“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.” – President Ronald Reagan

President Trump’s feud with four freshman congresswomen known collectively as the “Squad” dragged into its second week as the president sought Monday to flip the script on those accusing him of stirring racial tensions.
In a blistering morning tweet — and comments afterward to reporters in the Oval Office — the president accused those same lawmakers of racism.
“The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart,” Trump tweeted.
The president appeared to elaborate while speaking to reporters alongside visiting Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. The president warned that the congresswomen are “really bad for our country” and made reference to when Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., recently reacted to criticism from the Congressional Black Caucus by saying, “We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.”
That statement from Pressley came in the midst of an ugly fight with members of the Democratic establishment led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but the two sides united against Trump after he tweeted two weekends ago that the lawmakers should “go back” where they came from and return once they’ve fixed problems at home (though all but one of the intended targets are from America). Democrats came together to issue a resolution condemning the remarks, which they described as racist.
The freshman lawmakers — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Pressley — have kept up the criticism of Trump ever since, especially after a rally crowd broke out in chants of “send her back” last week. Trump later distanced himself from that chant, which had been directed at Omar, who was born in Somalia.
“The President is sowing violence,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday, accusing him of “authoritarian behavior.”
Omar over the weekend called him a “racist president” who “wants every black/brown person deported and Muslims banned.”
Trump, speaking in the Oval Office, said that the congresswomen “must hate our country,” and that they were doing harm to their colleagues on the left.
“I think they’re very bad for the Democratic Party,” Trump said.
“When they talk about disgusting people, when they talk the way they talk,” the president said, “it’s not what our country’s all about.”
Meanwhile, Trump insisted there was “no racial tension,” and that “we have fantastic relationships with the African-American community.”
Saturday night, after a hard day’s work, my bride and I settled down in our matching recliners with the built-in caddy between them to watch one of our favorite movies, the John Wayne Classic “Rio Bravo”.
The reason that I am telling you this is that the Duke had the “Squad’s” number way back in 1975.
…I always thought I was a liberal but I came up terribly surprised when I found I was a right wing conservative extremist…I have always listened to every human being I’ve ever met about how I should feel. But this so-called new liberal group… they never listen to your point of view and they make a decision as to what you think and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person. For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me…it hasn’t affected my career in popularity in spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make them do it. There isn’t a hell of a lot we can do to change human behavior. We keep making laws to try to change human behavior but we can’t do it…You’re being conned into Keynesianism and socialism now but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior. It isn’t going to stop the greed. If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a b!tch in the room, you come back a year later one of the b@st@rds will have most of the money. It’s just human nature. We’re never gonna whip it with a lot of laws.
As communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help…I think there are people who try to affect a thinking where they know more than some other son of a b!tch and try to pull a false impression on what human nature is. We’ve proven we go back to hope at the first opportunity…and bam they’re out there ready to grab it. So we are optimistic; we have to be optimistic. What else would we be if you lose optimism?” – John Wayne
We Americans would be just like “The Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse”…a bunch of Socialist Losers.
On a Sunday, in October of 2008, outside of Toledo, Ohio, Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Hussein Obama met a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe, who owned his own plumbing company, dared to ask Obama about his proposed tax hikes. In fact, he told Obama that he did not want to pay higher taxes, he was already paying enough. Obama told him,
Now, I respect the disagreement. I just want you to be clear – it’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.”
…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.
Obama was talking about the part of Marxist Theory known as “Socialism”.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Socialism is
any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
If you listen to the Far Left Democratic Party, “Socialism” is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
The problem is Socialism has never worked in any country which has installed it as a form of government.
The failed application of the Marxist Theory of Socialism is responsible for the desolate, impoverished wasteland that is the country of Venezuela, a country which has been “sharing the wealth” for decades.
If it were up to the Far Left Democrats, our Sovereign Nation would be traveling down the same ill-fated path that brought Venezuela to ruin.
America was not founded to be a Socialist Nation.
We are a Constitutional Republic.
I believe that one of the main reasons that Liberals, like the squids…err…”Squad” are continuing to show their collective as…err…backsides is they fact that they know, in their cold dark hearts, that Trump is going to be re-elected, as so far during his presidency he has succeeded in bringing back jobs and, in turn, reviving America’s near-extinct Middle Class.
Because as long capitalism is working the way it is supposed to, under the watchful eye of an AMERICAN President, who actually has some business acumen gained through Real World Experience, the Left’s cry for “Socialism” will continue to fall on deaf ears.
And, that is a good thing.
Because as Lady Margaret Thatcher once so famously quipped,
The trouble with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.
…and, you end up like Venezuela.
