CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN NEWS
— IS THIS THE LAST MAJORITY WHITE ELECTION? (DIERSEN: Since the 1960s, with Affirmative Action, with Diversity, and with Inclusion, Whites have given minorities a tremendous amount of preference. As minorities become the majority, how will minorities treat Whites?)
http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2016/11/07/is-this-the-last-majority-white-election/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to a WalletHub survey on the impact of minorities in America, 2016 is the last chance Republicans stand to win the White House… until 2060: “The study used two models based on population projections and matched to the overwhelming 65 percent minority turnout for President Obama in 2012 and the underwhelming 50 percent response for George W. Bush in 2004. The bottom line: In no presidential election from 2020-60 do the Republicans win. The closest the Republicans come is 2020 when the Democratic vote under the 2004 model reaches 50.48 percent, WalletHub said. The widest gap is projected for 2060, when the minority population will be its biggest, delivering the Democrats 58.8 percent of the vote.” The analysis pretty much states the obvious: that the growth of liberal-leaning minorities is outpacing the growth of both minority and white Republicans. It’s unclear, however, whether WalletHub’s survey accounted for voter fraud, or even acknowledges that it’s a real problem.)
— EUROPE’S DISMAL FUTURE – Kent Kellar
http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2016/11/07/europes-dismal-future/
— THOSE WHO CAN’T PRODUCE REGULATE THOSE WHO CAN – Seton Motley  (DIERSEN: I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years.  Motley would say that I became a federal employee and that I stayed a federal employee because I cannot produce. He would say that while I was a federal employee, I was a professional scold, a busybody, a bureaucrat, clueless, feckless, a know-nothing, and an ideological-tyrant. In my defense, in 1971 when I was 22 years old, if Oldsmobile had not withdrawn its job offer that I had accepted, I would have become an Oldsmobile employee and not a federal employee.  Once you become a federal employee, it is all but impossible to get a job in the private sector because private sector employers hate federal employees more than Motley does.  Further, in my defense, I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, I earned four other professional certifications, I became a licensed CPA, and I earned master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance.)
http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2016/11/07/those-who-can-do-those-who-cant-regulate-those-who-can/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And that’s where government comes in. Populated in far, far too many instances by people steeped not in the pursuit of excellence – but in its persecution. If these people were actually good at productive work – they would be doing productive work. But they’re not. So they’re professional scolds and busybodies – government bureaucrats lording over those doing productive work. Those who can – do. Those who can’t – regulate those who can. . . .Yet a bunch of anti-free-market, clueless, feckless government bureaucrats are pretending it is. So Schneiderman can continue his years-long effort to make Exxon’s life miserable. Here’s a thought: How about we rein in the know-nothing, ideological-tyrant bureaucrats? And let those skilled in the art of productive work – get back to engaging in productive work. Unhindered and un-harassed by the know-nothing, ideological-tyrant bureaucrats. Our economy, our nation – and the world – would be so much the better for it.)
