Taxes vs Personal Spending: shouldn’t this be flipped?

by Skip August 7, 2018

Is it moral to be paying more to Government than spending on your family? Reformatted, emphasis mine: America spends more on taxes than on food, clothing, and housing combined. A LOT more. Housing: $2.3 trillion Clothing: $0.4 trillion Food: $1.7 trillion TOTAL: $4.4 trillion Federal Taxes: $3.4 trillion State and Local Taxes: $1.8 trillion TOTAL: $5.2 […]

Funny, I never heard back from US Senator Elizabeth Warren when I emailed her back

by Skip July 26, 2018

333.  275.  185.  290.  124.  210. That’s my latest sampling of how many days it took the National Guard to federally recognize the promotions of its servicemembers after those promotions had already been fully approved by their state command.   Just to be clear: these officers start doing the work of their new rank the day […]

The First thing That Comes to Mind When Democrats Denounce Maxine Waters

by Steve MacDonald June 26, 2018

Yesterday I reported (again) on the lack of civility and false civility among far-left Democrats. The most recent examples are protesters driving Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of a restaurant followed by Maxine Waters suggesting the left make a habit of this anywhere they find members of Trump’s team. Nothing new, except perhaps the honesty about […]

One More Wack At Dartmouth and the Ruling Class Elite

by Steve MacDonald June 10, 2018

A recent survey of Dartmouth Students got ample attention from me here and here, but Jack Kerwick, writing at, combed through it here and I wanted to share his conclusion because it distills the noisy narratives down to a moment of clarity. In summary, the Dartmouth survey establishes the truth of three propositions: (1)Republican […]

NY Senate Advances Speech Suppression Bill Disguised As Anti-Bullying Legislation

by Steve MacDonald June 10, 2018

The New York State Senate, under cover of protecting under-eighteen year-olds from ‘cyberbullying’ have advanced a bill that presents the government with a far-reaching tool to silence a wide range of speech it decides has violated their law. I’ll let you explore Eugene Volokh’s examination of potential issues for speech suppression here, but I wanted […]

Quick Thought: HB 1319 – asked and answered

by Skip June 10, 2018

As to Gov. Chris “Supporting the Democrat Agenda Identity Group politics against the NH GOP” in signing HB1319, I was asked earlier today: Where do you stand? Answer:  It demands coerced speech and behavior from those that do not believe that a man can simply announce that he is a woman and MUST refer to […]

New Hampshire Is No Social Experiment – Thank You

by Ed Naile May 12, 2018

I know politicians often feel they must balance principals against results. Once elected (once) conservative candidates become more practical. They surrender the issues they ran for office on to the ability to get “things done” or to “save what they have won.” I the this entirely. It is a basic human instinct – except for liberals. […]

Has the Professional Left Silenced You? They Will if You Dare to Disagree

by Steve MacDonald May 1, 2018

Democrats don’t know what they don’t know and they only have themselves to blame. Why are so many Democrats shocked when a Republican is elected president? Because, as they themselves say, they “don’t know anyone” who voted for the Republican. The primary reason for this is the people in their life who voted for Donald […]

Antifa’s War On Some Women

by Steve MacDonald April 15, 2018

When the left tells you that women are a protected class, they are lying. Women who march in lockstep with the left’s narrow agenda are protected as long as they keep up. This is true for blacks, gays, trans, cis, Metrosexual-pajama-boys, bearded-Marxists, or any designer state of being manufactured by the liberal ministry of identity […]

GraniteGrok: Conservative? Check! ‘Grok: TEA Party? Check! Bill O’Brien supporters? Check! Mark Hounsell seeking out the ‘Grok as a platform? Hypocrite!

by Skip April 6, 2018

During the Womens’ Defense League of NH‘s annual Gun Rally, Mark Housell ( now FORMER candidate for US Congress in NH’s CD-1) actively sought me out (not hard to miss – ‘Grok hat on, camera in tow) almost as soon as a “late arrived) to have me do an interview.  We tried to do it right then but […]

FB Doodlings: “Katharine Gregg: Why can’t we give up our guns?” – Part 1

by Skip March 28, 2018

I am so behind on these kinds of “I comment here” and “commented there” type posts, so it’s now time to get a’marching. The question above was asked over at the Concord Monitor. I’ll give her props for outing herself that she’s terrified of these totally inanimate object, and turn on her for demanding the […]

They Don’t Just Want the Guns…

by Steve MacDonald March 28, 2018

After Parkland, Democrats feel like they can come out of the closet on gun control. Inside their bubble, the outside world changed. The complete and utter failure of every mechanism they promised would protect us without a right to self-defense failed. Their response to this failure is to claw at your rights, and openly demand […]

So, we’re turning over our Constitutional Rights to 13-17 year olds.

by Skip March 18, 2018

Why shouldn’t we give them control over foreign policy as well? After all, we are being told by the Progressive Left and anti-gunners that these children are smarter and wiser than their parents (heck, teachers have been saying the kids know more than the parents for YEARS!), right? Naw, this is just the Left taking […]

Notable Quote – Frank J Fleming

by Skip March 7, 2018

“Difference between Nazi and Communist is when you say how horrible Nazis have been, they don’t say “Well, real Nazism has never been tried.” -Frank J. Fleming And we all know that true Communism has been as well – and failed every time because it fails to recognize true human nature.  Progressives (proto-communists) fail to […]

Part 4 – And now to wrap up the Donna Sawyer from Windham troll story

“nice site you got there; would be a shame if something were to happen to it“ OK, I’m late on finishing this story – see Parts one, two, and three. To recap, just about the time that we put up a post –  Windham School Board Approves Unconstitutional “BATHROOM BILL” Policy – and as I said then, the […]

Granite State Progress: Leave Kids Helpless and Unprotected

by Steve MacDonald March 2, 2018

Nationally funded Progress Now’s local left-wing affiliate, Granite State Progress, is promoting an event on Facebook called ‘Keep Guns Out Of Schools.’ No, they don’t mean “keep criminals with guns” out of schools. In fact, they are advocating for precisely the opposite. They are rallying support for a floor amendment to SB 357 that would allow […]

Blogline of the Day – Progressives ALWAYS try to make political use of a tragedy to push their agenda

by Skip March 2, 2018

SO MUCH FOR THE NARRATIVE: Report: Parkland Shooter Did Not Use High Capacity Magazines. “The gunman used only 10-round magazines. The Parkland shooter did not use magazines larger than 10 rounds, but gun reform lobbyists are calling on lawmakers to ban higher capacity magazines after the Valentine’s Day tragedy.”

Good Guy w/Gun stops bad guy; BTW, it was an AR-15 he used

by Skip March 2, 2018

Memorable line from the piece: “”… believes if he’d grabbed the smaller gun, the threat would have been less effective and he would have ended up shooting the man“ So a big black scary rifle (of only medium caliber) stopped a thug without firing a shot: deterrence through strength! Reformatted, emphasis mine: Dave Thomas was […]

‘I guess “Enterprise Cares” only for the fascist left.’

by Skip February 24, 2018

As to be expected, the Left is not letting a crisis go to waste.  They’ve marshalled their forces for the regular emotional political shove that I’ve been watching for years and combining it with “it’s for the children”.  And part of the regular S.O.P for Progressives: Work to silence the opposition by any means possible […]

A Man, a Woman, Or Something Else

by Steve MacDonald February 24, 2018

The Progressive Cult will disagree. Contrary to the transgender movement’s central claim — that “gender identity” determines whether someone is a man, a woman or something else — Mr. Anderson said the only rationale for determining an organism’s sex is “by that organism’s organization with respect to sexual reproduction.”

Every school shooter you’ve heard of came out of public schools

by Steve MacDonald February 20, 2018

While the professional left and their collectivist herd bleat and low about the government watchdogs that failed again having more power to watch over this or that, the political Right is having an increasingly constructive discussion about how we got here from there. We built a culture in which celebrity is our highest aspiration. From “Lifestyles […]

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 ( 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 […]
