Here's an interesting take: Students should refuse to go back to school.


Laurence Tribe


An intriguing idea: “What if students, parents, and teachers took the next three months to mobilize? They could create thousands of local committees supporting the strike and decide on what the national demand might be—say, an assault-weapon ban.”

Morning Tweet from Aunt Crabby.


Aunt Crabby Calls Bullshit 


Good Morning Nasties. A reminder that a "Well Regulated Militia" does not kill kids. That's the tweet.

The little kids are just legally sanctioned target practice.


Living in the land of the free means 18 year olds can buy AR15s to kill 10 year olds. The rights of the killers are protected in the 2nd Amendment. The little kids are just legally sanctioned target practice. Their lives are a price Republicans are willing to pay.

Republicans don't want solutions. . .


Brian Tyler Cohen


Republicans complain about high gas prices. Then they vote against cracking down on price gouging at the pump. Republicans complain about the baby formula shortage. Then they vote against funding for baby formula. They don’t want solutions, they want problems to campaign on.

Replying to @EliseStefanik

Yeah, I'm just sure of it. Like w Jan 6th, right? Or Tree of Life, yes? You used rhetoric meant to dehumanize for exactly this just yesterday, you orally-flatulent, 2-faced mass of moral refuse. You light the spark and put the guns in their hands. But you've got prayers!

"Orally-flatulent" is a special turn of phrase.

Dear Joe. An open letter to the President.


Hey there, Mr. President. Forgive the informality. In an earlier version of this letter, the honorifics left me with a sense that it wasn’t ok to speak my mind to you, and after all, you are the president and I am your constituent, and we should be able to talk candidly. Hello.


We have seen the GOP and their base of white supremacists invade and destroy the Capitol in an attempt to steal the election days before your inauguration, and then we’ve sat here, for almost eighteen months so far, as the Department of Justice fails to indict a single primary organizer of those events despite the deepest, most incendiary actions tracking all the way into the Oval Office of your predecessor.

We have seen the GOP smash our voting rights state by state, gerrymandering districts beyond recognition and decimating one of our most important rights, while the Democratic party sits back and says, oh well, too bad so sad, Freedom to Vote Act, the filibuster is more important than you are.


And now, we have read a draft opinion from one of those same justices, supported by four more of them who plainly lied during their confirmation hearings, that will destroy the bodily autonomy of more than half the people in this country, and we have watched in response as the Democratic party, and you, have engaged in performative gestures of support while doing nothing, literally nothing, to try to preserve our rights and save our lives, and while a member of our own party claims the filibuster as his protection and thereby sentences pregnant people in America to forced birth and preventable death.

Despite all this, you seem to think that we are the ones who will have to do more, yet again, come November.
