  • Here's another problem that Biden's team doesn't understand-

    One in Five Young Adults Is Neither Working Nor Studying in U.S.

    Almost one in five young adults in the U.S. was neither working nor studying in the first quarter as Black and Hispanic youth remain idle at disproportionate rates.

    In the first three months of the year, about 3.8 million Americans age 20 to 24 were not in employment, education or training, known as the NEET rate, the Center for Economic Policy and Research said in a report. That’s up by 740,000, or 24%, from a year earlier, before many lost their jobs or opted to defer college enrollment as campuses shut down at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Inactive youth is a worrying sign for the future of the economy, as they don’t gain critical job skills to help realize their future earnings potential. Further, high NEET rates may foster environments that are fertile for social unrest.

      Probably hoping the extra unemployment benefits keep getting extended.

      Joe's in a tough spot with his infrastructure plan.

        With equity, there is no reason to work. You can just sit at home and do nothing and end up with the outcome of someone who actually goes out and works.

        Equality = equal opportunity
        Equity = equal outcome (at the expense of others)

          Tough spot? How soft our critique has become. It's utterly awful.

              • The Biden slogan moving forward should just be honest about the plan: we'll keep paying you to sit at home, just keep voting Democrat.

                This is Gangs of New York stuff. Straight up bribery for votes.

                      You serious here? If so, I'm not doing the work for you. Go watch Biden's creepy press conference from a few days ago. He talks about it in one of those weird segments where he's whispering.

                        I'm just curious if you consider the safety net buying votes, or if there's something specific you have issues with.

                            NY Post has an article. Evidently Psaki trying to deflect.

                            https://nypost.com/2021/07/04/psaki-...use-briefings/

                            The criticism of President Biden’s chief spokeswoman came after Friday’s press briefing, where Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki about a Politico report published last week alleging an “abusive” work environment in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, citing nearly two dozen staffers.

                              He did. The question is how long do you continue to do this? Everything is pretty much back open at this point. Sooner or later you have to pay the piper. The more this continues the bigger the impact on the back end.

                                • Psaki is more update to date with what is going on then Biden is. The flow of information from the administration overlords gets to Psaki before it gets to Biden, and some stuff probably never gets to Biden.

                                    I feel like constant high profile ransomware attacks, border crossing surges, and journos favorably covering Presidential ice cream cones are a new thing in the last 6 months. I wonder if these were not on the list provided by Joe to not attack?

                                    Psaki's attempt to turn the defund the police on to Republicans is the worst gaslighting attempt I've ever seen from that position. She has zero credibility.

                                        Russia hacking claims pose challenge for Biden

                                        He said cyber attacks on critical infrastructure were "off limits".

                                        "I looked at him and said how would you feel if ransomware took on the pipelines from your oil fields? He said it would matter," Mr Biden said,

                                        He went on to say that if Russia violated these "basic norms" the US would retaliate.

                                        The events of the last few days will test that claim.

                                        On Monday, Bloomberg reported that Synnex, a third-party provider used by the Republican National Committee (RNC), had been breached last week.

                                        In a statement, the RNC Chief of Staff Richard Walters said he did not believe the hackers had infiltrated its systems.

                                        The "supply chain" hack (where a company that provides IT functions to many other companies is hacked) followed another large-scale attack that was revealed on Friday.


                                        Apparently, Joe left the RNC out of the off-limits category. Can't wait to see our retaliation.

                                          well, you have to consider who we're talking about.....
                                          --The party that fought to the bloody end to keep their slaves.(to the tune of 600,000 Americans dead)
                                          --The party that instituted Jim Crow laws after losing their slaves.
                                          --The party that wants to tear down confederate statues of all of their past democratic heroes (without acknowledging they were democrats)
                                          --The party that wants to institute CRT, without mentioning the democrats involvement in the slave trade.
                                          --The party that makes heroes out of career criminals and career drug addicts.
                                          --The party that hates the American flag, and everything that it represents.
                                          --The party that hates the nuclear family
                                          --The party that says Men are not important in family life.
                                          --The party that says boys are girls, and girls are boys.

                                          So their rhetoric of blaming some groups of destructible, despicable behavior other than themselves has been standard operating procedure for over 160 years.

                                            I am still amused that Biden is trying to make a list of areas or industries that's off-limits for hacking. EVERYTHING SHOULD BE OFF-LIMITS JOE!

                                              • Another interesting observation from our Government-

                                                Lina Khan’s Power Grab at the FTC

                                                The new Chair snatches unilateral authority and rescinds bipartisan Obama-era standards.

                                                Independent federal agencies have power over American life that the Founders never imagined, and that reign is about to expand with a vengeance in the Biden era. Witness the unprecedented power grab engineered last week at the Federal Trade Commission by the new chair, Lina Khan.

                                                The events didn’t get much attention because the press cares more about politics than governance. But on a series of 3-2 votes, the Democratic commissioners turned agency tradition upside down and gave themselves vast new powers to harass business.

                                                The agency eliminated the long-standing role of the agency’s chief administrative law judge in presiding over fact-finding and rule-making. Now Ms. Khan, or someone of her choosing, will preside. The Democrats also killed the requirement that the FTC staff get a majority vote of the commission to start an investigation. Now only a single commissioner can sign off. Subpoenas can also fly at Ms. Khan’s discretion.

                                                The commissioners rescinded the bipartisan Obama-era FTC statement, adopted in 2015, that the agency follow antitrust law as it has evolved in the courts. This is a sure signal that the three Democrats are planning to dump the consumer-welfare standard for antitrust that has prevailed for decades. Instead the agency will replace it with some new standard it hasn’t specified. Also on the chopping block is the “rule of reason” the Supreme Court has applied to antitrust law for more than a century.

                                                This is the handiwork of Ms. Khan and Rohit Chopra, who is still a commissioner but has been nominated by Mr. Biden to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Ms. Khan is a 32-year-old academic who has no experience running anything. She helped write the October 2020 House Antitrust Subcommittee report on Big Tech and has called for breaking up large firms. Now she’s teeing up the FTC to stretch its powers in a way it hasn’t done since the 1970s and 1980s before it was rebuked by Congress and the courts.

                                                Ms. Khan and her academic ally Tim Wu, who now works in the White House, claim they are merely restoring proper antitrust law from the intellectual detour pioneered by the late, great Robert Bork. But they ignore that modern antitrust law, with its focus on economic analysis and consumer benefit, has also been nurtured by many others. They include scholars Phillip Areeda and Herbert Hovenkamp and Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.

                                                Ms. Khan appears to reject all of that. She writes fondly of railroad regulation, of all things, which was repudiated by Congress after demonstrable failure. She wants to apply the Robinson-Patman Act of 1936 to Amazon and other giants. That price discrimination law was long ago diminished by the courts with hardly a word of objection from Congress.

                                                Ms. Khan may feel she has the political wind behind her given the anti-Big Tech mood on Capitol Hill. Twenty-one GOP Senators voted to confirm her, including some upset with Big Tech for censoring conservative speech. But they voted to make her a commissioner before President Biden made her Chair—a decision he announced only after her confirmation. That was a clear break with tradition that a nominee for Chair be identified before a Senate vote.

                                                These Republicans may be under the illusion that Ms. Khan has only Big Tech in her sights. But the new powers she is claiming will give her authority to shoot at business in all directions. The FTC is supposed to be mainly an enforcement agency that polices bad practices, but Ms. Khan and her fellow Democratic commissioners want to expand its regulatory powers as well. Watch out for rules on privacy and data-collection for starters that will affect hundreds if not thousands of companies.

                                                The U.S. Chamber of Commerce awoke to criticize the FTC votes last week. But Republicans in Congress are still asleep.

                                                Wide awake is Amazon, which last week filed a petition with the FTC seeking Ms. Khan’s recusal from actions concerning the giant retailer. The petition includes a declaration from Thomas Morgan, one of the country’s foremost experts on legal ethics who was retained by a firm working for Amazon. Mr. Morgan recounts Ms. Khan’s extensive record of hostility to Amazon and thus her inability to fairly judge the facts of an antitrust case.

                                                “The Majority Staff Report in which Chair Khan played a large part in effect asserts that Amazon is guilty of violating the law,” Mr. Morgan writes. “In my opinion, in any future matter tried before the FTC, Amazon is entitled to decision makers who have a more open mind about those issues than Chair Khan would appear to a reasonable observer to have.”

                                                We have no special brief for Amazon and have criticized its dominance in the e-books market. But the point here is about Ms. Khan’s blinkered zealotry. Don’t expect her to take Mr. Morgan’s recusal advice, but the courts may come to a different conclusion. Meanwhile, American business should get ready. The Khan FTC is coming after you.

                                                        Would be a good option for those not working, dig some ditches, fill some pot holes, or tell the brainless to get vaccinated.

                                                                  Saying "push" lends itself to being taken in a negative connation.

Anyone that would have participated in FDR's New Deal would probably be dead by now as it started in 1933 and ended in 1939. IIRC, OMM is around 75 or 76 and our eldest member, so he would have been born around 1945.

We just sold our house and are living in a camper until the new house can be built. Not sure how they are going to find me. I just have a PO BOX at the moment. POBOX people matter too. Also, I have a few rental properties in persons names that do not live there. So the house is under my name, rented by another name and lived in by another name. Good luck.

Just a tad out of touch with reality.

                                                                                                    BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Approvals for companies to drill for oil and gas on U.S. public lands are on pace this year to reach their highest level since George W. Bush was president.

                                                                                                    That finding from an Associated Press analysis of government drilling data underscores President Joe Biden’s reluctance in the face of industry and Republican resistance to more forcefully curb climate-changing emissions from fossil fuels.

                                                                                                    The Interior Department approved about 2,500 permits to drill on public and tribal lands in the first six months of the year. That includes more than 2,100 approvals since Biden took office January 20. New Mexico and Wyoming had the largest number of approvals.
