I stopped by the town hall in Peterborough to see the Tax Day Protest. It was a motivated group. Here are some photos of the event.

Hey Trump, don’t trash my state

No one has ever died using my Amazon Link on Cyber Monday, that cannot be said of Black Friday

I didn’t vote for this guy, and I hope that we can survive under the Kakistocracy of his reign.  However I have to ask in which recess of his adolescent brain did the idea that New Hampshire has SERIOUS voter fraud? I can vouch for my state. When we go to the polls we have to present a photo ID. We mark PAPER ballots which are read by an optical scanner. There is physical evidence of how we vote.  Why does this guy have such a problem with telling the truth?

After he won the election I told myself that I needed to take a break. I was unhappy with the result and there was nothing else to do but donate money to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, NRDC, SPLC, and ProPublica.

I told myself to stop blogging about the guy and posting to Facebook. But the guy is going after the state that I call home and that I love. Why pick on Virginia, a beautiful state?  I was stationed in California in the Navy, what a great place. Why single that out? What the hell is wrong with this guy? Can you believe he actually won?

I have only questions, no answers. Sometime in the future presidential historians will write books about this. I hope I’m around to read them.

 

It’s About the Ground Game

How many time have you heard the term “Ground Game” applied to the politics? It refers to organizing folks to knock on doors and make calls for their candidates. Hillary Clinton is a flawed candidate, but she does have the “Ground Game”. Recently I saw it in operation when I attend the annual Labor Day Parade in Milford, NH. Milford is the ideal venue for Politicians, it has an town oval that concentrates folks and has what might be called good “optics”. The Democrats were there in force, driving around on a truck bearing the Teamster Union Label. Lots of banners and even balloons. No sign of Trumpsters and folks like Kelly Ayotte didn’t bother to add his name to their banners.

John and Kelly
I had the opportunity to meet Kelly Ayotte. She is an advocate for Veterans but her “support” for the orange idiot is a non-starter with me. The refusal of voting on the nomination of Merrick Garland sealed the deal. Sorry Kelly, I know you are a good person but Trump? I wasn’t going to argue with her on Labor Day she was very pleasant. I also had the opportunity to meet with Maggie Hassan but no “Selfie”.
Hassan, Kuster, Hillary
The Democrats have the volunteers and the balloons.
Trump Supporters
This was the Trump effort, two guys offering a signed hat. I did sign up. I will post a photo if I win. I’ll do something creative with the hat.
Trump Supporter
I felt a little sorry for this guy. I asked if he was going to be in the parade and he was going to meet up with the Trump supporters. I assume those two guys would eventually wander by, but no one else.
