Except, family farmers got squat compared to the corporate agribusinesses, China-owned and Brazilian-owned meat packing houses that got bail-outs in the millions. The big corporate owned businesses got along just fine, while family farms and dairies went belly-up in the highest numbers ever seen.
The perfect image of our new administration…
I liked Kamala from the start. I’m looking forward to voting to make her 47.
Part of our problem is the virus (republicans) that is preventing a clean boot.
And it’s going to be uphill all the way.
Portraying him as a dog is incorrect because dogs are faithful and reliable. He should be characterized as a long-tailed rat.
Some are worse. Some would destroy our Constitution. They must be held accountable.
It is a repeat of the familiar pattern: Democrats come in to office after republicans run up huge deficits with tax cuts to corporations and the rich (“tax cuts pay for themselves”) trash the economy and drive the country into the ditch. Democrats dig the country out of the hole, start paving streets and planting trees, try to improve lives for ordinary workers and children, with republicans going crazy with accusations of socialism and communism (surely they’ve never read the dictionary).
Republicans get elected again, then trash the country again, this time with the worst pandemic in a century. The republicans have no plan on how to fix it, their president is so busy with golf, he can’t spare time to take advice from experts (he resents anyone who knows more than him, which is just about everybody), so the republicans try to destroy our government by telling the Big Lie (without evidence) that the election was stolen, and staging a coup attempt by rioting in the capitol. And the day the new president is sworn in, they start trying to prevent the program to fix the mess they created. They still offer no solutions, only obstruction. Again, they don’t care about the ordinary people. And, they want the people who shouted the Big Lie, and incited the insurrection to be excused without even having to apologize for what they did.
And Mitch McConnell, who was the majority leader who declared that nothing passed by the House under the democrats, would get by him, and pretty much nothing did, wants democrats to agree to let him be the gatekeeper for the senate again under a power sharing agreement.
He wants to prevent the Biden agenda from being passed so people continue to suffer, so they can take another run at getting control of the Congress again in two years. I’m waiting to see what happens.
And we need those people. We need their babies to grow up to work and pay taxes to support social security and provide care workers to take care of the boomers who are in their declining years. Our kids are not having enough kids.
More than 70 Million voters were fooled. He got more votes than any other presidential candidate, ever. Biden just got more. Yes, we got lucky, but it was also the result of a lot of people who put their time and money and effort into getting people to vote. And mail in voting helped those who wouldn’t/couldn’t stand in long lines in bad weather.
