Welcome President Biden and V-P Kamala Harris. Joe, you’re a fast worker. The twenty-some Executive Orders you signed give us a solid view on issues that were mostly missing from your campaign talks last fall.
This brings up a few questions for voters who were originally on the fence, or usually voted Republican for President but changed to Biden-Harris in 2020. We all know that most Democrats always vote for the Democrat candidate, and most Republicans vote for the Republican.
My questions are aimed at the couple of million voters in the middle, in key swing states, such as suburban women and industrial union members, who eventually decided to vote for Joe Biden. (I give no answers; just questions.)
Did you know that President Biden planned to shut down the partially completed $8 Billion Keystone XL pipeline being built to transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada to Gulf Coast refineries, a key to maintaining energy independence for North America?
Did you know that President Biden would sign an order allowing strong, muscular biological males to play in girls’ high school and women’s college sports (and on our Olympic team)? And allow them to use the female dressing rooms and bathrooms in all schools and public buildings?
Did you know he would re-sign the Paris Agreement on climate change that commits us to cut our carbon emissions (which we already cut more than any other country), pay the costs for 180 other countries to cut emissions, while the one with the most emissions, China, is allowed to keep increasing theirs for 9 more years?
The President said Immigration is his #1 problem to solve (after Covid, I suppose). Did you know he would order that all undocumented aliens in prison or local jails, including MS-13 gang members, be released? And that non-citizens up to about 35 years old who were brought here as youth would have a clear path to become citizens, along with their parents?
Did you know he planned to immediately stop construction on the security wall on our Mexican border?
Did you know he would give everyone who entered the country illegally 100 days to move to a sanctuary city so they won’t be deported?
Did you know that several thousand poor people in Central America would interpret President Biden’s words to mean they have 100 days to walk across Mexico, freely cross our border without being tested for Covid, hitch a ride to California or other sanctuary state or city, find a job, and live happily ever after?
Did you know he would allow people in seven countries with insufficient security enforcement at airports (like our TSA) to board planes headed to the U.S.?
Ok, time for a couple of silly questions: Did you know he ordered an NFL team in warm, sunny Florida to go north to the frozen tundra in Wisconsin and beat Green Bay? Do you think President Biden realized when he ordered continuous mask wearing for everyone on or in Federal property that he lives, works, eats, and, yes, sleeps in Federal property?
Historic quotes by Will Rogers:
“The more I see of politics … the more I wonder what in the world any man would ever want to take it up for. Then some people wonder why the best men of a community are not the office holders.” WA #146, Sept. 27, 1925
“If we could just send the same bunch of men [and women] to Washington for the good of the nation and not for political reasons, we could have the most perfect government in the world.” WA #78, June 8, 1924
