If Egypt refuses to allow aid into Gaza

It has been nearly a week since Biden said Egypt would allow aid into Gaza. We're still waiting.

If Egypt does not allow aid soon, we should cut off all funding we send to Egypt

Defense is, at heart, anti-war

When defense was misused as it was durring the Bush years it became pro-war.

In Israel, the border defense kept the peace until it failed, now there is war.

Being anti-war is the best defense against the pro-war people.

They have been fighting over Israel for 2,000 years

This is just the latest in a longline of their wars, it may never end.

No use getting too uptight and wanting the wars to continue.
Better we ask for peace and the wars to stop.

We didn't start the fire, it was always burning

The best we can do is avoid throwing any kindling on the fire

It is what true peace loving people do

Next speaker of the house will be......

The next speaker wil be a congressperson who can convince all the republicans in the house that they will be happy.

It took McCarthy 15 votes before he could do that. He failed after nine months, so he's out.

I don't think there is anyone who can make all republicans happy

Not in a few weeks or months even. So we will have chaos and more do nothing congress for awhile, which considering the majority and the damage they could do if united, do nothing is good.

The other way is for a few republicans becoming Democrats and voting for Jefferies who can make all the Democrats happy

Magats believe God chose the conman

Looks like God has given up on him. He lost the elections, and now is being prosecuted in 4 states. God does not choose losers. Say good bye donald.

Don't give them another chance



For four years they had the presidency and half of congress. Yes the republicans ruled our government for years and years and what did America get?

A circus. Not an enjoyable circus, no, just a circus of ill-tempered ugly clowns making stupid things happen.

Take Jan. 6. How stupid was that? The outcome was 1,000 + arrested and the world looking on in astonishment that the world power telling them we are all about democracy was a lie.

Jan. 6 was not about democracy, it was about monarchy. It was an attempt to throw out the vote and keep the loser of the votes as the leader.

Republicans across the board still haven't repented their support for the insurrection and destruction of democracy. Over half of the elected republicans in congress voted to keep dear leader over the clear choice of votes from the people of America. It was as anti-democratic as possible, yet they did just that, and still hold to that.

The chief clown was one whose best foreign friends are enemies of America. The chief clown denied science of not only global warming but also the covid virus. He got on stage daily and clowned his way through his, and his only, facts.

Yes, this is a condemnation of republicans.

Hope is that republicans will end our misery and tell their clowns the circus is over, go home, and stfu.

Asked the young lady cashier if she votes

She said yes, she registered at the DMV when getting her license

I mentioned to her that if Democrats had their way she'd be making $15 an hour. She looked surprised. She did not know that.

Good news, bad news about climate

First Solar panels are being installed at an ever increasing rate. Hope is that eventually dirty coal plants will be replaced due to Solar being cheaper than coal. Also solar can be used to charge EVs so one will eventually be able to drive almost free of costs and emissions.

Bad news is the methane levels are spiking. Oil pumping is a large part of why methane is escaping, and oil in the US has never been pumped at higher levels than now,

Then there is the buried in ice methane that is escaping due to warming. Science says the methane escaping in the Arctic is about to hit levels which will increase warming above and beyond anything we have seen.

So, buy solar, get an EV if you drive a lot and vote to reduce dependence on all fossil fuels. That way your contribution to climate change will be limited

I think Joe Biden is reading DU

He is saying the same things as what I read on DU some months ago. Biden hears the people like no president ever has because he reads DU?

About LiberaBlueDem

Been on FB for years but after making so many trumpers mad they canned me. Found DU and been reading for a few months and know this is where this old liberal (almost 67) belongs. I intend to inspire the youngsters to support and vote Dem since Dems are the only viable future
