Doesn’t take a genius to raise taxes or sell assts.

What the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee needs is to cut the budget!

Why 600+ Gooferment Skrule Districts when 21 aligned by county would do fine?

EVLYNN: “Who ever is last will be last.”


Today’s a sad day for me.  Interesting that this flowed into my email today.  I always wondered what rare blood disease that took her from us.  Hopefully, someday someone else will not have to go through it. 

“My love, were it in my power, I would sadly grant thee this boon. But, we have to continue to follow His Plan for us. Let’s go forth and speak no more of this. Who ever is last will be last. It will be His choice; not ours. We’re but humble custodians of His temple on earth. It’s not our place to trump His plan. Whatever that plan be, know that I will be with you to my last breath.” — character “John” in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 2 Page 399

— 30 — The Facts You Need To Know That Will Allow You to Destroy Green New Deal Thinking (It’s DOA!)

The dominant source of energy for the foreseeable future for both the United States and the world will be fossil fuels, chiefly in the form of oil, natural gas, and coal. Throughout the world, many groups will push hard for massive subsidies to wind and solar energy. Yet, that attempt, no matter how bold, will fail to shift the overall balance of energy production toward green sources. The fatal drawback of wind and solar is their lack of storability. Solar works when the sun shines. Wind works when breezes blow. Both often provide energy when it is not needed and fail to provide it when required. Any legal diktat that puts these renewable sources first will only produce a prolonged economic dislocation. Pie-in-the-sky proposals like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, which stipulates 100 percent of energy needs be supplied by “clean, renewable, and zero emissions” sources, should be dead on arrival.

The “democratic socialists”, who are backing this looney tune idea, should be laughed out of the public arena for their stupidity.  Any that are left should explain the economic misery of Venezuela and the genocides of Communist / Socialist countries.

Yeah, “capitalism” may be the worst economic system for allocating scarce resources but it’s better than all the other ones.

Now if we could just get the Gooferment, politicians, bureaucrats, “celebrities”, and media talking heads out of the way, then imagine the “miracles” we’d see.

“People Who Say It Can’t Be Done … … should not interrupt those who are doing it.” — attributed to George Bernard Shaw

Maybe, just maybe, “We, The Sheeple” should embrace more Capitalism — not Crony Capitalism — solve our problems.
