Rep. Ilhan Omar has won her primary despite centrists setting piles of cash on fire
 
3:43 AM
and republicans!

4:45 AM
@TimStone oh god I have been informed that this pile was ten million dollars big

Ave
6:09 AM
@Unionhawk the what
 
@Unionhawk I can't find any evidence of this
 
 
1 hour later…
7:25 AM
@Nzall yeah seems to be over 3 million
July 17th. No way he raised 7 million in 3 weeks after getting 3 in a quarter.
 
@Stormblessed oh, I misread this entirely. I thought it read "Ilhan Omar has won her primary despite setting piles of cash on fire" (didn't see the centrists in there)
 
 
5 hours later…
12:33 PM
lol Trump congratulating the QAnon candidate who won the Georgia runoff is just very normal and cool
 
> Woods, meanwhile, told his deputies on Tuesday to stop wearing masks in most cases. While officers can still mask up in areas including the courthouse and county jail, they must immediately take off the face coverings afterward. Deputies working special events are also forbidden from wearing masks, Woods said.
 
@BradC Like Florida's not bad enough with covid.
 
@Frank Yep. I mean, its one thing to not require masks (which I would also disagree with), but to ban them (and visitors to the Sheriff's office!!!) from wearing them, that's just crazy
 
@BradC Hey asshole, hows about you leave the science and medicine to the scientists and doctors. 'K? Thanks.
 
@BradC Banning it from visitors is a simple logic process: if these sheep are scared, they won't bother making complaints about blue overreach.
 
1:54 PM
respectfully sheriff,
you're a landlocked county in florida
I think you're good on the visitors thing especially now
 
man it's going to be a long 3 months lol
 
@TimStone the tl;dr on this video is that they're building outdoor shelters which addresses some but not most of the weather-related concerns
rubs temples furiously
 
@TimStone The fact that the teacher uses the word "fundraiser" tells you everything you need to know about education funding in the US.
 
> A research team at the University of Florida succeeded in isolating live virus from aerosols collected at a distance of seven to 16 feet from patients hospitalized with Covid-19 — farther than the six feet recommended in social distancing guidelines.
 
3:31 PM
@TimStone At moments like these, I can only keep in mind the words of King Henry II of England
 
"Hello."
 
@Yuuki Something about a turbulent member of the clergy. Sorry, it was a poorly thought out joke
it was a dumb joke that I shouldn't have made
 
3:51 PM
@TimStone There are so many frustrating things here completely separate from Covid-19. Like the same teacher stays with their class for 8 (eight!) years? Do you know how much extra work that is? Teachers generally have to create their own lesson plans, and they usually teach the same lesson plan for as long as they're teaching the same course/grade, only updating them as the curriculum changes.
 
It sounds like this is probably some kind of private or charter school
 
Yeah, maybe, but still.
 
The Detroit Waldorf School is a private PreK-8 Waldorf school located at 2555 Burns, Detroit, Michigan in an Albert Kahn-designed school in the historic Indian Village neighborhood. In 2016, the building was designated a Michigan State Historic Site. The school is the only remaining private independent school in Detroit, and is one of the city's highest-rated schools, receiving five stars on GreatSchools.org. As of 2016, 240 students were enrolled in the school. == Building History == In 1878, Rev. James D. Liggett settled in Detroit and established a small, independent school for girls...
Ah, yeah, it is
Which doesn't make it any less weird
But also why they can be so weird, I guess
 
The technical term is apparently "looping", which if done for 3-4 years might be okay. However, there are so many problems with doing this for 8 years that the benefits cannot outweigh the problems.
 
4:07 PM
@MBraedley what on earth?
 
Yeah we did this for high level math in high school
The honors math teachers rotate in this manner
Except AP Calculus which was always the same guy
 
Yeah, we had a pair of advanced math courses, pre-cal 10/11 and pre-cal 11/12 and then calculus, and the same teacher taught the pre-cal courses. But that (and the arts classes) was the exception. I had different teachers for each of my physics, bio, chem, and English classes.
 
@TimStone Waldorf schools are very weird
though I would have expected more something like full COVID denialism from them
 
@TimStone wait, what
 
4:36 PM
@Unionhawk @Wipqozn I hope my comment about Henry II wasn't out of line
 
4:49 PM
@TimStone this is the guy who loves to scream about George Soros on Twitter
 
5:05 PM
He literally facebooked this
Which is just an edit of THIS
 
@Stormblessed Didn't Facebook just make new rules on Jewish caricatures?
 
@Nzall (this was like 3 years ago and he deleted it)
It’s really fucked up that the son of the most powerful Israeli man is trying to normalize this disgusting anti-semitism
 
6:04 PM
High-quality Survey USA poll of Kansas out
Trump +7, Marshall +2
Very high approval for governor Kelly
Bollier has +13 approval (but a lot of no opinions)
 
 
2 hours later…
7:50 PM
 
@MadScientist Does no one realize that opening schools now just means they get closed for even longer in just a short time?
"Hey, let's all go back to school! Have to get that learning in!" opens for a week, closes for a month
 
@Frank We have something like slightly above 1000 cases a day right now here in Germany, and I'm not sure we'll manage to reopen the schools as planned. Doing this with the number of cases like in the US seems to be sheer insanity
 
@MadScientist Doing it without being able to distance in the classroom is a problem, even.
I can see opening if there's incredible levels of enforcement.
And spraying down the lockers every five minutes with sanitizer.
 
If you get the cases low enough, you can probably do that. But that is extremely hard if you're not an island
@Frank that's pretty much useless as far as we know
 
8:06 PM
@MadScientist Mostly an observation of how teens are walking germ factories.
 
8:18 PM
@Frank If you think that that US governments (local, state, etc.) won't do their level best to inconvenience and stunt the growth of citizens in service to a cult of personality, then you should do some more research.
 
8:33 PM
@Yuuki The logic train is just mind-boggling.
Trump is killing the very people that support him. And kids are collateral damage.
 
Things make so much more sense when you assume that the primary motivation is hate.
 
@Yuuki Things make much more sense once you realize that it's not actually necessary for them to make any sense at all
 
8:51 PM
MadScientist: the thing is, they do make sense, it's just that the lens they make sense through is spite, not self-interest.
 
@ToxicFrog oh lol, the characters around do and spite don't render on here. Just placeholder boxes
 
Asadlkfgjksdfdsf I think I've broken my relay again somehow, or maybe it was always broken
They're meant to be bold and italic markers
 
9:33 PM
51 - 36 - 13 other/unsure
 
9:48 PM
word cloud of Kennedy impressions
 
no more kennedys challenge 2020 let's go
especially no more kennedy the thirds
 
I'm ok as long as they run in stuff that is really competitive. like if an alright one like him ran for governor that'd be good.
 
I mean I suppose in my power rankings of Bad Democrats he ranks probably somewhere between John Hickenlooper (future secretary of the interior or whatever) and idk, uh
But that's mainly from a "you don't get to stand there and act like you support stuff while you are actively primarying Ed Markey" standpoint
Also I swear to god if I'm right about Hickenlooper interior I'm going to be mad
My alternate prediction is Energy
Oh god what golden parachute will jk3 get if he loses both primaries somehow
 
@Unionhawk both primaries?
he's not running again in MA-04
 
Stand corrected, you can only run in 1 so he is indeed not on the MA4 ballot
hmm only on Energy and Commerce recently, I don't think he's evil enough to be commerce secretary probably
So he'll probably just write a book or something
 
 
1 hour later…
11:38 PM
@TimStone "i like to cut it lower"
What does that even mean?
 
@Yuuki "I don't acknowledge reality"
 
@Yuuki I guess @MBraedley has the charitable explanation because the other equally plausible explanation is not great!
Okay, the actual video suggests more or less the former, that for whatever reason he doesn't want to overstate what the percentage is so he intentionally lowballed it?
Which…okay…I guess
Except that it was a weird thing to even mention in the first place!
 
Manitoba MP submits motion to convert CERB benefit to permanent basic income globalnews.ca/news/7268759/…
> “COVID-19 has demonstrated that we do have the resources. We must ensure all individuals in Canada can thrive in dignity and that means making investments to ensure basic human rights for all,” she said.
> Motion-46’s goal is to fill the gaps in income and inequalities that have been “worsened by the pandemic.”
 
> Timothy Ennis, the chief strategist for the UMass Amherst College Democrats, admitted in the chats that he was a “Neal Stan” and said he felt conflicted about involving the chapter of the College Democrats in a future attack on Morse. “But I need a job,” concluded Ennis. “Neal will give me an internship.”
> Also last fall, Ennis was driving through New Hampshire with Clare Sheedy, a fellow College Democrat, as both were campaigning for Pete Buttigieg. “He spoke very highly of Mr. Neal,” Sheedy told The Intercept. “What he said to me was he wanted Neal to be his ‘in’ to politics and work his way up from there.”
I mean it's no bread price fixing but that checks out
