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.

Chilling

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 …

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.

New Hampshire Needs To Go Into Rehab

“…state governments learn to rely to much on federal handouts as well. New Hampshire democrats just “balanced” the state budget with more debt and millions in federal money that’s not even there. So now they’ll have to get someone to put it back or their budget will not be “in balance,” like some crack whore begging for another hit.”

Redress of Grievances

Skip wrote a post here rearding Obama’s ‘Kick Ass’ moment.  As I began typing my ‘comment’ it began to grow into something to long for the format.  So here it is. I’d sum it up (Obama’s attitude problem as Skip presents it) as an inversion of the first amendment right to redress of grievances.  Obama feels …
