Day by Day

This isn't just cognitive dissonance, this is brain damage.

 Woman who shut down her business because of crushing taxes still supports Bernie Sanders.  Here's part one, a normal complaint:

“People have been contacting me thinking that they can get mittens, and actually, they can’t,” Vermont school teacher Jen Ellis said about the mittens that Sanders wore on Inauguration Day, adding that high taxes drove her out of business.

“I don’t have any more, and I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it,” she continued. “Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree, and it wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as a business, even as a side hustle.”

And here is where my head hit the desk.

Still, despite Sanders’s strident support for raising taxes, including on the middle class, to pay for "Medicare for all," Ellis says she supports the senator.

“I’m also super pro-Bernie and as a public school teacher, I can see every day how families are struggling,” she said. “People are just trying to make ends meet, and they need things like student loan forgiveness and free education and a lot of the things that Bernie is fighting for.”

I no longer bother to ask how someone cannot see cause and effect.  The fact that she's a teacher means she's most likely a Marxist, indoctrinating our students and turning their brains into mush so that she churns out identical copies of herself, unable to think critically, unable to use logic, and unable to follow a chain of events to determine the cause.

She shut down her side hustle because of "crushing taxes", but still supports Bernie and his socialist bullshit utopia.  Which means she's not smart enough to put two and two together, or she's so narcissistic that she doesn't care how many other businesses get crushed, she wants her free shit.
