Elizabeth Warren Shows Her Ignorance

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 11/3/2019 4:26:27 AM

Elizabeth Warren is the current favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination, but one wonders how voters will react when they learn about her bizarrely radical agenda. Warren openly advocates making all private health insurance–the kind that a large majority of Americans have–illegal. She hasn’t begun to think through the implications of this extreme proposal, but when voters begin to contemplate it, my guess they will vote against her, enthusiastically. Yesterday Warren was asked what would become of all those people who are now employed in the health insurance industry. Her answer shows her ignorance of insurance, as well as of the economy in general:

It'll be either Biden or Warren running against Trump. He will make short work of either one-all he has to do is give people the FACTS about what either opponents' agendas truly means for the country. And also to take credit for all the things he has accomplished in office despite the constant and incessant distraction & nuisance campaign being run against him. Trump will win re-election easily-the thing Repubs need to work on is flipping House & Senate seats. I, for one, cannot wait for the Repubs to regain majority status in the House and kick every single one of the filthy lying Dems running committees out of power. Bye Bye Nadler, Pelosi, Schiff, Waters, etc. And the Squad....it will be music to my ears to hear them wailing about how they lost because the Repubs stole their seats. I want to see Taco Barbie get a job in a call center trying to sell electric roof panels. I want to see Tlaib and Omar atone for their anti-semitisim. Nov 2020 can't come soon enough.

Something that should be apparent to every half-awake voter is that none of these Democrats has every worked in the real world private sector. To the best of my knowledge not a single one has ever run a business or held a position in which they were actually accountable for anything. And their colossal ignorance certainly shows. Unfortunately, almost half the country is right there in the dark with them.

Sorry to disappoint, the other types of insurance out there are very much different. In addition, they could not suck in two million new employees. They already have as many as they need. So, those two million are toast. They may be well educated but, have no useful skills other than what they have been trained for.

I'm afraid that if too many voters think like #3, they may not bother to vote! His reelection is not a sure thing. Voter apathy has led to disasters at the polls many times, the worst being in 1948, when Thomas Dewey was a sure thing, only to let a low voter turnout elect Harry Truman instead. It could happen again if we take things for granted. Get out there and vote! The democrats are sure to.

Fauxcahontas' problem is that she's just another dime-a-dozen pinheaded Ivy League professor who sits in her ivory tower dreaming up theories and hypotheses (all of them fantasies) but has no real world experience and zero common sense. Her insurance jobs comment is on par with Hilary's declaration that she had a kind, caring, compassionate welfare program for all the coal miners she was going to put in the unemployment line, and we all know how well that worked out for her.

These recent comments from Faux-ca-haunt-us show that she speaks with forked tongue and rocks in the head. If 200,000 people work selling health insurance right now, are there 200,000 open positions to sell home insurance or car insurance? News to me as well as to the industry. Most states have totally different licensing requirements so it's not like working on an assembly line tightening bolts or instead of growing corn, this year you plant potatoes. Completely different skill sets. How'd that "job transition" work out for all the gas lamp workers when electricity came in? Or the carriage workers and horse tenders when Ford caught on? And those transitions came over decades while she's talking complete stop. Stupid fool.

Warren's face should appear next to the definition of the 'Peter Principle'. If she had her way, health care would take on all the efficiency and efficacy of the VA. Trying to control costs would eventually require children to be forced into the medical professions (I always wondered why those behind the iron curtain in the 60's and 70's had to force people into professions...). And, IF her insane idea that the auto, life and home insurance field could absorb those who lose their jobs in the private medical insurance field... get ready for rates to double for your auto, home and life insurance. Warren makes Al Gore look smart. and we all know that Gore cannot reason his way out of a soaking wet discount paper lunch bag.

And she gets away with it. Why, because 90% of democratic voters are freakin illiterates. Look at all of these college morons who think they are smart because they go to college. Yea right.. These idiots never had a real job, never paid taxes and never supported anything but their drug habits. They may be book smart but they are not street smart. Most of the other democratic voters are those living off of the taxpayers dime. Those who never work but just sit home with their hands out taking every freebie they can get. They'll vote for anything a democrat who promises not to take any of their free benefits away. These democratic voters have been indoctrinated and brain washed into the democratic plantation since grade school. Start'em young and keep'em dumb and you'll have their vote forever. That's the democratic agenda. Got it yet...

No one ever convinced me Obama was as brilliant as the media touted and I'm still waiting. The same goes for Princess Grey Beaver all noise and no sense. It's seems Princess Grey Beaver's been sipping too much fire water in her kitchen again. I watched parts of that horrible convention and when Princess Grey Beaver can out I thought she looked like she took 'dress down Friday' to the other six days of the week. She looked like the school teacher I hated in elementary school. It doesn't take much to fool the idiots on the left. I hope Warren is the winner and nominee just to hear President Trump at his rallies talk about her. I don't watch many debates because they are rigged to favor the left but I'll watch that one.

I looked it up. There are only 80 trillion dollars in the world in bank accounts and hard currency, which is what we pay taxes in. Elizabeth Warren proposes to spend 55 trillion on healthcare. Add the new green deal, open borders and healthcare for illegals, plus modest cost overruns and the 55 could easily balloon to 80. Democrats say that the only reason socialism hasn't worked so far is because it was not implemented by the right person. Maybe Elizabeth Warren really is different from every other socialist in her methods. After all, none of the others ever tried spending literally every last cent in the world to make it work.

Having worked with the intricacies of health care insurance software since the 1980s I can attest that it takes years to become proficient in the details. One of the main reasons that Obamacare failed was that the troop of chimps that threw it together didn't know their asses from their elbows concerning health care, insurance or computer systems. With the fake squaw we would go through the same clustercluck again. Pelosi famously said that we would have to pass it to know what was in it. After passage even the people who designed it didn't know what was in it.

Let's look at all the politically connected groups that would be banned from having private insurance. Large and small businesses which have offered as a perk to attract and keep employees. Unions, large and small, including Government employees. And of course Politicians of every stripe. Now let's think of how much would get accomplished in the U.S. if Health-Care devolves into something resembling the DMV. Put this message out and the Cherokee Princess ( a Native-American derogatory term used to describe white women who claim to be part Native -American) will be forced to slink away.

It's real simple,...Warren is just totally nuts and not attached to any kind of reality that I'm aware of. How long has she been indulged and tolerated? Why are so called "Liberals" and/or "Progressives" so motivated to tell you, me, us how to live and what to do with our lives and money? This woman is just bizarre. Clinical insane as far as I'm concerned. Not even remotely attached to reality. This is the biggest conflict in my lifetime, the battle between reality and fantasy. The Dims are all on the side of naive, stupid and enforced oppressive fantasy.

She never even had a paper route or lemonade stand, unless she has but left it off her impressive resume. And now she feels qualified to takeover the healthcare for 300 million people.

It is painful to take issue with my blessed friend Peggy Noonan, and also painful to read both that she has effectively joined the disreputable impeachers of Donald Trump and has invoked a disingenuous argument in support of that position. Writing in the Wall Street Journal on November 2, she asserted that it is clear President Trump used his office to ask the president of Ukraine to destroy Joe Biden politically and that he used U.S. financial assistance to Ukraine as an incentive, and the withholding of it as a threat to incite such activity. And she wrote that the only remaining argument is whether that constitutes an article of impeachment

Appearing on Bill Maher's Real Time on HBO Friday night, Farrow said that Clinton was "credibly accused of rape" by Broaddrick, who claimed in 1999 that Clinton raped her in a motel room in Arkansas in 1978. Clinton was the state attorney general at the time.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — BamaCentral has learned that the University of Alabama is making preparations for President Donald Trump to attend the LSU game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday. Numerous sources have confirmed his expected visit.

The high-profile game was already attracting a lot of attention, including ESPN's pregame show "College Gameday." However, the stage had to be moved due to security concerns, from the Walk of Champions just outside the stadium to near Denny Chimes on the Quad.

The move would leave the US as the only country outside the accord, a decision President Trump promised early in his term to unfetter America’s domestic oil, gas and coal industries. “What we won’t do is punish the American people while enriching foreign polluters,” Trump said at a shale gas industry conference in Pennsylvania on Oct. 23, referring to his planned withdrawal from the agreement.

California Sen. Kamala Harris' bid for the Democratic presidential nomination is imploding even before President Trump could think up an insulting nickname for her. Once regarded as the Democrats' best hope to take down Trump, Harris has seen her polls collapse, her donations tumble, and her campaign in shambles. She claims her woes show that the country is just "not ready for a woman of color" to be president. This is rot. What the country is not ready for is another cynical and self-serving bully-in-chief who, in her case, is masquerading as a progressive.

The second is not reining in the so-called Squad, or the four female freshmen Democrats whose extreme progressive voices have helped push the Democrat party to the left, alienating much of the country.

Trump has repeatedly said the call was "perfect," or, as he described it on Sunday, "perfecto." His defenders, or most of them, have declined to adopt that characterization. But importantly, the president, and others as well, have also pointed to the circumstances of the Trump-Zelensky conversation as evidence that Trump had no intent to commit any sort of offense,
