And the reason those facilities are in Virginia is because it was a confederate state during the Civil War and soo took back the land it loaned to the capital.

No?

The DC retrocession to VA was in 1847. The Civil War happened decades later in 1861. And most of those facilities were build between the 1940s and 1990s.

Alexandria, and what would become modern day Arlington and parts of Fairfax were under Union occupation for a majority of the war.

Welp the eviction moratorium is over and sure enough the wave of evictions everyone was predicting is going out. Around 4 million are at risk of losing their homes; over 1% of the total population is set to become homeless.

A quick googling tells me that a little over half a million is the average number of homeless in the US on any given night. That number is set to octuple in a few short weeks.

And the government is just pointing fingers right now. Biden's saying Congress needs to be the one to help people, it's not his job! The Supreme Court is saying Congress needs to help people, it's not their job! Congress is saying the CDC has to help people, it's not their job! The CDC is standing there confused saying it is Congress' and Biden's job.

"Richest country in the world" is about to have the a mass homeless problem.

Edit: Wait no, more googling tells me I was wrong. About 15 million are at risk of losing their homes. So something like 4-5% of the nation is about to become homeless, 30 times the national average!

So basically more "Capitalism working as intended" news.

As Percy Bysshe Shelley was saying:
"To him that hath, more shall be given; and from him that hath not, the little that he hath shall be taken away. The rich have become richer, and the poor have become poorer; and the vessel of the State is driven between the Scylla and Charybdis of anarchy and despotism."
200 years later, that quote is still perfectly on point.

The eviction issue is hardly a capitalism issue, especially when you look at the causes of the situation. What would be more efficient then just an eviction moratorium would be relaxing it and increasing cash transfers. I would bet hard money though that if nothing we're done we wouldn't see the homeless rate 30 times higher.

The Pentagon is under lockdown after there was an active shooter outside it. One police officer has already been killed.

"Hah, since you're a liberal you must be so upset about Cuomo, I bet it makes you so mad to see him face charges".

"Nah, fuck him, he's a dick".


A bunch of Trumpers I've seen can't seem to wrap their heads around the idea that other people don't join cults of personality around their party leadership. Cuomo is a molesting sex pest and should resign or be kicked out. I won't shed a tear to see him go, even if he somehow got replaced by a Republican. Scum is scum, regardless of party.

Yeah I feel nothing about Cuomo. I don't even know who the hell he is anymore.

Meanwhile Texas' governor is wants to prove himself toward the rest of the country that he wants to do what Florida is doing.

With Cuomo while his sexual assault allegations are bad and need to be treated seriously I'm also annoyed with how awfully he handled the coronavirus in his state while the news cheered him. It's almost comical that they ended up picking what might have been the worst governor to show off to the country.

From the sound of things, New York is fixing to impeach his ass faster than either of the Trump dealies. I half-expect them to invoke the Spaceballs "short short version".

To be a bit fair to Biden on this matter, he does also have the small problem that the last extension barely survived a vote in the Supreme Court, and Grabby Mcblackout has already sworn to block additional extensions. Plus there's the possibility that challenging the court might result in a ruling that makes it even harder for the administration to respond to future health crises.
The White House has been clear that Biden would have liked to extend the federal eviction moratorium because of the spread of the highly contagious delta variant of the coronavirus. But there were also concerns that challenging the court could lead to a ruling restricting the administration’s ability to respond to future public health crises.

On a 5-4 vote in late June, the Supreme Court allowed the broad eviction ban to continue through the end of July. One of those in the majority, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, made clear he would block any additional extensions unless there was “clear and specific congressional authorization.”

Republicans are complaining about undocumented immigrants again, this time on the basis that they're unvaccinated.

The solution is simple, vaccinate them if they're caught. This solves several problems, they're no longer personally unvaccinated, we move one person closer to ending the pandemic, and we use up doses that Americans are refusing to take.

The problem is you're framing it in an altruistic manner.

Swap some words around and frame it in a more White Man's Burden manner and Republicans will be all over that.

On the same thought, as one guy put it you can end the pandemic if you just use reverse psychology. Tell Republicans that they'll be banned getting the vaccine by, oh, October. They won't be, but that'll convince them to get it. Shoot tell them that by November we'll be shipping all unused doses off to a "brown" or "black" country and we'll hit 100% full vaccination overnight as they storm pharmacies all over the nation like they stormed the Capitol.
