The Republican Party Takes Flight

Guys, the Republicans are revolting! [“I’ll say, they stink on ice!” — Mel Brooks]

Nearly 40 maskless House Republican lawmakers walked across the Capitol and onto the Senate floor in protest of the Capitol physician’s decision to reinstate a mask mandate in the lower chamber but not in the upper chamber.

Republicans complained that the policy, backed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-Calif.) and other Democrats, is inconsistent, infringes on personal liberty, and is based on politics, not science.

But leave it to a Republican representative to cheat on his taxes as his own, personal, mask revolt:

(CNN)Rep. Andrew Clyde, the Georgia Republican who compared scenes from January 6 to a “tourist visit,” has found a way to evade the House’s mask fines, according to one of his GOP colleagues…

Normally fines are taken out of a member’s congressional salary, but Massie says Clyde, who owns a firearms business, “went to payroll and had his federal withholding raised to $11,284 a month. So he only gets $1 of pay.”

The maneuver is designed to prevent the House from garnishing his wages.

All of this performance art and waste of time just to avoid a few inches of cloth over their pie holes.

    For $11K per month, I’d show up every day in scuba gear if that was the dress code.

    If they wear masks no one can see their noses.
    In their world brown-noses are something to brag about.

    Well, if were talking about the behavior of four year olds, I’m going to wear a hat and vest made out of lima beans, forever, because I hate lima beans, and I have science on my side too as well, so there: “A drawback to these gaudy varieties is that they’re more poisonous than the average bean. Lima beans contain cyanogenic glycosides, sugar-bound compounds that are harmless until cellular disruption—brought about by chewing—releases an enzyme that chops the molecule in two, generating deadly hydrogen cyanide.”

    I’ll let Fluffy eat them under the kitchen table while we’re eating and no one will ever know, either.
    The consitutions say four year olds have freedoms from having to eat lima beans just like the mask freedoms of mommy and daddys says.

    I stand by my consitutions rights!

    Editors note: Maybe a bit too much paraphrasing going on, above. Butt who can tell with four year olds.

    Take the $1 and send him a monthly invoice for the balance. If he doesn’t pay, turn him in to a credit agency.
