Defining "common sense"

June 17, 2019

Unlike many people, I wouldn’t poke fun at Joe Biden for promising to cure cancer if he’s elected President. Yes, it’s a ludicrous promise – there are many different forms of cancer that researchers have been trying to cure for decades, and the idea that all it would take is throwing more federal money at it is the same fruitless solution liberals have for every problem. Still, Biden’s son died of brain cancer, so I understand why this is such an important issue to him personally, even if the promise is not practical. 

I think it would be better to reserve any mockery for those who support Biden but are already trying to excuse him for not curing cancer by blaming cancer on Trump.  No, that’s not a joke; that’s the actual news story that provides the premise for jokes:

Joy Behar on “The View” recently disputed the term “far-left” to describe the crazy promises and policies coming from the Democratic Presidential candidates.  Instead, she claimed she backed Democrats because their policies are just “common sense.”  When challenged to name a “far-left” idea, Meghan McCain mentioned late term abortion, and Whoopi Goldberg responded that that doesn’t exist.

I bring that up just to give you a baseline so you understand how Joy Behar and other modern liberals define “common sense.”  She argued that it will be difficult for Biden to cure cancer because some cancers are caused by environmental factors, and Trump is fighting “climate change” legislation, which will make the environment more polluted and, apparently, cause more cancer than even Joe Biden can cure.  So if Joe Biden fails to cure cancer, it’s Trump’s fault.

In summation, the defender of liberal “common sense” in the media thinks that Donald Trump is pro-cancer.  That is some seriously uncommon common sense.

    When there are no good ideas among 20 plus Democratic candidates other than to dump Trump it makes one wonder why Democrats think we should elect them with their nutty agenda s .
