Joe Biden Absolves You All

After his vote-buying pledge to forgive student debt was decisively struck down by the United States Supreme Court, Joe Biden as decided to ignore that minor inconvenience and is out there pitching it again, meaning the current Democratic plan to hold the White House in 2024 is: 

1. Giveth

2. Taketh Away

3. Giveth Again

4. Repeat until re-elected

Scott, you’re correct, anyone that opposes this give away will be vilified by the left as heartless. However, I think the statistic was 87% of the population that is NOT going to receive this benefit.

How about instead of talking about how awful Biden is for giving OUR tax money away, we reach out to the 87% of voters that are getting stuck with the tab and incourage them to cast their ballot in response to this obvious unlawful presidential act.

What the heck makes ANYONE believe a president can do this? There is nothing that makes student debt subject to an executive order – or a demented president’s wishes.

AT THE VERY LEAST, Republicans should announce they are censuring this pervert and idiot, not by passing something in Congress, but by declaring it.

You’re absolutely right on this. This is a tactic by the Left to blame the Right for not giving them unqualified unmitigated unrestricted forgiveness of student loan debt. The President has no power to do that. Most of student loan debt is held by the government and Congress controls the purse. It could be done if Congress decided to do it, the creditor always has the power to forgive a debtor. Joe Biden does not have that power. So the way to counter this sneaky crap is to make loud declarations and take out ads that say … “The President… Read more »

Quote from LBJ ‘Give them everything, make the Republicans take it away’ Democrat cynicism at its finest.

Scott should have included the line before the absolution in the movie was “Harken to me you mediocrities, for I am your patron saint’ Which seems particularly apropos for Joe Biden.

I’m all about making borrowers do the right thing and pay off the debt they have incurred. But it’s kind of weird. Give billions of dollars to universities in the form of a loan to the students, and by fiat, just “erase” those loans off the books of the Treasury. So it’s kind of like printing money and just giving it to people, with the expectation that it would return to the Treasury. Knowing that the Treasury would be made whole over time, the Government continued it’s yearly taxation of everything, to pay for, roads, bridges, dams, power plants needing… Read more »

It sounds like you’re trying to get someone to explain/justify irresponsible spending. That’s not going to happen, there is no justification for irresponsible spending. However, simply because a great deal of irresponsible spending has happened and looks like it will continue to happen — Doesn’t mean legitimate spending should come to a screeching halt. As the pendulum swings further and further to maximum eccentricity a lot of good Conservatives are making a bad mistake when it comes to understanding this kind of thing. There’s a big difference between irresponsible spending and necessary spending. The problem is that the numbers are… Read more »

Read, noted and understand your comments, in particular, about war and war funding. I’ll create an small corner of the forum to continue my comments or clarifying questions for you.
I asked for opinions, comments, hoping at the very least, I’d get yours.
Glad I asked.

If you decide to move this discussion to the forum or member blog please post a link to it in a reply so that I and anyone else that’s interested in continuing doesn’t have to hunt for it. Thanks.

Got it. Will snap to it after I get home from work! FWIW it’s always good to read your posts. I learn a lot from reading different perspectives.

Thanks, I wish that like you everyone else would bear in mind that my posts are my opinions from my perspective too. When I have something to say it’s generally a thing I’ve looked into in depth and on which I have a carefully considered position. I don’t have a position on everything, there are many things I’ve not looked into and considered to a degree that I’m comfortable saying something about and I don’t. That doesn’t mean I’m always right. That doesn’t mean I think that my opinion is the only valid opinion. That doesn’t mean I’m “trying to… Read more »

You know, I go to click “read more” with anticipation…and a grin always come over my face when your posts expand, and expand…..and expand. The fact that you do put considerable thought in your posts is what makes them worth reading. At least to me. My hope is someday I’ll provide a perspective on a topic someone else might consider meaningful. My original post which kicked off this thread was typed out of real frustration, and my tie into Ukraine was probably best left out. I didn’t, but hey, I learned some new perspectives in reading the follow up posts.… Read more »

I am so glad to see Zo again, and actually hear him speak. On the Backstage recording, his voice is absent.

They fixed the Backstage audio if you want to go watch it now. I didn’t watch it until they did because what Zo has to say is important to me. Even when I don’t agree with him but that’s seldom. It was a technical glitch that has been resolved now.

Higher education – paid for by taxpayers. Earn much more money – find ways to decrease tax responsibility, snivel every time taxes are “raised on the rich.” Yep. Makes do-do sense to me.

The core issues the guys did not address here, but have elsewhere, include; 1) the school of life (aka “hard knocks”) says “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch!” In the end you are going to pay for your education or your indoctrination somehow. 2) John Adams and others pointed out for a nation to be governed by the people as sovereign, those people have to be moral, religious, or virtuous. The prime virtue in my mind is Honesty, followed closely by Facing Reality and Accepting Responsibility. Clearly too few people on either side of the political aisle… Read more »

“… people have to be moral, religious, or virtuous.” John Adams didn’t say that. He said “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  John Adams NEVER mentioned “virtuous” in that citation. He didn’t mention it because virtue is subjective and open to interpretation. The Left has made an art out of phony virtue. To the Left what they are doing in the name of virtue is as good as genuine moral and religious virtue because they say so. If “moral and religious” are not prerequisites then anyone… Read more »

I don’t know how it works, but you might consider looking into writing your own Substack articles. As others have pointed out, you have well-thought-out opinions on several issues of concern for our country.

April 18, 2024 8:06 AM

Thanks again Jennifer. I really appreciate it when you or anyone else takes the time to let me know I’ve hit my mark. A “thumbs up” vote doesn’t really tell me a whole lot and there are now enough people that I’ve pissed off (don’t care even a little bit) that the up and down vote count doesn’t really mean anything anymore. There are people in here that down vote anything I post just because they don’t like me and that skews the count. Screw ’em. To be perfectly clear, I’m not trying to slag on Walter here, he’s a… Read more »

I would very much like to see your stuff reprinted on a Substack account! Also, I truly get that you have concerns about dangerous people. I have seen such unhinged stuff, even on local sites, that I wonder sometimes if something weird has been put into the water supply… They can be amusing, but cringe-creepy at times, too. It will be interesting to see how BWC reacts to your plan – I don’t see a downside, but it’s proper to give them a “heads-up”. If you do decide to write essays apart from this site, please announce it! I’d like… Read more »

Steve, Not everyone who has student loans is a deadbeat! Please repent of that thought. I have been working and paying my loans for over 20 years; and am happy to pay them back MYSELF. Just like the stimulus checks; I don’t want the government to pay my debt; I did ask them to… I think it is a terrible idea to pay of these loans; terrible for the economy and terrible for the future. BUT, if they wipe out my debt, without me asking them to, what am I supposed to do… send my payment check anyway, until I… Read more »

Steve didn’t say all students with loans are deadbeats. The students that are not repaying their loans are deadbeats.

What Roadrunner NM said, in spades. Just because there are deadbeats under discussion doesn’t imply that YOU and everyone else who ever got a student loan is a deadbeat. Obviously people who take out loans and repay them are NOT in any connotation of the word “deadbeats”. If that were the case everyone who ever took out and paid back a car loan, a mortgage or any other type of loan would also be “deadbeats”. It’s not taking out a loan that makes you a deadbeat, it’s the willing refusal to pay it back that makes you a deadbeat. That… Read more »

There is a reckoning underway for colleges across the country. With the internet having the facility to expose us to better teachers, better curriculums, and less overhead to accomplish the feat, most of the brick and mortar destinations will fail. They’ll fail if a competitive market is allowed to occur. Democrats won’t let that happen without kicking and screaming. With the rise in tuition, approaching 6 figures a year in several institutions, the most precious thing in your life – your child – will surely be indoctrinated in leftist ideology, have wokeness inculcated into their mind, and be made to… Read more »

The whole point of a university is to SELL you an education that you can use to improve your life. It is a transactional situation. You buy such an education with the idea that the returns on the investment will far outweigh the costs. Some people are trying to BUY that product and are paying for it but not getting it. Others are buying something totally different and they’re doing it willingly so that they can feel good about themselves without doing anything to merit such an idea of superior virtue. Those “others” are paying tens, sometimes hundreds of thousands… Read more »
