Where Piers Morgan shows he doesn’t ‘get’ the US Constitution – again

by Skip September 12, 2013

Piers, Piers, Piers – you of all people should know the phrase containing “and dispel all doubt”.  A recent tweet on his favorite hobby horse (the Socialist / Statist mantra that citizens should be disarmed) shows a serious lack of understanding of the underlying philosophy of the US Constitution.  The Founders were careful with their […]

Data Point – Graduation rate

by Skip September 12, 2013

From Legal Insurrection: Only 16% of the 420K students in the CA State University system graduate within 4 years   What an indictment of the quality of the student in the system.  Or rather, is it a worse indictment of the formerly great CA K-12 system that has ill-prepared these students to actually perform well […]

A signature line denoting “I know better than you what you need”

by Skip September 12, 2013

Progressives – they are just so SMUG when they use one of the classic phrases that just screams “I an intellectually and morally superior than you – *I* will make the decision for you (moron, evil, uneducated, politically incorrect, or conservative) sub-human.  Here, take my hand and I will lead you to the Enlightened Utopia […]

McCain Accused of Treason and Rebuked by Local GOP Group

by Tom September 12, 2013

John McCain is having a bad month.  He was challenged and admonished by an American-Syrian woman and then tried to tell her he knew more about Syria than she did (after his two week stint over there). Now, the Maricopa County GOP is rebuking him for his support of Harry Reid in confirming a number of Obama […]

Steve, NH Dems will NEVAH publicly run on gun control – even Chuck Todd says so!

by Skip September 12, 2013

Democrats and Ray Buckley (NH Dem Chair)  here in the Live Free or Die state know that if they really ran their campaigns on the issues that they later sponsor legislation on, they’d be dead ducks.  Did they run on gay civil unions, or gay marriage, or Deputy Dawg’s gun control?  Nope – not a […]

Blogline of the Day – On Obama’s umpteenth “focus” on the economy

by Skip September 12, 2013

“He can focus, but he can’t focus “like a laser beam” because laser beams are coherent.” (H/T: Instapundit) And given the results of all those previous “foci”, is anyone convinced there will be different results than what we’ve seen to date?

Notable Quote: John Adams – On Property

by Steve MacDonald September 12, 2013

I could not help but notice how this is very-nearly, if not exactly, where we seem to be today. -Steve Perhaps, at first, prejudice, habit, shame or fear, principle or religion, would restrain the poor from attacking the rich, and the idle from usurping on the industrious; but the time would not be long before […]

What is More Likely To Intimidate Voters…

by Steve MacDonald September 12, 2013

What is more likely to intimidate voters and create vote suppression? Asking college students and campaign workers to complete an absentee ballot for their home state, or… …a cabal of OFA campaign workers, college students, Democrats, judges, and the AG’s office institutionalizing ballot box stuffing by out of state residents that makes your vote meaningless. […]

Democrats hate kids – no prob in making them cry over spilt (and pricey) milk

by Skip September 12, 2013

So much for “it’s for the children!” – instead, it is the age old Democrat ploy of “let’s use kids as political shields – again!”. This sorry political story actually illustrates TWO really bad problems: Democrats have no problem in threatening the well being of toddlers and young children to get their way Congress not […]

Democrat Terry McAuliffe is running for Governor of Virginia.  His position on the ‘second amendment’ is the standard, liberal, I support hunting and skeet shooting (which have nothing to do with the 2nd Am) but we need to do something about gun violence answer.  (And he is certain that the increase in law abiding gun […]

Foreign Policy: biker leathers vs Mom jeans

by Skip September 12, 2013

And we won’t bother to bring up the hunting vs the infamous “first pitch”… Yes, sometimes attitude WILL make a difference – and personal history.  It seems that being KGB when the going gets tough is better than being a Chicago Community Organizer. And as more than a few people have noted, Obama is not […]

Thumbnail image for Demokrat Diktionary: Voter Suppression

Voter Suppression: “Why Democrats did not win.” “The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing the will of the legislature and the people. This was voter suppression, pure and simple.”-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz The most efficeint […]
