Ridiculing somebody for speech gaffs or for being old, regardless of your politics, is as low as you can go. I make gaffs and look like a foolish old man who is too confused to be allowed in public at times, but my mind is still the same and my awareness only appears lacking.

He never suggested ingesting bleach unlike his moronic nonce predecessor.

@izzythepush,
Nor has he spent his entire presidency licking Putin's arse like his traitorous predecessor.

@edgarblythe,
So? I believe in flat earth, but I'm also sensible enough to know that our beloved president isn't very beloved at all.

Only an idiot thinks that one opinion is representative of an entire outlook.

And only an idiot blindly accepts or rejects opinions without observation.

Do you have any proof the moon landing WASN'T faked? No? Then you are worse than the person who feels that way and can tell you that it was faked because this reason, this reason, and this reason.

Proof is the different between a "crazy" person who hapoens to be correct, and a "normal" person who has nothing even resembling proof but takes the word of other people for it.

@edgarblythe,
Ummm, it isn't about ridicule.

Biden is effectively a confused and tired old man. What he should be doing is taking a nap, and staying out of strong political decisions. If he were to do this, his presidency would basically have no bumps in it, and even conservatives would respect him.

But instead, he is not only senile, he is dangerously arrogant, behaving much like a father of a trans girl who "knows" his child is really a boy, and pushes and pushes, knowing that if they just push hard enough, they will break down that illusion. Actually? The trans girl runs away, ends up homeless, gets mixed up in prostitution, and winds up dead when one of her clients can't deal with her man parts.

You think I'm exaggerating, but this is exactly what this electric car initiative is like. He "knows" that electric cars are what is best, so despite the fact that most people wouldn't be able to afford the cost of one (not only that, somehow the price of all new cars was bumped up, as we wound up paying $11,ooo for a new car), despite the enormous gas prices we have to suffer, despite the fact that electric cars will literally result in the collapse of gas stations as there is no possible way that people can wait 10 hours for their turn at the pump, and despite that people know this is a disaster of an idea, his idiot supporters think his **** is made of gold.

Just as the father of a trans girl must eventually realize that it's better to have a trans girl than a dead boy (they will not always get things right but they aren't going to be heavy handed anymore), a good president who wants people to switch to electric ought first to actually do the research about charge times, work with auto manufacturers to offer bonuses to people to make more efficient EVs, rather than penalizing gas stations and penalizing gas car owns and penalizing everyone else hoping to force it down everyone's throat. If you want the market to change, you must leave the market open to competition, and until EVs are actually competitive and not an environmental disaster (*ahem* rare earth runoff, high price batteries, strip mining for components) you need to accept that some people will not switch until it makes sense.

@izzythepush,
Actually, he suggested drinking a type of quinine, which you can get from a gin and tonic. In fact, this whole COVID scare, the solution was to calmly drink gin and tonic, and wait for the crazies to die off. But nope, the crazies decided to run government.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chloroquine
(Chloroquine is basically quinine. Drink quinine, and you'll be fine)

Instead of drinking tonic water, liberals discredited him by drinking other chlorine substances like bleach or fish tank cleaner.
https://www.westernjournal.com/media-tried-kill-chloroquine-fish-tank-cleaner-story-now-docs-say-effective-treatment/
Uhhh you fail chemistry forever, and no that isn't what he said. I know chloroquine sounds like chlorine to someone who isn't paying attention, but that's the thing. I have attention deficit, and even I noticed an extra syllable or so.

He also said to get plenty of vitamin D from sunlight, but "experts" said to stay indoors. I think that was the game plan, stay indoors while we take over, die of malnutrition and lack of sunlight.

And he wasn't "licking Putin's ass". From day one, libs (like you, actually) were licking China's ass, following the Russia hacking narrative. He has a Russian wife, so he must be a Russian spy. He had a phone conversation with Putin (and not a particularly successful one), this must be treason. He doesn't want the US to be a pawn of globalist China, he must be an enemy of hiow the US should be.

I hesitated to even bother posting on such a juvenile thread but amidst the insults, memes, and lies it might be useful to use a more mature approach to assessing Biden's efforts and effectiveness, i.e. actual political analysis instead of name-calling and gossip.

Quote:
With the recent Supreme Court decisions gutting federal enforcement of civil rights and business regulation and the public hearings of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol, economic news has been pushed out of the center of public conversation. That’s a shame for two reasons.

First, Democratic president Joe Biden appears to be centering his presidency around the idea of rebuilding the middle class through government investment in ordinary Americans. This is a major shift—a sea change—from the past 40 years of Republican policy saying that the economy would prosper if only the government slashed taxes and regulation, leaving more money and power in the hands of business leaders, those “makers” who would invest in new industries and provide more jobs. Watching the effect of his policies is a window into what works and what doesn’t.

Second, the Republicans are counting on anger over inflation, shortages, and gas prices to win control over the House of Representatives and the Senate in the fall elections. It’s worth paying attention to what’s really going on with those issues, as well as to what policies the Democrats and the Republicans are putting on the table to address them.

On the first point: Biden has focused on rebuilding the American middle class that has been so terribly hollowed out in the past 40 years. While he appears to be driven by his belief in the dignity of all Americans and their right to be able to make ends meet with a decent job, historians will tell you that in the U.S., race and gender tensions are significantly lower when income and wealth are more evenly distributed than when a few people at the top of the economic ladder control most of the nation’s capital. The rise of lynching in the U.S. in the late 1880s, just as trusts came to monopolize the economy, was not a coincidence.

The Republican economic promise since Reagan has been that cutting regulation and taxes would create a healthy economy in which everyone who is willing to work can thrive. But political commentator Thom Hartmann marshaled the statistics in a crystal clear Twitter thread a week ago, revealing just how badly that argument has failed.

Hartmann noted that after World War II, “the nation had hummed along for 40 years on a top income tax bracket of 91% and a corporate income tax that topped out around 50%.” Business was growing faster than at any other previous time, and businessmen stayed out of politics. The country had great public schools, research laboratories, trade schools, airports, interstate highways, and small businesses, as well as unions that protected America’s workers.

The election of Ronald Reagan meant radical tax cuts (from a top marginal rate of 74% in 1980 to the 27% it is today), business deregulation, and the gutting of social safety nets. Forty-two years later, Hartmann notes, more than $50 trillion has been transferred from the bottom 90% to the top 1%. In 1980, 60% of us were in the middle class; now fewer than half of us are. Republicans promised that permitting business concentration would lead to innovation and opportunity; instead, we have seen an end to competition, along with price gouging and profiteering from the giant companies that choke out small business. Stock buybacks were supposed to mean that senior executives would care more about the future of their companies, but instead they have become a means for them to pocket cash.


Since the beginning of his term, Biden has tried to take on the concentration of wealth and power among a few elites. Biden’s investment in the U.S. economy through the American Rescue Plan and the bipartisan infrastructure bill has produced significant results. On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the nonfarm job numbers for June, which show that employment continues to rise. The economy added 372,000 jobs in June, mostly in “professional and business services, leisure and hospitality, and health care.” We are still 524,000 jobs down from February 2020, before the pandemic. Unemployment remains at 3.6%, with about 5.9 million folks unemployed.

There were some interesting trends in the data. There are 880,000 more jobs in business, computer design, administration, and research than there were in February 2020. There are 260,000 more jobs in outpatient health care now than in February 2020, but hospitals have lost 57,000 workers, and nursing and residential care have lost 379,000. Leisure and hospitality—restaurants, for example—have lost a whopping 1.3 million jobs, or 7.8% of their workers, since February 2020 (although the sector is growing again).

But look at this: transportation and warehousing have grown fast, with 759,000 more jobs than in February 2020. Manufacturing is back to where it was in February 2020, suggesting that President Joe Biden’s emphasis on repairing supply chains is paying off.

And in the past year, wages have gone up 5.1%. That, along with increased pressure for unionization, suggests workers have more power than they did before the pandemic.

This data suggests that people are moving away from work in restaurants, leisure, and nursing—all professions hit terribly hard during the pandemic—and toward transportation and office work. The increase in wages reflects more bargaining power on the part of employees. All of this is hardly rocket science, I know, but it does suggest that the economy is reorganizing at least temporarily into new forms since the pandemic.

This is of interest as we try to figure out what’s going on with inflation, which is currently afflicting not just the U.S. but the rest of the world as well. That story tells us something about the success of the Republican program Hartmann identified.

One of the reasons for inflation has been the concentration of corporate power since the 1980s. A June report by three economists for the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston noted that “[t]he US economy is at least 50 percent more concentrated today than it was in 2005,” and that such concentration amplifies the degree to which companies pass price hikes onto consumers as businesses overcompensate for rising production costs. In the oil industry, the report notes, as prices have spiked, companies have posted jaw-dropping profits.

The price of gasoline has been coming down from its crazy high for the past 25 days. In the past two weeks, the average price of gas has dropped 19 cents a gallon, and as the price of crude oil continues to fall, consumers can expect to see prices continue to fall as well, although they fall more slowly than they rise in a phenomenon researchers call “rocket and feathers.” That term refers to the fact that gas prices go up like a rocket along with the cost of crude oil but fall more slowly as the cost of crude oil comes down, in part because consumers are so happy to see any relief at the pump that they don’t shop around to drive prices lower.

One of the reasons for the crazy highs is speculation by largely unregulated energy traders that creates massive volatility in prices. Lack of regulation is in the news today in another industry, too, as journalists from media organizations including the Guardian, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, and the Washington Post revealed how Uber evaded regulators by using a “kill switch” that shut down regulators’ access to the files they needed to monitor the company.

There is a coming showdown between the Democrats’ approach to the economy and the old Republican approach. Biden and the Democrats are trying to pass a $52 billion U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (USICA) that would invest in U.S. science and technology to boost American industry, support research, and fund the manufacture of semiconductor chips to free the U.S. from relying on Chinese products. But Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has vowed to kill the measure unless the Democrats back off on a budget package that would fund Medicare by placing a 3.8% tax on income “pass throughs” taken by individuals making more than $400,000 a year and would allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices, significantly lowering costs to consumers.
