Following confirmation to Supreme Court, Barrett takes 1st oath at White House
Amy Coney Barrett will replace the late liberal icon, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
Don’t want to wear a mask, get drunk at home, ugh. As a kid living by the beach, I remember when signs started to appear, saying No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service. It was outrageous. But nobody fought over it; we just put on our shirts & shoes. The west coast is on fire, the ice caps are melting but, this is what people wanna fight about?
Before scolding people for not wearing masks, consider that refusing to wear a mask is probably already a good indicator that a person is an asshole, so as an asshole, is unlikely to respond well to being scolded. These people are violent and disturbed. Hey guys, I need some money. Who wants to bet me this was a Tr*mp supporter?
