December 24, 2019

As you can tell by our Christmas tree, 2019 was a very good year for the Richard household. The work has been incredibly hard, and there have all sorts of twists and turns along the way. But, I’m guessing like most Americans, the economy must be damned good to have that many presents under the tree for just a family of three.

How do I know? Well, all I can say is Wow:

Holiday shopping set records over the weekend, with Super Saturday sales reaching $34.4 billion, the biggest single day in U.S. retail history, according to Customer Growth Partners.

“Paced by the ‘Big Four’ mega-retailers — Walmart, Amazon, Costco and Target — Super Saturday was boosted by the best traffic our team has seen in years,” said Craig Johnson, president of the retail research firm.

Job growth and fatter wallets, along with stronger household finances, have put consumers in a buying mood this season, Johnson said. And more of them are shopping online. As retailers offer improved web platforms, online spending so far this season has accounted for 58% of sales growth from a year earlier, he said.

…but, but, impeachment!!

When this is all you have, there’s really not much more you can say. I wish I could say I feel sorry for her and those like her, but their agony is my joy.

Rest in peace, soldier. President Trump, get us the hell out of there! Enough of our families suffering because of ill-advised foreign adventures. I know this must kill you inside – so let’s get the job done.

Any videos with ducks in it makes me laugh. But this one is especially funny.

…but miniature pigs are pretty entertaining as well.

This is the result of playing the race card when it suits you and caring only about identity politics at election time. Democrats never gave a $hit about African-Americans; they were always a handy voting bloc to have around every November as needed. Articles like this oughta scare the bejeezus out of the DNC. As the President famously said back in 2016 – what have you got to lose?

…maybe that explains this. I can’t believe the Democrats could be this stupid, but I gave up a long time ago associating the liberal political opposition with anything remotely equating to intelligence.

Because Democrats are all about the blue-collar working man, right? Talk about your identity politics pandering! I don’t know who are the geniuses advising the Biden campaign, but between this stunt and this, I’d have to say that they’re well aware “ol’ Blue Collar” Joe has already lost his primary voting contingency (and, oh, BTW, the supposed primary argument for his running in the first place) to Trump. By St. Patrick’s Day Biden’s campaign will be history.

If you want commentary on true polling data – not the “push polling” done by mainstream media outlets – be sure to bookmark Richard Barris. I’ll admit that I thought Hillary would have entered the race by now, but I think Barris is right in saying that Bernie Sanders has the enthusiasm right now. If he chooses (as I believe he will) Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez as his running mate, the Democrats will be frothing all over themselves into an Electoral College wipeout.

…for me, I think Sanders winning the nomination would be a good thing. You see, I want a presidential race painted in broad strokes, with clear lines of difference between the parties and the candidates. American voters ought to have the right to choose between capitalism and Democratic socialism, and I think Sanders best fits that bill. Not to mention the fact that the debates ought to be fun!

What would Christmas be without a great Elvis tune?
