Democrats Can’t Decide Between the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare

Ever wonder why Hillary Clinton got so many votes? Is it because democrats love Hillary? Ummm…no. Many dems maintained a severe dislike for Clinton personally, but she was the one on the ballot not named Trump. That and they don’t want their government freebies revoked.

But there is another reason, and it is more disconcerting then just being a lifelong democrat or a layabout. Democrats are the least informed voters in the nation. I hesitate to say they are stupid. That’s not it. Many dems are otherwise very intelligent.

Rather, democrats are just hopelessly ill-informed.

For proof of this, late night Talk Show host Jimmy Kimmel had his people hit the streets of Los Angeles, not once, but twice, to demonstrate just how little the average man or woman on the street knows of Obama’s most recognizable initiative – Obamacare.

Yesterday I posted an article  about Rosie O’Donnell wishing to suspend Trump’s inauguration by invoking martial law. Much like Kimmel, Pam Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative sent a reporter to the streets of Manhattan to discover most were in favor of “martial law,” despite not knowing what it is. Their reasoning: Anything that might thwart Trump. read more

DO REPUBLICANS WANT TO CRIPPLE GOVERNMENT?

Do we really want a “nimble” federal government? Or do we want one that is slow, plodding and methodical. I suppose it depends on whom you ask.

Anyone (hopefully) on the right, and who is a friend to the Constitution, would surely say they would vastly prefer a government that operates much as does an aircraft carrier. Although much of these things are classified to some extent, it can take, for example, up to five nautical miles just to stop a carrier – much less to reverse course. In other words – far from nimble – which is exactly what the founders intended to slow the intrusive creep of government. read more

Unionization Will Kill Free Market Ride Sharing Like Uber and Lyft

by: the Common Constitutionalist

If one were to look in an Encyclopedia (like Google for old folks) for the modern-day definition or explanation of free-market capitalism – beside the detailed explanation, might be the logos of the ride sharing services Uber and Lyft.

These services are the virtually unregulated, non-unionized, and much less expensive version of the taxi. This is the real free-market at work and it’s proving to work quite well without government and/or thuggish Union oversight.

Practically anyone can become a driver for one of these services. One must be at least 21 years of age, have a 4-door sedan or equivalent, have a valid driver’s license and insurance, a minimum of three years driving experience and pass a motor vehicle and criminal background check. Do that and you have yourself a part or full time job.

Uber is one of those “only in America” ideas that can only spawn in a free-market. In less than seven short years the company went from triumphantly tweeting that it had made its first $5 on March 27, 2010, less than four months after it began, to having a worth of almost $70 billion worldwide. read more

Real First Lady Ivanka Trump May be a Problem

Okay – this isn’t disturbing at all! The unelected, unaccountable liberal daughter of the president-elect, having the stones to call members of the United States Congress to begin to pressure them into “getting the ball rolling” on yet another unconstitutional and massive government program – her signature cause – freebie child care legislation. I can just see her saying: “If you don’t – I’ll tell my daddy.”

Socialist diner bitten by reality

A few years ago, young entrepreneur Ryan Cappelletti had an idea to open a restaurant. In Grand Rapids, Michigan, he opened the vegan and vegetarian Bartertown Diner. But Ryan was no ordinary restaurateur. He and his 16 eventual employees were socialists, collectivists, with a streak of anarchist. What a combo. In other words, don’t use capitalist terms like “entrepreneur,” to describe him – although it fits. That term is strictly reserved for the bourgeoisie, not him or his employees, who consider themselves Marxist proletariat.

MiBiz.com wrote that, “They eschew business plans and detailed financial projections in favor of vision and values. Above all, they take the old ‘benevolent dictator’ management model and turn it on its head, creating democratic workplaces where everyone is the CEO of something.” read more

Podcast – Surveillance Bill Rushed Through the House – Bring Back the Firing Squad

Late last week the House of Representatives, who represent no one anymore, ramrodded a Bill through the House to effectively mandate tracking devices for people with mental impairments. They broke their own rules and cancelled all debate – silencing any detractors to push this through. Before anyone has a chance to complain, the Bill will be rushed through and Senate and quickly signed into law by Obama. And it’s much worse than it sounds.

Complaints are mounting over the humane treatment of inmates being put to death by lethal injection. It seems the knock-out drug does not do an adequate job, leaving some to struggle and writhe on the gurney for extended periods. This can all be solved, cheaply, efficiently and effectively by bringing back the tried and true firing squad, which works every time. read more

Is the Trump Deal with Carrier a Good Thing

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

“The holidays came early this year for workers at a Carrier furnace plant in Indiana, who learned on Tuesday that 800 of their jobs would not be moving to Mexico after all,” wrote the New York Times.

Trump and VP-elect Mike Pence, who is still governor of Indiana, “cut a deal with Carrier, a division of United Technologies, to keep the jobs in the state.”

Although the deal has been widely publicized, the specific terms have not, beyond claiming that, “the State of Indiana has reportedly offered the company $7 million in tax breaks over 10 years to keep the jobs in the state.”

It’s interesting that, so far, no one on the right appears to be curious about the details of the meeting or the deal – just that Trump saved 800 or so American jobs, while those on the left, like the New York Times, are too busy trying to convince us that the jobs were saved by government.

Those on the right are correct. Without the Trump/Pence intervention, these 800 jobs would be lost. However, as much as it pains me to say that the New York Times is also correct, they write, “In making the deal, Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence have embraced the idea that the government does indeed have a role to play in the free market.” read more

Post-Racial Obama

from Michelle Malkin:

Here is what eight years of President Obama’s “post-racial” reign have wrought.

The weekend before Election Day, Hillary Clinton grinned from ear to ear at a Cleveland rally while reciting a verse from Jay-Z’s remix of Young Jeezy’s “My President is Black.” As the rapper and his Black Lives Matter-promoting wife, Beyonce, beamed on stage nearby, pandersuit-clad Clinton twanged with a stilted accent:

“Remember, Jay memorably said: ‘Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk, and Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run, and Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly.'” read more

The left will never be satisfied with their candidate

It’s funny (not “ha ha” funny) that no matter how many years go by and how long the Democrats have run things in this country, the left is still not satisfied.

Jim Garrison, founder of Ubiquity University, like so many leftists, told us in 2013, five years into Obama’s presidency, that he believes “we are headed into a catastrophic system failure because of the collective refusal of our governments to deal adequately with climate change. I believe at the same time there is a huge, growing number of people who want fundamental change.” read more

The Hitler Youth of 2016

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

The Hitler Youth Movement, or Wandervögel, began in 1920 with few members. By the 1930’s its ranks had swelled into the millions.

The children were indoctrinated in the ways of the Arian Nation and brainwashed to believe only in teachings of the Führer – not their teachers, friends – not even their parents.

Today, the same appears to be happening to our young skulls full of mush (h/t: Rush), as they are being similarly indoctrinated and brainwashed to believe global warming is happening and mankind is the one and only cause.

The Weather Channel had long ago sold out to the global warming lobby, but the nation, and frankly the world, is no longer buying into their hysteria.

The United Nations publishes a poll each year ranking the concerns of millions throughout the globe. The most recent was released just a couple of weeks ago. Of the 10 million or so people who responded, global warming, or climate change, ranked dead last amongst the list of pressing issues – even below the need for “phone and internet access.” read more
