February 13, 2024, a Dastardly Day in the Senate

The Senate approved $95 billion for more genocide in Gaza, more endless destruction in Ukraine, possible war with China.

The lopsided vote of 70-29 was pushed through by the Democratic Senate majority, further cementing their premier status as top war promoting party, squandering over a trillion dollars a year for laughably termed “defense.”

Only 3 of 51 Democratic senators, counting independent Bernie Sanders, voted against this boondoggle certain to add hundreds more thousand dead in Gaza and Ukraine. It also provides billions for weaponizing Taiwan against an imaginary Chinese invasion guarantees endless and unnecessary diplomatic and military tension there.

While Republicans have no credibility as a peace party, they only gave 22 of their 48 votes to squander US treasure so vitally needed for the homeland. The House GOP is the last roadblock keeping Biden from sending endless innocents to an early death. The pressure on House Republicans to cave is enormous.

While President Biden laughs off charges he’s failing physically and mentally, it’s clear his mind is laser focused destroying his governmental legacy. Much worse, he’s destroying 2 peoples and their homelands simply to promote the ludicrous notion America still controls the world.

    1. “Perhaps, when we remember wars, we should take off our clothes and paint ourselves blue and go on all fours all day long and grunt like pigs. That would surely be more appropriate than noble oratory and shows of flags and well-oiled guns.”
      -Kurt Vonnegut

  1. Are there any days in the Senate – and House – that aren’t “dastardly”?

    Here’s more news. It’s going to stay that way – short of a conflict where portions of the US electorate actually get killed.
