Holy hell this is one of the most depressing podcast episodes I've listened to in awhile

Ds are going to get annihilated in 2022...

Keep this same energy when Republicans take the House next year. Y'all will need it for 2024
No

I'm sure they exist, but the party is a threat to national security and it will remain run by Trumpists for the foreseeable future
This episode was a focus group of all Democrats
It included one Democrat who voted for Trump in 2016, yes
Not sure we get there in 2024; if the results are lopsided enough for Rs to have a House majority, it's likely the R POTUS candidate won too. So nothing to overturn.

2028? Different story
You're not wrong, but I expected it from MAGAland and the MAGA-adjacent
I don't know much re Cox, but I get the impression Romney thinks the GQP is salvageable. Wishful thinking IMO (said as a former Romney voter and donor)
It's the rational thing to do if you know you're party is going to overturn bad results

Cancel elections or have sham elections and you risk looking illegitimate. Overturn results because of "fraud" and ppl go along like everything is normal
Politicians aren't your friends in general, they're employees

This is correct. And most police officers in most states will do exactly that if you don't have your license on you -- unless they want to use the opportunity to make your life harder for not having the physical license
I was wondering wtf prompted the bizarre response, this explains it. Thanks for the FYI 👊
I have no clue who you are, and you were never tied to this "string" / thread

I have a disturbing number of ties wtf
The COVID shutdowns hit soon after I moved in with the Mrs, so my ties mostly sat in a moving box for nearly two years now

Except for like a dozen of the loud ones, and a handful of "business" ones for trials
But post-wedding we got a half-dozen new tie hangers in a different style from what I used to use

The old ones were designed to collapse, to fit in my tiny apartment closet Image

*****************
7TH ANNUAL
BULL CITY FOODRAISER
UPDATES #2
*****************

In just four weeks, we'll be doing the money-raising portion for our *7th* annual winter food drive on November 5th 😬

Wanted to update y'all on where things are, and what we need...
If you missed the last batch of updates – including this year's timeline – they're in this thread:
First, the fundraising target

Our goal this year is only going to be $56K – basically the same as last year – because honestly I'm skeptical we can match last year's numbers 😂

Spoiler: the 1/6 Commission was never going to enforce the subpoenas

The House refuses to use inherent contempt power, and a subpoena fight in the courts will last years – while the committee disappears on 3 January 2023

It was always going to end this way
Congress has zero interest in being the Article I branch of Government

They all, collectively and individually, prefer an Imperial Executive setup. That frees them to do nothing of substance, criticize whatever they want whenever they want, and continue to be feted as important
Of course the people on the commission are going to insist they're doing important work and their subpoenas should be honored and etc etc

Wake me when there's expedited briefing on an enforcement action

Until ones filed, expedited, appealed, expedited, appealed, it's all 💩

College kid whose "friends" threw him under the bus finally got to have the case against him dismissed today as part of a DPA

Bro didn't even smoke but got saddled w/ the felony weed charge! 🤦‍♂️

Good start to the weekend
No F on his record, *and* gainfully employed in a pandemic 💪 Screenshot of text messages with [redacted] client  "Ok
You're preaching to the choir my friend

But legislators won't decriminalize it because there's too much money in enforcement

Love to end the game on a pick 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
To the extent you can call Gino Smith throwing a football into the open arms of his opponents at the end of the game while his team is down 6, yes
