Is Communism Taking Over The United States?


Yes! Communism is trying to take over the United States. Because you thought told yourself you were paying attention while making a concerted effort not to pay attention.

The good news is you might just luck out and communism doesn't take over because the robots do first and trust me, we will all be lucky that it was the robot overlords that got on top of the Iron Throne and not the commissars.

But anyway here...

My New Book Out This Week:

I just wrote a book about communism's founder, Karl Marx, and what a staggeringly messed up individual he was! Until I started researching for this book, I had no idea how much of a loser-- like, a seriously, seriously terrible loser-- and how much of a disgusting and deeply morally repugnant person Karl Marx was.

So if you think you would enjoy reading an epic 10,000 word roast of communism's founder...
