AOC: I am a little embarrassed to post this, because I try to ignore nasty people. But damn, as a military mom, this self-aborbed nitwit’s sneering really raises my blood pressure. The 116th Congress has 91 military veterans serving; 74 are in the House and 17 are in the Senate. More than two-thirds of them are Republicans.
My kids wore 50 to 75 pounds of gear into war zones where the temperature rose well above 100 degrees. To prepare for this, they trained for months, doing rigorous PT and having super fun hikes while wearing their full gear. And when they were in a war zone, they didn’t do “doubles”, they were just on duty. And when they cried, it was because a battle buddy had been blown to bits by an IED.
So far as I can tell, bar tenders spend a lot of hours on their feet (just like the doctors and nurses who are now serving in Congress), but apart from hauling cartons of full bottles, I can’t think of anything particularly strenuous about tending bar. How dare she make like the previous careers of not just doctors, nurses, and military veterans, but also law enforcement officers, fire fighters, astronauts, farmers, fishermen, and professional athletes are somehow vastly inferior. That only former bartenders know what real work and real suffering is. AGHHH!
Since getting elected to Congress, AOC has had her butt parked in a leather chair all day the same as the rest of them. And also like them, she has had gold-plated, “not Obamacare” health insurance. Now, I have no problem believing that while she was a bartender, she couldn’t afford health insurance. But that time of her life lasted only 5 years.
My husband is a self-employed architect who couldn’t afford health insurance for the decades he was responsible for a disabled wife and helping to raise 3 kids. He’s got Medicare now, but you know what? While he had no health insurance, we for damn sure made sure he had health care. Because health insurance and health care are two very different things.
BOWIE: [3:22] – I hate what some people do to dogs … but I love to see their rescue stories that end with them happy and healthy.
DAN BONGINO: Interview with Mike Flynn – One hour embedded at the link: “In this exclusive interview with General Mike Flynn we cover Barack Obama’s bizarre fascination with Gen. Flynn, Gen. Flynn’s battles to fix the intell community, the 2015 CIS dinner where Lokhova was present, and the real reason Jim Comey targeted Flynn.”
GEORGIA: Fulton County [17:40] – The attorney does a good job of explaining what is going on in the composites of the surveillance videos from absentee and military ballot counting.
Trump’s attorneys are filing to have the Georgia election deemed void due to overwhelming voter fraud. The Constitution has a remedy for the situation, which is to have the state’s legislature select the state’s electors.
But keep in mind that Facebook Fact Checkers said there’s nothing to see here, so just keep on moving’, stupid Republican people.
ALSO, the story at the third link below says the Trump team got hold of one of Georgia’s Dominion voting machines. A forensic examination proved the machine DID switch votes from Trump to Biden.
KAMALA FOR PRESIDENT: The Dems never planned for Joe to actually be president. CLICK https://twitter.com/kayleighmcenany/status/1334700028129112065 [1:20] to hear him admit it.
MICHIGAN: [6:43] – Melissa Carone testified before Michigan State Senate Committee about 2020 election. “What I witnessed at the Centre was complete fraud. Batches of the same ballots counted multiple times, 8 – 10 times. THE WHOLE 27 HOURS NOT ONE SINGLE BALLOT FOR DONALD TRUMP!!! That is scary.”
OREGON: The Oregon Medical Board has indefinitely revoked a doctor’s license after finding that he and his staff refused to wear face coverings during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and encouraged patients visiting his clinic to remove theirs, concluding he is “a serious danger” to public health.
PENNSYLVANIA: More than 70 members of Pennsylvania’s state House and Senate have signed a dramatic letter to the members of their state’s delegation in the United States Congress. It calls on them to OBJECT to, and vote to sustain the objection to, certification of the electoral college votes from Pennsylvania.
POWELL: Sidney talks about her share of the latest election fraud fight.
USA TODAY: USA Today also published a silly “fact check” this week quibbling with the 100% accurate claim that “several Democratic politicians urge social distancing and issuing stay-at-home advisories but host or attend gatherings” because REPUBLICANS don’t always practice social distancing!
The big difference obviously being that Republicans are generally NOT imposing draconian (and probably unconstitutional) lock down mandates on their citizenry so they’re not being Big Fat Hypocrites when they live their lives as they choose.
WILLIAMS: RIP – “There was a time when the black conservative community would have consisted of me and Walter Williams. I know Walter used to say the two of us should never fly on the same plane otherwise the whole movement will disappear if the plane goes down.” – Thomas Sowell
YOUTUBE: OANN is moving to Rumble. And for good reason. The thugs at YouTube barred One America News Network from posting new videos on its YouTube channel, suspended OANN from the Partner program, AND suspended its ability to monetize its existing content. The network’s “crime” was to publicize a cure for COVID-19.
GRAMMY NOTES: Mama’s church ladies group had their saint peg doll exchange. Bunny and Bootz got out their Jesus doll to meet His saints. Mama is going to be introducing us to one saint at a time, starting tomorrow with a 15 year old boy who was martyred during the communist attempt to stamp out the faith in Mexico.
