This is Democrat Donna Soucy’s version of “Diversity”?

by Skip August 9, 2018

Or as one wag put it “How’d that white guy sneak in?”.  These kinds of photographs are staged – it is part of the “inside-baseball”, “behind the curtains” kinds of political stagecraft that a campaign does all the time.  You think that all those people in the stands at a rally are chosen at random?  […]

Democrats Aren’t too Bright when it comes to History

by Kimberly Morin October 27, 2015

Or is it the intentional false narrative to make women believe that they are not paid equally? Democrats seem to like telling women they are of lesser value than men. What does that say about THEM? Feel free to look at the ‘Equal Pay Act‘ for your very own self. Give a Democrat a history lesson. […]

Notable Quote – DrewM

by Susan Olsen April 3, 2015

“But hey, Republicans are just throwing so-cons overboard because doing so will make them popular with other voters, right? Er, about that. Fiscal-cons and social-cons used to be in an uneasy alliance within the GOP. I think we are growing into a more comfortable alliance in telling Republicans to frak off.” Via

A sincere apology or an F.U. Moment from Walt Havenstein to moi?

by Skip September 25, 2014

This relates back to this story (first here,  commentary from a prior Marine here, deflection here, more commentary from prior Army here, his views on the 9/12 Project and TEA Party here, the “no apology” here, more commentary here, and back to me here).  It brings up a question, a serious question: If it was so […]

Notice that NH State Senator Chuck Morse can’t even bring himself to say what he is doing?

by Skip February 9, 2014

Two simple words that would have given a very clear message as to what this Republican is doing – can you catch what those two words are? (H/T: RLCNH) OK, if you missed them, here’s the transcript that I just did (and you really want to read the commentary too):

Republican Gerbils and Amnesty

by Susan Olsen August 9, 2013

This would be funny if it weren’t so terribly true.  Via Ace: “…they are determined to do this. It’s like I say about gerbils. Gerbils will always get out of their cages because all they do is plot 14 hours per day how to get out of the cage. They have no other thoughts. They […]

Gratuitous Liberal Cowardice

by Rick Olson March 25, 2013

Obama Immigration Policy, Sans Consequences?

by Rick Olson June 18, 2012

“Amnesty is a big billboard, a flashing billboard, to the rest of the world that we don’t really mean our immigration law.”  —Richard Lamm One of the realities of life is having consequences  arising from the choices of others.

Proud of President Obama

by Don October 4, 2011

I would have been prouder still of President Obama if he didn’t use our soldiers as political pawns. Because the Democrat controlled Senate has refused to pass a budget for more than two years, government funding is being authorized by continuing resolutions. When Republicans tried to rein in President Obama’s irresponsible spending demands, President Obama threatened a government shutdown and the withholding of salary, disability and death benefits, and other payments to our soldiers, even those in combat with dependent families.
I guess soldiers shouldn’t feel singled out since President Obama also threatened to have social security payments withheld. Apparently payments for foreign aid, bureaucrats, subsidies, bailouts, pork barrel spending, and President Obama’s travel, etc., are all higher priority to President Obama than paying our soldiers and seniors.

Left Wing Hyporcisy Must Die!

by Steve MacDonald September 7, 2011

Closer to home we could have the New Hampshire Democrat Party Must Die. (I know for a fact they’ll never seriously object to the current game and as such the entire state party must be responsible for failing to do so until they all denounce it–their rules.) Terie Norelli, Sylvia Larsen, John Lynch, and Kathy Sullivan, all gore covered, relentless, brain eating, mindless …actually wait.
