No amount of spending is ever enough for the communist Democrats. – The standard excuse the communist Democrats have deployed for the last half century to explain the abject failure of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society socialist welfare state to reduce poverty or make any aspect of life better for the nation’s poor is that we just didn’t spend enough money on it. No matter how many trillions of dollars America spent on these socialist/communist schemes, it was never enough. If only we’d just spend more.
Now here comes China Joe Biden, having already spent $2 trillion on a new set of wasteful federal boondoggles in his fake “COVID relief” bill and proposing to spend another $3 trillion on his fake “Infrastructure bill”. Not surprisingly, the current set of outright communist Democrats is now using the same excuse to explain in advance how all of this spending will also miserably fail to make anyone’s life even a little bit better.
Cue Socialist Barbie, i.e., Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, to give us the details:
Socialist Barbie™ Update: AOC Says Biden's Massive $2.5 Trillion Infrastructure Plan 'Needs to Be Waaay Bigger'
— RedState (@RedState) March 31, 2021
From the story at RedState.com:
Democrats are like children: give them an inch and they’ll do their best to take a mile. Tack on “Socialist” after “Democrat” and
lying spoiled childrenpeople like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will do their best to not only take a mile; they’ll also attempt to guilt you into giving them at least two more miles.
You know, so they can “compassionately” “invest” (increase the national debt, federal income taxes, and whatever else it takes to spend more confiscated or borrowed money) in government-dependent programs for the “underserved” among us.…
Incidentally, only 22 percent or roughly $422 billion of the $1.9 trillion COVID “stimulus” bill was earmarked for COVID relief checks to individuals.
So more than $4 trillion later and counting, AOC is not a happy socialist camper about Biden’s (miserly, by her “standards”) infrastructure “investment” in America, which apparently doesn’t include enough taxpayer money earmarked for ballooning the federal government even bigger and making even more Americans dependent on it.
Clearly, “this is not nearly enough,” tweeted the noted math wizard and acclaimed expert on federal government spending. It “needs to be way bigger,” she whined.
“This is not nearly enough. The important context here is that it’s $2.25T spread out over 10 years. For context, the COVID package was $1.9T for this year *alone,* with some provisions lasting 2 years. Needs to be way bigger.”
Of course it’s not enough. No amount of other people’s money is ever enough to fill the voracious appetite of these communist Democrats. Biden could propose an $8 trillion plan, and the communist talking points would still be the same. It’s the most predictable thing in the world.
AOC never disappoints.
Nothing triggers the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob like a Republican governor showing off his guns… – …or when he indicates he might not be getting his COVID vaccination at an event that would be televised. That’s what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did on Wednesday at a press conference:
‘If You Guys Want A Gun Show’: Gov. DeSantis Might Not Get Vaccinated On Camera Unless People Really Want To See It https://t.co/JU3mhtaThm
— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) March 31, 2021
From the story at the Daily Caller:
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that he is planning to get vaccinated after becoming eligible Monday, but does not know if it will be on camera.
“I became eligible on Monday. I haven’t had it yet, but I’m planning on doing it this week,” the 42-year old governor said following the state’s decision to lower the age threshold to 40, The Orlando Sentinel reported.
“I’m not sure we’re gonna do it on camera. If you guys want a gun show, maybe we could do it, but probably better off not,” DeSantis said jokingly, flexing his bicep. “We’re looking forward to do it.”
Naturally, liberal morons all over Twitter squealed about the Governor’s use of the term “gun show.” Because of course they did.
You just could never make this stuff up, folks.
China Joe wants Anthony Fauci to ruin the baseball season, too. – I kid you not, that’s the essence of what China Joe Biden said when he was asked about baseball season opening up today, and the plan by the Texas Rangers to allow their home stadium to be opened up to full capacity of 40,000 fans, who would still be idiotically required to wear their useless masks.
President Biden says Rangers opening Globe Life Field at full capacity is ‘a mistake’ https://t.co/qLhS0WN733
— SportsDay Rangers (@dmn_rangers) April 1, 2021
From the story at the Dallas Morning News:
As part of an interview with ESPN’s Sage Steele, President Joe Biden spoke about major league baseball teams opening up their stadiums to fans to begin the 2021 season.
Biden re-iterated the importance of wearing masks and continuing to follow health-and-safety protocols, and called into question the Texas Rangers’ decision to open Globe Life Field at full capacity on Opening Day.
“Well, that’s a decision they made. I think it’s a mistake,” Biden said. “They should listen to Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, the scientists and the experts. But I think it’s not responsible.”
Indeed, China Joe doesn’t approve of anything Texas is doing related to COVID these days, having referred to the decision by Governor Greg Abbott to lift the state’s idiotic mask requirement 22 days ago as “neanderthal thinking.”
But here’s the thing: The number of Texas deaths and cases has declined every single day since that decision was made, while blue states who have maintained their draconian restrictions – New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Minnesota, etc. – have experienced a actual increase. But of course, Biden’s a Democrat who wants to perpetuate this COVID crisis for as long as he possibly can, so that’s really the issue here, isn’t it?
And if the Rangers were to listen to Fauci as the Sock Puppet-in-Chief advises, they’d have to change their plans every day as Fauci contradicts what he said yesterday. Fauci is a menace to our society, a rank propagandist who is in no way, shape or form a “scientist,” and it is long past time we all quit listening to anyone who claims otherwise.
Thanks to the Texas Rangers organization for having the guts to lead the way forward.
Let’s play ball!
