How Sweet to Be a Democrat

Original Article

How sweet to be a Democrat. They seem to think it's game to engage in despicable acts and dare anyone to hold them accountable. No matter how bold and in your face the act, no matter how crazy the statement or preposterous the proposal (think Green New Deal), they know they will not be seriously questioned or held to account, let alone disciplined. This doesn't stop them from screaming bloody murder when Republicans engage in the exact same behavior, nor from demanding that the harshest punishments be meted out. In fact, this, too, is part of the game, and it gives them great — and perverse — pleasure.

If you are looking for either the democRATs or the Republicans to fix your problems, you are in trouble! They can’t, won’t and probably shouldn’t...unless it pertains to National Security better that they just stay out it! I read once it takes $5,000 in tax dollars to get $1.00 back to a poor person. I think that number was way too low! Probably like $2.5 million per $1.00 today...

Mask-wearing is becoming increasingly politicized.California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, announced Thursday that mask-wearing is compulsory in most public settings, making California the 11th state to mandate people to wear masks.

He told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday that Americans who wear masks are signaling disapproval of him.

When you’re out having drinks with friends, are your personal conversations about politics private? Should they be? According to at least one New England restaurant, the answer is no. And thus far, advocates for #BlackLivesMatter and other progressive political causes agree. Since the beginning of the protests following George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, what critics call “cancel culture” has been operating overtime. The premise of “cancel culture” is that people should be denied access to media platforms or publicly shamed into apologizing for expressing opinions unpopular with progressive activists.
