Tyranny

Progressive and The Proper Role of Government – and your subservience to it.

by Skip July 27, 2016

Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive  philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our […]

Notable Quote – Patrick Henry

by Skip May 1, 2016

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? -Patrick (“Give me Liberty or give me Death”) Henry   Apparently, lots of Progressives/Communists (not much difference) here in NH believe so.  Isn’t that right, NH State Rep Katherine Rogers?

Thumbnail image for Why I’m More Right And They Are More Wrong

I spoke about this big picture issue briefly on GrokTALK! Saturday. One of my kids pointed out that they have a teacher who speaks to the ideas of progressivism with the same certainty with which I speak about conservative principles and liberty. I told him that it is great to hear people who feel so […]

“Free Stuff” means slavery for someone else

by Skip February 21, 2016

I’ll just say it loud: some people just don’t deserve free stuff.  After all, it’s worth every penny they paid for it seems to be their outlook.  How many of us know people that once having received something free, trash it?  Not everyone and some people are REALLY appreciative of what they have been given.

Data Point – Bernie Sanders will hoover up your money

by Skip January 19, 2016

Bernie Sanders, like all Socialists / Statists, believes your money is really the State’s money.  After all, if you believe in Warrenism, “you didn’t build that” and apparently, Bernie believes that the State is only lending you your money, and now he wants it back.  After all, like all Statists, he believes his spending your […]

Disarmament

by Skip December 20, 2015

“Fear a Government that fears your guns“ It is clear that after the Democrat Presidential Primary Debate last night, the Democrats trying to be Numero Uno fear an armed populace.  Pretty much, I can’t think of a Socialist Government that ever has. When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, […]

The Tyranny of Idealism

by Susan Olsen October 10, 2015

“What the leftist does best is teach self-hatred. It is the main course in our educational system today. Its students are taught to despise their family, their culture, their religion, their way of life and their nation for failing to live up to the tainted ideals of the left. And to gain their self-worth through […]

NHCCS Constitution Day – Dr. Edwin Vieira: “The Administrative State: Blueprint for Tyranny”

by Skip September 22, 2015

Following Ben Krim’s address, Dr. Vieira took the stage to talk about the changing of our representative Republic into that which I have written about for years (trust me, he makes the FAR more scholarly argument than I could EVAH hope to do): the warning about Progressivism’ Administrative State why by we no longer rule ourselves […]

Notable Quote – Robert Heinlein

by Susan Olsen May 31, 2015

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed […]

Progressives are Liberals but are not liberal – their actions show they, in reality, are tyrants

by Skip December 30, 2014

And remember, EVERY Progressive is a socialist…in this, they perfectly fit the definition of Orwellianism – they use the same words as everyone else but mean them to mean other meanings – bastardizing the common language so as to advance a leftist / socialist agenda.  They can’t be honest to us or to our common […]

James Madison on Partianship

  As long as the reason of man continues fallible, and he is at liberty to exercise it, different opinions will be formed. As long as the connection subsists between his reason and his self-love, his opinions and his passions will have a reciprocal influence on each other; and the former will be objects to […]

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 […]

Why is it that only Fed agencies undergoing Congressional oversight are losing hard drives?

by Skip July 14, 2014

Lois Lerner of the IRS is the most famous example of a Federal Agency who has been weaponized by the Obama Administration (even, according to random posts I’ve seen, more than Tricky Dicky – disgraced President Nixon (R) or one termer President LBJ (D)) and we have been SO treated by the arrogance of the […]

Lightbringer is having a rhetoric deficit on just about every front.  Obama has treated the US Economy like a rental car.  He has only taken a middling interest in international matters, and only when he thought it might burnish his street cred.  The problem there is that he never had any cred to burnish.  The […]

The two-minute warning

by Tom May 14, 2014

Game almost over? Sadly, William Baer was arrested for speaking outside of his “two minute” free-speech allotment at a Gilford, NH school board meeting.  Protesting the use of a scandalous novel (which I will not promote here) in his daughters’ high school, his concerns and complaints got to be too much for the board to […]

I have been following the New Hampshire Political ruling class efforts to stifle political speech for years.  It is a bipartisan effort to erect barriers to free speech.  So what do you call that?  Almost free speech?  Sort of Free speech?  Selective Free speech?  Speech that’s free but only during the calendar days defined by […]

Heh! (emphasis mine): S.C. Gov.

Haley made her comments after she signed into law a bill […]

Where I disagree with Steve on SB 120 – the NH Republican State Senator Incumbent Protection Racket Act

by Skip February 9, 2014

No,  Steve, it is NOT “not… intentional“: I’m not saying that any of this was intentional, by the way.  I’m saying that the sponsors are probably too blinkered by their own arrogance, trapped in the tunnel-vision of their own circumstances, to realize the destructive power of what they are trying to do. I believe SB120’s […]
