Listen to a reading of this article: ❖ We are once again witnessing history being made, folks. Today, in the Year of our Lord two thousand and twenty-two, we get the great privilege of bearing witness to the single most American thing that has ever happened.
Am I the only cat who has noticed that we never hear "but we can't afford it!" when it comes to bailing out the billionaires or putting another pointless war on the national credit card?
But healthcare, infrastructure or education or anything else that any semi-first world country manages to provide?
Those are all too expensive.
The Empire is in its plunge stage. Just a question of how many people it drags down with it.
The priorities of the US can be found by colonoscopy.
For the Western world a starting point for context might be…
1) worst longevity
2) worst maternal and infant mortality
3) most obesity
4) most guns
5) most murders, most mass murders, most racial murders
6) most divorce
7) most incarceration
8) most poverty, most child poverty
9) most nukes
10) biggest per capita pollution
Blah, blah, blah…
But annoying/ embarrassing Russia trumps it all. By proxy.
The additional money was "needed" because all the representatives had to add on specific funding for the various military contractors in their own districts.
You are a treasure. I recently came accross you and appreciate your words daily so yes I will submit and pay. This is far more useful thinking that the LA Times or NY Times.Keep it up!
I don't really know what is more American (and despicable, btw): coupling COVID relief with proxy war support or decoupling it to get it approved quicker... it's a sad state of things overall
That money would be so helpful to those families who have been injured by the vaccines. This money will be pocketed by Zelenskyy and his buddies which will be added to their millions that they already have in their offshore accounts - the Panama Papers comes to mind.
And this is not even to fight “Communism” -- it is to fight CAPITALIST Russia and to support Nazi government of Ukraine.
Without any explanation !?
I’m laughing with you. Drinking their unique look. aid is the only thing which will bring an end to their insanity. We will do fine with the truth.
Well, what did we expect? After all, didn't Biden "magically cure" us all of COVID when he started this proxy war? It sure seemed that way when all of a sudden we no longer hear on the local news of how many deaths/hospitalizations are occurring daily, and instead all we hear is how big ol' mean Putin is doing naughty things to a corrupt country most Americans couldn't find on a globe that has all countries labeled in big, fat letters. That's what we get for putting this particular clown into high office, folks. So, do us all a favor and quit voting and donating to the duopoly in DC or your state capital and get out your pitchforks and demand to be treated like human beings instead of tax-paying, cash-producing cows ready for slaughter. The self-dignity you preserve will be worth it.
We have the power and are failing to utilize it!
Well am no laughin...am ragin. Ragin at the obscene actions of a morally bankrupt administration.
How was the Covid bill going to help Americans, in what ways?
Thank you Caitlin, as usual you spotted another seriously perverse and deeply disturbing move by the this administration, it is in fact terrifying that the "democrats" are leading an irreversible and seemingly blind charge into war with Russia, proxy or otherwise and in so doing pivoting so seamlessly from the Covid debacle which has left it's citizens reeling and economy in ruins. I am naturally conservative in my thinking, but the more I see bizarre events like these cascading the more I realise that perhaps I am decidedly not, and am convinced that if appraised of the facts most sensible people would not vote for any of this, that is if they could of course.
Maybe I'm blind but it seems none of the supposed "leftist progressive" sites are even speaking about this!
The sociopathic Uni-Party death cult of war and capitalism devours the mind, then the soul, then existence itself.
Starting to see a pattern? Here's MY hometown. What Democrats pretend to be. Life-long, loyal Democrats, poor mostly Black, 1099 (no insurance, PPE or sick-pay, child care, unemployment or overtime. Her, Nina, Cori, Rashida, Ilhan... HMmmm... Why would Israel dump billions into stomping out Black female candidates who WIN & help us ALL?
