Open Thread | Some Different Odds and Ends

No real theme to this post. Just things of interest.

First, going back to Tulsa.
The NYTimes did a great story with interactive graphics, that take you into Tulsa, and you find out, business after business, that was destroyed.

 


 


She is one of the good guys. So glad that she is finally at DOJ.👏👏

And, our President. I live for this level of petty. That he did it with a smile on his face 😂😂😂😂

    Garry Kasparov @Kasparov63:
    The sooner people admit that the GOP is an anti-democracy party that exists only for power, the sooner necessary actions can be taken. Dragging out that admission has already lost valuable time.

    Garry Kasparov @Kasparov63:
    The Republicans aren’t the ones denying reality. They admit they cannot win elections fairly. They admit the Jan 6 insurrection reflects their members and their base. They are acting accordingly to seize and hold power. Denying that is the delusion.

    Garry Kasparov @Kasparov63:
    A disbelieving opposition is the autocrats’ greatest ally in the early stages. Biden and the Democrats risk refusing to acknowledge reality until they no longer have the power do do much about it.

      I wish your family well, senator. And I am also deeply disappointed that you couldn’t wait until after the vote this morning before flying back to Seattle. May whatever it is you are rushing home to attend to resolve itself pertaining to your family’s personal matter.

      Saint Expedite @saintexp Replying to @PattyMurray:
      You should have been present for the vote Senator. (Odd that your personal family matter required you to leave D.C. on the Friday before the long Memorial Day holiday.)

      Alex Merz @Merz Replying to @saintexp:
      Murray has been consistently solid on this stuff, so I am inclined to give benefit of doubt.

      Jo @JoJoFromJerz:
      Democrats have the House, the Senate and the White House. Yet somehow despite all of that, we’re still here.

      Marty @Marteliz21 Replying to @JoJoFromJerz:
      It’s so frustrating. They break all the rules and do whatever the hell they want, and Dems reach across the aisle and try to find bipartisan agreement every time. There is none. Not anymore. I wish Dems would get aggressive while they still can. If we lose the House, we are done.

      Untitled1982 @beardedone1982:
      They are done for — the Dems are playing by the rules while the GOP breaks them and when they take the House next year the Dems will never end up winning the Presidency as they’ll never certify an election again – but hey at least the Dems tried to be bipartisan

      The only world where 54-35 is a losing hand. ‘Merica.

      Nobody special @NobodySpecial_3:
      The 3/5 requirement should at least be out of the folks that show up for the vote. 11 Senators abstained. 54/89 meets the 3/5 threshold.

      Steve Hollywood @ShollywoodS:
      They’d have shown up if that rule existed.

      Nobody special @NobodySpecial_3:
      Good. At least get them on record as to where they stand instead of standing on the sidelines and refusing to participate. That is their fkng job. That’s what they were sent there to do. If they don’t want to do it, get the hell out of the way and let someone else.

    Up this morning, ordering my groceries and other stuff to be delivered because, even though I am fully vaccinated, I am not going out in these COVID streets if I don’t have to. Going to enjoy my weekend in the peace of my own home.
    You can’t trust the lying unvaccinated 😡😡
    Stay safe out there.
    Protect yourself.
