I'm kind of feeling like Gabby Gifford might run as a Libertarian.
I do think she will leave the Democrat party, and if the right wingers (never mind Trump) are any indication, she really doesn't have a future as a Republican.

Kind of a Bill Ayers approach to promoting one’s agenda.

I don't know the whole tone or context of the conversations, but it sounds like the manager wasn't told about your conditions, and gave you a boiler-plate policy response.
He then offered to work with you, and frankly it sounds like you overreacted kind of like how an asshole would.

... bleeting "fake news" every time one of those reports came out, but during Trump's tenure, how many stories were made out of leaks saying that when it came to briefings, meetings and the like, he had the attention span of a small child and regularly needed basic things explained to him?
I'd would guess most, if not all, those stories WERE "fake news".
There are other examples of named sources disputing those claims on record. But the most glaring was James Comey, under oath, describing Trump as "above average intelligence". That just doesn't square with all the unverifiable, unnamed sources of the reports you describe.

He’s an absolute clown.
Well, right now his people are scrambling to come up with a [guessing] unverifiable claim that he actually HAS been to the border once in his 50 year political career.
If true, that's absolutely astounding.
I'll just say it again, all the POTUS does is give speeches and rubber stamp stuff. Nothing about what Biden is doing and how he's doing it is different from his predecessors. Biden just isn't maintaining the fascade, and so everyone is finally seeing behind the curtain.
I guess the sun was in their eyes when they utilized their "over the horizon" capability.
Or maybe the "K" in Isis-K stands for kindergarten.

I’m eagerly awaiting the BLM backlash on vaccine mandates. That said, the incident in NY was all on the visitors. Shocking, I know.
I think the last several years have taught us these organizations (not the followers/movement) rarely go after Dems....because these organizations actually aren't real activists, but Democrat PAC's masquerading as legal 501c's.
All I can say is, lucky for Australia that very few people commit the crime of "maskless while black".
I noticed the paper avoided assuming the perp's gender....

Well, abuses and partisanship might be coming to a head...
Dems want to use reconciliation to pass $3.5T+ in handouts, PLUS amnesty....so Repubs are threatening to block raising the debt ceiling as their only negotiating leverage....UNLESS Manchin votes to blow-up the filibuster.
This is an absolute shit show. There may be some real pain this time, because it seems like the side that blinks will lose power in 2022 [and both sides know it].

posted by iclfan2I'm just glad we got rid of that fascist Trump. Or was he an autocrat? It's hard to keep track.
I’m old enough to remember when the border crisis mattered. Lol at Biden’s admin trying to hide it.

Samsung devices are nice but I hate their version of Android. Bloated af. My pure android Motorola phone was still my favorite of all time.
I paid $100 to root my Galaxy after years of it not being possible....then screwed it up by manually upgrading my software. For a while there, it was perfect running a vanilla rom.
I'd maybe get a Pixel if they made it in mini size.
Probably still be using my og Droid Turbo (that thing was a tank!) but the place that swapped the battery for me screwed up the wireless charging and the aftermarket batteries all suck.

Not much has changed over the last couple of thousand years. We are still throwing stones at the lepers.
But it's the stone thrower that you choose to cheer for that makes all the difference...

Was there any reasons listed as to why? I didn’t get to see any of this.
I think the gist of it was that there's no data showing that the vaccines are starting to fail to prevent serious illness/death.
In other words, breakthru infections on their own aren't enough to justify a booster.
New rumor Samsung will have an S22 mini smaller than the IPhone (but it's unclear which version of IPhone they mean).
Although, it's supposedly their smallest [flagship] phone ever. "Flagship" might be key, because the smaller s10e I have isn't technically a flagship.
But if it comes in the range of the 13 mini, I might be interested. Except I do miss root, because there are more and more features that just don't work the way I'd like and need some tweaking.
FDA votes 16-2 against Pfizer booster.

So Vietnam - which apparently had been praised for its handling of the pandemic - is getting ravaged by Delta despite severe lockdowns and restrictions.
Also, can we maybe take a moment to observe another massive fail of "globalism", given that 2/3 of the world has virtually no access to vaccines STILL?
