by Skip October 2, 2016

The Podcast is here.  Let’s start off with what would be a Blogline of the Day: QUESTION ASKED: As social media thrives, why is Twitter falling behind?

  I think the Department of labor needs to investigate the hiring and promotion practices at the Huffington Post.  There is an obvious ageist, sexist bias in force here. As for “diversity,” I do see BOTH blueberries and strawberries.

‘Tis alright – I’ll find another platform

by Skip March 21, 2016

But I LIKED Tweetdeck: TWITTER IS SHUTTING DOWN TWEETDECK FOR WINDOWS: Funny, when I joined Twitter in December of 2008, Tweetdeck was Twitter for me. Built around multiple columns, with one for people in my Twitter Stream, another people responding to me, and another direct messages, Tweetdeck allowed me to have real time conversations, instead of […]

With the introduction of the Twitter thought police, assuming that is allowed to continue, it wont be long before they kick me out.  But that’s not a big deal. I am not a heavy Twitter user.

How DUMB are NH Democrats when it comes to SB 116?

by Kimberly Morin February 13, 2015

There are two types of gun control extremists – those who willfully LIE about facts and statistics and those who are simply dumber than a box of rocks.  In New Hampshire we have both varieties. I realize these people have no control over their willful ignorance but it’s actually embarrassing.
