4th February 2021
It’s official: Kamala Harris has been sworn in as president. Well, ok I’m a bit slow. It is 15 days now, but I started two days ago and I don’t suppose much has changed.
Mmm? Joe Biden was sworn in and Kamala Harris is vice-president? Are you sure?
It’s just that as Joe Biden was unfit to be president even before the presidential race started. Anyway, just because he has already signed 42 Executive Orders in the period that doesn’t make him president, does it? Really? Oh well, just shows how wrong you can be.
So, well done Joe, you have managed that very well. I think you deserve a rest after that. And you are ahead of Donald Trump in the signing orders stakes.
After all, he only managed 7 in 13 days. How lazy is that, eh?
Of course he may have been thinking about the impact of the orders first before signing, but hey, that’s a waste of effort isn’t it? Sure thing Joe.
Anyway since when have Democrats wasted time on thinking.
Probably not since Jimmy Carter came up with his own ideas in his presidency from 1977 to 1981.
This link is interesting.
It says elsewhere that the Carter’s stayed at home and missed the inauguration. It was rumoured that they didn’t miss it, but had an old T.V. set up on their shooting range. When Joe came on they took pot shots and were surprisingly accurate.
This is all alleged you understand. Unlike all the things said about Donald Trump which were clearly true, according to the mainstream media. And without needing to do things like double check the facts first. I mean, who does that nowadays?
And Joe made president in the end, so what the heck?
Third time lucky
Of course, like Robert the Bruce of Scotland, persistence pays off. Joe Biden has succeeded in becoming president on the
turd third time. He didn’t make the grade at all before.
Rather like his time at law school it seems. Although to be fair, he came 76th in a class of 85 in that case, so he must have achieved something. Go to bottom of page of link below.
76th from the top sounds better than 9th from the bottom in a class of 85 (turd and bottom apparently related).
A class of what we are not told. Humans, monkeys? Both?
So it must have been luck to get into the presidency this time. That or
lying inaccuracy. Easily done Joe, easily done. Lying Inaccuracy, that is. Especially if you practice it for long enough. Lying Inaccuracy, that is.
You can see from the above how easy it is for me to make mistakes too.
Even war stories are not exempt. ‘What did you do in the
whore war, daddy?’ To Joe details are irrelevant, apparently. See link below.
As I said earlier, no point bothering about double checking facts.
Or worrying about exaggerating. A lot.
Which proves my point that it must have been
lying luck to get into power.
I see in the article earlier that there was controversy over a comment Joe Biden made re Obama.
Biden drew controversy when in February 2007 he called Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” He later apologized, but the remark was not forgotten.
I assume when he apologised that he said that what he meant was “the first mainstream African-American who is inarticulate and dim and dirty and a horrible-looking guy.” Easy to make mistakes Joe, as I said before.
Personally, I think that Obama is all of the things Joe first said about him, except not the first, of course. What you call mainstream may be debatable, so I might just say Obama is ‘An African-American who etc, etc’.
It has been said he, Obama rather than Joe, is the Anti-Christ. I consider that to be a load of baloney. Or something else beginning with ‘b’, I forget.
Whereas he, Joe rather than Obama that is, is certainly not for Christ. And certainly not in a fit state to run a car, let alone a country. So that rules Joe out of being the anti-Christ, who as I understand it, is likely to have something left of his brain.
Anyway, I see that where the money comes from is of little concern, to Joe.
And whilst we are talking about numbers Joe has said apparently
He called his vaccine plan a “wartime effort”, as more than 400,000 Americans have died since the pandemic began in March 2020.
“This is a wartime undertaking, this is not hyperbole,” he said. From
Apparently verified by the following link where he said.
This is an aggregate plan that doesn’t leave anything on the table or anything to chance, as we’ve seen happen in the past year. I’ve said before, this is a war-time effort. When I say that people ask, “War time?” I say, “Yeah,” more than 400,000 Americans have already died, I think it’s 411 or 12, have died in one year of this pandemic. More than all the people who died and all the Americans who died in World War II.
This is a war-time undertaking, it’s not hyperbole. From
Well Joe, it is not hyperbole, not even superbole (might be Hollywood Superbole as Hollywood likes to exaggerate things to improve ratings). It is hypobole as in under exaggerating (think hypodermic as in under skin and needles).
This is because the following says perhaps 3.2 million may have died in 2020.
Perhaps you meant from Covid 19. That makes better sense. But sense is something missing, I think, in your speech.
Which means as Gordon Brittas might have said ‘May I have a word, Joe? I think we have a teensy, weensy problem, doh-n’t we?’ At least Gordon should have said it even if he didn’t quite say it that way.
Yes, perhaps just under all the Americans who died (depending on who that includes; from USA, North/South America??).
But definitely an awful lot less than those who died in World War 2. And you can double check that yourselves (you must always double check).
We mustn’t forget the issues of Neil Kinnock’s speech and Curtis C Dunn either, which I have referred in my earlier post Joe Biden.
But I have wandered into irrelevancies such as accuracy. I intended to look at the Orders. I make the total 42.
Which happens to be the ultimate answer to everything if you are a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fan.
They are listed here as of 2nd February 2021.
I make it 16 rescinding or reversing Trump’s orders, the rest 26 in total being new.
I haven’t looked at them all in detail (I don’t want to go to sleep just yet), but I would highlight the following:
Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government
I think this possibly means lending more money to certain groups who can’t afford to pay it back. In other words, more debt. Certainly more bureaucracy.
It may in fact mean racial equality in government agencies. But not among the common people, i.e. rest of USA population.
Executive Order on Enabling All Qualified Americans to Serve Their Country in Uniform
It says among other things
It is my conviction as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces that gender identity should not be a bar to military service. Moreover, there is substantial evidence that allowing transgender individuals to serve in the military does not have any meaningful negative impact on the Armed Forces.
immediately prohibit involuntary separations, discharges, and denials of reenlistment or continuation of service, on the basis of gender identity or under circumstances relating to their gender identity;
So if you identify as something other than a man or woman, that’s fine. If the sergeant should say to you ‘You are a horrible little man/woman, what are you!?’, you can say, for example ‘I am polyamorous, sir!’
Or perhaps ‘I am Intersex, sir!’. He may reply, ‘I don’t care if you are into sex, I said what are you!?’ You can then roll your eyes (sergeants are not always that bright) and say ‘I am in between sexes, Sir!’
He may then say ‘So, your either a he-it or a she-it, what are you!?
If you should happen to be a woman becoming a man you might reply ‘A she-it, Sir!’
All of which makes sense. A she-it or sh-it, as the army likes to keep things brief and to the point.
Which makes sense of my earlier comment regarding Joe Biden and
turd third time lucky.
Executive Order on Establishing the COVID-19 Pandemic Testing Board and Ensuring a Sustainable Public Health Workforce for COVID-19 and Other Biological Threats
This includes the words:
It is the policy of my Administration to control coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by using a Government-wide, unified approach that includes: establishing a national COVID-19 testing and public health workforce strategy; working to expand the supply of tests; working to bring test manufacturing to the United States, where possible; working to enhance laboratory testing capacity; working to expand the public health workforce; supporting screening testing for schools and priority populations; and ensuring a clarity of messaging about the use of tests and insurance coverage.
Which I think means more bureaucracy and bureaucrats and thinking about what we are going to do about things and making sure the message is clear.
Just not using good sentence structure, that’s all. Or full stops at least. I believe in the USA you call full stops ‘periods’.
Perhaps the lack of periods is due to the women at the top of the Democratic Party who don’t like to talk about that sort of thing or be reminded of that unseemly part of being a woman.
Personally, I don’t see why they should be ashamed, it is natural after all.
Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce
That seems straight forward. It says:
Sec. 5. Progress Toward a Living Wage for Federal Employees.
The Director of OPM shall provide a report to the President with recommendations to promote a $15/hour minimum wage for Federal employees.
So more bureaucracy. And promoting (but not necessarily enacting) a living wage in government agencies. But not among the common people, i.e. rest of USA population (not that Federal employees are necessarily going to get a living wage, so don’t be jealous – yet).
Possibly he means promoting a $15/hour minimum wage for Federal employees. As in ‘We haven’t got any more money and all Federal employees will get that amount’. Fair’s fair, that seems reasonable in a
communist demoncratic democratic state. I got the word eventually, sorry about that.
I assume the wage will be the same for presidents, vice presidents, presidents of vice, leaders of the House of Representatives etc. A reasonable assumption, I think. Someone like to ask Joe? If he is taking questions of course.
Executive Order on Reforming Our Incarceration System to Eliminate the Use of Privately Operated Criminal Detention Facilities
It says among other things:
Sec. 2. Contracts with Privately Operated Criminal Detention Facilities. The Attorney General shall not renew Department of Justice contracts with privately operated criminal detention facilities, as consistent with applicable law.
So, it seems to mean either let all the criminals out (121,718 people in 2017 apparently). From
Or possibly stuff them. Sorry, stuff them into existing jails.
If they have been non-mask wearers, or if they have imprisoned for lack of anti-social (sic) distancing, you should be very worried.
But if it’s only looting, murder, fraud etc no doubt this will be of little concern.
Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing
That seems straightforward. Protect the Federal Workforce and perhaps the common people, i.e. rest of USA population.
So more bureaucracy. And pointless mask wearing.
As I am now getting near to supper time, I think I will stop. You may have fallen asleep anyway. But I note the following paragraph at the end of a number of orders.
This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
Which roughly translates as:
Sod the common people, we the government are not responsible for our actions, so yah boo sucks.
And don’t forget the executive orders largely amount to:
- More bureaucrats
- More bureaucracy
- More debt.
- More masks
Or, as I might say, more Stupid 20 (there’s a lot of it about).
If for some reason you object to these very reasonable proposals, or didn’t vote for them, you might consider doing something about it.
Or as sergeant might say;
‘Get off your arses and get going, men!(and women!).
P.S. Remember it was 42 Executive Orders? As in 42 the ultimate answer to everything if you are a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fan?
