A lesson from the First Thanksgiving

by Skip November 27, 2014

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 […]

For the past few years I’ve taken a moment on the day before Thanksgiving to post the latest DCCC Annual Let’s Ruin Thanksgiving Flyer.  There’s one every year.  It’s a bullet  punch check list to guide the drone army in a national dinner-time defense of the progressive narrative. Ever ask yourself why?  Why does the […]

I bet this version of “Tell your family about O’care” wasn’t quite what was expected

by Skip November 30, 2013

As Steve pointed out, there WERE plans by Democrat entities (only the DNC, DCCC, OFA, et al) to have Obama supporters act as mere political shills  for Obamacare: talk to your kids, take on your crazy TEA Party uncle, have your guests bring SS cards and income statements, pull them aside and in soft tones […]

The real reason for the success of Thanksgiving – Property Rights

by Skip November 28, 2013

Now, I will take a bit of an issue with Reason  – Thanksgiving was given to God in a celebration and not the fact that the Pilgrims went from Communism to Capitalism for the basis of its economic.  However, that historical lesson presented here is quickly summed up here: While there are some that will […]

Hard to resist. Apparently the ObamaCare enrollment blitz envisioned by Organizing for Acorn Squash–aided by media allies like the Huffington Post–with a launch date of your Thanksgiving table, has been scuttled.  And it is both a launch problem and a design problem.  (The site still doesn’t work and no operators are standing by.) While that […]

Organizing for Acorn Squash is not alone this holiday season in politicizing the Holiday dinner table.  The DCCC is back with its most recent installment of the DCCC Cheat Sheet.  Emphasis on Cheat.  Why? You hate the TEA Party, so let me count the ways. Let’s face it: we all have a crazy Tea Party […]

One more company follows Obama mandated financial incentives – Liberals will howl in anger

by Skip November 21, 2013

As this company in Ohio, PSC Metals, decides to dump escort their 1,000 employees to the portal of Obamacare.  After all, isn’t that The Plan?  Isn’t that the Progressives’ on ramp for single payer, when 100% of our healthcare system becomes Nationalized (like the student loan program – how’s that working out fer you young’uns?).  […]

White Meat Equals Racism

by Steve MacDonald November 27, 2012

In case you didn’t know it having a preference for white meat at Thanksgiving makes you a racist. Warner Todd Huston, on Breitbart, has an entertaining piece about the rantings of one Ron Rosenbaum at Slate, who makes the case that white bread, the other white meat (Pork), and even a preference for white Turkey […]

Thanksgiving – a re-acquainting and a reality check

by Skip November 22, 2012

Yes, as those in the mental health field say, I am still processing Mom’s passing – it may take a while and I’m sure that there will be some rough edges that will catch me when I’m least likely to think so – it will continue to hurt until it subsides into a low-level throb.  […]

Seasoned Greetings

by Steve MacDonald November 20, 2012

The Holidays are upon us.  It’s that special time of year when atheism gets more Constitutional religious freedom than any actual religion, the lefts devotion to separation of church and state does not prevent union government employees from enjoying paid days off for…religious holidays, and we get to remind ourselves that what believing in a […]

by Steve MacDonald November 24, 2010

The Morons at the DCCC have done the nation a service this Thanskgiving. They have sent out an email to arm the tin-foil hat army with a ‘cheat sheet’ in the event that they find themselves in this unfortunate situation.
