The New Hampshire GOP Shows, Yet Again, That It Is The Stupid Party

This: Let’s be real. The Democrats’ primary objective is NOT regulating inaugural committees. It is embarrassing Sununu. The Democrats had zero interest in “inaugural slush funds,” “self-dealing” blah, blah, blah when Maggie or Lynchie or Jeannie were doing the slushing: Since Hassan did not have to file reports disclosing her inaugural activity, there are no …

Will Gov Chris Sununu veto SB241?

Our standard of measure (an engineering term that Gov. Sununu should know well) here at GraniteGrok includes the NH Constitution.  SB241 is yet another attempt to implement a 19th-century technology, a choo-choo train, for the benefit of a very few at the expense of very many. And of course, they are at it again with a …

That’s the game-changing proposal that New Hampshire Governor …

The Red Pen Governor

The liberty and freedom we’ve enjoyed in New Hampshire is under direct attack.  And it’s the worst it has ever been. Fresh off their November election wins, Democrats fired up their campaign to restrict rights and grow government.  And, unfortunately, they control the House, Senate and Executive Council.   But fortunately, we still have a Republican governor …

Off-Shore Wind Boondoggles- NH Says Deal Me In

New Hampshire has expressed an interest in “milking” the sacred cow of offshore wind. To that end Governor Sununu recently asked the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to establish an intergovernmental offshore renewable energy task force for New Hampshire.

Something Steve’s Post on the Florida Supreme Court’s Recent Education Funding Decision Made Me Think Of …

Steve MacDonald recently posted Florida Court Invokes Separation of Powers in Refusal To Play ‘Adequacy’ Game in Public Education on Granite Grok. You should read it. You should also read the decision. As a parenthetical note, the Florida constitution -before the amendment in issue in the decision- actually contained the word “adequate”: Prior to 1998, article …
