With respect to the two words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
🙄 So, yet another Dem has thrown their hat into the ring and plans on competing for that party’s Presidential Nomination. This time it’s Biden, defying both his personal issues and his race, gender, and age.
It is to yawn; to sit back steeped in ennui as yet another of them begin the process of trying to manufacture some semblance of difference between themselves and every other Dem candidate. And yet, at the end of the day, all that is different between them are their faces and how they shade their rhetoric to most appeal to their chosen market segment of likely Dem voters.
When you look at the current prominent Democrats, it’s glaringly apparent that the Dems have worse woes than people suddenly becoming bothered by Creepy Uncle Joe. Biden’s issues are the least of their problems.
Joe Biden’s – aka Creepy Uncle Joe – current woes are actually lamentable, though entirely expected, or almost so. It was likely only a matter of time and “usefulness” before some woman or set of women voiced outrage over Biden’s very well established and documented misunderstanding of people’s, especially women’s, personal space.
So, now Ole Joe is embroiled in debacle and the Left is seemingly split upon the matter, with some siding with Biden and other’s reviling him. And the debacle is exacerbated by both Biden not being able to say he didn’t do it and by his utter inability not to gaffe when put under pressure. And that is, to me at least, both lamentable and very indicative of some of our nation’s current problems.
Yes, Biden has a long history of invading people’s personal spaces and making them uncomfortable. But also yes, all reports indicate that he is a kind man who never once meant anything “appropriateness” by that behavior and held neither disrespect for- or ill will towards anyone he acted in that way towards. And #IBelieveHim! 😉
Yet, according to the Feminists and their enablers, motive and intent don’t matter at all. All that matters is how the woman or womyn feels about whatever happened. Indeed, by the same rules, any argument by a man about his intentions is just “mansplaining,” “patriarchal condescension,” and “enabling Rape Culture.”
But that just brings up the nasty, tangled knot of hypocrisy among the Left over this sort of issue. So many of them made is stridently clear that they “believed” the utterly unconfirmed and refuted accusations against Justice Kavanaugh but believe Biden to the point of accusing the women who complained of being political operatives. But, at the same time, so many of them who signal as true believers of #MeToo, being apparently as against Biden as they were Kavanaugh, seem to be associated with other 2020 Democrat candidates.
Yeah, it’s a lamentable mess. But at least it’s not our problem. It’s the Democrats problem.
Oh yes! I do so hope that the Jackasses of the Left, especially the Feminazi cunts, have the chutzpah to actually cue up and launch into one of their screeds on “White Privilege” and “Toxic Masculinity” when the three front-runners for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination are: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Beto O’Rourke – all well-to-do White men and all with a history of “inappropriate” behavior towards women.
But we all know that they will cue up that screed and rant it to world and uncaring heavens, don’t we? After all, “it’s not the same thing” in their minds any more than Clinton, Franken, or Ellison are the same thing – again, in their minds.
With all the allegations of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment – ranging from essentially proven to fantastic – they just might want to consider offering a sarcastic award for it. Then again, given the natures and proclivities of those groups that seem to be the epicenters of these behaviors, there might not be any sarcasm involved.
