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 […]

I’m aware of the chaos in Ferguson Missouri and some of the why’s and what-fore’s, but not the fine particulars.   Those following might find this an interesting addition to their knowledge base. Big news if true as it seemingly contradicts a key takeaway from Michael Baden’s autopsy, that none of the shots that hit Brown […]

Update: I am told there were no pics on the Mailer.  My Apologies.  I have made relevant corrections. The NH Senate Republican Majority PAC didn’t just waste $5000.00 on a mailer that lied about Dave Boutin’s second amendment record.   They spent it to endorse in a Republican primary.  Note to Chuck Morse: I don’t think […]

Blogline – Ah yes, that social justice thing is just so malleable

by Skip August 18, 2014

“I dunno, when I see someone on the news running out of an electronics store with a flat screen TV in his arms, my first thought is, ‘he must be fighting for social justice.’” I guess that Progressive moral relativism (as in “what’s your should be mine – I’m just making it so”) plays a […]

Thumbnail image for Budget Writers Did Not Anticipate…

Budget writers did not anticipate…human nature, actually.  They never do.   The Democrat parties top-down, centrally-planned utopia completely ignores human nature, which is why Conservatives get so aggravated with Democrats and then Republicans who play along (whether they have bought in or given up). From Skip’s post last night on unexpected budget issues relating to Medicare […]

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip August 18, 2014

…Progressives say corporations using inversions are unpatriotic, which is amusing. When the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision stipulated that Americans do not forfeit their First Amendment right to political advocacy when they act together through corporations (including, and especially, incorporated nonprofit advocacy groups), progressives ridiculed the idea that corporations should be treated as people. Now, progressives charge that corporations resorting […]

GrokBITE: Senate Republican Majority PAC –
Taking A Bite Out Of NH For Boutin!

by Mike August 17, 2014

As Kimberly Notes below**, the Senate Republican Majority PAC has made a complete ass of itself by spending about $5,000 on a multicolor flyer extolling the virtues of State Senator David Boutin. In so doing, they display the same lack of principles and self-control as the clown they are defending. I’m thinking that the icon […]

NH Senate Republican Majority PAC lies about anti-2nd Amendment Senators

by Kimberly Morin August 17, 2014

The NH Senate Republican Majority PAC  beclowns itself:   “The Senate Republican Majority PAC’s mission is to support and elect Republicans to the New Hampshire State Senate.”  By paying for a 4-color mailer costing $5,000 or more, it attempts to impose mass amnesia on Senate 16 District voters in order to make them forget just how anti-firearms […]
