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.

DISQUS Doodlings: “If we want to make better decisions or do things in our society’s self-interest, we need to be tricked into doing them”

Yeah, Treehugger time again: “Environmentalists aren’t voting. This plan could help”. Environmentalists are shockingly bad at voting. During the 2014 midterm, only 21 percent of environmentalist registered voters actually voted, compared to 44 percent of general registered voters. Environmental problems are, by their very “nature,” large-scale problems that require large-scale solutions. That’s why voting is so important — the government …

Civilian Disarmament bills: Progressives don’t care about results, only intent

HB101 and HB564 have to do with gun restrictions in school zones (or as I call these kinds of bills the Second Amendment’s death by a thousand cuts). NH Rep Sharon Nordgren’s testimony was reading a letter from a bunch of Progressives (and remember, Progressives is just a focus group redo of “Socialists”). This gave …

GrokInterview: Frank Edelblut, NH Commissioner of Education – Part 6

Why, Skip, is GraniteGrok (especially you) spending so much time on education lately?  Is there nothing better to be talking about?  The short answer, the plain answer, is no.  It IS one of our culture’s “High Ramparts” that the Left decided to target and they were willing to spend decades in influencing, capturing, taking over, …
