DC Republicans caved: talking “Limited Govt” but giving up on “Unlimited Spending”

by Skip February 12, 2014

What are we doing? Why are the leaders of our party—the party that is supposed to stand for balanced budgets and fiscal sanity—giving up on the fight? Why did our party’s leadership essentially caucus with the Democrats in order to work against us? 2010 was the year that the TEA Party fed furor over the […]

I would be a hypocrite if I did NOT post this about NH State Senator Jeb Bradley

by Skip February 9, 2014

It’s been a long day and I am just getting to listen to WMUR’s Close Up.  Our official motto is: Spank’em when they’re wrong and Thank’em when they’re right. Bradley is right and I thank him, when he said he’s put a bill in to stem the leaks in the present Highway Fund that allows […]

I got little tonite ‘cept a quick thought on the DC Republicans returning a victory to Customer Service

by Skip December 10, 2013

…and seeing a beaming Harry Reid and Obama on the other side of the counter.  After all, by not fighting hard and not throwing sand into the gear works, Democrats have now flipped the ideological bent of the DC Court of Appeals with Reid’s nuking of the filibuster – Obama will probably not have to […]

Data Point – deficit, illustrated

by Skip October 21, 2013

I don’t care what side of the aisle you’re on – unless you are a very committed Socialist that wants America to collapse entirely (to give you a chance of rebuilding it in a Socialist society), this ought to be having you say “Oh Crap!”: Yet when a conservative hesitates before raising the debt ceiling, […]

Quick Thought: “All your money belongs to us!”

by Skip October 15, 2013

Once again, running behind!  This Sunday’s Meet The Press had this gaffe (accidentally telling the truth) said by Senator Dick Durban (Progressive -Il): “…for goodness sake, we have a tax code that takes out $1.3 Trillion out of the economy, out of the Treasury I should say, each year and in that we can’t find […]

How your public servants view your money – The Fourth Quarter!

by Skip July 28, 2013

To be honest, this happens in the private sector too – end of the fiscal quarter.  The difference, however, is that the private sector is limited by that dreaded “profit motive” – which puts a lid on spending.  Public Sector – I have watched it at the local level, the country level, the State level […]

FacePalm moment: why didn’t *I* think of this!

by Skip July 15, 2013

The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — (…) And those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account — to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day — because only […]

Well, given the performance of the former NH Congressmen, can’t say I blame him

by Skip May 22, 2013

By that, we supposedly put two Republican mens’ butts into US House Representatives chairs with one and only one main major mission – cut the spending.  Each time a Continuing Resolution showed up that could have stopped the national madness that has been adding to the National debt, they folded on their promises and folded […]

Lunatics? To NOT spend more than what the US can repay?

by Skip January 4, 2013

$16 Trillion for our national debt.  A whole ton of money, which I’m not entirely sure that IF (and that is a mighty BIG IF) our CongressCritters and President were truly serious about our financial affairs, we could pay back in any kind of reasonable time frame.  But actions to date have proven that Obama […]

An indictment of America’s political class

by Tim Condon December 22, 2012

Bill Whittle speaking on America’s current political leadership: “The stockpile of wealth that it has taken over 200 years to accumulate has been spent. The miserable, unserious, criminally negligent, incompetent, immoral, reprehensible, traitorous, swine have spent every last gold coin in America’s former mountain of wealth. And they haven’t stopped.” From Afterburner. Well. Worth. Watching.

Surprise! Real U.S. national debt is $86.8 trillion.

by Tim Condon December 3, 2012

I swear. The Wall Street Journal has better letters-to-the-editor than any other newspaper. Sometimes they educate all by themselves. For instance, here are comments on a piece about our real national debt being over $85 TRILLION, not the measly $16 trillion obediently reported by the media: From George Leef in Raleigh, North Carolina:

Its Time to Ignore Liberal Bullying

by Don October 27, 2011

Democrats have gotten used to getting their way by name calling and intimidating their opponents. They have used these techniques to stifle opposition to their wasteful, ruinous, and often counter-productive programs. Finally, many Americans have had enough of it.
Only the TEA Party is committed to restoring our country’s fiscal health. We are an obstacle to the major political parties “go along to get along” ways. The TEA Party is slandered and viciously attacked because we threaten the power of the current political establishment and their mutually supporting special interest groups.
