I’m not sure any of us should be surprised. We voted for the lesser of two evils.
Still evil

Another troubling indication: Buttigieg gonna be transportation secretary. Biden has constructed another neoliberal right-wing administration — “liberal” and “diverse” with respect to race and sex, monochromatically conservative with respect to class.

The best thing to happen to the Neo-Cons was the race war and ethnic voting. It is fairly easy for low IQ people to determine their tribe and pull the lever. However, understanding the difference between Keynes’s and Reagan’s approach to economics takes a little thought. As long as votes are emotion based the Oligarchs can elect whomever they want. They want an ideology. Biden=Obama+Clinton, etc. Place holders, that’s all folks.

How can this be a Surprise? How can this be troubling?..Only if you believed that there would be change, or a progressive way… No this is a government of Corporations for Corporations… Did you not get the message when Bernie Sanders was pushed aside?.. Come on, are you seriously surprised?.. so the next time around, we are going to see another character, a Trump-esqe one, much worse, much smarter, and one who will have a lot to work with as this country has declined so much more than where we are today… … think of the great divide between the haves and the have nots…it will be vast…and there will be great anger on this land ready to be channeled even more so than what we have seen so far… we have only just tasted what is to come…

In the Norman Jewison classic film “Rollerball” there were no more nations, just seven corporations, each controlling and entire business sector, that had purchased all countries debts and created one, all encompassing global co-op.
Once again, a great science fiction film is becoming a documentary

Only the most abject ostriches would be surprised at this. This is Joe and Democrat leadership just being the Democrats of the last 4 decades. This is what you voted for, and what the Republicans will be defeating in 2022 and 2024.

The People’s Party is an idea whose time is here.

Boy, Joe does not look too healthy in this picture… wonder how long he will last as POTUS, hopefully into February 2021.

Did you see his little “acceptance” speech yesterday? He looked like somebody was about to put pennies on his eyes.
Anybody want to start a pool on whether or not he makes it to January 20?

Finestink, chief at Goldman Sucks said of Clinton after some
of her jaw jacking ‘progressive’ spiel, ‘don’t worry, she’ll be with
us in the end’.

Predictably, Blarney Biden is re-convening prominent members of the club, of which George Carlin reminded us long ago to which we do not belong.

Why on Earth did anybody vote for uncle daddy Joe Biden? He’s one of people responsible for the mess we are in.

“We cannot move forward in a new direction with just the same people, including some of the people who are responsible for the mess we are in.”

“At starting tight end (a traditionally white position… congratulations on Murca’s diversity!)… a black corporate face! At starting fullback (a traditionally straight position… congratulations on Murca’s diversity!)… a gay corporate face! At CIA (a traditionally male position… congratulations on Murca’s diversity!)… a woman face! At the Department of War (a traditionally straight/white/male position… congratulations on Murca’s diversity!)… another black corporate face! Wow! This is an administration that LOOKS like Murca!”

(The problem, of course, is that this is also an administration designed – and streamlined – to PREY on Murca, to slash and gut Murca, to DISPOSSESS Murca and PRIVATIZE Murca, to ACCELERATE the giant vacuuming of Murca’s wealth UPWARD, into the bank accounts of the global predatory rentier class that controls Washington, DC.)
