“Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.”

For all the blathering we’ve heard over the past few months about how “systemic racism” is the nation’s biggest mortal threat, it’s become sparklingly clear that the real problem is systemic stupidity.

The country is currently in the throes of fatal conniptions over idea that there’s some solution to “inequality.” Not for a second has anyone paused to ponder that perhaps the true cause of inequality is the fact that people aren’t equal—never have been, never will be.

CHICAGO – Alyssa Blanchard was so traumatized after being carjacked at gunpoint last week outside her Calumet Heights home that she’s now scared to go outside.

Chicago police say a group of children, ages 10 to 17, carjacked Blanchard and at least 15 other people since late June — wreaking havoc on Blanchard’s generally peaceful South Side neighborhood.

We can nullify the law too, guys.

“If schools aren’t going to reopen, we’re not suggesting pulling funding from education but instead allowing families … (to) take that money and figure out where their kids can get educated if their schools are going to refuse to open,” Betsy DeVos said to Fox News during an interview.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has pointed out the senselessness of keeping schools closed throughout the year due to coronavirus mass hysteria.

“Take for example government experts who continue to call for schools and day care to stay closed or that recommend restrictions that make it impossible for a school to function. There are examples from all across the United States and around the world that show that young children rarely spread the virus,” Paul told Dr. Anthony Fauci, referencing countries such as Denmark, France and Germany that have reopened schools without problems.

“No spike when schools are opened. Central planners have enough knowledge somehow to tell a nation of some 330 million people what they can and can’t do,” Paul added.

Right now, teachers are threatening going on a nationwide strike if they are forced to actually do their jobs. They believe that the taxpayers should subsidize them as they sit on their…Read more »
