Have you noticed how the “choice” crowd can never find anything to do but take away your choices? Like here–they’re going to “help” us make better choices by making the choices for us and busting our skulls if we don’t like it. All for our own good, of course.
As the Lord told Isaiah, Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? (Isaiah 2:22).
After this week’s food fight–oops, I mean “debate”–which one of these do you want to see become our president?
The loopy vice president, as crooked as they come, who says things that make you question his very sanity. Like, the other night: “150 million people in the U.S. have been killed by gun violence since 2007.” Dude, you were in office for eight of those 13 years. Didn’t you notice it then? This guy is about two legs short of a three-legged stool.
Then there’s the compulsive liar who always gets caught in her lies–you know, the phony Native American, who lied about her father being a janitor, lied about being fired because she was pregnant. Never tells the truth.
And the socialist upchuck who went to the Soviet Union for his honeymoon and has stocked his campaign team with hooligans. He’s the front runner, so far.
Don’t forget the revolting little sodomite who was a mayor once: who says there’s no place for you in his Democrat party unless you’re gung-ho for abortion, says religious liberty ends where “gay rights” begins, and has the chutzpah to wave a Bible around and pretend that he’s read it.
And the billionaire who says the Party owes him something–owes him a presidential nomination, by thunder–after he spent $100 million in 2018 to elect enough Democrats to capture control of the House of Representatives. “I bought those seats!” he started to say; but he caught himself and changed it to, “I got those seats.” Mr. Tact. Then he brags about his perfect understanding of virtually everything, and talks about how most people are just plain too dumb to run their lives without his direction.
Which of these do you want to be president?
Can you believe a major political party has actually generated this gaggle of candidates?
It looks like the old commie’s going to have enough delegates, going into the convention, to nail down the nomination. Unless something…er… happens (heh-heh). I’m sure they can buy him off; but the thugs and wackos who support him might react a little violently to that. “I am, regrettably, dropping out for reasons of health…”
And in the wings, like a spider, waits… Hillary.
Well, some of us have prayed the Lord to put the Democrat Party out of business, forever.
Two things us deplorables aren’t supposed to have are SUVs and air conditioners, gotta be taken away from us to Save The Planet, don’t you know.
But check out this towering example of Climbit Change hypocrisy perpetrated by Michael Bloomberg in 2012, while he was mayor of New York. Bear in mind that today, as a Democrat presidential candidate, Bloomberg is a Climate Crusader.
This caper didn’t get a lot of attention in 2012, but now that Bloomberg has spent literally hundreds of millions of dollars trying to land the Democrat presidential nomination, and passing himself off as planet-saving climate warrior, photos (like the one above) and videos have resurfaced. Along with a lot of peeyabbah about how actually this pumped out less carbon than just running the AC that came with the car. It seems the one in the car just wasn’t good enough for Mayor Mike.
Two hypocrisies for the price of one! Why wasn’t he just peddling a bicycle down the street, and fanning himself with a recycled piece of paper?
How many times do we have to say this? Every last one of those elite Climate Change alarmists behaves as if he doesn’t believe a single word of the schiff he’s selling us. The whole thing’s just a power grab, with visions of a global government, owned and operated by themselves at our expense, dancing through their heads.
And last night they booed one of their candidates for saying communism “doesn’t work” (ya think?).
Here’s what former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg actually said: “We’re not going to throw out capitalism. We tried that, other countries tried that. It was called communism, and it just doesn’t work.”
Moans and boos! Boo, capitalism! That was the audience.
What do they actually want? “Democratic socialism”? But what is that? A Soviet Union with Democrats in charge, probably. They want free stuff. It isn’t really free, someone has to pay for it, but they don’t know and they don’t care. It’s really an immoral mind-set. And it doesn’t create wealth, but destroys it. The Soviet Union collapsed, and Red China, while keeping the communist label, turned to fascism. Even fascism works better than communism.
As someone who grew up in the 1950s and 60s, it’s just about inconceivable to me that any political party, except the Communist Party itself, would ever consent to serve as a haven for communists.
Chalk that change up to public education.
That’s who’s responsible for Americans defending communism.
At first we–Susan, Patty, and I–thought this couldn’t possibly be Michael Bloomberg, just a totally awesome imitation. I mean, c’mon! Bloomberg would never say anything as baldly obvious as “Maybe I can make people behave!”
We looked it up, though–and holy cow, it really was Bloomberg! In 2006. Fourteen years ago. In 2006 he did this takeoff on Mary Poppins to, well, make light of his presidential prospects.
Thing is, that “make people behave” schtick is pure, unadulterated Bloomberg. He’s said it many times: use taxation as a means of behavior modification. The government should use taxes to encourage or deter certain behaviors. To “train” us, like Pavlov’s dogs. And what you don’t want to tax, you ban.
Mr. Bloomberg very, very much wants to “make people behave.”
He’s trying to sell himself to us as a… “moderate.”

When most people put Mentos candy into a bottle of soda, as seen in this video, they get a kind of eruption. But my friend Mr. Frothee, when he does it, gets visions of the future. Like these.
*America now has a “social credit system,” like China’s. You gain points for doing and saying things the government approves of; and then you’re allowed to do things like buy food, ride the bus, or replace broken shoelaces. If your social credit rating goes down, you lose your privileges.
*Every four years, Emperor Michael Bloomberg appoints the president and members of Congress. He has spent $20 billion to amend the Constitution to this extent. “But it was worth it,” he says.
*Three out of five Americans now live in collective community residences. (“These are not nice places,” says Mr. Frothee.) Your social credit rating determines how often you will be allowed to go outside. Undercover privacy inspectors are always on hand to make sure you have no privacy.
Mr. Frothee does not enjoy being clairvoyant. “It kind of gets to you, after a while,” he says. “My only comfort is the fact that I’m certifiably crazy and these visions don’t have any chance of coming true.”
“California is a great example for the rest of this country,” babbled the daft ex-mayor.
Oh? You mean that state, the only state out of fifty, where they turn off your electricity for days at a time?
What a role model. Why, every state needs a disastrously failed high-speed rail project that gulps down billions of dollars at a swallow, never to be seen again. Every state needs millions of illegal aliens pouring in, demanding free stuff. And who doesn’t envy San Francisco, where the public sidewalks do double duty as latrines?
As mayor of New York, Bloomberg won lasting fame by trying to ban everything enjoyed by adults, from cigarettes to sodas. He has often aired his view that governments can and should use taxation as a means of behavior modification… ’cause, ya know, people do need their behavior modified by philosopher-kings.
But if he had ever run his business enterprises like the Democrats run California, we wouldn’t be hearing from him now.
He’d be just another homeless person taking a dump on the sidewalk.
Former New York City Mayor Michael “Soda Ban” Bloomberg has announced himself as a candidate for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Bloomberg, the ninth-richest person on earth, also owns Bloomberg News, an enormous media enterprise.
Soda Ban has announced “new rules” for journalists working for Bloomberg News:
No “investigating” any Democrat candidate, especially him.
No unsigned editorials.
The members of the editorial board who used to write the editorials have joined their boss’s political campaign team. It’d be too hard to be on two political campaign teams at once.
I mean, okay, sure, the guy who owns the newspaper is going to have his views represented in it–on the editorial page. Not disguised as factual news reports. I realize that what I’m saying is ridiculously old-fashioned, but I can’t help it–that was how we did journalism, back when I was an editor and reporter. You put the opinion on the opinion page.
But this is breathtakingly flagrant. This is hypocrisy on steroids. Bloomberg Nooze will continue to “investigate” President Donald Trump and any other Republican, but all the Democrats are out of bounds.
Mayor Soda Ban has already spent $34 million on campaign ads, and he’s only just started. He now has made sure that at least one very large news corporation won’t be peering through his keyhole. The others will probably all follow suit.
Our free and independent press pioneered this sort of non-coverage by refusing ever to examine the background, credentials, and character of President *Batteries Not Included. But that’s only because they were so busy praising him.
I heard someone on the radio today defending New York ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s various bans–large sodas, too much salt, smoking, etc.–as “common sense.”
“For all practical purposes,” the speaker argued, “we have socialized medicine in New York City. If you get sick, we have to treat you. But why should we have to pay all that money treating medical problems that people have brought on themselves by doing things that aren’t good for their health? It’s really just common sense to ban those things.” (I am simplifying here, but that’s the argument: I’ve heard it before, and so have you.)
It seems to be common sense; but the question that must arise is, “Well, then, where do you stop?”
How intrusive do you want the government to be? If it’s going to ban unhealthy actions–eating too much fast food, drinking too much soda, what have you–why not mandate healthful behavior? Wouldn’t that save a lot of money? Go to bed at such-and-such a time. Get up in time to do your mandatory calisthenics. If you have to go anywhere, walk or ride your bike. And we’ll check to make sure you do those things. We’ll hire a whole army of busybodies to keep tabs on you.
I think the term for that kind of life is “dystopia.” Or “perpetual childhood.” If that’s common sense, they can keep it.
