Bernie says we will not return to 'business as usual' if Biden is president
Video is cued to start where Bernie says that, but the whole video is worth a watch because Bernie lays out what he will do in the 1st 100 days of Biden's tenure if democrats retake the senate. Krystal asked him about the extreme republicans like John Kasich R, anti union/anti abortion extraordinaire. Bernie admits that is true, but goes into talking about how workers are hurting big time whilst big business gets richer and pays less taxes.
It all sounds great on paper. But with so many blue dawg dempublicans in both houses I don't see how that is going to happen. Not with the federal courts stacked to rule in favor of corporations as well as the Supreme Court that is also stacked with people that will rule in favor of big business against the people of the country, while now and then throwing us a social bone to keep us placified. Amy Coney Barrett's (ACB) confirmation hearing lasted all of 3 days with democrats keeping their dentures out so that they didn't actually bring up how Barrett's rulings the last 3 years have gone against workers. Were there things they could have done to keep republicans from rushing her through? Damn right there was. They didn't use them because they are not against her being on the court. Biden admitted during the 1st debate that he has no problems with ACB because she is a nice lady. Well then. 3 democrats voted to put Barrett on the federal court. One was Hillary's VP pick Tim Kaine and I have forgotten who the other 2 were. Manchin and Jones are my picks. I will try to find out who it was.
A few days before the hearing started 3 democrats were on the news talking about how Feinstein might not be up to the job to run the hearings. One of them was Dick Durbin who said that Feinstein was past her prime. This told me that they were going to place the blame of ACB being confirmed on her. Lo and behold that is exactly what happened. Feinstein thanked Lindsay Graham for the nicest confirmation hearing in history and then gave him a maskless hug that of course went viral. Kabuki performers performing their role.
I hope Bernie is successful in getting millions of desperate people relief. But after watching the Obama shitshow for 8 years and seeing how democrats have given Trump everything he has wanted I am not holding out hope. Hope went out the window in the wee early weeks of Obama. I have seen nothing that will bring hope back. YMMV.
BTW Obama the greatest finally went on to the campaign trail to give a speech to 18 cars yesterday. I have only seen tweets about it, but you know where to look for full coverage of the event. The charming scandal free ex president.......... yuck.
