We’re All Victims

America’s most famous Native American with high cheek bones is on the stump getting traction with the low information voter:

“The game is rigged, and the Republicans rigged it,”

That’s right folks. After six years of corporatizing health care, driving up premiums, increasing the cost of living, overseeing the decline of the average wage of American families, regulating the life out of the coal industry, refusing Americans the benefits of energy independence, refusing tax reform, growing the federal government, wasting trillions of dollars of tax payers money, rewarding incompetent government bureaucrats, enslaving children in under performing schools, and assisting in increasing the cost of a higher education – the Democrats are playing the victim card and blaming Republicans. I am surprised she didn’t get laughed out of the room, but I think the following quote tells us why that didn’t happen:

“She’s a rock star,”

Where have we heard that line before? These low information voters have not learned a thing, probably as a result of our failing education system, and are once again playing identity politics. Warren is a product of the Harvard faculty lounge, just like Obama, and does not have one day of practical, real life experience. She would in all reality be a far worse President than Obama if you can even imagine that, but experience, results, competence, nor even the truth have any bearing whatsoever on the POTUS candidate selection of the Democratic Party. Hillary is an incompetent liar who also has zero real world experience but she is leading the current Democratic field by a mile only because of her gender, and her womanizing husband.

It’s a sad statement on our society, our political culture and on a good portion of our fellow Americans that someone like Warren gains any credibility whatsoever outside of the far left lecture halls.

    She is monumentally stupid, plays the race card, has no actual accomplishments and is entirely Narrative…in other words, she’s perfect for the Democrat nomination…and for the conviction on the left that after President Jindal or President Walker is sworn in on January 20th, 2017, that we evil Republicans stole the election…

    The following is just a really good example of how the current Democrats operate. And an issue of which is under the radar for most people, including political junkies:

    When and if the GOP takes the Senate, there is a part of me that wants them to use the new Harry Reid “simple majority” rules of the Senate as a club to bludgeon the Democrats with. However there is another part of me that wants them to restore the honor, credibility and constitutionality of the Senate. I think the latter is more important.

      Cluster,

      I hear you, man. Democrats react to civility about the same way ISIS does, but I think restoring honor, civility and constitutionality to, not just the Senate, but government in general will be the key to a bright future.

    And yet another important reality that goes unmentioned in the media, and is certainly never brought to light by the President:

    The Treasury Department released this month figures showing that federal tax revenue exceeded $3 trillion in fiscal year 2014—the first time revenue surpassed that mark

    Keep this in mind when Democrats accuse us of not “paying our fair share”, or when they blame cuts in government funding as the source of our problems.

    DON’T EVER VOTE FOR ANOTHER DEMOCRAT AGAIN UNLESS AND UNTIL THE CURRENT LEADERSHIP IS BANISHED. THEY CAN NOT BE TRUSTED.

      If we just had increased spending at twice the official rate of inflation, Uncle Sam would probably be sitting on a hoard of cash measured in the trillions.

    Just think—if we had raised the minimum wage to $25.00 and the highest marginal tax rate to 80%, the economy would be booming right now. Pump up the faltering unions, get rid of fracking, kill off the Keystone Pipeline once and for all, get gas prices up to European levels where they belong, and we’ll be well on our way to the fundamental transformation this country needs.

    BTW, anyone else pick up on the wholly predictable right-before-the-election announcement of sudden dramatic drops in unemployment? Evidently the LIVs have never noticed the quiet “corrections” to these claims, which only show up a few weeks after the election. Predictable as climate change—-or what we call “seasons”.

      Not to mention the right-before-the-election sudden drop in the price of gasoline. In the last 90 days or so, we’ve dropped from around $3.69/gal. to (yesterday) $2.85/gal. It was reported on the news a couple days ago that 1/3 of the stations around the country were below $3. What a coincidence!

        Keeping the proletariat happy. 🙂 And distracted.

    OT, but highly relevant to our current economic situation is an article by David Stockman. I don’t often agree with David Stockman, but he absolutely nails it in the piece.

    “Never mind that the Fed has pinned the money market rate at zero for 71 months and unleashed the greatest carry trade gambling spree in recorded history; or that $3.5 trillion of debt monetization during that period has deeply deformed yields and pricing in the entire fixed-income market,” he stated.

    “No, the job of the monetary politburo is apparently to sift noise out of the in-coming data noise — even when it is a feedback loop from the Fed’s own manipulation and interventions. So the stock market rallies strenuously because an incoherent central banker starts randomly gumming about self-evident financial noise.”

    I’m reminded of the old retail displays that featured a vacuum cleaner with the suction reversed and holding a ball or balloon up in the air. I think someone is about the pull the plug.
