Biden's 15 Day One Executive Orders

One thing I am glad he's doing is extending the CDC eviction protections order and student loan order but there is a massive problem there people aren't realizing.

The pausing of debt accumulates interest and you pay interest on accumulated interest, unless they paused that too.
I don't know how that even works now with companies.

When covid hit the fan, every bank and credit card and utility company was saying they were accepting delays or cutting 24% credit card fees to 10%. CC fees being cut are easy to understand, but for delayed payments does anyone know what the general trend was?

1. Monthly payment forgiven

2. Monthly payment delayed with no extra interest tacked on

3. Monthly payment delayed but interest still accrues and you just didn't know it. So at some point a person required to pay back the loan will get hit with one giant payment due

Oh so NOW they care about small business, after this year. Give me a fucking break lol
No kidding.

Everyone at the beginning said this when only the giant corporations and gas stations were allowed to be left open. I get it that some places were more care free about lockdown, but in many metro areas, there were big lockdowns - even now.

Doesn't even make sense. How the hell does KFC stay open the whole time, but important stuff like opticians and physical therapy clinics would be required closed.

dostoevsky teaches you everything you need to know about privilege

it's fundamentally wrong and stupid, marginalizes and compartmentalizes people until they are controlled or dead

To the privileged, equality feels like oppression.
This is not equality this is equity which is ridiculous because it is based on the concept that race is more important that class for example. There are a ton of white people in the US who barely survive. Men have the highest sucide rate because they do not know any other way anymore as well.

So to deny men and white people these support or rather getting discriminated is not a good thing. You do not deserve better treatment because you were born as a women or black or whatever.

aww, you felling marginalised?

cute

I am not american and the fact that you are ok with discrimination tells me everything about you I need to know

It doesn't even make sense any way your look at it - even if government wants to hand out subsidies.

If government wants to offer assistance based off blanket group numbers, the pecking order in terms of money jobs education is:

1. Asians
2. Whites
3. Latinos
4. Blacks
(I forget where Natives fit in)

So if government wants to make it easy and do a blanket approach, why are Asians part of the financial help? Technically, they should get the least or none if they rank #1 in demographic/finance surveys.

It's not race, it's class -- as always in politics.

The notion that Biden is restoring power to marginalized races or ethnicities is simply theater. What these policies do is merely to extend the mostly white, generally affluent managerial class which profits heavily off of the business of correcting "systemic" problems and which uses the topic as a weapon against their sole enemy, the poorer or rural whites that they hate. The grandchildren of those like Biden will simply have better shots at cushy but meaningless jobs as diversity officers or consultants, and nothing else changes except that black people continue to dupe themselves in large number into being a mere political tool in a class war.

5. President-elect Biden will sign an Executive Order to revoke the prior Administration’s orders setting out an unlawful plan to exclude noncitizens from the census and apportionment of Congressional representatives.
I don't understand how this is unlawful. Congressional representatives are supposed to represent citizens. Not "people". In terms of distributing resources, money for services and infrastructure, etc, sure it makes sense to include all "people". But not for representation.

How is that different from university quotas at US universities to boost racial diversity in the campus?

You ask that as though those are a good thing. They aren't and they are no different.

Again, they aren't about equality. They are about equity.

Hopefully the critical race theory and forced equity is just bullshit to fire up his base.

some of the stuff in there is fine, but the woke stuff is gross. Forced equity and diversity quotas are always untenable.

Wants to raise minimum wage to 15 an hour

Also,

Wants to help small businesses.

LMAO.
Super easy.

All you got to do keep all the workers employed is just jack up the price!

Just ignore all the hot deals and $1 super promos at grocery stores. And don't worry about fast food joints going nuts with promos and app deals.

BROWN PEOPLE, the president.

Who cares about recessions, as long as we have immigrants we're good.

It was really funny seing my own country with record high immigration numbers in 2020. Somehow the socialist party managed to import more people during a global pandemic than any other year. And I'm suposed to somehow believe this is beneficial for my country.

advocates of critical race therory are straight up Josef Mengele. Some of these people see white people as not human and dämons Some think white people are lacking empathy because they lack Melanin and so on. Critical race therory is fucking racist

Oh, your from one of those countries that crow about the Paris agreement but repeatedly fail to meet your targets.
I never said I am happy with our government or its performance in ecological matters. I am not. I have never voted CDU on a federal level and I most definitely never will.

So just to be clear, you are happy that the U.S.A has joined an accord your own government has decided is a waste of fucking time, and a economic drag.

With allies like you, who needs enemies :pie_eyeroll: :messenger_tears_of_joy:

So you want to vote for the greens who said Die ZEit der Freiwilligkeit ist vorbei?

Sorry but given Germany NO Political party is electable They are completly ignorant of peoples views and opinions. Be it on the right or left side or this terrible mess called SPD and CDU. We are completly fucked in Germany, We also have one Vovid scandal after the next one already.

PS: We in Germany pay with a wide lead the most enegery costs because these stupid idiots want to put up Windwheels everywhere while the only realistic solution would be nuclear power to archive the NO CO2 goal

Yeah, no one on the 'clean energy' brigade ever talks about Nuclear here either. It's utterly ridiculous.

Nuclear is what this world needs but the environmental brigade has pretty much wrecked any meaningful discussion and progress to be had on the science. The technology can be improved to make it safer and easier, but they'll still hold onto their Chernobyl's.

Why, do you live in one of the countries that's going to get American taxpayer money for "climate adaptation programs" while everyone continues to ignore the big Chinese elephant in the room?

Dont forget the big indian rhino right next to it that will have a bigger population than china soon.

This all looks nice if you just ignore all the facts and others Trump made. Or just common sense for that matter.

I mean what purpose other than feelings does rejoining paris Accords do?

Man I'm glad we got rid of that racist in the White House so we could implement...

*checks notes*
Race based policies and promotion of racism in federal workplaces.

They should stop promoting diversity and more rights for POC

They should start promoting equality where all people are treated the same. Thats the only thing you have to do. Ahh no... "Equality" has no value anymore under Kamala Harris, she only prefers "Equity"

You dont fight "racism" by introducing "more racism".

They already used "equity" instead of "equality" in the speech. They are not shy at all about what their plans are.
