Until COVID, we had been living in a golden age in America-and it's easy to take such a privileged life for granted. The unemployment rate had been at an all-time low (particularly for minorities). But Americans need to understand how important it is to earn your way through life, rather than be given everything. Dennis explains.

@28:25 The politicization of every sphere of life, as Leftists/Progressives have done and continue to do, extending the reach of the State into everything, is totalitarian, it is fascist. As Mussolini (who was idolized by the American Left, in the 20s and 30s, by the way) said, "Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State."

Test Proves MSM Is Enemy of the People. You may have heard, that Obama signed a law granting journalists the right to use propaganda on US citizens. You dont trust who said that because you never heard that from TV or anywhere else. So you decide to a search for yourself to see if its true or not. Go ahead type this into Google " Obama approves Propaganda Against US Citizens" and see what comes up. Pay close attention to the headlines and who published it, these are Traitors to the USA, and will be punished accordingly. If the headline reads: Obama did not sign a law allowing propaganda, you now have Proof that the MSM is the Enemy of the People or at least that particular publisher. In 2012 Barak Obama signed the Defense Authorization Act and tucked into the act was H.R.5736 - Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012. This Act allowed for Journalists to use propaganda on its own citizens, essentially, giving them a license to deceive. This had never been done before in USA history, but the MSM didnt think it was newsworth enough to tell you! (please share everywhere)

I think I’ve just given up on our country. I am no longer going to watch the news. I am no longer going to get involved in anything political or even listen to anything political anymore. This country could become Venezuela I’ll take care of my little family the best I can threw it all. I’m sick and tired of the hate from the left and then the right being told we are hatemongers. As my grandmother used to say, “what you don’t know won’t hurt you.” So I think from now on my healthiest option is to be blissfully unaware

My mother has received free monies from Government all her adult life. With all my heart I wish I could tell you she is a strong woman but I can’t but I can tell you all 4 of her kids are strong. We broke the cycle and have good jobs that provide more than enough to raise our own families. We are Hispanic and either work overtime or do side jobs too. I will work for as long as God will allow me,. We also have to work on our marriages regularly even my lesbian relationship. Anything worth having requires work, once I came to terms with this everything started moving forward for me. Work is not a bad word, embrace it and I promise your life will be brighter. Handouts is a bad word in our family unless it comes from another family member and even then we take It with reluctance and consider it a loan until we straighten out what the issue is.

Gods love is unconditional. Jesus being the messiah and the son of man died and shed his blood as the ultimate sacrifice for our sin. There is no way I can earn my salvation through good work because I constantly fall short compared to a perfect God. If you think you can earn Gods favor through works you might as well hand Him a dirty tampon. Think about the animal sacrifices that the levites had to perform. If you could really earn your salvation through work then I highly doubt any sacrifice would be needed. It is by grace not work.

Dennis, Schools still do and forever will teach Shakespeare, not because he was great but because they have been told he was great and therefore should be taught. I have a much differing view. I think he was a moron and his English was weird, even for those times. His plays are childish and stupid. There are some scholars who think he never existed and his works were either by different authors collaborating or written under a pseudonym by a woman.

My only issue with the college loan is this, how do we say all debt except student loans are dischargeable? Debt is debt. To allow someone to discharge 60000 worth of clothes, jewelry, and dinners and somehow student loans are different, seems to me nuts😖

Though provoking quote or the day for me, "You breath, you get." i.e. even oxygen, required for life, does not come without earning it through the the effort of your diaphragm muscles. Leftism would have the government hook us all up to ventilators because Oxygen is a right and we shouldn't have to put effort into it anything required for life.

Is it? i think it's just bullshitting you know why? If freedom is so important, than why some people keeps doing the same stupid shit, despite the fact it's totally pointless? Because it's not important at all... it's just a cheap excuse, to do the things they want to do. But why i pray any sort of excuse necessary to do what you *love* to do? You love it. And this is reason enough.

Instead of calling people out for “wanting free” stuff. How about you call out the system that disenfranchises certain demographics of people from making an honest living, locking them up when they commit crimes to make ends meet and disenfranchising them even more when they get out and then acting surprised when they do crime again after being disenfranchised even more, legally at that. And NO this is not an argument for free stuff but rather an argument against disenfranchising people who would otherwise work and then locking them up for going outside of the law to survive, while simultaneously painting those demographics as inherently criminal for doing things that you’re leaving them no choice but to do. And obviously I’m talking about economic crimes . Not rape or wanton violence.

I'm reminded of West Side Story and the song America. One of the lines in that song says: Everything is free in America. That song and that short verse impacted a generation of Latinos to think that getting something for nothing is good. We all know that when we get something for free it turns into bondage.

I really try to be open minded and listen to conservative voices to be fair and to understand the perspective. But you start off statements like prior to the virus we were living in a golden age and people were getting along. Where????? The same divisive issues were present and only intensified by the pandemic. It’s so hard to hear the conservative perspective because it’s always absent of basic obvious verifiable facts! This is what shuts down the conversation, just the blatant ridiculousness is a non-starter. I’m good.....

First time I’ve seen Dennis contradict himself. He thinks the political stance of a company shouldn’t affect whether you partake in their product, but at the same time he said he won’t eat ice cream in honor of mass murderers... But what if the ice cream is great? You just said you’d listen to Wagner’s music all the time, but you don’t like the composer himself... doesn’t line up to me.

The author of the Bible is the Spirit of God; the "penmen" of the Hebrew scriptures were Israelites, such as Moses and the prophets, and David, inspired by the Spirit of God. The Greek scriptures were penned by the Jewish Apostles, the words inspired by the Spirit of God. It was Greek because Alexander the Great conquered ancient Israel without deadly weapons, because a vision given to a "just" man, a man who believed the Word of God; that man told the the leaders about the vision. The justified man told the leaders of ancient Israel to read the prophesy about the Greek leader, Alexander,, from the book of Daniel.

Well Dennis, to your point, a bunch of Asian flight attendants would be pretty hot! Why not? Why not have a bunch of blonde, or redhead, or Latina flight attendants? That could be a great way to entice customers with their image and branding. Ever notice how in foreign airlines, such as Cathay pacific, air China, or Korean air, the flight attendants are usually all knockout 20-somethings and female? That makes a lot of sense for your staff to be attractive if you want to sell people on a service, such as air travel, provided by your staff

I disagree with some aspects of this video, but agree that earning money is better than being given money. Should we make children earn money for school lunch, when their parents don't have enough money to feed themselves? I consider myself a classical liberal, but today I would be considered conservative. Still not this conservative. This just seems like the right wing version of outrage culture. I get it things ARE outrageous, but people just need to chill the f out fr.

In the UK everyone thinks 'the government' is responsible for feeding their kids, raising their kids, paying their salaries even when they're not working, and basically ensuring nothing bad ever ever happens to them, even if they've brought it on themselves with their bad life choices. It's taken just 3 generations of the welfare state to achieve this.

it is not just the youth of today that are freeloaders nor the welfare recipients who are milking the system. They simply have learned to use the guilt load of their parents and society's businesses, churches and governments who have done it for millenia. The unfortunate thing is they are caught up in an "end game" according to the Scriptures and they are degenerate in moral, physical and mental wherewithal thanks to being fed the lies that this planet with all it life forms just "happened", we grew up from microbial soup and that America was founded on manifest destiny to spread democracy and capitalism for the betterment of mankind. Just being better citizens and learning to "be happy" as the snowball hurtles toward the wall of reality is an unrealistic expectation. ONLY learning of the Creator and coming under His benevolent order ( the Gov by Christ ) can fix this deep a problem and YES miracles happen if you can take a step of faith. You might not be surprised that many don't want you to do this as you will start to clearly see THEIR freeloading practices a LOT clearer!
