Barr's just trying to keep up with the pace set by President Dipshit.

That was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.  Whoever thinks he's a religious man is an idiot.

fun fact: clergy from the church he posed in front of were among the people he tear gassed on his way there.

edit: i misread, the clergy that got gassed were visiting from a sister parish (st.paul georgetown), not from the church in question (st.paul lafayette). completely different.  :o

He's such an ass.  I was listening to the pastor of that church last night on CNN and she was really upset about the whole thing.  Plus Trump has managed to piss off the Catholics today too.  Maybe he's trying to offend a different faith every day.

Ellison (state AG) is upgrading the charge against Chauvin to second degree murder. Things have been quieter the last couple nights. Curfew is officially over tho Walz is expected to extend it one more night.* Plywood’s coming off storefronts in the area where I work.

*extended for the rest of the week.

My county is on curfew.  If they are going to do that then they better look at reform of local cops.

Police brutality doesn't have a bedtime. Why should protesters?

I mean, it's a tweet, on the internet. Where exaggeration lives.

But even I'm surprised that this is more than just a little believable, and I'm cynical for a living.

I love how that is what they are concerned about.  Not the reason why such groups exist.

Which is true, but the focus here for me is;

There is only one group who would criminalise anti-fascist views. If you believe this tweet, that group is issuing directions from the White House.

I'm not convinced the world is actually there yet, but I was shocked that I could even find such a thought plausible.

John Oliver on police misconduct.

The depressing thing is that this is four years old.

So it’s Harris for VP. Not a huge surprise, seems like a solid choice.

I like the pick.  I agree it is not a big surprise.

Safe choice.  Very similar to Biden.  Not my favorite but it wasn't like the pick was aimed at me anyway.  I am at the bottom of his concern.  White, male, living in California.  Hopefully this energizes people to get out to vote if other areas.  The one thing she lacks is that she is not from a contested state.
