      • She missed the memo - she's supposed to tell them to stand back and stand by.
        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

          Mookie thinks so too

          You can tell how badly the media wants it to be true because Biden is winning so they talk about "enthusiasm". That means the race isn't even as tight as they are pretending it is. The local media is so predictable.

            Maybe so; I don't know Minnesota politics. But isn't it actually a good thing that dem voters hear grim predictions so they are motivated to show up? Too many Ds took Hilary for granted.

              I don't think the level of motivation matters in June sorry.

              BTW in 2020 Biden was lagging in his supporters motivation, was struggling with Black and Latino voters whilst Trump was "surging" in all 3 at right about this time. In June 2022 the incoming Red Wave had Dems so disenfranchised their motivation was in the toilet.

              • A voter initiative passed in North Dakota yesterday which basically says that if you will turn 81 in the calendar year prior to the last year of the term, you are not eligible to run for US House or US Senate from North Dakota for that term. It's sort of strange since I don't think North Dakota has actually sent an 80 year old to Congress for more than 30 years, and there doesn't really seem to be anyone they are targeting. Apparently they just want to spend some money on a federal lawsuit.

                I assume it'll be challenged at some point, and likely go down.
                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    • The latest in what seems to be a long list of issues in twin cities high schools with “culture clashes” this year especially.

                      not life altering issue but seems very entitled to me to think that you can ignore rules meant to help everyone just because “you’re excited someone graduates” and that it’s entitled to ask people to stop screaming lol

                              Agreed. I’m happy it means so much to you. Throw a rager somewhere because of it. But at the ceremony shut up so others can hear their loved one’s names called too.

                              • DrewS first posted about it, but there's a murder trial happening in MA that is... something to behold.


                                What we know:
                                A police officer was found dead outside a home in January of 2022 after a snowstorm.


                                That's, like, literally all we're sure of at this point, because the police decided his girlfriend did it immediately and performed the most absurd "investigation" imaginable. I have no idea if she did what she's charged with (to wit: drunkenly hitting him with her car after a fight). She might have? It's impossible to know, but to me the real story is utterly incompetent police investigation and an absurd decision to charge the defendant. I'd be absolutely livid if I was on this jury. Some fun facts:
                                • Despite his body being found early the next morning outside the home, police never went inside to look around.
                                • Attendees of the party were never interviewed separately, only in a group.
                                • Police refused to turn over a ton of investigation, fighting for months to suppress things like communications between investigators, before the Supreme Judicial Court required them to.
                                • A couple of days after receiving notice that they'd need to turn in their personal/work phones, several investigators and witnesses instead destroyed them.
                                • The texts that were recovered included the lead investigator relentlessly insulting the defendant.
                                • Several neighborhood ring cameras were taken in by the police and then lost.
                                • The deceased's injuries are not consistent with being struck by a car, but also include puncture wounds on the arms, possibly consistent with a dog bite.
                                • The owners of the home - Canton, MA police officers - rehomed their dog (that they'd owned for several years) a few months later.
                                • The owners of the home renovated the basement, where the party had been, a few months later, and then sold the home despite it having been in their family multiple generations.
                                • The defendant's car has a cracked rear tail light that isn't particularly consistent with expected damage if backing into a human adult at 22 mph.
                                • No blood was found on the bumper, but a single hair was a few days later that may or may not even have been human. Again, it snowed that night, a lot.
                                • Despite a sizable gash in the deceased's head, no blood was found where his body was found. No blood was found inside the home because again... they never entered it.

                                Clouding this case is some right wing troll named Turtleboy has taken up her defense. Something about a stuck clock being right from time to time? I could go on and on about this case. It's absurd. Charges should never have been filed, let alone murder charges. But a cop died and the cops that covered it up, I mean wanted justice, insisted so the DA is likely just taking one for the team here.


                                I'll restate that I have no earthly idea if the defendant caused his death. But what I do know is that "reasonable doubt" has been an anchor around this case from the beginning. I sincerely hope she's acquitted because we can't allow bull**** investigations like this to put people in prison.
