Poor policy…

The trouble with Democratic gay candidates is that they display no class.  If the only way you can think of to piss off Donald Trump is to kiss your partner in your  campaign ad,  you are are low on intelligence,  information,  creativity,  and class.

I suspect most Democratic voters won’t find it a winning display either.

It would appear…

…that the Democrats’ supposed unity is a sham.   A crowded House primary in the Houston area has revealed the  continuing war   in the party between progressives who backed Bernie Sanders and members of the establishment who spent so much blood and treasure trying to protect Hillary and ensure her ascension to the Oval Office.

The Blue Wave so confidently predicted by so many pundits for the mid-term elections may not materialize if this battle isn’t resolved.   I frankly don’t see an end in sight because the original cause has not gone away.  Why would it?  Part of the Democratic Party knows the DNC cheated like mad, and that Hillary doesn’t give a hoot about them.  The other part thinks the world would be fine if only Bernie Sanders’ socialist wet dreams were realized,  and like the good goons they are,  they are only too happy to blow things up — literally and figuratively  —  to get their way.

Yeah,   I am enjoying watching them claw each others’ eyes out….

What will Democrats stand for?

leave a comment »

It has taken a week,  but the Republican National Committee has put out an ad whacking the Democrats for their sour, sitting on their hands performance at the State of the Union event.  It makes them look every bit as bad as their behavior was.  Have a look at it  here.

New Year 2018…

leave a comment »

The weather is nasty in much of the country,  including my corner of it,  so I plan to celebrate New Year’s at home in my sweats and warm slippers.   Assuming the power stays on despite the high demand for heat,  I may do some big-batch cooking.   I know I’ll be making dozens of trips to let BiG Girl in and out,  because she has a very thick winter coat and considers anything below freezing to be very comfortable weather.  In a decade I have never seen her actually behave as if she were cold.   Apparently if she becomes chilled,  she just runs up and down a fence line for a few minutes and then lies in the snow,  which melts on contact when she hits it

There is not enough money in the universe to send me to times Square for New Year’s Eve.   It was bad enough many years ago, but now I regard it as one of Dante’s rings  of Hell  to which I would not subject myself.

There are  plenty of  other ways to reflect on the end of 2017,  thoughtfully listed by the Corner’s Debby Witt.   There are also  many other  New Year’s traditions.   Now I don’t personally know people who totally fit these profiles,  but there are some who come pretty close.   What about you?

Australia has already started the celebrations  with spectacular  fireworks displays,  as usual,  and I’ll add more as updates if I run across them.   There is a great shot of one of the  fireworks barges  blowing up accidentally — oops!

If you live in California,  I’m afraid Gov. Moonbeam and his progressive pack of fools are offering you only disaster,  no joy.   Have a look at these six laws  which go into effect in the state on New Year’s Day.   They are insane and a prime example of the jack-booted thuggery progressives display when they are in charge.   Is it any wonder California had the most UFO sightings  last year?

Whether you are a Trump supporter or Trump-hater,  you have to admire his thumping of the Democrats and the Obama economy in  year-end tweets.   The general public apparently  isn’t listening  to the Democratic doomsayers as closely as it once did….

UPDATE:  I forgot to include Debby Witt’s always entertaining collection of links  involving the day.

Watch out tonight for a the  largest full  moon of 2018.

Race-card politics…

leave a comment »

The Democrats’ use of the race-card in their never-ending employment of identity politics instead of actual policies is exquisitely skewered by Ed Rogers  here.  Fortunately,  for the good of the nation,  Democrats are either unable to grasp the very real harm their position do to the country or they simply don’t give a damn,  so they keep repeating the same mistakes.   They truly believe they have not merely the right,  but also the duty to call any opponents hateful names and hurl the most dreadful invective against them  —  hence Hillary’s  “basket of deplorables.”

I assure you Hillary did not think of that term unaided.  We the People responded by having T-shirts printed up which read “adorable deplorable” and which enraged more than a few progressives.   It is the Democratic swamp which protects group-think and the go-along to get along mindset.  Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is not a Republican,  and neither are the people he assaulted and put the squeeze on.  What we do know is that his victims were willing to exchange their bodies for career advancement,  which to my mind says more about them than it does Weinstein.   The same is largely true of people who blindly vote Democratic,  no matter how damaging it is to them to have Democrats actually in power.  One plays the race-card when one has nothing else to offer….

When a scandal isn’t…

leave a comment »

Is when it involves a Democrat.   You could,  like NBC just did,  claim Sen. Robert Menendez is  a Republican,  but apparently  Big Media finds it so much easier to simply ignore the fact that the New Jersey senator is on trial for  public corruption.

It’s the first time in 36 years that a sitting U.S. senator has been on trial for bribery, so one might conclude that it would qualify as front page news.   It certainly would if a Republican were involved,  but since it’s a Democrat,  liberal media really doesn’t have any incentive to mention it,  having long ago abandoned any pretense of doing the actual job for which the Constitution offers protections.

The real resistance…

From the front lines in California,  a first-hand  report on  a Maxine Waters townhall,  where she tried to keep people out,  then tried to escape from them.   It will be interesting to see if the reliably lefty L.A. Times characterizes the bullhorns and boos as anarchists at work.
