Solicitation cases against Robert Kraft et al have been dropped because an appellate court ruled video of 'table showers' at Orchids of Asia in Jupiter FL was improperly obtained -> inadmissible.

Licenses should be required by LAW that all private 'massage' sessions are recorded
I don't necessarily mean top-down video recording where the participants are visible on-screen - it would be possible to monitor multiple aspects of sessions in other ways - participant positions + motion sensor arrays - think along the lines of anonymized kinect footage...
If someone visits a known trafficking establishment, saliva / volatile chem assays could be used to show presence and concentration of the relative proportion of biochemical markers that appear post-orgasm.

Hell, get some orgasm-sniffing dogs and park them outside the front door
At minimum, that should give enough probable cause to request access to monitoring data to help ensure those who frequent massage parlors for the "table showers" will be forced to testify under oath.

Yes - this is shorthand summary and I don't address nuance. It's big picture.
If an industry has problems, it's up to that industry to fulfill the conditions to mitigate or obviate those problems.

The cost of compliance is low; R&D could be funded by government research funds, and equipment/compliance could be provided as part of the licensure process.
But there is no reason why legitimate massage parlors and spas should be unwilling to follow a set of standards to clean up their industry, so long as they maintain the privacy of clients (at least the ones who aren't committing crimes.)
And - random fact - just because I have come across lots of weird shit in the past hour of research into post-orgasm biochemistry:

The science coming out of the Cow Pavilion is some of the weirdest shit you'll ever read.

Dear Americans:

"There are certain forces urging resistance to law in the name of freedom. They are not seeking freedom for themselves - they have it.

They are seeking to enslave others.

Their works are evil. They know it.
They must be resisted.

loc.gov/item/200465065…
The evil they represent must be overcome by the good others represent.

Their ideas which are wrong, for the most part imported, must be supplanted by ideas which are right.

This can be done.
The meaning of America is a power which can not be overcome."

- Calvin Coolidge, 1920.

I agree that @joebiden shouldn't spend his entire presidency focusing on Trump.

I do, however, think it would be worth one day a week to focus on measures that will prevent ANOTHER Trump* from ever holding a position of public trust.

* predatory con men
Investigations fall under the umbrella of an independent justice department and - more importantly - @HouseDemocrats.

Not just into Trump and his administration - but into the forces that subjugated the GOP to Trump's will.
And... throw that now-convicted serial pedophile who was speaker of the house and Jeffrey Epstein into the mix too.

Because it's all part of the same story.

Thought:
if the 2020 Presidential election alone cost $14bn, that establishes the value of an individual's vote in the range $58 (for all potential voters) & $90 (if only counting actual votes).

Wouldn't disenfranchising voters by excluding > 12 legit ballots be felony larceny?
Similarly, wouldn't suppression of >20 eligible voters by means of closing down polls or other acts that don't quite fit the definition of fraud also be considered felony larceny?
Just taking a rough stab at this before bedtime -

while state officials aren't USG employees, one could theorize that excluding legitimately cast ballots in a Presidential election could be considered unlawful conversion of 'property' -

When @BarackObama talks about identity, it isn't JUST about race, @AriMelber.

It's about who you identify AS - and that includes individuals' identities based on flawed understandings of patriotism and conservatism as influenced by hostile actors.
It's about inherited, inclusive AND exclusive identities (I am this, but I am also that VS I am this, therefore I am not that).

incl: "I am a New Yorker; I am an American"
inherited: "I am a New Yorker, so I am an American"
excl: "I am American, so I am not British"
The danger we face is with identity when political ideology shifts towards an exclusively exclusive model - and that's what hostile actors (both foreign and domestic) have been pushing for my entire lifetime:

the otherization of those who value this nation's original ideals.

Oh boy.

It seems the ENTIRE GA state infrastructure for remote work for COVID is managed through Airnet Group.

And they just happened to get it set up by December 2019. Before COVID was a problem?

🤔

This is BAD. @staceyabrams @sfpelosi
EVERY bit of data for the State of Georgia can be accessed through the same corporate entity that was hacked by Russia in 2015 - but most of THOSE emails + data wasn't released.

Used for blackmail and election tampering, yes. But not publicly released

Query:

what proportion of living Americans have inherited more than $100,000, or $500,000 that originated with wealth derived from slavery?

How does that transfer of wealth map to political identity and geographic location?

Does anyone have a reference or primary source data?
It's a shame that Adam Goodheart at @washcoll doesn't have a twitter account. We could really use some more learned historians around here - to proviede truthful answers to questions about slavery and political dynamics around the civil war...

Note: above is untitled, for some reason - it's the proportion of households per state that owned slaves.

This is the overall proportion in all slave-owning states. Image
