The list of Americans cheering for the Taliban now includes Boebert and Flynn.

This vote is no different than the efforts to prevent the certification of Biden's elections. They run against all possible US interests.
And all who participated in these actions are doing exactly what they planned to do: put millions of Afganies in harms way and use that to undermine US democracy. They are traitors.

I've been meaning to write this thread for a while. The attacks on "new math" and "Common core" were early iterations of the current breathtakingly stupid anti-vax and anti-mask stupidity. Bear with me. A thread.
In 2015, the most pathetic, racist, neo-confederate a-holes in the country were railing about "common core."…
I am on record as NOT A FAN OF GWB, but Common Core was an aspect of No Child Left Behind (a GWB initiative) in which the Feds tried to impose on States a minimum educational standard in math, comprehension and critical thinking.

If Justice Barrett is sincere (lolz) in her concern that SCOTUS will be perceived as partisan, I am sure she will come out in favor of expanding the number of justices to assure that a broad array of view points is represented.
If Justice Barrett is sincere (lolz) in her concern that SCOTUS will be perceived as partisan, I am sure she will come out strongly in favor of SCOTUS justices adopting rigorous ethics guidelines and financial disclosures.
If Justice Barrett is sincere (lolz) in her concern that SCOTUS will be perceived as partisan, I am sure she could stop appearing alongside viciously partisan politicians in buildings named for viciously partisan politicians in viciously partisan politician's home states.

Republicans sacrificed what they claim to believe "freedom from government" for what they actually believe "heavy handed government intervention and vigilantiism" and it should hang like an anchor on every Republican candidate forever. A thread.
SCOTUS has recognized the idea of a right to privacy: "The Constitution does not explicitly mention any right of privacy... [but we recognize] a right of personal privacy, or a guarantee of certain areas or zones of privacy, does exist under the Constitution."
Rs endless waive the flag of fundamental personal rights that are encompassed by the Constitution, even though they are not stated there. The Second Amendment is a great example - it talks about guns, but not as a private personal consitutional right.

I'm wearing the rose-colored glasses. Biden is making lemonade out of death lemons. And the camera wielding vultures seeking misery can F off. A thread.
If you suddenly learned that the Taliban launched an offensive that reached Kabul before we really started to pull out US people and allies - what would you expect? You'd expect to hear of mass-casualties; street battles; beheadings; people thrown off buildings; US troops dead.
None of that has happened.

I'll take shxt framing for $500, Alex.

Can't news organizations or opinion writers EVER see what is going on?…
So just looking at the top line - it's not that bad, and the picture at least highlights the Trump era capitulation meeting, and highlights the plight of the Afghan people as it should. But egads it goes down hill from there.
There's this "There's no question that much of the fault lies with President Joe Biden." FAULT FOR WHAT? Supposedly poor contingency planning and a "humiliating rush for the exits for the US."
