Clearly written and worth pondering.  It gets really interesting after the opening paragraph quoted below.

The Seven Dumbest Things Democrats Demand You Believe

by Scott McKay / July 29, 2019, 11:59 PM

 

We just concluded one of the strangest, and most illuminating, weeks in the history of American politics — a week in which the Democrat Party, through its majority control of the U.S. House of Representatives, exposed itself as not just driven by out-of-the-mainstream anti-American and anti-civilization ideologues but by radicals lacking the political skill to carry a message even with the aid of a slavish mainstream media.

Good read.  I liked this part particularly.

 

“Another trope that ought to have been put to bed by now is the idea that socialism is a workable plan that simply has not been implemented properly. How many times must we hear this amid the horrors of the USSR, China, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Cuba, and Venezuela, among others? Every time it’s the same story: communist dictators are the good guys seeking to liberate the people from the oppression of the exploitative capitalist system, and when the people being liberated scramble for the border at their first opportunity, their plight is minimized or ignored. When the brain-drain reaches critical mass and the new system begins to collapse, America — and particularly evil American corporations, whichever Republican president can be found, or the CIA — is primarily to blame.

Once the system collapses fully, we are presented with the implementers of the socialism system as the scapegoats, notwithstanding the fact today’s scapegoats are yesterday’s superstars. When someone not a monster rises to the top of a socialist government, we are told, we will get to see the real beauty of such a system.

It never quite occurs to our leftist friends that monsters are precisely the people who do rise to the top in socialist governments.”

As somebody who grew up in a more-or-less socialist country (certainly more socialist than the US... currently) you do not want this scourge. You will never, ever, rid yourself of it if it catches on.

Absolutely.  Katya grew up under an extreme socialist economy governed by a single party communist government that controlled everything.  She has told me many times she has no desire to go back to that type of life.  This is one of the reasons the Democrats scare me, they support eliminating the electoral college, restricting free speech, getting rid of the Senate, eliminating amendments 2- through 8 except for themselves of course and pretty much just taking control of the economic capital of the US because they know better.  The fact that there are some out there that actually believe this platform is even more scary.

She probably knows more than I how socialism can turn any country into a "shithole country." Imagine your doctor working for the government. But it's free, eh? 😉

 

I recently read an article about some liberal or other demanding free university degrees for prisoners. Lovely! Now you don't ever have to worry about tuition or student debt. Just commit a crime and stick around to be arrested. Free room, board, and higher education. Idiots.

As for the guy who wants a Brazilian wax on his nether regions, instead of reacting with shock and refusing service, give the guy what he wants. I'd say well bless your heart honey you just come right this way. My guess is after one look at the wax pot and he'd be out of there.  Make sure he signs a release of liability and pays first though, because there is no way he'd be conscious after the first 30 seconds.

 

For the uninitiated let me explain the process. First, it starts with hot melted wax at a temp of 104F/40C on small sections of the "target" area. Next, 1 inch strips of cloth are placed on the hot wax making sure it's good and stuck, then, it's ripped off as fast as possible in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Now just imagine this on the family jewels.

It amazes one how women can regularly do this on their upper thighs yet still be deathly afraid of a spider.

I have fondness for the 3rd, it does not get enough respect.  :)  But seriously, all Americans should be concerned with any assault on the Constitution.

This type of waxing is a little more up close and personal, if you know what I mean.

 

Spiders are a different story.

Completely agree. I know what to expect with a waxing. Spiders are less predictable.
