To preface this article, I am referring to the first wave of stimulus checks. Anything read here may or may not apply to any future stimulus payments. Do not use this article as a guide for future checks.

This guide is intended for young people, in the age range of 18–24 years old but can apply to anyone reading this. I highly recommend reading all the way through.

If you still haven’t gotten a stimulus check, but filed a tax return in 2018 or 2019, there are two possible explanations:

The first is that the check is in the mail…

Ben Shapiro, Glenn Beck, Charlie Kirk, Rush Limbaugh, the list goes on. All of these people have decried Bernie Sanders as a “crazy communist” over and over again. They also claim that the “new Democratic Party” is too left, and becoming like the Bolshevik Party of Lenin. It doesn’t take much effort to find a political comic that shows Democratic congresspeople dawning hammer and sickles in an attempt to condemn them.

Now I’m not implying Bernie Sanders is a communist. He very much is not one. Universal healthcare is an almost global idea, minus a few countries. Are we supposed…

Does nobody remember 2016? Seriously, do all the political pundits, voters, woke tweeters and so on not recall the last election?

Who was the democratic nominee in 2016? What gender was this person? What political lane did they occupy?

If you haven’t made the connection by now, democrats are 100% capable of choosing a woman as the nominee. That doesn’t mean they have to every single time a woman runs. But the petty identity politics crowd wants to wag their finger at democratic voters for not voting for a woman. Despite them doing so in the past. Despite them nominating…

Let’s pretend we live in fairy tale land and Warren makes it to a contested convention, and magically wins EVERY SINGLE SUPERDELEGATE. Every single one. That would be insane for a person who is in third place, third place by default mind you. She was in fifth before two of her competitors dropped out. So let’s say Warren’s arrogance, or as she likes to call it “persistence,” takes her to Milwaukee. At this current rate, just ballparking numbers, I’d say while Sanders and Biden are both vying for that 1,991 threshold, Warren is sitting somewhere around 500 delegates. That still…

Kaitlin Bennett, aka “the gun girl” was protested on college campuses a week ago. Originally, I didn’t really care about what she was doing there. Its pretty typical of her to go to colleges and try and talk to people for content in a video. Normally, she tries to debate peoples’ ideas. “What do you think about communism” are the type of questions she’ll drop on students just trying to get to class.

Its up to them to entertain her, but in an NBC news statement she gave an example of the type of questions she was planning on asking…

Bernie Sanders made the claim in the 1980s that the reason the Cuban people didn’t help overthrow Castro’s government was that he educated the people, and gave them other socialized concessions, like healthcare. Rubio fired back, stating that the real reason they didn’t help overthrow Fidel’s government was that he “jailed, murdered or exiled dissidents.”
