It’s amazing Afghanistan is dominating the news while the worst health crisis is still destroying so many lives. It’s also amazing news outlets are not using banner headlines about deranged governors outlawing mandates to protect public health.

US news outlets are sad the war is ending and the GOP is trying to deny science.

Mississippi Quarantines 20,000 With 5,993 Students Positive For COVID; Teen Deaths Rise

No one should be surprised by this… we did nothing after Sandy Hook. Still, it’s upsetting.

The Tomorrow War was terrible. I’m giving everyone in it a pass because there’s a pandemic and everyone’s gotta eat. But mercy did it stink. And there’s talk of a sequel? (Faints in time travel)

We sure do love our children so. I have no idea why I read the news.

America is a cruel, cruel country.

The proposed MCPS policy says families that do not qualify for federal free and reduced-price meal programs but have a lunch debt of more than $35 would get “alternative meals” — usually a sandwich rather than a hot meal — until the debt is paid.

But we do love our children so.

🍔👩🏾‍🦱🖕 USDA announces free lunch for all of next school year (2021-2022). Yay! Wait a minute… We could have done this all along but chose not to? Death cult is gonna death cult. #politics

☠️☠️☠️ I took a three-hour walk today with a friend. I was gone for just three hours. I came home to rest and read the news (which is never, ever restful). I used to say things like “The NRA is a death cult” or “The GOP is a death cult.” But you know what? The more I think about it and realize we aren’t doing anything to really help one another, all I’m now able to see is America is a death cult.

Best pandemic hobby!

I said to my wife tonight, “The only woman I’d leave you for is Jen Psaki.” And she said, “Yeah, that’s fine.” I married, and would leave, the right woman.

👴🗒📰 I watched President Biden’s press conference today and I have never been more embarrassed watching our national press than I was today.

Our national press writes about whatever the GOP wants to make the main issue of the day. What a joke.

Is 550,000 a lot?

Congratulations to Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. The best time to have her in this position was a long time ago, but the second best time was now. I’m so glad it happened. #Politics

💉👩🏻👍🏻 I got my first vaccination today. It was run so efficiently I was out of there in under 25 min (with the 15 min reaction wait included). Well done folks!

👩🏻‍🦰💪❤️ My word is Jen Psaki awesome. Awesome isn’t even the right word. She’s a true professional and I honestly can’t think of any other press secretary as good as she is. Or one who even comes close. I am most impressed with her ability to not say “You are full of you know what and you know it.”

It was years ago when McCain picked, somehow, Palin to be his running mate I began to hear the phrase “lame stream media.” While Palin (and her ilk) didn’t mean it the same way, our main stream media is lame as hell.

Take The New York Times. They suck. I’ll leave it at that… but boy do they suck.

If I swoon any harder over Jen Psaki I’m gonna pull a muscle. Please keep kicking ass, Jen.

How anyone can see the GOP as anything other than a death cult is beyond me. Hasn’t this guy overseen enough death?

America.

We sure do love our children so. (Narrator: They do not love their children so.)

Is 450,000 a lot?

GOP lawmakers seek to end mask mandate, public health emergency. Looks like there’ll be cheap land in Wisconsin soon.

🇺🇸🏛🤦 Is two a lot?

🇺🇸🏴‍☠️🇺🇸 The start of a civil war doesn’t get a date until history looks back on it. I’m guessing it’ll be around Jan 6, 2021, though.

🖕🖕🖕 No Republican is dumping Trump because they’ve suddenly found a conscience. He’s dead weight, so they’re cutting him loose. They still think like him. He’s lied, they’ve lied.
