    from Twitter...

    I don't understand you, Joe Biden.

    You've been president for 6 hours, and not a single angry, misspelled tweet. You're not golfing, you haven't insulted anyone, and you don't even have COVID.

    Do you even president, bro?

    "Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love. Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, thelocker room, or school sports," reads the Executive Order.
    One of the orders, titled "Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation," has been advertised as providing workplace protections for gay and transgender individuals.
    Disgusting, isn't it

    Joe Biden has undone many of the changes made by Donald Trump in the Oval Office of t

    President Joe Biden-13083108-3x2-xlarge-jpg

    The Oval Office was hastily rearranged to Joe Biden's tastes after former president Donald Trump departed.(AP: Alex Brandon)

    All presidents switch up the decor in the Oval Office at the start of their terms to reflect their personality and taste, and to offer symbolic messages to the public.


    When Donald Trump entered the presidential office for the first time in 2017, his changes went further than most, including a button for the near-instant provision of Diet Coke.

    That coke button ...

    Well....
    Appears that Old Joe is off to a good start with a seemingly positive direction/intentions in place. Hit the ground running, as the adage presents itself.
    Already correcting/revising a number of domestic and foreign policy items that his numb and disconnected predecessor found not befitting his personal fancy.

    .....and executive privilege/legislation package to [theoretically] right the ship of the broad COVID/economic mess - which is their top priority, presently - in words and actions.
    Can only be beneficial if his team receives non-partisan support from the always schizophrenic and self-interested mindset of Congress.

    At least on the surface, it's ok.
    We'll see where all this goes, as the U.S. is looming to be quite well in debt with all this spending of wealth that doesn't exist.

    Good luck, Old Joe.

    So you really think some silver spoon asshole who grew up with privilege is going to be bothered with using a minifridge? If you look at the article that Dave linked you can clearly see in one pic that there is a glass with ice full of diet coke. Those are tasks for butlers and servants.

    Who were never asked to do silly shit like this and so many other things. I bet most are more than happy on his departure. These are government jobs that most have held more than one presidency. A few might go back to Bush I would think, maybe even Clinton.

    I think the orange moron drove many of the tenured decent career folks out. Word has it that Biden is rehiring them.

    That is the joke of it all. It was the button to activate a call to Moscow in the event of nuclear strike. But was stripped of Trump by all concerned including the military and joints chiefs of staff. To Trumps delight a Diet Coke delivery button was on his desk inauguration day. He was happy.

    Jobless claims remained at historic highs last week, as Biden inherits the worst job market of any modern president

    Another 900,000 people filed new unemployment claims last week, President Donald Trump's last in office, a snapshot of the significant labor market challenges facing President Joe Biden.


    An additional 423,000 people in 47 states filed new claims for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, the program created to help gig and self-employed workers.


    Altogether, nearly 16 million people were claiming benefits as of Jan. 2, the last week available for that measurement. That number is expected to increase in the coming weeks as people who were dropped from the unemployment rolls after their benefits expired file new claims to take advantage of the extension passed by Congress at the last minute in December.


    The number of new unemployment claims filed each week has remained above the pre-pandemic record of 695,000 since coronavirus cases starting rising in March. Jobless claims have also risen in recent weeks.


    Economists have cautioned about reading too deeply into the weekly fluctuations of the statistic, noting that issues with data processing and duplicate claims have at times inflated the numbers.


    Still, the benchmark paints a dire portrait. Weekly jobless claims are now near what they were at the beginning of September. It's the 44th straight week that initial claims remain higher than the worst week of the Great Recession.




    Biden inherits one of the worst job markets of any modern president, with the country's unemployment rate at 6.7 percent and nearly 10 million fewer people with jobs than at the beginning of last year, as the pandemic has wreaked havoc on industries like tourism, hospitality and food service.


    Biden is calling for a $1.9 trillion stimulus measure that would extend unemployment payments and benefits beyond March, give out $1,400 checks and provide hundreds of millions of dollars to small businesses as well as state and local governments that are struggling.

    The loser has left the building and there’s a mess to clean up. Shouldn’t be difficult to improve on the numbers below…….

    • Under Donald Trump's Watch, the National Debt Increased by $7.8 Trillion


    When Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017, the national debt stood at about $19.9 trillion. As he leaves office this month, the national debt has grown to about $27.7 trillion. That's an increase of 39.2 percent.: Under Donald Trump's Watch, the National Debt Increased by $7.8 Trillion

    Joe has invoked the Defence Production Act to make sure there is enough medical equipment manufactured to treat and vaccinate against the virus.

    Something that fucking orange wanker should have done almost a year ago.

    And then some falsely claimed that the soldiers turned their backs on Biden's motorcade in protest that they were vetted, showing the video...
