“Act of Valor” – Real heroes.

by Skip June 7, 2012

I am not a movie person – TMEW is, but not me.  But given what I read about Act of Valor, I was convinced that I wanted to see it.  Having missed it in the local theaters, I bought it.  Watching it right now.  It shows that the folks in the action scenes are real […]

by Skip June 7, 2012

Politico (reformatted here, emphasis mine): The Heritage Foundation and Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity will host an awards dinner this Friday in honor of Andrew Breitbart, the conservative firebrand who passed away earlier this year.  The first annual Breibart Awards dinner, which will take place in Providence, R.I., is part of the two […]

Internet Doodlings – Another taste of Enviros using “We know what is best for you” to mask totalitarianism

by Skip June 7, 2012

Heh!  But again, not so heh!  We laugh, but they mean it.  Over at TreeHugger (they have become such a source of sport!), they were discussing the righteousness of NYC-Nanny-Chieftain Mayor Bloomberg’s (whose own dietary predilections do not match his public policy for the rest of his “citizens”) declaration that he would solve the obesity […]

As a Public Service We Present…The Republican Repair Kit

by Steve MacDonald June 7, 2012

In New Hampshire it is time to announce your plans to run for public office this November.  We’d like to encourage every good Conservative and Libertarian with the time and inclination to consider running for the New Hampshire House, Senate, or any elected office. Now you may say to yourself, you know what, we’ll probably […]

Breaking News: Rick Parent is going to challenge Frank Guinta in NH’s First Congressional District.

by Skip June 7, 2012

Rick, a chief engineer on a ship that has been ferrying supplies to our troops in the Middle East, signed on for the campaign yesterday at the NH Secretary of State’s office.  While he ran in the last election cycle, and held good positions on issues, he just did not have the name recognition to […]

Occuppy Wall Street – if you’ve lost Harvard….

by Skip June 7, 2012

Frankly, Occupy Wall Street has pretty much left Occupy Wall Street (with, perhaps, the lone exceptions being San Francisco and Oakland as the only sites still making national news once in a while).  This did catch my eye – as there was an abortive attempt at Hahvahd University to have an Occupy outpost there as […]

Do Seat Belt Laws Make A Difference?

by Steve MacDonald June 7, 2012

Not much appeals to me this morning so I took thirty minutes to do an unscientific survey of NHTSA state motor vehicle fatality data for the northeast.  (Wow, Steve–that sounds exciting.)  I wanted to see if Seat Belt Laws had any measured affect on deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT). First off, I […]

Revisionism by the Left over Wisconsin has already started – the New Media will not let them

by Skip June 7, 2012

I’ve got more to say about the results in WI later on today (TMEW and I celebrated our 31st Wedding Anniversary, so more important things override the insatiable need to blog – good thing, too!).  However, the Left is already trying to sew themselves up and stop the public bleeding – and trying to use […]

When it comes to Green Jobs, Obama Administration: “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean”

by Skip June 7, 2012

From Alice in Wonderland: “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.” Well, I could easily say that the Obama Administration has been nonsensical in how it uses words (been listening to Jay Carney, his Press […]
