    • The worst thing about getting roasted on Twitter, is it is the same couple thousand mentally ill lunatics that lead every other Twitter mob. There has to be away these lunatics can be marginalized.

      Of course, when I hear about cities, states, and counties assembling “COVID task forces”, that money is not going toward public health, it is going toward subsidizing….a handful of mentally ill lunatics on Twitter to lead the mob against anyone who dares disagree.

  1. Sorry honey, this: “I understand there’s a pandemic and I understand it’s very scary. I’m scared of it too. If you’re at risk, do not leave your house until there’s a vaccine.”

    Does not square with this: “But shutting down all these small businesses, things that people have worked their life for, shutting them down again is not the answer. Because they will not make it.”

    This is the shit sandwich YOU wanted, Mrs. Stafford, so go ahead and take a nice big bite and really savor the shittiness.

    • Both statements can be mutually exclusive and true. Especially as we are working with a virus that is affecting a very specific part of the population.

      We should not be shuttering businesses or issuing lockdowns. Employing responsibility based on personal situations is where it’s should begin and end.

  2. Of course the brainwashed coronabros are attacking her on Twitter. As a result, she caved and did a Drew Brees. She doesn’t get it, they want her to grovel for forgiveness; they won’t stop now.

  3. Hey Ryan,
    I realize it’s WAYYYYY LATE for you to WAKE UP and smell the coffee…but you remember math?…and logic?
    So here’s what you opined: “Where I am completely with Stafford is that it feels fundamentally un-American to force these small businesses to close down for the purported public good, but not compensate them for their sacrifice. There will be ripple effects felt for years to come.”

    Sounds like you somehow stumbled across two ideas here:
    First idea (lesser idea):
    1) Un-American to shut down small businesses WITHOUT COMPENSATING THEM for their sacrifice. So I see why you voted for the socialist MORON Biden…he’ll write checks for everybody as he strangles the economy THAT WOULD SUPPORT people who need help. Socialist Joe straddles you, sticks a check in your pocket while he grabs your nuts, then smiles down at you and strangles you to death. Can YOU think of anything more PERVERSE??? Don’t tax your brain…forget I asked.

    Second idea:
    2) Keep you and your family LOCKED UP AND LOCKED DOWN. Why? Well, you know why, Ryan…you voted for the empty vessel…you man ‘splain it. Confused are ya? Oh, okay. Well it’s about CONTROL…mind control, thought control…domination.

    And your guy…aka “The Big Guy” when whispering about the payoffs and influence peddling that was his HALLMARK for 47 years…including while he stumbled down the halls of the White House.
    You probably weren’t much of a student, because if you knew world history and geopolitics you surely would have TRIPPED OVER a few coincidences and machievellian gambits that might have made you sit up and think, “geez…maybe I should believe in America?”
    Pretty sure your family will be living here…don’t know if you have or plan to have kids…none of my business…but as sure as there’s feathers on chickens (thank you, Tom Petty) your kids will NEVER experience the America you grew up in. That’s LESS THAN CHALK right now in Vegas! I doubt you could even place that bet!

  4. Ya know what, Ryan…don’t even try to walk back the shit you helped create…assuming the cheaters win. It makes you look really greasy…like that Schiff character who lies every time he opens his mouth.

  5. I don’t understand what is so great about the Democrats that still earn your allegiance when you recognize they are literally eroding our fundamental freedoms as human beings (let alone Americans). What could possibly be more important than this? What redeeming quality or policy makes up for their blatant illegal power grabs that keeps you supporting the Democratic Party? Or, are you just paying lip service to Outkick readers by dropping phrases like “un-American” hoping that you can veil or assuage your blatant hypocrisy?

    P.S. I don’t think Rick is buying your commentary either.

  6. The issue is never the issue. The issue is the Revolution. Dictatorship was the correct word. Reason and logic are the currency of truth. Think the hard sciences. Physics and Math. Well, that doesn’t apply anymore. Think the soft sciences. Psychology and sociology, the tools of manipulation. That’s the game being played upon us. We argue and reason and state our cases, for what? We think the team in the other dugout is playing baseball. They’re not. And they brought guns.

    • You are exactly right.To try to argue or debate these feral subhumans is to attempt to dignify that which cannot be dignified. The only choices are to ignore, as one does with a petulant child, or to fight.

  7. stafford’s appology is exactly the reason democrats get away with destruction in nearly everything they touch politically (and physically). stafford backed down and that makes her a coward. a wealthy whiney coward.

    i count my blessings i live in Florida (6 years now). escaped maryland and DC with my sanity. i think.

    when i got here it was home. it felt like home. its too damn hot for 5-6 months and i may leave one day only for dry heat. but it felt and still feels like home, because people LIVE their lives here. even the out of state people LIVE.

    Michigan and PA and Wisconsin and Yes Even Nevada ARE NOT LIVING – only existing.

  8. I’ll add to what Rick said and help Ryan out.

    Your globalist politicans hate humanity. Doesn’t matter if they are bleeding heart libs or bloodythirsty neocons. That’s why they love wars, abortion, genocide, and anything else that promotes death. That’s why they support socialism…real value comes from labor, effort, and merit and socialism is just giving you bread for nothing. It shortcuts ‘you dont work, you dont eat’. It’s unsustainable…hence starvation and mass murder is the next step EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. because you cant feed a bunch of lazy people. Now I dont know if Ryan personally hates humanity, I dont think he does, but I would kindly suggest he learn about humanity is all about the dignity of labor and the sanctity of life.

    • Exactly right. Perfectly stated. I would buy your book. We enjoy life and work, creating and building, and we understand the God-ordained economy of work and reward, and where our blessings come from. They see all of that, and say “mine.”

  9. Never apologize. It’s like blood in the water for the Twitter Mob. It is dictatorship in Michigan, and here in Virginia. Our Black Face Wearing Abortion Loving Governor rules by edict. The impotent Democrat Legislature lets him do it. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

  10. Ryan, weren’t you HAPPY about Biden winning? I did read, that, correct? Well, traitor, this is what you voted for. You make a living in media and you voted for a guy, and a party, that wholeheartedly supports the erosion of free speech. You voted for an anti-liberty party. There is no middle ground once you cast that vote. Own it.

  11. Apologizing for calling out Hitlers granddaughter Whitmer for being the leftist lunatic dictator she is is just asinine. Speak the truth and stick to it. Never apologize to the hate spewing racist terrorist cult known as the DemocRat party or their braindead followers for telling the truth. Let those assholes go into their usual meltdown. They rigged the election and are on the verge of installing their dummy puppet, the mumbling bumbling creepy senile bribe taking criminal pervert Joe Biden in office, and they are still angry and waiting to burn down another city.

  12. She’s right, and no need to apology. Whitmer, her AG and Sec of State all act like two bit dictators and have nothing but contempt for most people. They are also radical leftists. Whitmer had her edicts struck down as unconstitutional by the MI Supreme Court so now she is using the health department to do her bidding. They will all be up for election in 2022 – time to be rid of them.
