Democrat shovel-ready jobs

It’s not unusual for politicians, particularly Democrats, to use the phrase “shovel-ready jobs” when discussing government job programs. When people hear this, they usually think construction or infrastructure work. But Democrats mean something else. In 2022, “shovel-ready jobs,” mean race-hustlers, sex-obsessed teachers, and diversity and inclusion consultants. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a diversity and inclusion professional or search job listings without finding businesses all over American who need to build up their d&i team. They’re shovel-ready because every Democrat stimulus or spending package always include money set aside to contract with these people to teach…

Boomer control

Is anyone surprised that the Baby Boomer generation will cling to their control, and their desire to control others, until their very last breath? Control of everything and everyone is what they’ve sought their entire lives. Why would they suddenly stop? Their inability to retire, take a vacation, and leave it to the next generation is utterly predictable, once you figure out that everything they’ve tried to do in society has been about planning and controlling the masses while they look down on it all from their ivory towers. Boomers are the only generation in our nation’s history that…

Just what do liberals think blacks can do on their own?

What are liberals saying about black people when they say (not in so many words) that they couldn’t possibly be conservative? Or if they are conservative, it’s because they’re being used or duped, and it couldn’t possibly be because they concluded on their own that the philosophy aligns with their own? Aren’t they really saying that their skin color determines their ideology and personal philosophy? Aren’t they really saying that black conservatives are an affront to “normal” blacks? Isn’t it kind of like saying that black conservatives are almost genetic mistakes? Isn’t the presumption that political philosophy isn’t determined…

The one way leftists take responsibility

Masks are the new bumper stickers. Just like liberals love to adorn their vehicles with Obama, Hillary, or Biden bumper stickers, or stickers with their favorite thoughtless slogans, now they love to self-identify by wearing masks when all around them have left them behind. I went to two grocery stores in the last two days, and even with the mask mandates lifted in Seattle (finally!), the stores were still full of people wearing their masks. Liberals don’t take responsibility for much, but at least they will reliably self-identify when it’s time to figure out who’s fault it is.

Coercion or poor design?

This morning, at the Orlando airport, I was given a quick survey after logging into and using the airport wifi. The survey was about COVID and my concerns about it during my airport experience. I’m not sure if this would qualify as a government survey (it does seem to be written to apply to all airports), but the questions were either very poorly designed, or they were searching for a specific outcome, because they assumed I had COVID concerns. In this first question, they ask me how I think the airport should prioritize their COVID mitigation strategies: The question…

The Republican brand problem

How do you know the Republican Party has a brand problem? Because after three days of speaking to conservatives at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, nearly every one of them, when talking about the Republicans, made a point of clarifying that they are not Republicans, but they are conservatives (unless they said “libertarians”). It’s one thing if conservatives don’t go out of their way to correct people who refer to them as Republicans. But when conservatives go out of their way, unsolicited, to make sure you know they are not Republicans, than the Party has a serious brand…

Life experts

Today at CPAC, I was fortunate to catch John James, a congressional candidate from Michigan. He opened by telling a story about when he was in the Army and was called upon to provide air support for some trapped soldiers. He made the specific point that because of his expertise, he was able to quickly diagnose their location and provide the needed support that saved their lives. His point is one that Republican Party makes all too infrequently, if at all: Democrats continue to tell us to put all of our trust in “experts,” yet continue to insist career…

Biden is not the target

Today at CPAC, I watched Ron DeSantis give an amazing speech. I’d never seen him speak in person, and I was pretty excited to see him live up to expectations and cement the idea that he’s who we need in 2024. However, I’m going to nitpick something I heard him say that I’ve heard too many other conservatives say at this same convention and for the last year: Joe Biden is not target, socialism is the target. Joe Biden is not running things. What’s happening right now are not Joe Biden’s ideas. He didn’t enter the election with any…

One of the great conservative conundrums

Control is at the bedrock of socialism. It’s the foundation of the Democrat Party and those who consider themselves “liberals” or “leftists.” Privacy and freedom are core elements of conservatism. The desire to be left alone to pursue happiness so long as you don’t interfere with others is what the conservative philosophy is all about. The idea that freedom comes from a higher power, and it can’t be given or taken away by government. So, by their very nature, Democrats, in their desire to control, have to prey on others. They necessarily have to get into everyone’s business to…

Sharing your conversation with the world… at 7am

I’m in a hotel, and outside of my room I hear someone talking. At first, I think they’re walking by, so I pay it no mind. But then it just persists, getting louder and softer, almost like someone is running by my door having a conversation. It was 7am, and I was already up. But I went out to look at who was talking in the hallway. When I opened my door, I saw guy talking loudly on the phone, pacing around the hallway. Apparently, it never occurred to this guy that no one on the floor wanted to…
