You hear that giant sucking sound? The one that sounds like the world’s largest toilet is being flushed… Well that would be the Democrats who hold a super majority in the California state legislative branches taking the first step down the road towards single payer healthcare for the state and the financial ruin of socialism. It seems I cannot go much more than a week without the DPRK giving me a healthy dose of be glad you got out when you did news.
It seems that the Left is jumping into crazy with both feet now the Trump tax cuts have been announced. The plan is still being tweaked so details are a bit scant still, but of course that did not stop the Left from turning up the outrage to eleven. There have been several tweets that are pretty mind numbingly stupid so far so I decided I would look at some of the dumber ones that were included in an article written by The Daily Caller and bring some sanity back to the world.
Walls work… Just ask Matt Damon or any Hollywood elite who use them to protect their homes. Hell ask Obama who after purchasing his DC home… first thing put up a wall. Now I am not talking about a wall from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico, but a wall where it makes sense and technology and increased border patrol presence where building a wall is impractical. In essence the American people are asking that we curb the tide of illegal immigration that run unchecked during the Obama years, make it more difficult for drug and human smugglers to make a living and simply enforce the laws.
What do you do as the Democratic Party when an ABC News / Washington Post poll finds that 67% of Americans believe you are out of touch with the people’s concerns? Why you go further to the left in your rhetoric and policies. It seems that everyone in charge of the Democratic Party believes that the way to win back the center of the American voter is to double down on the same leftist mentality that led Democrats to losing hundreds of seats across local, state and federal offices and the White House as well.
“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.
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.
Of course after failing to embarrass or trip him up during the confirmation hearings they are now erroneously declaring that he is not in the mainstream of judicial thought and declaring without citing specific examples his performance and written answers. Of course if you viewed any of the confirmation hearings then you are aware that the Democrats failed to score any soundbites of substance from which they could launch relevant attacks that would resonate with anyone other than the very extreme Left of the party.
