    I was thinking of something similar except it was uncut heroin in all the blue areas of the country.

    You see, the Liberal point of view is that life now should have a guaranteed good outcome. NO MATTER WHAT.

    And thus they have created an "entitled mentality" - folks who think the government owes them a living.

    And they keep voting for the politicians who promise them a free lunch.

    I would die for my freedom today. If I’m a slave I have nothing to live for. Liberty or death for me!
    That is why I refuse to take a job and own two companies. That is why I sold all of my stock and own Bitcoin! I have been in bondage to bankers before. Not anymore! I’m not crazy, I just love freedom and I have tasted both freedom and bondage before. I choose freedom!

    There is no question that failure without evidence of effort has been rewarded as courageous and inspiring as long as they proclaim their victimhood on the most high profile forums available.

    Here's an anecdotal story. Back in 1980 I lived in South Padre Island and worked for a sporting goods store (catering to marine sportsmen and women). I was 24 years old. In our shop was a woman who could wrap deep sea fishing rods. She was probably 20 years older than me. She was very artful in the colorful threads she used along with the varnish. She was known all over the valley as the best at what she did. This woman was missing her left arm up to her elbow. One day she stopped by place on the bay for a visit with her girlfriend (yes, they were gay) and we drank some beer and smoked a joint. As I got to know them better her disability came up. I can't remember if she was born that way or what. So we were discussing the challenges of her craft given her disability. It was clear she wasn't making much money. So I asked her if there was money available from the government. You know what she said?

    "I make my own way."

    Wow. I was blown away by this and never forgot her words.

    But that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

    It's the same with my late Father, a Cuban who came to America in because he was a world class gymnast. Once he was done with his collegiate career, he suddenly became an immigrant with a heavy accent and no money in the bank. Ultimately, he earned his Ph. D. and made a good life for himself and our family. We lived in Florida and believe me, they didn't think much of Cubans so he suffered at the hands of discrimination. But he never talked about it unless I brought it up and all he would say was, "What can you do but try your best." He never cried about it. It wasn't a legacy to pass except to know that life is not fair and it's up to you to do something about it. He understood activism and greatly admired Doctor King. But he didn't wait around for the scraps from the government and he certainly didn't take any pride in his failures.

    I know there are many people like that around but they are not welcome in the political world.

    Why?

    It makes you wonder. What is the real story behind the scenes about Joe's health? If they believe he is deteriorating rapidly then this is the backdoor power play by the aggressive leftist hatred wing.

    The pro-illegal alien/open border Latino's on the board are posting things like, "I survived the border crisis" or saying things that "We understand that immigration ebbs and flows." They are so sick. They mock a red herring. Nobody is unsafe per se; it's that the children and others destroying our immigration laws and creating a humanitarian crisis, is in fact the crisis. You won't believe how tribal the Left-wing Raza activists are. They are not Americans. They only take and support their own. They are the true racists.

    THIS IS REALITY IN MEXICO
    Sounds smart and intelligent to me:
    Mexico is smarter than US; this is reality in Mexico
    Voter registration cards with photo and fingerprint with hologram to prevent forgery is the law in Mexico.
    *New Immigration Laws*

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
    2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.
    3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or any other government assistance programs . Any who are a burden will be deported.
    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
    8. If foreigners come here and buy land, their options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
    9. Foreigners may have NO protests; NO demonstrations, NO waving of a foreign flag, NO political organizing, NO bad-mouthing our president or his policies.These will lead to deportation.
    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.
    Too strict? The above laws are the current immigration laws of MEXICO!
    If it's good for American's to obey Mexican laws, then it's good vice versa!!!

    Yellen pledges U.S. international cooperation, calls for global minimum tax

    This is what sanctimony brings us. The Liberal elite has COMPLETELY brainwashed their constituents and that includes "educated" Liberals.

    Remember, Yellen made hundreds of thousands giving speeches to hedge funds such as Citadel. CRICKETS from the Left.

    They make me sick.

    This is where "America First" comes from. It is because Joe and his ilk are ready to cede power to the incubator of White Privilege (Europe) and COMMUNIST CHINA who they protect over here with their accusations of racism.

    As compared to the corruption of Biden, the hatred of Trump was over so much pettiness. It's unbelievable.

    Shouldn’t they push to set a global max tax rate not to be breached? SMDH.

    They get everything 180 degrees wrong.
