Joe Claims Lumber Company Offered Him His First Job

 

While in Idaho for some reason (possibly to show America that he is not an animatronic), Joe Biden, Hero of Terrorist Networks, made it known that his first job offer came from Boise Cascade, for decades a major lumber company supplying lumber for construction throughout the United States. The company responded, however, that it has no record of that being true. This was, no doubt before Mr. Biden made a living traversing the country driving 18-wheel big rigs. Breaker, breaker…hey America-good buddy: Insist on the cognitive test now before more people get hurt and killed.

    Yup, I can see him kicking back with a Molson’s after a hard day of tree cutting.

    Wasn’t he a miner? I thought he was a miner?

    I think Boise Cascade used to sell printer and copier paper. Maybe he’s remembering seeing the Boise Cascade name on the paper boxes in the Delaware law office in which he apparently did have his first job (courtesy of connections via his father)? Or earlier he worked part-time as a stock boy in an office supply store that sold Boise Cascade paper?

    Lucky for Biden, he was able to track down Cornpop.

    Wonder why they would lie?  Or why the NY Post would bother checking?  Guess they are racist.

    I hope that the officer carrying the nuclear football is kept as far away from Joe Biden as humanely possible, like at least 100 miles away from Biden at any given moment. The neurons are looking for a landing strip that disappeared decades ago.

    He was worried about Trump pulling out of Afghanistan suddenly Where was he when Biden ordered the latest fiasco? I guess he was otherwise engaged in trying to comprehend “white rage” and worried about “right wing terrorists.”

    “Small Town Joe” was born into wealth, mom and dad sent him to a good college where he threw the sportsball around, graduated near the bottom of his class, and went straight into politics, ready to tell the rest of the world what to do at age 29. He never worked a day in his life.

    Even Obama at least spent one year in a private law firm before he realized work was too hard for his limp wrists. Joe is the worst of the worst.

    The next thing you’re going to tell me is that he plagiarized some of his speeches.

    LOL.  I know there are those who think that–somewhere inside his cavernous noggin–a perfectly rational and capable-of-complex-thought Joe Biden is carrying out a well-reasoned and evil plan to fundamentally transform the United States.

    Newsflash:  That was the old Joe Biden.  He’s always been a loathsome individual, a liar, a conniver and a greedy SOB out to feather his own nest.

    The new Joe Biden is just demented, and no-one on his staff has a clue what he’s going to say or do next.  Anyone who doubts that only has to look at how, every chance they get, and when it will effectively silence him, his staff pulls the microphone plug on his ramblings when they’re afraid he’s going off-script.

    While Mr. She was still able to get around fairly well, and before COVID made such excursions very difficult, we’d go out together on my shopping expeditions.  As he’d done all his life, he’d chat to the sales people and the checkout people, finding, in his last years, conversation with strangers easier than it was with his own family, probably because strangers didn’t have any real knowledge about his life and simply took everything he said at face value. (A hard lesson which I think all carers of those with dementia have to learn to do at some point; I know I did.)   And so I listened to him tell–without malicious intent at all–all sorts of whoppers with a straight face and entirely believably, to an audience who took them as gospel and responded in kind.  It gave him pleasure and he felt part of society; I couldn’t see any harm–we were never going to see these people again–and correcting him and embarrassing him publicly would serve no useful purpose.  I used to console myself by recognizing the nuggets of truth in what he was saying (usually there were one or two), and trying to figure out the mental processes that had turned them into the tale he was spinning at the time.

    That is exactly what I see Joe Biden doing when he’s off-script.  Judging his mental capacity and ability to do his job what appear to be the workings of his mind when he’s reading–however badly–off a teleprompter or in the leaked transcripts from phone calls with foreign leaders which may be almost as well-scripted, and the words and thoughts of someone else, is deceptive.  His capability should be judged solely on how he handles himself when he’s flying solo and making it up (quite literally) as he goes along.

    It’s a disgusting spectacle, that of the Biden family allowing this hollow shell of a man to be used as a tool to oust Donald Trump and burnish their own credentials, and of the Democrat party using a doddering old fool as a ventriloquist’s dummy to further their own ends.  My opinion of Joe Biden is low enough that there’s a considerable amount of “he deserves whatever he gets” in it, but it’s a shame so many others have to bear the brunt and pay the price of this national disgrace.

    I would think that very few companies would have records of who applied for — but didn’t take — a job 50+ years ago.  The fact that Boise Cascade can’t back up his story is not proof that it is false.  What I find remarkable about Biden’s story is that he was married before ever holding a job! I just imagine the conversation this girl had with her parents. 

    So darling, this fiance of yours, what does he do for a living? 

      Oh, well, he doesn’t have a job yet. 

    Yes, I understand he doesn’t have a career yet, but certainly he’s done some sort of at least part-time work, right?  Worked at a grocery store, a restaurant, a bowling alley, something right?  Please tell me you aren’t marrying a bum.

    That’s our “Middle Class Joe” as he claims many senators called him.  He also claims many people call him “Lunch Bucket Joe.”  The question at this point is, does he know he’s full of it or does he believe it himself.

    Is that Middle Class or mediocre?

    I recently read Clarence Thomas’s 2007 autobiography, “My Grandfather’s Son.”  It was recommended by someone on Ricochet, but as usual, I don’t remember who.

    Joe Biden gets some harsh treatment in that book as a lying, duplicitous sleazeball, though that is my phrase and not Thomas’s.

    Off-topic I know, but I’m surprised that book isn’t a prerequisite for Ricochet membership.

    Clarence Thomas has good reason to think that about Joe Biden. Joe Biden led the “high tech lynching” of the uppity black man who dared not to conform to his proper station in life.

    I believe this is what is going on with Biden as well.  I work with Alzheimer’s and dementia patients (in a non-medical capacity) and believe me, they 100% believe the tale they are telling you at the time.  They don’t even know they are lying.  I think pre-dementia Biden was a gratuitous liar, but honestly, at his point, I don’t think he is responsible for his own lies because, based on my experience with dementia sufferers, he doesn’t even know he’s lying.   This makes him the perfect fall guy when some leftist agenda item that he is propped up to enact goes terribly wrong.  He’s not responsible (thank you 25th Amendment) and neither is anyone else.

    My father was a serial liar.   The funny thing about them is that they all believe the lie on order to sell it.  Most of them are pretty sharp customers in their prime.  The problem is that as time goes by they have a harder time keeping the lies straight and a harder time selling the lies.
