Due to the overflow at ports, containers are now finding their way to residential streets...

"The shipping industry is spilling over into our community and we cannot sustain it any longer...,"

One car was photographed being crushed by a container in the harbor area of Los Angeles.


Do you UNDERSTAND, isle, and the rest of you Blue MAGA progressives, that, at times like this, since the days of FDR, Americans have looked to, and depended on, the President, to be assertive and strong, and to attack crises like this like a pit bull!!!!!?

Apart from the deaf and blind Dems who still support "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" in the White House, Americans understand the history of times like this.

And, of course, what's new is that nearly half of likely voters have always believed that the smoke filled room handlers of the former 18 wheeler driver swiped the election. Now, in addition, nearly every independent disapproves of what the Ding Bat in Chief is doing, or not doing.

America UNDERSTANDS that the supply chain problem will settle itself out in time...

...but the ugliness that takes place until then under the demented stewardship of the intellectually constipated moron will be remembered by voters next year and in 024.

I hope all of you Dems think it was worth it.

    I don't see a logical argument in what you wrote.


  2. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 6:06 am

    I dunno Donna. Are you ignorant of the fact that shipping containers are being dumped in residential areas? Or, that the people in those neighborhoods are objecting, Or, that effective Presidents in the past have been assertive in proving leadership? Or, are you in denial of the former 18 wheeler driver's crumbling approval?


  3. by Donna on October 22, 2021 6:15 am
    Still no logical argument.


  4. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 6:25 am

    Honestly, Donna, I don't think I'm making any kind of argument. I posted a news article and quoted from it.

    Then, I made observations about the role of the US President for nearly a century and the very obvious trend in current polling and the implications of those trends on elections in coming years.

    I'd be glad to discuss it if you object to the observations I've made.

    Wouldn't it be the responsibility of the mayor of L.A. or the governor to fix that problem?



  6. by Donna on October 22, 2021 7:31 am
    Biden ordered the ports to be open 24/7. What else do you think he should be doing?


  7. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 7:50 am

    Donna,

    I never asked the people of the nation to entrust their welfare and prosperity to me. Joe did. This is his effin problem to tackle as was the Depression's FDR's and the failing economy's Reagan's in '81.

    But, were I Joe, I'd instruct your pinhead narcissist governor to enlist the National guard and, were I Joe, thank God I ain't, I'd instruct the military to assist in driving trucks to move product as a temporary solution.

    Then, I'd devote funds to assist in the training of truck drivers...

    ...and, heck, since Joe used to drive an 18 wheeler, I'd show up to ceremonially teach the first session of the first class.

    Do you honestly think that FDR, or bubba Clinton wouldn't be doing more than "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap?"

    Good thing you're not our president LoL! And I certainly thank God you ain't. Apparently you really think the problem is simply a shortage of truck drivers.


  9. by Curt_Anderson on October 22, 2021 9:13 am
    The reason these shipping containers are piling up is because there is a shortage of truck drivers relative to the goods that need to be transported. We can't simply enlist our military personnel and tell them to drive trucks. Truck drivers need specialized training and licenses to be on the road. I dare say that anybody who qualifies to be a long-haul trucker would probably not be in the military.

    Biden's bipartisan infrastructure bill awaiting action in Congress would authorize hundreds of billions of dollars for transportation, which would include workforce development for the trucking industry. That would allow 3,000 drivers between the ages of 18-20 to undergoing training, permitting them to drive tractor-trailers across state lines. Currently, drivers must be 21 to do so.

    Guess which political party won't be voting for the infrastructure bill or offering any solutions of their own.


  10. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 9:39 am

    Isle, bahahahahahahaha.

    I UNDERSTAND that this is a complex problem but the issue in the article is that residential areas are being polluted by the overflow from the ports... dangerously!

    I didn't promise Americans that I could take charge of their welfare and prosperity. "That feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" has.


  11. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 9:43 am

    Curt,

    There are effin THOUSANDS of 18 wheeler drivers in all of the branches of the military.

    You've never seen a convoy on the road!!!!!? But, then, maybe Pennsylvania is more highly militarized than Oregon.

    Still, this is one of your silliest comments.


  12. by Curt_Anderson on October 22, 2021 10:07 am
    I have seen military convoys I don't recall them driving tractor trailer trucks. But funny you should mention it. The Department of Transportation in the military have announced a program 2 allow military personnel to transition into the long-haul truck drivers. See the link below.

    Incidentally not all of the states participate in the program and allow these military drivers to drive through their state as they are not properly licensed.

    It's time for you to stop making excuses for the weak and frail, overwhelmed, guy you voted for.

    Ask yourself, What would FDR do? WWFDRD?


  14. by Curt_Anderson on October 22, 2021 11:42 am
    FDR would have done what Biden is doing. Roosevelt warned of an overly intrusive and controlling federal government.

    "To bring about government by oligarchy, masquerading as democracy, it is fundamentally essential that practically all authority and control be centralized in our Federal government... The individual sovereignty of our states must first be destroyed." --Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

    C'mon, man. Gimme a break!

    FDR created a series of radical programs and then tried to pack the Supreme Court when it resisted his vision!

    I don't know what he considered an OVERLY intrusive government but he had an INTRUSIVE government down pat.

    To think that you can, even jokingly equate FDR with "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" suggests that you you have drowned in your own subjectivity.


  16. by Curt_Anderson on October 22, 2021 12:23 pm
    FDR had genuine emergencies to address: The Great Depression and WWII. He also had solid Democratic majorities in Congress which passed his legislation.

    The supply chain problem is a global inconvenience but it's not like the dire emergencies that confronted FDR.


  17. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 12:35 pm

    As isle'd say, Curt, non sequitur.

    If FDR had faced this "inconvenience," he'd have tackled it with moral strength, conviction and vigor.


  18. by HatetheSwamp on October 22, 2021 1:03 pm

    pb understands that there's little "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" can meaningfully do and he understands that, in time, this mess will be ameliorated.

    What I also know is that FDR. Truman. Eisenhower. Certainly Kennedy. Ford. Even weak Jimmy Carter. Bubba. Bush II. Obama absolutely...

    ...would have offered themselves to the people, personally, as someone who knows their concern and pain, even fear.

    This mindless, demented, empty suit has no self remaining.

    He's opened the ports 24/7, which has created its own problems...and that may, very well, be the end of it, until half of America exchanges Christmas gifts on WASHINGTON's birthday.


  19. by islander on October 23, 2021 8:05 am

    So, Hate, you "say" you understand the complexity of this supply chain problem and you know there is little the president can actually do to fix it so to speak. Do you think the rest of your fellow Trumpsters understand it or are at least "capable" of understanding it?


  20. by HatetheSwamp on October 24, 2021 4:52 am
    isle,

    Well, obviously, no Trump supporter UNDERSTANDS anything as well as you do. That, of course, goes without saying.

    Far be it from me to speak for Trump supporters. I despise Trump. I think he's despicable.

    But, I think that they'd note that Joe's failure is in leading the American people through a difficult time. FDR couldn't make Hitler go away but he was careful to engage the American people and to lead them in a unified struggle against pre-Biden fascism.

    As I UNDERSTAND it, this is what Trump supporters get.


  21. by islander on October 24, 2021 5:23 am

    Hate admits what he believes: "Well, obviously, no Trump supporter UNDERSTANDS anything as well as you do. That, of course, goes without saying."

    Hate, your feelings of inferiority and inadequacy are getting the best of you again. When you start feeling like this I'd suggest that you sit down, relax, and take a few deep breaths.


  22. by HatetheSwamp on October 24, 2021 6:58 am

    Hoohoohoohoohoohoohoo, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    No. They're your feelings of my inferiority and inadequacy.


  23. by islander on October 24, 2021 8:16 am

    Yes I do think you exhibit those characteristics that are symptomatic of someone who experiences feelings of inferiority and inadequacy. One of the classic signs is an imaginary false sense that “others”, in some way, might feel "superior".

    It's a shame that you feel that way but you probably don’t realize how often you make that so obvious here.


  24. by HatetheSwamp on October 24, 2021 8:28 am

    Yes I do think you exhibit those characteristics that are symptomatic of someone who experiences feelings of inferiority and inadequacy. One of the classic signs is an imaginary false sense that “others”, in some way, might feel "superior.

    Well, I only have the words...of you, for instance, who constantly notes that people who think differently than you simply don't UNDERSTAND and of po who frequently quips that people who disagree are, simply, stupid.

    It's rare that the Swampcult Blue MAGA progressives here disagree with anyone without attacking their intellect.

    I can't help laughing at the constant, "I'm smarter than you," refrain.

    But, as that great 60's song notes, THE BEAT GOES ON.

    Bahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahaha hoohoohoohoohoohoohoo hehehehehehehehehehehehe, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.


  25. by Donna on October 24, 2021 10:47 am
    When I use the word "stupid", it usually isn't about IQ, and I use it when making remarks about people on the left as well as the right. I even occasionally use it on myself. I would guess that most people usually use it the way I do.

    If you take it as a personal attack on your overall intelligence, well then that's just stupid.


  26. by islander on October 24, 2021 12:04 pm

    ” I can't help laughing at the constant, "I'm smarter than you," refrain.”

    There you go again Hate, proving my point. I’ll simply repeat what I said, “Yes I do think you exhibit those characteristics that are symptomatic of someone who experiences feelings of inferiority and inadequacy. One of the classic signs is an imaginary false sense that “others” in some way might feel superior.”

    Hate, you also claim: ” Well, I only have the words...of you, for instance, who constantly notes that people who think differently than you simply don't UNDERSTAND and of po who frequently quips that people who disagree are, simply, stupid.”

    What makes you think that I, or anyone else who disagrees with what you or someone else thinks, does so simply because you or that person “thinks differently” rather than disagreeing over the content of what you or that person thinks?...
    I suspect you understand the difference.


  27. by HatetheSwamp on October 24, 2021 12:31 pm

    isle,

    If I bothered to take 15 or 20 minutes, I could easily find at least a dozen posts in which you attempt to splain to me that I don't understand...just on the new forum.

    I defy you to produce even one where you say, "I, very simply, disagree with you." According to you, you and I never simply disagree. If I only understood, I'd know you are right. Bahahahahahahaha!

    This deeply-embedded sanctimony, so pervasive here, is fascinating, and you all suffer from it.


  28. by islander on October 24, 2021 2:05 pm
    Hate,

    When I disagree with you do I really have to tell you that I’m disagreeing with you? LoL !!!

    And when you drift off point, and then respond to questions with non-sequiturs, is it really so hard for you to understand why I think you might not really understand what it is we’re disagreeing about?

    You claim that when we disagree over something, such as your belief that the election was stolen, you claim I disagree with you simply because you think differently than me. If thinking differently means something other than that you think the election was stolen and I don’t think it was, then what does thinking differently mean to you?

    So I’ll ask you again, “What makes you think that I, or anyone else who disagrees with what you or someone else thinks, does so simply because you or that person “thinks differently” rather than that we disagree over the content of what you or that person thinks?...

    I suspect you understand the difference.” Although now I’m beginning to wonder.


  29. by HatetheSwamp on October 24, 2021 3:02 pm

    What makes you a sanctimone is your need to editorialize about how we have come to think differently, there, isle.

    You have never, effin ever, been able simply to say to anyone on either forum, "Yikes, I strenuously disagree with you," and leave it at that.

    A reason people think differently has to do with the information they collect in forming their thought.

    One thing I do UNDERSTAND about you is that you seem to shield yourself from facts that might challenge your settled opinions.

    I can't help you there. If you're going to achieve greater understanding, you'll have to change that yourself.


  30. by Curt_Anderson on October 24, 2021 3:14 pm
    "you seem to shield yourself from facts" --HtS

    That's where you go wrong. You and others in the reality reality-free community who hold debunked beliefs about the last election, vaccines, etc. do not have facts on your side--not even "alternate facts".



  31. by islander on October 24, 2021 3:21 pm

    ” You have never, effin ever, been able simply to say to anyone on either forum, "Yikes, I strenuously disagree with you," and leave it at that.”---Hate

    Why leave it at that? This is a discussion board where we explain “why” we disagree. Do you have a problem with that?

    Getting back on point:

    If you’d read and listened to what Carlson said on the link you posted, which I’m sure you did since that’s where you are coming from, you’d know that Fox and Tucker were trying to suggest that much of the blame for this disruption in the supply chain should be placed on Biden and his administration. You seemed to agree and suggested that he is indeed somehow responsible, or at least he would be blamed by for it by you and your fellow Trumpsters for not having been “assertive in proving leadership” whatever the heck you mean by that, “as if” that could have alleviated the disruption.

    The question here has always been, “have you and your and your fellow Trump supporters been convinced to believe that Biden somehow bears responsibility for this and for not fixing it ?” You, at times, have indicated that you understood the causes of situation and know that Biden is not to blame nor could he fix it. So the question has been modified to “will your fellow Trumpsters fall for what you and the link are suggesting”???




  32. by HatetheSwamp on October 26, 2021 6:11 am

    isle,

    I posted the Fox article because this is an important issue and there was so little coverage, apart from Fox, and virtually nothing, at that time, on this aspect of the issue.

    What is lacking from Joe is a true leader's engagement with people who are suffering or distressed, as Presidents have been doing since FDR.

    And, I get it. Joe's incapable of empathy at his stage of mental decline. He can only blame.

    Joe's bringing no imagination to the problem itself. The supply chain disaster will work itself out, in time, as it the US had no President. And, Americans will stumble in darkness as if they have no President...

    ...because they don't.
