The Better What?
Posted on August 3, 2017 by Robert Ringer
I cannot tell you how excited I was when Cryin’ Chuck and Granny Nancy presented the Democrats’ brand-spanking new “Better Deal” (technically titled The Better Deal). They should have called it the New Deal, Part II, because it’s the same old, tired progressive policies that have transformed the United States into a semi-socialist country (on the verge of dropping the “semi”).
Or, perhaps betters still, how about “Change You Can Believe In, Part II”? Part I worked out real well, didn’t it? But however you label it, the bottom line is that it’s a call to arms for more big government control of the economy and people’s lives.
That the Dirty Dems are tone deaf has been repeated so many times you’d think they would be more imaginative. But, to our good fortune, such is not the case. It was actually painful watching Granny Nancy fumble and stumble for intelligible answers when Chris Wallace grilled her on Sunday. It was clear that all that wine and cheese has finally taken its toll on her grey matter.
Among other things, The Better Deal calls for higher wages, lower prescription drug costs, an increase in workforce training, and growing infrastructure. How fresh and exciting! Not quite. In reality, it’s the same old mush the Dirty Dems have been peddling for years.
When Wallace asked Granny how the Dirty Dems could win by doing nothing more than recycling their same old agenda, her perplexing answer was, “They’ll hear it with more clarity.” Translation: “Our agenda is just fine. Our messaging just has to be better.”
She then quickly shifted the conversation to herself by mimicking none other than Horrible Hillary. When Wallace asked her about stepping down from her leadership position, she not so subtly adjusted her dentures with her tongue and embarrassingly stated, “I am a master legislator.”
Obviously, Granny is going to be a very depressed woman when the Dirty Dems are overwhelmingly defeated in 2018. (To cover my tracks, I hasten to add that the one and only thing that can prevent a Republican landslide victory in 2018 is if Donald Trump continues his efforts to turn the White House into Animal House and/or the anti-Trump Republicans in Congress succeed in stopping his agenda. That’s right — not Democrats, but Republicans!)
But the worst feature of The Better Deal is the proposition that would create a giant bureaucracy (affectionately referred to by Granny and Chuck as the “National Trust Buster”) to oversee all the existing anti-business agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
The justification is to prevent monopolies and excess concentrations of power in the business world. Of course, if the Dirty Dems were in power and actually enacted such legislation, you can be sure they would exclude from those constraints their favorite big-tech benefactors — Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Alphabet (Google). Let there be no doubt that the Democrats are the party of the one-percenters!
Then, of course, there’s the minimum wage (yawn), which Democrats must surely realize by now is a job killer and an incentive for companies to move toward more automation and less hiring. Of course, Democrats consider people out of work to be a big win for them, because that equates to dependency, which in turn equates to more Democratic votes. It’s great to be a Democrat, isn’t it?
Basically, what the Dirty Dems are admitting by trying yet again to peddle the politics of envy is that they are convinced the voters who put Donald Trump in power are ignorant — or at least confused. It’s simply a matter of better explaining things to them. Or, as Granny put it, they have to hear the Dirty Dems’ message with more clarity. Failing that, perhaps they need to be sent to reeducation camps where they can read up on Marx and Mao.
We often hear conservative pundits say they are baffled as to why the Democratic Party cannot come up with new ideas, but that’s an easy one to answer. It’s because they’ve had their way for so long — going back at least to FDR and the so-called New Deal — that they’ve become lazy. They have had no incentive to change, because even during the Reagan years they were able to continue selling their snake oil, and during Bush I and Bush II, it was as though they were still in power.
All this is why I believe that if Trump and/or his Republican antagonists don’t screw things up, there is an excellent chance the Democratic Party, as we have come to know it, will not exist after 2018 — or at least after 2020. Bernie Sanders alone almost guarantees that sad ending for them, because this time around he’s going to push the Dirty Dems even further to the anti-American left.
Now, let the fun begin. Bring on The Better Deal.
Excellent column as always. The thing that concerns me is that the demographics are pointing to the fact that in just a generation or two, the nation will inexorably become a left leaning nation and it will become impossible for a real Conservative to win a national election. Just traveling down in the areas of the suburbs of Maryland and Northern Virginia, one would think they are residing in a Central American country, and the thing about it is I've noticed that Hispanics take very seriously that biblical admonition to "be fruitful and multiply" as you see women towing around several children in stair step alignment. The fact is the large majority of these future voters will no doubt lean Democratic. If the Dems are able to increase the populations of these future Democrats in a few key states, it's over!
Bill, you are correct in your assessment of just looking at numbers of people and especially so in large population centers, where the Libtards rule. However, as Margaret Thatcher once famously remarked, "Socialism finally fails when you run out of Other People's Money!" and that is what is happening. The Dumbocrat agenda is so flawed economically that it just creates larger and larger dependency classes with no real productive value, not to mention all the parasites in govt. jobs, which add NOTHING to an economy. The $15 minimum wage programs in places like SEATTLE and SF are already closing businesses and adding layoffs, as automated kiosks can easily replace the unskilled minimum wage worker at a fast food place, e.g. Money in the hands of the wealthy is being diversified out of the USA and its confiscatory tax policies, so you are left with a shrinking pie. Progressives have been slowly bankrupting Amerika since Woodrow Wilson's time, and the acceleration began with FDR and LBJ, so now we have $20 Trillion in debt, and complete morons as the spokespersons for the Dumbocrat Party (and MOST Repulsicans are NO better!!). Sanders and Perez – what a leadership team??!!
The tipping point is still the problem. Once 51% of the sheeple vote themselves a free ride on the backs of the remaining 49%, the great experiment that is the USA is over.
It ain 't over yet. War most uncivil if they get rid of Trump.
Animal House!! the best description yet of the White House! Love it!
Animal House…replacing the "House of Horrors" brought to us, courtesy of Obama! If the Dems get back is, it will literally be a "House of Ill Repute." Hilary just might be its "Madam." Slick Willie will be in hog's heaven, a fitting description for him and is political party.
Hillary? Madam? Barf me out!
Don't worry, there is no danger of the White House being turned into Animal House. This president is tactically and systematically driving the Make America Great Again agenda. The Dems are beside themselves with anger and frustration. The news media is flomuxed and continues to see Americans in droves get their news & information elsewhere. These are interesting times indeed!
I can't abide hearing Pelosi's voice, like Harry Reid before her. Schumer is another one whose voice grates. And, when I see pictures of any of these anti-Liberty nutjobs, I scroll right past them as fast as I can.
Our side is partly responsible for letting the children in government run amok. Being a lazy and fearful parent ensures the children become criminal animals. This is the result of the grown-up party's laziness and FEAR of the unruly children.
When politicians talk about and/or DO ANYTHING other than UNLEASHING the economy, ENSURING the FREEDOM of the AMERICAN people, and CUTTING spending and regulations, they need to be SHUT DOWN and RIDICULED. If the pundits don't start doing that, those pundits need to lose our readership/viewship as fast as possible. In that way we'll send a powerful message to OUR SERVANTS, the political class and the FREE MARKET will educate and/or destroy the punditry for getting off track.
And, what Stephen Miller did yesterday to the communist media was EPIC and much appreciated by his EMPLOYERS (US for those in Rio Linda).
To quote another brilliant person, "Let the men who want to marry men get married; let the women who want to marry women get married; let those who favor abortion have abortions and in three generations – there will be no Democrats!"
Marlena! You hit the political nail right on the head! YOU ARE THE WOMAN! That's how we can get rid of all these Dirty Dems……once and for all…..FOREVER!!! Why didn"t I think of that? Dang! And throw in a lot of RINOs and Republicrats too! Bad clown acts like McCain, Graham, Kasich……..ad nauseum! YOU GOT IT RIGHT! Gee, I may have to turn pro-abortion! Gulp! Maybe, allow it for the Dirty Dems only! Lols!!!
Animal House! Lols! You got it right, Robert (as always)! Maybe it should be Animal House II. Anyhoooo, the Dirty Dems are a complete joke and waste! The party is washed up and defunct! I can't believe these maggots are still around! I would LOVE to see the news headlines in 2018: A Requiem for the Dirty Dems: RIP!!!
Dependency or Freedom. Now there's a campaign slogan if I ever heard one.
It's totally perplexing how the Dirty Dems DO maintain support. In my city the city officials are corrupt, arrogant lowlifes, you can just Google their names and read the high crimes AND misdemeanors they have committed, yet the people still vote for them. Sometimes when I take the bus the people sometimes trash talk Donald Trump when I get on, but the areas they live are crime-ridden, running down (beautiful old homes built by master craftsmen, turning into a 3rd world slum), gunshots at night, etc.
It reminds of something the psychologist Jordan Peterson brought up, how in the Bible, Satan offered Jesus power over the world.
Jesus replied, "Out, Satan!"
Satan clearly offered the Dirty Dems the same, and they took him up on it!!!
Maybe when it comes time for Trump to rebuild the infrastructure, he will just pass these Trump-trashers up!
It's kinda hard to feel sympathy for the mass of them, they are effectively bribing leaders with their votes, which shows they are morally corrupted themselves. There are some "dissidents" who are stuck there for personal reasons but know they're being scammed, and live in fear of predatorial criminals. One on the bus told me, "Trump would bring jobs to the community, it would get the people standing on the corners in good jobs."
The Dirty Dems are only interested in power, but the question is: how to stop them?
They shout the loudest & keep repeating lies & beating the rest of the nation down?
Sam239 – sounds like you live either in Detroit or in Cleveland. If so, the people (or "folk" to use Obama's terminology) vote for the clowns because 1) they too are felons or scam artists who make their living milking the system and see nothing wrong with the status quo, and 2) they're racists who can only see black and white, and will vote for the black regardless of his or her credentials or character. Scamming taxpayers has been sold by the Alinskyites as a form of reparations (you're getting whitey back AND getting free stuff too) and is an ingrained part of the ghetto culture. And yes, you can thank the Dirty Dems for perpetuating the lie as well as the behavior.
What you said seems accurate, except, it's Columbia, South Carolina. This neighborhood I stay in is beautiful, hand-built hardwood homes, nearly 100 years old but very nicely constructed. It seems like the people who built it and their descendants have all moved out, the new denizens are letting the area degrade into a socialist third world cesspool.
I wish I could believe the premise of this article. Unfortunately, Americans – perhaps all humans – will vote for whomever has the prettiest face and promises the most "free chit." Actual delivery of the "free chit" is secondary, since the attention span of the average voter is about 30 seconds, and besides, since it's all provided free by "the government," what's the downside of voting for it? Even worse is that republicans = democrats when it comes to oligarchical ambitions, and successful politicians recognize this instinctively. Eric Blair was a prophet. R.I.P. America.
The downside for voting for "free chit" from any Government is that of course as most of Robert’s readers know, it is never free; in fact, it always comes as the most expensive “Free Chit” anyone can ever receive because it requires one to relinquish their freedom to be responsible for their own well being…>>>Ask any average citizen in Venezuela today how they feel about Socialism as their oil rich country rots and deteriorates into the hellish nightmarish scenario they are plagued with today at the hands of their current dictator masquerading as a freely elected leader? I’m certain most would tell you that every Government known to mankind had to FIRST steal all that "Free Chit" from someone else….after all, every form of welfare is the oldest political scam known to mankind: that is, to quietly steal from their citizens and flamboyantly return a small portion and pocket the large balance for their own pleasure and use, all the while screaming how deplorable, illiterate and stupid most citizens are….damn, that sounds rather Clintonish or Johnsonish or McCainish doesn’t it??? Illiterate citizens with voting privileges are every Demo/Publicans most cherished dream come true…and of course, that's exactly why we have Mexifornia and all the other Fornia’s in America today. I can’t wait for Mexifornia to secede. Can’t you just envision Jerry Brown dressed in his newest and very best Hitler costume and Hanoi Jane Fonda with flak jacket and helmet riding on the float together screaming rude vulgarities at President Trump while Holly-Weird’s Barbara Streisand brings up the rear with her bullhorn in hand shouting to the heavens that Donald Trump is the reason she has gotten to be such a fat pig! Oh Happy Days.
I feel very few people probably know who Eric Blair is so I have included a very informative-interesting link reference 1984.
If you can wrap your head around this, it took over 13 billion light years for the light from the furthest known galaxy from earth to reach us today….and it is estimated that over half the atoms that make up every humans anatomy came from far away distant galaxies….this does put our comments into perspective, right?
And, my favorite quote by Eric Blair is as follows:
If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.
The Dirty Dems should call it for what it is, The Raw Deal!
Why should they even want to change Robert? America has gone from a nation of individuals to a nation of sheep under their control for the last 40 years or so. Generally speaking, anything new that they would change would be against what they really stand for. Any rollback in socialist policies would be a step backwards for them.
The Pelosi clip included in this article is indeed painful to watch. She is more than just stupid, but so many did buy into FDR's "New Deal" (better named the Screw Deal) that maybe Brain-Dead Pelosi and Upchuck Schumers version will be "The Better Screw" – as every single "progressive Libtard" agenda item has done just that to the American people!! Freedom has no chance in a cesspool of deranged thought like that. They don't understand ANYTHING about free market economics, and they only care about more coercion and theft, as they are the foundation of the State (along with perpetual war in foreign lands). If only you could gain a leadership position in their Caucus, Robert, there might be some hope of real clarity and enlightenment. Otherwise, our only hope is that Dumbocrat becomes an EXTINCT SPECIES!!
Mr. Ringer is totally at odds with David Stockman. See https://dailyreckoning.com/trump-another-nixon/
Thank you so much for sharing this great blog.Very inspiring and helpful too.Hope you continue to share more of your ideas. Visit here
The dems leadership in DC is closer to age 90 and most of the base of Democrats are 45 and under. They are mostly corporatism and don't even understand the wants and needs of their own base. And shown to be corrupt in downplaying the efforts of Bernie Sanders. Not say the Bern solutions are all that good or the ultimate solution. The dirty dems can get the crowd riled up with all their identity politics bs, history shows the more protests that happen, the more GOP gets elected. Not very bright.
Get off!! This is for Comments to Ringer's articles, NOT Mcafee ads!! How did you cripple the "Report" screens?
GET OFF, McAfeebb!!!
