Sometimes the back and forth about big ideas in the news, politics and culture can get confused or personal on social media. That's why I host a weekly stream/podcast (no edits) & invite everyone on. Please join me. Thank you.

The best part of COVID showing up when it did is that people my age can blame the vaccines and refuse to admit we're getting old.

Send 87,000 IRS agents to Ukraine, they'll find a lot of taxpayer money.

This was fantastic. The question with the Trump raid imo (so far) comes down to "selective enforcement" and how poorly these agencies have done their job recently. @EliLake@twitter.com nails it. We need a new Church Commission.

Imagine martyring yourself for Trump and you're labeled a "false flag" within 24 hours by the entire MAGA movement

Feels like a good night to shout into the ether:

Free Daniel Hale.

Pardon Reality Winner, Terry Albury, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, John Kiriakou, & Thomas Drake

And drop the charges against Julian Assange.

When will people get bored of people talking to people they agree with? Don't you want to learn something? For all the love of controversy and outrage, why is everyone a fucking coward? How edgy are you when all you do is listen to people reinforce your biases?

The game has changed. The rules now favor passing over everything else. I know that's hard for a team whose identity is defense, but @justnfields@twitter.com looks like he could be great given the weapons. Please @ChicagoBears@twitter.com, trade for a great WR or picks to get one next year.

I wonder if @davew and @robertwrighter@twitter.com know each other. Big names in the blogging world back in the day...

Don't think about politics in terms of supporting candidates or party membership. Focus on the civics. Do your part by helping everyone better understand the issues and improving our electoral system. Voting is required but it shouldn't be our focus.

Maybe the DOJ did a horrible thing today. Maybe they did their job despite the outrage they knew would come from it. But we have no idea yet, including all of the media apparently. Please stop entertaining yourself by fighting over public affairs we can't even understand yet.

When you replace runoffs with , you're not just saving money. You're also saving time since you don't need to go vote twice! ⏰

I'm divided on the Alex Jones case. So is everyone who defends him but thinks Rittenhouse or the Covington kid were slandered. We need a norm (not laws) of pushing back on actionable bullshit, esp extreme claims made w/o extreme evidence, esp by our own tribe.

Where is the Mr Jones (Counting Crows) parody song of AJ and Info Wars? C'mon No Agenda community. Who does a lot of the music these days?
