Progressives

Anyone?

by Susan Olsen February 16, 2018

Which Democrat will be the first to call for the confiscation and banning of guns? Or do they only just need one more new law?

HB1668 – Uber-Progressive Timothy Horrigan proud to be a Govt Nanny and supplant parental choices

by Skip February 15, 2018

And he said this all with a smiley smirk on his face (WMUR.com has the video but won’t allow embedding) as I watched the clip last night.  He’s rather proud of himself as portraying himself as a Nanny with his bill, HB 1668 (posted after the jump), as “the protector of kids!” (reformatted, aggregated, emphasis […]

In New Hampshire, Only the Illusion of GOP Control of State Government

by Op-Ed February 10, 2018

By Ed Mosca On paper, the GOP controls every branch of State government in New Hampshire except the judiciary. But the reality is that in the aggregate the State has moved leftward despite nominal GOP control of the political branches. I discussed how Governor Sununu has moved the State leftward in this post, but there is […]

And this guy wants to be an elected Legislator? Democrat Dick Devens shows his ignorance on the Electoral College

by Skip February 8, 2018

So, because Dick Devens hasn’t understood, can’t understand, and seemingly never will, he wants to change a vital part of our Representative Republic to take away yet another Check and Balance that was DESIGNED to have checks and balances.  So because he doesn’t understand something, he wants it simplified; even if he doesn’t understand the […]

Do Modern Democrats Vote for Anything That Will Make Government Smaller?

by Steve MacDonald February 8, 2018

Decriminalizing marijuana sounds like is a liberty issue. Not so for Democrats. Addressing the opioid epidemic is sold as an issue of compassion, but to the professional left, it is an opportunity. Sex trafficking, repackaged and sold as a matter of freedom under the banner of legalized prostitution is not about freedom at all. And the Progressive obsession […]

Part 2 – And then there are other kinds of trolls. Like Donna Sawyer from Windham

by Skip February 6, 2018

Yep, other kinds of trolls – back to Donna Sawyer from Windham NH. Again, it is not enough to have the discussions or arguments – they view us as “societal infidels” (just like militant Islam – just sideways) and must be silenced, put down, or destroyed.  Thus, her opening salvo about our affiliations and about […]

BlogQuestion of the Day – Gee, I thought Feminism was supposed to be “inclusive”

by Skip January 28, 2018

THINK OF THEM AS THE LADIES’ AUXILIARY FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND YOU WON’T GO FAR WRONG: Why won’t liberal feminists defend Nikki Haley and Melania Trump? And Instapundit was happy to furnish the answer, too: It’s always been about power, not about women. Well, it’s really only about PROGRESSIVE women and only THEIR power – the […]

Notable Quote – David French

by Skip January 24, 2018

Emphasis mine: …As soon as I read these words, I was transported back to a moment during my one appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. Joy Behar and Maher lamented that Democrats were “too nice.” They’re echoing a common (though certainly not universal) refrain on the left. Progressives see themselves as tolerant, open-minded, and […]

“Non-partisan” – Seriously, Seacoast Online?? You actually want us to believe you?

by Skip January 23, 2018

Seacoast progressives meet to set agenda PORTSMOUTH – More than a hundred Seacoast progressives turned out for an informational session on the upcoming legislative agenda and mid-term elections Thursday night at the Unitarian-Universalist South Church.

Notable Quote – Randy Barnett

by Skip December 30, 2017

As Madison predicted, the greatest danger to the liberties of the people lies where the greatest power resides, which in a republic is in the majority of the people.  By harnessing the powers of the majority, the progressives were able to overcome the barriers of the Republican Constitution. Having breached those barriers, however, progressives then […]

Notable Quote – James Madison

by Skip December 17, 2017

Here is Madison’s first draft of the Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, a well-armed and well-regulated militia being the best security of a free country; but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person.” Hmm, perhaps the […]

War on Christmas – how can she say that “Jingle Bells” isn’t related to Christmas

by Skip December 17, 2017

EVERYTHING to Progressives/Leftist/Socialist HAS to be either indirectly racist or outright racist.  And if it isn’t, they’ll make sure that those invisible, unconscious, racist dots get connected somehow and some way. Boston University theatre professor Kyna Hamill recently argued in a research paper that the popular Christmas song has racist origins. “The legacy of ‘Jingle Bells’ is one where […]

Breaking News: Snowflakes Don’t Like Being Called Snowflakes

by Steve MacDonald December 8, 2017

Recent research has uncovered another one of those ‘water is wet’ discoveries. A new survey by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 percent of 16 to 24-year-olds believe the term “snowflake” is unfairly applied to millennials. 74 percent of respondents took it a step farther, arguing that they believe the use of the label could have a negative […]

The Union Leader Shills for Left-Leaning “No Labels”

by Steve MacDonald December 1, 2017

In a November 29th staff editorial, the Union Leader, while trying to poke New Hampshire’s All Gurl Kongressional Delegation, lent a hand and a good word to No Labels, a left-wing group pretending to be centrist. None of the four members of New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation has yet joined the Problem Solvers Caucus. There are other ways to […]

Liberals trashing Thanksgiving – the “let’s pick a fight” edition

by Skip November 24, 2017

A few assorted posts in surfing where Progressives are just out to ruin some families’ Thanksgiving – just because they can.  And I bet, will: You Should Get Drunk and Cause a Scene Today Are you avoiding your family right now? So desperate to escape them that you’re sitting in the bathroom reading a productivity […]

Don’t like Judge Moore (and now Democrat Al Franken) sexual predatorship? Repeal the 17th Amendment

by Skip November 16, 2017

The 17th Amendment was that other cruddy idea (the other being the establishment of a national income tax) by Progressive Socialists at the beginning of the last century of no longer having the various State Legislative branches elect Senators to send to Washington to represent the States’ concerns and issues in our Federal system. Their […]

by Skip October 10, 2017

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the […]

Where ‘Indigenous Peoples’ Day Leads and Other Progressive Plots

by Steve MacDonald October 9, 2017

So Zandra-Rice Hawkins LIES about the end game of gun control – confiscation

by Skip October 8, 2017

Boy, does this segue well from my previous post about Progressives lying in “the means justifies the end”. I DVR’d WMUR’s CLOSEUP as I usually do and I know for a fact that the anti-gunners DO want a complete confiscation of any and all civilian firearms: “If I could have banned them all – ‘Mr. […]

So much for the Left’s vaunted ideal of “inclusiveness”, eh?

by Skip September 30, 2017

That’s all we seem to hear about from Progressives that they want and desire a more “inclusive” society. As you can see, at least on this campus, “inclusive” really means exclusive – we will include anyone that is just like us but exclude “The Others”.  Once again, we see the hypocrisy of the Left and […]

Notable Quote – Jonathan Adler

by Skip September 28, 2017

“However well-intentioned or justified a given protest may be, when political protests occur during the national anthem, many Americans see a defacement of something sacred — and this message completely overshadows the intended content of the protests. As experienced and understood by many, the protesters were not merely seeking to advance their own cause; they […]

Notable Quote – John P. Warren

by Skip September 11, 2017

…Those imperfections are key to our continual search for true north beneath all the stars of good and evil. Those who forced our birth in 1776, carried with them bigotry and brutality, class and criminality. Yet, propelled as they were by a natural law embedded within them by an Almighty God, they struggled toward that […]

Denouncing the Denouncers

by Steve MacDonald August 27, 2017

Everyone is lining up to denounce white supremacists so why not me. I denounce white supremacists. I also denounce black supremacists, Latino supremacists, feminist supremacists, gay supremacists, and anti-fascist supremacists who are actually fascists using violence in pursuit of ideological supremacy. Since I’m in a denouncing mood, it would be appropriate to denounce the denouncers who […]

Social Justice Activists Treat Each Other Like Crap

The deliberate division of human beings into oppressed groups and sub groups of ‘victims’ has had a predictable outcome. Social Justice long-division does not end in tolerance.
