I don’t enjoy calling liberals stupid, but it’s just about the nicest thing I can come up with that doesn’t require that I lie about them.

I mean, it’s perfectly reasonable that youngsters are stoopnagels. After all, they’ve been attending indoctrination centers ever since they were five or six years old, and relying on the likes of Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Jimmy Kimmel and “Saturday Night Live” for their news and opinions.

But there’s no excuse for such blatant ignorance when it comes to people as old as Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera. You would think that simply through the process of osmosis, that by associating with some intelligent people at Fox News over the years, these two oafs would have sharpened up. Instead, Rivera recently described the Palestinian settlement on the West Bank as “the world’s largest concentration camp.”

Oh, really? Try telling that to the folks who spent time at Auschwitz, Dachau, Treblinka and Buchenwald, you egotistical twit!

⦿ If the lunacy was limited to TV pundits, it would be bad enough. But the folks who make our laws are no better. Just when you think that nobody could say anything stupider than the last thing that Nancy Pulosi, Sheila Jackson Lee or Chuck clown-Schumer, uttered, my congressman, Brad Sherman, pops up on Tucker Carlson’s show, and in response to Tucker’s asking him why census takers shouldn’t be allowed to ask people whether or not they happen to be American citizens, replies: “Why not ask them if they own any guns?”

Tucker was too busy laughing at the ignoramus to reply, so I’ll take a shot at it. “The reason, Brad, is because it’s relevant when counting noses for the purposes of apportioning congressional districts to the 50 states to know whether the noses have a right to be here and vote in our elections. On the other hand, whether or not law-abiding people have guns is no more relevant to a census than whether they prefer jockey or boxer briefs.”

⦿ Something that should be relevant to Rep. Sherman and his 434 colleagues in the House is the fact that over the past 30 years, college tuition has ballooned by over 210%. As a result, the average college student will graduate indebted to the tune of $34,000.

Additional bad news: 40% of college grads will wind up working at a job that doesn’t require a college degree. That shouldn’t be too surprising when you realize that during the school year of 2015-2016, the feds loaned an astronomical $3.5 billion to kids majoring in visual and performing arts. If you’re looking for a silver lining, you’ll have to look elsewhere. The youngsters are far less likely to own cars or homes, and far less likely to get married and raise families, than their parents.

As Tucker Carlson said, it all helps to explain why commie-Bernie Sanders, who campaigned for tax-funded college tuition, got so much traction with the kids, and why polls confirm that millennials prefer socialism to capitalism. That shouldn’t be taken as a compliment to their education; all they actually know about the two economic systems is that one of them requires that you pay for what you want and the other one forces other people to pay for what you want.

The big mystery is why parents, who continue to pick up the lion’s share of college expenses, continue to encourage their offspring, most of whom have the same taste for education that I have for broccoli, to pursue a college degree. Perhaps if they fully grasped that the average college student, and average is what most of them happen to be, spend only three hours a day on education-related activities, they’d be a little more concerned.

The other nine hours a day the kids spend eating, shopping and hanging around, which is apparently an all-encompassing euphemism for boozing, smoking pot, taking selfies and gazing at their electronic devices with the same mindless dedication that sheep in a meadow devote to their grazing.

⦿ With the midterm elections creeping ever closer, with the possibility that Nancy Pulosi will resume her role as Speaker of the House and the very real possibility that mad-Maxine Waters will live to see President Trump impeached, it’s time for every Republican to make the case for the GOP. I realize that’s not always easy, but the alternative is terrifying. It’s a numbers game. If there’s one more Democrat than Republican in the House, it means that liberals get to chair committees, meaning that in league with their treasonous allies in the FBI and the Justice Department, they get to bury all the bodies and conceal all the documents that people like Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes, have been trying to bring to light.

To do that, you need to remind your friends, neighbors and relatives, not to fall for the usual left-wing tripe. You know, for instance, that the Democrats and their chums in the media will continue to insist that the tax reform bill only benefited millionaires and billionaires, ignoring the inconvenient truth that most of those poohbahs are Hollywood and Silicon Valley elitists.

The fact is that tax cuts will always benefit those who pay most of the taxes. But keep in mind that in the U.S., the richest one percent pay 39% of all income taxes.

The top 10% pay 70.9%, whereas those making less than $40,000-a-year don’t pay a damn thing. It’s also a fact that a great many wage-earners aren’t as aware as they should be that, thanks to the tax bill, they are making more money these days. The reason they may be unaware of that fact is because some of them have their salaries deposited directly into their checking accounts.

If you know any of these people, you need to remind them that they’re better off now than they were under liar-nObama. Heck, Nancy Pulosi even went so far as to dub thousand-dollar bonuses as “crumbs,” easy enough to do if your own fortune is in excess of $30 million, but a pretty sizable crumb if it represents one or two percent of your annual salary.

⦿ I don’t usually engage in the prediction game, but judging by how much time and attention the Democrats are devoting to illegal aliens, I’m going to climb out on a limb and predict that their 2020 presidential candidate will be Hispanic. For one thing, there is nobody who can claim it’s his or her turn, the way that liar-Hillary Clinton could. For another, the beauty of having a member of a minority at the top of the ticket is that, like liar-nObama, he or she would have a Teflon shield with which to deflect the normal attacks that go with a run for the presidency.

You may recall that in 2008, rino-John McCain wouldn’t even allow a TV ad to be run that connected his opponent to Rev. Jeremiah (“G—damn America!”) Wright.

⦿ It was Henry Clay who said: “All religions that are united with government are more or less inimical to liberty. All those that are separated from government are compatible with liberty.”

I don’t know if he had Islam specifically in mind, but he should have, as all the nations in which Muslims are the majority are theocratic cesspools in which those who don’t kneel to Mecca are condemned as infidels and are subject to torture and death if they don’t convert.

The only places that rival them when it comes to sheer evil are nations like the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and North Korea, where the dictators declare themselves God and where religion was or is nothing more than a rumor.

⦿ Just for the record, has anyone ever seen Robert Mueller smile? Did he perhaps smile once when he was a baby and decide it just didn’t feel right?
