Disgruntled senior citizens fume

The country electing, and then re-electing a half-black president didn’t improve race relations, Bernie Sanders says, but taxing millionaires will. Sixty years of Democrat policies intended to, it was claimed, help the poor, has produced an illiteracy rate of 85% among black teenagers, an illegitimacy rate of 73% among those same kids, and a kill ratio, black-on-black, that rivals Mexico’s drug wars. Neither Hillary nor the other old codger on the podium last night even questioned the failure of the policies that produced these results; instead they called for more of them, and all magically funded by millionaires.

I keep worrying that we get the government we deserve.

    If you crunch the numbers 99% of blacks are on welfare under Obama. 99%!

  2. Civil servants , public subserviants!

    Obama calls them US govt workers “them the best in the world”. There is no guarantee that big govt will solve our problems … the VA … Katrina … the PO … govt cant deliver … if they do it is slow and at a high cost … if they do it thru private firms, it is expensive … and in the case of military … often none of the work the govt paid for gets done … so govt aint the answer … they never want to talk about that … just utopia!

    Dude –

    I really believe this email, private server scandal is going to take her down. What she did was just so egregious, so dangerous, AND SO ILLEGAL, even the unlawful Obama Administration can’t ignore it. SHE MUST BE INDICTED!!

      Walt – in a rational world, no one would bet against you.

      But – are we IN a rational world? Too often, we gotta wonder – eh?

  4. Living in a closed loop contributes mightily to not seeing the world for what it is.

    Dude –

    And in a nutshell, here is Bernie’s plan to fix the economy, besides raising taxes on “the rich” to 90%:

    It’s as if our nation is in kindergarten. The teacher promises us fairy dust and ponies – and – everyone believes she is gonna deliver.

  7. The key word, as you say, is magical. Only magical thinkers can prefer socialism to free enterprise capitalism.

    Hillary’s campaign has all the enthusiasm of the Bataan death march.

    Does it seem that the Republican campaign is slowly turning to rationality?
    Voters are eliminating some non-viable candidates. I think the Republicans will soon tire of Mussolini……..er…….Trump. The adults are taking over from the reality-TV-star wing of the party.

      You keep dreaming Balzac. Your guys are the ones that got us into this mess. The system is broken. Nothing will change if one of your stooges gets elected. Not one of your boys has any foreign policy experience. It is a very lightweight group and we are living in a very dangerous world. Sure Trump is a vulgar man but our nation is a vulgar nation that is no better than the banana republics we proclaim we are better than. In fact, we may be worse. The Kardashians are on the cover of Architectural Digest. Culturally, If that does not say GAME OVER then I do not know what does. A Nation that debases its currency and allows it’s culture to be hijacked by bankers, thugs and miscreants deserves what we are about to get handed to us. What you really should be looking for is a civil war President because no matter who wins the other side is going to be very very unhappy. We are way beyond working together. Hope, change and a lack of any real world experience at the very top (the last two Presidents) has taken us to the edge of the cliff. This story does not have a happy ending.

    Good read. Heather Mac Donald has done yeoman work on crime issues particularly as it relates to black on black crime and “mass incarceration”

    • My rant

      Enjoyed the read, but found the comments depressing. One of the readers dismissed the article because the research (facts) contained therein came from an institute sponsored by the Koch brothers.

        Classic kill the messenger approach. For the non-believers, they should pack a bag and head to Chicago and make a weekend of it.

    I keep worrying that we get the government we deserve.

    Indeed. H.L. Mencken defined Democracy (in part) in The Jazz Webster section of his A Book of Burlesques (New York 1920) as:
    … the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

    Mencken was an elitist in a day of at least some competent elites, but he was thoroughly contemptuous of politicians of all stripes, seeing most of them as deluded at best and poltroons most often. In our current circumstances, one suspects he would be thoroughly amused by The Donald.

  10. The Dem party turned Detroit from being the weathiest US city, to being the poorest. Rinse, cycle repeat.

    The Dem party never apologizes, they just blame everyone else. WFB Jr. called it “Kennedyism” – the act of accusing someone else of something the accuser is guilty of doing themselves.

    Dude –
    Well at least it looks like Cruz has a sense of humor. His new add is really funny, and spot on point:

  12. And this: “In truth, Trump and Sanders are soaring not just by defying the establishment, but by defying logic and history. Sanders’ magic potion is socialism; Trump’s is Trump.”
