SH*T MY UNCLE SAYS: Democrat Disneyland

DEM_DIZNEE

 

BY WILLIAM C. HENRY Beam me up Bernie … and Elizabeth and Kamala and Kirsten and about a dozen other Democrat candidates! In what other-worldly universe, parallel or otherwise, does the following sound like a winning strategy? “Medicare For ALL, period, whether or not you like the private coverage you currently have OR might prefer to purchase instead;” “Open SMUSborders;” “Free healthcare and college educations for every American citizen AND everyone who enters this country legally or ILLEGALLY;” Did I mention COMPLETE sustenance as well? Oh, and yes, we’ll STILL maintain our military might! ALL of it fully paid for courtesy of the federal government (but YOU personally need not worry about having to fund it because that obligation is going to fall squarely on the backs of OTHERS as I’m about to further expound upon a few words from now) which is currently DROWNING in DEBT to the glub, glub of some 22 TRILLION DOLLAR$–very soon to rise to a mere 24 TRILLION DOLLAR$–which currently amounts to about $68,000 for every man, woman and child alive in America! But, not to Alfred E. Neuman about it, because that’s not OUR problem, right? Hell, we long ago shoved that off onto our GRANDCHILDREN’S and their CHILDREN’S wages, salaries, shoulders, budgets, pocketbooks and wallets which apparently politicians of ALL stripes, red, blue, and above all, YELLOW, don’t give one single SHIT about either because they’re not going to be around to have to worry about who’s going to have to pay it back! Anyway, obviously you fellows and gals to whom floating on this fiscal “cloud” applies haven’t even begun to recognize the fact that the vast number of VOTING Democrats in this broad, diversified country of ours inhabit the MIDDLE GROUND of reality’s turf, NOT the hinterlands! For Christ’s sake, candidates, wake up, stick a finger into the wind, recognize which way it’s actually blowing out there before you fully launch the kind of magic carpet that so many Democrat ballots simply are not and will not be willing to board!
