Flushing-Money-down-the-toiletI was just minding my own business when this headline scrolled its way before my eyes. “6 things other governments provide that Americans still have to pay for.”

I think it should read “Six things other governments provide for which Americans still have to pay,” but I can write in cursive and also believe that there are thousands of buying decisions laundered through government that every-day Americans are more qualified to make, including the six things in this MSN article.

**Attention All Law Abiding Gun Owners**

Do you want to register your firearms with the government ?
Do you want NH Constitutional Carry repealed?
Do you want a waiting period on all firearms purchases?
Do you want to stop all reciprocity carry agreements between states?
Do you want credit card companies to limit your ability to purchase firearms or accessories? ……..I don’t!

counting Money Taxes DollarsDemocrats have made no secret of their plans to raise taxes. Left-wing leaders at both the Federal and State level are running on erasing tax reform. Here in New Hampshire, candidates for Governor and State Senator as well as other state elected offices are looking to roll back tax cuts on job creators even though the state has experienced record high employment and labor force participation.

All at a time when the evidence suggests that people with the most mobility are migrating to states with lower tax burdens.

Levi Sanders and Brother from another mother Barry-O

Forgot I had transcribed this from WMUR’s CLOSE UP show (Aug 12, 2018) where Levi Sanders, running to be the Democrat candidate in NH’s Second Congressional District even as he lived in CD-1, said the magic words:

On Tuesday or Wednesday, there will be one of the most important votes in the modern history of this country. And that vote will be whether or not in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, we throw 22 million Americans off the health insurance they currently have.

Yeah, once again – wrongthink.  Certainly the idea of a successful Medicare-for-All (which his Dad’s bill isn’t really Medicare-for-all that Bernie touts but is structured more like Medicaid-for-all and jams down lower payments to doctors and hospitals in order to say “see, we lowered healthcare costs” and caring not a whit about the restructuring again of 1/6 of our economy).  This is just a sidenote.  My real point is this:

Molly Kelly

One of the ads Molly Kelly was running during the primary was this gem of Cognitive Dissonance / Political double dealing (emphasis mine)

We’re getting slammed by ever higher electric bills. Eversource is making huge profits. The Governor?  He collected more than $50K from Eversource and vetoed two renewable energy bills. I’m Molly Kelly and I’m running for Governor because I think that’s got to change. As a State Senator, I stood up to the big utilities. I led the fight to expand clean energy and create jobs. I’m not taking any donations from corporate PACs so I won’t owe them anything. We will stop the corporate handouts and put people first.

I’m going to leave PAC crap alone (although we need to see if she’s taking money from unions and Planned Parenthood PACs) for now.  Take those three lines – how much can you get so wrong with so few words?

Senator Charles Ellis Schumer, D-NY and Anti-gun Charlatan

“The job of the President is to make Americans’ lives better.”

Note: this was supposed to be a Quick Thought.  Once again, it didn’t turn out that way.

Really?  That’s the main purpose of being President? That line, by the way, was from US Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on  ” This week with Georgie Steaphanopoulos” back on March 16, 2018

Hmmm. Now I realize that I’m not bonafide Constitutional scholar but I do read it, I bet, much more often than most.  I am confused, however, as I’ve never read that in the US Constitution.  He’s a sitting Senator (been there so long I can’t understand why he hasn’t already calcified in place), and he and I (both of us being elected officials) swore oaths of allegiance to protect said Constitution – wouldn’t that ALSO mean knowing what it says and doing nothing that would violate its precepts.

So what does the Constitution actually say about his duties?

Europe GlobeDecisions have consequences. So do policies.  And while Democrats all over keep insisting that “we’re the only industrialized nation that doesn’t <insert their latest policy complaint here>”, they aren’t all that willing to talk about the consequences of their policies.

Like Venezuela (but the right people haven’t done Socialism right – WE CAN DO IT! Just ask Molly Kelly, the financial advisor genius). And, pretty much, most of Europe.  So, why do the Dems want us to be more like them when our standard of living (mostly) is far better than theirs?

“One of the ordinary modes by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance is by disarming the people and making it an offense to keep arms… The friends of a free government cannot be too watchful to overcome the dangerous tendency of the public mind to sacrifice for the sake of mere private convenience this powerful check upon the designs of ambitious men.”

Skip hitting Tannerite

“…and the whole screen goes blue…the tannerite was so hot it shifted the colors..everything else was that cool in comparison…”

Well, the skies were clear, a nip of autumn was in the air (but still short sleeve weather for most), the smell of hot dogs (DANG – I forgot to bring my chili!) and hamburgers was in the air.  And the firing of guns – including some sub-machine guns and a couple of belt-fed .30 (and was one a .50?) kept the background atmosphere perfect for talks about politics.  Lots of subjects but especially that of the recent Primary election results and talk of what might happen in the General Election.  Especially since Republican candidate for US Congress in the Second District Steve Negron and family showed up. In all, about 15 – 20 folks showed up in total – I was a bit disappointed hoping that the LFGC gun ranges might have enticed a few more folks but hey, that’s how it goes!

Barbed wireDavid Bernstein, writing at the Volokh Conspiracy, has some excellent thoughts on human nature and the compulsion for oppression. Reading it I am reminded of its application to current events. The public rise of Antifa. The open advocacy of the use of force to silence political opponents. The abuses of the bureaucracy in pursuit of partisan political gain. The inherited privilege of the ruling class exemplified in what has been colloquially defined as ‘The Swamp.’

tipping the scales

Well, Peter’s post “Republicans must not cower in the face of Democratic treachery” is getting a bunch of traction in the comments section and as I do from time to time, I mix it up in the comments instead of just putting my thoughts here on the front page.  This time, I just couldn’t help myself in keeping it short and when I was done with one comment by Bruce Currie.

Sidenote: one of the few Liberals that come here to joist with us, I give him the rubric of “honest Liberal” as he is almost always consistent in his views and tries to have a decent conversation; I am hoping he’ll come to one of our MeetUps so as to meet him in person!

Anyways, near the current end of the DISQUS section, he left this on the ongoing allegation concerning Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Bruce Brett Kavanaugh (emphasis mine, H/T: To commenters Paul and Allen for spotting the error):

Negron 10K 4900

Your Individual Right to Self Defense

 DONATE $10.00 TO PROTECT THE FIRST TEN AMENDMENTS

Writing for the majority in District of Columbia v. Heller, Justice Antonin Scalia observed that,

“Nowhere else in the Constitution does a “right’ attributed to ‘the people’ refer to anything other than an individual right.”

The Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is an individual right protected by the Constitution. It’s time for New Hampshire to send someone to Washington who recognizes that.

As your next Congressman Steve Negron will fight to defend all your rights from government overreach but he needs your support.

Democrat Ann Kuster has millions to defend Nancy Pelosi’s values. Will you sign on with Steve and help bring New Hampshire values to Washington?

elizabeth-warren-23453Liz Warren says she isn’t running for President but seeing as she has a reputation for stretching the truth this might prove useful if, in fact, she is building a ground game for a run in 2020.

A new poll has only 32% of Warren’s constituents thinking she should run for president and a whopping 58% think she should not.

gavelDiffering on matters of policy is one thing but the New Left’s presumption of guilt, at least as it applies to presumed political opponents, is despotic. It must be opposed as should be any member of the Democrat Party who condones it.

From the Wall Street Journal c/o Instapundit.

As Ms. Hill and Sen. Hirono aver, the Democratic standard for sexual-assault allegations is that they should be accepted as true merely for having been made. The accuser is assumed to be telling the truth because the accuser is a woman. The burden is on Mr. Kavanaugh to prove his innocence. If he cannot do so, then he is unfit to serve on the Court.

Kavanaugh Case Donkey Elephant

From the very beginning, Democratic lawmakers made it clear they intended to oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Deeply enmeshed in the resistance movement and anti-Trump hysteria, the rationale for their opposition is clear. Kavanaugh is a conservative judge, nominated by a president they revile. Their desperation to derail his nomination was made apparent during the recent chaotic confirmation hearings.

Nothing was disclosed during those hearings that disqualified Judge Kavanaugh, and to the contrary, objective viewers perceived him as an eminently qualified nominee, of the highest moral character.

The Plants say thank you to the U.N. for all the Extra CO2

If you’re going to educate the world about the dangers of carbon dioxide you’re going to have to emit some carbon dioxide, right? And that’s not just from talking.

A draft internal audit, obtained by the Guardian and seen by the BBC, says that Erik Solheim’s actions risked the reputation of UN Environment. The report says he incurred costs of $488,518 (£373,557) while traveling for 529 out of 668 days.

Take That - Kurt Schlichter

I can’t always pull quotes or adequately summarize his Townhall columns but they are really amusing and will become part of my contributions to Grok 3.0 “Around the Web” (or as Steve calls it: “Stuff we’d like to blog about but haven’t had the time,” which I think is a more descriptive title).  So here he is in his own video podcast, “TAKE THAT! with Kurt Schlichter” on the Democrat agenda of personal destruction aimed at Conservatives:

School houseMany people have never heard the name Glenn Cordelli, but if you are a parent, you should get to know him.  Glenn Cordelli is a state representative in New Hampshire serving in Moultonborough, Sandwich, and Tuftonboro.  He finished up his third term, and will hopefully be elected for a fourth term in November.

Representative Glenn Cordelli recently put forth a Bill that would require each local education agency to develop a local data security plan. HB1612 was signed into law by Governor Sununu in August, and now school boards across New Hampshire will have to develop a Data Inventory Security Plan.

This is such an important issue now in public education that the FBI has issued warnings to parents:

Everytown endorses anti-gunners in NH Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties

[Art.] 2-a. [The Bearing of Arms.] All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state.
December 1, 1982

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

So, these anti-gun and anti-NH Constitution candidates have been endorsed by Big Democrat money (Nanny Bloomberg who keeps this group alive) “Everytown For Gun Safety” (incremental civilian disarmament is more truthful) Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties.

Some Documents “Climate” Colluders Don’t Want Released

by Steve MacDonald September 21, 2018

If there are documents available that make your case on your view of things you’d want the people to see them, yes? No! While Congressional Democrats wrestle with their own sudden disinterest in transparency, some “climate” scientists are bemoaning a court order forcing the publicly funded university for whom they work to release emails in response to a 7-year […]

Congressional Democrats Suddenly Don’t Want “Collusion” Documents Declassified

by Steve MacDonald September 21, 2018

Democrats have been demanding transparency. When the recent FISA application was released with redactions at least a few of them are said to have claimed that there were more damning details under those redactions. I guess that’s true. When Mr. Trump approved the declassification of some of those documents last week, Congressional Democrats lined up to […]

Dartmouth’s Ideological Free Speech Divide: Why Democrats Need to Lose Again in 2018

by Steve MacDonald September 20, 2018

Reposted: Originally Published May 30, 2018 A few days ago, we reported on a survey of Dartmouth student’s that questions their tolerance and diversity when it comes to dating, befriending, or just interacting with someone who has opposing political beliefs. There were no surprises. Democrats shunned the idea while Republicans were much more accepting. Further down […]

Renewable Green Energy Mandates – Families and Job Creators Hit Hardest

by Steve MacDonald September 20, 2018

New Hampshire has a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). The Democrat majority state government pushed it through back when John Lynch was governor. It requires electricity providers to buy a percentage of the power you pay for from more expensive sources. Those costs are then passed on to consumers. If the state didn’t make them they wouldn’t […]

“Millennial elitist dorks are all about screwing up burgers.”

Kurt Schlichter mourns the demise of the Ultimate ‘normal’ American food. Millennial elitist dorks are all about screwing up burgers. “Gourmet” burgers, they call them. But they are a sad simulacrum of true burgers, and a crime against nature. The menus of those precious gastropubs that spring up in the gentrified blue coastal urban centers are […]
