“President Trump is, of course, cooperating mightily with the effort to make him the villain of the piece — his low character, tough-guy strutting, and habitual Twitter buffoonery all go a long way toward that. The Democrats are lucky to have him as a foil. Otherwise, they might be made to really seriously answer some uncomfortable questions, such as: Who has been in charge in Minneapolis lo these many years? Philadelphia? Chicago? Detroit? Los Angeles? Cleveland? Dallas? To the extent that governance matters, how is it that the situations in these communities is to be understood as anything other than the result of practically exclusive Democratic political power? And if Democratic political power is insufficient to turn things around in these places, then why is the answer to the current crisis more Democratic political power?“

Socialism is the neutron bomb of political ideologies: it slaughters people, while leaving buildings and structures intact.

Factories don’t only produce pollution, and they don’t only produce tractors and life-saving medicines; they produce both, which makes real life more complicated than the cheap moralism that impresses intellectually stunted progressives.

In Venezuela, one of the natural resource-richest countries… in the world, the people have no food or toilet paper. So, to make things better for them, their government guns them down in the streets. Why? Well, the people are quite naturally wondering why, with all the natural resources their country has… they have no toilet paper or food. When they express those concerns in public the government solves their petty complaints by adding a few grams of lead to their diet. Continue reading The Catastrophic Failure that is Socialism
Okay… let’s spell it out. When these leftists figured that BECAUSE they were of the Left, they could expose themselves, rub themselves, grope, grab, kiss, rub, massage, fondle, caress, molest, hug, squeeze anyone, and anyTHING on anyone, they wanted… and get clean away with it… they were right. It was, and still is, Leftist Privilege! Continue reading A Hopeful Sign — the American Left is ALREADY Devouring Its Own — Or: LEFTIST PRIVILEGE
To elaborate just a bit: If the Left were unable to use insults, name-calling or mind-reading, they’d have nothing to say… and they’d lose every debate in which they have to participate honestly. I’d add: if the Left were also unable to filibuster, talk over, interrupt their debate opponents, they’d cease to exist as anything but a fringe current of thought.

For Democrats, there are five words that cause them cold, heart-stopping terror: “A woman has come forward.” Continue reading Just Sayin’ (Part II)
