Let us hope New Hampshire goes better than, uh, Iowa did…
Delano, CA 93216, 02-11-2020 Tuesday: Whoa, Nellie, today is the day when the Democrats in New Hampshire are going to the polls, hopefully, to do a better job than the duds in Iowa did. While I am not knocking the state of Iowa and its people, one must ask, “What the hell, people, what the hell went wrong there? You used to do reliable caucuses, everyone knew the results by the following morning but this time, they must have been so out of whack that the Democratic Party machine had to cover them up. Again, I say, what the hell?”
Now, I suspect the reason WHY things went to hell in Iowa is that the projected winner failed to materialize and the one that supposedly did win was not the winner. Granted, I think that while everyone was hoping that Joe Biden would somehow finally win the state, most likely, it was the old commie who won it, Bernie Sanders.
There is no way in hell that I think the Democratic Party wants Bernie Sanders to be the candidate, no flipping way. The reason I say this is not because they do not agree with many of his policies but to have a guy who proudly thumps his chest like Eugene V. Debs did and proclaim himself a ‘proud socialist,’ that is not the enticement that is going to lure many people into the fold other than the young and uneducated who hear the word “FREE” and are all in.
What the young people must understand is this: NOTHING in this life is free other than STDs and no one wants to go down that road. When the liberals tell you that you are going to get this FREE and that FREE, better hold on to your pocketbooks and wallets because they are going to rob you blind.
Socialism comes in with bang and as long as there is a big pool of money to spread around, the vulnerable and the ignorant think, “Wow, this is really cool. I am getting FREE health care, FREE education, they are paying off my student debt, they are going to give me help in finding a place to live. Why didn’t we go down this road long ago?”
Well, the problem is, when the pool of money dries up and blows away as it always does and reality sets in, the police state apparatus is established and running well, and then anyone who is too stupid to complain suddenly finds him-or-herself sent off to a re-education camp from whence they might not return. If they do, they won’t utter a peep ever again.
You see, unless the new rulers of the state immediately begin enforcing the borders and preventing the wealthy from leaving, the people with money are going to abandon ship quickly and set up shop elsewhere, never to return. Everyone else will be unlucky or unable to get out and will remain behind as things begin to go from the black down to the red.
That is when the wonderful variety we see on the shelves of grocery stores will begin to disappear. Instead of 200-300 types of cereal, suddenly, there will be only 3-4. Same with the sodas, the beer, the liquor, the canned goods, the fresh meats, poultry, suddenly everything will be rationed and people will queue up in one line after another and day after day and still may not be able to get the things they so desperately sought.
Socialism is the siren’s call that draws ships onto the rocks and sailors to their deaths. It looks great, sounds wonderful, is as orgasmic as a threesome or foursome but is merely a shadow of what was promised if that at all.
Next time you see Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren, and some of the other nuts, ask them about “Free education.” Will the school administrators and the professors work for minimum wage so the money that would have gone to them can go to abolishing your debts? Hell, no, administrators and professors are not going to work for $22 an hour as Michael Bloomberg is pushing much less the $15 an hour that Commie Bernie is promoting. Not going to happen.
Let me leave you with this: NOTHING in this life is FREE (other than the aforementioned STDs). Someone promises you FREE health care, FREE education, FREE housing, FREE this, FREE that, it will be worth nothing. NOTHING. I am telling you, do not be stupid, young people, invest some time in studying up on the candidates and go with the guy who has driven wages up, created jobs, and is giving something to look forward to in the near future.
Friends, thanks for joining me today, we will pick back up tomorrow and see what is happening in New Hampshire although we might not know the results for a week- like Iowa- God forbid. Thanks.

I have been in professional food service for a long, long time, moving into management back in 1973. At the time, I was the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue. I was in my late thirties at the time. I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years. Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics.
