I would think many of our farmers across America have now been informed about how stupid they are, according to Democratic candidate for President Michael Bloomberg. But, I believe what he actually said needs clarification and thus, applied to various other careers.

Bloomberg claimed publically “…  in 2016 at Oxford, in what he apparently offered up as an ad hoc history of labor, agriculture, and industry, leading up to his own sophisticated era,” his deeply-felt elitist views, according to a Thursday report By Victor Davis Hanson at

“I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” Bloomberg said. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.”

He then degraded lathe operators in factories, then pointed out the difference between the agrarian and industrial economies and today’s information economy.

“It’s built around replacing people with technology, and the skill sets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze, and that is a whole degree level different. You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter …”

Amazing, but this is an insight into the soul of these elitist socialists who want total control over all us “deplorables,” which now includes farmers and factory workers. And it’s not just Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders – it’s all the Democratic presidential hopefuls – their abject disgust of everyday people that make up this nation.

All those who don’t believe in their ideology are crass morons and scum – we don’t have a lot of gray matter.

Let’s look at other careers – through Bloomberg’s style of interpretation – and my opinions.

If you go to a psychiatric hospital and find someone with no self esteem who is a manic depressive with bi-polar disorder – you can teach them to become an actor or actress, where they can live out their marred lives vicariously through pretending to be different people and never face their own demons.

Then if they’re successful, they can become political savants with policies born from late-night sabbaticals with other drunk or drugged comrades in arts.

If you can find a Black American who played a part in the country’s civil rights era, who claims he’s for diversity, equality and honesty in America, and also becomes a Congressman and the U.S. House of Representatives Majority Whip – twice – and then inject him with the dreaded Trump Derangement Syndrome disease, you can create Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC).

He will then claim America’s Black teenage employment is “not at an all time high,” and that the “Black poverty rate is not true, either,” and … “I’m saying that African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been – unless you count slavery. We were fully employed during slavery …”

The so-called honorable man has proven he can misrepresent the truth in every sentence and not break a sweat. 

Bloomberg might say, “It’s easy to teach anyone to become a ‘Democrat Majority Whip,’ because they don’t have to have a lot of gray matter.”

It’s easy to teach a journalism student to become a Socialist Democrat propagandist by simply sending them to any public university in America, where other aspiring journalists first succumbed to, then became, ideologues teaching demagoguery and how horrible our nation is.

They soon learn America is  “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic.”

Oh, wait a minute, that was another politician Bloomberg adores, who with today’s “journalism students” don’t have to have a lot of gray matter.

If you take a man that has worked his way up the political ladder to become President Barack Hussein Obama’s senior adviser for strategy and communications, but he totally refuses to accept Trump won the presidency, he goes “mental.” 

His name is Dan Pfeiffer, and it’s easy to teach him how to plan subterfuge to force government to undergo a variety of “structural changes,” which will cancel the will of the American voters.

His first plan? Eliminate the Electoral College. 

He claims, “… we are currently on the path where ... a shrinking, mostly white conservative minority is going to govern, for decades, a growing, progressive, diverse majority.”

Say what? He’s trying to quiet the 30 states Trump won in the Electoral College. That’s out of 50, Pfeiffer (304 to 227). Read it and weep.

Pfeiffer concluded, “Trump’s presidency showed that ‘norms and traditions are not enough.’”


I thought those “norms and traditions” were straight out of our Constitution.

His second plan? Pfeiffer wants a requirement written into the Constitution “requiring presidents to make their tax returns public.”

That’s getting soooo old.

One more plan? “Doing away with the Justice Department legal guidance that sitting presidents cannot be indicted.”

Undoing our Constitution and rewriting established jurisprudence is the basis of the left-wing socialists’ agenda, especially when they absolutely will not accept the 2016 election results.

Sounds exactly like a barbarian Third World country – say Afghanistan.

They just had an election, and incumbent President Ashraf Ghani won.

But, incumbent chief executive Abdullah Abdullah, who ran against Ghani, refuses to accept the results. Imagine that Pfeiffer? 

Abdullah has issued a decree barring all election commission workers from leaving the country, and he also announced Tuesday he would be forming his own “inclusive government,” despite the election results.

Sounds like a recipe for blood and death in the streets over there.

A spokesman for the Ghani campaign said, “Afghanistan is part of the international community, and as such, we operate by global standards and rules. No one has the right to alter those norms in this country.”

He hasn’t met the Socialist Democrats in America, has he? Maybe our radical leftists need to nominate Abdullah to run against Trump, because they don’t believe in “norms and traditions” either.

Remember the words by author and journalist Daniel Greenfield, who addressed how civil war happens:

“(Elections) decide who runs the country. When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.”

FYI: All you farmers, lathe operators and conservatives with less gray matter – stay “locked and loaded.”
