Why do these people continue to vote for people who don't care about them? Ted Cruz is so awful.

I'm trying REALLY hard to not pin it down to them just being STUPID. Like I just wanna understand.

Apparently in his way back already :D

Must have forgotten something because there’s no way that GRUB feels SHAME.

I read some quote (I can’t remember who said it) about Americans seeing themselves as millionaires who temporarily don’t have money

Yes, Americans love the razzle-dazzle. So many love being fooled by sheisty male politicians. It's the "boys will be boys" mentality.

I think the UK has a very similar mindset towards the rich TBH. It's why so many people will blame the EU and migrants for all their problems, but transparently corrupt oligarchs like Boris and Rees-Mogg basically get a pass.

Anyway, fuck Ted Cruz.

Also @RJN did you see that David Perdue has already registered to contest Warnock's senate seat next year?

Wonder if he'll show up to any debates this time? :eyes:

It's like how an audience WANTS to be fooled by the magician, even though they secretly know it's all bullshit. I'm sure there's a fancy psychological term for it.

yep I saw that... I’m kind of happy though. Now that he’s seen as a loser, he has a lower chance of winning than another Republican might. It’ll be like Karen Handle all over again.

Will he debate? Will debates even happen any more? Who can say

The images of fully frozen interiors of houses is insane. Are they made of STRAW?

In further beyond parody news, apparently not wishing to freeze to death in your own home = SOCIALISM!


He’s the mayor of one of the affected towns :D

Fucking asshole. The Republican Party can claim to be the party of the people as much as they want, this is who they really are

I'm loving the division amidst the Republican Party atm. So many people are turning against McConnell for blaming Trump. You reap what you sow bitch.

It seems like a certain group of politicians don’t realize that posting on social media means that everyone can read it?

Waiting patiently for Trump’s statement that the cold weather in Texas is a sign that Global Warming is a hoax :eyes:

To be fair, his comments on the minimum wage were regarding getting it into the current COVID relief package - and he was just acknowledging that due to the opposition of Democratic senators Kirsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, they have a very low probability of getting it through.

Also, the single parent thing is just because the bill gives a cheque to every adult. So obviously a single parent home would get less. A big flaw of course, but it's a feature, not a design.

Actually I misread the substance of the package - families get a cheque for every child, so while it probably does cost a bit more to be a single parent, they're actually set to receive the same amount of support per child as a two-parent family would.

It was a retaliatory attack, I’m not sure what the ISSUE is? In what world do you think America is not going to respond to an attack on them in this way?

As usual there are plenty of liberals who care more about civility and optics than imperialist killings:
