And we Conservatives wonder why people aren’t outraged?

by Skip November 21, 2013

All around us, in print, on TV, in the blogosphere, I read, see, and listen how far we have come from the Founders Vision for America.  I look at the Lefty side and wonder “how do they get away with this?  How can they simply advocate for policies contra to our Fundamental Law, the values […]

“A properly functioning democracy depends on an informed electorate”

by Skip July 4, 2013

The failure of public schools to impart even rudimentary knowledge of self-government principles, natural rights theory and the rule of law is compounded by the suicidal abandonment of civic education. As Stanford University education professor William Damon notes: “Our disregard of civic and moral virtue as an educational priority is having a tangible effect on […]

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 […]

Blind fools, in the service of blind, enervated American elites….

by Tim Condon April 28, 2012

Can extremely highly educated, very widely traveled and knowledgeable people be amazingly, obviously, exceptionally, absolutely blind to the lessons of history? Mark Steyn—who not incidentally lives in the Free State of New Hampshire—explains that, why yes, as a matter of fact they can be. In fact, there’s an example of one—well respected!—who recently wrote a […]

What brings societies like our to an end? “We all know what will save us and what is destroying us.”

by Tim Condon October 2, 2011

From Victor Davis Hanson, an author and University of California professor of classics: "Redistribution of wealth rather than emphasis on its creation is surely a symptom aging societies…A  new entitlement in a matter of minutes becomes an institutionalized right whose withdrawal causes far more anguish than its prior nonexistence….But as we see now in postmodern America…the […]

“The corrupt alliance of money and political power.”

by Tim Condon March 22, 2011

Yesterday? Robber barons who used money to buy politicians and destroy competition. Today? Robber baron public employee unions who use money to buy politicians and screw the taxpayers. Like I said, I like this guy Bill Whittle. Makes a lot of sense. It’s nice to hear about the self-organizing Third Wave building in opposition to […]

Milton Friedman on Why the Democrats Tried to Fiscally Destroy New Hampshire

by Tim Condon March 21, 2011

I just ran across this old interview of the sainted Milton Friedman. Couldn’t resist sharing it. As for the Democrats spending New Hampshire into a historically unprecedented $900 million budget deficit (and thus essentially bankrupting the state)?

by Rick Olson February 26, 2011

There were a lot of bills heard this week in Concord…. And there was much public comment that followed… Portions of which were outright lies and confabulation.

Jefferson and the Koran…

by Tom December 27, 2010

In 2007, newly elected US Representative Keith Ellison (DFL-MN), used a Koran in his swearing-in reenactment, instead of a Bible.  A classic Obama-adoring, Pelosi-Progressive minion, Ellison had once defended Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam (even helping to organize the Minnesota contingent of the "Million Man March"), but later backtracked, was raised Catholic in Detroit, […]
