Biden Administration’s Grand Plan – Give Up Big Dreams, Settle For “Basic Necessities”

The Daily Wire:

“A recent New York Times report found that ‘Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday.’”

That news received two thumbs up from CNN. Let’s hear from the world’s least funny comedian and least capable Senator Al Franken:

“Thanksgiving dinner is going to be more expensive and gas prices; Americans really care about that. But they also are going to care about, you know, in Europe on childcare. The average European country puts $14,000 into each child, supplementing their parents to do childcare. In the United States, it’s $500. That is going to — that’s going to save a tremendous amount of money for parents. And it is going to free up parents to go to work.”

Thank you, Al Franken, for freeing up my time to work more hours and surrendering my children to the likes of Terry McAuliffe. I think I’ll pass, and I’ll raise my children as I see fit. Also, I really don’t feel like working more hours to pay for universal pre-K of my neighbor, who is currently getting a subsidy for staying at home so that she can keep her 2 pm manicure appointment.

Al Franken continues:

“There is lots of stuff in this that’s going to bring down the cost to Americans of very basic things that Europeans take for granted.”

Al Franken just let you in on the grand plan of the Biden administration: to take a lot of your money to provide you with “very basic things.” The Biden administration reserves the right to tell you what “the very basic things” are on any given year – and that will depend on what absurd “budget plan” Congress is willing to pass.

But here is the caveat: if you strive for more than the “very basic things” (as defined by the Biden administration) – you are out of luck.

Your New York steak will cost 3 times as much as last year, but your 4th of July hot dog will be 16c cheaper. You can’t afford a vacation in Bermuda, but you can have a blast spending your government assistance check in a nearby Motel 6. The car that you want is not available, but everybody can ride a free bus and save the environment in the process. Your treadmill will arrive in 2 years, but your membership to your local YMCA is included in the “reconciliation” bill. And so is your neighbor’s – the guy who doesn’t wake up before noon, hasn’t had a job in 5 years, and spends his time wandering around the neighborhood unshaved wearing his pajamas. It’s only fair – exercise is a human right.

You may not be accustomed to this way of living, but most European countries are – and the media tells us they are much more enlightened over there. According to Washington Post, if you still demand service when you come to your favorite restaurant, you are way too spoiled, because you simply have no regard for people’s right to receive government assistance for not working:

“Customers’ persistent whine, “Why don’t they just hire more people?” sounds feeble in this era of the Great Resignation, especially in industries, such as food service, with reputations for being tough places to work.”

“American consumers, their expectations pampered and catered to for decades, are not accustomed to inconvenience.”

Sorry, American consumers. You have gotten way too used to your wicked ways, expecting your local Target to have Halloween candy available past the end of September. You are lucky you have the Biden administration to lead you away from the temptation of just clicking a button on your screen to get your toilet paper delivered at a moment’s notice.

Washington Post has a solution:

Rather than living constantly on the verge of throwing a fit, and risking taking it out on overwhelmed servers, struggling shop owners or late-arriving delivery people, we’d do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations.”

But remember, while the media and left-wing politicians want you to lower expectations, they do not place such a demand on themselves. While pondering how great it is to have “your basic necessities” provided for by the government, keep in mind that your necessities are very different from their necessities. Remember that John Kerry is unable to save the environment without traveling on a private plane. AOC cannot help the poor AOC without wearing a $300,000 dressLori Lightfoot needs a haircut in the middle of the pandemic because her celebrity status requires her to look good at all times. And Gavin Newsom is entitled to his French Laundry outing while his loyal California subjects are stuck at home because saving their lives deserves special privileges.

Remember that politicians and the media are there to serve you – an unenlightened and ungrateful American consumer whose “basic needs” are limited to a one-bedroom apartment and an old Mazda to go get a Big Mac. They work hard day in and day out, saving the country – the work that you, an American citizen whose only “selfish” goal is a better life for your own family – is unable to comprehend. They have bigger fish to fry. Jen Psaki is there to remind you about it every day. She stands on the podium lecturing you how evil it is to be upset about “the treadmill that’s delayed,” only to throw an apoplectic fit next time her spa runs out of her favorite shade of pink nail polish.

Place your bets now if you believe Jen’s favorite shade of pink nail polish will get filed under “basic necessities”- while the rest of us get the same Pepto-Bismol one shade for all.

Written by Tatyana Larina

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. AOC’s dress wasn’t $300K. Some sources say the table at the dinner party was $300K while others say it was $30K but none that I find say the dress was $300K.

    Al Frankin thinks he’s relevant? Why does he think Europe is our model in America? We should be their model for the most part.

    The article inspired me to find a picture of Jen Psaki wearing a pink fur cap with the hammer and sickle emblem on it.

  2. The RWR Community is so happy to see Ms. Tatyana Larina back at the computer sharing her wit and perspective on all things ” present-day life.”

    You framed it exactly on the money – who decides what is and what is not an essential.

    We missed ya and look forward to your next article.
