Personally, I think it's assholes that confuse disagreeing with ignoring that are the problem. No one is silencing you or ignoring you by not agreeing with you, and acting like they are just makes you a petulant child.

What a bunch of dipshiats.

What Youngkin's election means is that Republicans can have their racist cake and eat it, too. Keep the blatant stuff to their dedicated propaganda outlets and on the DL in the mainstream press (ie CRT). And suburban women are comfortable so they justify voting Republican because an orange skinned racist pig isn't on top of the ticket.

Honestly, even for Biden voters, backlash against governors who implemented lockdowns and restrictions was inevitable.  A lot of people's businesses were destroyed as a result of the restrictions such as restaurants, doctor's offices, etc.  Additionally, people's careers were disrupted due to kids being at home last year.

All in all, the COVID lockdowns were a net positive for society but there was a LOT of collateral damage and the animosity of those negatively impacted is real.  I am lucky that I was able to work from home (and my job performance actually went up) and had a very good POD school situation last year.  However, others in my family were absolutely struggling and my Dentist had to sell the building she owned and now works out of another practice.  Yeah, anecdotes != statistics but I think there are a lot of people that

1. Lost or almost lost their businesses because of shutdown
2. Caught COVID and it wasn't that bad for them
3. Don't know anyone personally who died from it.

Those people hate their governors for saving the lives of other millions of people at the expense of their livelihoods.  The Governors probably knew this and made the BRAVE decision to make the hard, correct choices.  Now if only Senators and Representatives would show the same courage.

Because by voting for Biden, against their better judgment mind you, things didn't magically return to "normal" after he took the oath of office.  This obviously means God is not on his side.

I've heard the tune that goes "I want it to be easier for me, and they said it would be easier for me." Problem is, it never actually is easier, it's an empty promise, but that works when you have an semi-educated (I.e. college graduate, but likely with an unproductive degree, likely well removed from the professional workforce, or some variation).

This tune pairs well with "I want everything but don't want to pay for it" for the people constantly complaining about how much actually running a society (no, not just taxes, everything- goods, labor, healthcare, and so on) costs, but instead of having a suggestion to reduce the cost, they personally want a discount.

At the end of the day if there had been two additional democratic senators to pass the Big Bill this wouldn't have happened.

And I don't actually blame Manchin and Senima too much (but a little though).
Gerrymandering and the absolutely dumb way Senators are apportioned in the US is going to keep the politics in that country on a knifes edge even thought the population is much more centrist and possibly slightly left of center (though US politics is generally more on the right side of things globally) for a long time coming.

I don't see how the US is going to avoid the second half of their bloody revolution that just had a longish pause. You are going to be faced with a rural RW minority trying to force regressive and (lets be frank) punishing policies on an urban LW majority.
 
2021-11-08 8:12:28 AM  
Does subby... think that single income households are a norm in any part of the US? Because that hasn't been true since the 1920s and hasn't been true even for white people specifically since the 1980s, and no, that being when Reagan was president isn't a coincidence, he's the one that farked that up for us white folk.

The people interviewed by news specifically are gonna be dumbfarks because that's a prerequisite to news channel attention, but people needing schools open for basic childcare reasons is a very real economic problem, and one everyone left of hitler pretty explicitly brought up immediately when lockdowns became obviously necessary. This is why the more recent fiscal relief takes the form of a childcare subsidy specifically.

Minimizing this concern (or at least the less stupid version of it) is not a good idea. A lot of families are currently in the position of either abandoning the kids at home (illegal) or not being able to feed them if schools aren't open, because there is quite literally no other viable child care option.
