Decisions have consequences – even on Mother’s Day

by Skip May 12, 2013

We just returned from a dinner out – courtesy of the Youngest who had asked if he could take TMEW out for Mother’s Day – a very pleasant time and not a single word about blogging or politics out of me (er, maybe that was the reason for “a very pleasant time”?).  Yet, for at […]

At SteynOnline, “The Benghazi Lie.” At Cold Fury, “Steyn Stumbles.”

by Tim Condon May 12, 2013

“Cold Fury”? It’s a blog site with an excellent analysis of a recent column by Mark Steyn (a citizen of the Free State of New Hampshire by the way). The writing at Cold Fury, Steyn Stumbles, is well worth reading. So is Steyn’s column, The Benghazi Lie. Both are well worth it.

Gregory Hicks Supported Hillary and Obama

by Steve MacDonald May 12, 2013

According to his attorney, one of the men “speaking truth to power” on Benghazi (Gregory Hicks) is a registered Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary, then later voted for Barack Obama.  Twice. And why wouldn’t he be?  He was the deputy chief of mission in Libya before Chris Stevens was executed by […]

Tyranny – Some might say it is already here, Mr. President – Part II

by Skip May 12, 2013

When I wrote this post about Government Tyranny, I forgot to say anything at all about President Obama’s outlook – a VERY Progressive (which translates to “incremental Socialism”) outlook of what Government should be.  Progressives are technocrats – they  believe that Government should be stocked by experts that are there to organize Society to be […]

Showing, once more, that Totalitarians have a very diminished sense of humor

by Skip May 12, 2013

We all know that NYC Mayor Mikey Bloomberg is both a sour puss and has a predilection to make choices for peoples’ lives (as opposed to letting Citizens do that for himself) that seems to be rivaled only by his billionaire wealth.  His outlook is that of NH State Rep Kris Roberts (“Government has to […]

“Nobody wants to take away your guns….” Yeah, right

by Skip May 12, 2013

Obama himself, in 1996, stated he was in favor of a complete ban on handguns and “assault weapons” as well as concealed carry.  He also was on the Board at the Joyce Foundation that handed out money to groups that want to disarm the populace.  And in the past few months, we have heard NY […]

Tyranny – Some might say it is already here, Mr. President

by Skip May 12, 2013

Tyranny:  Cruel and oppressive government or rule. RealClearPolitics – PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that […]

Happy? Single Mother’s Day

by Steve MacDonald May 12, 2013

The statistics for the real modern family are dominated by the single parent household.  The single parent household is overwhelmingly run, or not as the case may be, by a mom.  Somewhere around 84% of them are fatherless children.  Many of those never knew their father or are detached from them. The leading cause of […]

Are Liberals really THIS dependent upon Government that…

by Skip May 12, 2013

…they can’t even give their wealth away without outsourcing it to Daddy Warbucks Government?  Not exactly my favorite person, “comedian” Bill Maher: There was a story recently about a Georgia man whose home was in foreclosure, savings running out. So he called 911, and when the responders arrived, he took them hostage. His demands? Getting […]

Palate Cleanser – Pump Gas News (Jay Leno)

by Skip May 12, 2013

I don’t watch Jay Leno too often lately – perhaps with this, I should.  Powerline (H/T) called this “delightful”.  I did find amusing and caught myself laughing at times and found it to be one of those “nice” types of videos for a 5 minute view of someone taken by surprise – and then “going […]
