Depends on how magnanimous the Defendants are and how much $$$$$ R.Broly is willing to pay them.

Ty Beard did so bad at the TCPA hearing that I'd be begging for a settlement if I were in his shoes

I removed him from the @fsckemall blocklist after his hysterical whining, so instead he blocked me

Dude's definitely a b*tch

It was a typo, but either way it's never defamatory

A competent lawyer would have *started* with the hotel room tweet

Ty Beard doesn't 👏 know 👏 what 👏 he's 👏 doing 👏

This is so amazing

No matter how dumb I've thought Ty Beard (@TyBeard10) was at any point before today – he's proven to me that I *vastly* overestimated him

"Call me and I'll explain it to you" headass

🤣🤣🤣
HOLY SHIT DID TY BEARD BLAME THE DISCOVERY STAY FOR NOT HAVING MORE AFFIDAVITS???

The stay only applies to getting discovery from *the other side*! 🤣🤣🤣

Ty Beard doesn't 👏 know 👏 what 👏 he's 👏 doing 👏

More classic, and pernicious, #ChristianAltFacts. This is what a right-wing jeremiad looks like. The rhetoric of this genre serves to uphold white supremacist patriarchy.

#EmptyThePews #WhiteChurchQuiet #TuesdayThoughts
And take note of this:

“He specifically called out Beto O'Rourke for calling the president racist, questioning how ‘someone who has repeatedly denied being racist can be an 'open, avowed racist.'"

Because to a white evangelical, the only way to be racist is to say “I’m racist.”
And yet Huckabee’s still has the gall to blithely assert that skin color doesn’t matter practically in the same breath.

While coming with all the attendant problems of a “color blind” approach to racism, this is beyond disingenuous. Talk about having your cake and eating it too

Texas's anti-SLAPP statute requires the judge to enter an order for the loser to pay the winner's attorney fees. It's not optional.

TCPA §27.009(a)

Twitter says you've @'d me 78 times since 6/11, with 20+ of them in just the past few hours

This seems like a pot-kettle moment for you

Definitely a reasonable assumption. Given Screech's perpetual word vomit on YouTube, there are likely some things he'll authenticate that would help on the merits of the TCPA motion too

More or less sad AF than wearing a mask over facepaint in public?

Basically. Except using 13+ warriors at the same time to do it instead of just one 😂

Sure! Make sure to also include the video where Percy explains why he's giving discovery to a non-party to share publicly 🙃

Also: if you picked "Screech and Percy are only in this for the grift money" in the betting pool, please see the cashier to collect your LOLbux

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

WAT IS MET DEZE VOGEL EN WAAROM SCHIJT IE VOOR MIJN DEUR!?
Geen nest, niks, hij heeft gewoon precies dat plekje uitgezocht om een beetje rond te hangen en te schijten, dus.
Goed, het is dus een scholekster die waarschijnlijk ons dak heeft gekraakt en er een nestje heeft gebouwd. We zullen er dus nog maand of 2 mee zitten. Suggesties voor een naam?

Knock it off with these vapid "this is not us" platitudes - they mask, rather than ADDRESS, the problems.

Bigoted, hateful racists are targeting @IlhanMN precisely because this is EXACTLY who "we" are. Have you seen the current White House occupant?

If we were "better than this," attacks on Ilhan Omar would not be happening.

Guess what?

1) They are.
2) We aren't.
3) WE NEED TO BE.
"We are better than this" is the racism translation of "#ThoughtsAndPrayers" for mass shootings.

Utterly useless, hollow, and fundamentally performative.

Rhetorical masturbation. Bas.

I’m about to say the most (likely only) right wingish thing you’re ever going to hear from me, so...

Controversy alert....
The “nanny state” (ugh I feel gross even typing that) drives me insane with 29 day supplies of critical medications.

Insurance screwed up so prescriptions are all filled on wonky days and they won’t deliver because The Law. Every month I have a couple days of lag.

Annoying.
I have to bring my plane ticket to maybe but probably not convince them to fill my scrips early because I’m leaving the country and would prefer not to do the international lecture circuit unmedicated.

SO IRRITATING.

I haven't slept in a couple days (don't ask) because reasons), but I am pretty amped up about the class I'll be teaching in a couple hours.

It should be pretty fun. The syllabus says "Iconoclasm & Islam," and on my syllabi, titles like that geneeeeerally mean: BAIT AND SWITCH.
One fun part of this class will entail showing students a (yes, safe) ISIS clip of what we would generally call 'iconoclasm' (actually really, extremely limited in number, proportionally - considering how prolific they are, and in a variety of media topics, themes, and genres)
Basically, that should get them talking about what I expect them to think and say as interdisciplinary / intermediate students without backgrounds, for the most part, in Art History and/or "The Middle East."

People at risk of harming others or themselves show signs before #GunViolence or self-harm happens:

—Fascination/obsession with guns
—Extreme isolation
—Social withdrawal
—Victim of long-term bullying
—Hints about an attack
—Threats of violence

Sending thoughts and prayers to the @NRA, now that the Maria Butina, the Russian spy who will connect them to all that Russian money they laundered and gave to Trump, has inconveniently changed her plea to guilty. 🙏
#ThoughtsAndPrayers also to @RickSantorum, appearing here with the notorious Russian spy, Maria Butina.
#ThoughtsAndPrayers also to @DonaldJTrumpJr, who met with Russian spy Maria Butina even BEFORE he met with other Russian spies at Trump Tower, because he *may* be just smart enough to get nervous when he hears she is now cooperating. 🙏

1/Last night we and other local leaders of @MomsDemandAction, @WAGV,@Momtivist, @fialosangeles spoke with @KatieHill4CA about her quote in @NYTimes. We wanted to give Katie the opportunity to explain before we made a public statement. #CA25
nytimes.com/2018/11/09/us/…
2/We do appreciate that @KatieHill4CA took the time to listen to our concerns about the consequences of this quote. We'll allow Katie to better explain how this quote came about. #CA25
3/We want be clear that this order of sentences, however they came to print are uninformed and dangerous. We and so many LA-based activists worked tirelessly these past 2 years to get the #NRA out of #CA25 and that includes NRA talking points.

It’s been said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over again & expecting different results.

🔹264 days since the #ParklandShooting
🔹12 days since the #SynagogueShooting
🔹0 days since #ThousandsOaks

🤬 your #ThoughtsAndPrayers

We want #GunControlNOW
@GOP/@NRA talking point: “Gun control doesn’t work”

Except it does in Canada, Australia, Israel, UK, EU, Norway, Iceland, Japan…

The statistics don’t lie.

The US has a sick gun culture—We are literally being held hostage to a GOP Congress & a gun lobby org.

#GunControlNOW

This is heart wrenching.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
NOW is the time to talk about it.

It’s been 162 days since the #ParklandSchoolShooting

In 2 days, the US will be able to download & print a 3D gun

While the @NRA is being investigated for funneling money from Russia in 2016, GOP politicians are offering #ThoughtsAndPrayers to kids returning to school in August.
In today’s WTF news: Guns Do Kill People.
Not one piece of gun legislation has been introduced by the GOP since Columbine.
A tax exempt lobbyist org is lining GOP politician’s pockets to look the other way while our nation’s children are being slaughtered.

Since you brought it up...

You know what connects Paul Manafort and (founder of the Federalist) Ben Domenech? Fact-Based Communications (FBC Media).

FBC media did PR disguised as journalism paid for by the Malaysian government. Ben Domenech was a subcontractor for that work.
👇👇Joshua Trevino worked for the government of Malaysia alonside Fact-Based Communications or FBC Media.

Trevino's subcontractor Ben Domenech made $36,000 from the arrangement.

They called what they were doing journalism. It was really a PR campaign.
buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/cove…
In 2011, the same year FBC Media worked their PR campaign in Malaysia, "two FBC principals led the work with Manafort: the firm's founder, longtime journalist Alan Friedman, and former CNN business news producer Eckart Sager."

Woke up to tragic news of another shooting in the US. The shooter left an AR-15 at the scene, 4 dead.

How many more will die before #GunReform is passed? These WMD are way too easy to obtain.

The time for #ThoughtsandPrayers is over.

We the people Demand #GunReformNow
2/It’s NOT fallacy: our peer counties that’ve enacted #GunLaws do NOT have shootings like the US.

Military grade weapons do not belong in the hands of civilians. A shooting occurs in this country on average every 60 hours.

This is an Epidemic.

I am an American Citizen and a registered voter!

I hereby pledge to never vote for a candidate who accepts money from the NRA.

I will only vote for a NRA rated F candidate.

Almost all of the Road Runner cartoons are available via the @BoomerangToons app.

I subscribed for $5 & decided I'm gonna watch & tweet about 'em all in chronological order, even the later, terrible ones, for which I have an irrational affection.

Here we go.

Boomerang lists them alphabetically not chronologically so Chuck Jones masterpieces sit side-by-side with 1960s atrocities (& later 'revival' attempts.)

I am going to start at the beginning. I will also be including Wile E. Coyote/Bugs Bunny & Ralph Wolf/Sam Sheepdog shorts, FYI
September 17, 1949: "Fast And Furry-ous"

Chuck Jones intended this short to be a parody of cat & mouse "chase" cartoons. Instead, he accidentally created the definitive chase cartoon series of all time.
