Just the Facts: Democrats can give away everything for free until they turn blue in the face; however, the same irrefutable, simple rules of economics still apply- someone still must foot the bill

“Just the Facts: Democrats can give away everything for free until they turn blue in the face; however, the same irrefutable, simple rules of economics still apply- someone still must foot the bill” by Chef Hector “El Chilote” Santanamos de Soto




The FREER everything is, the more it costs…
Shafter, CA, 03-21-2019 Thursday: Amigos, welcome, here it is, one minute after midnight and those of us in the world of professional food service are either still at work, getting up and preparing to go to work, or will soon be heading home to sleep a few restless hours before doing the whole show over again.  It is what it is, to own a business or to have a job in the United States of America is a grand and glorious thing.  Only here do we truly have the ability to carve our own way throughout life.
We have a pack of Democrats seeking the nomination of the party so they can hoist the standard next year at the convention in Milwaukee whom at first look, might seem to be somewhat acceptable.  Unfortunately, as we dig into them and their varied backgrounds, I have the sneaking suspicion that unless someone with moxie actually enters the race, the party is looking at a defeat of historical proportions.    
Currently, the candidates all seem to copycat one another, not a single one of them has any originality unless we look back at Senator Bernie Sanders who came up with the foundation of what the rest now claim as their own policies.  Free this, free that, free everything, and the world and the country will become a utopia where everyone is equal.
As a youth, like everyone else I knew growing up, we believed in liberalism.  Being liberal meant we sought freedom of speech, that we sought equality in every facet of society, and that we all strived together to end wars, empower the people, and to make life better for everyone.
As time went by, however, we realized this was all pie in the sky, a pipe dream, a mid-summer night’s fantasy, of sorts, like going to dive bars in Taft.  Everyone had to seek his or her own equality without waiting for someone from the government seeking us out and telling us they were going to ‘help’ us or were going to ‘fix’ things. 
The last thing we wanted was anyone from government coming to see us.  Nope, did not want them seeking us out because it meant they would try to stick a gun in our hands and send us to Vietnam.  Fortunately for me, I was at the end of the age scale to get drafted as they liked them 17-20 years-old and I was 24-25.
Now, however, the young people are like baby birds that won’t abandon the nest.  Instead of mom and dad booting them out, forcing them to fly or fall on their own, they cling to their parents and transfer their hopes to the government to do everything for them.  When government does everything for someone, it robs them of their vitality and their desire to accomplish things for themselves.  In essence, it makes them slaves of the very ‘utopia’ they seek to create.
Bernie Sanders set all of this insanity in motion and each of the challengers who have entered the race after him all steal from him and then build upon it, calling it their ‘own.’ 
It is reminiscent of how white rock-and-rollers- whether Elvis, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, or anyone else- robbed Chuck Berry and other rock-and-roll/rhythm and blues trailblazers and then made vast fortunes from the theft and reinvention of their music.  It wasn’t right but unless someone calls them out on it, they will continue doing it just as Led Zeppelin ripped off numerous black bluesmen to create their unique sound.
The buzzword now is FREE.  The Democrats want to give us FREE healthcare, they want to give us COST-FREE education, they want to give us GUARANTEED government jobs, as well as GUARANTEED healthy food, housing, and even leisure, free, free, and still more free.  Someone must pay for all this FREE stuff.  Who is going to pick up the tab?
In harmony, all the Democrats seeking the nomination of my party say the ‘corporations will’ and that ‘the wealthy will.’  Stupendous, mis amigos, absolutely stupendous. 
I am sure they understand that all the corporations returning to America, opening plants and factories, employing fellow Americans, and giving us hope again can easily abandon the country and go back to China, down to Mexico or to Central America, maybe to India, possibly to Taiwan and other foreign locales and produce the same goods for far less. 
Thanks to the business acumen of President Donald Trump, far more businesses have returned to the United States than have shuttered their doors and laid people off.  We hear that there are one million MORE jobs in the country at present than there are people to fill them so why would candidates seeking the nomination of the party want to drive a stake through all the progress we are currently enjoying?  Out of spite?  Really? 
The thing that pulls the rug out from under each of the present number of Democrats trying to win the nomination is that to give away everything FREE means that everyone forced to giving away everything must do it willingly which no one will.  No matter what threats one uses, no matter what force one employs, no matter how onerous Big Brother becomes, the simple economic truths still apply.
Soak the rich, the rich leave for better locales.  Go after corporations, they relocate their money back offshore in tax havens like they always do.  That leaves the middle class as the only remaining pot of wealth to rob and once robbed, in fifteen-to-twenty years, the country begins resembling Venezuela and Cuba.  We want to be like THEM?
Tomorrow, we will look at the various candidates.  One who interests me is Chinese-American businessman Andrew Yang.  He wants to give everyone- no matter their station in life- one grand a month.  Question: when we receive our grand, do we have to pay taxes on it?  No one has yet to answer to that question.
Adios, mis amigos, we will be back tomorrow for more exciting hot talk.  Hope you will join me for some coffee.  I take mine black.

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog.  I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse.  I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career.  I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own.  I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska.  From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug.

On June 05, 2013Queen released their next album and their next compilation effort, “Queen at 40, Volume Three.”  If you have yet to get into the music of this prodigious group, well, this is the best way in which to do it because this effort contains the third quintet of albums remastered PLUS extras in a great box set.  We hope you will use whatever site you visit for fine rock music and pick this incredible effort up- you will not be disappointed, we guarantee it.


Posted @ the Friday, June 29, 2012 Blog Post:


Occasionally, we get off-track and get albums mixed up in the rotation but so flipping what, right?  Today, we have the first best-of compilation by the Los Angeles-based rock-and-roll band, Spirit: “Best of Spirit,” which came out on August 08, 1973.  This album has the crème de la crème of the first four albums plus the big single that received a great deal of airplay back in the day, “1984.”  This album is definitely one we hope everyone will consider adding to his or her collection as it is the sound of the times, heavy-duty, smoking psychedelic jazz-rock that will blow your mind- you will love it.

Posted @ the Thursday, June 05, 2014 Blog Post A:

Jeff Beck released an abbreviated best of collection entitled, “Best of Beck” on November 06, 1995,  an album that gives the listener a glimpse into the fabulous career that this veteran axe man has had since entering the rock world in the early 1960s.  We urge everyone who has not yet taken our advice into hearing this man and his amazing guitar mastery, this is how you do it so seek it out wherever you buy the best in rock-and-roll music- you will be glad you did.
