Waking Back Biden’s Philadelphia Speech

Appararently, if you took Biden’s Philadelphia speech seriously, and thought, perhaps, you were hearing a totalitarian doctrine scripted by his Neocon handlers and advisors, then you missed the practical joke.

If you saw Biden’s lips reading the telepromptor and it sounded like a right-wing Democratic President delivering threats to silence or criminalize dissenters and truthtellers, who object to the Presidential empowerment of neoliberal economic policies, or international war-mongering provocations against nuclear enabled superpowers — well, you missed the clever trick.

Enter desk-bound journalist, David Frum, who has jotted a few paragraphs at the Atlantic, that completely explain how Biden’s speech wasn’t what you thought it was. Biden’s speech, according to Frum, was actually an elaborate sting operation. It was designed to trap Donald Trump into an angry response — and at the same time prove to the world that he is an important member of the Republican Party!

I have a question

I could really be wrong; I haven't found the detail clarified. What in the "Biden's student debt relief" will happen if the 5% of your income payment option is less than needed to lower your principle or worse your accrued interest? People could live to be 80 and die owing more than they borrowed when they were 18. Will children inherit the debt? (btw, my father was crippled in a workplace accident.

So, this is the day, which had to come - I am hysterical

I feel surveilled by imaginary very bad guys and therefore say good bye to you all. Nazis and Kommies are on the rise and I don"t like it one bit. They scare the shit out of me.

JtC and Joe, please, please safeguard the content of the c99p site as a whole, but specifically Joe"s archives, Lookouts Weekly watches and whatever Gjohnsit wrote, of which I don"t understand much, just believe they are good. Thouhg I disagree with him over the IMF's role. But heh that's ok, isn"t it?
