Watching FOX News this morning highlights the disconnect for an oldster trying to recognize his country. The focus in the segment I saw was Bernie getting the AOC endorsement and how Warren would make a big ol’ pivot to the center if she got the nod (aka “business as usual”). Its crazy that two of the top three spots on the Democrat side are socialists. The same party sits there and villainizes McCarthy 65 years ago when he pointed out that very thing.
Now Hillary is calling Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset (Tulsi having mildly gone off the reservation on a few items like illegal immigration and impeachment). Hillary figures the Russians are “grooming” Tulsi for a third party run to ensure Trump’s reelection. It is a crazy world. But this was just to introduce the nuttiness, its definitely not the end of it.
Our country has gone off the rails in so many ways. One of the biggest is this concept that has now become the accepted position, that all of Latin America has some God given right to move to the United States?? When the hell did we decide we were a nation without borders? For someone who knows about Eisenhower’s “Operation Wetback“, this is just crazy (after WW II, vets were complaining about the number of jobs taken by illegals, so Dwight forced out the majority of them back to Mexico).
Another “one flew over the cuckoos nest” moment is trade policy. You have RINOs running around saying Trump isn’t a “free trader” because he’s trying to make China adopt fair trade. Its nuts, they have 35% on us, we have ZERO. Related to this is two job issues. Senator Mike Lee right now is trying to throw thousands of tech jobs to new Indian graduates, foreign students! Another Utah Senator can’t start the day with out criticizing fellow Republican Trump. He didn’t utter one discouraging word during Obama’s eight years.
The list just doesn’t end. Boys in the girls room, Drag Time Story Hour at the library, killing babies is a “right”, Russians behind every bush, presidential candidates proudly declaring he’s going to take my guns. Absolute insanity. The Democrats were talking impeachment before Trump was inaugurated! 65 years ago Congress investigated Hollywood for being communists, now they proudly proclaim they are!
As far as I know OPIC is still operating, your tax dollars going to send factories overseas. Then you get into free medical for illegals, illegals being allowed to vote, on and on and on…. Trump taking heat for wanting to bring the troops home. Stuff that is just insane to me. And looming over all of it, is the national debt that is shooting up into the stratosphere, exponential growth being what it is. And everyone goes on blithely ignoring the Mad Hatter. George Orwell said there’d be days like this.
