It’s not often that a post falls into so many of my categories (see above), but this one certainly does:
Actions have consequences. So do inactions. Just ask Minnesota Governor Tim Walz. Walz had asked the federal government for $500 million to help the city of Minneapolis rebuild after riots destroyed or damaged more than 1500 buildings. The government refused.
Excuse me for a moment…
Ooooh, the Schadenboner is great with this one — all the more so when we hear the sniffling and whining:
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s office said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
…and the response:
In a statement, a FEMA rep confirmed the request had been denied, saying it was determined that “the impact to public infrastructure is within the capabilities of the local and state governments to recover from.”
Yup. You fucking loony Lefties thought you could fuck around and play your little utopian games without consequences, and now you’re going to have to pay for the repairs yourselves.
And for those who think that this will cause Trump to lose Minnesota in November: the people who are in the deepest shit now weren’t going to vote for Trump anyway, and the right-thinking people of Minnesota are probably just as pissed off with Walz and his cronies as everyone outside the state is. In the cold-blooded electoral calculus, this will probably turn out to help Trump, not only in Minnesota but everywhere else. The Left needs to have the effects of their lunacy and misgovernment rubbed in their noses good and hard, and most of all, publicly.
Wait till New York hands in its bill… if they have the nerve to do so, after this.
In the meantime, I’m going to have a couple-three quiet lunchtime cocktails of this stuff.
