Bernie and AOC keep saying “Democrat Socialism” is different than plain Socialism. It isn’t

With Socialism,  in that everything is owned by “all” and the majority ALWAYS overrules the minority (and the smallest minority is YOU), the Government chooses (whether you like it or not). You are only a cog in a collective. With Capitalism and our Representative / Constitutional Republic, that adheres …

DISQUS Doodlings Part 2: “If we want to make better decisions or do things in our society’s self-interest, we need to be tricked into doing them”

“If we want to make better decisions or do things in our society’s self-interest, we need to be tricked into doing them,” explained Steve Valk from the Citizens Climate Lobby.

Hillary: “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” (H/T:  Progressives and The Proper Role of Government – and your subservience to it).  That WOULD be your argument if you were intellectually and philosophically honest, Ms. Preston.

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry – If you thought getting my rifle out of my cold, dead hands was hard enough…

“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had a private notion of children; your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children…We Have to Break Through This Idea ‘That Kids Belong to Their Parents‘“ If …

Don’t pay your taxes – you can’t be part of Our Collective

If it was only that easy to get around these Freedom crushers!  Once in a while, I am directed to a site that is definitely NOT Right-of-Center and this time the tipster sent me to Miscellany: Blue, a rather progressive site.  The occasion was an interview done by Dave Ridley with Progressive NH State House …
