    This is why Trump will come roaring back.

    Their pettiness is beyond reproach:

    Democrats introduce bill to bar 'twice impeached' presidents from Arlington Cemetery burial

    House Democrats are trying to make sure no one remembers former President Donald Trump.

    With a bill that doesn't mention Trump's name but is clearly aimed at him, a collection of Democratic House members are looking to block any "twice impeached" president from pretty much any recognition on federal land. That includes barring federal funds from going toward building a dedicated "highway, park, subway, federal building, military installation, street, or other federal property" as well as preventing that president's burial at Arlington National Cemetery.
    You can't unburn bridges.

    Well now. What's to say he wants to be buried there? Or does his wife?

    The bile on the Democratic side is boundless.

    House Democrats Introduce ‘No Glory for Hate Act’ to Prevent Trump Name from Being Displayed on Federal Projects
    Democrats in the House of Representatives have introduced legislation that would prevent former President Donald Trump from having his name displayed on federal projects, buildings, statues, lands, or other type of commemoration.

    According to the bill’s text, which was provided late last month, the legislation would “prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents.” While Trump is not mentioned by name in the proposed legislation, he is the only president to have been impeached twice by the House.

    The bill, dubbed the “No Glory for Hate Act,” was introduced by California Democrat Rep. Linda Sanchez and has 13 cosponsors, all of whom are Democrats.

    “For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th,” Sanchez said in a statement last month.

    “A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honours bestowed on a former president,” Sanchez added. “We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate, not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”

    The bill specifically prevents federal funds from being used to “create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives,” including “any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property.”

    And yet FDR, who on this date 79 years ago mandated that Japanese Americans, many 2nd or 3rd generation US citizens born in this country, be "relocated" to internment camps, is lauded by Democrats and has his name prominently displayed throughout the country.

    But Trump bad.
    We are so fucked.

    Not a chance in Hell:

    Joe Biden Finally Says What A Lot Of People Are Thinking About Donald Trump

    President Joe Biden is so over his predecessor.

    “I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump,” he said during Tuesday night’s town hall event in Milwaukee. “I don’t want to talk about him anymore.”

    He said it twice during the event, including when asked about Trump’s second impeachment acquittal.

    “Look, for four years all that’s been in the news is Trump,” Biden explained. “The next four years I want to make sure all the news is the American people.”
    Of course the Leftist replies are all "yes, us too", etc but there is no way in Hell that the Leftist media can ever quit Trump. He's their bread and butter.

    If they stopped talking about Trump for two seconds they may actually have to cover Biden, or worse yet, be real reporters.
    You can't unburn bridges.

    I swear I have never seen people more consumed by hatred than those who hate Trump. I mean, it's just flat-out bizarre how otherwise normal people have had their minds twisted up in such a way. One of my brothers just a week or so ago announced at the dinner table that he hates all Slovenians now because of Melania. And this is a guy who wrote an entire book on how the hatred of Jews rose in Europe in the early 1900s (as if there wasn't enough hatred there beforehand). This hatred is just plain weird.

    I've never liked the guy personally, before or after any political aspirations. I thought he was a blowhard and arrogant as all get-out from way back in the '80s, and I never trusted him politically. I think that he was a bully on the campaign trail and had I met him face-to-face, I likely would have punched him dead in the nose just on principle alone. But the simple, undeniable fact is that as President, he did a shitload of good for this country, and literally everyone in it. Not a single one of these hate-filled assholes turned their nose up at the big bonuses that they got when corporate taxes were drastically cut. None of them minded when their tax bill was lowered. I have yet to see one of these shitbags who said that they would refuse to take a covid vaccination developed under Trump actually do anything but roll up their sleeve at the earliest opportunity, as if the vaccine somehow magically changed at noon eastern time on January 20.

    I still don't much care for the guy personally. He botched it up pretty damn good on the spending bit of things, for example, so his Presidency was far from perfect. But he faced headwinds far stronger than has ever been thrown at a President. Even though I'm reasonably convinced that this past election was a cock-up of epic proportions, I think that Trump carried on the fight longer than he should have. He should have had the same duration as Al Gore had and then it was time to bow out as gracefully as possible at that point.

    Despite all of my misgivings, despite the fact that it is indisputable that Joe Biden is a drooling moron, a racist, and a crook, and that he's clearly just a marionette, I still don't have any sort of hatred for him, and certainly not to the level of these other weirdoes totally consumed by their hatred of one man who, when you really stop and think about it, has pretty much nothing to do with your day-to-day life.

    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    Today House Democrats introduced the Trump Is A Big Fat Doodyhead Act, which will require every gender and orientation of all humans in the United States to refer to former President Trump only as Big Fat Doodyhead. Representatives Rashida Tlaib (D-MI.), Hank Johnson (D-GA), and Debbie Dingell (D-MI), co-sponsors of the bill, released a statement saying, "We believe it's important for all Americans to share our view of former twice-impeached President Trump -- I mean, Big Fat Doodyhead -- and while this bill may be seen as a violation of the First Amendment, we feel unity of thought is far more important in these troubled times."

    Provisions of the bill would require striking Trump's name from all government documents, including making his pension checks payable to "Big Fat Doodyhead".
    “I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
    I aim with my eye.

    "I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
    I shoot with my mind.

    "I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
    I kill with my heart.”

    I still distinguish between the provocateurs, the hate mongers, and the pedestrian liberal, such as several of my friends and relatives. The hate is intensifying, I think, and finding support in new government policies (e.g. Biden Administration Prepares Way For Banks To Refuse Service To Democrats’ Enemies).

    More than just the danger such growing hate poses for so many, it serves an equally important purpose, in the eyes of the provocateurs, of blocking out adverse reality. If Biden policies are wrecking balls to our ship of state, and they are, the hate blocks out any concern about them. None of my liberal friends supports the obliteration of Israel, but they will turn a blind eye to policy changes that work to that end, because Trump. The hate prevents rational discussion among the Democrats of exactly what's going on with Biden's policies.

    Trump's accomplishments are being deliberately washed away. The price of gas is jumping, the border is open, and minorities, black and Spanish-speaking, will never see anything like the low unemployment numbers they briefly enjoyed under Trump, not with 20 million plus amnestied immigrants competing for jobs.

    Here's the red pill:

    Our Dire Future Under Biden
    . . . The Biden administration seems hell bent on reversing every Trump administration policy, even those policies that were quite successful.
    . . . So, this is why I contemplate the coming Biden years with great anxiety.

    So those are the reasons I find the current times more troubling than any I have lived through. Those reasons consist of the things team Biden has done or will do, and the things that team Biden should do but won’t. Until law and order, both in our cities and at the border, is highly prized; until the military is de-politicized; until jobs are a legislative priority; until differing opinions are not censored and their advocates not de-platformed or fired; and until the quintessential bourgeois values of two parents for children, education, and hard work are widely esteemed, I will fear for my country and the fate of my children and grandchildren.
