The Ring of Power

From The Verge: But to compare Facebook to the power of the One Ring misses the lesson of Tolkien’s tale entirely: that such power, even when wielded by the greatest of people (Galadriel) or with the best intentions (Gandalf), is unfit for anyone to possess at all. If Facebook is the Ring of Power, by […]

Genocide Recognition

Per Fox: The man acknowledged the outburst was unrelated to the purpose of the event, stating, “No disrespect to you all, I’m glad you guys are getting recognized for your genocide, but this man is a f—–g liar!” Sounds like a Trump voter.

Call in Amash

Brilliant idea. However, Democrats supportive of the idea — a group that includes conservative Blue Dogs as well as liberal members — applaud Amash for his courage standing up to Trump and his own party. While Amash was not part of the House investigative process, he’s a former lawyer known for his strict interpretations of […]

Oath of Office

Can’t wait to try this next time I’m a called for jury duty. Senator Graham has chosen to violate his oath to support and defend the Constitution, his oath to do impartial justice in an impeachment trial, and his duty to represent all the people of his state, not just those who share his political […]

A Gas that Terrorists Breathe

English is a language terrorists use, too. Linday Graham just described WhatsApp as a tool “that terrorists use.” WhatsApp has 1.5 billion active users. You might as well describe oxygen as “a gas that terrorists breathe.” — Julian Sanchez (@normative) December 10, 2019

Richard Who?

It’s…worth asking how this happened. CORRECTION: Earlier on #AMJoy as we were talking about former Navy secretary Richard Spencer we mistakenly showed the wrong image of white supremacist Richard Spencer. We are very, deeply sorry for that mistake. — AM Joy w/Joy Reid (@amjoyshow) December 1, 2019

Trump Campaign Won’t Credential Bloomsbury News

Per CNN: President Trump’s 2020 campaign announced Monday that it will no longer credential Bloomberg News reporters for its events after the outlet said it would not conduct investigations into the Democratic presidential candidates, but would continue to probe the Trump administration. A reasonable reaction. Bloomberg has made some peculiar choices which call into question […]

This Sign

It’s not nice to call people stupid, so I’m really hoping that one of the thousand monkeys they have typing on keyboards in the Republican caucus managed to mash out this sign and a gust of wind from a smart-outlet controller fan blew it up onto this stand. Why? The sign means Schiff is following […]
