The Democrats Have lost their minds: New Green Deal

Rebuild every single building in the U.S.

Will end all traditional forms of energy in the next ten years.

The Green New Deal is “a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect
of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to
achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.”

Plans to ban nuclear energy within 10 years if possible.

Build trains across oceans and end all air travel!

Don’t invest in new technology of Carbon Capture and Storage, just plant trees instead!

Mandates all new jobs be unionized.

No need to read all about it, that’s just utter nonsense. For their own sakes, I hope the democrats stop the extremism before next year’s elections... they will lose their hats.

Typical political trick . . . . . . .

Or

Have McConnell tell Pelosi that if she passes it as is, he will put it up for a vote
and let the Dem's show everyone what nutters they are, the Republicans all
vote against it and show everyone who the adults are, then beat the Dem's
over the head with it next election.

Do you know how many Democrat Presidential candidates endorsed it?
(It was at least 7 so far) and others even cosponsored it.

It's a perfect opportunity for the GOP so they won't do it because they
suck at politics.

2tallbill becomes Nostradamus. Although I predict that McConnell doesn't
have the eggs to actually follow through with it.


Mitch McConnell is going to force the Senate to vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate would vote
on the "Green New Deal" introduced by Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., and Rep.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., last week.

The proposal, which is not expected to pass the GOP-dominated upper chamber, could
force some Democrats to make a politically awkward calculation. Ocasio-Cortez welcomed McConnell's maneuver, saying that he and the GOP are "terrified of this winning vision of
a just and prosperous future."

The lefties are going to lose their minds for several days. They
will call Trump a tyrant, a dictator and it will go on and on each
will try to one up the other calling him more and more egregious
things.

President Barack Obama's administration racked up nearly as much debt in eight years than in the entire 232-year history of the country before he took office. He entered with $10.6 trillion in total debt and left with the country owing $19.9 trillion. That's an average tab of $1.16 trillion a year.

Now, that's change we can believe in.   (:) :duh:    :biggrin:  :money:


Quote
The most recent projections from the Congressional Budget Office indicate that debt held by the public will rise to 93 percent of GDP in the next 10 years, or the highest since just after the end of World War II. From there, the level is expected to hit 150 percent by 2049, which is well above what economists consider a sustainable level.

Well, I will not likely be around for the tri-centennial.  Good luck to those who will be.    :scared0005:

Trump and laws which regulate emergencies
« Reply #11169 on: February 15, 2019, 04:54:54 PM »
For those who want to know the laws associated with the President declaring an Emergency
here are some links that spell out the rule of law. NOTE: There are additional laws, these
aren't all inclusive, but these links should give you the basics.

For those who like to make it up as they go should ignore those links.

I agree 100%

https://news.yahoo.com/trent-lott-thinks-joe-biden-strongest-democratic-presidential-candidate-100015676.html

I agree too, but don't you think they are going to nominate a left wing socialist kook?
Joe Lieberman would be an excellent democratic candidate but his party left him behind. 

Lott liked Kasich in 2016 who was just a carbon copy of Jeb without all the money
both would have lost against Hillary.

The United States is a weird place where turkey regularly vote for Christmas (Thanksgiving). The theme running through the Democrat potential candidate plans, and the plans of their chosen mouthpieces, is all about free stuff. Across the various plans and proposals there's something for pretty much everyone in the voting masses and so, the turkeys will give support to the turkey farmers.

Of course, all this stuff must be paid for, partly in money but also in terms of the freedoms that you lot claim to revere. This is a process that has been going on for many years and seems to only be accelerating.

Seems to me that the Democrats have learned from the Trump campaign in this regard and doubled down. We can also see the manner in which, as happened in the last election, interest groups are being set up and then pitted against each other in a divisive process. Of course, while the Russians got the blame, we are now seeing the strategy manifesting itself in an overt manner and so we can kinda guess who was really pulling the levers during the last election.

My take is that the programs that Trump offered were offered genuinely by a man who believes they are valid and good for the country - not simply from a love for power. The Democrats are doing what TonyBlair did in his battle to become prime minister: offer people free stuff that they are told they want in order that the Labour Party got elected with Blair as PM. There wasn't an ounce of conviction in the Labour manifesto. There's not an ounce of conviction coming from the Democrats here - just a lust for power. This will be another step toward the end of the United States as the country I knew when I was growing up.

Attorney General William Barr today told Congress that there was spying on the Trump campaign during the Presidential election of 2016 and that he intends to investigate whether or not it was justified. 

While Trump said some foolish things during the campaign it’s exceptionally clear for those who can read, can engage in real critical thinking and who are sane and rational (this excludes Moby and millions like him) that the spying which was ordered against Trump was not justified and furthermore that the whole “Russian collusion” charade was a misguided attempt to thwart the will of the people who elected Trump.

Trump has not only prevailed he’s shown Americans that they elected the right man for the job* and I expect him to win 2020 in a landslide. Meanwhile the Democrats aren’t going to be too happy as it’s going to be their turn to come under the scrutiny of an AG and then an independent counsel, Providence willing.
