I was going to say, I bet there’s a game where you click recommended until you land on a video that is some kind of abhorrent conspiracy nonsense.

Folks out here replying to you that a vote for Biden doesn’t shift the Overton window left like it isn’t so far extreme to the right that ANY vote left of it – even if CENTER – isn’t significant. All one need do is compare our left and right to the UK’s left and right, and one should conclude that we have to start where the window is for us rather than lofty ideas where people think it should be.

Expecting the window to land squarely in the left without working towards it over time is unrealistic, that is until we push it out of the right’s playing field. Course, people just love letting perfection be the enemy of good.

It is absolutely shortsighted self-righteousness, and it’s like, come on bro; you really gonna vote to end democracy because you’re not getting exactly what you want?? Completely abhorrent flex, but OK…

Glad to have you on the side of democracy!! Hopefully someday, will be able to disagree on policy with each other rather than having to vote simply to remain democratic and free. ;)

Just our court system ruling for fascism, nothing to see here folks.

I mean, I’m no lawyer, but the idea that only the DOJ has standing when gerrymandering has an actual, tangible effect on individual voters seems absurd on its face.

“Fails” to me suggests Elmo tried but did not succeed. I would use language more like “hate speech is deliberately being allowed on Elon’s social dumpster fire”, personally.

Anybody else catch this opinion article The Hill posted the other day? Truly fucking incredible how Republicans will lie right to our faces about what their stances are on abortion.

First it was “states rights”, which was immediately followed by “time for a nationwide ban” after Dobbs. When it actually came time for states rights on abortion, it was immediately followed by “we’re gonna do everything we can to stop this” when they lost on it. Now they want to try to downplay what they really mean by “abortion restrictions” when everyone can plainly see their actions belie their words. They really think we’re fucking dumb, don’t they?

There sure is a lot of shit out there that seems to expose kids to lead. If there were ever a conspiracy that I could believe almost immediately, it would be that hostile governments (or some other entity that benefits from poisoning our youth, I don’t know, I’m not a conspiracy scientist) are finding ways to put lead in all our products as a way to dumb us all down.

What do you mean? Who wouldn’t donate to the great George Santos, Lincoln’s vice president and the inventor of the airbag, potentially saving millions of lives??

This reminds me of my ex, who stated “I HATE Wikipedia” because “it looks dumb” when I mentioned it in passing.

She really earned that “ex” title…

I can’t shake the bad feeling that the timing is going to be a real problem once shutdown time rolls around here in less than 40-ish days. What if we don’t even have a fucking speaker at all by then??

There is the possibility that Dems coordinate a vote with the not-Freedom Caucus GOP to elect the least disagreeable candidate, though…

Acronymesis,
@Acronymesis@lemmy.world avatar

What is the better alternative? What if there isnt a speaker by the time the stop gap measure expires?

I have this same question too, and - with all due respect - it would be nice if someone had a response other than blaming Republicans and just leaving it at that (I mean, it’s absolutely their fault, but it doesn’t answer the real question).

It would be nice to know Dems have a plan after taking this action. I’m fairly certain they do, but best I can do now is guess how it might play out. Not reassuring…

Acronymesis,
@Acronymesis@lemmy.world avatar

Right, it was a quintessential FAFO situation there.

However, what now? We’re still staring down a shutdown very soon. I’d just like to know Hakeem’s got a plan, y’know?

This is so true I didn’t even realize how fucking upside down the whole thing is until reading your comment. It didn’t even occur to me the idea of her resignation over Beetlegate because the idea of her doing so is just outside the realm of reality. It’s just “oh sorry, I let my morals lapse there for a bit, my bad!” and no one bats an eye.

This is fucking crazy! This is from the party of “gotta protect the kids”, just groping and fondling at a family event!

What the fuck.

Noticing a lot of people on Lemmy scoffing at this development, which I suppose is their right. But you know what? I see this as a real win; Trump Org no longer being able to operate in NY is a big fucking deal.

Yes, he’ll likely make up the difference through donations from his rabid base. No, they won’t know about it because the right wing disinfo machine won’t tell them.

So what? It’s a fucking win, nonetheless. It ain’t shooting him and his ill gotten gains into the sun, but it is very well the first of a series of deathblows.

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good, and all that.

Acronymesis,
@Acronymesis@lemmy.world avatar

Hell yeah, cheers to consequences! 🍻

I get it though. I want to see him barred from running for president for insurrecting and in cuffs and a jumpsuit for his myriad crimes about as much as anyone. However, if that means death by 1000 cuts rather than an immediate removal from society, I’ll take it.

Man, if they were any actual fairness/justice in this world, the “canon into the sun” business would be booming!

(HA, booming! Get it???)

Trump and company liable for fraud in New York lawsuit, judge rules (www.cnbc.com)

A judge on Tuesday ruled that Donald Trump and his company are liable for fraud by misstating the true values of multiple real estate properties for years and thus grossly overstating the former president’s net worth by billions of dollars....

Maybe it’s just me, but I found the article a bit confusing trying to figure out who this Yaroslav Hunka character is and his relationship to Zelensky/Ukraine.

He’s a 98-year-old Ukrainian Canadian, who served in the Nazi SS Galizien formation during the Second World War

That’s gonna be a big YIKES from me, dawg… 😬

Acronymesis,
@Acronymesis@lemmy.world avatar

Ah, I see how my comment is worded as though I was potentially trying to tie this guy to Zelensky. I understood they weren’t “related“, but I didn’t understand the Ukrainian context of the old Nazi guy.

Acronymesis,
@Acronymesis@lemmy.world avatar

Oh, I totally got it now, but I appreciate the clarification all the same!

Somewhat off topic, but it really gets my goat that this guy is pulling the “witch hunt” bullshit that the other side so often does:

“For years, forces behind the scenes have repeatedly attempted to silence my voice and dig my political grave. Since this investigation was leaked nearly a year ago, there has been an active smear campaign of anonymous sources and innuendos to create an air of impropriety where none exists,” Menendez said in a statement, adding that prosecutors see him as a political “obstacle.”

Motherfucker, you had envelopes full of cash stuffed in your pockets that had the DNA of the man who’s suspected of bribing you on them. For fuck’s sake.

Anyway, great to see some on team Dem call for his resignation. That said, I’m keeping my eyes peeled for any that that decide to circle the wagons.
