And a chainsaw.
Q-publicans will block anything the Democrats try to help the US citizens, then, next election, they’ll complain that the Democrats didn’t get anything done.
Cartoon Truth, f’sure. And I really fail to understand how the GQPists “think” that makes them feel this is okay.
That’s the way it goes, folks! There are always some who want to build bridges…and there are those who want to set the world on fire
That’s American infrastructure in a nutshell. (Along with everything else.)
Nailed it. Yes, I went there.
It is sad when 15 states block teaching US history as it really happened but ask teachers to lie about or omit the parts that would show how immoral/unethical they were in the past.Hard to honestly pledge to be an indivisible nation, when the truth is denied by law … turning rule of law into a cruel joke on your own children. QAnon’s alt-reality is leading its followers to self-destruction and trying to take our constitutional democratic republic with it with its lies, distrust, and disrespect.
It is very simple. Republicans in their current incarnation — and their historical forebears under a variety of other names including at one time Democrats — have always, always, always existed to maintain the interests of the rich at the expense of the rest. They are the heirs of the nobility of Britain and have done a good job of conning just enough regular folks into thinking that making the rich more powerful is good.
Democrats in their current incarnation — and their historical forebears under a variety of other names including at one time Republicans — have always fought for the good of the general population while not wanting to overthrow the rich or strip them of their wealth. Some wealthy people see this as the most logical, most honest way forward. They see their wealth as an obligation rather than deserved, and they work for the general good. Virtually every well-functioning society with a solid middle class follows this path.
We saw the Republican plan in Texas for utilities – how’d that work out for Texans? We’ve seen the *45’s “plan” for ignoring power grid and cyber security upgrades. We’ve seen GOPSOBs revoke Clean Air and Clean Water Acts (Nixon…Republican), and roll back other regulations to protect the environment. We’ve watched them reduce size and threaten what remains of National Parks. This is what Republicans do. When confronted, they simply LIE about how concerned they are. Prime example: they claim to be frustrated they are that Dems never do anything, while ignoring the over 400 bills passed by Dems in the House during *45’s administration, which F’n Mitch had sitting on his desk and never brought before the Senate for debate. Using infrastructure as a metaphor: as the bridges collapse and loved ones are plunged into deep waterways, or financial stability plunges loved ones into crushing debt, or living wages are denied and folks working 2 or 3 jobs still facing no way out of the abyss of poverty, all we will get from the followers if Mitch and his ilk are more “thoughts and prayers”. Shareholders of stock in major corporations are beginning to step up and fight capitalism without restraint, holding their corporate boards and CEOs accountable. More shareholders of like mind need to group and use that pressure companies to be more accountable to their employees for living wages, as well as workplace safety as well as environmental concerns. This is not the whole answer, but it is not pie in the sky stuff – and it is about damn time: https://www.shareholdersforchange.eu/https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/may/20/climate-activist-shareholders-to-target-us-oil-giant-chevron, https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/shell-shareholders-overwhelmingly-support-energy-transition-plan-2021-05-18/
Republicans prefer walls to bridges.
Terrifyingly and dishearteningly ACCURATE, Clay!
I said this before, that that whole party needs to be overhauled and rebuilt like a car engine! Or or on that note, America needs a brand new car period! Today’s Republicans are like the Ford Edsel! Completely useless!
Just missing the Q’s pushing people of color, non-Christian religions, women, LBGTQ, and non-Q’s through the gaps in the failing bridge.
Manchin stands to the side and says, “Bipartisanship!”
the GOP has boxed themselves into their favorite corner, kinda like the dummies they are.
The new GOP Anthem:
“We don’t need no water, let the m..ther f..ker burn.
Burn, m..ther f..ker, burn."
Apologies to the Bloodhound Gang.
What’s the difference between a Republican and an obstructionist? Absolutely nothing.
Make America Great vs Make America a Wuss.
The simplest cartoons are the most pointed.
Whatever it is, I’m against it! – Professor Quincy Wagstaff
Republicans burn things down and then complain about the cost the Democrats need to put out the fire and rebuild.
Amerca used to be a Can-Do nation, conservatives have turned it into “no, we can’t”
Precisely, Mr. Bennett.
Q-publicans don’t want bridges, they want back-doors.
Cogent and (typically) brilliant.
“I asked for water; she gave me gasoline.”—floating blues verse
Collateral damage, even if it means the death of hundreds of thousands and the destruction of the country itself, is acceptable to “Republicans” questing for total power. And if Democrats still manage to get things done, Republicans claim credit while blaming the opposition for getting in the way.
And their supporting Republican idiots believe them.
Reminder: they only need to “win” just once.
If forced to cooperate on Infrastructure, the RepubliQans will do their best to build their own version of the Bridge on the River Kwai.
Like a bridge over troubled waters . . .?
A bridge too far?
I’ve always said this, republicans are like an arsonist that sets a house on fire. Then they block the roads so the fire trucks can’t get through. Then they run around complaining to anyone who’ll listen that the fire fighters aren’t doing their job and that they should be given the power(and money) to fight fires instead of the fire department.
