Let's Not Reward Congress For Doing The Bare Minimum



Congress passed a bill to fund the government for two more months, but moved no closer to solving the other crises on our hands: raising the debt ceiling and avoiding a catastrophic debt default. #Colbert #Comedy #Monologue

  1. So Lying Biden has a approval rating of 33 percent. What does that tell you? It should tell you that the news is still getting through to people and they are seeing the corruption at huge levels. The American spirit will always kill communism and socialism. So he is speaking all this and talking bad about Manchin and Synema well think about this. They are not traitors to their party they just realize the majority of people are not supporting this bbb bill and how it would change America in a bad way not for good also they are saving their own party from themselves. If they got rid of the filibuster that would be catastrophic to their party because of the approval rating of Biden and because even if they federize elections the American spirit knows the truth and will vote the right way so their country is not destroyed. They know the midterms are going to be a red wave and 24 will be a republican president in there and without the filibuster any bill the Republicans write can be pushed through no matter what without the filibuster. So continue listening to Political genius like Stephen Colbert lol

  2. You all in here are clueless. You do realize you're getting played and learning from a Hollywood propaganda TV show? So I'm gonna receive my government knowledge from a clueless talk show host that is far left and has zero knowledge of politics lol. You all are hoodwinked and fooled by this propaganda. You all love paying the price you pay for gas? You love inflation? You love store shelves empty? You love your borders wide open letting unvetted people in and not to mention enough fentanyl in that would kill everyone in the u.s. yea 4000 lbs was seized? You love that unvetted Afghanistan immigrants are being flown to states in the middle of the night and taken to towns next to you? You are fooled. For a year there were no riots? For a year ppl were not dying from the riots? Wake up

    Some of you will die, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make! – Lord Trump
     @Justin Y.  Trump is evil. He ignored this virus until he couldn't ignore it…the steps taken have been deliberately slow to contain this virus, as the government has made huge financial gains in allowing particularly older, retired people to die…no more pay outs each month…voting, if still valid in this country…is our only peaceful,  legal recourse…voting 3rd party is the ONLY WAY to get real humans in power, rather than dynasty families and career politicians. When we realize the 2 parties we are divided over LOVE the division among us…then and only then may America be great again…

     @Justin Y.  Lack of knowledge of the deep state? I just accused our government of mass murder…I understand deep state…fact that you refuse to listen, only attack, says too much about you…clearly you haven't known hardship. Clearly none of this has impacted you negatively…you are part of the problem, offering zero solutions.

     @Justin Y.  Calling me stupid really helps your case…Trump has very limited brain power, as evidenced by his rambling, generally repetitive, toddler talks…although most of us are sorely undereducated, Trump really amazes me every time i listen to his banter. Trump did not close the borders in time, many flights to the USA brought sick folk here. Action wasn't taken until very late February, and by then 15 confirmed cases were more than enough to basically allow what amounts to airborn, quickly lethal AIDS《why this? (Because this virus mutates too fast to create an effective vaccine, which may never get made), upon the world. This is dangerous because common behaviors of common folk, such as shoulder to shoulder events, shopping and sardine packed working conditions, helped this virus along…even as people died in China daily…America went forward 2 full months wothout any concerns…then…rather than force the hands of state officials, and put the population through a 2 month quarantine,  we've been seeing states react, rather than prepare…and all at the natural stages this virus thrives on…complacency among enough of us to allow the spread to continue. You refusing to see this logic isn't a blight on my mental capacity, just proves you are as simple as our Lord Trump…and likely among those very few, who like many elites, don't even understand the plight of the masses, whom I speak for, in this contrived crisis…Trump is calm about the virus because he exists outside the bounds of common folk…Trump and other powerful people would never have to take the risk of infection seriously as they are all well protected by expendable servants or can at the least afford to continue living lavishly and distanced from peons such as myself. 9/11 was an inside job and this proves what I've feared since then…that the government can perform mass murder and the people will always just accept it, hire the next sociopath  in line, whichever of the 2 evil divisionary parties they aspire to dwell in…

    Our educational system is archaic. We could be educating everyone from home…there are no valid excuses for our current broken schooling, and no teachers need lose jobs…as the internet is an amazing communication device…

    Taxes are broken. Your dollar earned gets hit so many times…and we all just accept that blindly.

    Medicine is broken. My grandmother died because her selfish daughter needed cable tv more than grandma needed diabetes medicine…and millions suffer from the inability to afford insulin, despite that drug initially starting out as a gift to humanity from a generous genius, privatized by evil and greed, priced beyond reality for most.

    Our 2 party system is designed to keep us bickering…division keeps us docile enough to accept our own government conspiring to murder us, with our acceptance. 3rd party candidates are generally real humans…that care about other humans, even, gasp, total strangers and foreigners…

    We are all on the same damn spaceship…Earth. I judge character…not race, not whatever religion folks are born into. I am old…I am tired of seeing disaster after disaster get slow attention from government, as poor people die in thousands due to delayed or nonexistent help.

    It's about time the many take control, with votes, to dethrone the sociopaths that control us, play games with our very lives…

    When there are only voluntary homeless, when the janitor is paid living wage, when a high school graduate can earn enough in food service, or retail, to support a modest home and essentials, while creating a nest egg…when veterans are given the same care as Congress, Senate and other positions of highest power, rather than left to suffer and die, when the lowest paying jobs are enough to survive on, then and only then, can America boast of being great…

    As it stands…I feel most of us are born into lies we have no control over…It's well orchestrated, as my points are made clear in every satirical broadcast about the plight of the expendable masses, world wide…

    Do I want peace, equity and kumbaya? Yeah…I do…are there sociopaths in power oppressing the common folk…yeah…there are…have good Democrats and Republicans existed? Yes…they get blocked by evil at every turn, often resigning due to unbeatable corruption. Do I pity the very people I label simple? You bet I do…I want this planet to be a better place for most…not some…for all…if ever possible…

    This covid virus isn't done. It mutates too fast to pin it down with a vaccine…and we haven't seen the end of it because we, as a planet, would have to agree on a few ground rules to consider being a functional society.

    That's my 2 cents…some of it…take it or leave it. Most of us just exist and watch, lazily, rather than get directly involved in change. @soaringvulture  We don't seem to take note…we, the expendable masses, are being told to push through life ignoring this virus…it took ONE infection to start a Planet Wide Pandemic…and because we didn't quarantine from January 1st to February, we get to watch innocent and otherwise lives lost, daily…who are "we", in "we're in it together"? Certainly not the elite…they step on us to avoid harm…I'm furious with humanity as a whole…I'm furious we accept all this death and Trump's toddler talks…like a Ted talk without useful insight…

    Those of us suffering are many…while the privileged watch the show They created…when…when will the common folk unite against tyranny, through the only peaceful means we have…vote out career politicians and dynasty families in favor of fellow human beings, with consciousness and compassion for the lowest among us.

    We won't stop the cycle of abuse by trading Democrats and Republicans, two sides of the same evil, corrupt coin.

    Vote 3rd party…vote for real people, with flaws, that understand what struggle is…that have put time behind any of these so called essential, yet minimum wage jobs…

    This economy is screwed…always has been. The vast majority of work available is menial labor…food service, retail, janitors, grocers…a great many take their wages in government…which is far too big, complex and unsustainable…

    Until any job can offer a modest secure household, until the only homeless are those who volunteer to live "free"…until the pill giants are mandated to make life saving medicine reasonably priced…we are a selfish, horrid nation, divided by the very people that oppress us, yet too busy fighting amongst ourselves to take any useful action towards a better tomorrow for the MANY, not the FEW……

  4. Y'all wanted a leader! I wanted love. I have been betrayed, mocked, underestimated, and now you expect me to show ambition? My duty will be to lead like I have called to do. You doubt me bc you wish to cling to your money and your illusions of power, grandeur, and pride. What pride can any of you in D.C. truly claim as legislators? Your deficiency is not lack of character or lack of effort. You lack PROPER LEADERSHIP. My words are not meant as a slight to the executive branch. Don't fold! Seek me first

  5. I hate people who blame Biden for failing to do anything. What he could do with executive orders, he did. The vax roll out and even sending National Guard doctors to plague ridden anti vax states was within his power and guess what he did it without bragging about it every day.

  6. inter-generational USURY –abolished- our Republic in 1933 – –

    and –in case you still haven't noticed – – Rockefeller USURY pulled off its seven decades on the go – -Rockefeller RED China treason project – –

    please upgrade those files – –

  7. Fun fact, removing lead pipes could cause more harm than good. Because they're so old and difficult to find, any attempt at removal could cause them to seep more lead into waterways. The best thing to do is remove them as carefully as possible and in the mean time, treat them so they stabilize

  8. Most of Europe is entitled to things like those listed in the bbb plan and we're doing great. So I don't see what Manchin is afraid of. As for Sinema, is not clear that she's just happy with all the attention she's now getting? It's like the last kid who can't choose and every time he/she is asked they shyly say: "Oh.. I don't know."

  9. Thousands of ppl from all over the world jumping off the boarder who will provide basic need for these guys ?? What if I send some needy homeless to ur house every day and ask u not to close ur door

  10. Guess my life is being dedicated to fucking over Manchin and Sinema, since republicans are just openly mulling over coups or standing by while their colleagues do so, the linchpin in a functioning democracy is 2 people who's constituents already agree with the president.
    Make their lives hell then get rid of them.
    Much easier than trying to convince some hog in the Midwest ODing on Ivermectin to flip his senate seat.
