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?

by Skip May 25, 2014

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

by Steve MacDonald November 28, 2013
Thumbnail image for 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.

by Steve MacDonald August 22, 2013
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?

by Skip April 8, 2013

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 […]

Obama’s move to a more Socialistic state – a warning from someone who grew up in a socialist state

by Skip October 13, 2012

“America’s wealth comes from the efforts of people striving for success. Take away their incentive with badmouthing success and you take away the wealth that helps us take care of the needy. Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer — but the poor will also be poorer. People will lose interest in really working […]

Notable quote: The horror of Leftist statism.

by Tim Condon October 2, 2012

This is a quote from Peter Hof, an historian and author of “Our Century,” discussing the human attraction of otherwise sane human beings to statism in the form of the political Left: The rhetoric of the Left is always beatific, romantic, and idealistic. But when we look around the world, whether at present or historically, […]

When I put up the video of Dana Loesch and Jim Hoft, I totally forgot about a real important point until I went back to GatewayPundit to check on something (emphasis mine): It seems like it was just yesterday that I broke the news here on Gateway Pundit that Van Jones signed 9-11 Truther documents […]

Every Thanksgiving we can now expect the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to do to your holiday what it has done to everything else it touches–ruin it. This year is no different. They have once again equipped your obnoxious left-leaning relatives with their very own palm-card.

The Liberal Darkness

by Steve MacDonald November 20, 2011

Nothing they say today will matter tomorrow. And this applies to their policies as well. We see this in the bald faced contradictions of their own words and ideas; their disregard for anything that slows their accumulation of power. And they will do and say anything to hold power because they are spiritually empty, disconnected–hoping power will somehow complete them.

NH Dems Target ‘Free State Project.’

Two Dick’s & Obama’s Vitamin Police

by Steve MacDonald October 10, 2011

Long story short, if the regs went into place the vitamin shelf at the store would be emptied until supplement makers submitting test results to the FDA and the products were approved. And the added for battling the bureaucracy and testing regime? You’d be paying that when they products went back on the shelf, if they did.

Obamanomics Is Like A Computer Virus on the Economy

Socialist Fallacies

by Steve MacDonald October 2, 2011

Socialist Fallacies is a book written by Yves Guyot and readily available in the public domain as a pdf.  If you have not read it, I highly recommend it.  Every page (so far) is loaded with observations about socialism that are as relevant today as they were in the early 1900’s.  Guyot relates the problems […]
