NH gives Republicans supermajorities for Dem. governor
New Hampshire returned to its red roots last night for the most part. Both of our representative seats returned to the R column with Frank Guinta and Charlie Bass, and we elected Kelly Ayotte as our newest Senator. The Bass race was close with Charlie winning 49% – 47%. Guinta beat up on Shea-Porter 55% – 41%. And of course the pummeling Kelly Ayotte put | Read More »
Sarah Palin endorses Kelly Ayotte in NH.
From today’s Concord Monitor. This is good. This is good indeed. New Hampshire Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte was endorsed by Sarah Palin last night. “It’s my honor to endorse a Granite State ‘mama grizzly’ who has broken barriers, fought off and locked up criminals, and battled all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to protect the rights of New Hampshire parents – and won!” | Read More »
Now we know Stupak’s price.
Code Red is reporting that Bart Stupak was awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars just two days before the vote. The money went into a couple of airports in his district that serve even fewer people than John Murtha International. No one who thinks abortion is the taking of an innocent human life could ever sell that position. It is ingrained in who you are. | Read More »

Kelly Ayotte comes out on healh care reform
I must admit, I have some reservations about Kelly Ayotte. With that being said, her op-ed in today’s Manchester Union Leader is fantastic. Here is the link. Among the highlights: Tort reform: We should start with medical malpractice reform to reduce frivolous lawsuits. In underserved areas, the threat of these lawsuits has forced doctors out of practice, and this is especially true for obstetricians. This | Read More »
Jennifer Horn (R NH-02 CAN) gets it
In an essay in today’s Union Leader, Republican candidate Jennifer Horn has a great piece. She is running for the seat to be vacated by Paul Hodes (D), who is running for Judd Gregg’s Senate seat. To recap some of her points: While the Democratic leadership in Congress is responsible for the debacle we face today, Republicans of past majorities must also take responsibility for | Read More »
Interesting instructions for teachers as Obama addresses students
The president is going to be addressing all school children on September 8th. Usually, I would think this opportunity for our children to learn a little about civics and open a discussion would be a good thing. Alas, this is the Obama administration we are talking about. Not satisfied with simply addressing the student population, they have issued an outline to the teachers on how | Read More »
NH Judge orders homeschooled Christain girl into public school.
Crossposted from The Fallen World. The Alliance Defense Fund has reported that Judge Lucinda V. Sadler has ordered a 10 year old girl into public school. The order can be found here. One would think the underlying reason is of course that the mother is not providing a proper education causing the child to fall behind other children in her age group. Apparently that is | Read More »
Rep. Carol Shea-Porter to hold “town halls”…in federal buildings.
You can’t make this stuff up. Our representative in the first CD of New Hampshire is going to hold two “town hall” meetings this Saturday. In the Federal Buildings in Manchester and Portsmouth. Talk about keeping up appearances and controlling access. The Manchester event starts at 11:00 – 12:00, doors open at 10:00. If you do manage to get in past the SEIU wave sure | Read More »
NH blogger gets secret service attention
In a recent story on the Nashua Telegraph website, one of the commenters had the audacity to write the following: “I hope NH is better than letting this guy off the hook. Let Obama know what ‘Live Free or Die’ means (hint: it isn’t reckless TAXING and SPENDING). Otherwise, Portsmouth will just be another glorified photo-op for the Socialist-in-Chief,” Wanna know what it got him? | Read More »
Health care town hall cowardice in NH
Our junior senator and former governess Jeanne Shaheen has decided that instead of facing her constituents, she is going to hold a “telephone town hall” meeting. So, instead of hearing from her constituents directly, we will be treated to planted softballs and the claim that she heard from the people. Here are the instructions if you want your senator to hear your voice; contact Shaheen’s | Read More »
The sad state of the church in America.
Corssposted from The Fallen World. I ran across this newsweek article and after some head shaking, I broken heartedly have to agree with the author. Although I am not a Catholic (I am a non denominational Christian), I have seen this trend throughout evangelical churches as well. We have opted for the feel-good social justice approach while ignoring the root principles of Christianity. Namely that | Read More »
IRS stifling pro-life speech
I came across this today. It appears that the IRS is now in the business of defending (Un)Planned Parenthood. From the news story; “the IRS stated that it would not grant tax exemption until the Coalition swore to limit its “picketing” and “protesting” of Planned Parenthood.” Is this for real? Is the IRS now using the full might of the US to quash free speech? | Read More »
What we can learn from Sarah Palin
Romans 5:6-8 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. For those not following the controversy arising from | Read More »
Homosexual “marriage” now the law in NH
Isaiah 5:20 – Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! New Hampshire used to be a bright red state swimming in a sea of blue in New England. Now, thanks to the hopey changey election of 2008, we have a legislature that has tackled | Read More »
Crackdown on Bible study in San Diego
Cross posted from The Fallen World. I came across this yesterday. It seems that a couple in San Diego have been entertaining a bible study with about 10 – 15 people every week. Seems harmless, right? Not so fast. The couple have been threatened with escalating fines if they continue their studies. Particularly disturbing is the line of questioning reportedly carried out by a county | Read More »
In the beginning there was nothing
And nothing decided it didn’t want to be alone any longer. So out of nowhere, nothing became something and exploded, becoming everything. On this earth day, I can’t help reflecting on what was created for us to enjoy here. Looking around at the sun, sky, trees, grass, clouds, and oceans, I am awed at just how well designed everything is. Yet some will look at | Read More »
After a tea party, how about a tour of the new luxury ladies room?
After the Concord tea party yesterday, Rep. Fran Wendelboe took a group on a guided tour of the newly renovated ladies room in the state house. The renovation was just completed two weeks ago at a price tag of $72,000. Marble walls and floors, granite counter tops, upscale sinks, and nice sconces for mood lighting. And of course the obligatory Democrat senator defending the expenditure. | Read More »
