"fark you @tedcruz you care about a fetus but you will let our children get slaughtered. Just get your ass to Cancun. You are useless." Gallego added in a second tweet, "Just to be clear fark you @tedcruz you farking baby killer. Finally, he responded to GOP Rep. Darrell Issa's offer of "thoughts and prayers" with "fark your prayers. They haven't worked for the last 20 mass shootings how about passing laws that will stop these killings."

I love this guy.

The going rate for thoughts and prayers is pennies on the dollar. They seem to throw more out, the more donations they get from the gun lobby.

Sadly, it pays out.

There are 273 Democrats in Congress. Why aren't we hearing this from more of them?

We can't even get rid of Donald Trump: a traitor and wannabe dictator. Do you really think guns are going anywhere?

Hint: they're not. They're too ingrained into society, culture, life, and rural America.

"I would like to express my condolences to all of the relatives and family members of the children who were killed in an awful shooting in Texas," Zelensky said


How farked is it that the leader of a war torn nation facing genocide has to offer sympathy to our shiathole of a nation.

Ted Cruz is loathsome.  He politicizes a national tragedy by whining that it will be politicized.  BUt he does that before anyone has said anything.  He is absolutely repugnant.  Texas needs better, but too many of us have bought into GOP lies and hatred.

Ted Cruz is a psychopath and Governor Abbott is too.

2022 is the litmus test. If the Republicans retake the house get out. Get out while you can.

How do you know they aren't, Eeyore!

More seriously, it's because they are a bunch of feckless cowards that are terrified of upsetting their opposition.   If there is one thing we can be sure of as an outcome of this particular pile of dead kids is that not one farkin' thing is going to change as a result.

Nuthin is gonna happen.  Again.

Weird.

I think about my first car.
An extremely light, air bagless crumple car, which I knew that
in the event of a head on collision, the steering column would go through my chest.

Then I thought about the times before safety glass, when being ejected through
the windshield was an even greater adventure or the old films with the crash dummy's
being tossed around while the vehicle beer cans.

And then I think about Nader, and legislation, and some numbers going down.
/and as we lurch aimlessly from atrocity to atrocity, and why movies about multiverses are all the rage now.

It's hard to take American politicians seriously when they allow this.

When people showed up at SCOTUS judges' houses in peaceful protest, they had a bill sail through Congress in 24 hours. When they want to do something, they do it. There's a reason they don't do anything on gun control or FOX News or insurrectionists in Congress. They simply don't want to do anything about it and the rest of us just have to deal with it somehow.

To be fair, you are pretty damn safe if you use seatbelts. It's the idiots that don't and speed that drive the numbers up astronomically.

Been in a few.

Was even driving once.

Yep speed and drifting a tyre into a freshly dug culvert.

Bumps and scratches. Had my belt on.

1980 Jimmy.

Citizens United wins another round. Cruz gets another donation from gun manufacturers and you get another day off to attend your child's funeral.

And that's why he does it. Acting like you care without working to fix the problem is great for fundraising.

And yes, I know it seems like Ruben is one of the good people in Congress, I just have no faith in any of them that they give even the tiniest shiat about any of this except that they can make a buck off it.

Passing universal healthcare so that mental health issues are handled efficiently and with care?

So do nothing, and let the fascists sail to victory.

Great plan.

So in order to even be *working* to fix the problem, Gallego would need to do something no one in American government has ever done and which he cannot possibly do himself. Seems reasonable.

But only if you still have some PTO credit, otherwise it's unpaid leave and a tick on your record.
