JERRY SCHEMMEL ISN'T JUST A BASEBALL GUY And he's got a new show starting this Sunday at 8am right here on KOA Newsradio about Amazing Americans. He's on at 2 to discuss it, but you can find out more by clicking here!
THIS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT YESTERDAY WITH AOC when I spoke about how the Right needs to check itself with the mockery of everything else Alexandra Ocasio Cortez. Someone released a video from her college years that was, I guess, supposed to embarrass the new Congresswoman. She is seen dancing on a rooftop being a college kid and it's really sort of charming.
And apparently some on the Right have decided this is the worst thing ever or something. Thankfully most of the Conservatives I follow on Twitter have expressed the same feelings that I have, that this is cute and not crazy or stupid for a college kid to do. She is giving conservatives boatloads of policy ammunition with which to fight, please don't be distracted by nonsense like this.
LIKE THIS SUGGESTION FOR A 70% INCOME RATE Ocasio-Cortez is going to get traction on this ask for a top income rate of 70%, and I must tell you, I'm all for it. Please tell Hollywood celebrities that they are going to have to give the government 70% of the income they earn over $10 million. PLEASE. I'd love to see the athletes who hate Trump become flag waving Republicans over this. PLEASE.
HOLY JOBS REPORT, BATMAN The December jobs report is out and WOW. Our economy added 312,000 jobs in December, decimating the predicted 170,000 or so economists forecast. Other good news, fewer people were working part time jobs because they couldn't find full time work, wages are us 3.2% year over year and the labor participation rate is up. Recession coming? What recession?
THANK GOODNESS DEMS ARE BRINGING CIVILITY BACK And in a fun video from a Move On event in DC, a newly minted Congresswoman from Michigan announced that Dems were going to "impeach the M----- F-----" and you're going to have to click this link to watch the video because it violates my companies standards of decency to put on this blog.
BOULDER HAS CREATED A WHOLE SLEW OF NEW CRIMINALS THEY HAVE GUNS And I know they have guns because Boulder passed an idiotic law requiring law abiding gun owners to get a permission slip from the government to keep their legal firearms. Now they are fighting back and refusing to comply. So what happens when you pass a law and no one cares? We'll see.
EL PASO COUNTY KIDS ARE KILLING THEMSELVES AT A STUPID HIGH RATE And we've got to get real about suicide. I feel like I've beaten this horse to death, but DAMN PEOPLE. These are kids who have their entire lives ahead of them and they are making a choice they don't get to come back from. At least El Paso county is doing a study to figure out why kids may be doing this. One big thing missing from the list of contributing factors is no God in their lives. I'm telling you, God can make a big difference when someone feels hopeless.
PEOPLE ARE LEAVING HIGH TAX STATES IN DROVES And New Jersey tops the chart this year and has been on the charts for ten years. Here are the top ten places people are fleeing:
The top outbound states for 2018 were:
- New Jersey
- New York
Five of them are five of the highest tax states in the country. And one of them is Iowa.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SMALL STATES TO GIVE THEIR POWER TO CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK Because that's what a vote for this dumb Constitutional Amendment doing away with the Electoral College would be. Knowing how tiny the chances of this ever passing, Rep. Steve Cohen is now the king of virtue signalling and posturing.
LACK OF SLEEP AND SOCIAL MEDIA IS NOT GOOD FOR GIRLS And I'm sure not good for boys too, but girls are far more likely to struggle with depression because of these things.
AN AVALANCHE LEADS TO A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE For a twenty nine year old skier in Austria. You really should read her account of what she experienced while she was dead.
THOSE EXTRA MILKBONES COULD MEAN AN EARLY GRAVE As a new study of veterinary records has shown that your dog being overweight could shorten his or her life by as much as TWO AND HALF YEARS. Get up and take that pudgy beast on a walk before you kill them with food!
AMERICANS CARE ABOUT IMMIGRATION And even as most say they have no confidence that the government will actually address it, Americans want government to do something about immigration. Just behind the Economy (really? This shows the economic ignorance of most Americans) and Health care as a top concern, immigration is way ahead of climate change and race relations. Does this demonstrate that Democrats are out of touch with what people genuinely care about?
SUCKS TO BE A MUGGER WHO CHOSE POORLY And one poor schlub in Florida may be dealing with some broken ribs after he hit a limping old man in the back of a head with a bottle only to find out too late that said old man is a former kickboxing champion. Oops.
EVER WANTED TO KNOW HOW THEY TRAIN MOVIE STARS FOR A ROLE? This is cool.
AND NOW HERE'S WHY COSTCO PIZZA IS SO DELICIOUS
