Doesn't the constitution preach equality?

No, it requires equality.

The current "racial barriers" are not necessarily directed at the groups you would think would be the targets (see "Asian college admissions" and "Even being gay couldn't get a white man appointed to the San Francisco school board")...

Biden's a senile old goop and his handlers are human filth...

These, not the 1770s, are "the times that try men's souls", and anyone who equivocates is part of the problem...

Who said that? The owner of the hacienda/mina Guachicono back in the 1700s?

"Where's the beef? Was that Juan Tumba's band, again? These are the times that try men's souls."

It may be a strong statement, but it's true.  

Do Americans have their wheelbarrows at the ready for the buckets of cash they will need to purchase a loaf of bread when the results of his policies start to show?

... Meanwhile, Covid or no Covid, there is now a very large class of people across this land who either can’t or won’t earn a living, and we are seeing last year’s idle chat about “guaranteed basic income” (GBI) rapidly congeal into solid policy proposals to supply just that. It’s insane, you know, having nothing to do with producing things of value, but such is the new faith in monetary techno-magic — of which Bitcoin is the exemplar — that the reigning grand viziers and necromancers of economics are unanimous that it’s actually possible to get something for nothing now. I’m sure enough Republicans would go along with it — in terror of their broke and wrathful voters — to pass GBI.

The wild card, though, is how quickly we will destroy the value of the dollar as all this occurs, that is, provoke a king-hell inflation, so the people will get their GBI in worthless money. Nobody believes it can happen after ten years of quantitative easing and other shucks-and-jives in the accounting thickets that seemed to hardly move the inflation needle, except on Wall Street. But anyone who sets foot in a supermarket these days must feel a little shocked at food prices. A dollar for one measly onion… eight bucks for a little flat of ground beef…? How do people with no jobs or lost businesses feed their families? Do they get a warm tingly feeling knowing that Tesla shares are also up? Or are they out in the old toolshed at midnight, sharpening the pitchforks and soaking rags in kerosene?

Just making sure that when insurrection comes, the troops are reliably indoctrinated.
