    Socialism is a killer.

    "CARACAS, Venezuela — As hyperinflation spirals toward 1 million percent, Venezuelans are confronting a deepening crisis that is pulverizing their incomes and spreading hunger. Increasingly, the line between survival and starvation is determined not by having a job or an education, but something else.

    Access to U.S. dollars.

    Long decried as a symbol of imperialism by President Nicolás Maduro, the American greenback is now king in a country broken by mismanagement, corruption and years of failed socialist policies. The dollar’s importance has soared as the local currency, the bolívar, has become nearly worthless.

    This week, for instance, the price of a dozen eggs topped 2.6 million bolívares — equal to two weeks’ pay at the minimum wage. But for a Venezuelan who can exchange dollars at the black market rate, those same eggs are a relative bargain, costing only 60 cents."

    THE WASHINGTON POST, In socialist Venezuela, the U.S. dollar becomes king, By Rachelle Krygier, August 2, 2018.

    If there is no bias in sampling, you don't need a huge sample. Today, there is a built in bias because of the violent thought police who will attack you, your kids, your friends, your place of work, and your customers if you don't think like they think. Then they look in the mirror and tell themselves they are the tolerant ones.

    Thats all fine and dandy, but you do know there’s no objective reason to vote Republican this year, right?

    Less than half the nation approves of Trumps work, the rating sitting at 44.4%. Obviously Trump isn’t the second coming of Jesus you Trumpets wish to believe. Reality hurts, doesn’t it?

    So you'll agree that the New York Times and Washington Post, CNN and almost every major daily newspaper in the U.S. is just as biased as Fox News? Many leftists will disagree with this.

    Umm, you were the person who alleged I was a Russian.

    That was pretty stupid, wasn't it?

    Oh, don't leave! This was just becoming interesting.

    I was looking forward to discussing the Democratic Party's extreme leftward tilt under Obama, and how that led the party to lose almost 1,000 state and legislative seats since 2010. I was also hoping to learn the latest Team Blue deflection; after Raaaccciiissst! and Ruussiiaan! I was greatly anticipating what the next excuse to flee a debate might be...
