“But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you – and why?”
Walter E. Williams 1936 – 2020 Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Why Goya Foods CEO named a progressive democrat as Employee of the Month.
“We still have to chat with AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. I love her,” Unanue said during an interview on The Michael Berry Show. “She was actually our Employee of the Month. I don’t know if you know about this, but when she boycotted us, our sales actually increased 1,000 percent. So, we gave her an honorary — we never were able to hand it to her but she got Employee of the Month for bringing attention to GOYA and our adobo. Actually our sales of adobo did very well after she said ‘Make your own Adobo.’” The CEO called the Democratic Socialist the company’s “hero” because “she helped boost sales tremendously,” noting that they still maintained their base while adding a number of new customers.
Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: How Nancy Pelosi's TDS [Trump Derangement Syndrome] hurt America.
Now, she is ready to deal. But what about all that lost time? All that suffering? Pelosi doesn't want to talk about it. That was clear at her news conference, when a reporter asked, 'Was it a mistake, though, not to accept half of a loaf months ago?'
A clearly angry Pelosi lashed out at the journalist for his temerity. 'Look, I'm going to tell you something,' she said. 'Don't characterize what we did before as a mistake, as a preface to your question, if you want an answer. That was not a mistake. It was a decision. And it has taken us to a place where we can do the right thing without other, shall we say, considerations in the legislation that we don't want.' The short version of that was: Look, we waited Trump out. He lost. Now, we'll act.
Terence P. Jeffrey, editor-in-chief of CNSNews: Schumer wants Biden to transfer wealth from auto mechanics to Harvard grads.
The median income in American households where the householder had a bachelor's degree was $100,164 in 2019. The median income in a household where the householder had a professional degree — such as a law degree — was $162,127.
But the median income in a household where the householder only had a high school degree was $48,708.
Can a college graduate — whose median household income is $51,456 more than a high school graduate's — afford to pay off $24,000 (or even $50,000) in student loans?
Or should an auto mechanic pay taxes — and interest on an increased federal debt — so Joe Biden can forgive a Harvard graduate's student loans?
