Bernie Sanders’ war on women

Bernie Sanders wants Nike to stop doing business in Vietnam. He recently accused Nike of

 “exploiting low-wage workers”

in Vietnam.

Unfortunately, Sanders did not actually talk to any of those Vietnamese workers to get their opinion on this issue.

Fortunately, a guy named Johan Norberg did talk to Vietnamese workers who work in a Nike factory. He then wrote the following:

But when I talk to a young Vietnamese woman, Tsi-Chi, at the factory, it is not the wages she is most happy about. Sure, she makes five times more than she did, she earns more than her husband, and she can now afford to build an extension to her house. But the most important thing, she says, is that she doesn’t have to work outdoors on a farm any more… 10 to 14 hours a day in the burning sun or the intensive rain, in rice fields with water up to your ankles and insects in your face.

Bernie Sanders wants to reduce the income of Vietnamese women by 80%.

Bernie Sanders want to force Vietnamese women to work outside in the burning sun and intense rain, with water up to their ankles, and insects in their face.

Bernie Sanders wants Vietnamese women to earn less than their husbands.

Bernie Sanders wants to prevent Vietnamese women from being able to afford adequate housing.

And above all else, Bernie Sanders believes that Vietnamese women are too stupid to make their own decisions regarding employment, and he wants to make those decisions for them.

With help from 80 years of self-described “progressives,” Obama is now waging the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president in history

Anyone who has been following the self-described “progressive” politicians since FDR should not be surprised at Obama’s war against medical marijuana.

Obama’s war against medical marijuana is a direct result of the policies of the self-described “progressives” in the White House, Congress, and the U.S. Supreme Court, going all the way back to FDR’s New Deal.

Here are 178 examples of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, government waste, and other misdeeds

Note: A longer, more recent version of this list can be found at Obama supporters will go hysterical over this well sourced list of 252 examples of his lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc.

In the 2008 United States election, I wrote in Ron Paul for President. In the 2012 election, I voted for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. Those who are of a more leftist persuasion than myself might want to consider voting for the Green Party in future elections.

Chicago’s government-run health care is almost as horrible as its government-run schools

This article from CBS is a great example of the mindset of the people who run the city of Chicago.

Chicago set up a government run health care clinic inside a garbage truck garage. Only after the media reported on it did the government decide it was a bad idea.

The mindset that says it’s a good idea to run a health care clinic in such a filthy environment, is the same mindset that is in charge of running Chicago’s public schools.

Comments from someone who is an Occupier, progressive, labor leader, and communist

This guy’s tone of voice and calm demeanor make him sound like he could be a trusted teacher, friend, or relative. I think if I knew him in real life, we could be friends, and enjoy each other’s company. He certainly seems well intentioned.

Los Angeles teachers’ unions try to shut down South Central charter school that has been very successful at teaching low-income black and Hispanic students

In 2008, the Wall. St Journal wrote the following about a real world example of a charter school which has done an excellent job of teaching low-income black and Hispanic students who live in South Central Los Angeles, California. As is always the case with successful charter schools, the teachers’ unions want it to be shut down, because they are terrified of competition. The teachers’ unions want these low-income students to be trapped in the horrible public schools:

The biggest current obstacles to medical marijuana are President Obama and the progressives on the Supreme Court

I’m a libertarian, and I think that both medical and recreational marijuana should be legal. That being said, I myself have never smoked marijuana, or tobacco, or been drunk, or used any illegal drug. I do, however, think that it’s completely ridiculous to put non-violent people in jail for using mind altering substances. And I especially detest the idea of the government preventing people from using a medical treatment which has been proven in scientific studies to be beneficial for patients who are suffering from AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, and other medical conditions. I voted for Ron Paul for President in 2008, and I will be voting for Gary Johnson in 2012. The ridiculous “war on drugs” has caused the U.S. incarceration rate to skyrocket in recent decades – to the highest rate of any country in the entire world. Ending the “war on drugs” is my #1 most important political issue.

Government makes 1,500 fans miss baseball game because the bathroom mirrors are 1/4 inch too low

A recent five minute speech by U.S. Congressman Mike Kelly (R-Pennsylvania) has been getting a lot of attention. He talks about the red tape that the government uses to strangle businesses.

The entire video is worth watching, but my favorite part begins at 2:23. A government bureaucrat forces 1,500 fans to miss a baseball game because the mirrors in the men’s bathroom are one quarter inch too low.

Here are 56 reasons why Barack Obama is a lying, lawbreaking, warmongering, corrupt cronyist, who loves corporate lobbyists and Wall St., and who has no respect for the Constitution, limited government, rule of law, individual freedom, civil liberties, the taxpayers, or sick people who have prescriptions for medical marijuana
