How many think Biden is ruining this country?
Although I agree with your sentiment, this approach is not productive. It appears there is a fundamental rift in the populaces perception of what is right and fair. That same schism is being used by A L L the media sources to forward their agendas without regard for others ideas, opinions or rights. Bill Maher reported that a critique of our current cancel culture fad or a minor verbal impingement upon a oppressed group is to call for summary execution of the offender. I totally agree with Bill on this one. The core cause is all parties tend to move to the far end of the ideological spectrum and elicit extreme responses from a horde of onlookers. I suggest we look for common sense solutions before all this gets further out of hand.

How are we ever going to take a step in this direction when we seem to be a nation of ignorant, closed minded bubbas who can not think and automatically reject anything that their 'leader' (whoever that is) instructs them to reject. Those who are willing to do what you say are a small minority who understand that the majority are being brainwashed by the media, etc. Perhaps one day enough people will wake up but it may be a very, very long time before this happens.
More people are"awake" than you may think - they may just have different priorities and concerns, that lead them to accept different compromises. There's no good reason to lay it on "bubbas" - a conspicuous US southernism that disregards the fact that right-ish politics are not a strictly regional phenomenon. Our last "bubba" president, after all, was a centrist Democrat. It also disregards the fact that left-ish folks can be just as dismissive of the right as the converse. "Derangement"? We've heard that one before. We are all humans, and all in this together.
To the OP who asks who thinks Biden is ruining the country - if you'd care to cite a discussable specific, the thread might be way more interesting.
A view from across the pond in the UK.
I have no idea how your new president is doing. We dont hear that much about him on our news, I can only assume its because hes not tweeting something stupid, derogatory, inflammatory, misogynistic or generally behaving like a dick.
He must just getting in with the job he was elected to do.
I could be wrong, and Im sure someone will point it out. Have fun.

He is trying to spend trillions of dollars with no regard to who will ultimately pay for it. Trillions are planned to be spent on 'infrastructure' but the fact is that most of the planned spending has nothing to do with what most people consider infrastructure - roads, bridges, tunnels. Enormous amounts of money are also planned to be spent on education but the sad fact is that throwing money at education will never solve the real problems of education. The politicians are also lying when they constantly scream about taxing the 'rich' to get them to pay their 'fair share'. The fact is that the working people will ultimately pay for all of this planned nonsense and there will be no improvements to infrastructure because there can not be when you have 40 guys show up to a work site and only 5 actually do anything that is considered 'work'. Paying people to stay home and do nothing is no answer to anything. Once upon a time, we had a real work ethic where those who went to work and worked hard were able to get ahead in life. In today's world, people who work have way too much taken away from them and given to those who can work but chose not to work.
As for bubbas, they are spread throughout the nation and represent people who can not think and are generally intolerant of others who are not exactly like them.
Now back to having fun - lol.
Well from this side of the Atlantic we can see that the sorest loser in the universe is is also a whiny racist white supremacist and now domestic terrorist, who ended up only being a one term President.
To date Donald Trump:
1: Legitimately lost a free and fair election. It wasn't stolen from him, he lost and this has been proven multiple times. More people voted for Biden and Biden won the Electoral College as well. Trump is a loser, and the "You lost, get over it" crowd from 2016 are having the hardest time losing and getting over it.
2: Still continues to promote "the big lie" that the 2020 election was stolen, even opening up the "Office of the Former President" to "carry on the agenda" of his big lie , you know, just like Hilary Clinton didn't when she lost in 2016. Even Sidney Powell is saying that Trump's big lie was in fact a big lie and she was a huge promoter of this conspiricy theory, in fact she's more famous for pushing the big lie than she is for being a Federal Prosecutor. Another fail.
3: Attempted to stage a terrorist coup where his fanatic supporters killed 5 people including a Police Officer. He failed to overthrow the Government so he's a loser in that regard as well, unless you count the murder of 5 people as a success then I guess Trump's a winner?
4: Allowed one of his human trash member of the US House of Representatives Lauren Boebert to live tweet Nancy Pelosi's location so that terrorists could attempt to murder her. Fortunately his terrorists were still too stupid to find Pelosi, so she's still alive today, so both Trump and Boebert failed there as well. Although Boebert still has a job for some reason, despite trying to get people killed.
5: Incited a bunch of whiny racist white supremacist MAGA hat wearing deranged fools to build a noose to hang Mike Pence, his own Vice President after he rallied them with these words: "Were going to have to fight much harder and Mike Pence is going to have to come through for us." Imagine being so loathesome that not even Mike Pence (who acquitted him twice after he was impeached TWICE) wants anything to do with his election stealing BS.
6: On 26th Feb 2020 told you all that 15 CoVid-19 cases would simply drop to 0. One year later, 500,000 are dead.
7: He's such a cancer on the GOP, that the party of 11 Benghazi investigations said it's time to move on from prosecuting the Republican President who almost got them killed while trying to overthrow his own government.
8: He's also so much of a cancer on the GOP that instead of actually representing the people that voted for them, GOP members now spend far too much time moaning some nonsense about baseball, soft drinks , childrens books and plastic toy potatoes, branding it "cancel culture" from their massive public platforms including, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and strangely, the floor of the US House of Representatives. At the time of Vladimir Putin's orange sock puppet's second impeachment, promonent conspiricy theorist, QAnon member and general waste of blood and organs Marjorie Taylor Greene wore a mask emblazoned with the word "censored", literally as she was on camera which was being broadcast by every single news channel in your country. But apparently Jewish space lasers are causing forest fires - you know how I heard this? It's because Greene hasn't been "cancelled" or "censored". The same people who burned Dixie Chicks merchandise in the streets, boycotted NFL and NASCAR because players were kneeling and banning the Confederate flag respectively, are trying to caution you against "Cancel Culture". The only reason you've heard the phrase "Cancel Culture" is because these morons won't STFU about it.
If you're a Republican, this is the side you picked.
I'm assuming you can all do your own research and can make your own decisions: This is is the side you picked.
I'm assuming you've all got brains in your head. This is the side you picked.
None of the above would have been happening if the email lady won in 2016. This is the side you picked... but.... but..... but her emails tho' amirite?!
What about Hunter Biden tho... amirite?! Matt Gaetz is going to get arrested long before Hunter Biden will, just so you know, and kudos to the zero republicans calling for him to resign.
So this is how the Biden administration is ruining your country:
1: 81 days into his presidency Joe Biden has wasted exactly zero of your tax payer dollars on golf trips.
2: Biden has opened up your entire country to CoVid-19 vaccinations (106,000,000 after about 60 days in the White House and rising), where the failed casino owner spent a year denying CoVid-19 even existed and then made sure he got himself vaccinated.
3: Biden gave you your stimulus cheques ($1,900,000,000,000 by Day 53) which I know you all took, despite the fact it's the very definition of the "evils of socialism", I bet you couldn't get that money into your accounts quick enough though could you?! You were all running to the banks faster than a pack of greyhounds.
4: Biden, AOC and Beto spent time and raised millions in an attempt to sort out the power problems in Republican controlled Texas which left people freezing and dying. Ted Cruz ran off to Mexico to seek a better life after GOP policies failed and caused the problems in the first place and then the party of personal responsibility attempted to shift the blame and want you to know that it's someone else's fault that decades of deregulation and climate change denial resulted in Texans freezing in the dark. If AOC ran off to Cancun during any crisis you know full well Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson would shit actual bricks live on television. Cruz also wasn't separated from his kids and they didn't get thrown in cages and gassed either. Maybe he went to Cancun to look for an extra 11,780 votes, can anyone confirm this?
In the interests of balance I'm trying to think of Biden's scandals during the 81 days he's had at the White House.... ummmm.... he wore a Rolex...... tripped on some stairs..... anything else? I think if Biden starts a violent terrorist attack on Capitol Hill to overturn the result of a free and fair Democratic election, which then causes his fanatic cult members all wearing matching "Biden/Harris" t-shirts to target his own Vice President, then you can legitimtely argue he's ruining your country.
Meanwhile, back in the unhinged world of Trumpland make sure you're making regular donations to the NRCC https://www.nrcc.org because they need to know they haven't lost you to the Radical Left. If you uncheck the box on the donation page they'll have to tell Trump you are a DEFECTOR and you've sided with the Dems. Make it a monthly reccuring donation. You can use the cash from your stimulus checks now you've got them. Here's the NRCC donations page: https://secure.winred.com/nrcc/retake-the-house/?utm_content=nrcc_menu_donate
EDIT: Don't donate to the above. Or at least if you do, make sure you uncheck the yellow boxes, because if you leave them checked, the NRCC website will continue to take payments from your credit or debit card. The scam is still running and you will continue to make recurring payments and find it very difficult to get them stopped. They may grass you up to Trump as a defector but, it's either that or they will fleece your bank account.. Your choice.
