Catching up Part 3 – Oxfam hates rich people

by Skip October 22, 2017

But loves Government. Once again, it’s all about “inequality” and how to “fix it – at Davos.  Think about inequality at the annual “aren’t we rich and Elite” party they throw for themselves?  The AP decided to weigh in on this report from Oxfam (1/16/17): Sidenote: Oxfam – weren’t they the folks that were just […]

Catching up Part 2 – Hey, trust Govt because it does SO much for us!

by Skip October 22, 2017

Back on Jan 7, Katharine Gregg wrote an Op-Ed in the Concord Monitor that definitely showed that she has forgotten how Trust works – that it takes a long time to build up Trust but it has to be Consistent in order to maintain that level of Trust. However, she just wants “that we try […]

Catching up Part 1 – Hating Free Markets

by Skip October 22, 2017

Well, I am now, as they say, between opportunities.  So my time is going to be a bit more flexible.  Fortunately, I have a TON of bookmarks on stuff that I marked “use this” that I never got around to posting (perhaps a couple of years worth). Sorta like “reverse prepping” – couldn’t stockpile my […]

Government enforced “safety” – the antithesis Freedom?

by Skip October 22, 2017

One example (emphasis mine): According to the Los Angeles Times, Newsom said the ban will “help prevent the occurrence of high-fatality gun massacres, and … [will] reduce the bloodshed when these tragedies occur.” Note that Newsom’s claim contains an admission that the ban will not stop “high-fatality” attacks altogether. Rather, it is yet another in a long […]

“Educated liberals overuse the term ‘racist.’” I’ll add in homophobe and…

by Skip October 22, 2017

…and xenophobe and (reformatted, emphasis mine)… No one can fail to be amazed by the courage of the people who protested segregation and bigotry in the 1950s and 1960s. Those who endured physical injury justifiably stick in our minds the most. Today’s educated liberals lack the courage they admire in their forebears, at a time […]

Consensus Remains Elusive

by Steve MacDonald October 22, 2017

 “Consensus” is a political idea which is just one of many reasons not trust the climate cult. A concept that even as a political one is difficult. So we should not be surprised to see a group of sixty-plus scientists with climate backgrounds asking the EPA to revisit it’s 2009 GHG Endangerment Finding. We each are convinced that […]

Data Point – 2017 Federal Spending and Taxes

by Skip October 22, 2017

We don’t have a revenue problem – we have a spending problem that gives us these huge annual deficits leading to a $20 Trillion national debt (reformatted, emphasis mine). Real federal spending in fiscal 2017, which ended on Sept. 30, was higher than in any year in the history of the United States other than […]

World Economy explained with two cows – Part 3 Fascism

by Skip October 22, 2017

Actually, Fascism realized that, unlike Socialism, one can have the same outcome as Socialism / Communism.  The State didn’t need to own the sources of Production to control them – just an overarching set of laws and regulations that the owners of those means of production that result in effective control without being the legal […]

Notable Quote – Michael Barone

by Skip October 21, 2017

The second of Trump’s actions was his Oct. 12 statement that he would suspend cost-sharing reduction payments to health insurance companies. The Obama administration had been making CSR payments since 2014 even though Obamacare’s Section 1401 does not appropriate the money for the payments authorized in Section 1402. This was blatantly unconstitutional. “No Money shall […]

They only wanted to ban the bump stock, they said…..

by Skip October 21, 2017

Hardly.  They never stop at just one thing.  Once again, the Democrats in Congress aren’t just willing to go after just one aspect of their civilian disarmament jihad against the Second Amendment.  Here’s a couple more “aren’t going any furthers”: H.R.3984 – Rep. Schiff, Adam B. [D-CA-28] (Introduced 10/05/2017) Summary: To repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms […]

World Economy explained with two cows – Part 2 Socialism

by Skip October 21, 2017

UPDATE: Upon reflection, this graphic is wrong.  The second line should actually read “You are FORCED to give one to your neighbour.  No, that’s still not right. Try this: The Government TAKES one of your cows and gives it to your neighbor because: INEQUALITY!!!!”.  Just like the Democrats keep lecturing us – you voluntarily giving […]

Some Fun at Democrat Expense

by Steve MacDonald October 20, 2017

Kurt Schlichter has some fun at Democrat expense over at TownHall.com. Here’s snippet. He then turned it over to 105-year-old Nancy Pelosi, who asked, “Where am I?” After [Chuck] Schumer whispered in her ear, she began: “With the economy booming, the stock market setting records, and America defeating ISIS, things have never been worse. That’s […]

DISQUS Doodlings – Ma’am, didn’t you forget to answer the Primary Question?

by Skip October 20, 2017

Yeah, I know – I’ve been spending perhaps a bit too much time over at a couple of Lefty sites lately.  Once again, yet another defense against deportation that forgets to bring up the MOST important question / answer.  It’s almost as if this ACLU lawyer (“Jeanne Hruska is policy director for ACLU-NH”.) did it […]

Over at the Concord Monitor is a piece on House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff’s extra-rules attempt to put in a new bill to ban “bump stocks” AFTER the cutoff date (Sept. 22) for doing so had passed. By rights, he shouldn’t have bothered – after all, both Republicans and Democrats in the House agreed to that […]

NH Committee Approves Waiver Requesting Work Requirement for Expanded Medicaid in NH

by Steve MacDonald October 20, 2017

New Hampshire’s Joint Legislative Fiscal Committee is getting a good deal of attention for rubber-stamping a state HHS rule that puts taxpayers on the hook for Sex reassignment surgery. Medicaid is not exactly known for its generous coverage, so I’m not sure who in the sexual reassignment industry is going to line up to that shallow trough, but I guess […]

Pro Athletes could be Constructive, Not Counterproductive and Disrespectful

by Don October 20, 2017

Professional athletes could significantly help solve the problems that they complain about; unfortunately their disrespectful protests of our country are counter-productive, self-destructive, and alienate people who support and applaud constructive efforts to help America’s less fortunate. The saddest thing is that the athletes’ ill-considered protests may encourage more disobedience of and fights with police which […]

Government Health Care, the Ultimate Fat Shamer

Michael Moore spit takes caramelly nuggets; spurting Fiddle Faddle over his engorged belly and across the room landing on a landscape of crumpled plastic bags, smashed soda cans, and empty tubes of Cheese Whiz. A white powdery mini donut slips from the sugary pasty agape mouth of Amy Schumer to it’s doom on the white […]

“Catastrophic” Sea Level Rise Takes a Holiday

by Steve MacDonald October 20, 2017

Global interglacial sea level rise has been pretty consistent over the centuries at a few millimeters per year. This trend has been ignored as rent-seekers and political opportunists jokey for the lead role in “Scare taxpayers out of their money part one-million-something; Climate Doom!” And while climate is way down on most people’s lists of priorities the […]

Who Needs Permission?

by Ellen Kolb October 19, 2017

The Joint Legislative Committee on Legislative Rules voted today to accept a New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Medicaid rule change, providing coverage for gender-altering procedures. Substance of the rule aside, what amazes me is the process by which it came about. The administrative side of government is the one I know […]

Obligatorily “Don’t Wear costumes based on other cultures” Post

by Steve MacDonald October 18, 2017

Consider yourself warned. “Halloween costumes that are based on ethnic, racial, religious, gender, ability, and other cultural stereotypes are hurtful and reduce people’s identities into caricatures,” the university elaborates, noting that “intent may be far different than the impact,” and that “one night of fun” can turn into a “stigma that others wear for life.” […]

Hmm, interesting speculation: “Barack Obama Funded North Korea’s Nuclear Weapons Program”

by Skip October 18, 2017

That’s the headline over at DCWhispers and they make a point worth considering, given how chummy the two regimes have been in the past. The operative question is this How did North Korea’s Nuclear Tech Get So Good So Fast? (Reformatted, emphasis mine): $33.6 BILLION. That is the amount then-President Barack Obama had shipped under cover […]
