Instapundit answers THE question of last night’s riot at cancelled Trump rally

by Skip March 12, 2016

I remember people saying that back in 1968, too. Back then, it was the New Left radicals attacking (literally a riot) their “own” Party, the Democrats.  Now, the New Left (organized by MoveOn.org) is going after Trump – who breaks every conceivable Political Correctness out there.  And we are now seeing, outside of college campuses), […]

Under the veneer of “the market”, the socialist appears – Lurch

by Skip December 12, 2015

Ah yes, John Kerry, US SecState, extols “the market” as it adapts to “the signal”.  Well golly, he sounds like an Austrian economist, doesn’t he, as he pontificates while at COP21, the big UN sponsored wealth redistribution fest under the umbrella of saving the planet. But I guess he thinks we all be stupid, eh […]

From the Harvard Law Record, Usually, we at Harvard are more than happy to see Yale students make fools of themselves on camera.

Nothing says fawning progressive media like the old adage about Fascism making the trains run on time. Back then Fascism wasn’t the dirty word it is today.  Progressives and Liberals publicly embraced it, supported it, pined for it, and insisted it would replace the Constitutional Republic.  It was the Change they were looking for.   […]

by Skip November 20, 2013

Provided by Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo), you can’t have a Free Market when it is a Government spawned entity.  But there is a word that describes that spawned entity (emphasis mine, reformatted): Sen. Claire McCaskill (D- Mo.) says Republicans are “misleading people” about ObamaCare, which she calls a “free market solution”.  McCaskill told MSNBC viewers […]

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.
