Animal’s Daily Stupid Games News

In the middle of all this, Senate and House Democrats are tying up a major Kung Flu relief package by adding some Green New Deal horseshit into it.  Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who I like more and more every day, is pissed off.  Excerpt:

Former Navy SEAL and Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw is responding to Pelosi’s stunt and calling for accountability.

Here’s what Queen Nancy is demanding:

  • Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards
  • A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service
  • Required early voting
  • Required same day voter registration
  • Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining
  • Full offset of airline emissions by 2025
  • Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
  • Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
  • Federal $15 minimum wage
  • Permanent paid leave
  • Study on climate change mitigation efforts

The provisions will apply to the companies and business rescued by bill.

I’ll be up-front about this; I’m not a fan of government’s tendency to attempt solving every problem by throwing bushels of taxpayer dollars at it.  But, matters of political philosophy aside, there was a deal negotiated in good faith, and a seeming consensus among members of both major parties that there was a need to do something.

And, while I haven’t yet read the bill (and neither have most of the people who will be voting on it) adding a bunch of Green Red New Deal horseshit into it – like new fuel efficiency standards for airlines – is particularly egregious.

Chuck Schumer, Sanctimonious Prick (D-NY) was on the news yesterday bemoaning “not enough protections for American workers” and “bailouts for business.”  I wonder – just who the hell does this horse’s ass think employs American workers?

If there are no businesses, there are no workers, and small businesses, who make up the majority of employers in this company, are getting hit pretty hard.  Stop your fucking posturing, Chuck!
