‘The tragedy of Afghanistan, 5th avenue and Gavin’s begging’ edition – RedState

I don’t have much to offer to help anyone understand why and how the Biden government so magnificently shattered the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

America’s (many) good people

Last week my wife and I had to take our oldest daughter to the hospital. If you have never seen a young child scream when a catheter was placed (twice); yell, “Don’t touch me!” and “No, I don’t want to!” Dozens of times; and you suffer from near kidney failure, consider yourself lucky. But amid…
