I am not responsible for Stevie Van Zandt’s hyperbole. He is right though that if Buckley goes down, CU gets neutered, since corporations (as people) would then face spending limits.
Yes, fuckery can be used to get around them. But at least they’d have to work at it.
Of course you’re not; sorry if it came across that way.
I can’t deny, the song is kinda catchy
the Trump administration — I never say just Trump, because he’s not by himself — has violated everything that Jesus said ought to be the first priority of nations. That is, to care for the poor, care for the least of these. And so it grieves me that brothers and sisters who claim to follow Jesus would do this and would be so loud on things that Jesus is so quiet about and so quiet on the very thing Jesus is so loud about.
Preach on brother! Amen!
“The deposit’s owners argued that the state’s purpose in passing the ban was improper. Virginia argued that nothing in the federal Atomic Energy Act kept it from banning uranium mining. The Supreme Court agreed.”
“The Pittsylvania County deposit is the largest known uranium deposit in the country.”
i was having a hard time parsing what the supreme court gerrymandering case means… Too many double negatives… so they said no to the state republicans saying no to democrats trying to say no to gerrymandering? ha. do I have that right?
You got it! The case had already been ruled in favor of Dems. This is the Republicans getting their hands slapped for whining about it.
There’s a Cracker Barrel joke in there, but I’m not even gonna look for it. Honestly, good on Cracker Barrel.
Curious though how all the headlines call Grayson Fritts anti-gay, rather than say genocidally anti-gay.
Anti gay vs. Genocidally anti gay. Hmm, Venn diagram appears to be a perfect circle. Only difference seems to be “I want to kill them all” vs “I wish someone would kill them all.” Yeah, not really different.
Not totally sure about that but when I heard about earlier today I was like when Cracker Barrel says turn down the gayhate it has to be something special.
Absolutely and unequivocally.
My thought was that as with corporately appropriated journalism’s systemic resistance to using racist to describe genocidal racists, so too we’re seeing the same bullshit regarding LGTBQ+ reporting. The reporters might want to say what they mean, but the shareholder capitalists put the chokehold on meaning what is said.
Tennessee prosecutors said Friday they’ll take a fresh look at the work of a detective who, as a Baptist pastor, allegedly delivered homophobic sermons.
Knox County Sheriff’s Det. Grayson Fritts said during a sermon last weekend that gay people are “freaks” and “reprobates” who are “worthy of death” and should be tried and executed by the government, according to NBC affiliate WBIR in Knoxville.
Yeah, a review is probably a good idea. (Although, is any of this really a surprise to them, or something they’re forced to do now that he’s hit the fan?)
Maybe they should also take “Grayson Fritters” off their menu.
Statistically some of the reporters are among the continuum of the targeted demographic. Consequently at least some of the Style Guide bigotry is not about the journalists but the serfdom of late-stage capitalism.
I was thinking more the Knox County Sheriff’s Department and the 6th Judicial District. During his 19 years on the force, did no one have the slightest inkling that this guy’s homicidal homophobia might be a problem?
Even if he’s only felt safe to be loudly open about his views in recent years (Thanks Trump!), I doubt this is a sudden revelation to them. This review is probably more of a Cover Their
Asses Legal and PR problem exercise than any kind of remedial effort to solve the deep-rooted problem.
