Blogline of the Day (Part 3) – the dumbest line of the day (I think)

by Skip April 3, 2017

Schumer: How about instead of nuking the filibuster, you let Democrats help choose Trump’s SCOTUS nominee? Yeah, the Republicans won the election to do THAT? If that happened, Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer would be the Senate Majority Leader in slightly less than two years. And neither Trump or Pence would be in the Oval […]

Notable Quote – Frank Furedi

by Skip April 3, 2017

When political commentators talk of the emergence of a post-truth world, they are really lamenting the end of an era when the truths promoted by the institutions of the state and media were rarely challenged. It’s a lament that’s been coming for a few years now. Each revolt of sections of the public against the […]

“You might have paid more attention to cell division in biology class had you seen this timelapse video from filmmaker Francis Chee (below). It shows the cell division of an egg from Rana temporaria (the common frog) in such astonishing detail that it looks like a digital effect. Starting with just four cells, it divides […]

Blogline of the Day (Part 2) – Republican “dedication”?

by Skip April 3, 2017

FORMER CONGRESSMAN TOM PERRIELLO: I lost my seat in Congress because I voted for Obamacare. I don’t regret that decision at all. House Republicans have yet to show similar commitment to their oft-stated principles. He was willing to sacrifice his political career for Socialism (for that is what Obamacare is – just like the VA). […]

Remember, ole’ US Senator Ted Kennedy restarted the politicization of SCOTUS

by Skip April 3, 2017

What we’re seeing today with the severe politicization of SCOTUS nominations (simply because Government has become so big and intrusive, the stakes for any nominee are YUGE!) does have a history, and one that Ted Kennedy (“The Swimmer”) way back gave a huge kickstart.  The history from a piece called “Ted Kennedy Killed the Judicial […]

NHPR has the “Facts” But Not the Story?

by Ed Naile April 3, 2017

Here is how NHPR starts out a voter fraud expose. “While President Trump and some of his allies perpetuate the (unverified and unsubstantiated) idea that out-of-state voters are being sent across the border en masse to throw New Hampshire elections, we were wondering: What can we actually know about the people who are showing up […]

Smile Democrats: NH Has Performed 40% More Background Checks Since 2014

by Steve MacDonald April 3, 2017

At every opportunity, New Hampshire Democrats and the anti-gun lobby sell their corrupted wares under a banner that increasingly reads “New Hampshire blah blah blah support background checks.” This marketing strategy is meant to paint with a broad brush the idea that a lot of us agree on the need for background checks for firearm […]

by Skip April 3, 2017

Funny, I do remember when Democrats were all up in arms that a State (Arizona) wanted to enforce Federal immigration law because the Obama Administration would not.  In fact, the  Obama Administration sued to make them stop. So I just don’t understand why the Democrats are all up in arms (again) to make the Federal […]
