Long before camcorders and America’s Funniest Home Videos, radio and TV personality Art Linkletter used to host a show called, “Kids Say the Darnedest Things.”
Today it is Democrat presidential candidates saying the “darnedest” things, and while some candidates are older than others, all are old enough to know better than to say the darnedest things they’ve been saying.
America’s best known socialist Bernie Sanders has added another wacko herb to his socialism stew by supporting the right of murderers, rapists, violent offenders and terrorists to vote.
“I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy,” he said recently.
What about those Americans permanently disenfranchised because they were killed by those Bernie wants to give the right to vote? Last I looked the right not to be murdered is an ‘inherent American right’ too.
Everyone’s favorite Native American wannabe recently proposed forgiving the student loan debt of 95 percent of those owing on college loans.
When announcing her plan Lieawatha said it “helps millions of families and removes a weight that’s holding back our economy.”
But wait, does she speak with a forked tongue – again?
The Brookings Institution reports under Sitting Baloney’s plan, the majority of those benefiting from the loan forgiveness program would be the nation’s highest earners.
Specifically, the top 20 percent of the highest income households would receive about 27 percent of all annual savings, and the top 40 percent about 66 percent.
The bottom 20 percent of borrowers by income would get only 4 percent of the savings.
Why would Pocahontas devise a plan favoring the richest students? And what of those students saddled with debt before the launch of the Pocahontas Penury Plan? Will they be eligible for ‘tuition reparations’ or Starbucks gift cards?
California senator Kamala Harris said at a recent town hall sponsored by CNN (Collusion News Network):
“There are people in Washington, D.C., supposed leaders, who have failed to have the courage to reject a false choice which suggests you’re either in favor of the second amendment or you want to take everyone’s guns away.”
She then promised that if Congress failed to act on gun control in her first 100 days as president, she would sign an executive order overriding the Second Amendment and forcibly take guns away from those she doesn’t think should have them.
Read my lips: When a Democrat says we need ‘common sense’ regulations and ‘reasonable gun safety laws’, that always means banning guns.
Only Kamala Harris or any of the other 300 Democrats running for president in 2020 would support the rights of prison felons and terrorists over the rights of legal gun owners guaranteed in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.
Couple their enthusiasm for prisoners’ voting rights with their publicly expressed support for infanticide, the Green New Deal and open borders and voila – Democrats have a winning platform!
Go and run on that platform Democrats – America will love you for it!
Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to all those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who don’t, God bless you but there’s nothing here for you to see.
