Bearse Warns Party to Change Its Ways or Lose NH CD 1 Again in 2010

This week (Sunday eve, Tuesday morn and Thursday eve, respectively), Congressional Candidate Peter Bearse spoke to the Tri-Town Republican Town Committee (RTC), the House Republican Alliance (HRA) and the Hampstead RTC. Tri-Town brings together Republicans in Stratham, Exeter and North Hampton. The HRA is a caucus of conservative Republicans in the State Legislature. At least 25 members of each group were present. Bearse was warmly received by them.

He spoke a message that is very different from what they are hearing from the other candidates vying for the opportunity to beat current U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter. He said that the GOP will lose a great opportunity to win back the seat lost by Jeb Bradley if it continues to field the go-along/get-along, same-old/same old candidates in ‘10 that lost to the Democrats in ‘06 and ’08. 2010 will be a historic political year, Bearse remarked, because the great American

majority of voters are finally waking up to recognize they’ve got to get involved if the American economy is to be restored and our Republic revived. Independents, most of whom are sick of party politics, will make the difference. Seeking to do just that, they’ll be looking for a different brand of candidate.

Bearse went on to highlight what sets his candidacy apart from the others. He is the only:

v     Doctor of Economics prepared to provide leadership towards economic recovery and help people through the hard times -- the only candidate who has provided an alternative to the so-called “stimulus.”

v     Candidate speaking to people’s main concern: “Congress is Broke and only We the People can fix it!” Thus, Dr. Bearse has provided both the strategy and a program for a 21st Century “Compact with America”.

v     Long-term (40+ years) political activist at a time when people want someone to raise hell in Congress, not play the same-old, go-along/get-along and spend-spend-spend games that threaten to bankrupt America.

v     Candidate to consistently emphasize science, innovation and entrepreneurship as the prime drivers of economic recovery and sources of solutions to a number of the challenges we face. “Are these found in the Congress”, Bearse asked. “No. Are they needed? You betcha”

v     Only one to pledge a “higher level of constituent service”, featuring two additional Congressional offices to help constituents in the northern half of the District --offices to be paid for primarily out of the new Congressman’s salary.

An attachment to this release summarizes Dr. Bearse’s presentation. Time was allowed for Q&A in all settings, so Bearse was able to field a number of questions on some heartfelt issues of concern. Questions from readers of this release would also be welcome. Send to pjbearse@gmail.com or call to 603-819-1408 (campaign cell) to get a response, or go to: nhcd1peterbearse@googlegroups.com to participate in discussions on issues with Peter and others.

FRANK GUINTA ENDORSES GRANT BOSSE FOR CONGRESS IN 00th CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Manchester, NH – Grant Bosse, independent journalist and former Congressional Candidate for New Hampshire’s actually existing 2nd Congressional District, today announced his candidacy for Congress in the now infamous—yet non-existing—00th District in New Hampshire.  The 00th District received a whopping amount of money from the Carol Shea-Porter backed stimulus plan.  That money reportedly created nearly 3000 jobs in that district.  1st District Congressional Candidate Frank Guinta released the following statement on his new New Hampshire colleague in Congressional Candidacy:

 “I completely endorse Grant Bosse in his candidacy for Congress in the 00th District of New Hampshire.  Grant Bosse is the one who discovered this new Congressional District, along with two other phantom districts.  That makes him more on top of the Stimulus funds than the two current Representatives we have who voted for this trillion dollar debacle.  With all those new jobs and dollars being funneled into the district, I believe it deserves representation.  I know many people will tell me that, ‘Frank, but it’s not a real place, it doesn’t exist.’ However, I would argue that if Carol Shea-Porter and her colleagues voted to divvy this trillion dollars out this way, they must be actually sending it somewhere.  The district may be phantom, but the dollars the taxpayers funded this program with are not.  So Carol Shea-Porter should either join me in endorsing Grant Bosse to represent this district, or tell us where the money went and where those jobs actually are. Or, at least admit it’s an absolute disaster that she supported.”

Harvard Medical School Dean Gives ObamaCare a “Failing Grade”

by Hans Bader

The Dean of Harvard Medical School just gave the Obama health care plan a “failing grade,” saying it will harm America’s health and finances, and hamper the medical innovation needed to save patients’ lives. Dean Jeffrey S. Flier writes, "In discussions with dozens of health-care leaders and economists, I find near unanimity of opinion that, whatever its shape, the final legislation that will emerge from Congress will markedly accelerate national health-care spending rather than restrain it. Likewise, nearly all agree that the legislation would do little or nothing to improve quality or change health-care’s dysfunctional delivery system."

Labor's Day at the Federalist Society

by F. Vincent Vernuccio

Workers may get violent if their wages are cut. The United Auto Workers union (UAW) has a monopoly and was an anchor on the Big Three U.S. automakers. These two ideas were professed by two labor leaders at the recent Federalist Society Convention in Washington, D.C. There may be violence, says Damon A. Silvers, Associate General Counsel for the AFL-CIO and Deputy Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP. Silvers spoke on last Friday’s panel “Labor: Wall Street, Labor Unions, and the Obama Administration: A New Paradigm for Capitol and Labor?” Speaking to the panel, he claimed economic downturns which cause people to have their wages cut, can have devastating results.

Making Broadband Accessible: Innovation, Not Intervention

by Ryan Young

FCC regulators want to provide wider and cheaper broadband access by subsidizing it, raising taxes, and forcing network owners to share their network infrastructure with competitors.
A few things the FCC should consider: Subsidies don’t make broadband access any less expensive. They just change who pays for it. In this case, that would be anybody with a phone.

Not Sure What DDT Does to Birds, But I Know How it Helps People

by Michael Fumento

There’s been much in the news lately about the brown pelican being delisted as an endangered species since its recovery from the effects of DDT. I happen to know people whose work I trust who disagree as to whether DDT actually thinned bird eggshells and thus led to declines in various species. That said, all of them are agreed as to the value in saving lives in poor areas – including parts of Africa today.
