I did not compare/equate Biden's lie with any single one of the over 20,000 thousand lies trump told while in office,you have just done that.

 

What I stated is a lie is a lie,no matter who tells it or what it is about.

If you want credibility you will not only call out the politicians you do not support for lieing,you will also call out those you do support for doing the same thing.

In all fairness, no one today or likely in the near future would survive sitting on the 'Seige Perilous'.

I disagree

I was being cynical and also reflecting on the history of our species which from the beginning has at times celebrated ignorance and stupidity,just as it has celebrated wisdom and justice.

Not me.

I am priceless.

 

Seriously no amount of  money would induce me to act against my beliefs.

All one has is being true to oneself.

You have taken the bit about every man having a price to be about money. Not the same thing. You may never do something against your beliefs for money; but i'm going to say you would do it for your son.

You must have missed the CDC annual "NewbieCanuckFan" day.:lol:

 

And for those that think the GOP are that stupid:

 

 

 

 

DeathSantos might not give a **** about his constituents, but anybody want to get within X meters of him better have proof about being vaccinated.  Even Satan himself would deny enter to Hades to these scum.

 

Bang on! What a total fraud this guy is.


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Gov. Ron DeSantis has emphatically resisted placing restrictions on businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But DeSantis this week suggested he may go after companies if they require customers to show proof that they are vaccinated, saying "it’s more than just a private decision."   
 

or

 

 

DeSantis made his comments at an event in the Capitol building, which has been mostly closed to the public during the Legislature’s annual 60-day session.

Lawmakers and their spouses must be tested for COVID-19 before being allowed entrance to the building, as are reporters. The Senate is not authorizing lobbyists or members of the public to enter the building, requiring them to offer testimony on bills from a remote location. The House allows lobbyists in but on a limited basis.

I am guessing you are referring to the Arthurian "siege perilous" and yes I agree with you.

My favorite quote:

Sandlin said one of the guards declared, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”

Lol, honky religion, is that a Q thing? I'm calling BS on this one.

Sandlin definitely looks like your typical white guy, I am thinking he is Swedish.

You have posed a question I will think on all day.

 

If a person threatened to kill my son if I did not kill some person they wanted killed and I could not stop them what would I do ?

 

I probably would do kill that person and it would torment me for the rest of my life.

 

It is hard to admit ones failings.

Gaetz, under investigation for sex allegations, sought blanket pardon from Trump: Sources

It’s unclear if the White House knew of the investigation at the time.

 

During the final weeks of President Donald Trump's administration, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz asked the White House for a blanket presidential pardon --- a request that was ultimately not granted, according to sources familiar with the matter.

 

Gaetz’s seeking of a preemptive pardon for crimes that may have been committed was first reported by the New York Times.

 

Trump was aware of Gaetz’s request, but the idea was quickly dismissed inside the White House, sources told ABC News.

 

The Department of Justice is investigating whether Gaetz had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her to travel with him, potentially violating sex trafficking laws.

Lol, definitely Swedish. That guy's as white as a bag of milk

I mean in all honesty, who looks at this guy and thinks anything about honkeys.

If the guard told him to go and fetch burrito or chalupa, that story would be way more believable.

I have been mistaken for a Turk, Greek, Arab, Mexican etc. but this guy makes me look like Snow White.

Trump solved it?

 

How?

 

What did he do?

 

Are you saying tens of if not hundreds of thousands of migrants waited patiently until January 22nd to start coming across the border?

 

I'd love to know how ti was solved then broken within a day

By letting the migrants know they weren't welcome, sending them back to Mexico to await hearings, and making an agrrement with Mexico to stop the caravans at the Mexican border.  Biden rejected these policies, laid out the welcome mat and got the flood of immigrants he wanted. Some nice cheap labour so his friends and @CBH1926 can keep wages nice and low.

 

Again, I told you... me and Ted don't care about the migrants, we are pointing out the conditions to you because you and your's cared immensely about the conditions 4 years ago. Kids that you branded as "in cages" were being protected just as they are now in their plastic boxes. I feel sorry for the kids because they are being put into peril by their parents so they can illegally pursue the American dream.

which brings up kind of a scary idea... we have ~20% of the worlds fresh water, and a leaky tub toy for a navy. We are in trouble if the US wants to take it. I don't think it gets to that, but we will be in bed with them for a very long time.

You got that’s right. We need to be a lot smarter about it than our oil. Alberta blew it giving it away without making them pay the environmental cost and protection.
