It probably depends on whether or not really committed big government socialists put their foot down. Depending on how they design the bill, can they really get with the left wants at 2.2 billion or whatever it is? I recently wrote a newsletter that said there are no moderates here. It’s a choice between the timid big government socialist and the bold big government socialist and then Manchin turns right around and proves what I was saying. There’s no reason to be for $2.2 trillion. I think I saw a number this morning that Joe Biden is at 18% approval in West Virginia. That means that the people Joe Manchin represents have a 5-1 opposition to Biden. The whole thing tells you that the Washington power structure is desperate to get all of this done before the Republicans take over as they almost certainly are going to in the next election and I don’t know yet how it’s all going to come out. We don’t know what Sinema will do. Does having people come into the ladies room and stand outside your stall while you go to the bathroom, is that intimidator or an infuriator?


First of all, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in the middle of the great depression. There were millions and millions of Americans who wanted to work but couldn’t find a job. Where now in a period where every time you turn around, businesses tell you they can’t find workers. We have a huge logjam of shipments coming into the U.S. because they are not enough truck drives. So, in the middle of this labor shortage, what Joe Biden wants to do was to take 1.6 million assuming that the right number whatever staff told him. Another 1.6 million and put him on a government payroll doing something when they are not in the private sector doing jobs that already exist. This is just one more example of the kind of madness we are dealing with in the administration that can’t control the border, can’t control inflation, can’t produce energy and going to have a mess at Christmas when all these toys and all of these people want are still stuck on ships sitting off the coast of California because they can’t unload them. It’s truly madness.


It is exactly what you said earlier, big government socialist have to check out what you do at school boards, check out what you do in the military, now they want to check into your wallet. These people want total control over your life so they can decide, so they have the power. If you like bureaucrats running your life, you have found a party that is eager to do that.
