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.
US Energy Consumption by Type of Energy
They estimate that 700,000 people are trafficked every year, and about half are children, with adolescent girls being a primary target. Only about 1 percent are caught in this illegal trade. An open-borders mentality among politicians facilitates this crime, a crime against humanity.
Bring back Trump. Let’s have borders again. And a foreign policy that makes sense.
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.
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.
Border With Mexico
Biden’s immigration “policy” has created an insane situation with our border with Mexico, a situation that the Trump administration was finally trying to get a handle on after decades of ignoring the growing illegal-alien problem that no politician had the guts to tackle. Now things will go from bad to much worse with this nutty open-borders concept pushed by our very foolish president. The US is definitely in decline. It’s just going to get worse from here. The lunatics are in charge.
Comparing Trump to Biden, would you rather have an egomaniac or a fool in charge of the country? I go with the egomaniac. But we are about to see what a fool can do to us.
Some fresh air, for a change…
Why Biden and the Democrats are not supporters of the American working class…and Trump is.
