2. There are so many positive things

 

about Joe's long career, but usually we only hear the negative ones or the ones that aren't true. This is refreshing.

4. Two years before Dr. James Hansen's testimony on Global Warming:

 

Introduced in Senate (09/29/1986)
Global Climate Protection Act of 1986 - Directs the President to establish a Task Force on the Global Climate to research, develop, and implement a coordinated national strategy on global climate. Requires such Task Force to transmit a United States Strategy on the Global Climate to the President within a year. Requires the President to then report to specified members of Congress on such report.

Directs the President to appoint an ambassador at large to coordinate Federal efforts in multilateral activities relating to global warming.

Directs the Secretary of State to promote the early designation of an International Year of Global Climate Protection.

Urges the President to give climate protection high priority on the agenda of U.S.-Soviet relations.


Too bad the Green New Dealers aren't excited by him. Of course, Biden introduced this three years before AOC was born.

8. 33yrs ago. He also held his Anita Hill trial and in 45yrs has just been a go along guy

 

He is the one who made it impossible to discharge student debt in bankruptcy. He produced an olive Branch to Bush after all the illegal wars he started. But the same can be said of many legislators who have been in office for 45yrs. We need to know what we are going to have to face with all of our candidates but Biden carries years of baggage, pos and neg which cannot just be ignored. Be prepared.
