I came across this article, found here, critical of Biden’s Infrastructure plan. Normally, I would let this go as people are entitled to their own opinion, but this article in particular smacks of purposeful ignorance. So lets break it down, point by point.
Clearly, America requires investment in improved infrastructure. Unfortunately, the current infrastructure legislation will do little to address that. In reality, it is a Trojan Horse, using a misleading title to masquerade a panoply of Progressive goals hidden in 2,700 pages that are far too unpopular, and unwise, to be pushed through honestly.
Okay, the page length here…
Something extraordinary is happening on the Texas coast. The world’s largest rocket, quite literally built in a tent, is preparing for its first flight. This rocket, built by SpaceX and called Starship, is about twice as large as the Saturn V, and will aim to be fully and rapidly reusable…the “holy grail” of rocketry.
Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, is known for his unique approach to problem-solving. His approach embodies his years of experience across multiple industries, each one he disrupted and overturned. Here is a comprehensive look at Musk’s insight’s, insights that you may apply in your own life.
Expect progressive politicians from AOC to Bernie Sanders to quietly accuse President Biden and moderate Democrats of kowtowing to GOP demands on infrastructure. Indeed, on the surface, it would appear they are right. Biden’s initial $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan was watered down to just $580 billion in the “bipartisan deal” that Biden is now backing. But, peer behind the numbers, and you’ll find some surprises.
Biden’s initial “infrastructure” plan was better described as a wish list of Democratic objectives. …
Caren, you are right.
Imagine if you are playing a game of chess. Before the game begins, your opponent looks to you and say, "I will win this game, but if I don't, you cheated." After the game is over and you've won....would you give ANY weight to claims of cheating made by your opponent?
You wouldn't. No one would.
Yet this is precisely what Trump did. He began calling the election rigged in April. He stood in front of roaring crowds and told them flat out that he would win.... or Biden cheated. I did some deep dives on this here: https://j-lund.medium.com/desperate-despot-dismantles-democracy-890774b731e6
And yet, million of Americans are drinking the kool aid.
Trump isn't playing by the rules. He doesn't care about law, he would have overthrown democracy if he could. He is unfit to run again and quite frankly, he should be in prison for treason.
"Suddenly the Land of the Free became the land of unemployment and mass detainments and bread lines."
I don't see where you are getting this.
I have seen no "mass detainments." I have seen some arrests due to anti-maskers throwing fits at Walmart/Costco, but that is the action of private companies...not an "totalitarian" government stifling freedom.
These "bread lines" you refer to have nothing to do with government rationing, as seems to be implied, but rather mass panic buying of stables, as is common during an emergency.
As for unemployment, the government stepped in an provided backstops against mass unemployment…
The next ten years promises to be the era of the “super” rocket. Companies in the United States and China are reviving the long lost dream of building rockets large enough to take humans to the Moon and beyond. The question is, which launch system will be the first to space, and can these new mega rockets escape extinction, unlike their ancestors.
Most rockets are limited in that they can only launch under 30 metric tons into Earth orbit. They also lack the punch required to place human-rated spacecraft to the Moon and beyond.
So called Super Heavy Lift Launch…
As Congress debates how to pay for Biden’s infrastructure plan, it is again neglecting the most logical of policy choices. Biden’s infrastructure ambition seeks to make much needed investments into American roads, green energy, bridges, and broadband. Such investments are long overdue and will help keep the country competitive into the 21st century. But funding them is dividing an ideologically tunnel-visioned Washington.
Biden and the GOP managed to box themselves in early on during negotiations regarding funding. Biden has demanded that his bill cannot raise the national debt, he refuses to raise taxes on families making less than $400k a…
Conspiracy theorists love a good sheep; they are easy to manipulate and mislead for nefarious ends. But what happens when the sheep herd themselves? I recently participated in a hilarious anti-vax Twitter thread that discussed the claim that the new mRNA vaccines used in the fight against COVID-19 will “kill everyone.” Here is what I learned about how disinformation is spread. It may surprise you.
Whether civilization can survive the 21st Century is an open question. As humanity lumbers through the 2000s, the growing challenges of slow economic growth, disadvantageous demographics, and climate change, threaten humanity’s survival.
The key to solving the problems that lie ahead require barreling full force forward in new technology at a pace much faster than we did in the 20th Century. But the creaky political institutions designed to encourage innovation are stuck in the last century. The path forward requires a new approach.
Governments have long sought to incentivize technological progress through public policy. These efforts generally fall into two…
In a shock announcement, NASA has chosen to land a five-story skyscraper on the Moon. This is not hyperbole, NASA’s selection of the Spacex-designed Starship Lunar Lander, intended to place the first woman on the Moon, promises to up-end aerospace boardrooms around the globe. While the announcement itself comes as a welcome surprise, it also sends a clear message to a complacent industry…times have changed.
NASA has had a great deal of success utilizing public/private partnerships in the past decade. These new partnerships are delivering capabilities faster and cheaper than the traditional method of government-micromanaged/cost-plus contracting.
The partnerships are successful…
