Before the pilgrims left Europe, they planned to live in a communal society. Within 3 years, their socialistic experiment proved to be lacking in every way. Progressives claim they are “progressing” or “moving forward” to a better society. In reality, the system they embrace already failed in America 400 years ago.
In 1620, William Bradford was in charge of the plans to the New World. He knew the 50 Separatists could not do it alone. They needed financial help. Bradford found numerous tradesmen and servants willing to join in their pilgrimage, but he still needed money. Several “adventurers”, or investors, agreed to finance the journey. But first, they required a plan for repayment.
Bradford and the investors composed a set of bylaws for the colony. For the first seven years, the colony would live in a communal system. The bylaws required all goods, food, clothing, and profits be placed in a “common stock”. Anyone needing supplies could take them from this community supply.
“The persons transported & ye adventurers shall continue their joynt stock & partnership togeather, ye space of 7 years … during which time, all profits & benifits that are gott by trade, traffick, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means of any person or persons, remaine still in ye comone stock untill ye division. …That all such persons as are of this collonie, are to have their meate, drink, apparell, and all provisions out of ye comon stock & goods of ye said collonie.”
According to the bylaws, at the end of seven years the investors would receive their payment. At that time, the “adventurers” and the people would equally divide all capital and profits. This included houses, land, goods and livestock.
“That at ye end of ye 7 years, ye capitall & profits, viz. the houses, lands, goods and chatels, be equally devided betwixte ye adventurers, and planters.”Bradford recorded the colonists’ experiences in Of Plymouth Plantation. He described how their society failed by 1623. But more importantly, he told how they fixed it.
“The failure of that experiment of communal service, which was tried for several years, and by good and honest men, proves the emptiness of the theory of Plato and other ancients, applauded by some of later times – that the taking away of private property, and the possession of it in community, by a commonwealth, would make a state happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser than God.According to Bradford, the communal experiment proved “to breed much confusion and discontent”. Furthermore, the economy greatly slowed down.
The healthy, younger men resented others benefiting from their labor. They considered it unjust. The older men found the handouts to be humiliating and disrespectful.
“For the young men who were most able and fit for service objected to being forced to spend their time and strength in working for other men’s wives and children, without any recompense. The strong man or the resourceful man had no more share of food, clothes, etc., than the weak man who was not able to do a quarter the other could. This was thought injustice. The aged and graver men, who were ranked and equalized in labor, food, clothes, etc., with the humbler and younger ones, thought it some indignity and disrespect to them.”
The women felt force to serve men other than their husbands. They equated it to slavery. Many husbands refused to tolerate such treatment of their wives.
“As for men’s wives who were obliged to do service for other men, such as cooking, washing their clothes, etc., they considered it a kind of slavery, and many husbands would not brook it.”In Bradford’s opinion, the communal system broke the natural, respectful relationship people should have with each other. Forcing people to be equal when they know they are not does not eliminate inequality, it embellishes it.
“If all were to share alike, and all were to do alike, then all were on an equality throughout, and one was as good as another; and so, if it did not actually abolish those very relations which God himself has set among men, it did at least greatly diminish the mutual respect that is so important should be preserved amongst them.Bradford believed their faith minimized their hardship. Regardless, he stated the fault lies with the system, not the people.
“And would have been worse if they had been men of another condition. Let none argue that this is due to human failing, rather than to this communistic plan of life in itself”.
Bradford explained God recognized “all men have this corruption in them”. Therefore, “God in His wisdom saw another course fitter for them”.
With the goal to “raise more corn, and obtain a better crop than they had done”, each family would farm their own crops on their own land.
The Governor “allowed each man to plant corn for his own household.” He gave each family their own plot of land.
The pilgrims were free to benefit from the fruits of their labor. This motivated them to work harder than ever. As a result, they produced even more crops than they imagined.
“This was very successful. It made all hands very industrious, so that much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could devise, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better satisfaction.”The women felt their chains removed. They freely and willingly became equally productive citizens along side their husbands.
“The women now went willing into the field, and took their little ones with them to plant corn, while before they would allege weakness and inability, and to have compelled them would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.”Progressives honestly believe Utopia can be achieved by spreading the wealth around. Bradford’s documentation of the Plymouth Colony illustrates that a communal system failed with less than 100 people. With a nation of 350 million, it would be a complete disaster.
The Plymouth community turned things around and benefited with pure capitalism. When people are free to not only produce, but to keep the results of their work, the entire society benefits. America proved this until Progressive Democrat Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson and Barack Obama handicapped capitalism with endless social programs.
This is not progress. It’s a regression towards a failed system Americans rejected four centuries ago. Americans rejected it again with the defeat of Hillary Clinton. The election was a repudiation of Obama’s socialistic system.
This Thanksgiving we can be thankful that our eight-year experiment with a communal society will be ending very, very soon. Trump promises to remove regulations and social programs chocking capitalism. If that comes to pass, we will see prosperity in our country not seen for decades.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
oped: Hey wait just a minute here and who pray tell is going to pay this Mexican Cement Company ?
The Mexican government or We the People? hmmm maybe DJ Trump will... then again nope...and do we the people get any jobs out of this? wth'
Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico was a massive sticking point with the leftists of the nation, but now support is flooding in from across the border.
Trump’s bold promise to make Mexico pay for the wall my still take some diplomatic wrangling on the United States’ part, but at least one corporate entity in Mexico is ready to mobilize and start building.“A Mexican cement maker is ready to lend its services to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to build the wall he wants to erect on the southern border of the United States to curb immigration.
“‘We can’t be choosy,’ Enrique Escalante, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) said in an interview. ‘We’re an important producer in that area and we have to respect our clients on both sides of the border.’
“The campaign of the New York businessman who has never previously held public office was widely reviled in Mexico.
“Parts of the border are already divided by high fences, and a huge part of the boundary runs along the Rio Grande river.
“Based in Chihuahua, a large northern state bordering Texas and New Mexico, GCC is one of the biggest construction materials companies in Mexico. It generates around 70 percent of its sales in the United States, where it also has three plants.”
Trump’s business savvy certainly had some effect on the attitude of many construction businesses pursuing infrastructure upgrades along the border. With a successful businessman in the White House, the country is surely going to see some massive renovations over the next 4 years.

I was surprised to read the following Thanksgiving Proclamation by the President of the United States, because it clearly violates the principle of the separation of church and state:
“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.
“Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable inter-positions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war – for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted – for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
“And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us – and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
“Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
“George Washington, President”
President George Washington was not concerned with violating the separation of church and state, because it did not exist. It was not (and is not) in the Constitution. It was not a law passed by Congress (nor has any such law been passed since his time). It was an invention of an activist court, improperly interpreting the Constitution.
Mr. Washington expressed the feelings of the people of the United States. And I believe that the majority of the people in the country would still identify with this Proclamation, in spite of the continuous attempts at brain-washing them by the Liberal media.
As I read through this Proclamation, I remembered that almost every president throughout our nation’s history has expressed similar thoughts – and not just at Thanksgiving. Most of our presidents have been men who recognized that without the hand of Almighty God on our nation, we would be like most nations on this planet – lost and without direction.
Unfortunately, much has changed in the United States in recent years. We have been told that God is no longer welcome in our public life. Expressing faith and belief in the Word of God has been deemed “hate speech.” And Obama has declared that America is not a Christian nation.
We would do well to remember that this exceptional country was founded as a Christian nation, and that it has been abundantly blessed because of a few important things:
1) We have acknowledged God’s hand and blessing on us, and have been thankful to Him for that.
2) We have sent more missionaries to spread the Gospel than any nation in history.
3) And we have blessed Israel, as God has commanded us in His Word to do.
If we will turn our faces toward God again – and choose leaders who trust and believe in the Bible – the Lord will bless us again. God’s word, as given in II Chronicles 7:14 is as true today as it was when it was written thousands of years ago…
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

oped: I'm sorry but this is wearing thin~getting old..I realize this is DJ Trump's style to jump out there...rant and rave on a topic...wet his finger and place it in the wind to see which way the wind blows on said topic. Within days sometimes within just hours he starts back peddeling!
Then he moderates his comment to adjust to the proverbial wind. I'm old fashioned, say what you mean and mean what you say...not test the water as all politicians do, example being : John Kerry: "I was for it~before I was against it" "I was against it~ before I was for it" IMHO if you don't mean it then don't freakin' say it in the first place...back peddeling is just plain annoying to say the least~dishonest also comes to mind!
The story of Hillary Clinton and her Foundation may not fade form the headlines after all. Even after President-Elect Trump softened his tones toward her, other options are still viable. Her Clinton Foundation has not been cleared. The FBI is still investigating and Congress will not let it go. She may even become a pawn for Trump to use against the Democrats. This is not over so hide and watch.
As Written By Joe Newby for Conservative Firing Line:
While appearing on Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway confirmed that the incoming Trump administration will not pursue charges against Democrat Hillary Clinton for violations of the Espionage Act and her use of an illegal private email server. The announcement sparked a great deal of criticism, but, WND reported, a Trump insider says Clinton could still face prosecution.
According to Jerome Corsi:
Once Trump has taken the oath of office, the insider noted, the decision to launch an investigation rests with the attorney general, who has the power to convene a criminal grand jury or appoint a special prosecutor.
Further, Congress has the power to investigate and recommend the Department of Justice pursue a criminal prosecution.
Regarding the Clinton Foundation and allegations of “pay to play,” state attorneys general in states where the charity is registered also would have the authority to launch an investigation…..

It’s seems as though September 2015 was about a century ago. It was back then that I wondered aloud whether America was ready for a president who uses terms like “perv” and “sleazebag”. Here was my conclusion: Is his [Donald Trump’s] in-your-face approach enough to win him the election, much less the GOP nomination? It’s hard to say, but clearly it won’t be viewed uniformly as a deficit.
That … er — “candid” side of Trump, which largely disappeared in the waning weeks of the election, reportedly emerged again yesterday during a much-publicized media summit at Trump Tower. From the New York Post:
“It was like a f−−−ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing-down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big boardroom and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful, dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room, calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.
There’s a lot to unpack there, so let’s start with CNN…
Read the Rest of the Story at Liberty Unyielding…
The election of 2016 has just plain wore me out...I digressed and gave the benefit of the doubt to Donald Trump...and voted for him...now I'm feeling not so good about my decision ( albeit a Clinton was no option to consider)...his flip flops/back flips on his campaign promises are giving me heart burn...
I'm getting close to throwing in the towel on voting in the future, ya can't trust any politician they are one and the same...maybe it's time to just trust my rifle ,my pony and me...and head off into the wilderness...become a prepper and wait for the inevitable conclusion... dunno just not feeling so hot now!
I'm getting close to throwing in the towel on voting in the future, ya can't trust any politician they are one and the same...maybe it's time to just trust my rifle ,my pony and me...and head off into the wilderness...become a prepper and wait for the inevitable conclusion... dunno just not feeling so hot now!
Since the election his transition has become 'You can't please everyone so you have to please yourself'
Not sure if his cabinet selections have become 'Keep your enemies close' or he is just showing his true colors. At any rate he is definetly ticking off those who put him in office ( they/we are feeling played) by rewarding those who opposed him! The song "Garden Party" was the last concert by Rick Nelson 1985 before his plane crashed on the way home...Just food for thought Donald..you had better stop all the flip flopping/back flips on the promises you made on the campaign trail...you are starting to sound more and more like the establishment you claim to have ran against!
Enjoy the song and listen carefully to the lyrics it is quite telling!

Black Lives Matter gets all the press, but it’s the Bureau of Land Management that has destroyed the very fabric of Americana
Ed Note: Originally, I deployed this video series under the moniker “Operation Wildlife Rescue.” But with the election of Donald Trump, we can now push to end these home-wrecking agents of the United Nations altogether.
As most of the population who loves freedom, rule of law and Constitutional principles celebrates the victory of President-Elect, Donald J. Trump, there is one group who may be celebrating a bit louder than most; especially if DJT makes good on his campaign promises. The group I am referring to is the American Rancher, whose treatment is one which encompasses the true meaning of deplorable.
Unless you live in a state on the left side of the Mississippi River, you are likely unaware of the oppressive nature and actions of the Bureau of Land Management against the good men and women of the West. Certainly, the Cliven Bundy stand-off made international news, but the woes of Cliven, Carol and the rest of the Bundy family merely scratches the surface of the criminality perpetrated by our own Federal Government; via their proxies the Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service and a variety of other un-constitutional agencies.
During the run-up to his subsequent election, Donald Trump promised to end all federal agencies that rob Americans of their livelihood and property. The police-state intimidation tactics of the BLM have been responsible for wrecking homesteads that have been in some families for generations, and certainly qualifies as one of those agencies that need to be eliminated. To that effort, I will now continue to release the cache of videos that I have “in the can” from my two trips through Nevada this summer. I hit the pause button after the Republican Convention because election news sucked the air out of all other news stories.
As the election cycle progressed in 2016, the criminality inside organizations like the Justice Department and, to a lesser extent, the FBI finally became apparent to the “average Joe” American. If you are one of those people, trust me when I tell you that the same “culture of criminality” that now infects those once-honorable agencies has been present out West for years. So with that in mind, please enjoy the next video in the series, which I have linked below.

John Kerry wants everyone to know that the United States stands in “solidarity” with the transgender community around the world.
The Washington Examiner reports – Secretary of State John Kerry honored the memory of transgender individuals who lost their lives to “senseless acts of violence” on Sunday and said the U.S. stands in “solidarity” with the community around the world.
“Transgender persons around the world are targeted by rising levels of violence fueled by hatred and bigotry,” Kerry said in a statement recognizing Transgender Day of Remembrance. “This is a global challenge and we all must do more to protect transgender persons on the basis of equality and dignity.”
He said that in the U.S., the Constitution “enshrines freedoms of peaceful assembly, speech and association, and it affirms that everyone has equal protection under the law.”
“Around the world,” he added, “human rights and fundamental freedoms are recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that every person is born free and equal in dignity and rights. Every person includes transgender women, transgender men, and other individuals who face marginalization on account of their gender expression or gender identity.”
But, they feel no solidarity with parents of children who do not wish to have them share bathrooms/locker rooms with members of the opposite sex??
They feel no solidarity with Americans who are fearful of they myriad of threats posed by undocumented, hastily screened illegals and/or refugees??
To say that this administration is out of touch with the pulse of everyday America is an understatement. This is not to say that we should tolerate violence, hatred or bigotry. But, it could be argued that the push for ‘human rights’ for transgenders (as for illegals or for refugees) has degraded human rights for the majority of the population.
The definition of solidarity is “unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group.”
Perhaps John Kerry should pay a little more attention to the definition of the word. Because, in recent times, the best example of true solidarity was the solidarity displayed by average Americans, when we acted as ‘individuals with a common interest’ to deny the continuation of these insufferable (even unconstitutional) policies and opinions.
Monica Peterson was found dead, and the suspicious circumstances do not add up. She was investigating for the Human Trafficking Center (HTC) in Haiti. However, she is believed to have also stumbled upon information that linked the Clinton Foundation to the trafficking of children.
WikiLeaks also released emails that connected the Clintons to pedophilia.
Reddit User billclintonisarap1st has reportedly uncovered this new mysterious death linked to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation in so much detail, it can’t be denied. Her friends are still searching for answers but know the answer deep down…
Hillary Supporters Threaten Members of Electoral College: ‘I’ll Put a Bullet in Your Fat F***ing Mouth’ if You Vote for Trump!
by Philip Hodges
If it weren’t for the Electoral College, New York City and Los Angeles would determine every national election outcome. There would be practically no point in Middle America even voting. Talk about voter suppression.
When we vote in the primary, it’s not much different. We have delegates who go to local and state conventions, and eventually the national convention to vote for the nominee.
As much as people have been trying to say our country is under a mob-rule system of government, that is not the case, and it never has been. We are a Constitutional Republic.
Or at least, that’s what was intended. Following the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin stated that they had created “a Republic…if you can keep it.”
People only want the Electoral College scrapped, because their side lost. That’s obvious.
They think they can game this “unfair” system to their benefit by convincing members of the Electoral College to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton. In fact, there’s a petition to that effect on Change.org that’s gotten nearly 4.5 million signers.
One way these Hillary Clinton fanatics are trying to “convince” electors to violate their respective state laws and break the rules by switching their votes from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton, is by threatening to kill them. I suppose that’s one way to do it. And we’ll find out next month if their strategy worked.
The Detroit News reported on one such elector from Michigan who’s bound to vote for Donald Trump. His name is Michael Banerian:
“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”
The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth. Banerian said he deleted the rest of the emails and messages “because as you can imagine they’re clogging up my email.”
“Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote,” said Banerian, a political science senior at Oakland University and youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party. “The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”
Think the “real news” media is going to cover something like this?

via: UFO Blogger
In March of 1995, Walt Disney Television aired a most intriguing one-hour television special on UFOs titled Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland. This highly unusual UFO video special presents UFOs and alien visitation to our planet as a matter of fact. Though the film's existence is acknowledged by the respected website of the Internet Movie Database, you will not find it available anywhere for purchase.
Those who tracked this incredible production state that it was shown only once, and with no advance notice on stations in only five US cities.
At first glance, this unique Disney television special appears to be an elaborate promotion of a scary New Tomorrowland ride on alien encounters which was about to open at Disney World. But on closer inspection, it is much more. The entire program, which opens with a short segment by Disney CEO Michael Eisner, does not even question the existence of UFOs and a major UFO cover-up. In fact, at times it has a tone of ridicule towards those who still deny the existence of UFOs.
Considering the very limited showing and audience, and the highly unusual stance on UFOs taken, many suspect that this program was a probe to measure public reaction to news of the reality of visitation and interaction with various forms of non-human intelligent life on Earth. The 10-minute section on alien abductions seems particularly designed to scare viewers. For information that the abduction phenomenon may not be as scary as presented in this film, read about the thought-provoking documentary Touched, based on the careful research of Harvard Professor John Mack.
by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly
While blue states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan turned red for Trump, California turned a deeper shade of blue.Liberals claim to hate “walls,” but they’re working overtime to erect a massive wall between Hillary Clinton’s Utopia (California) and Trump’s America.
And there’s no longer any real resistance behind that big, blue wall that houses Hillary’s Utopia.
The now defunct California GOP lost even more seats in the Assembly, in what can only be described as a massacre.
The Republican stronghold of Orange County turned blue. Not that it matters anymore.
In order to remain relevant, the same GOP establishment that worked overtime to distance themselves from Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump took a hard left turn.
Big mistake. Huge.
In the year that Trump’s brand of politics — taking tough stances on hard-core issues that the GOP establishment would rather soft-shoe — was a winning formula, the California Republican establishment tried to blend in with the Democrats.
And the GOP lost its only claim to relevance — namely, staving off the supermajority so that Democrats could no longer binge spend, and then raise taxes to cover.
Forget the supermajority. The Democrats don’t need it to raise taxes anymore; they convinced voters to raise taxes themselves by voting for ballot measures to penalize two groups Democrats love to hate: “Big Tobacco,” and “Rich People.”
In Hillary’s Utopia, voters voted to tax cigarettes an additional $2 per pack in order to discourage smoking — cigarettes, that is. On the same ballot they voted to legalize — and, in essence, encourage — smoking as long as it’s marijuana, not tobacco.
In Hillary’s Utopia, voters extended 2012’s Proposition 30 — what the authors once dubbed a “temporary tax increase” on the so-called “rich” (high wage earners and business owners) — for another 12 years.
What they don’t tell the hardworking Californians fooled into voting for it? The money from this confiscation of capital will be used for to pay for, among other things: “free college tuition” and healthcare for illegal aliens; segregated “safe spaces” on public college campuses; and the massive confiscation of entire classifications of guns and high-capacity magazines from law-abiding citizens.
In Hillary’s Utopia , the new restrictions placed upon law-abiding gun owners — such as a permit requirement complete with a background check simply to buy ammo —a re always sold as ways to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but they ignore reality. Criminals will simply buy ammo on the black market or out of state — and soon, “law-abiding” citizens-turned-outlaws will, too.
Adding insult to injury, Proposition 57 — brainchild of Governor “Moonbeam” Jerry Brown — reclassifying many violent crimes as “non-violent,” also passed.
In Hillary’s Utopia, the way to deal with skyrocketing crime is to set more criminals free while criminalizing the law-abiding, and taking away their only way of protecting themselves.
In Hillary’s Utopia, a lot of voters were shocked the day after the election when grocery stores began requiring $0.10 per bag if you want to carry home your groceries in paper or plastic. The reaction was instantaneous. Angry customers began pushing their carts to their cars with no bags—throwing all their purchases into cargo nets, boxes or miscellaneous compartments.
In Hillary’s Utopia, ignorance knows no bounds: many shoppers blamed Trump for the ten-cent bag tax. And he hasn’t even been sworn in yet.
Most people were completely unaware that Proposition 67 was a referendum on the plastic bag ban (SB 270) passed through the legislature and signed into law in 2014. The law banned the thin reusable plastic bags that are so convenient in favor of forcing consumers who failed to bring their own “reuseable” bags to pay $0.10 per bag for a much heavier grade, government-approved “re-useable” plastic bag or the old-fashioned recycled paper bag.
In Hillary’s Utopia, the simultaneous passage of Proposition 65 takes the money collected from the new plastic bag tax away from the grocers. Instead it will go to something called the Wildlife Conservation Fund.
What does that mean to the oblivious public living in Hillary’s Utopia? Grocery prices will go up — hurting those who can least afford it — to offset the $0.10 per bag “forced contribution.”
When working people find out that EBT & WIC (welfare) recipients don’t have to pay for bags, the outrage is universal.
In Hillary’s Utopia, everything is opposite reality. Up is down, left is right, fact is fiction — but above all, right is wrong.
Remove choices, steal from the working poor to subsidize the non-working entitled and illegal alien class, then spend, spend, spend. Raise taxes “on the rich” and the working poor every chance you get, to cover the overspending. Then sell all “free stuff” in exchange for votes. Get re-elected, and repeat.
Thank God that the rest of the country rejected Hillary’s Utopia.
Now if we could just keep Hillary’s Utopia contained between the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific forever so that it never escapes and destroys the rest of the country…
Sure why not...works for me:) It would be a breath of fresh air after the Clinton and Obama first ladies!
oped: Once again the reality of Climate Change: See the following :
Bottom Line: It's all about power and taxation..nothing to do with saving humanity from the dreaded whatever!: http://sharlaslabyrinth.blogspot.com/2015/12/with-dnc-its-all-about-taxesnot.html
By: MMN Staff
In this era of “he said, she said” the very idea of what is legitimate information vs. “fake” information has divided a nation; and a world. Climate change advocates site (‘flawed’) study after study, source after source, to validate their arguments. Climate change “deniers” (as we are so lovingly called) do the same. Fingers point, charges are made, and we get nowhere – except billions of dollars in the hole with little to show for it.
Obama, the globalist, has decided to announce (on the world stage) an eleventh-hour plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse emissions by 80 percent; a plan he knows full well has little chance of surviving in a Trump administration. So, why do it? Is it because he’s just that passionate about climate change?
The Washington Times reports – President-elect Donald Trump says he’ll abandon his predecessor’s global climate change deal, but that didn’t stop the Obama administration this week from rolling out a new, even more ambitious plan to cut U.S. emissions by 80 percent by 2050, undermining the incoming president on the world stage two months before his inauguration.
The latest proposal, which critics on Capitol Hill say is dead on arrival as soon as Mr. Trump enters the White House on Jan. 20, is being sold to the rest of the world as a long-term road map to U.S. greenhouse gas reductions. It comes as Mr. Trump is also under growing pressure from foreign governments and leading U.S. companies not to walk away from President Obama’s climate change vision.
Seeking to reassure the rest of the world, Secretary of State John F. Kerry told a United Nations climate conference in Morocco that U.S. progress against global warming essentially is permanent, all but ignoring the fact that Mr. Trump has made it crystal-clear he plans to scrap the administration’s climate agenda immediately.
As he touted the latest proposal to slash emissions even further, he also suggested to other world leaders that if the U.S. does reverse course and abdicate its leadership on climate change, Mr. Trump alone will be to blame.
