A 24 year Navy vet, cancer survivor, father, grandfather, assistant caregiver for my live-in mother-in-law. Enjoys golf, football (real and fantasy), being the best grandfather I can, supporting the endeavors of my children (both involved in the education of our younger generations) and tormenting my wife of 34 years. Also prefer bourbon over scotch, but will drink both, just not at the same time. Discovering craft beers and trying trying hard to get to a consistent golf swing.
Charlie Sykes, shows what karma is really about. More and more, people who have ranted about mask policies and vaccines are … wait for it … DYING FROM COVID!
What is it about talking heads, be they on radio or TV, and those who listen to them? Will the deaths of three anti-vaccine/anti-mask radio zealots going to make a dent? What will the excuse be for those who were waiting for FULL FDA approval of vaccines to get their shots to renege and continue to endanger themselves, their families, their social circles, and their communities?
Please, if you know someone who has not started the vaccination process, share some of these stories with them. Let them know that people younger and younger are getting sick and DYING from COVID. If you yourself haven’t been vaccinated, ask yourself “Why?”. It is NOT about government control; it is about protecting yourself and your close circle and your community at large from becoming deathly ill.
Plus some other goodies from the Sykes Morning Shots Newsletter.
Laura Field, Senior Fellow @ the Niskanen Center and Scholar-in-Residence @ American University, takes today’s version of the Claremont Institute, a former think tank in the Conservative vein, and shows how it is become bastion of T****ism and racism. It’s a long read (27 pages in .pdf format), but worth the time to see what today’s “conservatism” has come to.
She nails it – IMHNEO (Thanks Len. It looks like a Hebrew word translated to English)
Once again, the Gentlelady from Georgia invokes 1930’s German rhetoric.
Comparing offering door-to-door vaccines to the Brown Shirts proves, once again, that even a trip to the Holocaust Museum taught her nothing.
She is a game show host at best, and a Nazi obsessed idiot at worst. The problem is she is an elected representative of her district who does not represent her constituents. She just tries to stay relevant through idiotic comments.
So a deep pocket GOP donor is paying for the SDNG to “deploy” to Texas. Yes there are issues at the border. BUT the NG cannot perform ANY LE duties, only support missions for CBP.
Questions arise. 1) Did the Governor of Texas request assistance from other states? I did not see where he did, but I may have missed it. And if he did request it, why not to the administration?
2) Did Governor Noem go in search of deep pockets to pay for this deployment?
3) What is the mission going to be? As the last time the NG was sent to the border, they were only doing support as allowed by law.
4) What if Jeff Bezos decided he needed NG support at an Amazon warehouse in the name of “national security” and made a big donation to the state of Virginia in order to secure a “deployment” to an Alabama warehouse?
This comes off as a paid army doing the bidding of a private citizen.
Investigations are fine. Necessary at times. But to politicize the DOJ in the manner the previous administration did should outrage people from all sides. Especially when the initial investigations under Sessions showed no reason to continue them,
But the President’s personal Attorney General did his master’s bidding and kept at it.
Greg Wallace drops the mic on the GOP and their new ownership. “Republicans in Congress will likely own Greene and her mad ravings for a long time to come, and it will serve them right. But congressional dignity and reputation will pay a heavy price.” Big price to keep two-thirds of the 22-25% of voters who still love this crap happy.
To those of you who say not everything is about the previous President, the GOP is ALL about HIM and HIM alone at this point.
They have no policies at this time except to obstruct EVERYTHING.
And their Elephant “mascot” should be replaced by the old RCA logo with an orange speaker with the dog replaced by a turtle.
