I might be wrong but I think McConnell is not long for the world. Picture.




I don't know when this picture was taken but those blue lips sure look like low O2 levels in his blood.
No wonder he is trying so hard to change the law in KY so the Governor can't pick somebody to fill
a vacancy when a US Senator leaves office.

The tip off that he is terminal is that he is arranging for his successor in KY as we speak.

Moscow Mitch doesn't seem like a purple lipstick kinda guy.

The strange thing is, there's a theatrical product designed to neutralize men's lips so they DON'T look like they're wearing lipstick when they're on stage. I wonder why they don't use it on him.

And his damage will not end, the Kentucky state legislature stripped the Dem governor there of his right to name McConnell's replacement. So McConnell gets to name his replacement. Sickening.

Is, he either believes, or wants people to believe, that we operate under the same motivations he does. He portrays Dems as wanting to be elected for power and money like he and his ilk. When we know we earnestly love the world, its people, and its wildlife. They don't. They want to kill, control, or harvest for their death cult pleasure.

to claim that the economic recovery is from opening up, not from vaccines and stimulus checks. But the risk is they will see rising COVID numbers from their unvaccinated unmasked voters in those states and maybe spread the new variants that aren't defeated by the vaccines.

Fri Mar 12, 2021, 04:41 PM
Mar 2021

It's underdiagnosed but affects between 30% and 80% of polio survivors. Symptoms sometimes include breathing problems, due to weakened breathing muscles and/or motor neurons to those muscles.

It's a very slow, progressive disease. Reading about it actually made me feel sorry for him, that's how bad it is.
