2. Its time for the people of Kentucky to vote this piece of shit out of office

Stop voting against your own interest!!! Moscow Mitch has made himself rich while the people of Kentucky are getting what? There are pockets of Kentucky with extreme poverty and Trump has the nerve to talk about communities of color and they happily vote for McConnell and Trump while their lives are not improving?

5. Folks up in Wyoming...

... gonna be having this very same battle real soon, once they realise those two gigantic - and recently shuttered - mines in Campbell County mean no more healthcare coverage, no more black lung fund, no more retirement funds, etc.

Their Republican reps presided over all of this, and no doubt got rich from it too, while telling their constituents "Democrats wanna take your jobs away."

6. Now they know what

being Cheney-ed feels like. Sad is it not. Medical Services for Health Related upper Respiratory issues is the largest growing industry in Wyoming as per our Daughter who was recruited to open a in home Health Aides Services Office in the Gillette area. Like she said,don't want to get trapped in a Know Where State that would not have a solid Funding Formula in or Source in place to sustain these services.

7. This is a dirty shame

But my parents are from KY, I have a lot of relatives there (my grandpa was a coal miner). The area that I know is definitely MAGA country, the kind I can't understand-- relatives who live in trailers and live off government assistance.... and they're tRump supporters.
Not everyone in KY deserves this horrible man, but you get what you pay for. Apologies to my fellow dems who live there.
