I PROVIDE THIS brief clip because I’m a fun-providing sort of fellow.

The Unseen Moon brings it to you as part of its never-ending fight for Truth, Justice and the American Way.
WHERE HAVE we heard this malarky before?
Fighting for justice and equality.
Standing up for working families.
Taking on Wall Street.
Fighting for a living wage.
Yada, yada, yada.
Have you nodded off yet? Could these be promises from every presidential campaign in memory? But of course.
And the ad’s title: Real Change. Ring familiar?
Change You Can Believe In. Do you remember? And Barry did deliver on that promise, but little of it is positive. The Mideast is spinning out of control. Plus Russia, China are beefing up.
The U.S. economy slogs on. Racial conflicts escalate.
I believe every bit of it.
And the national debt, now at $20 trillion, has almost doubled during Barry’s presidency.
Oh, dear. Where is leadership?
But my favorite vow of Bernie’s is: Free public colleges! The same thing that Barry has proposed recently. Free!
Of course, there is no free lunch nor free college. Somebody is paying. For every student getting “free” tuition, somebody is toiling somewhere and paying taxes, underwriting a student whether the worker wishes to or not. Pure coercion.
More socialist silliness reflecting total cluelessness. It’s stupendous that so many Americans cheer him on.
But why not? “Free” sounds great. Manna from heaven. Money falling from trees. Silly ole Bern. Daffy supporters.
I do hope you are not one of them.
Putting Bern behind us, let’s turn to a superior option, Ted Cruz. Look at this Cruz ad. Instead of hoary lines like “taking on Wall Street,” “supporting the family” and absurdities like “free” college, Cruz focuses here on a specific, grave danger.
The Mohammedan threat.
After eight years of the nancy Barry, Ted Cruz would be a stupendous replacement in the Oval Office.
WERE IT NOT so disruptive and destructive, the seething obsession with race in the United States would be hilarious.
Are citizens daily hurling accusations of racism at fellow citizens in China, Russia, Bolivia, Kenya, Israel, ad nauseam? Of course not.
Slavery caused it, you might say. But slavery existed in South America too. Slavery has existed throughout human history in almost all corners of the globe, and it still exists in some zones. People with all manner of skin tones, including white people, have been slaves.
Yet this perpetual hurling of “You’re a racist!” is almost exclusively contained nowadays in societies dubbed liberal democracies.
It is a political tool used by leftists. Sure, conservatives fling it on occasion too, but that’s because it’s a filthy habit they’ve picked up from leftists. It’s become so common that everybody uses it. It’s now a late-stage cancer eating the innards of society.
The cancer is not racism itself — not at all — but the constant hurling of the epithet and the grievous damage it’s causing.
Racism is part of human nature, and always will be. People, many of whom are not too bright, look askance at those who are different. You will never, ever stop this. You must live with it, and try to ease its effects as much as possible, occasionally with sensible laws.
Were it possible, I would come up there and rap you all across the knuckles with a hardwood cane. I would do it until you’re bloody and howling with pain. It would be good and just.
