    Looks like the Biden administration is already looking like a disaster. Apparently Biden is going to seek bipartisan support for his 1.9 trillion dollar bill which contains the "2k checks," unemployment money, $15/hr minimum wage, etc. etc. I swear democrats are laughable. First of all, you promised 2k checks, which are now $1400, and now this. What Biden is doing is basically guaranteeing is another deadlock on this bill, just like the one the DNC passed in the house over the summer. Biden is either insidious and knows what will happen, or he's just a complete and utter fool. I dont know which is worse.

    You cant even use the franchisee argument because most individual McDonald eateries easily clear profits of 7 figures a year. I have a friend whose dad owns a store in New Jersey and he told me he made 5 million dollars last year. They pay most of their workers just a little bit over 10 bucks an hour. I understand there isn't a high degree of intelligence needed to work there but there is no reason why an establishment as profitable as the biggest burger chain in the world cant pay people a living wage.

    And I'm aware not every business is as profitable as McDonald's so the same rules become a lot more difficult to make uniform.

    It is funny when people use corporations that make literal billions a year as examples of people who can't afford it. Wal-Mart is another go-to. Look, you have a hard time convincing me that the literal richest family on the planet cannot afford to pay people a little more.

    Trump wont go away, and neither side wants that. those that support Trump and Trumpism will want to keep supporting him, and those on the other will continue to make him the evil person responsible for everything while the left media will need the anti Trump news for their viewers.

    Itís all in the hands of the media. If there is money to be made, he will be put forth. If not, he will go away, like an old wart.

    Itís truly amazing how good they have been at brainwashing people. Convincing the people who would most benefit from a policy to put their life on the line to angerly fight against the policy. Itís like convincing people to resist water and demand that water is socialist.

    As someone on the anti-Trump side, there is nothing I want more than for Trump to go away forever.

    X2. I can't think of any other single person who has ruined this country and ruined this economy to the degree trump has.

    Just an absolute failure of a leader.

    He is losing support with his fan base because his last two videos condemn those who took the capitol building. If the leader won't lead the fight, what good is he? These guys really want a violent confrontation. The anger that fuels Trumpism will find another con man to raise up. Even Q'Anon folks are getting diss by the extreme right groups with their worship of Trump as the hero of democracy.

    If he doesn't pardon, he won't, his raiders, it will damage his brand with them even more. Donnie Jr and Ivanka can kiss any silly dream to ride these rubes into a political seat goodbye. They might be kissing their empire good by from what I am hearing.

    A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

    Trump will leave office with his lowest approval rating of his Presidency (29%). Meanwhile, Biden assumes the Presidency with a higher approval rating (64%) than Trump ever had as President.

    And people still wonder how did Biden get 81+ million votes.

    But we need to give Trump a free pass for wanton corruption and attacking Democracy for unity

    Bill Maher gets it.

    He smacks down my prediction of it being the end of the GOP. But he ****in nails it when it comes to what people are actually mad about.

    Bidenís Covid-19 relief plan didnít go down very well with investors.

    Why?

    A ton of big Government.

    The Democratís only way to do things= tax and spend.
