Socialism

Socialism has always tried to hide itself from American Principles since the beginning – and then subvert them

by Skip January 17, 2018

Finally, Dewey arguably did more than any other reformer to repackage progressive social theory in a way that obscured just how radically its principles departed from those of the American founding. I have held onto this copy of National Review for nine years with its cover turned back to keep this article topmost.  In doing […]

Just When you Think the Left Can’t get Any More Stupid…

by Kimberly Morin January 7, 2018

Along comes Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress (GSP) who says… “hold my beer.” This has got to be one of the more stupid things I’ve seen on the Twitterverse in a while. Clearly, Hawkins and her sidekick over at GSP have never worked in a restaurant or actually worked in customer service or with […]

Can I ask: what SHOULDN’T Government do (re: NH Paid Family Leave), eh Steve Duprey?

by Skip December 21, 2017

Oh, it sounds SO nice and fuzzy – it’s for the Children, it’s for the Adults, it’s for the Seniors. How could ANYONE be against – yet another government program.  Republican Committeeman Steve Duprey seems to be in favor of this: …Steve Duprey, president of Foxfire Property Management and the Duprey Companies; Brad Sawler, owner […]

Disqus Doodlings – Why we should pay far more for clothes Part 3

by Skip December 16, 2017

Sigh.  I swear that sometimes these folks have no clue about how an economy actually works!  Without rehashing Part 1 and Part 2, it is clear that the comments were much more interesting than the actual post over at Treehugger (although it did set the stage – see title above). Another comment that was left […]

Tales from the BudComm: we don’t need no stinkin’ private sector

by Skip December 3, 2017

Cemeteries.  Usually a very small part of any town or city’s budget but it is there.  It seems that every town has at least one within its boundaries; mine, due to historical reasons, has a bunch of them.  Many of them were old family plots started well over a hundred years ago and over time, […]

A lesson from the First Thanksgiving

by Skip November 23, 2017

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 […]

The wages of Socialism

by Skip November 16, 2017

SHOT: Venezuela finally admits it: The socialist country is bankrupt Venezuela, given the odd detail of counterclaims, has finally admitted that it cannot pay back the debt it has. That is, the country is bankrupt. It’s worth leaving aside exactly what happens next in the halls of banking and asking how this all came to be? The answer […]

“The Rise of Socialism is Absurd”

by Skip November 14, 2017

Given that Millennials are seemingly on a death match towards embracing Socialism, a word from a very, very wise Economics Nobel Prize winner is applicable: It isn’t about the economic system; it IS about human nature. (H/T:

World Economy explained with two cows – Part 2 Socialism

by Skip October 21, 2017

UPDATE: Upon reflection, this graphic is wrong.  The second line should actually read “You are FORCED to give one to your neighbour.  No, that’s still not right. Try this: The Government TAKES one of your cows and gives it to your neighbor because: INEQUALITY!!!!”.  Just like the Democrats keep lecturing us – you voluntarily giving […]

Seriously Hynsie – you actually put your name to this? Did you warn your client of Hypocrisy?

by Skip October 4, 2017

That would be blatant hypocrisy, by the way. OK, admittedly I’m late on this but hey, better late than never. You’re a Republican operative AND communications guy – did you forget to check the history on your client’s voting record BEFORE sending this (and others) out?  Isn’t that just basic standard procedure – protect your […]

Bernie Sanders: “If we expanded Medicaid [to] everybody…we would bankrupt the nation.”

by Steve MacDonald September 16, 2017

Jeanne Shaheen probably isn’t worried about her support of Bernie Sanders 2017 Medicaid for everyone plan, but Bernie Sanders was–30 years ago. Back in 1987, a much younger Bernie Sanders apparently had that sense too. He warned that expanding Medicaid, the jointly run federal-state health care program for the poor and disabled, to everyone in […]

‘Supremacy’ is the Goal of All Democrat Policies

by Steve MacDonald August 19, 2017

The left is off the rails about White Supremacy which you should understand is a bit hypocritical. Not just because its roots in America spring from the Democrat Party. The problem is that while they are claiming outrage about white supremacy, Supremacy over every American is the goal of all Democrat outrage. They seek supremacy […]

Blogline of Day – the stereotype is reinforced every time the Progressives open their mouths

by Skip July 16, 2017

And summed up perfectly by this: If you want to know what smug liberal superiority and self-righteousness is all about, this is the piece for you. That would be a piece in Pravda on the Merrimac by Rep. Mary Jane Wallner and Sen. Dan Feltes – both Progressive Democrats – which basically tells the rest of us […]

The mineshaft that is California and its canary is restaurants. Dead ones.

by Skip June 30, 2017

I have been involuntarily offline for a while – the Grandson has been staying up too late (his daytime nap times are changing affecting my “uninterrupted time” at night), certification exams for work – and my laptop crapped out early this week.  I just got it back thanks to Josh and his crew at Same […]

What Communist Doesn’t Support Violence?

by Ed Naile June 16, 2017

It is silly to argue that Socialist Revolutionary Bernie Sanders does not promote hatred and violence. He is merely biding his time and getting away with as much as he can. Bernie is a life-long New York leftist who hasn’t even adopted the English language yet. He still spouts an extra-thick Bronx dialect. Nothing has […]

Heh! About that bill to implement single payer healthcare in California?

by Skip May 22, 2017

Ah yes – a false “right” for all to demand that others pay for their “faux” healthcare right.  Sorry, this isn’t a “right” – it is an ideological milestone for Socialists / Big Government / Collectivists.  You know – Democrats.  Turns out, however, that this “right” that the Dems, who have  super-majorities in California will […]

Where Socialism Leads– a Reminder from O’Brien to Sanders

by Scott Morales May 5, 2017

“These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger.” — Bernie Sanders (American dupe) August 5, 2011 Today:

Local Groups Admit They are in League with Communism

by Steve MacDonald April 29, 2017

If Tea Party activists marched with Klan members that would suggest an affinity or affiliation as damning as any. And so it should be with groups that March in celebration of May Day. A number of local groups are sponsoring or participating in May Day marches in New Hampshire. That should associate them ideologically with the […]

Socialist Occidental Professor Caroline Heldman gets flustered by Tucker Carlson’s simple questions

by Skip April 19, 2017

Tucker – what a joy to watch at times as he takes on self-important self-righteous Leftists (mostly) with that baby face of his, puts them at a bit of ease, listens to them, and then just asks them simple questions.  It would be obvious to you and I, these questions, but as we see with this […]

Guest Post – Dan Itse: Christianity is not Socialism

by Skip March 31, 2017

I sought this consent today to apologize. To apologize for not having a ready answer. For the record, I will be mentioning the Bible, but only because someone else brought it up first. Back when we were debating SB 302, I commented to a fellow representative that I would probably vote for it, if only […]

Data Point: Heinlein’s “Bad Luck” – a reminder

by Skip March 28, 2017

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as […]

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 proves two things about Socialism and Environmentalism

Venezuela is a basket case from every view you can take – except if you are a Socialist.  Those folks don’t even want to look in that direction and do you EVER hear them talking about how GREAT Venezuela is?  This headline and article doesn’t help and it should give both Socialists and Environmentalists (but […]

I guess they didn’t “have the right people” leading the Socialist charge, again!

by Skip February 3, 2017

I generally dislike posting an entire post from elsewhere unless I’m doing a fisking but I think the Left that reads the ‘Grok should see this – and then try to explain it away.  You see this pretty much every time a country goes full Chavez / Maduro (emphasis mine): From Instapundit.
