Congratulations!

Do you support abortion on demand during all nine months of pregnancy, or even after birth if a baby is so fortunate as to survive an abortion procedure? Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

Do you love the river of human misery that flows across our southern border? The sex trafficking, drugs, and potential terrorists? Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

You believe it’s no big thing, and nothing bad could possibly happen (it’s transphobic to even suggest otherwise!), for men to share locker rooms and restrooms with women and girls. Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

Are you a closet Anti-Semite, yearning to be free? Do you support the BDS Movement? Is “Cherchez la Juive” your guiding principle? Are the terrorists lobbing bombs from Gaza into Israel the real victims?¬†Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

Do you prefer to pay more, rather than less, for fuel for your car? How about to heat your home? Higher energy costs are going to save the planet, right? Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

Are you going to forego having children because their lives will suck anyway because of global warming? Assuming the world hasn’t ended in 2031? Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

Do you feel the Bern? Socialism is, like, awesome, right? They just did it wrong in Venezuela! Congratulations! Today’s Democrat Party wants you!

Congratulations! You support the most extreme positions in U.S. politics today and the Democrat Party already owns you!

Who’s Dumber Than A Box Of Rocks?

I frequently argue with a group of politically-minded friends over which Senator is dumber: Patty Murray (D-WA) or Barbara Boxer (D-CA). Opening the competition up to House members adds Hank Johnson to the mix and perennial favorite, Maxine Waters. Waters brings not only her “elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top floor” intellect, but also a profound inability to avoid saying what’s really on her mind.

Which, if you think about it, is really a plus for freedom lovers everywhere. As long as they keep her far, far away from any national security secrets.

Can anyone tell me who the disgusted gentleman seated to Waters’ right is? Or the blonde woman on his right? She can hardly keep from laughing out loud.

The Twisted Thinking Of The Left

Just how twisted is this column from the U.K.?

Tomorrow, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions will announce a new “contract” with the poor. Those receiving the miniscule and dwindling stipend that the government grants anyone without means to support themselves in these straitened times may be required to toil for the state, for free, or face being shoved off benefits.

You spotted the twisted bit, right? That would be the bit where the author talks about receiving cash benefits in return for work as being working for free.

You would normally think this would be enough crazy talk for one column, but there’s more!

We keep being told that relentless work is good for us. The expectation that all people “of working age” should spend 45 hours a week performing pointless tasks in small cubicles for someone else’s profit while cramming unpaid housework and childcare into the remaining time is only a very recent function of late capitalism, but conservative myopia would have us believe that this cruel and unusual process is somehow normal.

Actually, I’d say that the expectation is for people to take care of themselves; it’s up to them to fit themselves for something they find tolerable or maybe even – gasp! – enjoyable. I think that concept of caring for yourself and your family has been around for “quite some time.” And if people aren’t equipped for jobs that they find at least somewhat meaningful, they should be able to find some small satisfaction in not needing a handout from the government. And, you know, having to work for free in exchange for money.
