The Very Model of a Democratic Party

That’s what we have in the Strafford County Democratic Committee in New Hampshire. That’s what accounts for the county being a bastion of democrats in a sea of pink (New Hampshire Republicans are wishy-washy when they are not plain crazy). The Strafford County Democrats are better than little league baseball, which can only be played […]

Crazier than Trump

You didn’t think That was possible? On Capitol Hill it is. So, what’s the point?  Congress has suddenly discovered that their control of the public purse, which they have been pretending not to value, is about to be supplanted by direct payments from the Treasury, untouched by Congressional hands.

Live Free and Die
