The Deep Blue of the Northeast, West Coast

and How to Fix It

I’m not talking oceans here.

This is the fifth and final post (Yea!) in my midterm election series. Just so you know, I’m burnt out on the subject too. OK, let’s get it over with.

As I mentioned in a previous post 800 People, the left has nowhere else to go but a Deeper Shade of Blue. This is because the blue states are losing their population to red states. The opposition is leaving town and taking their votes with them. Without opposition, blue states are locked in a death spiral drawing them into a deeper hue of blue.

I’m not sure about the redness of Alaska and Georgia is purple at best.

Another thing the mass migration represents is a shift in money. The people moving to The Free State of Florida not only bring their vote, but they also bring their money. That’s because they’re the ones who have the most to lose, and they’re the ones who can afford to relocate.

These are the people who represent the opposition and the only barrier to deep blue progressivism. The people in the northeast and west coast regions have prospered for too long. They’ve lost the notion of freedom being something of value, something worth fighting for, and replaced it with a false sense of equality. To these people, equality is the only thing worth fighting for.

But there’s a huge problem with their premise. Equality, to its Nth degree, is communism. Take for example, any millionaire in any voting district across America. Is there a single one that would seriously trade places with a homeless person? Not on your life. But talking about equality makes them feel good, and voting Democratic makes them feel like they’re doing something about it. Why do they need to feel good about what they do? Because they had it so easy and for so long, they feel guilty about their good fortune. For them, it’s all about the feeling.  

Dainty Men make Hard Times, Hard Times make Strong Men, Strong Men make Easy Times, Easy Times make Dainty Men.

Reference my post The Dainty Men in America for an explanation of the above. It’s easy to see what stage America is in today, and it only leads to hard times.

Obviously, the people who stay in blue states (as each fall deeper into the abyss) are the ones who will suffer the most. This is the fertile ground communism needs to grow. The dainty men (the commoners) who think everything should be given, not earned, will trade freedom for the promise of equality and then, be forced to settle for meager sustenance or die. It sounds like every communist state on the planet to me.

The battle lines are being drawn as we speak.

I mentioned that there’s a way to fix this horrid outcome, and here it is. It will take cunning, hard work, and perfect timing, but it can be done. First, we need to craft better candidates. Crafting better candidates requires tedious cultivation. These are not going to be conservatives. They’ll have to be what progressive voters consider as moderate. In blue states, these candidates must infiltrate every level of government without exception. Furthermore, they need to be supported by moderate conservatives in every appointed office.

The hearts and minds of the Dainty Populists will have to change. The Democratic-Communist Party of America will offer a free and easy ride. Conservatives will offer what? We need an answer that’s more attractive — I told you it would be difficult.

And then, if we want to change the rules, we need to play by the rules as they exist today and win. Otherwise, we will keep losing elections we shouldn’t, and we’ll never see a conservative majority again. What a mess we have. Freedom is just one generation from oblivion, and time is running out. Let’s fix it while we can.

PS – If we aren’t careful, the next Civil War will be Capitalist vs. Communist (south vs. north). Where have I heard that before?

Benedict Arnold in a Half-Shell, Rise of the Turtle

Mitch McConnell is the republican Nancy Pelosi.

This is the second in my series of posts to explain what happened to the 2022 Red Tsunami, and why it turned into a gentle red tide. In case you missed it, here’s the first.

Another crucial reason for the mid-term fizzle, one that isn’t getting the attention it should, rests squarely on the shoulders of Mitch McConnell. Of course, if you’re a Democrat or part of the democratic propaganda machine, then you have reason to celebrate the “Turtle.” But if you’re a Republican who thought real and immediate change was going to begin on November 8, 2022, it pains me to say this, but it won’t. And a big sarcastic thank you needs to be extended to — the “Turtle.”

Do you see it? Do you?

As Nancy Pelosi was so adept at doing in the Democratic Party, Mitch McConnell attempted to use the Republican Party to concentrate his personal power to the detriment of the rest of us. And he was successful. With his reelection as Senate Minority Leader, he will continue to influence the daily lives of the subservient (you and me), while at the same time, substantially increasing the fortune he’s already amassed.

Political office was never meant to be a viable source of income, or a career, which is why elective office comes with a relatively small paycheck, as it should. Politics was supposed to be a civic duty, a way to give back, not take.

Maybe you can explain to me why someone will spend millions of dollars every election cycle to be elected to a job that pays approximately $170,000 per year. While you’re at it, maybe you can explain how congressmen always retire as millionaires. Not sometimes, always, how is that possible?

The way to take careers out of politics, and bring civic duty back to political office, is through term limits. Will there still be outside financial influence from lobbyists? Sure, but at an exponentially reduced rate. I feel bad (only a little), for those few who became career politicians and still keep the needs of the people on the forefront, but it’s time for term limits.

So, let’s get back to my lead-in topic.

How did the “Turtle” retain his power? The answer lies in the power of the purse. He intentionally diverted funds away from the campaigns of rising star Republicans who would vote against him as Minority Leader. These were the no-name newcomers who bought into the idea that fresh blood was needed to effect change. And they were right.

But changing back to American values like fair elections, no indoctrination in public schools, and good old-fashioned hard work instead of handouts, is going to cost money too. Lots of it, and probably more than the Democrats spent getting us to the Woke Hell we live in today.

McConnell knows this better than anyone, and by diverting funds the way he did, he guaranteed democratic victories in key states that were winnable. So rather than lose his position as Minority Leader (and all the benefits it brings him), he sacrificed a senate majority and the welfare of a nation. Who else does this sound like? Does Nancy Pelosi ring a bell? Mitch and Nancy are two peas in a pod.

It’s the deep state at work, and the ones who should be the most infuriated (after the American People) are the republican Senators who just had their power whittled to a nub. If they don’t organize and take decisive action against this Benedict Arnold in a Half-Shell, it will be irrefutable evidence of the Deep State and its deleterious influence on the American way of life.

It bears repeating because it’s a major reason why the Red Tsunami turned into a gentle red tide. Mitch McConnell, by using his authority to distribute funds, withheld funds from Republicans who were poised to win. Why would Turtle McConnell snatch defeat from victory as established republicans always do? The answer is bus driver simple, self-interest, both political (power) and financial (greed).

Pelosi and McConnell are two sides of the same coin, career politicians. The “Turtle” proved it by showing his true colors. They aren’t Red, White, or even Blue. His color is Green, greener than the greenest sea turtle.

I know it isn’t a sea turtle, but come on …. He’s the perennial poster boy for term limits.

Our founding fathers never considered the possibility of career politicians. Political service was a civic duty you took on at great expense because you wanted to work for your country, not yourself.

Inflation: Why Does it Hurt So Good for Democrats

And Feels so bad for the Rest of Us.

Part 1

The Good Ole Days (1977-1981), then and today.

If the years 1977-1981, seem like a random selection to you when referencing the here and now, you’re simply too young to remember. 77-81 were the Jimmy Carter years and inflation reached a high of 14.8% with a Consumer Price Index (CPI) of 80.1. In 1980, inflation stayed over 14% for more than four consecutive months, with an average annual rate of 13.5%. These are the numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), so they must be true. 1980 CPI and Inflation Rate for the United States | CPI Inflation Calculator (2022 Updated Monthly)

First, let me apologize for throwing out a bunch of numbers right from the start. Don’t worry. This is Davyd’s blog, and you know I’m not going to bore you with statistical analysis, fudged numbers, and theoretical assumptions designed to cloud your ability to understand the truth. I live in the real world where working is a means of survival, not a euphemism for getting filthy rich off the labor of others through taxation i.e., The Big Guy (Let’s Go Brandon).

According to Hunter’s laptop, you sure did.

So, why does the Biden Administration tell us inflation is only 8.2%, but the same bag of groceries I bought last year costs 10% more this year; and closer to 20% more than the year before that? For those in Rio Linda, that’s two years ago.

Here’s a simple way to think of it. It’s kind of like compound interest. When you borrow money, you can pay straight interest; $10 for 1 year at 10% is $11. Or you can pay compound interest, which is interest on the principal of $10, plus interest on interest accrued over time. Simply put, you’re paying interest on principal and interest.

As I understand it, inflation is somewhat similar. If you buy a loaf of bread and it costs $1, one year later at 10% annual inflation, that same loaf of bread will cost $1.10. But if inflation stays at 10%, the next year the same loaf of bread costs $1.21. In other words, to get the same loaf of bread from two years ago, we now have to pay the $1 base cost, plus 10% for last year’s inflation, plus 10% on the whole thing for this year’s inflation. And that’s why we’re paying inflation on past inflation.

Now take that cost increase and apply it across the board to everything you buy and yeah, this is what the cost of living in Biden’s America feels like. Keep in mind, I didn’t even mention the fact that yesteryear’s loaf of bread was 20 ounces, and today’s loaf is only 16.

Democrats also feel the pain, but they feel it differently. To them, it’s almost masochistic in nature because it’s the pain of change in America; from a capitalist abomination full of deplorable individualists providing for themselves; to a socialist utopia full of mind-numbed robots willing to be subjugated for mere sustenance (otherwise known as Communism).

————

But wait Davyd, you’ve told us why the inflation rate feels like 20%, but you haven’t told us why the Biden Administration says it’s only 8.2%. Also, you mentioned the Consumer Price Index (CPI). What’s that got to do with this horror story?

Well, as bad as it already is, the truth is about to get even worse. The CPI and how it’s manipulated, is a big reason why the Biden Administration can look at 18% inflation and call it 8.2%. By the way, 8.2% inflation is really bad. Don’t just shake your head and get used to the new normal. It’s not normal; it’s the free market screaming for help.

But before we dive into some more numbers, for now, just let the basics settle in and keep reminding yourself that we are paying inflation on past inflation.  Then, when you’re ready for the horrific truth, check out my next post. I promise the numbers will be bus driver simple to understand. And when it’s over, you’ll know why the Biden administration can claim 8.2% inflation when in reality, it feels like 18.2% or higher.

PS – They fudge the numbers on inflation, employment, illegal immigration, elections, national debt, and most everything else including national security. This post is only focusing on inflation.

Holy-Sh … Crap! When you start to list it all, it’s truly amazing how much damage the democrats caused in less than two years.
