  1. Yeah, it was terrible when I worked a union job. I paid like $20/month and got healthcare benefits so generous I thought I was back in the 1990's. I have to wonder at workers outraged about unions. Why are they even inconveniencing the great job creators by taking a paycheck?
  2. Kagan repeats warning that Supreme Court is damaging its legitimacy The justice's pointed comments follow Chief Justice John Roberts' recent lament that unpopular decisions shouldn't undercut the court. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/09/14/kagan-supreme-court-legitimacy-00056766
  3. What to know about Raymond Dearie, the judge who could serve as Mar-a-Lago search special master https://us.cnn.com/2022/09/12/politics/who-is-raymond-dearie-special-master-candidate-trump-doj/index.html
  4. Federal Reserve The Fed should pause interest rate rises as US inflation slows Joseph Stiglitz and Dean Baker It would be irresponsible to create much higher unemployment – and the US economy could be pushed into recession https://www.theguardian.com/business/2022/sep/12/the-fed-interest-rate-rises-us-inflation-unemployment-recession
  5. You would think, but he wears this this to job interviews. Along with the hillbilly beard. It makes him a fearsome predator of the capitalist battlefields.
  6. 5 eps in. Starting on 6 as well. Cobra Kai remains one of the best shows on television. I realized this after finishing 5. It's like the best Karate Kid fanfiction I did not know I needed. Really glad that Miguel and Johnny are now family. 2 of my favorite characters. (And I really hated John Lawrence in the 1980's when I watched him as a little kid) Chozen/John Lawrence buddy cop is just about perfect. I could watch a whole show based on this alone.
  7. Former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller subpoenaed by Justice Department https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/10/politics/miller-save-america-pac-federal-grand-jury-january-6/index.html
  8. Republicans look to restrict ballot measures following a string of progressive wins The state efforts are a direct threat to abortion-rights advocates and other liberal groups’ efforts to bypass governors and legislatures and take issues directly to voters. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/09/10/the-lefts-best-chance-for-restoring-abortion-rights-in-red-states-is-in-jeopardy-00055901
  9. Republicans to Trump: Pony up more cash in battle for Senate The former president is sitting on $99 million — money Mitch McConnell wants spent on Trump-backed GOP hopefuls who are lagging in the money chase. https://www.politico.com/
  10. The whole thing doesn't look very thought out. His lawyers could have made an agreement to return documents, a real agreement. Instead the plan seems to be to spit in the eye of the DOJ at every step. And the special master thing is a part of that. It's very Trumpian, but it's a pretty poor legal plan to delay and piss off the DOJ instead of seeking immunity. Especially when you consider how lenient the DOJ is on elites in these types of cases.
  11. Details On Foreign Government's Nuclear Secrets Reportedly Found In Mar-A-Lago Search Such information is so classified only the president and some members of the Cabinet or high-ranking officials know about them. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-mar-a-lago-classified-nuclear_n_6317e18ae4b027aa40558295
  12. Newly obtained surveillance video shows fake Trump elector escorted operatives into Georgia county's elections office before voting machine breach https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/06/politics/surveillance-video-voting-machine-breach-coffee-county-georgia/index.html
  13. And only Trump and his servants can be trusted with properly storing them. Because they are excellent at that.
  14. So, a Trump judge has inserted herself into the middle of the investigation. Let us hope she enjoys the limelight. It must be amazing to be Trump. Since at least his school days there is constantly minions leaping out to save him from the latest bad behavior. It really is like being King Joffrey.
  15. FBI materials seized from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home included 90 empty folders Revelation raises possibility that some of government’s most highly sensitive documents may still be unaccounted for https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/sep/02/trump-fbi-search-materials-list-fbi-latest
  16. It sounds like rather than quit voting he needs to become a proponent for ranked-choice voting.
  17. So, this means Megan Thee Stallion has superpowers, right?
  18. Gotham Knights sounds awesome and I'll probably buy it. But I really am not happy that it includes enemies scaling to your level. I don't know why developers keep pushing this, but I find it annoying.
  19. Trump weighs delaying 2024 decision as political and legal troubles grow https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/31/politics/trump-delaying-2024-decision/index.html
  20. Billions in ‘dark money’ is influencing US politics. We need disclosure law https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/aug/29/billions-in-dark-money-is-influencing-us-politics-we-need-disclosure-laws
  21. Biden's student loan relief plan will mainly help working and middle class borrowers, report finds https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/26/politics/biden-student-loans-middle-class-penn-wharton-budget-model/index.html
  22. Yep, Jones is trying to pull an OJ. And no not that kind of OJ. Sandy Hook families ask judge to order Alex Jones to relinquish control of his company, alleging he transferred millions to himself and family https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/26/media/alex-jones-free-speech-systems-bankruptcy/index.html
  23. Yeah, so what's in there if anything? Like DMC I see a lot of black redactions.
  24. These southern conservative Christians are quite the players...but mainly at the junior highs it appears. I wonder if he goes mall cruising with Roy Moore?
  25. And your solution and Tywin's is to turn to the U.S. Congress. The same body notorious for not passing things, most especially economically progressive things. And the same ones that made student loans not dischargeable in bankruptcy. They were key in creating the problem. And they chose purposely not to address the problem. Biden, too didn't want to act at first. And he said Congress should address this. It's a great excuse not to act at all to kick it to these jokers in the Senate. Do you really trust Sinema to do what's right? More like she will give a thumbs down.
