If anything though, this just shows why I ******* hate politics.

A good portion of members on both sides don’t actually care about issues in this country - they just like pretending they do as a way to bring in clout attention knowing they’ll be showered with praise. It’s why I’m a free thinker with this stuff.

Part of the problem with government, it was never meant to be this big, sprawling bloated entity it is now.
Back in colonial times, the government was supposed to have limited powers, and major decisions were to be made on a state or local level.
And being a politician was not a lifelong career. Whether you were a president, governor or mayor, you served one or two terms, then you went back to your farm, business, or blacksmith shop.
Some government agencies, like the IRS, are so unproductive and waste so much to justify their bloated budgets. If they were a private company, they’d be bankrupt from losing so much money.

Today ten American soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing in Kabul. No count of how many Afghans died.
Everyone around Biden told him this withdrawal was a bad idea. Yet he doubled down and insisted the Taliban would be no trouble.
I’m dying to hear Jen Psaki walk this back.

But, hey, look, a meme

God bless those troops and their families

All gave some, some gave all

It should be pointed out that the suicide bombings were carried out by ISIS, not the Taliban. The Taliban and ISIS do not get along

Wouldn’t it be nice to see whenever these “Reps wail against Biden” posts come up, there would be ONE name attached to it? Just to lend a shred of credibility? But some things are too much to hope for
No, Biden owns this one. His original thought was to have all troops out by the anniversary of 9/11. But he went about it in such a haphazard way, thousands of Americans are still stranded there, and with each passing day their fate looks more bleak.

One thing Biden can do. He still has fifty thousand troops stationed in Germany. They could be deployed to help the stranded.

If there are still any Americans or allies still in Afghanistan after August 31, what do you think will happen?

Yet you never seem to criticize anything right-leaning Biden does like still keeping kids in cages anyway?
