Joe Biden wants to FIRE the very same working-class Americans who kept our country running during a pandemic because they REFUSE to give up their personal medical freedom and take a vaccine. What an absolutely EMBARASSING, BACKWARDS policy. 9:46 AM · Oct 30, 2021
Some of the responses:
Apparently, the conservative majority SCOTUS supports vaccine mandates.
Missouri is an at-will employment state, Jason. Why do you hate the free market at work?
They can get tested, that’s a choice.
Are there a lot of these people that you and the other seditionists don’t want to raise the minimum wage for so that they can work hard and make life better for themselves and their families. These people?
Dude. Killing your base to own the libs is some crazy ass “thinking” but it’s so YOU. [….]
Your an embarrassing backwards politician. #gopdeathcult
Article VI, United State Constitution
….This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding….

The federal government has no authority to issue COVID-19 vaccine mandates. 2:20 PM · Oct 28, 2021
Some of the responses:
Actually Constitutional law has held that they do.
Right now Sullivan County Mo leads the state in per capita cases. They are also well under 50% even receiving a single dose.
Are you a Constitutional legal expert?
No, he’s in IT Security
And that’s a lie. Besides Washington’s mandate for small pox, there was one during the 1918 flu pandemic, and again in 1921. The SCOTUS ruled on this topic twice already and said the Feds have the right to enforce mandates for public health.
You didnt even know what a computer was like a week ago.
Hello? Hello? Is this thing on? ctrl U
You know that’s not true, right?
Look I can’t come on your social media every single day and say “Supremacy Clause”. You need to start rereading the other times I’ve said it or something.
Looks like you know Constitution like you know IT. The failing grades continue, Governor.
You idiot, the government already mandates lots of vaccines for schools, government officials and military members. This is a PUBLIC health emergency. You Republicans are a death cult.
The only thing exceeding your ignorance and stupidity is your willingness to share it
Kyle Garner @KyleGarnerMO
Maybe Parson, instead of setting more of our money on fire, would like to just send me a check to Google basic shit any competent adult should know. He loves paying consultants, and I’m sure I’m cheaper than the lawyers he’ll pay to embarrass Missouri with this new bullshit. 4:55 PM · Oct 28, 2021
We stand at a critical juncture of the history of the United States of America, a distinct division of paths, and steep precipice of danger. The choices and decisions we soon make as a nation will determine which path we go down and whether we fall to our collective destruction or maintain the integrity and strength of our Union.
435 men and women are the voices of the people who comprise this great land. Each congressional district, represented by a fellow citizen of their state, duly elected to be a voice in Washington D.C. for the people. Each district is due the strongest voice they can elect who represents their will and their beliefs.
I am that strongest voice for the 4th Congressional District of the State of Missouri.
My voice has informed, influenced, and inspired millions of people during my tenure as a television news anchor. My voice has been on live TV for more than 23,000 hours. My voice has helped raise millions of dollars for charities both locally and nationally. My voice has served boards, foundations, churches, civic organizations, families, and strangers.
My voice has been just that, “My” voice. Now I want to be YOUR voice, representing your values and your beliefs, I want to represent YOU as the next Congressman for the 4th District of Missouri.
“We stand at a critical juncture of the history of the United States of America, a distinct division of paths, and steep precipice of danger…”
There was a mob in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021 which breached the Capitol and smeared feces on the walls, among other acts of sedition.
“…The choices and decisions we soon make as a nation will determine which path we go down and whether we fall to our collective destruction or maintain the integrity and strength of our Union…”
Too late. The nations’s wealth has already been redistributed to the top one percent.
“…435 men and women are the voices of the people who comprise this great land. Each congressional district, represented by a fellow citizen of their state, duly elected to be a voice in Washington D.C. for the people. Each district is due the strongest voice they can elect who represents their will and their beliefs…”
That’s all well and good. This reads like it was taken from one of your fifth grade government essays cribbed together after you’d slept through a week of class.
“…I am that strongest voice for the 4th Congressional District of the State of Missouri…”
That’s debatable, especially without unlimited campaign funds.
“…My voice has informed, influenced, and inspired millions of people during my tenure as a television news anchor. My voice has been on live TV for more than 23,000 hours…”

Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend spree would leave hardworking Americans with greater debt and higher taxes. 4:10 PM · Oct 26, 2021
Some of the hilarious responses:
We just stopped spending $10M a month in Afghanistan, but GOD FORBID we invest in America or Americans, am I right? [….]
The Build Back America plan invests in US infrastructure- small towns, Education, Broadband, Lowers Drug Costs, Children- all of which 70% of Americans want. Supposedly items you said YOU want. But it’s always going to be Party over Constituents, isn’t it?
Translation: “We don’t mind ballooning the deficit as long as it helps billionaires but not ordinary Americans.”
.Are the taxes on your multiple houses going up? Oh the horrors!
Do you really expect us to believe this???? You know this is false!
No, your billionaire tax break already did that.
Rich guy doesn’t want his $1,500,000,000 unpaid for @gop tax cut taken away..
So, sorta like the tax cuts, right Senator??
Republicans cut taxes for the top 1% and added 7 trillion to the debt, Roy. That’s what you’re leaving hardworking Americans.
If you are concerned about greater debt, why did you vote for the Trump tax cuts that went overwhelmingly to the 1%.
Of course, the child tax credit doesn’t help working Americans — those in the 1%
You are what you are, sir.
They will leave the average American worker with lower taxes, and definitely LESS federal debt. All proposed programs are PAID FOR up front, not ten years after the fact.
Well, not completely. Americans who have incomes north of $400K/year would see a tax hike. Fewer loopholes too.
But otherwise … lies.
As opposed to the greater debt and higher taxes you have created in your decades of poor service? I just feel the energy bleed out of your poor staff as they cut and paste these from some donors email. Sorry kids. Get a better job.
See this is y’all’s trend today. Lie about spending.
Do your damn homework, Ray Ray and stop being untruthful.[….]
The Trump-Republican give-away tax cut for the rich was a cynical show of disregard for average Americans. That’s where the greater debt and need for higher taxes on the wealthy comes from: Republican bowing before their rich donors.
Billionaires aren’t hardworking Americans.
It’s time they pay their fair share.
Big Lie supporter has thoughts on economics.
If I had a million dollars for every time you posted this lie, I’d be very wealthy and I still wouldn’t have as much as you voted to give billionaires.
Not doing it will leave hardworking Americans with the consequences of catastrophic climate change.
You didn’t care about the costs when it came to shoveling money into your rich friends’ wallets. The Dems are actually trying to improve America.
How about you being a good guy?
Hasn’t ever happened, never will.
So, why have all thr recent Democratic presidents had to restore the economy after all thr Republican Presidents left it in shambles?
So easy to remember that it even fits on a bumper sticker.
Oh, the GOP talking points are bad.
Hey Roy, go tell your hardworking constituents you don’t want to help make their lives a little easier after YOU voted for TRILLIONS in tax cuts for billionaires & corporations who PAY ZERO TAXES.
You don’t give a damn about “hardworking Americans.”
Republicans reckless trickle-down theory has left hard-working Americans poorer than they were 30 years ago. You and your buddies have killed the middle-class.

“Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday.”
[….] 12:42 PM · Oct 26, 2021
Some of the responses:
Last year we had no Thanksgiving celebration thanks to pandemic. 3 of us in my family made food and delivered to high risk friends. This year we will have over 20 for dinner. So thankful. Also, the company I work for having a record breaking sales year despite cost increases.
I sincerely doubt it. But then, I plan ahead like any frugal person banking against fluctuations in pricing. I buy on sale and freeze it. Have turkey and cranberries in the freezer.
That’s ok. Last Thanksgiving I was praying my immunosuppressed brother would survive.
And you have had a major starring role in causing this.
Good thing you gave those tax breaks to billionaires a few years ago though. Now they can afford Thanksgiving!
Yep, Roy, things are more expensive. Tell us what your role in that was and what you’re doing (or not doing) to remedy that.
Umm, you do realize THANKSgiving is not about food, right?
That is Capitalism 101 at work- supply and demand.
Senator Blunt, share with us the cost of YOUR Thanksgiving dinner last year to this year’s cost?
Explain the hardship this is causing you and your family this year.
What’s your point? I’ve had 2 adult children survive Covid without being hospitalized (pre-Delta & pre-vaccines) and we’re all fully vaccinated now. I have more than enough to be thankful for. We don’t need to eat ourselves into oblivion to be happy.
The reason for the season…
Will your cook have to purchase less food?
Blunt longs for the good ol’ pandemic days
Why do you think that is, Roy? Be truthful now. I know that’s a hard ask.
Why don’t you find something to be thankful for?
You’re not gonna starve, Roy.
It seems you prefer last year when the economy was in free fall? Or how about 2008 during the Great Republican Recession brought to you by Bush the Neverending War Mongerer? This year we have half the child poverty we had a year ago!Vaccines are here!War is over! I’m celebrating.
Congratulations. You’ve discovered inflation – even normal inflation.
Prices rise every year. This isn’t new.
What’s new is your pathetic partisan trolling.
Please consider retiring with dignity instead of this nonsense.
That ship sailed long ago.
Frankly, Roy, I’m just grateful to be alive. Y’all have done your best to kill us off. I don’t need or want a fancy meal. Take your fear mongering and shove it.
Actually, your Thanksgiving will be super-cheap, Roy, if you take my advice and eat shit.
