Considering Biden

The man has skated for years under the protection of the Mediocre White Guy Full Employment Act. This is so awful. Not surprising, but it is still  awful. The man is racist, sexist, and classist, and is going to give away the store, if he even wins.

So here's a list of what he has done so far, and why I say he is racist, sexist, and classist:
  • He voted for the Hyde Amendment for decades, and changed his mind just for this campaign.
  • Anita Hill
  • The incredibly punitive and racist Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. 
  • The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005.
When he reaches across the aisle as he has promised to do, what does he have left to give to the Republicans? More tax cuts? Medicare and Social Security cuts? More losses to women’s rights? Will he close the concentration camps?

Michael Bloomberg can relax; his tax cuts are safe with Biden. All the corruption issues are going to be let go and people will go around asking “Was this what we voted for?”

Warren is not a likely VP; she’s been Biden’s opponent for decades and she’d have to give up on ideals she’d pursued for decades to back Biden. I think the VP pick almost has to be a woman, and a woman of color would be a better choice. Harris is likely VP because of her skin color and sex, and because she let the banks off in California.

“When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.”
