Well THAT must have been a shot to the Light Bringer’s self-esteem!

by Skip March 27, 2014

From the acclaim of hundreds of thousands in stadium settings to a lonely clap; I don’t think that I have EVER seen a US President give a speech or a joint presser only get a single person clapping.  Slowly.  And everyone else just wanting to get out of the area. I watched it several times […]

Notable Quote – Prof. Don Boudreaux

by Skip March 27, 2014

On Education (emphasis mine): Here’s a better idea: shift education responsibility to parents. Mr. Hettleman likely disagrees, given that in his op-ed he doesn’t once mention parents or families.  But it is mothers and fathers – not politicians – who have the greatest interest in the welfare of their children and who know their children […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip March 27, 2014

On Obamacare’s illustrating of Democrat philosophy (emphasis mine): This isn’t even a law anymore.  It is lawless.  That state where there is no defining framework, no boundary, and most importantly no way for any person, business, municipality, or state to know if and to what extent it is operating in or outside the law. This […]

“Brady Campaign to Honor Yee for Violence Prevention”

by Skip March 27, 2014

As Steve laid out here and here, we have an Uber-GunGrabber now in deep sneakers: Democrat Leland Yee has been indicted for gun running.  Yup, gun running – he may be against “gun violence” here in the US but two-facedly has no qualms about making a profit from “gun violence” somewhere else.  It is stunning, […]

Cold? You betcha!

by Skip March 27, 2014

Now, I wait all summer for February as I do prefer the colder weather.  However, I have had it – enough! . Here in NH, it has been downright all winter long – it got cold and stayed cold.  ALL winter time.  I can’t remember the last time that we had single digit temps in the […]

Data Point: What was promised, didn’t

by Skip March 27, 2014

The questions is: will the American Public hold him responsible for the riches promised but not delivered?  Who will be held accountable?  What was promised, enjoying a robust rip-roaring economy if we just followed Obama’s proscriptions and policies, have delivered less than half than “better future to come”. Remember, he and his accomplicies decided that […]

We’re used to the idea here in NH, so why not others?

by Skip March 27, 2014

 NH Constitution: [Art.] 10. [Right of Revolution.] Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means […]

It’s The Democrats IRS Now

by Ed Naile March 27, 2014

Republicans in Congress are used to letting the Democrats run things and as Democrats usually do they achieve the most political mileage they can out of positions of power. Take the IRS for instance. The Obama Regime has used this bureaucracy to keep any political opposition, in this case the TEA Party groups, from acquiring […]

When You Get What’s Coming To You…

by Steve MacDonald March 27, 2014
Thumbnail image for When You Get What’s Coming To You…

Aggressive driver in a big pick-em-up truck tailgates you, drives by and flips you the bird–and makes sure you see it (that’s in the video – you have been duly informed),  then as he speeds past you, loses control, and spins out across several lanes to land in the grassy median.   No injuries reported. Justice?  […]

More From the Hoplophobic Anti-Gun Lexicon

by Rick Olson March 27, 2014

“False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.” —Socrates The Gun debate. “Sensible Gun Policy.” “The public health crisis of gun violence.” “Assault Weapons” “Clips” “Magazines” “Bi-partisan.” The buzz words and phrases are awash…ignorance abounds. This is easy for me. My mind is made up. I’ve picked a side. […]

Do Maher’s Rants Rile Rottenberg?

Jim Geraghty has a great post loaded with links pointing to evidence on the topic-Democrats remarkable acceptance of their own hypocrisy.  Among those was this: Bill Maher can call Sarah Palin a “cu*t” and “tw*t” without losing any Democratic members of Congress as guests, and the Iowa Democratic party happily builds fundraisers around his performances.

Another Day, Another Corrupt Democrat

My kids watch a lot of anime and ‘those with power’ often have more than one form.  That means they have a final form.  For elected Democrats, that final form increasingly appears to be one where they are being led away in handcuffs. Mayor Patrick Cannon, a 47-year-old Democrat who rose from the city’s public […]

Chuck Schumer’s ‘Shield Law’ Makes Some “Journalists” a New Protected Class

by Steve MacDonald March 27, 2014
Thumbnail image for Chuck Schumer’s ‘Shield Law’ Makes Some “Journalists” a New Protected Class

Chuck Schumer’s shield law is meant to protect journalists from being dragged into court or intimidated by the legal system into giving up their confidential sources (among other things).   In reality, this is nothing more than the closing chapter of a ‘drama’ by which Democrats create statute that allows the government to define who gets […]
