Timely Questions

Question of the day. A while back, this single-digit reader base would remember I promised to regularly probe some of the deepest questions of our time.

Well, I have one.

A 3-letter news channel interviewed Democrat candidate Michael Bennet. They were talking about Medicare for All, and eliminating private insurance, which he doesn’t seem to support. Bennet claimed Democrats don’t like it that much. They said but Bernie and Elizabeth Warren are getting lots of support. “How do you explain that?” He said ‘well, maybe Democrats are supporting them for other reasons.’ But Bernie is so popular.

So he claims they are supporting them for different reasons. Then he adds that Bernie is one of the most popular politicians in the country, and Elizabeth Warren has a star-celeb status among Dems, too. Naturally they are going to get loads of support, he says. He also asserted that “Medicare for All” schemes were not really plans but an entire ideology.

Now then, let’s reverse engineer that idea. I am old enough to remember when Bernie was a pariah of the Democrat Party. They distanced themselves from him like the plague, at least publicly. He was persona non grata as a member, let alone a credible presidential candidate. He wanted to annex part of New England into Canada for Pete’s sake. Even his incessant utterance of the word “socialism” was repulsive then to much of the Left.

They really did not want much to do with his craziness. Well, times have changed. One thing Democrats don’t count on is for people to have long memories. Bernie is now the most popular and notable Leftist among Democrats. He popularized the term Democratic Socialist and successfully applied it to most of the base. Times do change.

The real question is how did he go from that old Bernie Sanders the crazy, to the new Bernie the trendiest politician? Yet he really did not change his ideas or beliefs. But there is the Left worshiping at his feet. So if anything new is happening on the Left, it has to go through Bernie first. How did he take over the Democrat Party and their base?

It cannot be argued that he is a radical. Democrats in general are radicals. But Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism, until someone knocks him off that socialist pedestal. It is his movement. From pariah to proprietor. He’s the gatekeeper to new and cool ideas. I don’t claim to understand it nor can I explain it.

Yet, like the great pyramids or the Sphinx, there he is in full regalia. An anomaly of our times. What of Bennet? He is now the outlier. He was as lost to explain Bernie’s popularity as the Sphinx. The good news for other radical socialists is they don’t have to go through a transition, they can get elected as instant socialist heroes now just like the squad.

Only somehow those are questions the 3-letter news channel cares nothing about probing.

Democrat Dream Candidates

Identity politics has had a head-on collision with reality. It’s too early to know the full outcome yet. It seems the investigation is still underway. Results will take time.

Democrats have long played the identity politics game and 2016 was a perfect case. But a strange twist is happening they probably had not anticipated. And it might just affect the 2020 election and not in a positive way.

You know the rules and the way it works. Democrats only see identity when they pander to voters. Elections are the whole purpose, The group rules, individuals are just fuel.

So it has all worked in their political strategy the way they wanted it to. But the campaign is already heating up to decide which person. (at least I think they are all people) They have two old guys in the top slots for starters. That is Bernie an Biden leading the pack.

But both these guys are old and white, right? Well that doesn’t play well. There is no identity gimmick to that. The voices of dissent are already rising from their mob. They say it does not represent a preferred identity. They see room for one of the other identities.

S0 it got me thinking. Democrats also have that other identity game going. Actually, it represents more of a problem. They pandered to LGBTQs, gays or any of the others.

However, the trans community has also been playing identity politics. They developed a new thing I will call sexual choice. According to theory a person has the right to claim how he/she identifies, as a personal preference, which must be respected by everyone. Example: Bob decides he identifies as a woman and his new name is now Judy. It is all biology irrelevant so no matter what he claims is his/her accepted identity.

And how one identifies decides everything. No questions.

Now you have these two old white guys — not to forget Warren and Gillibrand. What could two old white guys need to do to spice up their identities? Maybe they could try the new identifies game. I mean it is all about preference, right?

Well, maybe Bernie could identify as a young male rapper? How about a young biracial male rapper? He does have a hand gesture going for him. Why not? What is preventing Joe from identifying as a Latino? Whatever they are comfortable with goes. (for as long as they are) And no one should be able to question their choice of identity, right? Joe might go with the female version to align it with restroom preference.

And that is the way this whole race could go now, using the left’s preference rules. Actually, under that standard they could even change identities again if they wanted. It is whatever works for them. Who could argue? Maybe the first gender-neutral candidate?

See how opportunistic this all can be? Why can we see a problem there but Democrat dumbos cannot, or will not admit to it anyway? That is where we are headed.

Looks like liberals have taken the 60’s sexual, counterculture revolution and kicked it up a few notches. Now everyone must play according to their preferences. It’s identity limbo.

Warren, have mouth will travel

Elizabeth Warren is smoking some wild and crazy stuff, and she apparently thinks everyone else can see her hallucinations too. The ‘madder than a hatter’ has just said she thinks her election proved people want bipartisanship in the Senate.

Sometimes there are people you cannot reach with rational reasoning. She’s exhibit A. How the voters of Mass elected this psychotic princess is beyond any rational excuse. But to hear her big mouth define and describe what Americans said or wanted in this election is absurd. This senator–elect is more egocentric than the current Occupier was in his US Senate race — I didn’t think that was possible. And just as bombastic.

What kind of toxic cocktail has Massachusetts cooked up for America now? She seems to be following the Obama model though.

TownHall:
Warren: Those Darn Senate Republicans Won’t Stop Filibustering, and I’m Going to Washington to Stop Them

“I learned something important in my race against Senator Brown: voters want political leaders who are willing to break the partisan gridlock. They want fewer closed-door roadblocks and more public votes on legislation that could improve their lives.”

Maybe someone can get her fitted with a straight jacket before she really hurts someone. (she’s already a ward of the State) Does she even know what Party she is in? Her version of spread the wealth does not include intelligence. Actually, what it proved is the voters of Mass are just as dilusional as she is.
