Skip, Author at Granite Grok - Page 1415 of 1417


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.

Tom Flaherty!

Born in Boston, my family (parents, cousins, aunts, uncles) all took flight to the "Irish Riviera" (South Shore) in the early 1970’s, during Boston’s busing crisis.  I grew up in a Massachusetts middle-class suburb, with adequate schools, ocean access, and lots of friends.  My parents didn’t have it bad, but pushed for me to have …

Patriotism (or not) on 7/4/06

I read a lot of blogs pretty much most days.  This entry from Thomas Sowell caught my eye, and while it is talking mostly about the NYT and the lack of concern / the overabundance of hubris, for me the money quote is this: Patriotism is not chic in the circles of those who assume …

Party Pooper

From Treehugger – I have a couple of "environmental" blogs that I read.  Why?  I do believe that we should and can be able to use other technologies utilizing alternative energy sources.  For instance, my former house had "active" solar hot water and space heating to conserve and cut my energy bill.  My current house …
