So, what will the NFL say in defense of taking a knee in “unity” with Colin

by Skip September 30, 2017

 Colin Kaepernick donated $25,000 to group named after convicted cop killer and former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur who broke out of jail and fled to Cuba. So Colin so hates the police that he affirms the killer of an innocent policeman?  Is this the “unity” that the NFL and its owners, coaches, and […]

Blogline of the Day – this is what happens when you can’t do math

by Skip September 30, 2017

Or even simple arithmetic baffles you.  Before you read the line, remember that the top 1% pay almost 39% of income taxes. NEW YORK TIMES FINDS A FLAW IN TRUMP’S TAX-REFORM PLAN: “The plan would not benefit lower-income households that do not pay federal income taxes.” Sigh.  Well, given that the NYT has been running a […]

So much for the Left’s vaunted ideal of “inclusiveness”, eh?

by Skip September 30, 2017

That’s all we seem to hear about from Progressives that they want and desire a more “inclusive” society. As you can see, at least on this campus, “inclusive” really means exclusive – we will include anyone that is just like us but exclude “The Others”.  Once again, we see the hypocrisy of the Left and […]

The Socialist Big Lie – “incrementalling” itself all over the US

by Skip September 30, 2017

In a post over at The American Thinker labeled The Free Lunch Slide into Socialism, we see the Great Lie of proto-Socialism once again: New York City’s Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina recently announced the new “Free School Lunch for All” for the big Apple’s public schools. This means that the entire public-school population, some 1.1 million students, […]

Remember Those ‘Climate Mayors’ Who Swore to Uphold the Paris Agreement?

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2017

Earlier this year a group of mayors clung together in the name of the Paris Climate Accord. They insisted, wrongly, that the “treaty” was necessary and they intended to take action locally to support its goals. Some 379 municipal leaders signed on to Climate Mayors.org, which was all most of them ever intended. As a group, they […]

The NFL’s Kneel-a-Palooza Isn’t What They Think It Is and They Don’t Even Know It

by Steve MacDonald September 29, 2017

The NFL’s Kneel-a-palooza is beginning to grate on my nerves. Team owners and players think they are doing something meaningful, but they’ve been shepherded into advocating a false-narrative that feeds the progressive mission to kneecap the culture, and most of them don’t even know it. Much like the hands-up-don’t-shoot meme, (which was a complete fabrication […]

Chuck Todd: Towering Constitutional Ignoramus

by Scott Morales September 29, 2017

This is what you get when you hire a Democrat operative to be a “news” anchor: a smug, self-righteous ignoramus. Here he is haughtily sneering at the next Alabama Senator Roy Moore by stating that, “He doesn’t appear to believe in the Constitution as it’s written.” What did Roy Moore say to cause Chuck make […]

Data Point – kinda puts to bed the lie that Planned Parenthood is “necessary” for “women’s healthcare”

by Skip September 28, 2017

And I put that in quotes because it is a euphemism for “kill that unborn baby” because it sucks come voting time.  At The Blaze, I ran across this: From a Guttmacher Institute study earlier this year: The abortion rate has fallen to its lowest rate since Roe v. Wade. In 2014, there were 14.6 abortions per […]

Notable Quote – Jonathan Adler

by Skip September 28, 2017

“However well-intentioned or justified a given protest may be, when political protests occur during the national anthem, many Americans see a defacement of something sacred — and this message completely overshadows the intended content of the protests. As experienced and understood by many, the protesters were not merely seeking to advance their own cause; they […]

Data Point – 2017 Q2 final GDP result

by Skip September 28, 2017

“With just two days left until the end of the third quarter, what happened in Q2 will hardly provoke a market reaction, which is why when the BEA announced that the third and final Q2 GDP print was revised from 3.0% to 3.1%, (or specifically from 3.049% to 3.06%) it hardly inspired a move in […]

Portsmouth Property Re-valuation Meeting Video – Not Available?

by Steve MacDonald September 28, 2017

The City of Portsmouth has been ruffling feathers over a proposed property re-valuation. “I can see it coming,” Whitehouse said Monday. “Come October or the last part of September when they set the tax rate, then I’ll know how bad things will be. I keep cutting and cutting, but I’m all by myself and I’m […]

Challenging “Banned Books Week”

by Ellen Kolb September 27, 2017

It’s “Banned Books Week.” Pardon my groan. I rant about this every year. No end in sight, alas. The folks behind Banned Books Week – a coalition of the American Library Association and allied groups – lost all credibility with me years ago when they conflated “banned” and “challenged,” especially when the challenge is to […]

by Steve MacDonald September 27, 2017

Not Suprised. Nearly two-thirds of Americans say NFL players should stand and be respectful during the playing of the national anthem, according to a survey released on Monday. A survey by Remington Research Group found that 64 percent of voters agree with President Trump and want players to stand for the anthem. The survey also found that […]

I love how I’m referred to as a political foe instead of an election volunteer; but maybe that’s her defense.  Since her attorney is the big cheese for the NH Democrat Party, I’m sure he has a plan.

by Steve MacDonald September 27, 2017

Hillary Clinton’s Top Aid’s Husband is going to Federal Prison for sexting with a minor. Prosecutors said Weiner knew that the girl was a minor and nonetheless asked her to engage in explicit conduct, which is a crime. They asked for a sentence between 21 and 27 months, arguing that Weiner’s misdeeds were “serious and […]

Patriot fans tell the Patriot players who took a knee what they think of them

by Skip September 26, 2017

Boston is a patriotic place – this is the area of the country where the “Shot heard ’round the world” was fired when the British Redcoats were sent to disarm the colonials.  A ragtag militia of 70 odd ordinary male citizens stood up to a mass of 700 British regulars – the finest army in […]
