Rather have it be “Weber Grill Roasts DeSantis”.

My kids didn’t sign up to be members of Seal Team Six.

Kept waiting for the guy providing the sign language to just give up and start making obscene gestures.

In this metaphor, I understand that your kids are the people inside the compound.

Ron Disastrous has another Ron Burgundy moment, minus the humor.

Post Labor Day is going to be a rough time for DeSantis.

DeSADIST wants children and their relatives especially the disabled, week, elderly and ill to be sacrificed on the altar of his real God, Ayn Rand.

I can remember the last speech that Hubert Humphrey gave where he said that the great moral test of a society is how it treats those in the dawn of light–the children, those in the twilight of light–the elderly and those who through no fault of their own are trapped in the shadows of light–the sick, destitute, disabled, hopeless and those thrown away by the inhumanity of unrestrained market forces.

Ever since Pruneface Reagan came to power, America has failed Humphrey’s test.

So…people that will survive if they’re lucky, and if they go to get a sandwich at the wrong moment well…thems the breaks?

While I like the roasting, modern Republicanism relies on the advertising principle that any attention is good attention, so they throw firebombs and just ride the wave of attention… every day…

Yes, brave Sir Richard, just like the Navy Seals.

What a complete, total lack of any hint of a sliver of leadership from anyone…in the gop.

He would be correct, to be honest, had the Seals hidden behind a whole lot of school children and teachers serving as human shields in invading the Bin-Ladin compound. Must be a proud time for Floridians.You
chose an idiot to lead you into battle. Best of luck.

pretty sure the SEAL team was a well trained prepared for nearly everything they could think of group of volunteers… where’d FL hold their back to school K-12 training program?:skull:

Seal Team Six is not being dispatched to kill everyone in the compound, but it’s a matter of supreme indifference when any of them get a bullet to the forehead.

Even there he fails, beccause the bin laden raid was a one-off. Going to school every day and not catching covid-19 and dieing is 200 days a year.

Remember folks that the Republican Cult Of The Fetus will endlessly yell about the rights of Freddy and Freida Fetus but once they’re born they don’t give a damn what happens to Baby Freddy or Baby Freida. If Freddy or Freida die because they don’t get the health care they need, or if they starve to death, are given an inferior education, beaten by bullies, molested by priests and die—well the “Pro Life” Party just shrugs and says “Tough Luck”!

And the SEALS were heavily armed. And had explosives. And rockets. And bombs.

The students?

Since when did Republicans give a shit about public education, anyway? They’ve spent 40 years trying to dismantle it because the kids’ll just larn eevil stuff like Eevolution, anyway. And what’s wrong with kids remaining at home under the watchful eye of their parents in any case? Don’t they prefer home schooling because it reinforces God-like parental authority?

Nope, Republicans turn on a dime, just like Communist Party members when the Hitler-Stalin Pact was announced. Trump needs kids in school to convey a fake atmosphere of “normalcy” leading up to the election, and to remove any excuse by parents that they can’t go back to work (and also risk contracting COVID).

As that asshole sheriff in Florida illustrated, Republicans are simply rabid dogs that have to be put down for the sake of public safety. And I’m sure it does the dog no good to be frothing at the mouth: best put it cleanly out of its misery.
