by Steve MacDonald June 4, 2017

I was pondering the bubble of progressive thought–the things I do for you people. It’s a tiny bubble crowded with narrow-minded busybodies who need the force of government to get others to “believe” (this actually means forced compliance) what they believe. It occurred to me that we could use a word to define these pseudo-intellectual leftists that can […]

What’s in YOUR bonnet?

by Susan Olsen June 2, 2017

“The other thing about people in cults is they join from self-loathing. They hate themselves and seek to swap their hated individual identity with that of the group. It’s why they will savagely defend their group like a mother defending their young. It’s self-defense. The group is them and they are the group. Therefore, any […]

They say that Progressives refuse to learn from History – California is nothing if not Progressive

by Skip May 25, 2017

The States were to be labs of Democracy where others could learn from their mistakes.  Vermont, Colorado, Kentucky, Hawaii, Tennessee; all tried variations of the vaunted end-game of Progressives – universal healthcare – for if you control that, you control people.  Sorry, am not buying the argument that all they want to do is “help” […]

Notable Quote – Sheldon Richman

by Skip May 8, 2017

The tricky thing about separating church and state is that the state is a kind of church. –Sheldon Richman For Progressives, The State IS their religion and their God.  Where else do you think the phrase “every dollar is sacred” when discussion comes up about cutting the budget?  For them, it’s like taking money out […]

17 NH School Districts Have Embraced “Transgender” Movement. Who’s Next?

by Steve MacDonald May 4, 2017

On May 2nd, there was a House Party in Sandwich hosted by Freedom New Hampshire (not the town, the non-profit) “to grow support for statewide non-discrimination protections.” That’s a generic way of saying, advance the LGBT agenda through a so-called transgender rights movement. Two things you ought to know. First, transgenders already have non-discrimination protection under […]

Jessica Chastain: you have to give us free stuff – it’s for our RIGHTS!

by Skip April 19, 2017

Ahem, may I point out that women have received “free stuff” for centuries?  May I also point out that “Rights” have nothing to do with material means unless you are of the Socialist persuasion and have no idea of the difference between an entitlement and a true Right? Actually, the title of the piece at […]

But Trump is only doing what George Washington did? Do Progressives hate the Father of our country?

by Skip April 16, 2017

But of COURSE they do – down with the Patriarchy!  Besides, George “I can never tell a lie” Washington was nothing but an old white guy who owned slaves – we should wipe his name from every building, burn any book that holds him up as a shining example, and eliminate him because of his […]

News is again full of stories about Liberal/Progressives gone mad

by Don April 14, 2017

Some interesting recent news: Teachers prevented mass casualties by suspending five-year-old Caitlin Miller for making shooting motions with a crooked stick and four-year-old pre-school student Hunter Crowe for having a “shotgun bullet” (aka a fired 22 bullet shell casing) he got from his police officer grandfather. Note that while children can’t be taught “The Ten […]

And you still don’t think that Obama didn’t politically weaponize the IRS?

Raising Prices and Lefty Intellectual Inconsistency

by Scott Morales April 1, 2017

Ran across this on the interweb today and thought it a pithy summary of a lefty characteristic. The only problem I have with it is that it’s not just inconsistency, it’s also dishonesty.  They are dishonest. The left does not have principles that apply universally.  The only principle or lodestar  is answering affirmatively to the […]

Spoiled Pro-Socialist Liberals and Terrorized Venezuelans

by Scott Morales March 18, 2017

Watch spoiled, cosseted American liberals praise the joys of socialisms in the safe environs of the United States cities.  Continue to watch the people of Venezuela’s view of socialism and what it has wrought on their country from the hellish, brutish barrios.  Oh, and keep in mind that Venezuela adopted the so-called “Democratic Socialism”– the […]

This will get easier as the Left keeps taking their masks

by Skip February 21, 2017

Heh! Jeffrey Medford, a small-business owner in South Carolina, voted reluctantly for Donald Trump. As a conservative, he felt the need to choose the Republican. But some things are making him feel uncomfortable — parts of Mr. Trump’s travel ban, for example, and the recurring theme of his apparent affinity for Russia. Mr. Medford should […]

Epitomizing Left-Wing Zombie Opposition

by Steve MacDonald February 1, 2017

That’s right. They handed out pre-printed signs to whoever answered the Craigslist ad and had them fill in the name of the person they had to #Stop once they found out who that was. It didn’t matter who. If that does not epitomize the brain-dead, left-wing zombie protester and quantify the value of their mindless […]

The Crying Game

by Ed Naile February 1, 2017

The new pre-packaged chant the great temper-tantrum progressives are having is that President Trump “stole a Supreme Court Seat.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. In a landslide election, Hillary Rodham Clinton and George Soros – lost the seat. And probably two more, if we are lucky. I guess sour grapes are better than none.

“While walking to an inaugural ball, I heard shouts — and felt yolk run down my hair. I froze. Emily Post is silent on the proper way for a lady in a ball gown to respond to an aerial assault. I had to wing it. First, I yelled back. I had spent six years living here, […]

“Hillary’s Final Disgrace”

by Skip December 6, 2016

The Left are horrible losers (you can take that in any direction you want) and after this election we see that they will not stop in doing anything to gain the only thing they really care about (all other words otherwise to be dismissed summarily) is Power. Simple.  Just Power. And if they can’t HAVE […]

Hampshire College is Flying the American Flag Again (Begrudgingly)

by Steve MacDonald December 4, 2016

Hampshire College is flying the American flag again. Hampshire College, which had previously removed its American flag after President-elect Donald Trump’s victory on Election Day, has returned the flag to its usual position on campus. The flag went to half mast after Hillary lost, then was burned.  Rather than replace it and fly it properly the College […]

So Sununu is satisfied with a Socialist entitlement? Government – what can’t it do?

by Skip November 21, 2016

That’s what Democrats think, Chris Sununu.  You see, they have totally rejected the Founding Fathers philosophy that our Liberties are most protected when Government, constrained by our Constitutions, stay within the “negative liberties” – what Government CANNOT DO to you.  The flip side is the old European and Socialist model – Government exists to do […]

“Fight for $15” is about to prove what the real minimum wage is

by Skip November 21, 2016

We’ve all been blogging about the effort, spearheaded by a lot of folks who don’t believe someone’s money actually belongs to those that earned it, to organize the fast food industry to a minimum wage of $15/hour for flipping burgers.  Far above the economic worth of that actual job and believing that there would be […]

Progressives – shattered on the rocks of “there’s more than one world view”

by Skip November 11, 2016

You know why we Groksters are mirthily posting up all these stories about the Progressives / Liberals / Democrats?  OK, ok, it’s fun. But it is also important that we do so. They’re rediculous in their reactions (both the meltdowns and the rioting).  Just as Marine Col  Nathan R. Jessup, in “A Few Good Men” […]

Freaking out Liberals: how can so many people be on the “wrong side of history”?

by Skip November 9, 2016

Progressives – they often are wont to bring up one of the stupidest phrases ever conceived (but it IS a Progressive “tell” so when you hear it….):  The right side of history. It is used to divide by making themselves superior; THEY have made all the right decisions and have the right philosophy and the correct […]
