Civilian Disarmament bills: Those that would limit your Rights because EMOTION and SAFETY

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety -Benjamin Franklin Consider this post, as a good example of how the Left despises your Right to keep and bear arms and what and how they will frame their arguments in order to legislative do to make …

Civilian Disarmament bills: Progressives don’t care about results, only intent

HB101 and HB564 have to do with gun restrictions in school zones (or as I call these kinds of bills the Second Amendment’s death by a thousand cuts). NH Rep Sharon Nordgren’s testimony was reading a letter from a bunch of Progressives (and remember, Progressives is just a focus group redo of “Socialists”). This gave …

Civilian Disarmament bills – The Groksters respond

And respond with guns blazing (heh!).  This past Wednesday the Education Committee heard testimony from LOTS of people on: HB101 having to do “This bill allows a school district, school administrative unit, or chartered public school to adopt and enforce a policy regulating firearms, firearms components, ammunition, firearms supplies, or knives within its jurisdiction” HB564 …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 6

Why, Skip, is GraniteGrok (especially you) spending so much time on education lately?  Is there nothing better to be talking about?  The short answer, the plain answer, is no.  It IS one of our culture’s “High Ramparts” that the Left decided to target and they were willing to spend decades in influencing, capturing, taking over, …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 5

And yes, I put NH Commissioner of Education Frank Edelblut into a prickly position on this but hey, GraniteGrok is NH’s leading and most influential political blogsite – of COURSE this was going to come up. Andru Volinsky – no interview about education should take place without a mention that Andru Alinsky Volinsky was responsible …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 4

The next “micro-topic” that Frenk Edelblut and I discussed is one of my most favorite parts of the NH Constitution: Article 28-A in combination with the incorrect idea that education in NH is all about local control by one’s School Board.  Thus, we talk about unfunded mandates, the “Statification” of local control and the “Federalization” …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 3

Is Education meant to educate a Citizen of our State and Republic?  Or is the major thrust of Education simply to prepare someone to enter the workforce in some capacity?  It is a question, as NH is wrestling with Town Meetings and First/Second Deliberative Sessions (the latter if you are in an SB2 style town), …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 2

With Part 2, I broach the subject that comes up here and again at GraniteGrok: “Curriculum and political bias in the classroom”.  Given that in Part 1 we discussed the appeal process, I was curious as to how often this happens here in NH: It does happen – the teacher in Gilford showing her class …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 1

This afternoon I sat down with Frank Edelblut, the current NH Commissioner of Education, for an hour long interview.  Having video’d him several times in the past along with his announcement of the NH Dept of Ed’s Learning Everywhere, I thought it was time to sit down and have a conversation about the state of …
