by Tim Condon April 30, 2013

This from Judicial Watch: “For decades the U.S. government has knowingly given illegal immigrants food stamps, according to a former certification case worker who denounced the costly practice back in the 1980s but was essentially ordered to keep a lid on it.” Meanwhile, “the nation’s food stamp program has exploded under President Obama.” Read the […]

Stella Tremblay Already Proven Right – Sort of…

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2013

Democrats love to dither over context, so here’s a stick in your eye. Tremblay, who bless her heart refuses to back down despite being badgered by the left over her own personal concerns about US government sponsored domestic terrorism with regard to the Boston Marathon bombing, was–to some degree at least–correct.   Skip provided that tid-bit […]

Why Would NH State Senator Jeb Bradley Want to Harpoon the Nano-Brewery Bill?

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2013

Word has it that a backroom deal has been ‘crafted’ to harpoon the nano-brewery bill. I say ‘backroom’ and ‘crafted’ because a recent executive committee session for HB253 did not attract a single lobbyist.  The New Hampshire beer cartel didn’t send any hired guns to pimp their interests.  No one from the liquor commission bothered to show […]

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2013

GAO to Investigate Ammunition Stockpiling By Federal Agencies

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2013

The Government accountability office (GAO) has begun looking into why the Obama administration is arming agencies with enough ammo to sustain the average war for 27 years?  Good question.  We’ve been wondering that ourselves.  Why would a guy who claimed that the country needed a civilian national security force be arming the department of education, […]

by Skip April 29, 2013

“The Tsarnaev brothers were state-supported terrorists. The state was Massachusetts.” Howie Carr was talking about this on his radio show today – what the Herald (the paper where he is a columnist) had gotten from the State of MA for welfare payments via FOIA demands – 500 pages with welfare payments over $100,000.

You might be a Democrat if:

by Skip April 29, 2013

Heh!  I love it when the Democrat definition of “Consistency” is spotlighted: You might be a Democrat if you believe… Fighting against government-subsidized contraceptives constitutes a “war on women,” but when Islamists stone a woman to death because she was raped, it is just “cultural differences.” Fighting against government-subsidized contraceptives constitutes a “war on women,” […]

Gee, this is old news at Liberty Harbor Academy: Teens Do Better When School Starts Later.

by Skip April 29, 2013

I’ve known about this for quite some time – teens developing brains are naturally off-cycle time-wise from the rest of us.  I remember, back when, when it was quite easy to sleep late – like all morning long on a weekend or holiday if nothing was scheduled.  So when the President and Dean of Liberty […]

A PERFECT case of “Bad decision? You own the bad consequence(s)” – Part 2

by Skip April 29, 2013

Or is it more a case of: Biden: “IF IT ONLY SAVES ONE LIFE!” Of course not – Progressives are only concerned about “saving one life” when it comes to guns; face it, we law-abiding citizens will, at the drop of a Liberal’s hat, fling that fully auto mini-gun from over our shoulder and run […]

So they believe that if you have too much private property (too much cash), they have the perfect way to steal it from you: write a bill!  After all, it isn’t FAIR that you have earned so much by stealing it from the poor and middle class.  They have far better purposes for what your […]
