Henniker Hate-mailer Says Howdy

by Ed Naile April 1, 2015

If you take the position that hate mailers might have a mental disorder then you probably pray the hate-mailer would seek professional help, right? I have a suggestion for a way that a person who sends hate mail can begin traveling the road to recovery. (I borrow from some addiction lingo I have heard from […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip March 16, 2015

Shot: from an email, back from 2013, on a report from a meeting where NH Senate plans on endorsing Obamacare were being discussed: I arrived just in time to hear an influential member of the board saying (I’m paraphrasing here) what a great plan it was and the only people who would not want to accept […]

‘Let’s Destroy Liberal Academia’

by Steve MacDonald March 5, 2015

If you had not figured it out yet, the Government takeover of Student loans was both a sop and to control and protect the redistribution of billions nationally and annually.   To enrich an army of left-wing intellectual moon-bats, legitimize dopey progressive ideas with federal grants, and to recycle taxpayer backed dollars through the white tower […]

Is Rudy Right? And Why is the Left Freaking Out Over It?

by Scott Morales February 22, 2015

When you go around criticizing Sam incessantly, apologizing for Sam over and over again, publicly hound Sam on his past failings it should come as no surprise that the people who see this behavior would conclude: “This guy is really not a fan of Sam.” And that’s precisely what Rudy Guiliani did this past week.

Hey, I’d get a coupla slurps back from that cuppa coffee Big Govt spenders keep wanting me to fork over!

by Skip February 19, 2015

The tasty part is at the bottom of this Concord Fishwrap piece: Under the bill, that money would be returned to ratepayers. It comes out to a savings of roughly 16 cents per month for the average ratepayer. So what is this about?  The Big Govt people are always telling us that the new program’s […]

Gosh, these words could have been written by Michael Kitsch (Laconia Daily Sun reporter)

by Skip February 17, 2015

When I read this post about the Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis (a socialist, btw) in his demands that Europe send even more money to Greece (because GREECE!), all I could think of was a screaming match I had one night with Michael Kitsch over the fact that Irefused, as a Budget Committee member, to tax […]

Liberals Love Violence

by Steve MacDonald February 11, 2015
Thumbnail image for Liberals Love Violence

We’ve observed on these pages repeatedly that the left’s opposition to private gun ownership has nothing to do with violence as they describe it.   Opposition to private gun ownership creates more of the violence they say they wish to prevent. It is no secret that the liberal elites have no problem with guns.  They are […]

If You Let Progressives Touch It They Will Kill It

I can’t imagine a better “template” for the relationship between progressives and everything else. Last year New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was allowed to handle a ground hog and it died as a result of internal injuries. This year Mayor Train-wreck was not be allowed to touch it.  The zoo secured the Groundhog […]

Bill Whittle – USA #1 in guns but to dismay of Progressives, far from being #1 in murders

by Skip January 25, 2015

 #1 – Per capita gun rate: 90 / 100 citizens in America #1 – Per capita murder rate:  90 / 100 citizens in HONDURAS (with socialist gun control laws) At 4.7 murders / 100,000 citizens, USA is only #111.  Out of 218 reporting countries: Tell me, Progressives, what would that last figure be if you […]

If You Have An Orange Boehner Lasting More Than 4 Years…

by Mike January 6, 2015

The Republic Might Be In Need Of A Doctor! Rather than a good old “Yoho Heave-ho” or going with Gohmert, the cowards in the US House voted with few exceptions (who will undoubtedly be punished until morale improves) to return the gavel to John Boehner for a fifth term in today’s public rollcall vote. Those […]

Does Chairman Ray Buckley Even Know He Is A Racist?

New Hampshire Democrat chair Raymond Buckley supports raises for public union employees regardless of the state of the economy.  He has never once complained nor concerned himself (to my knowledge) about Congressional raises under Democrat majorities.  But now he is appalled at the idea that Republicans in the US Senate opposed a minimum wage increase […]

Progressives are Liberals but are not liberal – their actions show they, in reality, are tyrants

by Skip December 30, 2014

And remember, EVERY Progressive is a socialist…in this, they perfectly fit the definition of Orwellianism – they use the same words as everyone else but mean them to mean other meanings – bastardizing the common language so as to advance a leftist / socialist agenda.  They can’t be honest to us or to our common […]

Notable Quote – Ludwig von Mises

by Susan Olsen November 11, 2014

“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they […]

Why Democrats hate the TEA Party, why Socialists hate Liberty folks

by Skip October 29, 2014

Evil.  It exists in the real world and many of us can recognize it.  However, in the ever-increasing political polarization here in America, there certainly is one set of folks that truly believes that evil actually exists.  No, for these people it is not that commit heinous crimes.  It is not those that advocate killing […]

Dueling Headlines – Obama Admin’s Public Masters still trying to shove its agenda down our throats

Here’s what “our betters” want us to believe: EPA chief: Public tired of debating climate change Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy said Friday that the public does not want more “debate or discussion” about climate change, but government action.  “First, people overwhelmingly consider climate change to be a problem—and they want action, not […]

Epic Acts of Political Cowardice – Jeanne Shaheen, proving that in the Collective, no one is at fault

by Skip October 25, 2014

for ANYTHING at ANYTIME on ANY ISSUE: “There were 60 of us!” I missed this line when I listened to the debate on WBIN / NH1 between US Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Scott Brown.  Never, ever, ever will Progressives EVER take responsibility (er, shouldn’t THAT be a clue to the hollowness of their philosophy?) for failing programs.  […]

Campaign Finance limitations – dumb idea; $$ for messaging still doesn’t translate to votes

by Skip October 15, 2014

There’s Larry Lessig’s PAC, the MayDay PAC, that is raising and spending millions of dollars this election cycle – to stop others from spending so much money.  So, too, is George Soro’s son.  The Left is as well.  Sorry, their stated of “taking the money out”, I believe, masks the real reason – stopping free […]

The tour is called “Protecting All Women” yet when women who aren’t far left wing gun grabbers attempted to sit in on the meeting, they were asked to leave. Not only was the whereabouts of the […]

Under Skip’s ongoing updates about the GOP Platform (not being updated), the subject of abortion, naturally, came up.  One comment took a familiar tack: Life may start at conception, but the fact is that the child’s life is not covered by the Constitution until its born and hits American soil. What the mother of an […]

Notable Quote – F.A. Hayek on Adam Smith

[Adam] Smith’s chief concern was not so much with what man might occasionally achieve when he was at his best but that he should have as little opportunity as possible to do harm when he was at his worst.  It would scarcely be too much to claim that the main merit of individualism which he […]

A reminder from Weekend Pundit who environmentalists really are:

by Skip September 15, 2014

So true, so true: Along with the above story, there’s this from Powerline digging into the lies the watermelon environmentalists tell themselves in order to keep working to impoverish everyone….except themselves. There’s an old line that environmentalists are “watermelons”–green on the outside, red on the inside. A lot of environmentalists will take great offense if you say […]

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip August 18, 2014

…Progressives say corporations using inversions are unpatriotic, which is amusing. When the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision stipulated that Americans do not forfeit their First Amendment right to political advocacy when they act together through corporations (including, and especially, incorporated nonprofit advocacy groups), progressives ridiculed the idea that corporations should be treated as people. Now, progressives charge that corporations resorting […]
