Title: America's waking up to Sleepy Joe
Post by: gogators! on April 04, 2021, 12:21:39 am
Quote
The survey of 1,556 U.S. adults, which was conducted from March 23 to March 25, found that Biden’s approval rating on COVID-19 has climbed 5 percentage points (from 51 percent to 56 percent) over the past two weeks. A near-identical majority of Americans (55 percent) now say they support the administration’s recently passed COVID relief package — up from 52 percent in February — while just a quarter (25 percent) say they oppose it.

Nice to see Americans' appreciation for someone who's working to get the country back on track and doesn't spend all his time watching TV, playing golf and tweeting.

Not being an American, domestic politics there doesn't concern me but what does is how he will handle China. Xi is becoming more aggressive by the day and his goal is the South China Sea to mention but one thing. He is upping his ante against Taiwan and the Philippines (the Philippines president is too deep in Xi's pocket to see the writing on the wall) and should Xi gain control there that will be a disaster for the world.

So, I can understand those who got a nice bit of money liking him (and it's great they got it) but, how is he going to handle Xi?

Biden has failed massively on the issue of securing the border. He would rather virtue signal (e.g., ban the term "illegal alien" from government communication) than deal with the reality of the situation. Local law enforcement gets stuck with picking up the pieces.

"[Sheriff] Martinez, a democrat, says there was poor planning on the part of the current administration.

" 'They just wiped out the old policy under the Trump administration and when they took over, the Biden administration didn't have a plan to put their new policy in place.

" 'These people who are coming across are telling us the Biden administration was going to be more lax than the previous one, and that's why they are crossing. That's why they are coming and it's only going to get worse.'....

"Sheriff Martinez said that there are days where 75% of his resources are being used at this particular illegal border crossing. 'Our resources are being used to help out with illegal immigration, but I need my deputies to be there in order to keep our citizens safe and to help out our federal partners.'....

"Martinez is disappointed with the politicians in Washington, DC. 'It's madness what's going here. I'd like to invite all of them down here, President Biden and VP Harris. They are 2,000 miles away making decisions that are effecting us. It's just a dog and pony show when these senators and congressmen show up and everyone brings all their toys out for an hour or two. They take pictures and put on a show. It'd like to see some action instead of lip service.'

"Sheriff Martinez says he wants the 31 other 'border sheriff's' in Arizona and Texas to be at the table with Washington politicians to discuss policies and strategies on immigration.

" 'We are in trouble when it comes to immigration. I don't think it's going to get any better anytime soon.'

"Even though the Biden administration has so far refused to use the word 'crisis' when it comes to describing the border situation, Sheriff Martinez has no problem saying, 'this is a crisis.' "

Did Sheriff Martinez mention his plan? I didn't think so.

"A key policy is that in addition to the mass reversals of Trump's policies, the Biden administration wants to provide an eight-year path to citizenship for the almost 11 million unauthorized people living in the US.


The citizenship timeline is pretty easy to understand. Those living in the US without legal status as of Jan. 1, 2021, could gain temporary legal status, or a green card, in five years. To do so, they'd need to pass a background check, pay taxes and meet other requirements. Millions of unauthorized immigrants already pay taxes by using an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. Workers without legal status generate millions of dollars for Social Security and Medicare, yet aren't eligible for any of the benefits that accompany a Social Security number.

After that, Biden's plan outlines a three-year path to naturalization if the person pursues citizenship.

This new legislation, particularly HR 6, will provide "conditional permanent resident status" to qualifying nonresidents who entered the US as minors. The bill requires the individual to have been physically present in the US since Jan. 1, 2021, pass a background check, and be enrolled in an educational program.

HR 1603, the legislation regarding migrant farmers, seeks to deliver lawful status, better working conditions and stability for immigrants in the agricultural industry."

The only thing blocking progress on US immigration policy is the crazy caucus in the Senate.

Trump reduced the numbers coming over.  Biden wants to bring in illegal immigrants and give them citizenship as fast as possible because he knows they'll vote Democratic.

Giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship has been an issue since at least when George Bush was president. It was part of his platform. "Woke support" is a fundamentally wrong descriptor.

If they're Republican voters, the only freedom they're for is to free ride on honest taxpayers. Republicans identify themselves by what they're against, which is pretty much everything, not with what they are for.

Taxing ammunition does not really accomplish the goal you are seeking.

You know, when your entire online persona for years has been bulldozing, bludgeoning and insulting people in blunt fashion, pretending to be offended at the "R-word" and "C-word" and that such insults are so uncalled for really comes across as disingenuous.

Erm, my comment was pretty clearly in response to your criticism that I'm not taking care of a poster's comments made the previous evening (which would be Saturday evening) ... which is the weekend for most of us. Have a little consideration for us poor overworked mods!  :cry:

In any case, if you feel that there's a post that doesn't follow the ToS, you would be doing everybody a favour by reporting it rather than posting your complaints on a thread. The latter that can easily be overlooked:
I don't check every thread regularly. Especially not the ones about American politics (as I'm not American). Neither are the other 2 active mods.
   When people report comments, it brings up a little flashy red bar at the bottom of the page for moderators (which, annoyingly, is impossible to get rid of until the complaints are dealt with), which means that they can immediately look at the issue. It's a pretty effective way of getting comments that break the ToS deleted.
  Also, please keep in mind that disagreeable opinions don't necessarily break the ToS. It can be hard figuring out exactly where the line lies between effective moderation and being overly censorious. Including a brief reason on why the offending comment should be deleted can be very helpful!

Also, *everyday* is a weekend when your job is awesome!  :smiley:

NorthStar was silent for most of the weekend after his Friday night binge, so I'm going to guess he had an absolutely epic hangover.

Imagine waking up to that mess: The computer's still on, Glenn Beck videos entering their 10th hour of autoplay. The browser's got like 25 tabs open, all screaming some form of lunacy beneath cheapo banner ads hawking gold bullion and boner pills. Waygook.org has automatically logged you out, leaving a rant unpublished. A solitary sock, surprisingly clean, lies tangled with bedsheets, reminding you of further desires unconsummated.

You quickly scan your memory.

Did I sent angry private messages to people? Or I did I just post everything publicly? Holy shit, everyone can track my whole thought process throughout the night (up until I grabbed the sock, anyway). Oh my God... I'll keep quiet over the next couple days. Then I'll return on Monday morning and post cartoons comparing Joe Biden to Karl Marx. That'll repair the damage.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2020/12/17/media_saves_joe_biden_--_just_as_it_saved_barack_obama_144872.html

Quote
Hunter Biden, President-elect Joe Biden's son, is undergoing a tax investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware concerning Hunter's lucrative work with Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company on whose board Hunter sat, despite a lack of energy experience and the ability to speak Russian or Ukrainian.

The Media Research Center claims eight news stories, ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media, could have changed the election in favor of President Donald Trump. Over 80% of Joe Biden voters, according to the MRC, were unaware of at least one or more of the eight stories, and "36 percent of Biden voters were NOT aware of the evidence linking Joe Biden to corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter." And 13% of these voters, or almost 5% of Joe Biden's total voters, said that had they known of the Biden/China story, they would not have voted for Biden, enough to tip the vote in favor of Trump in several swing states that he lost.

When, near the end of the 2020 campaign, the New York Post published the Hunter Biden bombshell story about Hunter's laptop, linking Joe Biden to his son's dealings with the Ukrainian company Burisma, mainstream news practically closed rank to immediately dismiss the story as "Russian disinformation." Twitter even banned the New York Post from republishing its own story on the paper's Twitter account!

Some may be too young to know and others have forgotten how the mainstream media salvaged the 2008 presidential candidacy of then-Sen. Barack Obama. He was riding high, until the bombshell revelation of his racist, anti-white, anti-Semitic long-time pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Some of Wright's quotes:

About the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Wright said: "We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost."

About America's alleged systemic racism against Blacks: "The government gives [African Americans] the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."

About HIV/aids: "The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied." And: "We started the AIDS virus. We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty."

About Israel: "The state of Israel is an illegal, genocidal place. ... To equate Judaism with the state of Israel is to equate Christianity with [rapper] Flavor Flav."

About Jews: "Them Jews ain't going to let [Obama] talk to me. ... I told my baby daughter that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. ... Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing [by] the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel."

You get the idea (some don't)

Wright was big trouble for the Obama campaign. Wright had been Obama's pastor for over 20 years. He married Barack and Michelle Obama. He blessed the Obama's new home. Obama even named his 2006 memoir "The Audacity of Hope," after one of Wright's sermons. Obama, at first, clumsily defended his relationship with Wright, claiming ignorance about Wright's incendiary statements and that Wright was kind of, you know, like a harmless, crazy old uncle who spouts off during Thanksgiving dinner. But under pressure, Obama cut ties with Wright when the relationship nearly wrecked Obama's campaign.

So the mainstream news, except for Fox News, just largely avoided the story, until damaging videos of Wright's incendiary statements made it impossible for the media to maintain its "nothing to see here" position. What to do? Simple: Downplay it. Rationalize it. Change the subject.

Whatever 2020 election interference was committed by China, Russia and Iran pales in comparison to the election interference routinely engaged in by our left-wing media, an election interference that salvaged the candidacies of Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

As an English teacher, I feel compelled to point out that "drag" is a regular verb, and that the past participle of "drag" is "dragged".
Also, I disagree with your post. The media are, collectively, a bunch of jackals that would feed each other to the wolves if it gained them a few scraps.

And it's a good thing too: short of regulating the free press to death, it's the only way to keep 'em half way honest.

Those 90s teen movies were written by older people. I never dealt with that stuff either.

Relics I got to experience:
-Ditto Machines
-Film reels with a beep to change reels and a cassette track
-Overhead projectors
-Loud printers with paper margins
-Loud dialup modems, Prodigy, Usenet
-Duck N Cover drill
-Being allowed to make paper weapons and not have people freak out
-The TV cart

  This sounds a lot like you had issue with what the poster was posting on the weekend.
Again, rather than complaining about how the mods don't comb through every single post in thread, why not do something constructive and report the offending post? The report button is in the bottom right corner of each and every comment. Be part of the solution!

Anyway, now that you've directed my attention to the comment, I'll happily get rid of it because, yes, it's inappropriate. I woulda done it 8 days ago if you had mentioned or flagged it when you first read it.  :undecided:

Am I the only one that thinks it's weird that our usual far-right posters have been silent about the supposedly "insane radical socialist communist agenda" Biden laid out in his speech to the House and Senate on Thursday. 

I have not been a fan of Joe Biden, but frankly, as a public speaker, I thought he mostly did a fine job.  Snoozin' Cruz found him to be boring, but I thought he played well to the TV.  He wasn't angry or bombastic--which I think most Americans have tired of under Trump--he was intimate and personable.  He spoke to the TV not the (mostly empty)  auditorium, that is directly to the viewer.  It was pretty effective.

There were a few times he raised his voice, and that was--well, not always his best moments.  Except that any open-minded viewer realized that he cared about those issues.

And really, it is all about the issues, the policies he talked about.  He hit the nail on the head when he talked about how the folks who set up our free, mandatory education system and settled on 12 years, would absolutely not make the same decision today, knowing the significance and value of free school for 3, 4 and 5 year-olds, the jobs value of community college for so many. 

He talked a lot about jobs!  Sure, the vaccine is imperative to bring jobs back, but training, realistic wages, unions, are key to making jobs matter.  A healthy middle class, amiright?

The right wing can't talk about what he talked about, since it made so much sense, so all that's left to them is to say it "could be an email", it was boring, and the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!  Which is basically the BUT BENGAZI of 10 years ago. 

Biden didn't talk about, but should have, the underpinnings of the Eisenhower's 90+ percent tax rate for big corporations and the extremely wealthy.  There's a big proviso about moving stuff overseas, but the principle is the same:  those tax rates encouraged development, investment, bricks and mortar, which led to a massive wealth dividend, especially for the middle class. 

Neither Biden nor I is arguing for 90+ % tax rates, but it is absurd that working class and middle class Americans pay a higher tax rate than Amazon.  This is not about being punitive, its about paying their fair share.  Amazon benefits more than I do for well-maintained roads, since I only go to work myself--Amazon depends on good roads for all their workers to get to work.  Plus, distributing their goods, ON THOSE SAME ROADS.  They should pay an additional percentage--not just amount per se--PERCENTAGE for that.

I benefited from my free high school education, and I should pay a "tax" for that.  But, Amazon benefits from the "free" education of all their employees, and should pay not just for Jeff Bezos's high school education, but an appropriate portion of the cost of the education OF ALL THEIR EMPLOYEES!  Amazon should pay an additional percentage on top of Jeff Bezos's own percentage.

I agree that I should pay a fair share for police, firemen and other public servants to keep me safe, but Jeff Bezos and other rich people should pay proportionally more than I do, much more proportionally, since 1) they have more to lose than I do, so it matters more to them, and 2) their rich neighborhoods get more frequent policing than my poor-ass neighborhood does,  Again, not just they pay 7% property tax (which in itself is more than I pay dollar on dollar), they should pay a higher rate than I do.  Rich people should pay a higher percentage!

Today, we call this radical socialism, in the fifties we called it common sense.

Republicans ain't making a dent on Biden's platform because they only do well on social wedge issues: gay marriage, abortion, gun rights etc and Biden isn't following them down to their safe place.

A lot of Republicans love what Biden's offering but can't make it known publicly because they'll be attacked by the vocal Trump/QAnon wing of the party.

Bernie Sanders? Hell, Biden himself is a socialist agenda. Even if you disagree, you can't deny that it's true, following the speech on last Monday. "radical socialist communist agenda". "cigarette ban". "70% property tax". "BENGAHAZI"

These are all talking points that you'd expect from a Xi Jinpeng of the CCCP Chinese Communist party. and just look at Moon Jae In and the South Korean Democrats. The virushas infected everywhere, and I mean the virus of socialised agenda, not the Wuhan CCCP covid-19 virus. With salaries, they way they are, I wouldn't blame anyone from moving to China to escape it. ChinaAt least is no Alexandra Ocasio Cortez.

Too bad whoever decided to execute a search warrant on Rudy on the same day and steal a lot of Biden's thunder. Although the image of Guiliani being marched to his prison cell while the inmates chant Rudy! Rudy! brings a smile to my face.

Good points above--jobs, jobs, jobs. And not gig economy slave wage jobs, but good-paying jobs that you don't have to have an expensive college education, i.e., don't have to go into debt, to qualify for.

As Biden said, there's no reason batteries and other green tech have to be built in China rather than the US. And he's walking the walk, making sure SK can make batteries in Georgia.

Education needs to be expanded, but it also needs to be reformed, especially high school, where students other than the gifted at magnet schools mostly snooze like Cruz through. Teacher unions need to participate in this and show they can do more than protect teacher jobs.

Um, it isn't true. 

"Even if you disagree, you can't deny that it's true," -- that's what any sane person says "isn't true."  Period.  Because "disagree". 

Biden is NOT "a socialist agenda" he is a human being.  So, that also isn't true.

"70% property tax" isn't true.  Counties determine their property tax rate in the US, so "it isn't true."

"Not one peep from the liberal crowd" -- it isn't true.  Here's a "peep".  What you say isn't true.


Um, it isn't true.  There, I said it, it isn't true.  So when you said "you can deny it all you like but you can't say it isn't true", that isn't true.

Probably the same reason some anti-drug war liberals are okay with this- People are hypocrites.
The fact that you think you're making a good point here is kind of funny.

Yes, when you make a new law that means you will have made something ILLEGAL. Which means you have to enforce it. Of course that question should be asked and the illegal activity point addressed. You can't just brush that aside.
What question are you referring to?

You seem to be implying that there should be no laws. "Dogs run free, why can't we?"

Clicking on a thread title such as that constitutes in my mind one consenting to participate in an inane sh*tshow of a thread. This isn't like the thread is titled: "Geopolitical Realities: Huntington's 'Clash of Civilizations' vs. Fukuyama's 'End of History"

In thread's like this, arguing that the person is doing X, which is some sort of debate foul, is often a sign that either A) The person is trying to call you a knob because you're acting like a complete knob or B) The person is losing the argument and rather than acknowledge your points, they'll pull a process argument to try and save face. It can also be both at the same time. But yeah, "That's off-topic" is generally one of the weakest gripes because no one practices it fairly. When do you see this- "Hey person that agrees with me, that last post you wrote that was off-topic. You're always trying to derail." No one does that. No one polices themselves on it.

Here's an example:

"President Joe Biden is plunging into the next phase of his administration with the steady approval of a majority of Americans, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The survey shows Biden is buoyed in particular by the public's broad backing for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

In the fourth month of his presidency, Biden's overall approval rating sits at 63%. When it comes to the new Democratic president's handling of the pandemic, 71% of Americans approve, including 47% of Republicans."
