It must be utterly exhausting to be a Liberal. I mean every day for the last nine months has been the majority of the Left waking up each and every day with the outrage dial cranked all the way to eleven. It would be fine except they are running out of things to be legitimately outraged about now and they are beginning to propose ways of redressing their grievances which only other insane people would find to be a suitable solution. Honestly Leftists, take a few days off from all the outrage it would do you and the world a whole lot of good because keeping up the anger cannot be good for you.
I believe that when they hear the President say “America First” they imagined that it meant an isolationist version of America only. They point to the President’s own previous condemnation of Obama’s intervention across the global to push the story that they were sold a bill of goods that are not behaving as advertised. I disagree because America first does not necessary mean American only.
One of the reasons I am an avid reader of The Huffington Post is that I get to learn great things like all the world’s problems can be solved with more progressivism… well and disenfranchising white males for a period of 20 – 30 years and taking our wealth to be redistributed. Shelley Garland in her blog titled “Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?” essentially postulates in her opinion that everything bad that has occurred over the last year can be laid squarely at the feet of the white male.
Many of the students are saying that the schools choice for commencement speaker is making them feel “unsafe.” Who is this monster of the “Alt-Right” that has these precious little snowflakes howling in terror? Genghis Khan? Charles Manson? Josephs Stalin? Adolph Hitler? No it is not any of these mass murdering sociopaths… it is Vice President Michael Pence. Wait what? Seriously?
“State Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, said the amended Senate Bill 30 will prohibit the state from contracting with any person or organization that provides any goods or services for the wall.” Of course we are used to seeing virtue signaling bills being passed by all branches of California government where they threaten to not do business with states or companies within those states when those states pass legislation with which they disagree, but I think this might be the first time in which they are threatening actions against individuals.
You ever watch a video online and have to double check that it is not fake. I was watching video from MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with anchor Lawrence O’Donnell and I began to wonder if maybe the first successful brain transplant had been performed between O’Donnell and Alex Jones. If you have read my blog for any length of time then you know I have issues when mundane events are explained with overly complex and dramatic conspiracy theories because while they can be entertaining they are just lazy thinking in the way that they hammer square facts into round story holes.
President Trump promised on the campaign trail that we would get sick of winning. Well I certainly have not bagged my limit yet and every little win is especially sweet as I watch the Left either ignore it completely and not report it in mainstream media or utterly meltdown. Either way the truth will ultimately get out because even the media cannot hide everyone’s 401K and pay raises from them. The job growth numbers were pretty weak, but it looks as if this was impacted more by weather and one month does not make a trend. President Trump will get a lot of leeway for his reelection if the economic numbers keep climbing and because liberal tears are sweet like wine.
First let me start by saying that I am of two minds on the Syrian strike. I have been watching the debate rage back and forth all day across every social media platform. If the decision is clear cut for you on what the appropriate action should have been congratulations. For me situations like this are always difficult because they are not black and white. On one hand you have serious atrocities being committed against women and children and on the other you have a quagmire in which America has been seemingly stuck for the last 20 years.
Since February I have seen several articles where it appeared that many Senators seemed on the fence for supporting border security and may be ready to use it as a bargaining chip to gain concessions from Democrats. Republicans this would be a mistake as this is one of three items that if you clearly stand against it, the people will not show up to support you in the future. The voters sent you to Washington to fight for the values we hold dear not to compromise on the safety and sovereignty of America.
Americans are many things, but ultimately we are pragmatists. When we step into a voting booth many times our decisions are driven by what is best for our 401K, college savings accounts and our wallets. In this sense Obama was a horrible president. The numbers are in and despite have carte blanch on zero percent interest rates, 9 trillion in added debt and a compliant media that thought he walked on water Obama failed to reach a mark that every president prior to him had achieve for at least one quarter during their presidency… 3% economic growth.
