Laissez le bon temps rouler

Asking the difference between Illinois and Venezuela is soon to reach the same point on the economic map. While we are considering this pair, forget not Puerto Rico, another glorious example in Socialism successes. But the former two are the real stars, paragons of the terminal condition of any Socialist construct. We believe you know about Venezuela, probably heard about Puerto Rico so lets concentrate on Illinois.

Illinois in danger of entering financial ‘death spiral’

Illinois’ budget crisis has become so dire that the state is in danger of entering a financial “death spiral,” as a prominent ratings agency threatens to downgrade the state’s credit score to “junk” status.
Doing so would increase the cost of borrowing, worsening the deficit and making it even harder for taxpayers to dig out of the hole.

“We’re in a death spiral—Illinois has the worst pension crisis in the nation and needs the boldest reforms,” Ted Dabrowski, Illinois Policy Institute’s vice president of policy, told Fox News. “There is no doubt that junk bond rating is on its way.”

S&P Global Ratings has warned the agency will likely lower Illinois’ credit rating to below investment grade if feuding lawmakers fail to agree on a state budget for a third straight year.

Lawmakers are now in a special session in an effort to break the budget impasse, prodded by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who has referred to his state as a “banana republic.”

The state currently faces $130 billion in unfunded pension obligations and a backlog of unpaid bills worth $15 billion. A downgrade to “junk” status would increase the cost of borrowing for critical infrastructure, or refinancing existing debt. [snip]

Through all this the Dems won’t agree to cap spending and cut programs that cannot be funded. What programs would those be? How about schools closing for starters, then no road repairs and state property maintenance.

Many taxpayers fled the state over the past half decade followed by businesses looking to avoid the onerous taxes. The current situation isn’t going to improve in the future not with a S&P downgrade of the bonds.

Dead broke Watermelons

With all this changing climate, one would believe we would need all the wool we could get for cold weather gear, what with the arctic ice growing and Greenland being not so green.

Instead we’re being fleeced badly and left on the outside of the cozy Watermelon Redistribution Clubhouse of the Climate Change Socio-Marxist Group. Now badly are we taken? This badly:

With President forgoing our loitering in that idiot Paris Accord, we just folded our money and put it back in our pocket. Let those other freeloaders front the loot if they’re so worries about the Planet.
As the President says:

Clown Show

This is what is running the public education institutions. No wonder kids emerge from schools with less than an informed view of the world. This self proclaimed c*ck holster decided his opinion was the only one that mattered; everyone else better shut-up.

Asst. Principal Resigns After Screaming, Swearing at Pro-Life Teens

The Pennsylvania assistant principal who ranted and swore at teenage anti-abortion protestors on a public sidewalk resigned yesterday.

CBS Philadelphia reports, Zach Ruff, who was Dean of Students at Downingtown-Area School District, resigned after video captured him in a confrontation between two teen anti-abortion activists on a public sidewalk outside of the STEM Academy in Downingtown.

The April 21st incident was caught on video and showed Huff berating the teens.

In the footage he yells, “I wish to protect my students from unsightly things that they don’t need to see!”

Which makes perfect sense because Huff says his school teaches science, which obviously never includes any bodily functions. Surely images of a fetus are nothing scientific, right?

The explicit video shows the argument stretching on for nearly 20 minutes.

Ruff says: “You and Trump can go to hell” and “Listen here son, I’m as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me.”

Ruff even sings “I Love a Parade” in an attempt to silence the protesters. [snip]

You have to love how the Left always displays tolerance at every chance they get. Nary a bigoted cell in their apotheosis.

In a pig’s butt!

Mother’s Day Toons

In places like CA and other havens of the Loony Left, they try to scramble the kids brains. Kids know they’re nuts.

 

Where reality reigns, normalcy also follows giving kids a solid grounding.

 

Happy Mother’s Day

 

to the sane.

Careful what you ask for…

…you might get it!

Just ask any Dumbocrat, they asked and they got; now they’re complaining loudly.

Dem Senator: Why Yes–A Lot Of Us Called For Comey’s Resignation

James Comey is no longer leading the FBI, but Democrats are still not happy. In fact, they’re throwing out the Nixonian and Watergate comparisons. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is now calling for a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence. Yet, let’s also not forget that the Democrats, for the most part, were calling for Mr. Comey’s firing ever since he informed Congress that the FBI would be reviewing more emails 11 days before Election Day. They wanted his head on a pike.

It’s a question that MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson brought up with Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), where the senator admitted that a lot of party members wanted Comey out at the FBI.

“So should he be out as head of the FBI, set aside everything else, did you want to see him gone?” asked Jackson.

“It’s absolutely true that Democrats have been very critical of James Comey and many of us did call for his resignation,” replied Murphy.

Over at CNN, Sen. Ed. Markey (D-MA) said this firing could throw the nation into a constitutional crisis, though he couldn’t necessarily detail why that would be the case when pressed by anchor Poppy Harlow.

Markey reiterated the tired and unsubstantiated allegations that Russian intelligence colluded with members of the Trump team to influence the election. State-funded news organizations and social media trolls did try and interfere, but their impact was not pivotal. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg noted fake news stories about Clinton did not sway the election. As for the collusion aspect, zero evidence has been found. None. But how is this a constitutional crisis? John Berman asked Markey directly if he felt President Trump’s actions regarding the dismissal of Mr. Comey violated the Constitution. Markey couldn’t answer; giving a bungled answer about how the Constitution provides an election for president that isn’t influenced by foreign powers, and how he feels that Trump fired Comey for other reasons, specifically over the Bureau’s investigation into the Trump-Russia links. The latter hasn’t been confirmed, and yes—the president can fire the FBI director. Also, it’s not like this will completely stop the investigation into the Russian collusion allegations that have (again) so far yielded zero evidence.

This does put the freude in the schaden, oh yes it does. How the screeching starts with the frantic arm waving like someone swatting bees. LOVE IT!
