Wow. Some internal combustion aficionado you are.
Yes, because the public backlash led Congress to make changes to the president’s proposed budget. But under the president’s budget all funding to Meals on Wheels was going to be cut, but I’m sure you don’t care about that because your support has nothing to do with his policies.
he already got fired? for what?
He got fired within like 24 hours. For saying racist shit.
there’s plenty of money without the Feds at our mow. Now with the Fed money we’re just being wasteful. Fundraising from the BOT is booming
FUCK did I miss that
dude, this was months ago
You should tell all of this to the CEO of Meal on Wheels because she doesn’t seem to think they are being wasteful.
Like I said, you don’t care about Trump’s policies, you’re into him for other reasons.
i know and I missed his firing
i didn’t say a thing about mow nationwide. I said our meals on wheels is flush. They do Mardi Gras parties, poker runs on the lake, etc etc for fundraising and have plenty of money. A family member is on the local mow board. I deliver meals with that family member.
I like the policies of republicans. I don’t like Trump at all as a person. I don’t want higher taxes, “free” college, or MFA. I don’t want all the crazy restrictions, gun control, etc from the Democrats. It isn’t about liking Trump as a person. I don’t. It’s about not liking the policies of any of the Democratic candidates.
Higher taxes: why not?
Free undergrad at public schools: why not?
M4A: why not?
Gun control: why not? (this is supported by a vast majority of republicans as well)
Just looking for some nuance from you
Who could have predicted Trump would be such a bad crisis manager? Everyone, actually.
You don’t seem to know what the democrat’s policies really are, you claim to want better background checks for guns but here you claim to be against gun control. Perhaps you should educate yourself on what democrat’s policies are and stop relying on your relatives and Fox News.
Also it’s comical that you don’t care about MoW as a whole, I guess as long as you’re getting yours fuck everyone else.
I don’t want capacity restrictions, rifle/handgun restrictions, suppressor restrictions, basically any restrictions. I want mental health funding (something neither party has given us). It’s a crime we don’t have more mental health funding.
So you want no restrictions on guns despite all the mass shootings in the past but want voter ID laws despite voter fraud not being a problem?
Can you explain why you don't think we should have capacity or suppressor restrictions?
Also as to the not caring about mow from the deleted part of your post I believe in taking care of your own. I do care about the other meals on wheels programs but see nothing stopping them from electing board members that can handle a little fundraising. Not expecting/wanting/liking a government handout isn’t somehow the negative you attempt to make it
have restrictions helped the mass shootings? Mental health funding would help.
Who said a single thing about voter id laws? Take the bullshit and make believe to another thread. As a clear democrat without telling me so do you agree with and like every single issue from every politician in your party? I’d hope not so you can save yourself the shitty effort you’ve given so far
-Participates in a service based on providing food to strangers in need.
-Believes in "taking care of your own."
There was nothing deleted in my post. But interesting that you don’t think mow should take government money but the one that you volunteer for and have a family member on the board does take government money, why do you still support them? Btw, that “take care of your own” comment is quite telling.
Republicans: destroy mental health facilities to cut taxes
Democrats: lack the spine to raise taxes to fix it
Kyle: why would both parties not support mental health
Person 1: “I believe in communities banding together and giving their time and money to people in need in their community”
Person 2: “This is literally what governments do with taxes but on a bigger and more effective scale than can possibly done by individuals.”
Person 1: “Sounds like communism. Fuck the government. MAGA!”
“Accepting handouts from your neighbors is noble. Accepting handouts from your neighbors but facilitated by the government is shameful.”
- Kyle in this thread and real life.
Would restrictions help mass shootings? We will never know because this country refuses to do it.
As to the voter ID laws, you claimed that you like republican policies and that’s a major republican policy, if I ever claimed to like democrat’s policies then you can feel free to question me on why I support whatever democrat policy you want to. And btw, I am a democrat and not because the democrats are great, they fucking suck but at least they’re not running concentration camps at the border and actively trying to suppress the votes of people that look like me.
Hey guys Kyle sucks but he’s polite about it so it’s ok
Yes, see 50+ other countries that have tried it.
Please give if a list of countries where it made it worse.
Prepare for the obligatory what about Chicago response.
Right, we are talking places with borders, not US states.
those are my town’s citizens aka my own.
Are you an American? Are Americans not your own as well? Or do you draw the line in another arbitrary place?
A car that goes 0-60 in like 2 seconds is boring?
car culture is dumb, please respect my views
mine is around four which is more than fast enough considering I never care to completely floor it from a dead stop. Going sub 3 in perfect conditions in a Tesla with no rumble, no feeling, no scariness isn’t close to the same.
also yes taking care of people locally is how it should be. It isn’t forced on me or the people that do it with me. That’s how it should be. We do it because we can and because we care. Some people don’t have the privilege to be able to. I don’t believe anyone should be forced to. We have a great board that raises money very effectively and runs a good show. Money being handed to you can and will never be turned down by a nonprofit but for some it’s unnecessary and should be so to all
the sense of community in much of this country has gone to shit. Many events cater only to the wealthy or a certain group and there’s little serving your own. I think we need more inter community involvement and people need to serve, help, and take care of their own communities. Anderson, SC knows a hell of a lot more of what we need than the federal government does. Why should we send more of our money to the feds only for them to send it back and elsewhere? We shouldn’t.
Why do I want the federal government in control of everything? I’m not so lazy that I need that. I’m involved in quite a bit in the community and enjoy it. People should get more involved and quit wanting the feds to take control of every aspect. I mean open your eyes. Almost everything in DC is a complete fucking disaster right now. I don’t care if you’re republican or Democrat. They’re all a bunch of whiny little bitches who work together about as well as two 13 year old girls with a crush on the same guy. Sorry bud but that DC clown show isn’t where I want so many decisions affecting my life to come from. Why so many of you want to send them even more of your money for the idiots to be in control of even more important aspects of your life I’ll never understand or agree with. That’s just me
Again I do not hate any of you or even dislike you due to your political beliefs. We all have our reasons and beliefs. I’m not here to attack or call any of you names I simply am not scared to admit I’ll still vote republican. Obviously I can read the tone around here and know I’m in the minority especially considering the few that feel the same are probably too afraid to say as much. It’s an extremely imperfect political world but unfortunately it’s the one we have
You never answered any of my questions, pal.
imagine saying meals on wheels is being wasteful.
The arbitrary boundary of community and "us" is fascinating. Once you cross that county line granny can starve, I don't give a shit. We are a community but move a town over and you're dead to me
who are some known trumpers still around?
dukebuckeye killerwvu Merica
you dumb motherfuckers still confident in trump?
he literally might die because of his own stupidity lmfao
As I said we need to bring more of a focus back on community. It seems you and others want everyone to be lazy and just look to the feds for help. I don’t want them to need to help anyone. The lack of self expectations these days is the root of most of our problems. I’d know. I was a lazy shithead for far too long. We have some shitty situations. There’s an area in SC where the schools are still almost fully segregated. The public schools are beyond awful and the private schools are very nice (Corridor of Shame if anyone wants a cite). The local/state/federal government that’s supposed to be helping hasn’t done shit that has worked and that place has been an abomination for many years. If it’s ever going to be fixed it is up to the community. Feds can throw all the money they want and it’ll still be a shit hole.
you're a fucking idiot, kyle
No, I never have been confident in him. Hindsight though, yes, I'd still vote for him over Hillary.
maybe someone close to you dying because the guy you'd still vote for was more worried about his reelection chances than doing his job will change your mind
