Notable Quote – Bernie hates capitalism

by Skip February 10, 2016

From Weekend Pundit: Speaking of Bernie Sanders, we should all remember that he’s never held a private sector job. All of his paychecks have come from government, be it the city of Burlington, Vermont or from Uncle Sam as a member of Congress, either in the House or the Senate. He’s never had to worry […]

“When You’re a Collectivist You Simply Wait For Someone Else Do To the Hard Work”

by Skip January 27, 2016

And for the Low Information Voters, that would be Progressives /Socialists that are the Collectivists: There’s always one in every crowd…and yes, that IS a BERNIE sign. Just one more indicator of more and more riding in the wagon and not pulling “their fair share”.    (H/T: Liberty Unyielding)

Me too! I think this music is more appropriate…

by Skip January 24, 2016

…for the guy that took his bride to Moscow for their honeymoon.  Berni just released his first national TV spot using Simon and Garfunkel’s “Looking for America”.  Powerline’s Steve Haywood had his own take on the musical background as Bernie is trying to normalize, lighten up, and paper over what Socialism really will do to […]

Data Point – Bernie Sanders will hoover up your money

by Skip January 19, 2016

Bernie Sanders, like all Socialists / Statists, believes your money is really the State’s money.  After all, if you believe in Warrenism, “you didn’t build that” and apparently, Bernie believes that the State is only lending you your money, and now he wants it back.  After all, like all Statists, he believes his spending your […]

Martin Luther King on Marxism / Communism / Socialism / Progressivism

by Skip January 19, 2016

For in the end, they are pretty much aligned to the same end – The Bigger the Citizen, the smaller the citizen (emphasis mine): During the Christmas holidays of 1949 I decided to spend my spare time reading Karl Marx to try to understand the appeal of communism for many people. For the first time […]

Meet The Press – Stephanie Cutter sees no difference between Socialists and Liberal Democrats

by Skip January 17, 2016

On Meet The Press today, Steve Schmidt (of the failed McCain campaign) brought out that 43% of Iowa Democrats self identify as Socialists and not as capitalists.  I didn’t know that but it is an eye-popping statistic lending credence that the Democrat Party has gone far more Left than the Republicans have gone  Right.  After […]

Notable Quote – Progressivism where the future is, well, only the past

by Skip January 14, 2016

For those of us who love comedy, one of the most delightful ironies of progressivism is how regressive it is, how mired in the past. While conservatives gather to discuss fresh reformist ideas on how to fight poverty and keep a free society afloat, all progressives ever do is reach into their Magic Box of Tomorrow and draw out the same sclerotic socialism […]

In footsteps of otherDems, Hillary can’t answer “Difference between Dems & Socialists?”

by Skip January 7, 2016

Of course Hillary can’t because she CAN’T; it would finally admitting that Democrats hate our entire system of government – Socialists HATE our stated form of government, a Constitutional Republic with democratically elected Representatives.  Instead, they feel put upon that THEY just can’t rule by fiat (re: Obama) or see us ruled by like-minded technocratic […]

But Socialists / Communists / Statists WANT you to not know history!

by Skip December 27, 2015

Prof. Thomas Sowell on Socialist centrally planned economies (run by the elite government few in a command-and-control) (emphasis mine): The French Revolution was their chance to show what they could do when they got the power they sought. In contrast to what they promised — “liberty, equality, fraternity” — what they actually produced were food […]

Socialism: the epitome of income inequality – a Venezuelan observation

by Skip December 11, 2015

I just don’t understand the hoo-ha over Bernie Sanders who is about as Communist / Socialist that has run for US President since Eugene Debs (even as Hillary is trying hard to out-Left him).  Socialism has NEVER worked, but I guess that with the “divide everyone” war on American citizen by Obama and the nonstop […]

Last Republican Debate: succinct enumeration of “Republicanism”

by Skip November 12, 2015

Yes, the split between the “We can govern Big Government better than the Democrats” Republicans versus those that actually believe in “Smaller Government” and are willing to work for it.  Jeffrey Lord at Conservative Review has some bon mots on who is in which camp and why the former is as deadly as the Democrats […]

How many times can an interviewee have that “deer in headlights” look?

by Skip November 12, 2015

Pitiful, simply pitiful.  Here we have a college co-ed, a national spokesdweeb for the Million Student Day to Demand Silly Stuff Because They Don’t Want To Pay For It (aka “Student Million March”), made the fatal mistake of coming onto a show where the host understands how to ask very simple questions.  Students want: Free […]

They certainly do not know what it really is

by Skip November 11, 2015

It’s quite amusing, really – there is a phrase out there that holds a lot of truth: The Left is always trying to shut up Conservatives; Conservatives just want the Left to keep on talking. Why do you think this is true, especially the latter phrase?  Just watch: Only ONE of those college kids was […]

This snippet on Jim Webb’s departure from the Democrat Party nomination for President race: …This presidential campaign for Jim Webb has been all about trying to restore what he views as the traditional Democratic Party, so that’s rural voters in the South, in Appalachia, especially white voters, who have really abandoned the Democratic Party in […]

What Bernie Sanders Wants for America

by Steve MacDonald October 20, 2015
Thumbnail image for What Bernie Sanders Wants for America

Sanders is possessed of the ancient 20th century Nordic “tradition” of the socialist paradise. He loves him some “modern” Swedish economics, see also Socialism the Third Way. He may also think those Lads from Liverpool are still on tour and he’s just waiting for them to come ’round so he can see the show. Sorry […]

Socialism is the greediest of all political systems

by Skip October 15, 2015

After all, if you want to take stuff from others that isn’t yours, isn’t that entirely greedy of you?  Selfish?  Full of envy? Is that such a great way to go through life instead of being happy with what you earn (and not what politics gets you by stealing it)? (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

Democrat Debate last nite – proved Mitt right

by Skip October 14, 2015

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. Yup, I think they can pretty much take that off the bucket list – mission accomplished in toto for one (they’re still working on the Stupid Party, however).  Free…you name it; paid leave, more SS benefits, tuition paid, more Obamacare – it […]

“Tax me! Tax the **** out of me!”

by Skip September 30, 2015

Dave Matthews would be happy with being called a socialist and would be most happy if Bernie Sanders was elected President and folks like him would be forced to pay more in taxes. “Someone could call me a liberal, and I’d say, ‘Thank you.’ Someone could call me a socialist, and I’d say, “I wish […]

Abortion and the Socialist

by Skip September 14, 2015

Bernie Sanders, Socialist Democrat, spoke at Liberty University today (the largest evangelical private university in the US).  I have to give him a bit of cred, given that he went to a place where Democrats or Socialists don’t ordinarily go.  I’m not going post up all of his talk but I will concerning this from […]

Welfare

False prophets…

by Susan Olsen September 2, 2015

“There are no rational means of predicting the ‘future of humanity’ over a long period or foretelling the nature of ‘social formations’ in ages to come. The idea that we can make such forecasts ‘scientifically,’ and that without doing so we cannot understand the past, is inherent in the Marxist theory of ‘social formations;’ it […]

Notable Quote – Thomas Sowell

by Susan Olsen August 30, 2015

“While capitalism has a visible cost — profit — that does not exist under socialism, socialism has an invisible cost — inefficiency — that gets weeded out by losses and bankruptcy under capitalism. The fact that most goods are more widely affordable in a capitalist economy implies that profit is less costly than inefficiency. Put […]
