  1. It's not my opinion. It is in the last two sentences of the OP I posted.
  2. You're stealing Old Mack's material. You owe him an apology.
  3. "Let us in!" This is a cause for concern, but it was worse under Trump. Drone footage of migrants at Texas bridge an ‘absolute catastrophe' from Biden, Republican says (msn.com) (Full article at above link) Troubling drone footage emerged online Sunday that reportedly showed up to 1,000 migrants being held by border patrol in Mission, Texas, prompted criticism from Republicans who said the footage underscores the crisis at the border. "An absolute catastrophe from Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and House & Senate Democrats," Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said. Border patrol did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News seeking comment about the video. Republicans have been critical of the Biden administration over its handling of the border issue. They say the president should be more assertive in getting the problem under control given that there is a global pandemic. Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, announced last week that he would deploy the Texas National Guard to help troopers make arrests at the border. "To respond to this disaster and secure the rule of law at our Southern border, more manpower is needed," Abbott wrote in a letter to Maj. Gen. Tracy R. Norris, adjutant general of the Texas National Guard. U.S. officials reported this month that they had encountered 55,805 members of families with children in June, up 25% from the previous month. That figure still remains far below the high of 88,587 in May 2019. (Then wtf is Fox bitching about?-drvoke)
  4. "Ensuring every American has a roof overhead is a value that unites the Democratic Party. That's why I led a relentless campaign to extend the CDC eviction moratorium. In an act of pure cruelty, Republicans blocked this measure — leaving children and families out on the streets. Democrats in the House had a chance to stop them. They failed." AOC blames Democrats for letting eviction moratorium expire, says Biden wasn't 'forthright' (msn.com) (Full article at above link) AOC blamed Democratic leadership for allowing the nation's eviction moratorium to expire. The Democratic-controlled House adjourned Friday without extending the moratorium that was put in place to help renters amid the coronavirus pandemic. It expired Sunday, leaving progressive Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez outraged and demanding that the House return from its August recess. Ocasio-Cortez said House Democratic leadership had an opportunity to hold a vote on extending the moratorium last week, but "there was frankly a handful of conservative Democrats in the House that threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote." "We cannot in good faith solely blame House Republicans when Democrats have the majority. Sure, Republicans blocked the moratorium earlier, which is typical and no surprise, but we could have overruled them if we had held a House vote." The congresswoman also singled out President Joe Biden's administration, which didn't publicly call on Congress to extend the moratorium until last Thursday — a full month after the Supreme Court ruled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention could not continue the policy unilaterally. "We asked the Biden administration for their stance, and they were not being really forthright about that advocacy and that request until the day before the House adjourned," she said. "The House was put into a needlessly difficult situation."
  5. Now this should be today's anthem. It's a shame that cons undermine themselves with half of their arguments and are therefore not being taken seriously on others.
  6. He withheld the third reason to build up suspense. He's waiting for the proper moment for the big reveal. It will blow your mind.
  7. "The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States."
  8. If they can afford it. I would rather fund one procedure than support someone for 18 years. And that is just for starters. Mother, daycare, more kids, etc. People in favor of that tax burden should sign up for it. Not me.
  9. ^^^ Makes no sense. This is a health care issue. Not a 'Free Enterprise' issue. Now where's that wallet of yours?
  10. I have never disagreed with "Follow the money." So this may be a valid point.
