Threatening to kill cops sent to find the legislators is a new one, though, afaik.
He'll 100% do it too. Do not fuck with Oregon State Senator Brian Boquist. He's a cold-blooded punk with nothing to lose and he'll go back to Rikers just to prove a point. He doesn't fucking care.

My favorite part is that she says it’s “coopting” the language of the oppressor, as if that would be a bad thing if it were possible.

Manzanar was a concentration camp.
Auschwitz was a death camp.
Not sure whether Trump's border facilities qualify for either of those terms.

Re: The Sheriff Joe Arpaio Memorial Prison Reform Thread

It's Kristof, so nothing new or remarkable here , but it's a tidy summary of reasons to stop beginning your sentences with "But if we have to have a death penalty..." One quibble though: The result of this division is that the court is unlikely to constrain executions significantly. Yet there is som...

Re: Iran (so far away)

Like in Fujairah, dozens of ships ranging from massive oil tankers to smaller pleasure boats, traditional dhows and cargo vessels ply the waters of the strait and the Gulf of Oman. The navies of Iran, Oman, the UAE and the U.S. regularly patrol, but the waters are vast and lit only by the moonlight...

Re: Antivaxxers

I had reason to look up why Hasidics are antivax. Turns out they aren't generally. The minority who are do so because they are defying their rabbis . About 9% of Americans think vaccines are not safe, but Minke is unusual even among that vocal minority. She is an ultra-Orthodox Jew, part of a commun...
