Hemingway 2A Rally – what’s a 2nd Amendment rally w/out some machine gun shooting!

by Skip August 21, 2014

Being really under the weather on Sat means I didn’t get as much video as I should have – and certainly not enough of the automatic firearms. Two of the popular ones were the “Ma Deuce” (.50 cal. heavy machine gun – the Youngest’s favorite weapon while deployed to Afghanistan) and the 1919 (.30 cal machi1ne […]

Just like his voting record – Senator Boutin gets worse as the night goes on – Part 5

by Kimberly Morin August 19, 2014

As the night goes on Senator  Boutin only gets worse, to the point the bartender intervenes as he curses at the patrons on the other side of the bar.  Even telling the bartender to “F*ck Off” and calling one guy a “F*cking A$$hole.”  It’s hard to believe you’re watching a sitting New Hampshire State Senator […]

Thumbnail image for Montana Senate Race – Democrats Can Kiss That Seat Goodbye…

Long Story Short, Max Baucus was a Democrat albatross shipped off to China as an ambassador (to save some face).  His sterling ‘conservative Democrat’ replacement was busted for having plagiarized the majority of his Army War College thesis.  He bailed. Left to decide at the Montana Democrat Party State Convention,  the curdled cream of Montana’s […]

GIGO Gecko, a new commenter, decided to challenge my post on rising electricity prices (now at an all time average high) which I peg, in no small part, to the EPA’s new regulations on CO2 emissions that carry out Obama’s promise in closing coal fired electrical generating plants – or cause the to go into bankruptcy.  […]

Indeed – Has our Government stripped away the value of American Citizenship?

by Skip August 5, 2014

Certainly as this trucker goes through a Border Patrol checkpoint, one can hear the dishearted question and answer: Sadly, they both may be right.  Ask yourself – what advantage does the ordinary middle-class American have over an illegal alien?  What part of American Citizenship is valuable anymore than just being here?  Used to be that: […]

So, Hamas keeps denying they shoot rockets from civilian areas?

by Skip August 5, 2014

I keep thinking that the Israeli-Hamas war is like that between the idea war between Republicans and Democrats.  Both Hamas and Democrat / Lefties are good at emotional demagoguery relying on both heartstrings and low info population and both pretty much use “its for the children” (albeit in somewhat different ways).  But occasionally, facts do crop up […]

In this clip a constitutional ‘expert’ explains to a Univision audience that (the president) can’t just suspend deportations by executive order. “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.” This was, admittedly, three years ago, well past the average shelf life of for an […]

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) Question: should there be a Special Prosecutor in the Lois Lerner IRS scandal?

You know, the one where Lois Lerner, first at the Federal Elections Committee and then while in the IRS, decided that her Federal Govt positions should be used to target people who simply disagreed with her politically (anyone not a Progressive believing in Bigger Govt was her sworn enemy), knowing that it is all but […]

…Putin has made Obama’s words to Mitt Romney during the debate “the 80s called and they want their policies back” look stupid, hollow, mocking, trite, and callow.
