by Mike October 28, 2014

Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive  philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our […]

Andrew Breitbart: politics is downstream from culture.

by Skip October 27, 2014

Heard this line last night that speaks to this “I’m a Duck Dynasty values family forced to live in a Molly Cyrus World“; what used to be good and valued is denigrated and replaced.  What was good is now bad, what was bad is now celebrated.  Holding onto traditional values used to be a virtue […]

We’ve all been reminding voters that NH Senator  Jeanne Shaheen campaigned as a non-partisan choice for New Hampshire in 2008.  The observant among us saw that for the nonsense that it was, but she got elected anyway. Now, six years later, the not-so-partisan-Jeanne-Shaheen has a problem.  She drew her own red line.  The line at […]
