Democrats want limited legal immigration based upon certain criteria such as our economic need, family values, and our policies for refugees.

Democrats want reasonable firearms regulations to reduce gun violence in America.

Democrats, in their Green New Deal, put forward a challenge where the greatest part of that challenge (updating existing structures to be more energy efficient) relies on voluntary compliance by the public where there's a financial benefit in improving the energy efficiency of any structure.

Reducing coal use with natural gas is something that the energy companies have been doing for years. Reducing our reliance on nuclear energy that creates lethal toxic waste that will exist for thousands of years is pure common sense. Increasing clean energy from 20% to 31% in the next ten years is something that's happening as we sit around BSing about it.

I'm not reading a single thing that reduces our freedom one iota.
More babble, no substance.

Democrats don't want limited legal immigration based on need. If they did, they would favor stopping unlimited illegal immigration at the border. Favor eliminating aiding and abetting such as sanctuary anything. Favor cutting out benefits such as education and automatic citizenship for anchor babies,


Democrats don't want reasonable (I think it's supposed to be common sense, you missed the memo) or Constitutional firearms regulation. Democrats want bans. Well, OK, maybe just one ban for now, more to follow. If Democrats were interested in saving lives, they'd address the real problem. People using guns illegally. Presently the call is for assault weapons ban. An innocuous couple guns here and there which is the majority of privately possessed firearms.

The new green deal. I actually read it. It's not about green' It's a complete rehash of virtually all socialists policies. Total government control. Forced spending of trillions of private and public dollars on the agenda. Welfare for all. Even those who just don't want to work.

Aside from the impossibility of producing our energy needs 100% from so called renewable sources. It's cost prohibitive. Obama hisself said it would take $10/gallon gas to accomplish that goal.

There is nothing in the NGD that relies on voluntary anything. AOC's resolution doesn't spell out the economics of the plan. That presumably will come later. Probably much later. You can bet that remodeling your home will not be voluntary.

Good post! Also, I foresee AOC saying something like, " We need to pass the legislation before we know how much it costs"

And the Democrat sheep will say " Oh! OK we don't see a problem with that "

I think I have figured out why Democrats need to pass climate change legislation in the next 10 years.

Scientists are now saying they are expecting a global cooling trend in the next 10 years that could last 20-30 years.

If Dems DON'T pass legislation before the natural cool down, they won't be able to keep pushing their narrative.

If they DO pass legislation before the natural cool down, they will be able to say "See, we did it! We cooled the earth through higher taxes, and cap and trade" They will then push for more and more legislation to, " Keep up the good work"


This is one of many reports on the eminent natural cooling period coming.

Those climate change baboons need to chew bags of prunes through their ubiquitous rectums. That might energize their brains a bit to make them stop their silly nonsense.
