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.

Quick Thought: Is China starting to flail like a mortally wounded animal?

Observation from Instapundit: DISTURBING THOUGHTS FROM A FRIEND ON FACEBOOK: “At this point China may be like Wilhelmine Germany in 1914 after the mobilization orders went out. The Plans are being executed. To stop before a predetermined victory condition, such as the surrender of Taiwan, risks the collapse of the military and the economy and …

Disappointed to see this from the College Republicans: Statement on Peaceful Protest in Manchester

Sigh, I guess this will mean I’ll get dropped from yet another email list….c’est la! I saw something in this Presser from the NH Federation of College Republicans that made my heart sink and my brain go “WHAT! Don’t they KNOW better than to think / write this???  Emphasis mine: For Immediate Release: 05/30/2020 Press …

DISQUS Doodlings: Karens, Karens, Karens all around – even if they’re named Laureen

GraniteGrok would be FAR less of a place to be without our commenters. SMART, too. But there are exceptions. I don’t mind at all when people from the other side of an argument come over to present their point of view. In fact, I’m of the opinion that Conservatives MUST go out and do battle …

Palate Cleanser (literally): “Where Restaurants Have Reopened Across the U.S.”

America eats out. A lot! One of the things that I kinda knew but was hammered home as local groceries ran out of things was that there are TWO logistic chains – one residential and one for anything commercial. That latter part was about 40% of our food supply – and was caught right in …

EPIC! -> “Americans don’t get ruled!”

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat and a FABULOUSLY wealthy businessman is part of the family that owns the Hyatt Hotels. He Effectively “bought” the Governorship from what I have read. His problem, like many Governors at this time: they think they’ve been elected Kings and Queens.

DISQUS Doodlings – Part 2: the TreeHugger Eco-Socialist may not have a firm grasp on Price

Well, Part 1 was about eco-Socialists not really understanding choice, Supply and Demand, and the importance of Price in describing value to either a Seller or a Consumer and how it is EXTREMELY important in managing markets between 10, 100s, 1000s or Billions of people by acting as a “Black Box” indicator (e.g., you don’t …

Reps-Hall NH House

Really, Union Leader, the House GOP “revolts”???

I would say that Republicans stuck to their guns (in some cases, literally) and said in effect “Decisions have consequences.” Steve Shurtleff, the Democrat Speaker of the NH House, YOU shut the House down and we don’t have to go along with rewriting YOUR rules to make it work.”

DISQUS Doodlings – the TreeHugger Eco-Socialist may not have a firm grasp on Price

I do like going out to find some debates – I think that all Conservatives should bring our philosophies and ideas into the Arena of Ideas to make the case in places we’d normally not be wanted. Like, as always, TreeHugger. I’m sorta like the Bruce Currie over there with the exception that I never …
