Nashua Telegraph – doing Ray Buckley’s dirty work on Martha’s Motel?

by Skip August 4, 2013

After all, a deflection from wrong doing by using the “well, everybody does it” sounds more like a tweener trying to get out of a bad spot with Mom & Dad rather than from a professional journalistic entity?  Or, is this simply yet another manifestation of how journalism is downgrading itself?  After all, after paying […]

Data Point – Obamacare still not liked

by Skip August 4, 2013

I guess that’s why Obama is about to spend $750 million to convince is “Smile!  It’s GOOD for you!”.  From Powerline, this part of a poll on Obamacare, a commentary on “government shutdown” or Obamacare.  There’s nobody that has submitted legislation aligned with this question, it is still an interesting result from LIVs that wouldn’t […]

At least he’s honest about it – to him, it IS the Government’s money

by Skip August 4, 2013

Obama: “I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody“ One’s wealth is a measure of one’s labor (effort, motiviation, and skill) and time – the “price” society attaches to you economically (but not to your worth as a person – different measure).  Which brings up the great Libertarian question: who […]

I see nothing wrong in having the Political Class “eat their own dog food” first

by Skip August 4, 2013

“Eat our own dog food” – a term used in companies when they use their own products and services FIRST and thus, acting as their own beta (testing) customers.  After all, if it isn’t good enough for “us”, how can it be good enough for others? (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip August 4, 2013

On the on-going fight between Chris Christie and Rand Paul as a proxy for the widening rift between the Establishment Republicans and the more independent grassroots on Libertarianism in the Republican Party: “Let’s be clear what libertarianism is and what it isn’t: it is not anarchism, it has a role for government,” he said. “What […]

NOW, the Academy wants to have a conversation on “the course we wish to set as a nation” due to Obamacare? Ha!

by Skip August 4, 2013

Here is the lament that the academicians are now having over the downside of the law they almost all willing supported Obama who said this was in the mix.  They supported it as the “Obamacare sausage” was being made by the Democrats in the House, the Senate, and the White House (with not a few […]

by Steve MacDonald August 4, 2013

Might this kind of culture have something to do with it?

by Skip August 4, 2013

In the on going gun / anti-gun battles that have been going on since Aurora and Sandy Hook, much has been made of the “gun violence” and that the gun-grabbers think that all that is necessary is for all gun ownership to be severely curtailed if not outright stopped; no guns in civilian hands (which […]

Another look at Detroit

by Skip August 4, 2013

Grokster Susan put up a thought-provoking picture here: Indeed.  That motivated commenter, Radical Moderate, to send this in: Yeah, the desolation is rather similar.  Different times, different reasons.  Detroit was self-induced by decades of the Blue Social Model favored by Democrats.  Like Obamacare, Republicans have had nothing to do with this one.
