by Steve MacDonald April 6, 2014
Thumbnail image for Democrat War on Work – What Do You Mean ‘Where Have The Workers Gone?’

Democrats are not the party of work, or the American family.  Their ‘American Dream’ is a nation crowded with dependents. Under Democrat rule work force participation has plummeted while government dependence has skyrocketed. There is no mystery.  Millions or worker did not “vanish from the workforce.”  They were driven out by a sustained, regulatory assault […]

Notable Quote – John Wright

by Susan Olsen April 2, 2014

“Because Leftism is the theory that truth is impossible, and reason is a hate-crime, it requires self deception. Because self deception provokes guilt and humiliation, the self esteem of the Leftist is continually uncertain. Because it is uncertain, it must be uplifted. The only emotion loud and broad enough to smother the powerful emotions of […]

The problem with Progressives is that they REALLY think that human nature “has progressed”.

by Skip March 23, 2014

They really believe their own PR: So much for that “Post Cold War” historical period we’re supposed to be in, eh?  Once again, Progressives not understanding that human nature IS just that – human nature.  It hasn’t changed over thousands of years on its own – there is that innate feeling that some have that […]

The Scourge Of Regional Planning Simplified…Almost

by Steve MacDonald March 23, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Scourge Of Regional Planning Simplified…Almost

Democrats lied to pass ObamaCare and continue to lie as it fails on all points because it could never be anything more than a big unwieldy machine that denied you choices.  ObamaCare took what worked for you, made it unworkable, then forced you to find a way to comply. And while we can debate just […]

Guest Post by Radical Moderate: “Obamacare is a direct attack against the middle class.”

by Skip March 22, 2014

Obamacare is a direct attack against the middle class. The ‘poor’ receive free healthcare. The level of those considered ’poor’ has just risen dramatically here in New Hampshire thanks to Medicaid expansion and with no limitation on Medicaid eligible people relocating to New Hampshire causing the level to only rise higher. The ‘wealthy’ can afford to pay for healthcare. Wealthy defined […]

“I used to be indecisive but now I am not quite sure.”  —Tommy Cooper And George Canning once quipped, “Indecision and delays are the parents of failure.” The Establishment wing of Republican party has now spiraled down into the abyss of emulating liberal, progressive Democrats in some if not the majority of their votes.

Notable Quote – Christopher Chantrill

by Susan Olsen March 18, 2014

“You see, liberals, a world without personal responsibility is not a Kumbaya world of fuzzy collective consensus. It is a world wrenched back in time to the rule of the patriarch or its modern derivative, the charismatic lightbringer. In the age of cities, science, markets, commerce, it fails every time it’s been tried. But you […]

Progressives: you have NO right to be left alone – ever. EVAH!

NH State Senator Kathy Sgambati (D-Tilton): “Everybody in the chamber respects personal freedoms and individual rights…[BUT] We’re also trying to ensure that all citizens in the state have the protection they need.

The Republican party has no interest in receiving advice from me, and not just because we’re not exactly on speaking terms.  As a rule, I don’t speak to ‘The Party” I speak to folks who run as Republicans, activists, and voters, who may or may not be Republicans but have traditionally prefered what Republicans run […]

From Stephen Green: Green is remarking on how Japan’s “buy your way to prosperity binge” has failed miserably and what the real solution is… Deregulate. Simplify the tax code. Protect the value of your currency. Those three steps are all it takes to achieve prosperity, but as Glenn Reynolds like to say, politicians don’t like […]

With few exceptions, typically at the very (very) local level Politics is expensive.  That’s why incumbents have a natural advantage.   They already have name recognition.  They are able to use their connections to amass war-chests of cash with which to engage in campaigning.    And campaigning is nothing more than paid political speech.  So to complete […]

Democrats ignore the hundreds of millions the Koch brothers give to charity every year, to the arts, and large donations to non-political purposes, preferring to focus on their political giving as a locus around which to organize left-wing hate. That “locus” has dropped to new lows.  Unions, who spend a lot more than the Koch […]

The current effort in the New Hampshire legislature to ban cell phone use in your car apparently turns on some rather unimpressive statistics.  Apparently, less than 3 in 10 fatal accidents in our state might somehow be connected to distracted driving.  They can’t be certain that distraction was the cause, but it may have been.  […]

The Green Goblins are out doing their chicken-little imitations about the drought in California.    They are blaming the mystical exhaled spirits.  The invisible Green gods that inhabit the sky. The gods are angry and they are punishing us by making the globe hotter, and it will keep getting hotter (even though global temperatures are still […]

“The Progressives, as Marxists like to call themselves, have had it pretty much their way for a hundred years now. Wilson’s era brought us the Federal Reserve and the IRS, and took state representation away from  the Senate. Franklin Roosevelt’s era brought us the welfare state, “rule by commerce clause”, big unions and the military-industrial […]
