Do voters prefer to be lied to? Is it the fault of PC and LGBT speech codes?

Ever wonder why candidates are so afraid to tell it to you straight?  Maybe it’s because they’re afraid of the extreme reactions that being honest produces?  So in an effort to avoid those extreme reactions – and to prevent being branded an “extremist” themselves – politicians resort to bullshit.  And voters – especially the snowflake variety – suck up the bullshit and condemn anything that even smells like the truth. 

That would explain the two years of non-stop ANTIFA inspired rants by candidates like Obama bureaucrat Mikie Sherrill, Obama bureaucrat Tom Malinowski, and Obama bureaucrat Andy Kim… and it would explain why those Democrats are now looking for a way to move their followers and activists to the center. 

Well, he’s at it again…

Did you enjoy that?  What?  Too much? 

Yeah, it certainly is shock therapy.  But then, you needed it, didn’t you?

About Jonathan Pie (from Wikipedia)… Jonathan Pie is a fictitious British news reporter, created and played by British actor and comedian Tom Walker Pie appears in a series of video clips where he rants about the state of politics in the United Kingdom, and the United States presented as if he is a real reporter speaking his personal opinions to camera before or after filming a regular news segment.

The first spoof news report featuring Pie, released just after the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party, was responding to mainstream media reports that gave particular weight to Corbyn's past relationship with Diane Abbott. Walker was soon approached by several media companies, including RT UK, the Russian government-funded television channel, which offered him complete creative control. He worked with RT for several months, before leaving in July 2016, just prior to his appearance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

The character received international coverage after the 2016 US election, when his report on Donald Trump's victory went viral, becoming a YouTube trending video. PJ Media did not recognise Jonathan Pie as a fictitious character, presenting him instead as a real-life, professional "British lefty reporter".

Democrat candidate cries “bullying” … wants to sue.

Like the snowflake who wanted to be a Marine but refused to go through boot camp, a Democrat candidate in New Jersey is threatening to sue his GOP opponent because he believes the Republicans are “calling him names”.  This is funny as hell, coming from a candidate of a party that calls someone a “Nazi” or a “racist” nearly every day. 

A Democrat on the Little Egg Harbor Township Committee is claiming “verbal assault… slanders… harassment” and that “the damages to my political career are impossible to repair.”  Read the full story here:

It is kind of scary, because this Democrat Party candidate wants power but he is not willing to subject himself to the public commentary that goes with power.  He just wants to be able to screw with other peoples’ lives – raise their taxes, pass their laws, regulate them, tell them what they can or cannot do – but if someone grumbles about it, he’ll sue them too (and watch out… he’ll want to use your tax dollars to smash any negative comments about what he does).  He claims that it is a case of “bullying” but we think it is one of handjobbery. 

Even privates get to call generals names behind their backs.  Griping is a tradition in the military.

You have to wonder about the condition of American manhood when one of our nation’s two great political parties offers up specimens like this.  And it’s not only the wanker from Egg Harbor.  Take a look at congressional candidates Andy Kim and Tom Malinowski.  Andy actually pouts when anyone doubts the line of bullshit he serves up daily.  Kim is quite the acrobat – while insisting that he opposes war, he claims he personally ran the war in Afghanistan.  And Tommy (him pretty) Malinowski pissed and moaned to the Star-Ledger no less, demanding that they defend him from the “lies” being told by those meanie Republicans. 

Are you on the receiving end of any of his missives?  Malinowski’s fundraising requests combine a breathless urgency and gentle reassurance not unlike that employed by sex workers… “you can do it, that’s okay, just… make that contribution… yes, $200 is better… that’s it…”  Heck, you get a rash just reading his stuff.

If this is America closing in on the first quarter of the new century… what will be left of it at the last quarter?

Memo to Mark Quick, Harvey Roseff, and others

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin writes a dead-on column today that takes aim at all those people who believe that the blessings of civilization -- things like roads and bridges that don't end up killing you or your family members -- are birthrights instead of things we have to pay for.  Malkin writes:

 

"News flash, kids: Things aren’t free. Things cost money. And 'free' things provided to you by the government cost other people’s money."

 

Malkin is using this general principle of conservatism, something every Republican should understand, to make a point about ObamaCare, and a larger point about the behavior of some of our country's younger voters.  Drawing a bead on what she calls one of "the most politically popular provisions of the Orwellian-titled Affordable Care Act" she continues:

 

"...the so-called 'slacker mandate.' It’s the requirement that employer-based health plans cover employees’ children until they turn 26 years old.

That’s right: Twenty-freaking-six.

 

Is it any wonder why we have a nation of dependent drool-stained crybabies on college campuses who are still bawling about the election results one week later?


...Who pays for this unfunded government mandate? As usual, it’s responsible working people who bear the burden.

 

Earlier this year, the National Bureau of Economic Research found that the No Slacker Left Behind provision resulted in wage reductions of about $1,200 a year for workers with employer-based insurance coverage — whether or not they had adult children on their plans. In effect, childless working people are subsidizing workers with adult children who would rather stay on their parents than get their own.

 

Moreover, according to company surveys and other economic analysis, the slacker mandate has resulted in overall increased health care costs of between 1 and 3 percent. The nonpartisan American Health Policy Institute reported one firm’s estimate of millennial coverage mandate costs at a whopping $69 million over 10 years.

 

...The Obama White House will brag that the slacker mandate has resulted in increased coverage for an estimated 3 million people. As usual with Obamacare numbers, it’s Common Core, book-cooked math. Health care analyst Avik Roy took a closer look and found that the inflated figure came from counting '(1) young adults on Medicaid and other government programs, for whom the under-26 mandate doesn’t apply; and (2) people who gained coverage due to the quasi-recovery from the Great Recession.'

 

To add insult to injury, another NBER study found that roughly 5 percent of people younger than 26 dropped out of the workforce after the provision was implemented. They used their spare time to increase their socialization, sleeping, physical fitness and personal pursuit of 'meaningfulness.'

 

Then there are the hidden costs of the millennial mandate: the cultural consequences. All this 'free' stuff, detached from those actually paying the bills, reduces the incentives for 20-somethings to grow up and seek independent lives and livelihoods. Why bother? The societal sanctions have been eroded.

 

Now, the nation is suffering the consequences of decades of that collective coddling. Precious snowflakes can’t handle rejection at the ballot box or responsibilities in the marketplace. Appropriately enough, the new virtue signals of tantrum-throwing young leftists stirring up trouble are safety pins — to show 'solidarity' with groups supposedly endangered by Donald Trump.

 

Safety pins are also handy — for holding up the government-manufactured diapers in which too many overgrown dependents are swaddled."
