Robert McCloskey Mar 12 2021 at 8:36 am Good point. Roland Deshain Mar 12 2021 at 11:45 am That’s the next step! They are getting over confident. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist Mar 12 2021 at 1:13 am “Thought these Democrats gave up slavery” Nah. Never happened. The Democrats were FORCED to give up some of the most obvious and blatant forms of slavery during the (un)Civil War. But deep inside, they never did. Even today, they’re pushing for more. And they never will give up their desire for power over others, until they’re all dead. Neanderthal JTC Mar 12 2021 at 1:27 am Absolutely zero corollary between that civil war and this one… To wit, this one is actually about slavery. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight Mar 12 2021 at 4:34 pm What? And the 1860 debacle wasn’t? NotYetInACamp Mar 12 2021 at 2:29 am The world has been financialized by the bankers, and no one owns anything anymore except the “elite.” No one of the vast majority of the world owns much net value anymore. Everything is financed. The cash flow is how they control all. Inconsolable Consolidation into the few corporations continues apace. 70+ of small corporations are kaput in the USA, and a similar effect has occurred throughout much of the world. Classical slave. Wage slave. Financial slave. Politically controlled slave. Tomato Tomahto. A thorn by any other name is still a thorn. Democrats nevr give up the slavery they thrive on. Democrats aim for and take accumulated capital. To many of them, all accumulated capital is evil and must be taken and the means of production fully controlled. They feel it. PCChaos Mar 12 2021 at 9:17 am Amen to that. Getting canceled is tantamount to slavery. They take away part of you because you expressed a disparate view, they shun you, they should all go to hell thinking others should obey them. Shooter 2.5 Mar 12 2021 at 7:57 am There’s no difference between owning a slave and importing desperate people willing to work for slave wages. Did anyone notice biden removed the sex trafficking act with an executive order? interventor Mar 12 2021 at 10:40 pm I’ve posted variations of this before. It still holds. Democrats are reverting to type – founding a neo- Old South. California is the new South Carolina. Add, Oregon, Washington state and Hawaii to complete the set. New York state and the New England states are the new border states like Delaware, Missouri, Kentucky, and Maryland were. The old south possessed a small extremely wealthy class, a tiny middle class, slaves and large numbers of whites and free blacks in poverty. The cotton plantation owners and cotton trade factors such as Lehman Brothers, made up the wealthy class. The small middle class included doctors, lawyers, larger shop owners and few others that catered to the wealthy. Slave labor depressed the wages of most others. Now, oligarch donors understand that hiring cheap labor is more cost effective than slavery. Slaves tend to work only enough to keep from being punished. Their owner must care for them. California’s oligarch class are mostly in IT, show business and a few industries. Lawyers and doctors, who cater to the aforementioned, form the upper middle class. The wealthy oligarchs use imported labor to depress IT wages at one end and unskilled labor to keep their mansions and well-manicured lawns – mimicking slavery of old. Which depresses the wages of a dwindling middle class. Add, rising taxes and the middle class becomes poor or leaves the state. California has one third of the nation’s homeless and those below the poverty line. But only 12 percent of the nation’s population.

Neanderthal JTC Mar 12 2021 at 1:28 am crap, ignore the double tap please. Tom Stockton Mar 12 2021 at 6:19 am No problem, Neanderthal JTC. The double tap makes sure you get your point across… Craig Mar 12 2021 at 1:25 am It’s not complex. Democrats want slaves, again. NotYetInACamp Mar 12 2021 at 3:06 am But they will not call them slaves anymore. Somehow this will progressively increase the dignity of mankind and solve the problem. (For the progressives, democrats) https://www.aol.com/lifestyle/why-dictionary-com-no-longer-130025434.html John Mar 12 2021 at 12:40 pm Interestingly the Framers did not refer to them as slaves either. They always called what we call slavery “involuntary servitude”. Halley Mar 12 2021 at 5:00 am “We’re nearing the end of politeness” – Ace The +80,000,000 MAGA Army was not formed to sheepishly acquiesce to brutish coups by fascist wannabes… Mike-SMO Mar 12 2021 at 5:45 am “Slavery” is a distraction. As usual, the Dems want someone else to do any actual work while, they collect the big money as “consultants”, and for “protection”. The “Mob” always liked that “protection” racket. The Dems just made it their own. Wasn’t even “cultural appropriation”, just a new suit. John Mar 12 2021 at 12:44 pm There are some purists who hate Lincoln for what he did and said, but he did hit the nail on the head when it came to the Democrat’s mindset: “You toil and work and earn bread, and I’ll eat it.” JTC Mar 12 2021 at 1:32 pm Exactly. That Rino and Joe “Abe” Biden have identical agendas, means, and methods. The First Rino was successful at it, will his New Blue namesake be? Randy Mar 12 2021 at 6:34 am I live in one of the “Blue Nightmare” States. We have the singular distinction of having not one, not two but three of the worst of the top ten worst mayors in all the United States, NYC, Massena and Rochester, NY respectively. Ain’t we just special? Rochester has shooting and stabbings almost nightly. One of the local radio stations has a shooting/stabbing dujour report every day. Of course all these “urban gun owners” have obtained said firearms lawfully…NOT! And of course we truly law abiding owners are the problem in our masters eyes… Jon Mar 12 2021 at 7:04 am pResident Xi * Robinette wants to put us all back in chains. My Way Or --> Mar 12 2021 at 8:24 am Anyone besides me remember what it meant when the word “Red” applied to a political activist, as a substitute for communist? Anyone? Bueller? That’s okay. I’m takin’ a day off, too. Note this: Pelosi can NOT handle the weight of her precious gavel any more. Can’t make the one-strike sound, wobbles badly with it in her right hand, and then puts it down. She is nearly done to a turn. I’m waiting for her to stumble over her own feet or say something that is just babble. It’s coming. That’s why I said we must be patient…. and stock up on fave snacks so that you can watch the show to the end. NotYetInACamp Mar 12 2021 at 8:38 am What election cycle did the main owned news systems change the colors of the Republican and Democrat parrties around so that the Democrats were no longer Communist Red and the Republicans no longer American True Blue? It was an intentional coordinated Press Media move? And Soros and European socialists and commies and such have been the go to experts in the many color revolutions that they have imposed across the world. The 300 Mar 12 2021 at 9:40 am It used to be blue for Republican states until 2000 because of Union blue during the Civil War being run by Republican Abe Lincoln. By 2000 however, the Democrats complained to their minions in the tail sniffing media that red for Democrat was a little too close to truth in advertising and they happily inverted it, getting that bit of commie stink off of their coconspirators. One month of Algore trying to convince the Supreme Court that his voters were too stupid to figure out a butterfly ballot designed by a Democrat cemented the Red/Blue labeling in the peoples’ minds. Another PR victory for the lapdog press, projecting Democrat crimes and ideology onto Republicans. JTC Mar 12 2021 at 12:55 pm Anything associated with that evil lying corrupt First Rino POS is spoiled, ruined and tainted forevermore…they can have their blue and we will take and embrace Blood Red as we battle the *exact same* cancellation of our MAGA culture as the CSA faced then…the theft of our assets and control of our people using “freeing the slaves“ as a cold heartless pretext…the parallel is amazing. Red is not the new black, it is the new blue. Too Tall Mar 12 2021 at 12:57 pm Through Ronald Reagan’s second election in 1984, the incumbent presidential party was always blue, and the other party red. In a hissy fit at the end of the night, Peter Jennings complained that the map “looked like a huge suburban swimming pool” and that the visual effect was calming, whereas a huge area of red would have been upsetting. Additionally, the mental association of communism with red along with Reagan’s hammering of the Evil Empire was taking a toll on the left. There was also a growing body of work in the studies of leadership, personality, motivation, and group dynamics, among other disciplines that had led to a kind of shorthand of “Cool Blue (Intellectual)” versus “Fiery Red (Emotional)” that was not helping the Left. Beginning with the 1988 election, the networks decided that Republicans would always be red. Halley Mar 12 2021 at 8:38 am IF (still a big if) PDT was, for who knows why, unable to deal with the depth of DC corruption and IF (even bigger if) therefore The Coup’s stolen “victory” was inevitable, then there may be a “bright” (dim but not total black) side to all this. Which is: we’ve learned the jaw-dropping extent of the cross-aisle criminality and Constitution-shredding in a way we’d never have known had they not unleashed the Dominion fix for JoBama. So – we have 4 extra years awake, hopefully, to the real problem. What can be done is the big question. On a list of 10 possible solutions, electing more Republicans doesn’t even come in at #11. JTC Mar 12 2021 at 12:25 pm CRA is #1. John Mar 12 2021 at 12:56 pm I’m not alone in saying things will get worse before they get better. The willful idiocy that led to turning over our children’s education to the Buddyocracy, who wanted nothing more than for the tykes to be gullible tax slaves, has led to this sad state of affairs. It will take generations, even under the best conditions, to purge the Thoughtless from enough of the electorate to get a government dedicated to the people it is supposed to serve rather than to itself. James/G Mar 12 2021 at 9:31 am Getting a little too dark(ahem), so might I suggest folk check out some non-political stuff? Keep reading DBD of course, but balance it out with some silly stuff. I like The Whiteboard by Doc Nichols. Today’s was good… As to Red being the new black… Yeah, sounds about right, but it’s more than just Right/Conservative/Moderates against DNC/PLD leftism. There’s the ‘New’ Jewish problem, which covers Catholics and Christians in general, Honest Science Vs New Science, the list goes on and on. Hell, I am an actual Conservationist-Preservationist, who among other things endorses frequent controlled burns and harvesting lumber, as a means of limiting wildfires and to eliminate the tick population. Try explaining that to some PETA or Greenpeace idiot sometime… JTC Mar 12 2021 at 12:23 pm The word “actual” makes all the difference… Whether for conservationist, conservative, liberal, red, blue, or even American, that actual modifier reclaims words and their meanings from those who intentionally appropriate and corrupt them. Actual Neanderthal JTC 😉 Pamela Mar 12 2021 at 2:55 pm Slavers Never Change. As an aside, never eat toast with Orange Marmalade near your keyboard. Too Tall Mar 12 2021 at 3:09 pm Orange Marmalade Bad? JTC Mar 12 2021 at 4:17 pm Ha! 🙂 But yeah, bagel schmeared with peanutbuttah and drizzled with orange blossom honey seems to have a deleterious effect as well… Pamela Mar 12 2021 at 5:17 pm No Orange Marmalade Good. New Cat wanting said toast caused sticky keyboard. James Gemind Mar 12 2021 at 3:24 pm Okay folks, the SCOTUS has a 12-Gauge semi auto shotgun pointed at them, because Pelosi is trying to overturn a CERTIFIED Election! These Morons are proving once again they’re contempt for the rights of citizens; https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/nancy-pelosi-opens-door-to-house-nullifying-iowa-election-result/vi-BB1euRdF?ocid=wispr They’ve refused to examine evidence concerning hundreds of thousands of votes and fraudulent mail-in Ballots, but now they’re supposed to hand Iowa over to the DNC/PLD because of 22 ‘Discovered’ ballots? Chris, I will leave it to you to decide whether this needs addressed by a strip by you… Everyone else, please remember, April 29th is Not My Presidents Day. JTC Mar 12 2021 at 4:51 pm As to SCOTUS, yeah toss the fucking turncoats (and petticoat) a softball so they can look all tough and constitutionally while the leftists get to keep all our stolen rights, freedoms, and our former republic itself. They’re not going to turn over a corn state election but they’ve got no compunctions about giving them everything else unheard and unchallenged. But we’ll see what they do with the most critical issue of their lifetime gig…the Second. I was hoping that the DimWits would go for it all in one lump so the judges would have to go thumbs up or down and expose themselves for all to see, but it looks like it will come before them piecemeal, the worst first, the *enumerated* exemption from regulation of private firearms transactions between free and legal citizens. I have less than zero confidence in our assembled black-robed traitors to do the right thing for anybody other than themselves. Sure hope I’m wrong because failure here damn near necessitates bloody rebellion. So what will Roberts and his assembled group of posers do? We’ll see. Be prepared. cb Mar 12 2021 at 3:50 pm New business ~ Charter Boating Accident, LLC: https://populist.press/here-it-is-ban-on-205-different-assault-weapons-this-is-war/ JTC Mar 12 2021 at 5:14 pm So…you can keep what you have but can’t sell/give/loan it to someone else. No way to know or track what you have though right, I mean all those NICS were destroyed right? And they would never dig out your 4473’s right? Right. Now we know the real reason the National Private Armory is under attack first and foremost. But common-sense “universal background checks” are to protect you from bad guys right? It’s for the children right? RIGHT? John M. Mar 13 2021 at 12:16 am HA! What do I have? What did I buy as a kid and a young adult before the 4473 became a thing? …what did my parents, aunts, uncles grandparents give me that they brought back from “the Great Wars?” …what have I traded for over the years? …and the most improtant question of all: This is a mobile society – we move all over the country all the time, but those 4473’s only show the address I was living at when I bought something. How many times have I moved since, and where to? Do I still have it? The biggest question of course is “Who is going to enforce it?” There may be some early casualties on both sides, but this whole thing will turn into an example of Irish Democracy.
