yoop - Rule #2, "PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK."

And thanks to the American people electing President Biden our nation was saved from the traitorous actions of a true moron. If our nation is a "sh!t show" it is because of the actions of Republican fools who still believe the lies told by a maniacal fool.

Hi Davel3:

I think there are some valid reasons for people to be upset with President Biden. Possibly it might be because we didn't have a plan for how to manage everyone who approaches our Southern border. No systemic Covid testing. No testing for others like measles, TB, Whooping Cough, etc. No background checks to see who we are letting into our country. No it was just a lets take care of all of these people from Central America and now we learn people are coming from almost every country.

O.K. so that to me is why Biden's poll numbers are dropping. In addition the shutdown of the pipeline that wasn't handled too well either. And the deficit spending, lots of people are concerned.

But as some have said the United States of America was built by immigrants. We are a nation of immigrants so when done well our nation benefits from immigration. HOWEVER, immigration to me means applying for entry to the country, medical checks, payment of fees and expenses, waiting for a period of time and learning to speak our language if possible. That however is NOT what we are doing. We have no idea who is coming across our Southern Border do we?

tomgarven... It's not like I don't agree we should do "immigration well." It's the political spin that disturbs me. We need a comprehensive immigration bill, yet Republicans refuse to do it. I believe they find the issue politically expedient to leave things as they are, and want to ride it to 2022. The problem at the border is that we are looking at people who are extremely desperate and for many understandable reasons. Climate change being one of them. Needless to say, I don't find building additional pipelines helping to solve this issue. You're an engineer, you know what tar-sands oil is all about. The oil is for export and won't impact our energy independence as that seems to be the "spin" those who are opposed to shunting down the pipe-lines are making. The jobs they supply building them are very short-term, and when completed,

create very few jobs. In any case, what I do find, is that until we address this issue of climate change, we are going to see mass migrations all over the world, as people from other countries without the infrastructure and resources will overwhelm the countries with the resources to survive the effects of climate change, at least for the interim. The deficit Spending? I agree we need to keep vigilant, but giving a giant tax break to corporations and the extreme wealthy was a step in the wrong direction. They have already taken more than their fair share of everything America has to offer and nothing is trickling down to help solve our issues. Many will say they already pay the largest portion, but they do it with tax loop holes and deductions that the average American don't have working for them. What can I say, I'm a Bernie Sanders type. As far as no systematic Covid testing? There's a great deal of spin in that one as well. I have included a few links as you strike me as the type that likes to read, and is willing to look at issues with a wider scope. In addition to this subject, let's take the Afghan refugees, It's not like they were dropped off and told go out and have some fun roaming America. There is a vetting process that also includes a health and safety aspect. Regardless if you agree with me or not, these issues are far more complex than the political spin they have been reduced to. For fun, if you have time today, stream the segment of "Mayberry" on CBS Sunday Morning, where Ted Koppel interviews people on the bus. You will see just how much political spin is entrenched in the minds of Americans. I wouldn't mind if not for the fact that they vote just like myself, and take these misconceptions into the voting booth with them. Good talking with you.

“Your”welcome

Anyone thinking, “we the people” should bring non compliant citizens into this country simply due to politics are only creating another objective, an obstacle that this country at this time can’t afford!

Davel3

The results should be interesting. Considering most on here were angry with Biden, claiming he was leaving our Afghan friends behind, before they decided it was politically expedient to be angry with Biden for bringing them here. Political spin for all occasions... even polls.

Too old for this

There is a limit to how many immigrants we can absorb each year. They are costly to us. The Afghans who helped us over the past 2 decades need to be accepted if they want to come here, but they should not be bringing extended family members, too. Perhaps if Joe would shut off the illegal immigration at the southern border, people would be more accepting of the legal immigrants from Afghanistan.

We exceeded our limits years ago. We are broke as a nation!
