Opinion: Are the democrats even running things?

The Democratic Party in the United States is supposed to have the Presidency, the House of Representatives and have 50 senators in the Senate. So, in the Senate the Vice-President could vote to have a majority like the Trump Presidency showed plenty of times when Mike Pence voted in favour when it was a tie on legislation and important votes there.

It is tragic that the 45th President was able to do more than what the Democratic President Joe Biden. That’s because he doesn’t have the loyalty or the ability to have all the ducks in the row. Biden cannot keep his senators behind him or get them to vote for the legislation, which is supposed to be the unique and the what the Republic needs at this very moment. Instead, they have rebels like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.

Even with a President who used mostly to pass Executive Orders, he was at least doing something for his base. He ordered things and pushed things forward for his political base. Alas, the Democrats doesn’t seem to be able to do that. The Biden Administration isn’t able to backtrack or fix the repressive immigration policies of the Trump era. Neither is it able to tax-loops, the corporate tax-levies and such. No, the Democrats cannot make the Supreme Court more just or fair. They cannot even try to roll out a fair minimum wage.

The Democrats have promised the magnificent “Build Back Better Act” which was supposed to be filled with stipulations and amendments that was supposed to fix a lot of the issues in the Republic. The bill is said to be costly and be vast. Though, the ones complaining about the costs could vote for the Iron Dome defence in Israel and mega-budget posts for the military industrial complex fitting Pentagon and other security agencies.

Biden and the Democrats are just spoiled by the corporate agenda, which the moderates and the neo-liberal have cheered on. The Squad or the Progressives haven’t gotten anything to prove for. Manchin is acting like his the majority of the people and should have the control of the nation. When his one out of two senators from West Virginia. Not like he has the support in whole South or in the Mid-West. This man is on a high horse and coal-money is inflicting a lot of harm. Manchin will soon sell Trump’s clean coal to the masses.

Joe Biden and the VP looks like they cannot control their own party. The voters has wasted their votes in the last election giving them control of the chambers of congress. Since, they cannot even pass proper legislation or acts of which can make the Republic better. This is is just wasted space and time, which no political party really have. Biden has nothing to show for … except for blocking international media, getting Assange and being a neo-liberal corporate stooge in office.

It is tragic that one or two senators from the own party can stop things from moving forward. It would be natural if the senate filled with Republican’s blocked it. If Mitch McConnell would block things and be a living hypocrite we know he is. That would be expected. The same could be said if the House of Representatives was run by the GOP. However, both places are now run by the Dems. Though it doesn’t look like it.

At this point of time, former rep. Paul Ryan looks like a gem in comparison to Nancy Pelosi. Because, Ryan was able to leverage and get things done. Alas, the Democrats are not even able to do that…

This is just tragic man. You thought things was bad when the Republican was running things. Now, with the Democratic Party it seems all lost and no way forward. Nothing is reformed or changed. Just wasted time and wasted space. Manchin proves that and Biden administration has nothing to counter with. Just a lot of hot-air and a congress filled with wicked corporate interests, which rules supreme. Peace.

Opinion: AOC’s Stunt 101

Congress Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have stirred a lot of controversy for wearing a white dress with the text “tax the rich”. That was done at the Met Gala of 2021, which is where all the celebrities and the rich is gathering. They are wearing fashionable clothes and showing themselves off, as they paying 35,000 US dollars just to partake in it.

The Met Gala was on 13th September 2021 and since then in political circles the dress has been discussed. That is all natural… however… she is not winning by doing this. Unless, she wanted headlines and get traction online. AOC is being discussed, but not in the manner of which she wanted.

It is just hypocrisy. This is the definition of weak-tea. The rich, the wealthy and the 1% wouldn’t be afraid with this. They are not scared or feels the out-of-touch demonstration. The only thing AOC is succeeding is to waste her time and her role as a legislator.

If she believes in the cause and wants to make a difference. AOC should assemble the squad. Pressure the ruling Democratic Party in Congress and get legislation passed, in which the rich will be more taxed. Make it in manner where the IRS will actually repeal the loopholes and the possibility to pay practically “nothing” while earning billions of dollars. That is what she should do and she have the opportunity to as well.

It is not like AOC is a lone activists and doesn’t have power. She is in the Squad and that’s supposed to be progressive. The Squad and it’s members are supposed to make difference. However, it has been a lot of hot-air and very little actions. That’s why this is a publicity stunt and nothing else.

AOC should put forward bills, motions and such where the taxes are aimed at the upper-class, the billionaires and the 1%. However, if she does that… she will have to battle the corporate-Democrats in combination with business-friendly Republicans. So, she will have no friends doing this and it will be a minority. Nevertheless, it would be a better look to come with an ironclad bill and tax regulations to change this…

The dress is just a stunt. It is as briefly cool as G Unit music-video “Stunt 101” and when 50 Cent drives the car straight out of the window of the car dealership. Just as you remember that and catches the speed. The same is what this dress does…

However, AOC have such more power and ability to do something about it. Instead she is writing motions sending congratulations to Bangladesh’s 50th Liberation Day. That doesn’t cost the state anything and neither is it controversial. But to fight for a just reform of taxes will be and that will target the individuals/corporations who funds the political parties. This is why it’s a bit hectic to do so and they are earning fortunes on the misfortune of others. That’s why this isn’t changing and it’s easier to come with these acts of self-importance compared to actual acts of work in Congress.

She should call the Squad and pressure Nancy Pelosi to an inquiry and make a taxation reform. We know that will not happen and it’s so simple to just show-up in dress at a Met Gala, instead of pushing legislation through the chambers of Congress. Peace.
