No, Rep. Rosemarie Rung, Your Party Does NOT Support Border Security

This: When Rung says “border security” she does not mean border security in the sense the vast majority of Americans understand the phrase. More specifically, she does not mean measures that would decrease illegal immigration. To understand what Democrats really mean when they use these phrases like “border security,” one must understand that Democrats support …

Senator Jeannie and the New Hampshire Democrats’ Diversity Scam

During the recent midterm elections, the Democrats kept telling us how important it was to have a more “diverse” legislature. Which meant voting against the GOP because they were old and white and, probably worst of all, men. NHPR fairly recently ran a victory lap -er, I mean an article- about how much more “diverse” …

Tomorrow a Women’s March is taking place in Concord: There is also a Women’s March taking place in DC and other cities tomorrow.

The Silence of the Sununu

This: What NHPR means by “Roll Back Voter Residency Restrictions” is repealing House Bill 1264 and once again allowing out-of-State college students to vote in New Hampshire elections while remaining residents of their home States. In other words, these college students will once again have a special, privileged status under the law, under which they …

The Vote That Really Mattered Last Week (Hint It Wasn’t The Gun Ban)

O.K. Misleading title. “Mattered” in the sense that the vote is predictive of how effective an opposition the minority GOP in the New Hampshire House can be. As a threshold matter, I know the House Rules are not subject to a veto, which I note to avoid the comment “he doesn’t even know House Rules …

Something Steve’s Post on the Florida Supreme Court’s Recent Education Funding Decision Made Me Think Of …

Steve MacDonald recently posted Florida Court Invokes Separation of Powers in Refusal To Play ‘Adequacy’ Game in Public Education on Granite Grok. You should read it. You should also read the decision. As a parenthetical note, the Florida constitution -before the amendment in issue in the decision- actually contained the word “adequate”: Prior to 1998, article …

A Liddle Phony Sacrifice

This from Liddle Chris Pappas: Which the local press immediately heralded: But it’s really not much of a sacrifice when you view it in the context of Liddle Chris’ own financial disclosure, which can be found HERE. Liddle Chris is a multi-millionaire, much of it inherited from his family. While he does list offsetting liabilities, …

No, They Are Not Your Friends

This regarding what was described as a “suspicious package” found at the headquarters of the New Hampshire Democrats a few weeks ago: I agree with everything except the wishful thinking that Ray Buckley Democrats are “friends” of the GOP. The Ray Buckley Democrats have called themselves “the resistance” since the 2016 election, which means they …
