Interesting that Lent is upon us. I forced myself to watch about an hour’s worth of the Jack-Ass Party debate in South Carolina. That alone must clear me of at least a couple of centuries off my time in Purgatory.
Nonetheless, Comrade Sanders sure does make a lot of noise regarding his promised $15 an hour federal minimum wage.
Maybe someone said something on TV… maybe all the tumblers were lined up properly in my noggin, but I distinctly remember Bolshevik Bernie droning on about $29,000 and alleged “free” health coverage.
Anyone who works 37.18 hours per week X $15 an hour = $557.70 of pay per week.
$557.7 of pay per week X 52 weeks per year = $29,000.40 per year.
But on another of the official Sanders for president websites, the magic and maximum amount a person can make to qualify for “free” health care is any amount up to $29,000 a year.
Creating a 4 percent income-based premium paid by employees, exempting the first $29,000 in income for a family of four.
Hmmm… so if any given individual is only wage earner for his family of four, and also happens to work 37.18 hours per week (which is $29,000.40 a year), his “free” health coverage costs him four percent over his first $29,000 of his income. But just for the heck of it, let’s say mom also works 37.18 hours per week at $15 an hour.
Four percent of $29,000.40 means mom and dad must pay $1160.02 a year for their “free” coverage. Remember, even if mom and dad just so happen to have a sweet healthcare plan at work, Sanders kills all private health insurance.
In other words, this hypothetical family pays $96.67 a month for their “free” healthcare costs. Shitty health care, at that.
One other thing, Sanders attempts to paint his insurance scheme as cheaper than what folks pay now. Sadly for Bernie, he uses the worst case scenario. He ignores that many workers have some pretty sweet coverage through their unions, etc.
But Sanders will make all private insurance illegal. We all will now have the health coverage that most in Britain, Germany and Sweden have.
And it’s a fact that waiting upwards of eight months to finally have scheduled chemo in Britain simply isn’t all that rare. By then, it’s too late. The cancer has metastasized.
That’s the alleged “free” healthcare Bernie wants for everyone.
Chalk up another win for undercover videographer James O’Keefe. This time, the founder of Project Veritas managed to get a rather foulmouthed Iowa field organizer for the Sanders campaign, Kyle Jurek, stating more than a few violence-ridden threats if Bernie doesn’t win, both the Democrat Party’s nomination as well as the General Election.
Giving credit where credit is due would be the breakdown of some of the more serious of Jurek’s threats provided by reporter Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire;
On reaching people that he deems to be “fascists”: “The only thing that works, the only thing that fascists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.”
On what happens if Trump is re-elected: “F***ing cities burn.”
On if Trump supporters should be “re-educated”: “I mean, we gotta try, so like, in Nazi Germany after the fall of the Nazi party there was a s**t ton of the populace that was f***ing Nazified. Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f***ing people to not be Nazis. Like, we’re probably going to have to do the same f***ing thing here. That’s kind of what Bernie’s whole f***ing like, ‘hey, free education for everybody!’ because we’re going to have to teach you to not be a f***ing Nazi.”
On Soviet gulags: “There’s a reason Joseph Stalin had gulags, right? And actually, gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us that they were. Like, people were actually paid a living wage in gulags, they had conjugal visits in gulags, gulags were actually meant for like re-education.”
On what will happen if Sanders does not win the Democratic nomination: “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f***ing Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when they f***ing, and when the police push back on that, other cities will just f***ing [explosion sound and gesture]. … Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC convention. That’s all I’m gonna say. … We’re gonna make 1978  look like a f***ing girl scout f***ing cookout. Remember what happened when McGovern got f***ed in Chicago in 1978 ? Riots. F***ing people getting beaten by the cops. The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f***ing beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the National Guard for that s**t. I promise you that. If Bernie doesn’t, if they f***ing take Bernie from us, then we have nothing else left to lose.”
On using violence against those who use offensive free speech: “Whatever it takes, and that’s why they’re like ‘oh, anti-fascists are violent,’ it’s because we’re willing to go about and beyond what the law says is acceptable, like oh free speech, yeah like they try to be like ‘oh you’re against free speech’ and no, we’re not against free speech, we’re against f***ing hate speech, and if your speech is something that like these people shouldn’t exist, then I don’t give a f*** if it’s free speech or not, you don’t need, like free speech has repercussions. … Yeah, there are consequences to your f***ing speech, right? And if your speech is calling for the elimination of people based on race, or gender, or religious like for whatever reason, things that people can’t change, then you should expect a f***ing violent reaction and you deserve a violent reaction because that’s just not an acceptable thing. It’s not acceptable.”
On wanting to “throw down”: “I’m ready to throw down now. I don’t want to wait and have to wait for f***ing DNC [against] the billionaire class. The f***ing media, pundits. Walk into that MSNBC studios, drag those motherf***ers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets.”
On what will happen to those who oppose Sanders’ agenda: “Well, I’ll tell you what, in Cuba, what did they do to reactionaries? … Do you wants to fight against the revolution? You’re gonna die for it motherf***er.”

Especially in the run-up to the mid-term elections, Democrats are lulling the party faithful into a state of extra stupid by drilling into them the mantra, “Trump only gave tax cuts to the rich… Trump only gave tax cuts to the rich…”
From Bernie to Beto, from San Francisco to Fire Island, those fibbin’ libs are purposefully lying to their constituents in regards to President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
And for whatever bizarre reason, the Demo-drones are lapping it up.
For those folks, I have one reasonable question: Do you have the basic intelligence required to read and comprehend your tax information on your paystub? Of course, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt by assuming they’re actually gainfully employed.
How great is socialism? So great, that the minimum wage in the Workers Paradise of Venezuela was nearly doubled, but the same worker is now only pulling in a measly one and one-fourth penny (00.0125¢) per hour.
That’s right… the nation defended by a spectrum ranging from the airheaded to the completely useless (Sean Penn, Jamie Foxx, Oliver Stone, Naomi Campbell, Michael Moore, Jeremy Corbin, Bernie Sanders, Danny Glover, etc.) is now paying those in the government controlled workforce a whopping Bs. F 797,510 (bolívares fuertes), worth roughly $2.02 a month according to the Spanish language currency converter website DolarToday.com.
Despite both Left and Right leaning news services agreeing on the specific amount of money going to the Venezuelan people, both liberals and conservatives agree that things in the South American nation pretty much suck.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced a 40 percent increase to the minimum wage as of January, a move that will foment what many economists already consider hyperinflation in the oil-rich but crisis-stricken nation.
In his televised year-end address, leftist Maduro said the new wage level would protect workers against what he calls Washington’s “economic war” to sabotage socialism.
“Good news!” said the former bus driver and union leader, speaking next to a Venezuelan flag in a midday address.
Venezuelans will now earn some 797,510 bolivars a month, factoring in food tickets, or just over $7 on the widely used black market index. Millions will still be unable to afford three meals a day, while the increase is likely to stoke inflation further. Prices went up 1,369 percent between January and November, according to figures released earlier this month by the opposition-led Congress, which estimated the 2017 rate would top 2,000 percent. The Venezuelan government no longer publishes inflation data on a regular basis.
Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro has raised his country’s minimum wage by a further 40 percent, meaning public sector employees will now earn around two dollars a month in his seventh and final major hike of 2017.
“We have good news regarding the protection and stability of all the workers,” said Maduro in a televised address. “I am announcing the rise of the national minimum wage by 40 percent for all our doctors and public sector workers.”
The move means that working Venezuelans will now receive a basic salary of 248,510 bolivares, equivalent to $2.02 a month. On top of that, they are also handed an increased food ticket worth 549,000 bolivares worth $4.46, meaning their total income amounts to around $6.48.
As part of his socialist “Bolivarian revolution,” Maduro’s late predecessor Hugo Chávez would boast of Venezuela having the highest minimum wage in Latin America, equivalent to $372 a month.
However, inflation began to soar as early as 2007 and accelerated further after oil prices crashed in 2012. In recent years, Venezuelans have been seen carrying thousands of banknotes to buy the simplest of products, in scenes similar to Germany’s Weimar Republic or Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation crisis.
The government has responded by introducing higher denomination bank notes, although even the maximum note of 100,000 bolivares is still worth under one dollar.
Since the below video was first posted to Youtube in November 2017, to 100,000 bolivar note was worth $2.42. It has since shrunk in value to roughly 78¢.
Despite the media being completely in the tank for Hillary and the Democrats, there are certain images coming out of the Wells Fargo Center that can only be described as shocking. Even more shocking is the fact that the overwhelming majority of American news organizations are completely and totally ignoring such.

Martin Shkreli, CEO and founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals, has some colorful nicknames bestowed upon him by the press. The baby-faced multi-millionaire son of Albanian and Croatian immigrants has referred to himself as “the world’s most eligible bachelor,” but the press has tagged him with such colorful monikers as “pharma bro,” “biotech’s bad boy” and possibly the über-harsh “America’s most hated man.” Continue reading “‘Pharma Bro’ donated tens of thousands to the Democrats”→
While the list of Republican presidential candidates starts to look more and more like the New York City Yellow Pages, the situation in the Democratic Party could very possibly be described as an increasingly paranoid Hillary Clinton looking over her shoulder. As the Fox News Channel’s chief White House correspondent details, the Clinton campaign is “increasingly nervous” that socialist Bernie Sanders isn’t the only threat to what was previously seen as a party nomination that was her’s for the taking.
While he represents the voters of the Green Mountain State in the US Senate, Bernie Sanders has a stereotypical Brooklyn accent that’s so thick it could slice through a three pound pastrami sandwich all by itself. And as reported by the National Journal news portal on April 30, 2015, Sanders made it official today that he’ll make a run at being the first person with a working-class New York City dialect to make it to the Oval Office.
Responding to the ever-widening “secret death list” Veterans Affairs (VA) scandal, on of the Senate’s leading liberals has not only blocked legislation aimed at fixing fundamental problems within the VA’s health care system, he’s also let little doubt to exactly how he feels of the accusation that scores of vets have died due to administrative cover-ups that have resulted in medical care being needlessly withheld. As reported by The Washington Free Beacon on May 22, 2014, Vermont’s junior US Senator, Bernard “Bernie” Sanders, has effectively frozen in committee the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act (VAMAA), which was aimed at giving the Secretary of Veterans Affairs sweeping in clearing out bureaucratic dead wood.
