Trying to Understand Bernie Sanders Supporters

There has been much said about Bernie Sanders and his supporters as to their level of intelligence and their understanding of how the American government and our economy actually work. I have noticed that the vast majority of Sanders supporters have no idea of how our government works and display a complete inability to understand even the most rational argument about why Sanders will not be able to give them the “free shit” that these miscreants seem to need to survive yet another day in their “point and click” existence.


The rabid support of Bernie Sanders by his supporters is incredibly misguided. I began to simply focus on the arguments from the Sanders supporters themselves. Many Sanders supporters are quite comical and seem to focus not on the ample supply of examples of the failure of socialism globally, but more importantly, why Sanders will be different.

I must admit that I have not ever seen a group of people so largely disconnected with the process of government and the law of government, yet so vehemently supportive of a political candidate. It’s frightening to me that people can be blindly throwing themselves into the idea of socialism being a better way of living for the people of the United States.

When faced with the obvious examples like Venezuela and Brazil and the abject failure of socialism there, they cite Canada, Switzerland and Denmark. Others argue that a simple Google search of those countries and their economies shows that not all is well in these countries. My argument is that these countries have populations of 60 million or less and closely monitor who comes into and out of their countries, as well as keeping a lid on any outsiders getting into the country simply to exploit the system.

The fact that America has more than 40 million illegal aliens living in the country that have at this point completely compromised our social services programs and are stripping away the tax dollars at an alarming rate is one of the various reasons socialism will never work in America.

But then I began to look at the real cause of how so many can support socialism itself and the answer became quite obvious.

The first is poor parenting. WIthout fail, anytime I approach a Sanders supporter with logic, I get shouted down and told how stupid I am. Most Sanders supporters behave like petulant children. You see it all over social media. Sanders supporters launching into full blown tirades and eventual tantrums. If you think for one minute that these individuals don’t behave that way every time they hear the word “no” then you are as stupid as they are. These are the Sanders supporters that grew up hearing “Every kid is a winner, and Everyone gets a trophy” from their parents and mentors.

The second is that these college students routinely mistake education with actual intelligence. I have had many one way conversations with various college students and grads that think that their degree trumps my intelligence and experiences with politics. Without knowing anything about me or my own background, they launch into 5 minute diatribes that usually end by insulting my intelligence.

A college degree used to mean something. Now all it means is that you are easily trained. Nothing more. In fact most people coming out of college don’t even get a job in the field that they majored in.

Which brings me to my contention as to why Bernie Sanders is so wildly popular with the American youth. The abject failure of the educational system itself. Face it. We have an entire generation of kids that grew up spoiled rotten, in many instances never hearing the word “no” and getting a poor education from the very system which they now so vehemently support.

I consider Bernie Sanders supporters to be the absolute end result of the last 40 years of liberal control of education by democrats, and the IRONY here is now they are so dumbed down by Democrats that they have become socialists that won’t support the democrat candidate because they consider them too conservative.

I offer Bernie Sanders supporters as living proof that liberalism doesn’t work. In fact its like a horrible experiment with the American youth gone awry. A Democratic party political failure on display for the world to see.

Its funny to see Hillary Clinton’s reaction to the Bernie Sanders issue. Even funnier when the media asks Hillary to explain it. She knows why its happening. But she refuses to answer, simply explaining it away as an aberration that will eventually go away. Bad new Hillary. You and your husband helped to create Bernie Sanders, and he ain’t going anywhere. Millennials are a direct result of Bill Clinton’s “Whole Learning method of education, which was an absolute disaster. Bill and Hillary helped take a once shining college system into a place where a person can major in collecting beer cans.

It’s been quite entertaining to watch the Sanders Supporters slugging it out on social media all day. To see so many people so inaccurately recite American history is pretty damn funny. Alas, I have no choice but to say I can’t wait for the #FeelTheBern supporters to actually start earning a living and paying taxes. Only then will they realize how wrong they were for supporting Bernie Sanders.

Kerry Mocks Trumps Wall, Declares ‘Borderless World’

Perhaps now would be a good time to explain to John Kerry that there is no such word as “Borderless.” After nearly 8 years of Obama, it has become painfully obvious to me that American Democrats seek to destroy any semblance of the America that the founding fathers created.

Secretary of State John Kerry

Secretary of State John Kerry

Secretary of State John Kerry took a shot at Donald Trump during his Friday commencement speech at Northeastern University, by saying no wall is big enough to keep dangerous terrorists out of the United States.

“Many of you were in elementary school when you learned the toughest lesson of all on 9/11,” he said. “There are no walls big enough to stop people from anywhere, tens of thousands of miles away, who are determined to take their own lives while they target others.”

“So I think that everything that we’ve lived and learn tells us that we will never come out on top if we accept advice from sound-bite salesmen and carnival barkers who pretend the most powerful country on Earth can remain great by looking inward,” Kerry added. “And hiding behind walls at a time that technology has made that impossible to do and unwise to even attempt.”

Kerry didn’t mention Trump by name, but Trump has repeatedly called for a wall on the southern U.S. border, and many Democrats, and some Republicans, have taken to calling him a carnival barker.

Trump Exposes Ugly Truth of Illegal Immigration

It’s been an interesting week on the campaign trail for the 2016 presidential elections. I knew there would be EPIC problems here in California when Donald Trump came to town. I was actually praying for the disaster that ensued and as usual, the massive criminal element in the Hispanic community did not disappoint.

Trump’s Costa Mesa rally was really a cry out to America from Californians to help do something about illegal immigration. This has been an epidemic since the mid 1980’s and Californians have responded with propositions 187 as well as 209 which were both shot down in flames by Latino activists and the liberal courts of California.

Proposition 187 sought to quell the incredible costs of both educating and medical care of illegal immigrants.

Proposition 209 was supposed to stop the state from considering race, sex or ethnicity when hiring anyone in the public sector.

Montebello HSIn both instances, Californians had to witness Latinos and their activists issuing their lists of demands on American soil while waving Mexican flags. There were even instances of Latino activists going to predominantly Hispanic schools and inciting walkouts and protests like the one at Montebello High School, where students flew the American flag upside down under the flag of Mexico.

chpWhat many don’t know is that here in Los Angeles we have been dealing with this for 30 years. Every time someone proposes kicking illegal immigrants off the gravy train, they riot. Images like the one to the left have become commonplace here in Los Angeles. But many across America probably don’t know why. I will offer the short form of an explanation here.

Middle America is only now beginning to see what we here in California have been seeing for 30 years. Here in Southern California, illegal aliens are running concurrent scams and laughing all the way to the Mexican banks. Living on EBT and WIC, collecting welfare while they have a husband which the claim doesn’t exist out working under the table and living better than tax paying Americans. Insurance scams, legal scams etc. Not a week goes by in Los Angeles where you don’t see articles in the paper about families collecting welfare under 6 different names. One family was collecting 12k a month in welfare alone.

You couple that with the rampant theft, graffiti and all the other massive drains they create on the American tax payer, after a while you have to ask yourself, is it really worth it for cheap produce at the supermarket? Our kids struggle to get entry level employment here in Los Angeles and in some areas you need a translator to order food at your favorite fast food restaurants.

Its not uncommon here in Los Angeles to walk into local quickie marts and be unable to communicate with the help behind the counter because they speak little or no English. My point here is these people have no interest in becoming a part of America. Many of the locals here call them donkey’s because there sole reason for being here is to earn money and send it back to Mexico.

Then there are the Mexicans that run across the border just to have their babies, then go back with said child. Why would they do this? Because our government will pay them welfare! That’s right. We send their welfare check to their place of residence in MEXICO!!! This is a daily event. Don’t believe me? Watch “Border Wars” on NatGeo. This show displays first hand how bad things have become at the US border with Mexico.

I really can go on ad nauseam with this, but I think you get my point. All one need do is Google “Illegal Immigration” to see the truth. It cannot be hidden. Or better yet, go to Google News and search “Illegal Immigrant” and see what washes up. You’ll be amazed. JD

Illegal Immigration and the “Better Life” Argument

I’m just going to put this out there for all the proponents of Illegal Immigration and explain the reality of people coming into America illegally. These people that keep trying to push illegal immigration being good for America. As far as I am concerned, nothing could be further from the truth.

illegalaliensHere in Los Angeles, it has affected our lives exponentially for over 30 years. You can’t keep anything outside of your house. Not even a garden hose because we have these roving bands of What I Call “Land Pirates” that come into your neighborhood under the premise of going through your garbage and collecting the recyclables. What they’re actually doing is STEALING the recyclables from your city issued recycling can (thus stealing income from the city) and canvassing the neighborhood breaking into cars, stealing garden hoses, stealing bird baths and anything else they can get their hands on.

God help you if you’re a contractor and your truck is parked in the driveway. When you go out there the next morning, anything of any value will be gone. This has gone on for years now. In public parking lots, any drain grates, fire hydrant caps or for that matter, anything made of metal had better be welded, bolted or cabled to the ground or it will be stolen. They recycle everything they can get their hands on, even manhole covers, which have caused serious car accidents.

copper-theftVacant homes get broken into for the the copper plumbing and wire that are ripped out of the drywall and stolen. Entire kitchen cabinet sets stolen. Carpet rolled up and stolen. Anything of any value. This goes on day and night.

Meanwhile, another argument is that illegal immigrants that come to America eventually start a business, run it all cash, hide every cent that they make from the IRS while their wife and kids collect welfare and EBT on the other side. I’m here to tell you these people live better than Americans making 80 grand a year.

I’ve been in the supermarket when a couple comes rolling up in his Escalade or pimped out Suburban, fill two carts with a bunch of food, and when they get to the register, they pay for it with multiple EBT cards. They run every scam in the book.

Then there’s the whole premise that they are just “hardworking industrious people” and they just want a better life. Oh, and one of my favorites, “They are only doing the work Americans won’t do.” Every time I hear the previous statement, I say “Finish the sentence.” The correct way to say it is “They are only doing the work Americans won’t do for five dollars an hour.” Trust me, you pay a man $25.00 an hour and he will pick lettuce, cherries and apples while building a brick wall and framing a house at the same time.

Someone needs to explain to me how bringing somebody into this country that’s will work for $8 an hour and telling him go take the job of a person that was making $35 an hour is “good for America.”

You’re taking a person that had the spending power of a $35 dollar an hour employee and paid taxes at that rate, and replacing him with someone who pays less in taxes and sends half of his money back to Mexico! HOW IS THAT GOOD FOR AMERICA???? Everything about the illegal immigration argument from its proponents is predicated on lies and falsehoods. If you press them with those simple fact, they run screaming “racism” and call you a “racist” because that’s all they have.

DoubleFingerIllegalAlienIt has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with protecting the jobs and the people of the United States of America and THEIR possessions. I don’t understand why people can’t see that. These people come into the country by breaking our laws. What makes anyone think that once they’re here they would obey any of our laws?

I haven’t even brushed on the violent crimes, vehicular crimes and rapes committed by illegal immigrants. The list goes on and on. I can come up with thousands of ways that illegal immigration is bad for America and Americans. The proponents of illegal immigration have only one argument. “They are coming for a better life.” Well I would not have an argument if they started their “better life” in America by NOT making breaking our laws their first priority.

Cuban ‘Refugees’ Crossing Border in Texas by the Thousands

Why do we continue to call Cubans refugees? These people are from a country in which we were told that President Obama had “Normalized” relations with. They are not refugees. Like the 1990’s under President Bill Clinton. I would bet they are criminals purged from Cuban prisons. Most of the Bernie Sanders crowd is too young to remember, But Fidel Castro thought it would be funny if he sent a bunch of “refugees” to America. Turns out they were all criminals released from Cuban prisons and sent to America. Clinton being the dullard he is, let them in. Over night Miami and the rest of southern Florida was turned into a war zone. Thanks Democrats.

Costa Rica's Immigration Administration Director, Kathya Rodriguez calls the roll of Cubans leaving for their journey to the Guatemala-Mexico border in La Cruz, Costa Rica, January 12, 2016. A group of around 180 Cuban migrants will be able to leave on a flight to El Salvador Tuesday evening and will then have ground transportation to the Guatemala-Mexico border, Costa Rica's Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez said.

At least 7,000 Cuban refugees are expected to come to the border in the next coming days.

The activity at the Hidalgo International Bridge continues. For 40 years, Jose Angel Rodriguez has made his living driving a cab.

He said he’s seeing more Cubans crossing the port of entry. “They get here every night, in the morning, and at night they get here. They go to Laredo, too,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez remembered taking a few to a hotel or store. It gets busier each week that passes by.

Down the road from the bridge were a handful of 15-passenger vans. They had Florida license plates. Giovanni Acosta is one of them.

“In Cuba, there’s nothing. There’s no freedom. We came from Cuba because the pressure that we have there,” Giovanni Acosta said.

Acosta said he’s waiting for his wife to come to the bridge so he can take her back to Miami. She’s taking the same track as he once did. “I did the same path, like all the Cubans did. I came from Ecuador. I walked for 27 days on the road,” he said.

Congressman Henry Cuellar’s office said Cuban refugees are coming to Laredo’s Point of Entry every day and the numbers are increasing. They’re coming from Central America through Mexico to the border.

Acosta’s van can take more than just his family. He said he can help the Cuban refugees, but his goal is to pick up his family, to bring them safely back home.

CHANNEL 5 NEWS spoke to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to see if they were prepared for the influx. They released a statement that said in part, “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is prepared to process the expected increase in Cubans applying for admission at South Texas ports of entry. CBP officers will process Cuban nationals in accordance with established procedures as expeditiously as possible while maintaining requirements and standards for individuals in our care.”

No Injuries At San Diego Navy Medical Center Active Shooter Incident

AN active shooter situation was reported at the Naval Medical Center in Downtown San Diego. The hospital reported the active shooter at 8:22 a.m., prompting staff to advise all non-emergency personnel to stay away from the compound in the 34800 block of Bob Wilson Drive in San Diego.

“**!ATTENTION!** An active shooter has just been been reported in building #26 at Naval Medical Center San Diego. All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight,” the hospital wrote on Facebook.

A U.S. Navy spokesperson said authorities were searching buildings at the center. Law enforcement also began searching the hospital with a K9 unit, according to Jon Nylander, a Navy spokesman.

“Apparently someone said they heard three shots in the basement of Building 26. Maybe they did or not is not the point, that’s what they reported so that’s why we responded accordingly,” Nylander said. “We haven’t gotten any reports of any injuries.”

“If you are in the vicinity, shelter in place. If in immediate danger, hide or seek shelter in secure space. Barricade the door and dial 911. Silence phones and other devices. Stay away from doors and windows. Remain calm and quiet.”

Emergency responders were doing a “top down” search of the building, according to Nylander, and so far they have “not located any evidence” of a shooting. The basement of the building is a combination gym and barracks, he said.

The Great Bernie Sanders Scam

Bernie Sanders and his supporters have demonstrated quite clearly that they have no idea how Washington and for that matter the entire U.S. Government works. Our government has three branches. The Executive branch (For Sanders supporters, that would be the president) The Legislative branch (Congress) and the Judicial Branch (The Supreme Court.)

Chatting with Bernie Sanders supporters on social media makes it quite obvious these people have no idea why we have three branches of government. I actually had a woman (probably a 14 year old) tell me that all Sanders had to do was “say it was now law” and it would be so. I asked if she understood why it was so hard to get Obamacare passed and she replied “What’s Obamacare?”

I have these discussions with Sanders supporters all day long. To me Bernie Sanders has only succeeded in one thing. Proving that liberal politics and the liberal education system have completely failed Americans, because largely, today’s college students are yesterday’s 5th graders.

Bernie Sanders Scam Artist

Can Bernie Sanders live eight more years? Lets find out together.

One of the biggest reasons Sanders has no chance of even being elected is because “Working America” is much larger than “College America.” There are far more employed people in America than college students and stupid people. No where in any of the many work places I frequent have I heard anything positive about Bernie Sanders. Most working Americans think Sanders is a fool.

Sanders thinks a single-payer government-run system is the only way to provide universal care at an affordable cost. That’s not so: Many countries manage to cover everyone by other means. But the more immediate defect with his plan is that it has zero chance of being enacted.

Has Sanders forgotten how hard it was for Obama to get his plan passed — even though it resembled previous Republican plans, like the one created by Mitt Romney when he was governor of Massachusetts? And Obama had a Democratic Congress. The next Congress is likely to feature Republican control of one or both chambers.

To suggest President Sanders would be able to force a far more dramatic change through Congress is deluded or dishonest. His proposal serves only a political purpose: to suggest he’s bolder and more faithful to Democratic values than Hillary Clinton.

Building on Obamacare to expand coverage beyond the 90 percent of Americans who now have health insurance, as Clinton proposes, may sound less thrilling than junking it in favor of what people on the left see as the best possible system. Even her approach won’t be easy given GOP resistance. But unlike Sanders’ program, it actually has a chance of happening.

Walmart to Close 269 Stores

I wouldn’t read too much into this. Yes Walmart sales are down, but geographically speaking, Walmart has over saturated the market. Here in Los Angeles, there is a Walmart every couple of miles. Like Starbucks, There is no need from a Walmart across the street from a Walmart. There is a need to close stores that are so close together. Its a better way to manage your business. My biggest question is who is going to hire all the unemployed toothless people? JD

1262Walmart said Friday it plans to shutter 269 stores this year, including all 102 of its small-format Express stores. The move reflects a shift in tactics in which the retailing giant will focus more on building up its e-commerce firepower and improving its massive supercenters and grocery-centric Neighborhood Market stores.

As part of this strategy, the company said it will not move forward with plans to build two new supercenters in the District — one that was planned for Skyland Town Center in Southeast Washington and the other at Capitol Gateway Marketplace in Northeast Washington.

“Our experience over the last three years operating our current stores in DC has given us a fuller view on building and operating stores in the District,” the company said in a statement. “This decision will not affect our three existing stores and we look forward to continue serving these customers in the future.”

The store closures are to affect 16,000 jobs internationally, some 10,000 of those positions in the United States.

Even as Walmart plans to close hundreds of locations, it also intends to open more than 300 stores in the next year, including 50 to 60 supercenters in the United States and 85 to 95 Neighborhood Markets. The stores that are to be shuttered are ones that the retailer says account for less than 1 percent of global revenue.

Walmart had been testing the Express concept since 2011 as a way to reach a different kind of shopper and capture dollars from a different kind of shopping trip. Walmart Express stores were something of mashup between a dollar store and a small grocery, offering convenience-oriented food products but not a wide array of fresh produce or meats. The idea was that it could help Walmart win a greater share of so-called “fill-in trips,” when customers aren’t necessarily aiming to restock their pantry.

Plus, the store’s smaller footprint meant it could be a vehicle to allow Walmart to muscle its way into shopping centers and neighborhoods where a sprawling supercenter wouldn’t make sense. Back when they unveiled the Express format, executives said it would allow the chain to play “urban offense and rural defense.”

Is This The Lucky California Power Ball Winner?

If this guy is the Powerball winner, why would he not turn the ticket in and collect his winnings? I anm wondering if that’s the image from the nurse in Pomona that was pranked by her son and led to believe she won the Powerball. I doubt that the guy is the winner. Just another hoax.

A photo circulating on Instagram and Facebook showing a man holding a Power Ball ticket with the winning numbers is making it’s rounds around social media.

powerballThe photo uploaded by Instagram user “thisguysthelimit” says…”OMG I WON $1.5 BILLION!!!!!I’m posting this in case anyone tries to jack me this is proof. Look it up I bought in Chino Hills where I grew up! #powerball.”

The photo does, in fact, show what appears to be an authentic quick-pick ticket purchased for a whopping $2. The numbers all match the winning numbers and according to California Lotto officials the winning tickets was in fact sold in Chino Hills.

The 7/11 that reportedly sold the winning ticket is located at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway. The entire parking lot is jam-packed with spectators, media and people who are power ball crazy with excitement. According to Anna Estrada who is at the scene, the crowds are shouting “Chino Hills is #1”!!

Could this be the Lucky Power Ball Jackpot Winner? We will just have to wait and see.

Racist Al Sharpton Claims Academy Awards Are Racist

I have read an article from The Hollywood Insider and can really find no logic in Al Sharpton’s argument about the Academy Awards being racist. After all, 1,133 of the people that vote for “Best Actor and Best Actress” are actors and actresses themselves, and they can’t possibly be made up of only “white” people.

WCJ-images-oscars-alSharpton seems to think that because there are no black people nominated for the 2016 Oscars that by default its racist. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with talent and performances turned in by other actors that are not classified as white. In fact, I consider Al Sharpton a racist for even insinuating that the Academy is racist for not nominating any black actors in the first place, and if the Academy Award committee had any balls, they would send a press release saying just that. In fact, I will write a quick press release for the Academy Awards.

From: Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Re: Al Sharpton’s allegation of racism

Suitable for Press Release

“We have read the recent allegations of racism leveled by Mr. Sharpton and we wish to respond. Al Sharpton is a race baiting simpleton and a media whore. He has the intellect of a three year old and can barely form a cognitive sentence. The Academy questions why Mr. Sharpton is not in jail for tax evasion and that messy Tawana Brawley incident. We would also like to take great umbrage with the media for continuing to give Mr. Sharpton a platform to further divided the races. It serves no purpose except to stir up hate and discontent.”

That should be the response from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. But alas, they have no balls. Sharpton is a raicst claiming everyone else is racist. If the Academy Awards would simply attack him, he would have no credibility. JD
