Piss Be Upon Him

I assume Israel bashing and pissing on Jesus are still democrat approved artistic pursuits–for which I deserve a taxpayer funded government grant.  But will Pelosi also cover my health insurance costs?  What if I don’t want to be tied to my job and instead choose to become an artist who travels the country making caricatures of Mohammed (Peace Be …

One Thought In Passing

Are the people running the unions stupid?  Not the rank and file, but the leadership.  These people are selling salt as flour to the due payers while pushing the cities and states into a corner.  What do I mean?  Look at the pension problem.  In New Jersey Chris Cristie has to fight tooth and nail …

It’s A Trap

  The idea of the variable rooms and meals tax for towns is a trap set by the democrat majority legislature.  I mentioned it here but let me reiterate how it works for those who may not have noticed or guessed for themselves. Democrat run State government, in its quest for a broad based tax, spends …

Is It Getting Colder?

  Something you won’t find in your daily broadsheet, or on any of the more fashionable cable news channels, is a paper presented by a prominent geologist at the 4th international conference on Climate Change in Chicago.  In it Dr. Don Easterbrook warns of us imminent global cooling. (oh boy) I’ll see your warming, and raise …

Right To Ignorance

  The passage of the New and Improved New Hampshire Right To Know Law (as yet unsigned by Governor Lynch) redefines "public body" in a way that makes it more difficult for taxpayer to observe the inner workings of their government. An individual executive or administrative officer of a political subdivision shall not constitute a …

Does Lynch Have A Primary Fight In 2010?

Rumor has it that John Lynch could have a primary challenger named Tim Robertson (D-Keene). Robertson has been kicking around the NH House for years warming a seat over at the Criminal Justice and Public Safety commission where his primary contribution has been making friends in the party and sponsoring bills that are inexpedient to legislate.  Robertson’s …

Wheel Of Misfortune

I’ve got mixed emotions about the variable rooms and meals tax (R&M).  On one hand it is the microcosm of federalism.  Every town would be the master of its own demise.  Durham would be like New York State, Keene might be like Michigan.  On the other, starting at 9% is way too high to begin …

Why Liberals Really Hate Arizona

The left’s spleen venting on Arizona’s new law regarding illegal immigration makes perfect sense. Arizona, a sovereign state of the union, has for years (decades) left most of the problems associated with a porous border in the hands of the federal government.  Some of those problems included drug trafficking, people trafficking, and other criminal activates. From …
