Anarchy For The Employed

Libertarianism: Anarchy For The Employed
Libertarianism: Anarchy For The Employed

Honestly, if you’ve listened to / read their respective rantings, you’ve probably already noticed that the Libertarians and the Anarchists are separate only in that most of the Libertarians have decent jobs and real property, whereas the Anarchists don’t. They’re a lot like – and there’s a LOT of overlap between them – the #NeverTrump-ers and the #Resist-ers, fellow travelers who seem to hate each other despite sharing goals and enemies in common.

Ah well, politics does make for strange bedfellows and sometimes results in coyote ugly mornings. 😉

The Indoctrination Gap

The Indoctrination Gap
The Indoctrination Gap

Periodically – normally either while they’re losing an election or immediately after having lost one – our domestic enemies will bemoan the “education gap” between them and Americans, who vote for Republicans. The rest of the time they tend to be patronizing and sarcastic about it and those “ignorant bumpkins” in rural America.

Yet, what is truer is that there is a widening Indoctrination Gap between the Leftists and the American people. A couple of generations of ever-increasing left-wing indoctrination being added to- or disguised as “higher education” has both guaranteed that college graduates would at least lean Left and that Americans would more and more reject the institutions that did this and which continue to escalate their doing of it.

And, to cement things and increase both the divide and the Leftists’ indoctrination of the college educated, the graduates’ incurred debt, declining ROI on their education, and the need or implanted desire to move to higher cost of living urban centers, all conspire to both separate the two groups further and to make Americans think poorly of college as path to take in life.

But hey! What do I know? I’m just a deplorable, knuckle-dragging ignoramus…

Happy Retail Season

Happy Holiday Retail Season
Happy Retail Season, America!

Happy Retail Season, One and All! 👿 That’s right; retail season, not Christmas season – and, at this point, we’re deep in it, with only 17 shopping days left. So, forget about our nation’s domestic enemies’ war on Christmas; and too, accept that Christians lost that war before the Left ever engaged in it. Understand the true meaning of this holiday – spending, spending, spending.

Think about it.  Christmas holiday sales comprise about 19% of the retail industries’ total sales in any given year, resulting a bit over 700 thousand “seasonal employees” being hired throughout the US to handle the holiday rush of consumers eager to the point of danger to buy stuff.

And please, don’t forget that we have to buy the decorations too.  It’s just not Christmas without a house full of decorations made by migrant laborers in a Chinese sweatshop.
