Humor: Second Amendment style

by Skip October 25, 2014

Folks like Kimberly Edson (or Zandra Rice-Hawkins, for that matter) would find absolutely no humor in this whatsoever.  I thought it amusing: You may have heard on the news about a Southern California man who was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and allegedly had 100,000 rounds of […]

Individualist vs Collectivist mentality: the Leave Me Alone Coalition vs “You WILL be forced together”

by Skip October 25, 2014

As in “we’re all in this together”.  Voluntarily being part of a group is one thing if it is voluntary but Progressives / Socialists / Collectivists brook no dissent – you WILL be made to be all in (with them in charge).  This article at Bearing Arms lays out the contradiction that is tearing apart the American polity […]

Notable Quote – Patrick Henry

by Skip October 25, 2014

Which means Transparency – something that is in short supply from the Obama Administration.  But as the Groksters have found out personally here in little NH, it is oft not to be found here either.  Obfuscation, delay, intolerance for NH Citizenry – and an attitude of “who are you to ASK ME to justify Govt […]

2014 Senatorial campaign – why other states will determine the US Senate majority, not NH

by Skip October 25, 2014

I bookmarked this a few days ago (a long time in politics, but still applicable) – see where NH is? The magic number is six….we are 14th above.  Some newer polls are showing either a close or dead even race and one showed Brown with a slim lead.  Will that latter condition remain? I remain […]

Dueling Headlines – Obama Admin’s Public Masters still trying to shove its agenda down our throats

by Skip October 25, 2014

Here’s what “our betters” want us to believe: EPA chief: Public tired of debating climate change Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy said Friday that the public does not want more “debate or discussion” about climate change, but government action.  “First, people overwhelmingly consider climate change to be a problem—and they want action, not […]

Epic Acts of Political Cowardice – Jeanne Shaheen, proving that in the Collective, no one is at fault

by Skip October 25, 2014

for ANYTHING at ANYTIME on ANY ISSUE: “There were 60 of us!” I missed this line when I listened to the debate on WBIN / NH1 between US Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Scott Brown.  Never, ever, ever will Progressives EVER take responsibility (er, shouldn’t THAT be a clue to the hollowness of their philosophy?) for failing programs.  […]

Epic Acts of Political Cowardice – Obamacare Medicaid Expansion where NH Senate Republicans blaming other NH Senate Republicans.

by Skip October 25, 2014

I was not in my usual seat at GrokTALK! this morning so I’m listening to it here on iHeart radio and just after the start of the show (7:34), Steve says something I need to quickly expand upon: Keep in mind that their argument was that they didn’t have a choice that there were Republicans […]

Bill Whittle: a true definition of the 2nd Amendment (better than Progressives’ simplistic “guns kill!”)

by Skip October 25, 2014

That’s what we hear from Progressives – guns kill!  Thus, no one should have them.  Or “reasonable gun laws” (better translated “reasonable is what we say it is, which is no one should have them”).  No matter what you hear from the anti-Constitutional Progressives, Liberals, Socialists, Pacifists, and those that emote and not think, the […]

“but whether it works” – Part “TV Trucks in Kabul” – Obama Federal Govt “working”?

by Skip October 25, 2014

“The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.”            – President Barack Obama, Inauguration, 1/20/09 Works means it accomplished something worthwhile with little waste and […]

CDC – a perfect example of an expanding bureaucracy that forgets how to do its main mission

by Skip October 25, 2014

Every bureaucracy wishes to do more and more – and public sector ones are no different.  As we have seen with the Ebola scare, the CDC is a prime example of  a Govt bureau that pretty much worked itself out of a job (when is the last time we had a real massive GERM / MICROBE […]

Lame questions, better answers

by Skip October 25, 2014

I guess Pindell is having an off week – scanning through his questions of the week, I was rather disappointed with the offerings.  Oh well, c’est la – go with what’s there, laying on the street. Will Republicans come home to Scott Brown in the final week or sit on their hands? Oh sure: Will […]

Notable Quote – Rob Stein

by Susan Olsen October 25, 2014

Kinda like New Hampshire, only bigger. “The reason it is so important to control government is because government is the source of enormous power,” Stein continued. “One president in this country, when he or she takes office, appoints…5,000 people to run a bureaucracy, nonmilitary nonpostal service of 2 million people, who hire 10 million outside […]
