A More Perfect Union

By Glenn

It shouldn’t surprise you that some reporters, talk show hosts and columnists are lazy.  They find a meme and then plug in a detail.   The meme today is the phrase “Washington is broken.”

This phrase allows the speaker to avoid taking responsibility for a judgment or prediction.  It opens the door to the related meme, blaming “both sides.”  These memes are lazy and counterproductive. 

Imagine working for a boss who indiscriminately blamed all of the workers for low productivity and a hostile work environment.  Would you prefer a boss who objectively measures productivity and weeded out the bad apples? Or would you prefer a boss who fired the good with the bad?

Under the constitution, We, the People of the United States, are the boss.  Not me.  Not you. We. We have the responsibility to be a good boss.  We need to identify low productivity representatives and punish uncivilized behavior.

The State of Union Address gives us an opportunity to do an annual performance review.  President Joe Biden delivered facts about the progress of the economy, American leadership overseas and future budget priorities.  Republicans rudely interrupted him and denied reality.

Some Truths Are Self Evident

For example, according to Forbes, the Biden-Harris Administration “apprehended 1.998 million people at the U.S.-Mexico border from October to August.” This was an all-time record.  This fact flies in the face of a big Republican lie. 

The U.S.-Mexico border is more secure.  It is not “open.”  Unlike Donald Trump, however, President Biden is not abusing migrants.  Biden is not separating children from their families.  Our President is following the law.

Job creation has been another area of success.  President Biden reported that his administration “created, with the help of many people in this room, 12 million new jobs — more jobs created in two years than any president has ever created in four years.”    This pattern of Democratic policies creating more jobs has been consistent since the Great Depression.

President Biden and the Democratic Congress also helped veterans of Iraq of Afghanistan.  According to the Military Times, “Millions of veterans are now eligible for expanded health care access and disability benefits related to burn pit smoke and other toxic exposures.”  A Democratic President, a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate got this job done.

Overseas, the President has performed well too.  He ended the “forever war” in Afghanistan.  Biden ordered the execution of Ayman al-Zawahiri, a mastermind behind 9-11.  In Europe President Biden leads an international coalition against Russian tyranny in Ukraine.

Washington is not broken.  Republicans are broken.  They are blinded by their hatred of liberals.  Their hatred has created a paranoid delusional mentality.  As a boss, I’ll reward success, not crazy lies.
