Go Ahead, Fine With Me.

Having a hate club is interesting. 

While one expects the enemy to hate him, it’s rather hilarious when one’s own supposed allies can’t stand him, either.

This columnist would rather see the Democratic Party shift radically to the left, where it was a long time ago.  However, one deals with the electorate which exists.  And right now, the average American voter can easily be talked out of concepts which are mutually beneficial to society.

It wasn’t that long ago that Americans believed that Jim Crow laws were moral.  It took a lot of blood and two Supreme Court decisions to change the minds of those in American society.  

Sanders admitted that his job was to radically transform the Democratic Party to where it was during a time when Ronald Reagan won two elections.  While he did not use those exact words, that was the general idea.

This is because Ronald Reagan captivated the blue-collar vote-just as Donald Trump has.  Now, Trump occupies the White House and the “progressives” blame the only true Democrat who ran for president in November of 2016.

What did Bernie Sanders say about my party? 

Can you figure out how a political party who arduously tries to raise the minimum wage can possibly be morally bankrupt?

One of Vermont’s former governors, Madeleine Kunin explained Bernie Sanders in one sentence: “He plays it both ways.”

Well, he did get support from the National Rifle Association in 1990, despite his poor rating with the organization.

While it is the Democrats who try to raise the minimum wage and while Democrats fight to maintain the eight-hour day, Sanders has called the Democratic Party morally bankrupt

According to Buzzfeed News, Sanders said that a speech by JFK made him sick.

Sanders’ complaint about President Kennedy, according to Buzzfeed News, was his staunch opposition to communism.

And this is who the ‘bots truly believed would win swing states in November of 2016?

Perhaps one of most hilarious facts is that these “progressives” who claim to espouse non-violence are just as insulting and hate-filled as any conservative.   While that’s not to say that this columnist isn’t exactly in the clear regarding that issue, at least this columnist admits that he could push a religious conservative’s head through a car windshield and walk away with a clean conscience.  Conversely, progressives usually talk about being peaceful, but pay attention to what happens as the exchange continues, and you will notice that they become intense.

The Democratic leadership should do something about the progressive problem, as those who call themselves such are not the modern-day contemporaries of Teddy Roosevelt-who was a progressive.

That’s why Teddy ultimately left the Republican Party.

Conservatives hate me because I believe in compassion-but only for those who are in trouble through no fault of their own.

Progressives hate me because I know what the American public will allow and what it won’t allow at a particular point in time.  I also know why Americans have the views they do, so I have no problem with most of their childish bile. 

This is why I explain to progressives that you have to let that dummy in Kansas who has voted Republican since the 1964 election lose his wife to cancer because the insurance company opted for the cheaper treatment.

Just let her go.

Why?  Remember the Harry and Louise campaign which derailed the health care campaign in 1994?

Progressives need to stop talking to conservatives because it simply doesn't solve anything.  Mitch McConnell had no intention of compromising with President Obama, so what makes a progressive believe that he or she is going to have any success in talking to someone who lives in a trailer park in Mississippi that everyone is supposed to be equal?

Whether my enemy is a conservative or a progressive, bring family into it, and not only do I become the meanest motherfucker on the planet, but that progressive proves he is just as much the troll and the same terrorist as is the Republican, but progressives who act like conservatives prove they have a losing argument.

Do something with that demonstration sign you use when you engage in peaceful protests, will you please?

Do that which the corporations do to you every time you vote for an independent.  After all, it saves corporations the paperwork and you seem to enjoy it.

So, go ahead and hate me.  Call me every name in the thesaurus.  Doubt my liberal credentials.

You’re only hurting yourself and you give me a good laugh in the process.

There's Only ONE THING WRONG With The Democratic Party Today

    There is only one thing wrong with the Democratic Party today, and we all know what the problem is: those who call themselves progressives.

    Honestly, there was a time when Americans supported progressivism; back when meat companies sold rotten meat without government oversight, back when football players lost their lives during the game, back when women won the right to vote, and so forth. 

    For progressivism to work, most of the voting population must arrive to the same conclusion; namely that there must be reform.  However, this is where the similarities end. 

    We have na├»ve people who truly believe that the problem is corrupt politicians. 

    So, what?  Do these people want a raise in the minimum wage, or don’t they?   If that’s the issue of concern for that bloc of voters, no one should care about the eighteen-year-old intern who did a little extracurricular in the office so that she could afford to go to college.

    The guy just raised the minimum wage.  Thank him and be happy about it.

    The American people truly trusted their government to protect them from the corporate machines-and this was especially true after October of 1929. 

    However, this was the last generation to trust the federal government’s wisdom in guiding the country, as the baby boomers, the most spoiled generation on Earth, never understood why Dad was always at work and why Mom was practically unconscious. 

    They had no idea what their parents went through as Dad went from town to town in a futile search to sell apples for a nickel.  Hence, these broken condoms who simply went into the wrong orifice never quite caught on to the idea of saving money.  

    The funny part is that this pathetic generation that: ‘turned on, tuned in, dropped out.’  That’s okay, because they’re paying the price for that now.  Isn’t it unfortunate that they didn’t think enough to teach their children well, because their children fell for Bernie, and that will put us right back into the situation we had in 1929.

Well, you will, but I won’t.

I remember when I was a delegate at the Colorado Democratic Caucus.  The Bernie people were rude, shut the event down several times, and never allowed Hillary Clinton delegates to speak.  They were worse than children.  They wanted to change the rules which they Democratic Party has had in place for decades.  They only wanted to argue with people; and labelling us as ‘not being liberal enough’. 

    What is truly delusional is that they still believe Sanders would have beaten Trump.

    Today, on Facebook, they try to steer the Democratic Party in an unwinnable direction, as they attempt to tackle issues which no one at the dinner table understands: corporate fraud, disastrous results of deregulation, and the end of birth control and civil rights for Americans with Disabilities.

    These obstructionists need to be evicted from the Democratic Party, not because of their ideas, but because the voting public is not ready to accept their ideas.  In the end, all the Bernie Sanders wing will do is to stick the rest of us with a theocratic fascist government which would be much further to the right than it already is.
