NEW: Starbucks is now sending desperate, threatening anti-union texts to workers in Mesa every other day at noon, abusing its emergency line. Today’s was longer than usual and filled with lies about the union. Some workers say it resembles a text from an ex.

Jason Rantz thought this guy was a hero for this and barely 3 months later he's dead from Covid. Sad and senseless.
“This is the last time you’ll hear me in a patrol car and Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.” Washington State Trooper in Yakima, Wash. signs off after 22 years — fired by @GovInslee for being unvaccinated.

So, this is chilling: "Yes, the Harvard-and-Yale-educated DeSantis is on a crusade against the “elites,” because he knows that the populist right flank of Trumpism is theoretically available to him if he runs to the populist right of Trump." Another must-read by @MollyJongFast

It never occurs to Fancy mediocre white guys that perhaps they’re the Beneficiaries of a system set up to enable them to succeed.
Replying to @ashtonpittman
“The irony is that the Supreme Court is at the very time hearing cases about this sort of affirmative racial discrimination while adding someone who is the beneficiary of this sort of quota," Sen. Wicker said of Biden's decision to appoint a Black woman. mississippifreepress.org/202…

Remember that Washington State cop who became a right wing hero and was lionized on Fox when he taped himself telling the gov to “kiss my ass” and resigned instead of getting vaccinated? He just died of Covid.

Republicans have controlled the PA Senate every year for the past 28 years and the PA House every year for the past 11 years. Billions of dollars in road and bridge funding went to the state police instead because that's how Republicans wanted it.
As all of Pennsylvania ponders our structurally deficient bridges, I am reminded of this story I covered in 2019. whyy.org/articles/pa-fuel-ta…

These numbers are so shockingly horrible
More than 3,800 Americans died of Covid, as reported today @NewsNodes, bringing the cumulative US confirmed lost lives ~900,000. Half of these deaths occurred after February 1, 2021, when vaccines were widely available for high-risk individuals

It’s amazing how people who hyped a moral panic about CRT are now trying to paint themselves as some sort of moderate voice between liberals and the book banners they helped empower

This is so incredibly bad. Yikes
