Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Slim Pickens edition

Not much going on over at Freeperville over the last week (other than delight over the Smollett verdicts), so we’re going to have to dip into some older posts. Buckle up!

We’ll start with – Cave In!

Crisis averted as conservatives cave

NO SHUTDOWN — Congress avoided a government shutdown after Senate conservatives dropped their demands to nix President JOE BIDEN’s vaccine mandates in the funding bill — and Senate Majority Leader CHUCK SCHUMER gave them a way out.

All 100 senators agreed late Thursday night to quickly proceed to a bill funding the government through Feb. 18. The breakthrough came after Schumer gave Republicans a vote (with a simple majority threshold) to defund federal vaccination mandates. He did so only because there were two Republicans absent, meaning that even if Sen. JOE MANCHIN (D-W.Va.) sided with Republicans, the amendment would be defeated. (And fail it did, 48-50.)

Conservatives will argue they got something out of this drama: a vote on their issue. In reality, it was a face-saving measure. The far-right started out demanding that Congress effectively scuttle the mandates, then reduced their ask to a mere vote they knew would fail, ensuring smooth passage of a continuing resolution a full 30 hours before the shutdown deadline.

*************************************************************

It’s a shame we couldn’t find ONE senator to gum up the works and object.I only hope they got something more than a DOOMED to fail amendment.

This can’t possibly continue.

“cave”

Hidden in the word “Conservatives” are the words “Vote cavers in”.

Charges Weighed for Michigan Shooting Suspect’s Parents Newsmax ^ | December 2, 2021 Posted on 12/2/2021, 7:35:16 PM by Navy Patriot

A prosecutor on Thursday repeated her criticism of the parents of a boy who is accused of killing four students at a Michigan school, saying their actions went “far beyond negligence” and that a charging decision would come by Friday.

“The parents were the only individuals in the position to know the access to weapons,” Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald said. The gun “seems to have been just freely available to that individual.”

Ethan Crumbley, 15, has been charged as an adult with two dozen crimes, including murder, attempted murder and terrorism, for a shooting Tuesday at Oxford High School in Oakland County, roughly 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Detroit.

Why would you say BS before doing a simple google search? Get a grip.

Parents may be liable for the negligent or criminal acts of their children, beginning when children are eight to ten and ending at the age of majority. This means parents can be subject to lawsuits or criminal sanctions if their children commit crimes or cause injuries or property damage to a third party.

Anyone who thinks they can buy their kids guns and not be liable for their actions are too stupid to either own guns or have kids, IMHO.

Bad sig line for this thread, methinks.
And now – the post of the thread!

How do you know the kids knew right from wrong? Some people don’t, look at Fauci.  I think the word is psychopath.

Because saving millions of lives is exactly like killing five people with your dad’s new handgun.

    “Whether anyone is sick of him [Hannity] or not, the idea that some political hacks on Capitol Hill can get access to the private text messages of citizens and read them out loud for the world to hear should chill the blood of any American.
