Skip

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small "L" libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America's Founders back into our culture again.

Friday Humor – Medical edition

I love this Doctor Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true? A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that’s it… don’t waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that’s like saying you can extend …

“I would follow him to the Gates of Hell” – guess who the Marines prefer?

Every President is the Commander-in-Chief and that office deserves respect.  That respect should also translate up and down the chain of command.  That said, there are those Presidents that the military genuinely likes, and those…well, not so much. Guess who has earned the respect, admiration, and hearts of the Marines? Guess that answer is fairly …

Your Electricity brought to you by the US Government (and you thought dealing with your local electrical company was a pain in the …) OK, Obama wants to marginalize the rich from charitable contributions, which charities will be funded by  government largesse, wants to nationalize health care (it owns 50% of it already), comparing (in …

Guess who else has an enemies list & likes to nationalize industries

Rush Limbaugh Rick Santelli Jim Cramer David Brooks, by his own admission, was taken to the woodshed by "four senior White House advisors" Yup, this part of Republicanism, the Nixonian enemies list, has been adopted by Obama – not exactly a ringing endorsement of "best policies", I think (s’all right, Pelosi has one too!) And …

NH HCR 006 – Abiding by the law; requiring others to do the same?

As I said here, NH’s HCR 006, a resolution affirming Jeffersonian principles and keeping a separation of the Federal Government and those of the States (i.e., Hey Feds, stay within your Constitutional boundaries) was voted down by the NH House. There, I only listed the Belknap County Republicans that voted against the bill.  I thought, …

Obama – it is clear that what he & his minions DON’T say is more important than what they DO say

Just before the election in November, it came out that Obama hates coal: So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.  Well, in his process of "transforming" America, …

” The only plausible explanation is that Obama’s destruction of the economy is intentional.”

Ideology is trumping good sense.  The stock market crash (and indeed, it now is) has wiped out 10 Trillion dollars.  Not only has Geithner looked like a fool (he proved he could not master Turbo-tax yet is Obama’s point person to get us out of this mess?) but Obama simply dismissed the stock market’s evaluation …
