Merrick Garland needs to start making commercials telling MAGA morons that a special election interference task force is being formed to insure that election ratfuckers WILL go to jail for a long time.

If JoeBiden fell asleep in traffic court, it would be news heard round the world. But Trump falls asleep in the first criminal trial of a US President, and it’s from most of the media.

As I said a year ago, it’s not enough for Trump to lose. In order for these Republicans to be bitch-slapped back to governing again, he and they have to be crushed by wide margins. Anything less and the can just gets a swift kick down the road.

The media is slow-walking away from Trump. You can feel it. Because they are starting to realize they he may not win.

Have you heard about these Fox fucks encouraging jurors to lie to get on the jury so they can acquit their orange Jesus?

Court has adjourned in NYC. 7 jurors were seated in just 2 days. (11 more to go). No report on whether they’ve awakened Trump yet.

Sen. Tom Cotton is trying to get attention again. We have to stop assuming media will shame or embarrass these useless shitbags. We need to invent something new.

Imagine a few dozen strategically chosen bridges, shut down, weekly. Coupled with other similar actions, congress would be forced to consider urgent reform measures that would never happen any other way. We’re going to end up there anyway. We should get started.

Sadly, most Americans reject aspirational activism as “too extreme.” Our overlords have spent 150 years building that narrative. How convenient for them,

@lakelady Where were the others?

@lakelady Glad to see it. I’ve been posting about mass disruptions for 10 years. But it has to be applied to even bigger issues urgent to all of us (like the need for urgent legislative reforms). Single issues like Gaza will never get enough popular support for any kind of critical mass. But their goal is more about attention than far reaching systemic change.

@lakelady It’s too polarizing an issue to gain widespread public support. They run the risk of a backlash.

shoq,
@shoq@mastodon.social avatar

@lakelady I mean issues that impact us all collectively. The things we should all be mobilizing over. Especially the big 4, which will change everything else:

  • John Lewis Voting Rights Act 2
  • Campaign Finance Reform
  • Repealing Citizens United
  • Media reform (and breakups).

I can’t win. I finally get the damn boot off my right foot, and the big toe feels fine. But the right-side of my foot now aches when I walk on it, badly, and the incision scar burns when I wear any shoe. Sigh.

The Supreme Court has made horrible decisions in recent years, and it's impossible to top Dobbs for harm caused ... but I’m scared that the decision in Grants Pass v. Johnson and what comes after will break my heart completely 😢

@peterbutler That one is pretty hideous, but limited in scope of impact. I am terrified of them overruling the Chevron Deference. That will change everything all at once. And not in a good way. It’s basically the end of modern liberal government. https://www.americanprogress.org/article/supreme-court-appears-poised-to-overrule-chevron-deference-in-judicial-power-grab/

I’m not against shutting down bridges to call attention to a plethora of crucially important issues not likely to get attention or action any other way. But I am against shutting down a single bridge for a single issue.

Whenever people tell me they really “love” some TV pundit or show host, I try to figure out exactly why. I mean, what exactly makes someone passionate about Katy Tur?

If they dismiss jurors in Trump trials based on their social media comments, there is absolutely no risk of me ever being one of the jurors.

“Trump’s head slowly dropped, eyes closed. It jerked back upward. He adjusts himself. Then, his head droops again. He straightens up, leaning back. His head droops for a third time, he shakes his shoulders. Eyes closed still. His head drops. Finally, he pops his eyes open.”

Two whole weeks of jury selection. It will be amusing to see how cable news producers keep trying to find drama in something that fundamentally dull. I suggest they just focus on Trump’s scowls. They’re always amusing.

I’m stumped. If any of you code ninjas can figure this out for me, I will happily send you a McDonald’s gift card for a meal of your choosing. Using Google App script, a bunch of text extractor solutions (cheerio, regex, HtmlService, etc.) and my limited skills, nothing works.

I suspect this is because it’s all dynamic javascript and meant to only be rendered from openai’s react, or whatever. I hope not, but i lack enough coding skills to know.

This chrome extension saves plain text of both prompts and responses, so obviously it’s doable. ChatGPT just isn’t a good enough coder to figure this out for me :)
