NATIONAL HARBOR "Pawn Stars host Rick Harrison injected some humor into his CPAC speech on Thursday afternoon.
Harrison, the star of the History channel show and an outspoken conservative, delivered his speech on the stupidity of socialism at one of the largest annual gatherings of conservatives just outside Washington, D.C.
The majority [of] people in this room know that socialism is just stupid, he said.
Its literally like heroin. The first shot is great. For a little bit its wonderful, but then the rest of your life is a living hell. And thats literally what the socialists are doing.
He continued later in the speech: Once you give someone something its hard to take it away then you get Venezuela.
The rise of socialism has been a hot topic at CPAC, with two prominent GOP House Oversight Committee members warning of radicals in the Democratic Party and saying they believe congressional Democrats are laying the foundation for Trump impeachment efforts.

I wonder if he has had a plenty of good influence on his son and Chumlee.
I’d assume so. They both have quite a collection of exotic vehicles. Don’t think they’d want to give them all up for a Prius.
As for Oak Island Mystery, which I think youre referring to, I got bored with that show in about 5 minutes. Nothing ever happens.
No wonder the left is so addicted to the idea of socialism/communism/tyranny/control over all of us.
It’s how they get their jollies.
Its not going to be funny to watch this country slide into the miserable Hell of authoritarian Socialism, which is exactly what the Dems want. They want to be in control with a population dependent on them for survival.
‘Forged in Fire’ is a good show.
Socialists refuse to accept one single premise—that power corrupts. If you give government power, it abuses it, which is why conservatives believe in limited government. But to be a liberal today, you have to be against everything conservatives believe in.
Oak Island’s New season:
I know, let’s dig over there!.....................
Beau & I watch re-runs of ‘Pawn Stars’ during lunch a few times a week. I think it’s a lot of fun, and I love when they blow stuff up, LOL!
Poor, Chum. He’s such a sweet kid. Dumb, but sweet. ;)
Glad to see Rick Harrison is putting his mouth where his money is!
2020 is going to come down to Good v. Evil. President Trump, at the VERY least, has outed the Socialist Democrat Party. For the first time in my lifetime, people are starting to see it with their own eyes. MAGA! :)

There is nothing great about socialism.
You're not fascinated by some hammerheads, heating and beating metal?
“There is nothing great about socialism”.
That’s what the man said.
For me, just getting the stuff tested that they find in the spoils is interesting. Having the items studied to see what they actually are, and possibly dating them is progress to me. People have been digging there for about 200 years. Modern treasure hunting isn't perfect, or fool proof. It's a process of methodically excavating old and new sites, and that takes time since they are only able to dig during certain times of the year, and they are hampered by government laws regarding archaeological sites. They have found things, specifically remnants of past human existence in those areas...such things as human bone from two individuals who weren't native to the area, found at great depth.
Chumlee is an idiot. I know he’s acting but I’d say he’s about the same on and off screen.
I agree. I like Forged in Fire.
The first shot is not great.
There is no great “first shot” of socialism. Ever.
