No 3% Solution In Hillsborough

When it becomes evident that they have exceeded our mandate or entered into agreements which have or will become fiscally untenable, the officials charged with representing the taxpayers interest must endeavor to introduce savings and efficiencies that limit the fiscal impact of those tasks before they overcome the ability of reasonable men and women to sustain them.

Bomb-Bomb-Bomb…Bomb-Bomb IRAN

“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”

Obama Micro-Historian

Courtesy of Politico via NH Watchdog-apparently Mr. Obama is now blaming people for things that never happened in the past that he never even suggested.  In an interview with Politico, the president said: “I think it’s fair to say, if six months ago, before this spill had happened, I had gone up to Congress and …

The RINO Bonnie Newman

She (Bonnie Newman) supports John Lynch which means she stands for abortion, debt, deficits, bonding, taxes without hearings, gay marriage, broad based shadow taxes, left wing special interests, she’s against parent’s rights, won’t defend free speech, encourages irresponsible revenue projections to hide out of control spending, and backs the partisan hypocrisy on influence from out of state money.
