      True, but we know the people who have already been charged and sentenced got off with sentences that are laughable at best. I mean christ they were allowed to travel out of the country on bail...they weren't even jailed after violating the very light provisions of their bail. As of now it looks like they aren't taking any of this seriously in an effort to look non-partisan.

        And by then it is too late. You really think the DOJ will pursue any of this if the Dems aren't in control any more?

        This isn't some long term investigation into terrorism or wire fraud...they have fucking video of what people did and many of them still haven't been charged. Hell the ones in California commit other crimes blocks from the FBI field office and post videos while doing it on Twitter. (which are then liked by cops on Facebook)

        The defense some give of Garland is the same BS they said about Mueller during his investigation. The problem is the effectiveness of whatever they find goes down the longer it takes especially since most of us saw everything live. The Rolling Stone article...basically only confirmed what everyone paying attention knew months ago.

        This is just going to turn into another Impeachment which goes nowhere unless the DOJ drops the hammer before the midterms. They need to force testimony in the 1/6 Commission or this is all just theater anyways.

Obama nominated him because he would be nice to the GOP and Biden nominated him because he would be nice to the GOP. And they sure are nice.
          No Garland was a good pick for the Supreme Court he was a highly respected Appellate Court Judge. Putting him up for the Court was a solid decision and in with any other version of the Senate (even a GOP without McConnell) he would have been an easy confirmation from what I can tell. That is where he belongs. Some men are born for stuff like that. He just isn't the right Wartime Consigliere...

            Seems to me he wants to get along to get along. Maybe that makes a good Judge in normal times. It does nothing for us now.

              And those people really didn't do anything but trespass in a building they shouldn't be in. They weren't the ones trashing the building, fighting the cops, etc.

              Not every one of them deserves the book thrown at them just cause they got caught up in the moment.

                But I don't think we should take any bombshell reporting from RS at face value. It's a garbage magazine.

                When the AP or NYT or WAPO confirm it, I'm in.
                When it comes to reporting on more serious topics what makes it a 'garbage magazine'? I don't want to hear people whine about Matt Taibbi as opposed to their supposedly having a long track record of getting **** wrong.

                  I just want to say, @SenatorSinema is the most egregious, corrupt, self-interested and irreverent Democrat I have ever seen serve in our Senate. And I for one will do all in my power to defeat her in the 2024 primary. Yes, I hold a grudge!

                    The UVA rape case was horrifically badly reported and did untold damage to the quest to improve how we "handle" sexual assault in this country. It was used constantly during the #Metoo height to downplay, ignore and marginalize anyone with a real problem. There are dozens of other examples of shoddy reporting and story-trumps-accuracy there, but this one... this was a big deal and they blew it badly.

                    I don't want to make this about the dumpster fire that is that magazine. Like I said, I am mostly sure that they're probably getting the story about correct, but until someone with even a modicum of journalistic legitimacy can verify the story, I'll withhold judgement.

                            • First, banks report $10k transactions. Now the talk is reporting of $600 transactions. That may just be a red herring but ...

                              Sec. Yellen now floats a tax on unrealized capital gains as part of Mr. Biden's plans ... but just on millionaires and billionaires. What's the guess on how long that floats down to anyone that files a 1040? I'll say less time than it took for $10k to become $600.

                              And a tax on UNREALIZED gains. That's no different than taxing someone on next year's contracted salary. The money isn't in hand, isn't real, hence unrealized, and you're taxing it? How does the person with unrealized dollars pay a real bill?

                              Yes, I understand how the ultrarich game the system (by buying assets that appreciate, borrowing against assets, and then dying before realizing the cap gain, aka "buy, borrow, die"), but until that gain is real it's a book, or paper, "gain".

                              That's why I'd favor more consumption based taxes*: You show what you have by what you buy.



                              *Lots of details about standard deductions, etc, here also to handle. And no, I really don't like retailers being the de facto tax collector either. And this approach is also ripe for fraud and workarounds.

                              • Of course you would rather have taxes that have greater impact upon those making less money.

                                You wouldn't be a "libertarian" if you didn't.
