Obama Home Credit Fail

An Envelope Full of Debt   [Stephen Spruiell] Things are looking worse on the housing front, with a severe drop-off in existing home sales following the expiration of the home-buyer tax credit. It’s hard to overstate how stupid this policy was. The government marketed it as a measure to boost residential real-estate prices by providing new …

Chicago On The Merrimack

The democrat party line on BP is to close ranks and paint Republicans as protecting big oil.  This is necessary to distract America from Obama’s incompetence and the democrat’s cozy relationship with the British energy company.  Both Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes got the memo—they are on board—using tragedy for personal and political profit as …

Just Borrow Them From Washington DC

The rhetorical skirmishes over the replacement of retiring Supreme Court Justice John Broderick have produced some interesting contrasts. We are told by those wishing for prompt action that failing to appoint judges could have an adverse affect on the peoples rights which I have to admit makes sense, except when you consider that there are four superior court and nine district court vacancies (as reported in the Union Leader) languishing somewhere in the appointment/replacement process.

Carol Stands Up For…?

Carol Shea Porter has been accused of using the oil spill and related disasters as a way to get campaign contributions.    In response her campaign manager, Angela Ruslander, said this in her defense. “Carol Shea-Porter is standing up to BP and other big corporations who are irresponsibly hurting our environment and our economy.”    Wait it gets better.  …

Killing Prosperity

The total incompetence in Washington-unless of course they are in fact a super villain like Moriarty hell bent on the economic destruction of the country–is fully on display.  We have people taking profits in 2010 without hiring, giving the impression of a recovery when in fact they are simply storing their nuts for the long …

Elect Equality

Ray has apparently been asking the local democrat population to cast their votes for Paul and Carol and I say knock yourself out, as long as you are OK with taking more out of state money from major unions that use intimidation to stifle free speech (wow that sounds familiar), and beat up innocnet black men who disagree with them. I think that makes the SEIU a bunch of hate mongering racists, but I’ll have to check my Race Pimps and Grievance-Mongers to American English Dictionary (Fifth Column….I mean edition) to be certain.

Why The Stimulus Had To Fail

It’s simple economics.  Government money comes from taxpayers.  The more government spends the more it relies on taxpayers to pay for its spending.  The less money taxpayers have the smaller the economy will be the fewer jobs there are, which means less income, less taxes, more debt.  The stimulus, the huge budget bills, the massive …

Show Me The Money

The New Hampshire Democrat party is excited about all the female candidates they are fielding. Ray Buckley would like you to think that this is some kind of equal opportunity thing, or that he thinks his party gets an electoral advantage of some kind but it’s really all about money.


Anyone who doubts Kathy "Lawsuit" Sullivan intentions while crafting a speech intimidation amendment with Maggie ‘The Red’ Hassan will find these words suitably chilling.   The reason the Manchester School board gave Grace Sullivan (Kathy’s sister) a $253,000.00 severance and her old job back? Democratic Party Chairman Kathy Sullivan, alleges that there were grounds to sue because Republican …
