Who Wants Partial Birth Abortion?

The New Hampshire House voted to ban partial birth abortion today (HB 1679).  For those unfamiliar, Partial birth abortion is exactly what the term infers.  The baby is partially born before its abortionist-induced termination.  What this actually is, is abortion at birth, and if it was done without consent, even liberals would call it murder.  …

Emerson’s Boo-Hoo Towel Bill Goes Down in Flames

Consider it settled.  Debating at the grown-ups table, at least for the remainder of the 2012 session of the New Hampshire House, will not be misconstrued as “bullying.”  HB 1533, an Act to turn heated State House debate you disagree with into a crime punishable with up to a $2500.00 fine, was killed 224-78.

RINO OF THE WEEK REPORT

It has often been said that ones’ environment and geography shapes and affects the personal paradigm. Copeland, a retiree from one of the most highly regulated, anti-second amendment jurisdictions in the nation (New York) is a crystal clear example of that notion…

How Did Your NH House Republican Rank In 2011?

I’ve culled my reps from the list (Hills 19) below. I’ve also generated a list of the Republican bottom feeders for 2011. These are what we would call RINOs, moderate democrats who could never survive the bullying from the left, or might never get elected if they admitted that they have little or no interest in supporting the Republican party platform.

Spoiled Brat Unions Don’t Want Parity – Again.

The measure states–if I understand it correctly–that if the union contract expires and has not been renewed, and no new contract is yet negotiated, those employees become at-will workers who can be treated (wait for it) like everyone else.
