The American dream is starting to look
like a creepy carnival

As someone who is not American, my prevailing image of the U.S. has been one of an enormous, extravagant carnival. Static geographically but traveling existentially, it teems with the exotic and the entertaining. Are there carnies trying to rip off naive souls? Of course. Is there a House of Horrors? Sure. But the whole is still vivid and life-affirming.This image, idealistic as it is, is under threat. Money-grubbing contractors are ramping up prices. Humorless scolds in management are closing the best rides. Below the surface, meanwhile, thieves are running rampant and the bodies of the sick and injured stud the fairground. The American carnival looks like a less fun,

The left has ruined everything. My opinion is this is a communist police state. It is not acceptable living this way. The only way to stop this intrusion of government into our lives is to reduce the size of government by 50-60%. The Republicans do not mention reducing the size of government any longer, because the big companies are paying their campaign expenses, providing them with investment tips and other favors. Don't think the primaries is a way to reduce government. The primary process is totally controlled by big money. We have little voice. Occasionally a Trump, House Freedom Caucus, and others will come along, but they are very much in the minority.

Mr. Sixsmith seems to like the sound of his own prose… Brits have never gotten over losing the interesting, brave, gutsy colonies who not only survived but prospered, even coming back to save their island from the Germans.... And have better teeth.

Former President Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden for preparing to send troops to Europe in defense of Ukraine during a rally on Saturday night, demanding instead that he send them to police America's border.Speaking in Conroe, Texas, he accused Biden of letting millions of people into the country while worrying about the security of a foreign nation.'But the most important border right now for us not Ukraine's border but America's border,' he said.'Before Joe Biden sends any troops to defend a border in Europe he should be sending troops to defend our border right here in Texas.'

Thousands packed the Montgomery County Fairgrounds hours before the doors opened for former President Donald Trump’s first Texas MAGA rally since 2019.Nearly everyone was waiting in line for something: Fried food, Trump merchandise, bathrooms or the security line to get in. The masses sporadically broke out in whoops or “Let’s go Brandon” chants. The line of cars waiting to turn into the lot stretched nearly a mile.The outfits would have looked at home at a large music festival. People wore bright colors such as American flag jumpsuits and neon cowboy hats.The crowd is mostly but not exclusively white, made up of people of all ages. Whole families walked together, hand-in-hand.

Birth rates in China are in free fall. And the all-powerful Communist Party of China seems powerless to do anything about it.The National Bureau of Statistics reported that only 10.62 million babies were born last year, down from 12.02 million in 2020, and the lowest number in recorded history. Millennials are the problem — or should I say the generations of only children spawned by the one-child policy. Many Chinese men in their twenties and early thirties seem to have simply given up on life.

By all appearances, the Democrat Party is going to be delivered a beatdown of historic proportions in the 2022 midterm elections the likes of which haven’t been seen since at least the 2010 election.Or that should be the case, at least.With the prize seemingly there for the taking, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is reportedly seeking advice from “the grandfather of House Republicans,” Newt Gingrich, who engineered the 1994 Republican Revolution with the Contract with America, taking back control of the House after a 40-year drought. From 1933 until 1995, Republicans controlled both the House and Senate for only four years.

Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris claimed this week that she “rarely, if ever” refers to three countries in Central America as the “Northern Triangle” because she respects each of their identities, despite the fact that she has repeatedly referred to the countries as the “Northern Triangle.”The Northern Triangle is a region in Central America that is comprised of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. A large number of migrants that have contributed to Democrat President Joe Biden’s border crisis have come from those countries. “Madam Vice President Harris, when you compare the three Northern Triangle countries,

One of the main tenants for a stable and law-abiding society is a judicial system that enforces laws and ensures equal justice for all.The reverse is true in progressive cities, resulting in an increase in crime. Various government organizations, even all the way up to the Department of Justice, have gone astray. Social justice warriors are now in positions in the DOJ to implement “racial justice”, which determines how to prosecute cases based on the race and/or social justice cause, not commensurate with the crimes committed.A perfect example can be seen in a murder committed by a BLM arsonist.

Former Vice President Mike Pence revealed that he has not spoken to former President Trump since last summer. He suggested that Jan. 6, 2021 marked a souring in their relationship. That day, ahead of the Capitol riot, Trump said that Pence 'didn't have the courage' to object to the election results during Congress' certification. Fox News' Jesse Waters asked Pence when the last time he spoke to Trump was on his show Thursday evening. 'You know, we talked last summer,' Pence said. 'And, you know, I've said many times, it was difficult. Jan. 6 was difficult. It was a tragic day in the life of the nation.'

Interrupting a campaign speech certainly doesn't seem like a way to get an invite into the White House, but that's exactly what a two-year-old short-haired tabby has managed to do. A green-eyed, gray and white farm cat made quite the impression on Jill Biden after jumping up on stage and interrupting her remarks during a 2020 campaign stop in her home state Pennsylvania. Now, President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden have finally welcomed Willow, after speaking of a long-promised cat, to their pet family.

Guns, guns, and more guns. These days the complexity of gun ownership in this country is just that, complex. To me, the Second Amendment is pretty straightforward. The question I have is when is it appropriate to get the gun out? When is the right time? Is it the right time to shoot a dog during a dog fight, or if a dog attacks you? A video from Oregon today shows a man who guns down his neighbors’ pitbull after it came running towards him in his front yard.

With Justice Stephen Breyer officially announcing his retirement on Thursday (a full 24 hours after the White House announced it for him), Senate Democrats will have a chance to fill a Supreme Court seat, likely before the 2022 midterm elections in November. But ever since 2017, when Senate Republicans invoked the nuclear option to confirm Supreme Court justices at a simple majority, instead of at the usual 60 votes necessary to break a filibuster, there has been procedurally little minorities can do to prevent a nomination from moving forward (the outright lies, smears, and chaos tactics Senate Democrats employed against Justice Brett Kavanaugh notwithstanding).
