I hope the Democratic candidates will address the new Jane Crow laws that have popped up in MAGAstates (Ohio, Georgia, and Alabama).
Trump is buying votes again.
Men are the weaker sex.
In 2016, pundits assessed Biden as the most consequential (in a positive way) VP in history. Now pundits are rewriting their own history re Biden.
Nature is, frankly, hostile.
Ben Shapiro is another alt-right meathead with a massive following in prisons.
Let’s end all the whatabouts: there’s only one Notre-Dame de Paris.
If people in red states are OK with promiscuous gun laws, then why should anyone care when the laws enable fresh massacres there?
The National Rifle Manufacturers Association no longer bothers to hide its complicity with gun violence.
There’s nothing more socialist than the redistribution of wealth from blue states to MAGAstates.
The DiFi episode was a community organizing “hit” that blew back on the organizers. Alinsky would be embarrassed by @SunriseMvmt
How does one say bone spurs in Russian?
Sanders campaign emailed surrogates and told them to “respectfully” engage opponents. Warned against “bullying and harassment of any kind.” Seems intended to head off the criticism they got in 2016.
Gives Bernie “deniability” when the Bros go off again (on Harris, or Gillibrand, or Warren, or …).
It is sad that major institutions like the Roman Church and the US Republican Party promote homophobia. In a place like the US, medieval monotheism + promiscuous gun laws lead to mass murder.
The problem Fox News doesn’t recognise is that perpetrator’s motives directly overlap with those of arch-conservative religious institutions and conservative politicians in the US. All share a common hatred of homosexuality. Fox News has long provided a platform for bigotry, especially
religious freedom “anti-gay” bigots such as Mike Huckabee.
Mr Trump has promised to ban immigration from many countries, to establish full diplomatic relations with the NRA, and to establish a Muslim Stasi. Anything to avoid sensible gun safety legislation to replace the promiscuous gun laws on the books.
The latest twitter outrage (as reported in The Guardian):
Meryl Streep and three other cast members of the film Suffragette have been the subject of criticism online, after appearing in a photo shoot last week wearing T-shirts featuring a controversial slogan.
“I’d rather be a rebel than a slave,” the slogan read, quoting a 1913 speech by women’s rights activist Emmeline Pankhurst.
Those who can’t comprehend metaphor and/or analogical reasoning will be the ruin of contemporary civilization.
The dirty secret of the National Rifle Manufacturers Association: mass shootings are good for business.
With his blundering in Ukraine and now Syria Mr Putin has become the Russian version of G. W. Bush.
Democrats appear to be taking seriously polling data suggesting Donald Trump would beat Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup. Why? He won’t be elected President. He may not even win the Republican nomination. For now, enjoy the misery of the Republican Party and its Fox News politburo.
The unshirting of the Air France executives, which revealed flabby abs, is the most creative act of popular protest since riding the stang went out of favor.
If civilisation is measured by the absence of gun violence, then the US is one of the most uncivilised places on earth. From the National Rifle Manufacturers Association and its paid politicians to the yokel libertarian sheriff in Oregon, the bulwark of barbarism is immense and apparently impenetrable by the forces of reason.
The only practical conclusion I can draw from this latest incident of barbarism, and the predictable reaction to it, is that Americans (#notallAmericans) prefer to expose themselves and their fellow citizens to the real risk of death posed by gun violence than the hypothetical risk of death posed by “tyranny.”
The meeting between Kim Davis and Pope Francis represents grave evil. As a Jesuit, the Pope should know better than to do anything that might be perceived as support for a barnyard religious bigot.
I’d like a Segway with a selfie stick attachment.
Americans love guns more than they love themselves (obviously).
Oklahoma is competing with Texas to be the execution capital of America.
Dark metal isn’t angry.
Too many Americans take their Second Amendment “liberty” as a license to kill.
Americans can’t even hold a peaceful rally without firing weapons.
Dealing the instruments of death is big business in America.
Americans are addicted to guns. The NRA is the dealer.
Real men don’t need guns.
Real men can assemble Ikea products without reading the instructions.
