Skip, Author at Granite Grok - Page 2 of 1521


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.

Trust Government? Ask an American Indian

Would You Let Any Politician Run Your Business?

Would you let any politician run your business? If the answer is no, WHY would you EVER let them run, in part, an entity that controls not just your business but you and your family?  Are you NUTS?


Trump’s America vs. Biden’s America

We have a family that is: Large – how DARE they have more than 2 kids!  Environmentalism means ZERO kids because there’s too many people on Earth already!

Gracie Gato? I doubt it as you can’t help yourself

So Steve had tipped me off to this post of her “Open letter To the Granitegrok” (as in a “love letter”) at her Granite State Buzz – heh! Once again, we see a Progressive female wanting to be treated equally getting upset because, well, I treated her like I would any man.

King Newsom

Everyone ‘Here’ Is All Happy Dance That Newsom Just Crowned Himself King

The eco-Socialists at Treehugger joyfully embraced California Governor Newsom’s unilateral Executive Order.  To radically change Californians’ lives by no longer allowing gas-powered vehicles to be sold beginning in 2035. But he also said that gas cars could still be used up to and after that date.

Constitutional convention: yea or nay?

Notable Quote – Society vs Government

Just as the Founders considered and created a Constitution that would guarantee the Separation of Powers, the philosophy behind it was to set up bulwarks to deny people the ability to aggregate power unto themselves and their special interests.

So, Now the Left Wants More “Economic Colonialism”?

All we’ve been hearing about lately is racism, incipient bias, BLM, oppression, unconscious bias, police brutality, equity (LeftSpeak for quotas), inequalities, the list seems never-ending. One word, however, that has only been mentioned in passing has been “colonialism.”

Translating Outbound U-Hauls Into Tax Revenues (Downward)

San Francisco and California have made themselves shining examples. Couldn’t happen to a better City and State. When you make yourselves unhealthy to live in from a financial standpoint, no amount of “Best weather in the US” (frankly, Hawai’i is better).

Keith Olberman

Bitter Clingers, Deplorables…..and now Maggots?

Yep, for sure – Keith Olbermann, who should really stick to reporting and commenting on sports, has decided to go all Jim Carey (who really should just stick to just acting), and showed us all how unhinged one’s TDS can make them.
