Way to feed the stereotype that “Liberals have no sense of humor”

on school choice, you said it’s wrong for taxpayers to subsidize sending other kids to private schools. Please explain how the student loan forgiveness, which you support, isn’t the same thing?

Can’t wait.

yes we are cry babies. liberals never ever protest when they don’t get their way.

simple jim because their not .. but you do love suggesting that everything the same

yes we are cry babies. liberals never ever protest when they don’t get their way.
sadly jim you don't understand the difference between a protest .

And Republicans being but hurt and filling a lawsuit just because Biden kept his campaign promise

Hold on...you're saying that when taxpayers pay off student loan debt, that' snot subsidizing private education for others? So if a kid gets $20,000 wiped off his student loan to Yale, and we have to pay for that, how is that not using taxpayer money to subsidize others getting a private education?

You can't just say "it's not the same". Please be specific.

They're not "the same" but for sure they are both ideas where we use taxpayer money to subsidize others going to private school. Unless the student loan forgiveness bill specifies that it has to be a loan for a public college.

OK, so it's OK when liberals shoot cops and burn buildings because they don't get what they want, but when Republicans seek resolution in the courts, that's being a crybaby. Got it, thanks for clarifying.

sure, elections have consequences, I believe that. But if there's some question as to the legality of what Biden did, isn't a suit the way to clear that up?

You say republicans are authoritarians. But Biden wants to spend $300,000,000,000 unilaterally, without getting approval from congress? Maybe he has that authority, maybe he doesn't. Let's see.

When can you specify how student loan forgiveness is not an example of using taxpayer funds to subsidize someone else going to a private school?

Spending money isn't always authoritarian. One man deciding to spend $300,000,000,000 without asking Congress?

"rump and those who support his are authoritarian minded stop being afraid and admit it "

How is it authoritarian to want a smaller federal government and more individual liberty, than what democrats propose?

See, this is how politicized and polarized everything is being made out to be...To me, it sounds sophomoric and petty. It should be recognized by everyone that this is how criminals vote... not one political party or another... Criminals.

Pleas explain why you didn't just engage in whatabout-ism?

But as always, it's OK when YOU do it.

In my view, mild humor should not possibly be confused with fanning the flames of hate which exists across the American landscape. Your comment is not part of the solution... whether or not it gives you your giggles.

I admit, a part of me did too. I am just so sick of the political bickering... And Scott, I do respect your being able to tell me GFY.... TDF knows me, and understands from where I come.
