My god hasn’t the man ever read a history book?

Are socialist not allowed to have TVs or G’s and V’s on their keyboards ? Is there some conspiracy going on with newsprint that block’s him from reading any negative stories on socialism/communism .

People think Biden is clueless. I’m beginning to think he’s just a smokescreen .

Going from memory I can’t think of one time a move like that didn’t destroy the nation where it occurred .

It sounds silly but I can’t help but question his motives. Is he purposefully trying to bring on the downfall of our great country ?


During an appearance on MSNBC Thursday night, Sanders told host Chris Hayes that the U.S. needed an "aggressive" federal approach to producing electricity and nodded after Hayes claimed he proposed a "federal takeover of the whole thing."

Sanders agreed with Hayes' assessment that he wanted to create a "Tennessee Valley Authority [TVA] extension for the whole country." "You can't nibble around the edges anymore," Sanders added.


Nibble around the edges my A$$. He wants to take a bite out of 1/5 of our economy and put it in the hands of the federal government who screws up just about everything .

Commie

Mr. I’m not going to walk to California is just another power hungry charlatan.

If the left wants him, I say they deserve him.

I'm thinking of going into the shoe business.

Trumps best chance, or only chance, is if the clueless democrats nominate Comrade Bernie.

Bernie will actually be as disruptive as Trump when he tries to do all these programs.

And if the GOP still has the Senate it will again be a gridlock. Nothing will get done.

He had the unmitigated gall to claim it’s to protect the planet then he cited the TVA as a success story . I’m familiar with their track record . Five or 10 years ago they had a slurry pond collapse and release 1,000,000,000 gallons of toxic coal ash into the clinch River .

Not to mention the decades old ponds leaching arsenic, lead, chromium, mercury and countless other toxins and heavy metals into the ground water . The ecological devastation is so vast and far-reaching even the EPA doesn’t have a plan to deal with it. Which might be good because they would screw it up anyway .

Privately owned companies don’t get away with half of what the TVA does .

Throw in waste, corruption and mismanagement along with the ability to skirt environmental laws and you get federal government 101 .

I understood the fraud in his plan when he misrepresented the fact that the TVA supplies power to 33 states . That sounds like a big deal doesn’t it? Well it ain’t!!!😡

I had to look this up to get the figures right but the TVA and four other federally owned electric generation facilities supply 7% of the US power grid . Canada supplies 9%. On top of that the TVA purchases 15% of their power from other companies .

I don’t think Sanders is it idiot I think he’s a charlatan. The only thing he’s got going for him is that the radical left is so wrapped up in feeling good about theirselves. They don’t have the sense God gave geese !

Only someone that's never lived in a socialist country would want to live in one.

Well, that's what socialists do... take over economic sectors of a nation till they run all of them.

As someone who works in the oilfield and already has to deal with the massive amount of regulations the government forces down our throats, I laugh at the idea of the government actually trying to run it.

A workforce 10 times bigger with another bureaucrat for every 2 workers.

Shutting down a site for an EPA evaluation every time a teaspoon of oil squirts the wrong way.

Fastest way to shut the economy down... ever.

So win/win for the old communist guy and then we can just collapse and let the citizenry deal with it.

Like France 1789 times 1 million.

Bring it.

Somebody aught to buy the snake oil salesman one of these before he arrives at a rally on a unicorn power by rainbow farts passing out pink cotton candy and fairy dust. To wow the social justice warriors so they don’t see the heaping pile of BS he brings in tow .





Sorry everybody but I am mad I’ll try to tone it down .

I once tried to explain to a pro-socialist the problem with making the US socialist.

We have a corrupt capitalist system.

If we replace the system but leave the same damned people, then we'll have a corrupt socialist system.

But somehow, these idiots think that changing the system will eliminate all the corruption.

And a corrupt socialist system would have less accountability than we do now.

Currently at least we have a little .

I didn’t get to see that yet thanks .

Kat is snide, funny, self deprecating and a lot smarter than she lets on in my opinion .

That’s probably going to be on the GG show tomorrow.

I can’t wait to hear Tyrus’s take. 🦅

I can only imagine what do you have to put up with .

That’s one of the reasons I hate the TVA so much . They’ve gotten away with just about everything for decades. Here’s a good article it will make you livid . Because of the treatment you get .

Did I mention I hate the TVA?

Funny part is, my business makes a 90% cleaner flare burn on a wellsite by stripping the gas and taking NGL to market to make propane and butane.

I don't even charge the oil companies for the work I do... I make a paycheck scavenging.

I'm a green business in the oilfield, am taxed at a 59% rate for doing business and Obama's EPA needed to shut me down because of... emissions on my equipment.

Which contributed about .72% of the "bad" emissions for a wellsite... while lowering the total site emissions by.... 90%.

It was an actual war against oil.

It will happen again and I'll be out of the business and happy soon enough.

So I can watch the insanity from my property far from everyone, offgrid and I grow my own popcorn, make my own beer.

I can only imagine what you have to put up with. McCarthy and Jackson put the majority of the small subcontractors I worked with our business . With the ridiculous regulations .

The point I was trying to make with the article I linked. Was that the TVA got away with there poisoning for more or less 50 years. How would you like to have that kind of cushion ?

Do me a favor and check your inbox by the way .

Ehhh Bernie is so pro-government control that he'd issue a prolific amount of EO to get what he wants, and see no issue.
