So, How Out Of Touch IS Biden?

Let’s be clear right out of the gate here. I’m not going to talk about how Biden can’t remember his middle name, or who he’s married to. I’m talking simply about his policies here, and how they mesh with the feelings of the country.

Now, having said that, I’m fully aware that polls are really the evil genius behind the curtain in our country at the moment. The politicians that follow them and change their direction like a wind chime in a hurricane are useless. They never vote their convictions. In fact, most politicians don’t even have convictions any more. Which is one reason I LOVE people like my Senator, Krysten Sinema, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. They at the very least do have conviction and stick to it. I admire that.

So, here we go. Joe Biden wants to spend trillions of dollars on a bunch of stuff. What kind of stuff? Things like climate change, critical race theory, what should be taught at school versus what should be taught at home. He wants to spend money like crazy…do Americans agree or disagree with him on that?

Well, let’s look. As far as climate change, while about 40% say it’s a big, big deal, almost 60% say that climate change isn’t going to effect their lives in any way during their lifetime. Now, that’s coming from the unwashed masses that don’t have much in the way of unbiased education. It’s been more like indoctrination you’d find in China.

How about another topic? 52% of Americans now feel they disagree with the overall spending of $3.5 trillion, and don’t want Congress to pass the spending bill. That’s a majority that feels we are spending too much, and that they want to see us cut social spending to get our budget back in line, and they blame the inflation rate (now hovering around 5.6% for the month) as the culprit. That’s gotta be a slap in the face to Jokin’ Joe.

Need more proof? 81% of whites, 81% of blacks, and 87% of Hispanics believe that the best place for kids to learn to take pride in their ethnic or racial identity is at home. That means they don’t want ethnic or racial identity to be taught in schools. So much for critical race theory! Not only that, 70% of whites, 69% of blacks, and 70% of Hispanic think the schools these days pay too much attention to the differences between ethnic and racial groups and not enough to what they have in common. Again, that flies in the face of critical race theory. 85% of whites, 84% of blacks, and 78% of Hispanics will go a little further saying it is absolutely essential for public schools to teach kids… that whatever their ethnic or racial background, they are all part of one nation.

Oh, but there’s more! A recent poll found that 80% of respondents opposed using classrooms to promote political activism, 74% opposed teaching that white people are inherently privileged and people of color are inherently oppressed, and 69% opposed schools teaching that America was founded on racism and is structurally racist.

OK, let’s move on from schools. Joe Biden campaigned last year that he could “unite a divided America”. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans have lost faith in him. 64% of the country says we are more divided now than we were under Donald Trump. Only 11% think Biden has kept his promise on this one.

Let’s look at immigration. Rasmussen Reports does a weekly index on the subject. They likened 100 as the baseline number that says the laws are right in line with where they should be. If they are over 100, it means that we need looser immigration laws, and below 100 means we need tighter immigration laws. Currently, for the week of September 27-30, the Rasmussen Reports index dropped from 89.6 to 88.9, a drop of 7/10 of a point in just one week. That means Americans don’t feel Biden is doing enough to keep illegals out of the country, and they want to see more done to tighten immigration policies. That flies in the face of Biden’s open door policy on our southern border.

Do any of these polls mesh with Joe Biden’s view of America? I’d say it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, Hispanic, Republican, Democrat, educated or not. Most Americans don’t view the programs Joe Biden is touting as anything that we need to be doing. Here we have a guy that says he can bring people together, but what he’s actually doing is tearing the country apart with his ideas. That in my world is a very dangerous man.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Critical Race Theory Losing Support

Oh, it’s not losing support among the liberal snowflake socialist left. They love calling America a racist nation that is being held back because of White supremacy. They can’t wait to indoctrinate your kids and grandkids with the notion that everything that has happened in this country has happened solely because White Americans have done so on the backs of black and brown minorities (not to mention the Native Americans!)

The problem is, America isn’t buying it.

Far less than the 47% of Americans who identify themselves as “Democrats” believe that Critical Race Theory should be taught in schools, regardless what the American Federation of Teachers, and the National Education Association think. Only 39% of Americans, according to a new Harvard University study, believe that CRT belongs in the classroom. A whopping 61% say it shouldn’t enter our country’s education system at all.

And there is the crux of the problem. You have on several issues, a small minority of racially motivated and biased people that are screaming for everything from Critical Race Theory to be taught to reparations be paid for something that happened about 165 years ago. No one that was effected by slavery is alive today. Not the White folks that held slaves, not the Black folks that were slaves. And while America undoubtedly has in our past, shown a tendency toward racism, that tendency has been chopped to it’s lowest level ever.

In fact, if you want to get downright real about it, reverse discrimination, and reverse segregation is taking hold in the African American community. They are the ones that are demanding that there is a separate graduation ceremony for White students and Black students. They are the ones that want segregated housing. And here I thought we fought this battle back in the 1960’s and Lyndon Johnson created a Civil Rights law that basically said we were all equal and one. Did I miss a memo somewhere along the way?

If you want to get right down to it, the whole White supremacy argument is a bunch of hogwash being foisted on the American public by a bunch of people that don’t think they are getting enough attention. So, you get a group like Black Lives Matter that steps in a screams every time any police officer, of any color shoots a Black person. You don’t hear the same thing when a police officer of any color shoots a White person. It basically goes unnoticed.

In the meantime, you’ve got the BLM co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, resigning from that group simply because they had been given a boatload of donations in the last year and she went out and bought herself a total of four houses in California and Georgia. The most recent purchase was for $1.4 million. And if you want to talk about race, let’s just throw this in. Those houses? They are in neighborhoods that are 88% White, and 1.8% Black. One might take from that Cullors has pretty well reaped the rewards of being an activist. Apparently, that’s not a bad way to make a living!

Critical Race Theory is just that. It’s a theory. It’s out there like outer space aliens visiting Earth. It’s out there with the Flat Earth Society. You can believe anything you want. Let’s just make a commitment that we teach our kids facts. And while America may have had racial components in the past, let’s also remind them that it was the Democrats in the South that fought against the Civil Rights bill that Lyndon Johnson put forward. It was also the Republicans that helped free the slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865. Democrats were against it.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
