    Nope, he is busier trying to fix ALL of the fuckups from the previous racist administration. And he is doing a damn good job at it too. Especially since the previous administration clearly didn't want to govern, and had no plans for ANYTHING.

    Indeed... they are setting up FEMA camps, instead of photo ops...

    The surge at the border is because these people know they will be treated better than they were under previous administration. If Trump supporters want that as a win... they can have it...

    Exactly, democrats are more likely to treat humans like humans. If republicans want to spin that as a bad thing, so be it.

    The numbers at the border are insane right now... I don’t want to disregard that, just because of the bad faith poster. It’s a major cluster fuck down there... they can’t keep up with the influx...

    Why, was he planning to meet Ted Cruz down in Mexico?

    Ya while I acknowledge there are tons of arrivals at the border, I feel like we could let in the majority of them if we taxed the right people the right amounts. Thankfully Biden is working on this as well.

    Texas power company sued into bankruptcy, $29.1 million in bills forgiven. (That's over $1,000 per household)

    Because all that talking about coming together was bullshit. He doesn't just want to watch the world burn, he wants to throw the molotov.
    Moscow Mitch has become senile, I'm completely convinced, he hasn't made any good political calculations in like a year now. I certainly am not scared of him anymore. Only thing republicans are capable of passing are tax cuts for the rich and judges. no other legislation, they couldn't even repeal obamacare after nearly a decade of that being their entire platform. They were able to obstruct well, but that looks to be going away too, filiibuster and cloture changes, he's terrified, and it's funny to see. I'm actually glad Mitch won re-election, to watch everything he's built crumble to ash right in front of him, and him to be there impotent to do a thing about it.

    Why would he? The wall is built, Mexico paid for it, and it stopped drugs and immigrants forever.

    Because the education system never even covers those sort of topics.

    Never had a geography class. I did have an entire semester in history dedicated to learning about the confederacy though!


    Edit: Based on at least one link I found, it seems teaching Geography as a standalone subject is rather rare. I remember Social Studies covering absolute basics like longitude and latitude as well as landforms like peninsulas. https://www.usnews.com/news/articles...e-at-geography

I integrated it into all my history teaching until I taught at alternative school and created a specific class for it.

    For the record, here are Illinois' standards for high school. Entire section on geography.

    Edit: let's also add that the US tests everyone. Turn out the nonverbal kid on the spectrum is really bad at reading maps or understanding concepts such as the impact of geography on the development of cultural identity.
