Progressive and The Proper Role of Government – and your subservience to it.

by Skip January 30, 2017

Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive  philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our […]

BlogObservation of the Day – Loyalty

by Skip January 30, 2017

And there’s dang little of it around anymore – especially in politics: “People trust their leaders not only because of their competence but also because of their courage and commitment, and because they believe that their leaders will remain with their own in times of crisis rather than being helicoptered to the emergency exit. Paradoxically, […]

So, I’m walking out of Wal-Mart, my dog has this chew-bone habit you see, and I have to keep hooking him up, and there’s a vertical banner on a pole blowing in the breeze as I get to the sidewalk. It says something about Immunization, probably free Flu shots. I never really got past the […]

Democrats and Disarmament – the Truth about NH’s Pistol License Law

by Susan Olsen January 30, 2017

On January 10, 1923, NH’s more than 450,000 residents enjoyed equally the right to defend themselves, their families, their property and the state. By May of that year, 91,000 found themselves criminalized and statutorily stripped of those rights. But New Hampshire is the “Live Free or Die” state. How could that happen? In 1922, more […]

Another reason why Trump won – Liberal moral preening rejected

by Skip January 29, 2017

“if you want to be an obnoxious slob, you have a right to be one” Again, Progressives truly believe that they hold the moral high ground in politics and in having such, can be “bossy” (remember when that was a liberal pejorative?).  Looking down their noses, on their high horse, nose up in the air; […]

This was a double snorter for me.  Years ago I started to automate Chez Skip with X.10 stuff.  The more I played with it and studied it, the more I saw that if I was looking for reliable home control (at least at that time), it was time to wire up.  Frankly, I wasn’t THAT […]

by Scott Morales January 29, 2017

Of course, this is Maggie Hassan we’re talking about, so there is a really, really good chance she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.  Let’s give her the benefit of doubt and presume that she hasn’t read the dreadfully scary immigration Executive Order President Trump signed on Friday and that it’s not a reflection of […]

Do We Want a President Who Wins By…

by Steve MacDonald January 29, 2017

The New Hampshire Legislature is considering changes regarding who should decide which vaccines a child must have before attending public school.
