Yesterday I heard a noozie say that “only a tiny minority” of Americans want our country’s borders secured against illegal immigration. This was obviously an untrue statement–riotously, flagrantly, boisterously untrue–but he said it anyway, right into the microphone for everyone to hear: thus demonstrating that what you hear as “news” these days has a good chance of being fraudulent.
And I heard a discussion of how fast can we legalize marijuana, and sports betting, and eventually prostitution: as the state leads foolish people into vice and helps them ruin themselves.
I used to think liberals were well-intentioned people who were simply mistaken in their politics. I don’t think that anymore. Not since they started piling San Francisco’s sidewalks with heaps of human feces.
Says I to myself, “Nobody is that stupid! Not even college students. No one can look at what happens to those cities and those countries ruled by ‘progressives’ and call it ‘progress.’ Nobody!”
A few miles down the road from here, we have the city of Perth Amboy. It used to be a sane, prosperous, mostly blue-collar city. My mother sometimes liked to shop Perth Amboy’s stores. We’d go by bus.
But no more. Democrats took over, drove out the prosperity, and the city’s just a mess.
Should they have been astounded, amazed, that the same policies they’ve pursued in all their captive cities have the same result–like, everywhere? Detroit, Camden, San Francisco, Gary, St. Louis–wherever they take hold, the result is the same. And as in cities, so in countries. Venezuela was a reasonably prosperous country, not so long ago. Their leftids took it over and, lo and behold, who woulda thought it, they turned it into a wreck.
It happens every time.
Again, no one can possibly be so stupid as to believe, sincerely, that socialism/liberalism/whatevuh will really work if you just give it a chance, this time it’ll work!
They’ve got to be doing it on purpose.
Why? I don’t know. I don’t think anybody knows. It looks satanic. I don’t know where this tree draws its nourishment, but it sure has ugly, foul-smelling fruit, poisonous to eat. Probably not even safe to touch it.
