A Most Remarkable Weekend

A remarkable thing happened over the weekend; Democrats rediscovered their concern about the national debt, state’s rights, and voter fraud; and they have come around to believe that a Bible-based Theocracy would be a good thing.

The same Democrats who had no problem helping Barack Obama double the national debt to a mind-blowing $20 Trillion have attacked the Republican Senate’s limpwrist “tax reform” bill claiming it will add $1.5 Trillion to the national debt over ten years.

$1.5 Trillion represents less than 3% of Government spending over the next ten years. If that’s a problem, then, by all means, cut spending by 3%.

Also, progressives are pointing to the Bible and insisting that it commands people to support a Government that taxes heavily and spends profligately.

Democrats are also  suddenly hollering about “state’s rights” because Congress is looking to make concealed carry licenses valid across state lines; like driver’s licenses. (And, yes, most states require training and a background check before a concealed carry license is issued.) The Democrats have suddenly taken a position analogous to claiming Rosa Parks only had the right to sit in the front of the bus while she was in Alabama.

And, if I may circle back to the tax bill, if California leftists don’t want the tax cuts, then they can just do what they did with immigration law; make up their own rules, and continue to collect taxes at the old rate. Because “states’ rights.”

And, after denying for years that voter fraud exists, Progressive leftists are suddenly up in arms about alleged voter fraud.

A local Alabama chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) {Why do they still get to say ‘colored people?’ – Ed.} is alleging voter fraud in a nonpartisan city council race despite the organization’s national president claiming that voter fraud is a “myth.” Meanwhile, a progressive candidate in Minneapolis, Minn., who was endorsed by the local chapter of a national group linked to the Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) movement, is also accusing a fellow progressive opponent of voter fraud.

Like I said, it was a most remarkable weekend.

  1. What’s a Progressive to do? Their icons are falling right and left by being exposed as abusive personalities who use sex as their favorite cudgel.

    They are looking for a messianic messenger to stir up the old “I have a dream” serum.

    They have so divided people and so trashed the pride and spirit of the people that their “base” is splintered and even shattered.

    They have used the Constitution as a suggestion to be diverted from and now they think they want to be more lawful and orderly.

    Now they have to herd cats. They are an amalgamation of discontents and malingerers and snake oil salesmen and addicts. How to get them back into the big tent is going to be quite a feat.

    The globalist elite are worried sick that they may lose their puppet government. The Congress is full of geriatric Democrats and the Democrat governors are in sort supply and mostly political hacks at best.

    So, from where will their sainted leader and uniter arise?

  2. I would like to hear how CCP and Cas will account for these new turnarounds. I realize many Republicans also do and say things that are opposite to each other, but the DNC is obviously becoming professionals at perpetuating hypocrisy, are they not? How can these situations get spun so that they come out looking like the good guy for the Constitution, states’ rights, and voter fraud? All things they have been opposite on consistently before?

  3. When progressive leftists wonder why conservatarians are bent on keeping our “weapons of war,” it’s partly because there are progressive leftists like these people:

  4. You forgot the hysterical “killing the children” wailing. Or the “you don’t want public roads?” analysis.

    Interesting how so many people believe that *everything* the gov’t does: from dropping bombs on Yemen to spending $200K to sign up one person to O-Care in SD is a crucial expenditure and that all this spending is as efficient as possible, appropriate, and comes with no downside.

  5. Hi TADFORD,
    I want you to understand this point–I am not against deficits; they can be a necessary trade-off in a number of instances. What Democratic Party politicians say is of little interest to me on these topics. I did say this back here. Of course, it is always good fun to watch deficit hawks squirm when their own side is guilty of what they have castigated the other side for, for years.

    What I object to in this case is not the deficits but the redistribution of resources towards the richest members of society AND that this policy will most likely lead to a recession. Both of these possible outcomes are highly undesirable in my view. I critiqued this tax cut and watched in amusement as people here pretzeled themselves to avoid the challenge of defending this tax cut legislation. If folks here can’t defend what is on offer from their own side to a simple critique, that is pretty weak sauce, in my opinion. The tax legislation is an hammer in search of a nail. That is my point.

    I would be interested in your views on the subject.

  6. Hi TADFORD,

    Politics per usual? (btw, this is not an endorsement)

    Cheers,
    CCP
