Viva el Socialismo

Posted in 2016 Election, Politics, Society on May 28th, 2016

The wages of sin are death or so it is said (Romans 6:23). The wages of Socialism are…wait! what wages?

Long Live Socialism!
Viva el Socialismo – #SentirElBern

Yes, Venezuela’s attempt at Socialism has, not in the least unexpectedly, ended in total economic collapse and mass starvation and persistent, bloody societal upheaval. Argentina and Brazil are not far behind.

This is obviously not something that Bernie Sanders wants to comment upon. Hillary Clinton wouldn’t wish to either since her agenda differs from Bernie’s only in the speed of its implementation and the race and gender specifics for that implementation.

But none of the above means that socialism provides no benefits. There’s an upside to it.

Socialism Does Have An Upside

And yes! That upside is the new and growing plethora of Venezuelan babes – and Venezuela has many beautiful women – who are now rethinking their personal economics, virtue, and futures. 😉

Heck! With manufacturing and production essentially defunct in Venezuela, moving into the service industries makes good sense for these women. It’d certainly bring in a much needed influx of foreign capital.

And, if combined with well-reasoned immigration reform, this could be a real win-win situation. Admittedly though, given global economics and exchange rates, I’d favor a somewhat more managed economic approach over a fully free market one. Renewal resources or not, I’d never advocate a completely predatory extraction model. 😉

Oh! And for those of you reading this who are already screaming in rage or are about to, you need to “check your privilege.” In all statistical likelihood, your from the Developed World; it’s even probable that your in America. Hence, not only are you one of the Global 1%, you’ve also never even seen real poverty beyond a few sanitized commercials for charities.

Divided Democrats

Posted in 2016 Election, Humor, Politics on May 27th, 2016

Divided Democrat Party
Hillary v. Bernie – Divided Democrats

The Lamestream media may prefer, as good Praetorians are wont, to showcase the supposed division of the Republican party, but it is the Democrat party which is most truly divided. The war between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders has divided that party most severely.

Given that the two candidates in question are differentiated only by gender, this schism is amusing.

They say that you can lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig but I sure as Hell don’t want to know where a Liberal or Progressive is going to put lipstick on this ass. 😆

2016 Political Outlook

Posted in 2016 Election, Humor, Politics on May 23rd, 2016

At the risk, such at it us, of sounding like a person of my age of any given generation, the 2016 elections seem to be one of America’s true watershed moments. To me it seems that we as a nation and people are and have been treading water in the middle of the Rubicon and are finally at the point where me must choose to: cross back to our own lands, cross over into something else, or simply allow ourselves to sink and drown.

The 2016 Political Outlook

And, more so than has been usually the case, the major political players are each stark, living banners of the political, moral, and philosophical outlooks of the various subsets of America’s electorate.

Shall we make America great again by restoring and renewing it? Shall we further its transformation into something utterly unrecognizable? Or shall we drown, in this case in the effluvia of our own waste?
