Blogline of the Day – if you’ve got it, they’ll spend it

Government expenditures will expand to exceed revenues. A story of pot when the taxes paid for pleasure end up enlarging Government.  Which, here in NH, has been the reason why the Democrats have pushed for a casino (or two).  Not for the sake of letting a corporation separate one’s money from one’s wallet – it …

Narrative: Tax Breaks Cost Schools Kajillions of Dollars

One of the things the Left is better at than the Right is narrative. This is not because they are smarter or more clever. It’s much simpler than that. The Left lies. They prevaricate. Storytelling is easier when the truth is no barrier. And while real-life stories ripped from the headlines sound more plausible, when …

Keene State College Enrollment Decline Repackaged as ‘Right-Sizing’

Keene State College continues to have enrollment issues. But on a positive note, they’ve made that problem (sort of, kind of) go away by renaming it. The perennial decrease has been relabeled. The ten percent of staff the college had to buy out to avoid firing them outright can rest easy knowing they were ‘Right-sized’ out …

Are New Hampshire Democrats Backing Away From Promised Tax Hikes?

All year long New Hampshire Democrats have been whining about how cutting New Hampshire’s business taxes was a hand out to the rich. Corporate bailouts. The standard socialist-Democrat class warfare rhetoric. Back in the real world, these tax cuts have produced record job growth, wage growth, and record labor force participation. Regular folk are working and earning …

It isn’t just about the marijuana tax revenue Democrats desire…

As Steve posted, the reason why the Democrats decided to go all out on legalizing marijuana was not that they treasure Liberty (they don’t) but that they want YOUR money in their Treasury.  It’s one of the reasons I’m against legalization and against casinos here in NH: both do nothing more than act as an …

Quick Thought on Steve’s post: One of Life’s Certainties – New Hampshire Democrats Raise Taxes

Here. It’s what Democrats do.  Let me remind you of what they did before: they created an $800 million hole in the NH State budget.  They spent everything they could – and then more.  You see, Democrats are: They believe in Government directed EVERYTHING – every aspect of our lives.  That takes a lot of …

One of Life’s Certainties – New Hampshire Democrats Raise Taxes

As Government gets bigger and more inefficient (corrupt), it needs to feed. The ‘food’ is your hard earned dollars, and the delivery method is taxation (fees, charges, etc.). Anyone who recalls the last time Democrats “ran things” around here they deliberately overestimated revenues and then spent them to grow government. When the estimates fell short, …
