I do NOT believe the voters of PA chose Fetterman any more than I believe Biden beat Trump nor Hobbs beat Lake, just to name a few horribly fraudulent elections in the last few years. Those who lock themselves in the basement are those who know the fix is in.

what is there to say when all that has been said should be enough to convince the people of Pennsylvania that they made a huge mistake electing this intellectual delinquent to the United States Senate he's never worked a day in his life so why should anyone expect that, overnight, he'll be this Knight in shining armor arriving on the scene to save Pennsylvania and the "nation from all enemy's foreign and domestic" not gonna happen

After a stroke, the most improvement is during the first six months, followed by the second six months. After that, there's not much improvement. After watching a dear friend recover from a stroke (thankfully treated quickly), I can attest to how much hard work goes into the recovery - intense therapy at first, then exercises every day for months. All the therapy and exercises took up most of every morning, seven days a week, followed by resting from the exertion. Fetterman frittered away most of his first year post-stroke running for office and getting installed in office. He should have focused on his recovery instead. Now, he's probably realizing that he's never going to be any better than he is now. That has to be a depressing revelation.

The pathetic potted plant Fetterman is not even remotely fit for the job of U.S. senator--or for any other job. He exists; that's all he does. He takes up a lot of space. That the Democrats pushed him of all people over the top ought to damage if not destroy the party's future prospects, but stupid people cast stupid votes, and PA's got more than its fair share of those. Cheating helped this useless pol a lot, as well. The Donks had all bases covered in that race against Dr. Oz, except that they had a player who should have been first base instead of first baseman. If Fetterman could swim, he'd be "Bob."

He admitted during the campaign he had no interest in the day to day debates or fashioning of legislation, he was only running to be a "Reliable 51st vote for the Biden Agenda", now....he's not even reliable. In the Senate you have to BE THERE to vote. Instead of electing a Doctor...Pa has someone that needs an army of Doctors, at Walter Reed, full time...just to keep him from reverting to a puddle of pudding. No matter...those that propped him up, and denied he was incapable can count on the Dem Governor to simply appoint his replacement. Likely the goal to begin with. Add this to Fiensteins being obviously oblivious...she didn't even know that she had announced she was stepping down, her staff had to remind her....right in front of the press. Both should be required to state "Being of sound mind and body...and describe the Bill they are about to vote on" before any vote can be cast. Their "Staff" are not elected...if it is only the staff that are doing the work, no vote from them should be counted.

I would be depressed also knowing that I should be concentrating on my physical health after a stroke instead of playing a pretend senator. Shame on everyone who pushed him into running a fraudulent campaign. It's my understand his wife is Mrs. FJB in disguise who in turn is channeling Edith Wilson. Shame on these women.

As more information about how grave his condition was during the campaign period, and how he likely impacted his health by doing even that minimal amount of campaign activity, I would say this would be a bait and switch operation. Could there be a case for fraud against the people of Pennsylvania? And, how little do Democrats consider the health and well-being of people when they allow such a thing to happen to him? Did he really know what he was being asked to do and how it might impact his overall health? That his wife allowed it to be done is about all you need to know about her desire for an elevated position of power. Wonder if a case could be made that DiFi does not have the capacity to be a Senator, and now Fetterman does not possess the capacity to do the job either, that the GOP actually has a Majority?

OK people, let's get something straight right now. "Pennsylvania" did not elect Fetterman. He was foisted on us by a combination of democrat election shenanigans and abominably stupid democrats (but I repeat myself), especially those living in and around the cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Where I live, you could count the number of Fetterman voters on the fingers of one hand. We knew he was another Joe Biden; a mentally challenged, underqualified and overhyped cypher whose sole purpose is to give a vote to the powers that control him behind the scenes.

On February 9, New Jersey Italian restaurant Nettie’s House of Spaghetti, despite having a name that makes it sound like a children’s restaurant, issued a statement across its social media accounts that beginning in early March, they would no longer allow children under 10 to dine at the restaurant. The announcement made headlines and points to the perennial debate over whether banning kids under a certain age from eating at restaurants is reasonable. This debate is, of course, not new. There will always be a steady stream of new children coming to restaurants with their parents, and some of those children will act in accordance with their developmental tendencies.

The order, made in the middle of Black History month, extends an order Biden made on his first day in office requiring federal agencies to investigate inequities within their departments and to proactively address shortcomings. That is now an annual requirement. The aim is to deliver “equitable outcomes” for all Americans, including underserved communities, through government policies, programs, and services.
