I oppose the Heritage Foundation because of unmitigated farkstainery.

I suspect there's not a lot of people waiting to hear what the Heritage Foundation says without being on their payroll... but likely a few of them are in Congress.

You'd think ensuring places get electrical power would be an issue of national security.

I mean, that's how many other countries see it.

Now this might strike some farkers as harsh, but I believe everyone involved in this story should posit their arguments for or against this particular legislation.

Somewhere buried in the J6 committee investigation and John Eastman's emails is a meeting he had with members of the Heritage Foundation explaining to them the plans to block certification on J6 and to substitute the fake suite of electors. I hope they get some dirt rubbing off on them from that.

I see socialism as being similar to what the church does. Trying to create a social network to help people.

But when the government tries to help people and a branch of the church (heritage foundation) fights against it, sometimes I get the idea that it's not so much about the helping people they are against but that the government is in direct competition with the church, and the church doesn't like competition.

When I hear about resistance to join the national grid, I think about the Texans that froze to death then the ones that broiled to death six months later.

If they really want to risk losing even more constituents due to stubbornness & some misguided belief then

Unless it's Republicans helping Republicans, then it's good old fashioned American Patriotism or somesuch. I dunno, they have a convenient ready-made excuse for every one of their hypocritical actions.
 
2022-12-05 6:57:05 AM  
The Heritage Foundation does realize that while Manchin is playing both sides, he isn't really a Republican, right?

I never saw this as direct competition with the church, but direct "competition" between federal and state officials.  And then "competition" between state and local (county/township/parish/city) officials. Any true altruistic person would welcome the help not complain that it came from the federal level.

And that is what it boils down to with conservatives, they don't like getting reminded that they are small fish in an ocean they can't comprehend the size of.

The church's help often comes with a lot of strings attached. The church needs you to see their point of view and agree with it.

If you don't belong to a church, then you don't deserve help, so gays, atheists, minorities and unwed mothers get weeded out. That's the plan at least. Unwed mothers are on the list because they should feel ashamed for their situation.

unixpro: Judging by the replies, the GQP doesn't know what Nationalization is.

Either that, or Joe's contract ran out and the Derp machine kicked in.

Could be both.


But they are right that this plan will force everyone to buy electricity from drag queens.

The Heritage Foundation arguing socialism is like a boy crying wolf all the time. Should just stop listening to them and let the wolf eat them.

Electric Reliability Council of Texas? Is that like how any country call itself the "democratic independent freedom-loving people's republic of wherever-the-fark" is never any of those things? Do they actually intermittently deliver sewage to Alabama or something?

Joe "betrayed" the Right by voting to advance the IRA, therefore anything he is for - even things that they would otherwise support - must be vehemently opposed.  Because for the Right politics is about power and revenge, not about helping people or the venerated "business-owner" class.

Basically, they think they can get an actual Republican to be senator from West Virginia next time around so they're going to sabotage anything that might help Manchin stay in office.

Yeah, that Manchin - socialist through and through.

He isn't needed to disrupt the Democrats any longer so his usefulness as a quisling has come to an end.
