Rep. Ben Sasse Talks About the Kavanaugh Confirmation Circus

by Steve MacDonald September 5, 2018

Senator Ben Sasse felt the need to use his time on day one of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing to explain a few things about the confirmation process, the role of the Court, the legislature. Basic stuff you’d think sitting US Senators should have figured out. I guess not.

The Democrat’s Child Endangerment Exception: Not a Crime for Illegal Aliens

by Steve MacDonald July 10, 2018

We had separation week, but as it turns into Separation Summer, I had another thought about how hypocritical the far-left is on the so-called issue of Trump separating families. If you walked your children across an unforgiving desert or placed them in the company of narco-terrorists, drug dealers, human traffickers, or gang members, sometimes for […]

Illegal Alien Child Rapists are Separating Children From Their Childhood

by Steve MacDonald July 6, 2018

North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement  (NCFire) is a private group that combs through state and local crime data.  They document the child sexual assaults charges/arrests of undocumented illegal aliens in their state. They do not assert that they find them all which is shocking when you look at what they uncover. NCFire has recorded over 400 […]

NH Number One In Child Welfare But That’s Just Not Good Enough

by Steve MacDonald June 29, 2018

So, about your children? New Hampshire is the highest-ranked state for children’s well-being, according to a national survey released on Wednesday. The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Kids Count report, based on data from 2016, ranks New Hampshire first overall and second in economic well-being, with drops in the number of children living in households with high […]

It’s Family Separation Week at CNN – Retaliatory Carpet Truth Bombing Required

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2018

One of the televisions at Cardiac Rehab was on CNN this morning. The volume is down (thank the Lord), but it has closed captioning, so you can read (or not) what’s important to the Leader in Fake News. It’s all about “separating families.” The whole time I was there. CNN is, not unexpectedly, all in […]

Leave ‘Traditional’ Marriage in the NHGOP Platform

by Carolyn April 14, 2018

To advocates for removing “traditional” from marriage in the NHGOP platform. First, you are guilty of using the most frustrating and pernicious leftist debate tactic. To try to make your case, you use examples outside the norm – such as families who adopt, grandparents raising their grandchildren, single parents due to the death of a spouse […]

“If you wouldn’t be swayed by a 17-year-old’s passionate advocacy for a lower drinking age”

by Steve MacDonald March 19, 2018

A little more perspective on the political “wisdom” of yutes. …[E]ven if students really were disproportionately likely to be victims of gun violence, that would not be a good reason to give special credence to their policy views. Personally experiencing a horrific event or being at disproportionate risk of suffering one, doesn’t necessarily give you […]

NH Democrats: School Choice is Only for Children who can Afford it

by Kimberly Morin January 4, 2018

Yesterday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to pass Senate Bill 193 (SB 193), AN ACT establishing education freedom savings accounts for students. The goal of the bill is to allow parents, who choose to set up an Education Freedom Savings Account (ESA), to receive a small portion of the taxpayer dollars they are […]

Progressive Contradiction of the day?

by Steve MacDonald April 26, 2016

Progressive Contradiction of the day? Parents are irresponsible and should be punished for ‘free-ranging’ kids (letting them play or walk unsupervised and presumably unprotected) but suggesting that pedophiles might pretend to be transgender to get access to your daughter in a bathroom is bigoted. (Add this to my point last week on the progressive contradiction with regard to […]

Steve Lewis, Art Chair at Phillips Exeter Academy (PEA), has “left the building.” When confronted by police investigating claims that he may have had a ‘sexual encounter’ with a student he admitted to it, and has been fired. The Union Leader has more . Sexual encounter. Sexual encounter? If he were a priest wouldn’t they call it sexual […]

We are all ‘Children’ to Their Government

by Steve MacDonald March 29, 2016
Thumbnail image for We are all ‘Children’ to Their Government

When a progressive says “it’s for the children,” we picture kids. Considering how they’d like government to treat “grown-ups,” I think they are referring to everyone not just children under the age of “x.”

Gender Ideology Harms Children

by Steve MacDonald March 21, 2016
Thumbnail image for Gender Ideology Harms Children

The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality. There are some good points in this statement and most, if not all of it, will irritate a […]

Abortion – the Big Flashlights have made a difference

by Skip August 12, 2015

Snippets from a post by Ruben Navarrette, Jr., a 30-year pro-choice male who is starting to realize, with prompting from his wife, of a major responsibility of being a man (reformatted, emphasis mine): …As I’ve only realized lately, to be a man, and to declare yourself pro-choice, is to proclaim your neutrality. And, as I’ve […]

Universal Pre-K? The Progressive way of having YOUR kids taken over by Government

by Skip July 8, 2015

“I’ll be free of them four days a week!!” Yeah, that was the exclamation of one mother of young children when she heard that her two kids were going to be in school through the summer in Special Ed class. Not a word was said at that point in time about the help they “might” get […]

Abortion, Bishops, the ACLU, And Il-legal Immigrant Children or something…

by Steve MacDonald April 8, 2015
Thumbnail image for Abortion, Bishops, the ACLU, And Il-legal Immigrant Children or something…

Via Ace – Let’s see if I can summarize: (1) The Hill has taken to calling unaccompanied children who have arrived in this country illegally “unaccompanied immigrant children.” (2) There are groups who have government contracts to take care of such children. (3) Quite a few of these children have been raped.

Red Alert! Commissioner Virginia Barry of theNH Dept. of Education makes a proclamation: WE own YOUR children

by Skip February 21, 2015

Read this carefully – Commissioner Virginia Barry (Ph.D. dontcha know) has just made it very clear – NH State Government has just stripped your “ownership” and responsibility of your own children from you.  And I thought my comparison was a bit over the top last night – this makes it clear that our NH Government has […]

c/o Email/Facebook/etc… MANCHESTER — The federal government has released 13 undocumented children, who were part of a flood of 57,000 unaccompanied Central American children crossing the southwest border of the United States illegally since last October, to “sponsors” in New Hampshire since Jan. 1, according to the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement. The revelation was […]

Prager U – What Did Your Parents Most Want You to Be?

by Steve MacDonald March 17, 2014

Prager University When parents boast about their children with other people, what do most say first? Is it how nice they are to strangers? Or how much volunteering they did last year? Usually not. More often, they talk about their good grades in school, or the prestigious college they went to, or the much sought […]

Not if you were mine, sonny.  Although the BG post is about the fact that young people are NOT going to get the tax subsidies they thought they were promised (yet another expired Obama campaign promise – welcome to the ‘screwed over Club”, young’uns – you got pwned), it was this smiling fool that caught […]

It’s all about the money, er, children.

If alleged gun violence is what really  makes her tick, why isn’t/hasn’t Mizz  Hawkins taken up the fight on behalf of murdered children in Chicago? Might lead a skeptic to wonder whose parents make larger contributions…

Happy? Single Mother’s Day

by Steve MacDonald May 12, 2013

The statistics for the real modern family are dominated by the single parent household.  The single parent household is overwhelmingly run, or not as the case may be, by a mom.  Somewhere around 84% of them are fatherless children.  Many of those never knew their father or are detached from them. The leading cause of […]

The evil hypocrisy of the “progressive” Left

by Tim Condon May 8, 2013

I can’t stand coercive statism. Neither can the lady on the left, it turns out. Slavery to the state these days is generally supported by left-wing hypocrites who champion their own self-aggrandizement while posing as “lovers of humanity.” The most murderous statists of all time—from Lenin to Stalin to Hitler to Mao to Ho Chi […]

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry – If you thought getting my rifle out of my cold, dead hands was hard enough…

by Skip April 12, 2013

“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had a private notion of children; your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children,” If my kids were still young, Dr. Harris-Perry, you’d get a blast of […]

Drinkin’ his own booze

by Susan Olsen January 18, 2013

Back in my coal mining days in southern Appalachia, there was a saying folks had: “He’s drinkin’ his own booze” and it was not a compliment.  In those days, good stuff could generally be defined as spirits that wouldn’t make you go blind and the way to tell was by putting a dibby dab in a […]
