College student protest leader who demands free tuition, student debt eradication, and $15 minimum wage embarrasses herself on national TV

In Economy, Education by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

I almost feel bad for this girl for how badly she embarrasses herself, but I don’t. Here’s why: she’s so mind-numbingly brainwashed with hatred for the evil 1% that she doesn’t even realized how idiotic she just looked on television. Neil Cavuto, to his credit, is so incredibly patient with this poor girl, trying desperately to speak in simple terms with easily understood math. Her response when faced with facts? “I don’t believe that.” Facepalm!

In 2nd Amendment, Crime by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

This story is proof positive that gun control doesn’t make people safe, but gun ownership does. Thanks to the wise lessons from his mother, a 13-year-old South Carolina boy was able to defend himself against armed burglars (whose previous felonies barred them from gun ownership). Another victory for responsible gun ownership and good parenting. Another failure for gun control.

In Economy, Election, Taxes by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

This was definitely Rand Paul’s best moment of last night’s debate. During the discussion about each of their budget and tax plans, Marco Rubio declared his plans to have $1 Trillion in new spending on the military and create a new “tax credit” for families with children. Rand Paul pointed out that the so-called “tax credit” for families gives money away to people who don’t even pay taxes and challenged Rubio’s credentials as a “conservative” for introducing new trillion-dollar programs without a plan to pay for them.
