The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

Let us heed the advice of the estimable Winston Wolf...Mr. Mujica spouts the progressive cant while giving free markets a pat on the head while kicking them down the street. But he does make some excellent points, including illuminating the unbelievable stupidity and ignorance of Amazon's leftist enemies. The leaders of the anti-job coalition in NY may have understood the difference between tax credits and actual money, but they were confident that their rabid supporters had not a clue, and didn't care.

The Bible has something important to say to these mainstream progressives and Leftists who humor their hard-left cousins, assuming that they will be able to control their "excesses" and make sure that only the most egregious crimes against progressivism are punished.
Hosea 8:7...."They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind."

Open Letter From New York State Budget Director Robert Mujica Regarding Amazon

"Incredibly, I have heard city and state elected officials who were opponents of the project claim that Amazon was getting $3 billion in government subsidies that could have been better spent on housing or transportation. This is either a blatant untruth or fundamental ignorance of basic math by a group of elected officials. The city and state 'gave' Amazon nothing. Amazon was to build their headquarters with union jobs and pay the city and state $27 billion in revenues. The city, through existing as-of-right tax credits, and the state through Excelsior Tax credits - a program approved by the same legislators railing against it - would provide up to $3 billion in tax relief, IF Amazon created the 25,000-40,000 jobs and thus generated $27 billion in revenue. You don't need to be the State's Budget Director to know that a nine to one return on your investment is a winner.
So New York and NYC have lost billions in economic activity and tax revenue, and they can thank the spoiled children of the untethered Left for that loss. Alexandria Donkey-Chompers is the obvious result of the Pelosi-led mainstream Left humoring these idiots, with their retarded economic views and their even worse understanding of natural rights and true freedom.

So Donkey-Chompers and her buddies got what they wanted: a very public win against a big corporation and the power brokers in New York. I hope they enjoy their victory, because the long knives are being whetted in the corridors of power in Albany and city hall. The 2020 Democrat primary in NY's 14th District will be glorious.

Feminism is simply a subset of progressivism, and their recent behavior reminds of nothing more than the way the Soviets would "unperson" formerly important figures who made some innocuous mistake. It's delightful to watch, and the fact that some significant icons are being knocked down makes it even better.
Feminists Screaming about 'Transgenderism,' Their Own Demon Child
Feminists are now merely being hoisted with their own petards. They themselves laid the foundation for the transgender agenda they bemoan.
I wonder what Martina Navratilova thinks? She came from an Eastern Bloc country and should have memories of exactly this behavior. I guess her personal "Prague Spring" is over, and the feminist tanks are rolling...

Mike Rowe: Excellent, as usual.
