Sadly most of the people who this will benefit and work at those locations still will NEVER vote for him or democrats. The jobs will be used by republicans in the state and district to say what The Rs did for them, take the credit and run

Rinse and repeat

I agree with this. Republicans have shown a willingness to shoot themselves in the dick over and over again to own the libs. 

But ultimately, in the bigger picture, i think its a good thing.

Fuck Republicans. 

But like you said, ultimately it's good for America as a whole.

Yup, like how most of the red states take more from the federal government than they pay in taxes, and a bunch of those maga voters are on social security and welfare, but cry about the "socialist" dems and how evil and lazy they are and just need to bootstrap their way into social security and food stamps like they do.

it's not really about the voters.  we already have the votes.  it's about wrecking their messaging.

we already saw that the electorate has a threshold they will not pass when it comes to ridiculous or plain idiotic claims, like the election being stolen.  they will always fear monger about abortion and guns and whatever the fuck, but the more holes you can poke in their rhetoric, the better.

when trump yells and screams about manufacturing jobs in these areas, it will ring that much more hollow.  every little bit helps, especially on the local level.

Thanking the good Lord tonight for giving us Raider Joe. RJ took down a team of the worst crypto bros the world has seen since since a few months ago . No telling if Barron Trump helped with the effort but this is your yearly reminder that he is very tall, and could be a l33t h4Xorz

So Biden had these documents for 10+ years?  And they were just now being missed?  This is embarrassing on so many levels. 

They never were missed.  They were discovered by going and looking for such things.

You know if Trump was in office the MAGA idiots and trumpeters would be spiking the football on the jobs report. 

Truth.

And also the progressives would be saying that "yea but the jobs are all wage slavery horrible cost of living and quality of life low pay jobs while higher paying jobs are being sloughed"

The Labor Department also issued revisions of jobs numbers over the past two years, as it does every time it issues a January report. And this time, the revisions were also huge.

The revised numbers show that employers had a total of 154.6 million workers on payrolls at the end of 2022. That's 813,000 more workers than the previous reading.

I still believe Joe Biden is too old to be President.  His age is inherently a national security risk.  That said, he has far exceeded my expectations of him so far.  I am proud to have voted for him in 2020 and will proudly vote for him again in 2024 assuming he is against Trump or DeSantis or any other turd that currently has a chance to win the GOP primary.

Russia losing a kinetic war that doesn’t endanger American troops.  Seeds of reform in Iran.  China more vulnerable than they’ve been in 30 years.  Lowest unemployment in history.  And, most importantly, no daily fucking deluge of idiocy that undermines our democracy, promotes racism, and reduces the presidency to a fucking insane reality show.

I heard Bill Barr say the other day that he would vote for Trump over Biden, because of how dangerous Biden is. This is after acknowledging that Trump tried to steal the 2020 election. I wonder how these people make their brains work that way.

Fealty to the party.  Dems see the GOP as the opposition and a threat to democracy.  GOP seems the Dems as the embodiment of evil and a threat to their hold on power over "the others."   It's really that simple.  As we've said many times, Jesus Christ himself could return to Earth, run for POTUS as a Democrat, and would only be a toss-up to win the presidency.

When progressives can’t pass their agenda through the front door in Congress, they sneak it through a regulatory back window. That’s what the Biden Administration is doing with gas stoves, as the Energy Department this week proposed new rules that amount to a gradual de facto ban.

A Biden appointee on the Consumer Product Safety Commission ignited a firestorm last month by threatening to ban gas stoves. After criticism from West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and others, the CPSC chairman rejected the idea, and White House officials said they didn’t support banning gas stoves.

Then why has the Energy Department proposed new efficiency standards that would ban the sale of most gas stoves currently on the market? The stated purpose of the rule-making is to reduce energy consumption and save consumers money. But these benefits are meager. The department estimates the proposed rule would reduce energy use by a mere 3.4% from the status quo, and consumers on average would save $21.89 over a cook-top’s lifetime.

Even this assumes the standards are technically achievable without compromising performance. A spokesperson for the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers tells us that gas cook-tops would have to be completely redesigned to comply. Burners might have to become smaller and heavy grate designs altered, which would increase cooking times.

Twenty of the 21 gas stove-top models that the Energy Department tested wouldn’t comply with its proposed standards. Manufacturers would have to spend hundreds of millions of dollars redesigning stoves, if they bother.

Those costs would be passed to consumers in higher prices. The Energy Department estimates increased appliance prices will be offset by lower energy bills as well as climate and health benefits. But these benefits are speculative while higher product costs and reduced performance will directly harm consumers.

Making appliances more energy efficient involves trade-offs. Consumers and manufacturers may choose to make them, but they shouldn’t be forced. Recall how federal energy-efficiency standards reduced the performance of dishwashers. Machines that once washed and dried dishes in an hour now take two to three, and often still don’t get the job done.

Biden officials claim the proposed gas efficiency standards are feasible. But that’s what they also say about their stringent fuel-economy mandates, which effectively force manufacturers to produce more electric vehicles. In both cases the Administration is using regulation to impose policies and coerce behavior they can’t get Congress to endorse.

The new rules betray that the Administration is trying to eliminate gas stoves by whatever regulatory means possible. The Biden CPSC was preparing to use the Federal Hazardous Substances Act as a pretext to ban them before the public uproar. Richard Trumka Jr.—the commissioner who floated the ban last month—claimed that emissions from gas stoves are a “hidden hazard.” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm flogged a dubious study claiming that 12.7% of childhood asthma cases in the U.S. are attributable to gas stoves.

The Inflation Reduction Act also includes a $840 rebate to buy electric stoves plus $500 to convert from gas. Yes, Americans, they really are coming for your gas stoves.

Ok, let's make a bet. When your gas stove is outlawed and is taken from your home and you can't go out to Lowe's and buy a gas stove anymore, I'll pay you $100. And when you realize that nothing happened and it just turned out to be hysterics, you pay me $100.

This isn't going to happen, but that's not the point.
