IS STUPIDITY A VIRUS?

I don’t enjoy calling liberals stupid, but it’s just about the nicest thing I can come up with that doesn’t require that I lie about them.

I mean, it’s perfectly reasonable that youngsters are stoopnagels. After all, they’ve been attending indoctrination centers ever since they were five or six years old, and relying on the likes of Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Jimmy Kimmel and “Saturday Night Live” for their news and opinions.

But there’s no excuse for such blatant ignorance when it comes to people as old as Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera. You would think that simply through the process of osmosis, that by associating with some intelligent people at Fox News over the years, these two oafs would have sharpened up. Instead, Rivera recently described the Palestinian settlement on the West Bank as “the world’s largest concentration camp.”

Oh, really? Try telling that to the folks who spent time at Auschwitz, Dachau, Treblinka and Buchenwald, you egotistical twit!

⦿  If the lunacy was limited to TV pundits, it would be bad enough. But the folks who make our laws are no better. Just when you think that nobody could say anything stupider than the last thing that Nancy Pulosi, Sheila Jackson Lee or Chuck clown-Schumer, uttered, my congressman, Brad Sherman, pops up on Tucker Carlson’s show, and in response to Tucker’s asking him why census takers shouldn’t be allowed to ask people whether or not they happen to be American citizens, replies: “Why not ask them if they own any guns?”

Tucker was too busy laughing at the ignoramus to reply, so I’ll take a shot at it. “The reason, Brad, is because it’s relevant when counting noses for the purposes of apportioning congressional districts to the 50 states to know whether the noses have a right to be here and vote in our elections. On the other hand, whether or not law-abiding people have guns is no more relevant to a census than whether they prefer jockey or boxer briefs.”

⦿  Something that should be relevant to Rep. Sherman and his 434 colleagues in the House is the fact that over the past 30 years, college tuition has ballooned by over 210%. As a result, the average college student will graduate indebted to the tune of $34,000.

Additional bad news: 40% of college grads will wind up working at a job that doesn’t require a college degree. That shouldn’t be too surprising when you realize that during the school year of 2015-2016, the feds loaned an astronomical $3.5 billion to kids majoring in visual and performing arts. If you’re looking for a silver lining, you’ll have to look elsewhere. The youngsters are far less likely to own cars or homes, and far less likely to get married and raise families, than their parents.

As Tucker Carlson said, it all helps to explain why commie-Bernie Sanders, who campaigned for tax-funded college tuition, got so much traction with the kids, and why polls confirm that millennials prefer socialism to capitalism. That shouldn’t be taken as a compliment to their education; all they actually know about the two economic systems is that one of them requires that you pay for what you want and the other one forces other people to pay for what you want.

The big mystery is why parents, who continue to pick up the lion’s share of college expenses, continue to encourage their offspring, most of whom have the same taste for education that I have for broccoli, to pursue a college degree. Perhaps if they fully grasped that the average college student, and average is what most of them happen to be, spend only three hours a day on education-related activities, they’d be a little more concerned.

The other nine hours a day the kids spend eating, shopping and hanging around, which is apparently an all-encompassing euphemism for boozing, smoking pot, taking selfies and gazing at their electronic devices with the same mindless dedication that sheep in a meadow devote to their grazing.

⦿  With the midterm elections creeping ever closer, with the possibility that Nancy Pulosi will resume her role as Speaker of the House and the very real possibility that mad-Maxine Waters will live to see President Trump impeached, it’s time for every Republican to make the case for the GOP. I realize that’s not always easy, but the alternative is terrifying. It’s a numbers game. If there’s one more Democrat than Republican in the House, it means that liberals get to chair committees, meaning that in league with their treasonous allies in the FBI and the Justice Department, they get to bury all the bodies and conceal all the documents that people like Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes, have been trying to bring to light.

To do that, you need to remind your friends, neighbors and relatives, not to fall for the usual left-wing tripe. You know, for instance, that the Democrats and their chums in the media will continue to insist that the tax reform bill only benefited millionaires and billionaires, ignoring the inconvenient truth that most of those poohbahs are Hollywood and Silicon Valley elitists.

The fact is that tax cuts will always benefit those who pay most of the taxes. But keep in mind that in the U.S., the richest one percent pay 39% of all income taxes. 

The top 10% pay 70.9%, whereas those making less than $40,000-a-year don’t pay a damn thing. It’s also a fact that a great many wage-earners aren’t as aware as they should be that, thanks to the tax bill, they are making more money these days. The reason they may be unaware of that fact is because some of them have their salaries deposited directly into their checking accounts.

If you know any of these people, you need to remind them that they’re better off now than they were under liar-nObama. Heck, Nancy Pulosi even went so far as to dub thousand-dollar bonuses as “crumbs,” easy enough to do if your own fortune is in excess of $30 million, but a pretty sizable crumb if it represents one or two percent of your annual salary.

⦿  I don’t usually engage in the prediction game, but judging by how much time and attention the Democrats are devoting to illegal aliens, I’m going to climb out on a limb and predict that their 2020 presidential candidate will be Hispanic. For one thing, there is nobody who can claim it’s his or her turn, the way that liar-Hillary Clinton could. For another, the beauty of having a member of a minority at the top of the ticket is that, like liar-nObama, he or she would have a Teflon shield with which to deflect the normal attacks that go with a run for the presidency.

You may recall that in 2008, rino-John McCain wouldn’t even allow a TV ad to be run that connected his opponent to Rev. Jeremiah (“G—damn America!”) Wright.

⦿  It was Henry Clay who said: “All religions that are united with government are more or less inimical to liberty. All those that are separated from government are compatible with liberty.”

I don’t know if he had Islam specifically in mind, but he should have, as all the nations in which Muslims are the majority are theocratic cesspools in which those who don’t kneel to Mecca are condemned as infidels and are subject to torture and death if they don’t convert.

The only places that rival them when it comes to sheer evil are nations like the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and North Korea, where the dictators declare themselves God and where religion was or is nothing more than a rumor.

⦿  Just for the record, has anyone ever seen Robert Mueller smile? Did he perhaps smile once when he was a baby and decide it just didn’t feel right?

 Ask Burt this, Why is the Republican Party in bed with the Democrat Party?   Hmmm? Why? Its not to hard to figure out that they are, and who they are and what countries they came from.

 Burt may be smart, but he seems to be just another bot at work with no real cure for the virus.

And ReleaseTheMemo, did not go any where in Congress, its BS!!!! and they continue to lie. Now Trump does have the authority to undo Unconstitutional Laws, but he don't, he continues to consider the American People as if we are stupid. There is no flu shot for Congress to fix stupid, but they can be removed or voted out.

Tif

Why don't you ask Burt yourself. I am sure he will respond to you.

The reason the memo was not release is because Rosenstein is holding it back. The question is why? 

Hey man, we are not buying this, and I am impressed, Tif slammed your boy and this Government real good....Nice.

"The fact is that tax cuts will always benefit those who pay most of the taxes. But keep in mind that in the U.S., the richest one percent pay 39% of all income taxes." Quote Burt Prelutsky. 

Keep this in mind while considering the above quote... Landlords and business owners pass on all their taxes, in their rents, fees, and charges for their products and services... The customers of the richest one percent fund their taxes by purchasing their goods and services.

Hence, the Consumer of their goods and services are actually paying the taxes of the richest 1%..  It is very disingenuous to CLAIM that wealthy/business owners pay taxes... in effect, they don't, they pass them on to their customers.

Ronald

It does make sense but if you or I were that 1% won't we pass it on to our customers? It also makes sense if a product is raised in price in delivery wouldn't it make sense to pass the cost to our customers..But the 1% do price 39% in taxes no matter what.

Rudy... I don't say or suggest that it is wrong to ExPENSE TAXES. However, it is disingenuous to do so and then claim one is paying 39% of the Income Taxes. By the way, personal/individual income taxes account for only 45% of the Revenues taken in by the Federal Government.

A breakdown of taxes from The White House Office of Management and Budget shows that in fiscal 2007 receipts from individual income taxes accounted for 45.3 percent of the government’s total tax revenues, while receipts from social insurance and retirement taxes made up 33.9 percent and corporate income taxes 14.4 percent.

Most of the social insurance and retirement taxes (94 percent of them) are Social Security and Medicare receipts; the category also includes unemployment insurance and Railroad Retirement. Excise taxes, which would include the gasoline tax, made up 2.5 percent of all receipts and 3.9 percent came from other sources. OMB’s "other" category includes estate and gift taxes, and customs duties and fees.

Note .... no mention of fines or seizures by the Justice Department and federal judiciary were included.  Huge sums of money... are disappearing in that quagmire of corruption.

Ronald

Thanks for the info and I don't disagree with those numbers

Unless you guys think that the American Public does not know that the IRS is not of our foundation like the Federal Reserve, you two are talking Greek.

Hank

Don't know Greek or even speak Greek

You don't thats Amazing !!!

ALERT ALERT

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
