If you need more proof that Bernie Sanders is either dumber than a rock or bent on leading unsuspecting young people down the road to a Communist utopia from which there is no escape, I can provide it.
Consider his recent interview with the Hill TV, in which he told host Krystal Ball
“They (China) have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization. So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.” Continue reading “Educating Bernie”
Forget Ilhan Omar. I’d like to send Bernie Sanders back to the country from which he came, Canada. No, he wasn’t from Canada originally, but he was there recently. Does that count? After all, he is so in love with that country’s health care system. Can we simply deport him?
It wouldn’t cost that much to send him packing. Montreal, Canada, is only a short 96 miles from his home in Burlington, Vt. No doubt the irascible senator and Democratic presidential candidate has been there many times. Why, he is so enamored with the place that he recently took a busload of people from Detroit to Windsor, Canada, as a campaign stunt, so, please, can we just send him back to Canada, permanently? Continue reading “Let’s Deport Bernie Sanders”
As State of the Union speeches go they are usually yawners. This one, with few exceptions, was a barn burner.
If you missed it, don’t worry; you will see its most dramatic moments replayed over and over in Republican 2020 campaign ads. Trump deftly used this address to expose the Democrats soft underbelly of open borders, devoid of bipartisanship and reason.
The president set the tone when he invited Democrats to “Choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.” Clearly the Democrats, with few exceptions, decided on, gridlock, resistance, vengeance and destruction.
Democratic women, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, did themselves no favor by wearing white, which they said was to express solidarity with working women around the country. They want us to believe Continue reading “SOTU Exposes Democrats Soft Underbelly (A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Insincere Words)”
Why do more college-educated women continue to prefer Democrat candidates over Republican? Surely they are smart enough to understand that capitalism (preferred by Republicans), though not perfect, provides a higher standard of living than socialism (preferred by Democrats)!
Perhaps they simply are too busy working to pay off student loans, while trying to balance a career and motherhood, to notice. These women seem to fall for the line Democrats trot out before every election about the wage gap. It goes like this: Women working full-time make only 82 percent of what a man makes. It’s not fair. No matter how hard you work you are going to wind up on the short end of the stick and, of course, you need Democrats to save you from this ugly form of discrimination.
Democrats are the party that is against all forms of discrimination unless, of course, it involves discrimination against men in general and white and Asian men in particular. Continue reading “Wage Gap Explained, Again”
Our country is at a crossroads. Never before have we faced such an obvious fork in the road. One road, the one favored by politician Hillary Clinton and her Democratic colleagues, promises to lead us to a socialist utopia. The other, favored by businessman Donald Trump and some of his Republican colleagues, promises to get us back on the road toward free-market capitalism.
It is no secret that most career politicians lean toward a socialist system. In this system they control the lion’s share of our money and, in turn, hand out favors. In this system, they make the major decisions that affect our lives. As the government accumulates more and more power, we invariably end up with less. Statistics show that the longer a politician stays in power, the more of our hard-earned money he or she spends. Yet we keep electing the same people over and over and over again, expecting a different result. Continue reading “Election Crossroads: Socialism or Capitalism?”
I have never understood the preoccupation by some with the health of Hillary Clinton. Time would be better spent pointing out her obvious character flaws, her unsuitability for public office and her willingness to exploit political power for personal gain. That said, recent developments have caused us to take a closer look at the man she selected to be her running mate, Senator Tim Kaine.
Like many, I considered him to be somewhat moderate. After all, when he campaigned for governor of Virginia, he ran as a committed Catholic, gun-owning, tax-adverse Democrat. However, his record in government is quite the opposite. By far, the most troubling aspect of his resume is the time he spent in Honduras in the early 80’s between college and law school. It was there that he was taught by a group of Jesuits who broke with the Vatican over the issue of liberation theology — the unholy marriage between Marxist revolutionaries and the church. Continue reading “Tim Kaine: One of Lenin’s Useful Idiots”
I was having brunch with some new, very accomplished, female friends when the subject of the presidential race came up. One of these friends announced that she was a Democrat because she believes in equality.
Women now control 51 percent of all wealth in the U.S. They hold 52 percent of management and professional positions. They earn more degrees of higher learning and own 30 percent of all private businesses. Still, one of the key myths promoted every election cycle is the wag gap. It’s the political unicorn used to persuade millions of women that they are victims of inequality and they need Democrats like Hillary Clinton to save them. Like the legendary horse from classical antiquity, it doesn’t exist. Continue reading “Hillary Clinton Hypocrisy on the Wage Gap (The Democrats Political Unicorn)”
If you are flummoxed as to how an aging, hard-core, avowed socialist like Bernie Sanders is leading in New Hampshire and nipping at Hillary Clinton in the national polls for the Democratic nomination for president, don’t be. It’s really quite simple: We all like free stuff.
Think about it. Why does every product advertised on television these days offer a second product for free.You instinctively know that those advertisers simply double the cost of the product you buy so that they can “give” you that second one you didn’t want or need. However, consumers seem unable to resist this temptation so they buy, paying twice as much as they should have. Of course this charade didn’t begin with television. It’s as old as time.
Little wonder that so many are gaga for Sanders. All he needs is a white beard and we could call him Santa Clause. Continue reading “The Siren Song of Bernie Sanders”
The average life of a democracy is 200 years. Our country has outlived its expiration date largely because it is a democratic republic with a constitution that guarantees our citizens certain inalienable rights and a government with three co-equal branches, each with checks on the other two.
We are now seeing those basic rights eroded by an aggressive Supreme Court. We also are seeing those checks and balances upset by an equally aggressive president and a Congress that is reluctant to use the power at its disposal.
Furthermore, the financial stability of this nation has been undermined by our elected representatives who have learned that the best way to stay in office is by spending our money and doing favors for their supporters.
As a result, our economy is at a near standstill and we are mired in debt. China is bullying us, but we owe so much to that communist country there is really nothing we can do about it. This has to stop before it is too late because, as the Bible says, “The borrower is the slave to the lender.”
Just how far have we fallen down slavery’s slippery slope? Continue reading “USA on Slavery’s Slippery Sloap”
Bernie Sanders, a socialist, has achieved quite a following in the race for the Democratic nomination for president. How many of his followers really know what he stands for?
There was a telling moment in the first Democratic presidential debate in which Anderson Cooper tried to pin him down. It took several tries but Cooper finally backed him into a corner when he said, “You don’t consider yourself a capitalist, though?”
Sander’s final answer to that simple question was, “No I don’t.”
Sanders calls himself a democratic socialist so what exactly is that? Continue reading “What is Democratic Socialism?”
