Texas and Mississippi decided this week that they had enough with Biden’s 200 page COVID plan that already is way off track. They’ve decided that they are going to go their own way and remove the mask mandate, and open everything back up…100% back up.
Now, Tate Reeves, Governor of Mississippi, and Greg Abbott, the Governor of Texas didn’t do this because they were tired of Biden’s already failures in his “cure” for the Coronavirus. They did it because they have seen the number of cases, the number of hospitalizations, the number of deaths in their states drop, as the number of people that had taken the vaccine increased.
Was that the right move to make? Well, it depends on who you ask. Talk to folks in Mississippi or Texas, and most of them will say yes. Talk to President Joe Biden, he has another thought. He thinks their “neanderthals”. Actually, Biden called it “neanderthal thinking”. It’s the same thing as Hillary Clinton’s “deplorable” remark. It’s a slam at anyone that doesn’t agree with the left. Biden is basically saying that HE knows best what is best for you, and one way or another, HE is going to enforce it.
Except he can’t.
Unless Congress passes a law that it’s illegal to be out of your house without a mask on, it’s just a Biden wish list. Oh, he can ASK you to do it. He can write another Executive Order saying he WANTS you to do it. But it’s up to the Governors in every state if THEY want to do it or not. I thought we learned that back in the 9th grade, but apparently Joe Biden must have skipped school back that day (so did Donald Trump by the way).
Frankly, calling anything “neanderthal thinking” is pretty stupid. Now, I get why the reference. Biden was alive back then and probably on occasion dated a neanderthal or two. But to come out and make slurs and comments like that certainly isn’t going to bring the country together.
Speaking of that, let me veer off topic for just a minute. I’m getting the sense the Biden administration isn’t really interested in “working across the aisle” much any more. At least that’s the tone I’m getting from watching Jen Psaki, the White House Press Secretary. She’s really not interested in listening to anything but the Biden company line. And it doesn’t appear that Joe Biden having moderate Republicans into the Oval Office for coffee is doing much either. Just after meetings like that, he swears up and down that he’s going to get a COVID bill that he wants, WITHOUT Republican support. Doesn’t sound much like working across the aisle to me.
And yet, it’s ok to call Reeves and Abbott guilty of “neanderthal thinking”. So, is it ok for us to call some of the president’s proposals to pay off the huge bills that liberal cities have racked up because of all of these “Defund the Police” riots that have gone on, is it ok to call that neanderthal thinking? Just askin’!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
