  1. But I thought Executive Order fixed it? Seriously, what's the play here?
  2. Then there will need to be emergency funding package from Congress. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
  3. He sold 30% of Americans on the idea that he would "Make America Great Again". He's trying to sell more Americans on the idea that he would "Keep America Great". Too many Americans weren't paying attention to the bullshit he did pre-COVID and of presented with it, even though it was shameful by any standard, they could rationalize it away as "business as usual in DC" (even though it isn't). Well, you can't sell "I made America great again" and "Keep America Great" if the kids aren't even in school. I think he could get away with 200,000 deaths because we're large enough and spread out enough to not be directly affected by many of those deaths, but everyone is affected by kids not being in school. He's trying to keep the con going, nothing more.
  4. Most current Republicans aren't smart enough to know who Eisenhower was, much less that he was a Republican.
  5. They all want to say something and sound like they're engaged, but nobody wants to be the adult and lead. Except a few superintendents: Northside ISD Superintendent: https://foxsanantonio.com/news/education/tea-guidance-about-school-funding-prompt-nisd-to-consider-legal-action
  6. I don't want to imagine a Surly that had a thread for every one of Trump's inane ADHD-spawned drivel tweets. + rep for the title though.
  7. Trey Gowdy? Marco Rubio couldn't make that mistake.
  8. Incredibly well stated. The only thing that I'd add is that his presidency proved that expertise matters. Finding the right people and putting them in place it's how you make point #1 happen. It also runs counter to the cronyism of how neo-conservatives (now Trump supporters) want the world to be run.
  9. Precisely. "My friend Karsten from middle school hasn't said anything on Facebook."
  10. Did they think that because none of their blacks friends were complaining?
  11. I've never gotten an answer from them. Closest I could imagine for them is Jeremiah Wright and Michelle saying she didn't feel American until BO was elected. Two things that other people said...
  12. Your momma so fat she fell in love and broke it.
  13. I don't fault Trump for not attending. It was the right call. I do fault him for creating the situation where nobody wanted him there.
