Urgent reminder: the economy is a wholly owned subsidiary of the environment. Fixating on short term growth while the parent company teeters on the brink of collapse is a myopic as it is negligent.

If you still have doubts about where this is headed if Republicans take over, then I urge you to look at this.

A big part of the Trump damage will be empowering lunatics to run for office and creating an environment where a lot of smart, experienced people want nothing to do with public office. So when I say run for something and vote, this is what I'm talking about.

If you enjoyed "Liz Cheney is the only sane Republican in Wyoming", let me now present “Seriously, what the living fuck, Arizona?"

You better get used to the idea that every miscarriage from today forward will HAVE to be investigated for possible negligent homicide, manslaughter, 3rd degree murder, whatever your state calls it

Women are going to end up in prison for miscarriages. That's where this is going.

"My vote to remain a no isn’t based on any evidence, it’s not based on any facts, it’s only based on my gut feeling and my own intuition, and that’s all I need,"

Please help your favourite open source project in any way you can.

Write or fix documentation, fix code, open issues - do whatever you can to assist. Get in touch with the developers and ask what they need.

In all likelihood, the project is being maintained by a tiny group of people who cannot bear the burden alone. And once they burn out, so does your favourite project.

Get involved!

When Judge Ketani Brown Jackson was representing a Guantanamo detainee, she was following the dictates of her job as a D.C. public defender and was also following the instructions in the U.S. Constitution which says a prisoner "has to have the assistance of counsel for his defense". Why do the Republicans have trouble understanding this? Maybe because they actually don't believe in following the laws and upholding the U.S. Constitution?

The job of public defenders is an honorable occupation in service of the constitutional guarantee of legal counsel. Representation of Guantanamo detainees requires a substantially higher level of skill, determination, and courage. I am even more willing to see her confirmed to the Supreme Court because of her service as a public defender.

I'm a old guy who went to college recently. I took CS but the college also had journalism.

I didn't know any journalism students well, but I met a few. None of them took journalism to become shills for the government. They're idealists who want to break the big story. Anyone can review the course material and see there's no "shilling for the government" topic.

I'll believe journalists over pundits or randos drawing attention to themselves by telling me that journalists are liars.

I came up with the domain name tougshire.com. Tougshire is an anagram for righteous. My wife says it sounds stupid and I shouldn't use it. It reminds her of The Hobit, which was not my intent. Opinions?

To the anti-mandate folks in my timeline, if you believed that a highly contagious and deadly or disabling disease was threatening a nation's population, would you believe that the nation has the right to mandate vaccines or do you believe that no matter what the threat, no government has that right?

re typos - I found two similar ones:

"every now and the I witness"

and

"While the provide the forking functionality"
