Don’t Forget…You Usually Can’t Call 911 Until After A Crime is being Committed.

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2013

If you call 911 before there is an “emergency,” or more to the point, in the absence of one, you can get in a lot of trouble.   You can even be charged with a crime.  (Even if McDonald’s is out of McNuggets.)  So 911 does not exist to secure your property or person.   911 does […]

NH Dems already killed off the DC Dem argument: “settled law!”

by Skip September 30, 2013

Here in NH, we have heard the NH Dems cry “SETTLED LAW!  SETTLED LAW!” when they thought that  Republicans were going to “re-legislate” the homosexual marriage law.  And a bunch of others.  And yet, when they took control this session, immediately they started in “re-legislating” in either watering down or removing laws that the Republican […]

Bureaucratic Child Abuse…?

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2013

The same bureaucratic group-think responsible for the long term suspensions of children playing with toy guns on private property, chewing pop-tarts, pointing pencils, playing make-believe (see list after the jump), is the same buraucratic mind-set that will be “manageing” your health care–and by extension your quality of life, your aging parents and grandparents lives, childrens […]

Clearer and clearer – Determined Weakness

by Skip September 29, 2013

In foreign policy, this means cozying up to our enemies while putting “the nose in the air” when dealing with our “former” allies.  Yes, the scare quotes are intentional. To be specific, if you were Israel, would this be all that comforting?  This from the This Week with [Clinton’s former wonder boy] George Stephy’s interview […]

Dollar Meltdown Getting Worse? Thank The Feminazis!

by Mike September 29, 2013

A bit harsh, eh, Mike? Here’s the thing. We all know that ‘Helicopter’ Ben Bernanke has an ‘accommodative’ stance toward money creation and interest rates, otherwise known as inflationary printing of dollars, AKA Stimulus or Quantitive Easing. The two primary contenders to replace Bernanke were Larry Summers, and Janet Yellen. Summers has been around government […]

Notable Quote — Neal B. Freeman

by Skip September 27, 2013

Obama “yakking” with Rouhani – why do I think this is merely a replay of Clinton & North Korea?

by Skip September 27, 2013

Iran – that’s the country that violated our sovereign territory, invaded our embassy, and held our hostages while Jimmy Carter was President.  Iran – the country that has been refining uranium in sufficient quality and quantity to build the bomb that could carry out their oft screamed promise to wipe Israel off the map.  The […]
