Here's an Idea, Republicans; Infrastructure Week Ed.

If you think that the recently-passed infrastructure bill is a boondoggle and is full of unnecessary spending, then contact your state representatives and your governor to tell them to refuse any Federal dollars as a result of the bill.

I'll not hold my breath.

Because hypocrisy is a basic tenent of Republicans and conservatives, especially in the South. You clowns cavail and wail about the amount of money the Federal government spends, but you line up to the trough to take it all down. It's a well-known fact that most of the states that take the most Federal money per capita are run by Republicans.

Joe Manchin's home state is #2. You'll have to wait a long time to see the good small-government Republicans in West Virginia turn away Federal money.

About as long as a Covid denier whose SpO2 falls below 85% refuses oxygen and treatment, about as long as a libertarian turns away fire fighters away from his burning house (because he didn't pay for them), about as long as a fatcat beach house owner refuses Army CoE beach replenishment after a hurricane, about as long as Red states turn away disaster aid after the crap hits the fan there, about...., about....

Meanwhile,in socialist, heart of the free-market Singapore, medical care for the unvaccinated hold-outs is no longer free.

Yup. They won't take the vaccine because it was approved too quickly, but they'll be clamoring for Pfizer's new Covid treatment pill (or buy horsepaste from Agway).

Funny how you keep on that "horsepaste" thing...you do know it was designed for, and used by, humans long before livestock, right?,,,,and that it works to prevent covid, right?
Deny and deride all you want....you meme is false and you know it. Ferinstance, you derided the "South" for not doing masks and all that other folderol, yet now we have Califronica having TWICE the rate of covid that Florida and other southern states have....

All your derision of those who follow real science rather than the Fauci-Meme-of-the Day" doesn't change things, does it?

And tell me....do you approve of the bloated "Infrastructure bill"?

DL: buy horsepaste from Agway
Just the thing for horses' asses....

I wonder about home sapiens: we all, in our varying ways, use reason to dress up and justify what we want to do anyway.

And the world and Mother Nature, after long fruitless attempts to trim us, the dominant species on the planet, down to a sustainable number for the carrying capacity of the planet, have pulled out the big guns: contagion and climate change.

Can we adapt to the challenge? Isn't looking good.

Comrade Misfit said...

If you think the infrastructure bill is bloated, B, get your state/county/town to refuse the money.

That people were (and are) buying horsepaste from feed stores is a matter of fact.

B said...

Same active ingredients as in the prescription stuff, And the carrier is benign.

Comrade Misfit said...

So they are taking horsepaste from the feed store. Then what is your beef?

They’re taking animal meds for a non-prescribed use and you conceded that they’re doing that, but when I mention that, you develop a case of butthurt.

Curious, that.
