Sorry Ian Underwood – SCOTUS just declared that words no longer have meanings

by Skip June 25, 2015

ScotusCare: The Judge has a few choice words. Ambiguous.  Steve put up one of Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s words of dissent from today’s King vs Burwell decision – I agree.  Former judge Napolitano, a strict Constitutionalist who, due to his attitude and oratory is a favorite speaker on the conservative trail (I have heard him […]

Perhaps we don’t wish you to know…

by Skip March 9, 2015

In part from The Hill: …Obama said that there are “a lot of law abiding, responsible gun owners” that use guns for protection, sport or as part of a tradition. But he added that upping background check requirements on gun purchasers is a policy that everyone should endorse. “It is not violating anybody’s rights that […]

The Rule of Law: Funny that she used that phrase: “we have these laws that aren’t being enforced?”

by Skip March 8, 2015

Talking on Fox News Sunday about the Ferguson report and the “disparate outcomes” on arrest records Kim Strassal: Are we going to trust the Justice Department?  Again, Eric Holder came out and said we’re not stop until we fix these things here.

So what would be the difference between Jeb Bush and Hillary – Part 1

by Skip March 4, 2015

Jeb Bush – part of the Bush Dynasty.  It certainly seems that the Establishment GOP is rolling out the carpet for him; here in NH, he’s about to be squired around the State on Friday by Congressman Frank Guinta and former and failed NH GOP Chair Fergus “The Fringe” Cullen.  The problem for me is, […]

The Rule of Law; Familiar indeed

by Skip February 26, 2015

From Susan at PackingNH: “SCEs believe they personally can ignore laws and act according to their own sovereign citizen ideology.” – Sovereign Citizen Extremist Report Sounds vaguely familiar… The Rule of Law – keep remembering that the example is set from the top down.  Why SHOULDN’T SCEs be able to ignore the law when the […]

The example of ignoring the Law – Denver fallen police memorial

by Skip February 17, 2015

And it trickles down.  Here I mention a few examples with the meme that once our “leaders” start disregarding The Rule of Law, it will spread – both horizontally and vertically.  After all, if leaders can ignore it, why not the rest of us?  In that previous post, it was clear that it was for […]

Bailouts – Go Figure: Feds lost money on their “Car Company Charity”

by Skip December 30, 2014

One of the first items that the Obama Administration was to re-engineer the Auto Bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler to the tune of 10s of billions (after Bush gave them billions more).  The reason was “jobs, we have to save these jobs!” never heeding the cries of the opposition that the American capitalistic system […]

Trust – and Progressives lament that people won’t Trust Big Govt. Yet Another Example why

by Skip October 6, 2014

From Bearing Arms, this story of how Govt uses its Power to Crush on a person that simply knew the Law – and they didn’t: Bullies have certain personality traits. Most are very insecure.

Rule of Law: a different standard for government workers?

by Skip September 22, 2014

Remember, The Rule of Law hold that EVERYONE (no exceptions) is equal before the Law and that everyone is subject to it.

Math is hard….? And so is adhering to The Rule of Law but will the NH GOP do so?

by Skip September 19, 2014

“…Notice of any such meetings shall be mailed to each member at their last known address, at least ten days before the day of the meeting“ Susan’s post pointing out that the NH GOP has royally screwed up by not adhering to its own rules is appropriate.  I have had a number of folks call […]

And herein is why I hate the dumb idea of so-called smart guns

by Skip August 5, 2014

I really don’t care for the arguments that those that wish to neuter the Second Amendment with a Trojan Horse: The only “smart gun” that exists in even a semi-viable form is the $1,800 iP1/iW1 Armatix combination. It is an electronically neutered 10-shot semi-automatic pistol in .22LR mated to a bulky watch. For the system […]

by Skip July 27, 2014

NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“ And that is not the expression of one that values or cherishes Freedom; instead, it is THE  seedling of Totalitarianism.  Obamacare, ObamaZoning – different facets of the same evil – those that have the hubris of incomplete knowledge that feel they have the right […]

by Skip July 19, 2014

“The border is secure” – really, how stupid do they think we are but they keep saying it anyways?  Saying so doesn’t make it so – else why do these illegal alien kids keep crossing our border without going through the proper and LEGAL process?  Or is it a case where the Democrats (and their […]

I think this sums up Obama’s outlook on The Rule of Law…

by Skip April 21, 2014

…and the “shall faithfully execute” part of his Oath.  I mentioned this on GrokTALK! this past Saturday and figure you ought to know what I was talking about.  It is all about Iran trying to send someone who participated in the 1979 US Embassy hostage situation back when Prez Carter was striving to be the […]

Notable Quote – Mona Charon

by Skip December 30, 2013

This isn’t just a problem with Obamacare. It’s a dangerous new level of government by decree. Adhering to the rule of law isn’t just a tradition — it is the essence of American liberty and success. Nations without it (look at Egypt, Venezuela or Russia) have difficulty achieving stability and prosperity even though they are […]

Obama can’t even tell the truth on his Government Motors bailout?

by Skip December 9, 2013

On the Obama Administration continuously doing what they want instead of doing what they should be doing Constitutionally: faithfully executing the Law (emphasis mine): Well, if you combine pervasive regulation of everything with the arbitrary power to suspend whatever law you like, what you get at the end of the day is arbitrary power to […]

Obamacare Premise (or promise?): “we’ll eliminate the fraud that insurance companies allow”

Remember that argument?  That Government spends far less on administrative costs, 2-3%,  so that ALONE is a good thing (with the implied meaning that the Government can do as well as private insurance (who were around 20-25%).  What they didn’t ever want to talk about was the fraud in the Government’s Medicare / Medicaid system […]

Notable Quote – B.W. Hughes, Jr

by Skip January 14, 2013

On The Rule of Law: So few young people today understand that the rule of law is the precondition of an ordered society in which free men and women act in liberty. It is no overstatement to say that, without the rule of law, we cannot have liberty, and that this is a truth, not […]
