Snippet 3: Koba the Dread, Zachto?

by Scott Morales June 28, 2016

Snippet 3 of this series asks: What do you call the killing of twenty million people? It’s really not called anything at all in this country. Not a word. Not a phrase. It’s not mentioned at all.  Most do not know of the massive Soviet killing. Some Russians call it “the twenty million”.  But Amis […]

Snippet 2: Koba the Dread, Christopher Hitchens, Breaking the Truth

by Scott Morales June 17, 2016

Snippet 2 of this series touches on the friendship of Amis and Christopher Hitchens and the left’s penchant for breaking the truth. During the mid-1970s I worked for the famous and historic and now perhaps obsolescent Labour weekly, the New Statesman (or the NEW STATESMAN, in its own house style). § My contemporaries there were […]

Snippet 1: Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million

by Scott Morales June 9, 2016

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile.  And given our current circumstances, now seems about right.  I read this fantastic non-fiction book late last year that I’d like to share bits of; hopefully, this will encourage you to read it.  It’s by Martin Amis, and it’s about the left in the West and the […]

An “end feature” of Bernie’s and Hillary’s Democratic Socialism – see Venezuela

by Skip May 1, 2016

Under Chavez and his designated replacement Maduro, we can see EXACTLY what will happen if Progressives keep moving us further away from the Constitution and towards Das Kapital: With Socialism Failing To Provide, Venezuelans Resort To Looting In Order To Survive Right now, there is a lack of access to television, long distance phone service, […]

After the Show – Part II

by Skip April 18, 2016

Again, we are absolutely amazed and disheartened that socialism has made such a return to American politics – it is the antithesis of what the Founders stood for.  I’ve gone over why I believe it has over and over again, so I’m not going to do it here.  Instead, we mentioned on last Saturday’s show […]

The heart of a socialist is long – and always gets broken

by Skip April 16, 2016

If you are always reading, you will learn something new all the time!  And this I didn’t know, that socialism (and the tendency of Progressives to try (force?) to “perfect” others arrived here on our shores much earlier than the late 1800s in this piece labeled “The Character of a Socialist” (emphasis mine, reformatted): Upon […]

Bernie Sanders – Bread lines are GOOD for you?

by Skip April 9, 2016

Yes, he’s proving that Socialism is not about shared wealth, it IS about shared misery.  If it were the former, a real workers’ Utopia that Socialists and Communists are always lying bragging about, who would have to wait in a line to get bread.  I am of the generation that saw “citizens” of Socialist governments […]

Instapundit answers THE question of last night’s riot at cancelled Trump rally

by Skip March 12, 2016

I remember people saying that back in 1968, too. Back then, it was the New Left radicals attacking (literally a riot) their “own” Party, the Democrats.  Now, the New Left (organized by MoveOn.org) is going after Trump – who breaks every conceivable Political Correctness out there.  And we are now seeing, outside of college campuses), […]

Oh Bernie? I think the Healthcare narrative is changing under your feet!

by Skip February 26, 2016

Bernie would be Bernie Sanders, the Socialist Communist in Democrat wolf’s fur.  He of the “everything’s FREE in America” bent – until the bill comes due.  Given that he’s appealing to the economic and history idiots in the country, he’s gained a lot of traction especially when he wants a single payer healthcare system here […]

Notable Quote – Bernie hates capitalism

by Skip February 10, 2016

From Weekend Pundit: Speaking of Bernie Sanders, we should all remember that he’s never held a private sector job. All of his paychecks have come from government, be it the city of Burlington, Vermont or from Uncle Sam as a member of Congress, either in the House or the Senate. He’s never had to worry […]

Data Point – Bernie Sanders will hoover up your money

by Skip January 19, 2016

Bernie Sanders, like all Socialists / Statists, believes your money is really the State’s money.  After all, if you believe in Warrenism, “you didn’t build that” and apparently, Bernie believes that the State is only lending you your money, and now he wants it back.  After all, like all Statists, he believes his spending your […]

Martin Luther King on Marxism / Communism / Socialism / Progressivism

by Skip January 19, 2016

For in the end, they are pretty much aligned to the same end – The Bigger the Citizen, the smaller the citizen (emphasis mine): During the Christmas holidays of 1949 I decided to spend my spare time reading Karl Marx to try to understand the appeal of communism for many people. For the first time […]

Obama Staffers: Anita Dunn, Van Jones….and now Samatha Powers

by Skip September 29, 2015

You are who you surround yourself with – and it has been clear that Obama by choosing his staff, he has made his ideology clear.  Both Dunn and Jones made it quite clear where they stood politically – example when Anita Dunn praised Mao Zedong as her idol.  So now we go to Obama’s UN […]

Notable Quote – Theodore Dalrymple

by Skip February 25, 2015

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, […]

ObamaCare, ObamaZone – The Big Lie: ” It was disguised as something that would be almost completely voluntary”

by Skip July 27, 2014

NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“ And that is not the expression of one that values or cherishes Freedom; instead, it is THE  seedling of Totalitarianism.  Obamacare, ObamaZoning – different facets of the same evil – those that have the hubris of incomplete knowledge that feel they have the right […]

LeBron James knows what Obama and Elizabeth Warren don’t

by Skip July 14, 2014

Caught at The Corner: The line in his [LeBron James] return-to-Cleveland statement that resonates most with us denizens of the North Coast is the following: “In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.” Contrast that statement with Barack Obama’s obtuse, insulting, and dispiriting 2012 observation: ” You didn’t build […]

OUR State Project: What is it about “Free” that has Zandra Rice-Hawkins and Cynthia Chase’s panties in a bunch?

Adding a bit more from Steve’s post on the hysterical OUR State Project Progressives that believe that people who seemingly just want to be left alone by Government are THE existential threat to NH!  Remember, this from people who are out of staters themselves and depend on outside money to attack these people who just want […]

Does the following make you think of a certain big eared person?  Or a certain Mann?  The Gaystapos?  The Left? Odd that they all claim the mantle of science and tolerance when neither are true.  Hoffer helps explain why.  All emphasis mine. All active mass movements strive…to interpose a fact-proof screen between the faithful and […]

Gun Prohibition from a Cuban who was told the same thing: “don’t worry” – by Marxist Fidel Castro

by Skip February 9, 2014

Progressivism highly depends on one item – a lack of education in history.  Without a firm foundation of what and WHY something has happened in the past, well, you can say anything you want, even lies, in misleading people.  Why?  They have no idea on how to respond to that lie.  For this guy, Manual […]

NBC Praises “A Pivotal Experiment” (Not The USA)!

by Mike February 8, 2014

You can’t make this stuff up! While (selectively) covering the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Putin-Lympics, NBC got a bit more than a tingle up their legs. In fact, they got so excited at the giant hammer and sickle moving across the stage that they coined a phrase that left many watchers gobsmacked, calling the […]

Communism is The Answer – “It’s Settled Science!”

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2014
Thumbnail image for Communism is The Answer – “It’s Settled Science!”

Global Warming has never been about warming.  It is a scheme to use “energy” and the environment to direct behavior toward a socialist system of central planning, even if that “system” is contrary to the stated objective of climate alarmism. If you need proof of that take a look at this. United Nations climate chief […]

There’s a reason why they call them “Watermelon Environmentalists”

by Skip January 15, 2014

That would be Green on the outside, Red on the inside.  And in this case, this would be the old fashioned reason for Red – and it doesn’t mean the traditional “true blue American” either.  Red for Socialist…..or Communists (and we need to correct the coloration).  Every environmentalist and their actions always require a solution […]

What’s Another Name For A Government Monopoly

Hard to resist. Apparently the ObamaCare enrollment blitz envisioned by Organizing for Acorn Squash–aided by media allies like the Huffington Post–with a launch date of your Thanksgiving table, has been scuttled.  And it is both a launch problem and a design problem.  (The site still doesn’t work and no operators are standing by.) While that […]

So, why is this racist guy still alive?

by Skip November 25, 2013

I am now at the age that I actually would enjoy being in his class – it is a lot of fun to “wind up” this kinds of nutcases (emphasis mine, reformatted): Noel Ignatiev, a professor at Massachusetts College of Art, has for years advocated the total elimination of Caucasians.  During his final lecture before […]

If the Vietnamese Communists have learned this lesson, what is taking so long with ours?

by Skip September 2, 2013

After all, Progressivism is merely incremental Socialism, and Socialism (according to the Communists), is merely a step on the road to Communism (their say-so, and I have no reason to disbelieve them given their actions).  Anyways, this from Powerline is very instructive, as young skulls full of mush are now returning to the places that […]

Wandering the Twittersphere – Adolf Hitler was Not A Conservative.

Thumbnail image for Wandering the Twittersphere – Adolf Hitler was Not A Conservative.

I’m working on re-associating myself with Twitter.  As part of that commitment to wasting more of my time–in all honesty I have collected a decent news feed through my Twitter acquisitions–sometimes I wander off onto other peoples streams to see what they are sharing in 140 characters or less.   I found this very entertaining.

Still think the Second Amendment DOESN’T exist to protect us from Tyrannical Government?

On a Firefox tab somewhere, I have a couple of posts I wish to comment on this very topic (just can’t seem to find them today) – that America can turn into a Tyrannical Government (especially if Progressives succeed in doing away with the Constitution – the ONLY bulwark we citizens have against an overreaching […]

Notable Quote: Max Eastman (Socialism Doesn’t Jibe with Human Nature)

by Steve MacDonald October 15, 2012

“It seems obvious to me now–though I have been slow, I must say, in coming to the conclusion–that the institution of private property is one of the main things that have given man that limited amount of free-and-equalness that Marx hoped to render infinite by abolishing this institution.  Strangely enough, Marx was the first to […]
