why is it that every time i see this
all i want to do is this?
after what we have seen in the last 18 months, can you possibly trust these people to prioritize, manage, and allocate an infrastructure bill this large? (or, frankly, with anything more dangerous than a PB&J sandwich with the crust cut off?)
could it possibly be anything but an out of control gravy train and crony capitalist debacle?
it’s clear they are not even trying to tell the truth.
they are not truthful people.
this authoritarian/planned economy/top down diktat disease is clearly highly contagious.
it’s also desperately lethal to those that get severe cases.
take precautions now.
an ounce of prevention can shovel back a ton of manure.
or did you need some more “temporary programs” to give you a reminder?
trusting control of the economy, its allocations, its price signals, and its priorities to a group “experts” has never worked and will never work.
even if they had your best interests at heart and the noblest of all possible intents, they do not have the information to get this right.
and let’s face it, these are not exactly a gang of noble altruists seeking the common good, are they?
this is not a new plan to a new way forward.
this is and old plan, tried many times before and that has failed. every. single. time.
it’s the swansong grift of a gerontocracy of grifters to buy fascist control of we the people with our own money and to gild their retirement rafts like so many egyptian pharaohs.
do you really want to make this bet again and trust the same people who just broke the world to “build it back better”?
some things, you really want to learn from history, not from doing…
If there was the slightest thing I could do about any of it, I'd have done it decades ago.
I vote. Speak out. Defy unlawful mandates. Educate myself and offer to educate others.
I have absolutely no power or influence over this in any legal manner.
This is clearly too down WEF playbook. Build Back Better is another way or saying Great Reset. I guess the objective from my perch is to destroy western societies first and then build back better in the image of the elites. Red states can’t fall. If they do, we will all be living in an Orwellian dystopia
It starts with a lie and then builds from there. No one elected this demented, pedophilic, pathological, ice cream-eating, China indebted clown to anything.
They should really be wearing ski masks or nylon stockings over the face during a heist.
"...when the Marxists say, 'Well, that wasn’t real Marxism', what it really means, and I thought about this for a long time, it’s the most arrogant possible statement anyone could ever make.
It means, 'If I would have been in Stalin’s position, I would have ushered in the damn utopia instead of the genocidal massacres. Because, I understand the doctrine of Marxism and everything about me is good.'
Well, think again sunshine! You don’t understand it. You don’t understand it, and you are not that good. And, if the power was in your hands, assuming you had the competence, which you don’t, you wouldn’t have done any better, and even if you had, there would have been someone else waiting right behind you to shoot you the first time you actually tried to do anything good. And that is what happened to all the old guard who ran the damn Revolution. Stalin rounded them all up and shot them, along with their families and millions of other people.
So, even if you do happen to be that Avatar of moral purity that you claim implicitly, the probability that you’d act out your goodness in relationship to those possessed by your ideology is zero."
—Jordan Peterson on the "it wasn't real communism" argument
Not really sure what more I can do. As a physician I have tried to speak with people locally other physicians etc. and even the ones that seem two see what I am saying will not speak out. It’s like they vaccinated and now they don’t want to admit they were wrong.
Good news: This insanity will end very soon and humanity will establish a stable equilibrium with nature that will persist for millenia
Bad news: We have to go through absolute hell first
humpty dumpty said "words mean exactly what i say they mean"......
"bi partisan" part of the infrastructure bill is to link it to the 3.5T 'destroy american capitalism' reconciliation (flim flam names) bill.
3.5t more federal (on top of $5t squandered on dumping trump lock downs) squandering worsened by expropriative tax increase (that will not raise a fraction of the money they are wasting) is designed to destroy the private sector, make the middle class poor and sow totalitarian liberalism, aka a soviet style with massive election fraud.
who accepts the fake ballots and counts the votes......
the only thing saving the us dollar is euro socialism, and xi's central planning, are so broke it makes the us' totalitrian liberalism seem worth lending to.
I'm sure that giving subsidies...er I mean welfare....to journalists in this infrastructure bill will lead to much higher journalism. Afterall, it isn't like if you subsidize something you get more of it.
Hey bad cat! I know you visit Park City occasionally. If you are so inclined, the Utah legislature is having a public meeting to discuss the federal mandates October 4th. It will also be available online, but I think having as many citizens as possible writing the elected officials will help get our message across.
Well put!! I have a hypothesis that a lot of the labor force has decided to go under ground. In a traditional W-2 job, compensation can be garnished. If someone has not paid their rent for 18 months, and/or they are anticipating judgements to be filed against themselves in a collection effort, then they will seek cash employment in an effort to delay and hinder collection. Going to be hard to build back anything.
"gerontocracy of grifters" :)
Yes...Biden, Pelosi, etc., are fossils...but the build back better crowd is not.
Where...who...does this messaging come from? Does anyone really believe this is a global game of copycat?
How in the hell can the dystopian madness going on be called socialism? Its straight up collusion of corrupt capitalists and corrupt politicians ie fascism.
"Everyone else did it the wrong way."
Calling it the Build Back Better bill was really an extra kick in the nuts because they know they can.
I would add "incompetent." A crew of geriatric, mendacious, liars with exactly zero interest in the welfare of the people they rule over. Incompetence can go a long way toward mitigating the long terms costs of this project, but, of course, the short term costs willbe staggering.
Praying those bills fail.
I wrote this In November 2020. (Hint: the headline has the word "scream" in it).
You're lucky all you want to do is march. I just want to 🤮
May the “gotten hurt” part come soon! In the meantime, sharpen claws.
Texas lawyer Sidney Powell is doing some suing and getting the word out about the COVID fascists. EL GATO you have the best kitty photo jibes!! The laughter keeps me from going crazy.
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN
well said--and loved the visuals!!! thanks for the moment of sanity!
Alright, Washington is officially more depressing and morbid than a Gantz battle at this point.
