@GottaLaff

Huge case (Us v Rahimi) in more ways than one: 103 pages

Amy Howe, moderator of SCOTUSBlog wrote "This was a real monster of an opinion, length-wise. I'm now understanding a little better why it took the Court so long to release it."

(she'''ll be writing an analysis of it)

“they are attacking the ten commandments”
Listen I know this is hard to relate to if you live in a place where everyone isn’t going to the same 8 different Christian churches in a town with a population of less than 80,000 but this is what the little town where my mom grew up in PA was like. Churches are the social fabric— a “different religion” means someone is Catholic or goes to one of the three Black churches.

This commandments in the schools thing is supposed to stirred up an old wound.

@futurebird @TomSwirly "Popular religious listicle" as a description of the ten commandments was not on my bingo card for today, but I still feel like I won.

My parents used to go to one that actually did. Their pastor had other issues as far as I was concerned but the church as a whole did great outreach and provided a thriving community for its members. It had grown up from a much smaller church over the decades they lived nearby.

My experience with other mega churches doesn't live up to that one, though. They focus more on the leadership's message than building community.

Newly-named Washington Post editor Robert Winnett has decided not to take the job and remain in England amid leadership turmoil at the news organization.

The Post’s CEO and publisher, Will Lewis, announced Winnett’s decision to withdraw in a note to staff on Thursday morning. He will stay as deputy editor of the Telegraph in London.

@GottaLaff @ScottSa Canceled my subscription as soon as they hired Lewis. Maybe he’s the one who should go. I’m sure Rupert can find him work. Again.

Other than being one of the greatest espionage movies ever made, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) is also an interesting film because I have never seen a city get so thoroughly sledged in a movie than London does there.

By which I mean, I saw that movie in cinemas and decided I never, ever, EVER wanted to visit London, despite being fully aware that it's a cinematic depiction, not a documentary. Nothing has ever looked so drab and soul-sucking than London in that film.

@vampiress Oh that means you soon get to watch Payback (late season 2) for the first time! IMHO probably the best episode of the series.

@GottaLaff @KimberlyN We'll see. I agree those things were ways of describing him.

Now I wonder if he's any of those things.

The border wall scam is certainly one they would be fine with. Until he got caught.

Stories about Trump raising more money than Biden last month after he became a convicted criminal are a bit misleading in that one billionaire Timothy Mellon gave Trump $50M. The implication is that Trump received a groundswell of public support related to his felony conviction. While he may be getting some MAGA minion dollars, the reality is he is primarily getting hefty support from the twisted fascist billionaires trying to take over this country.
