Joe Biden Has A New Campaign Slogan He Borrowed From Michael Avenatti

I’m Going To Borrow That Slogan From YOU, Creepy ( Former) Porn Lawyer

How can you not love Joe Biden and his fledgling campaign? From the issue of keeping his hands to himself or “borrowing” words and phrases from other people, he just can’t help himself and I can’t get enough of it.

Joe Biden and Donald Trump are both in Iowa today for a series of speeches and events that are the official, unofficial kick off to their 2020 faceoff against each other. Now I know that I might be counting my chickens too soon but you all know you want this to happen.

Joe kicked off his first event with the theme that he will be carrying throughout the primary season that is simply, “Donald Trump Sucks” and I’m the guy to beat him. Biden has already been skipping events where he knows he will have to fight other Dems and decided to play it safe by just going right after Trump.

However, good ole Uncle Joe who ran for his party’s nomination in 1988 and had to drop out for plagiarizing Neil Kinnock from Britan, has once again decided to borrow another slogan from someone who not only hated Donald Trump also but has endorsed the former Veep.

Still creepy but not a lawyer to a porn star anymore, Michael Avenatti.

According to Fox News

Former Vice President Joe Biden was applauded Tuesday by Democrats in Iowa when he slammed President Trump with his own twist on the president’s famous campaign slogan.

“He says, ‘let’s make America great again,’” Biden said of Trump in Ottumwa. “Let’s make America America again.”

Turns out, that’s not the first time voters have heard that line: Michael Avenatti, the anti-Trump lawyer who briefly promoted a possible Democratic presidential run of his own this year before being indicted on multiple charges, repeatedly used that same slogan in public remarks as he pushed back against Trump.

Avenatti most recently used the line – in endorsing Biden for president in April.

“I am extremely happy that @JoeBiden has decided to enter the race,” Avenatti tweeted at the time. “He offers Dems the very best chance in 2020, especially in key states. He has the fight, intelligence and fortitude to beat Trump and begin to make America, America again. He has my enthusiastic support.”

Isn’t he precious?

Biden has already been tagged this cycle for lifting some lines and now they decide to just go right to the guy who is in a helluva lot of trouble with Nike, Stormy and a bunch of others and just take his phrase. Who from the Hillary Clinton campaign did the Bernie Sanders camp plant in Joe’s? That person should win the campaign manager of the year.

Make America, America Again? How about making the last one of Joe Biden’s three campaigns run competently. You would think after 31 years of trying to do this you might have taken some notes on what NOT to do in the future but hey Joe, you gotta be you.

Really, who am I kidding? I’m going to root for this trainwreck of a campaign go all the way and then watch Trump taunt him about going behind a school to whoop his behind. Let’s do this ASAP.

We need to make America Laugh Again.

“Deeply Immoral”: Dan Crenshaw Blasts Rashida Tlaib’s Anti-Poverty Plan, Says It Creates More Govt Dependency

Texas republicans rashida tlaib Politics Policy North Carolina Michigan Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post entitlements democrats Dan Crenshaw Culture Congress Allow Media Exception

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2). Screen grab via C-SPAN.

Fresh off of getting failed Democratic Congressional candidate Brianna Wu (MA) to tweet a self-own acknowledging his point on Christian teachings, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2) has moved on to the next Democrat who needs a reality check: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-13).

Crenshaw appeared on Fox News Monday to discuss a variety of topics, but the one that got the most attention was Tlaib’s trillion dollar plan to combat was she calls income inequality. The Washington Post describes the plan:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has released a plan to spend trillions of federal dollars on direct cash subsidies to working class and poor Americans, including the unemployed and those with no earnings.

Tlaib’s bill would give direct cash help to those at the bottom of the income distribution — annually offering $3,000 to individuals and $6,000 to families — in an attempt to reduce poverty in the United States and bolster the wages of the poor.

[…]

By contrast, Tlaib’s plan offers the full $3,000 or $6,000 credit to those with no income — a significant break from orthodoxy among more centrist Democrats, who have traditionally argued giving federal cash to the unemployed will discourage them from finding jobs.

Speaking with Fox News‘s Martha MacCallum Monday, Crenshaw called Tlaib’s plan “deeply immoral”, and said it was crafted out of a “misunderstanding of economics”:

“It’s a misunderstanding of economics because one, we always have to ask the question ‘how are we going to pay for it?’,” he claimed.

“Are we going to put our children in even more debt? Are we going to raise taxes on somebody else?

“It also doesn’t make sense because it basically entices people not to work. If you are making $49,000 a year, then you’re going to have an incentive not to take that extra job or extra promotion because you’re going to lose your benefits.”

Tlaib’s plan, the Livable Income for Families (LIFT) Plus Act, would offer direct payments of $3,000 to people making less than $50,000 per year.

Watch video of the interview segment below:

Tlaib’s plan is (surprise!) an even more expansive version of the one Democratic presidential candidate and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) proposed back in January, which Townhall‘s Ian Snively dissected earlier this year.

Pinterest Blocks Pro Life Group Live Action, Calling it PORN.

Can’t people who support babies and Pinterest get along?

The social media giants seem to be flexing their muscle against conservative people and organizations as of late.

The latest case of this comes just today from Pinterest, where one of the largest Pro-Life groups in the country, Live Action has been banned.

This has been months in the making it seems.

Back in Feb of this year, an employee at Pinterest discovered that people who were trying to link back to Live Action were not able to do so being the PRO-LIFE site was labeled a porn site. Now that is a stretch if there ever was one.

James O’ Keefe and his crew over at Project Veritas picked up the trail and found out that it goes much deeper than just labeling a pro-life group incorrectly but also putting CHRISTanity subjects in general on unsafe lists to view.

O’Keefe has been on fire today on twitter about this and here is just a sample…

Live Action President Lila Rose had this to say in response to the Pinterest move to ban the group she founded when she was a teenager…

Based on the evidence provided, it appears that Pinterest intentionally added ‘LiveAction.org’ to a ‘pornography’ blocklist in an effort to suppress our pro-life content from being shared on the platform.

By secretly applying the label of ‘pornography’ to Live Action’s pro-life content, Pinterest demonstrates a concerted effort to sideline a leading pro-life organization the only way they knew how. This does not appear to be a simple mistake. When confronted with an appeal, their employees doubled down and kept LiveAction.org on the pornography list.

What exactly is Pinterest attempting to block? Inspirational messages to pregnant mothers, ultrasound images showing the science of prenatal development, medically accurate information on the abortion procedure, and images saying women deserve better than abortion industry leader Planned Parenthood. Pinterest has targeted Live Action, I believe because our message is so effective at educating millions about the humanity of the preborn child and the injustice of abortion. Pinterest says that their mission is to “help empower people to discover things that they love,” but despite the fact that millions of people love babies and the pro-life cause, they are secretly censoring our life-affirming messages. Pinterest users deserve to know the truth and our messages deserve to be treated fairly. If Planned Parenthood can promote their message on Pinterest, then Live Action should be able to as well.

As I said above there seems to be a clear bias from groups like Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube on how they apply their “Terms Of Service” and apply them. There is no way in God’s Green Earth that anything on Live Action could be labeled “Porn” or as harmful to the public using Pinterest. If it is then the CEO of that company, Ben Silbermann, should go on a live show and explain it. In detail. With Lial Rose on that forum.

I know that I’m dreaming but enough is enough. This one-sided screwed up world view needs to be tackled head-on.

Let’s start with not allowing a Pro-Life group to be slandered in this manner.

Bizarre: Beto Says He’s Staying in Presidential Race Because Polls Said He’d Lose Against Ted Cruz in 2018, Too

Westlake Legal Group BetoORourkeCharlotteNC4 Bizarre: Beto Says He’s Staying in Presidential Race Because Polls Said He’d Lose Against Ted Cruz in 2018, Too Texas Ted Cruz polls Politics North Carolina It Is Okay To Laugh Iowa Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Beto O'Rourke beto Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020 2018 elections

2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) campaigns in Charlotte, NC – 4/15/19. Screen grab via ABC News.

Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign has fallen so far in polling over the last couple of months that he’s now apparently taken to believing he actually won his 2018 Senate race against Ted Cruz.

During a stop in Cedar Rapids, IA over the weekend, O’Rourke told a journalist that he was not worried about recent polling numbers that put him at 2% in the crucial state of Iowa. Why? Because polls said he wasn’t going to win his race against Ted Cruz, either (bolded emphasis added):

“There is a lot of time before the Iowa caucuses. We’ve never been guided by a poll before, “ O’Rourke told Yahoo News at the opening of his Cedar Rapids field office. “If you were to look at the Texas Senate race, the first couple of months after we were in, no poll was going to say that we were going to win. When I first ran for Congress in 2012, against an incumbent and against some very long odds no poll at any point said that we were going to win. And yet yet we did. And if I am lucky enough to to be the nominee and then to become the president of the United States, no poll will guide the decisions that I make.”

Watch video of the exchange below:

Except, ya know, O’Rourke sorta lost his Senate race against Cruz.

As Hot Air‘s Allapundit noted, it’s “as if Stacey Abrams’s delusion somehow became infectious and Beto caught it from her.”

Or maybe he got his words twisted and really meant to say that early polls didn’t give him a shot at even coming close to defeating Cruz. Let’s hope that’s all it is. Because we sure don’t need another delusional failed candidate like Stacey Abrams on our hands.

Entrenched Politician Elizabeth Warren Suggests Newcomer Trump Will Not Give Up Power, Needs to be Pried from Office

Elizabeth Warren – Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

 

Is it projection, or obliviousness, that leads a political animal to accuse others of being political?

It would not be a day in D.C. without an elected official displaying a stark lack of self-awareness. Elizabeth Warren, in her continued attempt to appear as normal and every-day gosh-darn normal as you people in those strange flyover states, is still struggling with image control. After a bungled beer video Liz is still working on that “relatable” thing, bare she’s trying!

Her latest comes from the Team Warren Twitter account which, in true “Hello fellow kids” fashion has in its bio the opening of “Welcome Stans”. (Ugh, I swear…) The account gives a video that has Warren in an impromptu discussion with a young girl. Warren also has a children’s book that is centered upon herself, I would point out, and maybe if she focused a bit more on those who are of proper voting age she may be polling higher, but I’m not a campaign advisor, so what do I know?!

The conversation was so impromptu and off-the-cuff-candid that it was captured on video, with subtitles provided.

 

The young girl asks Senator Warren a question, borne of undiluted curiosity in a completely natural and not-at-all pre-planned fashion. “Why is there still sexism now?” asked the young one. Warren next goes on a lengthy and involved response, that in no way actually addressed the girl’s concerns.

I kind of think it’s people who have power,” says the Senator with a more than 1/1024 percent amount of earnestness, “don’t actually like to give it up! So you kind of have to pry it away.” She also mentioned having to “fight for what you believe in”, so says the woman who was given the Democratic Party nomination for the Massachusetts Senate seat. (As a complete newcomer she ran unopposed, somehow, so not much of a “fight” there.)

Now, this is a clear reference towards the current President, Donald Trump. This is a woman who has been in DC for 7 years, and has worked the system prior as a lawyer. Trump has never been in politics before the 2016 election. But he is the one who needs to be pried out of his office, for some reason, though he has not even completed the first term. The implication is clear; he is not a rightful occupant of the White House and it is possible he will not vacate in proper fashion once evicted, so to speak.

The irony is this is coming from someone who is comfortably cemented in DC politics, who has been shielded and coddled by her party and now she feels practically entitled. She has made a disaster of herself with her heritage issue, and yet continues to be propped up to the extent that she is one of the front-runners for the party nomination.

Yet here she stands, uninfluenced by shame, suggesting that it is others who are not rightfully in place, and may need to be forcibly extricated in order to make room for her arrival. Amusing that the woman who cannot even admit to errors of her claims of genealogy, because she needs to cling to her position of power, suggests anyone else is having a hard time surrendering their own.

Ghoul Alert: ‘Teen Vogue’ Instructs Young Girls on How to Get Abortions – Without Parental Consent

Westlake Legal Group abortion-on-demand-without-apology Ghoul Alert: ‘Teen Vogue’ Instructs Young Girls on How to Get Abortions – Without Parental Consent Teen Vogue Social Media sex education Pro-Life Politics North Carolina New York Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Allow Media Exception Abortion

I’m not sure what’s worse: Teen Vogue sexualizing 9-year-old drag queen boys, the magazine publishing a “guide to anal sex“, or a more recent story they did advising teenage girls how to get abortions without parental consent:

The magazine has a monthly “Down to Find Out” advice column, which is maintained by feminist writer Nona Willis Aronowitz, who was super-excited to announce her column gig last month:

In her latest column, Aronowitz advises a 16-year-old girl on how to get an abortion – without the consent of her parents:

Q: I’m 16, I’m pregnant, and I don’t want to be. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to get an abortion without my parents’ permission, but I’m really scared to tell them because they are both against abortion. What should I do?

Aronowitz, who is also the author of a subscription-only newsletter called “F*cking Through the Apocalypse”, told the teen she once had been a pregnant teenager, too – but had pro-abortion parents who helped her obtain access to Plan B “without judging or admonishing” her. Other teens weren’t so lucky, she lamented. But according to Aronowitz, that shouldn’t deter a teenager from getting an abortion (bolded emphasis added):

And it’s only logical that if teens are mature enough to become parents, they are mature enough to decide whether or not they want to give birth. Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs.

Noting that 37 states have some form of parental consent laws on the books, Aronowitz advised:

If you live in one of the handful of states in which a minor can get an abortion without parental involvement — and if you don’t want to tell your parents — you’re all set. But if the law does require that your parents are involved, it’s time for some soul-searching about how you think they’ll react when confronted directly with their pregnant child’s desire to not be.

Aronowitz first advised that teenage girls whose parents are not pro-choice to try and tell them anyway, unless they felt like they would be in danger or kicked out of the house. If they did, Aronowitz suggested the teens go for what’s called a “judicial bypass procedure”:

If yes, there is a legal option in 36 states that would let you get an abortion without parental approval called a judicial bypass procedure — an infantilizing holdup to which nobody should have to resort. The process for a judicial bypass is different in every state, but in each case that it’s an option, it involves a minor testifying before a judge and receiving court approval to access abortion care without telling their parents.

Whether or not a state requires a judicial bypass, Aronowitz lets her teen readers know they can contact a local abortion fund if they need help paying for their abortion (without their parent’s knowledge, of course). She also urged young girls “talk to another adult” about what they are going through if they don’t want to talk to their parents.

In response to Aronowitz’s column, Twitter users let her have it:

That would certainly be a switch!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Already Demanding Higher Pay, and Says She Will Become Corrupt if Not Rewarded

Westlake Legal Group AOC-Speech-620x361 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Already Demanding Higher Pay, and Says She Will Become Corrupt if Not Rewarded socialism Liberal Elitism Government Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post entitlements democrats Congressional Pay Congress Congreess AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cotez

To call Freshman Congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “brazen” is to traffic in redundancy. Since her arrival in D.C. she has moved between acting entitled to demanding obedience, well beyond her pay grade — and now she wants a higher pay grade as well. The subject of Congressional pay raises has come up and AOC, who has been on the job for mere months, is already stating she needs to be paid more. Maybe you can toss a hint of extortion in that mix as well.

If you have ever worked in an office you may have encountered this type. More than ambitious, a new arrival is brought in who questions methods and challenges protocols of a business that have been long established as successful. This person acts in a fashion as if they have all the answers, long before they have even heard all the questions. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is our Congressional new-hire, acting this way before even reading the employee handbook (in her case, the Constitution.)

When the issue was first brought up yesterday AOC did not demure as a new member, nor show any modesty, barely out of her probationary period. “It may not be politically popular to say but honestly this is why there’s so much pressure to turn to lobbying firms and to cash in on member service after people leave because precisely of this issue.”

Note what is not being suggested here. She is not living by her own lecture, suggesting everyone in Congress operate on a “living wage”, as she frequently promotes. It is not even about living expenses; her rationale is that they need more money to keep from straying towards special interests.

Seemingly someone got to her, and this morning she went on a stumbling twitter run that altered her message. In the end it only made her look more tone deaf on the issue, and more entitled.

At least now she attempted to include living expenses as a motivator behind the demand for more money. But note that hint as a politicin of needing more money, or else she will stray.

Yea, except we are not talking about “worker pay” now are we? She, being in the position of ruling and making new legislation, would be considered “management”. And what has been one of her standard complaints about business? The pay discrepancy between executives and the workers.

Alexandria’s current salary in Congress is $174,000. This is far greater than the US average salary of workers without a high school diploma ($27+K), or those who graduated high school ($37+K). Even looking at those with a college education she earns nearly triple the rate of $66+K annually. So here is the woman, who is concerned about the wage disparity, calling for herself to be granted an even higher salary, in direct opposition to her socialist bleatings.

To justify her demand AOC invokes the likelihood of politicians turning to outside interests, unless they get what is coming to them. The argument of “Pay us, or we’ll turn corrupt” is a disturbing piece of leverage for this newcomer to be invoking.

One of the many assured results of Socialist rulers is the corruption and graft taking place in the government. The people may starve, but 5-star meals will be had by the leadership. For Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman in Congress who is an avowed promoter of socialist ideals, she is simply following that Socialist playbook. While she has spoken like a true statist when invoking the plight of workers she has also acted in true Socialist leader form.

Justin Amash Resigns From Group He Helped Found, House Freedom Caucus

Sometimes things move pretty quick.

Just yesterday right here on the pages of Red State I wrote a piece about the lone elected Republican in Washington D.C. who feels that President Trump should be impeached. That individual is Rep. Justin Amash from the great State of Michigan.

Here is my article from yesterday Hero Or Heel? Justin Amash After His Trump Impeachment Stance.

Now comes word that Amash has resigned from the group and the board that he helped create, the House Freedom Caucus. According to ole reliable CNN

Rep. Justin Amash on Monday stepped down from the conservative House Freedom Caucus less than a month after becoming the first Republican member of Congress to say President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses.

“I have the highest regard for them and they’re my close friends,” he told CNN. “I didn’t want to be a further distraction for the group.”

“It was a positive meeting. It wasn’t negative,” Amash said.

He emphasized his decision was voluntary and that he remains on good terms with his colleagues.

Amash had been rebuked by the Freedom Caucus after he tweeted his opinion back in May that President Trump should be impeached with what he read in the Mueller report.

The timing of this does lead to some speculation of what is in the Congressman’s future. He had not been attending meetings of the group since at least March due to his disagreements of how his colleagues were drifting closer to Trump than he liked. So the resignation now could be in response to the official rebuke he received last month and as Amash tells CNN he no longer wants to be a distraction for the others.

Possibly he is seriously considering running for the GOP nomination for Senate next year in Michigan or taking on Trump nationally. Amash recently as his town hall had not ruled out the possibility of running against Trump in some sort of capacity next year.

Only time will tell.

It’s Not Over: Resolution Introduced in PA State House to Censure Bully Brian Sims

Westlake Legal Group brian-sims-outside-planned-parenthood-SCREENSHOT-620x363 It’s Not Over: Resolution Introduced in PA State House to Censure Bully Brian Sims Social Media Pro-Life Politics planned parenthood Pennsylvania North Carolina Front Page Stories Front Page First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture brian sims Allow Media Exception Abortion

PA State Rep. Brian Sims (D) stalks pro-lifers outside of a Planned Parenthood. Screen grab via Life News HQ.

Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims (D) might have thought the uproar surrounding his despicable attempts at harassing and doxxing three pro-life teenagers and an elderly pro-life woman at a local Planned Parenthood were behind him, but one state legislator says not so fast.

PennLive reports on Rep. Jerry Knowles (R) and his efforts at having Sims censured over his actions:

Rep. Jerry Knowles is seeking support for a resolution that asks for Sims, a four-term Philadelphia Democrat, to be removed from the four committees of which he is a member and to bar him from being appointed to any positions or committees for the remainder of his term that expires on Nov. 30, 2020.

[…]

House Democratic spokesman Bill Patton said previously Sims has discussed his behavior with House Democratic and Republican leaders and Democratic leaders “are satisfied it will not be repeated. Republican leaders are aware of this.” Patton did not respond to a request for comment about Knowles’ resolution late Tuesday afternoon.

Noting Sims has failed to apologize for what he did, Knowles listed his reasons for seeking the Democrat’s censure in a memo requesting co-sponsors:

On the first occasion, Representative Sims recorded himself berating, harassing, and violating the First Amendment rights of an individual, whom he labeled, an “old, white lady” for peacefully protesting and praying in public.

On the second occasion, Representative Sims again recorded himself berating, harassing others. He went a step further the second time, though, calling for the “doxing” of three minor children and one adult female. By soliciting strangers on the internet for their personal identifying information (i.e. names and addresses), Sims placed these citizens in reasonable fear for their own safety, merely because they were exercising their constitutional right to peacefully protest.

It should be noted that Representative Sims also used his elected position to intimidate the individuals with whom he was interacting, clearly stating on the videos that he was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

As part of my censure resolution, I ask that Representative Sims be removed as a member of all standing committees and that he receives no appointments to any positions or committees that fall under the authority of the Speaker or House Leadership, for the remainder of this term.

Since that time, numerous co-sponsors have signed on to the resolution. You can read the full text of House Resolution 387 here.

Knowles is right. To date, Sims has not apologized to the women he stalked at the Philadelphia Planned Parenthood.

The resolution is being well-received by pro-life groups, according to Life News HQ:

Maria V. Gallagher, legislative director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, praised the effort.

“Women and girls should not be harassed simply for exercising their First Amendment rights,” Gallagher told LifeNews. “For the sake of the dignity of women, the Constitution, and the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, this resolution deserves passage.”

The Pennsylvania General Assembly is controlled by Republicans. The state’s governor, Tom Wolf, is a Democrat who issued a tepid statement on the Sims bullying incidents last month.

Beto O’Rourke Says Eliminating Citizenship Test for New Immigrants is ‘Something For Us To Think About’

2020 Democratic Presidential candidate and former backbencher Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) said that eliminating the citizenship test is “something for us to think about” at a candidate forum at Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa over the weekend.

Yahoo News national political reporter Brittany Shepherd was among the reporters present who reported on O’Rourke’s comments, noting that he was replying to another panelist who characterized the citizenship test as a “structural barrier for immigrants.”

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website, the citizenship test has two parts, one to test English proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing, and another to test civics knowledge. The USCIS has study materials and practice tests available on the website as well.

The civics portion is drawn from a list of 100 possible questions. Applicants are asked up to ten questions and must answer at least six correctly in order to pass. Applicants get two chances to take the English and civics tests per application, and if they fail either portion, will be retested on that portion between 60 and 90 days from the date of the original interview.

The test has generally been regarded as something that requires study, testing knowledge that many immigrants might not already know, but not overly onerous.

More importantly, the inclusion of concepts like democracy, freedom of speech and other rights, and free elections, are a crucial part of integrating a new immigrant into the American system.

The test needs to be fair, the scoring system clear and simple, and the materials potentially subject to testing readily available, and the overall administration of the test conducted in a transparent and ethical manner. But to suggest that immigrants not show basic proficiency in English and American history and our system of government is absurd.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) called O’Rourke’s suggestion “stunning” and proof that the Democratic presidential candidates were “embracing the far left, fringy, extreme wing of their party.” Twitchy had more reactions to this radical proposal.

Debates about immigration and what reforms would improve our system are a good and valid discussion, and to be expected as the 2020 elections rapidly approach. However, eliminating a basic test that asks an immigrant to prove a basic proficiency in our language and civics, and commitment to the American system, is a terrible idea that would only serve to make the system worse.
