Some of you are going to love this post. Most of you will hate it. My job is to ell the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts, and some of you can’t handle the truth. However, the truth shall set you free. I’m out of clichés. Bernie Sanders is an admitted “democratic socialist”. There used to be a time not that long ago where socialism was proven to be a very bad thing in America and one step away from communism.
It has been reported that the Cleveland Browns will release Johnny Manziel on March 9. Normally, the release of a Cleveland Browns’ quarterback comes after a horrible two to three year tenure and is accompanied by a new coach, general manager, or both. Lather, rinse, repeat. Manziel is different though. He isn’t being released for being crappy on the field. We don’t know if he is a good quarterback, bad quarterback, mediocre quarterback or anything else.
I don’t watch shows like Family Guy, The Simpsons, South Park, etc. They’re usually full of trash and (mostly) liberal propaganda. However, even a blind squirrel can find a nut every once in a while. A clip from an episode of Family Guy went viral last month. Peter Griffin: Everyone! Everyone! Listen, I have something to say. Cleveland Jr. Doesn’t deserve any of this. All those things you heard about Cleveland Jr.
In case you’ve missed the news, the Powerball jackpot is now up to $1.5 billion. That’s BILLION with a B. $1,500,000,000. Yowzer!!! That’s a lot of money. Life altering money. And yet, it won’t change a thing. Every single one of you reading this who decides to play won’t win. I can safely say that given that the odds of winning are 1 in 292 million. For whoever does win, problems will come with it.
Republican Presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is proposing a 14.9% flat income tax and throwing out the current tax code. The primary arguments made for going to a flat tax is simple: there will be no loopholes for anyone to jump through and take advantage of, no one will be taxed twice on capital gains, interest and dividends, and most citizens will have some skin in the game.
Prager University recently did a five video series on the different perspectives of the left and right on some key fundamental issues. I encourage everyone to watch the videos posted below but I’ll provide a quick take on each one. 1. The Size of Government The best place to start is with this one. What is the role of government in our lives? I think the U.S. federal government has only a few rights and responsibilities.
Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, and Bernie Sanders…three people who will never be president Disclaimer: I am NOT a Democrat. I am not endorsing any Democrats at all. I am not supporting Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley and I hope the Democratic nominee gets destroyed in the general election. None of them are capable of fixing this country. Now that the disclaimer is out of the way… Bernie Sanders is getting screwed.
Most of us have friends we went to elementary, middle, and/or high school with that we haven’t seen in a long, long time. We sometimes ask ourselves where they are and what have they done with their lives. Where would we likely stumble upon them? In the middle of downtown? On a bus? At a restaurant? A reunion? How about on opposite sides of a courtroom? Judge Mindy Glazer came across Arthur Booth, an old middle school friend at a bail hearing in Florida.
So a few days ago, the “Every Student Succeeds Act” was signed into law after passing the House and Senate with broad bipartisan support, a rarity in recent times. This law does away with most of the regulations that were put into place with “No Child Left Behind” and returns a lot of the power in regards to education policy back to the states. As a result, the strict pressures in testing students to receive federal funding is removed.
Barack Obama won over 90% of the black vote in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. In addition, Democrats routinely win at least 80% of the black vote in every election on every level. Yet black people have struggled for generations to get ahead while every other group has. This leads to an obvious question: Why don’t blacks vote conservative? Or perhaps the real question is why do blacks not consider any republican, independent, or any third party but vote for Democrats in droves?
