Wouldn't it be just as "unconstitutional" to force people to wear pants as it is for Home Depot to force them to wear masks?
I would like to bet everything I have that his response to this would be "I'm not lookin to see any DONG but if hot chicks want to go to Home depo without pants on Im in!!!"

Add a few random capitalizations, and you'd have it.

Herman Cain was my mom's favorite Conservative Black Guy Who Says Stuff To Make Me Feel Better About My Casual Racism, so I can't say I'm too sad to see him go. Doubly so because he died directly due to being an ignorant dick about Covid just so he could earn brownie points with Trump.

I honestly don't understand how guys like Cain, Cruz, Ben Carson, etc could be so fucking stupid, but yet were obviously pretty damn smart and accomplished earlier in life. Brain worms? What happened?

Part grift, part self-hate, part ideological fanaticism (i.e. "OMG socialism is worse than racism!"), etc. A little of this, a little of that.

All of this, but I still thin Trump has to have shit on these guys. Especially Lindsay Graham. Maybe his buddy who owns the Enquirer has lady bug pics or something far worse.

For guys like Cain, it's that weird thing a tiny sliver of African Americans that get a huge kick out of the (faux) adulation and acceptance they get from The White Folks. It's a weird blindspot that doesn't allow them to step out of themselves and see the context and reality of what they're doing.

It'd be sad if it wasn't so fucking obvious.

It was bound to happen...found out that someone I knew has died from Covid-19.

When my GF and I went to Merida Mexico about 1 1/2 years ago, and big group of us stayed at home with Juan as a caretaker. Super nice guy...changed money for us when we got there late in the evening, and drove us around town and to a restaurant where we could get a late dinner. Also was incredibly helpful with everything about the house.

Found out last night that Juan died on Saturday.
