Sustainable Development-101

by Tom February 18, 2013

  Lotsa talk about “sustainable-this” and “sustainable-that“, and blah-blah-blah.  You know it’s dangerous and insidious, but you’re a spectator and it’s overwhelming – I get it.  I’ve spent way too many sunny days, indoors, studying this nonsense, and there are others who have put in even more time. Hell, I never even got to write Part-3 […]

Rape News from Colorado

by Skip February 18, 2013

Can we throw in Whoopie Goldberg’s “rape rape” remark to set the stage?  This may turn out to be “enlightening”.  Earlier today, the University of Colorado (no Righty Ivory Tower, them) put out some guidelines for females for “rape prevention”.  Then a Colorado DEMOCRAT Representative Joe Salazer (not even an old white guy, he) decided […]

Get “far away from the USA…its collapse will be messy”

by Tom February 18, 2013

We all know it and see it – the deficit, the debt, Fed Quantitative Easing, the burgeoning Socialism of America.  If you are like me, you might be taking some modest steps toward living (surviving) a post-economic collapse.  Or, you may not be. Some think it unthinkable, some see pending doom. I’m in the middle; […]

Facebook Doodlings – in which I may have called out Lloyd over at TreeHugger

by Skip February 18, 2013

Well, I do go over to TH from time to time, and even leave comments.  Well, there was a post by Lloyd (“90 by 50 plan could reduce New York City’s emissions by 90% by 2050“), someone that doesn’t always take kindly to Conservative or Libertarians assaulting what seems to be an Environmental Communitarian mantra.  […]

“Chase” That Chill Away – HB 307 is Dead.

by Steve MacDonald February 18, 2013

Last Wednesday the New Hampshire House voted on HB 307, an act relative to government being a big pain in the ass.  Wait…that would be most of the bills and all of the ones written by Democrats.   I’ll be more specific. HB 307 – AN ACT relative to the removal of certain wood stoves upon the sale of a […]

What if we DIDN’T have the genius of Federalism? Magpul is an object lesson

by Skip February 18, 2013

Grokster Steve just put this post up concerning Colorado based Magpul, one of the premier gun magazine manufacturers in the country (along with lots of other accessories – and yes, I have a few of their mags).  Right at the end is this announcement from the CEO, warning Colorado legislators they are not bluffing (emphasis […]

[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. Yet another bill on the Gun Control system.  Gidge must think that he’s got a winner here – if the mentally ill are the ones using guns to […]

Alec Baldwin – Card Carrying Member of the Liberal Aristocracy

by Steve MacDonald February 18, 2013

When you are a member of the protected class you can do whatever you want without fear of being treated like the regular people.  Alec Baldwin is a rich, connected, member of the liberal aristocracy.  When he cries out for the occupy movement and the 99% no one asks him how he can simultaneously accuse rich bankers […]

Book note: “Jesus, A Biography from a Believer”

by Tim Condon February 18, 2013

Whether you’re a believer or not, this short “biography of Jesus” by renowned historian Paul Johnson is well worth reading. Jesus’s teachings were essentially libertarian, and gave birth to the freedom, inventiveness, justice, and wealth of Western Civilization (under assault and beleaguered though all may be today). In the book the author audaciously posits that […]

Will New Hampshire Democrats Vote for Indefinite Detention?

by Steve MacDonald February 18, 2013

It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to discover whether or not your elected officials are more interested in government power over the people or in using their own authority in the defense of liberty.  But HB399, the New Hampshire Liberty Act, may provide us with a window into the heart of those […]

From Ace of Spades: Unworthy: We’re Losing the Battle of Ideas to a Bunch of Low-Information Snarking Hipsters

by Susan Olsen February 18, 2013

After Granite Grok, Ace of Spades is probably my favorite read.  I have no idea who ‘Ace’ is – a lawyer, a professor, a soldier, or simply a thoughtful and informed citizen.  Like Grok, subjects run the gamut from politics to technology to the occasion movie review but yesterday, Ace wrote a piece about a […]

O Lights Another Exploding Cigar

by Scott Morales February 18, 2013

The cunning charlatan-in-chief has once again outdone and outsmarted someone… himself. Just last month, one of O’s schemes exploded in the faces of his voters as if they were attending an exploding cigar festival and he was the one doling out the stogies.  O promised not to raise taxes on families making under $250,000. Then, […]
