WTF is wrong with .......

I work in a small clinic in Georgia that doesn't offer any benefits but pays well for the area. I work as a part timer and have my military retirement and other investments that are my major source of income.
One of my co-workers has a disabled husband (400lbs+) and adult sons that don't work. No health insurance. She is a hard right conservative.
She believes Trump is the savor (one step below her beloved American Jesus) and keeps telling me that Democrats are just a bunch of leaches that milk the government from her hard earned money via the taxes she pays.

I asked her if her economic status/ standing had changed while Trump was in office.
Her response: because of all the problems the Democrats gave him while in office there was no time to fix the broken system that is our government. I guess there was no change to her finances in the last 4 years.

She complains that illegal immigrants get about $100K when they cross the border to start a new life and food stamps, free health care (something she refuses at all cost because the government would in charge of her health), transportation anywhere they want to live, free housing and utilities, everything is free for them.

I don't argue, I just listen and when she is done, I leave the area and go back to my desk to work.

Just venting on this Monday morning.

My best friend is a Republican

Yes, my best friend and his wife (John and Christy) are Republicans...... She was the first person to get the vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine). My wife and I got them a few weeks after. John got them soon after us. Now we are all fully vaccinated.
We live in a politically conservative area in Alabama. 90% of our conservative neighbors are vaccinated already. My wife is medically trained, Christy is a manager at a Clinic, John woks for Walmart and I am retired.
I believe and trust in the science behind the research, development, production, and deployment of the vaccine. All of us had our unique doubts about the final produce. Of all my friends vaccinated only one had noticeable effects apart from the sore spot where it was injected; a little fever, chills, feeling like crap, all lasted about a day and then it went away.
I also heard a conversation between Christy and her son about the vaccine. She told him: "As soon as the vaccines are available for you, get it. I don't want you getting people sick because you were too lazy."

Just felt like sharing this little bit of news from the Great State of Alabama.
