“JTF: the ‘everything for free’ scheme contains numerous flaws such as what wage will educators and doctors agree to work and what to do between Election and Inauguration Days when everyone of means says ‘hasta la vista, baby’?” by Chef Pedro Muňoz
FALL SESSION 2019
BLOG POST #3,313 AT THE AICP-END
345 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
Liz Warren has NO clue as to how she is going to accomplish anything other than via brute force and intimidation…
San Diego, CA 92122, 11-26-2019 Tuesday: Last week- the night after the Democratic debate- Joe Biden, the former vice president, was holding a town hall in, I believe, uh, the Palmetto State, when an illegal alien confronted him, whined about ‘all the deportations carried out by President Obama’ as though it was something of which, to NOT be proud. Caramba, amigos, what is wrong with these losers and how are there so MANY illegals living in South Carolina? What the heck is going on?
Now, Joe is not always fast on his feet (although in the debate, he slammed billionaire neo-environmentalist Tom Steyer over his wealth derived from coal-mining in Australia) but I wish he had confronted the illegal confronting him. He could have said to the man regarding the Obama deportations the following:
“I’m sorry we missed YOU. Tell me where YOU and YOUR family live and we will see that you join the rest of them nice and sound south of the border.”
Of course, no self-respecting Democrat would ever provoke one of their beloved illegal alien voters by saying something so bold and funny, as that quick retort. Can you imagine how the audience would have responded? There would have been howling and wailing, it would have sounded like an Amazonian jungle at the height of a summer night with a full moon overhead.
Still, it would have been hilarious and had the aging Democratic candidate offered one of his famous flashy smiles as he said it, it could have been one of those moments that would define the 2020 primary campaign.
Right now, we are witnessing Democratic candidates promising to give away the store if only you will vote for me. Liz Warren stands near the top promising to give everything away but there are some problems with this line of attack, namely, to fund EVERYTHING she promises means the wealthy will have to foot the cost whether they like it or NOT.
Sure, she claims it’s only a ‘couple of cents’ on their billionth-and-one greenback but for wealthy folks, those couple of cents do and will add up. In order to avoid having to dole out massive portions of their wealth to provide FREE healthcare and education to noncitizens, were she the nominee, the billionaires would be transferring their wealth out of the country and relocating not only their corporate offices offshore but also their physical locations as rapidly as possible. Who could blame them?
As this is the linchpin of the whole “FREE THIS AND THAT SCHEME,” like the collapse of Venezuela following “La Revolucion,” when the rich abandoned the country to the despots, the tax bite then descends on the upper middle classes, the middle class, and then the lower middle class until only the extreme poor remain.
Likewise, I have seen no white paper detailing how, exactly, doctors and educators are going to sign on to government-set rates of remuneration or even to whatever minimum wage the Democratic-Socialists impose on the people of the country.
I mean, if the government told us restauranteurs that we could only make so much and the rest of the profit was going to provide free meals NOT to impoverished American citizens but to impoverished illegal aliens, I would be loading up my AR-15 and taking to the streets along with millions of other indignant and livid Americans.
Besides that, the other weak point in the Liz Warren scheme of doing things is that from Election Day to Inauguration Day, there are about TWO MONTHS in between which is ample time for everyone with the wherewithal to transfer everything they possess outside the country and to then get the hell out of Dodge and move abroad- Ireland looks better by the day as does Lisbon. What would keep them here? Nothing Sen. Warren can do about forcing the folks with means to remain here so she can deplete them of their means.
There are some Democrats who might not be so bad but they do not stand a single chance. I agree with my colleague, Chef Olaf, that there is a “Core” or “Central Five,” to which, I would add two others- Amy Klobuchar and Tulsi Gabbard- making a “Core Seven.”
My proposed ”Core Seven” would be Sens. Cory Booker, Liz Warren, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, along with Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, and Joe Biden. Although for many, they leave much to be desired, they have the potential of winning the nomination.
That means that Tom Steyer (why is he even there? He is nothing more than a Cantiflas-like character clutching at his britches, a deer-in-the-headlights pretentious idiot), Andrew Yang, and everybody’s favorite cream puff Mayor Pete, can leave the race and do so now.
Now, I know that people are aghast at my saying Mayor Pete has no chance. Like it or not, he cannot win the nomination and everyone knows precisely why. He will never win the minority vote which is so important to any Democratic nominee.
Executive Chef Pedro MuñozMoreover, I do not believe he can win law enforcement over nor can he win Big Labor because in the end, NO one is going to bank on a poof because the poof can never win. Give him another 15-20 years and the country will be so warped that Mayor Pete can give it another shot in 2036 or 2040- I should be gone long before then.
At least, that is how I see it. Please, let me know what you think, mis amigos, and we can debate the issues. Thank you and join me tomorrow.
Adios, mis amigos. Nos vemos.

We decided to go this route to protect our identities from readers who make some virulent threats, which means we find it best to use cartoons instead of photos. Anyhow, I began my culinary career in the 1950’s and had the good fortune of working with many different chefs before meeting my good friend, Stinkbug, in the mid 1980’s in Bakersfield. I am still working part-time in my semi-retired years in my hometown in San Diego, CA.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:
Argent released an “anthology” of sorts, “Music from the Spheres,” on September 12, 1991. As their parent band, the Zombies releases numerous ‘best of’ compilations following a somewhat short career, Argent- a band with far more of a discography, began releasing some of their own seeing as how they have a lengthier number of albums from which to choose. This is a prodigious effort yet it lacks, get this- their biggest hit- “Hold Your Head Up,” but remains a wonderful introduction to a veteran 1970s rock band. We hope you will seek it out and add it to your ever-growing collection by visiting Amazon.com…you will be glad you did.
SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:
