Just a few headlines today.
Goldman-Sachs, a company of exceptionally greedy progressive rent-seekers, says that the world is drowning in debt. Well, duh. The progressives claim that the USA can continue to rack up debt indefinitely because the dollar is a reserve currency, and deficits don’t matter, and we should actually be borrowing and spending a lot more than we already do. Because everybody knows that having an exploding Government on top of a shrinking private sector is totes sustainable.
The Senate Republicans under Mitch McConnell continued enacting and empowering the Obama Agenda by passing the president’s “Trade Authority,” i.e. the ability for Obama to conduct trade negotiations under total secrecy with no transparency and Congress gets to vote the final secret trade pact up or down without amendments. Call it “Obamatrade.” The Chamber of Commerce wants this, and promises it will create jobs and prosperity. You know, just like they said NAFTA would. How well has that worked out?
81% of Al Jazeera’s Arabic audience supports ISIS; so where is this Moderate Muslim Majority I keep hearing so much about?
Segregation is now being promoted by progressives as a Civil Right. Exhibit A: A $43,000 a year private elementary school in NYC is instituting monoracial classes. Exhibit B: Universities setting up “safe spaces” that exclude white people. The rationale is that racially homogenous environments are better for black and brown children, who just can’t compete with their lighter skinned peers. (When leftists do it, it’s not racism.)
Disinhibited by the company of racially different peers, the children would, the school hoped, feel free to raise questions and make observations that in mixed company might be considered impolite. The bigger goal was to initiate a cultural upheaval, one that would finally give students of color a sense of equal ownership in the community
Criminals are running amok in Baltimore after the mayor told them to them to stand down and give those who want to destroy space to destroy and an overzealous state’s attorney indicted six others because a drug dealer died in their custody. But remember… the really, REALLY important lesson here is not to call violent criminals thugs because it’s racist; Rachel Maddow said so.
So… runaway debt, useless Republicans, racial division, and criminals running amok because corrupt big city Democrats don’t dare offend the mob. Pretty much sums up Obama’s America, doesn’t it?
