Big Win For Joe

With the senate vote on the Climate Change Bill it has been another big win for Joe Biden this week.. It’s been stated that the House will vote on Friday, and that vote is assured. Leaf, here I come! Who cannot consider purchasing an EV with these kind of incentives. Have you driven an EV? It is sublime…………

Think I’ll go blue with next car. I want to match my politics.

Listening to the pundits and polls over the weekend news feeds I hear repeatedly the Dems are going to loose their majority mid-term. They speak of Biden’s low approval numbers, inflation, and this, and that rhetoric but abortion is the issue. This is being swept under the carpet and not too fast boys, have a little secret tale to tell.

Remember her?

In another life while an administrator for the NYS Department of Corrections, I visited prisons throughout the State. It was during this time that Hill was running for the Senate. Most of the gals who work for the prison system are married to correction officers. On prison visit after prison visit I heard the same “secret” from these women. “My husband doesn’t know it, but I’m voting for her.” She won big in this election.

Women can be very secretive when needed, but one thing is certain…

They get the job done.

CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and Siena can poll all they want, but this is the issue on the ballot this year. Prior to Kansas voting the polls were 46 to 47% in favor of this issue. End vote: it won by almost 20 percent.

Numbers don’t lie.

Been A Week..

However, it seems every week is quite a week with the world the way it is..

  • Brittany Griner will probably be sentenced to 10 years
  • Many tr stolen election candidates won their primaries.
  • Taiwan fired upon due to Nancy Pelosi visit.
  • The Russian War continues.

But on the positive side..

  • Drone strikes killed a major bad guy in Afghanistan.
  • Jones case against the Sandy Hook parents showed he perjured himself, and don’t get me going on him. Read the books on how his peeps trailed these parents, shot at their vehicles, causing them to go into hiding, and more. Guess I did go on, but justified, however, he wasn’t. Now claiming he’s bankrupt, but hiding his money in off shore accounts.
  • The Vets suffering despicable health problems from burn pits received health coverage. Thanks, Jon Stewart. Biden’s son Beau probably died from this.
  • The Chip Bill passed assuring our national security. Thanks, Gina Raimondo, future president. Let’s start a rumor… We need her at the helm..

God Bless Jon Stewart

Senate republicans blocked funding for veteran health care in retaliation for Manchin voting with the dems on the climate change bill. This bill sailed through the senate with 84 votes 2 months ago but because of a glitch had to be revoted on. The voting came after the climate change bill was passed.

Jon Stewart, a long advocate for vets, and 9/11 responders is calling out republicans, and will not let this die. Am assured he’ll appear on Stephen Colbert Monday discussing this, however, the bigger question is why? These vets were exposed to burn pit toxins, and it may even be the reason why President Biden’s son, Beau, died due to brain cancer. They serve us and deserve appropriate health care. Don’t you agree?

Vets – Remember this when you vote.

And Jon Stewart, I know you won’t give up this fight.

Maybe Jon needs to run for office? I understand Rachel Maddow is.

Mark Fogel

Another American that has been in a Russian prison for 11 months after bringing 14 vape cartridges in his bags, shoes, and cannabis buds in a contact lens case, to Russia. A 60 year old American teacher from Pittsburgh is now serving 14 years in a Russian jail.

The family is calling for assist, and hoping he can be added to the other 2 Americans requesting release.

Interesting………

Chip Bill, Climate Change and Gun Control Legislation…

Are we starting to get some things done?

Let’s hope so.

Here’s a rundown if you aren’t following..

Chip Legislation

The US manufactures about 10%, (don’t quote me here, but the figure is very low), of the chips we currently need and use. This has become a national security issue as we need these items for defense as well as almost EVERYTHING…. Gina Raimondo, Secretary for Commerce, and formerly Rhode Island Governor, put together this amazing bill incorporating benefits along with safeguards to get this legislation passed. Brilliant woman, magna cum laude Harvard in economics, Rhodes Scholar, the list is endless…………………. Heard her speak on a plane podcast, and man she can hold her own against the best of them – if you ever have the chance to hear her speak, make the time.

One to watch..

The Climate Change/Tax Bill – Schumer and Manchin

After the angst Manchin created, Biden tasked Schumer to work with Manchin to accomplish something on these issues. They had been working together quietly for several months and this is the compromise.

  • 15% corporation tax on companies making over $1 billion a year
  • Beefed up tax enforcement for the wealthy
  • By 2030 40% cap on carbon emissions
  • Tax credits for solar panels, batteries, and other tech items

The beauty of this bill is 60 votes are not needed in the senate for passage. Expected to be on Biden’s desk by next week. Prayers answered, now if we could only get putin and his thugs.

Gun Control Legislation

This law, 10 years in the making, (disgusting isn’t that?!), finally made it through June 2022 by the dogged efforts of Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut. It closes the boyfriend loophole which no longer allows stalkers and the like to get a gun, red flag laws, which allow police to remove firearms from homes where there is potential problems, and increases mental health funding.

This is the first gun control legislation in decades.

Some good news for the weekend.

Thanks, Joe.

The Russian War

When you think the atrocities the Russian soldiers have incurred couldn’t get any worse, a video of them castrating a Ukrainian soldier with a box cutter appears on the internet. Thought it was horrific when it was reported that Russian soldiers raped teenage girls repeatedly in a basement causing 9 pregnancies.

Both these crimes are barbaric horrors.

It’s been a long 5 months for the Ukrainians, and while I have reviewed the WWII news reel devastation I wonder at times – should we just go in and finish them off?? OR would that be the end of all of us? Tough questions and tough decisions.

Just glad we have Biden at the helm, or else we’d be raising the Russian flag on American soil.

“Who couldn’t like Joe Biden?”

This is the new Republican Party mantra. As former President Bush endorsed Joe, one wonders who is next??? Cindy McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Lisa Murkowski, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Jeff Flake, millionaire donor Francis Rooney???

Believe the new initiative Republicans For Joe Biden is gaining.

For the country to survive let’s hope so.
