‘Free’ Bernie Sanders

February 2, 2016

It is not surprising that aging Hillary Clinton is having trouble getting the youth vote but young Democrat voters overwhelmingly supporting the even more aging Bernie Sanders has surprised many. However, when you consider what Bernie stands for, the reasons become obvious.

Bernie Sanders is strongly pushing for a “free” college education. That is, of course, attractive to anyone facing the rising cost of a college education and the ensuing burden of a student loan. It certainly speaks to today’s youth who have been thoroughly indoctrinated by a liberal education system advocating the socialistic ideal of cradle-to-grave government care. How we are to pay for that “free” education is not clear but it is also not relevant to those wanting and expecting freebies.

Sanders calls himself a “democratic socialist” but that distinction is not understood by most and it is certainly lost on today’s youth. The failure of our education system is responsible for the lack of knowledge concerning socialism’s failure throughout history and, consequently, today’s youth are gravitating towards socialism’s vacuous promise of a utopian society. The “Occupy” movement and unrealistic demands heard on college campuses are a product of this ignorance of socialism.

Sanders takes advantage of this ignorance with his socialistic promises of a “free” college education, guaranteed health care, and $15 an hour minimum wage – in other words, freebies. He demonizes corporations and the rich and rails against income inequality, an easy sell to young workers starting at low salaries. His 90% tax rate for the rich sounds fine to those far from the top but it is not enough and the middle class will have to reach further into their pockets to help pay for all the “free” stuff.

At the age of 74, Bernie Sanders is not considered too old for Democrats who expressed concern about John McCain’s age (71) in 2008 and Ronald Reagan’s age (69) in 1980. JFK was 43–yrs-old when he took office and Obama, 47-years-old in 2008, was touted as a youthful and energetic change much needed for the country. Meanwhile, Democrats accuse Marco Rubio (44) and Ted Cruz (45) of being much too young to be president.

What is most certainly getting old is the hypocrisy – along with Sanders (74) and Hillary (68).

Politically Incorrect Facts

June 9, 2015

One of the few people courageous enough to be politically incorrect is Ann Coulter and she does it simply by stating facts – with an “in-your-face” attitude. For this progressive transgression she is scorned and demeaned, but rarely are her facts proven wrong. Currently, she is a voice of reason warning of the danger runaway illegal immigration brings but, unfortunately, far too many people are wrapped up in political correctness to listen.

From Ann Coulter

Although you will miss the lush analytical context of the full case made in my smash new book, “Adios, America : The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole”, here are some more startling facts from my book that the anti-American crowd doesn’t want you to know:

Our ludicrous “anchor baby” policy was invented out of whole cloth by Justice William Brennan and slipped into a footnote in a Supreme Court opinion in 1982…If an illegal alien drops a baby on American soil, the entire family can access welfare programs that were supposed to be for U.S. citizens…On average, college graduates in the United States pay about $30,000 more in taxes each year than they get back in government services, while those without a high school degree get back about $35,000 more in government services than they pay in taxes…Only about 7 percent of Americans do not have a high school diploma…about 75 percent of illegal aliens do not have a high school diploma…after Israel completed a fence along its border in 2013, the number of illegal aliens entering the country dropped to zero (Contrary to repeated assertions that fences don’t work)… In 2010, New York state prisons held more than 4,000 inmates from 10 Latin American and Caribbean nations, and fewer than 150 inmates from all of Western Europe…There are already more Hispanics than whites in two states, New Mexico and California…



You Don’t Think We Are Doomed?

May 8, 2013

A Reader’s Digest Poll provided proof that we are, indeed, doomed. It conducted a poll of 1000 people (how that few people can actually be construed to represent the entire country is perplexing) to find who the most trusted people in the country are. The results are just plain stupid – and frightening.

Number one on the list is Tom Hanks, followed by Sandra Bullock, Denzel Washington, and Meryl Streep. Reading the rest just numbs the senses further. If this country is as enamored with movie stars and celebrities as this poll suggests, it is just a matter of time until we implode from the vacuous mindset that prevails.

Think about this for a second. Movie stars make a living pretending to be someone else or, in other words, making you believe in something that is not real – and this makes them trustworthy in people’s eyes. Following this rationale, it should not be surprising that Obama and Hillary Clinton also showed up on the list, though far below the movie stars.

If you think this is just an anomaly, recall that John Stewart, a comedian, was once deemed the most trusted “newsman” in the country – possibly by the same 1000 people polled for Reader’s Digest. Even if it were the same 1000 people, it would still be frightening to know that many crazy people are loose in society – and their votes count as much as yours does. Further proof of our demise is certain to show up in future polls when the legalization of marijuana becomes widespread.

Yes, we are doomed.

Here Comes the Immigration Reform Farce

April 11, 2013

A bipartisan group of senators is ready to put forth a so-called “broad” immigration bill that is nothing but a farce. In today’s skewed political climate, “bipartisan” is only mentioned when conservatives cave in to the loud, shrill demands of the left. If a liberal moves to the right, he is called a traitor, a racist, or much worse, but never “bipartisan”.

Amnesty, the only goal of progressives’ immigration reform, is on the way. The “bipartisan” demand to secure the borders first, an absolute necessity before real immigration reform can begin, was given lip service and then watered-down to appease the “bipartisan” senators who will now pretend they fought hard for, and won, a working compromise.

The bill allows ten years of planning and/or securing the borders before any real impediment to citizenship can be put into place for failing to comply. Meanwhile, a path to citizenship for illegals will begin immediately with nothing to stop it from morphing into full-blown amnesty. In the span of ten years with little border security, that “path” to citizenship will become a fully paved, toll-free, four-lane, busy highway.

True comprehensive immigration reform is impossible until the borders are secure. Therefore, other immigration reforms will not even become a topic for discussion. One of those other reforms in need of addressing is assimilation.

According to a Hudson Institute’s comparison study of native-born to naturalized American citizens, native-born Americans are: 30% more likely to consider themselves American rather than citizens of the world; 30% more likely to believe the U.S. Constitution is a higher legal authority than international law; 31% more likely to believe schools should focus on American citizenship rather than ethnic pride; and 23% more likely to believe all citizens understand English.

Assimilation allowed the US to become a successful “melting pot” never before seen in the history of the world. We have become a less cohesive society the more we have ignored the importance of assimilation. We can’t realistically address this or other reforms until the borders are secure. This latest bill is a farce, reforms nothing, and opens the door to chaos.

Identity Politics: The Denial of American Exceptionalism

July 23, 2011

From  the American Thinker:

In 1630 John Winthrop established the basis of American exceptionalism with these words: “For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.”

Since that time, America has stood for the promise of escape from tribal loyalties and hatreds, the limitations of social heredity, and from the cruelties of religious intolerance. Uniquely, America remains true to its cultural underpinnings — founded upon a substrate of Anglo-Saxon society with Judeo-Christian values — while still welcoming new citizens through a bonafide assimilative process.  Generations of people came here not merely in search of new space to grow, but on a quest for this cultural paradigm that defines America.

However, with the advent of the civil rights era a new approach to American self-consciousness emerged, one founded upon the belief that America is fundamentally flawed.  Under this belief system any greatness this nation possesses derives not from our cultural foundations and founding principles but rather exists only to the extent that America is deemed a blank slate upon which any social, cultural, and moral preferences may be projected with an equal claim to legitimacy.

The civil rights movement, initially focused upon eliminating arbitrary, non-merit based discrimination, in the late 1960s shifted to the goal of promoting “diversity.”  Thus, “equality of opportunity” was supplanted by the new objective of equality of result. This change created a politically hardened left-wing no longer committed to incremental change, but instead dedicated to the deconstruction of traditional America and the narrative that goes along with it.

Jesse Jackson: Open Mouth, Insert Foot

July 22, 2011

Here’s Jesse suggesting that “the death of the Swedish people should not be seen as something negative.”

The question is, why is anyone standing there listening to what he has to say?

Changing Face of America’s Youth

July 18, 2011

From CNN:

The United States is walking a path to greater diversity. And younger people are leading the way.

For the first time in national history, the majority of young people in two states — California and New Mexico — now identify as Hispanic, according to census data released this year.

In eight additional states — Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, Maryland and Hawaii — white children are in the minority compared with peers from other racial and ethnic groups combined, according to data analyzed by William Frey at the Brookings Institution.

All Right. Now I’m Confused

July 17, 2011

This week California Governor Jerry Brown (or Governor Moonbeam, as he’s often known) signed legislation guaranteeing that California school children learn about all the many gay, lesbian, transgender, and bi-sexual folks who have contributed to the nation’s historical events in some way.

Now, this confuses me. Because if we are supposed to treat GLTB folks like everyone else, then why are we singling them out? And if being gay, bisexual, lesbian or transgendered shouldn’t make any difference, why are we identifying sexual orientation? Who cares? If someone did something great, good for them. And if we have to identify a person’s sexual orientation, are we going to point out every straight person who did something great along the way too?

Hmm. I thought not.


Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown said Thursday he had signed a bill that will require public schools in the state to teach students about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americas.

The bill, believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, will also require teachers to provide instruction on the role of people with disabilities.

“History should be honest,” Brown said in a statement.

“This bill revises existing laws that prohibit discrimination in education and ensures that the important contributions of Americans from all backgrounds and walks of life are included in our history books. It represents an important step forward for our state, and I thank Senator Leno for his hard work on this historic legislation.”

“Europe is Dying,” US Population Expert Tells Senate Hearing

June 27, 2011


 Given the precipitous decline in the birthrates of European countries, all anti-natal programs funded by the United States should immediately be replaced by pro-natal programs, one top population expert recently told the U.S. Senate.

“It doesn’t matter whether we call them reproductive health programs, family planning programs, or population control programs,” said Stephen Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute (PRI). “They all have the same effect: they force down the birth rate in countries that are already dying. Such programs are only making a bad problem worse.”

The hearing before the Senate Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe focused on the implications for the security, as well as the economic and social developments in Europe, due to demographic decline marked by diminishing and rapidly aging populations, in most of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) 56 participating states.

“Tequila Party” Aims to Increase Latino Voting Bloc

June 15, 2011

From CNN:

By now, people in the United States and elsewhere in the world are familiar with the Tea Party, but there’s a new social movement on the political block — it’s called the “Tequila Party,” and its leaders say the group is serving as a wake-up call to the Latino voting bloc.
Tequila Party organizers describe their movement as a nonpartisan group that launched this year on May 5 — Cinco de Mayo, to mark the Mexican holiday. It has enlisted both Democrats and Republicans to get the more than 20 million eligible Latino voters to become “consistent primary and general election voters,” the movement’s website says.
