Blogline of the Day – because Republican support of Amnesty may have predictable results

by Skip January 16, 2014

If the GOP wants to jumpstart a National 3rd Party movement for Conservatives. . . . “Because as Presidents Romney & McCain not to mention Senator Brown can tell you, there is no precedent for the base staying home in a critical election when the leadership pisses them off.” – Glenn Reynolds + DaTechGuy (Pete […]

Thumbnail image for Immigration Polls Quoted By Democrats…

Everything you need to know about Democrats and immigration, from Ann Coulter…(emphasis mine) Most immigration polls are variations on the one taken by the liberal Brookings Institution last March. Although it has been endlessly cited for allegedly showing that a majority of Americans support amnesty, the poll never asked about amnesty, or any real policy. […]

Data Point – Disconnect

by Skip December 17, 2013

It seems that what is important to the American people is NOT important to the Politicians in DC: All we seem to hear from the Lefty pols in DC is that Income Inequality (“Gap between rich and poor”) is the Number One problem.  And now we hear, in conjunction with Lefty pols, from the Righty […]

by Skip September 11, 2013

“The Tea Party has had it with Republican leaders, abandoning the GOP in stunning numbers at a time when mainstream leaders are arguing for immigration reform and support for an attack on Syria.

by Skip July 28, 2013

Heh!  We Groksters can pop up almost anywhere and at anytime and Grokster Don was at the PBVRC event (unbeknownest to Jim). Since Jim was on GrokTALK! yesterday, and with the Pemi-Baker talk as well, it seems that Jim would like some “clarification time” – we can do that!  Here is his first attempt in […]

Notable Quote: Theodore Roosevelt On Immigrants

by Mike July 8, 2013

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birthplace or […]

TREY GOWDY (R-S.C.): Well, I was moved, almost to the point of tears, by Senator Schumer’s concern for the future prospects of the Republican Party, but we’re going to not take his advice.

by Skip June 24, 2013

Now that Grokster Susan has outlined that you have voted to limit debate on “new and devolved” Schumer Open-Border Immigration bill, it may be too late to note that this is turning into yet another “We have to pass the bill to see what is in it”.  With almost a total rewrite of the original […]

Data Point – Unemployment vs Labor Market Participation

by Skip June 18, 2013

If Obama is the LightBringer, how about shedding a bit of light on those workers His economy has forgotten?  Oh yeah – he wants to bring in millions more illegal-to-legal-by-power-of-His-Word into this country.  Wonder what all those Americans-of-the-red-line (mostly, the lower skilled American worker that will have all that much harder of a time competing […]

Immigration and the Market Economy

by Steve MacDonald June 18, 2013

Dr. Thomas Sowell makes a point that should seem obvious to any pro-market economy Republican… Farmers may wish for more farm workers, just as any of us may wish for anything we would like to have. But that is wholly different from thinking that some third party should define what we desire as a “need,” […]

Gang Of 5 -Back Out to The Immigration Reform Wood Shed…One More Time.

by Steve MacDonald June 15, 2013

The only think I dislike more than having a progressive Democrat try to sell me their stupid narrative is when a progressive Republican tries it.  And that is exactly what the Gang of 5 was doing when they sent their pro-immigration bill op-ed to the Laconia Daily Sun.  (Turning us from “not a gun blog” […]

Blogline of the Day: ” the Lindsey Graham of the Tea Party”

by Skip June 13, 2013

Heh!  From Powerline, speaking on Rubio’s change JUST before the vote from “We secure the border first” to “All you illegals become legal first off”: For many years, I’ve been referring to Lindsey Graham as the “Arlen Specter of the South.” The idea is that, although Graham isn’t as bad as Specter was, he’s the […]

Oh Kelly?? About your upcoming Immigration vote – Part 2

by Skip June 11, 2013

Kelly, another question for you.  First, the background (just in case the actual whole bill has not yet been read, emphasis mine): Under the existing Senate immigration bill, immigrants who have been in the United States illegally can obtain a provisional legal status after paying fines and meeting certain preconditions. But this population would have […]

A quick retort to Joe “two shotgun shell” Biden – no, it isn’t about “dignity”

by Skip May 9, 2013

From Big Government, we have these pithy words from Vice President Joe Biden: There are a lot of tough decisions that have to be made. In some countries, that means, as we say in this country, that the elites have to pay their fair share, pay for the police in the streets and the basic […]

Concentrate on Solutions. It’s a Win-Win situation.

by Steve MacDonald May 6, 2013

This has been around a bit, and I can’t seem to find any evidence that it is not from Larry the Cable guy, and it made me laugh, so here you go.

We let Democrats define the terms of our defeat

by Carolyn November 13, 2012

When Democrats set the terms of the 2012 campaign for state and federal offices, Republican leaders blew their horns about jobs and the economy and counted on their position of strength and the glaring weaknesses in their enemy’s lines to secure victory. Republicans lost because they forgot to tell the troops about the Democratic weaknesses. […]

Do Democrats Now Love The Chamber Of Commerce?

by Steve MacDonald June 16, 2011

Remember when the Chamber of Commerce (C of C) was the lefts whipping boy? They were evil capitalists using money from “outside the country” to affect their selfish policy agenda- So what do those same leftists have to say about that same Chamber of Commerce (presumably with the same funding) leading the charge to prevent the enforcement of e-verify?
