what does Biden’s intention when he says we must unify, in a practical sense? like what are we supposed to do? hold hands?
second, how unifying is it to sign 17 orders on the 1st day of office, half of them just in order to reverse the policies of the trump administration?January 21, 2021 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #1941356👑RebYidd23Participant
You know holding hands has been forbidden since the pandemic began.January 21, 2021 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #1941361
All for one
And that one is BidenJanuary 21, 2021 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #1941366torahvaluesoverpartyParticipant
As per Dem Ron wyden, “we need unity, and all it will take is adding dc and puerto rico as states,….”January 22, 2021 1:30 am at 1:30 am #1941369GadolhadorahParticipant

Actually, it was surprising that only 8 of the 17 EOs directly reversed a Trump “policy”. If you are old enough to recall (or for some of us, too old to recall) in his first weeks in office, Trump signed close to 30 EOs reversing Obama policies. On Obama’s first week in office, Mitch McConnell promised to be “Obama’s Waterloo” and block his policies wherever possible.
Our system of government is BROKEN as both parties have become increasingly polarized and the traditional process of finding a middle ground consensus to legislate seems a distant memory. Indeed, for Republicans, and many Dems, even using the word “compromise” is a political death wish and guarantee of facing a primary challenge.
Biden was elected on a clear promise to reverse Trump’s immigration and environmental policies just to name a few. As a certain impeached President used to say, “promises made, promises kept”.January 22, 2021 1:38 am at 1:38 am #1941380emes nisht shekerParticipant

When the Rabbi asks for unity, does he mean women should get aliyos? Take down the mechitza?
Step one is the person who proudly announced impeachment articles should not have.January 22, 2021 10:06 am at 10:06 am #1941432
I don’t think the feminists are happy with Biden’s “unity” allowing transgenders (born as male but identify as female) compete with women or go into their locker room and bathroom
Remember, unity is incumbent on everyone else to follow the president and agree to himJanuary 23, 2021 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #1941560
@ca “all for one and that one is him.”
so what does that mean practically?
@tvp who is that?
I guess I’m too old to remember trump calling 4 unity.
true. so what does it mean?
so Biden means we should revert back to pre liberation days?January 23, 2021 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #1941561January 23, 2021 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #1941658
“@ca “all for one and that one is him.”

Meaning if don’t follow Biden’s views expect to be locked up or worse
Did you see what’s going on in Russia?January 24, 2021 7:27 am at 7:27 am #1941682charliehallParticipant
What would become the Trump cult used to whine about Obama issuing a lot of executive orders. Never mind that he issued them at a lower rate than any President since Grover Cleveland. Trump issued executive orders at a faster rate than any President since Jimmy Carter. It is entirely appropriate for Biden to reverse some of those awful policies.
One of the new EOs was to rejoin the World Health Organization. Another was to finally get a systematic COVID-19 policy. Another requires mask wearing on federal property and by federal employees and contractors. Two return us to sane immigration standards. Another appointed acting leaders for dozens of federal agencies so that they can function while McConnell sits on his nominations.
Does the Trump Cult really have a problem with this?January 24, 2021 10:24 am at 10:24 am #1941760jackkParticipant
Unity does not mean to let a riot that:
1) was born of the 2 months of lies spoken and tweeted hourly by trump about the election being stolen
2) that tried to kill members of congress
3) that people died from
4) and that he did not try to prevent in real time
– have no consequences.January 24, 2021 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #1941847
“Does the Trump Cult really have a problem with this?“
I guess the Biden minions have no problem with their daughter competing with men and in the same locker room as men who “claim to be women”January 24, 2021 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #1941849
“that tried to kill members of congress“
What member of congress, and how did they try to kill him/herJanuary 24, 2021 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #1941865Amil ZolaParticipant
CA there is a lot of of coverage about the plans to gas legislators in the tunnels beneath the Capitol. And yea I’m gonna ignore everyone’s whines about MSN etc.January 24, 2021 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #1941869January 24, 2021 1:39 pm at 1:39 pm #1941876
GH and Charlie- you are absolutely correct, he should feel free to sign whatever he wants to put in place (even if he is not sure what it says). The kvetch is about doing it while saying you want unity. It’s okay to not want unity, and to want to reverse stuff, just call it that way.January 24, 2021 1:40 pm at 1:40 pm #1941875
CA – LOTS of coverage…. about the 3 oath keepers. Yup. Definitely a mainstream plan among trump supporters.
“And yea I’m gonna ignore everyone’s whines about MSN etc.”
Nuff saidJanuary 24, 2021 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1941945
Jackk – they must have a set of goals in mind for unity other than “let’s not do these things trump did”. Especially since the people you want to draw close don’t agree with your upteitch. So what are the factors that they are using to unify, or better worded, what steps they are taking that they believe will bridge the sides.
I think we both know that we can’t win anyone over by telling them how wrong they are, so what inroads can they make?
