They are there for the cruelty, as long as they aren’t the ones on the receiving end.

If only the GOP could feel shame for what you’ve done to politicize medical treatment. Mandates wouldn’t be needed if people would get vaccinated to support their community. You’re too busy being selfish to realize the one that should be hanging his head in shame is you.

The general pattern we saw in the cases we studied was that violence was intended to regulate social relationships and sustain a moral order. The perpetrators are in control of their actions—they know they are hurting fellow human beings, & that is exactly what they intend to do.
“…[mental health checks] will not significantly decrease gun violence because most gun violence is not committed by people with mental health problems. Rather, it is committed by people who feel they are morally right in committing that act.” qz.com/566579/most-violence-…

Why aren’t they staying at home and mainlining ivermectin and guzzling their own piss? The ones that really get me are when they file lawsuits to force hospital to treat them with ivermectin.

I’m sure I could learn a few things from your process. If you could cover the how without naming names, it would be beneficial to many!

A friend of mine is a former health inspector. Having hosted them for BBQ, yeah, it’s like that.

We might make progress if we force members of congress to have the same insurance as the least insurance of their constituents.

THIS. It's easy to notice one or two of the moving parts and miss the overall operation and goal.
Replying to @AshaRangappa_
The point is that there are a lot of moving parts and evidence surfacing in a lot of different areas but they are all connected to one overarching goal: Keep Trump in power by subverting the counting of the electoral votes and preventing the transfer of power to Biden /END

I suspect a part of the goal was to void the electoral votes and push this to a decision in congress where each state gets one vote. With GOP controlling majority of the state votes, Trump would be put in power.

As if we didn’t have enough challenge with trust and accurate info related to Covid, there are fake testing sites producing no results. Harder and harder to distinguish scam from real and helpful services. How does a society survive when its unclear what can be trusted?
Here's a thing that's been puzzling me: about 10 days ago, we started to see "Free PCR Test" sidewalk tents all over LA. Some had long lines, some didn't. While sidewalk testing may seem sus, there were some reassuring factors:

If you’d stop lying, spreading propaganda, and violating their terms of service you wouldn’t have a problem. Instead you sponsor government interference in companies to force them to spread your lies. You are the one that is outrageous.

Think what’s happening today couldn’t be foreseen? That we’re in completely uncharted waters? No way anyone could have predicted events of the last couple years? This scenario was gamed out in 2010. Games work. We need to pay attention to what we can learn from them.
In 2010, I designed a game for the World Bank set in the year 2020, in which the world faced a respiratory pandemic started in China, a massive disinformation and conspiracy theory campaign on social media by a group called Citizen X, and historic wildfires on US West Coast. 1/#

Non medical twitter is more is more likely to make your illness worsen these days. Hope it’s not serious and passes quickly.

The Dem playbook. Reaching across the aisle doesn’t work with a party that vows to undermine progress.
Every time Dems fail, somebody says "oh, if only we knew then what we know now, we might have done things differently." But the reality it that Dems *never* do things differently. We always have the same playbook. And we always fail in exactly the same way.

Quorum in the Senate requires at least 51 members present. Without quorum, they can take no action.

Even with google, signing up for an appointment online is complex! I think it was on the order of 10 pages of this form, that form, verification, vax history input… It’s not a trivial thing and for someone that has little online experience, easily overwhelming.

First, I can’t ever see her winning the Dem ticket. But in the rarified possibility that she does… and she’s running against Trump… maybe I’m voting Canada?

The pandemics of the future thank you for your support. If you see empty shelves, it’s because someone in the supply chain is not there to do their job. They aren’t there to drive the truck, make the part, pick the food. Because they are sick. And they may still lose the job.

Good thread on crypto tech v. Web3.
This is a fair question highlighting the divide between infra/cryptography tech folks and cryptocurrency folks. IMO it’s religious zeal. We routinely kill our darlings in cryptography/infra. Merely questioning blockchains (or web3 at all) invites personal attack 🧵
