Orwellian Boondoggles in Congress. Again.
The nation’s oldest polling company, Gallup, periodically tests Americans’ confidence in our institutions. On July 5, they published their latest. I bet the numbers won’t surprise you. While Americans continue to hold small businesses, our military, and the police in high esteem, Congress is ranked dead last.
They are evil.
Are these the same Democrats who keep re-electing the Democrats they claim to… disapprove of?
The 15% corporate tax will result in some combination of higher prices for consumers and layoffs for employees, with layoffs being more likely demand side for non core items are soft now, so the most predictable outcome for this the destruction of the one remaining bright spot in the economy. Also I think the last time we tried to tax our way out of a recession it didn’t turn out so well.
On a brighter note because this is likely to lead to a full scale depression, people will start to want the 2020 election to have been fraudulent so we may get meaningful voting reform.
It took Joe Biden for someone to poll below Jar Jar Binks.
Meh. They probably think congressional Democrats are too right-wing. Their disapproval doesn’t mean they’re likely to vote Republican. At most, some of the disillusioned Democrat voters may not bother to vote unless a socialist runs in their district or something.
I disapprove of a lot of the Republicans in Congress — doesn’t mean I’d vote for a Democrat.
Is it’s over for the United States? We won’t know it until November when democrats will barely win control of the house and Senate, but they will probably win it. It’ll be close so folks will think it was more or less fair. By the time we vote in 2024, the United States will not be capable of defending itself from the Chinese especially with the Democrat who will be elected President. After the November election Republican controlled states and pieces of states need to act. They don’t have to declare independence just stop paying federal taxes to Washington. They’ll need to defend our borders with the National Guard from all independent states and begin a military to support them, taking folks whose bases remain in free states who join, younger folks, so retirement won’t be a burden. Illegals already here or who continue to slip in will be sent to Washington, and states who support Washington. Crazy? Yes, but those who choose to understand will know in November, then the question is what to do. Folks do not understand that even were it not for the Chinese who will attempt to replace us peacefully with rot rather than force, a top down United States is not capable of sustaining the largest most complex economy in history so it will deteriorate. The rich will narrow as they scramble with each other while impoverishing the majority. It’s not as if we didn’t have all human history to give us insights on where we’re headed.
From the article:
“In terms of irritating, incompetent creatures who get in the way of everything we want to see, most Americans overwhelmingly prefer Jar Jar Binks to the United States Congress.”
I think the Dems just found Biden’s replacement for 2024 . . .
Would it be possible that some are misinformed instead of evil?
Democratic politicians know their “solutions” don’t work and hurt the poor and do it anyway. They also know that a great many of their policies weaken America while strengthening our enemies overseas. Not only do they do anyway. Many personally profit from the practice including that senile old man you saw fit to inflict on us. They engage in policies designed to promote abortion up until the point of birth, including advocating for the ancient practice of exposure in cases to kill babies. If children are born they try to use the power of the state to convince them to mutilate their bodies in service to the latest fad of “gender affirming care”. Additionally they try to use the media and misrepresentation to stir racial tensions in the US. Face it Gary evil is being kind to these folks.
Evil is evil.
There is no excuse to engage in policies that have failed in the past. Thr outcomes are known. To ignore the facts when the facts are easy to get.
No, what is going on is Pride. They think they know better. It is the first sin.
It is evil.
Of course, not being able to see evil for what it is, or be willing to call it out, explains a lot.
