Look at this picture. Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was slaughtered by a man who legally owned an AR-15, extends his hand to a man who could decide the fate of countless lives. Fred introduces himself. Kavanaugh listens, nods, snubs the handshake, walks away without a word.

This is a BFD. The GOP-controlled legislature dragged its feet forvmonths on impeaching these justices to prevent their replacement by voters via special elections this fall. Missing today's deadline lets Republican Gov. Jim Justice appoint their replacements.

We’re strongly opposed to Shopper ID laws. There has been no evidence that grocery fraud occurs on a widespread basis, and restrictive Shopper ID laws only serve to prevent eligible shoppers from buying their groceries on shopping day.

I'd argue that a decline from ~28/29% of voters identifying as Republican to ~25/26% is not trivial, especially given that 28/29% is not too high to begin with. I'd also guess that those ex-Republicans have pretty lukewarm feelings on Trump.

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

STORY TIME: Incase you didn’t know I am one of the organizers for and we are currently traveling through TX organizing youth meetings, rallies and town halls. These counter protests at our events are incredibly invited because they allow us to clarify our message.

This may seem wonky, but it is a very big deal—and could have a major impact on how tons of administrative claims are handled, especially if opening the door to political appointments leads to more ALJs with clear sympathies (or hostilities) toward the regulated industries...

My 5-yr-old client can’t tell me what country she is from. We prepare her case by drawing pictures with crayons of the gang members that would wait outside her school. Sometimes she wants to draw ice cream cones and hearts instead. She is in deportation proceedings alone.

Someone says: "So, our government's doing a bad thing, and it needs to stop." A Trumpist says: "Something vaguely similar has happened before, so your argument is invalid." Folks, we already know this is a bullshit argument, but let's take a minute and unpack it.
