Maybe it will not be so bad!
Maybe I worry too much and maybe the country will survive four years of Joe Biden in the White House. But, the first thing that we have to notice is that the price of gasoline is climbing toward the two and a half bucks a gallon.
We had enjoyed the price of less than two dollars for a long time and with the swipe of Biden’s pen, it’s fifty cents more.
Other changes are happening like to southern border wall is now being built around the capitol, just to kept us citizens out.
The Democrats are pushing an almost two trillion dollar relief package and that makes me think that, should we depend on the government for hand outs or should we demand that we return to work and support the government.
The federal debt is nearing 30 trillion dollars and that my dear friends puts the debt on the shoulders of citizens not yet born.
A piece on the Opinion page of Sunday’s St. Paul Pioneer Press gives me hope. Ramesh Ponnuru, who is a senior editor at the National Review and a Bloomberg Opinion columnist, wrote the piece and I would like to let you know what he thinks.
“A series of executive actions by President Joe Biden has pulled U. S. policy to the left on a range of issues including fracking, abortion, and transgender athletes. Progressives should savor the moment, because it could well represent a peck in their efforts to change the country.
“Biden came into office with a very progressive platform. But it is entirely possible, even likely, that he won’t deliver on much of it. His immigration proposal is for show, not an attempt to get something through Congress. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin’s opposition means he may not have 51 votes for a $15 minimum wage, let alone the 60 that Senate rules probably require. Democrats don’t have nearly enough votes to create new states, block voter-identification laws or increase gun regulation. Legislation on some of those issues would struggle even to pass the House.”
Still unanswered is the push to create more states, have Puerto Rico become the fifty-first state, Washington D.C. the fifty-second and so on with the hopes by Democrats that the population in these areas would vote Democratic. Some years ago there was a suggestion that the State of Wisconsin be divided. All lands north of Highway 64 would become a new state. So, all of our friends living in Connorsville and north would no longer be in Wisconsin, it would be Connorsville, Superior. But, one thing for sure is that things are always changing.
But, one thing that is not on Biden’s desk is military spending and how can we keep a strong force to protect our shores and our interests. I wish that we could return to the nineteenth century were what happens in other parts of the world didn’t mater much to our population. We were insulated by distance, and that kept us safe. But today, it is just a matter of minutes and our world can be destroyed.
