TGIF – November 16, 2018.

November 16, 2018

Our government’s socialist slide.

Democrats are patting themselves on the back for winning back the House, but as they often do, they are taking credit where none is due.

In reality, the people who placed the GOP in minority party status were primarily socialist-leaning progressives.

Of the 36 or 37 nominally Democratic winners approximately 20 will be joining the 78 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Without them, the Democrats would still be playing second fiddle.

These progressives still call themselves Democrats because that’s where the money is, not because they bear any resemblance to the Democrats of the 1990s.

That makes nearly 20% of our elected representatives people who adhere far more closely to the socialist philosophies of Karl Marx than the democratic ideals of George Washington or Ben Franklin.

That should bother us, but apparently it doesn’t.

The roster of progressives includes somewhat familiar  names like Ted Lieu, Keith Ellison, Sheila Jackson Lee, Luis Gutierrez, Marcia Fudge (who is toying with the idea of challenging Nancy Pelosi) and Bernie Sanders, but it also includes people you’ve probably never heard of, like Hank Johnson, Mark Desaulnier, Rick Nolan or Darren Soto. They will be joined by some of the newer “stars” like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, an avowed “democratic” socialist.

Given the all-out multi-generational efforts of the left to indoctrinate the nation’s children toward socialism, this is a trend we would be wise to counter, while we still can.

No one gets a trophy every time.

In the wake of elections in Florida and Georgia people are wondering, what IS it about Democrats that they just can’t accept that they can lose?

We submit that it goes back to the liberals basic philosophy that everyone should get a trophy.

Perhaps if we gave Bill Nelson, Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams a nice participation trophy and a sucker in their choice of flavor, they might be content to accept reality.

Watch out for that turkey sausage.

If only the FDA would put as much verve into finding out why we can’t trust our food not to kill us as it does on flavored tobacco, this could be a better Thanksgiving. Many people prefer ground turkey products to ground beef or pork, but once again, we have gotten an alert (from the CDC not the FDA or USDA) that these products are contaminated with salmonella. Way to go folks.
