Playing Both Sides Against The Middle

So, what is up with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The NY Representative is going to be part of the nomination team for one Bernard Sanders at the Democrat convention tonight. Think that’s weird? Well, she DID endorse him for president. But wait a minute…

Wasn’t AOC named to co-chair Joe Biden’s “climate task force”? If so, what’s she doing nominating his rival for the presidency?

In this weirdest of presidential campaigns, this one takes an even crazier turn when you think of it. Here you have a freshman representative become one of the most outspoken and probably influential members of her party in her first two years in office. She steers her party markedly to the left, bordering her ideas on socialism at the very least. She endorses another socialist for president and campaigns with him. Then he pulls out of the campaign, and she says she’s going to back Joe Biden.

But wait…there’s more!

In this ever-twisting crazy year, the convention is not only put on hold for a month, but it’s also actually moved from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to people’s dens and bedrooms. It’s become a “virtual convention”. Delegates are going to be at home, not in some big convention center. And the four-day event will feature speakers…and that’s pretty much it. You’ll probably be able to see it most nights on most cable news channels, as the speakers speak between 9pm and 11pm Eastern time. And, in the midst of the craziness, AOC will be one of several “team members” that are going to put Bernie Sanders’ name into nomination for the presidency. How’s that for loyalty to Joe Biden?

Democrats have actually gone over the edge with their weirdness this year. They say you should be wearing a mask in public, and have chastised the President because he held a rally in Oklahoma, and most of the people didn’t wear a mask. Yet, when push comes to shove, it’s ok if you don’t wear a mask if you’re protesting or burning down buildings or looting…unless you want to hide your face from the myriad of security cameras trying to figure out who’s ripping off the businesses in town.

Politicians have kowtowed to the far left groups of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Hell, the NBA forces it’s players to wear BLM warm-ups, and have painted BLM logo on the floors of their empty arenas. And I bet 90% of the athletes couldn’t tell you more than a cursory explanation of what Black Lives Matter is all about. They know they’re for it!

Meanwhile, those of us that still have brain cells alive and well are left shaking our heads. Politicians are backing rioters and looters, unless and until they realize that everyone is leaving their cities for safer climes, and their tax base is eroding to zero. Then they want the rioting to stop. Oh, they’ll defund the police, but by God, you’d better not screw with their taxes! And when crime goes through the roof, they’re hoping that these “community partners” will be there to help. They’ve become total idiots.

No… to answer the question on everyone’s mind. I am going to be too busy to watch anything going on with the Democrats at their convention this year. I think I have to wash my hair that night!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. One thing is certain: I will not be counted for the Democrats. I will not be at any sporting event other than high school stadium events. I will not watch any of the Democrat speeches on anything but the Pluto app on my phone. And naturally, I look at caller id before picking up the phone.

    1. Yeah, I’ve started doing that with calls as well. Usually I do get a lot of calls from people that I would normally need to take, but hey…if I’m in a meeting I don’t answer it, so why should I answer it unless I know who it is? And I agree with you about the sports. Actually, I’ve thought about sending Nike and the Coca Cola Companies an email saying basically, Black Lives may matter…unfortunately, your company doesn’t.

  2. Remember the John Carpenter movie, “Escape from LA?” That’s what Portland, Seattle and many other cities will soon be like. Those cities will be filled with empty storefronts, vacant buildings and street gangs fighting over territory. The problem is, when they run out of things to steal and destroy in the cities, they’ll be coming to your neighborhood too seek their bounty.

    Doesn’t seem that anybody is doing anything about this. Not one word is being mentioned by the Democrats, so what does that tell you? It tells me it might be time to buy that Mossberg 590 pump action!

    I HATE seeing this crap and I weep for America!

    The Declaration of Independence says, “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,…” So does that mean that, in some of these States and cities “We the People” can kick those do-nothing politicians out of office and replace them?

    1. I don’t know as if I’d start bringing out the weapons just yet. You have to realize that the left’s whole philosophy is to tear down America to rebuild it as a socialist empire. We’re not quite there yet. Gotta give the GOP a chance! Hopefully, Americans are smart enough to see what is happening!

  3. “We’re not quite there yet?”

    How long are you willing to wait? I wouldn’t start shooting just yet but if the Biden crew wins the election we’ll be there, and that won’t stop the Progressive Left gangs pushing for more!!!! They can smell the blood in the water with a Biden/Harris win which will only cause them to increase the pressure.

    Just as we need border walls to keep the illegals out of the country, we need an armed neighborhood community to to keep the thugs out of the suburbs.

    I think many Americans are starting to see the importance of the 2nd Amendment!

  4. You need to stop viewing these rioters as “protesters” and see them for what they are, “Revolutionists.” The more they’re allowed to get away with the more intensely they will push! They’re not going to go away by themselves!

    By the time they show-up in your neighborhood it’ll be too late!

    1. I don’t look at them as protesters. I look at them as criminals. And until the “government” be it city, state, or federal decides to prosecute them for their crimes, they will get away with it. Your solution to the problem is to wipe them off the face of the earth. That’s not the solution.

  5. I thought I might watch some of it but after turning to the station and seeing a couple of minutes I decided I was never going to be counted as a viewer…it was a farce.

  6. Were the Confederate soldiers simply protesters, criminals, or a force attempting to take over the Country’s government agenda? That sounds like a war to me!

    And how long do you wait for the do-nothing “government” to prosecute them when it’s easy to see that no government is doing so? Few arrests, no jail, no bail! Revolving door justice that the government refuses to enforce, and ties the hands of the local police.

    Conservatives just don’t seem to have the fight instinct that the Democrats do. That’s why Republicans always resign from office and Democrats fight and stay in office!

    Time will tell which way this all goes. I hope you’re right but I’m not so optimistic that this is simply going to go away on its own! The local police departments are falling apart with early retirements and defunding and if the city governments and town councils don’t get it back in check, then who will, who’s left to defend YOU?
