Yes, your parents had a choice: they could get you vaccinated (unless there was a legitimate medical exemption), or they could take you out of school, because you wouldn’t be allowed to attend school unvaccinated. It’s exactly because of those requirements that we no longer have kids regularly dying or being crippled by polio, for instance.
You, of course, omit mentioning that the January 6 rioters attacked and injured 140 cops, smeared feces on the Capitol walls, threw down the American flag and hung the Trump flag in its place, and threatened to hang the Vice President, going so far as to set up a gallows.
Also, the $85 billion figure is what we spent on training and equipping the Afghan army over 20 years, not $85 billion of weapons just sitting around. How did you expect us to get it back?
In other words, you’re a liar.
Everyone on the right screaming about how unprecedented this is has forgotten Richard Nixon’s last days, when Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger ordered military commanders to check any nuclear launch orders with himself or the Secretary of State before executing them, because Nixon was stressed, mentally unstable, and frequently drunk at the time.
Trump may not be a drunk, but it’s obvious to anyone other than the most blinkered MAGA cultist how mentally unstable he is. He cannot be trusted with a Nerf gun, let alone a nuclear arsenal.
… and when YOU blue states need federal disaster aid, we’ll accuse you of mooching and vote against it.
Unfortunately, the only ones living there will be Bezos, Musk, and Branson, while us proles are left to deal with conditions down here.
Because the executive branch can’t make rules for the legislative branch. Next?
(And all Democratic congresspeople and … well … some of the Republicans are already vaccinated anyway.)
Yes, Gary, the Taliban had nothing but swords until we came along. Right.
Republicans are running around claiming that we left “$83 billion” worth of equipment behind. In reality, $83 billion was what we spent on training and equipping the Afghan army over twenty years. Were we supposed to somehow take all that back before leaving?
(and if you think Trump would have handled it better, I invite you to look back at the pullout from northern Syria, where Russian media filmed themselves pawing through abandoned American bases.)
It’s a British thing. What we call underwear, they call pants, and what we call pants, they call trousers.
The western wildfires produced enough smoke this summer to blow all the way to us on the East Coast.
Where’s the “unvaxed, no mask, going to school, I don’t give a darn who I infect” shirt?
