I personally hope that Beau Biden is not afflicted with any serious illness.

It is this context which makes my criticism liable to reaction for callousness and insensitivity. I want to know how it is that Air Force to is used to transport the son of the vice president of the United States home from hospital? Is it justified because the vice president accompanied him?

Are we not condoning not just cronyism but nepotism? Why are some of the most precious and expensive facilities in the United States of America used for this purpose? Does an ordinary citizen have a an equal claim?

Or is that claim limited to Portuguese water dogs?

True Believers quickly point out that there were “other people on the plane”.

As the dog is not a pilot, one would hope so.

FWIW, hubby’s cardio surgeon pretty much implied that his 3x bypass was his ‘one and done’ shot.

Apparently he only deserves to be saved once.

Actually the use of government assets for this purpose is probably a violation of the Purpose Statute. A clear violation of law...

I am split on here. First of all he isn’t just the son of the Vice President. He is the AG of Delaware that he won through voters. Secondly, I would imagine that being born a Biden was helpful in getting the treatment, but keep in mind that being born a Biden also saw tragedy with his Mother and I believe sister getting killed in a car accident when he was young. I would imagine that he would rather be a regular “Smith” and have his Mother back so being a Biden is not necessarily a great thing.
