Only the RIGHT has Yahoos….so says ABC’s “This Week with Geoge Stephanopolous”

by Skip March 23, 2014

The discussion was about the US Senate elections coming up later on this year and whether or not control would shift to to the Republicans… Sidenote: and Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com is now saying that is a 60% chance that will happen; I’m unsure of that percentage but probably good with his assessment that even […]

You could do a lot of good with a growing economy that results in a state with a nearly Billion Dollar Surplus.  Meanwhile, here in New Hampshire, Democrats are already spending that Medicaid Money and looking for new taxes. Limbaugh cited an Associated Press report run Wednesday on page A14 of the New York Times […]

Pro-Rape Democrats And Their Republican Abettors – (See also SB 244)

by Steve MacDonald March 20, 2014

Women who carry firearms and are encouraged to learn how to use them have a significant advantage over those who have been disarmed by pro-rape Democrats and their Republican abettors.   Weight, strength, even numbers are no guarantee that a woman is an easy target for sexual assault.   She is no longer just another victim. I […]

“Shhh….be quiet…..don’t make waves……go with the flow…”

by Skip March 17, 2014

“…and then you might have a chance to do something”.  That was the advice by an NH House Rep from my town (whose name now escapes me) I was given when I first became politically active with the upshot of that being that IF you sit and learn, and IF you sit and shut up […]

I’ve seen this movie before…Pass Amnesty or Obama will do it anyways

by Skip March 14, 2014

That would be Blazing Saddles (1974), one of the funniest movies of all times (and due to its Political Incorrectness, could never be made today).  And what US Senator Chuckie Schumer said to Republicans was effectively what Cleavon Little did as Sheriff Bart; when threatened to be killed by others, Bart took his own pistol […]

Jenn Coffey joins us in segment three to talk about more issues with expanding Medicaid in New Hampshire.

The Failure of Veteran Senate Republicans

by Tom March 4, 2014

I’m wondering why some of our veteran Senate Republicans are jumping on the easy track to fixing the so-called Medicaid expansion “problem”. Republicans are supposed to lean toward market based, economic oriented solutions and away from entitlement-based fixes, which ultimately our grandchildren, not us, nor the aging Republican Senators (who feel the need to “do something“), will pay for.

RLCNH Pledge to Stop Obamacare in New Hampshire

by Tom February 27, 2014

  The Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire (practically the only NH Republican caucus worth paying attention to), has put together a pledge, for candidates and officer-holders, to declare their commitment to helping stop Obamacare, a “gateway drug to socialism in the Granite State“, in New Hampshire, which could also mean an income tax for us […]

If NH Senate Republicans would like to do some more math on just how much that best-case scenario 10% is going to cost their New Hampshire constituents over the long haul, (Democrats don’t care, by the way) they might want to factor this in as well. c/o The Daily Caller Using government data, in his […]

What Some Senate Republicans Want For New Hampshire

“Those arrested include operators of home care agencies, operators of nurse staffing agencies, office workers and personal care assistants. One woman is accused of bilking taxpayers out of $75 million.” Fraud is a major factor in Medicaid.  Expanding Medicaid will only expand the fraud.   The irony in this is that Medicaid expansion is part of ObamaCare […]

DC Republicans caved: talking “Limited Govt” but giving up on “Unlimited Spending”

by Skip February 12, 2014

What are we doing? Why are the leaders of our party—the party that is supposed to stand for balanced budgets and fiscal sanity—giving up on the fight? Why did our party’s leadership essentially caucus with the Democrats in order to work against us? 2010 was the year that the TEA Party fed furor over the […]

Notable Quote – Brent Bozell

by Susan Olsen February 11, 2014

“Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes. In return they have repeatedly promised not just to stop the liberal assault on our freedoms and our national […]

NH SB 120 The Democrats Long Sought ‘Wall Of Separation’ Between “Free” and “Speech” (Sponsored by Republicans)

by Steve MacDonald February 9, 2014
Thumbnail image for NH SB 120 The Democrats Long Sought ‘Wall Of Separation’ Between “Free” and “Speech” (Sponsored by Republicans)

Rumor has it that the NH Republican majority Senate is ready to dust off Republican sponsored SB 120, and push it through the legislature.  The democrats could not be happier. SB 120 is a bill that redefines what a committee is, and what classifies as an expenditure for the purposes of political speech.  And it […]

Data Point – Another reason why Republicans poll so badly

by Skip January 15, 2014

From Gallup: So, We the People think Government is “the worst of all evils” (thanks, General Stark!) as we continue to lose freedoms (the power to choose for ourselves).  Obamacare is taking our choice away in the area of healthcare.  Dodd-Frank (financial sector) is now starting the nationalization of the banking sector (more on ObamaLoan […]

What Goes Around

by Ed Naile January 10, 2014

Let me get this straight: Elite Establishment Republicans blame an obscure Republican candidate who said something about rape, the Alinsky crowd chose to exploit, and THAT is the reason the Establishment Republicans lost races in 2012. After that “lesson” expert Republican campaign gurus are said to be going about teaching the hillbillies how to deal […]

Senate Democrats Refuse to Fund Veterans Benefits Again

by Steve MacDonald January 10, 2014
Thumbnail image for Senate Democrats Refuse to Fund Veterans Benefits Again

The Powerline title I sourced this from says it all: “Once Again, Democrats Vote to Cut Veterans’ Benefits in Order to Enable Fraud By Illegal Aliens.” “Feeding” the dependents of illegal immigrants who may not even be in America is more important to Senate Democrats than funding Veterans benefits. That is offensive enough, but what […]

This one’s a keeper. The next time some RINO starts crying about the Tea Party ask them if there is anything else that they and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Wacko Chair of the DNC) are both committed to in 2014? Wasserman Schultz is committed to combating that Tea Party in 2014.  It’s that damn gridlock again. […]

“No compromise. No being co-opted”

by Skip December 30, 2013

Democrats and Republicans – “two vultures fighting over a carcass“: Schweizer emphasized that the way to defeat the permanent political class–in particular, the Republican establishment–is to espouse the same “no compromise” approach Reagan espoused toward the Soviet Union. Looking back on 2013, the Tea Party and conservatives garnered victories on a host of issues–such as […]

Income Inequality – but what about our personal choices, Mr. Obama?

by Skip December 26, 2013

President Obama has decided, along with most of the Democrats / Progressives / Socialist, that he must bring the Marxist philosophy of Class Warfare to play – but call it Income Inequality.  After all, who is against inequality of any type?  Who is not for the traditional notion of equality?  Well, those that are out […]

Will NH Senate Republicans Come Out Against the ACA/Medicaid Death Tax?

Something else we might want to ask our cadre of ObamaCare supporting Democrat legislators this election season. 1) Why did you vote for a bill (ACA) knowing that it made insurance so expensive that older middle class citizens who need each other as much or more than ever would be better off divorced as a […]

Skip reminds us that GraniteGrok is becoming the scape-goat of choice for NH-GOP failures.  Just like Democrats Republicans to blame someone else for their own shortcomings.  But I’d like to remind the NH-GOP that GraniteGrok covered the Jeanne Shaheen letter to the IRS story more than a year before the state and national party even […]

We’ve been going on a lot about Medicaid expansion in New Hampshire, and why shouldn’t we?  Both sides are dickering (yes, I actually said dickering) over how to accept other people’s money so that they can then dicker over how to take ours, all in the name of helping people. Far be it form me […]

We know that the uACA (That’s unAffordable Care Act) has already forced millions of jobs out of existence.  With employment suffering from ObamaCare and the looming shadow of the return of the bride of the business mandate portion of the ACA next year, millions more jobs will be erased by Democrat policy.  So what does […]

If she had as much of a shred of compassion for the low-skilled low-wage American worker as she does the illegal aliens that Big Biz, Big Govt, and her palie-walies Maverick and Grahamnesty, she wouldn’t be in as much hot water.  It would have been much better if Kelly Ayotte, she of the “common sense”, […]

Government Did Build That – And it Sucks!

by Steve MacDonald October 24, 2013

One of the things Obama and the Democrats refused to give Republican’s to avoid or end the PR shutdown of the Federal Government was a delay in the individual mandate.  Businesses got one.  They thought it only fair that the law apply equally to all.  Everyone should get the same delay privileges.  Democrats disagreed and […]
