The GOP does not support parents because they offer thoughtless prayers to grieving parents while claiming they support parents rights.

I guess they have a right to grieve.

Are children supposed to fill in for immigrants?

American 'freedom' excludes LGBT Americans. And when it comes to guns, type in a search engine: 'American families with guns at Christmas' and the absolute insanity of America's gun cult reveals itself.

Edit - the school/church involved in the recent shooting was once involved in a scandal:

Because it’s a way to control women. It has nothing to to with helping babies.

Politicians who pose with children carrying AR-15s have internalized the belief that this type of performative “self-sufficient warrior” identity IS what appeals to their voters, who ARE the American people (at least a significant portion of Americans, who also entertain this view of themselves). They aim to present as strong individuals, banded together to protect home and hearth from horrifying hordes of invaders. And who are the invaders? LGBTQ folks and their allies, Black & brown people. Atheists. Transgendered people. And all the weak, bleeding heart leftists, who are ruining our country with their despicable, immoral, godless agenda.

Not to mention Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders rolling back child labor laws. Which of course will just be the start. These people really are despicable.

At last, a post that unifies GOP policies designed to keep people misinformed and to cow us all through the UNIVERSAL AVAILABILITY of arms.

Ginnie Thomas' Kraken has indeed been let loose, to prey upon children, folks shopping for groceries, worshipers of all stripes, dancers, teachers attempting to let kids discover what has actually happened in this country. This ball of confusion (and let's not omit the Biden policy of excluding immigrants, letting them suffer and, now, die horribly at the border), benefits weapons manufacturers, etc. and preys upon minority, transgender and gay communities.

Biden is constrained in his choices for immigration, with no increase in funding or fixes for the immigration system in place. That isn’t an excuse, it’s reality.

It’s happening for the same reason that voting rights, abortion, gun control, the judicial system, adding DC and Puerto Rico as states, etc etc still hasn’t happened, because Democrats are being forced to fix all these on their own due to the universal Republican no to all of these. And Democrats are just barely short on their own.

Sinema needs to be replaced and Manchin needs to be retained despite his seriously misplaced faith in keeping the filibuster and seemingly not understanding he is being used to keep the cudgel going. Because he is likely to be the only possible Democratic Senator to be elected in West Virginia at this point. And he at least will help Democrats to hold that majority.

We need both a Democratic majority in the Senate and majority of votes to say yes, whether it’s the Senators themselves or the Senators plus the Vice President. Then we can abolish the filibuster, whether it’s issue by issue or in its entirety.

That 60 vote margin in the Senate being required for all issues except the few that have already been abolished, like judges, and reconciliation bills, is seriously harming the United States.
