Kathy Griffin ‘Tops’ Herself

by Mike May 31, 2017

Desperately trying to make some point or other about Trump, Kathy Griffin, considered by a shrinking number of people to be a stand up comedienne, tweeted a picture of herself holding a decapitated head of Donald Trump.

by Steve MacDonald May 31, 2017

CNHT has released the results of Hew Hampshire’s participation in the Interstate Crosscheck Program, before, as they point out, the Secretary of State – who is probably crafting a carefully worded explanation or a means to dismiss the obvious.

Notable Quote – Prof. Walter E. Williams

by Skip May 30, 2017

…The entire premise behind population control is based on the faulty logic that humans are not valuable resources. The fact of business is that humans are what the late Julian L. Simon called the ultimate resource. That fact becomes apparent by pondering this question: Why is it that Gen. George Washington did not have cellphones […]

A question for all ‘Grok readers: Freedom to do or requiring Permission

by Skip May 30, 2017

And your answer should be in the context of “Land of the Free”: Should law have as a fundamental organizing principle that persons have a general right to embark on enterprises not specifically prohibited, or that a wide range of activities should require advance permission by official gatekeepers? Sadly, I think that with all of […]

Notable Quote – Who knew two little words meant so much?

by Skip May 30, 2017

Is it possible that the History of the 20th Century can be explained by simple reference to a change in prepositions?  That is the gist of the epiphany that struck me while watching David M. Kennedy on Booknotes (C-SPAN).  He and Brian Lamb were discussing the fact that this book is part of the Oxford […]

Do Democrat Women Really Believe the Men in the NH Legislature Are “Misogynistic?

by Susan Olsen May 30, 2017

I just sent this email to all NH state representatives: This Thursday [June 1], a number of Democrat women – and perhaps some men – intend to protest what they aver is widespread and malevolent “misogyny” in the NH legislature. Apparently, these women don’t read books – even bad ones – so one presumes it […]

Memorial Day – Respect

by Skip May 29, 2017

I shed a tear There is a bond (even if perceived as a rivalry) between those that have served in our military that I, and most of us, will never share.  Looking back, I wish I had to better understand that rivalry, and the respect that is so highly intertwined with it. Brothers in arms […]

When govt, and the money and its power it wields, becomes too big…

by Skip May 29, 2017

“We have always known that eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. It’s worse now, because capture of government is so much more important than it once was. There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long […]

Without the knowledge, there is no respect for Memorial Day I’ve been putting up these kinds of videos for years – kids, young adults, that known little to nothing of our country’s history or of American Exceptionalism.  Sure, we have had wars in our past – we are a country born of war.  You’d think […]

Debunking “NOAA’s” Modern Global Flood Myth

by Steve MacDonald May 29, 2017

Democrat Socialists have created the Climate Cult complete with a cataclysmic global flood myth. Their goal is to take control of your energy, health, money, and property, (making the government and right sort of experts your temporal deity), in exchange for saving you from yourself and the promised flood. Tony Heller from Real Climate Science […]

Would Democrat Jeff Woodburn Consider Abortion Rights for Bears?

by Steve MacDonald May 28, 2017

Democrat Jeff Woodburn is upset about Governor Sununu’s plea to save the family of bears in Hopkinton. Conservation officers had planned to shoot them, but now they’ll trap them and relocate them.

Mizzou Cutting 400 More Jobs, Closing Residence Halls, As Enrollment Plummets

by Steve MacDonald May 28, 2017

I’ve been following the demise of Mizzou for a while now. What we need to remember, what every college administration and faculty must understand, is that this happened because of protests started by a poop-swastika nobody ever actually saw. It is the result of a h**t storm of little monsters nurtured and validated by the […]

Data Point – I coulda told you that!

by Skip May 27, 2017

Gallup interviewed 1,011 U.S. residents aged 18 or older on May 3-7 and asked them two questions about the moral state of the nation. The first question: “How would you rate the overall state of moral values in this country today—as excellent, good, only fair, or poor.” Most think it’s pretty crappy.  Gosh, I wonder […]

Education: anti-parents

by Skip May 27, 2017

George Will read US Sen. Ben Sasse’s new book.  A slice: In the long-running rivalry between the realist and romantic views of human nature, Sasse is firmly with the former. This aligns him against those who believe that schooling should be “a substitute for parents” as life’s “defining formative institution.” In the progressive view of […]

Well, we certainly know that the NH Association of Chiefs of Police (don’t they look so grand?) are on the side of civilian disarmament.  The dirty little secret is that even with all of the training that the Left keeps jamming down our throats, sometimes they aren’t that much better than civilians.  Or can be […]

We have the worst Political Class ever. Fortunately, they’re concentrated in California

by Skip May 26, 2017

I have long railed against the Administrative State with laws that have been passed by both the Feds and State governments that unaccountable bureaucrats can make regulations that have the force of law without going through the Legislative process.  This is a failure twice over: By bureaucrats that don’t seem to keep both the written […]
