Campaign Finance limitations – dumb idea; $$ for messaging still doesn’t translate to votes

by Skip October 15, 2014

There’s Larry Lessig’s PAC, the MayDay PAC, that is raising and spending millions of dollars this election cycle – to stop others from spending so much money.  So, too, is George Soro’s son.  The Left is as well.  Sorry, their stated of “taking the money out”, I believe, masks the real reason – stopping free […]

The problem with Progressives is that they REALLY think that human nature “has progressed”.

by Skip March 23, 2014

They really believe their own PR: So much for that “Post Cold War” historical period we’re supposed to be in, eh?  Once again, Progressives not understanding that human nature IS just that – human nature.  It hasn’t changed over thousands of years on its own – there is that innate feeling that some have that […]

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 […]

“Socialism: it just hasn’t been implemented by the right set of people – yet”

by Skip November 6, 2013

Certainly not in the late Chavez’s Venezuela – last time it was foreign currency black markets, rotting food on the docks, and toilet paper hording.  Socialism – the promise of a Utopia for Everyone!  I guess that 130 years, in lots of countries world-wide, not ONE set of folks has gotten it right yet!  Small […]

They’re almost laughable – socialists and global warmists

by Skip October 4, 2013

First on the Socialists – an observation from El Rushbo: Let me give you an interesting observation on William F. Buckley. It’s a quote, but it’s more an observation. Buckley pointed out that in the ’30s we were told we had to “collectivize the nation,” i.e., big government. Go socialist. We had to collectivize the […]

Blogline of the Day – the true nature of Obama

by Skip October 3, 2013

“Do you really think the man who vandalized the World War II Memorial with barricades to make elderly veterans suffer will hesitate a microsecond to use your health care as leverage against you, the next time you defy his commands?” – John Hayward

If doctors are already not taking Medicare patients, will they opt out of Obamacare?

by Skip July 30, 2013

Or is that the reason why Obamacare was structured the way it was – political and policy decisions that effectively force doctors to sell out their practices to hospitals, and for hospitals to merge with others simply to better scale up to deal with lowered payments?  Why would this be happening?  Simply the penchant of […]

The Maze of Unaccountability

by Steve MacDonald June 14, 2013

If, over time, you’ve managed to build a maze that no one can get through, something so complex that even those tasked with it’s oversight and maintenance cannot only not oversee it, but who because of that can never expect to be held accountable, then the exercise of elections and appointments is merely a ceremonial […]

FEAR

by Steve MacDonald May 28, 2013

From the X-Files Season 2 Episode 3 – Blood Scully: “Why Mulder?  Why would they intentionally create a population that destroys itelf.“ Mulder: “Fear.  It’s the oldest tool of power.  If you distract, by fear of those around you, it keeps you from seeing the actions of those above.” Scully is asking why the government […]

When It Rains it Pours

by Steve MacDonald May 7, 2013

As an after-thought to my post on SB 11 yesterday–which has stirred up some interest around the Grokosphere and well beyond–I went looking for some details about the environmentalist/regionalist motivations with regard to water and sewer.   It is a huge subject many parts of which we’ve touched on at the Grok already; you might say the socialist/central […]

No, we are not turning into a gun blog…but hate the demogoguing the “guilt”

by Skip December 20, 2012

…even if it might look that way.  However, as the issue of guns go for us, while almost every Grokster shoots (some WAY more than others), we see it as yet another infringement by Statists in determining what is and isn’t good for you as in “Why do you need that” and “I can’t understand […]
