They’re Not Transformative

That’s the thing; despite various claims over the years that creatures like Obama, Hillary, and Sanders are a new age in Politics and/or are somehow “Transformative,” they’re really just another set of tares poisoning the fertile fields of America. And the only which any of them are Transformative is that they, like those before them, want to transform America into a failed Socialist state.

Face it, the cartoon above is from a 1934 issue of the Chicago Tribune and yet, it could be used today with only cosmetic changes. The only thing that has – since Johnson’s term as POTUS – is the “color” of their rhetoric.

Columbus Day!

It’s Columbus Day so we Americans are going to be forced to hear and/or read various rants about genocide and American Imperialism…and various and sundry insults about Christopher Columbus. Pretty much, only Thanksgiving brings out the Anti-Americanism of the Liberals and Progressives more than Columbus Day.

Happy Columbus Day!

So here’s a bit of Native American beauty to leaven the screeds and rants, and a reminder that not all, or even most, of our ancestors’ – assuming you even have an ancestor that was here at the time – relations with the indigenous population were unpleasant. 😉
