If President Obama can’t even manage the White House equal pay, how can he expect us to think he can manage the Country?

by Skip July 2, 2014

Social Justice, Social Justice, Social Justice – that’s all we hear from the Progressives now in control of the Federal Government.  Part of that “social justice” mantra has been wail after wail that men get paid more than women.  The President himself has pontificated through the years that Equal Pay MUST be the law and […]

Blog Headline of the Day – Irony lost on the Obama Administration

by Skip June 24, 2014

Courtesy of The Corner: Obama declare ‘Broader ISIS Foothold’ against U.S. Interests, ISIS Gains Broader Foothold Determined Weakness: I am now convinced that each and every foreign policy decision that Obama makes has one and only one purpose – to make the US less influential on the world stage.  Name one thing that President “Red […]

Obama’s Progressive Administration finally tells the truth – they are out to kill off fossil fuels of all types

by Skip June 17, 2014

Bill Maher: “Some people called it a war on coal. I hope it is a war on coal.

by Skip June 11, 2014

Early on in the fight against the government takeover of Health Care (Health Insurance/ObamaCare) the VA was frequently used as an example of what could inevitably happen.  While the VA hospitals are a great idea, in practice, they are like any other government-run entity.  The private sector could do much better for less.  And we […]

by Skip November 1, 2013

On the nature of Democrat cum Socialists (empahsis mine): ..Governments are only formed to ensure mutual protection of persons and property or…to oppress people and abuse property for the benefit of a ruling class. Laura Pantelakos, the Modern Democrat Party, and the Obama Administration are all governing as the latter.  They are more interested in […]

This “social justice” idiocy is supposed to promote “unit cohesion” – Not? Oh, that IS the point.

by Skip October 31, 2013

You know, this whole “social justice” thing is just Cultural Marxism wrapped up in Political Correctness. This is meant to do one thing and one thing only – install guilt into a vast majority of people have done nothing wrong.

An object lesson that shows why the Federal Government should stay out of local affairs.

by Skip October 27, 2013

In the middle of August (yeah, I keep doing other things), I noticed that a whole bunch of new street signage started showing up in my small neighborhood in my tiny hamlet.  They were that bright bright new color mandated by the Federal Government – not just that “it’s a new sign” bright but bright […]

Obama may have pushed far enough (be it from incompetence or planning)

by Skip October 9, 2013

From BLACKFIVE (emphasis mine): First, it was the order to close/block memorials – expending mucho dinero to protect memorials and monuments that – generally – are never protected. This is particularly disgusting when it comes to blocking the WWII memorial where flights of WWII vets are making a first and (most likely) last pilgrimage to […]

Data Point – Flat Lined

by Skip September 10, 2013

I disagree with the job creation number in the post (150,000 / month) needed to keep up with population expansion as the numbers I have read vary from 200,00 at a minimum up to 300,000.  But even at 150K, this ought to be a very sobering number that shows how poorly the Obama Administration has […]

Data Point – there a reason why unemployment is so low – and it ain’t a good one

by Skip August 30, 2013

“a 34 year low” – the ONLY way that the 7.4% unemployment rate exists is because of the way it is computed.  It is this low because the unemployed, underemployed, and “have just given up” are not in this particular measure that Government normally touts.  The important number, the REALLY important one, is how many […]

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 […]

The Zimmerman Trial Was Always About Stand Your Ground

by Steve MacDonald July 17, 2013

I started writing this as a comment to Skip’s post (here) but then realized it was too long. Stand Your Ground was never brought up at the Zimmerman trial but I think that was intentional.   It was never about Zimmerman.  It was always about Stand Your Ground and the left’s anti-gun agenda.  He’s just a […]

It’s been a while since folks have mentioned Baghdad Bob – the Iraqi Information Minister who seemingly, during the 2003 Iraq War, wanted to be an actor (and used Kevin Bacon’s character from Animal House as a model “ALL IS WELL!”) official spokesperson in the green uniform that defended Saddam Hussein.  The funniest time was […]
