You're Looking Sharp Tommy

While the big boys of the Democrat party gang up on poor little Hillary, our feisty salon owner, David Holden, is lining them up at his HairBiz Salon in Concord – just three doors down from the Edwards for President - Concord, campaign HQs.

A measly $400.00 bucks for a haircut is the challenge, with the money going to autism charities. That is the catch.

The “score” so far: Governor Mike Huckabee came to HairBiz TWICE, once for the challenge and once for a quick trim on the day he signed up at the NH Secretary of State’s Office. Huck has become a regular Granite Stater.

Senator McCain was an “almost”, as in his timing was off and the shop was closed, when the McCain people planned to stop in. We are waiting for a return visit.

Today, Congressman Tom Tancredo stopped in for the “HairBiz Autism Challenge”.

Tom Tancredo actually needed a haircut. He sat down in the chair and was about as mobbed with media as any candidate I have seen so far. He loved it! As I have written before, Congressman Tancredo is a “comfortable in his own skin” type of guy.

I have met Tom Tancredo several times and I interviewed him on NH Taxpayer Radio earlier this year. There is no denying he is the single, solid, consistent, voice regarding illegal immigration, which is like it or not, the one issue that will turn this presidential election. Democrats can bash Bush until the sap starts to run – he isn’t a candidate vying for a spot on the next ticket.

Congressman Tom Tancredo is.

The Democrats talk about illegal immigration at their own peril. If they look soft –as in drivers licenses for illegals, they are doomed. They do not hold enough of a majority to play games with amnesty or open borders. They have seen Gov. Elliot Spitzer start sputtering and even dragging the invincible Hillary down with his illegal illegal license scheme.

That is the wonderful thing about watching someone like Tom Tancredo in a crowd, be it a small NH hair salon or with a group of seasoned political junkies.

He doesn’t have to fake it.


The Charter They Come The Harder They Fall - One And All

This how a MUNICIPAL CHARTER works! (This one happens to be in Newmarket,NH)

Section 1.2. Form of Government._The administration of the fiscal, prudential, municipal, and other affairs of the Town, with the governance thereof, shall be vested in a Town Council, shall be directed by a Town Administrator, and shall consist of the various departments of the Town as established by this Charter and from time to time by the Town Council. Except as expressly authorized by this Charter, no Councilor shall participate in the conduct of the administrative affairs of the Town. (Effective 1990)

I like the part about how no (elected) Councilor shall participate in the conduct of the administrative affairs of the town. It says so much without being “wordy”, if you know what I mean.

What you have in Newmarket, NH is administration by experts, not the lowly taxpayers through a traditional Town Meeting form of government or even by the elected Councilors for that matter. Pro’s handle the real heavy lifting.

Even “affairs” have been covered in this simple language.

And it looks like someone has been doing some “lifting” in Newmarket since there are several thousand items the forensic audit, done by an out of state firm, has found.

As usual in NH the people responsible for the, what appears to be theft of town funds, have left for greener pastures. I warned Kingman, Arizona already.

The Coalition of NH Taxpayers opposes municipal charters most of the time because local government means just that. Charters on the other hand bring “elite, professional” government by hot-shot administrators and more often than not, sleepy, well connected, do as you are told, councilmen.

As usual the local papers are not knocking down doors looking for info on this most recent municipal scandal. No real facts are coming to light except the six week body makeover paid for with a town credit card. They are hoping this single subject will be found not to be true then the whole audit can be discredited then ignored and we can all move on.

I credit the anonymous 136 taxpayers in Newmarket who petitioned to have the audit in the first place.

They are the heroes of the story - and the Town.

Here is a suggestion to them:

Amend or get rid of the Charter!!!!


Bhutto Bhutts In

Beware foreign entanglements. Yea, right!

Every day in the liberal mainstream media I see a new, stronger, push towards “restoring democracy in Pakistan” by ousting President Musharraf.

And with whom are we foreign experts going to replace him with, since it is now our job to meddle in Pakistan politics?

The lady with the headscarf, Benazir Bhutto looks like a pleasant lady, and she is calling for Musharraf to resign. Lucky us! Just in time.

Here are the pros for Benazir:

She has been deposed from office in Pakistan for corruption – twice.
Benazir has a degree from Harvard – and that proves she can do what?
She was a supporter of the Taliban back in their prime.
Her party, the PPP, is socialist – a big bonus with elites worldwide.

I say we make the switch from Musharraf to the Bhutto gang ASAP. Pakistan can stand another looting by the Bhutto family.

And besides, what’s the down side?


Class Warfare

The guy with CLASS won!

Mayor Guinta was re-elected Mayor of Manchester, NH despite the despicable mailings that come from under the rock at Amsterdam Democrat headquarters.

I don't know the other candidates for alderman and school board or the inside scoop and relationships between them so "no comment" other than the couple I saw at ward 4 where I was seemed like nice enough people.

The Re-elect Mayor Guinta victory party was fun. I don't go to many because CNHT does mostly school and town work, but seeing Marshall Cobliegh, Mayor Ray, Stretch (no last name needed), Biundo/Wilkins, and some of the other grass roots crowd was worth the trip.

Mayor Guinta was gracious and brief in his victory speech. His victory this time was larger than last.

The newly elected and current Aldermen should take note. The Manchester Republicans have two years to put their own political machine together if they can put aside internal squabbles and set an agenda (I suggest another spending cap try).

The time might be right now that the old tried and true dirty politics are no longer as effective.


Ha, Ha, Dover Has A Spending Cap!

Maybe we should call it the “City manager Paul Beecher Memorial Spending Cap”.

Admit it, the spending cap overwhelmingly adopted by Dover voters Tuesday was a direct result of that sneaky weasel’s actions as former City Manager of Dover before he escaped and got a job in Kingman Arizona. A job I should add Beecher was fired from August 10 of this year. Little did Beecher know there was no paper in Kingman such as Foster’s Daily Spendocrat that would provide him cover in that city.

Dave Scott was re-elected as City Councilor as well. Nice touch.

So now out of 13 cities in NH 4 have spending caps. Nice start.

Since you can only put a spending cap on a municipality with a charter, as opposed to town government, you would guess we have only 9 spending caps more to go, right?

Not really.

Ever since the adoption of Senate Bill #2, also known as RSA 40:13, the NH Municipal Association and other pro-government groups have been pushing charters for towns, putting local government under the whimsical dictates (as decided by superior court judges when things get litigated) of an individual charter rather than state statutes most of the 230 some towns use to govern themselves.

This means that if pro-charter/anti-SB#2 tax and spenders want to avoid direct voter control over spending at a Town Meeting and take over a town with a charter form of government, they also risk having a spending cap placed on their municipality at a later date AFTER they spend the community into a disaster like they always do.

Back when “Sh..ty Manager” Paul Beecher was in his glory signing backroom deals with his cronies in Dover City Hall he was for a time the head of the NH Municipal Association as well.

What a nice legacy Paul Beecher left.

Congratulations Dave Scott!!!
