Just be glad that she's too old for Gaetz to be sexually attracted to her, so it's unlikely that this will result in additional offspring.

The real problem with these and other like-minded fools remaining in Congress is that they feed right into the whole anti-government mindset of a lot of the GOP side of the House, in that they aren't acting as though actual representative government --never mind any respect for interactions of executive-legislative-judicial branches-- is even a thing at the Federal level.

Their actual organizing principle is from the state level, and is left over from the Tea Party: that federal government is an errant and socialist circus and should therefore be defunded to make it completely ineffective, and then disbanded because it has become completely ineffective. That's the grassroots pitch. Above that, there are the RNC and its state committees saying "yeah whatever, if that pitch sells and gets Republicans re-elected, we're all for it."

And along then came Trump to provide a flashy circus master.

Now the GOP is having trouble extricating itself from a personality-oriented "platform" thanks to not having had a coherent platform past Trump's idea that he alone could fix what's wrong with the USA. That's not policy at this point, or even a sales pitch, it's just a floor under a cult, with some members jockeying to see if they can get a piece of whatever value the thing has now that Trump is issuing fake-fiats from Mar a Lago FL or Bedminster NJ instead of executive orders from the White House in DC.

The likes of Gaetz and Greene may possibly view themselves as the advance party for a genuinely more populist GOP (although I think those two are both just media whores by now, regardless of their original, respective intentions) but they are not representative of the actual spectrum of conservative or traditional Republican-leaning voters in the USA.

Still, most reliably conservative voters who don't favor this crew of self-proclaimed Trump zealots are not out on social media making that clear. They are just on about their business, trying to get through the long tail of the pandemic's effect on everything and everyone.

So it's hard for anyone to give a reliable estimate of how much House critters like Gaetz and Greene really matter. And it's too bad the media seem to feel compelled to give them oxygen. To the extent they persist in doing that, they also give the otherwise waning Trump engine fuel and oxygen as well.

It’s like they use the caricature that is Ron Swanson, as training material.

wife and I both got bad headaches in the middle of the night got back to sleep for awhile but it would not let up. She had too be sitting or standing and I had to lay down to keep it from getting worse. We were out of Tylenol I threw up a couple of times but thats more when I get the occasional headache it makes me queasy. daughter brought us some but it still took a hour or so to lose the headaches. still feel like we were put through the ringer. We were going to go on a long bike ride this morning as my wife is finally off on Saturday.
Erm... I mean I know I’m the worst offender for this but... did you post in the wrong thread by chance?

MTG COT, stupid shit preaching to her losers, trying to project today’s COT onto the Democrats as Nazis. It’s got to be the America Stupid rally. :unsure: 😬

Maybe behind a pay wall, use reader mode to see:

“You know, Nazis were the National Socialist Party. Just like the Democrats are now a national socialist party.”
— Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), speaking at an “America First” rally, May 27

Those who apparently do not know history are doomed to make basic mistakes.
It seems so simple. The official name of the Adolf Hitler’s political party — the Nazis — had the word “socialist” in it. Ergo, it must have been a socialist party. And that means that Democrats, some of whom call themselves socialists, must be Nazis. Or something like that.
Greene is not the first Republican lawmaker to make this facile observation. So here’s a quick history lesson. (The video above also provides a useful primer on socialism.)

The Facts​

The full name of Hitler’s party was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei. In English, that translates to National Socialist German Workers’ Party. But it was not a socialist party; it was a right-wing, ultranationalist party dedicated to racial purity, territorial expansion and anti-Semitism — and total political control.

She didn't invent that claim. It has been a right wing claim for at least the past several years.

I still say this is the perfect opportunity to point out to her the full name of the KKK. You know, the part starting with “The Christian Knights.” Will her head explode?

It’s a clam based on being uneducated on a topic, and saying it because it servers her political agenda and the base she preaches to laps up Marjorie’s Koolaid, it burns a little going down before transcending into Right Wing Nirvana.

She’s too much of a two faced liar, manipulator, hypocrite, and Donny apprentice to let any fact dissuade her holey crusade because she has STUPID on her side, stupid who joyfully gulps Marjorie’s Tea.

Gaetz and Greene are the most virulent part of the infection, but they are only a few degrees worse than the central corruption. Look at The GOP who can’t bring themselves to vote for an independent commission because they know it (truth) will harm the GOP as a going political concern.

Until these guys get off the Trump Train and home grown idiots, like 70m in the last election, continue to support them, democracy in America is an endangered species. The GOP have decided democracy is bad for them along with substantial number of the idiots are saying fuck democracy If I can’t have my way. 😥

"Christian" means whatever they want it to mean. There are about 1.2 Billion sects of Christianity, many of them literally sharing pews with each other. (Bearing in mind that this does not make Christianity notably different from any other random belief set.)

The most nuanced and balanced view on this that you are likely to see, I think


TLDR?

Summary
Despite continuing certain Weimar-era social welfare programs, the Nazis proceeded to restrict their availability to “racially worthy” (non-Jewish) beneficiaries. In terms of labor, worker strikes were outlawed. Trade unions were replaced by the party-controlled German Labor Front, primarily tasked with increasing productivity, not protecting workers. In lieu of the socialist ideal of an egalitarian, worker-run state, the National Socialists erected a party-run police state whose governing structure was anti-democratic, rigidly hierarchical, and militaristic in nature. As to the redistribution of wealth, the socialist ideal “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” was rejected in favor of a credo more on the order of “Take everything that belongs to non-Aryans and keep it for the master race.”

The modern GOP is only a few steps away from Hitler's party, in my opinion, but they are, in general, less competent and more bat-shit crazy.

It keeps on impressing me how uneducated MTG is and I'm not talking about formal education, though I'd expect such glaring gaps in knowledge be covered by getting through college or even high school.

She does not strike me as the kind of person that would absorb any knowledge and has clearly attended the "my uncle told me" high school before graduating from the "the guy at the bar said" university.
