Joe Biden said in the first “debate” that he was going to put his “Green New Deal” on the American public. This would eliminate oil, gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, coal, natural gas, propane gas, charcoal and only electric cars and trucks would be permitted.

He said the 45 million to 60 million that would lose their jobs could work for the government making solar panels and giant wind driven windmills (renewable energy) and rebuilding every structure so that they could use renewable energy.

This is what socialism does. It makes everyone dependent on the government.

Also, his taking tax loopholes away from the very rich and every corporation is going to cause massive layoffs and much higher prices of every business in what’s left of America.

If you put Biden in the White House he will die in office (he’s 78 years old now) and Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi will run this country.

Today’s socialist Democratic Party will take our guns, too.

Wow - it's rare to see a letter where every single sentence is factually incorrect. Well done, sir!

Craig Mason

Don’t even where to begin. A lot doozies in that letter.

Gary Scoggin

Bailey... nailed it.

Bailey... nailed it, again - his thumb!

JUNE 18, 2020 : As 45 million lost their jobs over the last three months, US billionaires grew $584 billion richer. In 3 months, the U.S. added 29 more billionaires while 45.5 million filed for unemployment.

Carlos Ponce

Old news, Jim. By August there were 13.5 million unemployed. By September 12.6 million. What's the holdup? BLUE STATES. But leave it up to Liberals to make this pandemic class warfare - a tenet of Communism.

Jim Forsythe

Robert was talking about the 45 million to 60 million unemployed, and I was pointing out that it already has happened.

Carlos Ponce

Old news, Jim.

Carlos Ponce

Time to update your information.

Jim Forsythe

45 Million has already happened. Now, we are still in bad shape. With the U6 rate at 12.40%, 19.4 million persons reported that they had been unable to work and the report from BLS, we have a lot of people in trouble. Eviction from housing units will start shortly.

In this month’s BLS report the EMPLOYMENT-POPULATION RATIO IS A SEASONALLY ADJUSTED 56.6 (+0.1 in September). THAT MEANS 43.4% OF PEOPLE 22 AND OLDER ARE WITHOUT A JOB. IF WE SUBTRACT THE ABOUT 14% OF THE POPULATION THAT RECEIVES SOCIAL SECURITY WE GET A RATE OF JOBLESSNESS AT 29.4%

Carlos Ponce

Things are getting better under Trump.

Carlos Ponce

Looks like the Liberals are still clueless.

domenico nuckols

Vote Joe. Vote early and often!!!!!!

Mike Zeller

Domenico, I'm going to take Trumps advice. I've already voted by mail, now all I have to do is go vote in person. [huh] [ohmy]

Carlos Ponce

Mike, if your ballot did not go through they will allow you to vote. If it shows up ift will be nullified if you voted in person. If your ballot did go through you will not be allowed to vote a second time.

Lorna Presswood

All of that is exactly correct. Don't expect liberals to listen or even google the actual statements, plans, and facts spewed by the Biden campaign on their website. People only get on facebook and twitter and things like yahoo to get their "news" and whatever a headline or instagram ad says, they believe. People are morons, followers, uneducated, focused on pop-culture and entertainment 24/7. Trump will massively, massively beat Biden. The only way Biden will even come close to winning is by their massive efforts to cheat with mail-in ballots. Even with their corrupt efforts Trump will win. All the media polls are wrong...very wrong. Don't believe a word of any of the polls and don't bother trying to change any minds. The liberal, "Trump deranged", uneducated, uninformed idiots will not ever think.

George Soros

LOL.

Jim Forsythe

Lorna Presswood, please enlighten me about the "massive efforts to cheat with mail-in ballots".

If I vote by mail I'm I cheating? If I meet all the qualifications to vote by mail, why should I vote in person?

The latest cheating reported is by the California's Republican Party who told state officials on Wednesday that it wouldn't comply with a cease-and-desist order demanding it stop operating unofficial ballot drop boxes.

You said "Trump will massively, massively beat Biden." how do you know this? Is the reason you think this is because you think that Trump is going to carry Democrat's votes and Independent votes?

Do you think Trump is going to carry all the swing states?

Charles Douglas

Ms. Presswood, I agree with you fully, you are on to something! Some people have eyes ..but they can't see, and have ears ..but they can't hear, ..even so all is not lost. They will understand what they cannot see, or hear on November 3rd, 2020.[wink]

Bailey asks, "1) Where Biden endorses the Green New Deal."

"Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face. It powerfully captures two basic truths, which are at the core of his plan: (1) the United States urgently needs to embrace greater ambition on an epic scale to meet the scope of this challenge, and (2) our environment and our economy are completely and totally connected."

Hey, I'm just a moron, follower, uneducated, focused on pop-culture and entertainment 24/7 - but always interested in learning new things. Since you have apparently read the Biden website, please point me to these items:

1) Where Biden endorses the Green New Deal.

2) Where Joe Biden's actual plan eliminates "oil, gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, coal, natural gas, propane gas, charcoal" and only permits "electric cars and trucks".

3) Where Joe Biden has plans for the government to hire 45 - 60 million workers to make solar panels and "giant wind driven windmills".

4) Where Joe Biden has plans to make "everyone dependent on the government."

5) How closing "tax loopholes away from the very rich and every corporation" is "going to cause massive layoffs and much higher prices."

6) Any proof that Biden will die in office.

7) Where Joe Biden has plans to "take your guns."

Please limit your response to "the actual statements, plans, and facts spewed by the Biden campaign on their website", with no "facebook and twitter and things like yahoo to get their "news" and whatever a headline or instagram ad says."

I await your edification. Heck, we all do.

Biden having Bozo Ororke as part of his team confirms his anti gun position. Including Spoiled brat Cortez's plan confirms much of the rest.

The Biden plan advocates for the use of clean energy and net-zero emissions through the use of investments in research and infrastructure, and incentives such as tax credits and leveraging the federal purchasing to buy American made clean energy items, such as electric cars and trucks. It doesn't "eliminate" anything, it incentivizes American industry to switch from carbon pollution to clean sources. For instance, there is currently no viable alternative to jet fuel, so the plan "will pursue measures to incentivize the creation of new, sustainable fuels for aircraft, as well as other changes to aircraft technology and standards, and air traffic management." It will not ban aircraft - as conservative talking heads suggest.

"Net-zero" doesn't mean that there are no carbon emissions, but that carbon emissions are offset by carbon sequestration. "Biden shares the Carbon Capture Coalition’s goal “to make CCUS a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals.” Toward this end, he will double down on federal investments and enhance tax incentives for CCUS. At the same time, to bring new carbon capture technologies to market, Biden will continue to fund carbon capture research, development, and demonstration."

For example - biofuels - like biodiesel - are mostly carbon neutral. They release CO2 when burned, but absorb CO2 during the growing process.

The Biden plan will be the greatest public investment in science since Apollo, creating:

- grid-scale storage at one-tenth the cost of lithium-ion batteries;

- small modular nuclear reactors at half the construction cost of today’s reactors;

- refrigeration and air conditioning using refrigerants with no global warming potential;

- zero net energy buildings at zero net cost;

- using renewables to produce carbon-free hydrogen at the same cost as that from shale gas;

- decarbonizing industrial heat needed to make steel, concrete, and chemicals and reimagining carbon-neutral construction materials;

- decarbonizing the food and agriculture sector, and leveraging agriculture to remove carbon dioxide from the air and store it in the ground; and

- capturing carbon dioxide from power plant exhausts followed by sequestering it deep underground or using it to make alternative products.

These aren't amazing goals - this is what every other scientific nation on earth is doing - and whoever does it best will lead the world's economy for the next 100 years.

But don't worry, Carlos, no one is going to make you stop burning your trash in the backyard, or insulate your house, or trade in your gas guzzling F-150. But the electricity you use will come from cleaner sources, the gas you buy will have a greater bio content, and the next time you buy a truck you'll find that the cheapest and most reliable vehicle is electric.

You are absolutely right, Carlos - the Bien plan will create millions of jobs to build the world's finest clean energy infrastructure. That's the whole point of the Biden plan - to lead the new world economy. But these aren't government jobs, these are private sector jobs. I can imagine the feds putting out bids for 100 electric charging stations in Galveston County. I know several Texas City engineering firms who would be happy to win that contract, and hire the people to do the job.

Carlos Ponce

What's "the Bien plan"?

Bailey Jones

Bien = good. I thought you would know that.

Carlos Ponce

I know what "bien" means. Not what in the world is the "Bien Plan"??????

Ted Gillis

Edification. I like that word Bailey.

Lorna, from the size of the early voting lines of what we have seen so far, it looks like Biden has already won. Even if Biden went back into his basement for rest of the campaign and the Trump enablers pulled out some kind of October surprise, the president would still not be able to overcome it. Trump has lost!

And there are reports that the White House orchestra has been heard practicing up on “Nearer, My God, To Thee”.

"Today's Democratic Socialist Party will take our GUNS too!" ......( Mr. Filidei) Mr. Filidei peep this out!

The District Of Columbia V Heller, case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on June 26, 2008, held (5–4) that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to possess firearms independent of service in a state militia and to use firearms for traditionally lawful purposes, including self-defense within the home.

Now here we as American Citizens are today able to possess a firearm ( gun ) in our homes on a 5-4 Supreme Court Vote! What does that mean? I will tell you. America is just one vote away from having our Constitutional rights to possess a firearm in our homes in order to protect ourselves and our families TAKEN AWAY by a Joe Biden Stacked Supreme Court! There are exist at this present time, FOUR LIBERAL JUSTICES on the High Court who are willing to STRIP Americans of their Second Amendment rights to own a gun!

That is what the HELLER decision is telling us! So if we are planning on doing something about that, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO SOMETHING! VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP! This is what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is about and I don't give a [censored] what they have listed on their website! He has publicly stated and I have him and his runningmate recorded saying they are against FRACKING and will get rid of FOSSIL FUELS and the jobs that goes with them!

They want to take My Aetna Insurance and your Blue Cross Insurance and go to a single payer government operated Insurance, Socialist style! They want to make EVERYTHING FREE, & teardown the WALL & OPEN the BORDERS! The LEFT thinks Conservatives are stupid! Look how the fake media is censoring the news about HUNTER BIDEN'S recent emails which have just been uncovered, exposing the Biden's to lying and influence peddling! The LEFT is unbelievable! They act as if they are working for China! I can't wait until TRUMP wins in November! I am going to take every chance I get to say, " I told you so!" " EVERY- CHANCE- I- GET!"
