Yes, Reince Priebus, that’s just about right….let’s talk price

by Skip August 8, 2014

Watching FoxNews “Special Report” is a staple for me – while it seems that they do try to report the news fairly straight up (yes, sometimes shaded a bit or bit more to the Right – let’s be honest here, as do the others shade (or in the case of MSNBC, leap) to the Left), it […]

Erstwhile 2016 Democrat Prez Candidate thanks Establishment Republicans for doing Democrats’ dirty work

by Skip July 18, 2014

Irony; Hillary Clinton thanks the Jr. Partners of the Democrat Party for doing the Democrats’ dirty work.  She knows EXACTLY – and GOP Establishment wing of the GOP can’t deny it as they made big deals of what they were going to do to Conservative and TEA Party candidates.  And more than a few cases […]

Signs The Orange One Is Untethered from Reality

by Scott Morales April 26, 2014
Thumbnail image for Signs The Orange One Is Untethered from Reality

I used to think the Orange One was just another morally corrupt, empty headed politician seeking self aggrandizement at the expense of his neighbors, constituents and the American people at large. I still do think that. But I also think he’s completely out of touch, not just with his own constituents, and not just with […]

Notable Quote – Kyle Becker

by Skip April 25, 2014

“…What makes Constitutional conservatives different from progressives is that they do not desire to rule their political opposition or otherwise impose their will on their fellow citizens. Instead, most conservatives want to restore the nation to its Constitutional foundations, establish fiscal responsibility in government, reinstate the free market economic principles that allowed the majority of […]

Conservatives are for You, Progressive Politicians are for Themselves

by Don March 16, 2014

Conservatives want the very best for everyone. We want people to be free, happy, healthy, independent, safe, financially secure, and to feel they are leading lives of accomplishment by providing for their families and contributing to others. These blessings are enabled and fostered by Conservative policies. Everyone applauds Bono’s humanitarian efforts in Africa. Bono realized […]

Notable Quote – Brent Bozell

by Susan Olsen February 11, 2014

“Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes. In return they have repeatedly promised not just to stop the liberal assault on our freedoms and our national […]

Equality: How Liberals think Conservatives see it – Part III

by Skip November 22, 2013

A great graphic that I’ve chopped up a bit – last Part  tonite For Progressives, “Equality” seems to be the driving force – everyone MUST be equal no matter what area of life is being viewed.  Anything that promotes or allows “inequality” must be stamped out.  Freedom is reserved for the realm of “free from […]

Notable Quote – Jonah Goldberg

by Skip November 8, 2013

The difference, however, is that conservatives tend to see government as a necessary evil, and therefore see policymaking with some humility. Liberals tend to see government as a necessary good, and see ordering people to do things “for their own good” as a source of pride, even hubris. From a conservative perspective, telling people how […]

If you follow these rules, you may want some time for reflection…

by Skip October 22, 2013

‘Grok friend John Hawkins has a new column over at Townhall that outlines the 10 most essential rules that you have to follow if you want to be an “Establishment Republican” (other than blue blazers for men and pearl necklaces for women): 1) There is nothing ever worth fighting for except Democrat policies: If you’re […]

While the Left Marches On, The Establishment GOP Pounds the Drum

by Scott Morales October 20, 2013
Thumbnail image for While the Left Marches On, The Establishment GOP Pounds the Drum

I heard the John Wayne interview on the way to work Friday. I was struck by the striking similarities between then and now. The exact words could have been uttered today because they’re just as relevant. Which makes my pulse race and blood rush through my veins in anger. It’s the same sh#t we’ve been […]

Notable Quote – Michael Walsh

by Susan Olsen October 18, 2013

Pork scraps.  Ouch. ‘The GOP is not, in any meaningful sense, a conservative, first-principles, Constitutionalist party — and unless it’s subsumed by the Tea Party, it never will be. Rather, it’s content to be the lesser half of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party as long as it can collect some of the pork scraps from […]

Progressives hate it when Conservatives take over their church

by Skip September 23, 2013

And make no mistake, to Progressives, politics IS a religion!  This is the post that I read from while we were yakking with Bill O’Brien during GrokTALK! (update: here too!) this past Saturday that outlines some of the VAST differences in outlook between Conservatives that are confident in themselves and in their fellow citizens and […]

Maybe the country’s OK after all – Duck Dynasty

by Skip August 24, 2013

I stumbled upon Duck Dynasty when it first started: a bunch of good old boys just having fun  – and getting fabulously wealthy at the same time.  And then I started to really watch past the beards, past the slapstick humor, and figured out that this was as conservative a show that there was on […]

OK, what do you think about how a Conservative views others vs Progressives?

by Skip August 14, 2013

Sometimes I just have a lot to add to something that someone has written and the following is something that I do believe to be true from MY Conservative / libertarian leanings stand point.  Pretty much, I do believe this segment from a RedState post by plumely summarizes the outlooks of Conservatives vs Statist Progressive […]

Data Point – Obamacare still not liked

by Skip August 4, 2013

I guess that’s why Obama is about to spend $750 million to convince is “Smile!  It’s GOOD for you!”.  From Powerline, this part of a poll on Obamacare, a commentary on “government shutdown” or Obamacare.  There’s nobody that has submitted legislation aligned with this question, it is still an interesting result from LIVs that wouldn’t […]

Separation of The Climate Church And State

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2013

Liberals want to spend  your money to create energy “solutions” that can never deliver enough power to meet our needs, whose manufacturing processes are extremely harmful to the environment, that do not produce very many jobs, cannot be sustained without taxpayer support (many of which fail despite it), many of whose raw materials come from […]

Democrats and Republicans Can’t Get Along…

by Steve MacDonald June 13, 2013

  “Of course, the country’s split politically. Democrats and Republicans can’t get along. And it is hard to figure out if it is ever going to get back together. But I heard a story about a guy who was in a hot air balloon. He was lost and he lowered his altitude. He spotted a […]

Small Government best protects the Peoples’ Liberties

by Don April 2, 2013

I was happy to see, in his letter of March 26th (http://issuu.com/dailysun/docs/lds3-26-13), that Johan Andersen agrees with the historic and current conservative position that humans can be evil and corruptible.  I wonder if he understands the implications of his position. Our Founding Fathers struggled to create a government that protected peoples’ liberties.  Their focus wasn’t […]

No Labels is Now New And Improved!!!

by Steve MacDonald January 15, 2013

No Labels has grown tired of being No Body, of No Interest, and having No point, so they are “shedding their centrist label.” For those of you who slept through the first part of this ‘movie,’ No Labels started out under the assumption that we could get a lot more done if we left our […]

EMail Doodlings – OK, putting this up a couple days late.

by Skip November 7, 2012

But actually, it turned out to be a bit prescient, as in two races here in NH in my mind (Frank Guinta & Bob Burns), what I warned about came true: This may not sit well…. It seems to me that the full bore / hard core Libertarians (“HCLs”) on this list (which, after all […]

Blogline of the Day – on Charity

by Skip September 21, 2012

Steve has the info on Romney’s tax returns – consistently outgiving, percentage-wise those that have been yammering for his returns to be made public.  From Instapundit, reflecting on the ReProgressive definition of Charitable giving: “If you really care, you don’t give money yourself. You get the government to force other people to give. That’s what […]

A Condensed Version of History…

by Tom September 9, 2012

So, I’m reading the comments on a FoxNews story that reports how Paul Ryan is preparing for his upcoming debate with “Doofus” Joe Biden (don’t ask me how I got to this point).  Anyhow, the silver lining of this Sunday-night distraction was stumbling upon a comment posted by a user named “I AM ALWAYS RIGHT […]

Question with respect to the proposed state constitution educational amendment

by Tim Condon May 3, 2012

Damn. There is one hell of a row going on at the excellent RLCNH email discussion list over the proposed state constitutional amendment regarding education—CACR12—which, one way or another, will put the responsibility for implementing and funding a “state system” of education in the hands of the state legislature, not the towns (where it has traditionally and historically resided).

David Brooks is the epitome of his own ‘moderate Republican’ vision

by Skip March 1, 2012

David Brooks is one unhappy dude – I would be, too, if I was the New York Times token “Conservative “.  Problem is, in order to be Conservative, one has to have a solid belief system rooted in actual conservative values – something he actually doesn’t particularly like (my previous post: strong American values are […]
