While watching a recent Democratic debate, one contestant stood out — former Vice President Joe Biden. I was surprised to see him there, as the night before he introduced himself as a candidate for the United States Senate. The day before that, he claimed he was arrested while attempting to visit Nelson Mandela.

While I watched, he was in a rant that 150 million people have been killed by firearms since 2007. What? Look out, Joe, the FBI may conspire to invoke the 25th Amendment against you.

Former Vice President Biden is completely out of touch with reality, as were most of the others on the stage. The mantra of the great giveaway is sadly laughable. My Irish mother would remind me from time to time, “Tis nothing that you get when nothing is what you do.”

Seize the moment in America where the economy is booming, and jobs are readily available. Roll up your sleeves and get to work. You’ll be better off for it.

Free college, free health care, free child care, student loan forgiveness, open borders, prison furloughs, revoking the Second Amendment, reparations, the forcible removable of firearms of lawful owners, infanticide — may God forgive us all for that one — and anything else you can think of!

If this is the best the Dems have to offer, election night is going to be very painful event for them.
