The Left Love Death, So Why The Masks?

Published

on

For years, many on the authoritarian left have advocated for partial birth abortion, assisted suicide, drone strikes, and endless wars. They have praised murderers like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara; and they fawn over genocidal maniacs like Mao and “Uncle Joe” Stalin. Increasingly, a majority on the American left now advocate for the same policies of these dictators that resulted in food and medicine shortages, outright famine, mass imprisonment and murder. The left love death.

Lawmakers in left wing controlled places like California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Washington DC – all have made physician assisted suicide legal in one form or another. The mere mention of even trying to have a discussion about protecting innocent unborn life in the womb and alternatives to child sacrifice often results in cat- like screeching from left coast to left coast. Human sacrifice and death have always been a defining trait of declining civilizations. Perhaps this is one reason the left is now pushing for students to celebrate the Aztec Empire and chant to their God’s. The left love death.

Leftist Bill Gates wants us to consider euthanasia to fund our schools. Several politicians on the left, and unfortunately some on the right, have long supported Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards to reduce emissions. The goal: to “save the environment.” The result? More death. Making vehicles lighter as demanded by our politicians increases gas mileage, but lighter vehicles don’t hold up too well in a crash. For the authoritarian left and those who embrace their ideas, the environment is more important than human life. The left love death.

With the authoritarian left’s well documented endorsement of people and policies that have led to so much death over history, it is ironic that they now seem concerned with preventing people from getting sick and dying from COVID-19. If they aren’t careful, they might get labeled “Pro-Life.” The authoritarian left is not concerned with preventing people from dying. To take that position would undo years of their commitment to Communist ideologies and “saving the earth” through population control, vehicle emissions standards, and every other narcissistic wacky idea they have imposed on everyone else.

The left do not care about you and your health. They are only pretending to be because masks and lockdowns have always been about the only thing that the authoritarian left really cares about: power. Power and control over you as a sovereign individual. The “pandemic” created the perfect vehicle for people like Andrew Cuomo, Gavin Newsom, Anthony Fauci, and other authoritarian leftists to lead a brigade of tattletales at all levels of the socio-economic spectrum. Certainly most people who work at Wal-Mart or any other place don’t get their kicks off of having to tell you to make sure your mask is covering your nose. In fact, most normal people don’t like conflict and we try to avoid it. But there are some who love the newfound power. Power that wasn’t earned by merit, by starting a business, getting a degree, or having a profession. That moral power rooted in creation, production, and service to others.

To be clear, there is nothing wrong with working at Wal-Mart, or in any other job one may choose. If you have been told by your superiors to enforce a silly mask or social distancing mandate, and you avoid it at all costs, and you do it with great reluctance and an understanding of the unfortunate silliness of it all, then you are a normal person. The people who enjoy bossing others around and enforcing these COVID regulations are among the ranks of every petty sociopath used by every kind of tyrant to abuse power all throughout the history of the world.

You know the type. They give you that dirty look if you aren’t wearing a mask, or you don’t have the “right kind” of mask, or you aren’t wearing it the “right way.” Some of them are quick to snap a directive at you. None of them would know what to do if you punched them in the nose, and they know it too! They know you won’t do that, but they kind of hope you do rebel because they comfortably hide behind the threat of law enforcement and the ever-growing police state. They wouldn’t dare say a word to you about a mask if they were alone with you in an empty back alley. Deep down, they know you know that too, and that makes them angry. This is the source of the dirty look they give you and the little power trip in the snap of their voice. The truth that you walk in strength and freedom and without fear and that they are incapable of such a sovereign and rugged individualist mindset. They need the nanny state to tell them what to do, what to think, and how to boss others around. They need group identity and group think. You don’t need any of that and it pisses them off.

Real men and women create their own power, but we need freedom to do it. We need to be free to go out into the wilderness and build a house. We need to be free to sell things, to create things, to exercise the right of assembly with others. We need the freedom to interact in the most efficient and convenient ways possible. This is how things get built. This is at the core of a flourishing and free civilization. The authoritarian left and the losers who vote for them know this. Therefore, they lock us down. They don’t have the confidence or the work ethic to get out there and create and build, or they already made it to the top and now they want to pull the ladder up so no one else gets up there. They say it is to keep us healthy and alive; but their history tells a different story; the Lockdown Authoritarian Left Love Power and The Left Love Death.

Education

Make Universities Accountable for Predatory Student Loan Abuse

Published

on

The Biden administration is still talking about delivering on the President’s promise to relieve student loan debt for many Americans. There is continuing discussion on how much debt should be forgiven, how to pay for it, and whether it is fair to all those who have diligently and painfully worked to already pay off their own student loans. After all, if you’re going to eliminate student debt to buy votes, why just limit it to student debt?

Unfortunately for Biden, according to numerous sources including National Review, the executive branch has no generalized power to forgive any amount of student debt. Even Nancy Pelosi confirmed simply that “the president can’t do it. That’s not even a discussion.” The Department of Education came to the same verdict, determining that the executive branch “does not have the statutory authority to cancel, compromise, discharge, or forgive, on a blanket or mass basis, principal balances of student loans, and/or to materially modify the repayment amounts or terms thereof.”

Of course, even if he had the authority, forgiving student debt doesn’t make the debt go away. Reality has a way of breaking into such “freeloading” dreams. It’s pay me now, or somebody else pay me later. But why should some future taxpayer pay off anyone else’s student debt?

Whatever happened to wise warnings of “student beware.” When you get an education and agree to pay the tuition, you ought to realize that you must at some point pay for that education. You signed on the bottom line. Face your real-world responsibilities. Hopefully, you picked a degree major that will ensure a career capable of paying off your loans. Students clearly have some responsibility, but what about the universities that took advantage of the money coming from those loans?

After all, there is ample evidence that student tuitions exploded far faster than inflation when government funds became readily available for student loans. Complaints of excessive tuition increases by students trapped in their programs tended to be met with a less than caring response—pound sand!

Since 2008, the tuition cost or a four-year college degree has increased nearly 25%. In that same period, student debt has doubled, increasing by 107%. 2015 study found that a dollar of subsidized student loans results in a published tuition increase of 58 cents at a typical university, An NBER paper suggests that changes to federal student loans are more than sufficient to explain tuition increases at private nonprofit colleges. And a 2014 study found that for-profit colleges eligible for federal student aid charged tuition 78% higher than that of similar but aid-ineligible institutions.

In short, there is no doubt that tuition was rising faster than the inflation level. Evidence has been clear for decades. In 1987, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett argued that “increases in financial aid in recent years have enabled colleges and universities to raise their tuition, confident that Federal loan subsidies would help cushion the increase.”

Bennett pointed out in 1987 that federal student aid had risen 57 percent since 1980, while inflation had been 26 percent. A 2020 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office brought the numbers up to date: “Between 1995 and 2017, the balance of outstanding federal student loan debt increased more than sevenfold, from $187 billion to $1.4 trillion (in 2017 dollars).” What is the lesson? The more federal aid to students is available colleges raise tuition more. Salaries rise and bureaucracies expand. There are more courses, more dorms, dining halls, lavish recreational centers, and more money for endowments.

Far too many students find that once they begin their education, their schools raise the tuition at such a high rate that their debt explodes. The university builds their endowment, and the “trapped” student is compelled to finish what they started at a cost they did not expect to have to pay. In such a situation, should not the university be responsible for any increased cost above the increase in cost of living during the same time? It’s time for universities to take responsibility for their share of student debt.

The universities that benefited from these loans should have a part in footing the bill. That means universities that raked in millions to inflate endowments should be holding the bag for those who can’t afford to pay their loans. With universities holding hundreds of billions of dollars in tax-free endowments, any government program to relieve student debt should be completely dependent on taxing those university endowments.

It’s time to counter the Democrats’ vote-buying scheme by making lasting changes to the student loan process. That means putting universities on the hook for their predatory behavior. That will go much further than a temporary payoff that does nothing to solve what is causing the problem.

Tucker: Why are they so angry?

There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more.

Published

Tucker gives an extended list of several people who were arrested or had their homes raided, without explanation, for no crime. Highlights include:

“Why have a political debate when you can just arrest people who disagree with you? And that has happened, far below the media radar since the day Joe Biden was elected, and tonight we want to show you … a litany, a list of Americans who have been arrested, detained by federal law enforcement on the orders of the Biden administration, not because they committed recognizable crimes but because they disagreed with the political aims of the Biden administration.”

“Ooh, Trumps a fascist, remember that? Did Trump’s DOJ raid the homes of a lot of journalists who embarrassed his children? No, you don’t remember that, because it didn’t happen. But Joe Biden’s justice department has done that, and then they kept going.”

“We don’t arrest people for ignoring congressional subpoenas, especially when they cite executive privilege, a principal that has a long history in American history, so no, we’ve never done that, but we can do it now because it was ‘an insurrection’, an insurrection that wasn’t armed, wasn’t planned, it didn’t actually insurrect anything, but it was still an insurrection. Now you’re beginning to see why it’s been so important from the very first day for the media to describe what happened on January 6 not as a riot, but as an insurrection, because if it’s an insurrection, they can violate your civil rights.”

“So, a decade ago the Obama administration was caught sending automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels and Congress wanted to know more about this. Eric Holder, then the attorney general, had a key role in this, ‘operation fast and furious’, you may remember it. So, they subpoena’d him, and he ignored the subpoena, and the media applauded, he was taking a noble position. But when Steve Bannon or Peter Navarro tried to do something like that, they went to jail. Again, we had this exact same thing happen in public ten years ago. A federal judge ruled that Holder’s privilege claim was not legitimate, and he was still never arrested, but the rules have changed. Why is that?”

“There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more. The media think you should be sent to jail if you show disrespect, and so of course, with no media to push back against unconstitutional overreach, the justice department kept going.”
