Bernie’s $16.3 Trillion Green Plan

2019 August 23

Not to be outdone by Robert Francis O’Rourke and Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders just just unveiled his $16.3 trillion green plan. Of course, Bernie says his plan will pay for itself. Everyone knows federal government programs always pay for themselves and often make a tidy profit. And, they never exceed budget and always are completed on schedule with no hiccups.

Skateboard Beto was first with a $5 trillion green plan, Kirsten the Barmaid upped the ante to $10 trillion. Crazy Bernie saw her and upped it to $16.3 trillion.

Fortunately for Democratic presidential candidates, what passes for today’s journalists are too stupid to know how to use calculators. Actually you need Excel or the calculator built into your laptop because Staples calculators stop at 10 digits, So here goes:

  • Skateboard Beto’s plan would cost $15,625 for every man, woman, child or whatever in the US; $62,500 for a family of four
  • Kirsten the Barmaid’s would cost $31,250 per person/$125,000 for a family of four
  • Crazy Bernie’s would cost a whopping 50,937 per person; $203,750 for a family  of four

The media never asks how theses grandiose programs will be funded; after all, don’t most families have $203,750 just lying around? Of course they do … and they own three large houses just like Bernie.

What good will Crazy Bernie’s $16.3  trillion program do if:

  • China and India – the world’s top polluters – continue to pollute at the current rate?
  • Barbra Streisand continues to have a larger carbon footprint than Muncie, IN?
  • The British Royal Family continues to have  a bigger carbon footprint than the entire state of Indiana?

Silly me. I forgot about Elton John and the carbon offsets. Since Elton sent someone somewhere a check, the pollution caused by Harry and Meghan’s charter jet never really happened.

    Maybe wifey can come up with a scam to raise the money like she did at Burlington College, which she ran (into the ground) a few years back … it was so successful that the college declared bankruptcy and closed its doors.

    The TRILLION dollar “schemes” are sooooo attractive to two distinct classes:

    Class 1: the gullible, the poor, today’s youth, Democrats
    Class 2: the grafters

    Class 1 will be made MORE miserable by these schemes, less free, and ultimately enslaved! But they want to BELIEVE.

    Class 2 doesn’t have to “believe”, they KNOW they can steal most of the money!!

    Phrasing is everything, eh?

    Many in the increasingly openly anti-Semitic American media are describing the destruction of an Iranian arms depot in Iraq as: “Israel is BLAMED FOR destroying an Iranian arms depot”

    I would prefer: “Israel is CREDITED WITH destroying an Iranian arms depot”

    kinda like somebody being “blamed for” destroying a meth-lab, or some such. Hey, it’s a GOOD thing!!

    Newly elected Democrat Kelli Dunaway (@DunawayKelli) chose Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” as her book of choice. Her proud children held it for her during the swearing-in ceremony. https://www.stltoday.com/opinion/editorial/editorial-short-takes-on-colorful-seuss-characters-in-politics/article_aec76b7e-8f4b-5bbe-9757-b4d2d40a291a.html

    I wrote a thread on the Koch Brothers earlier this week. Maybe I should do one on George Soros.

    In case you harbored any positive feelings toward the Koch Brothers, this should kill them. From three days ago:

    64% of federal arrests were noncitizens. — https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-23/doj-64-all-federal-arrests-2018-were-non-citizens — That should kill the canard that illegals are essential to the economy, not. Well except if you are a jailer.

    Up on FB I invitees everyone, ESPECIALLY those on the Left to read this.

    Though I seriously doubt Progressives will read it…it would make their heads explode.

    but it needs to be read and passed along.

    14,

    So true.

    I have another observation. The Dims are all about ‘people of color’, so why is it that out of the 18 still trying to win a nomination only ONE is a justified PoC? Which is an irony in and of itself. Harris is Jamaican and so her family not only own slaves but never faced the injustices of the American slavery system!

    Cry me a river about the race issue.
