Did you know? Progressives support Slavery.

There have been many stories in the (so-called) Press in the past few years of small-business owners having their businesses destroyed because they would not engage in activities that violated their religious beliefs.  It seems that most states have "public accommodation" laws that forbid "discrimination" on the basis of race, religion, or "sexual orientation".  These …

R.I.P. Pat Caddell

Pat Caddell died yesterday from complications of a stroke.  He and his good nature will be missed. We met Mr. Caddell on the Hillsdale Cruise to Hawaii last summer.  For a guy who was a Democrat pollster for decades, he sounded surprisingly conservative in his lectures on the ship. We enjoyed his stories of political …

Is This New York Abortion Law Evil?

Or, as Ben Shapiro puts it, New York Governor Cuomo wants to ban the Death Penalty...Except for Unborn Children; go ahead and kill those. Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the most comprehensive abortion law in the United States.  This new law, passed by the now-100%-Democrat controlled Legislature, allows termination of …

Did you vote Democrat on Tuesday?

You did?  This is what you voted for. Antifa protesters outside the home of Tucker Carlson, a Fox News commentator. Protesters outside the home of Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.  Mr. Pai has a wife and children, who were frightened by the angry people shouting outside their home.  They had to …

Who ARE these people?

I found this picture this morning, of Democrat 2020 presidential hopefuls. Just look at these potential candidates. What impressed me about this picture is the expressions on the faces of all four. Every one of them comes across as a scold. Not one smiling face. The three on the right are obviously speaking angrily to …

WAAAAHHH!! We don’t wike Twump! We gonna pwotest WAAHH!

This is how the modern Democrat in Congress thinks these days.  Tonight will be a big speech to both houses of Congress by the 45th President of the United States (yes, he won, you lost).  And the crybabies in the loser Democrat party are wailing, gnashing their teeth, and planning ways to protest the President's …

Blue State Ballot Blues

I live in Snohomish County, Washington, north of Seattle. Yesterday I received my election ballot in the mail, since we have all-mail voting in our state. We have races for County Council, County Executive, and various other lower-level offices (City Councils, Assessor, Treasurer, Clerk, Sheriff...). The State of Washington also has "top-two" primaries, where the …

Thought Experiment-Can a Politician Have Friends?

Have you ever met a politician?  Been friends with one?  I once went out to dinner with a group of friends, one of whom was a politician.  It occurred to me to ask if a politician can ever really have friends, or if everyone they meet or know is a vote to be won.  I …

Rats! I WANTED them to shut down the government!

  During the tense negotiations in DC a while ago, where the D's and R's "negotiated" (scare quotes intended) a spending bill to keep the sainted government running for yet another fiscal year, I was rooting for the R's to simply say NO.  I want them to shut down the government, since much of it …
