L.B.'s Twitter round up #5
Fire the teachers,
Justin Campbell @jcamp1521Fact Check This Podcast Ep. 128 End Teacher's Unions! I'd prefer the entire Department of Education...but at the very least, we should start with one of the most vile collections of child-haters...school administration! https://t.co/MMUz1VB7dX
This is the approach you should take in you rhetoric as it relates to continued school closures. If the teachers don’t want to do their job (work in-person) they don’t deserve to be paid. Let them be fired and help the shortage of workers at fast-food restaurants. Then they would actually be helping people.
Evan McMullin 🇺🇸 @EvanMcMullinUnfortunately, far-right leaders like Mike Lee don’t see it that way. They think politicians should choose their voters, not the other way around. I'm running to protect our democracy and I need your help 👇 https://t.co/nrMKL9aNJ9
Evan McMullin is a former CIA deputy who was able to put together a last minute presidential campaign in 2016 to pull votes away from Donald Trump. Now, he’s running for Senator of Utah and pointing out exactly what I driving at in “Conservatives: Stop protesting at Applebee’s.” In 2022, patriotism is considered far right.
Tom Woods @ThomasEWoodsYeah, he's wrong on weed. But FFS, libertarians, can we try to understand what's actually happening in the world just this once? https://t.co/nyKHrQ9nWy
Getting on The Tom Woods Show in many ways would be cooler than going on Joe Rogan, if only because I listen to Tom more.
James Jenneman @jamesljWhen did it click for you that every major narrative crafted by the university/media/bureaucrat class since at least the Wilson era has been wholly deceptive (if sometimes technically factual when convenient). Do you remember what it was like for you?
Really good question from my friend James
You know, because they were fired?
Catholic News Agency @cnaliveA Catholic bishop has criticized leaders of Germany’s “Synodal Way” for delaying a debate on gender-neutral language. https://t.co/BFM3a0XTRU
Probably not the best topic for a Church who calls God “Our Father”
Claire Lehmann @clairlemonIf you hate elites so much, why don’t you want to raise their taxes?
A few people gave some good answers, but the best answer is of course that you can’t raise taxes on the elite, you can only raise taxes on the rich who don’t have power and influence (and therefore aren’t the problem.) Lockdowns have broken a lot of people, Quillette founder Claire Lehmann is one of them.
Stars and Stripes @starsandstripesThe Supreme Court has stopped the Biden administration from enforcing a requirement that employees at large businesses be vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing and wear a mask on the job. https://t.co/l173LNH2gg
Reed Coverdale, Extremist @Reed_CoverdaleMan, I hope it’s pro-vaccine Trump vs Hillary in 2024. No better scenario for a @ComicDaveSmith run for POTUS!
Dave Smith is a national treasure who deserves the largest platform libertarians can give him, that’s why he needs to run as Republican.
This one is worth meditating on.
Viewer discretion advised.
As the highest paid government employee, he is by definition in the 1% of income earners.
On the nature of ethnicity and “a people”
Brad Polumbo 🇺🇸⚽️ 🏳️🌈 @brad_polumboWe are not "corporate libertarians." We are free-market capitalists. That makes us the ENEMIES of Big Business more often than allies. Big Business LOVES Big Government. They want all their subsidies, crony regulations, etc. We're coming for ALL of that.
I don’t care about the word based, but I care about poor analysis bearing the name libertarian or free-market capitalist. So I’m going to keep an eye on their “based” takes.
