Yeah, and Zandra Rice-Hawkins was a sterling example of why we don’t “join their conversation” on guns

by Skip October 9, 2017

I’m going to watch it again, but it was class Rice-Crispies operandi – dripping with condescension and her favorite tactic of hijacking the conversation while someone else is talking (in this case, Susan Olsen representing the Women’s Defense League).  I have to give Susan kudos for the attempt, but it was clear that Zandra Rice-Hawkins […]

So the Left wants to begin a “conversation” about guns, eh?

by Skip October 8, 2017

And on Obamacare. And on contraceptives. And on LGBT issues.  They must think we are stupid because the “conversation” has never really stopped – they NEVER keep yammering.  What they they mean by “conversating” is for us to SHUT UP and adopt their way of thinking as if we were soft cantalopes.  Not happening, as […]

Notable Quotes – boy, the Libs will flip over this – JFK and Trump believe the same thing!

by Skip July 2, 2017

John F. Kennedy‘s Inaugural Address: …And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe–the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the State but from the hand of God… Donald J Trump (at his “Celebrate Freedom Rally”): “Since the signing of […]

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip July 1, 2017

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the […]

Notable Quote – Prof. Randy Barnett

by Skip June 4, 2017

The political theory announced in the Declaration of Independence can be summed up by the proposition I mentioned above: First come rights then comes government.  According to this view: The rights of individuals do not originate with any government, but preexist its formation. The equal protection of these rights is both the purpose and first […]

If Democrats Want it, Run Away From it. The More They Want it the Faster You Run

by Steve MacDonald March 6, 2017

When contemplating your vote for bills like HB478, or any Bill a Democrat sponsors, consider what I like to call my rule number one. If Democrats want it, you should probably run away from it. The more they want it, the faster you run. New Hampshire House Bill 478 is not about transgenders. It’s no […]

Blogline of the Day – Restating “the Proper Role of Government”

by Skip February 4, 2017

Great line from a post that RedState re-posted: These amendments would underscore that the federal government is one of limited and enumerated powers, and that those powers are islands in a sea of rights — rather than rights being islands in a sea of generalized federal power. We who are Liberty minded believe that it […]

Are the Socialists in the US doing what the Romans did?

by Skip October 9, 2016

Those of us on the Right often see and talk about current events and then the parallels from past history and cultures – something that we NEVER see the Left do (outside their lens of oppression and race).  Why?  Because there’s nothing new under the sun – almost everything we see today someone or people have […]

Wrong About Rights?

by Steve MacDonald November 2, 2015

Salvo | “…rather than look into the matter to determine whether some true injustice lies beneath a particular disparity (Was there theft? Is there ongoing oppression?), proponents of the new social justice pronounce the disparity itself to be the injustice.

Emphasis mine: Elizabeth Price Foley wonders whether Obama is actually going to create his “national” police force in contravention of Congress and the Constitution.

Do you think Government telling kids their Rights come from Government is a problem?

by Skip November 26, 2014

In many countries, that would be true.  But we aren’t most countries (at least, not yet) – it is clear that our radical Founding Fathers determined that our Rights pre-exist the formation of Government (e.g., I didn’t happen to be safe from illegal search and seizure or posses the self-defense rights simply because the Constitution […]
