Yep, almost as bad as the “F-Joe Biden” flags that I actually have to explain the meaning of to my young daughter since she reads them. 

Right, and then you have the ones that hide behind sayings that originated from a NASCAR broadcast. 

I always considered the "GoBrandon!" thing to be (1) childish, and (2) downright stupid... like so much of Trump's base.

Anybody who is watching the January 6 hearing and does not recognize that Trump and his toadies committed criminal, seditious acts completely misplaced their brains somewhere along the way.  Certainly what brains they may have had at birth are not in attendance and functioning now.

You guys still hung up on trump?? But totally fine with the dumpster fire we have now... nuff said

No, in case you don’t remember from previous exchanges, I am the one that says there is no D and there is no R. Y’all have fallen for the two party facade! Each sides head is so far up the top R or the top Ds back side. There is apparent lack of oxygen up there based on the dumb, hypocrisy spewed by BOTH sides. 

Seriously though, what is your answer for this, LGB flag flyer? Name another that has issued something like this.

On February 20, 2018, President Trump issued a memorandum instructing the Attorney General “to dedicate all available resources to… propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machineguns.”

You're only proving my point. You are still infatuated with an ex president. Which you don't see me pandering for.... but you of course assumed that because of my avatar. Let's face it our current situation is the worst we've ever seen. You can blame it on the last guy but it only makes you look like you support Brandon. Which is pathetic to say the least. Also slow down when hitting the save button during your rage responses back at people. You only need to click ONCE

Dude, this is the first time I’ve posted in quite some time. You cannot read or have no comprehension of what you do read. I think politics are a game and the people that buy into it are ignorant buffoons that spout whatever trending nonsense their TV tells them to. This becomes apparent when a simple question is asked but receives an answer that lacks any substance at all, much less actually answers the question. 
 

it’s almost as if Me Someone has made several alternate usernames…

I’m going to try really hard to hit the button only once. 

At least we agree on something. Politics suck. A two sided party system was doomed to fail in the BEGINNING. And trust I am not mesomeone.... probably the lowest most vial evil person on earth besides Brandon of course.
