Obama Hijacks Funeral Service to Push the Democrat Left Agenda

Obama chose the occasion of a Police memorial service to call the cops racist, push for more Government spending, and… oh, yeah… push gun control.

The Westboro Baptists just called to say, “Dude, it’s a funeral. Inappropes!”

Community Activist: “Abolish the police.”

We need to abolish the police, period. Demilitarize the police, disarm the police, and we need to come up with community solutions for transformative justice.” — Jessica Disu, community activist

“Sounds good to me” – Every urban thug.

You should really treat yourself to the video so you can see the smug look of simultaneous self-righteousness and clueless vacuity as she makes her proclamation.

What do you suppose she means by “community solutions for transformative justice?”

Nothing. She means nothing by it. She just likes the sound of the words as they dribble out of her pie hole.

You know who else thought they were a “community solution for transformative justice?” The KKK.

Jeb Bush May Have Learned Something

Jeb Bush was interviewed yesterday and actually might just have learned something from the experience of being beaten by a Tang-Haired Angry Clown.

NICOLLE WALLACE: Did we — I mean, it can’t all be on Trump. Our voters wanted something else. Did we stop talking to them? Did we stop understanding them?

JEB BUSH: They’re– the difference is– no, I don’t think so. I think the difference is people don’t believe anything anybody says anymore.

Well, yeah, because politicians have been promising to secure the border for 30 years, and done nothing. Because politicians claim trade deals are always good for America, yet ever since NAFTA and normalization of trade with China, middle class incomes have either stagnated or declined. Because politicians promise to do to the will of the people, but instead enact the will of the cronies and interest groups.

The voters have internalized that politicians are lying to them. They’re willing to take a chance that an outsider — even a shifty con-man — might not be lying to them. At least, not about everything.

Quibbling with Sowell

Ace quotes Thomas Sowell:

It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a “socialist.” He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism. What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.

Thus the Obama administration can arbitrarily force insurance companies to cover the children of their customers until the children are 26 years old. Obviously, this creates favourable publicity for President Obama. But if this and other government edicts cause insurance premiums to rise, then that is something that can be blamed on the “greed” of the insurance companies. The same principle, or lack of principle, applies to many other privately owned businesses. It is a very successful political ploy that can be adapted to all sorts of situations.

I would quibble that what Obama favors is a kind of Socialism, just that he achieves it through regulation rather than confiscation. But the end result is the same… a planned, political economy where political operatives make decisions according to their own prerogatives rather than letting people make decisions for themselves. The hugely expensive politically-driven push to wind and solar power that results in consumers paying more for energy is one example, and the wretched and unpalatable school lunches dictated by the whims of the president’s wife are another. Then there is, of course, Obamacare where the Government decides men should have to pay for women’s gynecological services and the mentally healthy must pay for the genital mutilation of transgendered people because these are voting blocs for the ruling political coalition. Britain’s NHS has politicized and bureaucratized the practice of medicine; Obamacare has achieved the same result with the thin veneer that private bureaucrats, rather than Government ones, administer the program.

If all a company’s decisions are dictated by the Government, the company is de facto socialized. And when the details of running the economy are worked out between corrupt politicians and corrupt businessmen, Obama has successfully nationalized the Chicago style of Government.
