The grass is greener

I CHANGED political affiliations in 2007. Blame Barry Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright. As some folks have said, I did not leave the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party left me.

I am ever amazed at the quantity of otherwise intelligent people who have not seen the light. Why, even blacks, that most-brainwashed of the U.S. citizenry, are coming to their senses and leaping the fence. Bless Candace Owens. I hope I live long enough to see her as the first real black president. First woman too.

As I’ve mentioned numerous times, I come from a sizable pack of Democrats. My last ex-wife, if memory serves, was a Bernie fan in 2016. She emailed me a few months ago asking what I saw in Trump. She seemed genuinely perplexed. I gave her a few reasons why and asked why she was not a Trump fan. Got no answer.

For her birthday last December, I sent her a MAGA cap. No reaction to that either. Maybe it was poached by porch pirates. I hear that happens above the border.

A friend sent the following visuals yesterday. Enjoy. And consider jumping the fence to the right side if you haven’t already done so. And don’t sit on the fence, which is just as bad, perhaps worse. This is no time for waffling. Be brave. We’d love to have you.

Good advice for black folks

HERE’S ONE OF my favorite black gals, Candace Owens.

She speaks so clearly that even professors at universities like Vassar, Reed and Brown can easily understand.

If you’re sitting at a green-felt table with your homies and a deck of cards, and the dealer tosses you the famous “Black Card,” fling it back at him, or on the floor, or into that trash can in the corner.

Everyone will be better off.

(Note: This is one of an occasional series of political/cultural videos that, if watched entirely, will make you smarter than you might have been otherwise. I include them here as a public service. There is no financial benefit to me.)

Candace’s Three Verticals

CANDACE OWENS rose to internet fame fairly recently. A number of factors caused this: She is smart. She speaks well. She’s black. She’s conservative.

It’s those last two traits that rattle the brains (such as they are) of leftists. A black conservative does not fit into their world view.

If you’ve never heard of her, I suggest you pull your nose out of The New York Times and Mother Jones, just for a few moments.

I subscribe to her YouTube channel and have seen most of her astute videos. This one, however, stands out. Her “three verticals” state clearly the primary problems facing young people, especially blacks, in today’s America.
