Yawn and yawn again.  As we have intimated before, some of our best (and snarkiest!) conversation are not here on GraniteGrok but in our (closed) email group of Groksters.  Occasionally, some of it comes out – and here is one of them as I pretty much took exception to the message of Steve’s post:  US […]

The bigger issue of dealing with a spending bill remains contentious but sometimes it helps to make a statement with a vote tied to it, and this was that, if noting else.  And hey, we’ve got them on record, right?  Add to that the multi-state lawsuit against Obama, and you’ve got some welcome push-back on […]

Obamacare – once again, the TEA Party was right!

by Skip November 30, 2014

You betcha!  One of the main complaints of the TEA Party was that the Federal Government should not be in charge our healthcare.  That it should not be trying to take over and socialize 1/6th of our economy simply because: Government! Top down, gazillion page law and resulting regulations would do NOTHING to lower costs. […]

Obamacare is in force and the big corporations that were in Crony Capitalism mode are slowly understanding that the only person that matters is Obama.  Deals struck with him, like all of his campaign promises, have expiration dates.  Matters not whether much money and efforts have been expended on his behalf earlier – you’re no […]

Breaking: no indictment for Ferguson, MO Police Officer Darren Wilson

by Skip November 24, 2014

Well, what will happen now in Ferguson?  I predict there will be rioting all over.  Just in watching the press conference, there were already questions whose main premise was “What, no justice for this black boy” with shades of “white power”? The only justice these people were seeking had already been predetermined months ago, sans […]

Figure this one out. The official U.S. unemployment rate has indeed fallen steadily during the past few years, but the economic recovery has created the fewest jobs relative to the previous employment peak of any prior recovery.

A report released on Friday got Democrats doing a happy dance over Benghazi.  (For Ann Kuster supporters, that’s a city in Libya).  The report has been spun to clear the CIA and White House of deliberately misleading the public.  So it looks like four Americans were murdered by terrorists because the White House, State, and […]

Schoolhouse Rock is Dead

by Tom November 23, 2014

Back in the early 1970’s, before Liberals in Hollywood and the mainstream media completely destroyed this country, we saw these little cartoon vignettes on Saturday morning television, called “Schoolhouse Rock”.

Choom Over Paradise:
Life Imitates Art; Obama Imitates Dictator

In the ancient movie, Moon over Parador, Richard Dreyfus pretended to be a dictator in order to shore up a failing regime.

Obama just removed “deportation” from the Federal dictionary

by Skip November 21, 2014

Jim Geraghty over at the Campaign Spot has a great observation: Perhaps the most galling line in last night’s speech: I know some of the critics of this action call it amnesty. Well, it’s not.
