Another Senior Moment for Biden

This is the best the Democrats can do, apparently.

and he's done this twice now.

Wasn't hard to not vote for him, not hard at all. He was every bit as easy to not vote for as Herself. He's pretty much becoming the operational definition of non compos mentis. Sad state of affairs, innit?

The only way Joe Biden is “going to be like FDR” is that he will die in office and leave a shitty vice president as a replacement.

From Section 4 of the 25th Amandment:

"Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President."

I picked the wrong pandemic to quite sniffing glue.
If your car is running, I'm voting for it.

As someone who used to visit seniors in order to requalify them for services, I met hundreds of people over 60. My job was to see that seniors who needed some assistance would be able to stay in their homes. I had very few clients like Joe Biden.

When they were like Biden we would talk with family members about having someone live with them or place them in an environment where they could be watched. How could anybody vote for someone who has such obvious dementia?

Trump also shows signs of dementia, as does Pelosi and Feinstein. The three of them are always stumbling over their words, as if they can't find them. Trump also constantly repeats words.

elder abuse. He simply doesn't have all his marbles anymore, OMG it is cringe worthy. I can't stand more than about a minute or two.

Gee, what kind of country do we want to be, well one doesn't offer up the worst society has to offer to lead our country.

I would like a country that doesn't treat "economics" as a religion.

I would like a country that doesn't use coercion (fear of death) as the "guiding principal" to get people to work.

I want a country that doesn't rely on Malthusian idea's as it's foundation.

One that doesn't run on "capitalism", ie infinite growth on a finite planet. It's planetary suicide.

I want a Socialist Country God Dammit!

Oh wait, I figured it out, I'll become a Pastor of The Prosperity Gospel! Crazy

This "Prosperity Gospel" is a HUGE thing down here in Texas. OMFG!

Honestly, I think it will come down to firing squads in Central Park. But I'm just not sure who will be firing and who will be the targets...

@gjohnsit But who cares, if I can scam these morons to make a living, where's the problem? Right? I mean, if their dumb enough to give me money, because I tell them, "just claim your wealth, that god has set aside for you", where's the problem? Crazy

I need a luxury Leer Jet to be able to spread the Gospel across the US, so please, help me do God's work and pitch in everything you have...NOW, or God will smite you down!

Make perfect sense to me...

We've got a little paradox going on here: the critique of "infinite growth on a finite planet" is the principal Malthusian idea. Malthus merely demonstrated where the false religious beLIEf in limitless abundance breaks down and fails as the Ponzi scheme that it is.

Oh wait, I figured it out, I'll become a Pastor of The Prosperity Gospel!

With as many Texans (and other inhabitants of the Great Southern Wastes) living every day in De Nial of the basic truths of existence, I'm surprised we don't have more cases of, and deaths from, schistosomiasis in this country....... Bad

n.b.: gjohnsit asked below: "How does one 'claim it'?" Usually this involves 3 steps:

1: Pray for it;
2: BeLIEve without the slightest doubt that it will happen, including full banishment of all non-beLIEvers from one's life until it does; and
3: "Plant the Seed", i.e., hand over as much cash to the Prosperity Gospel Preachers as you can;

with #3 being the most important, of course.

Should this formula fail, you can always threaten large numbers of people that you will drop dead unless they part with the cash. (As Oral Roberts did in 1987!)

And verily I say unto thee again: Bad

sitting next to the President at a State of the Union, 'just to make sure', work?

Also, he doesn't have stutter. If you view/listen to a speech by George VI, that's a stutter. Joe is just searching for words, as opposed to being unable to get them out.

That is documented. But I have a friend who is a speech therapist knows what “stuttering tactics” look like and and they say that’s not what he is doing - it looks more like dementia.

A few words, certain letters, would hold me up, which was unpleasant when reading out loud as a child at school. I've never heard Biden do that. Are there old examples?

said at CPAC that Republicans needed a "president with enough "working digits to be able to hold a pen." As long as Biden can do that he will be allowed to hold the office. Being able to stand up and speak for 10 minutes would be a bonus. Harris can handle the day-to-day. If he gets too bad to even do that she can take over and they can appoint pretty much anyone they want as her VP.

"A species that is hurtling toward extinction has no business promoting slow incremental change." -- Caitlin Johnstone

Our neural nets start behaving unreliably. There are two major symptoms, inability to remember something and "short circuiting" where your memory returns the wrong, but similar, object. We all have some of this as our neural nets are not permanent, but Joe clearly is in memory degradation. This is permanent and will continue to get worse. He is close to the point where the Cabinet should vote to have him removed. Clearly the Democrats that put him up to this are cynical and love power more than this country. There is precedence, the Republicans did this to re-elect Reagan. There was more cause for that as the country was re-electing the same administration. How is Biden going to create a brand new administration? How could he possibly have the mental capacity to create a new functional branch of government? He doesn't and he can't. So who do we get, Harris, who couldn't get even 2% of the Democrat Party in the primary? What a cynical screw job of the American Public. If Biden does get elected I think that the resistance has to start before inauguration day. Once Trump is out of office there is no reason to support Biden and every reason to oppose him and the Democrat Party which did this to us.

Capitalism has always been the rule of the people by the oligarchs. You only have two choices, eliminate them or restrict their power.

as opposed to "He has dementia!", I will just concede he has a slight stutter, and early stage dementia, make everyone satisfied, since he just might be elected, and we need to accept all of the hideous possibilities coming soon.
Bottom line: He is fucked up, and we are fucked, according to some plan someone else laid.

the Oval Office occupant has been primarily in service to monied interests. When John Kennedy started acting like he was an actual Chief Executive Officer, that situation was quickly remedied. The main difference today is that there is very little effort being made to disguise the great democracy charade.

The end game is afoot, and it will very likely not include the pleasant illusion of democracy that we are so accustomed to.

Trump with "George", the MSM has already covered for him by pointing out that the interviewer's name was George. That still doesn't explain Jill obviously correcting Joe.

This MSM constant hiding of what is going on with Joe Biden is beyond scary!
