Koch Brothers Mailers In Manchester Municipal Election

This week we received two 8 1/2 x 11 -inch full-color card-stock mailers from “Generation Opportunity”, the same folks who’ve been running the “Creepy Uncle Sam” adds to make ObamaCare scary, and otherwise trying to keep young adults uninsured. The Nation ran a piece on them a month ago. I don’t recall ever seeing a […]

“Free Staters told to set clock for 2015″

That’s today’s headline from the NH Sunday News (Union Leader).  Yesterday, at the Liberty Forum in Nashua, the president of the Free State Project, Carla Gericke, said that she didn’t want to wait for 20,000 people to sign up before they swarm into New Hampshire. Apparently, their “Free State Now” recruitment drive isn’t working. She […]

20,000 political activists to move to state in 2015-2016?

“Economics And Politics Clash Over NH Tax Revenue Forecast”

Last Tuesday, economist Dennis Delay with the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies spoke at the Joint Economic Session.  He noted that “Two-thirds of New Hampshire revenue does not grow with the economy, or is volatile.” Neal Kurk added, more or less “… and that’s a good thing.” Good reporting by Amanda Loder of […]

Meet the Candidates – Manchester’s Free Staters and other Friends of Liberty

"The Top Ten Reasons The Mafia Is Better Than The State" That’s the title of a rant written by Emily Sandblade, co-winner of the Manchester primary yesterday for Ward 11 alderman.  She’s a Free State Project immigrant from Washington State.  Here’s a picture of her burning a Federal Reserve Note – I guess she wants […]

Call me… irresponsible

The NH House Special Committee on Education Funding deadlocked 7-7 yesterday on whether to accept the Senate’s version of the kill-Claremont amendment.  The difference?  Two words: House: “the general court shall have the authority and full discretion” Senate: “the general court shall have the authority, responsibility and discretion”… [[to define standard and accountability, and to […]
