All negative, nothing positive, nothing concrete.

Republican priorities when we regain the majority next year: 1 – Hold the Biden Administration accountable 2 – Secure the Border 3 – Make our cities safe again 4 – Rein in the out-of-control inflation 5 – Stop the overreach of government mandates. — misleader Kevin McCarthy

McCarthy would blame Biden for anything he doesn’t like. There was crime when Richard Nixon was President. He was responsible mostly when he was the criminal. It was the same with Tweety.

McCarthy is dreaming if he thinks he can stop human migration. He doesn’t say how he thinks this could be done. Perhaps he envisions thousands in squalid camps in Mexico as in Belarus.

Crime statistics may show cites to have been sometimes safer, sometimes not. It is unlikely that partisan politics affects crime directly, but economic ups and downs might.

It is the Fed’s job to combat inflation which it does by raising or lowering interest rates. Congress can do little about it, and there is no consensus for what little it might do. Some say cut spending, some say raise taxes; the result is nothing is done.

As with President Obama, Republicans claim everything the Biden Administration does is overreach. Even investment in infrastructure is panned, although Republicans favor it when they are in power.

People who claim to revere the flag are often wont to desecrate it; those who claim to value The Constitution often misinterpret it; those who call loudly for fair elections often support voter suppression, some calling for “one person, one vote” don’t recognize some of us as persons. Heaven forbid we return these people to power.

    The GOP is playing to the stupids. And there are A LOT of stupids.

    Sadly, I believe few of us ever take a course in criminology, in economics, in sociology, or learn about the flag code. Most of us should have learned about The Constitution in HS, but many seem to have slept through it.

    I taught the Constitution for over 25 years. We read every word . I had to explain a lot of it because the language can be somewhat convoluted. (Like writing about slavery without ever writing the word: slavery). But for many folks it seems as though the Constitution means only the 2nd Amendment… and they misinterpret that as well. The power of the NRA and right wing media.

    Aside from the Second Amendment, was the Emoluments Clause meant to be unenforceable, was impeachment meant to be a “paper tiger,” does “advice and consent” work as intended, can each house “make its own rules,” or can proxy voting be challenged in court? If proxy voting can be challenged, what about the Senate’s filibuster rule? Can Congress delegate the war-making power to the President? Can states ignore the vote of the people in naming Federal Legislators? Can the Supreme Court be partisan? Can we lose our Constitutional rights not because The Constitution has changed but because the political perspective of the Justices has changed? If Congress censures or removes a member for cause, does that justify retribution? The plain language of The Constitution is full of ambiguities and loopholes, which would be irrelevant only if we would elect responsible citizens as intended
