by Tom June 20, 2014

There’s a big shindig coming up at the Tuscan Kitchen in Salem this Monday.

It’s looking like the kick-off for the “Charge of the RINO Brigade” (or “RINOs Gone Wild @#!“) in […]

Jim Rubens should actually be relieved: “State Rep. Ladd moves from Rubens to Brown camp”

by Skip June 17, 2014

Why?  When I circulated this around to the other Groksters, Steve immediately replied: “Guy who barely voted with Republicans 6 out of 10 times supports Scott Brown who voted with Democrats 6 out of 10 times.”  Indeed!   NH Rep.

The Republican Party right now acts like a union. You go in as a youngster, you spend enough time there you eventually become a leader. If you say anything bad about the party you’re a scab.

Each political party has a platform. New Hampshire Democrats have theirs and New Hampshire Republicans have theirs. These platforms are unsigned contracts between […]
