MTG was asked for her opinion of "Red China".

She said she thought it would be ok on a yellow table cloth.

"Rootin' for Putin!" Those bumper stickers will hit the streets on Trumpie vehicles within

24 hours of Vlad's invasion of Ukraine because---that's the anti-Biden position recently.

Just ask Tucker.

Another difference between the parties: our people strive to solve ACTUAL problems---lead in water,

climate change, universal access to medical care and such.

Their people spend their time and PAC money battling non-existent threats like "bamboo ballots", the covid "hoax" and---( shudder! )---Big Bird.

Republicans, look behind you. Can you possibly be proud of the handful of "dead-enders" who are

your only recent "converts"?

They have "recently" straggled into your entourage only because they have always been too apathetic and ignorant to be persuaded to support or oppose anything. They simply had not ever before been motivated to consider the feelings or welfare of anyone other than themselves and they still don't. But, you told them that that selfishness was right and moral and even admirable. And, for the first time for many of them, they were welcomed into a group of people who said they were "courageous" and "decent" and "right".

Among yourselves and behind their backs, you call them "losers".

While in public you may nod and smile as they rant about not just "life begins at conception", but also the lizard people taking over our government, bleach enemas and the "revivification" of JFK and John Jr., you roll your eyes at each other when they are not in the room.

You are the locomotives of the "Trump train" as the wheels come off and it leaves the rails and passengers with anything functioning between their ears leap off.

Please proceed.

I think I understand what is happening with the covid response and why.

Republicans have simply decided to "play the odds". They've done the math and understand that "only" about 15% of all Americans have gotten covid and, of those, only about 1.6% have died. Stated another way, for every 10,000 people in the US's 330,000,000 population, "only" about 24 have died of covid.

Per "Worldometers", we've had 49,751,048 covid cases and 806,651 covid deaths. But, Republicans don't care about those numbers and they don't care that their minimizing of the threat and disparagement of masks and vaccines will undoubtedly increase both of them substantially. They are willing to "bet" that covid will not kill them AND-------they are betting that thousands and thousands more dead Americans will be bad for Biden and his party and good for the political fortunes of Trump and his disciples.

There have been more than a few immoral political strategies in this flawed nation before, but those were "merely" immoral. The current words and actions of the GOP are "AMORAL"--- they don't give a damn how many people their disinformation kills so long as it gets Republican majorities in Congress and Trump back in the White House.

Has Trump been arrested yet? nt

So, how did Greene, Boebert, Gosar, Gaetz and Cawthorn manage to escape from the

"Island of Broken Toys"?

Why do all of these religious folks who insist that a fetus or a zygote or a blastosphere is a

"baby" and that abortion is therefore "murder" ignore what the Bible says about that?

To my admittedly imperfect knowledge, the only biblical insight into the status of the unborn is found in Exodus 21:----22 “When men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that there is a MISCARRIAGE, and yet NO HARM follows, the one who hurt her shall be fined, according as the woman’s husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe." (Emphasis mine)

So, if two men fight and, in the course of their combat, accidentally push or strike a pregnant woman and cause her to have a miscarriage, i.e., spontaneously ABORT, that is , according go the Good Book, "no harm".

Has Trump been arrested yet? nt

I hope someone is already planning a massive march on DC this spring to protest what I expect

to be the overturn of Roe v. Wade. Covid and health permitting, I will be there.

I actually expect all six "conservatives" to vote to kill Roe after listening to the transparently "Got my mind made up, you baby-killer!" questions.
