Does Biden suffer from Chumocracy as well.

Biden’s $2tn infrastructure plan aims to ‘finally address climate crisis as a nation'
President says new plan will allow ‘transformational progress’ by bolstering investments in clean energy and electric vehicles

Joe Biden has said his new infrastructure plan will allow “transformational progress in our ability to tackle climate change” by bolstering investments in clean energy, electric vehicles and building homes resilient to threats posed by the climate crisis.

The $2tn plan will make “crumbling” American infrastructure more robust to extreme weather events, the US president said in a speech on Wednesday, while providing funds to “build a modern, resilient and fully clean grid”.

Biden said that tax incentives should allow “all Americans to afford clean electric vehicles” and workers will be able to “seize amazing opportunities in a clean energy future”.
This is music to the corrupt 1%. Who is he kidding? It wont happen.

The push to electric vehicles is a bit much. Something like the Prius plug in hybrid would let you drive...20 miles?...a lot without gas, but yet you would not need to worry about the developing charging stations etc. as you would mostly charge at home and maybe at work.

On another forum:
Biden, fast asleep and dreaming of Corvettes racing to the Crab Nebula and back for pink slips, is a better president than Trump.

My tatty old loafers with the insoles that keep flopping out would be a better president than Trump.

Displeasing the Christofascists who adored the one-term wonder:

'Blinken rejects Pompeo’s human rights rankings in rollout of global report'
Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday rejected his predecessor’s efforts to create a ranking of human rights as he unveiled the State Department’s annual global report on the topic.

Blinken didn’t utter former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s name, but it was clear whom he was referring to when he said, “There is no hierarchy that makes some rights more important than others.”

During his time as the nation’s top diplomat, Pompeo set up the “Commission on Unalienable Rights,” which issued a report that helped him argue in favor of the notion that some rights are more important than others. In particular, Pompeo claimed that religious freedom and property rights were the “foremost” rights.

Many human rights scholars chided Pompeo, saying that having a hierarchy of rights could ultimately lead to efforts to erode the rights of certain groups, like women and LGBTQI people, by saying they simply mattered less.

Blinken agreed with that critique, saying that human rights are interdependent. One needs freedom of assembly, for example, to be able to organize a union, he said.

Further dismay for the Christofascists and the numpties who align with them:

'Pentagon Releases New Policies Enabling Transgender People To Serve In The Military'
The Pentagon announced new policies on Wednesday that undo the Trump-era rules that effectively banned transgender people from serving in the military.

The new regulations provide "access to the military in one's self-identified gender provided all appropriate standards are met," the Defense Department said in a statement, and "provide a path for those in service for medical treatment, gender transition, and recognition in one's self-identified gender."

The new policies go into effect April 30.

In unrelated news, maybe Biden will change the scoring on the gender neutral fitness testing. You know - for fairness because one gender does TERRIBLY compared to the other.
https://www.theblaze.com/news/us-army-m ... tral-tests
"In the ACFT there are six events — the maximum deadlift, a standing power throw, hand-release pushups, a spring, drag and carry, leg tuck, and a two-mile run," the Telegraph noted. "To pass the test those taking it must score at least 360 points out of a possible 600, and those who achieve higher scores are more likely to be promoted."

Average women's scores, according to the outlet, are approximately 100 points lower than men's.
Of course, that doesn't show a difference between sexes. All they need are more big-boned folk identifying as women, and this discrepancy will shrink quickly.
In February, U.S. Army Captain Kristen Griest, the Army's first female infantry officer, said that the gender-neutral test "should be scored the same for men and women."

"The entire purpose of creating a gender-neutral test was to acknowledge the reality that each job has objective physical standards to which all soldiers should be held, regardless of gender," she said at the time. "The intent was not to ensure that women and men will have an equal likelihood of meeting those standards. Rather, it is incumbent upon women who volunteer for the combat arms profession to ensure they are fully capable and qualified for it. To not require women to meet equal standards in combat arms will not only undermine their credibility, but also place those women, their teammates, and the mission at risk."
Biden's 'follow the science' party has its work cut out for it now.

Mitt Romney and Joe Biden were walking up the stairs together.

Which one fell down?

You come across as rather confused about this issue. I think that might be down to your sources of information, probably.

I'm not confused. Biden's policies seem to be.

But feel free to clarify anything you think you need to.

Happy that oblige. What do you need clarification on?

As I wrote, anything you care to.

I'm satisfied to listen to the expert quoted.
In February, U.S. Army Captain Kristen Griest, the Army's first female infantry officer, said that the gender-neutral test "should be scored the same for men and women.
You might differ, but I sure don't need more 'clarity'. Maybe Biden could use your help though. He seems confused often.

I would agree that, for very demanding roles such as being an infantry officer, the same physical criteria should be used for all applicants.

However, that rather specialised circumstance has no important implications for overall gender based issues.

What are Biden's policies regarding the Army Combat Fitness Test? The link you provided doesn't say, so where did you read what they are?
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton
