MARK! This is an email from Nancy Pelosi! Republicans have TAKEN US to the DESERT and forced us to DIG our own GRAVES! There has NEVER been a more important time for you to donate $5, $10 or $20 on a recurring basis. SIGN our petition asking them not to extrajudicially murder us
The thing that probably worries me most is that there seem to be a lot of people - even on the Democratic/progressive side - that have not *fully* priced in the possibility of a bad outcome for our democracy in coming years.

Pretty genius, IMHO
My latest: Someone has spent the past four years creating fake Mossad recruiting websites and buying Google Ads to target them at intelligence and military veterans from Iran, the Assad regime, and Hezbollah. thedailybeast.com/shady-netw…

Asking a government to foresee anything is like asking that fish to ride that goddamn bicycle

Also worth reading this memo Thurgood Marshall sent to his colleagues in 1978 as they were deliberating about the Bakke case which both upheld and limited AA:

Sometimes it's immoral not to be glad someone is dead.
Guitarist ‘Big Merv' Shields of notorious #Nazi band #Screwdriver, instrumental in the notorious Blood and Honour neo-Nazi music network, had died from #Covid. He was unvaccinated and called Covid a ‘Leftie Jewish Plot.’

By the logic of pandemic libertarians, Typhoid Mary had the right to cook for any unsuspecting families she wanted to—even after she knew about the typhoid and even if she made others sick and people died, because she herself wasn’t sick. That also was her contention back then.

It's all been a fascinating insight into straight dating. "He slept with someone the night before he went on a date with me!". But he didn't like leave you mid-date to go on a grindr hook up, so what you complaining about?

5x times as many cops have died from Covid as from gunfire since 2020
One officer gets shot and the world goes crazy. Cops kill well over a thousand Americans a year (with zero prosecutions) and most of the time it’s crickets.

You can't reform this.
I really hope you guys will read this. I’ve been working on it a while. It really shows – in a sort of shocking microscopic way -- what inevitably happens when you incentivize criminalization of people for profit. (1/12) al.com/news/2022/01/police-i…

They'll fight it, but I predict the San Bernardino Sheriff will eventually agree to a settlement that bars them from enforcement activities directed at the cannabis industry. They're fucking with people who have money and a will to protect what's theirs.
The San Bernardino Sheriff and the feds are not targeting Empyreal because they suspect any wrongdoing, but because they know Empyreal provides armored car services to the cannabis industry. This is highway robbery with badges. reason.com/2022/01/18/kansas…
