Notable Quote – Prof. David Corbin & Matt Parks

by Skip April 15, 2014

From a longer piece at The Federalist (go read the whole thing, emphasis here is mine): …Americans, Madison argues, are natural republicans–republicans in their heads and in their hearts, determined to show the world that “self-government” is possible. The republican principle, as Madison defines it later in the essay, requires “a government which derives all its […]

Palate Cleanser – As a former very frequent flier, my hat is off to her!

by Skip April 15, 2014

Working for DEC and for my present company, I’ve flown a lot of miles in the Friendly Skies of United (close to 3/4 of a million).  It got to the point that *I* could have given the safety speech that is given before the plane leaves terra firma.  For the most part, it was the […]

OFA – “We Made History” Tweet

Thumbnail image for OFA – “We Made History” Tweet

This is stupid on many levels but coming from smiley-faced fascist progressive pragmatists the statement itself contradicts the entire movement they live for.  To a Liberal there is no history.  There can’t be.  Forward?  Change?  Progressivsim does not rest on the past, it only drives forward blindly ruining the future.   And you can’t “make” […]

Guest post by the Hon. Bob Guida – “What Will You Tell YOUR Children?”

by Skip April 15, 2014

To those who believe that courts are infallible, or that they are the final arbiter of laws, think again. Reference Plessy v. Ferguson, Dred Scott v. Sandford, and Roe v. Wade.  Courts make mistakes – huge mistakes – all of which serve to underscore the fact that we are a Constitutional Republic, not a judicial […]

Vermont has embarked on a mission to create a single payer system.  They voted for it but have yet to pass a bill to pay for it.  I wonder why? “…Act 48 required Vermont to create a single-payer system by 2017, the state hasn’t drafted a bill spelling out how to raise the additional $1.6 […]

I have been following the New Hampshire Political ruling class efforts to stifle political speech for years.  It is a bipartisan effort to erect barriers to free speech.  So what do you call that?  Almost free speech?  Sort of Free speech?  Selective Free speech?  Speech that’s free but only during the calendar days defined by […]

Given that Frazier Glenn (Cross) Miller Jr, the Kansas Shooter, was a former KKK Grand Dragon and (of course) a life-long Democrat, this quote seemed appropriate… “I have never voted for any man who was not a regular Democrat. My father … never voted for any man who was not a Democrat. My grandfather was […]

Data Point – And Progressives keep saying its a GREAT investment??

Gosh, and I thought everyone knew that those late into a Ponzi scheme gets screwed! Demographics rule this world, and Progressive policies that have made it more and more expensive to have the larger families that easily supported the underpinnings of SS (i.e., lots of workers to support retired) will end up killing their own […]

It’s not about the Republican war on women – it’s the Democrat war on WIVES

Even THESE Lefty talking heads don’t know what Hillary’s done

Sorry, but putting up with Bill’s philandering doesn’t make one a Presidential quality candidate.  Either does being an activist First Lady.  Haven’t heard of her singular accomplishments as a US Senator after she just “dropped into” New York either (although I have heard she was a hard worker – but I couldn’t tell you what […]
