Interesting question on the Left’s treatment of Christianity

by Skip December 2, 2016

David French, whom we’ve had on GrokTALK!, does a run up and then asks a question.  First, the run up: John and Jill are both applying to work at a company like Google, Apple, Starbucks, or Disney. John is an advocate for LGBT issues, he believes Caitlyn Jenner is a woman, and he thinks Black […]

Notable Quote – Scott Adams

by Skip December 2, 2016

Yes, THAT Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) on Donald Trump: Here’s the real story. You need a business filter to see it clearly. In my corporate life I watched lots of new leaders replace old leaders. And there is one trick the good leaders do that bad leaders don’t: They make some IMMEDIATE improvement that […]

Did anyone really expect anything different? Socialist / Communitarian restaurant goes belly up.

by Skip December 2, 2016

I saw the news when this “avante – garde” (e.g., true socialism in action) small biz opened and decided to throw out all of the regular rules of capitalism (and, not to be too obvious, capitalism) and run it strictly according to socialist thought.  Apparently, they thought that they were “the Right People” socialists have […]

I Think ‘Sanctuary’ College Campuses Are a GREAT Idea

by Steve MacDonald December 2, 2016

College Campuses that want to declare themselves as sanctuaries for illegal aliens are a great idea and here’s why. Because they are violating Federal law, all tax dollars and federal grants can and should be terminated. Any university accepting students who are paying with federal student loans is subject to this scrutiny ICE will know […]

Is There A Price to Pay for Reaching Across the Cereal Aisle?

by Steve MacDonald December 2, 2016

When confronted with people who do not believe as they do, Liberals screech, insult, intimidate, protest, boycott, threaten, and riot. Progressives use these tactics on individuals, groups, organizations, and corporations to advance their social issues agenda or to silence or punish opponents. Take no prisoners. Resistance is futile. Never stop even after you get your […]

Blogline of the Day – I swear I’m not making this up!

Ohio State Knife Attacker Abdul Artan Was Taking a Class About Microaggressions. His group project was due later this week.

It’s SO much fun when the Democrat Identity Groups start fighting each other for the top totem pole position

by Skip December 1, 2016

Oh, I said totem pole?  Is that offensive or “cultural appropriation”?  Too bad because from here, that’s exactly what it looks like from here.  Funny as all get out, them all tryin’ to prove who is the biggest victim group and worthy of praise – and more political spoils than the other groups.  But that’s […]

If the Legislative Branch hadn’t thrown its Power to and groveled to the Executive Branch…

NH House Speaker Shawn Jasper burnishes his reputation as a…

by Skip December 1, 2016

…petty, little, nitwit with grandiose self-assuredness of his ability to blunder about.  A STERLING example of absolute power (in his case, in very small ways) over those that have no power at all – the definition of a tyrant.  Seriously, Jasper, the height of blatant “Retribution – I shall do it….because I can“!  And against someone […]

Guest Post – newly elected NH House Rep Norm Silber

Who is MY House Rep – and chair of my hamlet’s Budget Committee.

Kellogg’s Values Now Include Cop Killing?

by Steve MacDonald December 1, 2016

Kellogg got some more explaining to do. “The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which maintains strong financial ties to the Kellogg Company, has provided at least $930,000 in support of the controversial work of the Black Lives Matter organization.” Kellogg Inc. is uncomfortable advertising on Conservative Websites because they don’t align with their values.

And sometimes, it is just too easy: “…aren’t aligned with our values as a company”

by Skip November 30, 2016

That’s what Kellogg said here.  Well, there is that old saw of never picking a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel (or nowadays, pixels).  And who have investigative reporters armed with Lexis-Nexis and der Google.  Why?  Brietbart, the target of Kellogg’s ire thanks to Leftist activists trying to put them out of […]

And a real life example with uber-Left (and Hillary rump-swab) “journalist”Andrea Mitchell: On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell’s exchange with former Defense Secretary William Cohen turned surprisingly contentious when the Clinton cabinet official started lecturing the press on its obsession with every tweet from President-elect Donald Trump: “I think we have to […]

Notable Quote – Dierdre McCloskey

by Skip November 29, 2016

The mechanism seems to be that, when a sensitive adolescent in a nonslave society first notices that some people are much poorer than her family, she is likely to conclude that the best remedy is to open Daddy’s wallet. (It is not an efficacious plan, because redistribution can give to the poor the mere 20 […]

And this NH “political” story absolutely misses the REAL point entirely

Chicago Taxes Plastic Grocery Bags to Save the ‘Environment’ (wink-wink)

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2016

Chicago recently instituted a new $0.07 per bag tax on plastic grocery/store bags. No price is too high to save the environment, right? What if the “environment” is the city budget? Roughly 70% of that green-tax will go directly to the city to plug holes in the municipal budget. The stealth tax does not quite […]
