    Charges Issued In Breonna Taylor Case

    It's good Mr. Williams is willing to speak out. Hopefully that will help people better understand it's not that the process is a complete sham. But here's a different take from another former federal prosecutor, who is now a law professor at Georgetown. The author is Black. I’m a former...

    Will Democrats accept a Republican win?

    The article is weak sauce, claiming to make the case that Democrats haven't recognized the legitimacy of Republican presidents because they've cited reasons, mostly obscure and soon overlooked by most Democrats, why the GOP candidate won. It's like saying IU fans don't accept that Duke beat...

    Meanwhile, Guv is upgrading us to Stage 5

    So as long as nobody you know is dead this whole thing is BS? Good luck with that.

    Meanwhile, Guv is upgrading us to Stage 5

    I'm not sure I agree with this assessment. I've been as depressed as anyone by the poor response by our citizens to COVID. But ultimately I am convinced we would have taken a different path with rational leadership. There were never any shared goals associated with wearing masks, like...

    Charges Issued In Breonna Taylor Case

    Apparently one shot was fired at police. From what I can tell, the response was that police fired at least close to 20 shots. Maybe Taylor would have been killed even if only 1 bullet was fired in response. But there has to be a line between an appropriate police response to a threat and...

    Charges Issued In Breonna Taylor Case

    It doesn't seem like murder fits the circumstances. But there does need to be accountability for police actions that go beyond appropriate response. Firing dozens of rounds into a dark apartment with no return fire seems like a criminal abuse of power.

    Charges Issued In Breonna Taylor Case

    Nobody has the answers, but we all need to see it as "our" problem, and not "their" problem.

    Charges Issued In Breonna Taylor Case

    No, it goes way beyond this summer. We're sitting on a powder keg unless we start paying attention to the problems of race in this country.

    Charges Issued In Breonna Taylor Case

    This reminds me of the night a few years ago in Baltimore following Freddie Gray's death. Nothing to do but hunker down. Stay safe, MTIOF and everyone else in the area.

    Guess McConnell is taking a page from Obama..

    This post made me think of this Talking Heads song ... Then we come to the farmlands, and the undeveloped areas. And I have learned how these things work together. I see the parkway that passes through them all. And I have learned how to look at these things and I say, I wouldn't live there...

    QAnon is the new Teaparty

    I would say the same about BLM. I know there are organizations that have formed under that slogan, but in my opinion that's unfortunate because it has led people to the assumption that these organizations are behind every protest. That's not the case.

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes on at 87

    The core argument is when a fetus is a person and honest people disagree. And every pro-choice person I know would prefer that abortions were rare, because they are difficult physically and emotionally. No matter your perspective, we should understand and respect the opposing views...

    Oligarchy

    I don't know about national security concerns, but the biggest threat to our personal privacy is not the government (even China), it's private industry. FB is the least of my concerns, anyone who uses it (I don't) should understand their business model is to sell what you post. Here are the...

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg passes on at 87

    New administrations routinely suspend all pending regulatory actions for review upon taking office. Lame duck Congresses also routinely pass CRs for the newly-elected Congress to pass a budget. The Administration and GOP Senate is within its rights. Just like the next Administration and...
