Quotes and a link. Being a Lefty means never having to admit being dead wrong and on the wrong side of history, the present, and the future.

Insight: “The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that — however bloody — can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.” —Lysander Spooner (1808-1887)

For the record I: “Stacey Abrams and the Democrats cost Georgia $100 million in revenue because they complained about something they didn’t read and they said something about it that wasn’t true.” —Senator Rand Paul

For the record II: “CHALLENGE: Find one Georgia citizen who WANTS to vote, but is thwarted by having no ID. Just one. And if you find one, watch how quickly their problem is solved by volunteers. What we have — in all likelihood — is an imaginary problem, which is fairly normal for us.” —Scott Adams

The bottom line: “Denver’s black population … is somewhere around 9 percent. You want to see a segregated city, come visit Denver. That might be something [MLB Commissioner Rob] Manfred, who runs a league with one black majority owner, might ponder as his limo drives by the blinding whiteness of neighborhoods … on his way from Denver International to downtown. … A new Morning Consult poll shows only 36 percent opposition to the new law. Can you imagine what those polls would look like if most of the media weren’t blatantly lying about the bill 24-7? But Manfred obviously doesn’t care about the lies. He doesn’t care about the fans. He doesn’t care to know anything about the law. He doesn’t care about the black community. If he did, he wouldn’t have moved the game. Rob Manfred, like so many others who wilt at the first sign of left-wing hysterics, is there to protect Rob Manfred.” —David Harsanyi

Straight from the horse’s mouth: “We’re not standing here and calling for companies to boycott. That’s not what our focus is on from the White House. We do believe that the focus on Georgia is a reminder … that this is much bigger than Georgia.” —White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki (Yes, it is much bigger — as in Democrats’ attempt to rewrite all election law from Congress in the form of HR 1.)

And last… “Wait until the MLB finds out that the former president of Coors Brewing Company (Coors Field), Joseph Coors, was a Goldwater supporter and helped start the Heritage Foundation.” —Amber Athey

Now Biden Wants a Border Wall
DHS Secretary Mayorkas says that border wall construction needs to resume to fill “gaps.”

New York has gone rotten to the core.. So Lefties,, just which Repub you going to blame here?
https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/new-york-city-death-spiral-destruction-michael-goodwin

"Washington is sending trainloads of money to blue states to bail out their high-tax, high-spend habits. As longtime government guru Dick Ravitch writes in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, "Congress has been generous, allocating more than $12 billion to New York state, $6 billion to the city, $6 billion to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and $9 billion to the state’s schools."

The state’s take raises the total budget about to be adopted to $212 billion, some $18 billion higher than the fiscal year that just ended. Florida, which has 2 million more people, will make do with spending $97 billion this year.

Ah, but in Albany, it’s never enough. Not as long as the Legislature is in session."

Just like Ca.,, people and business are leaving.

Thug friendly, Massive taxation..
Yup,, good job LIBS.....

Walt

Yes,, going to kick N.Y. while it's down.
Looky what the illegals gust scored!
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/04/07/watch-illegal-aliens-end-hunger-strike-after-winning-2-1b-in-taxpayer-funded-aid-from-andrew-cuomo/

"While more than a million jobs have been lost in New York and an estimated 80,000 New York businesses may not make it to the end of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, Cuomo and state Democrats will provide $2.1 billion in stimulus checks and unemployment-style benefits to nearly 200,000 illegal aliens.

Previous estimates suggested illegal aliens could receive up to $28,600 a year thanks to the taxpayer-funded benefits approved by Cuomo. Weekly, illegal aliens could receive $500. For those unemployed since March 2020, illegal aliens could receive, on average, $12,600.

New York, and particularly New York City, has been ravaged by Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) economic lockdown measures that have now been in place for more than a year. Historic venues, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, and local neighborhood spots have had to close their doors for good as a result of the lockdowns.

Those forced to close include The Roosevelt hotel in Midtown East, which opened in 1924; the Copacabana nightclub, which opened in 1940; The Paris Cafe, which opened in 1873; and Empire Coffee & Tea, which opened in 1908, among hundreds of others."

I will let the crickets do the yelling from the LIB side of the fence.

Anyone notice how many fences the left puts up after claiming "fences don't work"?

Walt

Scott.. That's Emery's socialism for ya'.
Canada has gone full Commie. No Bill of Rights to speak of.

Scott O

Walt - I have friends in Canada and I follow the events re citizens rights there. Especially the Mark Stein court suits and Jordan Peterson and his travails. It's a mixed bag. A lot of what they do there is astonishingly primitive as to civil rights and yet once in a while there is a glimmer of hope. Canada, overall - strikes me as a very polite and well behaved bunch of proles that are treated pretty well until they get independent ideas. Then the govt puts the hammer down and you had better be ready to put up an expensive defense or just knuckle under.
There are a lot of very conservative Canucks. And a majority of either leftists or people who are just too 'polite' to offer resistance to the leftys.

Walt

Scott, do you remember when Ann Coulter got run out of Canada?
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/sorry-ann-coulter-canadas_b_513865

Walt

Scott.. The Church pissed off the law. That was full blown retaliation. Now where have we seen that before?

Scott O

Ah, sorry I misspell, it's Steyn. Here's his latest -
"The strange figures known as Wokists currently destroying America aren't just reprises of earlier enemies. They represent something rather new. The political cult of Wokism combines the worst aspects of every political cult in history.
Whether they realize it or not, Wokists themselves combine the lunatic loyalty of the Manson family with the hollow pseudo-joy of Jonestown residents, the racism of National Socialists, the inhumanity of Mao Tse-Tung, the bratty tantrums of Veruca Salt, the nihilism of Bakunin-style anarchists, the totalitarianism of Stalin's Soviet Union, the child torture and sacrifice of the Mayans, the derangement of Heaven's Gate followers, the sadistic violence of the Jacobins, and the ruthless control-freakism of the current Chinese Communist Party.
Now add to that noxious syncretic blend the Wokist use of powerful communication technologies to shape narratives and meta-narratives, destroy opponents, and recruit new converts, and you've got yourself a thing."
Walt - Ann (and others) got ran out of all sorts of places.
By those who claim to want "inclusiveness'!
Followers of Christ were persecuted from the beginning. They were instructed to follow God and not humans. That's never gone down well with some humans.

Scott O @ 8:36 pm
Steyn sums it up pretty good. I am still running on Yury Bezmenov‘s words. The Left has been programmed to act to certain stimuli with....well, Steyn laid it out with his “The political cult of Wokism combines the worst aspects of every political cult in history”.

No amount of evidence, videos, data, or what they see with their own eyeballs can persuade or dissuade them. The are trapped in a trap they cannot break free of. It’s irreversible. The change of the perception of reality is complete. Operation Active Measures is a nice way of putting Ideological Subversion. Cultural Revolution leads to the Khmer Rouge, but they are incapable of seeing that. They’ve been programmed to act to certain stimuli in a very specific way.

‘Out, You Nazis!’: Viral Video Shows Pastor Kicking Out Officers From Church Easter Weekend

Get out!” Pawlowski yells, referring to the officials as “Nazis” and the “Gestapo,” the secret police of Nazi Germany. “Immediately get out of this property! I don’t want to hear anything! … Until you get a warrant, out! Immediately go out and don’t come back!”

“And don’t come back without a warrant!” he again warned, as the officials left his church. “Do not come back without a warrant, you understand that? You’re not welcome here. Nazis are not welcomed here. Gestapo is not welcomed here. Do not come back, you Nazi psychopaths.”

I know everyone (except Emery) is aware of United's promise: (besides 'please don't burn our facilities')
"Over the next decade, United will train 5,000 pilots who will be guaranteed a job with United, after they complete the requirements of the Aviate program – and our plan is for half of them to be women and people of color."
Yes - after they 'complete the requirements' and our 'plan' is for 1/2 of them..."
blah, blah, blah...
At least the commies wouldn't commit to anything more than half of that. In a decade all the major brass at United that pushed that BS will be retired or at another job.
What a coincidence!
There's a reason folks think blacks aren't too swift in the thinker-box.
The majority of them (along with white leftys) buy into this bull shit with all they own.
Ever hear of "being sold down the river"?
This isn't politics, it's just folks that think vs idiots.

One group that you left out was the Turks of 1915, and their compassion for those rich, Christian, Armenians. Shame on you.

Here Emery,, Tell us how Biden will do in the polls here.
https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2021/04/08/study-biden-tax-hikes-will-cost-1-million-jobs-in-first-two-years/
"President Biden’s tax hike plan would cost the American economy one million lost jobs in the first two years, according to a study from the National Association of Manufacturers."
Or here?
https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2021/04/08/jobless-claims-unexpectedly-jump-to-744000-much-worse-than-expected/
"New weekly jobless claims rose to 744,000 for the week that ended April 3rd, the Department of Labor said Thursday.

Economists had forecast a decline to 680,000 from the previous week’s 719,000. This is the second consecutive week in which initial jobless claims moved up in contradiction to expectations. The upper end of the range of forecasts in the Econoday survey was 705,000.
Jobless claims can be volatile week to week so economists like to look at the four-week average. This rose by 2,500 to 723,750."

I'm sure you have a real good excuse.

Remember... YOU voted for this. (it's not like we didn't tell you so..... OVER and OVER and.....)

Question for liberals: does a just society require that everything be apportioned by quotas reflecting the relative racial and ethnic populations of the country? It’s worked so well for Lebanon, I can’t imagine how it could go wrong here.

Yup the woken would cancel MLK were he alive -

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned a just and equitable America, in which citizens treated each other as persons rather than as carriers of an indelible racial imprint. Today, the progressive left has bet against King’s vision… King himself would be called out and targeted for “anti-bias” reeducation if he were alive today.

Yeah Walt it's not going to be an easy fix to repair the trashed economy that Trump left. Why is it it's always the Republicans that crash the economy and the Dems that pull us out? It took Bush two terms to wreck the ship after Clinton left us with a pretty near balanced budget but it only took one term for Trump. No wonder he was tossed out after one term along with the Repub Senate and House.

Bill Tozer

Sure thing Emery,, do tell us how that's working out.
Massive job losses on "day one". Illegals flooding over the border on day two. Proposed tax hikes on day three. Fuel costs up 70% on day four.

Hmmm. Reminds me of the Jimmy Carter jobs program. About 20 years ago I was mocking how one state. A lady at the coffee table remarked that she was in that program in Texas when she was younger. Really? Never met anyone who when through the various government jobs programs from the Green Jobs training (solar panel installers) during the Great Recession and Joe Biden’s Spring Recovery Tour with all the new normal and green sprouts in shallow soil baking in the summer sun. Heard about a guy who works at some wrecking yard and when he flattened cars for the Cash for Clunkers program, he was doing a ‘green job’ that Obama created, lol.

Anyway, I asked the lady if she got a job after going through that long training program under Jimmy. She said, “No, and it was a big waste.”

Walt

Not playing your game Emery, Tough titty.
So just where is your Dear Leader's recovery Emery?
How is that going to happen with massive new taxes with no one working? DO explain that.
Still not one job created to stem the losses Emery,, babysitters down on the border don't count..
You still have yet to explain where all the new illegals will be employed.. (Well,,, in N.Y. the illegals get big bucks, while the homeless VETS on the street get f*cked by the OH so caring Proggys.

Here... take a real good whiff.
"Buttigieg then attempted to spin the projected number of jobs created by saying that there would be over 2 million more jobs created with the "infrastructure" plan than if there wasn't a plan."

Bill Tozer

Opps @ 8:33 pm. I deleted the wrong sentence plus in editing. I am such a worm and all the song and dance.

I meant to convey that about 20 years ago I was in a friendly coffee shop and shooting the breeze with others. To point out just how obscene gov’t waste is, I was mocking Jimmy Carter’s job training program (forget it’s name) that spent something like 26 million dollars to train workers and only 7 or 11 folks found gainful employment in one region of the country.. A lady there responded that she went through that program and agreed it was a big waste and no, she did not find employment after the long training.

So, It seems that Biden’s $660,000 for each job created is par for the course.

MAGA CULPA.

Crimes are an illusion. If some entity poisons the land or water of others did they commit a crime? If yes, why aren't energy industry, biotech, CAFO's, etc. ever held accountable. But if some poor smuck robs someone of $20 they are sent to jail. It was a crime to help slaves escape from the South. It was a crime to smoke or deal cannabis in California not that long ago.

What defines a crime? Who creates the laws? Whose interests are laws created?

@ 10:58 am: she’s with her people!

‘Twitter Suppresses Tweet About BLM Founder Buying $1.4 Million Home In Mostly White Neighborhood’

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors purchased a $1.4 million home last month in Topanga Canyon, a secluded area of Los Angeles whose population is reportedly less than 2 percent black. The self-described Marxist is now facing criticism for the extravagant purchase, including from Jason Whitlock, an African-American sports journalist.

Whitlock tweeted about the controversy last week, writing, “Black Lives Matter Founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!” He added a link to the story on the celebrity property blog The Dirt. Twitter quickly deleted his post and locked his account for “violating our rules against posting private information.”
