Since I just got this and everything else is too serious, here’s a pic of me this week before an @SPJLA and @LAPressClub panel in my natural state (taking a selfie)
That thing in my phone is my library card lol #Priorities

So now that Dan Gerlach has resigned as ECU's interim Chancellor, when do we find out how much taxpayer $$$ was spent on UNC-system lawyers trying to keep those security videos under wraps for weeks? 🤔
To recap, Gerlach got suspended about a month ago

Ensuing media coverage focused on a prostitute who'd reportedly serviced him in one of Greenville's local watering holes

Old thread is here:
The public relations response after Gerlach's suspension hopscotched across a variety of excuses, including this notion that he'd been set up by ECU police officers who pressured him into going to the bar

This doesn't look like a guy being pressured tbh...

Just interesting that Facebook’s AI is really good at silencing Black people and catering to white fragility, yet they somehow can’t crack down on sharing this violent content.... #Priorities
The worst part of it all is that I have little hope for meaningful progress. Until we acknowledge the role of the ways our culture devalues children and conflates violence with sex, it will remain a problem.

Leave her for the sake of Allah? We kaffirs still don't understand.

They were doing it for the sake of Allah.
For those asking why Allah authorizes this?

Rape is a weapon of humiliation to be used against kaffirs since they have rejected the word of Allah.

Just like #ISIS, this is driven by theology. Allah make sure, multiple times, in the Holy Book that sex slavery is legal. He never mentioned how many times to pray. #Priorities.

Usually you try to get a Twitter account suspended *before* it can point out how badly your lawyer completely flubbed his make-or-break hearing that led to 12 of your 17 causes of action getting immediately dismissed 🤔
If y'all could kindly encourage folks to come follow @fsckemall for the next week, it would be appreciated 😂

An appeal's pending, but we know how those things go. Coordinated false-flagging works and Twitter does jack diddly about it
Also, we made some changes since last time so Mike doesn't have to monitor emails or pretend he understands social media because he's my age but still somehow a boomer

Really too bad yesterday's ANN article totally debunked the "casting couch" rumors

Poor conVics are gonna take across-the-board Ls on everything 🙃

First loss was yesterday (denying one of their Motions to Strike), main hearing is tomorrow, ruling is on or before October 7

ConVics know the loss is coming so they're more mad than usual

In 2020, #TCJA will generate more $ benefit to foreign investors ($38.3 billion) than to the the least well-off half of Americans (1.9 + 12.4 + 0.5*24.4 billion).

Lots of analysis @Schieder_ @iteptweets, including at the state level.
itep.org/tcja-2020/
@Schieder_ @iteptweets In 2020, #TCJA will generate 8.4x more benefit for the richest 20% of American families than for the middle 20% of American families
#priorities
@Schieder_ @iteptweets #TCJA's estate tax cut generates benefits only for families in the richest 1%.

The 1%'s estate-tax benefit alone exceeds all benefits to average families at every income level outside the richest 5% of families.

#TCJA benefited the 1% 8.4x their estate-tax benefit.

@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends No. You just changed your talking point (green text). The job-growth trend (blue line), not so much.

Your administration was born on 3rd base & you want to con us into thinking you hit a triple. Americans aren't falling for it. #NoFool
@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends Job growth has basically just continued on the inherited trend. But slowed a little.
@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends Same story with the unemployment rate. It's low & that's wonderful.

It's low thanks to progress so steady over so many years. Check out the trend over the last 12 years. Inherited progress has slowed.

@realDonaldTrump Unemployment is low & that's good. Check out trends in unemployment for African-Americans & other groups.

Progress so steady since 2010. No improvement on the trends you inherited.
@realDonaldTrump Check out the trend in the # of U.S. jobs. Same story. Progress so steady since 2010. No improvement on the trend you inherited.

You changed your talking point. The job-growth trend, not so much.
@realDonaldTrump This chicken can claim it's doing an awesome job driving because it took over the wheel when momentum's going the right direction.

When circumstances require more than squawking & preening, reality will be clear.

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 mean really 😂
Got a thread on it that ends here:

There are some additional nuances by state, but that should get him mostly up-to-speed

Basically, yes. It's not an affirmative defense but it will be an argument they make in their briefs, based on the evidence that comes out during discovery or affidavits that get filed

That language is more signaling than legal effect though

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

This was already addressed mid-thread. You do realize filing lawsuits costs money to the court, yes?

Not getting paid != going into the hole paying the court costs

The goat's still waiting...

There are a few options. Provide evidence he wasn't there or X wasn't there, or depose X and challenge X's credibility (history of lying, etc), or provide evidence X is lying (emails, texts, etc), or get on the stand to say "that's false" and pray

They're too dim to realize ppl find out about the GFMs *because* they were shared on Twitter

Earlier today I learned about this #StandWithVic hashtag and the total gibberish sent by his lawyers as part of a LOLsuit

Reminder to check out the defamation basics #Law140 on why this is going to end poorly for him
You seem to have missed the thread explaining the law

Not entirely surprised literacy is not your strong suit though

@GOPChairwoman @realDonaldTrump Beyond coasting on inherited trends, how has POTUS used power of his office?

Managed 1 big econ policy change: #TCJA tax law. Gave gift ($$ requiring no behavior change) to company owners. Profits skyrocketed.

Wages? An average hour of work buys 1.3% more now than a year ago.

If brands choose to have a presence on a social platform, they had better understand, and be well prepared for, the diversity of interactions they will encounter on those platforms. This is probably most crucial on @Twitter.
I'm talking to you @oakley, with whom I've been politely DMing to no avail for the past 4 months. Lesson #1: when a customer shows you the courtesy of quietly lodging their concerns by DM, instead of airing their grievance publicly, it behooves you to be responsive and thorough.
I'm talking to you @Dell, which doesn't get why canned responses don't work in every case. Lesson #2: When bombarding customers with surveys, please make sure the survey links work. When customers are courteous enough to advise you of this glitch, don't send them a bot response!

In tonight's criminal justice news, another cop escapes punishment for shooting an unarmed black man for sport

Killer cop Jonathan Aledda convinced a jury he wasn't guilty of shooting Charles Kinsey...

...b/c he was trying to kill the autistic boy Kinsey was watching instead
Not gonna say I called it... but I called it

Acquitted on one, 5-1 vote to acquit on the other three – meaning DA likely won't re-prosecute

The £75m bonus paid to the Persimmon boss equates to ~£5,200 per home. According to @theCCCuk housing report the cost of building to #Passivhaus standard is £4,800 per home. #Priorities

theccc.org.uk/publication/uk… theguardian.com/business/2018/… @RupertNeate @RHarrabin @MollyMEP
For the sake of accuracy the 14,500 homes figure came from the mobile site (m.persimmonhomes.com/about).
Main site says ~16,000 homes (persimmonhomes.com/about) so bonus is only worth about ~£4,700 per home

Still, this excludes bonuses to other execs, dividends etc.
Persimmon are probably not alone here (they just happened to make the headlines), it just that when numbers align like this it strikes a chord and puts the claim that £££ is the barrier to building more efficient homes into perspective.

In tonight's criminal justice news, 2 officers with the New Castle County (DE) Police Dept beat the sh*t out of 16-year-old Roger Brown for a "marijuana investigation" – while a 3rd tries to stop the recording

News story: delawareonline.com/story/news/cri…

Video: facebook.com/10000410547790…
Notice the 3rd officer isn't just telling the young man recording to "get back" – a lawful command if there was concern he was interfering

The officer is telling him to "get in the house," an unlawful command trying to prevent him from recording entirely
The Attorney General's Office has announced that they're going to investigate

Two grown men beating the sh*t out of a 16yo for weed is really pathetic tbh
