And Obama, the Dems, and the Left

by Skip July 2, 2015

Note to the readers: trust me, Greece is just what the picture is showing.  Part of the fundamental transformation is turning the US into the same picture – expecting that someone else is going to take care of you from money taken from them by a Government that knows best how to allocate your wealth.  […]

Blog Observation – Now we know what our new Religion is

by Skip July 2, 2015

This from Ben Shapiro at Townhall (emphasis mine): No, the gay rights movement and the broader American left celebrated the same-sex marriage decision in wild fashion because the decision established two fundamental notions: First, that government has replaced God in the moral pantheon of the United States; second, that the new god-government has the power […]

Blogline of the Day – unusable

by Skip July 2, 2015

“Apparently the only thing a women’s studies degree prepares one for is working for a university admissions office to promote that degree to other gullible students.” (H/T: Instapundit) Heh! The STEM techie and consultant bunch of bloggers at GraniteGrok concur.  Course, these precious snowflakes to tend to attack STEM folks for some perceived set of […]

Speaking of being unusable, we’re back to the DC Republicans again

by Skip July 2, 2015

We’ve commented before that the Republicans CHOOSE not to attack the Democrats the way that the Democrats attack them – or are they just incapable of defending themselves (and, er, us) because they are just the equivalent of the proverbial 98 lb dorky schmucks who haven’t figured out how “lead” to save themselves?  Case in […]

Notable Quote – Aaron Clarey?

by Skip July 1, 2015

Understand one simple thing about “socialism” “leftism” “liberalism” “communism” or whatever you want to call it. It is nothing more than the lazy of society demanding the hard working and industrious be their slaves. It is NOTHING more complicated than the parasites of society demanding the producers support and pay for them. I don’t care […]

Bruce, Bruce, Bruce….how can you deny them??

by Skip July 1, 2015

It seems that commenter Bruce Currie took offense to my post that spotlighted Ted Olsen ( gay marriage lawyer), kept refusing to answer Chris Wallace’s question of does this Supreme Court decision open the door for polygamy (emphasis mine).  His comment was: “Polygamy is historically a feature of patriarchal societies in which women are treated as […]

From Twitchy – Remember when David Axelrod said he knew nothing about Hillary’s private server..? “…Tuesday night’s massive dump of State Department emails shows that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was exchanging emails with another man also named David Axelrod. It must be a different guy, because the one warning about the “email trap” didn’t […]

So what do we do when they lie to us? Part 2

by Skip July 1, 2015

Well, after I wrote this, I saw this excerpt from Senator Ted Cruz’s new book giving us an inside look at DC Republicans.  It isn’t a pretty picture and seeing that they believe us to be Big Time Chumps for believing them, I can see why some of them have steam coming out of their […]

Observations – Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

by Skip July 1, 2015

Next, remember that life is not easy for any of us. It will probably not be fair, and it certainly is not all about you. The gray hair and wrinkles you see on older people have been earned the hard way, by living and dealing with the challenges of life. When I was a young […]

Are the Republican chickens coming home to roost?

by Skip July 1, 2015

From Erick Erickson at Redstate – he points out what a lot of us are thinking, that the fundamental transformation has taken root and a big part of it is the turning upside down and inside out of both our public policy (which WILL be enforced as YOUR new private morals (and what you have now be […]

A Derry Resident responds with an Honest perspective to the Fire Station closing

by Kimberly Morin July 1, 2015

By now many of you have heard of the outrageous union battle in Derry in which the Town Council wanted to cut taxes at the request of their constituents. The Derry Unions came out in full-force thuggery to spew their propaganda and lies about safety if one of four fire stations was closed.

So what do we do when they lie to us?

by Skip July 1, 2015

What can we do when we depend on honesty in the beginning (like NH’s Kelly Ayotte campaigning that she was ABSOLUTELY against illegal alien amnesty) and once in their office, they do the opposite?  A snippet of history on now Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan has ruled on the issue of same sex marriage.

The Price of College In-Tuition

The New Hampshire University system announced an in-state tuition rate increase of 2.75% but that wasn’t supposed to happen. UNH wanted $205 million from the next budget to (so they claim) avoid that increase and they had a list and names, and phones, and I  imagine some pens as well but to no avail. Governor […]

Notable Quote – Ray Bradbury

by Susan Olsen July 1, 2015

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over […]

GOP? Culture War? See what Doug Scamman and his ilk have wrought

by Skip June 30, 2015

Take a read on Lisa Schiffren’s take on last week’s decisions and on the Culture War.  I do agree on with her on this: It’s been an unhappy week in conservative America. I won’t lie. Last week’s three big SCOTUS rulings on Obamacare, gay marriage and housing, and the race to destroy Confederate statuary—because bringing […]

If I ever get involved in one of those surveys, even as I have been the one to put up most of the Chris Christie YouTubes, that asks which Republican candidate you would never vote for, THAT’S when he would get my vote.  Why?  I detect Scott Brown with a wider waistband – from The […]

Tolerance for religious beliefs? Obama has no more than Hillary

by Skip June 29, 2015

Remember what Hillary said? “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” Translation: you will be assimilated.  Personal, individual faith must be disregarded – and then discarded.  After last week’s homosexual marriage decision by the Supremes, Obama made it […]
