one thing […]

Where Are The Anti-Liberty Inquisitors Hiding?

Thumbnail image for Where Are The Anti-Liberty Inquisitors Hiding?

Do you remember the Our State Project and FreeState Watch?  These were fledgling inquisitions operated by modern-day Torquemadas of the so-called non-profit progressive left.  Their mission was to find and persecute non-progressives by labeling them as ideological infidels; opponents of the endless, debt-driven expansion of the  taxpayer funded Democrat Ummah.  After all, who would want […]

Problem is, Obama has said stuff like this before

by Skip June 27, 2014

This just struck me the wrong way, but given the attitude he exudes, I’m not surprised: Obama Jokes about Executive Order to Make Boys Play It’s funny, because President Obama issues a lot of orders. “And last month, three young girls wrote to me that boys aren’t fair because they don’t pass the ball in gym […]

US Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), too. from NYC 2012 stats: Black babies born alive: 24,758 Black babies killed via abortion: 31,328 A throw away culture – a segregationist’s delight if the words of Margaret Sanger are to be believed.  Let me paraphrase: […]

The Non-Objective Progressive masks slips in the media: “Reprehensive Party of FL”

by Skip February 2, 2014

From Big Journalism: “NBC does it again, this time through a Miami affiliate that broadcast a graphic (see above) that read: “Reprehensive Party of Florida.” You have to ask yourself what kind of culture there is at NBC News that makes staffers believe that dehumanizing Republicans in this way is okay. This isn’t a one-off. […]

Progressives, In Practice, Cling To The Antiquated

by Scott Morales November 27, 2013
Thumbnail image for Progressives, In Practice, Cling To The Antiquated

Progressives are regressive. They are people that are truly mired in ideological bog, unwilling to adapt to the world that is. Anyone whose had the pleasure to read the Grok for any stretch of time is surely to have noticed the word “regressive” mordantly used in place of “Progressive” when referring to those that characterize […]

The Con’s Detonation

The idol burst and sprayed angled shards and fragments over the podium and media landscape, burrowing sharply into the souls and hearts of his acolytes. Puncturing dreams and deflating hopes quicker than a set of Michelins backing over a spike strip on a quick get away. You can see it everywhere. On the lefty shows. […]

Blogline of the Day: “…applied Boombergism”

by Skip October 29, 2013

“You can keep your insurance if but only if you buy the insurance that we think you ought to have,’ which reveals the part of ObamaCare that is applied Bloombergism.” Well, when I watched “Special Report” tonite and heard George Will say that line, I told myself that I had to transcribe it – and […]

Succumbing to Democrat identity politics will not work out well

by Skip September 22, 2013

“We have to reach out to this group in order to win and show that we’re hip!” “NO!  Now we have to reach out to this other group”.    “Wait!  You’re forgetting this other one – it’s important because it contains a whole 2% of the voter population!” Yuck.  This coming from Republicans as we […]

by Skip September 13, 2013

Rep. Bob Kingsbury Is Turning In His Grave How does a public servant who has been an Attorney, Judge, and Representative of the NH House, come up with a “tribute” editorial for a fellow representative which offers such profound prejudice?  Serving with Rep.

Where Piers Morgan shows he doesn’t ‘get’ the US Constitution – again

by Skip September 12, 2013

Piers, Piers, Piers – you of all people should know the phrase containing “and dispel all doubt”.  A recent tweet on his favorite hobby horse (the Socialist / Statist mantra that citizens should be disarmed) shows a serious lack of understanding of the underlying philosophy of the US Constitution.  The Founders were careful with their […]

Notable Quote – Radical Moderate

by Skip August 14, 2013

I just put this up about perceived differences between how Conservatives see people vs Progressives.  A frequent commenter by the name of Radical Moderate just left a great illustration: The economy has collapsed and the country is thrown into chaos.

You Would be Right to Question Democrat Motives or Competence

There is great value in ensuring that there are ample “entry-level” employment opportunities all across America, particularly in the current economy.  By entry-level I mean low wage positions that allow employers to take more risks with less skilled workers they are willing to train.  Let’s call it the employment equivalent of a property owner willing […]

Quick Thought – Oh, Steve…..

by Skip July 9, 2013

Two snippets from Grokster Steve’s post “Lunch Racists Bail On Michelle-O” caught my eye (emphasis mine): The Government limits the choices by force of law but human nature (and natures laws) trump man made laws every time so the kids end up skipping the Michelle-O in favor of quick alternatives.   So the law effectively creates […]

School districts from LA to NY are complaining and now a few of them are taking matters into their own hands. “We’re eating more junk food, now, than last year”, a student from the Los Angeles Unified School District explained in December of 2011.

The New Hampshire Citizens Alliance (NHCA) and the New Hampshire Citizens Alliance for Action (NHCAA) have been pretending to operate as a grassroots, non-partsian, group with tax exempt status for years.  This is not only untrue it is virtually impossible.

Data Point – IRS targeting: 6 Progressive groups, 292 TEA Party groups

by Skip June 28, 2013

Like we see all the time, Progressives will yell, scream, cry, and wail if there is even an appearance that they have stubbed their own toe!  We’ve been listening to their “Me, too! Me, too!  IRS went after us just as much as you homophobic, anarchist, bigoted, misogynist, cold-hearted, oppressing Neanderthals (not that they should […]

Sorry Lee Nyquist, Jeanne Shaheen is NOT a Moderate Senator

by Steve MacDonald June 12, 2013

Before I expose the fraud perpetrated by Democrat Lee Nyquist in the Union Leader this past week, where he gushed about how Jeanne Shaheen is this respected, put together, moderate Senator, I have a quick question. If George Bush can be blamed almost a decade later for the Obama Administration Bureaucracy engaging in unprecedented intrusions […]

Dean Trefethen – Dover, Only NH Mayor To Stand with Nanny Bloomberg

First, thanks to Kathleen LaBonte, who pointed out in the comments for this post, ‘Legal Gun Owners Against Stupid Gun Grabbing Mayors,‘ that Dover, New Hampshire Mayor Dean Trefethen is the only mayor in all of New Hampshire to climb on board Mike ‘Buckshot’ Bloomberg’s anti-gun owner clown car.

I know that Progressive NH Dems need to take Private Property away from other to feel good about themselves…

by Skip September 25, 2012

Grokster Steve reports about NH Dems and a fascination with baseball bats.  We all know about how much NH Dems wish to redistribute other peoples’ private property (rich, middle-class, no matter as it all belongs to us Progressive anyways) to feel that they have forced others to participate in their Utopian ideas of a perfect […]
