Protect Our Democracy
Republicans and Democrats should be able to agree that no president, regardless of party, should be able to obstruct and undermine the will of the American people or exploit weaknesses in our political system for personal gain.
That’s where the Protecting Our Democracy Act comes in. If passed, it would prevent future abuse of presidential power and corruption, increase transparency and ensure presidents of either party can be held accountable.
Strengthening the guardrails on presidential power is just common sense. If the average person used their office for personal gain, they’d go to jail. If the average person could pardon themselves, there would be no rule of law.
No president should be above the law. That’s why I’m urging Congress to pass the Protecting Our Democracy Act. We must prevent future presidents of any party from abusing the power of their office.
Solution To Baby Formula Shortage
So Creepy Uncle Joe managed to somehow screw up an even worse crisis of his creation. Just when it was announced he finally agreed to ask help from other countries he added the caveat that it would only go to certain facilities and agencies (who I personally believe were chosen by his flunkies) for distribution.
I know, the whiny liberals are screaming it’s the only fair way to distribute it. My answer is the old saying by President Ronald Reagan warning people about government offers of intervention: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”.
How about this: Dems have all that data about where the shortages are the worst and every store in the country is going to be demanding a share of the supply. Obviously the initial supply will not be enough to get everybody some.
I don’t believe I’m about to say this, but state and local governments, based on where the shortages are worst, should be responsible for the distribution until stores can get back up to reasonable levels. Yes, the distribution centers should charge a price based on an average of what local stores were charging, and a limit on the amount of each purchase until this situation is under control. And each of these distribution centers should be closely monitored by local officials to at least try to ensure there is little hanky-panky going on.
But let’s keep in mind that this situation is a Democrat controlled Joe Biden emergency. Yes, the manufacturer does carry a large amount of blame for their failure to maintain standards, but those standards are federal standards and I want to know why it was allowed to get this bad. A conspiracy theory specialist would say it was a test by the extreme left to see how much control they could get from something like this, but let’s not let ourselves be distracted by that idea. What this really was is another piece of proof that Biden and his cronies only care about what will push their agenda items, like gas price control for the purpose of eliminating fossil fuels quickly, border control (or more specifically their desire for no border control), and don’t forget the attempt to take control of how elections are run.
My concern is what will happen if they ever figure out how to do this on the sly.
Our hearts go out to the families and friends who have died in this tragic killing of a teacher and so many innocent children. We also care about the mental abnormality of the killer.
But, I feel sure the saddened people are not as appreciative of Biden’s handshake and thousands of taxpayer dollars to take his full team of people and transportation to give his condolences. He could use that money for something worthwhile for the community and given in honor of situation. He sure knows how to misspend other people so $ for his own publicity.
Alan, so your solution is for the government to distribute it itself using their ‘data’? or for a single government entity send to hundreds of local government entities to distribute? Both those ideas are absured. What is so controlling about independent distributors handling under singe point of federal governance? That is to keep price gauging from occurring. We have learned that private corporations will always put profit over public good.
“…push their agenda items”?! How does this crisis illustrate liberal agenda items? Your tinfoil hate as slipped way far to the right yet again? Just read your own BS statement….” test by the extreme left to see how much control they could get from something like this.”
You really need to get out more if this is what you take away from this crisis. I suggest an alternative learning…allowing too much consolidation of production with two few producers is too big a risk and should be more tightly governed during review of acquisitions/mergers.
But it is the duty and purpose of private corporations to generate wealth, or profit. That is the wellspring of all economic growth. “The public good” – whatever that is – is beyond their remit. That responsibility is supposedly borne by government, and what an awful mess they’re making of it, as always.
Again you show a lack of understanding of how the economy works. Not surprised. Mergers and acquisitions are reviewed by federal oversight to ensure there is no risks to consumers by the consolidation of the market. In this case, it has clearly been over consolidated.
Oh no, you are the economic ignoramus.
Economics should be taught in schools, so illiterates like you would be slightly less stupid.
Again I must have hit the nail on the head as you again have no counter points. Lol
How much do you get paid per response?? This is typical trolling. People don’t respond to him it’s bait and pay.
Liberal socialist moron a$$hole is what he really is
You all just don’t like an alternative point of view that doesn’t fit your narrow conservative agenda. Just a bunch of sheep following their shepherd. I know I have hit the nail on the head when all you all can do is call me names and lack any realistic counter to the argument made.
Someone here habitually insults others as “nutters” and “bigots”.
We all know who it is…. Chris.
Guess I hit the nail on the head. Again.
