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

The Left Accuses Republicans of trying to Rig the Court

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’ve stated before that if we wish to witness where the left really wants to take us – don’t read the Washington Post, the New York Times or even watch CNN. No – to get the true pulse of the left, we must look at off-the-wall leftist sites like ThinkProgress.

ThinkProgress makes no effort to soft sell its Marxist ideology – no veiled attempt at fairness. Every article written and all commentary is unvarnished progressivism. These are the views of all leftist statists, if they dared to be honest. But they cannot, for if they were to be, they would never win another election.

A couple of days ago, Ian Millhiser, the “Justice Editor” at ThinkProgress, penned a piece entitled, “We may be living in the final days of the Supreme Court of the United States – Constitution, meet crisis.”

Without even reading, we should be able to surmise that Mr. Millhiser is going to whine about the lack of a ninth supreme Court justice – that it is a crisis – that it’s just not fair, and that the republican Senate is shirking its Constitutionally mandated responsibility. read more

Podcast – Is the FBI for Real This Time – Outrage over a Letter

It’s everywhere! If you are following the goings on in the presidential campaign, you can’t help but have heard the news that FBI Director James Comey has reopened the case against Hillary Clinton regarding the use of emails. What we don’t know is why, at virtually the eleventh hour, has he decided this. I kick around a couple of theories.

I, the Common Constitutionalist, recently received a get acquainted letter from the new Superintendent of Public Schools in the district where I reside. I made the mistake of opening the email and was outraged at what I saw. read more

The Left is Deeply Disappointed with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

By: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The shine of one of the progressive left’s icons has recently been tarnished. I liked to say that supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be mellowing with age, but it seems like she has been aged for decades.

However, she did stun a whole lot of nouveau-leftists in her interview  with Yahoo’s resident shrew, Katie Couric.

Many younger liberals have come to call Ginsberg, Notorious RBG, for her stance on abortion and such, but it appears she may have lost the gangsta moniker when the topic turned to something I’m sure Couric and most leftists would consider “safe.”

Katie brought up the Colin Kaepernick, National Anthem flap that so many, including me, have been talking and writing about for many weeks. I don’t know what Couric was expecting to hear, but I can guarantee it wasn’t this.

Couric asked Ginsberg: “How do you feel about 49ers player Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who have basically refused to stand for the National Anthem?” read more

Podcast – The FBI is as Corrupt as All the Rest – San Francisco Keeps its Open-Air Urinal

James Comey, Director of the FBI, has evidently sold his soul to the Obama administration. The days of an independent Federal Bureau of Investigation are over. Comey has joined forces with Obama and Hillary Clinton to obstruct bringing Hillary to justice. By making side deals and destroying evidence, Comey has ceased to America’s top cop and has now become part of Hillary’s defense team.

A Christian Group in San Francisco filed a lawsuit against the city to remove an open-air urinal from a popular park. The pissoir, as it is called, was installed in Dolores Park in an attempt to stop individuals from relieving themselves pretty much everywhere else. The Christian group says its smell bad and is generally offensive. A judge did not agree. read more
