Typical Uniformed Democrat

Andrew Yang seems like a smart human being… he’s worked the capitalist system to extremes building a business that he sold for several million dollars and has written a couple of books. He started a non-profit organization that paid him in excess of $200K as CEO, which he bailed on just as the revenue rollercoaster was on the down slide. He now has his hat in the ring to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for President. (I told you he seems smart. Being on the national political scene running for president will most likely net him another fortune.) However, being smart doesn’t necessarily translate into being intelligent. During last night’s debate Yang showed his ignorance by bringing up one of…

What a Joke!

What a Joke The first 2020 Democrat Presidential Debate happened last night and for two straight hours we got to listen to half of the candidates running for office spent the night whipping up the Trump haters with liberal talking point after liberal talking point. In reality I didn’t hear any of them talk about specifics about how they should or could accomplish such lofty and for the most part socialist goals. The moderators (all members of the left leaning media) did nothing but ask leading questions that lead to receiving broad general answers that are void of any substance. They never asked any of the tough questions that would have forced the candidates to face reality rather than tip…

Start of 2020 Presidential Election

Tonight is the unofficial/official start of the 2020 Presidential election cycle when a stage full of Democratic hopefuls participates in their first debate. There is so many Democrats who have declared running that the debate is being split into two consecutive nights and they have limited the overall number of participants to twenty… ten each night. In reality there are only three or four candidates that even have any chance of winning the primary and becoming the sacrificial lamb for the 2020 election cycle, so it’s going to be interesting to hear just how far some of the lesser known candidates plan to go with the socialist ideals of the current democrat platform. It’s going to be a free for…

Reparations… Biggest Scam of the Modern Era.

Reparations or handouts to the black population for events that occurred almost 200 years ago has got to be the greatest scam on society today. We’ve got students at Princeton who think because some of the early administrators and professors from the early 1800’s were slave owners that the school should set aside 15% of certain funds and only use them to benefit the black student population. We’ve got several of the 2020 Democrat hopefuls looking to become the next President of these United States who are advocating paying reparations to anyone claiming to be a descendant of a slave, which pretty much means you just have to be black in order to hold your hand out. Unfortunately it’s so…

If It Quacks Like A Duck

When is a socialist not a socialist; apparently when you’re a liberal democrat running for the Presidential nomination in 2020. All of them talk a lot about the government takeover of our healthcare, Medicaid for all (even those in the country illegally.) They want the government to provide a free education to everyone (again it doesn’t matter if you’re a citizen or not.) They want to guarantee everyone a living wage income… even if you’re unwilling to work. They talk like a socialist, they walk the walk of a socialist, but refuse to embrace the label of a socialist. The list of freebees being offered up by these socialists hiding behind the label of progressive seems to be endless as…

You Just Can’t Fix Stupid!

The story headline reads… “Amazon pays no income tax for second year.” The media is feeding us a line of shit and even those who should know better are repeating and promoting their misleading agenda. The Amazon from the story is a Limited Liability Company or LLC… which for federal tax purposes is a pass through entity that by design pays no federal taxes of their own. The pass through happens when the profits that the company makes flows to the ownership’s personal tax return where the income is taxed by the federal government. The question we should be asking is how much federal tax the owners paid! Unfortunately we’ll never see the lame street media tell you that because…

Easy When You’re Rich

Bill Gates recently made the comment that nobody needs to be as rich as he is… I’m sure that it’s real easy to criticize and make such comments when you don’t have a clue what being poor or in the middle class is like. He plans on giving the bulk of his fortune to his foundation, which fights poverty and diseases in third world countries all over the planet. Of course that means that the kids are only going to get an amount that falls under the inheritance tax limits… poor souls are going to have to figure out how to live with a measly 9 or 10 million dollars. Gates also believes that he isn’t paying enough in taxes,…

Will 2020 Be The Year We Embrace Socialism

The 2020 presidential race is shaping up to possibly be a pivotal year in our countries history… It may well be the year that the left seizes control of our government and every aspect of our lives with a strict socialist agenda. It seems that all of those who are throwing their hats into the ring to become the next Democrat nominee feel the path to victory is to promise a total nanny state to those too ignorant to understand that it will not work here just as it has failed everyplace else on the planet. We’re already seeing how embolden the extreme liberal arm of the Democrat party has become with the introduction of the New Green Deal legislation…

Pope Says the Wealthy Feast on What Belongs to Us All

Sunday was World Day of the Poor… The Pope hosted 6,000 poor people for mass and then invited 1,500 indigent people to join him for lunch. So I guess the Pope thinks he’s doing his part to redistribute the billions of wealth he sits on. Even the wealthy Vatican apparently needs a special day to do anything for those less fortunate. I wonder how they made the determination that everyone of the participants were indeed needy? Did they vent each and every one of them? Were they required to submit some kind of financial statement to prove they were poor?  Something tells me that they used the honor system when allowing people in by just claiming to be poor. Actually…
