Fox News, you're doin 'Climate Corps scaremongering' wrong.
Ta, Dok. My dad was a WPA artist. I was a CETA artist (writer). Neither of us needed training; we knew what to do. Both programs offered federally funded job training. I think the Climate Corps will outdo both, and I'm very pleased about that.
The MAGA crowd doesn’t want to learn anything new and they certainty don’t want to work. They’re happy sitting around in their own filth in their shitty double-wides. What they care about is what the government does to “those people” they hate. They want retribution for their shitty lives and, in order to have that, they need to keep their shitty lives shitty. Jobs? Yeah, for “those people.”
I was told by a person this morning, that these CCCs are going to be Biden's way of having a private army, coming into your home and ripping out your gas stoves, and taking away any cars fueled by gas, and make you replace those things with electric, and he'd have his guns ready.
It was not a person in real space/time. Merely a commenter in a very silly place.
Maybe the New CCC kids can rake the forests in Arkansas.
I'm glad I've got SSDI, it gives me something every month, but if I ever have to work again, I wouldn't mind working for a solar panel company. Those places are probably neat.
That was a really tame fox news headline it almost made Biden’s initiative sound kind of positive, like something out of the movie Dave. I’m sure their nighttime “opinion“ shows will describe it as some insidious Biden plot destroy our economy, indoctrinate our kids, and put China first.
OT: MSNBC just had a chyron on, about an hour ago. It said, "Immigrants placing pressure on services in Dem-led cities." Bite me.
Senile, dementia-addled OHJB seems to be doing a LOT of good things. For a sleepy-eyed dude, I mean.
Ministry for the Future, pre-alpha build
Robertson should try that in a big town.
Other than being "just" an executive order... bravo! Down this way, AMLO's "Jovenes Constuyendo el Futuro" (JCF) has regular federal funding, and was expanded to cover foreign aid (yes, Mexico provides some foreign aid to other countries) to a few Central American republics with a two-fold purpose. Besides land reclamation and climate change mitagation, it provides a secure income with lowers the incentive to emigrate.
A hopeful sign here is that the odds-on favorite in next year's presidential election just happens to be an expert on sustainable development .
Of course, it helps NOT being a military power, and what military budget increases we've seen are mostly for "Corps of Engineer" type projects... building railroads and the like.
I don't think 20K is enough.
You know they realized it wasn’t scary enough so they had to add diverse in there.
I'd like to know what qualifies as a "young" person because, like, if I could sign up, I probably would (in fact I did go ahead and fill out the sign-up thing on the website). Seems like a really good thing to do with my life, if it became a real possibility. But yeah, it'll probably be snarled in Republican lawsuits until I'm not even technically young anymore.
FDR's New Deal was the best thing that ever happened to the US. Republicans hated it then, and they hate it, and any offshoots, now.
TL;DR: Republicans hate the US.
Yeah. And some seniors could use a little extra cash. Maybe somehow connect it to Bill McKibben's Third Act./
