by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

by Skip March 1, 2013

I have to say that I have been quite happy with the leadership of the Belknap County Convention this year in setting a “protect the taxpayer outlook” in examining and correcting the budget that the Belknap County Commissioners set at the beginning of the budgetary cycle.  Yes, I said correcting!  Even though they are elected […]

Notable Quote – Jonah Goldberg

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

From Today’s G- File Anyway, the interesting thing about the sequester is how it exposes the shallowness of his (Obama’s) moral-equivalent-of-war rhetoric (or, if you prefer, his equally ridiculous elision of “community” or “family” with “government”). When military units have a hardship, they make do. When communities come up short of money, everyone pitches in. […]

AFP – Remembering Andrew Breitbart.

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

March 01, 2013 A year ago today we were stunned by the loss of the prolific, insightful and passionate new-media general Andrew Breitbart.

14th amendment Doesn’t Give Right to a Three-Way?

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

CATO has submitted an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in which it makes the case that the 14th amendment prohibits states from denying anyone from the right to marry, regardless of gender. It is a compelling argument.  There are ample references to legal opinions, plenty of implications of the spirit of equality under the law, but […]
