(Twitter)   Political speak can sometimes be confusing. Thankfully, Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) does a great job of translating Sen. Tom Cotton's (well R-ounded) latest set of talking points   (twitter.com) divider line

OMG, that's a brilliant translation!

Oh that's gonna leave a mark

I didn't know they did Roast Battles in Congress.


But seriously, why aren't there more mining and logging jobs in D.C.?
 
2021-04-23 11:39:17 AM  
Sure there are more people in DC but those people don't have the kind of jobs that Republican voters usually have.  Oh, and they are black too.

The latest R talking point is that D.C. should be merged with Maryland so D.C. can have representation in the legislature.  They are abandoning the workforce argument and just moving to "Ok, merge it with Maryland."
 
2021-04-23 1:03:45 PM  
Why are there no jobs as sherpas or gondoliers in DC?
 
2021-04-23 1:04:12 PM  
I can almost hear the whining start.  Tom Cotton's jimmies were rustled!
 
2021-04-23 1:05:21 PM  
Okay, Wyoming does have more logging, mining, and manufacturing jobs than Washington DC. Now let's list all the categories DC has more jobs than Wyoming.

What a BS comparison. Cotton's such an asshole, he's clearly going to run in 2024.

And Jones' rebuttal was perfect.

Tom Cotton proves time and again that he's racist AF.

I guess that's progress.

Too bad neither DC or Maryland want that.

So a state can't be a state if it fails to meet the requisite number of miners and lumberjacks?

Well, that's certainly...

...original.

They really should have a massive fertilizer industry in DC. Cover the whole Midwest every year.

"go back to where you came from" is and always will be based in racism/bigotry/xenophobia

He's got a point. I also find it amusing that the party so upset with how political correctness has take over is also the party that goes to great lengths not to just say "Whites Only" by disguising it with a dog whistle whenever they can.

Anything to justify their cause but still allows them to tell themselves "I'm not racist".

It's like Fox News. "Not racist" but #1 with Racist.

At least D.C.'s forests are all raked.

You're too kind.  I was thinking some rock salt, vigorously applied would help.

Yeah, but it's ran by a democrats mayor, that's why those rioters were allowed to attack the capital building on January 6th. If a Republican was in charge that wouldn't have happened.

They have something in common with a whole lotta Farkers, then. At least two people in every thread push that asinine "solution."

Rep. Jody Hice of Georgia is staunchly opposed to statehood for Washington DC, an opinion shared by most congressional Republicans.
"DC would be the only state - the only state - without an airport, without a car dealership, without a capital city and without a landfill," he argued.


...Wat?

Today I learned that statehood requires a certain percentage of timber and mining jobs.
 
2021-04-23 1:25:31 PM  
They really have nothing other than "We don't want two more Democratic senators" and "But they're Black."

I can't wait to see what we'll learn when it's Puerto Rico's turn at bat

DC's GDP is larger than Wyoming and both Dakotas combined.

Oddly enough, one of the problems republicans have with DC statehood has to do with its too many Timberlands.

THEY ARE NOT CONSERVATIVE! They are hateful criminals who aren't very smart.
