public policy..

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Fri Jul 22, 2022 6:44 pm

the political parties, be it in England or be it in the US, have
a "set" agenda.. on the right, it tends to take to marginal
cultural war issues... Gays, trans, homophobia and racial issues...
look at the GOP.. does it talk about "kitchen table" issues?
Not in the U.S... The GOP talks about cultural war issues,
but it doesn't engage in the issues that dominate our lives...
for example, the GOP does not engage with how do we put
food in our table or how do we send John to school? or how
are we going to pay for health care? The big response from
the GOP and has been for 40 years, has been tax cuts..
But tax cuts don't do shit for anyone.. take this example,
your car has broken down.. you need 3000 bucks to fix it..
the GOP will offer you a tax cut, but that tax cut won't
come into effect until next year or when you actually do
your taxes...a promised tax cut can only help you long after
the actual event, next year.. but meanwhile how do you pay
that 3000 dollars today to fix your car? A tax cut only helps
those who already have the money to fix the car and can
wait until next year to receive that money back... a tax cut
cannot, cannot help you today to pay your bills, or to get
health insurance or put Jonney through school... that money
is needed immediately and tax cuts don't do that.. for you get
any money back the following year, months after you have
to pay your bills...

so, let flesh this out... Jonney gets into collage,
and it is time to pay for that.... and you go to the school
and say, Yes, I can pay for that collage education next
year with my tax cut... I have no money this year, but
my next tax cut will pay for the schooling today...
you can guess what the school will say, come back next year
or you go into a store to buy groceries , and the clerk says,
that will be 98 dollars and 32 cents...and you say, I can pay
for this with my next year income tax cut....I'll let you
figure out how this ends....

the point is that the main weapon of the GOP doesn't help
the middle class or the poor, because you must buy things,
put out the money today, and how does a tax cut coming through
next year, help you for stuff today? It doesn't..

the only people that is helped by tax cuts are those who already
have the money on hand to buy things... you can't buy a thing with
next year's tax cut.. not a house, not a car, not a TV set, not
a sandwich and not a pack of gum...for today, you cannot
buy a single dam thing with a tax cut meant for next year...
Not one person on planet earth will let you pay today
with a promised tax cut next year...

now the second thing is this bogus attempt to hide the fact
that the GOP has nothing to offer us...
Listen to the GOP, and do they talk about the "kitchen table" stuff,
nope, they don't.. they talk about bogus culture war crap...
they talk about trans people in the bathroom, and how does
that issue compared to people putting food on the table or
getting health care or putting Jonney through school?

I can't feed myself or house myself or get health care
if a trans person is in a public bathroom.. I just don't
care about that... if I can't feed myself or house myself
or have decent health care, what does it matter that somewhere
on planet earth, trans person in in the women's bathroom
culture war stuff is meant to deceive you from seeing
that the GOP has nothing to offer you in terms of "kitchen table"
issues... a tax cut can't put food on your table today..
and how is a trans person in the bathroom help you put
food on the table today?

So anytime anyone brings up culture war issues like gays
or abortion or trans people in the bathroom, it to prevent
you from seeing that those people bringing up the culture war
issues have nothing for you and your "kitchen table" issues...

They are bogus, fake attempts to distract you from seeing the
truth... the GOP has nothing to offer you in regard to kitchen
table issues...and as long as that is all they talk about,
that is the point... they have nothing to offer you...

to continue, how does whinnying about the 2020 election or
the deep state or fake news, help you put food on the table
or buy affordable health care or put Jonney into school?

It doesn't and that is the point, those fake issues are a red herring
meant to distract you from seeing the truth about the GOP/MAGA
party... they have no idea how, or any type of plan to help you deal
with kitchen table issues like sending a kid to collage or getting
health care....

It is not important if gay or trans people are in anyone's bathroom,
that is a fake issue meant to hide the fact the GOP/conservatives/
MAGA party has no plan to help you with the KITCHEN TABLE issues...
the stuff that matters to you today, right now..

Remember that... when someone is trying to distract you
or mislead you, the things that they will talk about is
culture war issues, and not about the kitchen table issues
that make up our lives... and matter most... so tell me,

how exactly is a trans person in a public bathroom more
important than being able to feed your family or buy groceries
or afford a health care plan, putting a kid into school/college?

that is what the Democrats should say, pay no attention to
the crap culture war issues of the GOP/MAGA party...
stick 100% on kitchen table issues...

There is but one thing to focus on and that is kitchen table issues,
health care, putting food on the table, getting a kid into college,
how do we pay for a car that has broken down? If a politician
brings up anything but kitchen table issues, they are trying to
deceive you, fool you...for the cultural war issues is nothing more
than an attempt to deceive and fool you into voting for people
who don't give a shit if you can put food on the table or get
decent affordable health care or get a child into college...

Now if only I could get the other "members of the collection of truth"
to put me on ignore, life would be good..

If you don't suppress gays they will destroy your ideal sexual conduct morality.
Bible says no gay. Gotta go by the bible when making decisions.

I'm sarcastic all the way, this time.

Sexual morality is based on the idea that God knows what is good and bad.
Then God tells us. Then we obey.

Even though there are all kinds of kinks in the natural world.

The idea is that sex is only for child birth.

It's like saying food should only be used for sustainance.
Using food for fun is a sin.

I suppose I don't really know much about your politics or religious beliefs. If I had been paying enough attention, I wouldn't have to ask. That's my failing, brother

We are divided down the middle in the U.S. I don’t know how it is anywhere else. But I don’t claim a party, because democrats on the left want to force pro-life doctors to perform or refer out for abortions, and republicans on the right want to line the pockets of the wealthy and only hold the poor fiscally accountable. Start over man. It’s going to crap in a hand basket.
