Why suffer when Progressive Paradises are so close?

by Don May 20, 2014

Last weekend I traveled through beautiful parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. These nearby beautiful states do all the things that New Hampshire Progressives/Liberals/Socialists complain that New Hampshire doesn’t do. It’s a shame that we have so many unhappy citizens when these Progressive paradises are so close. Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York have huge […]

“…governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

by Skip March 24, 2014

The full line from the US Declaration of Independence is: “That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”  Meaning that the American philosophy that we allow ourselves (we give our consent) to be governed by our elected Representatives.  Which also means that there […]

It’s Worse Down South – A Letter From Connecticut

by Mike March 10, 2014

Legislators just ‘doing something’, hastily crafted laws that ban popular rifles, making lawful gun-owners into felons…… And those citizens determining to quietly ignore the faulty law and keep their guns. Cries of Molon Labe are being heard in bluest Connecticut, of all places. Police Chiefs are declining, for now, to attempt any weapon seizures. Talk […]

Just thought I’d opine on something that Grokster Ed had already brought up (had problems the ‘Net going up and down during the storm earlier in the week, so I’ve been rather silent last few days).  One of my Samsphere buddies, WTH, had an opinion that he had sent along  via email as well: The […]

Confiscation, Plain And Simple

by Ed Naile February 13, 2014

Connecticut has made thousands of gun owners into criminals by passing a law that criminalizes legal weapons owned by its “citizens”, or subjects.

Usually I hate Passive / Agressive behavior – this, not so much:

by Skip January 26, 2014

“Screw you!” In the aftermath of Newtown and the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy (and the tragedies before it), several states (all of them Democrat controlled)  immediately jumped to put new gun restriction laws into place.  The problem is that NONE of the passed laws would have stopped a single one of them from happening […]

Thumbnail image for Newtown Post Sandy Hook – Pistol Permit’s up 110%

While Democrats and their anti-self defense cabal used the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary to advance their own ridiculous and destructive political agenda, actual people in Newtown Connecticut grasped reality by the gonads.

When is someone going to sue the state of Connecticut?

by Steve MacDonald June 29, 2013

When is someone going to sue the state of Connecticut for public endangerment and as an accomplice to murder? Children are dead because of a policy agenda, sold to the people as a better guarantee of safety, enforced by the police state, that intentionally disarmed its citizens, and clearly identified the places where they would […]

Gun Manufacturer PTR Industries is leaving Connecticut for South Carolina and taking most of its’ 140 employees with it.  The move will take about three years but their gone and gone.

Sober Talk From New Hampshire Democrats on Assault Weapons?

by Steve MacDonald December 20, 2012

The Union Leader has an editorial out this morning that quotes some members of New Hampshire Democrat leadership as tip-toeing around the current wave of rhetoric and discussion on what to do about guns. Instead, they are asking what are probably important questions about mental health services but I suspect that their interest here is […]

Right Left Divide on The “Knowledge of Wrongdoing.”

by Steve MacDonald August 1, 2012

Democrats and the media are all uppity about a Romney staffer yelling at the press.  I guess this is the next ‘Waterloo’ for the Romney campaign.  The fifth or sixth or fiftieth beginning-of-the-end for the GOP (presumptive) nominee.  Clearly a guy with a staffer who would insult the media is unfit for public office? Meanwhile, […]

by Steve MacDonald October 6, 2010

Easy question, unless you are a liberal democrat like Dick Blumenthal.  Linda McMahon asked this question in her debate last night with Dick whom she is running against for the a Senate Seat from Connecticut.  He didn’t seem to know how.
