Even in a faux “marketplace”, people can still vote with their dollars

by Skip August 10, 2017

Given that I just came home from the Americans For Prosperity NH’s (AFP) Tax Reform meeting at Pittman’s Freight Room in Laconia, this is appropriate.  I’ve said for years now that a free marketplace is one where people make decisions that benefit their own self-interest; if something does not add value to their lives, they […]

Thumbnail image for Cell Phone Ban Nothing More Than An Arbitrary Tax – New Evidence Confirms

Let’s assume for a moment that the members of the NH Legislature that voted for HB 1360 (Restricting the use of cell phones in motor vehicles) are almost, but not quite as smart as they think they are.

They want us to die.  Survivors will be treated as less than animals.  Allah requires the faithful to cleanse the world to create the global Ummah.  And it is Ok to lie, cheat, break vows, whatever is required. (Just like Democrats.) […]

I think this goes in the “Let’s make up a problem to solve” file. The New Hampshire House…for clarity that means Democrats, just passed a tax on paint. Retailers will be required by law to assess this tax to be determined by the Paint-tax-Tsar on every container of interior or exterior paint that is 5 […]

Nothing says “Democrats are the smartest people in the room” like this… “As a result of the ACA, between 6 million and 7 million fewer people will have employment-based insurance coverage each year from 2016 through 2024 than would be the case in the absence of the ACA.” Would it be racist to claim this […]

Data Point: Obama Plan – taxes going up for two million additional “victims”

by Skip September 27, 2012

After all, Democrats view everyone (almost) as a victim, right? And horrors – it is all on the Dems that have created this new victim gaggle!  And they state that 30 million folks will NOT be covered (er, wasn’t that the whole point of this boondoggle?) and 6 million (2 million more than planned – […]

Is John Lynch In Trouble With Democrats?

by Steve MacDonald May 22, 2011

The progressive socialists who pull the big red levers at party headquarters invest a good deal of political capitol on bashing big business and the men and women who run them so how do they reconcile their figurehead democrat pimping the potential for 1500 new manufacturing jobs in the state, created by some evil, free market, fortune 100 company?

Right To Work Override

by Steve MacDonald May 20, 2011

If Exxon Mobile demanded $50.00 per month from all its employees, every month, to pay for benefits and it’s political action agenda, the left would shit kittens, protest, and then engage in well funded, partisan series of lawsuits until the company was forbidden from using that money for political activity.

New Hampshire Got Jobs!?

by Steve MacDonald May 19, 2011

How about some jobs? New Hampshire is reporting an April unemployment rate of 4.9%. … This is unlike last year when the initial “improvement” we saw was actually the result of workforce decline–people had stopped looking or receiving benefits and dropped out of the equation.

The Missiles of Venezuela

by Steve MacDonald May 17, 2011

Can the guy who accepts books from the same dictator who is prepared to represent a significant risk to American interests in the hemisphere–including interests in America, step up and take them out before they are operational?

A Funding “Solution” For Democrats Concerned about Budget Cuts

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2011

Remember all that stuff we didn’t have to have in the New Hampshire budget before 2006 when the democrats started piling it up into what has become our Billion dollar budget deficit? I don’t either. I’m not even sure what they spent it on which is why I am convinced I can do without it. All this caterwauling is clearly just cover for keeping the bloated bureaucracy alive so they can milk it for union campaign contributions.
