Controversial Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert raised eyebrows after posting a meme of a U.S. map that omitted two states and U.S. territories. “Sometimes a meme says it best,” she wrote with the words in the image reading, “Map showing the only place my taxes should go to.”
Aside from the abject stupidity of BoBo’s meme, we do not get to pick and choose where our tax dollars go — except by voting. Congress holds the purse strings. And holy cow, she is a member of Congress, and she doesn’t know how this works.

Or, a GIF, when a US Congresswoman forgets Alaska and Hawaii are states and there are places like Puerto Rico: pic.twitter.com/cgoh7CywFQ

Stay in school kids, so you learn about Alaska, and Hawaii, and Guam and other territories owned by the US. This Lauren Karen Boebert lady struggled to get a GED. https://t.co/Z0Ju8BGAhQ

What an absolute embarrassment. Boebert earned a GED diploma just months before she won her seat in Congress, and she should request a refund because that brainless twit doesn’t know basic geography.
