Yes! The Middle was one of the best shows you may not have seen. It ran for 8 seasons. It’s brilliantly written and the entire thing is on Prime Video right now. Watch it. It is a fantastic piece of television comedy.

@flexghost Trust me. Watch it and it will be like an old friend. Such a brilliant and hilarious show.

Archive link to not give Fox News any traffic -- but this has to be the goofiest news piece I have read in a while.

Headline: "Warning for parents after Florida mom finds AirTag in son's sneaker”

Summary of article: Mom freaks out when she finds an AirTag in her kid's sneaker, assumes bodysnatchers or whatever, but nah he just switched sneakers with some other kid in a bouncy castle like a month prior.

The GOP spent five decades trying to create the Supreme Court into what is there today and still needed the tyranny of the minority of the Electoral College twice to get what they wanted. Why some people think one Presidential election can completely undo that, rather than preparing for a generational struggle that could be just as long and do just as much to get the Court—with Justices who hold life tenure—back to some level of sanity is absolutely beyond my understanding.

We really need to do a much better job teaching civics in this country.

@quoidian

And the fancy Santa outfits. But if we can’t get people to recognize the importance of voting every cycle to retain majorities, 2/3 of both houses and 3/4 of the states isn’t a realistic option either.

Bam,
@Bam@sfba.social avatar

@quoidian Article III refers to “one Supreme Court.” The number of justices is determined by law. Stated another way, Congress can change the number (both houses and presentment, ie, not vetoed by the President).

$153 billion

That’s the number.

President Biden has cancelled $153 billion in student debt for over 4 million borrowers in spite of a GOP Supreme Court and congress trying to hurt Americans along the way

This is a huge win

It’s between a sexual predator with 91 criminal charges or one of the most effective presidents of the modern era

And for some reason it’s a close race.

Bam,
@Bam@sfba.social avatar

@flexghost @babyhuey78 I’ve blocked the twat, but worth noting that these numbers are the result of three separate programs, one of which Biden completely turned around after Trump and Devos intentionally mismanaged it (with over 95% of applications being rejected often for reasons divorced from the fault of the public servant), the PSLF program that was enacted by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by George W. Bush.

While forgiveness generally has economic benefit, that program specifically encourages highly skilled workers to take lower paying government and public interest careers and pay what they are able for 10 years, with the government forgiving the rest. Taxpayers get a huge boon having these highly skilled people do the public’s work, chasing public interest rather than personal profit. The Biden Administration deserves huge props, even if they were the only thing they did.

👀 “Corcoran’s quiet exit from #Trump’s orbit could pose a significant issue for the former president, with the potential for prosecutors to call him as a key witness if the case goes to trial. He also was one of the last attorneys on Trump’s defense team to have handled his federal investigations from the beginning, as his #legal peril skyrocketed.”

I'm trying to figure out what need my near addiction to doom scrolling is trying to fill. It's like screaming into the void, I guess, except occasionally someone replies. I try to curate interesting articles on science or language or economics and on weekdays post a handful of those. But they get little attention.

When it comes to my home feed it's mostly political stuff about how we're all screwed, or some outrageous shit some cop or govt official or right wing nutjob is saying or doing.

Everyone who wants to help either knows already or is already active on the issue of the moment. Everyone who doesn't want to know or can't take it anymore is just going to scroll by, mute, or block. Every hate filled, misogynistic bigot deluded into believing in their own camp's superiority or convinced their own brand of fairy tales are the only real truth (regardless of all evidence to the contrary) are not going to change due to anything I say or share. They're just going to spit more hate.

@shekinahcancook Sadly, coarse, emotional, oversimplified posts are far more contagious than anything else. But thank you for giving my feed a break from those. ❤️

The Washington Post learned about the 'plan' that Trump has/had to end the war within 24 hours, based on anonymous sources familiar with the matter. Trump’s plan reportedly involved pushing Ukraine to cede Crimea and Donbas to Russia.

From a reliable Israeli source...

"For the first time since the beginning of the ground maneuver - all the maneuvering IDF forces left the Gaza Strip.
The forces that remain in the Strip secure near the fence area at several points, and secure the axis that prevents passage back to the north of the Strip.
I believe that we are preparing for a ground maneuver into Rafah."

“Who knows what the next step will be. All that is known is the unknown!'

I really hope Hamas thinks what you seem to because to me, this means that 1) they see a hostage deal as impossible since that position was primarily to extract Hamas concessions at this point 2) they’re opening up a civilian pathway to allow civilians to move from Rafah to Khan Yunis, and 3) they force of mobile troops will be moved out to go in at the Philadelphi corridor for the Rafah invasion. It sure would be nice if Hamas came out of its hidey holes for that, instead of continuing to use their human shields.
