Even if it is only symbolic... At least there is one man willing to go to extreme lengths in an effort to fight something that is absolutely horrible for the American people and is being used as a weapon against political opponents of the Democrats. Congress shall pass no law that applies to the people but does not apply to themselves. They exempted themselves from this disaster. They exempted all of their friends and family from it. It's corruption at its finest.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”
