Would You Like Fries With That?

I was listening to Meet the Repressed which is replayed on Bloomberg radio. At the beginning Upchuck Todd said that something “wreaked havoc,” except that he pronounced it “reeked havoc,” like it smells really bad. I always thought it was pronounced “reck,” not “reek,” but I see online that it is pronounced either way. But that’s not how I remember that. But what really reeks is this awful, smelly Presidential campaign. Upchuck interviewed Sen. Bernie Sanders, who again called for raising the minimum wage to $15/hour. But Bernie, what if some working families still can’t make enough to pay their bills with $15/hour? So why not make it $20/per hour just to be sure? But what if a working family with three kids still can’t make ends meet at $20/hour? Why not $25? And regarding his comments on the “institutional racism” in America mainly with police against black people, he said that the poverty level is too high within minorities, and that’s the main problem here. Well, when you keep raising the minimum wage and employers (of black teenaged workers) can no longer afford to pay the higher wages and so they cut those jobs, perhaps that’s a good explanation for the financial difficulties among minorities and lack of jobs available especially in the cities? I don’t think that Bernie Sanders is related to Col. Sanders, or Walt Sanders, but he could be related to Larry Sanders, as Bernie does provide us with a lot of comedy.

Obama says there aren’t enough gun laws. Each year there are more and more gun laws, but we seem to have more gun-related violence, and more of those mass shootings in which the shooter obtained guns legally and by passing background checks. In Obama’s hometown of Chicago they have had very strict gun laws, yet there are new gun-related deaths just about every day, or so it seems. The “progressive” activists and their followers live in a fantasy world in which criminals will actually obey laws restricting guns while they violate laws against assault, rape, robbery and murder. But like most pols, Obama craves power, and disarming innocent people while seizing more power for the government satisfies these predator pols’ lust for more power. He obviously doesn’t want the honest, innocent civilian to have the means to protect oneself. The Democrats and progressives and leftists’ minions and dupes just can’t seem to understand common sense. At the same time, the Republicans talk a good game on the people’s “right” to self-defense, but in the end they love power, too. When there is civil unrest, the Republicans and 2nd Amendment conservatives will want to seize the guns from the civilians and will want only government police and military to have weapons. That’s the way politicians are.

In fact, we now have a totalitarian system in which the schools are now assessing every little kid’s “threat level” from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Can you believe this? So if a little 5-year-old is acting as little 5-year-olds do, he will get a “pre-crime” assessment which will hang with him for the rest of his life. In other education news, in Iowa the government schools had an anti-bullying conference for middle school LGBT students. Among some of the lectures, according to the Daily Caller, they heard “how to pleasure their gay partners,” “how to sew fake testicles into their underwear in order to pass themselves off as boys,” and “how pleasurable it is for gay couples to eat each other’s behinds and how using flavored oils can improve the taste.” The featured speaker was a drag performer who “encouraged attendees to vandalize the property of critics.” (What a shock! That at a freak show they would encourage violence, I’m shocked!) So, until the federal Department of Education began in 1980, the U.S. usually ranked #1 in education compared to other countries, but since then America has steadily declined in educational rankings. And these newest stories are probably indicators of that continuing trend.
