Oops, progressive moment. Only one is married to him, the other one had no choice but to put up with him.
In any case, my best wishes to both for a full recovery.
Best wishes for a swift and full recovery.
Thank you, I knew you cared!
Thank God they’re OK. Anyone who’s had a loved one nearly die knows what a gut punch this kind of situation is.
“Not just as a way of showing we are not like the sick bastards on the left who wish death and disease on their political opponents and their families.”
In that spirit, I’m going to wish a long, healthy and happy life to Harry Reid and the rest of the Fascist scum who are trying to destroy our country and take over our lives.
Ah, I feel SO much better now...
The truck rear ended them. Unless they cut him off at the last minute, it is the trucker’s fault.
You are supposed to maintain a clear distance from the vehicle in front.
Prayers up for the injured. A steaming pile for Harry.
‘Course when you’re rear-ended you can fake all kinds of injuries. Happened to me when I rear-ended some tin can with no damage to my rig, and minor damage to the sucker who braked to make an illegal left turn immediately after a left turn (watch those, dude!) My insurance company decided it wasn’t worth the trouble pursuing the fake new age (chiro “dr”) claim of the young female “victim”.
OK you are indeed also correct. Point taken.
Well, I had already prayed but I just thought it was probably mild injuries!
Sounds to me like a teamster trucker was putting a little Chicago style pressure on Reid.
I wouldn’t put anything past the zero.
I hate to be cold.....but from reported injuries, it sounds like they weren’t buckled up.
Interesting. Will any media outlet publicize it? Waiting...
Yes. A speedy recovery to the Reids.
What were they driving or we they being chauferred? a semi and a car usually means the car loses.
From the article -
"All involved were wearing seat belts, police said".
I saw that. But, airbags should have preveted facial lacerations. And seat belts should have prevented other injuries.When you get rear ended, your head snaps back, it doesn’t go forward. The airbags would have prevented facial lacerations on the daughter.Just my opinion.
