The is a fatally dysfunctional party that's incapable of governing. At this point, push to remove the Speaker as soon as he does something, anything, that they don't like. They are unable to provide stable leadership, and the result is chaos, and -funded paychecks for Representatives who accomplish nothing for the American people. Voting to put them in control is an act of insanity.

This desperation is easily seen in every public appearance, as he stammers his way through epicly absurd nonsense. It would be sad if he wasn't such an unlikeable tool. No wonder has spent the past 45 years trying to forget that his son exists.

The amendment that just proposed to sabotage the bill is something that is such a nuanced narrative that it could have only come directly from her Russian handlers.

The notion that are being persecuted in Ukraine is insane BUT it’s being pushed by both (who was promised a piece of Ukraine by ) and Russian disinfo machine. For an American to suggest this really confirms she is being handled.

I don't know who came up with "", but the idea that someone can break into a property that isn't theirs, change the locks, and declare that they're the new owners is insane, and lawmakers should move swiftly to fix the law. These thieving scumbags are destroying people's homes and lives, and they need to be held accountable.

Has anyone ever had a banana that wasn't made by Chiquita? 🤔🍌

@randahl I wonder if it's just a difference in labeling requirements. Virtually all our fruit in the US comes with little stickers that indicate the brand. Is it possible that in Denmark they just don't the stickers?

@andy It's not uncommon to find apple, pear, peach, and orange trees in people's yards depending on the region, but I don't think the climate supports banana trees in the US. The land my neighborhood was built on used to be an apple and pear orchard, so we had random fruit trees all over. I would have loved to have a banana tree!

Now, Iran has an active #nuclear weapons program, and we're all on the brink of annihilation. How can anyone seriously consider voting to put him back in the #WhiteHouse?

@Gillybean We had a good deal with Iran that was effectively preventing them from enriching uranium, and running a nuclear weapons program. It was working. Trump threw it out the window because everything anyone else does is the worst thing in the world, while everything he does is the embodiment of perfection. And as soon as he trashed the deal, Iran immediately started enriching uranium, and restarted their nuclear weapons program.

Bad news out of the ... Despite international pleas for restraint following 's largely symbolic strike on , just ordered a on Iran. This escalation can only result in more conflict and death. At this point, I think the US has to seriously reconsider its support for Israel's far-right government.

@fluffykittycat Israel isn't the problem. It's Netanyahu and his Likud party who are to blame. Israel is a country that has been captured by a violent, far-right party that consistently escalates conflicts rather than deal strategically with its adversaries. They basically believe they can shoot their way to peace, which is an absurd notion. Maybe US aid should be contingent on Netanyahu stepping down, and new elections being held. A leadership change is needed.

Rikers Island is crowded, but they have enough room to house Donald Trump and his Secret Service entourage until he stops defying his gag order.

@HamonWry Rikers is an awful jail. I spent a weekend there once, and it was a miserable experience. But I'm sure Trump wouldn't get the real Rikers experience. They'd stash him in some isolated unit away from all the other inmates. It would basically be like staying in a really shitty motel room.

@jonburr This tit-for-tat bullshit from both Israel and Iran has to stop, and it accomplishes nothing to harp on who did what to whom first. While you can say Israel struck Iran first, just go back a few years and you'll find circumstances that justify the opposite claim. It really doesn't matter who fired the first shot, or who can find an incident that preceded the others. The past is behind us and it isn't coming back, so the only productive move is to make better choices in the future.

If you feel the need to carry a handgun, as an ER doc who has seen too many shot up legs (and as a guy who has from time to time carried), some friendly advice:

  1. Your handgun should ALWAYS have a safety, preferably a thumb safety. Heavy trigger pulls and grip safeties won’t save you.
  2. Use a holster that covers the trigger guard.
  3. Unload your firearm as soon as you don’t anticipate any need for it.

Every year I see people shoot themselves, and kids routinely kill people with found guns.

slcw,
@slcw@newsie.social avatar

@mcnado They also shouldn't walk around with it charged. Keep it holstered, keep it loaded, but don't put a round in the chamber until the situation calls for it. You can't accidentally shoot yourself or someone else if the chamber is empty.
