Thumbnail image for Three Questions: For Anyone who Supports Obama, Man-Made Global Warming, or Abortion.

1) Does President Obama represent your values? 2) Is there anything that could disprove global warming and if so what? 3) If your mother had aborted you immediately after conception (or any point thereafter), you would have been denied every day from that day to this; how is that not “a life?”

Or better put “I used to be your base – now I’ll be someone else’s”

by Skip September 24, 2013

This is one of those few times that I will reprint an entire post.  Yet, I am hearing similar things more and more: “why should I fight and support a Party that more and more is Democrat-like versus Freedom and Constitution loving?  Why should my time, my valuable time, be spent defending a Platform that […]

Drinkin’ his own booze

by Susan Olsen January 18, 2013

Back in my coal mining days in southern Appalachia, there was a saying folks had: “He’s drinkin’ his own booze” and it was not a compliment.  In those days, good stuff could generally be defined as spirits that wouldn’t make you go blind and the way to tell was by putting a dibby dab in a […]

New Hampshire “Democrat” Values

by Steve MacDonald August 6, 2012

Michelle Obama was in New Hampshire recently, talking about how Barack will win here because they have “New Hampshire Values.”  I realize that what she meant was New Hampshire Democrat party values, which are more like ‘Chicago Values,’ than actual ‘New Hampshire values.’ You know the values she means; big spending, more taxes and fees, […]

Noteable Quote: Russell Kirk

by Steve MacDonald February 20, 2012

David Brooks – strong American values are leading to “incredibly backward-looking campaign”

by Skip January 19, 2012

David Brooks is “the conservative columnist” for the New York Time (“NYT”); the adjective “Conservative” would never be used as a modifier to his name here in NH – and am most assuredly positive that my sentiment would be replicated  with many others in other states.  But even as he opines as a New Yorker, […]
