Baltimore Orioles ticket sales if they were Obamacare

by Skip October 31, 2013

Using Sarbanes’s baseball analogy, the situation facing these nearly 1.4 million health-insurance refugees would be akin to a loyal aficionado receiving the following letter from the Baltimore Orioles: October 30, 2013 Dear Orioles fan: It is our duty to inform you that you no longer will be able to sit in the bleachers at Camden […]

This “social justice” idiocy is supposed to promote “unit cohesion” – Not? Oh, that IS the point.

by Skip October 31, 2013

You know, this whole “social justice” thing is just Cultural Marxism wrapped up in Political Correctness. This is meant to do one thing and one thing only – install guilt into a vast majority of people have done nothing wrong. Sure, the colleges are full of this crap – seemingly, they can’t turn out decent […]

Data Point: On Halloween night, these seems appropriate

by Skip October 31, 2013

From Rasmussen: 64% of Likely U.S. Voters now view the federal government unfavorably, with 34% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it. I am not surprised at all.  The only folks who seem to like it are those that either run it (Political Class), rent-seek from it (Crony Capitalism), or are dependent on it […]

Hmm, I keep seeing this sentiment more often…

by Skip October 31, 2013

From the Daily Brief – a prior military gal turned writer and freelancer (to pay the bills).  She’s not a constant blogger and there’s a lot she puts out that I’ll read and go “oh” but this is the first time in a while enough to link and post – because it is indicative of […]

You had the chance to stop it – and you chickened. I’m supposed to believe you now?

by Skip October 31, 2013

“VaporVotes“ After voting 40 times to repeal Obamacare in the US House, why should I trust the DC Establish Republicans?  Yeah, I get it – for the last 3 years I’ve listened to “we’re gonna repeal it!”.  First couple of times, rah-rah!…and then snoresville.  There comes a time when credulity just breaks down from sheer […]

DHHS Using Healthcare.gov To Register Voters

by Steve MacDonald October 31, 2013
Thumbnail image for DHHS Using Healthcare.gov To Register Voters

I tweeted this last week, and may have linked it on facebook, but it needs more attention than that. If you manage to get through the process of signing up at healthcare.gov, the site gives you the opportunity to register to vote.   Why? Congressional House Rep Louie Gohmert, and Rep Issa from Oversight–whose letter Gohmert […]

If You LIKE Your NH Voter Fraud – You Can KEEP IT

by Ed Naile October 31, 2013

How’s that for a sales pitch! Everyone will be happy. “If you LIKE your NH voter fraud – you can KEEP it!” I just want to get along with everybody. Most progressives like voter fraud because it primarily helps them and their constituents – who have no qualms about using it to gain an advantage – […]

How many times do we have to say it?  There is just so much our Democrat Friends ‘Believe’ that just isn’t so.   And we can add drilling our way to lower gas prices to the list.  (I can’t believe we even have to make the case that increasing the supply of anything can and typically […]

I Am A Gun Owner…entry #1

by Susan Olsen October 31, 2013

A while back, the good folks over at The Truth About Guns (TTAG) asked their readers to submit pictures and a note telling a little bit about themselves.  The response was overwhelming, so much so that the photo gallery was continued onto a facebook page. We thought it was a wonderful idea to put stories […]

Lacking Facts Progressives Resort to Made-up False Charges

by Don October 31, 2013

The recourse of people without facts or principles is to make false charges, often calling opponents liars and users of hate speech.  An example is Denise Doyle’s letter of October 29, 2013 in the Laconia Daily Sun. (Alternate link) Ms. Doyle’s letter was published just after NBC documented (and Marilyn Tavenner, the head of federal […]

Notable Quote: Father Ray Leonard

by Skip October 30, 2013

From a Catholic priest that ministered to Tibetan people in the Peoples’ Republic of China, then returned to be a chaplain to our military: “We expected the Communist Party to interfere and block religious services. They were very clear that they despised religion and they would do that. There was no question. But the great […]

Progressivism: a perfect example of its Selfishness

by Skip October 30, 2013

Progressives are nothing but Socialists, and Socialism is nothing more than an exercise in greedy enviousness: what can I get for nothing?  And how can I get more from Government – after all, in a Socialist State, that’s “from whom all blessings flow”.   And since Government is responsible for handing out “the spoils”, it […]

Sacrifice or begging

by Skip October 30, 2013

“I was willing to give my all” vs “I want all of your’s”.  “Willingness to do Hard, Harrowing Work” vs “Give it to me” “Be careful for what you wish fore” – indeed, with such an entitlement mentality, Government WILL give it to you.  Just not how you think it will

The same administration that has lied about so much, so publicly, so often, and in such grand fashion, about so many things, defending them viciously, now expect us to believe that the explanation for the lies they told about ObamaCare, should themselves be believed? Should we clear our schedules six months down the road for […]

From the Washington Examiner, with some slight editing on my part, to make a point. After the passage of Obamacare, (T)he president has repeatedly insisted that if any individual likes their health care plan (freedom), they could “keep it.” (White House Press Secretary Jay) Carney on Tuesday added a crucial caveat to that promise, saying […]
