US Chamber of Commerce ain’t showing love on Jeanne Shaheen for her Obamacare vote

by Skip September 20, 2014

And rightly so – she has done NOTHING except for taking choice away from us, the citizens, and moving that choice to the Ruling Class in Congress.  She started to show her “I’m smarter than you” when she got her SB711 passed and it immediately reduced our choices from over a couple of dozen providers […]

The Obama Store ( a website that unlike the Obamacare site works quite well) is having a 40% off sale.  If only they’d try that with the Federal budget we’d be getting somewhere… Showcased front page items include an ‘Organizer in Training’ onesie for $17.50. Shouldn’t that read “Lucky to be alive?” Or how about, “Thanks […]

  Ace of Spades has a great query with regard to the left and their so-called superior social-consciousness narrative.   The high and mighty Nanny-Staters are always appealing to everyone to volunteer time or money to their local (see also global) “community.” There have been a lot of claims that Obama supporters would pledge to give […]

Richard Epstein has a thought on Obama’s dithering

by Skip September 16, 2014

And it all stems from Obama’s worldview and where America fits into it; the problem of ISIS brings it into focus again: The Obama personal hesitation stems, unfortunately, from reasons unrelated to the military and political issues. Part of his problem is that he cannot bring himself to acknowledge that he was wrong to oppose […]

It is a suitable whipping boy when you need it, and a laxative when you want it… In a May 2013 speech to a military audience at the National Defense University, Mr. Obama portrayed the law (President Bush’s Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution in 2001) as dated and as a potential blank check […]

Rand Paul at Generation Opportunity / NH: First Executive Order? Revoke the previous 8 years worth

by Skip September 12, 2014

Well, that would be a good start.  In fact, it shouldn’t even be controversial – this should be a given for pretty much the Republican President next elected in 2016 given how much Obama has pushed the boundaries of Executive Imperialship (putting both Bush II and Nixon to shame).  Roll it back should be heard […]

As some of us alluded to the other week, it’s time for the Golfer in Chief to hang up his putter and concentrate on his duties—drive one down the figurative fairway of national security and interest for a change. National security is not a partisan issue, at least it shouldn’t be, so it should be […]

The Obama Administration is convinced that their latest planned regulatory regime for everyday appliances will put more money in people’s pockets by forcing changes meant to reduce the cost of operating them. People who can’t afford a car do save an awful lot of money on gas.  I suppose we could apply this same thinking […]

One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess. Despite TV pundits who say that public opinion polls show Barack Obama is in trouble, the president is not in the […]

by Steve MacDonald August 24, 2014

The terrorists wanted $132 Million dollars and (most likley) more Gitmo detainees. On November 26, 2013, the Foley family was told by IS militants demanded $132 million and the release of unspecified prisoners in American captivity in exchange for James Foley, the Global Post revealed. That negotiation proved unsuccessful, and there was no communication between […]
