Supreme Court rejects appeal from 3 GOP House members over $500 mask fines

[abcnews.go.com]

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected appeals from three Republican U.S. House members who challenged fines for not wearing face coverings on the House floor in 2021.

The justices did not comment on leaving in place $500 fines issued in May 2021 to U.S. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Ralph Norman of South Carolina.

The mask requirement was part of the House's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the mandate remained in place even after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidance noting that “fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing.”

The lawmakers showed up on the House floor without masks, even posing for a selfie. The requirement was lifted in June 2021...


The fines grew on a sliding scale for repeat offenses. MTG's fines hit $100,000.

Some punishments need to include beatings.

They weren't required to get the shot. The mask was just a dress code violation.

It was deducted from their paychecks.

So MTG earned $75,000 from her "job" that year. (And supposedly about $700,000 from payola insider trading other endeavors.)

I guess she figures the media coverage was worth it.

Thanks.
It makes me furious that congress people like her get paid anything.
She is not doing even a passable job and yet she gets her check each payday.

Since we’re talking about her,

MTG's fashion advice for conservative women blows up in her face

Quote

In total, the recently-divorced Georgia Republican who was reportedly involved in multiple affairs with a "tantric sex guru" and the manager of a gym she used in 2012 while married, wrote, "There are many conservative Christian women, who are influencers or leaders, that are selling themselves short and not being good role models by conforming to the world’s sexualization of women.

"If you are conservative and a Christian you know you don’t have to express yourself in sexual ways and you know you are attractive by dressing nice and feminine, and you can be beautiful and modest at the same time."

…It’s also good to not tempt your Christian brothers and cause them to stumble.”

The girl can't help it.

And that's about as far as the similarity goes.

She does see opportunity almost anywhere.



Just when I think I can’t dislike her any more, she makes me.


It's a gift, and a curse, LOL.

But maybe none of here extramarital hook-ups were Christians.

Nor particularly choosey.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

That photo of MTG is on her Instagram page (I'm not an Instagram user), and it's interesting to see some go the "Related accounts" on her page.

A lot of the usual, expected suspects:
- Keri Lake
- Matt Gaetz
- Rudy Giuliani
- Team Trump
- Donald Trump
- Mike Lindell

But also some odd, some revealing, and some downright weird:
- Breitbart
- Tucker Carlson
- Ted Cruz
- Alina Habba
- Rosanne Barr
- Project Veritas
- Sebastian Gorka
- Gateway Pundits
- Dinesh D'Souza
- Prager U
