I'm guessing we just need to have a new copy of the "RULES" book that the RepubliCons expect everybody to be following.
I'm sure they're busy revising it, especially the "DEFECIT SPENDING" chapter.

Why should we give their treasonous insurrection a pass for the sake of 'unity?'

Chamberlain did that with Hitler in 1938. His appeasement egged the Nazis on and the ultimate cost was over 60 million lives.

I think the Democrats are done appeasing these fanatical, white supremacist, fascist, traitors.

On edit: put ? after first sentence.

Culling my name from donor bases and voter lists probably and then wrongly imagining I was a GOP supporter and/or a potential donor. They never asked about any of that, their messaging just started right in talking about how good Trumpublican supporter I've been and I really now need to triple-down my (non-existent) past donations so (list of policies and positions I loathe) can be the government's mission for another four years. Dopey, comical, and thoughtless, but also dangerous. Do they think that spouting their lies enough times will convince firm opponents? Apparently. They claim to have very good databases on voters and their behaviors, but in this case they were wasting tons of money contacting people who would never vote for their team, ever.

Other hand, people who believe such garbage don't change their minds. We only have one dental office in our village and we have a pretty low Covid rate. The next closest is 30 minutes away in a town with a Wal-Mart and horrible Covid manners. Groan.

I would complain to the dentist.

And then take real good care of my teeth till you can go to the one 30 minutes away.

No way would I subject myself to a moron like that a second time.

Was a paedophile. I figured in this redneck Republic hotbed, I'd stir something up...didn't expect paedophile! Even though I transgressed the rules of the best etiquette, at least my statement was factually correct! That's my only defense.

When the dentist came in...he was a bigwig in the Houston GOP... I was more gentle. I simply asked if he was going to be okay with the new president. This was after the insurrection. He said that Trump didn't speak like run of the mill politicians and his words (which sounded like incitement to me) were misunderstood.

Out here in the boonies of central Texas, even if I traveled to another town, it's almost guaranteed that any dentist would be GOP.

But I had always assumed this was because I don't spend my days in Iowa diners.
Something about being located a thousand miles away and having a job during the day. Somehow this invalidates my political opinions.

car with the faded Obama and Hillary stickers in the rear window. I used to think that was odd then I read it was a trend among the goons to trade photos of radical heretic cars like mine on the interweb. What's truly odd is that they can read well that well in the first place.

I remember as a kid my mom saying about a rowdy bunch in our neighborhood, “Give them a break, all they need is to have good friends like you do. Try harder to make friends with them.”

Yeah, well all hell broke loose after that. Scrapes, scratches, bruises and torn clothes. Trying harder to make friends with broken people gets you burned.

If you want "Unity" you must first complete this checklist:

• Concede that Joe Biden won the election fair and square
• Admit QAnon was nothing more than a troll peddling conspiracies
• Admit that T**** willfully committed sedition in invoking the attack on the Capitol
• Admit that T**** willfully committed abuse of power and obstruction with his calls to Georgia and Ukraine
• Admit that his campaign knowingly colluded with Russia during the 2016 election and was not a hoax
• Acknowledge that Covid-19 is very much real and was poorly handled by T**** causing the deaths of 400k+

and then MAYBE
