The Biden Presidency

Secondly why is socialism a bad idea anyway? Your comment seems very knee-jerk and throw-away.

Stalin, Hitler, and Mao being responsible for the murders of well over one hundred million people might make you pause for that though, and think maybe it's not worth it
 
I just lump them in with the other 74 million assault rifle wielding, inbred *******.
What about the Bible belt? A load of assault rifle wielding, inbred *******, who think the world is 6000 years old and dinosaur fossils were created by God to trick the unbelievers.

I thought that was all of them to be honest?

Not at all bad for a senile broken old man as claimed by some. How well that translates to actions remains to be seen.
Agreed and I noticed something else. Although they raised the two screens for the "sincerity machine" he did not look at them but delivered almost the whole 15 minute speech straight to camera, and without using notes either. He is a professional politician but was talking "straight from the front of his mind" or he memorised the entire address. I'm inclined to the latter as these addresses are too important for rambling. Not bad for a 78 year old.

As you say the proof is in the doing.
 
Don't know much about the guy, but the present infatuation with him by the BBC and ITV is beginning to grate. They will be telling us next that he can walk on water!
How long will it last though, soon the sneering metro middle class and Lab 'activists' will surface with their anti-US clatter. Watch the Guardian.

Yes, but none of those were socialists. All I am asking is why it's a bad idea just because. Too many americans simply discard ideas because they are considered socialist or liberal without looking at the merit of the idea.
You can't ditch everything because it fits in a category.

The reason I have no major issues with Trump is that I personally felt he had a low impact on myself and the UK - I'm not one to get emotional over his personality, I'm not particularly interested in the US' domestic issues unless they influence our own and things like BLM weren't driven by him, he was just the excuse. He didn't demand UK troops to back up any warmongering and his Foreign Policies didn't really affect us as far as I can tell, happy to be corrected, and it was actually nice to see certain actors being stood up to.

If Biden/Harris can do the same then I wish them all best - if they start interfering and dragging us into their wars - be it social or physical, then that's a different story. Hopefully I can generally ignore them as I did Trump.

It's a bad idea because of human nature.

It's that simple.

People look back and still think real socialism has never been tried, but then look at Venezuela

It didn't take having a socialist government long to reduce the country to a state where the government were asking people to eat their own pets to alleviate food shortages

Real socialism can't work, unless human beings stop being human

But they are though aren’t they?

My perception of America is as follows:

New York - Italian gangsters, pizza and Wall Street.
Boston - Everyone thinks they’re Irish.
Detroit - Used to make cars, now a third world country.
Washington - The White House and stuff.
Florida - Wealthy Jews, cocaine and Latinos.
Massive bit in the middle - 74 million trailer dwelling, assault rifle wielding rednecks.
New Orleans - Black people, flooding and jazz.
Nevada - Gambling, drugs and hookers.
California - Hollywood, gays, black and Latino gangsters.

That’s pretty much it.
Excellent when this COVID fiasco is over I’m off for a visit, could be fun :slow:
 
Whatever your Politics, whatever your Nationality, watching the Trump entourage leaving Airforce One in Florida, whilst the Inauguration Ceremony takes place in Capitol Hill just about sums it up for me.
I’m absolutely no fan of Biden or his Politics, but the absence of Trump is an act of childish petulance and an insult to that great Office.
...to the strains of Village People belting out YMCA.... How bizarre... did the Beeb overdub the backing music just to make it seem more stupid.?. at least Trump didn't start doing the YMCA actions...
 
Nope. Why bring your sexual preferences into it?
Why do you keep trying to get me to argue with you? You seem to be in the mistaken belief that I give a shit what you think. Trot along now. Go play in the wendy house with your friends. ta ta H.
