Mike Lee is a piece of shiat

I think this mormon jackass just has a problem with the term man-date. Can't get past it.

"Look what you made me do!  I didn't want to hit you, baby, but you just wouldn't do what I told you."

The mandate supported by 60% of the country? Go for it.
 
2021-12-02 1:51:07 PM  
So he wants his amendment to pass with 50 votes now...
 
2021-12-02 1:51:48 PM  
Is this shiatebag running for President on the Q ticket?  This is like telegraphing the intent.

Of course, he's actually one of the core Insurrectionist Congresspeople.  The Feds and Justice Department moving like molasses is the only reason he hasn't been charged.

He seems to be stuck in a rut.

Well, Rethuglicans don't have any problems with wo-mandates if the current state of abortion rights are anything to go by.

If everybody got vaxxed, then COVID would diminish to the point we wouldn't need a mandate.  Ta Dah!  The solution is in your hands already!
Don't biatch about the price of water instead of hosing down your burning house, asshole.

What does that have to do with it?  Democrats can win the popular vote every damn time and a Republican still takes office.

CSPAN @cspan· 32m

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT): "I just want a vote on one amendment. I want the members of this body to go on record on whether they support funding in this bill President Biden's vaccine mandate. The American people have a right to know through our votes where we stand."


Take your stand.  You are pro-covid.
 
2021-12-02 1:54:21 PM  
Hasn't the mandate been functionally suspended for however long it takes to get to the Supreme Court for everyone except federal employees? So a shut down to prevent a policy that already isn't happening?

When I was younger, before I learned how to deal with negative emotions in a healthy way, I used to have a lot of problems with anger. I'd stuff everything bad down, and it would build and build and build until I exploded... And then, as quickly as it came, that anger would leave, and I'd just be left with shame.

That was my experience with anger for most of my life. Thankfully, I got my shiat together, and I haven't had anything remotely like that happen in years and years.

Unfortunately, my experience with anger is now just a constant, burning rage at these chucklefarks.

That's progress, right?

On the bright side, those on the fence about boosters are getting the shot because of Omicron.

Do it. I enjoyed the hell out of it in 2013. Still got paid after everything was all said and done too. Thanks for the free vacation.

Also:

(hahaha!)   They asked Pelosi what her response is

She dribbles and dunks some press corps head for a basket.

It wasn't even set to go into place until January IIRC.

A government shutdown?  During ski season?  Let me check the weather for next week to see if it would be a good time to have a paid-vacation...

Once again, the GQP is relying on Terrorist logic:

"Do this thing that will serve our interests ad harm people or we will do a thing that harms even more people, but it will be your fault because you made us do it!"

What fallout? You mean all the other times they've done it and not been reelected ...
 
2021-12-02 2:11:10 PM  
I don't GAF. Shut it ALL down. Utah can keep their tax money... every other state can, YOU Mr. Lee can now stay at home and get a real job, and we can dissolve the piece of shiat known as the United States Of America. How is that for burn it all down?

I do not think the American people can survive another lockdown.  The military check points, people forced to carry papers identifying them as essential workers, the sick disappearing into FEMA camps.

Precisely.

Maybe it's time the US broke off diplomatic ties with Utah.  Shut down the airport and block all federally funded roads at the border.  His constituents have all prepared for this with a year's supply of food for the siege, all three million of them, trying to take 350 million Americans hostage.

That is offensive.
His ancestry is Scottish.  I know because my ancestry was the group that ran them out of Scotland (and took large tracks of their land).

Annoying, because the castle WE built is called the "Lee Castle" just because they used to live there before we ate the slow ones.
