    Thanks @Vort.
    I'm relieved for the benefit of Veterans. When satire mimics reality too closely, I'll admit I got Babylon Beed.

    Only a tad too far?
    If what he is doing only constitutes a 'tad', then we clearly have different understandings about what is going on around us.

    Biden Orders VA To Withhold Health Benefits From Unvaccinated Veterans
    Biden told Veterans:
    I realize several people here voted for our current President, and thus a natural desire to minimize the damage he is doing in order to feel better about the past vote, but like Biden would say... "C'mon Man!"

    It would be kinda hard to use one's religion as a reason to not be vaccinated when the leader, the president of the Church, is vaccinated. One can't really say, "It goes against my religion," like a Jehovah Witness could say, "It's against my religion to have a blood transfusion."
    I think @clwnuke provided a good example with a mandate for drinking coffee. In that scenario we would have a leg to stand on as it pertains to being a member of good standing.

    Coming to a hospital near you - the unintended consequences of poor policy decisions!
    NY Hospital Forced To Stop Delivering Babies After Maternity Workers Resign Over Vaccine
    A hospital in upstate New York has been forced to 'pause' the delivery of babies starting Sept. 24 after a flood of maternity workers resigned over Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

    Lewis County Health System CEO Gerald Cayer made the announcement in a Friday press conference, according to WWNY. According to Cayer, six employees in the maternity unit resigned and another seven are 'undecided,' rendering the hospital unable to safely deliver children.
    "If we can pause the service and now focus on recruiting nurses who are vaccinated, we will be able to reengage in delivering babies here in Lewis County," said Cayer.

    @anatess2 isn't on these boards anymore. I know there's a number of people on the right who defend nation building, but I haven't seen nearly as much this board. Maybe I'm missing something. Quick poll: Who here thinks that when we deploy troops (or even drones) there should be a well-defined scope and it should not include nation-building? Bonus question: Who here thinks Congress should grow a spine and formally declare war before deploying troops?
    As for the initial wars - I'll remind you that there was bipartisan support for both Iraq and Afghanistan (including Senator Clinton), can the same be said for such infrastructure as universal pre-K? 
    Spending bills are set for 10-year windows. Should we compare it against total Medicaid spending without drawing attention to the difference in time scales?
    Now that we're out of Afghanistan we might save $1T over the next 10 years (I don't think that's how the actual numbers work but let's use it) then that means we can now fund almost 1/3 of this spending bill. In other words, this proposed bill is 3 1/2 Afghanistans! @Grunt and @JohnsonJones have expressed that what bugs them about this bill is how it will affect our debt. Assuming they were okay with the Afghanistan spending I'm sure you can see how replacing that with triple spending might make a taxpayer or citizen nervous.
    And the Afghanistan spending was done by Federal agencies directly accountable to both the Executive and Legislative branches. This bill includes some Federal things (like Medicaid expansion) but a significant portion is going to the States to administer. @mikbone expressed concern about how the funds would be handled (incompetently) locally. Even if he was okay with the Federal administration of tax dollars for the Afghanistan War I'm sure you can see how including State and local governments in the administration would make a person nervous when they haven't shown themselves to be very trustworthy in the past (such as the light rail train to nowhere in recent years).
    I could see a person wanting FEMA to come offer relief instead of passing money to your mafia-run construction agencies.
    All this rhetoric is built on "if". Your comment is a complete non sequitur if most posters on here would like less hawkishness from our Executives.

    It is interesting to me that throughout history that prior to any catastrophic event that there were "signs" indicating that something was wrong - but, for whatever reason the vast majority of individuals felt that they would somehow be excluded and an exception to what was changing.  
    It is my understanding that for the most part the Latter-day Saints will not be exempted from the trials and tribulations of the Last-days except that they will be better prepared to endure them.
    As I understand economics - deficit government spending is a precursor to inflation.  Inflation is a cause of suffering and unrest that is almost always a companion of war.  Not since the Civil War has a war been fought on our American soil.  I could be wrong but I am under the impression that the Saints will be drawn into war that is a continuation of previous wars in which the Saints has fought.

    What do you do when you completely and humiliatingly botch the entire exit out of Afghanistan?
    What do you do when can't fix employment shortages, out of control inflation, when being woke starts to backfire on you, etc??
    You deflect, you redirect and you get the peasants distracted by something else... like more mandates that threaten their livelihood. 
    When you can't win anything abroad and you have burned all our international credibility, try threatening those at home with the sword instead. 

    If the Taliban are the new choir boys... then simply classify the unvaxxed as the new terrorist? Pit family against family, neighbor against neighbor or church member against church member.
    Our city just received one of the recent 13 KIA service members from Afghanistan. 
    Our city for one, will not be so quick to forget or easily distracted.
