Diamond And Silk And An Unusual Sight These Days On The Streets Of San Francisco

A Man of the People?

This guy has no clue what working people need, but one thing we don’t need is the type of taxation that would be necessary to fund even a small amount of the stuff he is promising. They always dance around this question by repeating some vague concept of middle-class costs going down. How does that work? He would have working people take on the debt, insurance costs, living expenses, and health care costs of people too lazy, stupid, or incompetent to do it themselves. Producers taking on the obligations of non-producers are somehow supposed to cost us less than just taking care of our own personal financial responsibility. The lunacy of this should be evident to anyone with a pair of working brain cells. 

This Is What My Catholic Democratic Apologists Do Not Understand

This is what the Democratic Party is about. Stop turning a blind eye to it and let the politicians know that if they want your vote this has got to stop!

And So It Begins

One caucus and one primary in and the buzzards are already circling ready to pick whatever meat is left off the bones of the Biden campaign.


Biden is not even mentioned in this graphic but Andrew Yang, who is not even in the race any longer, is.

No Wonder He Left Town

As I write this, Joe Biden is in fifth place in New Hampshire. That is not good news for the Biden campaign nor the Democratic Party. No one expected the former Vice President to win Bernie Sander’s home state but a fifth-place finish? He is already having trouble raising cash. After this performance, Sleepy Joe might have difficulty raising dust. The media has already been writing Biden’s political epitaph, and they are just waiting for his doomed campaign to give up the ghost. 

Mayor Pete and Amy Klobuchar are the flavors of the week coming out of New Hampshire. Of the two, Amy is by far the more palatable, but her staying power will depend on whether she can distinguish herself going forward as well as she did in the debate. Senator Klobuchar tentatively raised her hand to be the lone candidate to say that she did indeed have a problem with a Socialist heading the Democratic ticket. That gesture represented what many in her party are thinking but are too afraid of the far-left base to say. Her surge came right after the debate and that one small action was a big part of that, in my opinion. 

The real winner last night, however, was not even on the ballot. He was not on the debate stage last week. Michael Bloomberg could not have had a better night. With no clear front-runner now the Democrats are looking at the very real possibility of a brokered convention. With moderates feeling disenfranchised and the far left feeling cheated once again by the DNC’s most significant problem might not be Donald Trump, but rather their voter turnout.

I Hate When He Gets Our Hopes Up Like That

I saw the headline in the NY Post, “DeBlasio says he wants to save NYC.” Of course, anyone who lives here can tell you that the only thing this doofus can do to save the city is to resign. naturally, the connection I made in my mind was, “He is going to quit!” 

But no, nothing so glorious was about to take place. But we have one thing here that is sorely needed in Washington, DC: Term Limits. We will be rid of this Orwellian Big Brother with his thousands of traffic cams and ever-increasing installation of dangerous poorly thought out bike lanes and traffic clogging bus lanes. 

Of course, if you are not registered Democrat in this city, you have no say in who the next mayor will be. Whoever the Democrats nominate will be the next chief executive of NYC, so we can look forward to yet another buffoon who will continue to preside over the decline of a once-great American City.

Just What Did She Tear Up?

When The Speaker of the House stood up and began ripping up the President’s State of the Union Address, it was more than just an act of colossal ignorance and immensely bad behavior. She ripped up an official document that is supposed to be entered into the Congressional Record. In other words, the speech that the President handed her was not hers to do with as she saw fit. It was the property of the people of the United States. For that reason alone, she should be censured by her colleagues and removed from her position as Speaker. She humiliated herself and her Party.

Diamond and Silk posted on twitter a poignant example of what else she tore up in her petulant disregard for common decency.
