Current government in Washington is an embarrassment, particularly in regard to inept foreign policy. Whatever they do is based on ideology, not reason. It is often counterproductive, producing the opposite of what was intended. Witness their war on fossil fuels because of their climate-change ideology. It’s making fossil fuels more valuable as in pricier, not less.
Democrats are almost a year in office, with control of both houses, and still haven’t passed the infrastructure bill that everyone, including all Republicans, wanted.
The bonanza bill to spend money on “clean energy” boondoggles will require huge increases in taxes and result in vast government waste on projects with little chance of actually affecting climate change or energy production — a case of government deluding itself into thinking that it can change our use of fossil fuels, for they haven’t admitted to themselves that the alternative sources of clean energy like solar and wind will never really amount to much percentage-wise. That’s the hard reality. Currently, all the renewable energy sources produce a mere 12% of total US energy consumption. I suppose that could eventually get to a whopping (sarcastic here) 15%.
Has anyone asked the question whether we really need to send our 3 and 4 year-olds to school? Whether this is really in our and their best interest? It smacks me of robbing toddlers of their carefree childhood.
The one idea that the Democrats have put forward that has real merit is the required 15% percent minimum tax on corporations. Long overdue that the government put a stop to corporations that make billions paying no taxes because they have an army of tax attorneys who can game the system.
So what have been the real downsides. We have a government that incentivizes illegal immigration. Our border with Mexico is chaos. We have witnessed a terrible exit from Afghanistan that encourages all our adversaries to see the US as a paper tiger. We now have a government that offers Europe no barrier to dumping steel and aluminum into the US — back to Democratic policies that lead to a rust belt in the US and loss of jobs, all for the sake of “free” trade that ultimately corrodes our economy. In other words, relative to trade policies, the Democrats have learned nothing.
More lame support for Israel by the Democrats. What do you expect from a party that wins election through fraud? Definitely not good government. We are in for a rough ride in the next 4 years. Lunatic policies and uncontrolled spending full of pure waste. In the 60s and 70s, this was the party of outstanding liberals who endorsed freedom of speech and other commendable values. Now it’s the party of thoughtless rabble rousers who really don’t give a shit for the country and its history…who actually want to see the country torn down.
Tax and spend Democrats. They never change.
Nothing good about Biden’s mismanagement of immigration with our border with Mexican and their incredibly naive attempt to embrace Iran again.
Plus this initiative to do something about our crumbling infrastructure, which is long overdue, has all kinds of pork and liberal nonsense packed in with it — an incredibly expensive bill at a time when the government is already loaded with massive debt. At some point, this kind of extraordinary government debt will actually mean something and come back and bite is in the you-know-where.
But this is the kind of “governing” you get from Democrats. The lunatics are now in charge.
The world of unintended consequences and pure politics just to gain votes. The lunatics are in charge now.
We have a government now in Washington that is completely clueless, and of course the media adores it. Immigration chaos dead ahead. America for non-Americans is the policy. “Free” money for everyone, and don’t worry about the cost because it’s free. Peril to the country has become way over the top. We are becoming the banana republic that was always so derided — existing based on printing more money out of thin air. When all this comes apart, they will then say how could you have let this happen? Duh.
The Dems do something asinine, then call it an achievement, and the liberal press applauds. That’s the new world order we have now.
Why Biden and the Democrats are not supporters of the American working class…and Trump is.
The Democrats care more about illegal immigrants — and their potential votes — than they do about American citizens.
So now we have mass acceptance of all the illegal aliens (14 million? 20 million?) as full-fledged citizens without so much as any screening process at all. Looks like their illegal behavior paid off, allowing them to jump the line to get citizenship. I suppose that means the foreigners who got in line were suckers after all. I suppose it also means we have no real borders.
That’s government by Democrats. No question, we are now on a very downward trajectory as a nation. What California has become under their rule is what the rest of the country will become — and soon. The best days are behind us. The future looks very bleak and probably dangerous.
