Really. And bravo.

The only thing I can add is a lot of people talk about the first amendment without understanding what it says, and means.

Social media companies like Twitter and Facebook are not government entities, for example. And we all signed away our rights to "yell 'fire' in a crowded theater" the second we signed up, and agreed to abide by their interpretation of what constituted that rather than ours.

Thank you, democracy.


I think you also sign away your rights to yell fire in a crowded theatre when you buy a ticket to go to the theatre. Every business reserves the right to serve customers who are causing a problem to the business or to other customers. Twitter and facebook are no different to that.
There may be a consistency problem, of course. But bars and restaurants are also not consistent about why they throw people out.

Meanwhile I heard some cracking comments from a judge releasing a Capitol rioter on bail where he makes the point that everything that has happened to her in the arrest and indictment procedure, including the reading of rights, the appointment of a public defender and being released on bail, are all examples of the state and the various actors - the policemen, the lawyers and so on - recognising and complying with the very Constitution which she was purporting to subvert.

Biden spotted maskless on federal property after mandating masks there

Part of the executive order states, "...on-duty or on-site Federal employees, on-site Federal contractors, and other individuals in Federal buildings and on Federal lands should all wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures, as provided in CDC guidelines."

Well that's just dandy, isn't it. I mean the hypocrisy is off the charts.

Conservative warn culture, political wars will worsen

This seems about right.
The national politicians can't repudiate Trump because no one is willing to lose an election for principle. Nationally, they are an electoral minority with little hope for growth. Darker days ahead, alas.

NEWSFLASH: Senate Republicans believe mean tweets are disqualifying for someone to hold office in the executive branch of government.

There's also accusations flying from both sides about the sexism inherent in Tanden's tweets being acceptable coming from a man (probably true) and the far left accusing her of being anti-progressive (some of the tweets being directed at Bernie Sanders). Don't know enough about that to judge, but my initial impression is that it's more of the usual Dems shooting themselves in the foot by infighting.

Holy shit. No fucking wonder. This is an actual US senator, a Biden Democrat, voting down a raise in the minimum wage.

Funny, had she voted in favor of the wage hike - with a thumbs up and a curtsy - I wouldn't mind so much, or at all, even.
