Hand surgeon *and* marijuana entrepreneur
Dr marks was an occasional attending on Fridays when I was in dental school. Didnt really know him outside of clinics but he was one of my favorites. Loved to teach and let us get our hands dirty.
Fascism is when society as a whole won't embrace entrenched minority white rule
I cant believe this guy is our main representative for eye patch wearers. sad.
Education has been a commie Trojan horse for decades, yet the minority party still has a majority on the SCOTUS, has a trifecta recently, and keeps sucking but staying in power.
Fuck this piece of shit.
I thought the GOP hated the Anti-fascist, now they claim to hate fascist as well?
Also, wanting to make it easier for people to vote is now somehow fascism, we’re still stuck in the worst timeline.
Well, that's good. But the bare minimum I'd expect for the ATF director would be that he doesn't smoke and would like there to be less guns knocking around.
Though, I'd probably just fold the ATF into the FBI if I'm being honest.
I would personally not hire Gary Busey as director of the ATF
It’s like Busey and Matt Damon meshed into 1 person.
I think you just came up with an SNL sketch that would get 20 million plus view on youtube. "Matt Damon behaves like Gary Busey for 7 minutes," is a fucking banger.
I mean Team America World Police isn’t far off that mark
Yeah he was a cool guy. He had more guns than you can count. FBI used to come to him looking for rare guns to help investigate crimes.
The lack of self awareness is impressive.
No! The other minorities we hate!
that's shockingly accurate and now i can't unsee it
Watching them flail trying to find something that sticks since they don’t have black or female to attack at POTUS is funny. I guess the play will be attack the black, female VP.
Harris should follow the Rs lead and get some shit done. Go down to the border and ride around in a surveillance boat and look concerned.
Republicans have successfully weaponized the words communism and socialism against the Democratic Party. Anyone who knows anything will laugh at the idea of also calling those same people fascists but Americans would buy it. Americans don’t know what fascism means though. Sure the people who studied political science and history do. Or people who have an interest in history but does the average American know what fascism is? WW2 and our war against fascism ended in 1945. The Cold War and our war against communism ended in the 1990s. We also have plenty of immigrants who’ve escaped dangerous socialist regimes. Fascism is more dangerous but the key to the success of the Republican Party (uneducated American populous) means that the attack just doesn’t work. It’s also why the brand of fascism practiced by the Republican Party scares me so much. I have no doubt that fascism can happen in this country in the not so distant future and the people coming to power will be smarter, more disciplined, better organized and more ideologically motivated than trump. That scares the shit out of me.
that word does not mean what he thinks it does.
honestly should just say back "yes, priorities"
Wait, is Aaron Rogers hosting jeopardy?
It's all projection, part infinity
Vaccines and the deficit hurt our children...
What about the planet catching fire?
Nah, don’t care about that
What the hell
lake of Fn fire
Yes. I think they're rotating different guest hosts through rn. Him, Jennings, one of the exec. producers for the show. There will be others in future eps.
I just can't for a while today
This might have broken me
Basically all because black people voted
Have to say, the left getting Walmart is a real surprise.
"When were you radicalized"
"Well it was 1995 and we just learned that Maggie Simpson shot Mr. Burns and...."
integrity of election -> not too many POC or poors
1st amendment -> should be ok to storm Capitol and try to assassinate Ds (and Mike Pence)
I knew they were rotating I just didn’t know the Packers quarterback was somehow involved.
The message is simple, don’t rush to judgment on the cops, but please rush to judge the 13 year old kid.
And all the banks.
The "infantalizing" line is terrible, but his larger point isn't. There's no need to make the victims of police shootings into martyrs. That just opens the door for victim blaming. We should judge the shooting on the facts -- whether there was an imminent threat to the officer or another -- instead of whether the person "deserved" it. If fucking Hitler gave himself up and a cop shot him anyway, the cop should face consequences just the same as if it were your grandmother.
the irony of their boycott list becoming so long that it becomes impossible for any TRUE PATRIOT to be anything but a hypocrite to their self imposed purity of all things lib is hysterical when one of the TRUE PATRIOT’S biggest gotchas is the “you participate in society, curious!” line of thinking when it comes to any liberal
*Walmart is only grocery store / store within 30 miles, Bank of America is only bank branch in 20 miles.* “Bob, I see you went to Walmart, bought a Diet Coke, and stopped at Bank of America in the way home. Curious! You must not be a TRUE PATRIOT.”
Joe Manchin can choke on a pile of pig shit and die
Make the filibuster standing up and defending your position and not staffers sending emails to each other to indicate that an indefinite filibuster has started.
Of course, the drama queen doesn't address that at all in his op-ed.
Opinion by Joe Manchin III
April 7, 2021 at 11:40 p.m. UTC
Joe Manchin III, a Democrat, represents West Virginia in the Senate.
When Americans vote to send their two senators to Washington, they trust that they will work to represent the interests of their state on equal footing with 98 other senators. I have always said, “If I can’t go home and explain it, I can’t vote for it.” And I respect that each of my colleagues has the same responsibility to their constituents.
It’s no accident that a state as small as West Virginia has the same number of senators as California or Texas. It goes to the heart of what representative government is all about. The Founding Fathers understood that the challenges facing a rural or small state would always be very different from a more populous state. Designating each state with the same number of senators — regardless of the population — ensured that rural and small states and the Americans who live in them would always have a seat at the table.
The filibuster is a critical tool to protecting that input and our democratic form of government. That is why I have said it before and will say it again to remove any shred of doubt: There is no circumstance in which I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster. The time has come to end these political games, and to usher a new era of bipartisanship where we find common ground on the major policy debates facing our nation.
Think about the recent history. In 2013, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) led the charge to change Senate rules to eliminate the filibuster for Cabinet-level nominees and federal judges. I was one of only three Democratic senators to vote against this rule change. In 2017, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) proposed to lower the threshold to end debate on Supreme Court nominees to a simple majority. I voted against that change, too. Despite my votes, both rules changes were enacted and the filibuster was weakened, allowing the majority to more easily enact its agenda with little to no input from the minority.
Every time the Senate voted to weaken the filibuster in the past decade, the political dysfunction and gridlock have grown more severe. The political games playing out in the halls of Congress only fuel the hateful rhetoric and violence we see across our country right now. The truth is, my Democratic friends do not have all the answers and my Republican friends do not, either. This has always been the case.
Generations of senators who came before us put their heads down and their pride aside to solve the complex issues facing our country. We must do the same. The issues facing our democracy today are not insurmountable if we choose to tackle them together.
Unfortunately, our leaders in the Senate fail to realize what goes around comes around. We should all be alarmed at how the budget reconciliation process is being used by both parties to stifle debate around the major issues facing our country today. Legislating was never supposed to be easy. It is hard work to address the needs of both rural and urban communities in a single piece of legislation, but it is the work we were elected to do.
I simply do not believe budget reconciliation should replace regular order in the Senate. How is that good for the future of this nation? Senate Democrats must avoid the temptation to abandon our Republican colleagues on important national issues. Republicans, however, have a responsibility to stop saying no, and participate in finding real compromise with Democrats.
Working legislation through regular order in the Senate prevents drastic swings in federal policymaking. Voting rights reforms, instituting health-care protections and changes to the federal tax code and business regulations take time to implement on the state and local levels. If the filibuster is eliminated or budget reconciliation becomes the norm, a new and dangerous precedent will be set to pass sweeping, partisan legislation that changes the direction of our nation every time there is a change in political control. The consequences will be profound — our nation may never see stable governing again.
Senators introduce bipartisan bills that seek to invest in broadband infrastructure, tax incentives to spur manufacturing investments in rural communities, reform the Department of Veterans Affairs, protect our children from harm and more.
There is also bipartisan support for voting reform and many of the initiatives outlined in the For the People Act. Our ultimate goal should be to restore bipartisan faith in our voting process by assuring all Americans that their votes will be counted, secured and protected. Efforts to expand voting hours and access, improve our election security and increase transparency in campaign finance and advertisement rules should and do have broad, bipartisan support and would quickly address the needs facing Americans today. Taking bipartisan action on voting reform would go a long way in restoring the American people’s faith in Congress and our ability to deliver results for them.
We will not solve our nation’s problems in one Congress if we seek only partisan solutions. Instead of fixating on eliminating the filibuster or shortcutting the legislative process through budget reconciliation, it is time we do our jobs.
If he has stopped before that line, it would have been fine. After that he's just flat out offering comparisons to similarly aged criminals and saying how dangerous black kids can be. You give him more credit than he deserves.
