Patriot fans tell the Patriot players who took a knee what they think of them

by Skip September 26, 2017

Boston is a patriotic place – this is the area of the country where the “Shot heard ’round the world” was fired when the British Redcoats were sent to disarm the colonials.  A ragtag militia of 70 odd ordinary male citizens stood up to a mass of 700 British regulars – the finest army in […]

Memorial Day – Respect

by Skip May 29, 2017

I shed a tear There is a bond (even if perceived as a rivalry) between those that have served in our military that I, and most of us, will never share.  Looking back, I wish I had to better understand that rivalry, and the respect that is so highly intertwined with it. Brothers in arms […]

Sadly,some will never understand “All gave some; some gave all”

by Skip May 29, 2017

Without the knowledge, there is no respect for Memorial Day I’ve been putting up these kinds of videos for years – kids, young adults, that known little to nothing of our country’s history or of American Exceptionalism.  Sure, we have had wars in our past – we are a country born of war.  You’d think […]

NOW NH Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley has a conscience that NH taxpayers are also FEDERAL taxpayers?

by Skip April 16, 2017

From WMUR’s CLOSEUP: “It’s still a $70 billion cost,” said Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, referring to the national cost of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. “New Hampshire taxpayers are federal taxpayers, and I think we need to respect that.” Respect?  Well, my, my – how CONVENIENT, eh?  When it came to passing Medicaid Expansion the first […]

Not even the retail politics here in NH could dig this up – seems Hillary IS vile to the little people

by Skip October 1, 2015

‘I can’t be responsible for every under-capitalized small business in America’!” — Tony Snow reporting on Hillary’s health care plan. We expect to meet our candidates multiple times, not just to hear them but to vet them.  We expect them to be here in good weather and bad, in the bigger NH cities and the […]

I don’t get no respect

by Susan Olsen February 9, 2015

I wrote to all the NH Senators this morning asking they support SB 116 – “Constitutional Carry”.  I got some “I will support the bill”, I got some canned “Thank you for contacting my office”. But the response I got from District 7 Senator Andrew Hosmer was a first:

GrokBite – Once again, on military issues, Obama is AWOL

by Skip August 18, 2014

Respect vs golf, paying respect or playing golf.  Honoring a slain US Military warrior or addressing a little white ball – which should I choose? Could also have been the Blogline of the Day: While a Military Daughter Buries Her 2-Star General Daddy, the Commander-in-Least is Nowhere to Be Found Reminder: When two-star Major General Harold Greene, the […]

D-Day Rememberance: “It’s just that he makes it so hard to do so.”

by Skip June 6, 2014

From the Corner: Brix, France — Some of the veterans attending the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings here in France have fascinating stories.  Take George Ciampa, the most vibrant and spry 89-year-old I have ever met. In 1944, he landed in Normandy as a soldier assigned to the 84th Graves Registration Unit. “I spent the […]

And THIS is the nub of the problem caused by our Legislators – on BOTH sides of the aisle

by Skip January 21, 2014

I have said this over and over and over again – and the problem is brought upon by legislators on both side of the aisle – the lack of respect for our Constitutions and the principles behind why we have government.  Susan posted Ian Underwood’s testimony on NH HB 1589 – a law that would […]

New Hampshire House Democrat Respect & Civility Alert!

by Steve MacDonald January 3, 2013

New Hampshire Democrats ran on respect and civility.  And we knew it for the fraud it was but people still fell for it. Part and parcel to the fraud was Speaker Norelli claiming to shake up the seating arrangements in the House to help build respect and civility,  bi-partisanship, working together…I figured it was so […]

Proud of President Obama

by Don October 4, 2011

I would have been prouder still of President Obama if he didn’t use our soldiers as political pawns. Because the Democrat controlled Senate has refused to pass a budget for more than two years, government funding is being authorized by continuing resolutions. When Republicans tried to rein in President Obama’s irresponsible spending demands, President Obama threatened a government shutdown and the withholding of salary, disability and death benefits, and other payments to our soldiers, even those in combat with dependent families.
I guess soldiers shouldn’t feel singled out since President Obama also threatened to have social security payments withheld. Apparently payments for foreign aid, bureaucrats, subsidies, bailouts, pork barrel spending, and President Obama’s travel, etc., are all higher priority to President Obama than paying our soldiers and seniors.
