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 […]

A number of deeply committed lefty central planners have longed to put an end to state issued marriage certificates because they believe it will empower the government to define all standards of social behavior and relationships. Take note, libertarians: central planners like Fineman view state recognition of marriage as the “institutional protection” for family autonomy and […]

“Immanentize the eschaton”

by Susan Olsen May 27, 2015

“For the secular leftist, the end state is social and necessarily political. It is all about getting everybody else on board and herding them into his imagined utopia. There are so many “problematic” aspects of life that need to be reengineered, so many vast social systems that need to be overthrown and replaced. But the […]

We’ve observed on these pages repeatedly that the left’s opposition to private gun ownership has nothing to do with violence as they describe it.   Opposition to private gun ownership creates more of the violence they say they wish to prevent. It is no secret that the liberal elites have no problem with guns.  They are […]

Peggy Joseph then: not worry about my mortgage. Now: “a little man”

by Skip July 18, 2014

Most of us on the Right remember this lady upon Obama becoming President: “I wouldn’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I wouldn’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know – if I help him, he’ll help me.”.  A lot of us were fearful, for we did believe him when he […]

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 […]

Jonah caught the stupid point – ignored the far more important point

by Skip January 14, 2013

Far be it for me to correct NRO’s Jonah Goldberg, best selling author of TWO books on Progressives (“Tyranny of Cliches” & “Liberal Fascism“) when commenting on something in the news, but I think he went for the “ha-ha” and missed the “ewwww”:  From the Washington Post’s profile of Bloomberg: NEW YORK — Michael Bloomberg, […]

Will people of Faith stand up to defend that Faith?

by Skip May 18, 2012

The beginning of this extremely well done video lays out the call to Catholics to help protect their faith and their values: In generations past, the Church has always been able to count on the faithful to stand up and protect her sacred rights and duties.
