    politicians appeal to the poor people by making it the “fault” of the rich folks. “It’s not fair,” they say and losers and lazy people love to hear that. Pretty soon you have confiscatory taxes that send the rich into hiding with their money and the economy collapses. Rinse. Repeat.

    It’s good to buy a Rolex, particularly if you are a revolutionary. Sometimes when you need cash fast…say you want to buy a plane ticket out of the country…an expensive Rolex can be pawned for instant cash.

    Also, it can make a great bribe if some guard needs to “look the other way.”

    Personally, I’d get the gold versions. Worth more in crisis, plus the jungle heat generally won’t corrode the band….even after spending years in a shallow grave.

  • No surprise that liberal moonbat rags like the NYT are making the Georgia special election out to be a referendum on Trump when it is nothing of the sort. Rather it’s basically a contest to see

    1) How much money both sides can waste on it and

    2) How much voter fraud the Democrats can get away with to try and win it.

    This election in Atlanta has NO RELEVANCE to Trump at all. Neither did any of the others – which the Democrats said the same thing about… until they LOST THEM ALL then said they weren’t referendums on Trump after all.

    SCORES OF FARM WORKERS, ACTIVISTS MARCH ON BEN & JERRY’S

    Scores of dairy farm workers and activists marched Saturday on a Ben & Jerry’s factory to push for better pay and living conditions on farms that provide milk for the ice cream maker that takes pride in its social activism.

    OH MY GOD! Yet another example of Democrat moonbats not practicing what they preach? HOW CAN THIS BE?

    Protesters said Ben & Jerry’s agreed two years ago to participate in the so-called Milk with Dignity program, but the company and worker representatives have yet to reach an agreement.

    What? Democrat moonbats making promises they don’t keep? I’m SHOCKED!

    “We can’t wait any more. We are going to pressure them and see what happens,” said Victor Diaz, a Mexican immigrant now working on a farm in Vergennes.

    Mexican… immigrant? Did they leave out a word there? “Illegal”?

    “We are a values-led business. We frame ourselves as an aspiring social justice company,” said Greenwood.

    He left out that their calls for social justice were simply VIRTUE SIGNALLING, all talk, no substance. So moonbats would go ahead and pay 2x the price their products were worth. And they’ve been “talking about” practicing what they preach for years:

    The Milk with Dignity program was developed in 2014 by farm workers and the Vermont group Migrant Justice to ensure that farms provide them fair wages and working conditions and decent housing. In 2015, Ben & Jerry’s agreed to join the program. Since then, the two sides have been negotiating over the details.

    “We’ve been negotiating in good faith,” said Will Lambek of Migrant Justice. “It’s an unacceptable delay.”

    Ah… their support of illegal aliens – so they can get low wage workers to mistreat – is coming back to haunt them!

  • This investigation is finally turning where it needs to go perhaps?

    Senate Republicans are clamoring to hear from Loretta Lynch after former FBI Director James Comey raised concerns about her involvement in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

    Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are seizing on Comey’s testimony earlier this month that he was concerned over the former attorney general telling the FBI to refer to the Clinton investigation as a “matter,” which resembled the Clinton campaign line.

    It’s clear to anyone but Trump haters that there is NOTHING to the investigation of Trump RE: Russian election meddling.

  • So much to say…

    Why is no one investigating Attorney General Lynch’s Department of Justice for obstruction of justice in the Clinton email investigation. .. .There is compelling evidence to back up the claim that AG Lynch engaged in obstruction of justice.

    It’s clear to anyone but Trump haters that there is NOTHING to the investigation of Trump RE: Russian election meddling.

  • Thanks to decades of moonbats in power, as Venezuela goes (financially), so goes Illinois

    OFFICIAL WARNS ILLINOIS FINANCES IN ‘MASSIVE CRISIS MODE’

    This is no surprise. Whenever moonbats get in power they tend to overspend, then jack up taxes to cover it, hurting the economy and the people, burdening them with massive debt, just as occurred during the Obama years, unfortunately with some Republican collusion or at least the Republicans stood by and let it happen.

    The Illinois official responsible for paying the state’s bills is warning that new court orders mean her office must pay out more each month than Illinois receives in revenue.

    Comptroller Susana Mendoza must prioritize what gets paid as Illinois nears its third year without a state budget.

    A mix of state law, court orders and pressure from credit rating agencies requires some items be paid first. Those include debt and pension payments, state worker paychecks and some school funding.

    Mendoza says a recent court order regarding money owed for Medicaid bills means mandated payments will eat up 100 percent of Illinois’ monthly revenue.

    There would be no money left for so-called “discretionary” spending – a category that in Illinois includes school buses, domestic violence shelters and some ambulance services.

    The President Is Not Under Investigation

    An attorney for President Donald Trump was adamant on Sunday that the president is not under investigation, despite the president’s tweets this week referring to one as a “witch hunt.”

    It IS a witch hunt. Trump has done no wrong AND THEY KNOW IT but they’re trying to find ANYTHING they can (like 2 scoops of ice cream, for instance) to tarnish him. Soon we will find someone close to him makes their wife clean out the cat box or something, no doubt.

    And that being the case, nothing at all found against Trump himself, then why this fantasy nonsense?

    Pence parlor game: who would he pick for Veep?

    They’re about 8 years early for that question…

    And look at the crazy that’s coming out with it!

    They actually speculate Pence might pick JOE BIDEN? Bloomberg?

    Is Mike Allen a moonbat? Is AXIOS another lunatic left wing mouthpiece?

    I feel sorry for the Venezuelans but this is what they put in office. They still have oil, fertile lands, and good climate for farming. They can come back if permited.

    The problem is that they cannot.
    The government holds all the guns as well as tear gas grenades and Tanquetas.

    That should be an object lesson for the rest of the world..
