Senate Democrats make democracy reform first bill of new majority
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 5 Comments • 4 Likes • 18 minutes ago
“Senate Democrats are making a sweeping democracy reform package the first bill they plan to introduce after taking back the majority.”
Where did this come from? Who decided democracy needed reforming? After touting overwhelming evidence that the last election was secure, free of fraud, and allowed more people to vote than ever before, Democrats have unilaterally determined that the democratic process needs to be reformed as...
There Is No Way That History Will Be Kind To Donald Trump

It has been four years since Republican elites sanctimoniously derided the liberal "coastal elites," the "libtards" in pink hats, the media and urban dwellers generally for failing to "listen" to the "real Americans" in "flyover country" who voted for Donald Trump. Well, I've been listening....
Trump supporters threatened state Capitols but failed to show

“A huge law enforcement presence and the quick arrests of U.S. Capitol rioters dampened enthusiasm, sources said.”
Not sure what to think about the no-show. I wasn't very convinced of a plot to show up at all 50 state capitols to begin with. Maybe they were deterred by the heavy security or maybe there was never an intent in the first place. After the events of the 6th, I think a lot of people had cold...
Biden gives DOJ green light to resume Obama-era 'slush fund' payouts to liberal groups
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 3 Comments • 3 Likes • 29 minutes ago
“No private lawyer could give away a client's settlement money, and no government lawyer may do so either.”
President Biden plans to use the Dept. of Justice to launder public money through lobbyists to make political donations to his political allies. No doubt the recipients of this prosecutorial largess make healthy political donations.

““Nobody is going to be deported in my first 100 days,””
There is a migrant caravan which left Honduras on Friday and is steadily making it's way to the US border. A migrant traveling with the caravan told a reporter he was headed to the U.S. because soon-to-be President Joe Biden is "giving us 100 days to get to the U.S." It only makes sense. People...

Electric Cars Are Better for the Planet - and Often Your Budget, Too
Via: Bob Nelson • The Beacon • 128 Comments • 3 Likes • 3 hours ago
“New data published Thursday shows that despite the higher sticker price, electric cars may actually save drivers money in the long-run”
Trying to compare electric to gasoline is difficult. Gasoline is hugely subsidized - something like eighty or ninety percent of its pump price. You pay for your neighbor's gas-guzzling pickup twice: once at the pump, and then in environmental clean-up.
