The comments are quite entertaining.
Fresh off a successful campaign to to name and shame Amazon for its low wages, Bernie Sanders is setting his sights on Walmart. Today, the Vermont senator is introducing the “STOP Walmart Act,” a bill that demands the retail behemoth raise its wages or face penalties.
Across Venezuela, as the once-wealthy oil nation’s economy collapses and sky-high inflation leaves residents struggling to afford scarce food, crimes of hunger and desperation are soaring.
Sweden’s goal to reach the lowest unemployment rate in Europe is becoming more and more unrealistic. In the EU’s unemployment ranking the country has fallen from 12th place 18th place in four years.
The independent Vermont senator, who lost the Democratic nomination for president to Hillary Clinton in 2016, made the comments to supporters at a campaign event for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous on Tuesday (October 30), a week before the November 6 midterms.
Members of the Social Democrat Youth, once a talent pool that produced many prominent Social Democrat politicians, have called Islam a “universal solution,” expressed homophobic and anti-Semitic sentiments, and substituted the traditional Internationale anthem played at a party conference with an Islamic song.
Smugglers, in ever growing numbers, emerge with a ragtag group of Venezuelan migrants – men struggling under tattered suitcases, women hugging bundles in blankets and schoolchildren carrying backpacks. They step across rocks, wade into the muddy stream and cross illegally into Colombia.
Remind me never to visit Portland, Oregon. Long associated with the brand of outré hipster leftism deliciously satirized in TV’s Portlandia, Oregon’s largest city is now a zone of mass political violence. It isn’t quite Beirut-on-the-Willamette, to be sure. No suicide bombs are ripping through the farmers’ market at Shemanski Park, and the city’s radicals don’t store rockets in schools and hospitals.
Harper recently sat down with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business, where he demonstrated an example of a real mind at work – a significant contrast to Justin Trudeau.

Elections are just around the corner in Bavaria, Germany’s largest and economically strongest state. On October 14, Bavarians will go to the polls to elect a new state government. One thing that is already sure is that the Left Party, Germany’s mainstream socialist party, will not have much success. It is currently polling around 3 to 4 percent, far away from the usual 10 percent it has countrywide and below the threshold of 5 percent to have seats in the Bavarian parliament.
More than 200 academics signed onto a public letter calling on governments to eschew economic growth in order to plan for a “post-growth economy” based on wealth redistribution.
Anyone who doubts that those in charge of the operation of Providence have a sly sense of humor needs only to ponder the sweet declarations emitted by our more pampered celebrities on the subject of socialism. Consider, for example, the actor Jim Carrey, who recently told Bill Maher that “We have to say yes to socialism — to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing.”
As part of its official platform leading up to next month’s election, the party proposed giving parents an additional week of paid holiday to be used during their children’s school holidays and teacher in-service days.
Many of us grew up watching Dracula movies – Nosferatu, the “Undead.” Fearful of the sunlight that could burn him into cinders, Dracula lived in a coffin filled with his native Transylvanian soil by day, only to come out at night to live off the life-giving blood of the living. But to continue his “unnatural” existence, this human-like vampire had to kill his victims by draining them of their own blood, or in the process of turning them into “creatures of the night,” like himself. Welcome to the nature and history of socialism.
