The guy is getting legal advice?

Huh?

How dare that man seek legal advice about being illegally denied access to the building and emotional trauma for his kids!

The only person to have worked on 3 impeachment probes says that Trump's conduct has been "more serious" than Nixon's was.

The GOP is intent on making a mockery of the hearings, trying to distract America any way they can.

Not quite as bad as the Ohio law that would require replanting an ectopic pregnancy in the womb (which is impossible), but still pretty awful and stupid.

Meanwhile, in Africa, where the climate crisis that some of you deny exists and/or just deny it requires major efforts to address:

Unprecedented rainfall kills hundreds in Central Africa with nearly one million displaced and thousands of hectares flooded: Rainfall 300% above average

Not just Central Africa, either.

An interesting take on how to fix the internet.

You posted several interesting pieces today.   This one drew my eye, because I was talking with a friend the other day about Jeremy Corbyn's plan to decommodify the internet in the UK.  I could see this working like public power does in Nebraska,  with a board of commissioners that is elected and therefore answerable to the people.  When I lived there (NE, not UK), they had among the lowest electric rates in the country and very reliable service.   

Yes, not everything in life should be dependent on the whims of a market.

Bambi's rant on millennials v boomers has to be one of the funniest I've seen here.   Like the Archie Bunker of Oz.

Read:  "I DO NOT LIKE HIM because he is an evil bastard traitor who has been looting and sabotaging the nation while hardly pretending to even understand his job. He is a dangerous imposter."

FIFY.

Only white folks who are traumatized and discriminated against should consider legal options?

Got it.
