On this day in 1863, Abraham Lincoln spoke for 3 minutes and gave what is characterized as “the most eloquent articulation of the democratic vision ever written.” The Gettysburg Address.
Supermarkets will be crowded today. The saturday before Thanksgiving.
I hope the stores do not run out of turkeys. We have been warned for over a month such could occur. What is Thanksgiving without a turkey?
Matt Gaetz qualifies as a political hack. Perhaps even a child molester.
He spoke re Kyle Rittenhouse yesterday. Gaetz says he is open to offering an internship to Rittenhouse if he is acquitted.
Gaetz’s words: “He is not guilty…..We may reach out to him and see if he’d be interested in helping the country in additional ways.”
An article in the Wall Street Journal reflects drug overdose deaths in the U.S. have hit a record high.
In the 12 month period running through April, there were 100,306 drug overdose deaths. A 29 percent increase from the same period the previous year.
Biden’s social infrastructure bill totals $1.75 trillion. A lot of money.
Biden has claimed the bill would cost taxpayers nothing.
The Congressional Budget Office said yesterday the bill would cost $160 billion over a 10 year period. Amounting to $16 billion a year.
A pittance compared to the overall 10 year bill costing $1.75 trillion. A pittance also to the way money is spent in Washington. $16 billion is nothing.
Time to cut the bullshit. Tjhe House approved the bill this morning. It is now in the hands of the Senate. The Senate should pass it as is or make whatever minimal adjustment it wants to wipe out the $16 billion a year. In whatever fashion, pass it! It will be the best law the Congress has passed in many a year.
One further thing. Biden is to be complimented regarding the bill. A job well done!
Charles Dickens is one of the greatest authors of all time. One of his famous works is “A Tale of Two Cities.”
Many great lines in the work. One is the opening sentence and another one that appears in the final chapter.
The opening line: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”
From the final chapter: “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.”
Enjoy your day!
