Look, you can rant about the “the Republican Party” all you want, and blame them for not living up to their promises, but if you are exempting Trump from those criticisms then you’re as much of a gutless squish as the people you’re complaining about
The fact is that Trump ran as a “law and order” candidate but when rampaging mobs destroyed our city he spent most of them time tweeting the words “law and order” and bragging about the prison reform bill he worked on with Kim Kardashian.
He also supported the lockdowns after opposing them, and handed his government over to Fauci and Birx even while still whining about them on twitter and in Fox interviews.
If you have given Trump a pass for this and everything else, I’m just not impressed with your tough guy posturing towards “the cowards in the Republican Party.”

For anyone too stupid to understand the point, the reason we are talking about the followers we're losing is because Twitter is quite obviously engaged in an unprecedented purge of accounts, or else is manipulating our accounts, and yet has not explained what they're doing or why
Here's how many followers I've lost over the past few days. It is entirely reasonable for me to be concerned about this and to want to know why this is happening.
I don't buy that all of these people are choosing to delete their accounts in protest or whatever. But if that's what's happening though, Twitter should just say so. Instead they issued a bullshit statement about "fluctuations" due to security measures.

Name a song where the cover is better than the original. I nominate "Hallelujah" (Buckley > Cohen) and "Me and Bobby McGee" (Joplin > Kristofferson).
This one is a little more obscure but this cover of John Prine is better than the original in my opinion. And I usually tend to prefer the Prine originals over the covers.

Another slightly more obscure nominee: Cowboy Junkies version of "Powderfinger" over the Neil Young original

Dems open congress with a prayer that ends “amen and awoman.” Amen is a Latin word that means “truly” or “so be it.” Awoman is a nonsense word that means nothing. Dems find a way to make everything stupid and nonsensical. Utter clowns, all of them.

I’m now being corrected that “amen” originated in Hebrew and then passed through Greek and Latin into English usage. I need to brush up on my etymology but the point is that the word is not gendered and this PC change is incoherent and absurd.
Can anyone interpret the first part of this? He says "We ask it in the name of the monotheistic God"... and who? It sounds like he says "Brahma," as in the Hindu god, but I can't be sure.

At some point it was decided that we are now supposed to tip everyone everywhere. I was not consulted about this change and do not approve.
I’m a generous tipper to waiters, pizza delivery people, Uber and cab drivers, and hotel staff. But I’m not sure why I’m supposed to tip someone for running a cash register or pouring me a coffee.
Waiters, bar tenders, drivers, etc, can do a poor or excellent job, and you can gauge your tip accordingly. But there is no poor or excellent way to fill a cup with coffee and hand it to me, or punch something into a cash register. What am I rewarding you for exactly?

It blows my mind every time a conservative voices an opinion that’s deeply unpopular with their audience and then gets accused of being a “shill” and a “sell out” for it. Whether they’re right or wrong, taking an unpopular stance is the exact opposite of shilling and selling out.
Of course it’s different if someone pulls a Lincoln Project and becomes a full time promoter of leftism. That’s selling out because they’ve traded one audience for (they hope) a bigger one.
But a conservative who veers from the right wing consensus on one particular issue, and takes enormous blowback for it from his own audience, is really bad at selling out if that’s his game. Most likely, he’s just being honest. You should respect that even if you disagree.

You can either be on this guy’s side or on the side of the tyrants who rule us. I know which side I choose.

What I love about this video is that it isn’t performance. He isn’t an activist. He isn’t strutting for the cameras or shouting into a microphone. He’s just a business owner trying to survive. Extremely compelling.
If you live anywhere within 100 miles of this place, please go and give him your business. He's getting fined 1000 dollars a day. He needs to sell a lot of food to make up for it.
