We attended our first gay wedding of a dear friend who was basically our fourth son growing up. It was so so celebratory, with so much love & support from a huge crowd. And I could not help but think of all the ppl who have nothing to do with this couple who would deny them.../1 ...their love and lifelong happiness. One of the older gay men there spoke about how delighted he was to see this loving couple having this opportunity, given how hard the community fought for this for years. So to those whose lives this does not affect, but who rage & scream...2

The @nytimes has publishes an absolutely reckless and wrong @nytopinion piece by Brett Stephens about a scientific paper he clearly did not read. He allows one of the authors to state in the article "masks don't work" for COVID-19. The paper says no such thing. In fact, the... ...paper, which does not even count as a meta-analysis based on how it was put together, but is simply an arbitrary collection of studies that may or may not have anything to do with COVID. It also makes very very clear that no valid conclusions can be reached from what it...2

Desantis says AP African American Studies was banned because it contains "queer theory." Reality:

Sigh. Since COVID conspiracy theorists are once again spreading disinformation (coming from the Epoch Times no less) and proving their scientific illiteracy, I want to come in one more time to explain to those who might need to tell the loons in your life why this is nonsense...1 ...ok. This is about COVID vaccines and blood clots. First, this whole issue has been known since 10/2020. All infinitesimal side effects have to be studied, as this one was. Before we get into the new study, an explainer on why blood clots can emerge in rare, rare instances...2

A big problem on Twitter now is the need to combat COVID ignorance being spread by conspiracy theorists, which I am about to do. But first: the magnitude of their inability to comprehend statistics and science is just jaw dropping. Their willingness to grab a headline without../1 ...reading the article, and then them using the headline to preen about how right and smart they are, is embarrassing to watch. That Americans have become *so* ignorant, so scientifically illiterate, and so willing to rely on nonsense to "prove" their beliefs is shameful and.../2

Read tweets on the continuing to trend "Ivermectin" list, and you will see the depths of Twitter's future, and why you need to start gradually shifting to Post.news.

There are tweets that are displays of *huge* ignorance, like an endless repeating of the lie that the NIH has placed ivermectin on list of approved treatments..2

I’ll probably get banned for this, because free speech ends right at @elonmusk doorstep.

Yet, score of…1 ….people with anonymous email accounts can open scores of bogus accounts imitating public figures, and it’s this endless effort to cut through the weeds of imitation.

Spending time in Barcelona is, in some ways, painful because I recognize how it exposes so many failings of the USA.

We all pretty much knew what the appeals court would do, trump judges or not. These judges sit on court of appeals. They may be conservative, but they are real judges unlike Cannon, who is a non judicial partisan in robes. But boy did they slam her. She erred on jurisdiction:…1 …she erred in deciding that her discretion is boundless, and can ignore law and facts….2

One of the conceits of the GQP, @GregAbbott_TX and @RonDeSantisFL is that only Texas and Florida have immigrants here illegally and those legally seeking asylum. Neither state is even the most. The tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT) have more than Florida. As a % of state population... ....the majority of the states housing these human beings are blue states.

This is why dumb people with agendas shouldnt have access to data. The feds stopped financing collection of marriage data in 1996, which led to a deterioration of its quality.

One of the worst conceits of the anti-abortion movement is the belief that, if only enough laws are passed, abortion will end. It is a theory espoused by people too ignorant or too disinterested to study history. Roe v.
