Michelle: “Let’s Move” USPS: “here’s your stamp!” President: “those sports are DANGEROUS!”

by Skip October 10, 2013

Just like Grokster Steve’s post on the Nashua Elementary School’s continuing the sissification of American (“ooh, someone might get hurt!!!”), we see someone else saying “TOO MUCH RISK – you can’t do that!”.

Did Stephen LaBonte of the NH AG’s office ” mislead viewers” of his Josh Youssef ruling to think it actually wasn’t gibberish?

by Skip August 22, 2013

Sheesh, what maroons (Er, that would be BOTH Ed Mosca and Stephen LaBonte)!  A fake internet site during a campaign – what a NOVEL CONCEPT to think of.  I…I…don’t think anyone has tried that during a campaign before!  Shhh….don’t let ANYONE outside of NH get ahold of this idea, because, well, people might think….well, LOOK!
