Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, March 12, 2021

"We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America, not for what? China, Russia, Middle East, Guam, whatever, wherever," [Rep. Marjorie Taylor] Greene said during the recent Conservative Political Action Conference 2021 in Florida.

Dear Rep @mtgreenee: Guam is a US territory, not a foreign country. I served on active duty at Andersen AFB, the only base in the Western Pacific that can permanently service US bombers.

Oh, and Guam Representative San Nicolas votes in House Committees, something you cannot do.

I have yet to find out whether it is purposely malicious or plain ignorance why congressmembers on both sides make poor-quality "hot military takes," while they have plenty peers who were once members of the DoD at various leadership levels who they can lean on to gain insight into, and be educated about, various aspects of the military + affiliated agencies.

To her it is a foreign country. Ignorance is required these days to be an R.

She thinks she is being so smart and clever, but this reminds me of Herman Cain's "Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan."

On the issue of Guam, I did not think that a Congressperson would ever match the stupidity of the representative who in all seriousness worried whether the island might capsize if there were too many people there. But Ms. Taylor Greene seems to have done it.

Come on now, to the GQP, anything outside the lower 48 and Alaska (because it's red) is not part of 'Merca. That's how some of these racist, knuckle-dragging, Dotard-supporting morons can continue to hold onto the "Obama wasn't born in 'Merca" BS.

I posted this on the QAnon Veronica thread, but it belongs here with QAnon Betty too.

The worst thing Dotard did to American politics was that he showed the GQP that they could tell the biggest, provably false, bald-faced lies which Reichwing media won't correct, and their racist, proudly low-information, anti-education base will believe every word and run to social media to support and defend them. This is the outcome of the Drumpf Regime's "alternative facts" four-year war on knowledge and expertise. For this Kellyanne Conjob, Huckabee-Slanders, and mini-Goebles Mcaninny need to forever be shamed EVERYWHERE they go, and should NEVER be allowed to rehabilitate their reputations. When you can't agree on a set of facts, you can't have a reasonable debate about anything. This could be what brings on the downfall of the American experiment.

It is a moral obligation that congressmen/women know the names of all 50 states and the territories and protectorates.

I still remember when Republicans on Fox tried to convince people that HI was "basically a foreign country" because they wanted to hurt Obama.

HI's senators wrote an open letter addressing such ignorance.

I thought Guam tipped over and sank because of the number of US Marines on the island.

Did that not happen?

A large number of U.S. Marines on a small remote island goes a long way towards explaining how someone might think it's a foreign country.

By law EVERY candidate who runs for any political office needs to first be subject to a full mental health evaluation by an independent board of clinical psychologists.

I'm so tired of morons and idiots in leadership roles.

The lunatic fringe.

We know you are out there.

You're not even hiding, and you hold your meetings
I can hear you coming
I know what you're after
We're wise to you this time (wise to you this time)
We won't let you kill the laughter
Womp! Womp! Womp!

Lunatic fringe
In the twilight's last gleaming
This is open season
But you won't get too far
'Cause you got to blame someone
For your own confusion
We're on guard this time (on guard this time)
Against your Final Solution

#20 clinical psychologists.

The reason people become one of those is because they study why they are so messed up and when the think they found the answer they profess to us.

No we don't need them, people just need to wake up and think of actual consequences before they jump on the crazy train.

Trump for example "oh it's all so good" well yeah it is until the bubble bursts.
