I’m Running for President!

9

Move over, purple penguins! Now that some of the real lightweights have dropped out, it’s time for me to join the Democrat presidential nomination sweepstakes.

And here’s my first campaign promise, right up front. If I’m elected president, I guarantee that there will be no sharks swimming around in our department stores! No other candidate has made that promise because no other candidate can. With me in the White House, it will be perfectly safe to use the escalator in Barnes & Noble.

I also promise that the very least I would do, if you elect me president, would be… well, nothing. C’mon, now, people, which would be better? Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders or Kamala Harris–or a president who does, like, nothing? Fumbling, stupid, crazy policies, or no policies? Imagine a president with the good sense to leave the country alone. That would be me!

Now, you know they won’t let me take part in any of those “debates” they have. You saw how they all piled onto Marianne Williamson for coming out of political nowhere and still looking better than the rest of them. “I didn’t know they could be so mean!” she’s saying now. Hey, sister, I coulda toldja. “I didn’t know they lied so much!” Coulda toldja that, too.

So, then, help me build up my campaign war chest by buying my books. Books? What books? You have books? You’re darn tootin’ I do. Just go to this blog’s home page and click “Books,” and find out all about it. You can even order them from there.

Vote for me, Lee Duigon, in all your Democrat primaries!

Because doing nothing is better than doing evil.


We Don’t Own the Schools We Pay For

See the source image

The thought of those Far Left Crazy teachers’ unions shaping the nation is enough to give you nightmares. But they are shaping it, indoctrinating America’s children into the wonders and glories of socialism, transgender, abortion and atheism–and we can’t seem to do anything about it.

In the real world, if you pay for something, it becomes… yours. You own it. But in government-world, you just keep on paying and paying and paying and you never acquire any rights of ownership. The only role the public has in “public education” is, we’re taxed for it.

We don’t get to decide who administers our schools, who teaches our children, or what gets taught. The local school board has no say, either, not really–everything ultimately gets decided by some state authority… and by the politically powerful teachers’ unions: powerful enough to kick sand in our face and laugh. If we vote down the local school budget, all the district has to do is appeal to the state and the state nullifies the cuts.

So all we do is pay.

Without the indoctrinating work done by the public schools, no one in America would even be thinking about socialism, live-birth abortion, 50 different “genders,” open borders, or any of the other suicidal lunatic public policies espoused by Democrats and Far Left teachers’ unions. We would be a very different–and very much better!–kind of country.

Now we face the very real threat of our republic being plowed under by left-wing political zealots who think the object of any public service is to gain control of the keys to the gulag and see how many people they can shove inside. This would not have been possible without the public education establishment.

We pay for our schools, and so we ought to own them. And if that means breaking up the unions–well, I can’t think of a stronger inducement than that. Can you?


‘Hillary Warns: No Criticism Allowed’ (2015)

See the source image

I’ve become convinced that liberals and leftids literally cannot see the devastation wrought by their inside policies.

And I think we must regularly remind ourselves how blessed we were that Hillary Clinton did not become our president.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/03/26/hillary-warns-no-criticism-allowed/

Next year we’ll have another chance to ruin our republic by electing some other far-out Democrat wacko. Our nooze media, Big Tech, Hollywood, and all the rest of them will do their damnedest to make sure it happens.

God help us if it does.


Wiping Out the Cobras: A Parable

See the source image

Now who would want to breed cobras?

I haven’t been able to determine whether this is true or not; but the story goes that in the 19th century, when the British ruled India, the colonial government wanted to put a stop to people being killed by cobras. And so, to eliminate the cobras, the government put a bounty on them.

The people soon realized that, as badly as they needed the bounty money, sooner or later all the cobras would be gone. So… they bred them. Set up home cobra hatcheries: that way there’s always a dead cobra to bring in for a bounty.

When the government found out that people were breeding cobras for fun and profit, they canceled the bounty. With no more money to be made from cobras, the people who had boxes of cobras at home released them into the wild. Presto! They had a much worse cobra problem than they had before.

This is the origin of the expression, “cobra effect,” describing how efforts to solve a problem sometimes make the problem worse.

Especially when the government gets involved.


‘Irrational Humanism’ Explained

See the source image

I’ve been waiting eagerly to share this with you!

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/articles/irrational-humanism-the-reasoned-application-of-a-false-worldview

Why is the Far Left Crazy so crazy? Why are we confronted with so much sheer loopiness–“transgender,” “open borders,” “everything is racist,” and so on, endlessly–which, far from landing its proponents in the madhouse where they belong, are offered to us as genuine public policy options? Options that we’d seize in a New York minute, if we weren’t racists and biggits etc.

Mark Rushdoony explains it clearly and convincingly. It’s their ideology that makes them so patently irrational. In their Darwin-inspired world view, chaos and revolution equal “progress,” and it’s always a good thing to tear down the old to make place for the new–never mind their relative merits, new is always better!

There is a method in their madness.

That’s why they must be utterly defeated. May God equip us for that righteous task!


The Age of Krazy Krap

See the source image

I’m not laughing as much as I ought to at all the krazy krap pouring out of liberals’ minds and mouths these days.

I mean, it should be funny–right?–when liberals demand Open Borders and then freak out when President Trump offers to release hordes of illegal aliens into liberal-run sanctuary cities. Sure, it’s funny. But what’s not so funny is that the leftids’ own towering hypocrisy is completely invisible to them. You offer to give them what they say they want, and then they don’t want it. And so they continue to press for Open Borders for all the rest of us.

Yes, it was high comedy when Mitch McConnell put up the Democrats’ Green New Deal for a vote in the Senate, and they not only cried “Foul!” with wailing and gnashing of teeth–but couldn’t find it in themselves to vote in favor of their own utopian fun pack. That was a hoot. But it’s not funny that they continue to demand all these restrictions for the rest of us.

Fifty-odd “genders” ought to be a scream, and of course we ought to laugh at it. But when they want to make it a criminal offense not to acquiesce to this delusion, that’s not exactly a knee-slapper.

They insist the world is gonna end in just 12 years if we don’t give them everything they want–To Save The Planet, don’t you know–and that ought to have us rolling in the aisles. But their 2016 party platform, the platform their presidential candidate ran on, called for the attorney general to “investigate” the crime of Climate Change Denial–the crime of not believing in their apocalyptic piffle.

Mr. Bean, the Three Stooges, Abbot and Costello, and Laurel and Hardy put together couldn’t match the high goofiness created by liberals today. It’s not just that their ideas are wrong. It’s that their ideas are flagrantly, monumentally, hysterically, out-to-lunch wrong. To the point where we really have to wonder if they’re quite all there.

The thought of them ever again winning an election… Well, that’s not funny at all.


Dem Presidential Wannabe: $1,000 a Month for All

See the source image

Next!

Nobody’s afraid to blurt out a lot of wacko sh** anymore–especially if they’re Democrats who want to run for president.

The newest kook in the kookery is “New York tech entrepreneur” Andrew Yang, whose plan is to pay $1,000 a month to every adult in America (it depends on what “in” is), no questions asked (https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/SF-meets-Andrew-Yang-a-presidential-candidate-13693316.php). He proposes to pay for it by “taxing the tech companies.”

Let’s see… Round off the population to 300 million, although it’s actually several million more… At a thousand bucks a month, that would be 300 thousand million: that is, a cost of $300 billion a month… Times 12 months a year… And that’s a cost of $3.6 trillion a year. All on the tech companies’ dime. In return for which, they get… nothing.

Now, why do we want to do this, Mr. Yang? He explains:

“We need to reconstitute meaning for many, many Americans… This is very much about human empowerment.” We’re going to empower people by making them totally dependent on the government.

Glad he cleared that up.

And as if that weren’t enough, Mr. Yang’s potlatch politics also includes free universal health care, a billion dollars for “local journalism,” and wages for college athletes.

Now we’re waiting for the next Democrat to come along with an offer of even more free stuff.

 


Shock Poll! Men Competing as, ahem, Woman are Cheating

See the source image

“I’m from the National Health Service, and I’m here to help you!”

Wow. Two-third of Britons, in a new poll, think “trans women”–uh, men, actually–who compete in women’s sports have “an unfair advantage,” and are “cheating” (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6793607/Almost-two-thirds-Britons-believe-trans-women-unfair-advantage-sport.html).

This was said first by famous lesbian tennis star Martina Navratilova, and the poll found that two out of three agree with her and only 12% think it’s okay for men to compete in women’s sports. This got the trannies in an uproar, so Navratilova went into grovel mode, explaining that she wasn’t talkin’ about all “trans men,” just the ones who “cynically changed gender” so they could do well in women’s sports. Mon, that’s an awful lot of cynicism.

This comes on the heels of Britain’s National Health Service deciding that “trans women”–that is, men–who have not yet been surgically mutilated into sham “women” are to be cared for in women’s wards in the hospitals. So if you’re a real woman and you need a hospital bed, and they turn you away because some guy got the last bed–well, that’s tough.

If the UK medical establishment honestly believes these men are honest-to-pete “women,” then they’re crazy. If they know the men are not women but go along with it anyway, then they have no integrity and shouldn’t be trusted to practice their version of medicine on anyone.

You’ve heard of “settled science.” Well, this is settled pseudo-science.


When is an “F” not an “F”?

See the source image

When the North Carolina state legislature gets hold of it!

This just in: the legislature is pondering a move to lower the failing grade in the state’s schools to 39 percent or less (https://www.local10.com/education/state-proposes-lowering-f-grade-to-just-39-percent). Currently, you’ve got to score 60 or less to get an F.

Oh, but they’ve got a swell reason for doing this! If they do, it “would allow underperforming schools to continue operating.”

Why should those schools continue operating? Why should the public pay for schools where so many students fail? Because it’d be too big a hassle to close them? So we just keep paying for them? Dig those teacher pensions!

Public education–day by day, sucking the life out of our country.


O-Crazy-O Cortez: No More Babies

See the source image

“I’m the boss!” crowed Democrat Socialist Congressthingy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who a year ago was working as a bartender. But now she lays it on the line for critics of her “Green New Deal.” Until they can come up with something even more ridiculous, she’s the boss.

Meanwhile, she has cited a “scientific consensus” on Climbit Change as a reason for people not to have babies anymore (https://www.dailywire.com/news/43880/ocasio-cortez-people-maybe-shouldnt-reproduce-due-ryan-saavedra). Well, gee, Craze–aren’t you Democrats trying to kill as many babies as you can rush to the abortionist? Someone asked “Is it OK to still have children?” Well, sort of. You don’t want to put Planned Parenthood out of business.

Craze also took a chunk out of another mask-of-sanity Democrat, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, who doesn’t seem all that hot to submit to Craze’s boss-ship. But Feinstein and the rest of the Old Guard, says Craze, are “not good enough. Her watered-down [legislative] proposals are frankly going to kill us.”

To recapitulate, Craze’s Green New Deal includes non-watered-down proposals to demolish every building in America and replace it with a new one, phase out air travel, phase out all “traditional sources of energy” and replace them with sources that don’t work, provide a guaranteed income for everyone, including those “unwilling to work,” no more private ownership of cars, and anything else they can think of… ’cause she’s the boss now.

When you don’t vote Republican, this is what you get.
