If you believe that prohibiting second amendment rights to someone arbitrarily placed on a no-fly list is a sensible step then you’ve been programmed by your government to embrace incremental tyranny. Liberty in exchange for the presumption of security. The sacrifice of (other people’s) Constitutional right to due process and the notion of “innocent until […]

And we fought a War of Independence because of a government that used to do this?

by Skip July 3, 2016

No, no planes […]

How About A No Abort List?

by Scott Morales July 1, 2016

Hmmm, a secret list of women who shouldn’t be allowed to have an abortion? Okay “insert into list (select * from all_females)”. Maybe the progressives and Democrats are onto something with the government keeping lists to deny people their “rights” even if those “rights” are not literally written in the constitution like murder…oh, I mean […]

by Skip June 27, 2016

One that is unConstitutional and, well, hasn’t any “due” to the bureaucratic process now in place?  Again, you want to CHAMPION this Hotel “due process” California hell? (emphasis mine, reformatted) Currently, it can take years for an innocent individual to get off the list.

Guest Post – About Kelly Ayotte and her Constitutional disdain

by Skip June 22, 2016

Senator Ayotte: Thank you for exhibiting your basic misunderstanding of both the NH and US Constitutions with your support of Senator Collins latest bill.

Using no-fly lists in all their arbitrary glory to ignore due process protections takes on a whole new light when you apply the same empty fascist thinking to other natural rights enumerated in the Constitution. Congressman Trey Gowdy drives the point home in this video from last year which I’ve been sharing all over social media. […]

Oh, as far as fighting the Federal Dept of Ed…

by Skip April 24, 2016

I mentioned how to get the Federal govt out of “Education’s” hair in my post here (“McLaughlin Middle School Principal William Krantz – put up or shut up“)- just stop doing business with them.  Seriously, put aside the lure of “free money” (that never is) and settle on just doing the basics.  Or, you can […]

Notable Quote – Kevin Williamson

by Susan Olsen December 8, 2015

‘The Democratic party’s dramatic slide into naked authoritarianism – voting in the Senate to repeal the First Amendment, trying to lock up governors for vetoing legislation, and seeking to jail political opponents for holding unpopular views on global warming, etc. – has been both worrisome and dramatic. The Democrats even have a new position on […]

Yes, Obama fits under the “write in” category for Gun Restrictions

by Skip December 7, 2015

If anything were to prove Obama’s deep ideological bias and hatred towards the American right to self-defense via the Second Amendment, it was last night when he tried conflating Islamic Jihad terrorist (and the risible lessening of such there of) by a citizen’s decreased right to own and bear arms by the use of a purely […]

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

by Skip August 15, 2015

In this day of absolute insanity on college campuses (campi?) from the Left’s censorship via Political Correctness, the Obama Administrations destroying the idea of due process when accused and being judged by a jury of your peers (as opposed to an academic Star Chamber), and the feminists’ perpetual victimhood and that the victim MUST always […]

Will New Hampshire Democrats Vote for Indefinite Detention?

by Steve MacDonald February 18, 2013

It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to discover whether or not your elected officials are more interested in government power over the people or in using their own authority in the defense of liberty.  But HB399, the New Hampshire Liberty Act, may provide us with a window into the heart of those […]
