Did uber-Obama confident put a pin into the Progressive ballon and made it go “Pop!”?

by Skip May 15, 2013

I know I keep harping on this but one of the main tenets of Progressivism is to bring about the Administrative State – a place in time where expert technocrats “guide” the rest of us through our lives.  These are unelected, unaccountable, and most likely, unapproachable bureaucrats working in a centralized government situation sitting down […]

by Steve MacDonald May 15, 2013

I heard that the Londonderry New Hampshire Town Democrats sent US Senator Kelly Ayotte a  mother’s day card.  It was a drawing of the kids murdered at Newtown, with the words ‘Happy Mothers Day.’  Someone forwarded it to me in an email. Newtown was tragic, but sending the Senator a card like that was, well….I’m […]

US News.com Says Jeanne Shaheen Pressured IRS

by Steve MacDonald May 15, 2013

Not exactly a bastion of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, US News connects the dots between public rhetoric and policy efforts by Democrat Senators that specifically mention right wing groups, with the ongoing partisan actions taken by the IRS against conservative and TEA party groups. From “Senate Democrats pushed for Tea party snooping before criticizing it…” […]

Boo Hoo Hamster Can Finally Write Something about the DOJ – AP Story

by Steve MacDonald May 15, 2013

Last night Skip observed that the progressive mouthpiece for the Democrat blogosphere in New Hampshire (Bleu Hampshire) had been awfully quiet given all the newsy tid-bits peppering the interwebs.  Nothing to report on Benghazi, The IRS, HHS, DOJ seizing AP phone records, dead Americans, failed Middle East policy…nothing. But there is good news. Blue Hamster has leave to react […]

“Can’t Keep Up…” – You and me both Steve

by Scott Morales May 15, 2013

As Steve alluded to yesterday, the beast is so swollen, engorged on coercive bureaucratic fat, that it finally burst, raining juicy Big Gov abuse stories all over the land.  Though the forecast predicted the fallout,  I didn’t think so many would hit in one week. (The cynical side of me thinks that many of these […]
