Republicans hold no monopoly on delusional politics of late. Democrats nationally seem convinced that their off-year election loss in Virginia was due to their delay in passing Uncle Joe Biden’s Build Back Bigger (BBB) plan.

Biden, Nancy Pelosi and company were convinced that gifting the people with billions and billions of dollars of their own money and massive debt would have bought enough votes to push their gubernatorial candidate to victory.

We think what really motivated voters in Virginia and also New Jersey, where the Democrat barely survived, was concern that big government overreach has gone way too far this time. Biden’s gang may have actually have sensed this in waiting until after last week’s elections to roll out the latest government order, mandating vaccinations for millions of private companies and their workers or else.

One could also sense this concern in U.S. Rep. Chris Pappas’ theatrics last week. One Biden Back Bigger scheme was to have the government track your private bank account, even with a balance as little as $600. It was shouted down weeks ago and removed from the plan. (Local banks and credit unions were among those that had raised the alarm on this, including on these pages.)

But there was brave Chicken Tender Chris holding a press conference to announce that he is still opposed to the scheme. Yeah, and he’s going to be keeping an eye on the issue, too. So, there.

If you are of a certain age, Thanksgiving is a reminder of a sad and solemn anniversary. On Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

It was terrific welcoming the return of championship boxing to New Hampshire a week ago. Topping the card was the undefeated Rhode Island WBO middleweight champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade, who scored a second round stoppage against game Irishman Jason Quigley.

In the matter of vaccine mandates, some New Hampshire lawmakers who bridle at Joe Biden’s attempts to dictate to businesses have no problem in themselves telling business what they cannot do.

A posse of self-styled “liberty moms” has offered a $500 “bounty” on teachers found to be violating New Hampshire’s new law banning the teaching of “divisive concepts” in public schools.

Before Bob Lawton came along, New Hampshire’s license plates featured the bland and blah word “scenic.” Thanks to him, “Live Free or Die” is on our plates and is the envy of states across the nation.
