Cris Chamorro cheered on the US-backed rightwing coup in Bolivia in 2019, saying it was an "example" for Nicaragua to follow. Maradiaga is a violent, US-paid Aspen Institute asset and fmr. Contra Cruz was getting off a plane from Washington when he was arrested. But "spurious."

I think I see where you're going with this and let me be the first to tell you: don't.
As expected:

You know who really has it good??? | "I have to register (and) get my dog shots. I have to make sure my dog is healthy and pay for services... but homeless people, they don't have to feed their dogs. They don't have to get their dogs rabies shots. They don't have to do anything."

If you're saying this about fucking Bitcoin (which is being *imposed* by a Constitution-flaunting fascist dictator to please his friends in Miami and in no fucking way emerged as a solution from unbanked Salvadorans), you're absolutely wrong at best and a propagandist at worst.
It's just when "people try to find a way to survive on their own." What "privilege" to object to a scheme hatched at a coke-fueled billionaire party in Miami that is also being used to encourage speculative landgrabs by those same billionaires!
I never heard anyone in line at Western Union say, "what we really need are some techbro billionaire 'disrupters' to corral us into their investment scheme so we can save on fees, but potentially lose half the value of our fixed income at the whims of Elon Musk."

Not once.

(I had to look up the etymology of "dingus" to make sure it wasn't some racist, sexist or ableist garbage - although it's Dutch, for "thing," so it probably is?)

from the river to the sea, you fucking cowards
For USians, this is akin to making a solidarity statement with George Floyd protesters saying "we have nothing to lose but our chains," then retracting just that phrase because a bunch of actual cops hector you about the quote being made famous by Assata Shakur.

Pure cowardice.
If you don't support the inverse of the apartheid regime, I don't know if you can actually say you do "stand in solidarity" with Palestinians? Not my call to make, but it seems obviously antithetical to liberation to me.

CN: police violence, car attack, vehicle attack, mass casualty event, pigs

Different angle on the lethal use of force in Tacoma last night that shows sirens were not engaged at all.
The pig sounded the flat horn once or twice before attempting to murder everyone in his path over fear of a window, but that is not a "siren" in popular understanding - as the police PIO lied about here:
Anyway, BREAKING! #Copslie.

#Tacoma must be different. I've absolutely never seen "afraid they would break glass" as justification for the use of deadly force. I have, however, frequently seen "attempted to ram with a car" as justification for *police* killing other people.

Fuck you, @TacomaPD
Here's @seattletimes playing telephone and reinventing a direct quote, “He was afraid they would break his glass,” as the police use-of-force justifying "The officer drove away because *he feared for his safety*, Haddow said." seattletimes.com/seattle-news/t…

Pig was willing to kill all those people to save the car's windows, by their own admission. And they think this is justification.
Not "I feared for my life." Not "I feared for the lives of others." No. I "was afraid they would break the glass."

Absolute ghoul shit.

Democrats like Senator Sanders are going to get $15/hr. phased in by 2026 and it'll be another 11 years after that before they address it again. If you have "control of the White House, the Senate and the House," shouldn't you do better than implementing 2012's "living wage?"
Put another way: this isn't how you wield total control of the legislative process to carve out a longterm victory for workers, but it *is* a savvy political maneuver to ensure fealty to your social club far into the future.
In 2030, SEIU will roll out "Toil For $20" and Bernie's squad heirs will accentuate their pro-worker brands in another 11 year odyssey to realize that number by 2041, which will - of course - by then also be far too little to live on. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
