You would think with the resume of Joe Biden you'd be embraced by your own party. This ain't Joe's party any longer. It's the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. You wonder why the Democrats aren't rushing to Joe's defense over accusations of inappropriate touching? The truth is the socialist wing of the Democrat Party is behind the political assassination of Joe Biden.
Anvil Joe is what we call him. He's so gaffe-prone that he tends to be an anvil tied to the neck of the Democrats. And they know it. That's another reason he must be dispensed of. That and he's an old white guy. He even apologized on behalf of old white guys like himself. Didn't matter. Trying to distance yourself from who you are is impossible. So Joe must go away.
But he's not. He's polling at the top of the contenders for the nomination in practically every poll. Not good. Not if you're a socialist Democrat, which is rather redundant these days. Try as he may Joe's just out of step with his own party. It left him in the dust in its race to be Venezuela.
Anvil Joe has his own problems, however. Creepy Joe is what some call him. He apparently has a shampoo fetish. He's a close talker. He loves to hug. He loves to whisper in women's ears. Nothing I've seen rises to sexual assault, but that's how it's being portrayed by his accusers. Lucy Flores, a Nevada state legislator, says ole Joe inappropriately touched her at a campaign event in 2014. Curious how she's just coming out now, but she says she'd still vote for Joe over Trump. Apparently she's not that shaken up over the "inappropriate touching." That or she's willing to take one for the team in order to defeat Trump.
What's telling is how the mainstream media have jumped on Joe like a pack of coyotes. They see AOC and her legion of sycophantic fans as the way forward for America. God help us. Joe's too white. He's too old. He's too establishment. Let's face it, as Democrats go, he's too reasonable. If you don't think dismantling our entire economy with the Green New Deal is a grand idea then you're a dinosaur who needs to go the way of the, well, dinosaur.
Unfortunately too many Democrats continue to ride this raft down the river toward the waterfall. They're too deaf because of party loyalty or tradition to hear the rushing waters. And they don't mind pulling the rest of us over with them.
Why this sudden lurch to the left? Some will argue it's a long time coming. It really began when Nancy Pelosi became speaker the first time. Once the likes of Barney Frank were running committees we knew we had turned a dark corner. Then the American people woke up and threw them out. You'd think they'd learn a lesson, but they didn't. They figured they weren't radical enough.
Then along comes Donald Trump. With all of his distractions there's one thing liberals do notice. He's actually doing what so many Republicans before him only talked about. We got tax cuts. We're trying to get control of illegal immigration. We've abandoned this nonsense of allowing global warming to drive policy. He's the socialists' worst nightmare. That's why Anvil Joe ain't gonna cut it.
The socialists see Trump as wounded (in spite of exoneration by the Mueller investigation) and they want to strike while the iron is hot. That means going full socialist. That means Creepy Joe Biden cannot be allowed to win.
Homeless people are taking over. I know we're supposed to be sympathetic, and I am. I've worked with the homeless in varying capacities. I've given my time and money. I have a special place in my heart for the truly needy. But I fear too many are taking advantage of our generosity. Take the ubiquitous person at the off-ramp with the sign....Read More
Before we get into this I don't want anyone thinking I'm a space curmudgeon. I loved Star Trek. (Star Wars, not so much.) I think space exploration is exciting. I'm old enough to remember when we landed on the moon. You'd be amazed at how many people are alive today who weren't even born the last time we went to the moon in 1972. Now it's been r...Read More
Everybody's freaking out about a trade war with China. What's the worst case scenario? That we no longer do business with China? That would be fine by me. China is on just about every group's top 10 list of human rights violators, usually at the very top. It's a brutal communist regime that's killed tens of millions of people. An estimated 45 mi...Read More
What qualifies a person to be president? Interesting question. Pose it to a hundred people you'll probably get a hundred answers. Most will say experience. That can either be in the business world, as in President Trump's case, or political. What kind of political experience? Most of our presidents have first been governor somewhere. A few, like...Read More
I read an article in The National, a publication from the United Arab Emirates, about an Emirati woman who awakened from a coma after nearly 30 years. Can you imagine that? It got me to thinking whether someone in that situation would find the world a better or worse place after 30 years.Just think of what has transpired over the past 30 years. ...Read More
Georgetown University students recently voted 2-1 to create a $27 student fee to pay reparations to descendants of slaves sold by the university in 1838 in order to save it. Descendants of those 272 slaves are treated as legacy students by the university, giving them preferential treatment in admissions. The liberal world rejoiced, but it was si...Read More
This is almost like a war. We're fighting socialism on so many fronts. One wave of the dreaded enemy is approaching from the west as California seeks to tax soft drinks, tires, guns, car batteries, even lawyers. Anything the socialists don't like they tax. Another big battle front is in the southwest. The one at the southern border. They've pene...Read More

I think everyone can agree, regardless of political ideology, the Trump-Russia issue turned into a big mess. The news media detest not knowing. In place of good, solid information on just what may have transpired between the Trump campaign and Russia, or just what may not have transpired, they chose to fill in the blanks with rampant negative sp...Read More
There's this guy named Andrew Yang. You've probably never heard of him. The San Francisco Chronicle is singing his praises. Why? Because he's running for president and he's promising a 'freedom dividend' to every adult American. What's a freedom dividend? It's $1,000 a month just for being alive. How does he expect to pay for this? Oh, he has no...Read More
