So while the timing and all looks fishy, i do believe the victims at the moment until there is proof that they lie.
 

I mean, you're not wrong.

It was always predictable that the right would say "See...Biden is going to get us into war again". Completely predictable rhetoric...but, it's annoying just the same.

Trump was not some beacon of freedom, or anti-war sentiment. He was just wholly inept at his job and allowed bad people to get away with literal murder. Sure...the last thing we need right now is to kick the hornet's nest with places like Russia, Saudi Arabia, and China...but we do need to assert some level of slapback for the shit that they've been getting away with. It's unfortunate that the previous president let them have a field day. But...especially when it comes to the fact that Saudi Arabia murdered an innocent reporter, and Russia tried to murder an opposition leader. These are actual crimes against humanity. Not to mention, the blatent two-facedness of it all. Because, you know damn well that Trump could have stormed any country on the map for no reason at all, and his supporters would have eaten it up. God forbid there is military action for a legitimate reason, though...that would be unthinkable. Essentially, we now have a World War situation because of the absolute ineptitude of the previous administration to perform checks and balances. I definitely don't envy Biden being the one who has to attempt to glue this shit back together. There is plenty that Biden is doing that I am not on board with. (I thought the airstrike is Syria was an incredibly stupid thing to do). But...other things DO need to be done. Let's not pretend that they don't. Military actions should be avoided wherever possible...especially with places like Russia and China. But...sanctions are a good place to start.

The right likely has no issue with USA getting into war, they just want to use Dems getting us into wars as a reason to oppose them. The right love double standards.

Perhaps almost as much as they love denying science.

That's part of double standards as they have no problem using science to claim there's only two sexes/genders.

Really? is that added to her "Science says there are only two genders, trust science" poster?

That was upsetting me so much, mainly because the left didnt use this to wreck her.
Here you have a religious nutjob finally admitting Science is the way to go, even if its because she is a horrible person that wanted to tell a fellow politican who has a transgender daughter and her office opposite to Greene, that her daughter is worthless...but still.

You could have done so much with this and Democrats did nothing to Knock Greene around.

And thats the other shoe, if Democrats would be less toothless, shit would be done far more.

Imagine being happy with your decision to vote for a dumbass like Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Frightening.

Problem is though, Greene's not the first nor will she be the last to invoke science to fuel her bigotry while denying science when she wants to. There's also a good chance she got this idea from various other right wingers before her. tbh it's pointless to go after this because of how common it is.

I hate these kinds of people...can y'all stop being so nice and accommodating to them? They're literally wrong.

I know everyone wants to avoid conflict wherever possible (especially for the sake of the kids)...but this guy is a hysterically-ranting lunatic.

Check in to twitter today to see that Ron Johnson is trending.

Being unfamiliar with Ron Johnson, I do some quick sleuthing and see that he's a Republican senator. Okay...I expected that.

Turns out, he wants to force the senate to read all 600+ pages of the covid bill out loud...just to waste all of our time.

Also turns out, he's directly tied to the corporation Oshkosh, which is the company that got the huge deal to manufacture the new USPS vehicles.

I HATE THE POLITICS OF THIS COUNTRY.

Do i get this right?
Republicans dont want to give the people 600 and not even 400$ unemployment checks because it would make people less motivated to go to work...but they also dont want to raise minimum wage?

If you think you've got something "right" about a republican concept...lower the bar a little further, and then you'll be right.

 

Also...is it wrong to have a crush on Jen Psaki?

True, i assume they will find some way to justify this...probably something along the lines of blaming Immigrants.
While we are at it, i dont know why i havent seen it coming that Texas Greg Abbott would blame Biden and immigrants on the rising numbers of Covid infected...after he opened Texas and ended the mask order.

And no its not wrong, Jen is really lovely, i really enjoy the briefings with her...im not ashamed to admit that i watch them mostly because of her.

Democratic politicians as well. Didn't Manchin oppose raising the minimum wage as well? Google says eight Dems opposed the raise, so yeah. Not to mention, Biden went from promising $2K to saying he meant as in, $600 that we got plus the $1.4K that we will, and I think he got the unemployment lowered? Not sure about that as I haven't researched it, but yeah. 

Biden Administration doesn't seem to be much better. At least under Trump, we did get $600 per week compared to... $300.

So...funny story.

Yesterday, there was an American flag laying in the dirt on the side of the road outside this one house. There is a flagpole on a big tree, and it must have fallen off there somehow. Now...this house formerly had a huge Trump banner during the election...so that's the kind of people they are. Anyway...I thought it would surely be picked up and hung back on the pole when I went by today, but it hadn't been. Still laying there in dirt and roadsalt...like a piece of crap. Since I was walking, I stopped, picked it up, and hung it back on the pole. 

Anyway...thought it was ironic that a filthy leftist would show the flag respect where a "true patriot" had not. *shrug*

I can give you the benefit of the doubt for one day...maybe you didn't notice it. Still there on the second day? Clearly you don't give a shit.

I want to say it amazes me how stupid people are when it comes to the breakdown of the 1.9 trillion bill. But, yeah...I know better. 

Still...I've seen people dumb enough to say that every American should be getting $17,000 from it. (Obviously suggesting that the money should be split equally between the American people, and ignoring what the funds are actually for). This is definitive proof of how dumb these people are, tbh. To entirely fail to grasp the concept of funding for things like schools, businesses, parks, etc...and literally suggest that the only use for the money is going straight to the people. Y'all clearly hit every branch on the stupid tree.

And it burns my ass that these people will all benefit from the bill and their lives will get dramatically better, and things will return to normal...and they will still be completely ignorant to how well it worked. Because, this is who they are. There will always be some completely false narrative for them to follow, and they will still be able to conveniently ignore how well the policies actually worked. And they will still pretend that the covid relief under Trump wasn't an onjective failure that prioritized the rich. (The 'small business' relief during Trump's administration was literally just dumping cash into the ether for anyone [deserving or not] to snatch up. And it ran out at lightning speed). Yeah...it really burns my ass.

A big thing with them is that he had a history of petty crimes, and starred in porn...as if that means he deserved to die for no reason. Smh. He wasn't America's most wanted over there...he was literally just a dude.
