Thoughts on Events the Week of October 25

Posted in Uncategorized by EloiSVM42 on November 5, 2021

Legislative disfunction: Voters are disgusted with our legislative branch and it’s easy to understand why. Here are two reasons right off the bat:

In this highly polarized and partisan season, about half of the population disapproves of the members of the other party and vice versa. Throw a Ven Diagram over that and you get a very low percentage of voters who feel positive about the legislature overall.

More immediately, Since Biden took over the presidency on January 20, Democrats have embarrassed themselves with public, intraparty incompetence that has brought progress on important legislation to a screeching halt. That’s nine months of impotence that leaves voters to conclude that the Democrats are not capable of governing.

And there was another week of this paralysis leading right up to the week of special and scheduled elections. This does not look good on Democrats’ resumes.

Worst states: Let’s cut right to the chase. Paul Gosar, my own personal representative in the U.S. House is among the worst top five Congresspersons on his best day. But it appears he was up to his arm pits in the January 6 insurrection. It’s not even a contest this week. Arizona gets the worst state up by unanimous consent of me.
