Short and Not Sweet

A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for more of the above.

What Is True Social Justice?

BrookingsFromJanuary - CopyIn an article entitled Why Trump frightens the GOP Illuminati, author Lee Cary quoted Robert Kagan, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution–a political think tank that claims to be independent and non-partisan. Here’s a sample of their non-partisanship, in which Trump supporters are analyzed in the most arrogant, insulting way, adding selfishness and a dearth of empathy (i.e., sociopathy) to the usual descriptors applied by the elite to Trump supporters:

racism and nativism and xenophobia and misogyny and homophobia and anti-Semitism.

And they wonder why folks in flyover country support Trump.

Paean to Income Inequality?

This song, The Trees, by 1970s-era progressive rock band Rush describes a dispute between maples and oaks in an imaginary forest.  The maples resent the oaks for being taller, because, in the maples’ opinion, the oaks are hogging all the light.  The oaks don’t understand that point of view, because they’re only doing what comes naturally. The song ends thusly:

… So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
‘The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light’
Now there’s no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw.

Who Wants Income Equality? Do You?

minuteman - Copy

While arguing for a large increase in the minimum wage, Barack Obama recently said:

Across the developed world, inequality has increased. … But this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country, and it challenges the very essence of who we are as a people.

Obama called this perceived need to address the allegedly growing income inequality as the

defining challenge of our time.

We know Obama only too well, and so we also know that the challenge, in Obama’s reasoning, is how to impose communism, redistribution, and income equality on nearly everyone in the USA (with the elite like himself excepted).

Obamacare: Take Your Medicine, and Like It! (Open Thread)

Yucky_Medicine - Copy

Tomorrow the Obamacare exchanges are supposed to open for business.  Whether they will function or not is yet to be seen.  Word is that the software has glitches (see here, also) and is vulnerable to determined hackers and identity thieves.  All the crack software developers are probably working for Barack Obama’s spying NSA, so it’s likely that software development for Obamacare was farmed out to well-connected progressive friends of Obama’s–like ACORN community organizers, “minority” contractors, and former hackers who quickly created startups with a little help from the taxpayers via the Stimulus.

Like this president, prior experience and a record of accomplishments not required. Continue reading

Requiem for a Twinkie (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS November 16, 2012

Thanks to greedy union members, 18,500 employees of Hostess will now be out of work.   We the People might have to say goodbye to those delicious treats that so many of us have learned to love.

Gone will be Twinkies. Gone will be Hostess cupcakes.

No more Ding Dongs.  No more Ho Hos.

Gone, too, will be Wonder Bread, the bread that most of us grew up eating.
