“They were careless people. They smashed up things & creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, & let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

Don't take this day for granted.
Trump came fairly close to winning the EC despite huge public repudiation.
Rs almost kept control of the Senate, allowing massive sabotage.
Terrorists almost managed to kill multiple members of Congress.
We've had a miraculous escape 1/
The ugly is out about how America is not great. Many of us knew this, but Trump's singular skill besides destroying everything is that his four years has shown all of the awful things and ways in which this nation is broken. MAGA wasn't great. It showed the flaws and brokenness.
Funny Trump was never rushed to safety during the attack on the Capitol, isn’t it?
Doesn’t matter he was at the WH, not the Capitol.
Doesn’t matter they were his supporters.
The reality is an armed mob was blocks away, and IEDs had been located.
Yet Trump watched it all on TV.
Please don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK
This is happening: Trump & his allies have reportedly accepted tens of thousands of dollars — potentially hundreds of thousands — from wealthy convicted felons seeking pardons in exchange for cash.
Presidential pardons should not exist. Just one more thing on a long list of needed reforms.
A poignant insight by Mr. Kasparov. The left has to handle this in a way that won’t empower the radicals..“Demagogues don't find radicals to lead, they steadily radicalize their followers one outrage at a time.” This is a must read. @Kasparov63
Replying to @Kasparov63: Thank you. You get attacked for “both sidesism” when you point out things like this, but the goal is to slow and constrain…
The death penalty is fundamentally a poor person’s issue. Over nearly 40 years of visiting death row facilities across the United States, I have never met a single person with money or resources. Capital punishment means “those without the capital get the punishment.”
