GrokBITE: Senate Republican Majority PAC –
Taking A Bite Out Of NH For Boutin!

by Mike August 17, 2014

As Kimberly Notes below**, the Senate Republican Majority PAC has made a complete ass of itself by spending about $5,000 on a multicolor flyer extolling the virtues of State Senator David Boutin. In so doing, they display the same lack of principles and self-control as the clown they are defending. I’m thinking that the icon […]

Notable Quote – Ol Remus

by Susan Olsen May 6, 2014

“The Forgotten Man, now as  then, is a beast to be burdened, something to  be bargained for, not  with.  In education and employment he’s commanded by the corrupt to stand aside for  the incompetent, the  improvident and perpetually needful, even  the criminal illegal. He’s embezzled by default and slandered in absentia. He’s the uncaring, unfeeling malignancy […]

by Ed Naile April 1, 2014

The media pundits have declared ObamaDemocratCare “unrepealable” because it reached the phony milestone of trapping a couple million registrants who were kicked off real health insurance by ObamaDemocratCare.

NH Congressman Charlie Bass was the most notorious modern Main Street Republican with a New Hampshire pedigree.   A group that has a very liberal agenda and ties to Democrat money (and Soros money) going all the way back to 2002.  So you won’t be surprised to hear that this trend has not only continued, it […]
