Last Republican Debate: succinct enumeration of “Republicanism”

by Skip November 12, 2015

Yes, the split between the “We can govern Big Government better than the Democrats” Republicans versus those that actually believe in “Smaller Government” and are willing to work for it.  Jeffrey Lord at Conservative Review has some bon mots on who is in which camp and why the former is as deadly as the Democrats […]

How many times can an interviewee have that “deer in headlights” look?

by Skip November 12, 2015

Pitiful, simply pitiful.  Here we have a college co-ed, a national spokesdweeb for the Million Student Day to Demand Silly Stuff Because They Don’t Want To Pay For It (aka “Student Million March”), made the fatal mistake of coming onto a show where the host understands how to ask very simple questions.  Students want: Free […]

They certainly do not know what it really is

by Skip November 11, 2015

It’s quite amusing, really – there is a phrase out there that holds a lot of truth: The Left is always trying to shut up Conservatives; Conservatives just want the Left to keep on talking. Why do you think this is true, especially the latter phrase?  Just watch: Only ONE of those college kids was […]

MITT ROMNEY: DEMISE OF LEGACY MEDIA EMPOWERING CONSERVATIVE ‘INSURGENTS,’ PREVENTING MORE ‘COLLABORATIVE ACTION’ Ugh…this post about Romney, divisiveness, Democrats, media, and Paul Ryan is wrong on so many levels….but that’s why I pay myself the big cents to wade through this slosh.

Another verification that the Democrat Party is now the Socialist Party

by Skip October 21, 2015

This snippet on Jim Webb’s departure from the Democrat Party nomination for President race: …This presidential campaign for Jim Webb has been all about trying to restore what he views as the traditional Democratic Party, so that’s rural voters in the South, in Appalachia, especially white voters, who have really abandoned the Democratic Party in […]

What Bernie Sanders Wants for America

by Steve MacDonald October 20, 2015
Thumbnail image for What Bernie Sanders Wants for America

Sanders is possessed of the ancient 20th century Nordic “tradition” of the socialist paradise. He loves him some “modern” Swedish economics, see also Socialism the Third Way. He may also think those Lads from Liverpool are still on tour and he’s just waiting for them to come ’round so he can see the show. Sorry […]

Socialism is the greediest of all political systems

by Skip October 15, 2015

After all, if you want to take stuff from others that isn’t yours, isn’t that entirely greedy of you?  Selfish?  Full of envy? Is that such a great way to go through life instead of being happy with what you earn (and not what politics gets you by stealing it)? (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

Democrat Debate last nite – proved Mitt right

by Skip October 14, 2015

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. Yup, I think they can pretty much take that off the bucket list – mission accomplished in toto for one (they’re still working on the Stupid Party, however).  Free…you name it; paid leave, more SS benefits, tuition paid, more Obamacare – it […]

“Tax me! Tax the **** out of me!”

by Skip September 30, 2015

Dave Matthews would be happy with being called a socialist and would be most happy if Bernie Sanders was elected President and folks like him would be forced to pay more in taxes. “Someone could call me a liberal, and I’d say, ‘Thank you.’ Someone could call me a socialist, and I’d say, “I wish […]

At a time when we seem to be devolving to Govt control over all things…

by Skip September 18, 2015

After all, we see the Obama Government inserting itself into as many nooks and crannies as it can, when we see the two Democrat Prez front runners equally willing to take that stand of Obama and juice with a 55 gallon drum full of steroid to dragoon the US into deeper and deeper levels of […]

Abortion and the Socialist

by Skip September 14, 2015

Bernie Sanders, Socialist Democrat, spoke at Liberty University today (the largest evangelical private university in the US).  I have to give him a bit of cred, given that he went to a place where Democrats or Socialists don’t ordinarily go.  I’m not going post up all of his talk but I will concerning this from […]

False prophets…

by Susan Olsen September 2, 2015

“There are no rational means of predicting the ‘future of humanity’ over a long period or foretelling the nature of ‘social formations’ in ages to come. The idea that we can make such forecasts ‘scientifically,’ and that without doing so we cannot understand the past, is inherent in the Marxist theory of ‘social formations;’ it […]

Notable Quote – Thomas Sowell

by Susan Olsen August 30, 2015

“While capitalism has a visible cost — profit — that does not exist under socialism, socialism has an invisible cost — inefficiency — that gets weeded out by losses and bankruptcy under capitalism. The fact that most goods are more widely affordable in a capitalist economy implies that profit is less costly than inefficiency. Put […]

Bernie’s “elevator pitch”…

by Susan Olsen August 18, 2015

“My elevator pitch is that the United States has a grotesque level of income and wealth inequality where the top one-tenth of 1 percent owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, where almost 20 percent of our children are living in poverty, 40 percent of African-American children are living in poverty.

This, from Socialist Bernie Sanders, caught my ear on Sunday’s This Week talking head show

by Skip August 7, 2015

Certainly ole’ Bernie is tapping into something on the hard Left – proving what a lot of us on the Right have been saying for a while: the center of the Democrat Party is now outright Socialist.  And step by step, over the decades, they have been using the Law & Regulation stick to transform […]

Clue to the clueless – there IS no difference between Democrats and Socialists

Question of the week was asked by Chris Matthews of MSNBC on his Hardball show “What is the difference between Democrats and Socialists?” – asked of the Democrat National Committee head honcho Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) to the curious event of self declared independent and self-avowed Socialist Bernie Sanders seeking the Presidential nomination of a […]

Notable Quote – US Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist – VT)

by Skip April 30, 2015

Actually, the official designation is US Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for “Independent” but he certainly caucuses with the Democrats.  However, this from Town Hall reminds us what he truly is, on this day that he announced that he is running for the Presidency of the United States (emphasis mine): “I am a socialist and everyone […]

When I read this post about the Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis (a socialist, btw) in his demands that Europe send even more money to Greece (because GREECE!), all I could think of was a screaming match I had one night with Michael Kitsch over the fact that Irefused, as a Budget Committee member, to tax […]

By the World’s standards, ALL Americans are the 1%

Top 1%ers if your income is $32,000 or more.  Period.  Yet, the Occupy Wall Street remnants and the Elizabeth Warrens are so blinkered on this, thinking it is only the Haves and Have-Nots battle here in the US that matters.  Out of sight, out of mind is the fact that many of our Poor are […]
