Federal law prohibits acts that “intimidate, threaten, coerce ... any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of [that] person to vote or to vote as he may choose."

The @VA_GOP thinks it’s funny. Image
Voter intimidation is specifically prohibited in Virgina law as well, @VA_GOP (GOP is law-and-order party ONLY for the laws it thinks should be enforced)

VA law prohibits anyone from acting in “noisy or riotous manner at or about the polls so as to disturb the election” and provides for 24 hours in jail @VA_GOP.

The election officials had to move the line of voters. That’s clearly a “disturbance.”

I am very Very tired of he-said, she-said reporting. Rather than tell us that Republicans think there is insufficient kerning (what?) ... why not tell us what the law/reg says? Why not tell us HOW this board can reject a ballot initiative?

Why not LINK to the document, @detroitnews?

Reproductive Freedom for All

I challenge anyone to find a problem with kerning, although by state requirements it is incredibly hard to read.

You don't even SHOW us the alleged hard-to-read section(s), @detroitnews! I expect such cavalier reporting from national orgs, which is why I went local.

Michigan state requirements for petitions
1. Paper 8-1/2 by 14 in
2. Heading, ALL CAPS in 14-point bold type🤦‍♀️

What’s the rhetorical fallacy for “look over there”? Red herring? It’s GOP land’s only ‘defense’ of Trump’s theft (and compromised intelligence).

And @ByronYork?
Do you have a better way to show, after the fact, that highly classified docs were stuck in a box with personal mementos? One that would make it clear to a judge that a crime had occurred? Note the docs aren’t visible, just their classification.

Perhaps some books need to be read after having life experience.

I have always been biased towards words. News via magazine and newspaper not television or even radio. So I can imagine having raced through Amusing Ourselves To Death, nodding my head.

But I’m re-reading it decades later.

I have questions: Was the requirement to own land in order to vote a proxy for literacy? Am I in error thinking that most 19th century Americans were illiterate? Who let women go to school?

The world that Postman paints as one of reason over passion feels like one dominated by White male privilege. Speeches were printed in full in newspapers. And readers had to follow current events to understand the arguments.

I am late to those who have been tracing the deaths of men associated with sexual predator (and assumed blackmailer) Jeffrey Epstein.
But this? How could there be no blood on the scene if the man shot himself with a shotgun??

Mark Middleton died 07 May 2022. Death ruled suicide. He was an Arkansas businessman who reportedly introduced Epstein to Bill Clinton.

heavy.com/news/mark-midd…
Now Steven Hoffenberg, a businessman who served 18 years in prison and who was “one of Jeffrey Epstein's close friends,” has been found dead in his Connecticut apartment. Hoffenberg hired Epstein in the ‘80s. Cause of death UK.

Epstein died via hanging in August 2019.

To understand how this came to be, see White flight + Reagan-era decimated federal infrastructure budgets. Image
And it's not just Jackson, MS. This exists across the country as White people fled cities to avoid integrated education, as the SCOTUS said suburban school districts were safe haven, where tax base exited.

I'm pretty sure my student loans were barely above prime rate. Plus, college was a helluva lot cheaper then than now (more public $).

𝗨𝗚𝗔 𝗰𝗼𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝟱𝘅 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆
Undergrad tuition (12 credits)
1976-77: $189 ($920, 2022$)
2021-22: $4895
🧵
That $10,000 is $2,000 in 1977 dollars, BTW.
It would have covered more than 10 quarters at UGA (tuition was $148 when I started).

Look. State government funding of "public" education is less than half the cost of an undergrad degree.

State funding for higher ed in 2018 was $6.6 billion LESS than in 2008 (adjusted dollars). States spent on average 13% LESS/student.
