I just sit here, mouth agape, for so many reasons, like…. Biden deserves all the loving criticism for his handling of this whole shitshow.

But you cannot, in good conscience, sit there and think Trump is better. And yes - it loving sucks - but the way our system is currently set up, you pick one or the other. You hold your nose, you puke in the rhododendrons afterwards, but that’s your choice.

We're six months to the election, which means the armchair leftist doomscrollers are entering their most vocal "better things aren't possible" phase. Better in their minds to let the country burn entirely than to consider incremental progress to still be progress because of one specific sticking point that's not being addressed (while many others are, and the incumbent administration is straight up not actively building policies that disenfranchise and, in some cases, lead directly to higher mortalities among various sorts of minority groups).

Anyone who thinks that "trying to slow down the degeneration of basic rights for American citizens and fumbling on some things" and "actively aiming to turn the country into an evangelical ethnostate" are the same political ballpark -- hell, the same loving sport -- should get their internet privileges restricted to a 1200 baud modem and an 80x24 text-only terminal from 1975.

About 10 minutes ago in suburban Vancouver with a 3-second exposure from my phone. Much dimmer than that for the Mark 1 Eyeball, but if the power in the area all went out for about fifteen minutes I bet it'd look pretty bright unassisted.

This is a man who wrote a movie specifically so he could get to suck tequila off Salma Hayek's toes. He is such an enormous, well-known pervert that I'm confident the only reason he hasn't been memory holed by Hollywood as a whole is because he's got Epstein-level dirt on half of Los Angeles.

Isn't British journalism ludicrously constrained in how they can cover the royal family?

British journalism is ludicrously constrained in how you have to cover anything. Use the wrong phrasing about something you don't have grand jury grade evidence for, and boom, enjoy your court case.

Ofcom has the legal authority to censor pretty much any news.

They've caught a lot of poo poo in recent years for letting outlets like GBNews (which is basically the OANN of the UK) skate while nitpicking the BBC.

Ofcom is kinda fun in that they regularly post all of the violations they've received and acted upon in the past however long and sometimes it's just the most stupid mundane poo poo.

Other times, it's someone blasting porno through a radio station's mixing desk.

Project 2025 types straight up want to be able to go back to casually calling black people the n-word when one has the audacity to use the "whites only" water fountain, so the Hard R tape would probably be a poll bump for Trump these days.

Notorious Canadian serial killer Robert Pickton is dead. Shanked in prison. Correctional Services of Canada is saying someone stabbed him in the head multiple times.

Hell of a past 24 hours these have been.
