If It Seems Easy You’re Doing It Wrong

Tucker Carlson won yesterday’s “best display of the Left’s hypocrisy” award – an award that could be given on an hourly basis if anybody had time to review all the entries.

Tucker created a montage of righteous Democrats proclaiming, angrily, that “nobody is above the law.” He then pointed out that Dems are doing precisely that by insisting that illegal aliens (as they are known to the non-woke crowd) should be allowed to stay in this country regardless of when or where they came from. It’s okay for them to break the law because the Empathatic Left has determined, without benefit of Congressional legislation, that the law is “unjust” and therefore does not apply. Which is pretty much the definition of being “above the law.”

Runner-up prize goes to Bernie Sanders for paying his staff a “living wage” of $15 an hour while simultaneously cutting their hours in order to afford it. There’s an economic lesson in there somewhere Bernie, it wouldn’t hurt if you tried to figure it out.

And while it’s not yet Liberal Loon Award day I’d still like to give honorable mention to Rashida Tlaib for her contribution to the Economic Illiteracy pool with her well thought out recommendation of raising the wages of tipped employees from $2.13 per hour to “$18-20” per hour.

“Think about that for one minute. People cannot live on those kind of wages, and I can’t allow people to be living off tips, you know, relying on tips for wages. It’s just not enough to support our families…

“Now I think it should be $20 — make sure America Rising hears that,” she continued. “It should be $20 an hour — $18 to $20 an hour at this point. … They say all of this is going to raise the cost, but I can tell you, milk has gone up, eggs have gone up, everything has gone up. The cost of a lot of things that we need has gone up already.

How this trained union rabble-rouser ended up in Congress is a travesty of self-governance.

Tied with Rashida for the same award and for the same reason is Kamala Harris. She upped the ante on the Medicare-for-all scam by contending that she will fund the $30 trillion single-payer national health-care program - without raising taxes on the middle class. Honestly, these liberal arts legislators – with or without law degrees - are so ignorant of rudimentary math and economics it’s no wonder they can’t live on their nearly $200K salaries.
