I recently watched a clip of Democrat Bernie Sanders continuing to advocate for free stuff. This was a clip that included the news that the University of Texas at Austin would now be offering “free” tuition to students whose families earned less than a certain amount so that was very recent news.
Notice that good ol’ Bernie hasn’t offered a dime of his money as he has three multi-million dollar homes to pay for but saying that more needed to be done. What Bernie didn’t make note of was that the professors and janitors at UT-Austin wouldn’t be working for free, so that begs the question of where will the money for the free stuff come from?
First off, nothing is free. Everything has to be paid for by somebody, some way. In the case of the free tuition, the money comes from publicly owned lands leased out for oil and gas production and grazing of livestock. That’s land owned by you and me, folks.
So, the ones paying for the free tuition are the people and companies leasing our lands. Simple as that.
Now, Bernie and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez should be boiling mad at this arrangement. Why? That oil is piped (pipelines bad) to refineries to make petroleum products such as gasoline (bad stuff) to power the limos that Bernie and AOC ride around in. It’s also used to make the jet fuel (another bad thing) that powers the jet planes that the Big B and AOC rocket around the country in, leaving a big carbon (bad) footprint.
As for the grazing leases, Big B and AOC should be having nervous breakdowns over that situation. As AOC has pointed out, cows produce and emit, for wont of a more common term, methane gas. That methane gas is what will kill us all in 12 years, according to AOC, by global warming. Or was it global cooling? Or was it climate change? Well, it must be one of those.
And it’s all because of the free stuff paid for by oil, gas and cows. Democrats. You gotta love ’em.
