by Steve MacDonald June 23, 2017

Notable Quote – Cassy Fiano

by Skip June 23, 2017

Liberals typically aren’t willing to do anything to lift people out of poverty and give them opportunities to improve their lives. They want to keep people in poverty right where they are, and they do so by making them reliant on the government for everything. They also insist that government must provide everything for people […]

The “Surprise!”Karen Handel Win Looks A Lot Like Another Recent Election

by Steve MacDonald June 22, 2017

They don’t always, like in small town New Hampshire for a relatively meaningless state House race, but they do turn out […]

The Truth About When Life Begins

by Steve MacDonald June 21, 2017

Some Democrats could care less about when an abortion happens. They’re convinced that it is not “alive” nor is it “a life” until it registers and votes Democrat. Then there are the Americans who avoid the subject, approach it unwillingly, or concede some level of support for the practice (meaningfully or just to avoid conflict) who […]

Notable Quote – Prof. Thomas Sowell

by Skip June 21, 2017

“Liberals are for helping people who are disadvantaged, while I think conservatives want to stop people from being disadvantaged,” he explained. “In other words, liberals want to help the poor while they’re poor, but really the biggest benefit is to stop them from being poor, and that’s something they [liberals] have little interest in.” -Prof. […]

by Mike June 21, 2017

Notable Quote – John Chamberlain

by Skip June 20, 2017

When contrasted with a dream of perfection, capitalism was manifestly at a disadvantage. But with the advent of socialist economies (Communist Russia, China) and the semisocialist, or “mixed,” systems of Scandinavia, Britain, and New Deal America (to say nothing of the “national” socialisms of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy), capitalism no longer requires apologists. Under […]

Here’s the question that never gets asked: “When is enough, enough?”  The corollary is “With constant wage and benefit increases when is high, high enough?  At what point do you say ‘Enough!’?”  I recently posted on how Illinois’s budget crisis is so bad that Powerball will no longer let Illinois participate.  Much of the budget […]

On Paris The NH Democrat Delegation Sides With Big Oil

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2017

The Left’s ‘Identity Politics’ Has Them Backed Into A Corner

by Kimberly Morin June 18, 2017

The left always likes to believe they are super smart but it seems odd that they still haven’t figured out why they lost the last election, not just at the federal level but across the country at the state level as well. Rather than reflect on why they lost, they are doubling-down and doing the […]

From the “Nothing Democrats Promise Comes True” File: Seattle Gun Tax Failures

by Steve MacDonald June 17, 2017

From Legal Insurrection: After Seattle’s Gun Tax: Lost Jobs, Little Revenue, More Violent Crime. Is anyone who is not a liberal surprised?

What Communist Doesn’t Support Violence?

by Ed Naile June 16, 2017

It is silly to argue that Socialist Revolutionary Bernie Sanders does not promote hatred and violence. He is merely biding his time and getting away with as much as he can. Bernie is a life-long New York leftist who hasn’t even adopted the English language yet. He still spouts an extra-thick Bronx dialect. Nothing has […]

Increased Sea Ice Now Caused by ‘Climate Change’

by Steve MacDonald June 15, 2017

Remember when the Climate Cult said our children would never see snow in New Hampshire because of Global Warming but the snow wouldn’t cooperate, so it was decided that all that snow was caused by Global Warming?
