  1. There’s a reason why aliens haven’t visited Earth yet. They pick up fox news and are like, “Nope, no intelligent life here.”

    1. @Communication Failure7600 they my be backing the best candidate, which for a very long time has been the democrat. You’re just not getting it. Democrats are centrists they are not left. Back them all you want, they are not left. The US has gone so far down the rich boy rabbit hole that we no longer have a left. We have the crazy right, the far right, the right and the center. Democrats are the center.

    2. If the universe were a “dark forest”, intelligent life wouldn’t waste any resources destroying us because it’s obvious that we’d eventually get around to doing it ourselves.

    3. @Communication Failure7600 If aliens had a code of ethics wherein they didn’t dissect intelligent species in their experiments, only consumers of the CEC would need to worry.

  2. Rand Paul: “They can’t arrest all of us…”
    Is that a confession that he is encouraging people to break the law?

    1. does this mean nudist shouldn’t have to wear clothes in public anymore and should just ignore the “wear clothes” government mandate?

    2. I’m sure Rand Paul will use his influence to help any average republican citizen stay out of jail.

    1. @doodoohe the issue is: are you vaccinated? Yes? No problem. It is just about all that unvaccinated nuts…

    1. Almost makes one wonder, are Texas and Florida willing to sacrifice their own because of their immigrant population…

  3. “I love my mom but I don’t want her telling me what to do.” Well Rick, I love my stupid patriarchal country but I don’t want it telling me what to do with my uterus.

    1. @Queen Lady your choice is get vaccinated and live or refuse the vaccine and I guess pray you don’t get sick and die.

    2. @Queen Lady you do. You can stay unvaccinated and wear a mask and not attend a public school or work in a hospital. It’s the same with MMRV, hep A and B, Tdap anf Dtap.

    3. @Queen Lady Lets just say a bunch of people shoot guns into the sky at once. Everyone of those gun lickers decides they have a right.
      Along comes a common sense safety law banning shooting amo into the sky. Gun slingers cry my rights are being taken away! If your so afraid wear a bullet proof vest and helmet! You cant tell me what to do!

    4. @Queen Lady of course you have a choice. You have a choice between doing the right thing or doing the selfish thing. As long as you understand that not vaxing is selfish and dangerous and you’re good with that, then yeah, it’s your choice.

  4. Good point: Life precedes liberty and the pursuit of happiness comes in a close third. 2/3 of the USA knows this…

  5. Awesome and totally spot-on “Aliens” reference. (The only problem is, that final scene with Burke in the cocoon was actually cut from the original release.)

    1. Nero reference was crap , violin in from 16th century and Emperor Nero 1st century , died 30 year old , also he rebuild Rome after the fire .
      Also history of Nero era was written by few rich Romans , complaining about taxes , same thing that billionaires whine and cry about today .

    2. @Pete Lind Nero had a great passion for music and enjoyed playing the cithara – a stringed instrument like a lyre. You guys will lie to protect ANY tyrant.

    3. @Pete Lind After the fire, which burnt out a slum area, Nero built the enormous private pleasure palace he had long planned, but couldn’t build before because the land was unavailable.
      Scholars today don’t believe Nero arranged for the fire, because the older parts of Rome at the time were constructed of wooden structures with up to 7 stories. One of the leading causes of death in those
      neighborhoods at the time was building collapse. Cooking fires in such buildings often caused a whole block of the closely-packed homes to burn down.

  6. Rand Paul tells people “they can’t arrest us all”…no one is being arrested anywhere, good old-fashioned Republican fear tactics as usual.

    1. @Julian Crooks let’s hope so. But, the truth is they will just try again and come back. It’s a revolving door. They need to come in slowly , so that we can test all of them. There are just too many immigrants coming in all at once.

    2. @RockGoddess yes I do, and both were wrong on how it was handled. But, Obama did it first, and the initial cages were built under his administration.

  7. This is all of Drumpf and his administrations doing. Scale back on funding and not take any of this seriously. This is the price of electing someone like Drumpf. I wonder if Drumpf will catch the Delta variant, if he does I hope it whips his butt.

  8. In the Preamble to the Constitution: “promote the general welfare…” that means: GET. THE. FRICKING. VACCINE!!!!!!!

  9. He has been vacinated and is lying, as usual they are hypocrits, and my bible knowledge is limited, but I think Jesus had a distain for hypocrites…

    1. in the new testament, Acts:5, St. Peter murders a married couple for ‘the sin’ of ‘telling a lie.’ Peter says he did it as an agent of God. Resolution: both St. Peter and his God are complicit in a double murder. Now, consider: about a quarter of Americans (and all Trump voters) are Bible Thumpers……

  10. This is a Betty White in Lake Placid moment where she says “I’m rooting for the Alligator”…

  11. When a governor has obviously lost it, he or she should be IMMEDIATELY REMOVED a PUBLIC, IMMINENT THREAT AND DANGER???!!!
