Welcome to the United States of Victimhood! –

What an essay on victimhood, our national obsession. Victims are today’s privileged class. And once a group claims victim status, it never loses it. The Democrats have cobbled together a coalition of victims. What used to be the party of hard-working blue-collar workers is now the Island of Misfit Toys, made famous in the claymation version of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.

‘Elitism’ is Not a Dirty Word

This is priceless political commentary by Dr. Michael J. Hurd. He correctly distinguishes the earned from the unearned. Did you earn your wealth by pleasing customers or clientele who voluntarily buy your products or services ? Or did you acquire your wealth from the backs of the American taxpayer?

Bottom line–Americans are woefully ignorant of the issues addressed in Dr. Hurd’s commentary. Worse, they have zero interest in learning about such things.
