by Skip February 9, 2016

I previously posted the full interview that Lisa Dejardins, Political Director for the PBS News Hour, conducted with Steve.  Her piece, talking about the different factions within the NH GOP in the run up to today’s primary, is here.  Steve’s interview, quite short, starts with some B-roll on the front end that they shot during […]

GrokTV: PBS News Hour interviews Grokster Steve

by Skip February 9, 2016

This past Saturday we had Lisa Dejardines on GrokTALK! – it wasn’t clear to me at the start what we were supposed to talk about but it sure was a lot of fun and on some deep issues (we’ve asked her to come back if her Bosses will let her).  However, the main reason she […]

GrokTALK! – the videos (ok a couple of them)

by Skip February 7, 2016

Internet problems abounded this past Saturday – it and the UStream servers just kept pooping out on us.  Since the “recording camera” is not hooked up to the board, it never hears the folks on the phones.  So, I’m just going to post up the segments in which we had all the participants in studio […]

Cruz Wins Iowa

by Steve MacDonald February 2, 2016
Thumbnail image for Cruz Wins Iowa

There are some impressive points to this win. Sen. Cruz ran against the Iowa ethanol lobby and won. Despite being the conservative Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump, but that failed to push Trump over the top. Hot Air reminds us that pastor Mike the Huckster Huckabee ran all over the state calling Cruz a phony […]

Sooper Mexican |  You can sense how angry the farmer is, but Cruz employs his impressively deep knowledge of the subject to explain calmly why his policies will HELP farmers, even though he’ll phase out the government subsidy.

Iowa Caucus as explained by a kid toy

by Skip January 31, 2016

Legos, that is: I dryly note the bias shown – Vermont Public Radio says “How the Iowa Caucuses works” and then goes on to tell how the DEMOCRAT cauci work with just a passing reference to the Republican version.  Yet another example of a Democrat “bait and switch” (heh!) – like during election times, they campaign about […]

Need a short, pithy definition of Conservativism? This is BRILLIANT!

by Skip January 30, 2016

From US Senator Ben Sasse who points out, for the Progressives that have lost their way (and their minds) that America is not great because of its Government but because of Civil Society.  That would be the interactions of individuals who our Founders knew were the sovereigns and not a Monarchy, a Royal class, or […]

“The cruelty of the Minimum Wage”

by Skip January 20, 2016

In this short animated video from Learn Liberty I explain why raising the minimum wage is a bad idea if the goal is to improve the economic fortunes of the least-advantaged workers and families. The minimum wage yields unfair advantages to families, such as mine, with teenagers who hail from middle- and high-income households, who are well-educated, […]

Marco Rubio – still a member of the Gang of Eight?

by Skip January 18, 2016

Boy, Marco squirms in and out of the “immigration hole” faster than the Eldest’s pet snake.  We Conservatives had problems with this former TEA Party darling since he decided that he would hook up with Senator Chuckie Schumer (D-NY) who basically took him to the cleaners w/respect illegal immigration.  A lot of us went “HUH?” […]

In footsteps of otherDems, Hillary can’t answer “Difference between Dems & Socialists?”

by Skip January 7, 2016

Of course Hillary can’t because she CAN’T; it would finally admitting that Democrats hate our entire system of government – Socialists HATE our stated form of government, a Constitutional Republic with democratically elected Representatives.  Instead, they feel put upon that THEY just can’t rule by fiat (re: Obama) or see us ruled by like-minded technocratic […]

Multiculturalism demands submission by its host culture – just ask Sweden

“In other words, it is unconstitutional to uphold Swedish values in Sweden” Truly, the Stockholm Syndrome is full display.

Disarmament

by Skip December 20, 2015

“Fear a Government that fears your guns“ It is clear that after the Democrat Presidential Primary Debate last night, the Democrats trying to be Numero Uno fear an armed populace.  Pretty much, I can’t think of a Socialist Government that ever has. When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, […]
