Democrats – the Party of the old

by Skip January 19, 2017

Ideas, that is.  The UL has a snippet or so of the different caucuses (cauci?) that exist in the NH House – like minded legislators flocking together around a single or set of ideas.  There are a few but this not only grabbed my attention but puts the difference between those of us who put […]

The Left BURNS over Trump being Prez. So, bring out Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

by Skip November 27, 2016

This is a quick interesting point as to WHY Jill Stein (a SHINING example of a Red Commie wrapped in the Green fig leaf) is demanding recounts in WI, MI, or PA – I would not have thought of this angle and its long term consequences (reformatted, emphasis mine). First Alinsky: RULE 4: “Make the […]

The GOP owns Trump because it rejected and destroyed the TEA Party

by Skip October 9, 2016

Much ink has been written about the rise and fall of the TEA Party.  It started off as a rebellion against what it saw as overreaches by Government, especially the Federal govt, starting slowly with Bush (“We have to destroy the Free Market in order to save it”) and then on steroids after Rick Santelli’s […]

So Ersatz Republicans Shawn Jasper and Dick Hinch want to change the NH GOP Platform?

by Skip September 10, 2016

And in the process, run the NH GOP FASTER towards that gorge named Democrat-Lite? A few thoughts on Steve’s post: Will it make any difference?  The NH GOP Leadership, both in the Party and elected politicians, don’t pay much attention to the Platform as it is.  Listen to their words, watch their actions – how […]

Hillary Tze-tung?

by Skip August 25, 2016

Hey, if Hillary can sweepingly stereotype Trump follows as the KKK (and remember, the KKK was started by the Democrat Party in the South and let’s not forget the Grand Kleagle and US Senator Robert Byrd – who Hillary lionizes), well, this is just us using the tactics of the Left. Deal with it.  And […]

Notable Quote – Felix Morley

by Skip August 10, 2016

Kinda hard, this time, to separate the “run up” from the quote that Dr. Boudreaux picks out so I’ve included it as well as the observation by Broudreaux himself (emphasis mine): …is from page 168 of the 1981 Liberty Fund edition of Felix Morley‘s 1959 volume, Freedom and Federalism; here, Morley is discussing Franklin Roosevelt’s preposterous […]

Now that the Democrat meme of “Weapons of War” is being exploded, a new one is rising?

by Skip July 3, 2016

That’s the thing about Progressives / Liberals / Progressives – they burn out phrases about as fast as they can open their mouths.  They burnt out “Progressives”, switched to “Liberals”, and have had to switch back.  I foresee another switch coming up soon on this idea.  Ditto for that politically made up meme of “assault […]

Question of the year – Brendan O’Neill

by Susan Olsen March 16, 2016

““Unless you think Trump is an insanely powerful political maestro who in the space of six months has utterly altered the character of America, then you have to conclude that the current ugliness and division everyone is complaining about has been brewing over the past eight years of Obamaism and ‘politics of hope’. For liberals […]

I like this new term for “Progressives”: Compassionate Totalitarians

by Skip February 17, 2016

It is clear that today’s progressives have the same constitutional contempt as their predecessors. I hope they do not share the racial vision. Black voters ought to demand, at a minimum, that progressives disavow their ugly racist past. They should re-label themselves to something other than progressives, maybe compassionate totalitarians. If you listen to either […]

Some Xenophobia Is More Acceptable Than Others – Debate That

by Ed Naile January 23, 2016

As the British Parliament debated letting an American enter their fine country because he is supposedly anti-Muslim there is an interesting un-debated issue I find interesting. Tomorrow I can book a flight from London to Kuwait on Kuwait Airlines. Kuwait Airlines motto is “Earning Your Trust.” Here is their web site for scheduling. Funny how […]

The Democrat Geriatric Mono-skin-color discussion tonite – live tweeting it

by Skip October 13, 2015

I can’t top the pix that Steve, Kimberly, and Scott put up for tonite’s Democrat snooze-fest that will be at 8:30pm on CNN (the Clinton News Network) where the head questionaire Anderson Cooper (he of “teabagger” fame, showing his journalistic objectivity and diversity towards those of the conservative political leanings) has already promised a softball filled […]

Data Point – Are the rich paying their “fair” share?

by Skip September 17, 2015

According to the Left, never.  Nothing is ever enough for the Hard Left, Socialists, and Democrats.  Why else would they keep aping the Marxist mantra of “Each according to their need, each according to their ability” in everything (re: DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz unwilling to make the argument that there is a difference between Democrats […]

Notable Quote – Frederic Bastiat

by Susan Olsen June 9, 2015

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all.”

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip March 16, 2015

Shot: from an email, back from 2013, on a report from a meeting where NH Senate plans on endorsing Obamacare were being discussed: I arrived just in time to hear an influential member of the board saying (I’m paraphrasing here) what a great plan it was and the only people who would not want to accept […]

Why Democrats hate the TEA Party, why Socialists hate Liberty folks

by Skip October 29, 2014

Evil.  It exists in the real world and many of us can recognize it.  However, in the ever-increasing political polarization here in America, there certainly is one set of folks that truly believes that evil actually exists.  No, for these people it is not that commit heinous crimes.  It is not those that advocate killing […]

A reminder from Weekend Pundit who environmentalists really are:

by Skip September 15, 2014

So true, so true: Along with the above story, there’s this from Powerline digging into the lies the watermelon environmentalists tell themselves in order to keep working to impoverish everyone….except themselves. There’s an old line that environmentalists are “watermelons”–green on the outside, red on the inside. A lot of environmentalists will take great offense if you say […]

Why suffer when Progressive Paradises are so close?

by Don May 20, 2014

Last weekend I traveled through beautiful parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. These nearby beautiful states do all the things that New Hampshire Progressives/Liberals/Socialists complain that New Hampshire doesn’t do. It’s a shame that we have so many unhappy citizens when these Progressive paradises are so close. Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York have huge […]

Notable Quote – Glenn Reynolds

by Skip May 16, 2014

“If I lived in Venezuela, I’d find out where the guardsmen lived, and shoot them when they walked out the door in the morning. That is, of course, the proper response to dictators and their minions of every stripe, even Hollywood-backed socialists.” – Glenn Reynolds, law professor, proprietor of Instapundit, syndicated columnist, and prolific writer […]

The Realities of DemocratCare…. or ‘They Don’t Call us “The Right!” For Nothing.’ Part XVII – Now, it gets Personal

by Skip November 7, 2013

I AM one of the 93 million employer insured employees that Obamacare has come for now that it has all but killed off the private insurance marketplace – something that absolutely delights folks like NH Congressmen Annie Custer, Carol Shea-Porter, and NH’s US Senator Jeanne Shaheen.  They want as little capitalism left as possible: Shaheen […]

Notable Quote – Ludwig von Mises

by Susan Olsen October 28, 2013

“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they […]

Merrimack County Republican Committee – My ‘discussion’ Part 2

by Skip October 23, 2013

So, the second part of my discussion given at the MCRC meeting last week – finally getting to the center points of the opportunity.  The GOP and the NH GOP are still in the throws of a civil war that has only intensified over the last few years.  It can be broken down into two […]

They’re almost laughable – socialists and global warmists

by Skip October 4, 2013

First on the Socialists – an observation from El Rushbo: Let me give you an interesting observation on William F. Buckley. It’s a quote, but it’s more an observation. Buckley pointed out that in the ’30s we were told we had to “collectivize the nation,” i.e., big government. Go socialist. We had to collectivize the […]

Blogline of the Day – The Left is happy to have you just have sand in your shorts

The basis of his economic theory

by Susan Olsen May 7, 2013

You can steal from your children and your grandchildren with impunity because, after all,  “In the long run, we’re all dead“. “We repudiated entirely customary morals, conventions and traditional wisdom. We were, that is to say, in the strict sense of the term, immoralists. The consequences of being found out had, of course, to be […]

Tyranny: Democrat Socialists of America in the US House saying (Ah-gain) “you don’t need all that and you didn’t earn it anyways!”

by Skip April 28, 2013

So they believe that if you have too much private property (too much cash), they have the perfect way to steal it from you: write a bill!  After all, it isn’t FAIR that you have earned so much by stealing it from the poor and middle class.  They have far better purposes for what your […]

Lying to Parents to have “power” over the child / Student? Head Teacher in Chicago is “all in” on this tactic

by Skip March 27, 2013

Sickening.  And make no mistake, if it is happening there, it is happening in your child’s school too.  Go ahead, watch the video and then ask yourself “Can I really trust my child’s teacher?” After all Karen Lewis is the head of the teachers union in Chicago – this is just a tactic of Chicago […]

Another, more descriptive term for Capitalism?

by Skip December 25, 2012

Innovationism: Deirdre McCloskey says somewhere that a better name for capitalism is “innovationism” – innovationism unleashed only in societies in which private property rights are at least reasonably secure, freedom of contract is at least reasonably the norm, markets are at least reasonably free, and (importantly) the multitude of bourgeois merchants and accountants and actuaries […]

Blogline of the Day – on socialism

by Skip December 19, 2012

Asking a socialist to embrace austerity is like asking a prostitute to embrace chastity: it’s simply not part of the business model. I still like Steve‘s, involving “eunuchs at a fertility festival.”   (H/T: Instapundit)
