Sounding very much like a candidate for president, today Vice President Joe Biden spoke at an AFL-CIO Labor Day event in Pittsburgh, Pa. “I’m mad, I’m angry,” Biden thundered, attacking the U.S. economy as “devastating for workers.”

Biden, who is openly considering running against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, thanked “my friend” Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. ”

“There wouldn’t be a single basic right, from a 40-hour week to sick leave, there wouldn’t a single basic right out there … but for labor,” Biden said. “You build the middle class. That’s not an exaggeration.”

The vice president also attacked growing inequality.

“Let me tell you something, man,” Biden said. “The tax code’s not fair. The wealthy aren’t paying their fair share.”

Yup, Elect Joe, he will fix it…..for real this time.

    Oh yeah, ol’ Smokin’ Joe, sucking up to fat crook Trumka. We can count on Joey-boy, yes sir.

  2. Hmeyers says:

    Biden’s speech was A++. He really connects! And embraces his values in an honest and inclusive manner.

    A month or 2 ago, I was hoping Biden would run. Now, I hope he doesn’t run.

    Watching Hillary stumble, stammer and trip over her own feet each day has become a quality source of entertainment.

    I would like to see how she can continue to do this for 400 more days. Also while my head thinks she could probably beat Bernie Sanders if she were in a coma, she really is masterful at screwing up an uncontested campaign — so anything is possible there.

    But Biden’s going to run, and she’ll be out either 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after that happens. If Biden runs, it is a “vote of no confidence” and Obama will kick her off the cliff — possibly by endorsing Biden.

      The bottom line is that D/R voters are going to vote for known evil no matter what. The inexorable swirl towards the drain is financed entirely by the electorate.

  3. bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

    The thing is: everything Biden said is true. AT LEAST he is not a shill for the status quo (aka Republicans) and the source for most of the misery of our declining middle class.

    While I think all politicians are about as useless as one another, there are shades of differences that make real differences in our lives. ie==both Hilary and Joe not as ready to give the Already Too Rich ANOTHER FREAKING TAX BREAK funded by program cuts to you and me. All the Republicans, except Trump, all lined up to do so. THAT is why any Dumbo is BETTER THAN any Puke==> unless you happen to be Already Too Rich.

    Who here is Already too Rich? STOP voting against your own self interests!! Of the two, Joe is of higher moral character. All the Dumbos are what with Hilary being too self delusional to think that her lying ways is the result of the voters confusion.

    As always, I won’t be voting FOR Biden…. just against all the others…………unless……….he convinces Warren to take the VP and run his REREGULATION of Wallstreet policy. That would be sweet. The only possible thing that could happen this go around that would get my positive vote.

    HM==nice review. You are a mix of pros and cons aren’t you.

    DD (Daffy Duck)==crazy and illogical as ever. Income inequality is caused by the tax code totally in place before Obama got in office. Its true he’s done nothing to correct it, but thats not causing it.

    • Hmeyers says:

      In the last 5 days, Hillary has had more positions in TV interviews on whether she is sorry …

      than Scott Walker has on illegal immigration in any given week.

      I bet thedictators, sheiks and mullahs that donated to the Clinton Foundation feel very cheated today.

    When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am a friend of its happiness: When these things can be said, then may the country boast of its constitution and its government.

    Good luck!

    The whole election process makes me think of Einstein’s definition of insanity. – Doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results

  8. Conspiracy Nut says:

    It’s amazing how EVERYONE fails to connect the dots — even Vice President “Jackass” Joe…

    So here it is: America is at WAR, goddamn it! Granted, there’s not a whole lot of SHOOTING going on but there’s still a goddamn WAR! WASHINGTON EVEN DECLARED IT — MULTIPLE TIMES!!! First time was when Johnson declared his war on poverty. Second was Regan’s war on drugs. The last time was for the war on terror. And with America’s historic, well known preoccupation with “wealth”, WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK IS BEING ATTACKED?!!!

    Connect another dot if you can. Here’s just one more headline that occurred TODAY in case you missed it (paraphrased, of course): The U.S. [depressed] economy gets a shot in the arm — Stock market gains over 300 points.

    Are you starting to see how certain “rich people” (who can afford these asshole POLITICIANS) are really more like TRAITORS? Do you need their POLICE to kill any more “poor people” to make the point any more CLEAR? IT’S CALLED WAR!!! “They” just want you to focus on where it’s NOT being fought — the middle east!

    WAKE UP!

    • Hmeyers says:

      “Do you need their POLICE to kill any more “poor people””

      Do the police that kill poor people know they are part of a conspiracy?

      How does the low IQ cop that dreams of any situation that lets him finally get to use his gun on the job — how does that guy join the conspiracy?


      Oh shit! George Washington’s in on it too!

      The Illuminati reanimated his corpse! This is no good. Not good at all!

      Excellent NAMING and CONNECTION of the dots.

      A bit too metaphorical for most here to follow, but well done. Mostly true too.

      Cracks me up whenever I hear a puke proclaim: “Its class warfare.” as if the utterance made it untrue.

      …………….and the sheep continue to graze while being slaughtered.

    Instead of being in the Matrix, the Matrix will be in you.
    Basic DNA storage uses less power than silicon. Hillary can store her email in Bill. You can order stuff from Amazon and pay for it with no card just by thinking about it.

    “(aka Republicans) and the source for most of the misery of our declining middle class.”

    Explain in detail. Please contrast against the Donkey party’s practice of middle class “carrot on a stick” deception.

    Vote donkey and say good-bye to your misery? Yeah, right.

    • Hmeyers says:

      Ever since they did “campaign finance reform” — I think both parties are corrupt.

      So I blame John McCain for destroying the middle class.

      Jeb Bush, as an example, raised $100 million dollars — almost none of it from voters. This is an example of how a candidate that very few voters support can raise a lot of money.

      Obama in 2008 raised tons of money from small donations vs. Hillary 2008 whose money came from the establishment.

      Candidates that aren’t bought:

      Trump, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren.

      [Not sure where Ben Carson fits into this, and not entirely sold on Ben Carson being a real candidate — but Ben Carson is an excellent speaker.]

      Elizabeth Warren doesn’t like Hillary and how Hillary was a big backer of the 2005 Credit Reform Act sponsored by Mastercard and Visa and the credit card industry.

    Stupid Old Man Addresses Corrupt Union, Blames Economy For His Failures

  15. Glenn E. says:

    Biden blames the economy, but not that CEOs who receive hundreds of times more than the lowest paid employee. Shouldn’t there be some reasonable limit, to how high corporate board members can spike their own salaries? While everyone else barely gets by, who’s actually doing the real work, in the company. The disparage between the highest and lowest paid, only gets worse each year. That’s not helping American business grow. That’s just sucking it dry.

    Just like the time after the Prohibition. Some limitations on drinking up all the profits, has to be established. No more 24/7 of bellying up to the bar. And raid the till. Or the companies’ stockholders and employees, simply aren’t being properly provided for, in the future. Their jobs and retirement are at risk.

    • bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

      I agree. I’m all for limits on Corporate Greed. There would be a lot less corruption all around if there was no profit incentive to do so. Imagine CEO’s out to build a great company rather than boost one quarters profit for their parachute?

      Its all legal to do too. Just a matter of recognition and will.

      …………Its not going to happen…….but still.

  16. MikeN says:

    So if Biden runs, will he this time declare that he is the son of a goatherder from Kenya?
