Beware of attempts to smear the ICC prosecution by claiming that ICC has "equated Israel & Hamas."

ICC has done no such thing. That's not how law works. The law works by comparing a person's behavior with what the law says is legal & illegal. That's what's happened here. Period.

@QasimRashid

I saw #POTUS saying the #ICC should butt out bc what's going on in #Gaza & #Rafah isn't #genocide

But did the ICC even make that charge? Or is JB doing a 'Look Over There' thing AND saying any #WarCrimes short of genocide are ok?

if I were biden, I’d whip every single willing rep and senator into a full action plan to bring integrity to the supreme court, starting with the demand that judges whose households have documented partisan or ethics issues involving politicians must be recused from all decisions involving those leaders

The elite have kept the world from progressing to hold on to their wealth. They’ve kept us all apart with their propaganda and gaslighting and stemmed the type of cooperative creativity that could have solved many of our problems a long time ago.

AND they've changed the definition of 'elite' to mean Educated instead of Rich

Wondering if wealth inequality is out of control?

Well, Jeff Bezos made over $7.9 million an hour last year.

In just 13 minutes, he made the equivalent of what a typical person earns in a lifetime.

Don't tell me that the rich can't afford a wealth tax.

siblings, I seek counsel from the crowd mind

My union (which I won't identify) has bargained away our workers' right to strike & right to speak to media

They fund 1 of the 2 rep slots posted on the local's website, since forever. That rep just burned out & split like the last one

Mgmt uses temps to avoid hiring ft staff w benefits, but that's become a norm nationwide

Many of my co-workers want different representation but the process is hella steep & risky on purpose

Jewish students participating in pro-Palestine protests on their campuses would have valuable things to say about the alleged "rising antisemitism" at their schools. But the media is ignoring them.

“No Mr Netanyahu, it is not antisemitic or pro-Hamas to point out that, in a little over six months, your extremist government has killed over 34,000 Palestinians and wounded more than 78,000, 70% of whom are women and children"

Don’t Blame the Patient | Science-Based Medicine

When patients are diagnosed with cancer, or a terminal illness of any kind, they report that there are a couple of near universal reactions by the people around them. First, everyone has advice for them. Everyone thinks they know what caused their illness and what will cure it. The floodgates of free advice and misinformation open.

Does your public library use Overdrive/Libby for ebooks or audiobooks? ⚠️

In the US and Canada, the answer is probably yes. And you should speak to your library staff and commission about it.

Libby is now owned by a private equity firm & making sketchy changes: https://buttondown.email/ninelives/archive/the-coming-enshittification-of-public-libraries/

The latest development is that their overbroad privacy policy allows them to sell your borrowing history to advertisers: https://infosec.exchange/@longobord/112243098104196246

Don't beat yourself up too much. Considering the billion$ $pent on focus group marketing, autonomic response is scientifically guaranteed 🤤

I'm fortunate - for me, commercials trigger a form of Tourette's syndrome
