(Politico)   Devin Nunes calls the decision to close CA schools for the rest of the year to slow the pandemic "way overkill". His mom and his cow gently suggest that maybe when discussing a deadly plague, he should chose a different turn of phrase   (politico.com) divider line

"I mean, look, the schools were just canceled out here in California, which is, you know, way overkill," Nunes, a Republican, told Oh no! You shanked my jengaship! host Laura Ingraham. "I mean, you know, it's possible kids could've went back to school in two weeks to four weeks, but they just canceled the rest of the schools."

For a Nazi, his grammar is disgraceful.

He should hold a rally

Way? No way!

I think Nunez should go back to school, he clearly needs it.

I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications
Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know will be Jake
Perhaps it's just imagination
Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

Ambivalence: I think Nunez should go back to school


He seems like he'd be the character in a John Hughes movie that stands uselessly behind the bully and says, "Yeah...yeah...get him!  Beat him up good!"

Devin Nunes should be forced to treat coronavirus sufferers without PPE.

Is it even possible that Chaos Goblin is smarter than someone?

As long as Limbaugh and Nunez are still alive, I'll call it underkill.

The relentless opposition is a part the Republicans have a lot of practice playing.
 
2020-04-01 11:48:58 AM  
Are they completely closed?  Or on distance learning for the rest of the year?

Ambivalence: Way? No way!

I think Nunez should go back to school to Italy, Spain, or Belorussia, he clearly needs it.

If you're as stupid as Devin Nunes, keeping your mouth shut is usually the best option. Unfortunately he's tooi stupid to think of that.

You come on a national broadcast as a representative of Congress, a national leader, supposedly, to dispense your assessment of the healthcare guidance in the middle of a global pandemic, and you're not even well versed enough to know the names of the drug protocol you're supporting. Nunes is a Gasr.

There's a quote I read before all this started.  It went something like

"In the beginning, everything you do to fight a pandemic seems alarmist.  By the end, you realize it wasn't enough"

Let's not go nuts. Nunez has demonstrated he is just as smart as Chaos Goblin, has an affinity for cosplaying the Fruitfarker.

Devin, many people are going to die due to this disease.  The dead can't vote.  But those that remember the dead can.  Keep that in mind and keep your mouth shut.

As a high school teacher, I would argue that they are the same thing. Distance learning is shiat.

I saw one last week where a doctor said something along the lines of "If after all of this is over, we wonder 'what was it all for?', we will know it worked"

I don't know about California, but here in Washington my kid's school is completely out of operation. They have serious misgivings about distance learning for equity reasons. Not every kid has access to the necessary technology - hell, a substantial number of the students in our district don't even have homes.

Every time someone makes a Gas about how Y2K was a big nothing, I remember the months I spent combing through old code.  I smirk and resist the urge to say "You're welcome"

So Cal is closed for the year and districts in CA tend to follow other districts.

Nunes is the epitome and shining example of a stupid, asshole republican piece of schitt.

If there was a god, Nunez would be trapped under an overturned manure hauler on Hwy 99 and be forced to eat his way out, then die of C-19.
 
2020-04-01 12:18:36 PM  
It is past time to get pissed off at this Applesauce!. The "media" should paper the airways asking how many have to die before the GOP take this seriously and stop using Oh no! You shanked my jengaship! as a podium to demonize democrats, downplay the virus and efforts to contain it.

He's pretty middle of the road as far as CA Republicans go.
 
2020-04-01 12:28:32 PM  
Possible they could, yes.

It's also possible that Representative Nunes could pull a Dwyer. However, that doesn't say much about whether or not either would be a good thing under the future circumstance of the time it prospectively happens.

As a sped teacher I concur.

You shanked my jengaship! host Laura Ingraham. "I mean, you know, it's possible kids could've went back to school in two weeks to four weeks, but they just canceled the rest of the schools."

What TFA says: " California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond issued a letter Tuesday to county education leaders saying that it appears for now students will not return to campuses this school year. Thurmond did not cancel the academic year, however; such decisions are typically left to the more than 1,000 school districts in California. "

Schools are not canceled. He has no clue what he's talking about.

Okay, I am aware of the "grapefruit farking" origins, but why does "More Than Words" keep popping up in Nunes threads?

My daughter is in college there and was a paid teaching assistant.  She lost her job and is now taking classes online.  She agrees that the schools should be closed.

She's going to school to become an epidemiologist so I think she's going to be a good one.

I can't second +1 this enough. We are going nuts with bureaucratic crapola via Zoom and our governor can't shut it all down soon enough.

My hope is that this is a wake-up call to lousy parents everywhere. Invest in your kids' education, lest they wind up another Nunes.
