It’s Better to be Hated by Liberals Than Have Their “Help.”

Townhall.com ^ | August 5, 2017 | John Hawkins 

“Liberals do not believe in the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness which are American ideals, or at least they used to be. If you love freedom, then you will be hated by the modern liberal who believes that government should regulate individual freedom. If you love freedom and believe that the state does not own you, then leftist hate should be a goal, not a fear.” – Dr. Helen Smith

“I thought of what Daddy had said when I asked him why he’d never gone on public assistance. ‘Because they take away your manhood,’ he said.” – Clarence Thomas

Most liberals are hateful people. As hateful as Nazis. As hateful as KKK members. As hateful as Fred Phelps and his God hates f@gs wackos, who are, come to think of it, Democrats. Liberals are as much defined by whom they hate as what they believe in.
They hate straight, white males and non-liberal white people in general. They hate Christians. They hate Republicans in general and conservatives in particular. They hate women who don’t tow the feminist line. They hate the wealthy, business owners, bankers and stockbrokers. They hate southerners, gun owners, soldiers and cops. They hate gay Americans and minorities who don’t want liberal help.
The Left is no longer subtle about its hatred. It comes shining through like a beacon on a black night. Liberals hurl abuse at these people, attack them on social media and reward liberals who make the most vicious attacks on those groups.
Yet, over time, liberal complaints have become a badge of honor. In fact, if there aren’t liberals lobbing hate at you, you’re probably doing something wrong.
If you look at the groups liberals hate the most, you’ll usually find they’ve got their sh*t together. What groups of people do liberals believe it’s okay to discriminate against based on their skin color? Whites and Asians. Which two racial groups are doing best in America? Whites and Asians. Who are the most competent people in America? The ones you’d want on your side if things got bad because they know how to make things happen? Business owners, cops and soldiers. Because they live in the real world where they must make tough choices, they’re detested by liberals who snipe from the sidelines while avoiding the tough, dangerous dirty work those groups have to do. Christians? The fact that they try (and sometimes fail) to make their lives better by adhering to a strict moral code makes them hated by liberals who have no code at all. Gun owners are willing to take responsibility for their own safety by learning how to use a potentially dangerous tool. Liberal hatred of stockbrokers is a favorite of mine because it reminds me of one of my favorite stories from the liberal Occupy protests.
When the Occupy hippies gathered outside the Chicago Board of Trade building to yowl about how unfair it was that stockbrokers make so much money, the traders responded by showering them with McDonald’s job applications. Of course, even that cruel joke (Go get a job at McDonald’s) makes more sense than the liberal solution, “Go to a protest to complain that other people make more money than you.” This is so typical for the Left. You think bankers and stockbrokers make too much money? Then maybe you should be a banker or stockbroker.
Of course, that’s a conservative solution. Go forth and take responsibility for making your own life better. In fact, the very reason that conservative minorities like Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and Herman Cain are hated by liberals is because they’re living examples of that message.
Meanwhile, how do liberals “help” minority Americans? How’s Compton looking these days? How about Chicago? Flint, Michigan? Liberal “help” means living in poverty in terrible neighborhoods, but always having someone else to blame for your failed life. It means feeling angry, victimized and hated by people who’ve never thought twice about you while liberals promise to help you by tearing down statues of Confederate generals. That doesn’t put money in your pocket, but it makes cosmopolitan liberals feel better about themselves.
This is usually how liberal “help” turns out for people.
Transsexual men, you don’t have a mental illness! Mutilate yourself through surgery and libs will claim that the guys who don’t want to date you and the women who don’t want to share a bathroom with you are bigots! Lord knows you wouldn’t want to suggest mentally ill people get psychological treatment instead of life-altering surgery.
Liberals “help” the poor by raising the minimum wage, but shrug their shoulders when it inevitably causes large numbers of poor Americans to lose their jobs. Conservatives who quite correctly predicted that would happen are called heartless.
Liberals will hand you welfare, food stamps and public housing. You just have to give up your pride and self-reliance in exchange. It’s like that scene from 300, where Xerxes says to Ephialtes, “Unlike the cruel Leonidas, who demanded that you stand, I require only that you kneel.” It’s conservatives who want people to stand on their own two feet and liberals who need their adoration in return for their pathetic “help.”
Liberals love to see women kill their babies so much that Susan Smith should be their patron saint, but are they going to be there for those women down the line when they’re alone one day, thinking about how they killed their own child? Yet, conservatives who encourage sexual responsibility are mocked and those who oppose killing children are called “anti-choice.”
Lefties love to encourage college kids to act like snowflakes. Why, their tender ears can’t be expected to listen to contrary opinions! So, what happens when little Jimmy the Snowflake walks into a work environment where nobody cares about his opinion, what offends him or his personal problems? Next thing you know, little Jimmy is living at home with mom and dad again because he can’t hold a job. How about exposing these kids to contrary opinions and refusing to treat them like they’re made of glass? Apparently, that’s cruel and horrible!
You want an easy way to tell if someone is a loser at life? All you need to do is look for the people who need liberal “help” to make it. Want an easy way to tell when those same people are pulling their lives back together? Watch to see when they don’t want any more “help” and want to start taking care of themselves. Liberalism is for poor people who are content to stay poor. Conservatism is for poor people who want to make a better life for themselves. Lefties love to tell you that they’re looking out for the most disadvantaged people in society, but they never want to admit that their “help” may be the biggest disadvantage those people have.

The problem with capitalist breadlines

People's Cube ^ | 08/03/2017 | People's Cube 

It is a revolutionary truth that life in the United States is awful. Workers, minorities, and Democrats are oppressed at every corner, and there is a struggle to acquire even the most basic of necessities.
So it was with some pleasure I noted today a line of well-dressed upper class people standing in line to buy bread. (Picture Starbucks)
"Ahh, here is the truth of the matter," I thought to myself. "The rich and poor alike must stand in a breadline to acquire even simple foodstuffs." Here was conclusive proof that capitalism failed to provide a proper distribution of goods.
Needing bread myself, I got into the line, and expected to be standing there for a few hours. Much to my surprise, the line moved quickly, and I figured they had already sold out of their limited allotment of bread. Instead, I grew increasingly confused. Not only was the shop well stocked, they were even baking more and had a disturbing array of luxury goods available at nominal costs to purchase. Perhaps I had wandered into a store meant only for the ruling elite of the city? No, for there was a homeless woman sitting at a table drinking coffee and eating a pastry, and being treated with the same care as every other customer.
And the bread! There were many varieties, some even made from uncommon grains, or baked for special dietary needs. Others were handcrafted artisanal loaves, and were only a dollar or two more than more standard fare.
I ran out of the shop in terror. What sort of insane world had I walked into? What kind of twisted society creates a breadline for capitalists, and then produces an abundance of low-cost goods that are both quality and within the reach of all members of society?
I am convinced it was a sort of Potemkin Bread Store - strictly for propaganda.
My quest to find a true breadline and poorly stocked store continues, and I still cannot find one. Is this all a horrible vodka-fueled nightmare of a world where capitalism has taken over? Somebody please help me!

"How many of you love your husband?"

A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands.
The women were asked, "How many of you love your husband?" All the women raised their hands.
Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?" Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn't remember.
The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband - "I love you, Sweetheart"
Next the women were instructed to exchange phones with one another and read aloud the text message they received in response to their message.
Below are 11 hilarious replies. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are a sign of true love. Who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way?
1. Who the hell is this?
2. He, mother of my children, are you sick or what?
3. Yeah, and I love you too. What's wrong?
4. What now? Did you wreck the car again?
5. I don't understand what you mean?
6. What the hell did you do now?
7. Don't beat around the bush, just tell me how much you need?
8. Am I dreaming?
9. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die.
10. I thought we agreed you wouldn't drink during the day.
11. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn't she?
Kinda tugs at the heart, doesn't it?

Cutting Immigration in Half Would Make Americans Wealthier!

Breitbart.com ^ | 4 Aug 2017 | John Carney 

The bill to curb immigration supported by President Donald Trump would add to the wealth of Americans. Trump on Wednesday announced his support for legislation proposed by Senators Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., that would cut legal immigration into the United States by half and grant entry based on education, the ability to speak English, and jobs skills.

While reducing immigration would cut overall U.S. economic growth by reducing population growth, gross domestic product per U.S. resident would grow, according to an analysis of census and economic data by Breitbart News.
Immigrants are responsible for about half of the population growth in the U.S. This population growth contributes to the growth of the labor force and therefore to Gross Domestic Product. According to Joel Prakken of Macroeconomic Advisers, the reduction in the labor force from immigration curbs would “take two to three tenths of a percentage point off GDP growth every year over the next decade.”

See link for chart.
This chart shows how GDP per capita under existing law would likely compare with GDP per capita under the Cotton-Perdue bill, known as the RAISE Act.
Cutting immigration in half will grow GDP per person in the U.S.
What’s more, it’s likely that more of that additional wealth would accrue to the benefit of working class and poor Americans. New immigrants tend to compete with low income natives and earlier immigrants for less-skilled positions, putting downward pressure on wages. The reduction of immigrants will likely force employers to bid up the wages of these workers. As a result, these workers will receive a higher portion of national income.
