ON MY SOAPBOX….Good decision making is important


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

As young people, we have all made poor decisions. We would make some different choices if LIFE had a rewind button. As we grow older and survive Life’s Boot Camp, we learn to make wiser choices and more prudent decisions. At least, smart people do.

Bad decisions by stupid people often become fodder for jokes…while good decisions by smart people can actually make the world a better place.

Elizabeth Warren was once a Republican. She decided to switch parties and become a democrat. After that, she decided to become a Native American.

Then she decided to become President of the United States. No deal..so she dropped from the race and endorsed Joe Biden in hopes of becoming obama’s choice for Biden’s VP. It turns out that Native Americans are too paleface to impress obama. She settled for being a speaker at the DNC so that BOTH people watching the virtual convention could hear her speech.

I have as much confidence in Pocahontas' DNA test results as I do ...

As I said previously, “Bad decisions by stupid people often become fodder for jokes.”

 

Ronald Reagan was once a Democrat. He decided to switch parties and become a Republican. After that he decided to become governor of California. And he did. Twice.

Then he decided to become President of the United States. And he did. Twice.

As I said previously….”Good decisions by smart people can actually make the world a better place.”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—Even More On Uncle Joe


From: Hank Ashmore

The Deplorable Infidel

 

 

EVEN MORE ON UNCLE JOE

The following is an overview of Joe Biden’s policy positions and his voting record on key pieces of legislation during his years in the Senate:

Education

Senator Biden received a 91% rating from the National Education Association (NEA), indicating that more than nine-tenths of his votes were satisfactory to America’s largest labor union, which has contributed massive sums of money to Democratic Party candidates. Like the NEA, Biden opposes merit pay for teachers and a voucher system that would permit parents to redirect a portion of their tax dollars away from the public schools and toward private-school tuition for their children.

Environmental

Biden believes that global warming is caused by industrial and automotive pollution, and that broad and immediate action must be taken to curb its effects. He has signed on to AOC’s New Green Deal.

ABORTION

His Roman Catholic beliefs notwithstanding, Biden believes that abortion should remain legal in the United States, and that the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision should not be overturned. “I do not believe that the government should be involved in making judgments on whether a woman can, or should have an abortion, or – if she chooses to do so – in paying for that abortion.” The Hyde Amendment states that the federal government cannot pay for a abortion. After flip-flopping, Biden agreed with the far-left and agreed that the Hyde Amendment should be done away with.

GUN RIGHTS

Biden received an “F” rating from the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, for his consistent record of voting to limit the rights of gun owners and manufactures. He also voted in favor of exposing the firearms industry to potentially crippling lawsuits.

COUNTER-TERRORISM

In 2007 Biden voted against a bill permitting the director of National Intelligence and the Attorney General ‘to authorize foreign intelligence acquisition concerning those reasonably believed to be outside of the U.S., provided that written certification is presented that the procedure does not constitute electronic surveillance under existing law, the surveillance is made under the assistance of a communications provider, and the significant purpose of the acquisition is to obtain foreign intelligence information.

IMMIGRATION

Biden voted “Yes” on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security, and “Yes” on allowing more foreign workers into the U.S. for farm work.

In 2007 Biden voted against a bill to prohibit illegal aliens convicted of serious crimes from gaining legal status.

Biden also voted in favor of continuing to send federal funds to sanctuary cities; against requiring a photo ID from people registering to vote; and “No” on declaring English the official language of the United States.

TAXES

Through his Senate career, Biden, with few exceptions, generally supported higher taxes, though he did vote against specific tax increases which were advanced by Republicans.

SUPREME COURT

In 1987 Biden was a key player in preventing the confirmation of President Reagan’s Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork, warning that Bork would strip minorities, women, and children of their civil rights. In later years, Biden similarly (though unsuccessfully) sought to derail the Supreme Court nomination of Clarence Thomas, William Rehnquist, John Roberts, and Samuel Alito, who, like Bork, were all strict constructionist who opposed judicial activism; i.e., they subscribed to the tenet that a Justice’s duty is to interpret the law and the Constitution as it is written, and not to legislate from the bench.

THE 9/11 ATTACKS

Shortly after 9/11, Biden told his staff that America should respond to the worst act of terrorism in its history by showing the Arab world that the U.S. was not seeking to destroy it. “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran,” he said. Later as Barack Obama’s vice president, he did not oppose Obama’s gift of $150 billion to the mullahs in Iran.

CIVIL RIGHTS

Biden is a defender of affirmative action in academia and the business world. He is also a supporter of the proposed Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution.

Biden’s response to a November 2006 U.S. Airways incident involving six Islamic imams is instructive. The imams in question were removed from a plane shortly before takeoff because several passengers and crew members had become alarmed by what they perceived by the imams suspicious behavior. The Council on American-Islamic Relations subsequently filed a lawsuit on behalf of the imams, against both the airline and the complaining passengers. In response to the suit, two Republican congressman, Peter King and Steven Pearce, crafted an amendment seeking to create legal immunity for citizens who report suspicious behavior in good faith. The amendment was initially approved by lawmakers in March 2007, but Senator Biden voted against it.

There is so much more that could be said about Joe Biden’s liberal stance on everything that is good about this country, but space limits the whole truth to be told. This man would be a disaster for America if he would be elected president. This country cannot afford another Barack Obama.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

Ronald Reagan said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” That generation, I’m afraid, is here.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

The most basic question is not what is best, but who shall decide what is best.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Seeing Titan
Image Credit: VIMS Team, U. Arizona, U. Nantes, ESA, NASA

Explanation: Shrouded in a thick atmosphere, Saturn’s largest moon Titan really is hard to see. Small particles suspended in the upper atmosphere cause an almost impenetrable haze, strongly scattering light at visible wavelengths and hiding Titan’s surface features from prying eyes. But Titan’s surface is better imaged at infrared wavelengths where scattering is weaker and atmospheric absorption is reduced. Arrayed around this visible light image (center) of Titan are some of the clearest global infrared views of the tantalizing moon so far. In false color, the six panels present a consistent processing of 13 years of infrared image data from the Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) on board the Cassini spacecraft. They offer a stunning comparison with Cassini’s visible light view.
