    I see, accused, process started, but not charged or found guilty of anything.

    Irregardless of which President was the cause for the proceedings, you have a severe lack of understanding of what the process actually is.

    You appear to be the one trying to push an agenda. I don't care what you do or do not believe politically. Your facts were wrong.

    Exactly, (as you and most people here know but not the general pubic it seems) is IMHO synonymous with the word indictment.

    Can you try again and make a coherent sentence? Because this makes no sense

    Exactly, is IMHO synonymous with the word indictment.

    My apologies. Had multiple replies going on....

    IMHO, the word impeachment is synonymous with the word indictment. Basically, just stating charges against a specific party. No trial has taken place and the accused is still innocent. Although some think impeachment/indictment = guilty.

    That seems a bit more coherent.

    Isn't impeachment basically just an indictment? i.e. still have to have a trial to prove they are guilty?
    Nevermind - I'm behind the JB train I see.

  • Biden to sign 10 executive orders to tackle Covid-19

    President Joe Biden is set to sign 10 executive orders to boost the fight against Covid which has ravaged the US.
    Vaccination will be accelerated and testing increased. Emergency legislation will be used to increase production of essentials like masks. In a break with former President Donald Trump, the policy stresses a national strategy rather than relying on states to decide what is best. The moves comes a day after Mr Biden was sworn in as the 46th president. The Trump administration was widely accused of failing to get to grips with the pandemic. In terms of total deaths from coronavirus, the US is the worst-hit country with more than 406,000 lives lost according to Johns Hopkins University. Nearly 24.5 million have been infected.

    Biden did some good work so far. Made his buddies Buffett and Gates richer while taking away some good paying middle-class jobs. Excellent start I say... Can't wait for what's to come...

    I did throw up and edit while you posted so I will add in the edit part also.

    Killed Keystone Pipeline XL permit. Thousands of jobs just vanished. Buffett owns Railway and Gates has billions invested in Canadian Railway. Trudeau was looking forward to those oil dollars along with a bunch of other Canadian workers.



  • Something of interest is reviewing what Presidents past have signed into effect using Executive Order.



  • The Keystone pipeline also cut through national parks, causing an insane amount of environmental harm.

    So what I stated about impeachment is wrong? Hmmm... Or did you purposely leave that out?

    No room to do that here. Just look at the map of keystone, correspond that with Buffett's railway line, add that to the realization that some of the oil will only go by rail and some will not leave Canada. In Canada it will likely travel by rail up north. Now hop over to gurufocus.com, look up the investors to find the companies they own.

    Pretty easy to see.

    Just so we are on the same page at this moment.

    Three facts I thought we were disputing:

    1. Keystone Pipeline XL Permit cancellation - Fact is, jobs were lost.
    2. My comment you posted from yesterday about Impeachment. - Fact, Impeachment is a charge only (aka Indictment). No trial, no one has been proven guilty, nothing other than a piece of paper the House drew up with charges on it.
    3. Comment of Pipeline "Causing an insane amount of environmental harm is an unknown but possible." It is fact that the pipeline XL is not built.

    If any of those are not facts please explain.

    As for the money flow, that is theory and never stated that as a fact. Highly probable though and investors are linking it too.

    Facts are just so difficult, man. Maybe I think it's a fact that the Earth is roundish, your facts might say it's flat, so whose facts are actual facts? I can't believe I'm biting... again... but here goes

    1. The vast majority of pipeline jobs are temporary. Thousands more jobs may disappear the minute the pipeline is done; the construction jobs, the supply chain jobs AND people that have been transporting the oil thus far. If the pipeline didn't streamline the process they wouldn't do it to begin with. So facts? Meh. I don't believe you have real supporting evidence to show that even 100 jobs were lost as of this minute. For all we know a thousand lawyers just got hired to fight the order...

    2. Impeachment is just charges, which no one was arguing, but "nothing else?" Meh. I disagree. I think there's more to it than that. Tangible things? Maybe not. It's still on Trumps record for being the best, most greatest, highest impeached, ever, in the history of ever... But yeah, if the mob owns the jury, charges mean nothing. I'll concede this one. Kudos.

    3. Define environmental harm. Maybe global warming isn't real. Or maybe bulldozers through sacred land doesn't count. If you do an image search for "Keystone XL Construction" one might construe that as "insane environmental harm" and that's not even considering all the potential things that may, or may not, go wrong once it's functional. So facts? Meh.

    1. Keystone Pipeline XL Permit cancellation - Fact is, jobs were lost.

    Temporary construction jobs will be, yes.

    The KXL is the final part of the Keystone pipeline. The original pipeline itself was completed already and has been delivering crude for a couple years now.

    KXL was halted prior to any real work being started by the Obama administration. Had Trump not decided to make his big oil friends richer and granted the permit, there would be nothing to even talk about. But he did, and now there are 3 years of pipeline work in place. Halting it now is just stupid. So who is getting richer now?

    Even if your baseless claim about who is getting money is true, there are also public facts about how much philanthropic work is done by the two names you specifically called out. Can you say the same about Russ Girling, the CEO of TC Energy?

    But all of that has nothing to do with the obviously unthoughtout rant you posted.
