This is getting out of control.

I often think America needs its own Pinochet.

I don’t know if we have generals with the courage and patriotism to do what Pinochet did. But 10 or 15 years like that — a regime willing to absolutely purge the leftist, atheistic rot from our institutions and then step aside — could be our best hope to end this kind of madness.

We used to have big idea rulers that got us to the moon and the greatest economic expansion in history. Now the small minded dictocrats’s biggest idea is putting perverts in the girls bathroom.

Outrageous. About 99% of government jobs are unnecessary make-work positions. Government workers contribute ZERO to the economy. They are moochers. The most crime-ridden parts of Washington, DC are populated with government employees. They are worse than the welfare rats.

I know a guy in HR who was sent a file folder of new Masters Degree grads from a major university. Every one of those kids had majored in some sort of “green sustainability” studies. Utterly unqualified to be anything EXCEPT a regulator.

Chile has economically outperformed the rest of Latin America over the past four decades. And has been infinitely more stable overall.

This largely due to the fact that Pinochet rounded-up all of their Leftists and dumped them into the sea. Just let THAT sink in for a moment.
