One of America’s Motown icons, the Queen of Soul, has passed away.
Aretha Franklin transcended race, gender and background. She recorded her first album at 14-years-old and yet somehow, unlike nearly every other child celebrity, manage to remain “normal.”
She would go on to record almost 100 hits that landed on Billboard's R&B charts; twenty of them were number one hits. As I heard someone say yesterday, the only controversy surrounding Aretha Franklin was which one of those hits was the best...
It always shocks me to witness the advanced and impressive level of calisthenics liberals are able to perform. They are Olympic-level mental gymnasts, and their skills are becoming even more crucial as they attempt to credit our booming economy to... former President Barack Obama.
Look at all the ways our economy is soaring:
Record highs in the stock market, record low unemployment and jobless claims, 1.5 million fewer people on food stamps, $6 trillion added in wealth, 4.1 per cent GDP growth, U.S. Manufacturing Index at 33 year high...
Gosh, it sounds like whatever crap Obama made of the economy Trump inherited, Trump certainly turned things around.
And an IBD/TIPP poll released last week shows that Americans give this president an A rating on the economy. So either Americans are stupid or liberal are lying. I think we know which one is true...
Speaking of liberals and their aversion to facts and math, we here in California are doomed.
We've got a Republican trailing far behind a very far-left Democrat, Gavin Newsom, in the gubernatorial race.
Nearly everything he's talking about doing will bankrupt the state: universal preschool and child care, universal health care, higher wages across the board, higher spending on infrastructure, and 3.5 million housing units to address California's housing shortage.
The universal preschool and child care alone will cost $8 billion. I guess I wouldn't take such issue with this if I didn't know how many kids in this state were brought here illegally and are soaking up our social program resources. Take the kids back to your home country and have Grandma Rosa watch your offspring. Because the United States of America is not a daycare center.
Or maybe it is. It sounds like Gavin Newsom is trying to make it that way.
