What Has Happened To Our America? Op-Ed By James V. Ferguson, MD

What Good Is Knowing About What Is Happening If You Are Unable To Do Anything About The Destruction? As A Student Of History, I Have Tried To Imagine What Others Have Felt As Conquering Armies Rampage Or Injustice Is Institutionalized. I Often Feel Frustrated And Angry As I Watch The Disassembly Of Our Country.
A Friend Asked Me, “What Will Happen?” I Told Him I Don’t Know, But History Teaches That Internal Rot Leads To Societal Collapse Or Violent Revolution. We May Be Spared Because We Have A Mechanism Of Altering A Destructive Course. Voting Is Crucial To Avoid The Inevitable Collapse Which Awaits Us. We Must Show Up And Tell The Progressive Democrat Socialists, “No!” But This Cannot Be Done With A 6% Voter Turnout As We Had For The Recent Knox County Primary Elections.

The Founders Of Our American Republic Could Not Have Anticipated The Political Chaos Or Many Of The Other Changes That Have Re-conceptualized And Redefined The Republic They Created. But They Clearly Foresaw One Challenge That Faces Us Today – The Threat Of An All-Powerful Central Government. In The 1900s, Progressives Theodore Roosevelt And Woodrow Wilson Set The Precedent That The President Set The Agenda For Congress, Not The Voters, Which Negated The Founding Principles Of The Executive Branch.

Stimulus Bills Fulfill Political Wish Lists

When Biden Told The Senate He Intended To Move Forward On His Pandemic Relief Bill With No Input From Republicans, The Senate Approved His Inflated Budget Bill Without One GOP Vote. Democrats Blocked Republican Amendments To Stop A Federal Tax On Carbon, To Cut Aide To Schools Refusing To Reopen, To Cut Off Stimulus To Prison Inmates, Outlaw Court Packing, Reopen The Keystone Pipeline, And To Block Checks For Illegal Immigrants. And The GOP Was Unable To Cut Back The Outrageous Amount Of Money Gifted To Leftist Special Interests That Was Taken Directly From Private Businesses.

Why Biden’s New Dawn Of Net-Zero Is Looking Like A Dark Day For Labor

In all pathways, the vast majority of mines and all coal power plants shutter by 2030, although the coal export business will live on. The ranks of 600,000 natural gas workers fall by more than two-thirds by 2050 in most scenarios. To compensate, the Biden administration pledges that the energy transition will create “millions” of green jobs, but most new jobs will be in the construction of wind and solar farms, which is temporary work and often not in the same regions that provide fossil fuel employment. The pay is significantly lower, too. The median wage for a solar installer is about $45,000 a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

COVID Exposed The Flaws In Federalized Education

When COVID-19 shut down classrooms from coast to coast, few districts had contingency plans to plug the hole it put in our children’s learning skills and plans for the next year. This impacted many of their SAT scores, scholarships, college entrance requirements and exams. With no strategic plans during a shutdown, and generous union contracts, school teachers across the U.S. collected full time checks while sitting home. States require schools to include 180 days of classroom instruction and teaching programs. But this was ignored around America. Teachers got paid if they worked or not and many children played with friends instead of doing lessons in quarantine. The only students schooled as usual were by home schooling parents.
