Happy Birthday!

Today is my daughter’s 10th Birthday.  She shares the day with Roger Clemons, Louis Armstrong, The Queen Mother Elizabeth, Anti-Semite Helen Thomas, Redskins Running Back John Riggins, Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman… …and someone else of note—I can’t seem to remember who though.

CLEAR gets KO’d For Now

With bi-partisan support the Senate has blocked a new energy tax passed by the House that would have hit the middle class and working families right in their shrinking wallets.  The CLEAR act, a job killing tax raising attempt by House democrats beholden to radical environmentalists, would have driven energy industry jobs out of America …

Why Not Bob Giuda?

As one of the leaders of the NHRCV I played a part along with our tireless leader Kevin McHugh when our membership voted to endorse Jennifer Horn late last year.  We here at the Grok have endorsed Jennifer and yes I had a hand in that as well.  And since then a few libertarians–Bob Giuda’s …

NHDP Cries Hypocrite!

The New Hampshire democrat party–in a typical game of misdirection–is all lathered up about some tenuous connections between Senator Gregg–leaving the Senate, John Sununu–no longer in the Senate, and Kelly Ayotte–not even in the Senate, accepting contributions from two billionaires from Texas who have been charged with securities fraud. The operative word is "charged" not convicted, but …

Gregg Goes For Kagen

Rumor has it the Senator from New Hampshire that is not a woman (by birth) plans to vote to confirm the activist train wreck Elena Kagen. That’s right, Judd Gregg has been outed as for Kagen.  But before he casts his vote, we should let him know how we feel about that.  I already have. …

Green Eggs And H-amnesty

The White house is looking for a way to deem amnesty.  Can you imagine what possible reason they might have to do that?  Think about it.  Seventy percent of Americans, at least 70%, object to amnesty.  They don’t want it.  Seventy percent or more.  So the only possible reason to do it, to pass some …
