"Unity" means letting sedition go unpunished; it means do what WE want. The fools yearning for normalcy refuse to consider that maybe "normalcy" means unilateral disarmament, nothing more.

Throw out some bait, and sometimes, some transparency will follow.

Normally, this is where we all laugh off the thought that "this is the thing that takes Trump down", but that is pretty incriminating if true.

If anyone haven't seen it, Frontline had a episode on Maria Ressa and her news opp on how they covered Duterte's rise and disinformation system, how it works and who some of the players are. It echos this twitter thread well. Its worth your time.

Don't know, if there ever was going to be a former President charged it would be Trump. However, given the chatter were hearing from the GOP he's never going to be accountable for anything, he may have not that far off when he said he could kill someone in Times Square and get away with it.

Surely there can’t be that many of those who weren’t military. I’m thinking of Dick Cheney.

I am glad to see a non-vet in charge of the Dept of Vet Affairs. The VA is a complete dumpster fire so it might be good to have someone from outside the military try to fix it.

I've got an Irish Coffee to Biden here's to an improvement over the next four years! Using Tullemore Dew, like it's sherry butt finish, has notes that remind or suggest the Macallan although, IMO Highland Park is GOAT.

Didn't the tweeter already counterpoint their own point or am I misreading it?
