Americans are quitting their jobs at record rates—but that doesn't mean they're not working! Instead many people (especially those in low-pay industries) are taking new, higher paying jobs. It's a worker's labor market, and that's good for America. apricitas.substack.com/p/ame…

We need to change course on how we handle public safety in San Francisco. We can't be a place where anything goes on the street. Today, I am announcing a series of new steps to address public safety in our city. londonbreed.medium.com/a-saf…

HKUMed shows Omicron infects and multiplies 70X faster than Delta in the human bronchus, which may explain why it transmits faster, BUT also shows Omicron infection in the lung is significantly LOWER than the original virus, which may be an indicator of lower disease severity. 🧵

Fact, this buffoon looks down when she sees me at the Capitol, this whole story is made up. Sad she thinks bigotry gets her clout. Anti-Muslim bigotry isn’t funny & shouldn’t be normalized. Congress can’t be a place where hateful and dangerous Muslims tropes get no condemnation.
Replying to @patriottakes
Over the Thanksgiving break, Lauren Boebert said she was recently in a Capitol elevator with Ilhan Omar when a fretful Capitol police officer ran up. Lauren Boebert said: “Well, she doesn’t have a backpack. We should be fine.” Boebert then called Ilhan Omar, “jihad squad.”

Some universities' reaction to the Rittenhouse verdict, @conor64 writes, "is an illustration of a bigger problem in academia: Administrators make ideologically selective efforts to soothe the feelings of upset faculty members and students." on.theatln.tc/RG6aTtr

"If a man dares post how good she looks, that guy is a creep. Message her privately and that’s “sliding into her DMs.” Men are supposed to ignore how women look which, seeing as men have started wars over the beauty of women, has traditionally been somewhat of a challenge."
My piece on the unsexiness of modern life, and how that predictably is leading to less actual sex, is in the December issue of @TheSpectator, and now out from behind the paywall. spectatorworld.com/topic/lif…

Everyone who is saying that Kyle Rittenhouse would have been found guilty if he were black should recall that Kenneth Walker (Breonna Taylor's bf) shot a cop (!) in self-defense and was cleared of all charges (and rightly so). It's amazing how selective people's memories are.

I keep reading about how “cancel culture” is rampant on the left and yet I’ve had people on the right tag my employer like a half dozen times because they don’t like my tweets. In this case, I compared Nikki Haley’s expertise on Iran policy to Bill Buckner’s fielding 😂
