Notable Quote – Frank J Fleming

by Skip March 7, 2018

“Difference between Nazi and Communist is when you say how horrible Nazis have been, they don’t say “Well, real Nazism has never been tried.” -Frank J. Fleming And we all know that true Communism has been as well – and failed every time because it fails to recognize true human nature.  Progressives (proto-communists) fail to […]

Notable Quote – Thomas Jefferson

by Skip March 3, 2018

The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be […]

Notable Quote – Bonchie

by Skip February 24, 2018

OK, tonite, I’ve got nuttin – but there’s a lotta folks out there that do.  From RedState, Bonchie points out that the Left’s claim to “right to be safe”, especially those of the teen survivors from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School murders that have gone full political, is sheer nonsense. Emphasis mine: ******************** There […]

Notable Quote – Jeffrey Folks

by Skip February 24, 2018

A long quote on the heart of Liberalism and why they hate us and the lives we have chosen for ourselves (emphasis mine). ************* Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do.  For liberals, the distinction between the “dumb masses” and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful.  Disdain for ordinary folks is not […]

Notable Quote – Kevin Williamson

by Skip February 23, 2018

“The difference between communism and socialism is that under socialism central planning ends with a gun in your face, whereas under communism central planning begins with a gun in your face.” –Kevin Williamson (writer, author) (H/T: The Truth About Guns) And Susan notes:

Notable Quote – Frederick Douglass

by Skip February 17, 2018

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those […]

Notable Quote – Samuel Adams

by Skip February 11, 2018

“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” — […]

Noteable Quote – Prof. Don Boudreaux

by Skip February 10, 2018

The banner headline in the print edition of today’s Wall Street Journal would have been more revealing and no less accurate had it stopped after the first three words. (H/T: Cafe Hayek)

Notable Quote – Kurt Schlichter

by Skip February 9, 2018

…So, the Washington Post says that Donald Trump wants to honor the military with a parade, which the Trump-haters inform us is the worst thing that ever was because it’s Donald Trump who wants to honor the military with a parade. The very day the Democrats decided that they should make fun of Trump’s physical […]

Notable Quote – Mike Adams

by Skip February 6, 2018

…Put simply, the pro-abortion choice advocate is usually a secularist who believes that human beings are the ones charged with assigning value to other humans. In other words, they think our rights come from man rather than God. This position creates a necessary tension with one of the secularist’s other professed values. Christians need to […]

Notable Quote – Patricia McCarthy

by Skip January 31, 2018

Emphasis mine: The Democrats loathe the tax reform that has kick-started the American economy. They abhor the return of American manufacturing and the bonuses so many companies have doled out to their employees. It was not so long ago that Obama essentially swore that “those jobs are never coming back.” “Crumbs,” billionaire Pelosi called their […]

Notable Quote – David French

by Skip January 24, 2018

Emphasis mine: …As soon as I read these words, I was transported back to a moment during my one appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. Joy Behar and Maher lamented that Democrats were “too nice.” They’re echoing a common (though certainly not universal) refrain on the left. Progressives see themselves as tolerant, open-minded, and […]

Notable Quote – Sarah Hoyt

by Skip January 15, 2018

Imagine my shock when I found out that the pussy-hat brigade was planning yet another “woman’s march” to protest the anniversary of the inauguration of our lawfully elected president. No, seriously, you could have knocked me down with a feather [sarcasm], I was that surprised. I mean, after all, a movement that started off protesting […]

Notable Quote- Richard Bledsoe

by Skip January 9, 2018

A great definition of “Social Justice”: “Social Justice” claims to be about fairness, which is a highly desirable outcome. But the term is a manipulative Newspeak euphemism for envy, revenge and oppression.  What social justice actually does is crush people into group identities which have been assigned favored and non-favored status by  power hungry establishment […]

Notable Quote – Randy Barnett

by Skip December 30, 2017

As Madison predicted, the greatest danger to the liberties of the people lies where the greatest power resides, which in a republic is in the majority of the people.  By harnessing the powers of the majority, the progressives were able to overcome the barriers of the Republican Constitution. Having breached those barriers, however, progressives then […]

Notable Quote – Keven Williamson

by Skip December 18, 2017

Nobody in Washington understands what it takes to make an iPhone or a pound of upland cotton, but they do know how to get in the way, how to hold up one hand and say “No!” while holding out the other hand and saying “Pay!” There are a few necessary conditions for prosperity: peace, property […]

Notable Quote – James Madison

by Skip December 17, 2017

Here is Madison’s first draft of the Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, a well-armed and well-regulated militia being the best security of a free country; but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person.” Hmm, perhaps the […]

Notable Quote – James Coolidge Carter

by Skip December 11, 2017

This power [of the state] operating externally protects society against its enemies; its function in its internal operation is to ensure the enforcement of law, that is of custom, and, so long as it confines itself to its true province, to make still more clear those boundary lines of individual action the observance of which […]

Notable Quote – F.A. Hayek

by Skip December 9, 2017

That we should foreswear all principles or “isms” in order to achieve greater mastery over fate is even now proclaimed as the new wisdom of our age…. If I am not mistaken, this fashionable contempt for “ideology” or for all general principles or “isms” is a characteristic attitude of disillusioned socialists who, because they have […]

Notable Quote – Chan Eddy

by Skip December 4, 2017

On the Cultural Marxism that is known as “diversity”: All of the crap about ‘diversity”, be it cultural/racial/sexual and the whole list of other ‘diverse’ pigeonholes the Progressives have created, has been pushed so hard as a means of tearing people apart by making everyone a victim, except for white heterosexual males of course. We […]

Notable Quote – Will and Ariel Durant

by Skip November 25, 2017

“Out of every hundred new ideas ninety-nine or more will probably be inferior to the traditional responses which they propose to replace. No one man, however brilliant or well-informed, can come in one lifetime to such fullness of understanding as to safely judge and dismiss the customs or institutions of his society, for those are […]

Notable Quote – Prof. Victor Davis Hanson

by Skip November 22, 2017

“So what drives deplorablism? It is not so much an ideological or even political movement as it is a spiritual and psychological frame of mind that is fed up with hypocrisies of the proverbial establishment, bicoastal cultural elites, and the deep administrative state.” –Prof Victor Davis Hanson (History professor, author, speaker) (H/T: Instapundit)

Notable Quote – Patrick McLaughlin, Matt Mitchell, Anne Philpot

by Skip November 14, 2017

Occupational licensing is ostensibly intended to protect the public from unsafe and low-quality service, but there is little evidence this intention is realized. Rather, there is a growing consensus among economists that these rules serve to protect incumbent providers from competition by creating barriers for new entrants that lead to higher prices for consumers. – […]

Notable Quote – Mark Steyn

by Skip November 11, 2017

“Americans and other Westerners who want their families to enjoy the blessings of life in a free society should understand that the life we’ve led since 1945 in the Western world is very rare in human history. Our children are unlikely to enjoy anything so placid, and may well spend their adult years in an […]

by Skip November 5, 2017

(video after the jump) I implore you to please consider my above testimony on behalf of the innocent life growing in the womb, and the vulnerable men and women considering an abortion. But if you will also consider in your deliberations regarding H.R.490 the last time in American history that we were faced with hard […]

Notable Quote – F.A. Hayek

by Skip October 28, 2017

It should be remembered that long before government entered those fields, many of the generally recognized collective needs were met by the efforts of the public-spirited individuals or groups providing means for public purposes which they regarded as important. Public education and public hospitals, libraries and museums, theatres and parks, were not first created by […]

Notable Quote – Mark Bauerlein

by Skip October 25, 2017

On Senator McCain’s Trump bashing (emphasis mine): Because of you, they think, we got identity-politician Sonia Sotomayor on the Supreme Court, not another Neil Gorsuch-type justice instead. We had to read steady reports of “the emerging Democratic majority,” which told us our days were numbered, these conservatives fume. When we voiced other beliefs, cowering Republicans handed us the condescending, […]

Notable Quote – Michael Barone

by Skip October 21, 2017

The second of Trump’s actions was his Oct. 12 statement that he would suspend cost-sharing reduction payments to health insurance companies. The Obama administration had been making CSR payments since 2014 even though Obamacare’s Section 1401 does not appropriate the money for the payments authorized in Section 1402. This was blatantly unconstitutional. “No Money shall […]

Notable Quote – Cicero

by Skip October 15, 2017

“It is human nature that what starts as gratitude, becomes dependency and ends as entitlement.” -Cicero Hey, instead of overdosing on “self-esteem”, can we get schools to push gratitude instead of cutting out the middlemen and gong right to entitlement? (H/T: Watts Up With That)

Notable Quote – President James Garfield

by Skip October 13, 2017

Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national […]
