Marriage and the NHGOP Platform

By Carolyn McKinney

marriageTo advocates for removing “traditional” from marriage in the NHGOP platform.

First, you are guilty of using the most frustrating and pernicious leftist debate tactic.

To try to make your case, you use examples outside the norm – such as families who adopt, grandparents raising their grandchildren, single parents due to the death of a spouse – in an attempt to undermine the norm. It’s no different than those who are pro-abortion trying to undermine opposition to abortion by raising rare cases of rape and incest, or more recently, using the existence of intersex persons to try to undermine natural sex/gender.

A Change of Plans…

The New Media Militia mission is to share local content without exposition. Excerpt – link – done! It’s a lot more work than you might imagine, and after nearly a year of doing it every day, I need that time to focus on other things.

The idea isn’t gone, however. I am looking to incorporate this content sharing (Excerpt – link – done!) as a separate part of the GraniteGrok.com site remodel which can use your support!

Until that’s funded and done, I’ll be moving the content I typically post on this page to GraniteGrok (New Hampshire’s Conservative media website) and reconsidering what purpose these pages will serve.

For now, please go to GraniteGrok.com  to see what there is on offer.

And thanks for reading!

NH State Rep Sherry Frost – what, she thinks she’s now the Sandra Fluke of knees?

Of COURSE you must remember Sandra Fluke – we wrote about her often enough (Steve: ‘Sandra ““I can’t afford my own 9$/month birth control pills” Fluke) who turned the word “access” (it is available and I can buy it) into meaning “I want it – you have to buy it for me; if it ain’t free for me, I have no access to it” never understanding or acknowledging that she believes she should have a free ride on the backs of others for her “fun”.
