Notable Quote – The Chinese version of the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving?

by Skip February 13, 2018

I always try to remind myself to post the story of the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving – made possible from the radical shift from Socialism (which is how the Colony started as an economic system) to Capitalism.  Seems like Capitalism, regardless of what the Chinese Communist Party may wish to have admitted, just always beats Socialism […]

Uh-oh, this is going to make the Treehuggers beserk!

by Skip February 13, 2018

Anti-car-ness is a constant theme over at Treehugger – rack’em and stack’em in a walkable city environment is their Utopia.  Need to move around?

Blogline of the Day – you can’t be FOR “Animal House” AND be against it at the same time.

by Skip February 13, 2018

Tim Matheson seems to be bemoaning the fact that Animal House couldn’t get made today, while embracing the mindset that would prevent Animal House from getting made today. That would be Otter – the “debonair” worldly frat boy seducing one gal / woman after another. Who knew that his blacken eye in the movie would give […]

Quick Thought (sorta): Has anyone else noticed how the Left is using “Nationalist” instead of another word?

by Skip February 13, 2018

Here’s the headline over at the SentinelSource (online presence of the Keene Sentinel, who we are currently beating in Alexa ratings): Two Virginia residents countersue white nationalist with Keene ties And that would be about Christopher Cantwell.  Now, I could care less about him; what is more important […]

How About a Shiny New Income Tax?

by Steve MacDonald February 13, 2018

Kimberly Morin joins me to discuss the latest effort by progressives to institute a broad-based taxing structure in state government. This time it’s buried in the feel-good idea of state-managed family medical leave insurance we don’t even need. Also Available on Google Play
