I can really understand why. I’ve written about this before, but apparently, the Democrat National Committee, on their official Twitter site, posted the following:
That has a lot of Democrats upset because as Joe Biden pointed out, he was going to send $2,000 checks “immediately” once Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff got elected to the US Senate from Georgia. In fact, this was one of their online ads:
As you can plainly see, there is no mention of this being a $1,400 check! I am seeing $2,000, how about you?
Well, as you can imagine, it’s drawn a lot of ire from the Democrat voters. Here is a smattering of what they had to say:
Gaslighting the very people who trusted & voted for you.
Amazing that your side easily sails under this extremely low bar every time.
$600 “down payment” huh? weird that no one called it that –…

But it’s quite common for critics to assert that Chile is a bad example because many of the reforms were enacted by General Augusto Pinochet, a dictator who seized power in 1973. And some of those critics also attack Milton Friedman for urging Pinochet to liberalize the economy and reduce the burden of government.
Are these critics right?
To answer that question, I very much recommend the following cartoon strip by Peter Bagge. Published by Reason, it accurately depicts the efforts of reformers to get good reforms from a bad government.
It starts in 1973, with a group of Chilean economists, known as the “Chicago Boys,” who wanted…

Members of the House of Representatives held a hearing Wednesday to consider legislation that would establish a commission to make proposals for reparations to be paid to African-Americans and decide whether a national apology for slavery should be issued…Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, the primary sponsor of H.R. 40, made clear the reparations commission the bill would create is not merely to engage in an academic exercise.
“Sheila Jackson-Lee might be the dumbest person in congress. She might even be the dumbest person outside congress. If there were ever a global championship for idiots, the country could send her there. And leave her there; because unlike Lassie, she wouldn’t be able find her way back on her own.” — Daniel Greenfield (Sheila Jackson-Lee: Racist and Moron )
The incomparable Sheila “I demand to be treated like a queen” Jackson-Lee is the reigning champion imbecile in America’s…

“A plague shall fall upon the world. After, a feeble man shall rule the Western World with a Jezebel. The people will be damaged and subjugated by a fool ruler. The great eagle shall suffer and fall.” –Nostradamus
Whether the old French stargazer penned the above quatrain, or whether it was discovered in a mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnall’s porch, it’s a prophecy whose time, unfortunately, has come.
America’s foes were not atop enemy tanks that rolled through the empty streets of the nation’s capitol. Instead, they rode in upon a wave of suspect ballots provided in the dead of night by furtive operatives and unsavory associates of the Democrat party. And when the authorities who should have been responsible for investigating allegations of voter fraud refused to do so, outrage on the part of the opposition boiled over into mayhem. Intentionally mislabeling the turmoil as “insurrection”, the…

America is becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes” under President Biden’s leadership, feminist author and former Democratic adviser Naomi
Wolf told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday. Wolf, who served as an adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, told host Tucker Carlson that in her view, the United States is swiftly “moving into a coup situation, a police state” as a result of Biden’s ongoing coronavirus-related economic shutdowns.
Wolf added that she believes the orders are being improperly extended under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.”
Liberals ignore the threat from the Left because they are blinded by fear of the Right and Republicans. Abortion is the main division.

The order shows Acting Energy Secretary David Huizenga did not waive environmental restrictions to allow for maximum energy output, instead ordering ERCOT to utilize all resources in order to stay within acceptable emissions standards – including purchasing energy from outside the state.
…Moreover, the order instructed an “incremental amount of restricted capacity” to be sold to ERCOT at “a price no lower than $1,500/MWh,” an increase of over 6,000 percent over February 2020 prices of $18.20.
