And yet while that money seems utterly abstract, it’s still real - as real as so many people’s lack of money.
 
(Although I do wonder what it might do to the economy if even half of it was put to active use…)

Texas has major industrial and military assets that belong to the United States, and their secession would grant then access to a good portion of the US nuclear stockpile.
 
Both are bad things.

Explain why secession is a bad idea in a society that’s so divided to the point of collapse/civil war?
 
The capital of any state that might split is too intertwined with the nation as a whole and is not merely regional anymore.

Biden slashes own infrastructure bill as he bends the knee to Republicans.
 
Republicans are against Biden’s infrastructure plan despite overwhelming support from the voter base all over the spectrum. Last week or so Biden gave the GOP a deal in that they should come up with their own plan if they didn’t like his. Of course they didn’t. So now Biden is instead cutting his own plan in order to appease Republicans.
 
And they still aren’t supporting the slashed plan. Democrats only know how to lose.
 

 
Lawyers for Y’all Qaeda are stating their clients are refusing to agree to plea deals because they are honest to god dumb enough to believe Trump will still save them.
 
You know the sad thing about the recent news of one of their lawyers saying the insurrectionists ride the short-bus?
 
He’s not wrong.

Written yet another way, polling suggests that 1/4 of respondents ride in a bus shorter than a clown car.

Something i have been wondering lately, but does using he phrase “All Lives Matter” automatically mean you are secretly dog whistling for the Alt-Right, or have the Alt-Right mutated that phrase so now everyone thinks that using it is a dog whistle?
 
Becuase i remember back last year when the BLM were at their peak, there were people (for what it’s worth, mainly those who are not really big into politics or really care about them) using that slogan while also being supportive of the protests as well.
 
So is this just a few well-intentioned people doing a misguided attempt at showing support that quickly got taken over by the Alt-Right?

Yep, cause the Alt-Right will hijack anything they can grab.
