by Skip October 1, 2016

I gave GrokTALK! the week off so I won’t be posting streams every morning over the next few days. Instead, I am pondering a few new ideas for how best to use that time. It may make more sense to stream at different hours and different lengths of time. I am still considering using other […]

Thoughts on Mike Biundo’s “The NH GOP desperately needs an all-of-the-above strategy”

by Skip December 18, 2014

I’ve known Mike now for almost a decade – certainly far less than others, more than some.  In that time, I come to respect him – deep seated values, a great work ethic, an ability to see the long ball, and best of all, he tolerates me and some of my “outbursts”.  He had an […]

The call to demand that whomever we elect be pressured to “get something done” is a call that is easily answered.  Want to “get something done?”  Vote Republican. Republicans are far more likely than Democrats to devolve power and money (the Feds stole) back to the states they robbed. At the state and local level, Washington […]

Thumbnail image for Hope?  When Obama Is Done You Won’t Have Any

Hope (and change) were the promise of the Obama Presidency.  We’ll change things until you have no hope.  That’s what happened.  And that is the plan going ‘Forward.’ Democrats all across the nation are embracing 1.9% total growth in 2013 and 0.1% in the first quarter of 2014.  And they should.  This is what they […]

Gosh, and I really thought that smart people knew the answer

by Skip February 3, 2014

The recent shooting at the mall in Columbia, Maryland (another “gun free” zone) is a tragedy; three young adults dead.  Katy Perry (a singer of some note, I’m told) had a couple of tweets on the subject of CHANGE!: Change?  “When will there be ACTUAL change?”  Answer is rather simple in concept: It isn’t just […]

This “social justice” idiocy is supposed to promote “unit cohesion” – Not? Oh, that IS the point.

by Skip October 31, 2013

You know, this whole “social justice” thing is just Cultural Marxism wrapped up in Political Correctness. This is meant to do one thing and one thing only – install guilt into a vast majority of people have done nothing wrong.

Thumbnail image for Michael Barone – On Faith and Global Warming

Michael Barone has a piece in the Washington Examiner whose thrust is to address the UN panels historic downgrading of past apocalyptic rhetoric regarding mans so-called impact on global climate.  We’ve apparently been given a 17 year waiver from the universe, something the ‘war’mists call a pause, a pause that conservatives note better explains the […]

The Real Agents of Change

by Steve MacDonald May 30, 2013

Democrats like to promote themselves as change agents.  Agents of change.  And this makes them hip.  Modern.  Progressive.  But nothing could be further from the truth. Democrats promote the politicization of everything and by extension the bureaucratization of everything.  To them government is the best arbiter of progress.  But the process of making government the […]
