The political left is all over the map, literally. . from NC to Wisconsin and back again. The gubernatorial recount in Durham has driven Rev. Barber and other leftists to condemn McCrory for “stealing” the election. Is it wrong to want to make sure every vote counts? Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood filed a case against NC and other states for their restrictive abortion laws. When you can’t win at the ballot box. . . go to the courts, the last bastion for progressives.
We revisited November 8th election night. We discussed how Trump and Dan Forest walked away with large margins, while McCrory and Buck Newton were led by their Democrat opponents. Early voting favored democrats, then republicans led the rest of the evening. . until the magical totals from Durham, literally at the 11th hour. There are still a lot of questions surrounding the votes in Durham County and the gubernatorial race in general.
We played a recorded message left on an electorate’s answering machine. The women who left the message says Trump is unfit to be president doesn’t know the constitution and is unethical. She rationalizes that Hillary should be elected because she won the popular vote. Several electorates have received thousands of phone calls, letters, and death threats. This threat to electors is simply baffling and should NOT be tolerated! Why aren’t ANY democrats calling on this harassment to end? Well. . we know why. . . because they agree with it!
We discussed the implications of minimum wage laws by going through an article on the technological updates being made by restaurants like McDonald’s. Machines are replacing people. Machines don’t require a minimum wage, sick days, healthcare etc. Progressive policies increase unemployment and hurt the very people they are trying to help, low-skilled workers.
We returned to the story on Planned Parenthood. Several doctors in liberal enclaves around the state have joined with Planned Parenthood to challenge the 20-week gestation ban on abortions. They claim the law banning abortions after 20 weeks harms women. C’mon. . if Planned Parenthood wants to be known for something other than abortion, then maybe they should make headlines with something other than abortion.
We ended the show talking about regulations, which are unseen taxes in the market. We also went through and article on phony science from 2016 and how it relates to politics. I played a video montage of celebrities and politicians saying Trump will never be president. They were all wrong!
