Thumbnail image for GrokTALK! – Taxpayers On The Hook Again?

Taxpayers might be on the hook again as a local utility looks to divest itself of some property (with the legislatures help). Then there’s an election law bill that may make the definition of domicile worse (if you can imagine that). And we take a few shots at UNH because we are talking about domicile. […]

Watch this then go figure out a) how much the State University system is wasting while they cry about public support and tuition rate, and b) how much of that $11 million in additional dollars the State Senate just added to the UNH budget could go to this kind of nonsense.

by Skip March 3, 2015

From his “Thoughts on a Sunday“: The totalitarians-in-training at Clemson University are calling for stripping everyone on campus of their First Amendment rights, making sure no one can voice opposing viewpoints they may find offensive, or worse, true.

Thumbnail image for UNH Pres Wants Another 100 Mil or Else

The President of UNH is on a mission.  His goal is to not raise in-state tuition.  In a free market you’d talk to suppliers, look at internal operations, streamline your offerings, modify compensation, or optimize productivity.  You’d get rid of what doesn’t work and focus on what does work. I’m not sure UNH knows how […]

There was an article in one of the broadsheets this week that observed: A majority of NH College students leave the state after graduation.

Thumbnail image for Let’s be Honest About Who Is Suppressing Votes in New Hampshire

The majority of vote suppression in New Hampshire is caused by Democrats harboring and/or encouraging non-residents to vote here instead of where they actually live, thereby suppressing the electoral voice of actual residents whose votes are erased as a result.  The Democrat’s suppression of your votes is wide-spread, and their commitment to suppressing your will […]

Yesterday, while speaking with Ed Naile on GrokTALK!, I brought up the Democrats claims that we are suppressing votes.  That objecting to out-of-state Democrat operatives or out-of-state-rate-tuition-paying college students voting in New Hampshire is a form of vote suppression.   These are people with multiple “domiciles,” a duplicitous “presence,” in multiple states.  (Many of them are […]

New Hampshire Democrats cried like lost children when the O’Brein legislature cut some of the public funding to UNH, as did UNH (naturally),  so one of their first priorities for teary-eyed Democrats when they took back the House was to waste 25 million dollars of our money by giving it back to UNH. The emotional […]

AFP-NH Director Greg Moore fills the “Another View” slot in today’s Union leader with the question, “If you were running a business, how much would you pay your employees not to show up for work?” He then proceeds to ask, how, in this economic environment, the same University system that cannot control costs, that begs for more and more taxpayer bailouts, […]

NH Listens? No They Don’t. They Tell!

NH Listens is running around the state training “facilitators” to advance a decidedly left wing agenda.  And why not?  The ‘interim’ directer of the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire–which runs NH Listens–is not only a well connected left winger, he doesn’t even live in the granite State.

Boston.com has an article today observing that pro-obama turnout in New Hampshire’s college towns is less than it was in 2008.  There is very intentional mention of concerns (from folks like myself I assume) about out of state students being used to tip the election; but how no one could ever know how they’d vote, […]
