Does anyone have concerns about, or questions you would like me to ask, NH state reps and senators or other politicians/bureaucrats this year?   Particularly I want questions to ask the bad guys, not so much friendlies - everyone else talks to friendlies so I don't want to duplicate that.  

The more names, the more concerns, and the more questions I receive from you the better I can do my gig....

Some questions I won't ask, if they seem too hyperbolic or boring. But I hope many of you will put many questions out there for me to relay.....

Would prefer you post them publicly on this thread so I don't have to log in to read them.

Gun rights. Where they stand, if they'll defend 2A or try and eviscerate it.

I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act." - Why The Gun is Civilization

  Land Rights. If they think the use of private property is a zoning matter, or if ICLEI and Agenda 21 sustainability rules supersede? Will they resist Dc,s rural mandates and initiatives

Why the fuck does New Hampshire Medicaid cover routine infant male circumcision? Can't their be a wide left right coalition against tax payers being forced to pay for the abuse of the babies in poor families?

What information do you need to make this request more political? A lot of states just cut funding like snap. I don't see why I need to be pc. I'm not even requesting making unnecessary infant circumcision fully illegal, yet. Why is NH being so embarrassingly barbaric?

Travis has a point. Its a direct effect that they can change.

How about repeal of the Renewable Portfolio Standards?
We know that repeal of RGGI isn't going to happen.

Because taxation is theft.  Thieves don't ask you how to spend your money.

Thanks for at least responding!  However I'm looking less for policy questions and more for a vote or deed which I can confront a specific official about.   For example, "rep so and so you voted in favor of a bill which would ban teachers from carrying firearms.   Does that kind of vote make you potentially responsible for any innocents harmed in the event that a shooter enters the building?"  

Just start keeping your eyes open if you would for this kind of question you can post here...

Meanwhile I may be able to do something or another with one or more of these suggestions.

Ahh good point, but since Dave is talking to politicians bureaucrats [cringes] I thought I'd take Penn Jillette's first do what we can all agree on. Also Dave's win win scenario. The state keeps the stolen money for real needs and the intactivist are happy with a small victory in the state with the highest rates in New England.


States that have ceased Medicaid paid circumcision

I hope New Hampshire libertarians gain praise from the intactivist community. So many of them are very close to the NAP rabbit hole. Think of it as advertisement.

There were 6 republicans that voted for the House gun ban rule for the chamber and gallery.  http://granitegrok.com/blog/2013/01/gun-free-new-hampshire-house These folks need to have a primary challenge in '14. Steve Vaillancourt should be an interesting interview.

I truly think asking any Republican/Democrat about repeal of the Renewable Portfolio Standard and their position on it would be enlightening. The Republicans espouse the libertarian ideal of 'free markets', so they should be in support of repeal. And the Democrats espouse the ideal of protection of the poor and common man, so they should be in support of repeal. It questions both sides ideology equally.

THAT is the kind of tip I'm looking for and can do interesting-something with.  If I bump into the right people.  Thanks Mike.

I guess get me the names of some NH politicians who have supported forcing taxpayers to underwrite cicrumsision.  Then I have a better chance at ambush interviewing them about it.

So this wouldn't be an issue for the vast number of legislators that haven't done anything to stop it?

Mike's question delivered this week n ambush interviews of House Speaker and one of the GOP turncoats.  House Speaker didn't do much speaking to me...lol.  Will air these as I can get to them... got a huge backlog of vids.  Oh I also got Vallancourt, though I may be spelling his name wrong.  He also sold us out on this but was cool about explaining himself to the RidleyCam.  Keep the questions coming, but again I don't want to ask policy position questions so much as "so and so why did you do X" type questions.
