I realize most of the (Merrimack) town delegation supports right to work but as we approach the override vote I wanted to impart these remarks. If any business but a union demanded $50.00 every month from every employee, for benefits and used some of that money to finance its mostly one-party political action funding, there would be hell to pay. No one of any political party would support that. Now imagine if they had to do it or they could not work there?
The progressive socialists who pull the big red levers at party headquarters invest a good deal of political capitol on bashing big business and the men and women who run them so how do they reconcile their figurehead democrat pimping the potential for 1500 new manufacturing jobs in the state, created by some evil, free market, fortune 100 company?
How about some jobs? New Hampshire is reporting an April unemployment rate of 4.9%. … This is unlike last year when the initial “improvement” we saw was actually the result of workforce decline–people had stopped looking or receiving benefits and dropped out of the equation.
Inspiration comes in strange places. Dots connect, ideas coalesce, thoughts combine. These kinds of events are most common for me in circumstances where it is almost impossible to write them down. I often get revelations driving and have to pull over to write them down. But the other morning it was in the shower.
This Union Leader Editorial in today’s paper does exactly what we should all be doing. Pointing out the obvious hypocrisy of democrats who ignore actions by their Democrat governor. It used to be that the “essential” level of funding for state health and social services was whatever the commissioner of Health and Human Services said …
Tim Gill won’t be happy. He and Political Outgiving have been pouring money into Maryland and the pockets of its governor, Martin O’Malley, O’Malley was one of Tim Gill’s special guests at last years secret gathering along with our own governor John Lynch. The goal was, as it was in New Hampshire, to buy up local politicians at the state house level and ensure the governor of finanaical support to pass same sex marriage.
The headline reads Dropout rates below 1%. Eight paragraphs into the love fest we find out what (pat on the back) I was just complaining about a few weeks ago.
I’m wondering where New Hampshire’s governor was between the 3rd and 6th of March 2011? Was he somewhere in New Hampshire, or off on other business? Maybe dropping off a Hallmark card of thanks? The donors from Political Outgiving ponied up about 10% of the Lynch campaign haul for 2010. Sometimes an email or a phone call just isn’t enough.
So is John Lynch’s ‘recovery’ built on a foundation of one time money from Washington to expand the role of government? That would be a yes. The Norelli/Larsen/Lynch combine took the company credit card, bought a bunch of goods and services from themselves in the form of more government, and are now left with more mouths to feed and a huge recurring annual bill for which there is no revenue.
Governor Lynch is all about his success at reducing Drop Out rates in New Hampshire. (The number of high school age kids who leave school without graduation or achieving a recognized equivalent.) He even has a goal. New Hampshire will have a zero percent drop out rate by 2012. And based on the available data, I think he will succeed, but not in reducing actual “drop outs” to zero.
