A lesson in Socialism from none other that Mick Jagger

April 8, 2019

I’ll bet you didn’t know that before Mick Jagger (Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger), was a rock star he studied accounting at the London School of Economics. Neither did I. The school celebrated its 120th anniversary in 2016 and boasts to have produced the most billionaires of any European university. Heady stuff, but Jagger never graduated from LSE and didn’t become a billionaire, though his net worth according to Bankrate.com is $360 million.

Jagger was smart enough to dodge the tax man becoming a tax exile years ago while making piles of money like so many other popular British bands from the 60s. The members of The Rolling Stones moved to France in 1971 because the British socialist government initially took 90% of their earnings. Someone has to pay for all the free stuff in a socialized country. And later they eventually parked money in Holland when France got stupid with taxes. Yes, he’s a quick study and he’s figured out you don’t want to have major surgery in the UK either.

The years (he’s 75 years old!), the drugs, the women and the kids (8 kids with 5 different women), not to mention those great live performances have taken their toll and Jagger needed a new heart valve. Did he go back to England where they have socialized free medicine for all? “No, no, no” according to American Thinker, “he decided on the good ol’ USA, New York City”. Jagger reported on Twitter that he’s feeling much better now and on the mend – and also sent a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.

Sadly British patients are not getting what they need when they need it and this is the story with socialized medicine (Medicare for all). It’s not a socialized medicine heaven, it’s called hell. The National Health Service’s highly paid bureaucrats save money by denying medical treatment, hoping the patient dies instead of medically knowledgeable personnel trying to improve a patient’s life. This is what Breadline Bernie Sanders, AOC  and most of the Democrat presidential candidates have in mind for us. Oh yeah everyone will be covered, but no one will get care.

Be careful what you wish for!

The big thorn in the Democratic Party’s side –> AOC

February 16, 2019

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s platforms of choice are Instagram and Twitter (3.14 million followers on Twitter alone) and though she’s the polar opposite of the Donald, they both drive the Democratic Party crazy with their social media activity. Trump of course is Enemy #1, they’ll always hate him. But they didn’t expect their love and admiration for the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress, (wildly socialist-leaning that she is), to fade so quickly.

Here she is expressing joy over Amazon’s NYC exit

Her rollout of the ‘Green New Deal’ was so amateurish her own staff had to take down the web page, but not before it got massive coverage due to her social media footprint. Then they lied, saying they’d been hacked or some such hogwash, and the Republicans published it as a joke! Really? This is a little like Jussie Smollett’s fake hate crime where 2 white guys wearing red MAGA hats assault him at 2:00 AM in Chicago.

She’s chummed up to several other radical new Congresswomen who are causing their own little stir with rampant anti-Semitism. Though most of the Democrats in Congress even the Jews, are anti-Israel, pro-Palesianian and have a little anti-Semitism of their own going on.

But now AOC’s crossed Speaker Pelosi, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo & NYC mayor Bill de Blasio. If she didn’t single-handedly kill the Amazon-NYC second headquarters deal she certainly played a key role.

In doing so according to Thomas Lifson of American Thinker, “AOC has destroyed a key plan of the elders to revive a blue city and state that are hemorrhaging jobs, tax revenue, and middle-class residents. Even worse, she has sent a message to the tech plutocrats who are the new powers behind the scenes of the progressive left that any deals made with them cannot be guaranteed to come to fruition.” She did not fully realize that her political party (the Democrats) is now the party of big business, trading government favors of all sorts for massive political donations (and censorship of conservatives on internet forums controlled by the tech giants).

AOC didn’t like that de Blasio & Cuomo were giving Amazon 3 billion in tax breaks. What the cute little rocket-scientist doesn’t realize is New York City doesn’t have 3 B$ to give to her more justified causes. They made a deal to forego $3 billion in future taxes that would have been paid by Amazon. I myself don’t like the idea of any tax breaks to one of the highest valued tech companies in the world and Bezos doesn’t deserve and special favors either. Never mind that. The AOC v establishment Democrats going forward will be fun to witness.

Former Black Panther Sees The Light

May 23, 2014

Let’s see if I still remember how to do this (blog). I’ve sort of decided what good does it do, this blogging stuff? I suppose most people reading my blog are of like mind, so I’m only preaching to the choir. But more importantly, I’ve realized that sitting at the computer for hours at a time (yes, it takes quite awhile to put out a decent post unless I’m just blowing smoke), is not good for my body. I’ve got aching body parts and sitting too long is not good.

So here’s my new approach. I’ll post interesting stuff I’ve found in my daily scouring of the internet and hope it’s something of interest to others. A lot less work and time involved. Here’s today contribution:
