I Wonder….

I am featuring a new segment on this provocative blog. It will be called “I wonder.” I may probe some of the strangest questions of current politics and culture.

In this first installment, I wonder… how Democrats can run on a platform against high healthcare costs? When Dems have run on healthcare over ten years, yet these costs are the direct result of their policies and actions.

Healthcare premiums and deductibles of have exploded, exponentially, while Dems claimed they were fixing healthcare. And how’d that work out for you?

Now Dems want people to support and vote for them based on those high healthcare costs.

I’m still wondering… and they are still wandering.

Bernie on roll losing votes?

Townhall — Matt Vespa

You know, it’s hard to lose votes as a Democrat in San Francisco. It may be even harder to lose voters if you’re a self-identified democratic socialist. The Left coast is brimming with them. And yet, Sen. Bernie Sanders has managed to lose a voter in San Francisco for simply being a bad customer at a local restaurant. He was a miserable curmudgeon apparently. He was rude to the owner’s staff. That owner says he’s lost his vote. It may be just one vote,…/

Well, what do you expect? Ever met a real nice socialist or commie? That’s kind of their thing. He could be following Kirsten Gillibrand, who’s motto is “I’m not very polite!”

A Note To Veggie Pimps

Hey, you want to make me eat more “Vegetables”?
Then stop relating all my favorite veggies to sex organs in ads. You can start there.

Hell, are you going to rob them of their innocence too? Geesh. You’re never done, are you?

But calling someone a vegetable is not particularly endearing, you know. Shouldn’t do that.

Got a problem with any of that? Talk to the turnip! (he’s on my side)

Yeah, I’m talking to you veggie police, the anti-meat gestapo. I know you’re out there!

A Helping Hand to Democrat Candidates

I apologize here but I’m beginning to feel sorry for Democrat candidates.

CNN talked to Terry McAuliffe about Trump and 2020. He said Democrat candidates, besides demagoguing the Trump agenda, should tell people what they are going to do on the issues. You know, what they are going to do to fix the mess Dems say we are in.

So, against my better judgment, I’m going to help by saying what they are going to do, if elected. Because they are so busy attacking Trump, I’ll say it for them.

They are going to:

  • Raise your taxes (repeatedly)
  • Give illegal aliens free healthcare.
  • Give everyone free healthcare – institute healthcare tax to offset costs.
  • Give illegal aliens free college tuition.
  • Give everyone free college education.
  • Restructure the Supreme Court, so it is forever stacked for liberals.
  • Abolish ICE.
  • Abolish or drastically reduce the Department of Homeland Security. Break it up at least so agencies cannot talk to and coordinate with each other.
  • Eliminate any walls on the border.
  • Hook up any illegal immigrants with our welfare system immediately.
  • Provide amnesty or citizenship to illegal aliens here now.
  • Spend much more in Latin America to fix countries so people will not want to come.
  • Re-politicize the DOJ. Construct barriers to firing anyone for due cause.
  • Eliminate charter schools because parents and children cannot have a choice.
  • Raise minimum wage to 15 dollars.
  • Convert our healthcare system into single payer Medicare for all.
  • Eliminate private health insurance.
  • Enact the ‘assault weapons’ ban
  • Expand national gun control over all guns and ammunition.
  • Remove names or statues of anyone tied to anything we deem offensive.
  • Give reparations to African Americans.
  • Pass laws against white structural racism rampant in our country.
  • Remove funding from the military to apply it toward our domestic programs.
  • Outlaw coal and oil development and target those companies in the sector.
  • Lower the national voter age to 16.
  • Remove any limitations on abortion with national laws.
  • Reenact the death tax.
  • Raise federal taxes on wealthy to 70% on an upward scale from there.
  • Repeal the entire Tax cut legislation.
  • Open immigration to all who want to come. No one is denied entry.
  • Cut police forces and any government subsidies they receive.
  • Cut border patrol.
  • Release 1/3 of all inmates from prison. Close a third of our prisons.
  • Return the right to vote to all ex-cons.
  • Let all residents of any city or town have the right to vote.
  • Reenter Paris Accord, whatever the cost, with savings from our military.
  • Enact the Green New Deal.
  • Reestablish the Iran deal. (consider penalty funds to Iran)
  • Stop all money and aid to Israel. Increase all aid to Palestine.
  • Politicize the EPA and then have them write the strictest most restrictive environmental and economic limitations known to man.

 

Well, it’s only a start since it is still early in the campaign. I know this is a pretty extensive and aggressive list, but they are up to it. And a little publicity goes a long way.

Crazy As Normal

This topic has been marinating for some time, and I suppose this is as good a time as any to drop it out here. It is an increasingly broad subject, covering many areas.

Call me crazy but…. no, forget the but, just call me crazy. And I promise not to disappoint you. How’s that sound?

These days it’s easier just to admit you are crazy at the beginning. There is a reason. I mean you will be called that anyway, so why not use it to your advantage? Take the sting out it. Embrace it; make it your own!

So I’ve been through discussion cycles many times with Leftists where the more right you are, the crazier they try to paint you. I know sanity is not actually in vogue these days. Not if you pay attention to what passes for normal in our current events.

Crazy has become the new normal, if you notice that? So those outliers and sane people like us, and I do include myself, are now out on the margins. In fact, we’re now right where they want us. For years they have been working on abolishing normal, or normalizing abnormal. They finally succeeded.

You name the subject or issue and the response would be “that’s crazy”. That’s because it is. Now the real crazies are those who believe it is normal. They just don’t know it. That’s what makes them crazy by any measurement. They like to pretend that either normal never really existed or it is now deceased. So they’ve already answered any question about the obituary and just moved on. This fits the agenda of radical Leftists.

But if you don’t accept their new crazy as normal, then you must be crazy. The problem is I am wondering if there really is a way back from here? I mean it used to be recovery pros told addicts, when they stop drinking or gave up doing drugs, some semblance of normalcy would come back, in time. But will it this time…no matter how much time we give it?

The Left finally shot that gap between the Milky Way and everything else. And I don’t think it is coming back. But these days, sobriety without drugs and alcohol can only conclude how crazy everything is. They’ve all gone mad. They don’t need drugs to play games with their mind. North is South. (I’ve made that case for political chaos before)

My guess is simply progressives (commies, Marxists, radicals) do not want us returning to any normal sanity. They worked hard enough to marginalize it. Heck, they don’t want sanity to even have a seat at the table. They want crazy on one side and crazier on the other side. Have them shake hands in the middle and work it all out. But you know crazier typically wins now, it has to. That’s the other new rule.

That way if you should try to apply logic, then illogic must win every time. This really is their destination for us. Only the trip isn’t over yet, we’re still going on. We can’t even say if we’re halfway through, or three quarters, or one third. We don’t know exactly, only that we started. And onward we go, which isn’t necessarily forward. Sans the crazy hats.

Remember the ET movie with that line “ET phone home?” It’s like there is no home to phone. They cut the lines. They don’t want you to know there ever was a home, much less a phone. All there is now is this place in time that has no relevance to any other place in time. And memory is the last thing to be destroyed because you cannot know who you are, or from where, if you have no memory.

See how crazy it all is now, in some twisted and sinister way? If you mention some truth, they will call you a conspiracy nut. No, truth is nothing to mess or fool with these days. It’s dangerous too. Enough of it could even kill you.

Like on the Mueller probe, they want you to believe all of that was really normal and all the other stuff you and I see of actual truth is Crazy Town. Gaslighting personified. They’ve done a pretty good job of programming their people to go along with that script. They get to write it as it goes. Rather convenient.

At this point, I am starting to think that — aside from all those things leftists rail about — any semblance of our real “Normal” is probably one of their biggest enemies. They prefer it not returning, until that is they can completely control it. Well, then it would not be real normalcy, but faux normal. A fraud.

So, be well my fellow crazies. Our time is not over but it will take work from here. See, I don’t mind being called crazy if their new definition of normalcy is insanity with no limits.

Baltimore Sunblock: no thanks

After a cleanup effort spawned by many volunteers taking tons of trash from Baltimore, the Sun editorial board says thanks but no thanks, we got this race thing. (in their way)

What do you get for gestures of goodwill and your efforts? You get the finger from elitists trying to prop up status quo politicians of Baltimore’s inner city.

And pols like Cummings would rather use any publicity for fundraising opportunities to get re-elected. They would rather channel any dialogue to play politics as usual. The lamestream media, Baltimore Sun will chip in to give them kudos for their legacy failures.

“We assume it was pure motives that led a Trump supporter to launch a cleanup in Cummings’ district, right?”

Baltimore Sun

It made for good photos, compelling videos and catchy Twitter hashtags. A group of conservatives rolled their pickup trucks into one of West Baltimore’s most impoverished neighborhoods Monday for a cleanup day. Loaded down with trash bags and shovels, they cleared alleyways of old tires, food containers, paper and other debris. They pulled up weeds and cut away overgrown grass. The group posted before and after pictures on social media showing their progress.

The effort was organized by pro-Trump activist Scott Presler. He claimed the event was not political. Yes, he was inspired to come by tweets from President Donald Trump describing the area, represented by U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, as a “rodent infested mess.” But the visit wasn’t about showing support or animosity for either man, he said…./

More at https://www.baltimoresun.com/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-0808-conservatives-clean-west-baltimore-20190806-hmc2gndnhfhodch4yxromipgnq-story.html

And then, to finish it off, they throw in the usual condescending leftist lecture in the face of your goodwill.

We also hope Mr. Presler keeps his promise to return to Baltimore once a month. It would definitely give his motives more credibility. It might also give him better perspective about the city’s problems than any single visit can provide. Maybe it could even lead him and his followers to advocate for federal housing, health care, transportation, education, criminal justice, civil rights and anti-poverty policies aimed at urban communities.

This is akin to someone washing your car for you, and you run over to say, “you missed a spot!” Then tell them “and you better show up every weekend now.”

But they failed, too, to point out the difference of what the left does vs. what the right does. We see it all the time. Instead of a cleanup effort, Leftists hold rallies to shout epithets at the president or his supporters, or against law enforcement.

They leave trails of trash from their “marches” — you know those posed protests, but are really choreographed fundraisers for Democrats and media consumption.

That’s what we get from the left, all politics all the time. Power and control is all they care about. Your neighborhoods’ woes are only their means to further their political ends.

And if a person is only showing his animosity for Cummings by cleaning up an area in his district, then what am I missing? That’s some heavy animosity.

Nationalism vs. Socialism

I believe we have an ultimate grudge-match framed in the coming election. It boils down to terms more than narrative. The lefts’ narratives are amusing but the terms are deadly.

The terms are simple. Nationalism vs, Socialism. What could be a greater feud than that?

While some people may assert that you can have nationalism with socialism, it is a distorted illusion. Their kind of socialism will have no part in nationalism. It is their enemy. After all, nationalism is what they rail against and what drives the left.

Except when Obama was president, then they had a faux nationalism. It was really socialism disguised as fake nationalism. But it was as phony as a three dollar bill. They only used it to sell their socialism. Because at least then socialism was not out of the closet. They had to pretend socialism was not what they wanted. They created a sense of nationalism.

Now, any pretense is long gone about not wanting socialism. It is all the rage, socialists are kool. Bernie just ushered in the left’s real passion, Democrats want socialism. And when do they want it? Now. Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism.

To a person, every one of the Democrat candidates did follow him. They all compete for who can be a pure socialist. They realize there is no better way to buy votes than promising free stuff. And no better way to bring down America than giving free stuff to everyone, even illegals. It breaks your will and breaks the government’s budget.

The Left has apparently decided something else they now like almost as much. Executive power and executive orders. That is what it will take to enact most of their pipe dreams.

You know the rule of the left: never let democracy get in the way of socialism schemes. If people don’t like it, then find a way around them. If it can’t pass in law, then find a way using fiat law. Or find a judge to enact exactly what you want. Create such a struggle between branches or the people that they cannot say no. Make it seem inevitable.

But nationalism, there really is nothing conspiratorial about that. And you cannot fool the people about what is real nationalism. They know the difference.

By the way, Happy Fourth of July!

America, are you insulted yet?

So America, are you sufficiently insulted yet? Democrats want to take your tax-money and give it to illegal aliens to buy votes.

Democrats want to create entitlements for illegals — or illegal entitlements if you prefer. We are beyond pandering, they are just buying votes now with our money.

How about giving Dems a big round of applause? I mean they stood right there on the stage and said their federal single-payer healthcare plans cover illegal aliens, to cheers. I’m sure they heard that all the way to Guatemala and beyond. Your tax-money will lure them.

The only real message to any of this — whether it is free college or medical coverage for illegals — is that all they have to do is get here and presto they become instant recipients. But we should be perfectly agreeable to this vote purchasing scheme?

It is bad enough that illegals are already costing us so much and Dems will not do anything to stop it. Democrats want to double down on ignorance at your expense.

Comrade de Blasio Does It Again

At the first Democrat dumb-dumb debate, Bill de Blasio issued this economic decree:

We need to “break up corporations when they don’t serve our democracy.”

That tells you all you need to know about the state of the Left in America. And that actually passes for standard fare with Democrats.

Lunatic Mainstream Living Large

I can’t choose but if I had to pick the theme song for the left, it would definitely be “Lunatic Fringe.” Well, until now. It was the perfect reminder of what Democrats are.

There is a potential in any theme to outlive its utility. So now even that one is a problem. They have moved past that point to mainstream lunacy. Now if you aren’t loony they marginalize you. Evolution is complete, messy as it is.

And there is no more fringe, you see. The crazies are not only in charge but everyone is crazy now — so who is left to complain? Crickets.

We all knew the day would come when lunatics would run the whole show. There could still be an occasional sideshow of moderation but now even that is being abolished. Dems don’t want any sane voices on the left to be heard at all anymore. The crazier the better.

When Claire McCaskill was running her last election trying to say she was not one of those Crazy Democrats, she lost. The joke was on her. They are really all crazy Democrats. But they are okay about it. Actually, they worked so hard to get there. (lyrics)

Lunatic fringe
I know you’re out there
You’re in hiding
And you hold your meetings
I can hear you coming
I know what you’re after
We’re wise to you this time (wise to you this time)
We won’t let you kill the laughter

They aren’t the fringe anymore. And we are getting past the laughter phase.

If the policies were not crazy enough already, the Pied Piper of socialism just announced that convicts in prisons should vote. Now this was just crazy enough that it made me realize the point is to mention this crazy stuff so rational people would make reasoned arguments about why that is not such a good idea. And they’d be right. But the crazies aren’t listening at all. They want it because it is crazy and so are they.

You can’t rationalize with that — without going into the crazy anyway.

But you won’t get too far
‘Cause you’ve got to blame someone
For your own confusion

Their daily deluge of euphoric crack has the effect that we can only talk about one crazy thing at a time. Well, like convicts voting. In areas with a large prison population, does that mean they can vote for the sheriff and the District Attorney? Let them pick judges too. Exactly, it also dilutes citizens’ votes and disenfranchises them. What an ironic, surreal proposal. Yet we will be forced to point out how absurd it is.

What’s even worse was right after Pied-Piper Bernie announced it, some of the other major candidates jumped aboard. Kamala Harris says it is a conversation we need to have. No, some things don’t even deserve a conversation, yet here we are. Dumb is just dumb.

So when is Bernie campaigning in Leavenworth because I want to see that? How do you pander to cell block C? Does everyone want to have their vote watered down by a convict behind bars, doing life for a murder or killing a cop? That’s the justice Bernie has in mind.

These ideas are so bad, and crazy, that you can really only take one absurdity at a time.

Remember his theme: our fundamental political and economic transformation. Makes you wonder how crazy his economic policies could be, you know, under the guise of “justice”? That’s the problem, they are selling all this craziness to us as justice.

We’re on guard this time (on guard this time)
Against your final solution

When they go to Crazy Red it is a challenge. But the time we can dismiss it as that has passed. If given the chance and power, all this and more become possibilities for them. No longer can we say “that can never happen.” They are crazy enough for that and more.

We all know you’re out there
Can you feel the resistance?

The resistance is to sanity. It might not be our “democracy” that really needs saving.

Update: inmates have voting rights in Vermont and Maine. And were never lost.

New Deal…. Old Problem

If the 2020 scrimmage warm up is teaching us anything, it is holding up a reflection of what our future really could look like with champions of doom. Not a pretty picture.

I know, some past elections were a positive time of reflection when we could look at what is ahead with enthusiasm. It re-energized people on the concept of what is possible. But that is reversed in this election. With fear and anxiety we can look at what we see roll out in enemy plans. I say enemy because it is.

Another dynamic at work is an old principle. The old mantra is divide and conquer. It has been the strategy of wars and arguments over centuries. But something else is afoot now. We see that unification can be a threat as well. How so?

Well, the left continually hones its lockstep unification. Maybe their objective is to divide us but their unity is much of the problem. This mob mentality grows its obsession to stomp over anything in its way. Unity is its holy grail. The right never operated like that. But mob rule has had its successes over years. Worse, it has had a wearing effect on the right.

Think of all the media has done in 2 years. It’s goal is to break the enthusiasm of the right. Tear at the foundations of what keeps people together. It jackhammers on the will of the people daily. Dividing opponents may be their objective, but their unity is the threat.

It is a coalition of disgruntled, grievance-riddled groups – all with their own demands – that have united under an anti-American banner of resistance, sedition and disdain for anything productive for our country. Time-honored principles are cast aside.

That has all been replaced by a negative critique of America. It is an endless criticism of the US, what it has stood for and things we held dear as a people. Then it fills the airwaves with its critique, as the prevailing mainstream thought.

This coalition despises any memory of a good America. Progress and forward are code words in its obsession to blot out and deconstruct the past. The objective is to divide us from the America we know, the real America. Does fundamental transformation, of our political and economic systems, sound exciting?

For example, Bernie Sanders did a townhall with Fox in Bethlehem PA. The location didn’t matter as much as the content. Bernie came prepared, like usual, with his supporters.

The questions were asked, how would you pay for it? Explain your healthcare plans? All the questions morphed into his critique on America. Remember too, his 2016 campaign really never ended. So he has been campaigning all along. Everything he said was just a criticism of what is America. Naturally, his socialist ideas were embedded in it. But it was a deacon’s pie of class warfare, political and economic animosity, linked with the promises of free stuff to solve all the problems. They bring their own problems and solutions.

The first problem it needs to solve is the vote. So buying votes becomes their number one priority. He looks to be gaining with young people in that department.

The prescription for their socialist wave is a never-ending criticism America. It’s a catchy habit. They don’t have to answer or be accountable for anything. Just blame it on America. Except they have no answers. Their only interest is in using the critique as a tool to break down America. Break down our will, break down our economy, break down our politics. Then they substitute their mob rule for the will of the people.

So Bernie showed us nothing new. It was all the old mantra. Every question to him was turned around and redirected at someone else. He has a book now, did you hear? Of course he does. They all do. His wealth is justified, you know, while everyone else’s is questioned. Do they really need that much money? Bernie justified capitalism while railing against it. He made it clear he would not apologize for capitalizing on a best-selling book. But others need to apologize for their offensive, greedy wealth.

This mob rule doesn’t have to be a real majority; just a very loud, demanding one. They have never been this close to consummating power as they are now. Then they will align themselves with every evil ally they can. We cannot allow this to take hold.

When the socialists and commies talk they sound so sincere. Though they are far from innocent. They sound angry most of the time. I think anger is their emphasis for justification. It is like a self-confirming tool meant to convince others they are right.

Berine has another rhetorical device. When given any question about a policy, he says he voted against this or that. That leaves him off the hook of accountability? Then he has to answer no serious questions about it. He just says he voted against it. He was against everything, but what he is for should scare the hell out of you.

He also started by saying that he bases his philosophy on his beliefs. That is interesting because that is what it all comes down to, his belief. It is so ingrained in him the word ideologue is not strong enough. At least he admits it all rests on his beliefs. The same as Marxists and commies. And he has a lot of other like-minded people believing it too. Remember how critical belief was to Obama. His whole campaign (and presidency after) was faith-based on belief. He had nothing else of experience. Their belief is the bomb.

Socialists’ picture of America is morbidly disturbing. Well, it isn’t based on the positive.

AOC creature does IKEA furniture

Somewhere Deep in the bowels of DC office space dwells the fire-breathing AOC creature.

Welcome to the insane asylum, otherwise known as the Democrat party. And the lead spokespersons, aka mouthpieces, seem to be the worst patients in the asylum.

Take AOC for example. It’s so refreshing to be lectured on morality and gubmint by a 29 year-old brat who’s a former barmaid. Hard to imagine a worse fate for Americans.

Now she puts together Ikea furniture somewhere, while making videos to scold the electorate and the right. It’s not really clear who she is speaking to though you get the gist of her spew. She seems to have a compulsive need to call out someone constantly. For what? That apparently is sparked by dissent with her.

Now she’s lecturing us about our future progeny. But she has already told young people maybe think about having kids. Why do I think officially committing her to the criminally insane would not even stop her incessant dribble? She’s totally out of control.

While some people say “let her keep talking, she’s the best thing for Republicans,” she has that nagging way of making a bigger mockery of our DC Swamp. The O now stands for obnoxious. This is the new thing…this is the future of politics?

Nancy and Auntie Maxine, you’ve been outflanked.

It’s hard to believe we have disintegrated to this juvenile level, and that people would accept it as the new normal. Apparently there is no one waiting in the wings with the hook to pull her off. She keeps the daily disgust meter pegged. Good for Republicans? I find it hard to think she’d be good for anything.

Here’s the latest Poor Me video.

“How do you stay grounded and focused?” Really, who the hell said AOC was focused?

I guess DIY-TV was not interested in her instructional videos, so we’re stuck with them. She reminds us that the internet documents everything. And that she pities us for our role in history right now. Wow, call the men in the white suits, she’s off.

Note the vitriol. “Like why wouldn’t you all listen to me…an arrogant, narcissistic 29 year old, self-professed know it all? Huh, why wouldn’t you?”

She’s writing herself into history, or into the new Twilight Zone. Rod, we need a good intro for this one! When that crazy dog finally got the bumper.

Exhibit A for the psych evaluation. One thing for sure, nothing of her history will be lost on the internet. Kids, don’t grow up to do this!

(Any time someone starts off a video by getting on the floor and eating popcorn, I usually tune out. I should have followed my rule.)

Trust Dictionaries

I am going to leave this one up to Webster’s who seems to understand the nuances of Socialism and Communism vs. Capitalism.

The gripe I have is with Leftists who state a simple definition of Socialism as government owning production or the means of production. Some in media also use this definition. This has long been used as a blanket denial of socialism. One can say that definition is the hurdle and they are not advocating that. Thus, they blame you for misstating their position. It becomes a semantics argument. I reject that — and the approach.

That is why I believe Dem0ocrats are some of the most disingenuous or dishonest people there are. And why it is often pointless talking with them. They’ll throw these simple or deceptive meanings out there and expect you to comply with it. What is the point?

It is better to say government controls the means of production. Even that is a little flawed in today’s definitions of Socialism. They’ve been working at creating vagueness for years.

So here is the definition of Socialism and I encourage people to see this page for more information. Webster’s claims communism is one of their most looked up words.

Socialism

1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

Socialism vs. Social Democracy: Usage Guide

In the many years since socialism entered English around 1830, it has acquired several different meanings. It refers to a system of social organization in which private property and the distribution of income are subject to social control, but the conception of that control has varied, and the term has been interpreted in widely diverging ways, ranging from statist to libertarian, from Marxist to liberal. In the modern era, “pure” socialism has been seen only rarely and usually briefly in a few Communist regimes. Far more common are systems of social democracy, now often referred to as democratic socialism, in which extensive state regulation, with limited state ownership, has been employed by democratically elected governments (as in Sweden and Denmark) in the belief that it produces a fair distribution of income without impairing economic growth.

Then we come to the basic Hitler description of Socialism. Asked prior to WWII about abolishing private property, he wanted people to keep their private property just as long as they understand that they are agents of the state. In this way, government does not need to own production or private property, merely control it. While you may own it, you and the property are virtually controlled by the state. All they need is control.

That same philosophical distinction can apply to production. All the state needs is control, which can be achieved by regulations or other arms of the state. So that is the dirty thing Leftisits don’t want to talk about or you to know, as long as you accept their definitions.

The Dem Vote Is In

Democrats’ vote is in, at least from a CNN focus group. And guess what the results are? Indeed, AOC-Snake Charmer is Democrats’ candidate of the future. Cue the celebration.

I don’t know if this is really CNN News or a Mardi Gras hangover?

Washington (CNN)A group of Democratic voters praised Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during a discussion of the New York Democrat, citing her boldness and regarding her as the future of their party.

“She is the candidate of the future. She has got this down pat. And she has also nailed it as a woman in a male-dominated field,” said Christian Tamte, one of six Democrats who spoke on a range of issues with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day” this week. [see link and video]

Tells you almost all you need to know about the future of Democrats or the DNC. I rest my case — or theirs. … Nailed, that’s kind of the way I saw it too. Yep, “badass” AOC.

All right then. Any questions?

Climate Of Religion

What we have seen is the overt politicization, weaponization and religiosity of the climate, or climate change, and the propagandizing of it. It should be no surprise that they politicized it to the max. That’s why so many people are outraged. But that was only the first step. Then they weaponize the climate, against the people of course.

Then they use the climate as the apocalyptic fear-mongering vehicle

When even the former head of Green Peace has to go on Hannity and call out the apocalypse hysteria of the Left, we are in a strange place.

He actually said that if we do the fossil full elimination they are calling for, it would decimate civilization. Or maybe that is what they want? He also said that our coal fired consumption is about 90% cleaner than it was decades ago.

But he said that today we still rely on fossil fuels for 80% of our electricity. Apparently they didn’t realize that when they tell us they want to switch to electric cars. Imagine the reaction when they all plug them in.

But they are telling us something with these Big Green Plans. They show us it is a religious movement now, full stop. The former Green Peace guy said what they are doing in incorporating kids into their message is equal to child abuse. Well, it should be criminal. The same person also said that the direction they are taking it, including using children (and emotions), is just to push their radical socialism or social justice platform.

I guess they don’t realize that we see exactly what they are doing. They turned it into a political issue, weaponized it, then made it a religious one. And they now feel comfortable turning that weapon on anyone they need to propel their political agenda.

Wouldn’t you think using and scaring kids would be a bit over the top? Not for them. In fact, it is right up their alley. The same way they have been using kids in their socialized healthcare schemes. Just roll out the children. What’s next, having children lobby and protest for late term abortion rights? Don’t be surprised.

As I said some time ago: is there anything too radical and extreme even for Democrats? Not anymore. Remember Claire McKaskill let the dirty secret out of the bag in the campaign, before she lost? She said those are the crazy Democrats and she was not one of them. But now that the election is over and AOC has taken over the party, with an assist from Bernie Sanders, it looks like they are telling us loud and clear that really all Dems are crazy Democrats. That’s the way it works.

We used to hear them say on the campaign that they would not be a lockstep vote, and they were independent minded, and that they would represent the people. Remember Trump called them out at rallies and said if they get in, they will only be Pelosi puppets and vote in lockstep. Rubber stamps. Again, Trump was completely right. But it only took a few short weeks for that to happen and prove it.

Bottom line is these people are not at all about preventing a catastrophe, they are all about creating one. And the faster they get there, the better. Have kids believe that the world is going to incinerate. We used to hide under desks in schools, remember. Now just tell them it is over. So we might as well blow through a hundred trillion dollars trying because it’s a lost cause unless. Unless they can save planet earth from destruction. Well, I wonder what kept planet earth from destruction years ago before they came along? They sort of sound like a revised version of Heaven’s Gate people over the Hale-Bopp Comet.

It does show us something. That the climate change and socialists, besides getting in bed with each other, are reading from the same script. It is all about belief. It is only based on that. Throw in a few anecdotes and current events to make your case, then round up the kids and give them their lines. Send them out to the public and watch people get sucked in. Or so goes the plan. However, what it really is based on is belief.(echoes of Obama) Have enough people to believe it and you can even summon a Hale-Bopp comet to come and rescue them. And they are betting all their marbles, and our money, on it.

Seduction of Sedition

What have we learned? That politics over country is status quo, and party politics is all there is for the Left. It has been this way for some time.

When people have no priority to their country, party is everything. The sedition movement consumes everything. Where was resistance when we really needed it?

I think we learned this thing engulfing the left, this sedition, is very seductive. It draws people into its vortex and keeps churning them into anti-American parasites.

The latest example was Michael Cohen. It’s hard to believe he was an attorney and Trump’s attorney. Of course they must use sedition to atack and destroy the grassroots trying to save and preserve the country. They claim to be trying to save democracy while destroying it. Party before country or anything else. Now it is party loyalty to take down a sitting president, everything else be damned. Nothing but politics matters.

And that politics is a radical leftist ideology, fomenting a coup and revolution in one.

Another seductive force of the Left is socialism. It operates the same way as sedition, consuming people like a wild fire. But many of us see it as communism on the rise. Their objective is to imitate the ’68 French model commonly known as a rise from below (or rise from under), sought for years. The left combined it with sedition to drive the model.

The design of which is to create an appearance of common folks rising up, in a revolution style, to demand and push the socialism they desire. A grassroots appearance is their goal and means. (Anarcho-commies, Marxists, socialists, Leftists) Bernie gave them the vehicle. Now they have this movement with its perceived momentum. That is nirvana to Leftists.

It is a revolution and coup by other means. Bringing us right up to Bernie’s call for economic and political transformation — sans the term revolution.

What we have generally with the progressive Left is what we have in Bernie Sanders: one whose loyalty is only to political ideology. A dangerous condition.

Bernie Explosion

As expected, Bernie announces that he is once again running for president. Of course he is, did anyone doubt it? He could not “resist.”

Skip his other statements, the one I care about is when he said he wants to radically transform America “economically and politically.” No kidding?

While we may have figured that, he is now boldly telling us in case we weren’t sure or living under a rock. And he expects that to be a selling point to rally the base.

This is not a good thing. I am way past the laughing and mockery stage. It is serious.

I will cut to the chase of my conclusion to save anyone the agony. I am not being glib or pessimistic here. The downfall of the US will be entirely the fault of the Left — or whatever name you want to call them. You know what that means? They can cause it by themselves.

Why that matters? Because I mean they can single-handedly destroy America even regardless of what we do, not withstanding extreme measures that might come about.

Sorry, that means something to me. I don’t know about anyone else. That would make us merely passengers on a train. That may not be fair or right but this is the way I see it. I like to think I gave it some thought to reach that conclusion.

Here is a fair question to ponder: will there ever be a point when the Left is too extreme or radical even for Democrats? I don’t like the answer. There are a couple different ways you can ask that question with the same inevitable answer. No.

Imagine JFK reading this news in the newspaper.

Music And Politics Sitting In A Tree

But let me start off with a made to order joke. Bless their little young hearts.

Sometimes I get a kick out of young people today, their naiveté still intrigues me. Even though they often seem ignorant of basic history. That is not all their fault.

So one day I was in a fast food place. The employees were having this discussion about the upcoming 50th anniversary of Woodstock. I couldn’t help listening because I was not doing anything except standing there waiting for my order.

All three of the guys were fairly young, and the only women was about middle-aged. She appeared to be schooling them on Woodstock, odd as that seemed to me at the time.

Then the one young guy ask her impatiently “well, was Hip Hop going on then, too, were they doing that?” I couldn’t resist cutting in to say, “they hadn’t even put those two words together yet” and I chuckled. They all looked at me with their upper wheels turning.

I looked at the guy who asked and said “ Man, they barely knew what rock and roll was back then. They were still breaking it in.” But then I saw his big eyes and knew that went right over his knowledge base and sailed into the deep. I smiled and walked away.

Dummy me, I thought maybe a joke would illustrate the point and further their discussion. But instead it ended it and left me wondering if it was my delivery that failed? And if it was some generational thing I crossed? At least I thought it was funny, they will probably never know if it was true, funny… or both?

Joined At The Hip

Say what you will about the original Woodstock which stole headlines some 5 decades ago this year. Those discussions are still going on, as I can testify. Organizers are planning a 50th anniversary to the Woodstock concert this year. But déjà vu all over again.

The original site in Bethel, NY has plans for an anniversary to memorialize the Max Yasgur Farm concert in ’69 and has already booked one top headliner, Carlos Santana.

But Michael Lang, one of the original promoters, has planned what he claims is the only original sanctioned anniversary celebration, which he announced will be in Watkins Glen, NY. In that one, political activism and sustainability will be a central theme for the event. And no doubt for the “woke” as well.

Not only is he drafting top talent, but also encouraging their political activism for the event too. So is this where Farm Aide and Woodstock exchange vows and officially tie the knot, joined in a river of political activism? No matter what the location, it will be billed as Utopia. Who knows if the National Anthem will even be allowed in this one? (old reference to Jimmie Hendrix) Or if maybe the Black Bloc and Antifa will do security for the event?

Take it from Lang himself: (CBS News January 11, 2019)

The festival will also evoke its predecessor through activism, with sustainability efforts and screenings, panels and art installations by non-profit organizations. “The Woodstock 50th Anniversary will be about sharing an experience with great artists and encouraging people to get educated and involved in the social issues impacting everyone on the planet,” said Lang.

“”We want this to be more than just coming to a concert,” Lang told The New York Times. “And hopefully a lot of the bands will become part of this effort to get people to stand up and make themselves heard, to get out [and] vote. And if they don’t have a candidate that represents their feelings, to find one — or to run themselves.”

From coming to sexual awareness to coming to political wokeness. Is that where mud baths come in? Is it where the white rabbit has a coup over the enchanted forest?

Okay, so music, history, or anniversary may not be the real motivation here. Political priorities, you know. No word whether any of the up and comers in presidential candidates are booking the event. They could have hours of speeches to a captive audience if they go all out. How nostalgic would that be? I don’t recall that was the message of Woodstock but that was then and this is now. What better place to grease the skids for socialism?

And now, being the radicalized leftist culture it is, supposedly on the rise, I can see it “and now a word from our movement icon, Bernie Sanders.” To which the crowd roars to their feet and gives him a fifteen minute standing ovation.

That could only be followed by another speech from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bringing home the Socialism message. And Michael Moore applauding waiting in the wings.

If you were one of the headliner bands, how on earth could you follow that bad acid trip? It also has me wondering what would be the definition of “success” for such a grand event? I guess you measure it in political success and, of course, by fundraising totals.

So Woodstock….you are finally 50, now how about growing the f*** up?

Of Loons And Train Wrecks

Is a train wreck still a train wreck if it doesn’t realize it’s a train wreck? (rhetorical)

I say that because some people and media seem to afford AOC a kind of pass simply because she doesn’t realize how dumb she sounds or stupid her ideas are — much less the consequences. I think that is a fatal mistake.

The answer of course is it is still a train wreck and will continue to be a train wreck, no matter how you perceive it or choose to think of it. The big ‘Green Dream’ is alive, too.

Something is not merely so ridiculous that it did not happen — only because it is ridiculous. Of course reality can be stupid at times and it can be a train wreck, even both at the same time. There are no mitigating factors to the physical damage done. It is what it is.

Cause on the other hand can be a deliberative debate over many contributing factors to it. But that does not change the final result, after.

I know we have a lack of common sense on the Left. But it is what it is. What consequences there are to that lack are already evident in a lot of places but they do not change due to the cause. Now maybe you could change the outcome of future events if you change the former. But you cannot change what is done.

This is the kind of light under which I think we have to look at AOC. We can laugh at her or react any way we want to but it won’t change what she is. It may be entertainment of sorts. Though I cannot dismiss her plans or what they will do out of hand, just because of the source. I’m done disbelieving what is now possible.

We had a similar thing with Obama. So many people dismissed what he could or would do. It turned out they were wrong. Now, faced with all that damage, the results do not change just because they underestimated him. Yes, I’d like accountability but that will not fix it.

Tolerance needs to be accountable, too.

We cannot underestimate the power of stupidity either. Dismiss it at your own peril.

We cannot suspend all the real consequences, or even analysis of these ideas, only because it is AOC. That is not how any of this works. Maybe she underestimates the will of the people but it does not change what her plans could do to America.

In this scenario, we are still a deciding factor over whether it can or will happen. But don’t underestimate our own stupidity either. (doesn’t matter why) We cannot stop it after.

Excuses or Alibis

In the end, if some of what she is pushing does happen, all we will be able to do is make excuses or point fingers of blame to why. But alibis will mean nothing. That is what makes all this serious now, while we still are a factor in the outcome. Blame is not going to matter. It is not serious because it is AOC, regardless what she thinks.

But what makes it serious is not because it is AOC or because the ideas don’t work, or that they are both stupid. Our big risk is not taking it seriously for what it all can do.
