THE GREEN NEW DEAL

 

What is it with this New Green Deal? Read it.

All it is is a package of policy proposals that aims to address global warming, and the financial crises. It is a starting platform for possible changes that may or may not work but it’s a beginning of the discussion.

Currently we have a head up their butts denial of ANY climate effect done by humans with even one screwball Republican that says that the climate change solution can come about by fucking more and having more babies!

And some people think Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is nutty?

If you haven’t noticed, here is the current lay of the land.

You have AOC with her intelligence and concern for the future and the Diane Feinstein, Chuck Suhumer, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the corporate Democrats and Mitch McConnell with a Republican Party who are ALL heavily invested in a FLAT EARTH SOCIETY agreement.

They are all DINOSAURS with no vision for the future because they are already dead!

Tubularsock would rather see what COULD HAPPEN rather than follow the dinosaurs.

Remember what happened last time? Earth 1, dinosaurs 0.

At least Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is alive!

    Well Tubularsock, there’s no denying global warming here, mind you, you’d never know it by our weather. Our “Pretty Boy PM” slapped a carbon tax on us (April 1st, who’s the fool here??) that is going to deal with everything but the issue at hand. Meanwhile, he bought an overpriced pipeline instead of doing the research for alternative energy sources. This pipeline may never get built, there is so much ranker, so the billions of dollars that could have done something to solve the problem is literally “dead” money tied up in some money sink.

      Leslie sounds like the old, business as usual cycle.

      Tubularsock loves that “carbon tax” ! Does Carbon get the money to stop being carbon?

      Not sure how that works really.

      Let see …… you can produce all the carbon you want if you are willing to pay for it.

      Hmmmm, how’s that stop carbon again?

      And really, what better phallic symbol than a pipeline for a “Pretty Boy”?

      Thanks for your comment and Tubularsock sees Canada is fucked up too!

  2. What I like best about the Green New Deal is the way it’s financed – which may be the main reason it’s so strongly opposed. It would financed the new reforms via Overt Monetary Financing, aka Sovereign Money, in which the government creates the money by spending it directly into the economy (instead of borrowing it from banks and increasing government debt). Roosevelt financed much of the New Deal this way.

    The original New Deal under Franklin Roosevelt brought us such things & policies as:
    –Insurance on our savings & checking accounts (FDIC)
    –A pension for old age or disability (Social Security)
    –A minimum wage
    –Regulation of the stock market (SEC)
    –Conservation of natural resources (CCC)
    –Federal support for home loans
    –Conservation and cheap electric rates for the impoverished Tennessee Valley (TVA)
    –A host of infrastructure programs as well as support for the arts (WPA)
    –And in addition, the G.I. Bill Program developed near the end of WW2 (1944) made it possible for millions of war veterans to assimilate back into society and better their lives.
    All of this made life BETTER for millions of Americans. A Green New Deal, for whatever form it takes in the future, will attempt to make life POSSIBLE for the world’s population. People who oppose it are probably signing a death warrant for their grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    Trump and his minions and the Wall Street Fat Cats are the past-but they don’t realize it yet. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the future; we should follow her. And she’s so much more appealing in so many ways than the Tub of Guts blow hard we have in the White House now.
    I’ll get off my soap box now and hand it back to you, Tube.

      Batt, Tubularsock loves you on your soap box. So true.

      Be interested in your view on what Dr.B’s statement above about The Sovereign Money.

      You’re a big FDR fan so the Sovereign Money plan would be right up your alley, correct?

      Thanks for your comment.

    I always thought that money was created by the Federal Reserve, which is supposed to be independent. But Trump wants to take it over by some bad appointments to the Federal Reserve Board of Directors. Just one more area of government he wants to screw up.
