Video of the year: Arielle Scarcella took a raft to freedom:
Over the last months, we’ve posted often about the insanity in the left, from arguing about the number of genders to Trump Derangement Syndrome.
A few days ago, I found this on YouTube.
Like a person escaping an authoritarian regime, Arielle Scarcella built a raft and headed out. Arielle is not some traditional girl who opposes abortion and believes that marriage is between a man and a woman. She is as “woke” as they come, or at least she used to be.
This is her video…click to watch!
Arielle objects to much of what she sees, such as arguing about 97 genders, accusations of bigotry if you disagree, and “child drag queens.”
Maybe Arielle is just a publicity-seeker or perhaps a sign of things to come.
My hope is that some people on her side watch her video and examine the insanity of their movement.
Chubby Checker had dancing in mind when he sang “how low can you go” in that 1962 hit “Limbo rock“.
Maybe someone won this week’s Democratic debate — or rather, screaming match. My feeling is that no one really did, at least nobody on that stage. Give President Trump another win.
It got really low in Charleston. Watching these people go back and forth was painful.
Listening to Elizabeth Warren talk about Michael Bloomberg allegedly telling a pregnant woman to “kill it” was the low point of the night for me. After all, this is the same woman who voted “no“ earlier in the day for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in the U.S. Senate. And she is talking about someone killing babies?
Watching moderators lose control of the night did not help either.
In the end, it was a waste of time as John F. Harris wrote:
The evening was defined by peevish exchanges, raised voices, feeble attempts at humor, complaints about fairness in being allowed to speak, and extended passages of cross-talk in which moderators utterly lost control of the debate and it was impossible even to understand what was being said. The noise was hardly conducive to a sustained or intelligible argument about whether Sanders is the strongest nominee or the one most representative of the views and temper of the party.The evening offered limited opportunities — were these possibly enough? — for six Democrats not named Sanders to revive their candidacies with last-stand moments to emerge as the main alternative to the self-described democratic socialist for the balance of the nomination contest.
Yes — a bad night all around.
So what’s next in this clown show? We will know more the morning after Super Tuesday but we can say this about the state of the Democrats:
1) This is a miserably unhappy group of people; and,
2) They are going to bring all of that misery and unhappiness to Milwaukee or their convention.
Bad night. I would have been better off watching a Chubby Checker video.
A post from the 2012 archives
Let's give CBS News a little credit. They posted some great stores about Fast & Furious a few months ago. They've been on top of that story, also known as "Obama gave 2,000 guns to Mexican cartels and nobody knows who approved the decision."
Today, they came out with a story about the Obama debt:
"The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency.The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office.The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day.The National Debt also now exceeds 100% of the nation's Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services."
It is true that Pres Bush's last deficit included TARP, or the $700 billion item that was passed by Congress (Obama voted Yes) to address the banking crisis of the fall of 2008.
However, Pres BO's deficits have nothing to do with what he inherited. They are the result of spending, spending and more spending. We've spent trillions of dollars and all we have to show for it is Solyndra, a stimulus that did not stimulate as predicted and BO-Care, an open ended entitlement about to blow a hole in our finances.
We know that "jobs" will be a big issue this fall. However, we need a very serious talk about spending. We can't go on like this. At some point, unsustainable actually happens and we are Greece!
We remember this from 2008. Is Pres BO irresponsible and unpatriotic? I guess so.
