850k jobs created in June.

The most Jobs created in the first 5 months of any presidency.

Huge economic growth according to forecasts.

Looks like the recovery is going pretty well.

But I thought Trump generally maintaining Obama's "lackluster" GDP growth was the best economy in all of history?

"Make America Mine Again"

Experts on authoritarianism are saying this is just the beginning of a new rise of right wing authoritarianism across the globe.

And some just can't see it for some reason, like my mom. Biden is destroying America she tells me, but gives no examples other then the border. Go to the border dumbass, Yeah, so the and the other right wing nutters can accuse him of doing it for a photo op like they did VP Harris. Perhaps a better use of their time would be trying to fix the root causes of the migration instead of a meaningless photo op trip they'd criticize him for anyway. Of course she gets her news from extremist sources like aclj.org  Roll Eyes

Not an expert on the subject. But there definitely was right wing populist wave going on. Trump, Bolsonaro in Brazil, the Brexiters in the UK and Boris Johnson plus other countries like Hungary, Poland and even India I guess etc.


Now what has happened with the pandemic is that a lot of people have realized these men are not magic bullets able to fix everything. Unlike president Camacho's three point plan!

Yeah the way they're treating Harris really exposes that they will just criticize whatever this admin does either way. Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

I can't help but see parallels with the whole manufactured crisis at the border and what the GOP in my state is doing, fear mongering over the death of a jogger killed by teens in a stolen car. Teen carjackings in this state have declined for the past 30 years, but because 2019 was an aberrational low, the rise back to normal levels for 2020 has been seized on along with some particularly offensive anecdotes. They are also baselessly blaming recent changes in the law.

And the solution I've countered with is the same thing you are saying; you need to address the root causes. Throwing more police at the problem is like trying to put out an electrical fire without hitting the circuit breaker.

Yep at least Biden and Harris are trying to fix the root cause, corruption, cartels, food insecurity, climate change. Also nobody wants to talk about our role in creating these messes in these countries with our foreign policy.

While accusing the left of being authoritarians engaging in "cancel culture" out of one side of their mouth, the right is recently busy attacking teachers for teaching sex ed and now even suggesting we put bodycams on teachers (so much for small government). Tucker Carlson even hit the low of weaponizing the concept of police civilian review boards against teachers. As if we don't already give enough power to motivated local ideologues to shape curriculum...

And as Sam points out in the video, this has been going on for far longer than the supposed "cancel culture" phenomenon, as right wingers have made blacklists of professors for decades.

Very impressed with Biden's pick for head of the FTC. Anyone who gets the Wall Street Journal into a tizzy must be doing good work.

Also, as a gearhead, I'm happy he's backing the right-to-repair. It's primarily aimed at farmers (because that's where it's the worst), but could have implications for many kinds of products. Farmers have been unable to repair their own tractors because the manufacturers prevent them and require service at a dealer (which can be very far away in farm country and mean downtime that loses them money).

Apparently the audience at CPAC literally CHEERED low vaccination rates. How many red flags does it take for fence sitters to see that the extremists are now the majority on the right? Oh right, I forgot, there are some lefty tweens on twitter who say overzealous things sometimes so that evens it out!

About fucking time.

I've been wrapped up in more local news today (the main centerpiece of our small town was literally burning down last night).

I just saw this.  And it couldn't make me happier.

If you're guilty you face the consequences whether you're a D or an R. Nobody above the law period. Now do Matt Gaetz, he's literally being investigated for child sex trafficking! I'm not hearing anything though from the save the children crowd on the right.

Senate has passed the bipartisan infrastructure deal sending it to the house, huge win for Biden. Now lets get the larger reconciliation package done.

Nope! I am about an hour north (and a little east) of there. And even so, we don't go to Danbury Mall.  It's had security issues for awhile now.

Pretty shitty situation, though.  Kid wasn't even involved in the altercation....just took the bullet. Sounds like she's going to be OK.
