Random thoughts on the passing scene.

Does anyone really believe newly-minted presidential candidate Joe Biden told President Obama not to endorse him? Likewise, who seriously thinks world leaders called the former vice president and practically begged him to run for president and “save the world”?

It’s difficult to imagine a President Biden standing up to America’s enemies. Last week, he couldn’t stand up to the ladies on “The View.”

The number of official Democratic presidential contenders, 20, is now equal to the size of my mom’s family. Mom is one of 20 – she’s No. 18 – children, all single births. Really.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year, $34 million investigation that found no evidence of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election was evidently a huge waste of time and money, given Democrats intend to keep probing the issue.

To appreciate the benefits of free market capitalism in America, go to any major grocery store and marvel at the mind-boggling array of products available for purchase.

Some Democrats favor lowering the federal voting age to 16, claiming 16-year-olds are mature enough to handle the responsibility of casting a ballot. Of course, some of these same Democrats want to raise the age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21, explaining 18-year-olds are too immature to handle such a weapon.

Politics ain’t beanbag. These days, it’s like a steel folding chair across the back, professional wrestling style.

At a recent CNN town hall event, democratic socialist candidate for president Sen. Bernie Sanders denied he ever supported or believed in authoritarian communism as it existed in the Soviet Union. Sanders honeymooned in the Soviet Union in 1988. Upon returning to America, and in the tradition of useful idiots everywhere, Sanders fell all over himself heaping praise on America’s communist rival, a nation that would cease to exist some three years later.

California’s stringent gun control laws failed to stop a recent deadly shooting in Chabad of Poway synagogue. Politicians might want to consider the nation’s gun violence is highly concentrated in a small percentage of the American population. Perhaps rather than proposing more sweeping legislation that essentially targets the law-abiding, politicians should focus on more narrowly tailored interventions in dealing with gun violence.

Back to Joe Biden and his claim that world leaders want him to be president. Does this mean a President Biden would be more concerned with placating world leaders at the expense of advancing U.S. interests?

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren is too fixated on her class warfare platform to see that her college debt forgiveness scheme pads the bank accounts of the rich folks she regularly demonizes.

The most recent episode of “Game of Thrones” was something of a letdown. It was often literally too dark to see what was happening, and the conclusion was a giant red herring.

Yes, this essay pays homage to the “Random Thoughts” columns penned by the great Dr. Thomas Sowell.
