When it rains it pours, sometimes in buckets. Respected polls show Americans aren’t happy about the performance of the White House. It’s evident the Biden administration is drowning in a sea of crises of its own making, and average Americans are paying the price.

In just over nine months:

• Thirteen American soldiers died at the hands of the Taliban and currently there are at least 500 Americans still behind enemy lines in Afghanistan because of the administration’s botched middle-of-the-night evacuation. Thousands of Afghans who helped us over the years are also trapped and there’s been no viable plan put forward to save them.

• We have a humanitarian/national security crisis on our southern border where about 2 million people have illegally entered and few, if any, have been tested for COVID-19. Texas has needed to resort to imprisoning them in its own jails because of the administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws.

• COVID-19 is still rampant and the Biden administration’s unwanted vaccine mandate is forcing millions of citizens to take the “jab” against their will. And now, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing a rule that mandates firms with over 100 employees have their workers vaccinated or be fired. The U.S. military and the law enforcement communities are going to be decimated because a large number of their members are choosing termination over mandated vaccinations.

• The economy is stalled because potential employees are accepting federal money not to work, leaving job openings unfilled.

• Meanwhile, ships are anchored off our West Coast waiting to off load cargo but with labor shortages (truckers and dock workers) the supply chain has gone into slow motion and the Biden administration doesn’t have a clue how to fix this problem, nor a viable plan to do so.

• The Department of Justice is directing the FBI to investigate parents expressing their First Amendment rights to challenge school boards and the teaching of critical race theory, turning moms and dads into what they see as domestic terrorists.

• The administration’s compulsive behavior in the energy sector has turned the United States from an energy exporter to an importer and from unfriendly nations like China and Russia.

• Perhaps the most damaging failure lies with inflation running at decade-high levels. Shortages of natural gas have caused its price to double. Crude oil is almost the same. Housing and rent prices jumped by double digits. And now the administration wants to spend another $3.5 trillion that we don’t have on things that have nothing to do with infrastructure but which they’re calling it such. Overspending is already causing the increase in consumer costs and this inflation is hurting all Americans, especially those on fixed incomes and low- to middle-income families.

These and other bad choices by the Biden administration have the average American worried, and rightly so. Washington seems to be in a free fall. We desperately need responsible leadership. Can we survive another three years of this foolishness? Time will tell.

George Laiacona

Let’s face it the disgruntled Republicans will be putting forward negative comments about the Democrats for quite some time in our future. Distortion of the truth will be in the news as long as the infatuation with the TV celebrity remains. Then there are those of us who have no allegiance to any political party. We see that a Movie Star and a TV celebrity in the White House only cater to the rich. The lower classes of Americans need a champion in the White House. Fortunately President Biden is that champion. His advances towards attempting to curb the Trump Virus have been met with nothing but negative responses from the Republicans. Any comment regarding just what the President and his party will be met with untruths . The next election will prove whether or not the Americans that vote can see the truth and not the political rhetoric. We can only hope that the voters remember January 6th when the Trumpers tried to destroy our democracy.

Carlos Ponce

Again, nonsense from George Laiacona.

You'd think that someone like Holly who is a world-class expert on nonsense (an acknowledged expert practitioner) who recognize that it's the two writers and not George Laiacona who're nonsensical.

"ease his pain"

"For kindness to a father will not be forgotten, and against your sins it will be credited to you..."

"Whoever honors his father atones for sins,and whoever glorifies his mother is like one who lays up treasure. Whoever honors his father will be gladdened by his own children, and when he prays he will be heard.Whoever glorifies his father will have long life, and whoever obeys the Lord will refresh his mother; he will serve his parents as his masters."

Ed Buckner

Here’s an idea: every time someone posts an utterly mindless, quite absurd, comment a second or third time (or more), gather somewhat ironic replies into one Word document and just copy and paste, every time. That way, the poster of the original utterly mindless, quite absurd, comment may learn that he is directly responsible for me posting the truth in response to his (her?) foolishness. Let’s try it.

Holly as Satanist—

Holly, who is well established as a Satanist (atheists like me don't believe in Satan or Holly's tripartite "god") should be able to explain the mythology he accepts, but he's apparently misinformed on that as on much else.

Holly believes in Satan with all his heart. I don't. He's the self-admitted Satanist. I'm not.

Remember the simple, invariably accurate test: anyone who agrees that s/he does believe in Satan or who refuses to reply to a question about it, is, plainly, a Satanist.

BTW, it's easy to prove that Holly--or anyone like Holly--is a Satanist. Just ask: "Do you believe in Satan?" Anyone who says "Yes" or who refuses to answer is certainly a Satanist.

Repetition proves nought. But "tests"? Let's see, Holly: Holly claims to be a Christian; reasonably enough, we can test this by inquiring whether Holly believes in Christ and thinks he has power. If Holly says, "why Yes!" then we can conclude that such is evidence that Holly is a Christian. Holly claims not to be a Satanist; reasonably enough, we can test this by inquiring whether Holly believes in Satan and thinks he has power. If Holly says, "why Yes!" then we can conclude that such is evidence that Holly is a Satanist. Ed claims not to be a Christian; reasonably enough, we can test this by inquiring whether Ed believes in Christ and thinks he has power. If Ed says, "why No!" then we can conclude that such is evidence that Ed is not a Christian. Ed claims not to be a Satanist; reasonably enough, we can test this by inquiring whether Ed believes in Satan and thinks he has power. If Ed says, "why No!" then we can conclude that such is evidence that Ed is not a Satanist. If anyone anywhere thinks this is not a valid test, let him or her explain why not. If s/he cannot so explain, we've little choice but to conclude that it IS a valid test.

Holly thinks that because Holly's religion teaches that illogical insults are OK and that hating those you disagree with is inevitable, then others, without such a religion, also think hating those they disagree with is reasonable. But most of us don't hate those we disagree with on politics or religion--we just disagree. Psychologists generally report that not conflating disagreement and hate is mentally stable and makes for happier human beings.

Holly is so insecure about religious beliefs, as some Christians are. But I know or have read the writings of many other Christians who are not, who understand that others have not reached the same conclusions they have, who came to their own beliefs honestly. This has stirred in me an impulse to write more on the subject, and I may--but not for an audience of only one desperately insecure and profoundly misinformed inquirer. One who is an unabashed Satanist by the straightforward definition I've provided: one who thinks Satan exists and is powerful. When and if I write my thoughts up, I'll post a link here.

It is time--way, way, way past time--for Carlos ("Holly") Ponce to realize that he is grossly misinformed, stupidly writing about matters of which he knows little. If I told you that Holly became a Christian only because Holly was born into a Christian family, never seriously considered whether the family's religion made any sense, and supports US Presidential candidates based only on grifter rhetoric, would I be right? I don't know, and so I wouldn't pretend to base comments on that. Desperate insecurity and one's own beliefs is not a good basis for speculation about those who disagree with you, Holly.

Ed has a serious mental problem. Did you hate your father because he was a preacher?

Do you think your father did not pay as much attention to you as his ministry driving you away from your Christian up bringing? If that why you have made a career of attacking Christians?

It is time for Ed Buckner to reconcile with thoughts about his father and not take it out on everyone who projects Christianity.

A voice told fictional Ray Kinsella to "ease his pain". It must have been painful for Ed's father to see his son trash his beliefs and ministry. There's probably more to this story. It's time for Ed Buckner to "ease his pain".

George, the rich can afford inflated grocery prices and have the time to search for needed items when the store runs out due to supply chain failures. The poor don't. Inflation levels are not a "distortion of the truth." Anyone who's been grocery shopping or purchased gasoline knows the truth: the current administration has no knowledge of economics.

Gary Miller

Low income Americans are low income because they make poor decisions. They made another poor decision when they voted for China Joe. He makes poor decisions like his supporters, The US survived the Civil war, we will survive Joe Biden. It is looking like 2022 could be like 2010 on steriods. Democrats lost 3,000 elections from city to state and national elections. 2022 could produce 6,000 unemployed Democrats.

Ed Buckner

James Henry Hammond of SC made similar points on the floor of the US Senate in 1858. Of course he was a Democrat, a racist, and a rapist. It's called blaming the victims.

Carlos Ponce

Not quite, Ed. Senator James Henry (D-SC) said the following:

"In all social systems there must be a class to do the menial duties, to perform the drudgery of life. That is, a class requiring but a low order of intellect and but little skill. Its requisites are vigor, docility, fidelity. Such a class you must have, or you would not have that other class which leads progress, civilization, and refinement. It constitutes the very mud-sill of society and of political government; and you might as well attempt to build a house in the air, as to build either the one or the other, except on this mud-sill. Fortunately for the South, she found a race adapted to that purpose to her hand. A race inferior to her own, but eminently qualified in temper, in vigor, in docility, in capacity to stand the climate, to answer all her purposes. We use them for our purpose, and call them slaves. We found them slaves by the common 'consent of mankind,' which, according to Cicero, 'lex naturae est.' The highest proof of what is Nature's law. We are old-fashioned at the South yet; slave is a word discarded now by 'ears polite;' I will not characterize that class at the North by that term; but you have it; it is there; it is everywhere; it is eternal.

The Senator from New York said yesterday that the whole world had abolished slavery. Aye, the name, but not the thing; all the powers of the earth cannot abolish that. God only can do it when he repeals the fiat, 'the poor ye always have with you;' for the man who lives by daily labor, and scarcely lives at that, and who has to put out his labor in the market, and take the best he can get for it; in short, your whole hireling class of manual laborers and 'operatives,' as you call them, are essentially slaves. The difference between us is, that our slaves are hired for life and well compensated; there is no starvation, no begging, no want of employment among our people, and not too much employment either. Yours are hired by the day, not cared for, and scantily compensated, which may be proved in the most painful manner, at any hour in any street in any of your large towns. Why, you meet more beggars in one day, in any single street of the city of New York, than you would meet in a lifetime in the whole South. We do not think that whites should be slaves either by law or necessity. Our slaves are black, of another and inferior race. The status in which we have placed them is an elevation. They are elevated from the condition in which God first created them, by being made our slaves. None of that race on the whole face of the globe can be compared with the slaves of the South. They are happy, content, unaspiring, and utterly incapable, from intellectual weakness, ever to give us any trouble by their aspirations. Yours are white, of your own race; you are brothers of one blood. They are your equals in natural endowment of intellect, and they feel galled by their degradation. Our slaves do not vote. We give them no political power. Yours do vote, and, being the majority, they are the depositories of all your political power. If they knew the tremendous secret, that the ballot-box is stronger than 'an army with banners,' and could combine, where would you be? Your society would be reconstructed, your government overthrown, your property divided, not as they have mistakenly attempted to initiate such proceedings by meeting in parks, with arms in their hands, but by the quiet process of the ballot-box. You have been making war upon us to our very hearthstones. How would you like for us to send lecturers and agitators North, to teach these people this, to aid in combining, and to lead them? " March 4 1858 from the Senate floor

This does not match Gary Miller's post in either intent, content or nature.

Ed Buckner

Carlos Ponce quotes, accurately so far as I can remember, an excerpt from the King Cotton speech Hammond delivered, though of course Hammond's talk was substantially longer than just that excerpt. Nevertheless, it's nice to see, for once, Ponce offering serious commentary. However even the excerpt shows some parallel thinking between Hammond and Miller, with both convinced that the poor inevitably deserve their fate (thereby providing the necessary "mud-sill" class as Hammond saw it). Miller did not, unlike Hammond, champion slavery, but he certainly says or implies, as Hammond did, that the deserving rich are there because of their good decisions. Any who'd like to read all of Senator Hammond's famous speech can go here-- http://civilwarcauses.org/King%20Cotton%20speech.htm

Carlos Ponce

"However even the excerpt shows some parallel thinking between Hammond and Mille..." No comparison.

Ted Gillis

These two fools are still stringing together their own brand of nonsense and false outrage.

Carlos Ponce

Which of their points do you disagree with, Ted? Is there ANYTHING Pende Joe has done to help this country or Americans? Please list. And the rest of you Bidenistas feel free to contribute.

Ed Buckner

Holly never, ever takes seriously any kind of a reasonable reply, so this is not for Holly. But for anyone actually interested in the real progress brought about by the real prez, try this: https://oliverwillis.com/joe-biden-accomplishments-the-full-list/ And, again, no need to expect anything but bluster and blarney, or worse, from Holly and friends.

Ed Buckner

Well, everyone, you'll have to admit: I did predict that Holly wouldn't actually read much of the list nor respond intelligently to any of it. Not, I'll admit, very hard to predict--but I'm nevertheless satisfied to be proven, again, right about the vapid Holly. (And, BTW, I'm not claiming to have produced the list--at least a couple of the items out of the 104 are dubious, IMNHO. But at least I can read.)

Paul Sivon

He defeated Trump in the election, saving the country from the death spiral of hate. Of course the GDN Troll keeps hating along and seemingly can not be saved.

Ed Buckner

Right you are, Paul Sivon. If you're looking for information on Biden accomplishments (for discussions with reasonable people, not with the mindless trolls you run into on this forum), try this (already posted here, but stuff gets lost)-- https://oliverwillis.com/joe-biden-accomplishments-the-full-list/?

Carlos Ponce

So sad that those who pretend wisdom cannot see the truth.

Bailey Jones

Based on how out of date these bullet points are, I'm guessing the news still travels to Utah by stagecoach. But hey - look at what's not being written about here - Hunter's laptop, Ukraine, fake election fraud, fake COVID conspiracies, fake Biden dementia conspiracies, and they got through a whole letter without using the word "socialism". Other than a little race-baiting (and how could they resist?) this letter is mostly about policy. That's pretty great.

Gary Miller

The first page of Biden good decisions is awaiting the first entry. Good decisions of Trump are already a book.

Ed Buckner

104 entries--and that's only in none months. Bluster and rant that these don't work if you wish, but you have no credibility unless you can actually explains why not. For example, the first one fails, according to Holly, because the problem persists. But Holly ignores, as always, complexity and nuance: did the agreement Biden managed improve the situation, even if it didn't end the problem. Maybe you can do better than certain simpletons. https://oliverwillis.com/joe-biden-accomplishments-the-full-list/

Ed Buckner

CORRECTED: 104 entries--and that's only in nine months. Bluster and rant that these don't work if you wish, but you have no credibility unless you can actually explain why not.

Carlos Ponce

No accomplishments in the link you posted, Ed Buckner.

Ed Buckner

This post from Holly is more like what we're used to: empty airy assertion without even the pretense of any supporting logic or evidence. 104 accomplishments in 9 months, dismissed in far less than 9 minutes by the acolyte of a professional grifter, who teaches his followers not to engage or argue but to deflect and dismiss, just calling anything you don't like or agree with "fake."

Carlos Ponce

"empty airy assertion without even the pretense of any supporting logic or evidence" That sounds typical of an Ed Buckner post. Your link as as useful as running a snail in a horse race.

Ed Buckner

Holly demonstrates quite clearly why he is quite smart to duck debating against me via Zoom, as I've challenged him to do--and my challenge still stands. Holly, aka Carlos Ponce, lacks the information AND the debating skills to even make a respectable showing. C'mon, Holly--let me prove it! It'll be fun. (Well, OK, for me, anyway.)

Carlos Ponce

Ed Buckner, Remember Rule 1.

Carlos Ponce

Ed Buckner, "ease his pain".

Ed Buckner

Holly tries to rebut my charge that he posts "empty airy assertion"s by posting still one more empty airy assertion. Similar to the schoolyard taunts that Holly has never been able to transcend. (He came close, momentarily, in re James Henry Hammond, but then he lapsed back into mere assertion instead of argument.)

Carlos Ponce

The Atlanta Troll posts again!

Bailey Jones

Yes, America will survive Biden. We (barely) survived 4 years of Trump's anti-competence; we can surely survive 4 years of Joe's incompetence.

Carlos Ponce

God will take out the incompetent Pende Joe.

Ed Buckner

You'd think that Holly, allegedly a believer in such things, would recognize that everyone dies, not just the politicos he doesn't like.

Charles Douglas

The authors of this OP-ED really lined the failures, and foul-ups of China Joe's lack of knowledge and inexperience up like nothing I would have expected! I mean this was beautifully articulated!

The only thing I would jam in there would be that CHINA JOE used a drone strike to kill a bunch of Afgan kids and tried to "play" it off like they were "ISIS TERRORISTS" until someone reported the truth. Then they came clean about the whole incident, also don't think I read in this article about France calling their Ambassodor home because Joe China "back-stabbed" them on a submarine deal with Australia and Great Britain! Other than that... these authors hit it out the park describing how these inepth LIBERALS..have torn this once proud, strong nation down to almost nothing, and into being the laughing stock of the world with nobody trusting them!

I wonder if Joe China is paying the relatives of those kids he killed in Afghan with that drone strike the millions he is trying to pay the illegals breaking our laws by sneaking across the border? One of their supporters say the authors of this OP-ED are lying. Now you can see the depth, of decency, and honesty, which have been eradicated from the souls of many among us who will lie, to the last trying to defend what they already know is indefensible!

Joe China is an old man incapable or being the leader of a bingo club, let alone the leader of the greatest country in the world! This is what the lying LEFT wanted. They were willing to kill, steal, destroy, & tear-down the greatest democracy ever,..just to satisfy their hunger for control, and their unquenchable thirst for power! They were willing to engineer an old run-down ex KKK affiliated racist, who hates African-Americans & Hispanics ....into the Oval Office to tear-down what others have worked, sweated, sacrificed, and died in order to build up!

I can't help but believe that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, MLK, Thurgood Marshall, & Caesar Chavez, must be turning over in their respective graves now in disgust at the systematic & intentional destruction of all they sacrificed for in order to leave as a LAGACY ..to humanity!

Many years ago, when I was operating in my first career, an old petro-chemical worker told me something which I carried with me all my life. He said, " Young man, It is okay to think you are smart,....as long as you don't run around thinking everybody else is a ..D** Fool!" Somebody need to relay this tip for living to the Radical Left!

Ted Gillis

I'm not going to list anything for you Carlos. I post comments in the "Readers Comments" section. We don't take instructions from you, and you're not a school teacher anymore. You go sit down for a change.

Ted Gillis posts: "I'm not going to list anything for you Carlos. "

Of course not. We all know why.[rolleyes]

That's weird, Mr. Scoggin. I looked in my Funk-n-Wagnalls and it just says, "Socialist--someone who disagrees with Gary Miller."

Gary Miller

A socialist is someone who thinks he can spend your money smarter than you.

Carlos Ponce

"A socialist is someone who thinks he can spend your money smarter than you."

Interesting... a THIEF thinks the same way.

Ed Buckner

Well, that certainly makes me a socialist, then. Just send me a check, Gary M.

Carlos Ponce

Up to $450,000 given to any illegal who claims their "child" was removed from them.

Three reasons for removing a child:

1) The person was not the child's parent.

2) The parent was physically abusive to the child. I guess Democrats would say a few beatings won't really hurt the kid.

3) The parent had a warrant and was prison bound. I guess Democrats either want the perp set free or throw the child in prison too.

What's next, will the Bidenists reward rapists, murderers, arsonists, etc. ?

Lisa Windsor

The Letters to the Editor section of this newspaper has turned into nothing but adult daycare for stupid, old white people who have nothing better to do but sit in their lazyboys and hate everyone. Grow up! You got everything in life that you deserve. Nothing more, nothing less. It doesn't take much of a brain to regurgitate problems. If you really care about social issues, spend your time working on positive solutions.

Ed Buckner

Ms. Windsor has a point. In my defense, I do indeed spend time and money actually addressing and working towards solving real social problems--but my bantering with ill-informed trolls are here is nothing more than a game, and I know that. I do, however, deny that I hate anyone.

George Laiacona

How does the idea of Atheism and the devil have anything to do with the the negative comments concerning our President?

Carlos Ponce

The DEVIL is in the details, George Laiacona.

Ed Buckner

As an atheist, I can see no connection at all. I know devout Christians who support Biden and have also known some atheist Trumpers. Biden appears to be a devout Christian himself, though no one can really know. Some people who claim to be devout Christians cannot even spell "Holy Spirit" correctly, for example.
