Has liberalism created Donald Trump? “Liberalism has fallen into a position in which it can make few moral arguments against the other side. That’s the real frustration liberals have with President Trump.” They call him vulgar and crass, but they’ve praised vulgar and crass with characters from George Carlin to Madonna. They celebrate progressive groundbreakers, even boundary-pushers, but now criticize Trump for being that, all the way to the White House. Isn’t he EXACTLY what liberals say they love and advocate?
What’s next for chips, invasion of our bodies? Wisconsin’s Three Square Market company is the first American business to insert chips in employees. Employees are not required to use chips, but about 50 out of 80 employees have already agreed to be “tagged.” The chips are used to unlock doors around the office, log in to computers and copy machines, and make purchases at the in-office mini-mart. Fans of the chip say it’s convenient and fast. They like to try new things and want to be part of the future. “Now, instead of remembering hundreds of passwords, we’ll be able to hold our hand over an RFID reader,” says Three Square Market’s CEO, Todd Westby.

Then they try to influence the agency to spend the money on their pet projects. Sometimes they allocate money to an agency that is no longer authorized to receive it. Do you think we are doomed to bow to the relentless spread of government through the spending on pork barrel projects? Some way we’re kidding ourselves if we think Congress members don’t have to bring back money to their states.
