It’s such a new world out there

So much going on in America at the moment. Start with this:

DC UGLY: New Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Goes off on Trump: We're Going to 'Impeach the Motherf*cker!'
Video... 

And then there’s this:


PELOSI IN CONTROL…
Won’t rule out indictment, impeachment…
Speaker botches speech…
CNN Takes Her Out For Ice Cream…
PEW: Christians ‘overrepresented’ in Congress…
Paul Ryan exits at 12% favorability…

Not to mention this:


Ocasio-Cortez’s Radical Mandate for Govt Control…
Gender-based justice, Reparations, Universal income, Medicare for All… 

Venezuela Economic Collapse Has Lessons for America’s Socialists…

But it’s that last one I like the best since these are the lessons from Venezuela, and this is from Bloomberg!

Socialists in the U.S. should take note — if there’s a right way to do socialism, this isn’t it. Instead of cautious policies like those of Bolivia, Venezuela’s leaders chose to ignore the menace of hyperinflation, nationalize private businesses across the economy, and muck up the smooth operations of PDVSA. The result was predictable — one of the worst self-inflicted economic catastrophes of the century so far.

That’s right, if you want to introduce socialism, don’t do it like in Venezuela, do it like they did in Bolivia! If you thought the 20th century was bad, just wait till you see what happens now.

    I suspect Bolivia’s most successful economic policy was killing Che Guevara.

    Do I not keep telling you get rid of all women in politics?

    There’s also this:

  4. Actually, socialism gets masked and sold in terms of goals for the common good or public policy recs, systems, and data for continuous improvement and evidence-based policymaking. http://www.data4sdgs.org/sites/default/files/services_files/Interoperability%20-%20A%20practitioner%E2%80%99s%20guide%20to%20joining-up%20data%20in%20the%20development%20sector.pdf

    We have a panopticon and what Ervin Laszlo once called an organized society, but it’s hard to see because no one is using the s, c, or M word.

    If the screaming woman is actually a Muslim, where’s the burka? It would help no end.

    Ocasio-Cortez is brilliant.

    We haven’t seen anyone with her political antennae and magnetism since… Trump.

    I can see the Koch Brothers are maneuvering again for open borders. They are looking to collaborate with Pelosi to amnesty 12 million illegal aliens so as to permanently disenfranchise deplorable America. Their puppet Paul Ryan will soon publish his memoirs bragging about how he delayed Trump’s Wall until it was too late. It is time to banish and quarantine the libertarian movement forever. They cannot be allowed to influence non-Leftist politics again!

    So Pelosi cannot workout if she has missed a few pages of her speech or not but can effectively run a government.
    She is right though, some people can do a job better than others, and maybe, just maybe it is not her doing the better job.
    If some people can do a job better than others then why are they paid the same?
    When the same amount of (other peoples’) money rolls in no matter how well you do your job, how can you get the necessary feedback as to your performance, like the situation for small individually owned business. If the ice cream parlour selling unadulterated chocolate performed badly they would suffer financially, or if they increased their prices on a whim that would affect sales. The political class are out of touch. Small business are the shock absorbers of the economy.

    It’s not DC Ugly, it’s Democrat Ugly fuelled by the media. The other side is just cowed into acceptance by the media.

    The real culprit is the media.

  10. Crossie

    Their puppet Paul Ryan will soon publish his memoirs bragging about how he delayed Trump’s Wall until it was too late.

    And just as he is departing Congress his partner in crime, the failed presidential candidate of 2012 Mitt Romney, enters it. And just like Ryan he hates Trump for succeeding where he couldn’t. I bet Mitt and Nancy become a thing.

    That’s right, if you want to introduce socialism, don’t do it like in Venezuela, do it like they did in Bolivia! If you thought the 20th century was bad, just wait till you see what happens now.

    Especially when those who claim to oppose socialism, embrace things like tariffs, out of mindless support for El Presidente.

    Winning:

    Dow jumps more than 700 points, propelled by Powell’s comments and a blowout jobs report

    Stocks rallied on Friday after two positive pieces of news for the market.

    At 8:30 a.m., the Labor Department said the U.S. economy added 312,000 jobs in December. That blew past an expectation of 176,000 jobs. Later on Friday morning, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank will be patient in raising rates, quelling fears of tighter monetary policy in the near future….

    That’s right, if you want to introduce socialism, don’t do it like in Venezuela, do it like they did in Bolivia!

    Some aspects of Evo Morales are quite libertarian, for example he is encouraging a range of products based on coca (such as traditional tea, etc) and he is refusing to dump government resources into any “War on Drugs” which the country cannot afford.

    Morales talks the socialist talk, because that’s what many poor people want to hear, but watch how he walks and it’s a balanced middle line. For example, in Venezuela they started a state owned oil company (PDVSA) which was always a bit shit, then got worse when they sacked all the best staff. In contrast Morales imposes high tax on his gas fields but he is smart enough to leave foreign companies managing the work, but those guys know what they are doing.

    Also, remember that Bolivia is starting from rock bottom in terms of poverty, so when you have nothing most options that get you anything seem good. It’s too much to expect these people to suddenly jump into a free market economy. They have regular protests, they are weaker than all their neighbours, historically they have suffered from CIA interference (always a destabilizing force) and they are at rick of the USA “War on Drugs” attacks coming back again.

    The best thing the world can do is leave Bolivia alone to sort themselves out. Maybe it will work out, maybe not.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Super Wealthy be Taxed Up to 70% to Fund ‘Green New Deal’

    Yet another moron who doesn’t understand that the rich don’t have much “income” to tax.

    She is the type that believed Warren Buffet when he said his secretary pays more income tax than he does. Well gee Warren, start having the company you own and invest through start cutting you a paycheck and then let’s watch how fast your Income Tax bills pile up.

  20. Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez – we could probably add Pelosi and Schumer, too – are what you end up with when you’ve dumbed down so far that you no longer qualify as sub-human.
