Joe Biden has a win (of sorts)

The US Senate last night passed some long overdue gun reform laws, the toughest in more than 30 years, the laws would toughen up background checks for the youngest firearms buyers, require gun sellers to conduct background checks, (I think there is something like a 9 day timeframe where this is to happen), money is also there for stronger school safety in communities, as well as better mental health programs, on the other hand, the mostly conservative Supreme Court has loosened handgun limits, in other words, you can carry as many handguns as you want outside of the home, why, for your "personnel safety" Rolling Eyes, but of course as we all know so well, the only way to protect against violence is more guns, riiiighttt???

When I saw the title of this thread I thought "what, he fell up the stairs instead of down them?"

Did anyone see doddery ole' Joe's instruction sheet for a meeting about off-shore wind farms last week? He actually needs to be told in incredible detail what to do:

If it was anyone but Biden, you'd be complimenting the people who carefully planned the Agenda so that proceedings ran smoothly.

Actually I really liked the highlighted, capitalised bits the most.

YOU talk to the world leaders and YOU make small talk with them -

Agreed Exclamation

What the representative from SA doesn't realise is that all leaders, including our own are given their schedule protocols of what to do for every event they partake in on any given day.

The same person still dreams of a resurgent Trump in 2024...who btw also had detailed schedule protocols for his events when he was in Office.

Bad smell theory proved 100% correct.

So you think I shouldn't be allowed to comment on the Mildura train, a rotting corpse that you've dragged out with monotonous regularity on this board ever since I've been here - but on the other hand you're allowed to follow me to which-ever thread I comment on and put your priggish, sanctimonious spin on what I've said.

Hypocrisy, much?

You are of course entitled to your opinion, no matter how ridiculous or irrelevant.

The rest of us will be happy to see this subject progress as we head to the polls.

We will also be gratified to know that you’ve now ceased contributing to this ‘rotting corpse’ thread.

You don't speak for everyone on this board.

And contrary to what you think most people don't agree with you about the Mildura train.

Speaking of Joe Biden's confusion, nothing epitomises that more than his terminal craziness on oil policy - Forbes Magazine;

When it comes to energy policy, the Biden administration really needs to try to get its story straight. Everyone in America’s oil and gas business must be relieved to have made it to the end of what was without doubt the most confusing energy policy week in recent memory.

The confusion started on Wednesday, June 14, when President Joe Biden sent a letter to oil refiners accusing them of engaging in price gouging and demanding that they find ways to refine and produce more gasoline. It was in and of itself a confusing message given that Biden and his agencies have spent their 17 months in office doing everything they can to obstruct and impede the growth of the domestic oil and gas business.

As if to reinforce that reality, at about the same time the President’s letter was being made public, the Interior Department postponed yet another federal lease sale, one that would involve federal lands in New Mexico. It’s important to note that gasoline can’t be produced without the ability to drill for oil, and companies can’t drill for oil without first having a lease, a supply chain reality the Biden officials can’t seem to grasp.

Later that same day, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in an interview on CNN that “[Biden] is also asking, of course, for the oil and gas industry to increase supply as well by drilling more. They are about 100 rigs shy of what they were before Covid. They need to increase supply.” Again, companies can’t drill without leases, and the federal lands in New Mexico’s Delaware Basin lie atop some of the most prolific oil-bearing rocks on Planet Earth.

So, the current Secretary of Energy seems to believe that corporations are going to just invest billions in new drilling, production and refining capacity now, even though the federal government plans to shut them down within the next 5 to 10 years. That amounts to the “carrot and stick” approach to government, only without the carrot.

Just like the dementia patient in charge, his government can't decide what to do. Allow more drilling for oil thus getting the oil price down - but then commit to shutting down the same oil wells in five or ten years thus making the oil companies invest stranded assets? Sounds really logical to them I'm sure - but to everyone else it just sounds plain crazy.

We need to remember that the Member for SA was casting all manner of aspersions on Joe Biden well before he was elected. Any comments he has made about Biden since then have to be derogatory, otherwise the Member would lose face or (shudder) have to admit that he was wrong.

I just pointed out to you and others here how terminally confused the Biden government is on things like oil - they want the price to come down but they won't release leases for domestic oil drilling and won't guarantee they won't shut down leases after the private companies have developed them.

So what do they do? They blame Putin. They won't take responsibility for the fact that it's THEIR POLICIES that's helping cause the high oil price, instead they want to blame their own sanctions against Putin's oil despite the fact that its still on the global market anyway, just sold through different intermediaries like India.

It's no coincidence that inflation has taken off since he's been in government. And what, you seriously think they're managing this energy crisis competently - is that what you're trying to argue?

The oil companies already hold the leases. Pres. Biden does not have them in his brief case.

No, they don't - particularly in new fields like New Mexico.

To surmise the post I already made (above) Biden's Secretary of Energy bemoans the fact that they're 100 rigs short of where they need to be pre-COVID19 and they urgently need more domestic production - but then on the very same day her own department postpones yet another oil lease sale.

They're more confused than you are, Mike.

Don, why don't you just acknowledge the fact that under Biden, these significant reforms have been made, no other President Republican or Democrat have not made them for 30 years.

I disagreed with this, but I hope it’s sarcasm.

I don’t know what he’s like in the Rail threads, but of the posters in the Lounge and the Soapbox, Mike is easily the worst. And that’s saying something. 99% of his posts consist of him stalking Don with content-free, delusional and humourless pot shots.

It’s so abusive, obsessive and passionate that it reads like an incel’s aggressively petulant  reaction to being constantly rejected by the unfortunate girl he’s fixated on. Until he’s arrested, that is.

Don may have a secret admirer.
