  1. 6 HOURS AGO Kyrsten Sinema is seeking a couple of changes to Democrats' party-line bill. She wants to nix the carried interest provision and add drought funding. The Arizona Democrat still hasn't said whether she would vote for the tax, climate and health care deal. https://www.politico.com/minutes/congress/08-3-2022/sinemas-ask/
  2. What's really stunning is not that he's acting out as Saul, but how stupid it was. That isn't really like him. He hired a 2nd-story man to do the burglary precisely so that he doesn't get caught no matter what happens. But the guy with the dog backs out and now he's volunteered himself? And not only that but the target has been out hours and may wake up. So he's beyond acting out and is spiraling. The Kim thing fits. But also the guy making a moral stand might have triggered him due to his father. There's an old episode where he saw his father as a weakling. The situation is somewhat like when Walter White insisted on Lydia's plan to use the Nazis to kill Mike's guys in prison. Although that plan wasn't dumb, just evil. But the insistence on the rob the cancer guy plan going forward at all costs.
  3. US kills al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in drone strike in Afghanistan https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/01/politics/joe-biden-counter-terrorism/index.html
  4. Utter BS. They've had repeat bias during this crisis against medium to late 40's people. I mean I was trying to get my first shot and they gave my 22-year old nephew it a week before me. I was furious.
  5. It wasn't a nursing home, but some creditors did contact me when my parents both died. I guess their mindset is if you are stupid enough to pay it you deserve it. I was not stupid enough to pay.
  6. Stephen Colbert: ‘Manchin was visited by the ghost of climate future’ Late-night hosts discuss Joe Manchin’s reversal on the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes $369bn to cut emissions https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2022/jul/29/stephen-colbert-joe-manchin-climate-bill
  7. Manchin says he and Schumer have a deal that includes energy, taxes The apparent deal breaks a deadlock. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/07/27/manchin-schumer-senate-deal-energy-taxes-00048325
  8. For quite a while there I thought Saul's plan was to slowly murder the security guard using Cinnabon. It did finally come together. I think the point was the guy can't rat on him as he has several crimes over his head he can give to the authorities. Seems crazy to burn an entire episode on this though and this late in the game. Kind of like the tunnel building scenes and some of the other Mike stuff. I appreciate the attention to detail, but I don't think we needed to go through a whole ep with this.
  9. Obamacare back in court as Texans challenge coverage for STDs and HIV care The GOP’s decade-plus war against the health law continues with lawsuit over coverage requirement for testing, vaccines and PrEP. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/07/26/texas-obamacare-std-hiv-00047724
  10. Joe Manchin has tested positive for Covid. The crucial centrist's absence will cause some Democratic anxiety as the Senate races toward its August recess. Manchin says he has "mild symptoms," the same way President Joe Biden has characterized his condition with the virus. https://www.politico.com/minutes/congress/07-25-2022/manchin-has-covid/ What happened: Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), the crucial 50th vote on Democratic priorities in the upper chamber, won't be in the Senate this week after disclosing a positive Covid test early Monday morning.
  11. Murdoch's New York Post dumps Trump, calling him "unworthy to be chief executive again" https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/23/media/murdoch-trump-jan-6-new-york-post-wall-street-journal/index.html
  12. How do you get around players abusing rest mechanics to heal up and get spells/etc then?
  13. The Walking Dead Spin-Off Starring Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes and Danai Gurira's Michonne Announced for 2023 The journey and love story of Rick and Michonne will live on. https://www.ign.com/articles/the-walking-dead-spin-off-starring-andrew-lincolns-rick-grimes-and-danai-guriras-michonne-announced-for-2023
  14. One wonders if he'll have the white nationalist support in prison. Newsom signs California gun bill modeled after Texas abortion law https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/22/politics/california-newsom-gun-bill-texas-abortion-law/index.html
  15. Panama Papers whistleblower speaks out: ‘Politicians must act – now’ In first public comments since 2016, leaker discusses their life in hiding and leaders’ failure to clamp down on tax havens https://www.theguardian.com/news/2022/jul/22/panama-papers-whistleblower-speaks-out-politicians-must-act-now
  16. They were trying to be speedy. Unlike the Uvalde police who need 8 squires each to get on their body armor before doing battle.
  17. Similar happening with abortion. I wonder if they are physically restraining Biden back there. Like Trump with the nuke button, but with executive actions.
  18. America's CEOs made 324 times more than you last year https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/19/business/nightcap-ceo-pay-inequality-twitter-musk/index.html
  19. Edited to add, I read that as you referring to the toys. I meant to say the toys were window dressing. Same thing applies though it was all part of a manipulation against WW. If it wasn't then maybe we'll see actual kids this season. I doubt it though. I believe that was window dressing. It was right when Gus gave the "A father provides" speech to Walter White. I thought the same thing when I was watching though. Oh, Gus has kids. It was all for the self-serving benefit of making Walter White want to cook meth. The only partner I think ever seen was the dead man Max.
  20. Opinion | The Supreme Court is Now Operating Outside of American Public Opinion Our research shows the Court took a sharp swerve two years ago — and its decisions now closely mirror the views of the average Republican, not the average American. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2022/07/19/supreme-court-republican-views-analysis-public-opinion-00046445
  21. Definitely true in the U.S. It's recently become official that we will do nothing on climate change for the next few decades. The only question is if the hard right will now go after clean air laws. I'll correct that. With the exception of private companies. And maybe a few state governments. I'm sure our ExxonMobil overlords will do a fantastic job.
  22. Amazing ep. Not what I was expecting.
  23. Murkowski helps block a bill to protect abortion rights, drawing scorn from Democrats https://alaskapublic.org/2022/05/11/murkowski-helps-block-a-bill-to-protect-abortion-rights-drawing-scorn-from-democrats/
  24. Atlanta-area DA tells Georgia GOP chair he could be indicted in election probe https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/15/politics/georgia-gop-chair-election-probe-indictment-da/index.html
