The words are being removed since it ‘offended’ the feelings of some mushwits. However when the Left wishes to ‘offend’ it’s perfectly fine.

This billboard in Texas tells liberals to get lost. After backlash, it’s coming down

“Howdy, y’all,” is the folksy, welcoming greeting that has made Texas known for a relaxed, down-home charm over the years.

But that’s not the message motorists are getting from a billboard causing a stir on social media.

“Liberals,” the billboard reads. “Please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS.” [snip]

“I was shocked that it traveled that fast,” Burkett said. “I believe in free speech, but this country is divided enough as it is. I’ve spoken with the client, and he’s agreed that it should come down. We’ll be reimbursing him. [snip]

Why back down from some offended twit? Taking down the statement becomes the more offensive act.

looks like Canada wants to play in the big league. Bring it on. The boycott will last as long until a Canuck needs medical treatment and is told in Canada they have to wait 18 months. Southward they will head, doing what they do now. Having lived near the Canadian border in Vermont the cross border shopping is one way. Canadians come over for gas, cheaper goods and many places take the Canadian currency at par..

Canadians boycott US products, cancel vacations to America

Blame America.

Canadians have taken to practicing pocketbook diplomacy in defense of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is caught in a trade war of words with President Trump, by boycotting American goods and canceling vacations to the United States, according to a report.

Shoppers are shunning Kentucky bourbon, California wine and Florida oranges, and avoiding American companies like Starbucks, Walmart and McDonald’s, Canadian network CTV News reported on Wednesday. [snip]

Boycotting the likes of McD’s Wal-Mart and others will just hurt the Canadian owners of the small shops and the larger companies can layoff workers to cover reduced sales. Watch for the results, you’ll know when the screaming starts in the unemployment lines.

Observations

Snowflakes, you’re attending what is purported to be an institution of learning, obviously not higher, which should promote reasoning, logic and a predilection to learn from other’s experiences.

Please elaborate on how you can endorse Communism/Socialism when you can see first hand the finished product of that form of political idiocy, to wit: Venezuela

Venezuela’s Long Road to Ruin

Few countries have provided such a perfect example of socialist policies in practice.

Word from Caracas is that locals have taken to scouring city streets for plastic garbage bags full of rubbish and, when they find them, emptying the contents so that they can resell the bags.

This sounds absurd, but it is believable in a country where extreme poverty has spread like the plague. Human capital is fleeing. Oil production is plummeting, and the state-owned oil company is in default. The garbage bag, imported with dollars, is a thing of value.

If anything was more predictable than the mess created by Hugo Chávez’s Marxist Bolivarian Revolution, it is the pathetic effort by socialists to deny responsibility. The Socialist Party of Great Britain tweeted recently that Venezuela’s problem is that socialism has yet to be tried. It blamed the crisis on “a profit-driven capitalist economy under leftist state-control.” Even more preposterous is the claim by some academics that economic liberalism in the 1980s spawned the socialism that has destroyed the country.

Shopping in Caracas

Learning from history is impossible if the narrative is wrong. So let’s clear the record: By the time Chávez was elected, Venezuela already had 40 years of socialism under its belt and precious little, if any, experience with free markets. [snip]

When Venezuela promulgated its 1961 constitution, Betancourt immediately suspended Article 96, which read: “All can freely engage in the profitable activity of their choice, without any limitations other than those provided for in this Constitution and those established by law for security, health or other reasons of social interest.” [snip]

Rent control in Venezuela dates to 1939 but was not enforced by Pérez Jiménez. In August 1960 Betancourt revived it, passing a new rent-control law and prohibitions on eviction. Since then, “not one apartment rental building has been built,” writes Vladimir Chelminski in his 2017 book, “Venezuelan Society Checkmated.” The legendary slums that climb Caracas’s hillsides are a testament to this socialist stupidity. [snip]

Chávez was inaugurated in February 1999, in the midst of a recovery in oil prices and with the bolivar at 576 to the dollar. He tripled down on socialism, exacerbating a long history of destroying capital that would lead to today’s disaster.

According to the narrative Snowflakes believe, all the damage to the Country are caused by every and anything other than Socialism and it’s offshoots.

A perfect quote, from Robert Heinlein, fits well here.“A generation, which ignores history, has no past — and no future.”

Six Months Out: The 10 Most Vulnerable Senators in 2018

Senate Democrats are still defending 10 states that President Donald Trump won in 2016, but six months out from Election Day, the most [snip]vulnerable senator remains a Republican.[snip]

The Democrats’ odds of flipping a few GOP-held open seats in Arizona and Tennessee have increased over the past six months, but this list — like the one we did a year out from Election Day — ranks incumbents most likely to lose — not seats most likely to flip. That means nine of the 10 senators are Democrats, with the second and third spots remaining unchanged.  [snip]

Although some Republicans have fretted that likely GOP challenger Josh Hawley wasn’t living up to expectations, McCaskill is still one of the most vulnerable incumbents. Hawley’s fundraising caused some concern, but he also shook up his team, bringing in experienced GOP fundraiser Katie Walsh, according to Politico. Some operatives say Hawley could be hurt by his connection to disgraced Missouri GOP Gov. Eric Greitens, but Hawley’s team says the scandals won’t affect him. Republicans say Missouri is moving to the right, and point to Trump’s continued popularity in the Show-Me State. [snip]

The troubled ten are :

  1. Bob Casey (D) PA
  2. Sherrod Brown (D) Ohio
  3. Tammy Baldwin (D) Wisc
  4. Jon Tester (D) Mont
  5. Bill Nelson (D) Fla
  6. Joe Manchin III (D) W.VA
  7. Heidi Heitkamp (D) ND
  8. Joe Donnelly (D) Ind
  9. Clair McCaskill (D) Mo
  10. Dean Heller (R) Nev

None of these will be missed in the Senate and the Donks will get a bit of comeuppance.

Memorial Day thoughts for the Snowflakes

Some of the reasons why we fight for this Country. These are Politically Correct.

The Jackasses in ‘Land of Fruits and Nuts’ delivers a bushel of filberts in the Congressional races. Since Hillary won here, many believe that it is their birthright to have only Marxists in office in those districts.

 

Democrats Go All-Out to Avoid Disaster in California House Races

National Democrats, confronting mushrooming political chaos across Southern California, are pouring millions of dollars into congressional races to avert a self-inflicted disaster that could undermine their chances at taking control of the House.

After months of optimism that the state’s June 5 primary would position them to pick off seven Republican-held districts in November — a substantial down payment on reclaiming the House — Democrats are now trying to ensure that they do not hurt themselves because of their unusually crowded slates of candidates.

With so many Democrats running, the party’s fear is that the vote will be splintered, allowing Republicans — who have fewer candidates — to dominate some primaries. The party and allied groups are spending more than $4 million on just three campaigns, intervening in one contest to prop up a favored candidate; attacking a Republican from the right in another; and even reminding people not to waste their votes on “ghost candidates” who have dropped out yet remain on the ballot. [snip]

To add to their confusion, the Jackasses usual disregard for legalities bites hard on the tukis.

After three of the Democrats opposing Mr. Rohrabacher had taken a turn speaking at the forum, held at a synagogue, the moderator briefly came back on stage to alert the audience that the parking lot was so crowded the police intended to ticket those cars parked more creatively than legally.

The overflow of Priuses and Mercedes was a particularly vivid reminder of the California candidate logjam. Confusion and frustration among Democrats here only seems to grow by the day, as the state and national party back different contenders and spending sprays forth like an out-of-control garden hose. Some voters are not sure who to back to feel confident that a Democrat will advance past June 5, and they increasingly worry that Republicans will foil the party’s chances to stop President Trump’s agenda in the House next year. [snip]

In this situation, the Napoleon quote co,mes to mind, “Never interrupt your opponent while he is making a mistake.” There is much braying in the Donkey camp.
