Fill in the blank and win a prize! “I send my children to college to be educated by idiots and wackos because __________.”
A 69-year-old sociology professor at the College of Southern Nevada recently went into a university bathroom, pulled a gun, and shot himself in the arm (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/trump-protest-professor-shoot-himself-college-university-southern-nevada-california-mark-bird-a8542771.html). He did this “to protest Trump.” Good heavens… he shot himself for Hillary? He’s crazier than I thought.
Uh, perfesser, what was supposed to happen after you shot yourself? The president resigns because he doesn’t what you to shoot yourself in the other arm? We keep holding the election over and over again until your side wins? How did you expect to influence current events, or change history, by doing this? I mean, really, what was the flaming point of shooting yourself in the arm? (Please don’t tell me he aimed at his head and missed!)
And for all the public money we pour into the colleges, we must be almost as crazy as he is.
Still in full tantrum mode
The Greek historian Polybius praised the Roman Republic for its system of checks and balances. As a Greek, he had personal experience of “democracy” self-destructing into hysteria and mob rule.
Today presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton, still unable to come to terms with her defeat by Donald Trump and the American people, continues to push for the abolition of one of our country’s firmest and most successful checks and balances–the electoral college (https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/09/17/hillary-clinton-abolish-electoral-college-because-donald-trump-is-destroying-america/).
Why? Because Donald Trump won, and he’s “a racist.” And he’s destroying an “American democracy” that does not exist and never did: our Constitution guarantees us a republican form of government, not a democracy. Our founders read Polybius.
Of course, it would require a constitutional amendment to replace the electoral college with a straight popular vote. You don’t “just do it.” But I don’t think Democrats know that.
Without the electoral college, every presidential election would be dominated by Far Left crazy states California and New York; and a regular injection of illegal alien votes would ensure a perpetual Democrat presidency. Can’t have any of those voter ID laws, etc. That would be racist.
The electoral college protects America from being hijacked by a handful of states with big populations. It has always protected us from that. “Democracy,” Polybius wrote, never fails to degenerate, first into mob rule, finally into dictatorship. Sort of like what happened in Venezuela.
If you love your country, don’t even think about voting for a Democrat.
Democrat Senators have been reduced to calling fictional characters to testify against Judge Brett Kavanagh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Already heard as witnesses against Kavanagh have been Captain Ahab, Betty and Veronica, and Tristram Shandy. But the star so far has been Constable Chumley of Scurveyshire, from Violet Crepuscular’s epic romance, Oy, Rodney.
Asked by Senator Corey “Spartacus” Booker (D-Parallel Universe) whether Judge Kavanagh had ever harassed or molested any country maids in Scurveyshire during the reign of Queen Victoria, Constable Chumley answered vigorously–well, at least as vigorously as any fictional character can manage.
“Ooh, yeye, thar’ wee no thrickin’ bawn a-tall!” The Constable nods for emphasis. “I delly, footh, ’twas mair yon Kavanagh thoo’ briggle!” He went on in this vein for 90 minutes, no one daring to interrupt him.
The next witness, Ms. Violet Crepuscular herself, testified, “My feelings are the same as Constable Chumley’s.”
TOMORROW: Democrat Senators to call on characters from books and stories that haven’t been written yet.
Here’s what it looks like when they “take over”
When they were handing out stupid pills, this guy was first in line.
“Democrat activist” Scott Dworkin, “a proud member of #TheResistance” (oh, please), has called for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to be cast out of office and for Hillary Clinton, the most corrupt woman in the world, to “take over” (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/07/democrat-activist-calls-for-hillary-clinton-to-take-over-presidency-in-wake-of-trump-putin-summit/).
Did he wake up thinking he lives in Bolivia in 1908? Uh, dude, this is the United States of America and we don’t do that “take over” thing here. As badly as he might want America to be a Third World country, it isn’t. We don’t go in for coups d’etat, short-lived military juntas, firing squads, and all the rest of that cool progressive stuff.
Well, at least his remarks show us how Democrats are thinking, if that’s the word for it, and what they’d like to do if they ever got a chance to do it.
America cannot be great again until the Democrat Party is put out of business. Permanently.
Browsing around assorted news stories this weekend, and reading the comments from assorted readers, I think I have to say that Democrats are now wedded to the Russian Collusion Myth: that is, Hillary Clinton is the rightful president–yeesh, the Once and Future President, if you will–but she was cheated out of it by Donald Trump’s “collusion” with the Russians. It has been added to their scriptures, along with some verses declaring that no illegal aliens voted for Hillary, not even in California or Chicago.
Go ahead, ask them what form the Great Collusion took. Like, what did the Russians actually do? Government investigators swear there was no tampering with the voting machines and not a single vote was changed, or in any way affected, by anything “the Russians,” whoever they were, did. What did “the Russians” do, to cheat Hillary out of the presidency? And why would they not want to deal with a corrupt politician–that would be Hillary–whose cooperation they already knew to be always on sale? A big enough donation to the Clinton Foundation, and you get the nuclear launch codes. If anything, Russian bad guys would have wanted Hillary to be president!
But the Democrats sit down by the waters of the Potomac and weep. It’s so unfair! It was Her Turn to be president! Her turn! She simply could not have lost without all that Russian cheating!
I’m old enough to notice that Democrats never got this upset about Russian tanks rolling into Hungary.
It remains to be seen whether their faith in Her Turn is strong enough to move them to nominate Hillary again. Once more into the breach, dear friends! This time it’ll work! This time we’ll keep the Russians out, and this time she will win!
I hope they try it. I really hope they do.
It’s the end o’ the world, I tell ‘ee! And wouldn’t you know it? Women will be hardest hit!
Hillary Clinton’s words of wisdom, a few days ago at Georgetown Looniversity: “Women… will bear the brunt of looking for food, looking for the firewood, looking for the place to migrate to when all of the grass is finally gone” (https://www.dailywire.com/news/26800/hillary-clinton-now-says-climate-change-sexist-emily-zanotti). While men sit around playing video games or something.
This woman’s crazy.
Really, I must object! It’s not fair to satirists that she should satirize herself. Our job is hard enough without leftids making fools of themselves before we can show them up as fools.
Meanwhile, Hillary shared her thoughts on the 2016 presidential election, attributing her defeat to “old fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women” on the voters’ part. “You sexist morons! You deplorables! How could you have been so freakin’ stupid?” Etc. Winning the hearts and minds of the electorate… by spitting venom at them.
Disgruntled Democrats and other leftids are trying to assemble thousands of their fellow idiots in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s election as president, to “scream helplessly at the sky.” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5016619/PIERS-MORGAN-Scream-snowflakes-Trump-win-again.html)
This, according to one of the scream-a-thon’s organizers, is because President Trump “has attacked everything about what it means to be an American.” You know, those good old American standbys–Mom, apple pie, coming here illegally and getting lots of free stuff, having your sex organs chopped off so you can say you’re something else, abortion, and all the rest of that Democrat paradise.
You’ve got to hand it to them, though. Brilliant idea! Scream their way into your heart. One look at them, and you’ll instantly realize what a hideous error you made in not voting for Hillary–and more than once, if you could swing it–and how awful it is that she isn’t our nation’s leader.
And no, I didn’t make it up. They’re quite serious.
Huff-puff, pant-pant… I’ve managed another Newswithviews column.
Now back to my book.
I don’t generally cover politics on Sundays, but who can pass up such a towering display of sheer block-headedness?
A handful of psychologists, psychiatrists, “and other mental health professionals”–maybe it was deemed better not to describe them in more detail–with professionally printed cloth banners marched down Broadway in New York City t’other day to demand that President Donald Trump be removed from office for being “narcissistic” (http://nypost.com/2017/10/14/shrinks-take-to-streets-to-demand-narcissistic-trumps-ouster/).
Hoo boy! Where were these wet noodles for eight years of President *Batteries Not Included? And eight years of Bill Clinton? If narcissism could be converted to energy, those two blow-hards by themselves could light the solar system.
Oh–and President Trump is also too crazy to be president, they say, because he just doesn’t seem to understand that in any controversy, he’s supposed to surrender to the Left as soon as possible. I mean, really–who ever heard of a Republican president trying to win? That alone ought to earn him a trip to the booby hatch.
I can hardly wait to vote for him again!
