Democrats Finally Feminize into State Socialism to be taken care of…..

IT’S OFFICIAL: DEMOCRATS NOW THE SOCIALIST PARTY OF AMERICA

by Steven Hayward   at PowerLine:

With new survey evidence showing that the base Democratic Party voter has been steadily shifting to the left for the last 15 years, Dana Milbank of the Washington Post yesterday made it official:

When Bernie Sanders launched his bid for the Democratic nomination, he was often asked whether he, a democratic socialist, would actually become a Democrat. Now, more than a year after he ignited a movement with his unsuccessful bid, that question is moot. The Democrats have become socialists.

This became official, more or less, Wednesday afternoon, when Sanders rolled out his socialized health-care plan, Medicare for All, and he was supported by 16 of his Senate Democratic colleagues who signed on as co-sponsors, including the party’s rising stars and potential presidential candidates in 2020: Elizabeth Warren. Cory Booker. Kamala Harris. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Over at The new New Republic, John Judis agrees:

[M]uch to my surprise, socialism is making a comeback. The key event has been the campaign of self-identified democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, who almost won the Democratic nomination and is now reputedly the most popular politician in America. Several opinion polls have also found that young people now think favorably of socialism and ill of capitalism—a result that would have been almost inconceivable in the 1970s, when socialism, in the words of historian Staughton Lynd, was still a “forbidden word” in American politics. . . For the first time since the ‘60s, socialism looks like a politics with a future in the United States.

I’ll go on record to say that if Democrats want to make one-size-fits-all single-payer health care the centerpiece of their 2020 campaign, it will be the biggest albatross since George McGovern’s $1,000 per person “Demogrant” idea went down in flames in 1972. Yes—indeed people like “free stuff,” but there are tens of millions with health care they like just fine (including union workers with gold-plated plans they’d lose under Sanders’s scheme). The attack ads write themselves: just imagine a parade of veterans telling their stories of lousy care and long wait times at VA facilities, with the tag line “Government Single-Payer In Action. Or inaction.” Or something like that.

Meanwhile, Sen. Feinstein continues to receive blowback from the left for her blatant anti-Catholic bigotry. This time from someone who surely doesn’t want Prof. Amy Barrett confirmed to a circuit judgeship any more than Feinstein does, but at least Lawrence Tribe is willing to note honestly what has taken place:

When you’ve lost Larry Tribe. . .

Finally, just for fun, maybe my favorite headline from the campaign last year, appearing in the Washington Post in March:

How’s Socialism Doing in Venezuela?

From Prager University

HOW’S SOCIALISM DOING
IN VENEZUELA?
DEBBIE D’SOUZA
Once there was a South American country with a promising future. It had a functioning
democracy, a rapidly developing economy, and a growing middle class. All the important
indicators, including education, health care, and foreign investment, were pointed in the right
direction.
It was far from perfect, but the mood was hopeful – and with good reason.
But now all that promise is gone. The country is a failed state, a hollowed-out shell of its
former self. Services like power and water are sporadic. The most basic consumer goods,
from bread to toilet paper, are in chronically short supply. Crime has skyrocketed. Freedom
of the press is almost non-existent. Democracy has been replaced by a virtual dictatorship.
The country is, I’m sorry to say, my beloved Venezuela, a place in which my family has deep
roots.
I can tell you what happened to it in one word: socialism.
In 1999, then-candidate for president Hugo Chavez promised to lead the people of Venezuela
to a socialist paradise. His theme was “Esperanza y Cambio” – “Hope and Change.” “Venezuela
is a nation of great wealth,” Chavez said, “but it’s being stolen from its citizens by the evil
capitalists and the evil corporations.” This wrong would be righted, he assured the voters, if
they elected him.
And they did. To their everlasting regret.
Chavez drew inspiration from his mentor, Fidel Castro. Like his mentor, he enjoyed giving
speeches – some that lasted as many as seven hours! He even gave himself his own weekly
television show where he would spontaneously break into song.
Here’s a rule: When your nation’s leader starts singing on national television, you’re in trouble.
Under Chavez, the government of Venezuela took over industry after industry. The government,
he assured everyone, would run these businesses better than private enterprise, and the profits
would be “shared” by the people. With great fanfare, he tore up contracts with multinational
oil and gas companies and demanded that they pay much higher royalties. When they refused,
he told them to leave. They did.
His image was burnished by Hollywood celebrities who flocked to see the great work he was doing – taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor. Progressive politicians from the
US and Europe also praised him lavishly.
Here’s another rule: When Hollywood celebrities visit your country to praise your leader,
you’re in trouble. When the leader sings on national television and is praised by Hollywood
celebrities, you’re doomed.
Socialism always works in the beginning, so people are fooled…in the beginning. It’s easy
for governments to confiscate money, but eventually there’s no more money to confiscate. In
the case of Venezuela, I mean that literally: People who could get money out of the country,
did. Many left the country altogether – nearly 2 million, according to Venezuelan sociologist
Tomás Páez. The wealth creators continued to create wealth, but they created it somewhere
else – Miami or Madrid and other places around the world.
When Chavez first ran for President in 1999, he said he would leave in two years if people
weren’t happy with him. But, like Castro, Chavez never had any intention of giving up power.
He died in office in 2013, replaced by his vice president, Nicolas Maduro. Maduro is Chavez
without the charisma or the voice.
The country is now a pariah, shunned by the world and isolated. It’s so bad that many
international airlines refuse to fly there. People stand in lines for hours just to get food.
Sometimes they walk away empty-handed. A recent survey found that 75 percent of Venezuelan
adults lost weight in 2016 – an average of 19 pounds. This national weight-loss program is
known cynically as “the Maduro diet.”
Still, Maduro holds onto power. Opposition leaders and journalists who report the truth are
jailed.
Venezuela is a cautionary tale.
Once a country goes down a socialist path, there’s no easy way back. And the longer a country
stays socialist, the harder it is to reform it. Venezuela has been socialist for two decades.
If you don’t think it can happen here, whether “here” is the United States or Europe or anywhere
else, you’re fooling yourself. When people get used to depending on the government – no
matter how poor they remain – that dependency is hard to break.
That’s why you should never buy the socialist lie. Socialism is a drug. And like a drug, it feels
great – at first. But eventually it will ruin your country.
Just like it ruined Venezuela.
I’m Debbie D’Souza for Prager University.

Is Donald J. Trump the Only Fair and Rational Person Left in Today’s American Politics?

Warning…..I am expressing my opinion gathered from my 83 years of human life, an American male who was made well educated primarily by his old maid public school teachers from K through 12  more than six decades ago.
They made me accumulate knowledge primarily so I and my fellow students, both male and female, could better understand the difference between what is and what isn’t….and what is good versus what is evil.
I was male and was treated as a male.  Females then were still allowed to be female.   Today’s Democrat leftist Hillary-like authoritarian  feminism of all colors, sexes, shapes and sizes hadn’t been invented yet.   Universities were still advancing knowledge six decades ago…..until the Gloria Steinem gurus and snakes came out of the nation’s  rotting wood work.   Feminizing the nation’s human animal became a Noah’s flood without an ark for survival……until, it seems,  the arrival of a real live actual American MALE, DONALD J. TRUMP,  IN THE AMERICAN WHITE HOUSE.
My old maid school teachers, ‘Miss this’ and ‘Miss that’, were far better educated regarding things that matter in a freedom-oriented  culture than any of today’s  television or radio programmers and newfolk, leftist fascist or conservative.   These small “l” Liberals not only have disappeared from our America schools, from   the once honorable Democratic Party, the one I attended until the rise of Ronald Reagan, but from the American ballot box.  Two plus two are supposed to  equal four.
The human male animal is born male, to be a father, to be strong,  a builder, protector, curious, a problem solver and a killer, if needed, to survive.  The human female animal is born to be a mother and a nurse with feelings, emotional, caring, ditsy, devious,  rarely a killer….all in order to survive.  Two plus two don’t have to equal four if a human female animal doesn’t want it to be.  She, after all, has feelings (hopefully!)
Politicians, of all sexes, colors, shapes, and sizes  in a democratic form of government are either born devious, or learn their deviousness in college,  from the elders of their political party, or merely from social learnings or business.
In America’s past,  its religion,  JudeoChristianity, was the people’s primary guide to achieve  righteousness…..to know decency and recognize the advantages of good over evil.   “There is neither good nor evil” that ancient adage was ingrained in me…..”ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO!!!!!”
We now live in America of the leftist era, about fifty years now of rising noises and actions from the feminizers of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes……where TRUTH IS CONSIDERED SO MALE!   Gone are the real male presidents of my lifetime,  Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan.   Gone are the schools and universities, that JudeoChristian educated America which sought TRUTH AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
We now live in Jeremiah Wright’s black and white  racist Obamaville America, one size, one sex, one color, one thinking, one Party, one BIG BUSINESS, one news agency and language,  the faker the better to unify the country, the one schooling unified by atheism, Islam, or perhaps even nativism…..on the way to create a fascist New World feminized into security, forever the same, stable, changeless, safe and void of knowledge and worry.
………but, along comes a Donald, an unpolitician, ….a  Donald whom I have come to adore, a real “honest-to-goodness” American guy,  a non-drinker, a non-druggie  who loved his parents, who loves his family, and who loves his country, the one before the leftist fascists gained control of the Democrat Party, the American school and university, the American Press, and the American greedy Big Business  manipulators:  Google, Amazon and such guys.
Along came Our Donald yesterday standing at Trump Tower foyer problem solving, preaching real, not fake truth,  freedom of thought, deed, and action while reviewing  honestly  amid the fake news CNN, MSNBC, and even Fox mobsters,  reviewing as fairly as evidence could provide,  the confrontation of two terror gangs  rioting in Charlottesville, Virginia last Saturday.
Note:   John Podhoretz usually advertises himself to be a conservative.  In his article below he  claims to be expert in White Nationalist, KKK, neoNazi goings on in our country.   He does have a Jewish last name.  Does he mask himself when he walks and talks in these KKK, White Nationalist and neoNazi crowds he know about so intimately?
Are they the hoodlums who trash and burn college buildings at the University of California at Berkeley?….the black and white Black Lives Matter  thugs to block traffic and shout hate and murder against whites and their establishments in step as they march  along   downtown streets?…..or the white feminazis, and other has-been  actresses screaming hate against President Trump?……or the countless savages, nearly all black,  who burned up sections of Ferguson and Baltimore USA not too many years ago?
Where exactly have these, yes,  “repulsive shouters, KKK racists, proNazi” practiced and enforced their evil  over the past year,  or years since they have exited the American Democratic Party so much that MATCHES THE VIOLENCE AND HATE of the BLACK LIVES RACISTS OF ALL COLORS, SEXES, SHAPES, AND SIZES?

THE FAKE NEWS OF GLOBAL WARMING

Fake news is a big, big sell these days in our American   communication and schooling industries now run by leftist ‘Democrat’ feminized and racified Marxists in our United States.    Ignorance is vital to today’s American feminized and racified Democrats.  It is taught so ‘religiously’ from coast to coast.   Nearly every citizen under the age of fifty as learned to know nothing about the outdoors.   The wealthier urban leftists in our gopherland seldom visit the outdoors.  They travel from kitchen to auto to parking ramp without ever feeling sun, shower, or snow.   They demand comfort first.     Only conservatives seem to be concerned about seeking Truth.

So what is the Truth about global warming?   BILLIONS OF DOLLARS has been collected or received  by the great bureaucracies of the world since the invention that THE EARTH IS WARMING WITH CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE OF WHITE MAN’S CULTURES AND INVENTIONS OVER THE CENTURIES….MOSTLY DURING THE TWENTIETH.   AMERICA, that is the working American, not the millions on welfare,  must be punished, fined, crippled for the nation’s economic and industrial  crimes.    (Leftist Democrat politicos and news fakers love the charge.   Leftist college blacks and feminists of all shapes, sexes, sizes and colors riot, write, and pillage from their sufferings.)  “The Earth must be made equal, especially in their learnedlessness in order to make leftists comfortable in their skin and body”  professor politicos preach.

Sixty years ago I did manage a Bachelor’s degree in Geography which required certain class learnings in geology, geomorphology, astronomy, climatology when grades had meaning over  leftism’s indoctrinations.   Religion of note then was JudeoChristianity which disdained telling, teaching lies.

Yet, it isn’t this particular place of education where I learned some prehistoric geography in my youth….Living then in Minnesota learning something about the outdoors was vital in the public school curriculum I was blessed with.   We had to learn about local matters….why did  our gopherland have so many lakes.   Where did all of these trillions of  boulders come from?   Why is it so cold and windy in winter? Where did all of these Swedes, Norse, Finns, and Germans come from?  And, the Indians, the Chippewa and Sioux?

We were taught that as recently as 15,000 years ago  where ever  we lived, stood, or sat in St. Paul and northward, the ground we lived on was 1,000 feet under glacial ice.   THANK GOD FOR GLOBAL WARMING!

I shall be 83 soon.   I have been an outdoor boy, lad, teen, young man, and even when I became a Republican in 1980 and thereafter.   I fell in love with the beauty of the outdoor plant world.   I also learned Russian, as a duty to my country, and earned a graduate degree in Soviet Studies which led me to visit the good old socialist dictatorship of fake democracy, the  USSR in 1966 and again in 1990.

We have had a cool summer here in outdoor Minnesota.  Last winter was a mild winter and the last two winters snowfall has been overall rather light.

Up to about fifty years ago April was a winter month….snow and ice still commanded the ground here in the Twin Cities every Sunday we celebrated Easter.   These days, the Dutch spring bulbs are all in bloom by tax day.    Yes, there has been some degree of warming here in the Twin Cities….much of it due to the asphalt and concrete overwhelming the geography for about the 5,000 square miles now occupied by human animals in and around the Twin Cities.

Communist China has warmed up as well.  But their citizens are not white, of JudeoChristian guilt about  misdeeds, or live in even a slightly freedom-oriented or tolerant culture. They have no global warming industry fighting their fascists.  Communist China doesn’t send billions to sell global warming propaganda.   They aren’t white Americans.

Like today’s  Charles Schumer Democrat Party  of the United States, THE STATE DECIDES the fate of the population  with a basket or two of perks maybe.   National ‘health care’ systems usually begin killing off their elderly masses  to save money…..for leftist salaries…..as has become the habit in today’s Britain as well in  other European socialisms…..a fate our Uncle Sam’s elderly will be experiencing soon.

That the globe has been warming some in my lifetime where I live is true in my experience.   During the glacial eras in our American northland, our American Indians trekked from Siberia across to Alaska probably to seek food and warmth, killed off the Mammoths for survival.

Do you know where North Dakota and South Dakota are?   Some 70,000,000 years ago dinosaurs including Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Brontosauruses ran wild amid jungles of ferns 100 feet tall….without a snow flake in sight….at least that is what I learned in public  schools I attended.

I wonder whom the Democrats blamed for the global cooling?   How would they punish a meteor?

Democrats have become evil oriented in America these days.   Fascism pushed by feminist fanatics and black racists, the nation’s atheist wealthy,  and supported by millions of legal and illegal relatively unschooled  immigrants has  now become a powerful political force alive in our America.   That global warming is caused by the American white of the past century has an element of truth attached.   Yes, the industrial age in America provided a wealth beyond historical record.

Millions of Americans have become rich from the fraud of global warming.   Al Gore is our most famous global warming fake, the fraud  scaring the daylights of countless millions of the unaware….  TODAY’S HUMAN ANIMAL DOES NOT KNOW IF MANKIND’S ‘PROGRESS’ IS THE CAUSE OF THIS RATHER MILD HALF CENTURY OF EARTH’S ATMOSPHERIC WARMING.    THE EARTH HAS BEEN A LOT HOTTER AND A LOT COLDER DURING ITS FOUR TO FIVE TRILLION YEARS OF RUNNING AROUND OUR  SUN.

WE HUMAN ANIMALS DO KNOW, HOWEVER, THAT OUR STAR, THE SUN, WILL EVENTUALLY ‘RUN OUT OF GAS’….AS IT IS DOING  A BIT EVERY DAY, AS DEMOCRATS SELL THEIR FAKE NEWS OF POLITICS AND WEATHER THAT WHITE REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HORROR AND DEATH BY GLOBAL WARMING, TOO…especially since Our Donald has become PRESIDENT!

Obama’s Fascism Marches Into the Arts…….Attacks Our Dennis

CAN A CONSERVATIVE CONDUCT AN ORCHESTRA?

by Dennis Prager:

“Most Americans are at least somewhat aware of what is happening at American (and European) universities with regard to conservative speakers. Universities disinvite conservative speakers, never invite them or allow the violent (or threatened violent) prevention of them. No non-left-wing idea should be permitted on campus.

But we may have hit a new low.

Let me explain.

For years, I have been conducting symphony orchestras in Southern California. I have conducted the Brentwood-Westwood, Glendale and West Los Angeles Symphony Orchestras, the Pasadena Lyric Opera and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. I have studied classical music since high school, when I first began playing piano and studying orchestral scores.

I conduct orchestras because I love making music. But I also do so because I want to help raise funds for local orchestras (I have never been paid to conduct) and I want to expose as many people to classical music as possible.

After I conduct a symphony, I then conduct select parts of the piece in order to show the audience what various sections of the orchestra are doing. After that, I walk around the orchestra with a microphone and interview some of the musicians. Everyone seems to love it.

After intermission, the permanent and professional conductor conducts his orchestra in another symphony.

About half a year ago, the conductor of the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra, Guido Lamell, who is also a longtime member of the violin section of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, asked me whether I would be interested in conducting his orchestra. I said yes even before he added the punchline — at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

For those not up to date on concert halls, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, which opened less than 15 years ago, is one of the preeminent concert halls of the world. Being invited to conduct a superb orchestra at that hall is one of the great honors of my life.

However, about a month ago, a few members of the orchestra, supported by some Santa Monica city officials, decided to lead a campaign to have me disinvited.

As I said, this is a new low for the illiberal left: It is not enough to prevent conservatives from speaking; it is now necessary to prevent conservatives from appearing even when not speaking. Conservatives should not even be allowed to make music.

To its great credit, the board of directors of the orchestra, composed of individuals of all political outlooks, has completely stood by its conductor and his invitation to me.

But the attempt to cancel me continues. It is being organized by three members of the orchestra, each of whom has refused to play that night. Readers will not be surprised to learn that two of the three organizers are college professors. Michael Chwe is a professor of political science at UCLA, and Andrew Apter is a professor of history at UCLA.

In an open letter to the symphony’s members posted on the Slipped Disc website, the three wrote, “A concert with Dennis Prager would normalize hatred and bigotry.”

One example of my hatred and bigotry includes my belief that in giving a child over for adoption, adoption agencies should prefer a married man and woman before singles and same-sex couples. Another — my favorite — is my having said that if there is no God, ethics are subjective, which will offend atheist members of the orchestra.

These are the types of academics who are giving universities their reputation for illiberal closed-mindedness — which not only ruins the universities as educational institutions but also hurts them financially. The New York Times recently published an article on how many alumni are no longer donating money to the colleges they attended because of the war on diverse thought on their campuses.

Now they want to do to orchestras what they have done to universities.

I hereby extend an invitation to Chwe and Apter to come on my radio show to explain to my listeners why my conservative positions render me a hateful bigot and explain why people with conservative views should not be allowed to conduct classical music. I hope they accept — people will then be able to assess who is and who isn’t a hater.

Not to be outdone by these professors, a former mayor of Santa Monica and current council member, Kevin McKeown, was quoted on Slipped Disk as saying: “I personally will most certainly not be attending a concert featuring a bigoted hate-monger. The judgement (or lack of) shown in inviting Prager may affect future community support for the Symphony.”

However, there are other voices. The Santa Monica City Manager Rick Cole does not agree with the former mayor. “This City supports the arts,” he said when asked by the Santa Monica Lookout whether the symphony’s invitation presented difficulties. “It appears that Dennis Prager supports the arts. The City, in funding a season of musical performances, does not choose what music is played or who plays it at any particular concert.”

I have devoted this column to this subject to expose the latest attempt of anti-liberal leftists — the real haters — to shut conservatives out of every form of intellectual and artistic endeavor.

Another reason is to ask readers in Southern California to attend the concert. Here is a rare opportunity to combine a terrific evening (especially if you’ve never attended a classical concert) in one of the world’s greatest concert halls with a chance to defeat the illiberal left. The more people who attend on Aug. 16, the greater the message that music must transcend political differences. And it rewards the Santa Monica Symphony board and conductor for their moral courage.

I will be conducting Haydn’s Symphony No. 51. Like Haydn, I think music is one of those few things that can bring people together. Clearly, not everyone agrees.”

Dems Plot to Destroy President Trump

THE DEMOCRATS’ PLAN TO DESTROY TRUMP

by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

“A plan titled “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action” found its way into the public domain some months ago, and is currently getting quite a bit of attention. It is a fundraising document created on behalf of four left-wing organizations: Media Matters, American Bridge, CREW and Shareblue. All four organizations were founded by David Brock, and it is likely that he wrote the “strategic plan.”

The document appears to have been written around the time of President Trump’s inauguration, and may have been prepared for use at this Democratic donor conference. It sets out a plan to destroy the Trump administration and return Democrats to power. The document is embedded in its entirety at the end of this post, so you can read it and draw your own conclusions.

Not surprisingly, these four groups do not accept the legitimacy of Trump’s administration and claim to have a “mandate” to resist anything he tries to do. (In all cases, click to enlarge.):

As a fundraising pitch, the proposal is full of bold plans and threats. It also reflects the still-fresh horror that Democrats felt after the election. It conveys a sense that the Left saw itself as beleaguered and on the defensive. This is the introductory description of how Media Matters and American Bridge will oppose the Trump administration and Republicans:

A few observations:

1) The document reflects, throughout, an obsession with “fake news.” If you didn’t know better, you might think leftists actually believe that that the 2016 election was swayed by, as this proposal says at one point, “teenagers in Macedonia.” A common theme is that Democrats control the “mainstream” press, but conservatives dominate in the digital space, including social media. The former is certainly true, but the latter strikes me as delusional. Here is another example of this theme, from a later portion of the document:

2) These organizations are confident of their ability to influence Facebook and Google to the detriment of the right. More on this later.

3) The irony of these organizations referring to conservatives trying to “silence dissent” is apparently unintentional.

4) Not surprisingly, these groups were already talking about impeaching President Trump by the time he was inaugurated.

Next, CREW and Shareblue:

1) CREW’s claim to be “nonpartisan” is risible.

2) Shareblue is more candid, pledging to “take back social media for Democrats” and “delegitimize Trump’s presidency.”

Media Matters claims to have a lot of influence with Facebook and Google. Unfortunately, I know of no reason to doubt that this is true:

Media Matters also brags of its ability to influence mainstream news sources, so as to “punish” “even the slightest bit of normalization of Trump.”

Media Matters says it has five issue-specific teams that deal with “the key progressive topics of our time.” But check out the list: with the exception of a general reference to the economy, these are not the issues that drove the Trump revolt or that promise to bring power back to the Democrats:

American Bridge pledges to stand in the way of President Trump’s appointments via extreme vetting:

CREW says it will enlist a “pro bono army” of liberal lawyers. Sadly, I suspect this project could succeed:

Shareblue anticipates that it will receive information via “leaks and intel from Democrats on House and Senate committees,” and vows to “weaponize oppo research.”

 

On the whole, the “Democracy Matters” plan doesn’t contain any surprises, but provides a valuable glimpse into the mindset and strategies of some of the Left’s more important organizations. Completely absent from the document is any understanding of why the Democratic Party has been steadily losing influence, or what issues and concerns drove President Trump’s 2016 victory……”

There’s more.  Please continue reading:

 

How Far Away Is Our USA from Venezuela’s Socialist Fascism?

Twenty many million illegal/legal nonAmericans have invaded the United States of America over the past decade organized, used, encouraged, maneuvered, financed, transported, purchased, and plotted with and  by the anti-white racist urban and university uneducated   Obamaling  rebels to put an end to the nation’s freedoms.

The nation’s communications and educational empires sell fake news, lies and threats to cripple the duly elected American businessman,  Donald J. Trump, to make way for leftist Dem thug rule….not too unlike the rise of Socialist dictator, Hugo Chavez  (more  Bernie Sanders crude than Barack sly) rule in Venezuela a few years ago.

Venezuela was until the rise of thug Hugo, the wealthiest, most stable “democratic oriented” or more accurately the most  democratic “touched” nation in the Western Hemisphere south of the Rio Grande.

While you are reading the following New York Post article regarding the collapse of Venezuela, how many American teens to the thirties do you think give a damn about the traditional American freedoms the nation once valued and often fought to defend……compared to those who scream freedom  for  marijuana!
