The Appeal to Heaven flag isn't just tied to Jan 6.

It's a Christian nationalist symbol.

Christian nationalists believe that the law of the land is not the Constitution, but instead the law of God as they interpret it.

Do you see the problem with Alito flying this flag?

@rbreich Folks, remember that after every movement of non-conforming to any system. There are counter movements. True, in going from conforming movements, there are non-conforming ones.

The Constitution was the means of government to prevent these movements from causing insurrection and strive. It's better to talk obligingly than to just obliged blindly. Are we a thinking culture?

Live Nation/Ticketmaster is a monopoly, which is why it can get away with providing awful service, charging exorbitant prices, and tacking on fees as high as 75% of the ticket price.

The DoJ will announce an antitrust lawsuit against the company this week.

This is a big deal.

Memo to the media:

If you're trying not to "take sides" in a struggle between democracy and fascism, you've taken the side of fascism.

Remember: If markets were actually competitive, corporations would keep their prices as low as possible as they competed for customers.

Instead, the concentration of the American economy into the hands of a few corporate giants gives them the power to raise prices with impunity.

@rbreich consumers have some power. They can buy what they need not what they want. Snacks, soda, expensive trucks, etc are unnecessary. Companies will react if consumers cut spending

Humane AI Pin founders run for the exits, one month after launch

One month after launch of its "smartphone replacement," Humane already seems doomed.

A pro-insurrection flag flew outside Samuel Alito's home after January 6th.

Clarence Thomas’ wife worked to overturn the 2020 election.

Both justices are set to rule on cases related to January 6th and subverting the election.

Is it any wonder Americans don't trust SCOTUS?

They just wear better clothes and live in nicer neighborhoods - and do their work with a pen rather than with a flagpole crushing a Capitol Policeman’s head. Not to let the rest of the “Conservative” majority off the hook - they are the same and should all be dealt with as

Trump keeps touting plans to deport millions of undocumented workers.

His vile attacks are as dumb as they are racist and xenophobic.

These people strengthen our communities, contribute to the economy, do essential jobs, and pay billions in taxes.

Don't fall for Trump's lies.

@rbreich he's openly embraced it for a long while - remember the 'good people on both sides' blather after the tiki fascist rally in 2017 or so? Just because his first (and hopefully only) administration was more 'space balls' than 'star wars' doesn't mean he was less nasty and hateful during his first attempt to reich-ify this country.
