Liberal Logic Update
It happened in California and it’s now happening in New York.
Liberals who’ve never even considered owning a gun now find themselves confused and nearly begging for the chance to defend themselves. They’ve been told time and time again by the liberal press that purchasing a firearm is as easy as buying a pack of gum. Only to find out what is really involved with liberal blue state gun laws. Laws which keep firearms out of the hands of law abiding citizens while criminal elements obtain illegal weapons for illegal purposes with ease.
BOOM – that is the hand of reality smacking these wanting and confused liberals in the forehead.
Liberal blue state politicians have let droves of prisoners free due to the risk of COVID-19 spreading amongst the prison population.
What has this caused? A massive crime wave. Yes, the result of living in a safe space liberal bubble with an altered sense of a ‘safe’ reality.
You see, in the liberal mindset, an incarcerated criminal has more rights than you. An incarcerated criminal has the same moral standard as you. Well, welcome to reality liberals.
So, unfortunately here’s yet another sobering example of liberal state “logic”…
A New York Post report claims women in New York are seeking guns in anticipation of what they fear is a coming coronavirus crime wave.
According to the Post, 35-year-old Nicole Rosario is a stay-at-home Staten Island mom who wants a gun.
Rosario said, “It’s my constitutional right. But that doesn’t seem to matter. I live in New York which means it’s impossible. That’s crazy and unfair.”
Rosario’s 32-year-old sister, Christine, feels the same. She is actually “going to ask her boyfriend to move in with her because he already has a gun.”
Cassie Kramer, a 46-year-old in the fashion industry, commented: “I’ve been living in the East Village and other occasionally tough neighborhoods for a long time. But for the first time, I’m going outside and I get a bad tingling feeling. The streets are empty and it doesn’t feel right. I know there aren’t a lot of cops out and it’s just a reality that people could get very desperate.”
New York is one of a handful of states where gun stores are closed; classified as non-essential via Governor Cuomo’s (D) shutdown order. And if a New Yorker thinks they can at least begin the process of taking ownership of a gun by applying for a license to have a weapon in the city, that option is gone too, as “the NYPD has closed its licensing office.”
Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa commented on the situation, intimating the wealthiest members of the city will be able to protect themselves with or without gun stores, as they can afford to “buy themselves protection.” Average Americans and the poor will have to fend for themselves.
Gun stores, which are open for business in the vast majority of states, reported record business in March and April.
Welcome to the REAL WORLD liberals.
Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, was featured Monday in a “new investigative series” that trolls presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden by mixing some of his memorable quotes into a mock Biden investigation.
In the 30-second opening montage, the video introduces several of the former vice president’s references and mistakes, including his notorious reference to “cornpop” and his accidental reference to Winston Churchill as the oldest president in American history.
But the video then segues to Murtaugh, who says it will be the “first episode” in a series called “Truth Over Facts” — a reference to a Biden campaign rally in Iowa last year, during which he said Democrats needed to stand against President Trump’s “facts” by using the “truth.”
Over ominous theme music fit for a documentary crime thriller, Murtaugh explains that the first episode of the series will examine “the case of Sleepy Joe and, you know, ‘The Thing.’ Our investigation begins at a recent campaign stop in Texas.”
Murtaugh proceeds to show a clip of Biden at a campaign event — during which the former vice president forgets lines from the Declaration of Independence and substitutes the words “the thing” instead — before the investigation pivots to a search for a second Declaration of Independence.
The stock market’s remarkable rally from its March 23 low may be foremost on many investors’ minds, but for income-seekers, these are difficult times because interest rates are so low.
Dave King, the head of growth and income strategies at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, pointed to financial stocks as an area investors should consider, because stock prices are still down significantly this year and banks are in much better shape than they were in the last time the U.S. economy entered a recession.
King co-manages several funds, including the $2.2 billion Columbia Dividend Opportunity Fund. The fund’s objective is to provide a high level of income with a portfolio of stocks, while also seeking capital growth.
The fund’s institutional shares have a dividend yield of 3.71% and are rated four stars (out of five) by financial research firm Morningstar.
King said the fund seeks to provide a dividend yield “in the top quartile” of the Lipper Equity Income peer group.
During an interview, King described the fund’s portfolio: “We hold pretty staid stocks that would be appropriate for your oldest living relative.”
He pointed to banks as a group where he and his colleagues have been making adjustments to improve the quality of the portfolio. Bank stocks as a group “have come down so much, and there are many where the dividend is 100% certain, other than by Federal Reserve action.”
Using sex dolls to fill empty sports seats…why not?
Or would it be hard to watch??? (Wow, that was a horrible joke)
One of South Korea’s top football clubs apologized for causing “deep concern” Monday after being accused of using sex dolls to fill empty seats at a weekend game.
FC Seoul insisted the mannequins — used in the absence of fans, who are banned because of the coronavirus — had “no connection to sex toys”.
But some of the artificial spectators, deployed for Sunday’s game against Gwangju FC, wore T-shirts with the logo of SoloS, a sex toy seller.
Other mannequins, which wore facemasks and were separated according to social distancing guidelines, held placards advertising the company and some of its models.
Most of them were female, but some were male.
