Parenting is work. I bet yours tried hard and I don’t blame them for what you have become.
Marco and the others gave away billions in tax cuts to the mega rich but refuse to help out ordinary people with the equivalent of pennies.
A lot of people will still buy this Republican fiction that parents and the disabled aren’t doing “work,” but I feel like millions after having gone through the mortgage crisis and now COVID are understanding how full of it Team Marco is.
Some background on this distortion here…

#PresidentBiden powerfully signing executive orders, STRONGLY ignoring his SAD critics who don't want him to WORK HARD for America. He is RELENTLESS!!! #SigningDocs #SignSignSign #FortySix #SignedAnotherOne #MABA ⭐️⭐️⭐️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
"Mr President, sir, what are you doing? Enjoying the night, sir?"

"No, I am reviewing documents. Constantly reviewing documents of all lengths, the people sent me here to work and so I work!"


#MABA #FortySix #AlwaysDocuments ⭐️⭐️⭐️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Image
"I told Joe to come over and pet the dog, but that was three hours ago, I know he'll eventually come and pet the pooch but he's very busy SIGNING DOCUMENTS FOR THE PEOPLE" ⭐️⭐️⭐️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Image

like with political "news" it also shows you that 24 hour news is not news. its about 15 seconds of news for every 3 hrs of breathless uninformed speculation and argument
i have an almost religious fervor about telling people to stop watching cable news. there is no upside to it and it is extremely addictive.
some shows are worse than others but as an overall venue for information, there's almost nothing worse. yes, even twitter/facebook.

its probably the pilgrims' fault but holy hell america has to kick this thing where we insist that life must be hard. i feel like whether you believe in God or not, the point of human existence is not just endless toil.
one of my closest friends and i are from immigrant families and something i tell him all the time is our parents came to this country and often did what would be regarded as "menial" work so that we could be educated and have a better life.
my mom used to tell me that one of her proudest moments was when i surpassed what she had earned and i did it by not having to do back-breaking labor.

now multiply that by the people who have much deeper roots than i.

In ten years you’re still going to have liberals believing something is going to happen to Trump on the legal front “soon.”
Every time I post on this people are like “so you think he didn’t do anything wrong?” And it’s like... no, he’s obviously guilty as sin but we have a limited amount of time to devote to things and wishcasting about some unlikely fantasy scenario detracts from real things.

my only real context for the woody allen issue is one of my earlier political memories is slimy newt gingrich using the story as a club to hit liberals with…
that was the first time i learned about how in politics you can use current events as a way to slipstream in an attack. i went on for the next nearly 30 yrs to see republicans use it over and over and dems... not.
this shit isn't new and democrats really never bother with it. they just are shocked by it over and over again.

me, in the senate: judge garland, do you believe that spider-man has the statutory authority to legally do everything a spider can?

(this might be why im not a senator)
judge garland, i know you are aware of the x gene. if you are confirmed, what will you do to address our mutant problem? i am on the bipartisan committee to authorize and fund the sentinel project.
judge garland will you commit to us today that you will reign in this rampant vigilantism we're seeing, particularly in gotham city?
