The US plans to:
- reenter the Paris climate accord
- halt border wall construction
- reverse the travel ban on predominantly Muslim countries
- re-engage with World Health Organization, will join global vaccine effort
What a difference a day makes.
It would be interesting to see if he will stop the notion, that vaccines produced in the US should firstly be used in the US. As I heard this is why there is not so much vac in the EU now, because fabrics in the EU produce for EU+World.
(of the 'western' vaccines that is)
@fribbledom vaccine is just a farce.
dollar will fall, they'll use vaccine as a trojan horse to install id that tied you w/ the new digital currency.
it's slow and painful process.
Ugh, to each their own I guess.
Besides, I seriously doubt you'll get one (elaborate argumentative), but based on your reply, I'm now pretty sure you knew that already. 😉
Just reading this person's toot and profile was enough for me. Life is too short to waste it with fruitless discussions...
@fribbledom The problem with doing these by executive order rather than legislatively is that they can just be overturned by the next gal.
There is no direct vote on an executive order. It's really a bureaucratic tool and not a way to make new laws. It's not hard though. The president just has to ask someone in Congress to introduce a bill that says basically the same thing, which happens all the time.
@rickwayne @fribbledom I'm not really blaming anyone; that was more of a reaction to someone earlier posting how fast it is to undo some of the things Trump did. That's why I started with that name. Context I did not mention.
I figured as much, though. Just get someone to introduce it. That would be the sane way to get executive orders ratified, effectively.
@jens @fribbledom The problem with something like the Paris Accords is that the Constitution says "[The president] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;"
If the Senate doesn't ratify it by a two-thirds vote, we're not *really* on board.
@ScottMortimer @jens @fribbledom Maybe I misunderstood this reply, but I wasn't saying anything about whether this was good or not, just that it's not really a "fix." Folks outside the US might not realize that an executive order is just a patch, and only one that applies to the activities of the government. That was all. If everyone knew that already, then my comment was ill-placed.
@fribbledom to me is just losing 4 years every time to do the exact opposite of your precedent government lol ( an extremely polarized political system is not efficient)
@fribbledom Just wait for the book burning, the seeking of political enemies for revenge, the formation of a stasi-like entity to 'snitch' on political wrongthink. Yes, what a difference actual fascists make.
@TallTim i dont get why you troll him.. i thought he was an og bitcoiner when i came here but he sounds like just another it nerd so ive gone back to my default position of ignoring these things
@vbhide Just reacting to his progressive bullshit. No big deal. It was amusing for a while, but I realize he's too far gone to be salvaged. Going into the /dev/null pile.
