If I dimed out my friends to avoid doing time, I simply would not pretend to be them crying in a fake jail
This is "Walk Away" founder Brandon Straka β€” who did not serve any prison time in his Jan. 6 case thanks to, as his attorneys described it in their sentencing memos, "substantial" cooperation with investigators.

Had to find full video of @MrChuckD doing β€œBring the Noise” live last night with @Anthrax. Amazing. invidious.fdn.fr/aAm0NhjaevI
Again, the reason most of us stay in LA (longer than we should) is because sometimes you get to witness MIND BLOWING SHIT like this... from last night at the Hollywood Palladium. cc @MrChuckD @Anthrax

Iceland is the world’s biggest consumer of SSRIs. They’ve had 5 gun homicides since 2020; in the US, there have been over 30,000 in that time. Japan is one of the largest video game markets in the world. They have only 10 shooting deaths a year; the US has 40,000. It’s the guns
What drugs and/or psychiatric drugs was he on for his mind to be ruined in alternate reality games that caused him to commit a mass shooting? His parents know. The police know. School, arrest, hospital records? The public DESERVES to know.

Whatever else you think about originalism, it is peculiar that the question of whether women have the right to control their own pregnancies depends entirely on texts that not a single woman was allowed to help draft, vote on, or ratify.

Marilyn Manson is a pathetic loser. This is a superstar.
Wow, Evan Rachel Wood’s impressions of Madonna, Alanis, and Janis Joplin on @jimmyfallon are really good. I think her Alanis impression is the best.

Gen X is like "79.7% of us should have jobs, regardless of labor market conditions."

Fatherly advice to my imaginary Twitter son: So firstly, child, it's important to have values and take a real stand on the things that matter. And then you need to be a real prick about it. Like a totally unbearable fuckwad.

The only real question that remains at this point is what are we going to do about it.

We should be admitting many more. @RepJasonCrow @SenatorBennet @Hickenlooper @POTUS @SecBlinken
These numbers presented together suggest the DHS is counting every category towards its 100k goal/cap for Ukrainians

Happy to be the 263rd 😎 on @BackerKit for AURORA & THE EAGLE #1 (48 pages of fun Canadian superheroes). Thanks @ashleyvrobinson
For me, the best show in TV history, and I don't think there is a particularly close 2nd.

JPM says lifting the Jones Act would "only" save American drivers $0.10/gal on gas. The USA consumes almost 135 BILLION gallons of gas/year (EIA). If everyone saved 0.10/gal (not that easy, but still), that'd "only" save us $13.5B. Per year. Cmon, man. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Well, well, well. Imagine that!
.@D_A_Irwin examines how the world economy has evolved over the past 40 years & finds globalization is not a zero-sum game. The vast economic gains made by poor countries in the past few decades have not come at the expense of advanced economies. Explore: piie.com/blogs/realtime-econ…

Congress needs to open the floodgates for imports NOW. Nix tariffs; automatically admit any infant formula approved by a competent regulator abroad (EU, UK, NZ, etc); & help parents navigate labels/serving size/etc, as needed. See: @SenMikeLee's FORMULA Act No more small ball.

Lots of yelling at companies for profiteering, insufficient patriotism; some threats of punitive measures; little apparent interest in looking at incentives these companies face. Like whether it makes sense to make a 30-year investment in a new refining facility today
