Incompetent Republicans like Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell, the United States Senate Majority Leader, has not passed a single major piece of legislation in the United States Senate.  You have to ask yourself why that is.  He has been in charge for quite some time and he just does not seem to have what it takes to get the job done.  Why not?  Is he is incompetent?  We certainly think so.  He seems to be more of a progressive or just plain incompetent at advancing conservative legislation.

Democrats oppose tax cuts because they oppose freedom.

The Democrat Party is always predictable when it comes to taxes.  (You don't have to subscribe to any of the liberal publications to know what Democrats think about tax cuts: they are opposed.  And they always come up with the same answer: it's for the rich!)    Democrats always oppose lowering taxes, because that would provide more opportunities for millions of individuals.   When tax rates are lowered, people are more free and happier because they are retaining more of their own wealth that they can use for their own purposes.   Democrats oppose this because they would prefer to use the money instead for political purposes, such as rewarding political donors and stoking class warfare by arguing against "tax cuts for the rich."  We live in a decentralized environment, however, and increasingly, we are moving against complex, opaque, and centralized political institutions and moving to a world in which individuals and voluntary organizations yield more and more power.   What do most of these government agencies in Washington DC have to do with our day to day living?  For the vast majority of Americans, these agencies don't have anything to do with day to day life.

The Democrat Party is obsolete.  It does not stand for anything anymore other than aggrandizing more and more power for itself.

Democrats have a reprehensible history that includes slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the internment of Japanese Americans, and sterilization of "imbeciles," so it comes as no surprise that such a reprehensible political party would also oppose allowing people to be more free by keeping more of their income.   The Democrats do not even argue that tax cuts reduce federal revenue.  At a political debate, candidate Barack Obama opposed tax cuts, even if it increases federal revenue, out of an issue of "fairness."  

Democrats want more people to be enslaved by a boring, unfulfilled life on welfare, where they are given a check to take care of their basic necessities.  However, such people will never be happy.  If you have any doubts about my view on this, check to see how happy people are in Maxine Water's district, which includes some of the poorest parts of Los Angeles.  The main reason why is because people want to be free to pursue their own dreams, and living a life on welfare does not allow you to achieve your dreams.  Instead, it fulfills the dreams of the elitists because it makes them even more important.  If you need politicians to provide you a check for your basic survival, then you no longer are an equal with the politician.  The politician, and the government, literally have the opportunity to control you by dictating many portions of your private life if you wish to continue receiving a government check.   Why would you surrender so much of your authority over your life to people who you do not know, do not love you, do not understand your life, and will never be able to make you happy?  That makes no sense whatsoever.

Hugh Hefner died today.

Hugh Hefner died today. Iconic, famous, and controversial, he merged the art of pictorial representations of naked women and high brow articles in a single magazine. One of a kind... there will never be another like him -- mainly because we live in a different era, one in which such pictures barely raise an eyebrow now, and the publishing era is in a large term secular decline.  IF YOU FOUND THIS MATERIAL informative, please feel free to make a donation through my Patreon account here and click "BECOME A PATRON."

Why is Saudi Arabia allowing women to drive: economics.

Why is Saudi Arabia letting women drive? It's not due to Twitter protests, hashtags, or political opinion in Western countries. None of that matters to the rulers in Saudi Arabia. This is just plain economics: the price of oil is low and there is little evidence to suggest it is going up anytime soon. When oil prices were high, the state could provide generous subsidies thanks to the sale of oil.   That is, the subsidies allowed the state to subsidize a tyrannical system where women could not drive.   (As a side note: absent Western technology, the Saudis would never be able to recover any of the oil). Saudi Arabia will find it impossible to continue this practice with low and possibly lower oil prices. As oil goes lower, I suspect we may find other wonderful developments. So the frackers in America are doing their part for women's rights in far off places like Saudi Arabia. Cheers to frackers!

Democrat voters like tyrants.

Democrat voters like tyrants.  Go to any liberal Member of Congress's Facebook page and you are highly likely to find many constituents slavishly supporting that individual.  You will find zero criticism of their policies but instead will find people writing things such as, "I am so happy that someone as brilliant/intelligent as you" are my member of Congress.  Most Democrat voters also know very little about policy but instead they feel emotionally connected with their local representative -- even if their representative is voting to increase their taxes and/or fees.  When one points out that many grievances that have been made recently, such as unaffordable housing, can be tied to regulations and permit fees that make building a house expensive or difficult, the Democrat voter is very likely to just lash out in disgust that anyone can criticize their amazingly intelligent local politician.  Democrat voters want to imagine that voting Democrat every two years somehow makes their life better.  No need to do anything on their own--voting Democrat has magical qualities.

It's not about the Confederate statues. It's about re-writing American history.

We have always held the view that Democrats don't like America very much.  We always seem to get more evidence that this is the case.  The recent policy of trying to tear down Confederate statues is in line with the view that Democrats wish to erase a great deal of our history -- because they wish to re-write the basic structure of our country.  The current American political and economic system is based upon the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Enlightenment: we stand on the pillars of true geniuses who provided us with the absolute best structure of government we could ever imagine.  What the Democrats would love to do, if they had the chance, is to completely eliminate all vestiges from the 18th century, including the American Constitution, and replace it with a new constitution that will empower the federal government even more and diminish the freedoms and liberties of individual Americans.

Antifa is a terrorist organization

Antifa is a terrorist group

Nothing good comes from this new terrorist group called "Antifa."  The Antifa folks are nothing more than hired goons who do not believe in any of the American values that we hold dear.  The U.S. government must arrest all members of Antifa and put them in prison for at least ten years.  Antifa criminals engage in violence and stop individuals such as Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, and others, from speaking.  How can we tolerate a fascist organization like this?

California wastes money when Republican wins White House

I noticed a pattern in California recently. Since 2000, every time a Republican wins the presidency, California has to waste a lot of money for some political point. For instance, after the 2000 election, California spent a lot of money creating electronic touchscreen voting machines. Over time, election officials realized that these machines could be hacked and the state of California decertified these election machines. In 2004, California spent billions on stem cell research because President Bush was against taxpayer use of this research. No discoveries have been made as a result of this money. Fast forward to today: President Trump wants to deport illegal aliens, so California will spend millions on defense attorneys to represent illegal aliens. The end result is that probably 100% of the people will still be deported, but they will have had attorneys! California politicians love to throw money down the drain.

Los Angeles's Unfair Housing Policy of Forcing Developers to Make Low Income Housing

One of the least fair housing policies is the mandatory policy requiring developers to set aside a portion of units in a new housing development for 'low income' households. In practical terms, this means that individuals who achieve must subsidize, through higher prices, those who are moochers and are not even paying the cost of constructing such a unit. Even liberals don't like this (at least, when they have to live with the results). After reading many Yelp reviews of luxury apartments, many tenants are shocked that people with very low income are living in the same building as them. Even people who reflexively vote Democrat can feel that there is a sense of injustice that they may have graduated from college, perhaps graduate or professional school, and they end up in the same place as some loser who dropped out of high school, used drugs, etc, etc. When it comes to hotels, we let the free-market prevail. We don't assume that someone who dropped out of high school will be staying at the Ritz Carlton. But in cities like LA, there is an assumption that when it comes to long-term housing, the free-market cannot be trusted.

A politically incorrect view of Hawaii

Here is the politically incorrect viewpoint of the day: Some Hawaiians (mostly activist nuts) are upset with the United States for overturning the monarchy and later turning Hawaii into a territory, and later, a state. Even the U.S. Congress and former President Bill Clinton actually apologized to the Hawaiians for doing so. However, this was unnecessary. Eventually, SOME country would have conquered Hawaii one way or another because it simply lacked the ability to defend itself militarily (what are they going to defend themselves with--coconuts?). Would the Hawaiians have been happier with China or Japan running their island? I doubt it. Hawaiians should be happy that they are a state and have the protections and political and economic stability that comes from being a U.S. state. They have the ability to elect the nutjobs who run the island very badly and they have representation in the U.S. Congress. To the extent that things aren't perfect in the Aloha state, maybe they should question the one-party state instead. ;0
