@GottaLaff I'm waiting for this to be held unconstitutional by the Alabama Supreme Court because embryos are people.

I really hate the news coverage of the #Republican primary:

"Easy primary win" - For a former president to only win within his party by a margin of 60-40, that's embarrassingly close.

Imagine how much closer it might get as #Trump's legal problems grow.

Six students have measles in an outbreak at a Florida elementary school.

How did Florida's health department respond?

Their Surgeon General sent out a letter that supports parents sending unvaccinated children to school during the outbreak and doesn't recommend vaccination.

@5klp471 @GottaLaff Trump has a lot of incentive to put up the bond money because otherwise he can't even appeal. I wonder if Russian oligarchs will have his back on this one.

Eliminating billionaires would be the single best thing we could do for the continued survival of life on earth. This would impact less than 3000 people and would LITERALLY save the lives of BILLIONS of people. This could be accomplished by taxation alone. Guillotines nor wood chippers need not be involved. It will never be considered.

When I talk to people outside the US, they're rarely aware of how bad it's gotten. In part because state-level authoritarianism is rarely reported in int'l media.

E.g. there's now a proposal to jail teachers/librarians who possess 'banned books' !!!

When faced w/well-meaning legislation to scan for 'harmful content,' undermine e2ee in the name of child safety etc., we are derelict/naive if we don't contend with the reality of who will use theses laws, how.
