"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

Democrats will get beaten even worse if they stick with socialists like AOC
Don't be surprised if Doug Schoen, Democrat consultant, adds Linda Ronstadt's "You're No Good" to the soundtrack of his new message to the Democrats. Yes, Mr. Schoen wants Democrats to walk away as soon possible from Representative Ocasio-Cortez because she is no good.
This is from Mr. Schoen via New York:
Democrats should stop pressing "defund the police" and other hot-button social issues if they want to stay competitive in 2022, according to new research from longtime Democratic pollster Douglas Schoen.
"The data says to me that if the Democrats go the progressive route they can lose the House and the Senate overwhelmingly in 2022," Schoen told The Post. "The incoming Biden administration [sic] has to understand that unless they take a moderate path, that is a likely potential outcome for the Democrats."
Schoen is a longtime pollster for Mike Bloomberg, who worked on the billionaire's fly-by-night presidential campaign. His firm, Schoen Cooperman Research, spoke to 1,000 respondents in a post-election poll between Nov. 8 and 9.
Mr. Schoen is correct, but will anyone listen? If Mr. Biden indeed takes over on January 20, he will have a hysterical left that will send many centrist Democrats away or joining the GOP to oppose their ideas. In other words, the left took a beating in 2020, and everybody knows it.

Remember when Cuba did not have a “baby” problem?
Once upon a time, Cuban men and women got married and had lots of babies. I recall growing up with lots of cousins, uncles and aunts. It was Cuba or the place that we remember growing up in!
Let’s begin in Cuba, where federally run “love motels” (i.e., affordable rooms for fornicating) have sprung up throughout the state due to the fact that public sex in public parks is getting out of hand. The country’s continued housing crisis means multiple generations sleep under the same roof, while divorced duos can’t afford to not continue living together.
The un-Hemingway-sounding “Provincial Housing Company of Havana” told it’s official trade union weekly: “To think about how to diversify options for love is not farfetched, we want to revive this service that is in high demand, has a big social impact and without a doubt is very profitable.”
This is all due to the fact that, by 2025, Cuba’s population is projected to decrease by some 1 million residents thanks to low fertility and birth rates.
Cuba, which has unrestricted access to legal abortion, has an abortion rate of 58.6 per 1000 pregnancies in 1996 compared to a Caribbean average of 35, a Latin American average of 27 (the latter mostly illegally performed), and a European average of 48. Additionally, contraceptive use is estimated at 79% (in the upper third of countries in the Western Hemisphere).
