Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
One wonders where some of those liberals (a/k/a Progressives and Democrats) get their ideas or policies for our country - are they just ignorant or just stupid?
Look at what many of them say regarding these areas of debate. They are against erecting a border wall, for championing the mandating of a federal $15 per hour minimum wage, instituting a carbon emissions tax, and proposing the abolition of I.C.E. (Immigration Customs Enforcement) plus other hair-brained pronouncements put forth by the Democrats and their flunky's in the main stream media.
Let's take those areas I mentioned above one by one and try to figure out whether they are just ignorant or just stupid. As for the border wall, prominent Democrats were for it before they were against it. In 2006, Senator Joe Biden, Senator Barack Obama, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Senator Hillary Clinton were all in favor of building a border wall. You'd think that they were mouthing the words spoken today by President Donald Trump. What has changed since then, could it be that our president is now Donald Trump? Is the Pope Catholic?
Next, most of the Democrats are in favor of mandating a federal $15 per hour minimum wage, which goes against most economists who say that it would be a disaster for those workers the Democrats pretend they want to help. Many of the entry-level jobs for the inexperienced and minimally educated workers will no longer be available, as employers will cut back on their payroll costs and institute the employment of machines to take the place of workers. An idle, young, unemployed worker then will be more prone to getting involved in activities, like crime, that is a negative in our social construct.
In addition, The Democrats say that we must restrict carbon dioxide emissions, as if it was possible to control Mother Nature? They fail to tell us that carbon dioxide, instead of being a pollutant, is actually a plant and tree food that has increased food production around the world. The natural disasters that they claim “global warming” is responsible for have been with us since time began when fossil fuels were not used to any great extent. When they claim and prove that they can control Mother Nature, is the time we should listen to those hucksters.
And finally, as our country is being over run by illegal aliens, the Democrats want to abolish the very people who are sworn to protect us, the I.C.E. men and women who are in charge of enforcement of our immigration laws. Can you imagine the chaos that would ensue if I.C.E. was not in existence? Do you chalk that up to just plain ignorance or do you chalk it up to just plain stupidity by having a closed mind and a hatred for our president, Donald Trump?
It seems that most all those detractors are blinded to the facts by their loony liberal ideology. They seem to place party loyalty above the best interests of the country. I, therefore conclude, that their ignorance can be cured, but their actions point to them being just plain stupid.
