Private Property

Are you listening, NH Regional Planning Commissions and NH Water Commission? We GOT WATER!

by Skip December 13, 2013

Every single “crisis” (either real or man-made) always seems to be solvable ONLY with the introduction of a larger bureaucracy, more intrusive Government, and even more abusive intelligensia (are ya listening, NH Listens?) when it concerns the Right to Private Property.  After all, “it’s for the children” is the siren call for more collectivism and […]

A lesson from the First Thanksgiving

by Skip November 28, 2013

I like reading John Stossel as often he proclaims a down to earth message with common sense appeal.  In addition, what he talks about is grounded in results rather then an ideological background.  When I saw his column, so apropo for today, it does need to be reviewed. Why?  Allow me to inject a bit […]

Notable Quote – John Phillip Reid

by Skip November 10, 2013

Long before the era of the revolutionary controversy, the centrality of property to the definition of liberty, to the rule of law, and to constitutionalism had become established British legal dogma. John Brown, in one of the most widely read books of the day, detailed the decline of morals in Great Britain, yet found three […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

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 […]

Bureaucratic Child Abuse…?

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2013

The same bureaucratic group-think responsible for the long term suspensions of children playing with toy guns on private property, chewing pop-tarts, pointing pencils, playing make-believe (see list after the jump), is the same buraucratic mind-set that will be “manageing” your health care–and by extension your quality of life, your aging parents and grandparents lives, childrens […]

by Skip May 17, 2013

During an email conversation, I was emailed the NH Association of Regional Planning Commissions broad legislative support document – what the local RPCs want the towns and NH Legislature to do.  Again, I looked at what SB11 was supposed to do, compared that to what SB11 will allow planners to do, and looked at the […]

Oh yeah, let’s not forget about “They don’t need it” argument – the foundation for Redistribution

by Skip September 18, 2012

That’s another tenet of Liberalism / Regressivism Progressivism to go along with “You don’t do the right things with it” meme.  They look at the well to-do, the rich, and the uber-rich and think “we can take it because they won’t miss it and they don’t need it”.  Really?  You can take it because YOU […]

Blogosphere Line of the Day – on Greed

by Skip August 13, 2012

From Instapundit “A higher form of justice” translates as “give me the money regardless of the law.” “Greedy” means “you won’t give me what I want, just because it’s yours, not mine.” So Occupyish…yet from Sweden.  Or, the DNC / Obama Administration for that matter

GrokTV Event: GSPLPAC presents Rosa Koire on Agenda 21 – Parts 6 and 7

by Skip July 1, 2012

I’ll tell you, the more I hear about the subject, the thoughts of “are you serious”?  Yet, when I look at the example in Portland, Oregon where “sustainable development” is the end-all-be-all of urban planning, I start to think “mmmm, maybe there is something to this” (here, here, here, and here).  Skyrocketing housing costs have […]
