Lev Parnas sentenced to prison.

From CNN: https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/29/politics/lev-parnas-giuliani-sentence/index.html

One more down, and getting closer to ol' Rudy.

Seriously, what would be the penalty for

lying to Congress under oath?

Would a committee have to vote on passing it on to DOJ?

I'm getting information overload.

When I saw that post about Turkey dropping objections to Sweden and Finland, my first reaction was WTF. Then I realized it meant the country, not the bird.

Yikes.

TV and film tropes.

We don't watch all that much TV, but I've been noticing for a long time that some of the "images" we see all the time don't make any sense and I'm finally getting around to commenting.

For instance, when a character enters a house during the day and uses a flashlight to look around even with the windows wide open. Or last night, we were watching Stranger Things on Netflix, and, in the first episode, a character enters a shack on their property and it's dark inside even though a light bulb is glowing.

Another one I love is in offices, when the entire building is dark and they have lamps in the room. They can have two or three, but the room is still fairly dark.

And the one that I find hilarious is when the detective goes to a building downtown and always seems to find a parking space right in front of the door. Having grown up in San Francisco, this one takes the cake for me.

Medieval Europe, here we come.

Yup. Courtesy of the fucking repukes.

Unbelievable: Jordan Klepper with magats.

From Huffpost, Jordan interviews rally attendees in Mississippi:

The sheer ignorance and arrogance are beyond words.

Are some of these SCOTUS folks

getting money under the table from the NRA or other groups, or are they just naturally assholes?

As much as I'd love to see that sob

in prison for the rest of his life, I really wish he'd have a fatal stroke or heart attack. That way we wouldn't be hearing about him for years.

Or paying for his prison costs or his appeals.

And if his followers want to turn him into a martyr, well, there's no accounting for taste.

And I'm really sorry to have lowered myself to this level.

Seriously, could Russia be behind

all these mass shootings?

We know they're buying off some repukes (who refuse to do anything), thru the NRA. And the NRA supposedly has ties to Russia.

Not much of a stretch to think they may be buying off some of the shooters too.

I know this sounds like tin-hat time, but these are crazy times.

I know there are practical considerations, but

I so wish teachers all across the country would stage a mass walk-out. Like everywhere.

Or just not come back once school starts again.
