My stance used to be that anyone should be able to give as much as they want to any political group or candidate.  They earned the money – and the First Amendment means ESPECIALLY that political speech should be free from government inteference.   Yet, we have seen politicians, both at the national level and here […]

by Skip December 5, 2013

“Food stamp spending is at historic highs—it has doubled twice since 2000. Now some on Capitol Hill say the House is trying to make major cuts to the program, but they’re really making some much-needed policy reforms that would achieve modest savings. …The House’s savings come from closing loopholes and ending policies that are currently […]

Harrell Kirstein – an Object Lesson in INconsistency

by Skip December 5, 2013

Exactly what I have been writing about one lesson that Republicans have to learn: being consistent.  It really isn’t that hard to grasp, really – all it takes is the ability to stick to your Principles.  Do that, and it wipes the political table clean of mistakes (and often keeps you from making future ones).  […]

The professional union driven “strikes” being fomented by professional jack-asses around the nation are the culmination of several layers of manufactured failure and outrage.  First, the Democrats have been ruining the economy and expanding the part-time employment culture–that’s planned failure.  And now that these people feel trapped (as intended) the unions are organizing them to […]

An apt comparison? Then and now

by Skip December 5, 2013

First they came for…. And never believe that just because we have “America” in our name doesn’t mean it can’t happen here.  If you think about it, there is MORE surveillance now in contemporary USA than was ever, EVER possible back in 1938.  We think about the FBI, DEA, CIA, NSA, and the IRS needed […]

As Democrats in the US Senate, including NH’s Jeanne Shaheen,  work to deny states the right to decide things about abortion it occurs to me to take a slightly different tack on the issue.
