Shawn Jasper has been placed on the Labor Committee, since it would appear that he cannot get along with anyone and is making the rounds for committee assignments and is now on Labor. There has been some talk that he was placed there because Gary Daniels (Chairman) is perceived by leadership as not being able to control his committee.

I know Gary and he is a decent capable guy who is a non-union supporter; but, will always listen and talk to you. I don’t think Gary cannot control his committee as much as it is the stupid anti worker bills that have been coming before the committee and the committee not supporting them. The only advice I can give Gary is, watch your back.

In my opinion our so called leadership had a serious question, where do we put him next?

I’m not sure labor will be a good fit since Shawn appears to have serious credibility problems based on past testimony on the floor of the house. At the hearing I testified on I thought he had a medical condition when he sat there making faces and rolling his eyes. I suspected he was either hitting on me or had a gas problem.


It is ok to lie when it is to protect the speaker. As many of you know the famous Rep. Susan Emerson Anti Bullying Bill, for the legislature, is in the hearing process. According to the newspapers the speaker denies everything, including talking to Tim Copeland and throwing a hizzy fit at Susan over a couple of budget amendments, is it surprising that Majority Leader Bettencourt is trying to back up the speakers story. Both Tim and Susan had wood shed sessions that were not very nice, with alleged screaming at Susan and threats against Tim. The speaker denies any misbehavior towards Susan and ever meeting with Tim.

I can’t say I heard or saw the misbehavior; but, there were a number of witnesses that did. I can’t find anyone with an ounce of common sense that believes either the speaker or DJ, except for the inner cult circle who continues to admire the emperor’s new clothes.

The big question is if any of these witnesses are willing to come forward what will the house do to a speaker and majority leader that got caught lying to the house, the press and the people of NH?

If the house does nothing than the house walks away with a total lack of credibility; it would appear that disciplinary action would be discussed for both individuals.

I personally saw Tim standing outside the senate chambers door the day of this incident, he looked out of place. When I asked what Tim was doing I was told he was waiting to get his a— chewed for putting in an amendment that he co-sponsored with a democrat. I guess if Tim forgot that he and the rest of us were elected to represent our constituents and not our so called leadership, then he deserved every threat that could be thrown at him. On the other hand, not just for Tim, but the 50 + or – republicans that represent their constituents even against leadership, then they all should be praised and not attacked.

Our so called leadership does not understand that at the end of the day we all have to come home and face our families, our constituents and ourselves in the mirror.

For those 50 I can only say thank you for showing the courage to do the right thing and serve your constituents.

I was reading the Concord Monitor this morning and there was an article about the NH Republican Liberty Caucus and how wonderful they are. If you know them and have been attacked by them it was quite sickening. Did you know they closed the 800 million dollar deficit that the democrats left? The last I knew it hasn’t been closed yet and the cost shifting to the towns and cities is to take place in 2013 after the next election.

Carol McKinney, who wrote the article, was talking about republicans, how they are all members of the Republican Party and by the way they are the only true republicans because they adhere to the party platform. If I remember right it was this special education section of the Free State Project, along with the Free Stators, that infiltrated the Republican Party, and wrote the agenda that is tailored to their ideas and not main stream republicans.

They claim not to be free stators; but, appear to be cross bread as an organization, the groups seem to be made of the same people. So now that they are being brought out into the open are running for cover.

Aren’t these, along with the free stators, the same group that is reducing health insurance coverage for you and your families? Aren’t these the same people who are wiping out your consumer protection coverage that protects you from unscrupulous predatory business practices, like pre-buy oil contracts? I think they are.

These are the same people who attack republicans who do not agree with them or their out of control agenda. They openly brag about attacking republicans who disagree with them to force their will on those who disagree. These people are the true RINO’S Republicans in name only; they are not republicans and are in NH to take the state over politically and institute their psycho anarchistic philosophy.

They are so republican, if you listen to them and believe them, they are trying to institute a third party just for them. I’m in favor of that I just wish it isn’t in NH.

They are hoping to double their numbers in the house and senate in the next election; but, they will be identified in the next election and it will be up to you the voters to join the fight and vote them out of office and keep those who are running out.

The NH way of life is at stake.

So much for the saying, “hope and change”.  In Concord things never seem to change no matter how much we hope for it.  As a young infantry combat sergeant I was told, “never factor hope or luck into a battle plan”,  and since the combat NCO school I was attending was taught by much more experienced combat NCO’s I thought it best to listen and learn; it worked I’m still here.

Concord is different, I don’t remember who said it; but, someone much smarter than I said something to the affect that the definition of lunacy is to keep trying failed experiments in the hopes one will succeed.  I’m not sure but I think it might have been Einstein, but I will stand corrected when someone sends me the actual quote.

I don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know how bad Concord is being run.  We have just gone through another leadership shakeup.  I don’t think I have had a frappe that was shaken up as much as our leadership team.  Most dictators will get rid of their generals when the war doesn’t go the way they want; this usually shows psychologically rooted problems inherent with dictators.

We have a right to work bill coming back, only this time just for state employees the bill smacks of sour grapes and vindictiveness, the only thing we can hope for is more members of the house want to get on with fixing the state problems and not carrying out some crazy vindictive agenda being promoted by the speaker.

We also have repealing gay marriage on the docket.  I have not supported gay marriage; but, this bill goes too far.  There are a couple of lines in it that tells you how to get pregnant and it cannot be by artificial means like infertility fertilization or other such means.  That is really none of my business and government needs to stay out of those issues.

We will be dealing with guns on public property and colleges.  I have a problem with the way this bill is written since college campuses are notorious for drinking, drugs and partying.  Guns do not belong in that kind of atmosphere and I am a firm supporter of the 2d Amendment.  Are the Free State Anarchists trying to turn NH into the Wild West?

The free stator’s attempts at dismantling our state government are becoming more apparent in the consumer protection field.  They are voting against the pre-buy oil contract protection bill claiming that if you get cheated on a pre-buy oil contract than that is your fault and let the buyer beware.  I think one of less intelligent reps from Hampton claimed you were dumb to get involved in pre-buys.  We will gauge the voter’s intelligence on election day.  I will point these people out to you.

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year; we are in tough political and economic times but we will live through it.
